Game 40 Thread: May 17 @ Barves, 4:30p

Larry's just now getting around to seeing Ted?

Hyn-Jin Ryu (4-2, 3.40) vs. Paul Maholm (4-4, 3.94)

Tough talk from the comfort of your animal print retirement sofa, Larry. Allow me to introduce you to one Hyun-Jin Ryu. You may not know this, but he's the most reliable Dodger pitcher not named Kershaw at this moment (at least until we're sure Greinke's 100%). I don't expect you to do much stat-licking while you're doing whatever it is you're doing in retirement, Larry, but Ryu's in the top 20 in K/9, the top 25 in FIP, and the top 50 in ERA.

Plus, he can do cool levitation shit like this:


Oh, and Larry? It's cute that you think Beckett is still a threat.

I guess he didn't get the memo on Josh "Meatball Express" Beckett. NL hitters are licking their chops to face Beckett.

BJ Killeen said...

Beckett is a Yankee spy sent to undermine the Dodgers before the meet. There can be no other explanation.

If I click the trash icon under my line up comment, will that allow me to trash Cruz?

Hideo Nomo said...

You can try to throw him in the trash can, but he'll just pop out again.

Hideo Nomo said...

Thank you! Try the veal!

Paul said...

Cruz is the new Urine!

Paul said...

New Urine same bad taste.

Orel said...

Gnomes with the zinger!

Orel said...

Odds Jupton will homer off Ryu?

Hideo Nomo said...

Probably very good.

Paul said...

Odds of one of us being hammered by the 5th inning?

Orel said...

A mortal lock.

Hideo Nomo said...

Odds Paul was already hammered when he typed that?

Orel said...

Ken Gurnick ‏@kengurnick 7m

Jerry Hairston, rehabbing his groin in Arizona, injured his knee left. Scheduled for an exam today. http://Dodgers.com

karen said...

Dodger fans representing at the Ted.

Paul said...

@Nomo

Never tell my liver the odds.

karen said...

Punto is going to be our All Star rep this year.

Spank said...

Urine = Not cute

BJ Killeen said...

Cruz hit? Stunned.

Spank said...

Well if Timmeh represents the Gnats at the all star game then there will be two putos on the NL roster.




thank you. goodnight

Orel said...

Be careful. You know Ned will sign Timmeh to a three-year, $36M contract.

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

Odds are!

BJ Killeen said...

@Dodgers: Remember for every strikeout you see, tweet "@Dodgers #whiff." It's for the kids: http://t.co/Q8gRU4t36t

karen said...

We had to come rolling into Atlanta just in time for Heyward's return from the DL.

karen said...

Dee not standing for Defense.

Hideo Nomo said...

This is suddenly not going well.

Hideo Nomo said...

Thanks for killeen the rally, B.J. Upton!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Please, nomo bad puns.

Hideo Nomo said...

Ryu not entertained?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dee Gordon with homerun #2 right here. I called it.

Cliff Beefpile said...

RYU!

BJ Killeen said...

Ryu
Knew what To do
Got us 2
Whew

Cliff Beefpile said...

Run(s)!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Rally started after I opened my first Beer. Coincidence? I don't think so. You're welcome

Cliff Beefpile said...

Frankly, DBT, I'm more than a little disappointed you didn't start drinking at work.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Trust me, I thought about it

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Beefy Cliff - one of these days we should meet up at Glory Days (Carson/woodruff) for beers and a Dodger game.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Crazy as it sounds, I've never been to Glory Days for a game. I've been after a game, but not during. I've been to Cirivello's too, but my good luck places were Legends and Coach's (Seal Beach).

Cliff Beefpile said...

I say "good luck" like they've worked so well. Prior to the Kings winning the Cup last year, the last of my teams to win anything was UCLA basketball in '95. Dodgers in '88 before that.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I don't know Coaches, but Legends and Cirivelos are fine establishments. One of these days we should make it out.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Van Slyke!

Van Kemp!

Orel said...

Howard Cole ‏@Howard_Cole 3m

Has anyone heard anything about Jon SooHoo leaving the Dodgers?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Van Deep!!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

I'm liking Van Slyke.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Silly Cruz

Cliff Beefpile said...

But yes, we'll definitely have to watch a game @ one of Lakewood/Long Beach's fine sporting establishments.

BJ Killeen said...

Big mistake Dummie. Uh Donnie

BJ Killeen said...

@howard. What did you hear about SooHoo??!

BJ Killeen said...

Sorry. @ orel

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Uribe would have ate that line drive at 3B

Cliff Beefpile said...

Well, I'm sure we all saw that coming. Dammit.

BJ Killeen said...

Thanks Don. Good call.

karen said...

Our bullpen are a bunch of arsonists.

Spank said...

Crapola

Orel said...

Uh.

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Orel said...

@BJK: Looks like a false alarm re: SooHoo.

Orel said...

Not sure why Mattingly keeps using Guerrier when we have a lead.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Because he's Joe Torre's protege.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Colorado comes back to tie it up 4-4.

BJ Killeen said...

Thx Orel. Was gonna send Scott in for a interview! :-D

Cliff Beefpile said...

We're bad at defense.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I Van Like!

Paul said...

Oh no we suck again!

BJ Killeen said...

harumph...

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

See the ball catch the ball. Win the fucking game!

Neeebs said...

Has James Loney passed his drug test this year? His stat line is fairly amazing.

Steve Sax said...

10-6 Rox over SF, T7 in Col

Hideo Nomo said...

PGTUP

FJL now means Fuck James Loney.
