Game 70 Thread: June 19 @ Yankees, 4p (Game 2)

Chris Capuano (1-4, 5.45) vs. Phil Hughes (3-5, 4.89).

What are the chances that we actually earn a split by sacking up and playing an errorless game, for starters (I'd even take fewer than four)? Pretty unlikely, especially having to call upon Capuano for his first start since May 30. (Information on the Yankees' starter here is still valid.)

This Dodgers team is so rusty, it was no surprise to be Kuroda'd in the opener. Let's hope we're not Hughes-ed and abused in Game 2.

Hideo Nomo said...

...to the question, "Who should the Dodgers have shot into space back in May?"

Alex said...

Yes. I'm with Saxy, this team needs more satchel.

(sacks up)

Neeebs said...

Orel said...

Main page updated with Vin Scully bobblehead goodness.

Dusty Baker said...

So...much...content today.

Alex said...

^ Seriously. I wouldn't legitimize the use of "content" but I read the shit...

LET"S GET A FUCKING WIN PLEASE!

Hideo Nomo said...

So...much...discontent today.

Dusty Baker said...

I hereby formally apologize for referring to some of the tripe we post in this space as "content." It was a crude mischaracterization of the term, and I am sorry for defaming it.

Alex said...

Mmmm tripe...

Hideo Nomo said...

RT @ericcollinspbp
Five guys with 200 homers and initials R.C. Roy Campanella, Ron Cey, Roberto Clemente, Rocky Colavito and Rico Carty.

Uh...thanks?

Dusty Baker said...

Rod Carew sure as hell couldn't hit the long ball.

Hideo Nomo said...

OMGOMGOMGVINSONTWITTER

Dusty Baker said...

I forgot that Vin was going to be on Twitter. Wish they would have advertised it more.

Jeter Jeter Jeter Jeter

Hideo Nomo said...

I can't think of a good question. :(

Dusty Baker said...

I don't want to ask him a question. I just want to "listen" to him.

I'm archiving all his Tweets, BTW.

Orel said...

This makes me sad.

Los Angeles Dodgers ‏@Dodgers 2m

Ebbets Field is gone. Old Yankee Stadium is gone & I haven't been to the new one. New York is basically a city of memories for me #VinScully

Orel said...

@Dusty: Oh yeah? I'm retweeting AND favoriting them.

MR.F said...

We're winning!

But where is the game 58 PGT?!?!?!?!?!

MR.F said...

Hanley! Puig run score!

Orel said...

I bet Vin is wearing a suit right now.

Orel said...

It seems Mr. F is a bit of a completist.

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

So you don't want me to copy/transcribe the Tweets?

MR.F said...

@Orel,
My OCD is bothering me. If you never mentioned it, I wouldn't have noticed. Now that you've mentioned it, iono.

Steve Sax said...

@Mr F: Let me tell you, that Game 58 PGT is going to rock your world. Better buckle up now just to be safe.

Hideo Nomo said...

Backdate it so Mr. F has to go looking for it.

Dusty Baker said...

RF Bleachers just shouted out a roll call for "Donnie Baseball" and he tipped his cap from Dodgers dugout, per David Vassegh.

Orel said...

@Dusty: Don't let me stop you. Anything out of Vin's mouth can't get enough exposure.

Hideo Nomo said...

They did that in Game 1 too.

Dusty Baker said...

You keep talking that trash, Mr F, we're going to do another Smonk contest and eat up 8 months of your life on earth.

Orel said...

James Gandolfini has died.

Dusty Baker said...

James Gandolfini has died.

Not to dance on the grave, but I will revel in all the people getting so upset and what a guy he was...while knowing what a genuine shitbag he was to everyone around him, except his heroin supplier.

Orel said...

Now I feel bad for his heroin supplier.

Dusty Baker said...

Hah!

Hideo Nomo said...

Why Wikipedia is always my first stop after a notable death.

Dusty Baker said...

It's about time for another Puig HR, isn't it?

Spank said...

Loved him in Dream On.

Dusty Baker said...

Puig sucks!

Hideo Nomo said...

Don't worry. He's going to come back from the dead as Gandolfini the White.

Steve Sax said...

Let's recap the start of the first inning, for posterity's sake:

Schumaker single
Puig single
Gonzalez single, RBI
Ramirez single, RBI
Ethier...FLY OUT
Hairston Jr single
Federowicz GIDP


Andre. Le sigh.

Orel said...

Guys, we're slacking. Only 12 posts today (13 assuming a PGT). (No, not that one, Mr. F.)

MR.F said...

=/

MR.F said...

People normally don't comment around this time. People usually are leaving work and such.

MR.F said...

Ethier didn't screw up!

Dusty Baker said...

contentContentCONTENT!!!

Spank said...

Tony Soprano has died.

Dusty Baker said...

Don't make me come over there, Spanky.

karina said...

so, who's Tony Soprano?

bad joke, gotta get back to Byzantine, Islamic, Romanesque and Gothic art ...in English!

MR.F said...

Everybody's left work.

Steve Sax said...

Wait a second, Ethier doubled in a run in the third?

Guess he reads the blog.

Steve Sax said...

Cruz, 0-for-2 so far

Steve Sax said...

fun fact of the day: Luis Cruz has had one multi-hit game this year, back on April 10. His average shot up to .115 as a result.

MR.F said...

And apparently a good defensive play by Ethier.

Dusty Baker said...

HanRam is sick!!! 6 hits in a flippin row.

MR.F said...

Hanley-Puig!

Spank said...

Hey James Gandolfini died.

Steve Sax said...

5-0! Hairston sac fly, scoring Hanley from third.

Glad that Ichiro lost that ball for a second, so that Hanley didn't have to test the hammy on the run home.

Fifth inning, two out. Wait, it's Fedex...three out.

Steve Sax said...

5-0 LA, mid-5

Dusty Baker said...

Bottom of the fifth (inning, not my bottle of JD). Have to head out to a whisky bar that likely won't have the game on.Thank you baby GameDay!

Steve Sax said...

nice barehand catch by capuano on first base covering

Steve Sax said...

PUIG HOME RUN

Steve Sax said...

6-0 LA

Steve Sax said...

Puig, first pitch swinging. Wow.

A-Gon singles to center.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Suck it, Stankees!

Steve Sax said...

They're dissecting Puig's swing, and how effortless it is. Wow.

Cliff Beefpile said...

There's a ton of Dodger fans there, it's like the roles have reversed.

Hideo Nomo said...

Not to belabor the "Eric Collins sucks" point, but he said, "It's got a chance!" when Puig's HR ball was already three rows deep.

BJ Killeen said...

Back in the hotel room. Why do I always miss the good stuff??

Cliff Beefpile said...

Puig: 27 hits in his first 15 career games. loveLoveLOVE

BJ Killeen said...

League you bozo.

Alex said...

.500 lifetime at Yankee Stadium.

Fred's Brim said...

Game 1 was the most frustrating Dodger game I have seen in person. Game 2 may have been the best. I can't remember a game where they pitched, fielded and hit so well and all in the same game. The first game can eat a dick

Hideo Nomo said...

Errorless game? Check.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up!

Scooby dooby dooooooo
