Game 69 Thread: June 19 @ Yankees, 10a (Game 1)

Word.

Hyun-Jin Ryu (6-2, 2.85) vs. Hiroki Kuroda (6-5, 2.78).

Yesterday's rainout gives us the opportunity to see Dodger Present vs. Dodger Past. Since he left the Dodgers, Kuroda has gone 22-16 with a 3.17 ERA and a 1.130 WHIP for the Yankees. So, thanks for cheaping out on that, Frank McCourt.

At least we've got Rookie of the Year candidate Ryu, who gets it done on the mound and with the bat. Except we're at Yankee Stadium so not so much with the bat today.

We just hit 1,400 followers on the Twitters. I want to hit 2,000 before the season's over.

(Hey! No jokes about how the season's already over!)

BJ Killeen said...

We can do it. Need more free Dodgers tickets and more Killeen photos and more awesome blogs!!

Dusty Baker said...

Need. More. Beer.

BJ Killeen said...

All this Donnie hype is making me barf.

Dusty Baker said...

Looks like a beautiful day at the Yard in NY today.

Other than all those Yankmes uglying up the scene.

Dusty Baker said...

WTF is Puig doing??

Hideo Nomo said...

Nice work, Monster.

MR.F said...

I guess this isn't the Game 58 PGT? =(

Paul said...

I see we Puig already has a hit. I see my liver on the floor. I do not see a beer within reach. This has to change.

Orel said...

Is there anyone at the game? On the radio it sounds like there are more Dodger fans than Yankee fans there.

Hideo Nomo said...

I am displeased.

Orel said...

Brought my radio to work. Still need Gameday so I know what the score is.

Orel said...

Dodgers doing an EXCELLENT job of staying out of the DP.

Dusty Baker said...

How many balls hit in the infield do I have to be forced to see in one god damn game?

Dusty Baker said...

KCAL 9 has the game. Mercifully, I'm working from home on a project so I can sorta keep up.

Hideo Nomo said...

Sigh.

MR.F said...

Lineout =/

Steve Sax said...

@BJ: You need more blogs? Wow, I'm suddenly sad.

Steve Sax said...

catch the goddamn ball, schumaker

Steve Sax said...

2-0 Yanks, B3, one out, Cano on first.

Dodgers have TWO errors already. Must have been all that hard work yesterday.

Orel said...

AGon single. Hanley doubles. AGon stops at third. No out, Ethier up. How will we manage not to score this time?

MR.F said...

XBH!

Orel said...

Jon Heyman ‏@JonHeymanCBS 50s

shocking how many dodgers fans there are at The Stadium today, & i'm not just talking about stan kasten, either

Orel said...

HA HA HA

<< Andre Ethier lines into a double play, pitcher Hiroki Kuroda to third baseman David Adams. Adrian Gonzalez out at 3rd. Two out. >>

Steve Sax said...

Holy cow. Second and third, none out, and Ethier hits it right back to Kuroda, who throws to third to force Gonzalez for the second out.

And then Uribe promptly grounds out to strand Hanley at second.

YOU ARE KILLING ME, DODGERS

MR.F said...

hahahahahahaha

Steve Sax said...

Ethier you are killing me

and not softly

(except for your weak-ass hits to Kuroda)

Orel said...

A Whole New FUCKING SHIT

Steve Sax said...

why are you guys all laughing? I'm crying.

MR.F said...

Laughing is the stage before crying. Or maybe after.

Hideo Nomo said...

THAT JOKE MAKES NO SENSE, JON HEYMAN.

MR.F said...

Bases loaded for T. Neal.

Orel said...

Ryu with RA in the 5th, approaching 100 pitches.

Orel said...

"SCOUT: Hyun-Jin Ryu has thrown 90 pitches but has plenty left in the tank, with his fastball sitting at 89 over the past 10 pitches."

Orel said...

Wow, good job, Ryu!

MR.F said...

Ryu out of it. At 96 pitches, though.

Orel said...

Don't worry, our bullpen — oh shit.

BJ Killeen said...

Ground hold. 30 minutes stuck in a stuffy plane with screaming kids. Get to watch a little at least.

@Sax: more of your good blogs!!

Orel said...

@BJK: a.k.a. Hell on Earth

BJ Killeen said...

Dear MLB:
I pay a fortune for MLB tv. Why am I forced to watch stupid ass commercials. I hate you.

Sincerely,

BJ

BJ Killeen said...

@Orel: I'm used to it. I'm a Dodgers fan. Lmmfao.

Orel said...

Hanley's doing his part. 3 for 3 today.

Orel said...

Surprised his single didn't bounce off a rock and carom directly to the first baseman.

Orel said...

I think Scout is contradicting itself.

Orel said...

First and second, no out! Time for a triple play.

karina said...

Epale, everyone!

just for the record, season will be over when the Dodgers are mathematically eliminated and it's not even the All-Star break! i find your lack of faith disturbing!


can't stay, gotta catch a bus to Westwood, see you later, crazy school week for me!

Orel said...

Schu: In play, no out. But no run?

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO

Orel said...

Epale, Karina! Thanks for dropping by!

Orel said...

anything but a DP
anything but a DP
anything but a DP

Hideo Nomo said...

A run, I guess. Whee.

Dusty Baker said...

What are these strange runs you speak of?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

We find your lack of commenting disturbing!

Orel said...

IN PLAY, RUN(S)!

Dusty Baker said...

I should say "run" not "runs".

Orel said...

This means we'll get a meaningless homer in the 9th and lose by one.

Dusty Baker said...

SEMI DAMMIT!

Dusty Baker said...

3-2 Yankmes top of 7th.

Orel said...

Okay, this means the Yankees will score one more, then we'll get a meaningless homer in the 9th and lose by one.

Hideo Nomo said...

Charley, bases loaded is three runners, not two.

Hideo Nomo said...

Unless Uribe is one of them.

Orel said...

C'mon Punto, just get Puig up there.

Orel said...

Well shit.

Orel said...

Well-shat.

Spank said...

PINCHE PUNTO!

Spank said...

Who was that goat singing GBA?

Dusty Baker said...

BELLISARIO!!!! YOU FUCKING SUCK SO FUCKING BAD! WORSE THAN URIBE!

Hideo Nomo said...

Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck this game I'm out of here.

Until the next game today.

Orel said...

If that play doesn't get Belisario released, I don't know what will.

Orel said...

FOUR ERRORS TODAY? I mean, that's it?

Spank said...

MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Orel said...

Puig double, Hanley line-drive HR makes it 6-4 Yankees. THANK YOU, BELISARIO.

Orel said...

Is it possible to make Mariano throw a lot of pitches so he's not available for Game 2?

Hideo Nomo said...

IT'S COOL GUYS JUST GOTTA SCORE AT LEAST THREE OFF MARIANO TOTALLY DOABLE.

Orel said...

Yep.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up!
