Game 11 Thread: April 11 @ D'backs, 6:30p

Hyun-Jin Ryu (1-1, 3.86) vs. Brandon McCarthy (0-1, 7.82).

The (tied for) first-place Dodgers come to Arizona to take on the (tied for) last-place Snakes, who helpfully beat the Giants in 10 innings last night. Thanks, guys!

Ryu has been both lights-out and...er...lights-on this season, having given up eight ER in two innings in the Dodgers' home opener against the Giants. Interestingly, Kevin Kennedy said on the radio the other day that the extended pre-game ceremonies at Dodger Stadium might have thrown off the timing of Ryu's warm-up routine. Does that theory hold (pool) water?

Meanwhile, Twitter fave McCarthy hasn't found his groove yet, having allowed 11 ER and four HR in his first two starts. The Dodger bats showed some life against the Tigers, so let's see if they can feast on some meatballs tonight. Mmmm...meatballs.

The lineup's first names form an anagram of J HAD YACHT.

I wish.

Dusty Baker said...

Well hello game I'd love to be laid back watching this fine evening.

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

HanRam with a 2-out single for our first hit.

Dusty Baker said...

A-Gon is gone! HR makes it 2-nil.

Douchebacks and their wannabe fans still bitching and moaning about the dip our boys took in their pool. Get over it losers. It was probably the only time your pool hadn't been pissed in.

Well, maybe not.

Dusty Baker said...

If the pool incident is all they have to cling to, I feel sorry them.

Dusty Baker said...

OH SNAP, Vin!

He said Dodger bats had done swimmingly against Arizona pitching, and that he meant to use that word.

That's some straight gangsta shit.

Vinny: hahahaha RAGS ON THEIR ASS!

BJ Killeen said...

Dusty: call Scotty; I'm not there; go watch at our house!!!!

@BJ - I would have if I knew ahead! And if I didn't have a cold. Although that Vin comment brightened my spirits.

Hideo Nomo said...

One meatball consumed.

BJ Killeen said...

Wow that blank screen looks great on my 55" LED Tv. Thx TWC.

Alex Cora said...

Advantages of not watching the game on TV and listening on the radio is that my imagination is running wild. AGon did cartwheels when rounding the bases after the homerun. Then after his base hit, his hands actually exploded when he bumped them together in celebration. Amazing!!!

The AGon Show

Alex Cora said...

Just saw Ryu dance off the mound like PSY after that strikeout.

Alex Cora said...

Watching that AGon HR trot on mlb highlights, I think he might have broken into the top ten for the slowest HR trot.

Color me frustrated. Anyone have an old transistor radio to loan me?

At least we have AC's creativity to keep us enthused.

Alex Cora said...

Glad I didn't take my meds today. Makes for a great dodger game.

Alex Cora said...

Dee just ran backwards to first.

Alex Cora said...

Review that one Donnie! From my viewpoint he was safe!!!!

Paul said...

I'm only getting the D bag feed. I was hoping that meant you locals could watch the game.

Alex Cora said...

I'm getting chicken feed thx to TWC.

Dusty Baker said...

Had to take a Twitter session to break the monotony.

Dusty Baker said...

10 in a row retired, 8 strikeouts, and seven scoreless innings for Ryu, per Dodgers feed.

Damn he's dealing.

BJ Killeen said...

Listening and not seeing. Paid for TWC and have yet to watch a game!

BJ Killeen said...

Agon we love you!!!

Dusty Baker said...

AGon done up and went off in this game. Massive.

Alex Cora said...

Instead of hitting the showers, Ryu streaks across the field and jumps in the pool.

Alex Cora said...

Gotta goto work. Let's pull this one out!

Alex Cora said...

That's what she said. Damn where are my meds.

BJ Killeen said...

When we win, tonight we make pool party!

BJ Killeen said...

Okay, Steiner's a dweeb, but that line was pretty funny about Wright at bat striking out...it's better to give than to receive!

Dusty Baker said...

Steiner has had a couple good lines tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

We make pool party!!!

BJ Killeen said...

Oh, yeah....POOL TIME!

Dusty Baker said...

PPPGT Up!

UJTD ends it!
