Game 62 Thread: June 9 vs. Barves. 1p

Matt Magill (0-1, 6.38 ERA) vs. Mike Minor (7-2, 2.52 ERA)

This a truly ugly pitching matchup. I have the privilege of witnessing it in person. As exciting as a great day game at the Yard sounds, this one could be scary to see. Magill was called up to replace Ted Lilly, who again goes to the DL. One has to figure this is near the end of the road for Lilly. And one has to hope so; he's almost but not quite entirely ineffective.

Word is that Hanley Ramirez is having more hammy problems and will be getting an MRI on what has to be the most over-used MRI scanner in existence.

Everyone pray to Cuban Jesus and maybe, just maybe, we'll get a series win out of this.

Dre is banged up a bit after fouling a pitch off his ankle, but overall he's fine and out of the lineup because he can't hit lefties if his life depended on it.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Great, shitty lineup plus lopsided pitching matchup equals a game for the ages. What are the Vegas odds?

Spank said...

The Dodgers will score 10 runs and Magoo will pitch a shutout.Watch and learn,y'all.

Spank said...

Looks like it's that time of the month for Dre.

BJ Killeen said...

This looks like the lineup for the Clanton boys heading into Tombstone...I don't have a good feeling about this (now blending Star Wars references with a western theme)...

Orel said...

Puig: "Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker!"

karen said...

@Dusty...I totally agree with the GT. Lets all hope we've seen the last of Lilly. Also, I LOVE the GT picture.

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks Karen!

ps- At the Yard, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

Rich! Hank Azaria is reading the starting lineup as Moe, Apu, and Chief Wiggum.

Teo of my favorite things: Simpsons and baseball.

Oh and I'm having a beer so that's three of my favorite things.

BJ Killeen said...

Funny it die taking over braves and dodgers twitter accounts for the game today. Oiy

That is the scariest GT picture I've seen in a while

Tony Stewart is still racing Nascar?

BJ Killeen said...

Tony won last race!

Spank said...

Pweeg leads off with a single.

Spank said...

@ BJ

Really? Cool. Damm I haven't watched Nascar in a couple years.i've lost touch.

Spank said...

Rancho VanSlykeiendo

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Rally?!?!

BJ Killeen said...

Oh please baseball gods.

Spank said...

SVS sporting the fu manchu.

Steve Sax said...

Rancho ardiendo, B1, no out?

My gameday must be broken

Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Steve Sax said...

Of course, force out at home. Let me guess (since I can't see the game where I am): Puig injured in collision at home, right?

Spank said...

Jar Jar batting fifth. This is Donnie type baseball,yo.

Steve Sax said...

Minor is erratic! Take the damn walks, people

Spank said...

@ Saxy

Hanley pulled his other hammy watching Pweeg run to home plate.

Steve Sax said...

Why the fuck is Cruz batting fifth

Fred's Brim said...

a miracle run

Fred's Brim said...

but i will take it

BJ Killeen said...

Whew. Thought I was gonna have to start saying fuck.

Fred's Brim said...

just poke it somewhere, Fed

Fred's Brim said...

fudge

Spank said...

Magoo feeling charitable today. 3 walks already.

Steve Sax said...

One measley run. Boo

In other news, I'm stuck on level 265 on Candy Crush Saga

Spank said...

Btway todays game is the free game of the day on MLBtv.com,ya heard.

Spank said...

Nice catch FedEx!

Steve Sax said...

Mike Minor is almost batting better than our five-hole, Cruz.

BJ Killeen said...

Sno coned!

karen said...

FedEx snags the foul in the enemy dugout!!

Fred's Brim said...

Great catch, Fed!

Steve Sax said...

1-0 through 1.5

Steve Sax said...

Jimmie Johnson wins Pocono

BJ Killeen said...

@Sax
265 sucks, 266 is worse. I'm stuck on 275.

Fred's Brim said...

MEhllis vs lefties? Yes please

Steve Sax said...

Spank, thanks for the headsup on MLB.tv! Though where I am, I shouldn't be awake right now...

BJ Killeen said...

Still waiting for FOD to tweet something funny.

Fred's Brim said...

lucky, terrible bunting there

Spank said...

