Game 80 Thread: June 29 vs. Phillies, 7p

About Last Night Edition

Cliff Lee (9-2, 2.51 ERA) vs. Hyun-Jin Ryu (6-3, 2.85)

Well, that happened. The Phillies offense ripped through a succession of Dodger pitchers like Spanky through a cooler of Steel Reserve tall boys, leaving us all hung over and asking what happened last night. But because today is another day, like an embarrassing one-night stand we take the walk of shame down to Chavez Ravine, try to clear the cobwebs, and get one back.

Dodgers have two choices: come out strong like last night never happened, or go for the hair of the dog that bit them. Cliff Lee is 7-0 with a 2.00 ERA in his last 10 starts. Ryu is winless in four starts this month. Strong chance this team hits the Bloody Marys early, starts checking Facebook to make sure no embarrassing photos from the night before were posted, and tries to figure out which bar they left their Visa card.

How can one game removed from being on a six-game win streak feel so bad? On the bright side, there's always Skip Schumaker, who was the only Dodger pitcher last night not to give up a run. Read that last sentence a few times to yourself and let it soak in.

9-0 Orioles over Yankmes. What is this, last night?

Paul said...

When someone slaps you down, you do what Jesus said and get right back up and kick them in the ding ding.

Dusty Baker said...

Jose Dominguez brought up from Triple A. Peter Moylan accepts option back to Albuquerque.

Dusty Baker said...

That wasn't so much a Flaming Menudo lyric as it was our "attorney's" opening defense in People vs. Jesus Colorado after that nunnery/hazing event.

Paul said...

Glad the Dodgers had that Moylan removed.

Dusty Baker said...

Heading to the Yard, Vinny!

Orel said...

I'll be there, Dusty, thanks to Sax. Hit me up.

Paul said...

After last night's debacle I want this game to start ASAP.

Spank said...

Moylan green. It's people!

Paul said...

Bring out the Moylan. The Moylan's sleeping. Well I guess you just are gonna have to go wake him up now won't you.

Orel said...

Capuano was signing autographs near the Field Level entrance. Wearing a big smile. Pretty cool, even if it was compulsory.

Paul said...

Spanky was signing autographs near a field entrance. Wearing a big smile. Pretty cool, even if the thong was compulsory.

Fred's Brim said...

what terrifies me is that the Phils have 35 hits in the last two games. Game 2 is what would have happened in Game 1 if they didn't hit into 17 double plays. We gotta get back to pitching better

Orel said...

New pre-game co-hostess. Is she new?

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

She's hot.

Orel said...

heh heh heh

BJ Killeen said...

I'm ready. Bring it, Fillies.

Orel said...

Hillman and someone who is not Charlie Manuel bringing out the lineup cards.

Dusty Baker said...

Top class moment of silence for Justin Miller in the pre-game ceremony.

BJ Killeen said...

Don't understand. You say Ryu is winless but Dodgers have him 4-1!? Esplain pleeze.

Spank said...

*streaks*

Dusty Baker said...

I thought i had said winless in his last 4 starts. If a part got cut off my bad.

Dusty Baker said...

Just looked. I said "winless in four starts this month."

Lay off the dark room chemicals, BJ! :-)

Dusty Baker said...

Good morning, good afternoon, good night. Ryu!

Neeebs said...

Utley oh!

Spank said...

goddamn son of a bitch

Dusty Baker said...

Well, that euphoria didn't last long.

*hits crack pipe again*

Spank said...

break out dem dark room chemicals,BJ...quick!

Neeebs said...

Can we have a 1-2-3 inning anytime soon?

Spank said...

let's get some runs. come on AGon

Dusty Baker said...

All this guy does is hit.

Spank said...

On the Captains chair,Vinny!

Yes i said Vinny.


(cries)

Spank said...

fuck yes motherfuckers.

HANRAM!!!

Hollandsworth said...

Oh baby.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Holy shit!

Neeebs said...

CRUSHED! I'll take it.

Dusty Baker said...

Buh-bye ball! #HanRam

Paul said...

Boom!

Spank said...

siddown chooch

Spank said...

Mmm that wasn't a broken bat Vinny. Ryu threw the bat intact into the stands.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Giants have now lost six in a row. Life is good

Dusty Baker said...

It looked like a broken bat bc there was some other object that flew away from Ryu in the same direction of the bat. I'm assuming it was a bag of weed, and Ryu was too embarrassed to go claim it.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

We need to put a hit on Utley.

BJ Killeen said...

