Game 61 Thread: June 8 vs. Barves. 7p

Stephen Fife (1-0, 4.50 ERA) vs. Kris Medlen (2-6, 3.14 ERA)

Still hung over from the wild win last night, and, quite, frankly, from the booze itself, we march on through this up and down season. Currently riding the Puigasm, we bow down to our young Cuban Jesus in hopes that he can provide the winning spark we've lacked so far this season.

These last few exciting wins make it feel like we've gone on a 12-game win streak or something. Regrettably, Dodgers sit in last place, 6 games under .500 and 7.5 games out of first. Maybe it's optimism, though, or maybe it's fueled by the Bloody Marys coursing through our veins to combat the hang over, but there is a sense that the clubhouse is beginning to finally gel. Sometimes it takes a Puig or a walk off win or a hit batsman to really get a team to come together. These guys know they can score and win, and knowing is half the battle.

And there is simply no way in a just world that we could possibly have MORE injuries, so it has to get better, right?

Keep hope alive, folks!

Dusty Baker said...

Indeed I did.

BTW:

At the Yard, Vinny!!!

Paul said...

Going to have to steal it for my profile pic Dusty. I'll give you royalties of course.

Orel said...

Kris MedellĂ­n? We got this.

Spank said...

@ Primo 6:35pm

LMFAO!!

Paul said...

Neeebs gave me some Medellin once..

Orel said...

Hawks 2, Kings 1, 3rd period

Dusty Baker said...

Neeebs' mom gave me a rash one time. A shot of Medelin cleared it up eventually.

Orel said...

Leadoff double for the Barves.

Orel said...

Heyward shows bunt. He's been listening to Donnie!

Hideo Nomo said...

Dusty, I just rapped your knuckles across Twitter's dome.

Orel said...

Justin Upton just bunted. WTF

Paul said...

Kings tied it up!

Orel said...

Kings tie it up!

Fife Ks Freeman!

Orel said...

PUIG TIME

Hideo Nomo said...

Well, that was an industrial drum of what the fuck.

BJ Killeen said...

Yeah, let's make our best hitter bunt. Sell Donnie to the sand jawas

Orel said...

The Bunting Conspiracy has infiltrated both clubhouses.

Orel said...

BJK with the Star Wars reference!

Orel said...

Old-timers game still going on, I guess.

Orel said...

Shit, Hawks on the PP.

Orel said...

Kings kill the PP. 7:55 left.

Orel said...

Hey, Fife with two scoreless!

Orel said...

SVS should never look at strike three.

Orel said...

"If the Hall came to me and said, 'We want you to go in as a Dodger,' I'd say, 'Well, then I'll go in as nothing,'" Piazza wrote in his book, "Long Shot."

"I just wouldn't feel comfortable with LA stamped on my head for all of eternity."

Orel said...

I never thought the day would come where I'd hate Mike Piazza more than I do Paul Lo Duca.

Orel said...

Shit, Hawks score.

Orel said...

Bruins are going to crush the Hawks anyway.

Orel said...

HOLY SHIT KINGS TIE IT UP!

Orel said...

That tying goal was INSANE. How do you even draw that up?

Orel said...

Orel said...

Puig Time!

Orel said...

Puig singles! I mean, that's it?

Orel said...

Puig followed by Punto. Doesn't seem right.

Orel said...

OT in Chicago. Here we go.

Orel said...

So Fife has gone four scoreless so far. Pretty impressive.

Paul said...

Kings getting shots.

Orel said...

Really?

Jon Morosi ‏@jonmorosi 51s

Braves and Tigers are the only teams with winning records in their respective divisions.

Orel said...

nervewracking

Paul said...

Fuck the Kings are giving me a rash.

BJ Killeen said...

Nobody throws like that!! He's not human! Or he's using the force!

Spank said...

Princess Ethier

Paul said...

This is starting to feel like a few years back when we just have to hope Manny (Puig) is at bat at the right time.

BJ Killeen said...

I hate San Diego!!

BJ Killeen said...

@Spank: LOL

Paul said...

Come on baby Dunn!

Orel said...

SHIT. Kings lose.

Paul said...

Fuck!!!!!

Orel said...

Now I can go back to watching the Dodgers lose.

Orel said...

Fife is still in? QualityStart™ for him!

Paul said...

I've had too much booze to go back so Dodgers win this game please.

Paul said...

Somewhere Neeebs is grieving the only way he knows how by crying and listening to DeBarge's Rhythm of the night.

Orel said...

uh huh huh uh huh huh uh huh huh

Orel said...

Puig Time!

Orel said...

Puig pulls a Punto!

BJ Killeen said...

Don't stop

Orel said...

Hanley with the RBI-single, Kershaw in to pinch run for him.

Paul said...

Kershaw?

BJ Killeen said...

Boycott coca cola.

Orel said...

Well, Puig isn't coming up in the 9th. Chalk this one up as a loss.

Paul said...

My grandfather had a Moylan removed from his neck.

Orel said...

It was promptly shipped to Australia.

Orel said...

Kimbrel. Game over.

Paul said...

Someone be the hero. As Neeebs favorite band Starship would say nothing is gonna stop us now.

Orel said...

Schu single...

MR.F said...

Wotchale, y'all. Get the bat to Puig!

MR.F said...

Hernandez pinch-hit for Cruz. Is that really an upgrade?

MR.F said...

Come on Mellis!

MR.F said...

Damn. 2nd straight game ends with Puig on-deck.

Dusty Baker said...

non-PPGT up!

Paul said...

Ellis needs to go back to Chokeland.