@ Saxy

No problem dude. Is it nap time in San Quentin?

Fred's Brim said...

SONOFABITCH

Steve Sax said...

Leadoff single, can't convert it. 1-0 through 2.

Steve Sax said...

@Spank: Turkish prison

Fred's Brim said...

we get lucky on the Skippy dribbler and no luck on the Punto liner

Fred's Brim said...

at least it was just a 4-pitch walk - he's getting more efficient on those.

Spank said...

Magill gives more free passes than Neeebs' Mom....almost.

Fred's Brim said...

you gotta be kidding me

Fred's Brim said...

and her glove is about as loose as Adrians

Fred's Brim said...

Adrian's

Fred's Brim said...

Adrian Zmed would have made that play

Spank said...

shit. fuck.

karen said...

The Puigster unloads a beauty. He does everything well. I wonder if he can pitch relief for us as well.

Spank said...

goddamn son of a bitch!

Fred's Brim said...

oh a sac fly? we should try that next time we get a guy on third and less than two outs. Somebody should phone down to the dugout to let Donnie those are legal

karen said...

Swedish for owl is fucking with us.

BJ Killeen said...

Fuck.

Fred's Brim said...

yuck

BJ Killeen said...

Thanks Adrian

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck an Owl!!! Pathetic! Hes fuckin under the Loney Line and we give him two HRs in two days?

karen said...

BJ and I breaking out the fuck word. Things must not be going well.

Steve Sax said...

Really glad we didn't score all those base runners in the first two innings. Now we get to watch Cruz bat again!

Steve Sax said...

Oh, and I use "bat" loosely

Steve Sax said...

@FB: nice Adrian Zmed reference. Wow. +1

karen said...

It's almost like it is scripted. Vinny reminds us that out 2 should have been out 3 and almost immediately the owl unloads.

BJ Killeen said...

It's sad that I want to see urine come in. Take Cruz out.

Fred's Brim said...

take the walk

karen said...

I wonder what our #5 hitter will do this time.

karen said...

Donnie must be on the bottle.

Fred's Brim said...

is it right to say Skippy has hit in 15 straight? Does his pinch-run the other night not count as a game-played?

MR.F said...

Welp.

Spank said...

Either the Funny or Die people are asleep or their faces are deep into Will Ferrel's butthole that they can't tweet.

Fred's Brim said...

maybe they took the "or Die" part literally

Fred's Brim said...

feels like we've had 2-3 of those a game the past week

karen said...

FUCK ME. Matty has had a fucking set back???

BJ Killeen said...

Vin thinks Simmons is good looking? Bleech.

karen said...

How in the world is this line-up going to make up 4 runs? Maybe we all need to pray to Cuban Jesus.

BJ Killeen said...

That last tweet about bedpans was funny

Spank said...

gotta split to the store. don't score any runs while i'm gone,Dodgers.

Spank said...

Fuck me.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Fred's Brim said...

godammit, this team is so tiring

Dusty Baker said...

Isnt Belli shittier than Magill, no matter how badly Magill is doing?

Does Belli even care?

BJ Killeen said...

The Earps are shooting with ak47s

Dusty Baker said...

"Fuck me.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"

This is a direct quote fro me on my first date with Neeebs' mom.

karen said...

@Dusty...Beli is worse then Magoo. He's worse than my 15 year old niece. He's pretty fucking bad.

7-1. Another fucking Sunday.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

Exactly. Can we put Magoo BACK in??

karen said...

At least Rafael Nadal won the French Open this morning.

karen said...

The Owl hits another homer.

@Dusty...At this point I'm thinking that Magoo is just another problem. As bad as he is, I'd rather deal with him then Ted Lilly.

Dusty Baker said...

What's Swedish for jesus jumped up fuckin shit we suck ballz?

Orel said...

"Yippie-ki-yay, Ugglafucker!"

Dusty Baker said...

cc: EK

karen said...

It's about time to honor Sandy Koufax with a bobblehead.

@Vinny...I would LOVE to have a Vin Scully bobblehead!!

BJ Killeen said...

Great. 16 more of those and we are back in it!

Dusty Baker said...

