Random rantings and ravings about the Los Angeles Dodgers, written by a small consortium of rabid Dodger fans. With occasional comments on baseball, entertainment, pop culture, and life in general.
Dee hurt. Just got here so don't know exactly what. Chone in at second for him.
Must've been the Dr. Strange graphic from yesterday's PGT that doomed Dee
Now Yasiel out with possible injury. SVS in right for him. Only word on Dee is "leg injury".
Dee with "right hip discomfort. Day to day".
Rox with 2-0 lead. Men on 1st and 3rd, no out in 5th.
I blame my shitty GT. Won't happen again.
Yasiel with a hip injury as well and is day to day. Dee in the dugout rooting on his mates. 3-0 Rox going to bottom of 6th.
SHITTY is today's theme.
I think we'll make a separate Stanley Cup GT so as not to infect the Kings with whatever the Dodgers are coughing up.
JT scores Matty with a single, Dre on 3rd and JT on 1st with still no out in 7th. Weiss pulling Chacin. 3-1 Rox. Matty showing some hustle today. Maybe in response to Donnie or maybe the discord at SoSG? Mmmm....
Glad to see Matty producing.
3 RUN HOMER FROM FEDEX!!! 4-3 Blue!!
@Orel...I was just about to vote in favor of the separate GT but now??
Holy shit it's a rally!
Good point, Karen. Will continue to monitor the situation.
Good size Dodger crowd in Denver today.
Holy shit, it's 4-3 Dodgers?!?!
Mariners - Tampa game is also on here. Zimmer's granddaughter (?) threw out the first pitch in a Zimmer Dodgers jersey. As it should be.
Weiss now pulling Masset. Boys on 1st and 3rd with 2 out, still in 7th. Puig also now in dugout rooting on the guys. I'm thinking that Dee and Yasiel being in the dugout is a good sign. Either that or I'm so deep in denial I'll never dig out. 4-3 Boys.
Adrian bounces out. 7th inning stretch time. @Jason....I'm so glad to hear Zim's gdaughter was wearing the Dodgers jersey. I like to think of him as one of ours.
There's no denial there, karen. Only team unity. (I'm trying on karina glasses today)
JT goes for the bare handed play but throws wide to 1st. Stubbs (again, theirs not ours) on 2nd repping tying run. 2 out.
Game tied at 4. Zack at 100 pitches now pitching to Tulo.
7th over. 4-4 Boys. Zack gives JT a "Its not your fault, bud" pat on the butt as they jog off the field. Awwww...I love it when we all get along!! (Again, me being Pollyanna).
But that was a certain-to-hold-up 4-3 lead!
Dodgers go down in the ninth. Rockies all set for the walkoff.
@Orel...I thought so too, but I'm shoulder deep in the denial hole!
JP on in relief. No walk off here.
JP gets the first out.
Stubbs (theirs not ours) with the single to left. Dickerson up.
Stubbs (theirs not ours) picked off trying to steal second. 2 out.
Pickoff! 2 out!
The Dick man grounds to Adrian. Going to extras. My tummy feeling funny. Don't know if I'm excited or scared. =0
Kings game has started...Dodgers in extras...guess this is the Stanley Cup GT as well.
Has Kemp been making contact at least?
Turner singles. No score at Staples with 17:18 left in the first period.
FedEx can't re-create the magic. To the bottom of the 10th we go.
Nomar saying that the Kemp we saw today is the one that we have been expecting to see. Hersch responding that "The laziness we saw in the box yesterday was a wakeup call for Matt" and his teammates will respond to his passion and intensity today. We can only hope.Dodgers out in top of 10th, Tulo leading off the bottom for Rox.
Aaugh, so close!
So Kemp was lazy in the box? The Dodgers won. Where's the lesson? Not challenging you, Karen, but rather OG Orel.
A lot of big saves on both ends of the ice so far.
Perez retires Tulo. We should win the game just for that.
@Orel...I thought Matty was looking better yesterday but not nearly as good as today. Rox just got hit. Winning run on 1st with 1 out. Chris Perez pitching.
Inspector Morneau singles. One on, one out.
Rangers about to start a PP.
That's good to hear, Karen. He can shut everybody up if he just starts to hit.
Dodgers go down. Shit.
2 outs. Only 2 hitters on Dodger bench are Rojas and Butera. Nevermind. Damned Rox just won the game.
Kings just got a nice shorthanded look.
Staples sounds loud!
Think Matty could have gotten that?
Oh wait, this is Coors Field. I retract my last question.
@Orel...3 years ago.
Kings kill the PP. No score with 9:49 left in the first period.
Ouch, Karen. You speak the truth.
Maybe we should've gone with the dual GT after all??
Shit. Rangers strike first.
Probably, Karen. Too late now!
Retweeted by Jill Painter LopezGreg Beacham @gregbeacham 1hBritney Spears just walked into Staples Center for Game 2.
Orel...Hope she brought the good juice!
Kings on the PP. Let's go!
Damn you Lundquist! (I'm American. u always comes after q)
2-0 Rangers. Are we doing this again??
End of 1st. 2-0 New Yawkers
What a pass by Williams!
