Game 90 Thread: July 10 @ D'backs, 6:30p




Hyun-Jin Ryu (7-3, 2.82 ERA) vs. Tyler Skaggs (2-1, 3.65 ERA)

I'm sure Tyler Skaggs is a nice man, but his name is just too, well, Skaggy not to mock in this space. Especially as giddy as we are, on the precipice of getting back to .500 for the first time since the end of April. Having already locked down another series win, the Dodgers behind Ryu will try for the series sweep and a chance to move within 1.5 games of the NL West lead. This would be great momentum coming into the final home stand against the Rockies before the All-Star Game break.

One thing I'll be looking for is to see Crawford get back to his pre-DL form, given that the Kemp news seems to be getting worse (irritated AC joint). For the record, Kemp has thus far expressed no irritation toward SoSG AC.

In other news, Ted Lilly has asked Donnie to consider using him out of the pen, and not as a starter. Waaaaaay ahead of you on that one, Theodore.

Happy thought for the day: the Gnats have a worse record than the Cubs!

Above all else:  VOTE PUIG!

UPDATE: Looks like we'll have to wait longer to see about Crawford. He is not in the lineup tonight. Ethier, Puig, and Van Slyke will round out the outfield.

MR.F said...

Crawford is both happy and proven wrong?

Dusty Baker said...

Crawford's presumed discontent noted in the GT.

Alex Cora said...

Sosg AC is irritated by Kemp though.

Dusty Baker said...

What was reason given for Crawdaddy's absence?

Neeebs said...

I heart SVS

BJ Killeen said...

Tigers up 8-3. Go blue

Fred's Brim said...

Gotta keep pitching

Orel said...

Damn you, Cody Ross.

MR.F said...

Yay Dodgers baseball.

Orel said...

Ugh. D'backs homer.

Steve Sax said...

Damn, down 1-0 in the first already

Orel said...

Another rocky start by Ryu.

Orel said...

Minimal damage.

MR.F said...

Come on Shredder!

MR.F said...

Come on, Ryu!

MR.F said...

Damn.

EricoPerico said...

Dang, just realized Steve Garvey was at Barney's Beanery in Pasadena last night.
He's at the WeHo location tonight.

MR.F said...

Dustin Nosler ‏@FeelinKindaBlue 1m
Did you guys see that asshole Puig run over to the right field stands and give the ball to a woman holding a baby? What a dick. #Dodgers

MR.F said...

EricoPerico,
Is that still for the Puig campaign?

Orel said...

Mellis gets robbed for a second time. Who goes a guy have to fuck to get a hit around here?

EricoPerico said...

Yeah, Mr. F.
Check it out:

Orel said...

Leadoff triple for the D'backs. Those never score.

Orel said...

Guess it's the Dodgers' turn to look lifeless.

karen said...

I got here just in time to see Cody Ross strikeout. =)

Orel said...

Get one back, Hanley!

Dusty Baker said...

Still havent heard why Crawdaddy isnt in lineup. Scheduled day off hopefully?

Orel said...

Hanley walk, A.J. single, no outs.

MR.F said...

2 on, 0 outs. Ethier up.

Orel said...

Twitter's pretty mum on the subject, Dusty.

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO

MR.F said...

Ethier single. Rancho Ardiendo. "Dodgers PR" on twitter refers to SVS as Stache Van Smash.

Orel said...

SVSRBI!

MR.F said...

Well, there's 1.

Steve Sax said...

SvS gets us on the board!

Orel said...

Shredder's useless tonight.

Orel said...

Ryu's gonna clear them here.

Orel said...

Back to our old ways.

MR.F said...

Shucks. Oh well.

Orel said...

Ha! If you can't crush 'em, bunt 'em, says Mellis.

Orel said...

Low and away. Low and away. Low and away.

MR.F said...

Puig single.

MR.F said...

2nd and 3rd, 1 out for Hanley.

Orel said...

Hanley two-RBI double!

Dusty Baker said...

I see you, HanRam!

MR.F said...

<3

BJ Killeen said...

Oh yea! That's what I'm talking bout

Orel said...

A month ago we don't overcome a two-run deficit.

BJ Killeen said...

Now start the beat down

Orel said...

Love watching the D'backs struggle.

MR.F said...

JABBFAJ

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO, PART DEUX

Steve Sax said...

Rancho ardiendo! And Skaggs is gone, with the Dodgers up 3-2

Paul said...