Mofo here wearing a jeff kent Dodgers authentic jersey. Say what???

karen said...

@Dusty...Jeff Kent was a major asshole. Throw your beer at that mofo.

BJ Killeen said...

Sloooooooow game

karen said...

@BJ...It is slow. It would even be slow if we were winning.

karen said...

@Dusty...I don't request the throwing of the beer lightly. I can't remember if it was the 77 or 78 World Series that the yankmees won in or yard, but after the game we were walking through the concourse and there were some yankmee fans celebrating a little to much. I was barely a teenager and over emotional about the loss. I grabbed my mom's beer and threw it in their fucking faces. When they started to step towards me, my brother stepped in front of me and said "Don't touch her". The weiner yanmee fans walked away dripping beer. I'm not saying it's right to throw beer in someone's face, but it feels oh so good.

karen said...

^our...^yankmee

Spank said...

*dry humps Nadal*

BJ Killeen said...

Good to have brothers Karen!

karen said...

@BJ...ain't it the truth!!

Spank said...

Even the Dodger Blues dude has more tweets on the game than FOD.

karen said...

I am just loving this kid.

Spank said...

Pweeeg doubles. Rally thong time!

BJ Killeen said...

Should change their name to not funny or die

Spank said...

I should have washed the rally thong.

Orel said...

DAMN Karen, now that is a story!

Orel said...

Rob Delaney was funnier than FoD.

karen said...

Donnie talking about switching Puig to other positions but so far hasn't taken my suggestion about refief pitching. I'm thinking, at this point, how could it hurt?

karen said...

@Orel...Sadly, it's one of the high points of my life!!

Spank said...

Looks like Princess Ethier is nice and rested there on the bench. All he needs is a wine spritzer and he'll have it made.

Spank said...

I'm glad that happened to you in the 70's karen. That shit will get you killed nowadays.Big brother or no big brother. No bullshit.

BJ Killeen said...

I want a magic mesh

BJ Killeen said...

MLB soon realizes giving FOD control was a big mistake. SOSG team is way funnier

Orel said...

Nothing sad about that, Karen. I applaud you!

karen said...

@Spanky...That is so the truth. Nowadays I wouldn't even make eye contact with those dudes.

Spank said...

i think i am done here. thanks y'all. if i watch anymore of this game i'll be looking worse than the person in the GT pic...not that i don't already.

Orel said...

IT'S ONLY THE 8TH?

Orel said...

Go wash that rally thong, Spank!

karen said...

Thank you, Orel. It really did feel good!

BJ Killeen said...

Vin has been reduced to begging people not to leave

karen said...

Uh oh. The drug sales guy is
pitching.

Dusty Baker said...

That is one of the bedt stories, Karen! Why were you holding that back?

Reminds me of a few yrs ago wen Yankmes were in town. At the end of the game we had but then let go, a mouthy piece of shit Yankme fan was walking up the stairs past me. He was rotund and looked like Jaba Chamberlain so i started getting mouthy with him. Neither of us backed down. It started to get real, then out of nowhere a bunch of homies surrounded me and had my back - some hardcore bald tattooed long pant wearing white t-shirt having cholos. It could only have gone one way and Joba backed off.

Orel said...

Dusty, rollin wit da homies. This GT is unexpectedly hardcore.

BJ Killeen said...

C'mon rocks. Help out some poor basement dwellers

karen said...

@Dusty...I love it when we go gan sta!! What I left out of that story was that after all the beer throwing stuff happened, we were in my mom's car in the parking lot and my bro, David, saw some more yankme fans getting ready to walk by us. David timed it perfectly and threw the car door open to nail those yankme bastards! For the fact that we had just lost the World Series, David and I were feeling pretty damn good.

BJ Killeen said...

@karen. Lol

karen said...

Well, shit.

Orel said...

FMRPGTUP (ask Dusty)

BJ Killeen said...

Uh, yeah.

Spank said...

@ Dusty

(((It started to get real, then out of nowhere a bunch of homies surrounded me and had my back - some hardcore bald tattooed long pant wearing white t-shirt having cholos)))

Come on,holmes.I told you keep my mom and my aunties presence on the down low.