A lotta stick-losing going on tonight.
Damn so close
Lundqvist is bringing it tonight
Anyone want a Sunkvist soda?
Hey Dude! U's after Q's!!
Man. Another close shot.
Is that like bros before hoes?
Another fruitless PP
Orel..."Bros before hoes"...That's exactly where that was coming from. #barneyrocks
Shit. 3-1 Rangers. Kings can't keep doing this to themselves.
Kings on another PP
How did you ever beat me on that one??
FUCK Rangers strike right back. 4-2
More sloppy play by the Kings
Bro Code, Orel. Bro Code.
My god, Kings. You're better than this.My god, Dodgers. You're better than this.My god, Chrome. You're better than this.
You just stole that from me! I had a whole Dodgers/Chrome/Kings theme working here.
Just jumped into the thread, Karen. Sorry if I doubled up on something you already said. I'm sure you said it better!
Rangers lead the Kings 4-2 after two. Still time, but Kings have to produce a masterpiece in the third.
Nah Dusty. I hadn't said it yet. I was working it in my head. =)
Here we go...
Henrik still bringing it
Scored within the first two minutes of the period. Really needed that.
Let's make it another OT game!
14 minutes left
The Comeback Kids!
OH MY GOD!!
If the Kings score, they'll win by more than one
Always on the same page, Karen.
Can Dodgers sign Gaborik at the trade deadline?
I hope the Kings fans are making the building shake.
This game just got a lot tighter and cleaner
We really need this. I don't want to go to NY with a split.
I know, Karen. I'm wondering why they aren't all standing
Not sure if I could be any more nervous. Plus, I'm out of beer.
@Dust...Yeah, I've got that same feeling in my stomach and nothing to medicate myself with.
Stop being a dik, Henrik!
Kings seem to be feeling it now.
^Jinx protection enacted previous to my last comment
Wow. This LundqUist dude is killing us.
@Dusty...We also have to enact the jinx protection code to offset any 'Dodgers Losing Curse' crossover.
We Muzzin panic!
TWO MINUTES LEFT
Overtime it is!
Wow. Can we poor LA fans handle this??
This is the good stuff, Karen!
I know it is, Orel. But I'm the same girl who wonders why I wanted the Dodgers in the Postseason as I'm throwing up trying to watch it!
UPDATE: Just found some beer I had hidden in the back of MDIL's fridge. Crisis temporarily averted.
Dusty pulls out the win! Your turn, Kings!
I know what you mean, Karen!
Dusty...And here I was picturing you making a crazy ass beer run!
Drink 2 or 6 for me, Dusty!
The beer run consisted of me running across the sidewalk to MDIL's to look in her fridge. Glad I remembered that stash.
So it was literally a run.
HERE WE GO
"The Kings will take the icing." I THINK SO
I'm having to watch this like I do a scary movie, through my fingers.
Somebody go scare Karen with a hockey mask!
Orel wants me to have a heart attack!!
Carter takes one for the team
Just a little cardio work, Karen
Carter just nailed in the side of the face.
Arash Markazi @ArashMarkazi 57sCarter takes a stick to the face. He has already lost most of his teeth so no real loss on the dental front.
Here we go on the PP...
PP down to 1:00
There's flopping in hockey!
aaugh so close
Holy shit Zucchini man almost scored
Rangers on the PP
Fuck! So close!
Jill Painter Lopez @jillpainter 1mTrainer ran onto ice to check out Lundqvist, who was down, & Toffoli, just standing near, gets shoved by trainer
Holy shit that exchange. Both teams with huge chances
1:30 left in OT
43.5 to go in 1st OT.
Another OT anyone??
Hey why not
Man oh man that game got dicey for awhile.Hey Orel...Will there be a GT for Rafa Nadal to kick Novak Jockavic's ass tomorrow??Only kidding!
Rafa fan, huh?
here we go againon our own
A little Van Halen on the Staples Center organ
Jill Painter Lopez @jillpainter 7sRemember when we all thought it couldn't get better than Chicago-LA and the Western Conference Final?
I've been a Rafa fan since before he was legally of age for me to be so!
Orel...We've lost Dusty. He must have found more beer then he let on to.
That's so Hefner of you
You can see how tired these guys are
I'm here. Too nervous to type.
Too funny on the Hef comment!!
Hey Dust! I thought maybe you drowned in your suds!
Hit us with some masterful hockey insight, Dusty
No too nervous to drink too. Heard it here first.
I hope Dinger gets knee cancer
These guys are dead on their feet. It's going to be a painful loss for someone.
Hey FB!Yeah, whoever gets on the plane a loser will be wiped.
Knee cancer made the dinosaurs extinct
Dinos were very knee-centric
Love that random drive-by by FB.
vodka sodas if anyone was wondering
so close AGAIN
We're making up for yesterday's paltry GT
THERE IT IS!!!
Ha ha, nice one, Kvren!
I was wondering, FB.
Anyone else teary eyed??
3rd straight 2-goal comeback win
My father-in-law was weepy when he called.Cali goes 1-3 today. Thank you sports gods for what you gave us after all. I will sacrifice a beer in your honor.
Darryl Sutter is a man of few words.
