Game 40 Thread: May 12 vs. Marlins, 7p

Dan Haren (4-1, 2.68) vs. Tom Koehler (3-2, 1.99).

Koehler again? Ten days ago in Miami, Koehler needed only 91 pitches to hold L.A. scoreless over seven innings. The Dodgers, fresh off yesterday's demoralizing two-seconds-of-hope moment quashed by an extra-innings collapse, are in Sputter Mode, per respected Yahoo! sportswriter Tim Brown. What ever will shake this team from its haze of mediocrity?

My first attempt at posting the lineup. Let's see if this does the trick.

Gordon
Puig
Ramirez
Gonzalez
Kemp
Ethier
Turner
Droopy Terra
Haren

Steve Sax said...

Look, it's not like our offense can get any Koehler.

Steve Sax said...

Now that I look at it a bit more closely, today's lineup looks like a call for GAARP:

Dee Gordon
Puig
Hanley Ramirez
Adrian Gonzalez
Matt Kemp
Andre Ethier
Turner
Drew Butera
Haren

DP HAM AT DH? Sounds like GAARP to me.

@Sax lol

2 thoughts from the pre-game show:

Stubbs yelling at Turner "you played for the Mets, you don't know anything about winning"

I find very discouraging that they keep saying "it's only May" but don't sound very convinced :(

Orel said...

Buck up, Karina, it's not that bad!

FINALLY THE TABLES ARE TURNED

Fred's Brim said...

time to tighten this shit up

Fred's Brim said...

nice belt, dick

Fred's Brim said...

another broken Belt

Fred's Brim said...

Night Stand with Dick Dietrich with the sac fly

Fred's Brim said...

How many miles of homers will Stanton hit off Haren?

Fred's Brim said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOO
Run you ass!

Fred's Brim said...

he's out

Fred's Brim said...

wake up, Haren

Fred's Brim said...

now is when Haren gives up a bomb

Steve Sax said...

what the hell happened there in the first? We challenged, and won, but they also scored?

Fred's Brim said...

Yelich looks like Steve-O

Steve Sax said...

Dee Gordon grounds to second. One out in the first

Steve Sax said...

Puig is swinging at everything

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax with one out and a runner on third, Stanton hit a slow grounder to first, Haren was slow to get to first and barely beat Stanton to the bag. It was so close that Stanton was called safe but the runner scored. Donnie called for the replay and won it

Steve Sax said...

just as I write that, Puig turns an 0-2 count into a walk. Nice.

Fred's Brim said...

orange

Steve Sax said...

And, Puig CS.

Fred's Brim said...

Puig out by a mile

Steve Sax said...

HanRam walks. Too bad Puig was CS.

Fred's Brim said...

I think he started his steal from the bag

Steve Sax said...

weak popup.

1-0 miami, through 1

Fred's Brim said...

Haren jobbed on the check swing

Fred's Brim said...

nearly turned that DP

Steve Sax said...

1-0 Marlins through 1.5.

Steve Sax said...

FB, it looks like it's just you and me baby.

Steve Sax said...

sitting on adjacent Koehler toilets.

Fred's Brim said...

good recovery, Dan

Steve Sax said...

Can you pass me the toilet paper please

Fred's Brim said...

You reading that magazine?

Steve Sax said...

FB, I think the grand irony is that you and I might be the only two people able to watch this game

Steve Sax said...

1000th career game for Kempy.

Fred's Brim said...

It's pretty sad.
And I could actually sign up for SportsNetLA here if I wanted to

Steve Sax said...

those orange marlins jerseys are horrific

Steve Sax said...

kemp with a sweet single to right on a 2-2 count. Way to go, Matt.

Fred's Brim said...

Matty with the liner to right

Steve Sax said...

ah shit, my video is buffering again. DAMMIT

Fred's Brim said...

those jerseys look like a Cheeto fucking a 2-litre of Sunkist

Steve Sax said...

ethier with another playable pop fly to left.