Lets break them.

Steve Sax said...

svs should not have the green light 3-0

He takes a called strike. 3-1

Orel said...

Pretty sketchy call for strike two there.

Steve Sax said...

Shitty call ump! 3-2 count

Steve Sax said...

SVS GIDP. Boooooo

Orel said...

Welp.

Orel said...

We should be up like 16-2 now.

Hideo Nomo said...

I think we're gonna need a bigger lead.

Steve Sax said...

AZ takes the lead back, 4-3.

Orel said...

Damn that Goldschmidt is good.

Steve Sax said...

That's a lot of eye black, Cody

Paul said...

This has been annoying so far.

Orel said...

Hanley with the sweet pick to get Co-D. His defense has definitely picked up.

Paul said...

Gonna need some balls to win this one.

Orel said...

Now it's our turn to look incompetent.

BJ Killeen said...

My cue to go to bed and dream we win.

Steve Sax said...

Ryu just fell into a dinner party there. AZ 5, LA 3, end 5.

Man, we needed those RISP.

Steve Sax said...

Remember when Punto could hit? One out.

Steve Sax said...

Crawford PH: ground out to first. Two out.

Paul said...

Get On for Puig.

Steve Sax said...

Mellis with a base hit to first! The graphic says Ellis' base hit gets runners on first and second, but then corrects to stick Ellis on just first.

Steve Sax said...

Here's Yasiel!

Paul said...

Tie it up Puig.

Paul said...

Damn.

Orel said...

So many wasted opportunities tonight. Going to cost us the game.

Steve Sax said...

Hard fly out to center for Puig, but right at Pollock unfort.

Steve Sax said...

@Orel: We're going to win this game. It's just going to be closer than it should be.

Steve Sax said...

Ken Rosenthal wants to stand up against bullying.

I just can't tell if he's standing up.

Steve Sax said...

I so want a Puig Factor shirt.

Orel said...

Man, Puig just clanked that catch.

Steve Sax said...

Puig drops the fly ball in right for an error. But runner holds at first.

Steve Sax said...

I hope that dropped ball wasn't the Puig Factor that they've referenced.

Steve Sax said...

Nice 3-6-1 DP!

UJTD!

Steve Sax said...

I like avocados, but that's a little nuts there.

Steve Sax said...

Kia Cerritos woman: a little scary.

Dusty Baker said...

Puig's brilliant fake botched catch set up that double play. He can see the future, maaaaan.

Steve Sax said...

A-GON GONE!

Steve Sax said...

5-4 AZ, none out in the seventh. Nice bullet of a HR, Adrian!

Steve Sax said...

Okay boys and girls: what are you all drinking right now?

I'm debating which beer to open.

Steve Sax said...

Ramirez and Ellis rope fly balls to right, but Parra tracks both shots down for fly outs.

Steve Sax said...

Ethier up with two out. He goes yard here.

Paul said...

Lot of fly balls. Think Dre is due for an Arizona bomb.

BJ Killeen said...

I lied. Still up. WTG agon

Steve Sax said...

Mets: first series sweep in SF since 1994

Steve Sax said...

@BJ!

I'm stuck on Level 356

Steve Sax said...

DIdja go to the game tonight? See Fielder go yard?

Steve Sax said...

That was not going yard, Ethier. Chased a bad ball there

Paul said...

That wasn't what I envisioned.

Steve Sax said...

Boy, that handshake gag in Grown Ups 2 looks high-larious.

Steve Sax said...

Beli is in

Where's the vengeance, Beli?

Paul said...

@Sax

Was thinking of opening a Paulaner Pills but the fridge is way over there.

Paul said...

Beer maiden where art thou?

Steve Sax said...

Rox up 3-0 on the Padres, Top 6

Steve Sax said...

@Paul: I'll go get you one, but I'm grabbing one too

Steve Sax said...

Nice grab by Ellis there to get Pollock out at first

Paul said...

Nice Ellis.

Steve Sax said...

Ethier tracks that down in the deepest part of the park. Nice job, Andre.

Steve Sax said...

Hey Beli: Hit the next guy.

Steve Sax said...

Line out to third for out #3

Paul said...

Beli didn't fool anyone but it worked.

Paul said...

Come on Dodgers score on this Putz.

Steve Sax said...

Uribe PH for Beli. HR right here.

