Game 83 Thread: July 3 @ Rockies, 5p

Blast off!

Zack Greinke (5-2, 3.94) vs. Tyler Chatwood (4-1, 2.13)

How do you top yesterday's Kershaw-shutout, Puig-near-cycle, Giants-no-hit, all-around GREAT DAY for Dodger fans? You probably can't, but it's a safe bet Puig will find another way to surprise everyone.

The Dodgers are a rocket, streaking past everyone in the West. Strap in and hold on for the ride!

Awesome Puig shirt design by EephusBlue. Buy one here, won't you?

BREAKING NEWS ON OLD FRIENDS:


Daniels looks thrilled with his own decision.

Anthony Andro ‏@aandro 29m

Manny Ramirez will cut hair and comply with Rangers minor league rules.

Hideo Nomo said...

Post edited with all the signing news, so Orel's comment isn't out of context anymore.

QuadSevens said...

Does Manny still have a suspension to serve?

Hideo Nomo said...

"Ramierz"

Hideo Nomo said...

I think retiring for more than 50 games counts.

Orel said...

My posts are always out of context.

Hideo Nomo said...

It's a virtual who's-who of "Who's that?"

Hideo Nomo said...

And with that, Louie Screws is officially unfollowed.

MR.F said...

Cesar Izturis and Xavier Paul are both on the Reds. Interesting.

Hideo Nomo said...

And Jonathan Broxton.

BJ Killeen said...

Yankees, really? Don't you watch tv?

Orel said...

Danny Knobler ‏@DannyKnoblerCBS 18m

For those asking, Manny served his suspension last year with A's, but they never called him up from AAA after it was over.

QuadSevens said...

Ahhh! Thanks for the clarification Orel.

Dusty Baker said...

Flaming Menudos still collectively have 5,237 games yet to serve for their repeated drug offenses.

Steve Sax said...

@Gnomes 2:20p: "Ramierz." Minor-league spelling!

Hideo Nomo said...

DBacks/Mets in rain delay.

Hideo Nomo said...

Mellis 2B
Puig RF
Gonzalez 1B
Ramirez SS
Ethier LF
Kemp CF
Ajellis C
Uribe 3B
Greinke P

SI MLB ‏@si_mlb 48s

Odd scene in Boston. While time is out, Jon Lester finishes his delivery and drills SD's Chase Headley in the ankle. Headley stays in game.

Two thoughts:
-Don't break our future third baseman.
-Damn, that's a clever way to plunk someone and not have it count.

Steve Sax said...

SD @ Boston, SF @ Cincy just about to start

Hideo Nomo said...

SD up 1-0 already.

BJ Killeen said...

25 more write in votes for Puig from me!

Steve Sax said...

Crawford to join the team in SF

Orel said...

Puig stretches a single into a double.

MR.F said...

PUIG

Orel said...

Oh, and he slid feet-first.

Orel said...

Holy shit, you guys. Puig creating runs out of NOTHING.

Orel said...

Hanley singles! Ethier stretches a single into a double! WHAT IS GOING ON

Orel said...

Bill Plunkett ‏@billplunkettocr 2m

I would not want to drive in Cuba. Apparently there are no stop signs. #1MAN5TOOLS

Orel said...

Dammit. Kemp tags it, and the CF bobbles it, but holds on.

MR.F said...

MLB Memes ‏@MLBMeme 5m
Yasiel PUIG batted .436 in June, but with a .666 average in July, it looks like the June slump is over. #Dodgers

Orel said...

Nice.

Orel said...

Cargo making up for yesterday's disappointing performance. Tie game.

Orel said...

Hanley muffs the catch but AGon saves. his bacon.

Paul said...

It ain't winning if you ain't on drugs.

MR.F said...

Jared Massey ‏@Dodger_Diamond 4m
Stripling pulled after an inning in Chattanooga. If Ned trades him for Nolasco, I swear to God...

Orel said...

Rockies with men on second and third, one out.

MR.F said...

Dustin Nosler ‏@FeelinKindaBlue 43s
Stripling will pitch in relief until after the Southern Lg AS game. Not sure why, but could be to limit IP (despite what I said earlier).

Paul said...

You are killing my buzz Zack.

Orel said...

RA for Peter Mahieu.

Orel said...

Zack getting slapped around again. 3-1 Rox

MR.F said...

Damnit, Zack.

Also, Dylan Hernandez continues the general hatin'.

Dylan Hernandez ‏@dylanohernandez 54s
Won't lie. A little disappointed with the quality of Jay-Z's shot at Boras. Not exactly Canibus on LL or Quik on MC Eiht.

Orel said...

GET IT TOGETHER ZACK

Orel said...

How do you pronounce "Eiht"?

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, stupid!

Hideo Nomo said...

