Game 67 Thread: June 15 @ Pirates, 1p

Clayton Kershaw (5-4, 1.88) vs. TBD (?-?, WTF)

As of 10:06p on Friday June 14, that guy up above was the designated opponent to face Dodgers ace (by talent, if not just survival) Clayton Kershaw. Like an unanswered Question, this faceless starting pitcher (a swashbuckling buccaneer, no less) scares the hell out of me.

The Dodgers look to earn a win (heck, we'd even take a gift win) for only the second time in a week. We're worse than the frickin' Angels, for pete's sake. It doesn't take a Sage--or a Rorschach test--to realize that we're in trouble today, face or no face.

UPDATE (Orel): The mystery pitcher is...Brandon Cumpton! Ha ha, what a name! I mean, who calls their kid Brandon?

Happy 64th birthday, real Dusty Baker!

BJ Killeen said...

I'm here. Let's see some magic

BJ Killeen said...

Minor league pitcher takes us out.

Dusty Baker said...

Can Magic pitch middle relief?

BJ Killeen said...

WTF

Dusty Baker said...

At least we win the games that Kershaw pitch........ugh.

BJ Killeen said...

Wishing it was football season. I don't feel the pain since we have no team.

Orel said...

How bad is it?

Orel said...

Dylan Hernandez ‏@dylanohernandez 38s

Brandon Cumpton has a #NoHitter through three innings.

Orel said...

Well shee-it.

Hideo Nomo said...

PGT idea: Cumpton all over the Dodgers.

BJ Killeen said...

Gross but funny nomo

Hideo Nomo said...

It's a little on the nose.

But mostly in the eyes.

BJ Killeen said...

The next fight on the field will be between Dre and the Puigster

Orel said...

@Gnomes: That would take a lot of Cumption.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Base hits, oh boy another Dodger quasi-rally, where no runs are scored

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Isn't Cumpton the vamp from True Blood.

Orel said...

Tie game!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Schumacher rib-eye!

BJ Killeen said...

Making up for the bad throw

Paul said...

Some run support for Kershaw? Who are these guys.

BJ Killeen said...

Nice

Orel said...

Kershaw owes Schu a steak dinner.

Dusty Baker said...

We have to do something with Dre and Cumpton, no?

MR.F said...

That play was a million times more awesome because he robbed Jussell.

BJ Killeen said...

C'mon KJ. Let's finish this.

Orel said...

Kenley touching 93.

Orel said...

Siddown, Jones!

Orel said...

Damn. Tie game.

BJ Killeen said...

Well ain't that just the way our season is going.

Orel said...

Bullpen costs Kershaw another win.

MR.F said...

Still a better closer than League.... right?

Orel said...

Uribe quick like cat!

Paul said...

Torture.

Alex said...

AWKS

#AnotherWastedKershawStart

Orel said...

Then this has been an AWKSward season.

BJ Killeen said...

That girl in the Malibu commercial has huge alien eyes.

Orel said...

Melanacon pronounced Mel-AN-sin. I like to call him Melon-con.

Orel said...

Now I'm melancholy.

Orel said...

Moylan Ks Cutch!

EricoPerico said...

Well at least the Giants just lost their lead too.

Orel said...

Uribe quick like cat! Not a repeat.

EricoPerico said...

Except they walked in the tying run in the bottom of the 9th.

Orel said...

It's the Giants, which means Marco Scutaro will come off the DL and get a walkoff inside-the-park HR or some shit like that.

EricoPerico said...

Giants lose. Haha

Orel said...

Really? I'll take it.

Orel said...

Things I never thought I'd see: AGon as a Dodger holding Martin as a Pirate at first base.

Orel said...

Puig just bought us another AB.

EricoPerico said...

Things I don't miss:
Female Dodger fans screaming Martin's name.

Orel said...

Ha! First-pitch swinging saves the Dodgers!

Orel said...

For now.

Orel said...

@EP: Now they scream Andre's name.

EricoPerico said...

... and get turned down for photos with him.

BJ Killeen said...

We have to end this before we reach the end of the reliever line with he who shall not be named

Orel said...

Dre double!

Orel said...

Mellis bunts Dre to third. We're playing for one run?

Orel said...

Ureeeeeeeeebe!

BJ Killeen said...

Your in!!

Paul said...

The legend of Uribe grows.

BJ Killeen said...

No no no no no!

BJ Killeen said...

BLeak! Noooooooo

Orel said...

My god. League will be trying to get the save.

Paul said...

Need another 5 runs.

MR.F said...

OH NOOOOOOOOOOO

Paul said...

There we go! Keep scoring.

Orel said...

Punto: "Shit, League's warming up? Better knock Uribe in."

BJ Killeen said...

We need six more runs to be safe with league coming in

EricoPerico said...

Let's see if he can blow the already blown save.

Orel said...

I think BJK must be on a plane to Pittsburgh to murder Lyons for his latest pony comment.

Paul said...

If League gets a 1-2-3 inning the first round at the next SOSGfest is on me.

EricoPerico said...

If League blows this his career should be over.

MR.F said...

If League gets this save, will he be closer again?

Orel said...

@Paul: Duly noted.

Paul said...

No drama.

Orel said...

Ha! Paul's off the hook already.

Paul said...

I will still buy if he gets the next 3 out.

MR.F said...

League gives up a lead-off single.

Orel said...

Uribe, quick like fatcat!

Paul said...

Well I tried.

Orel said...

League is doing exactly what he's supposed to be doing: inducing ground balls.

Paul said...

This can only end well.

Orel said...

Wow, League & A.J. putting on a show here.

Orel said...

Two down!

MR.F said...

Okay. Even if League gets the save, no way does he become closer again. Right?

Paul said...

Cover me Porkins.

Orel said...

Ha! Dodgers win despite themselves!

Orel said...

Love AGon pumping up League there.

BJ Killeen said...

@orel. Didn't see the latest.

MR.F said...

We did it!
