Game 105 Thread: July 30 vs. DEREK JETER (& the Yankees), 7p

Derek Jeter hit a home run on the first pitch of his first at-bat after sitting out 12 games due to injury.

Zack Greinke (8-3, 3.49) vs. Andy Pettitte (7-8, 4.39).

DEREK JETER (& the Yankees) are in town! DEREK JETER (& the Yankees) are in town! Although they're in fourth place in their division, DEREK JETER (& the Yankees) don't figure to roll over for the Dodgers. Newly (re)acquired Alfonso Soriano adds some punch, and there's always the estimable Mariano Rivera to contend with.

After an unsatisfying two-game split in New York last month, let's see if the red-hot Dodgers can win a series against DEREK JETER (& the Yankees). "A special ceremonial first pitch is planned," according to the Dodgers...wonder if they're going to ask DEREK JETER to do the honors?

Man, I really want to go watch Kershaw vs. Kuroda tomorrow but I have stuff to do and tickets are 'spensive and bleh.

Spank said...

Jetah!

BJ Killeen said...

Too bad A-Roid isn't here to see us kick some Yankee butt

Fred's Brim said...

Gotta keep pitching

MR.F said...

DodgerzGM ‏@DodgerzGM 41s
I acquired Carlos Marmol. I signed Brian Wilson. Still think this is a parody account?

Alex Cora said...

Who's playing SS for the Yankees?

Alex Cora said...

Giants down

Yank this.

karina said...

I'm going tomorrow, the catirrucio acted like the best catirrucio EVAH and bought me a ticket :)

Épale everyone!

MR.F said...

Epale, karina

MR.F said...

Does anyone have a link for Ned's statement on the Wilson contract?

karen said...

Epale Karina!!

Feelin' the yankme Hate in my house!!

karen said...

I HATE all of you yankee fans trying to represent in OUR yard.

karina said...

@karen sistah! not all Yankees fans are lame!

karina said...

COSA MÁS GRANDE CABALLERO!

QuadSevens said...

So close for Puig!

karen said...

Karina, my Sistah, it's so good to talk to you! I can't embrace the yankee fan. My Brooklyn blood runs to deep.

QuadSevens said...

Hanley drives in Puig! 1-0 Dodgers.

QuadSevens said...

Btw...Puig hit the first pitch off the top of the center field wall for a double, then took third on a fly ball to right.

Orel said...

Épale, Karina and everybody! Except you, Lyle Overbay!

Orel said...

Red Sox get Peavy...leaving Cliff Lee for us.

Orel said...

Holy crap Uribe just smoked that!

karina said...

Uribe power!

Paul said...

What a shot by the big oso!

Paul said...

You can't stop that hitting machine.

Orel said...

Zack outruns one of Jeter's signature running throws!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Juan Uribe: (surprisingly) Good at Baseball.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I saw you air-quotes around that "running" throw comment from here, O

Paul said...

I'm just wondering where this adequately average Uribe has been the last two years.

Neeebs said...

baseball been bery bery good to me.

Paul said...

Shhhhhhh! Jeter is up!

Neeebs said...

PJ: Uribe hired Coco Loco as his life coach this year. You didnt hear?

Paul said...

Anyone know what the Dodgers gave Rivera? A Kardashian?

Orel said...

Curious that Vin is discussing the race of Jeter's parents.

Paul said...

I think that's Coco Loco's slogan. "I'll make your life adequately average".

Orel said...

It was vintage Jeter, Stubbs!

Orel said...

Siddown, Caneau!

karina said...

missed you guys

Dusty Baker said...

45

Paul said...

We've missed you!

Orel said...

Aw, Karina! Sounds like you've been busy. Glad to hear you're going to tomorrow's game.

Paul said...

Damn I thought that had a shot.

Franklin Stubbs said...

*sniff*

It's like a family reunion with more drunks (and that's saying something!)

Dusty Baker said...

Stubbs and Karina both posting in a GT? Whoa...seems like 2010 again.

Orel said...

Hanley continues to be just...unconscious.

Paul said...

Stubbs is sniffing things. It is like old times!

Paul said...

Damn you!

karina said...

@Orel yeah, it's crazy around here...

Orel said...

Gunned down by Ichiro. Guess it was inevitable.

Dusty Baker said...

Long day today. I swear I remember us picking up Brian Wilson. Tell me I'm wrong.

karina said...

@Stubbs more drunks, the merrier, as long as they are not the "touchy" ones (ewwww)

Franklin Stubbs said...

Hope that doesn't come back to bite us.

Franklin Stubbs said...

…I meant the play at the plate, not the touchy drunks.

Though some of those can get a little snappy, too.

Paul said...

I thought I saw Magic Johnson at a Zimbabwean opposition rally. I quickly knew I needed a drink.

Orel said...

Hey, take it easy on us touchy drunks!

Paul said...

I only get touchy if I get free drinks out of it.

Dusty Baker said...

It's weird that they let Jeter pitch to himself.

karina said...

@Orel all right, but do not go near me :)

Fred's Brim said...

good luck tonight, drunky fellas and ladies. Get us a win

Dusty Baker said...

Me: Can you believe we signed Brian Wilson?

Mrs Dusty: No, I hate him.


Mrs. Dusty, bringing the hateHateHATE.

Hideo Nomo said...

How come no one makes a bigger deal about what a first-pitch-swinger Dre is?

Orel said...

Deal, Karina.