Fred's Brim said...

Pete and Pete up with one out

Steve Sax said...

Kemp SB.

Turner, get Matt home!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Safe, bishes!

Fred's Brim said...

definitely safe

Steve Sax said...

@FB 745p: LOL

Steve Sax said...

Turner hits it, but Kemp is held at third (which sounds like it was the right move)

Here's Droopy, two out with men at the corners

Franklin Stubbs said...

Larry Bowa would've sent him.

Fred's Brim said...

way to hit it so hard, idiot!

Fred's Brim said...

wow that was close
he's gonna K now

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, 3-2 count and Butera just hooked it a bit too much

Franklin Stubbs said...

Same diff.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck, not deep enough

Franklin Stubbs said...

Satisfactory!

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Danny!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

That fanfare was short

Fred's Brim said...

get it together, Danny

Fred's Brim said...

what the fuck

Fred's Brim said...

get an out!

Fred's Brim said...

a miracle double play gets him out of it

Steve Sax said...

Of course, we tie it at 1 in the second, and then give up two runs in the third.

Running uphill here guys

Steve Sax said...

Is this a Stubbs sighting?

Orel said...

Shit, Kings falling apart again. 3-1 Ducks in the second.

Steve Sax said...

Stubbs, did you see how we did on PB2? Not too shabby

Steve Sax said...

ATL-SF, tied at 1 in T5

Steve Sax said...

3-1 Miami through 3

Fred's Brim said...

Jones will hit at least one homer against us this series

Fred's Brim said...

good inning for Haren

Orel said...

Now 4-1 Ducks. Kings looking like they've run out of post-season magic.

Fred's Brim said...

Droop manages a walk

Fred's Brim said...

terrible bunting

Fred's Brim said...

Moehler reminds me of Scott Erickson in his motion

Fred's Brim said...

Salty America

Fred's Brim said...

holy cow that was donked!!!

karina said...

Puig power! él sabe mucho!

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Hanley, find the feeling

Fred's Brim said...

*jiggles the handle*

Fred's Brim said...

OK Danny, don't give it right back to them

Fred's Brim said...

great inning, Dan

Franklin Stubbs said...

@Sax

Yeah, I was still checking in on progress, but you carried us most of the way.

Franklin Stubbs said...

MORE!

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Dre!

Steve Sax said...

Can Haren bring home Droopy?

Steve Sax said...

Haren takes the 1-2 count to full

Steve Sax said...

Dee with two men on and two out

Steve Sax said...

come on, Puig

Steve Sax said...

nice patience Puigster

6-3 Dodgers

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Hanley, put this one away

Fred's Brim said...

feels like we should have 23 runs

Steve Sax said...

6-3 LA through 5.

We'll need more than that to win today, boys

Fred's Brim said...

AC Anniversary!

Steve Sax said...

Vin talking about the Alex Cora 18-pitch AB, as his story of the game.

Meanwhile, Stanton with a leadoff double in T6.

Steve Sax said...

Giants take a 4-1 lead on the Braves, who suck.

Fred's Brim said...

It's good to see us utilizing some alternative defenses. I feel like we are the last team to do that

Fred's Brim said...

good recovery, Danny

Steve Sax said...

pickoff attempt!?! Like A-Gon is going to run?

Steve Sax said...

Droopy with the deuces wild

Steve Sax said...

100

Steve Sax said...

Droopy K.

Fred's Brim said...

OK this game has another hour in it and I need to go to bed. Hold down the fort, Saxy!

Steve Sax said...

I am in a bathroom stall watching mlb.tv on my iPhone. This is awesome.

Steve Sax said...

Nice 7th, Haren

Steve Sax said...

Wilson gives back two, just like that. 6-5 LA

Steve Sax said...

(I'm out of the bathroom, don't worry)

(Though I feel like I should go back, the way this game is going)

WE WIN??!!
