Game 19 Thread: April 20 vs. D'backs, 1p

Josh B. (0-0, 4.00) vs. Josh C. (0-1, 3.75).

Remember the days of Josh vs. Josh? And Josh vs. Josh? Well, today we get another episode in the Josh vs. Josh sweepstakes, pitting Mssrs. Beckett and Collmenter.

Our Josh did better than expected in his last outing, in which he held the Giants scoreless over five innings. Their Josh is transitioning from long relief to a starting role and hasn't gone more than four innings this season.

The Dodger bats, silent in Game One, made some noise yesterday. So I think it's safe to say today's outcome is entirely unpredictable — no joshin'.

Great post!

Dusty Baker said...

What's up, Josh? Haven't seen you around here in a long time.

BJ Killeen said...

Quit Joshin us...let's go Dodgers, Let's go!

Dusty Baker said...

TWC and the carriers who won't make deals have really shit in our easter basket. I'd love to be getting ready to listen to Vinny and watch the game this afternoon, as would so many around the greater LA area. Instead, we'll just get the end of the Angels game and some crappy first round NBA playoffs action.

Bah.

Dusty Baker said...

Nice little fight over in the Pie-rats v Brewers game. Russell Martin got involved.

Orel said...

I miss Rustle Martin.

Dusty Baker said...

I miss watching games on TV.

Dusty Baker said...

I'd never venture to tell Vinny what his business is, but someone someone should pass him a note that it's Paul Goldschmidt, not Paul Goldsmith.

Although if that's what you want it to be, Vinny, then I'm cool with that.

BTW and for the record: on the sofa, Vinny!

Orel said...

"Dee Gordon grounds out softly." Even Gameday is giving Dee shit.

Dusty Baker said...

Vinny loves saying "chapeau" whoever he gets a chance.

Dusty Baker said...

Apparently a great throw from Puig to throw out Montero at 2B. May be challenged. I think the call was correct, even though I can't see it.

Dusty Baker said...

And allegedly Uribe stabs Aaron Hill's liner to get the second out.

Greg said...

It was pretty close at 2nd. Montero was walking back while Gibson was still arguing.

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks, Greg.

It seems weird for Montero to walk away from an argument!

Dusty Baker said...

And we just got a Vinny "zephyr" usage. We've now heard nubbier, zephyr, chapeau. Shaping up to be an epic Vinday.

Greg said...

He argued a little with the umpire. It looks like it was token though.

Orel said...

Rumor has it there's no score after two.

Orel said...

Just saw Puig's throw. Wow!

Hideo Nomo said...

Aw man, I missed Josh S.?

Dusty Baker said...

AJ Pollock is the pride of Notre Dame? After all the other big names that have come through there? Really?

Dusty Baker said...

Just missed him, Gnomes.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm ready for some offense. From us, not them.

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, the in-laws get TWC. Is there anything keeping me from buying a Slingbox for their house and watching the Dodger games remotely, from my house? Other than dominating their TV viewing?

Hideo Nomo said...

Not enough bagging on TFed, lads.

BJ Killeen said...

���� gonna be a one run win

Greg said...

Wright hitting for himself. Hmm.

Dusty Baker said...

Sorry, Gnomes.

Heard TFed came back from dugout heavily taped. I hope they tape his fucking hand behind his back so he can't get another stupid interference call.

Dusty Baker said...

See, as soon as I bitched abut TFed, Dodgers got a run!

BJ Killeen said...

Smash AND Flash!

Greg said...

I didn't see Dee slow down at 2nd.

Dusty Baker said...

Puig hits 3-run shot!!!! 4-0 Blue.

Dusty Baker said...

Puig seemed to be chuffed that they IBB the previous batter to get to him. So he yanked one. Per Eric Stephen, serving as my eyes via Twitter, if the ball didn't go over the fence it would have gone through it.

Greg said...

It got over the fence in a hurry.

Dusty Baker said...

Greg is also my eyes today.

Stubbs is my ass today.

Orel said...

Another scoreless five from Beckett.

Greg said...

RSV 2, RowT, Seat 21.

Dusty Baker said...

I gave up my tix for today bc thought we were going to in-laws, then plans changed. Wish I would have gone after all.

Greg said...

We were here Friday. Stayed 'till the (very) bitter end.

Dusty Baker said...

Stay bitter, my friend.

Steve Sax said...

Hey guys, just checking in. 4-1 through 7.5 innings. And I can watch the game on mlb.tv! Looks nice and warm out there at the Stadium. Sigh.

Steve Sax said...

Dee pops out to short on the first pitch. Sigh.

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers go quickly in the eighth.

4-1 heading to Kenley time. Come on Kenley, make this easy.

Steve Sax said...

Kenley strikes out the side. Dodgers win 4-1!

Dusty Baker said...

Kenley made it easy.

Dusty Baker said...

^45!

Moving memorial in the pre-game ceremony tonight in Boston. Top class. #617 #BostonStrong

Dusty Baker said...

Josh won!

Dusty Baker said...

Gnats just won, though. They salvage one in their series vs Pod Rays.

Steve Sax said...

Giants eke out a win after Romo walks and WPs the leadoff man to scoring position. Dammit.

PJT (Post-Josh Thread) Up!