Geez Huntley. Walk him next time

Spank said...

FUCK YOU UTLEY!

BJ Killeen said...

Last 4 starts, not overall. Ok. I get it. Sorry. Still on DTW time

Paul said...

We are going to need a bigger boat.

Spank said...

i've got a flotilla from last years vakay in my garage. will that do?

Paul said...

It has a better chance of not sinking than this lead.

Neeebs said...

Vinny's eye sight is going. That's why he is missing calls lately.

Cc: Spanky re: bat

Neeebs said...

I'm booking that 3runs don't win this game.

Paul said...

Score some runs boys.

Steve Sax said...

Padres, Giants, and D'backs all lost

Come on, blue!

Spank said...

When The Levee Breaks!! Van Slyke is my hero.

#FuckRap #WalkUpSong

Spank said...

I guess the Dodgers don't have a medical plan. we need to do a fundraiser to get Vinny some glasses.

Neeebs said...

I took my Chevy to the levee.

Orel said...

RANCHING ARDUBRCI

Spank said...

bases are juiced for Ajellis

Neeebs said...

Great at bat for SVS. Worked an 0-2 count for a walk.

conflicting edit. Is this the assassins circle?

Spank said...

Paul said...

My walk up song would be earache my eye.

Paul said...

Come on Uribe the Hutt!

Spank said...

Alice Bowie

Spank said...

fuck we got nothing from that RA with no out

Paul said...

Brutal. We are in trouble.

Steve Sax said...

Bases loaded, no one out: can't score.

Way to go, McGwire!

BJ Killeen said...

Hey! Lets leave men on base cuz we know we can be successful at that!

Steve Sax said...

Dear AJ Ellis

You are not doing well now

Sax

Paul said...

I smell a bullpen implosion if we don't get a bigger lead.

Spank said...

every time Vinny says "Revere" I think of the Beastie Boys.

Paul said...

Nice job ReeeeeU.

Paul said...

But AJ Ellis walks a lot!!! Whatever, he has sucked.

Orel said...

Just hung with Dusty. Can confirm he is a gentleman among gentleman. Because he bought me a Stone IPA.

Paul said...

Bring in League!

Spank said...

here comes Bellisario to the non rescue.

Dusty Baker said...

They don't call Orel that for nothin'.

Spank said...

belisario you piece of shit

Paul said...

Yup. Fucker.

Spank said...

RA for rueeeze

Paul said...

Donnie using his managerial skills.


*cries*

Orel said...

DS DJ playing Living Colour!

Spank said...

*shits pants*

Paul said...

Well lets get at least a run

Orel said...

Cameraman just went Top Deck for Dance Cam. Strong move.

Spank said...

@Orel were they doing the Wang Chung?

Spank said...

3 more outs. here we go kiddies.

Dusty Baker said...

Orel called that we'd lose this. Let's see if he's right.

Spank said...

ah shit. get yr head in the game pweeeg.

Paul said...

Fire on the mountain run boys run.

Spank said...

fucking shit stupid motherfuckers

Orel said...

CHRIST

Hideo Nomo said...

What.
The.
Fuck.

Dusty Baker said...

Looks like Orel may once again be correct.

Spank said...

too little to late for that strike out.

Paul said...

This is what happens when you have bases loaded no outs and can't score one fuckin run.

Spank said...

Hanley's great.

Spank said...

Kemp is snot.

Spank said...

it was kind of low but still you gotta swing at that shit.

Hideo Nomo said...

Arguable, yes, but STFU Kemp. You just flailed at two before that.

Paul said...

Come on Dre.

Paul said...

Fuck do something AJ

BJ Killeen said...

No words.

Spank said...

safe!

Spank said...

Hanley was the champ in this one. he was in on all the runs.

Paul said...

We got tonight! Who needs tomorrow.

BJ Killeen said...

You better hug AJ, Puig. He saved you!

Neeebs said...

yee haw

Hideo Nomo said...

Walk off party!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Well that dis not suck.

Paul said...

I think Puig has saved AJ more times.

Paul said...

Hanley is flaming menudo hot.

Neeebs said...

What did Puig do?

Spank said...

puig let a ball go by him in the 9th that alowwed the runner an extra base who eventually scored the tying run.

MR.F said...

I <3 Ellis.

Paul said...

We make almost out of last place party!

Spank said...

*streaks*

Hideo Nomo said...

HYMFPGTUP!

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: I just updated the post to include the link to the photographer.

I think it's hilarious that this "walk of shame" picture is from the Penn State University "life and style" magazine.