Steve Sax said...

Or, a first-pitch foul out behind the plate.

Not good, 2011 Uribe.

Steve Sax said...

Or maybe that was 2012 Uribe.

Dusty Baker said...

This Puto project should end NOW.

So should the Allan Parsons Project, if that's still going on.

Paul said...

Crawford is due.

Paul said...

Dodgers set up a dramatic 9th inning win.

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers go 1-2-3 in the eighth.

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon Jose, we need a clean inning to give us a chance

Steve Sax said...

I love how that 100-mph pitch triggers a flame graphic in the score/game info area.

Steve Sax said...

Wait, 99 mph just got it, too

Paul said...

Think it starts at 97.

Paul said...

Jose sets himself up for the W.

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, kid!

Fred's Brim said...

Drew Pomeranz is going to shut us out tomorrow

Fred's Brim said...

the 9+ era tells me that

Paul said...

Drive the ball Puig.

Paul said...

Can't see him walking here.

Paul said...

Yup.

Fred's Brim said...

good pitch by Bell

Paul said...

Make him work.

Paul said...

Nice at bat!

Orel said...

Hanley up with a man on. All we can ask for.

Paul said...

Don't think we can ask AJ to come up big twice this week.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Hanley, way to keep us going

Paul said...

Nice!!!!!!!

Orel said...

A.J. delivers!

Fred's Brim said...

AJAAAAY!

Paul said...

Basehit Dre.

Paul said...

Judging by that swing we can't take the lead.

Alex said...

Turrible AB, Dre...

Paul said...

What a shitty AB Dre. Everyone else battled.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, AJ, that was clutch

Paul said...

Great walk by AG.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Paco, take us to the 10th

Paul said...

Nice start.

Fred's Brim said...

Puig cruises through the second out

Paul said...

Got them on the ropes.

Fred's Brim said...

wow, great inning, Paco!

Paul said...

Zack on deck.

D.E.L.I.N.O said...

Have no fear D.E.L.I.N.O. is here

Paul said...

Green light him Donnie.

BJ Killeen said...

If Donnie even THINKS about putting in League, imma put out a contract on em both

Paul said...

Nice Zack!

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Zach!

Paul said...

Come on.

Fred's Brim said...

when is Carl going to get going?

Orel said...

@FB: When Tammy Skaggs is released.

MR.F said...

I like pinch-hitting Zach.

Orel said...

This AB by Mellis has more grit than a pallet of sandpaper.

D.E.L.I.N.O said...

I want another 20 ABs

D.E.L.I.N.O said...

MORE

Orel said...

12 pitches and counting

Orel said...

Just get on base. Just get on base.

D.E.L.I.N.O said...

BTw.. I'm watching Skyfall with my wife.
Even the coolest, most brilliant women just don't get Bond.

Orel said...

fuuuuuck

Paul said...

Damn.

D.E.L.I.N.O said...

Oh what could have been

Fred's Brim said...

bah, nice AB, Mark

Paul said...

Wearing Darryl's old number.

Fred's Brim said...

@D. has she seen Casino Royale? I thought the girlies liked the shirtless Daniel Craig in that one

Fred's Brim said...

I can't believe we are missing Skip

Orel said...

Had him 0-2 and walked him.

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, dingus!

Orel said...

UJTD!

Fred's Brim said...

Where was that, blue?!

Fred's Brim said...

that works

Orel said...

Should IBB Goldshit here.

Orel said...

Starts him with a 96 mph right down the middle.

Orel said...

WOW gets "Goldie"!

Fred's Brim said...

nice K!

Fred's Brim said...

can't believe I am still up
what's my cutoff? 2:00am?

Hideo Nomo said...

SHUT 'EM UP, YAS!

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, wasted AB there

Paul said...

I would say FB. Since mine is going to be 10:45.

Steve Sax said...

hey, this is quite a game here

Fred's Brim said...

was that a bat flying around the mound?

Paul said...

Rake it Hanley.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Jerry!

Hideo Nomo said...

Shit. I miss A-Gon's bat.

Fred's Brim said...

balls

Paul said...

Anything left in the Clutch meter AJ?

Orel said...

That was a meek inning.

Fred's Brim said...

meek sauce indeed

Fred's Brim said...

I am gonna be meek too, I need bed.

Bring this one home, yall

Steve Sax said...

Rodeo clown is going to win the game here in the 11th
