Game 64 Thread: June 11 vs. D'bags, 7p

"Hey girl, I would never let League pitch the 9th."

Zack Greinke (3-1, 3.89) vs. Ian Kennedy (3-4, 5.72).

Hey girl, I know you're done with the Dodgers right now. You're sick of all the lavish multi-year deals Neddy hands out like candy on Halloween. You're tired of Donnie being so much a players' manager that he refuses to acknowledge the obvious. You're fed up with the Dodgers cornering the market on injured hamstrings.

But there's a reason to watch. And his name is Puig. Take it from the LA Times:

Yasiel Puig is not only breaking records on the field, but also in the team store.

The Dodgers sold more Puig-related merchandise from Thursday to Sunday than they had ever sold of any player over a four-day period -- more than even Manny Ramirez, Fernando Valenzuela or Hideo Nomo, according to a team spokesperson.

The team sold approximately 3,000 units of Puig-related merchandise in that four-day window, including 1,600 t-shirts ($28), 400 "Viva Puig" t-shirts ($28) and 600 jerseys ($225 for the authentic version, $110 for the replica ones).

There, feel better now? I knew you would. Now let's cuddle and watch the game.

Don't know about you boys, but I sure do like this post!

BJ Killeen said...

This just in: Jansen is the closer! Hallelujah and PTL...

MR.F said...

Praise Cuban Jesus!

Orel said...

I'd love a Cuban pork sandwich right about now.

Spank said...

Hey Jimbo!

Neeebs said...

Fuck Jimbo.

Spank said...

Hey Neeebow!

BJ Killeen said...

Think Blue guys are in some serious drugs if they think League is just the fall guy for last night.

MR.F said...

I have Ian Kennedy on my fantasy team. I'm starting him because I expect every non-Puig/non-Gonzo Dodger to struggle.

MR.F said...

Greinke has looked good.

MR.F said...

SEND THIS GUY TO AA!!!!

MR.F said...

Oh no... Puig pulled up limping?!?!?

MR.F said...

‏@DodgerzGM
If we put enough players on the DL, we can blame our poor season on injuries instead of lack of chemistry.

Spank said...

wha happened to Pweeeg????!!!!

Orel said...

Running catch for Puig. He's fine.

Orel said...

What the hell is going on? Mass confusion on the field.

BJ Killeen said...

Just stand there Adrian. No need to run to 2nd.

Orel said...

If the Heat lose, does Riley fire Spoelstra?

Orel said...

This reminds me of those Peanuts comic strips where everybody gathered on the mound to discuss the meaning of life.

BJ Killeen said...

Is that the same ass who missed the call on first??

QuadSevens said...

That's what I wanna know too BJ.

Orel said...

Strike 4!

QuadSevens said...

Strike 4!

Orel said...

Same ump. Rookie.

BJ Killeen said...

Wtf?

QuadSevens said...

Cuban Jesus is so much better than everyone it takes 4 strikes to strike him out.

QuadSevens said...

That didn't hit him!! This ump is garbage!

Orel said...

Either there are audio dropouts on this broadcast or someone is doing some serious cussing.

cc: Dusty

BJ Killeen said...

Sigh

Orel said...

Shit. Kegel HR makes it 2-0 AZ.

Dusty Baker said...

Shit sandwich salesman passing through!

Orel said...

Like Mr. F, I have Kennedy on my fantasy team. Thanks, Dodgers!

QuadSevens said...

There would be a lot of audio drops here

QuadSevens said...

Kasten needs a glove.

Orel said...

Gerrit Cole shut down the Giants. Scutaro got hurt, joining Sandoval and Pagan.

QuadSevens said...

Giants lose and get hurt? I like!

QuadSevens said...

Dodgers turn two. Down 2-0.

Dusty Baker said...

Plus, Kasten can hit lefties better than Dre.

Orel said...

What's the opposite of helping your cause? Zack just did that.

Orel said...

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO

Orel said...

They have us right where they want us.

Neeebs said...

For Nick Punto. whoop dee doo

BJ Killeen said...

