Game 134 Thread: August 30 vs. Padres, 7p

Hyun-Jin Ryu (12-5, 3.08) vs. Eric Stults (8-11, 3.72).

Eric Stults Trivia! According to Wikipedia, what incident triggered Eric Stults' departure from the Dodgers (the team that drafted him in 2002) and exile to the Hiroshima Toyo Carp?

On May 15, 2009, Stults injured his thumb while making a toss on a bunt attempt by the Florida Marlins' Hanley Ramírez. Stults would make 2 more starts before going on the disabled list. On July 1, Stults was optioned to the AAA Albuquerque Isotopes. He pitched well with the Isotopes, before getting called up to make a spot start on August 9 against the Atlanta Braves. Stults was optioned back to Albuquerque on August 13 and finished the season there.

On March 30, 2010 Stults was sold to the Hiroshima Toyo Carp of the Japanese league. He was 6–10 with a 5.07 ERA in 21 starts in Japan.

Hanley Ramirez! Who happens to be batting .333 with an .844 OPS against Stults (10 career appearances)! So maybe today's matchup will have some of that drama! And we'll see if Stilts can stay above carp?

Oh man, that is just a embarrassing GT. I got nothing. Come for the horrible pun setups, stay for the Friday Night Fireworks sponsored by Denny's.

I can only assume we've run through all the Eric Stoltz jokes.

Fred's Brim said...

TULTS is a new SABR term meaning Total Unearned Leadoff Triples per Start

I hope Eric has 8 of them tonight

Dusty Baker said...

On my recliner Vinnie, told family I was out of town, so no one is gonna call me, wait is this a public site?

Dusty Baker said...

"Beautiful sky…bright blue overhead. Some of the clouds look like feathers; they just seem to be so light and airy, as if it was a painter's brush, just suddenly scraping across the blue." - Vinny

karen said...

Our Vinny has the heart of a poet.

Dusty Baker said...

Puig with a leadoff Puig.

BJ Killeen said...

Okay, let's nip this stranding men on base shit right now.

Dusty Baker said...

If I wanted to see this much stranding, I'd watch Lost.

Dusty Baker said...

Can we go back to playing ping pong?

karen said...

Wow Ryu!!

Dusty Baker said...

Ryu fuckin smoked that like Lamar on a pipe! 1-1 Dodgers.

Dusty Baker said...

Ryu scored from 2B on a flare from Puig, sliding safely into home.

My male dog stuck his arse right on my keyboard as I tried to type. Not sure what that meant.

BJ Killeen said...

Our pitchers be like lmma hittit myself!"

Dusty Baker said...

I think that run took about two years off Ryu's life. He's still trying to catch his breath.

Dusty Baker said...

Please god don't talk about Will Venable's dad, Vinny.

karen said...

Very nice.

Dusty Baker said...

HanRam double, bottom 3rd. No outs. Let's put the screws to them now, lads.

karen said...

Puig being Puig.

Dusty Baker said...

Puig bangs out a double; he's 3-3 on the night.

Dusty Baker said...

Some dickhead fan nearly interfered. It still would have been a double I suppose but - really, folks?

karen said...

Really enjoying DKA "keeping us a breast" over here tonite.

Thanks DKA!!

Dusty Baker said...

Mmmmm....breasts.


Of chicken, I mean!

karen said...

Nice throw by Dre.

Dusty Baker said...

Ethier nails the runner at the plate! Nice on, Dre.

Dusty Baker said...

Ryu comes out after 6 1/3 and is line for the W.

Dusty Baker said...

"Two annoying Giants fans..." - that's redundant!

Dusty Baker said...

Paco coming in.

karen said...

I don't care much for Marmol. He makes me nervous.

BJ Killeen said...

Ham ram said FU to will at 3rd

BJ Killeen said...

Need. More. Runs.

BJ Killeen said...

Giants win is good

Dusty Baker said...

WTF was Puig looking at on that first pitch? It looked like he was taking all the way..for no reason.

Nonetheless, he gets a hit to go 4-4 on the night.

karen said...

Steve Sax said...

Boom! 8-1, baby!

BJ Killeen said...

Agon only hits HRs cuz he can't run. Bwahahaha

Dusty Baker said...

Batting practice for Adrian. He crushed fuck out of that poor little ball.

Dusty Baker said...

This Bass reliever is terrible. He should just go fishin'.

Steve Sax said...

Rolling, baby.

Dusty Baker said...

AJEllis yanks one. 9-1.

Steve Sax said...

BJ Killeen said...

Dusty Baker said...

Vin says it's Volquez time when we get finished batting, if we ever do.

Dusty Baker said...

Those balls just fly out of Dodger Stadium at night, don't they?

Scott said...

Playing ping pong obviously helps!

BJ Killeen said...

I'm over thing guy. Fix your hat. This ain't the hood

Dusty Baker said...

Marmol. Volquez. League.

This is hilarious.

BJ Killeen said...

So how many runs will BL give up?!

karen said...

Is an 8 run lead enough to bring League in??

sanfrandodgerfan said...

@drinks kool-aid

Your posts are major buzzkill

Dusty Baker said...

League is going to screw this up, I just know it.

BJ Killeen said...

BJ Killeen said...

BJ Killeen said...
