Game 7 Thread: April 5 vs. Giants, 1p

Paul Maholm (0-0, -.--) vs. Ashley Madison (0-0, 0.00).

The Dodgers' vaunted starting pitching is reeling, with an uncharacteristic performance yesterday by Hyun-Jin Ryu, Clayton Kershaw on the DL, and now even Josh "Beer-swilling" Beckett injuring himself fielding a bunt in a Class-A game. I can't make this stuff up.

So we look to Paul Maholm, a journeyman pitcher who had seven mediocre years with the Pirates before rolling around the league, to get us back into the win column. Maholm pitched 0.1 IP in Game 2 in Sydney, striking out Miguel Montero on four pitches with a runner on first in the ninth inning. He was relieved by Kenley Jansen, who gave up a two-run HR before closing the game up. Why the heck not Maholm, I suppose?

Hopefully Yasiel Puig will get to the Stadium bright and early this time, so he too can be rolling with Maholmies.

Thank you Rancho Cucamonga! Good night!

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Pagan might be my least favorite Giant. I think it's the Julio Iglesias hair

QuadSevens said...

That hair is terrible

Fred's Brim said...

wow! attaboy, Hanley!
Great DP

Fred's Brim said...

Turner second? ugh

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley ripped that one for a ground rule double down the line

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, bag lefty-vs-left K of AGon for the third out

Fred's Brim said...

bad^

Fred's Brim said...

wow, Uribe with a nice play from deep third

Fred's Brim said...

Maholler getting squeezed a little

Fred's Brim said...

they are fucking nickle-n-diming us again

Fred's Brim said...

how many goddamn Brandons do you need?

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

gotta bet Madison, no excuse with the pitcher

Fred's Brim said...

Where the fuck was that, ump?!?

Fred's Brim said...

Maddy called out on Ks

Fred's Brim said...

Barnburner is getting strikes that Maholler isn't

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, SVS, good eye

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe pokes a double that gets by the Hair, SVS scores from first! 1-1 good guys

Steve Sax said...

Uribe ties it!

Steve Sax said...

Love it baby

Fred's Brim said...

AJ with a laser but right at the Hair, 2 outs, Maholler up

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Fred's Brim said...

Maholm works the count to 3-2 but strikes out on ball 4

spank said...

Orel said...

Feels lucky to be tied.

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty Baker said...

spank said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

nice play, Paulie

Fred's Brim said...

great start, AG!

Fred's Brim said...

youch, that had to hurt
Matty needs guards all around his ankles

Fred's Brim said...

and Matty Ks again
Someone should tell him Bummer is a lefty

Fred's Brim said...

AG's not leaving second, is he?

Fred's Brim said...

I like it when Vin says "zephyr"

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, 2 ugly Ks in a row

Fred's Brim said...

dammit, ump, cut the shit

Fred's Brim said...

sheezus what a waste

Fred's Brim said...

FERCHRISTSAKE, don't give up hits to pitchers

Fred's Brim said...

third time through the lineup, will they start hitting him hard?

Fred's Brim said...

Hair with the well-placed dribbler, Paul in trouble

Fred's Brim said...

Dominguez up? How the hell do you go to him after his 2 innings yesterday?

Fred's Brim said...

Nice crowd there today, only the upper corners look open

Orel said...

Man, this team. Complete domination or complete disaster.

BJ Killeen said...

shit. I sign on in the air and this is what I hear??

Fred's Brim said...

godDAMMIT!
Son of a c

Fred's Brim said...

sheezus, we gotta pitch better than this. this is pathetic

Steve Sax said...

Dear Paul Maholm.

You are horrible.

Sax

karen said...

Just got here and was starting to say what a luxury to get to see the game.

Fuck you fat ass.

I HATE these assholes.

Fred's Brim said...

fer fuck's sake

Fred's Brim said...

Why the hell is Dominguez back out there?

BJ Killeen said...

And I paid for Gogo inflight to hear this crap?

Fred's Brim said...

This Left Hand Sawtooth Nitro is not helping things

Steve Sax said...

Dominguez is pulling a maholm

Steve Sax said...

Hey BJ! Where ya' headed?

Fred's Brim said...

he should be pulling his pud instead of pitching

Fred's Brim said...

Dominguez has a crazy change to go with that 95+ fastball

Fred's Brim said...

but he still shouldnt be pitching today

karen said...

Isn't Buster due for a broken leg anytime now?

Hollandsworth said...

So sorry. Dozed off.

Hopefully I'm in time to proclaim my most vitriolic "what the fucking shit is this" in regards to this game.

spank said...

score was tied. i took a shower. now we losing by 5. i'm going to stop showering forever.

Fred's Brim said...

Chone with the Luchini intro!

Fred's Brim said...

meeksauce

Hideo Nomo said...

Sorry I'm late guys, but Winter Soldier was FUCKING AWESOME.

This game? Not so much.

Hollandsworth said...

This obscenely cheap, unintentionally hilarious Discount Auto Parts commercial is certainly the high point of today's game.

Hollandsworth said...

And good to hear, Nomo. Got my ticket tonight so I can see it/review it.

Fred's Brim said...

7 pinch hit homers for Dave Hansen? I know he had the most pinch hits but it never felt like he did anything for us

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, dummy

Hideo Nomo said...

Gonna be a mighty big hole to climb out of once Kershaw gets back. Not that they can't do it, but they shouldn't have to. Y'know?

Fred's Brim said...

of course
somebody drill that dick

Hollandsworth said...

For FUCKS SAKE.

karen said...

This is my first time seeing Matty this season. Don't tell anyone, but just seeing him is curling my toes.

Fred's Brim said...

and we get Detroit next, wonderful

Fred's Brim said...

I hope somebody is keeping track of Sandoval's weight. I bet he'll be back to fat by season's end

karen said...

I'm all for catchers not getting their legs broken, unless of course said catcher is Buster Posey, but I'm really going to miss those close plays at the plate.

Fred's Brim said...

Leave him out there, Bochy

BJ Killeen said...

Sax:
Detroit. Fun, eh!

Fred's Brim said...

hey, something nice happened to us

Fred's Brim said...

naw, Rags, he's OK, he's good for 10-15 more pitches, especially this early in the season

Fred's Brim said...

MVDee

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Bochy you chump, let him finish the inning

Fred's Brim said...

of course

karen said...

He looked safe to me.

Steve Sax said...

Yep, wise idea to send Ellis from second when Hanley Ramirez is up next.

Dodgers get only 1, now 7-2 through 7.

Fred's Brim said...

It has to be bad luck to give away doormats

Fred's Brim said...

aint nothing going right

Steve Sax said...

dammit Matty

Steve Sax said...

Why can't we hit with RISP?

Fred's Brim said...

have we ever been able to hit with RISP?

Fred's Brim said...

why am I still watching this?

Fred's Brim said...

Kenley getting the fastball up to the high 90s, too bad they are nowhere near the strike zone

Fred's Brim said...

22 pitches for Jansen is enough I guess
Jamey in for a meaningless batter (or 3)

spank said...

boooooooooooooooo

karen said...

Highlight of the game is that throw Puig just unleashed. Even if there were 3 outs.

Fred's Brim said...

Greinke looks angry in his picture

Fred's Brim said...

I look angry in real life
laters, yall
