Game 84 Thread: July 4 @ Rockies, 5p


Chris Capuano (2-5, 4.72 ERA) vs. Jhoulys Chacin (7-3, 3.59 ERA)

It's Well-Intentioned-But-God-Awfully-Artistically-Executed-Cap Day, kids! Tonight the Dodgers go for a sweep of the Rockies, just the way our Founders would have wanted. The Dodgers offense -- I know! I said it: offense! -- looks to continue the fireworks from last night, when they hit four home runs to help them reach double digits on the scoreboard for the first time after flagging much of the season.

As Apu famously intoned, "Celebrate the independence of your country by blowing up a small part of it!"

Here's hoping Puig is healthy enough to play after his blow-up with the CF wall last night. If he has to miss some time, Crawdaddy is ready to burst back on the scene beginning Friday.

Final reminder: Don't forget to exercise your right to vote by WRITING IN PUIG for All-Star Game 2013! You have until 8:59PM tonight. Don't turn it into a Florida 2000 situation, people.

UPDATE: Here's how SoSG loyalist Paul is celebrating Red, White, and Blue Day:

Per Ken Gurnick:

"No Dodgers lineup posted yet, but Yasiel Puig was walking with no limp in the clubhouse and now is peddling a stationary bike."

Hideo Nomo said...

It's a regular bike, but it's too intimidated to move.

Orel said...

It was a tank when he started pedaling.

Dusty Baker said...

He's already wearing the Yellow Jersey in the Tour de France.

Orel said...

ARI 2, NYM 2, T13

Paul said...

Arizona looks like they might pull it off with another BS win.

Dusty Baker said...

AZ goes ahead on a run forced in by a walk.

Dusty Baker said...

Son of a fuckin dirty word. Come on, you Mutts, get two back.

Paul said...

Someone want to tell Donnie to stop the sanctimony and start pushing for his man Puig to be in the all star game. Tommy would never waiver on that shit.

Dusty Baker said...

Totally agree, Paul. Life is short and only the strong survive plus some other cliches.

Why else did I vote about 45 million times for Puig, Donnie?

Dusty Baker said...

Per Dodgers:

"Puig in the lineup, batting second in RF"

Dusty Baker said...

Puig up in dis bish!!

Dusty Baker said...

I don't like this lineup:

MEllis 4
Puig 9
Gonzalez 3
Ramirez 6
Ethier 7
Kemp 8
Federiwicz 2
Punto 5
Capuano 1

Because Capuano is in it.

Hideo Nomo said...

Capuano at Coors. Nothin' to worry about, right chaps?

Dusty Baker said...

Free Urine!

Never thought I'd say that.

Dusty Baker said...

Notta thing, Gnomes. Notta thing.

Dusty Baker said...

Mutts tie it w a solo HR!

Hideo Nomo said...

Wait, so the Snakes had bases loaded, no one out, and only got one? What are they, the May 2013 Dodgers?

Dusty Baker said...

They're the June 2 Dodgers!

Dusty Baker said...

@Gnomes

And that one was walked in.

Hideo Nomo said...

On to the 14th! Beer sales resume.

Someone buy the Mets a beer!

Dusty Baker said...

Someone buy me a beer!

Dusty Baker said...

DoucheBags score. 4-3 them now.

Hideo Nomo said...

Fuck the Mets!

Paul said...

Mets owe us a beer!

Hideo Nomo said...

I love the Mets!

Hideo Nomo said...

Damn you, Marlon Byrd!

Dusty Baker said...

Marlon Byrd, are you Ryan Howard in disguise?

Byrd sucks, unless he's playing us.

Dusty Baker said...

Matt Gurrier's Cubs debut so far:

0.2 IP, 2 H, 2 BB, 1 ER

Dusty Baker said...

Per David V., Charlie Marble has reported to Dodgers.

Hideo Nomo said...

Fuck the Mets!

Dusty Baker said...

Damn the Mets!

Dusty Baker said...

Bottom of the 78th inning. Dbags up one. Mutts have a man on first but one out.

Hideo Nomo said...

Dammit.

Dusty Baker said...

Gurrier gets the L for the Cubs vs. A's today.

Paul said...

Dammit I wanted this division wrapped up by the end of July.

Hideo Nomo said...

"Why are you going to Jonathan Papelbon for intelligent comments?"

Oh snap, Steve Lyons!

Dusty Baker said...

+1 Steve Lyons

Dusty Baker said...

California knows how to party. Just sayin'.

Dusty Baker said...

Here we go, kids! This is the day we celebrate our liberation from an unrepresentative government that abused our civil liberties!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Happy 4th, everyone! Go Blue!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Emancipation from Dodger Blues?

Hideo Nomo said...

So, Rockies get red hats because purple is partly red?

Dusty Baker said...

A Gon on. Han Ram can do something here.

Dusty Baker said...

Or perhaps not.

Dusty Baker said...

Capuano: rhymes with guano.

Dusty Baker said...

COL was up one, scored, now they're up - one. Fix that shit, FOX.

Dusty Baker said...

2...er...1 nothing after one.

Dusty Baker said...

BEASTMODE!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Huzzah!

Dusty Baker said...

HR #4 on the 4th for Matty.

Dusty Baker said...

2-1, 2 on, only one out. MEllis up.

Dusty Baker said...

Deuces aren't wild but I would still love for Erin to check in.

Dusty Baker said...

I take all those write-in votes back, Puig. Dude, surely you know by now not to swing at those low and away pitches, no?

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp with another chance with two men on this time.

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho Ardiendo w T-Fed coming up.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Happy 4th everybody! I missed the Bison fireworks, man I hope he's back.

Dusty Baker said...

Huge blown opportunity. Puto and Fed-Ex couldn't deliver and looked weak doing it.

Chase Utley, where you at?

Hell, Urine, where you at?

Dusty Baker said...

Capuano, you're the suckingest-ass sucker who ever sucked.

Dusty Baker said...

I know it's about giving AJEllis a day off, but we an't have shit-ass SP and a shit-ass catcher start at Coors Field and expect good results.

Dusty Baker said...

Are you stuck in a Taco Bell drive thru or something, Gnomes?

Cliff Beefpile said...

It's weird feeling like the team isn't out of it despite being down 6 runs. I like it.

Hideo Nomo said...

Sorry. I was severely burned in a Brandon League dumpster fire. I'm ok now.

Paul said...

Boooooooo!

Paul said...

I'm never drinking sparklers and lighting wine again.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up.