Are we ever gonna catch a break?

Orel said...

Guess what happened? Just guess!

BJ Killeen said...

Wow. I'm shocked, said no Dodgers fan ever.

QuadSevens said...

Punto's bat slam looked better than his swing.

Neeebs said...

worst at bat Ive seen in a long time.

QuadSevens said...

Does Vinny have a really bad tan or is that just terrible lighting?

Orel said...

Pedro Moura ‏@PedroMoura 1m

Nancy Bea Hefley is not here tonight, so Staples Center organist Dieter Ruehle is manning the keys and playing Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" now

Orel said...

Spurs 113, Heat 77, final

QuadSevens said...

Let's go Puig!

Orel said...

Puig HBP. He's down.

QuadSevens said...

This is not what we needed. Puig beaned in the dome.

QuadSevens said...

Spank said...

shit

BJ Killeen said...

Eject that mofo pitcher.

Dusty Baker said...

Seriously, Baseball Gods? Seriously? What did we do to offend you?

Spank said...

^ What she said

Spank said...

And what BJK said tambien.

Paul said...

Someone better get hit.

Spank said...

How bad was the beaning? I've got no tube or anything here.

QuadSevens said...

Does a HBP extend my Beat the Streak? Puig is amazing for being able to stay in the game.

QuadSevens said...

Hit him in the face. Looked like Puig was turning away which probably saved his face.

MR.F said...

Yes, please describe.

Orel said...

MAKE 'EM PAY, DRE!

QuadSevens said...

Dre with the bomb!! Tie game!!

Paul said...

Up your ass #31!

MR.F said...

YAY HR ANDRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Bamsucka!

I had forgotten about Dre.

Orel said...

Pitch was up and in, Puig turned up and away. Appeared it hit his nose. Training staff checked him out, no blood, he took first.

Spank said...

About time Dre Day.

Thanks Q4

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Wow Ethier has a pretty swing, when he hits em out. If he keeps that up I'll have to take him off my fantasy bench.

Paul said...

K back to my sulking refuge.

Orel said...

So much for that rally. At least it's tied up.

Spank said...

Well we know Pweeeg is no princess.

Dusty Baker said...

The Puig legend grows. #CubanJesus

Cliff Beefpile said...

Hey guys! I woulda been here earlier but I pulled a hammy.

Paul said...

Fuck yeah Zack!

Orel said...

You're not going to live this reputation down by doing that, Zack....

Dusty Baker said...

Bullpens empty. Belli throws a punch and misses high and away.

BJ Killeen said...

Hey cliff. Grab a beer. Nothing going on.

QuadSevens said...

Montero gets hit in the back. Warnings issued. Benches clearing.

MR.F said...

REVENGE HBP?!!?!

Paul said...

Glad to see a catcher get up quickly.

Orel said...

Back to strikes.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YEAH GREINKE!

Clearly that was a payback pitch for the Puig hit. And I couldn't be more supportive and proud.

BJ Killeen said...

Don't get mad, get even. Zack just got elevated on my respect list. Now if he can knock out the ump is marry him.

BJ Killeen said...

I'd marry him. Gotta reread my posts.

Paul said...

That is how you protect your team

cc: every other Dodgers pitcher.

rbnlaw said...

HEY YOU BUNCH OF DIRTBAG MOTHERFUCKING SNAKE CHARMERS, EAT A PILE OF SWEET SWEET REVENGE. BACK TO THAT WASTELAND HOME OF MARLA SPORTSFUCK!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Hopefully Chad Billingsley is watching too.

rbnlaw said...

And a certain former Dodger manager of the Aridzona expansion team is dead to me.

rbnlaw said...

I'm ready to knofe someone in the robs.

Dusty Baker said...

RBN! Nothing like a good dust-up to draw you out of hiding.

Spank said...

I missed the payback but I'm the happiest motherfucker on the planet.

Orel said...

It's getting lively!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Nicely done, inning ending double play. Grienke has got some cajones. He's one bad ass dude.

MR.F said...

