Game 23 Thread: April 24 vs. Phils, 7p

*No technology used in the filming of this statuette

Dan Haren (3-0, 2.16)vs. Kyle Kendrick (0-2, 3.60)

Thanks to last night's win, the Dodgers are now 1-2,071 lifetime against the Phillies. They'll look to double their tally tonight in the last of this four-game shitstretch.

Tonight's game features the first bobble head giveaway of the 2014 season, brought to us by our friends at Time Warner Cable. Regrettably, the player featured, Clayton Kershaw, will be pitching a rehab start at Class A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga Quakes versus the dread Lancaster JetHawks the following night, and unavailable until at least the first week of May due to a back muscle issue that was buggying him. Let's hope he gets his Breaking Amish stuff back soon to complement his fastball.

Apparently the Dodger fan base's love for all bobble collectibles knows no bounds and is happy to ignore the ugliness and utter lack of resemblance to the actual player being depicted.

Kershaw Arrives for a Bullpen Session

This one is sold out, so be sure to to arrive early and take public horse-drawn transportation to ease traffic congestion and exemplify simplistic, traditional values.

I wish we could give Andre a break. I know he won't come out but if he's still hitting poorly by this weekend, I would sit him Sunday, then again for some of the cold-ass games in Minnesota

Steve Sax said...

Great GT, Dusty. Man, Amish you guys.

Orel said...

But it's beardly a month into the season.

Steve Sax said...

And just to be clear, it's not just Dusty; it's all the sons. I miss all you Mennonite games like these.

I love the fact that the Quake(r)s are playing Lancaster tomorrow night. Two other Amish/Quaker/Lancaster,PA/quirky but peaceful religious sects references. How random is that?

karen said...

Love the GT Dusty.

Pedro Cerano (Dennis Hatsbert) in the house tonie. He'll be the guest PA guy.

karen said...

^tonite

Dusty Baker said...

Puig is just going through Rumspringa now. It's a rite of passage that he should be encouraged to go through before he settles down.

Fred's Brim said...

Fuck you Ruiz, I do it myself!

Dusty Baker said...

This is my sixth game attended and third that I will see Harenhall pitch.

karen said...

Wow. Hanley hit that hard.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Yeah, nice to see him Zwingli bat well again.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Épale, minions!

Hi Stubbsy!

Orel said...

It's too early for this shit, Danny.

Hideo Nomo said...

Orel said...

Phillies get men on 1st & 3rd with no out and can't score. Good job, Danny!

Franklin Stubbs said...

I need more. I'm greedy like that.

@Stubbsy...You're not looking so greedy about now.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Upfuckery: The Revenge

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'm still greedy, just greedy and dismayed.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Right in the armpit, goddamit

Orel said...

There's that Dodger defense we know and love.

karen said...

Cerano's in the house. Maybe he can sacrifice a chicken for Jobu.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That was embarrassing

karina said...

Well, the upside is we have runner on scoring position

*cries*

karen said...

I hate Buster Posey.

Orel said...

Steve Sax said...

The irony of a bearded one losing it for us on Amish night is noted.
