Game 94 Thread: July 14 vs. Rockies, 1p

The first 50K fans today will receive a free Yasiel Puig...t-shirt. What happened to truth in advertising?!

Ricky Nolasco (6-8, 3.70) vs. Jhoulys Chacin (8-4, 3.62).

Ricky Nolasco had a marvelous debut with the Dodgers five days ago, going 7.0 IP with 4 H and 1 ER, earning the victory in a 6-1 game at Chase Field. But this is his home debut with the Dodgers, finally playing for his hometown team--and Nolasco "expects hundreds of family and friends to be in the stands on Sunday."

But facing Jhoulys Chacin is always a juicy clash, hon. And in this last game before the much-needed All-Star Game break, expect to see a lineup missing Mark Ellis, t-shirt hawker Yasiel Puig, Carl Crawford, and of course Matt Kemp. Yeech, that's pretty concerning.

At least, unlike Nolasco, Chacin won't have his family Jhoulys supporting him in today's game.

Thank you, Rialto! Good night!

One more thing: Sax here will be at the game today. Leave a comment if you want to grab a beer at the game!

Dammit, I missed you by one night.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Tabasco! Pulling for you from the sofa.

Hideo Nomo said...

Joc singles and scores on a double in the Futures Game. Nice speed.

Dusty Baker said...

Per David V, "Don Mattingly said Kemp should be activated "close" to the day he is eligible to return from DL"

Alex said...

Per ESPN: Freddie Freeman will not play in the All-Star Game because of a injured thumb. No word on who will replace Freeman.

Bruce will probably pick Pence. Asshole.

Steve Sax said...

All that Final Voting...for nothing!

Now that Bochy has two spots, I think he's taking Pence and Lincecum

Hideo Nomo said...

He's already taking Romo for one spot. Fourth place team, four All-Stars. Seems about right.

Dusty Baker said...

Lincecum is an All Star asshole.

QuadSevens said...

The replacement picks are going to throw gas on the fire that is our hate for the Gints.

BJ Killeen said...

Vinny back. Yeah! Have fun Saxy!

BJ Killeen said...

Vinny back. Yeah! Have fun Saxy!

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

Let's get this done, Tabasco!

Fred's Brim said...

was the crowd really cheering for a guy who ran around to get a foul ball?

Fred's Brim said...

balls - Pretty Ricky in some trouble, 2 on, 1 out, Too-low Whisky up

QuadSevens said...

We've got a Gary Jeter mention again. Someone checks Vin's notes.

Fred's Brim said...

he flies out, 2 outs, Cuddyer up

Fred's Brim said...

I heard it too, 7777

QuadSevens said...

RBI single for cadaver. Rocks up 1-0.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck, dumb blooper scores a run

Fred's Brim said...

Brewers have already scored three in the first, which will just make us madder when they eventually blow it

Fred's Brim said...

Skip barely safe on the roller

QuadSevens said...

Skip legs out an infield dribbler. Shredder up.

QuadSevens said...

Shredder flies out. AGon's turn. Mariachi Loco!!!

Dusty Baker said...

I see you, HanRam, having bought your t-shirt yesterday. Pay me back!

Dusty Baker said...

That was a bat flip for the ages.

Fred's Brim said...

staying away from Hanley
Andre vs a righty

Dusty Baker said...

^ On a walk.

QuadSevens said...

Chacin seems a little wild this inning.

Fred's Brim said...

dammit, Dre

QuadSevens said...

Ethier fouls out to end the inning.

Dusty Baker said...

That was just weak sauce from Dre. Does he care?

Fred's Brim said...

BOOOO - walking the pitcher is unfuckingacceptable

Fred's Brim said...

FUCK - never walk the stupid pitcher

BJ Killeen said...

Looks like all that time playing Twister paid off for Agon.

Fred's Brim said...

holy shit, great grab by Adrian after the tough pickup and throw from Hairston

Fred's Brim said...

nice crowd today

Fred's Brim said...