Well, it was fun while it lasted.

Hideo Nomo said...

Luis Cruz has a flyout (progress!) and an error in his brief Yankee career.

Orel said...

It's "only" 4-1. We can do this.

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel 8

Orel said...

Mellis leadoff single!

Orel said...

Thanks, FB. I feel one degree cooler.

Orel said...

Puig swings and misses with flair.

Orel said...

Check-swing K for Puig.

Fred's Brim said...

so now they start busting him inside again?

Fred's Brim said...

crud - i was hoping we could get a run back this inning

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon Zach, hows about a clean inning?

Orel said...

Zack is still in spring training.

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel he played A-Wax in Menace II Society

Orel said...

Fuck. Zack is super-hittable today.

Orel said...

@FB: The more you know!

Fred's Brim said...

sheezus

Orel said...

I can't believe Morrissey got thrown out of Egypt.

Orel said...

Hey, a play went our way! The ol' 4-6 DP!

Fred's Brim said...

OK let's get a run or two

Fred's Brim said...

Kofta is Murder

Fred's Brim said...

I really want Matty to get going again

Orel said...

Hanley stays hot. Will be that much more painful when he gets hurt right before Crawford returns.

Fred's Brim said...

Matty flashing the smile

Fred's Brim said...

low fastballs - take note, Zachary

Orel said...

Kemp hasn't struck out yet. This is progress.

Orel said...

You had to show Kemp hitting the wall again, KCAL?

Fred's Brim said...

Wild pitch gets Hanley to second

MR.F said...

Hanley is flaming.

Orel said...

Ajellis RBI knocks in Hanley, who still looks a little tender running.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, AJ!

Orel said...

Damn. Uribe ties it up!

Fred's Brim said...

URINE!

MR.F said...

Urine!

Orel said...

Zack doubles!

Fred's Brim said...

Greenkie with the double!

Orel said...

And all with two out!

Fred's Brim said...

I like my beer cold, my TV loud and my Hanley flaming!

Dusty Baker said...

Urine!

Fred's Brim said...

these teams are way too chummy

Dusty Baker said...

YES!!!!!!!! MEllis makes it 5-4.

MR.F said...

http://i.imgur.com/omeF86d.gif

Orel said...

Mellis RBI-triple! Or double + error!

Fred's Brim said...

MELLIS!

Orel said...

My god, Mr. F, where did that come from?

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

I know - I wanted to see Greinke throwing at that infielder while standing on 2B, not patting each other on the ass. If I wanted to see ass patting, I'd...

Better stay PC here.

Fred's Brim said...

hehe nice one, Master F

Orel said...

Puig makes the third out. He's useless!

Fred's Brim said...

BENCH PUIG!

MR.F said...

EephusBlue on twitter linked it.

MR.F said...

OMG send this guy back to AA!

Orel said...

Re: chumminess. It's all of baseball. Too many guys changing teams too often.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB, borrow Mr C's clown porn calendar?

Paul said...

That's the only AB of Puig's I have seen. Have them going inside a lot?

Paul said...

^have they been throwing inside

Orel said...

I seem to remember at least one high-and-tight pitch to Puig.

Fred's Brim said...

@Paul the Kd him inside on the first AB as well

Paul said...

Zack is gonna have a hard time getting to the 5th.

Fred's Brim said...

GODDAMMIT, THROW STRIKES!

Fred's Brim said...

@Paul, Zach is gonna have a hard time avoiding my fist on his clavicle if he doesn't start getting outs

Fred's Brim said...

what is wrong with me?

Paul said...

Not drinking enough?

Fred's Brim said...

that's it

Fred's Brim said...

it was amazing what terrible swings Gonzales had yesterday. I had never seen anything like that before

Fred's Brim said...

phew - big K there

Dusty Baker said...

Just sinking in...Brute 66 named NL Rookie and Player of the month for June.

No player has ever done both until now.

Fred's Brim said...

excellent

Fred's Brim said...

@Dusty - it really is amazing. I really hope it lasts for a while

Orel said...

AGon. Oh my.

Dusty Baker said...

Buh-bye ball!!! #AGon

Dusty Baker said...

My god I feel sorry for that little ball that AGon that just hit.

Cliff Beefpile said...

A-Gone! That was a blast!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Come on, Matty. You're the only thing missing from this joy ride.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy Matty, keep the inning alive for AJ and Uribe

Orel said...

Can you imagine if everyone stays healthy and Matt & Zack find their grooves?

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon Zacharia, another clean inning please

Cliff Beefpile said...

There are still a few question marks in the bullpen...and defense could still improve...but it's gonna be fun to watch regardless.

Fred's Brim said...

GRRR

Hideo Nomo said...

DEM WALKS

Fred's Brim said...

