Game 47 Thread: May 25 vs. Cardinals, 4p

It's Jaime Jarrin Bobblehead Day at Dodger Stadium!

Ted Lilly (0-1, 5.63) vs. John Gast (2-0, 4.76).

It's an odd 4 p.m. Saturday start time at Dodger Stadium to accommodate the Fox broadcast. Now the rest of the country can share in our misery!

Gast — not that one — was called up from the minors to sub for the injured Jake Westbrook. Since the Dodgers haven't seen him before, expect a CGSHO.

Oh, and we gotta win today for a chance at the Eye on Baseball Heavyweight Championship belt. No pressure, boys.

Not Dodger related, but I was amused:

I'm new here. What's CGSHO?

MR.F said...

Complete Game Shut Out

BJ Killeen said...

Boy the pregame shows have been uplifting, said no one ever.

BJ Killeen said...

Thx. Mr F. Not a good one

BJ Killeen said...

Again no comments here? Did everyone leave LA but the Killeens?!

Gene Sullivan said...

Holy Hell there's actually good beer on the Loge level. When did that happen?

Steve Sax said...

Holy shit, Adrian Gonzalez is on FIRE

MR.F said...

A-Gon!

Steve Sax said...

Just walked into a restaurant that told me "they have a jacket policy". Whoops.

High-falutin' Sax here!

MR.F said...

I hope the Dodgers win. I could use some cheering up.

Gene Sullivan said...

Kemp's walk was actually kind of nice to see. Seems like maybe he wouldn't have laid off all those a couple innings ago.

Seriously, though, there's real beer on the Loge. I'm in Serious trouble.

Greetings everybody, wherever you might be. I'm chillin with the family and enjoying the weekend. Downloaded the new National album this morning and it seems to fit perfectly with the tone of the dodgers season... Dark and sulky with a hint of optimism.

BJ Killeen said...

The game feels slow. Must be due to the spray cheese I've been eating.

Dusty Baker said...

Where my dogs at?

ps- FU Belli!

Dusty Baker said...

@Gene

re real beer- Are they only serving it in small glasses for a high price? that was my experience. I opted for twice the Dos XX for same price.

BJ Killeen said...

Booing Beli. I'm ok with that.

Dusty Baker said...

Punto! Great stab to save some runs. Why is he not at third every day?

Dusty Baker said...

I heard that they were booing Kemp and Dre earlier, too.

Spank said...

hey! we are not losing and for christ sakes will someone feed Dee.

Gene Sullivan said...

Why pull Lilly? Is there some reason I'm missing? He seemed to be pitching well. Believe not so much.

@Dusty They've got Stone IPA and they give you the whole 32 oz bottle. It ain't cheap, but it's tasty.

Gene Sullivan said...

For "believe" read "Beli" and blame autocorrect.

Spank said...

if dusty doesn't quote McCarver my sorry ass would still be watching on gameday.thanks dude.

Spank said...

mehllis!

Neeebs said...

I'm new here. Can our bullpen hold this new lead?

BJ Killeen said...

C'mon Matt. Make us believers again

BJ Killeen said...

Hopes dashed.

Spank said...

Kemp could have done something great there. oh well at least we gots the lead.

Neeebs said...

There are no believers. Kemp 2014 campaign, maybe. But not 2013

Spank said...

I'm a belieber.

Spank said...

A-Gon! That's what i call defense.

Neeebs said...

Holy frijole Gonzo

Neeebs said...

Double switch with Kemp. Matty not happy.

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp double-switched out? Wow.

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT!

MR.F said...

What happened with Matty?

BJ Killeen said...

Mad Matt

Spank said...

That's a wrap for Mattingly.

MR.F said...

I mean, why'd he get double switched out?

Spank said...

^ Basketball reasons.

Gene Sullivan said...

Who else are they going to switch? A-Gon? Ellis? Pulling Kemp gives us at least 2 innings before that slot is up again. He wasn't happy but it isn't like he's hitting a ton anyway.

rbnlaw said...

Matty needs to grow the fuck up. Love the guy, but waaaaaaaaaay immature right now.


But then, I've been drinking.

cc: Dusty, Spank

Hideo Nomo said...

FUCK YEAH, KENLEY.

Spank said...

Can we double switch Urine with caca?

Spank said...

Of course Urine comes through after i say that.

Dusty Baker said...

Gene is exactly right. It was a situational issue, and a good managerial move. Matt is back in the dugout so it appears that he has cooled off or been told that the move was pitching slot strategy, not a statement on his futility.

Dusty Baker said...

League trying to wrap up win number 20 for the Dodgers. Wow. Just embarrassingly wow.

Spank said...

Sophie's Choice:

is a 1982 existentialist[3] American drama film that tells the story of a Polish immigrant, Sophie, and her tempestuous lover who share a boarding house with a young writer in Brooklyn. The film stars Meryl Streep, Kevin Kline, and Peter MacNicol. Alan J. Pakula directed the movie and wrote the script from a novel by William Styron, also called Sophie's Choice.