QuadSevens said...

MEllis hit a homer foul. Then flies out. Boo.

Paul said...

Nicholson is at the game wearing a Yankee hat. Tool.

karen said...

@Dusty & Mrs. Dusty...You guys are right. Brian Wilson will never be a Dodger. It feels like way back when, when Juan Marichal was a Dodger for a short time. VERY yucky.

Dusty Baker said...

God damn that graphic of Wilson just scared the shit out of me when they flashed it up there.

karina said...

I refuse to toot for Brian Wilson

Paul said...

Lets score some runs.

karina said...

am I hallucinating or Vinny just "let's take a look at Jeter"?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Yes, he did. It was awkward.

Dusty Baker said...

I almost missed that the Gnats lost to Phiwwies tonight.

Almost.

Orel said...

"We told you about Derek's dad is black, and mom is white. He says people don't know if I'm white, black or Spanish. I don't really care. I like who I am, and I can relate to all people. Derek Jeter." —Vin

Paul said...

I'm stuck watching the YES network.

Hideo Nomo said...

I'd toot in the general direction of Wilson.

BJ Killeen said...

We need a big fat inning.

Hideo Nomo said...

Mary Hart is wearing what looks like a Dodger cheerleader sweater.

Hideo Nomo said...

BJ, Uribe isn't due up.

Paul said...

She also looks to be sitting next to Kim Jong-un.

Dusty Baker said...

Didn't we already sort out the Jeter/race conversation about, like, 20 years ago?

Paul said...

Dre hit one out.

QuadSevens said...

@Nomo Ethier first pitch swing and miss again.

Paul said...

Le sigh.


So it's gonna be one of those games.

I love all this World Series history Vin is talking about.

karina said...

@karen wouldn't be wonderful to experience a Dodgers-Yankees World Series in our lifetime?

Paul said...

Ichiro is starting to annoy me with his sound fundamentals.

QuadSevens said...

Hanley nearly tripped over himself there.

Orel said...

Hanley almost tripped on that play. He must be a touchy drunk.

Cliff Beefpile said...

The Red Sox have acquired Peavy in a trade.

karen said...

@Karina...You are making me feel sooo old, sistah! I got to go to World Series games in 1977 and 1978 and was in the hospital having my daughter, Jennifer, during the 1981 Series when we finally won.

QuadSevens said...

MEllis with a single to center. Hairston pinch hitting for Greinke.

Hideo Nomo said...

Stop hacking at the first pitch, you dicks.

Cliff Beefpile said...

@Karen

My mom was three months pregnant with me during the '77 World Series. She waited for 3 hours in a light rain for World Series tickets because my dad was in San Diego on business. He told her not to do it, to stay home and take it easy, but she did it anyway. How could I not be a die-hard fan after that?

QuadSevens said...

Stranded MEllis. Going to the 8th still tied.

Dusty Baker said...

Great backstory comments, Cliff and Karen!

QuadSevens said...

Beli has fielded two grounders for the first two outs in the 8th.

Cliff Beefpile said...

You're too old, Jeter!

QuadSevens said...

Hanley with a diving stop to throw out Jeter. Puig due up first.

karina said...

@Karen that's awesome! AND NOT OLD :)

karina said...

bring it on the late inning heroics!

QuadSevens said...

Puig down on three pitches.

karen said...

@Cliff...What a great story! My mom and dad took in several Dodger games the summer mom was pregnant with me. I feel the same way you do...How could I be anything but a Dodger girl??

QuadSevens said...

AGon's walk up music is constantly stuck in my head lately. Anyone else have this problem?

Spank said...

*toots*

Spank said...

tied game. SoSG family reunion. i've made the GT just in time.





(cries)

Spank said...

Fuck Jeter in the ear.

Orel said...

I did not know the MLB Fan Cave was a elimination proposition.

Orel said...

@Q7: Yes! It's an earworm for sure.

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

I thought the same thing. I thought they just had a bunch of fans from various teams.

Dusty Baker said...

"Yankees suck! Yankees suck!"

QuadSevens said...

I was wondering why the Dodger rep was out of NY now.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Cano? Ca-yes! Siddown, Ruben!

QuadSevens said...

Soriano down as well.

Dusty Baker said...

We gotta win this thing after keeping Jeter, Cano, Soriano, etc. quiet all night.

BJ Killeen said...

@Nomo I knew if I said fat someone would make a urine joke. Thanks for not disappointing me. Lol

BJ Killeen said...

I'd be writing more, but cc level 380 is killing me

Orel said...

One-out single by Andre. Time for Juan to be an ever bigger hero.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Uribe was swinging for South Pasadena with that one.

QuadSevens said...

Ethier steals 2nd!

Dusty Baker said...

@Cliff

The breeze of his whiff on strike three can actually be felt here in Pasadena.

Spank said...

bring him in mehllis

Orel said...

Dre was dead to rights on that steal. Thank goodness for the poor throw.

QuadSevens said...

Winning run on 2nd now.

Dusty Baker said...

Let's take this one and go home!

Orel said...

MELLISANDRE!

QuadSevens said...

Party time!

karina said...

I called it!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YEAH!

Cliff Beefpile said...

*Makes party*

Paul said...

We make party!!!

BJ Killeen said...

I LOVE MELLIS!

karina said...

they are spoiling us!

Spank said...

Hideo Nomo said...

FUCK YES.

BJ Killeen said...