Todd Helton's head must be shrinking

Orel said...

hot pink top

Dusty Baker said...

While we're on - what do they call them, statistics - I heard this morning on MLB Network a discussion re Kid K. I couldn't write and drive so didn't catch the whole thing.

The stat went something like: in the live ball era, there are only three pitchers (minumum 1,000 innings) who have/had a 2.x (sub-3.00) ERA: Kershaw, M. Rivera, and Hoyt Wilhelm.

This helps in breaking down that stat:

http://www.baseball-reference.com/leaders/earned_run_avg_career.shtml

Dusty Baker said...

Zack Greinke's head is shrunk.

Fred's Brim said...

unacceptable

Hideo Nomo said...

LOL SEVEN WALKS

Cliff Beefpile said...

Aw shit.

Paul said...

Fuckin walls.

Fred's Brim said...

holy shit

Fred's Brim said...

GODDAMN COORS

Paul said...

Foam walls in every stadium.

Dusty Baker said...

Jesus christ.

Cliff Beefpile said...

And all of Los Angeles exhaled.

Dusty Baker said...

Is that wall ok?

Orel said...

That was scary.

Orel said...

We need to Nerf that shit up.

Paul said...

*faints*

Paul said...

Fuck!

Paul said...

Hanley always makes it scary out there.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Great play by Greinke.

Fred's Brim said...

FOCK!

Hollandsworth said...

I don't care that I'm at work. I let out an audible "SHIT!" after Puig went down.

Cliff Beefpile said...

If Jude Law and Bill Murray had a kid he'd look like Scott Van Slyke.

Orel said...

If Andy Van Slyke had a kid — oh wait.

Orel said...

Mellis bunt single!

Orel said...

Time to hit the wall in revenge, Yasiel.

Fred's Brim said...

stiff swing

Fred's Brim said...

he is way off the plate this AB

Fred's Brim said...

he is almost on the back line of the batter's box

Fred's Brim said...

good job, YP!

Orel said...

Puig out.

Fred's Brim said...

Violent JP with the K

Orel said...

Of the game, that is. Dre moves to right, Skip in left.

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, please be OK
Please don't be a Bo Jackson injury

Orel said...

BOS 2, SD 1, F
ARI 0, NYM 2, T5
SF 2, CIN 2, T8

Orel said...

Howell Ks Cargo! Impressive!

Fred's Brim said...

woo - nasty!

Neeebs said...

I Got It!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Mets up 2-0. Boston wins 2-1.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Come on, Matty...just keep it off the ground.

Cliff Beefpile said...

The Rockies have caught a case of the errors. So much more fun watching the other team struggle with it.

Dusty Baker said...

Lil Geico here, AJellis.

Fred's Brim said...

good job, Matty

Dusty Baker said...

A leadoff walk - what a shock!

Dusty Baker said...

MLB.com headline:

"Nolasco ignores rumors, hits 1,000 K's in win"

Wow, what a game he had!

Fred's Brim said...

uh oh

Neeebs said...

DP please

Dusty Baker said...

No dis to Louis Screws, but he's 0-3 in his Yankme debut and batting a cool .124 now.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, kid!

Fred's Brim said...

try that low outside fastball again

Cliff Beefpile said...

Shit. That was the double-play ball they needed, too.

Fred's Brim said...

shite, a double play would have been nice there

Paul said...

If Puig is hurt I'm going to throw something.

Fred's Brim said...

stay tough, Jose

Fred's Brim said...

balls

Orel said...

Rox pull to within one. Good learning experience for Dominguez. Let's hope it doesn't cost us the game.

Fred's Brim said...

it's OK, kid. Matt Guerrier would have given up a homer and left the bases loaded

Fred's Brim said...

Paco against a righty, huh?

Fred's Brim said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Orel said...

Nice glovework, Paco.

Fred's Brim said...

nice play, Pac!

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Paco, finish this off

Fred's Brim said...

ugh this is only the 7th?

Fred's Brim said...

holy moly - attaboy Paco!

Fred's Brim said...

that was narsty!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Paco!

Orel said...

Siddown, aquavit!

Fred's Brim said...

SKIP!

Skip?

Orel said...

All of a sudden we're aggressive on the basepaths. Schu is the latest to turn a single into a double

Cliff Beefpile said...

That was close. Phew. Just goes to show how fast Puig is.

Orel said...

SF 2, CIN 2, B9

Fred's Brim said...

Was Punto humping his bat?

Fred's Brim said...

crap

Fred's Brim said...

that was unlucky

Orel said...

Damn you, Cargo.

Orel said...

I agree with Lyons. Schu would have been dead to rights at the plate.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YOU, Cargo.

cc: Karina

Dusty Baker said...

Definitely agree w Lyons.

Don't quote me on that.
