Game 68 Thread: June 16 @ Pirates, 10:30a

Breakfast baseball!

Zack Greinke (3-1, 3.68) vs Gerrit Cole (1-0, 2.84).

Looks like a pitching duel today, with Greinke looking to regain his form while going against UCLA product Cole, who limited the Giants to two earned runs over 6 1/3 innings in his major-league debut.

If the Dodgers, who are (checks standings), yep, still in last place, can overcome Cole and the 40-28 Bucs, they will win their second series in the month of June. Meanwhile, the rest of the NL West is at .500 or above and within three games of first place. Viva cellar dwellers!

Per Dylan Hernandez:

"Even if/when Kemp and Crawford return, Puig will probably remain in major leagues, according to Mattingly."

Fred's Brim said...

Yessir - good at-bats, take some walks, get guys home from third, close out batters with 2 strikes, close out innings with two outs, no walks issued, no wild pitches, no errors

Dusty Baker said...

Just noted this from TBLA (and also reported by MSTI):

"A day after designating Ramon Hernandez for assignment, Dodgers claimed C John Baker from Padres, then optioned him."

The meth is finally catching up with Ned.

Paul said...

Is John Baker your brother Dusty?

Dusty Baker said...

Naw, John is white.

@Dusty, 8:24:

Not liking the use of the word "if" there.

Dusty Baker said...

@Gnomes

Yeah I saw that and some people on tha Twitters pointed it out. Hopefully just snark/frustration and not a hint.

BJ Killeen said...

Cruz? Really? Really? Donnie's being paid to throw games.
There is no other answer.

Dusty Baker said...

I believe HanRam isn't available today.

Dusty Baker said...

Light rain in Pie Rat land. Tarp is on the field.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Do the Dodgers/bucs ever play each other on Natl Talk Like A Pirate Day?

Does that even fall during the baseball season?

Dusty Baker said...

Every day should be talk like a pirate day, on principle.

But to strict constructionists, it falls on Thursday, September 19th this year.

Dusty Baker said...

30-minute delay

BJ Killeen said...

Rain's gone. Let's play this bitch.

BJ Killeen said...

BJ Killeen said...

Not clean but successful

Dusty Baker said...

Technically the GT is incorrect; this ended up being brunch and/or lunch baseball.

Paul said...

Either one pairs well with a good lager.

Paul said...

Mario Mendoza "that Luis Cruz stinks"

Dusty Baker said...

Sam Adams in bottles for $6.99 a sixer at Whole Foods, of all places.

Dusty Baker said...

I thought that was a Haiku at first, FB.

Fred's Brim said...

Dusty Baker said...

Luis Cruz is the answer!

To the question: who blows the worst on our team.

Fred's Brim said...

what a waste of an at-bat
what a waste of 4 at-bats

Fred's Brim said...

make me hate you less, Matt

Fred's Brim said...

he looks like a hillbilly Marc Maron

Paul said...

Well ladies and Gin drinkers I am off to get ready for a red eye to NY. I'll update you on all the crying and drinking I partake in. Hope we come back in this one but doubt it.

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

@Paul are you going to the games on Tuesday or Wednesday?

Dusty Baker said...

I hate Gurrier worse than before.

Fred's Brim said...

I can't hate Guhrrier any worse than I do now

Paul said...

@FB

I will be there Tuesday. Are you going to any?

Dusty Baker said...

Great now Dylan Hernandez is breaking out his Hank Schulman fat/eating "jokes."

Make it stop, baseball gods!

Fred's Brim said...

@Paul i'll be there both nights, hoping it won't rain too much on Tuesday. Email me at this address if you want to meet up

Paul said...

Cool! Yeah looks like some thunderstorms are on the way.

I'll send you my contact info.

Fred's Brim said...

@Paul - Right on. Looks like we get Ryu too

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Belli, get yourself right

Fred's Brim said...

Dusty Baker said...

Belli stopped that with his gut.

Dusty Baker said...

Another SoSG match made!

Fred's Brim said...

I hope Paul shows me his Jesus Colorado tattoo

BJ Killeen said...

Leaving for Detroit tomorrow, then Sterling, VA on Wed. Wish I could make a game, but at least I can watch them on a good time zone...

Fred's Brim said...
