Game 41 Thread: May 18 @ Barves, 4p

If it wasn't for that Medlen kid....

Chris Capuano (1-2, 6.60) vs. Kris Medlen (1-5, 3.44).

Do the Dodgers possess road toughness? After getting whacked by Justin Upton and his MLB-leading 14th home run (and a granny at that), the team turns to Capuano, fresh off his first win of the season — over Miami. Atlanta ain't Miami. Will Cap notice the difference?

GREAT catch by Matty, Atta boy Bison!

Dusty Baker said...

Things I learned from SoSG:

Miami is not Atlanta.

karen said...

Hey DB...I thought I was on my own for a minute there.

Dusty Baker said...

Always have your back, Karen!

karen said...

A blooper. Although in the old days I've heard players refer to that as a "Duck fart".

MR.F said...

I'm here for a little bit, Karen!

karen said...

DB & Mr. F...Yay! We have the makings of a party. Now all we have to do is win.

May be a tall order, though.

Dusty Baker said...

Got a lil somethin somethin going here. One man on 2b w one out.

Dusty Baker said...

That, or we don't.

Dusty Baker said...

Ok, REALLY not. DG tries to steal third with Kemp at the plate and is thrown out.

karen said...

Damn Dee. You never get thrown out at 3rd to end an inning!!

karen said...

What a great job by Punto. I'm telling you all, he's going to be our MVP this year.

BJ Killeen said...

In front of tv. Was playing with my new Ninja blender. Yowza. Gazpacho today, margarita tomorrow.

Orel said...

Why not margaritas today and tomorrow?

Orel said...

Medlen just mowed through the heart of our order (6th inning).

Hideo Nomo said...

Are we back to noffense? Or did we never leave?

Orel said...

Cap responds with a seven-pitch inning.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm getting out the fixins' to make a shit sandwich.

Orel said...

Noffense is like a second home.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

Def agree re Punto. He's this season's Jamie Carroll.

And I mean that in a serious way.

BJ Killeen said...

@orel: still wrangling its power. 2 hp, 1500 rpm

BJ Killeen said...

Bad call ump

karen said...

That looked fair to me. Looked like Johnson fielded it in fair territory.

Orel said...

@BJ: That's more powerful than my car!

BJ Killeen said...

@Dusty. I miss Jamie.

BJ Killeen said...

I know! It's a beast!

Orel said...

Looking forward to the bullpen maintaining this 1-0 lead. Yeah.

karen said...

I miss Jamey, too. Who was it that commented a couple of seasons on how Jamey was a logical shortstop because he could see both 2nd and 3rd at the same time. Very mean, but I laughed my butt off. It's still one of the funniest things I have ever heard.

Orel said...

I haven't watched this whole game but Cap seems pretty impressive today. If he can keep this up, imagine a healthy Kershaw/Greinke/Ryu/Cap rotation.

Orel said...

@Karen: I don't remember that comment, but it's pretty hilarious.

Orel said...

A weak single up the middle and they start that stupid chant.

Orel said...

McCann't! Cap with seven solid.

BJ Killeen said...

That chop chant is so obnoxious I'd almost rather gear the beat LA rant

Orel said...

Cory Gearrin? Who?

BJ Killeen said...

Don't make fun of Jamie. :-(

Orel said...

Damn, Kings already down.

Orel said...

That was a great pick by Pena at third.

karen said...

BJ...I know you're right. It was a very mean thing to say, especially since as the season went on we all came to love and appreciate Jamey. But as mean as it was it was hysterical. I'll pray for forgiveness later.

Dusty Baker said...

We had a great laugh about Carroll's eye placement but we all respected his heart and tenacity.

Orel said...

There it is. Kenley gives up a two-run homer.

Dusty Baker said...

Anyone want mustard on their shit sandwich?

BJ Killeen said...

Okayyyyyy.

Dusty Baker said...

How do we let these drunken hillbillies beat us?!?!

Hideo Nomo said...

Oh well.

Dusty Baker said...

45

BJ Killeen said...

No. It was funny. But I love him so.

Dusty Baker said...

Good night, everybody!

Orel said...

At least the Kings tied it up.

karen said...

Back to back by our potential closer.

BJ Killeen said...

Here's an idea: let the closers pitch first so we can decide if it's worth it to even bother sending in the starters.

Orel said...

This means Ned Colletti is going to trade Yasiel Puig for Octavio Dotel.

Haven't we already had to Dotel? If I remember correctly, he'll fit right in with this 2013 bullpen.

Paul said...

Nice bullpen Ned.

Dusty Baker said...

This is a playoffs bullpen!

Said no one but Ned.

Paul said...

Free Van Slyke!

BJ Killeen said...

Looking good Dodgers. Way to end another one.