SVS with a 14-hopper up the middle

QuadSevens said...

Robbed!

Fred's Brim said...

crap, Karina's boy does it to us again

Fred's Brim said...

totally acceptable, walking the pitcher

Fred's Brim said...

Skip Ks to end the inning. The magic of 55 has worn off

Fred's Brim said...

Ricky avoids Gonzales, Tulowitzky helps us with an up-jumping devil

Fred's Brim said...

Cuddyyer lines out to second for out number 3

BJ Killeen said...

Wasted ops

QuadSevens said...

Juan Pierre is hocking the Dodgers kids sunglasses. Good to see he still likes us.

Fred's Brim said...

this is headed directly towards a frustrating loss

Dusty Baker said...

Can we hit anything out of the infield? It's like we have a team of James Loneys.

Dusty Baker said...

God damn you asshole Fowler.

Fred's Brim said...

come ON! God DAMMIT!!!

Paul said...

Van Slyke looks very minor leaguish these days.

BJ Killeen said...

Pads and snakes behind

BJ Killeen said...

Bull. He moved and got hit

QuadSevens said...

Vinny correcting himself on his Gary Jeter comment was great.

QuadSevens said...

Nolasco hung one and cadaver crushed it to right. 4-0 Rocks.

QuadSevens said...

3-0 I mean.

Fred's Brim said...

yeesh

Fred's Brim said...

nothing going right today
this 2-out shit is not acceptable
finish this inning, Ricky

QuadSevens said...

Helton follows with a base hit. Then Rosario hits one about 40 feet for a single.

BJ Killeen said...

Sucks

Orel said...

Anthony Jackson ‏@dodgerscribe 6m

For those presently listening to Vin, Gary Jeter was a player in the NFL during the era in which Vin was doing NFL games for CBS

QuadSevens said...

Nice note on Gary Jeter.

QuadSevens said...

Hairston leads off the 5th by striking out. Puig up now.

QuadSevens said...

Puig with the pinch hit single to left.

QuadSevens said...

Skip with a single to left of the first pitch. 2 on one out. Shredder up to bat.

Steve Sax said...

Puig catalyzed excitement with the crowd.

QuadSevens said...

Punto flies out to right. Cue up the mariachis!

QuadSevens said...

Were you waving your Puig Factor shirt Sax?

QuadSevens said...

AGon with the RBI single to right to score Puig!

Fred's Brim said...

can't win letting the pitcher get on base

Steve Sax said...

I have no idea what that call was. A strike?

Steve Sax said...

What happened with that dispute?

Steve Sax said...

Arizona, Giants both losing

QuadSevens said...

Mattingly was saying the batter swung at the pitch out. So it was a strike.

QuadSevens said...

Fowler stealing stops half way. Gets tagged out by Ellis.

QuadSevens said...

Ethier and SVS with singles. Hairston up.

QuadSevens said...

Hairston goes down looking. Puig up with two out.

QuadSevens said...

Puig pops out. Still 3-1 Rocks.

QuadSevens said...

Dodgers down in the 7th groundout, K, and foul out.

Fred's Brim said...

Rockies making all of the plays today, we're lucky to be in this game

Fred's Brim said...

Finish this inning, Paco!

Paul said...

Glad Zack pitched such a great game yesterday.

Orel said...

D'backs lost. Giants down nine runs in the 8th.

Paul said...

This is an interesting strike zone.

Paul said...

Has Dre lost weight?

Orel said...

He seems to have lost muscle.

BJ Killeen said...

And the save goes to the grounds crew!

QuadSevens said...

SVS, Crawford, and Puig due up in the ninth.

QuadSevens said...

Puig flies out to end the game. Good time for the break.

Fred's Brim said...

well that was quite the dud. This'll bug me until Friday

Steve Sax said...

I can't PGT from where i am but yes, it was lame

Dusty Baker said...

This game didn't deserve a PGT.

Orel said...

I hope Mr. F doesn't see this.