REVENGE REVENGE HBP!!!! Is he okay?

Cliff Beefpile said...

WTF?! Mattingly went after someone?!

Orel said...

Gibson, Sax...it's like old times.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YEAH!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

McGwire's 'roid-raging!

BJ Killeen said...

Break his mofo arm

rbnlaw said...

Ladies and gents, we have a new leader in the Douchebag Olympics. Your Arizona Fucksticks.

Orel said...

I bet Matt Kemp is bummed right about now.

Hideo Nomo said...

WHAT HAPPENEC? Just turned on radio.

MR.F said...

What's going on?

BJ Killeen said...

Make az forfeit

Paul said...

Holy shit get him Big Mac.

rbnlaw said...

You throw at a pitcher. You're fucking dead.

Throw at his head, all bets are off. Fuck these expansion shitbags.

Dusty Baker said...

So Puig gets plunked dangerously. Greinke gets the payback the old school way - on the back, fair and the score is settled. Then Kennedy throws at Greinke's head.

I don't consider it even yet.

rbnlaw said...

Donnie went after Montero. Said he was the worst model Mercury ever made.

#obliquecarreference

Orel said...

Mark Saxon ‏@markasaxon 1m

I clearly saw Ian Kennedy look at Arizona's bench before delivering that pitch to Greinke

Spank said...

KILL
KILL
KILL
KILL
KILL
KILL
KILL

Cliff Beefpile said...

I'd just like to say, fuck Matt Williams.

Paul said...

Fuckin bitches can't call it even. You idiots pieces of shit.

BJ Killeen said...

We can't play but we can kick the shit outta ya

Orel said...

Substitute organ player playing the Rocky theme!

QuadSevens said...

Who was it that Mattingly took down? Great fight boys.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Now WIN the fucking game!

rbnlaw said...

Yes, Dusty. These dust ups get me riled.

rbnlaw said...

Belli will be suspended.

rbnlaw said...

I fucking love Greinke.

Paul said...

Don't shake your head bitch that was clean slide.

Dusty Baker said...

I was fine w throwing at Victorino's head as payback, but incensed that Kennedy threw at Greinke's head.

MR.F said...

DodgerzGM ‏@DodgerzGM 27s

Now would be the perfect time for Donnie to bring in Brandon League.

Dusty Baker said...

And now Puig is lifted. Great.

QuadSevens said...

"Mama Said Knock You Out" playing in the stadium now. Nice!

MR.F said...

PUIG OUT OF THE GAME?!!?!?!

Cliff Beefpile said...

HIT HIM!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Puig ejected?

Orel said...

Anybody get hit in the last minute?

Dusty Baker said...

It was Alan Trammell that Donnie went after.

BJ Killeen said...

New shirt ideas for Erin:

My team can beat up your team

WWF Champs: LA Dodgers!

Our pitchers kick ass

QuadSevens said...

@Dusty

Nice! Loved seeing all the ex-players/coaches going at it.

Dusty Baker said...

D-bags coaching staff:

23 Kirk Gibson Manager
25 Don Baylor Batting Coach
15 Turner Ward Assistant Hitting Coach
50 Charles Nagy Pitching Coach
5 Steve Sax First Base Coach
9 Matt Williams Third Base Coach
3 Alan Trammell Bench Coach
53 Glenn Sherlock Bullpen Coach
82 Jeff Motuzas Bullpen Catcher

Turner Ward was the guy who got bent over the railing.

Cliff Beefpile said...

More like Turd Warner, amIright!?

Paul said...

Fuck baseball.

Cliff Beefpile said...

THROW AT GOLDSCHITS!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Why does Guerrier have a job in baseball? He shouldn't even be allowed to usher.

Orel said...

Dylan Hernandez ‏@dylanohernandez 32s

Mark McGwire and Yasiel Puig were ejected.

Paul said...

Puig was ejected for what?

Orel said...

Tim Brown ‏@TBrownYahoo 28s

Here are your ejections from Dodger Stadium: McGwire, Puig, Kennedy, Gibson and Turner Ward.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Why did Puig get run and no one else from Arizona besides Kennedy!? Others were doing just as much.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Ejected for being a rookie seems like. Fuck you, ump.

