Game 25 Thread: April 26 vs. Rox, 6p

Paul Maholm (0-2, 5.60) vs. Juan Nicasio (2-0, 4.30).

24 games into their season last year, the Dodgers were 12-12. This year they're 13-11. What does that tell us? Hell if I know. But there's no question our Boys in Blue are scufflin' right now, and Maholm doesn't inspire confidence that he'll break the spell. In eight starts against the Dodgers, Nicasio is 3-2 with a 3.67 ERA, so that's inconclusive as well.

The only thing we can be sure of? 6PM start time = SHADOWS!

Can't spell fuck without Uribe in the lineup. Not that it helped any yesterday.

karen said...

Easy first for Maholm.

A good sign?

Dusty Baker said...

Shadows, definitely shadows.

karen said...

Helton wannabe bastard.

Orel said...

Han-dub!

Eric Stephen ‏@truebluela 4m

Hanley Ramirez in his last 4 games plus one at-bat is 8-for-19 (.421) with four doubles and a home run

Dusty Baker said...

Just noted how the upcoming Ryu bobble looks. Sweet! I'm def there for that one.

Orel said...

Maholm retired Tulowitzki. Alert the media!

karen said...

Matty my man!!

karen said...

Weak swing by Dre

Dusty Baker said...

Huge wasted chance. Men on 1 and 3 and that nameless rabble of shite at the bottom of our lineup is shite. I will help pay for another catcher. Butera blows little boys.

Dusty Baker said...

And yeS Katen, that was terrible swing and AB by Dre a while ago. He is still swinging at that out pitch.

karen said...

Atta boy Dee!!

karen said...

Puig goes 1st to 3rd on roller to 3rd. Dee scores. I have to go start my heart.

karen said...

The BEAST goes yard. 3-1 Good guys.

karen said...

Great. Hanley out. Possible thumb injury.

Dusty Baker said...

First Beastie Boys in-game music this season (when I've been here). I thought I was going to cry during Field of Dreams but Intergalactic...niagra falls.

spank said...

that's our Dusty.

Dusty Baker said...

Pretty sad when you bee a visit to the mound to talk abt getting Butera out.

Orel said...

What happened to Hanley???

karen said...

@Orel...He injured his right thumb. Xrays were negative. Conti says he's ok, just a bruise and not related to surgery he had on same thumb.

Orel said...

Thanks, Karen. Was it a HBP? Never seen a guy get hurt so much by things that aren't his fault. He's like the anti-Kemp.

karen said...

Orel...No it wasn't a HBP. It was weird. He hit a slow grounder to 3rd and ran it out. He didn't show any signs of pain until after he passed the bag and then shook his hand and made a face. I don't know what exactly he did.

Bullpen bringing the gas can again

Paul said...

Man even his strikes are missing.

Paul said...

Big strikeout.

Orel said...

Withrow likes to live dangerously. Ks Cargo with the bases sacked. Two out.

Paul said...

Tulo up. Ducks on the pond. Withrow throwing high fastballs. What could go wrong?

Paul said...

Nice.

Orel said...

At least Withrow cleans up his own mess. Walks the bases loaded then Ks Cargo & Tulo to escape. Whew.

spank said...

Paul with the bleak commentary.we're doomed.

spank said...

the force!!

Paul said...

Need to score. This lead doesn't feel safe. There are approximately 1500 active volcanos in the world. Anyone of them could erupt.

Paul said...

Damn Gordon should have scored.

Paul said...

Okay Ubes, blow the hinges off the door.

Paul said...

That was stupid Puig

karen said...

Dee scored before Puig was thrown out. Donnie needs to ask for the review.

karen said...

Dodgers lose the review. Gordon was in. Bad call.


Paul said...

That sucked. At least we got one. On to the 9th unless a catastrophe asteroid hits the earth.

Paul said...

Wilson in trouble. Ubes talking to Wilson about the good ol days.

karen said...

Vin saying that Wilson told powers that be he's not hurt but needs more work. Immediately walks first 2 Rox.

BJ Killeen said...

You're killing me Wilson

Paul said...

Jansen in until League comes in.

Steve Sax said...

Nice to see Donnie finally pulled a quick trigger when a bullpen arm seemed awry. Wilson pulled quick after two quick leadoff walks in the ninth

karen said...

Holy shit.

Steve Sax said...

Nice job Kenley! Dodgers win!

karen said...

Got him. We can't do anything easy.

spank said...

bullpen sucks ass

Hideo Nomo said...

Missed most of this one. Happy we won. Bummed about Wilson and Hanley's hand (again).

Orel said...

PGTUP!
