Game 5 Thread: April 2 @ Padres, 7p

(Tyson) Chicken and (Dan) Herring! Get it?

Dan Haren vs. Tyson Ross.

Haren makes his Dodger debut tonight, coming off a spring training session vs. the Angels that was a little bit underwhelming (six runs over two innings). With the news that ace Clayton Kershaw could be out for a month, we're going to need Haren to get out to a quick start in April. The Dodgers haven't lost a series-closing game all year, however, so at least he's got that.

Meanwhile, the Padres start Ross, who is known for his plus slider. I haven't seen exactly what a plus slider is, so I just may have to take a closer look...

BJ Killeen said...

Kids, we just got tickets to opening day...who is going? Let's hang for a beer at the new bars!

rbnlaw said...

I really want to be excited about this season.
In trying to find a cause for my malaise, I find the clusterfuck that is TWC (and in part, Dodger ownership's need to recoup on their investment) at the core.

In other news; I'll be driving to Vegas tonight, so I'll have Vinny on the radio. . .for 3 innings.

spank said...

let's get ready to rumble

spank said...

FUCK THE PADRES!!

Steve Sax said...

I'm in the ticket queue at Petco Park.

Steve Sax said...

Lots of Dodgers fans here!

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Steve Sax said...

Boom!

spank said...

spank said...

3-0 blue

Steve Sax said...

Ellis gets rung up. Boo

Steve Sax said...

Dee gets on with a one out walk, and steals second

Steve Sax said...

Let's go Puig. Take Ross out here.

Fred's Brim said...

so we've got our 3 runs. I thought the batters were instructed to swing through everything until the end of the game

Steve Sax said...

Rancho ardiendo

Fred's Brim said...

rats

Steve Sax said...

HanRam does not look good this year

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Dan

Fred's Brim said...

heh nice work, Dre

Steve Sax said...

AJ Ks to end the inning

Hideo Nomo said...

1. Score early.
2. Drop into the fetal position.
3. Pray you don't get kicked in the face.

Sound strategy.

Fred's Brim said...

Nice work, Dan

Jason said...

I'm considering driving down to Tacoma to see the Isotopes open their AAA season tomorrow night. Do I have a baseball problem? Or should I just say I'm going for the beer?

Fred's Brim said...

Now that we've covered our face, it's time they start kicking us in the kidneys

Fred's Brim said...

@Jason, looks like it'll be pretty rainy tomorrow night

so you may as well just go to a bar in Tacoma

Fred's Brim said...

Here's where Smeth hits another homer

Fred's Brim said...

this feels like that stupid inning of Grienke's last night

Fred's Brim said...

booooolshit

Fred's Brim said...

Headley

Fred's Brim said...

balls

Fred's Brim said...

3-1 good guys after the Alonso single, soon to be 3-2 with a runner still at 3rd with less than 2 outs

Fred's Brim said...

Lucky K of Gyorko
Here's your chance to get out of this

Fred's Brim said...

phew
that might have scored 2

Fred's Brim said...

AJ having a hard time with the ump tonight

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, Alonso steals second without a play

Fred's Brim said...

there is it, attaboy Danny

Jason said...

50% chance of rain. I should use you as a meteorologist more often, FB.

Fred's Brim said...

isn't there always a 50% chance of rain in Tacoma?

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley draws the walk

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley stealing for some reason.
That's it, get your most valuable hitter injured on the basepaths

BJ Killeen said...

Hanley should steal. Ball players are all becoming pansys

Fred's Brim said...

Dre up with Hanley at 3rd after the groundout to first by AGon

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Dre
MLB.tv bonked out before the hit
was it a cheapy or was it a real hit?

Paul said...

What's up all? Someone say bar?

Fred's Brim said...

I said bar.
I also said taco(ma).

Paul said...

@FB
It was a clean line drive to right just over the glove of Jerk off.

Fred's Brim said...

Did the Dodger feed go down? It doesn't seem to be working on MLB.tv but the Padre feed seems fine

Paul said...

Harren looks thinner. Or did the crappy uniforms of the past add 10 pounds?

Fred's Brim said...

@Paul - thanks

Paul said...

I'm getting the Dodger feed on Direct tv right now.

Paul said...

Nice pitching.

Fred's Brim said...

and I just discovered that you can choose "ballpark sound" for the audio. A few murmuring San Diego fans is so much better than any non-Vinny announcers

Fred's Brim said...

OK Paul, you gotta hold it down here. I need some bed

Paul said...

Damn that ball died.

Paul said...

Later FB.

Hideo Nomo said...

Angels fans are on suicide watch.

Hideo Nomo said...

Dodger feed on Direct TV how? MLB Extra Innings?

Jason said...

@FB (if you're still up) - No problem with the SNLA feed on MLB.tv all night. Oddly, I'm having problems with Google Maps though as I try to figure out the quickest route from my office to Tacoma just in case the rain holds off tomorrow.

Jason said...

That was an... odd swing.

Jason said...

Kneecap! Ouch!

Jason said...

Cubs and Pirates just passed the 14th inning stretch

Jason said...

Paco is a true LOOGY now

Jason said...

Echo...

Jason said...

... echo

Paul said...

@Nomo

Yeah. I didn't think I would even get the feed with Extra Innings and would be stuck with the other team's feed only.

Paul said...

Of course once the game is done the channel disappears from existence.

Jason said...

Like FB, I've lost my MLB.tv feed. It's like trying watch a dial-up video circa 1997. Or like watching on Spank's OG PC today.

G'night all!

Hideo Nomo said...

Winz!