Paul said...

SOSG ejections:

Spanky, Dusty and Ghost of Pedro.

Spank said...

(((Turner Ward was the guy who got bent over the railing.))))

Kinky

Dusty Baker said...

I just ejected a glass of wine. Into my stomach.

Dusty Baker said...

Cue Jon Weisman making some lame-ass statements about how bad it is for players to fight and anti-payback and his kids were watching and crying and shit.

Paul said...

DBags are claiming Dodgers are frustrated deranged team. "Firing cheap shots"

BJ Killeen said...

Was that bobble head was supposed to be Koufax?!

BJ Killeen said...

We never posted a lineup.

QuadSevens said...

I'm with you on that one Dusty. Half bottle of wine down here.

Paul said...

Send cheap shots my way. I am sober.

BJ Killeen said...

Oh please, hit one more of our guys. Lets finish the game at Cedars ER

Spank said...

Yeah I'm sick and tired of that 'not good for baseball" shit. It's a school night anyways Weisman. Send your kids to bed,Dad of the year.

Paul said...

Fuck bunts.

QuadSevens said...

That was the worst bunt ever.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I missed the Puig beaning...did it hit him directly in the face or did it just brush his nose?

rbnlaw said...

Well, the Dodgers do look like a frustrated, deranged team at this point. Just not firing cheap shots.

I've got a bad feeling about this.

Paul said...

You always protect your teammates even if they are wrong.

QuadSevens said...

Hit Puig in the nose as he was turning away.

Paul said...

That's why I always bail Neeebs out of jail.

rbnlaw said...

And I agree with Dusty. My kids were all here watching the melee, rooting Big Mac on.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Definitely sounds like a Kings game out there.

Spank said...

*throws at Stubbs*

Paul said...

Holy shit Urine!

Orel said...

A hit with the bases loaded? By FedEx?

Cliff Beefpile said...

FUCK YEAH!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Federfuckenrovich!!!!

QuadSevens said...

FedEx delivers a double off the wall! Three runs score!

Paul said...

*dry humps Stubbs*

Cliff Beefpile said...

Hahahaha! That was the weakest attempt to block the plate I've ever seen.

Dusty Baker said...

Urine has had a good night. Ran lead on a fight, 3-RBI hit.

Steve Sax said...

Holy shit, did that just happen?!

WOW

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, Urine didn't hit that. Never mind. He's still shitty.

BJ Killeen said...

FedEx!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

In-game caption contest up!

Orel said...

Cruz hit Kennedy! With a foul ball.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

The old Uribe wouldve eaten Montero on that play at the plate! His new found patience is commendable

QuadSevens said...

Urine walked then scored from first. Still unbelievable.

Spank said...

@ Orel

Whatever works.

QuadSevens said...

Ellis hit in the leg. Runs to first.

Paul said...

Fuckers.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Get 2 more runs so we can bean somebody in the 9th.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty 9:59p: Urine is still 0-for-3 tonight

BJ Killeen said...

MELLIS charge the mound!

Steve Sax said...

Evelyn Taft!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Weren't both teams on warnings? Thus, the D-bags pitcher should have been automatically tossed for hitting MEllis, whether there was intent or not.

Spank said...

Fuck Prado. Throw at the mutt.

BJ Killeen said...

Agreed Dusty.

Cliff Beefpile said...

SIDDOWN, Ross! Bitch.

Spank said...

Throw at anybody. i don't give a fuck just hit someone

rbnlaw said...

I don't have that impending doom feeling I got yesterday in the 9th. Wonder why?

Paul said...

@Dusty

I think after the first ejection then it goes to ump discretion.

BJ Killeen said...

Just happy that we aren't looking at league.

rbnlaw said...

I mean, a closer throwing strikes? That's new.

Orel said...

Did Vin just say "smoke city"? Awesome.

Steve Sax said...

Why did it take Donnie 63 games to figure out League can't close
