Game 64 Thread: June 8 @ Rockies, 1p

Clayton Kershaw (4-2, 3.32) vs. Jorge De La Rosa (6-4, 3.68)

This season has truly turned into an American Horror Story. The Noffense continues to be a bane; the once-stolid bullpen has been cursed; and the outfield has turned into a witches brew of injuries, poor play, shifting positions, and bruised egos.

To top it all off, not one but two players went down to hip injuries in yesterday's game. Namely, the two players who have provided much of the offensive spark (when it actually burned) during the season so far - Gordon and Puig. It's as if a dark priestess (surely associated with the Giants) broke out a voodoo doll and started poking the hip area (Gordon and Puig), the ankle area (Crawford), and the butt area (Kemp, because he seems ass-hurt).

At this point, many are calling for Donnie to be burned at the stake. Perhaps he needs to Coven another team meeting to try to bring this lethargic, talented yet seemingly uninspired bunch back from the dead.

Let's hope Kershaw reveals himself as the Supreme today.

Not a Dre day against Of the Rose. Sweet shitsucking jesus, look at this lineup.

karen said...

Great GT Dusty. Could our lineup be any weaker? Donnie must not be too nervous about the pending stake burning.

Congratulations Rafael Nada on his NINTH French Open Championship!

karen said...

^Oops...Nadal.

Dusty Baker said...

Hopefully our hitting isn't Nada today.

karen said...

Slight rain falling at Coors. Tarp is on the field but no word on possible delay. As much as I hate rain outs, with this lineup, it might be a blessing.

spank said...

Fuck it. I'm getting drunk. Who's with me?

karen said...

I'm with you, Spank...on one condition, you need to hang with me here a little today if the rain doesn't get us.

karen said...

Tarp coming off the field. They're saying they should get the game in.

Dusty Baker said...

All in, brother Spanky!

Dusty Baker said...

Grande Cadillac up in dis bish!

karen said...

For those without TWC, it was just pointed out that Kid K has the highest BA in the lineup today. This ought to be a beaut. I can hardly wait.

Orel said...

I can't hardly not wait.

Dusty Baker said...

Great stat, Karen...thx.

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

TJ SImers finally shit-canned. Good riddance you sack of shit.

Fred's Brim said...

yay, time to lose another series

Fred's Brim said...

Chonie Chones

Fred's Brim said...

De La Rosa very generous so far, probably purposely just setting us up for greater frustration

Fred's Brim said...

If we didn't have no outfielders, I would say sit AG and put SVS at first vs the lefty

Fred's Brim said...

Adrian continues to stink it up. he has that nice run a couple of weeks ago but has been donk since

Fred's Brim said...

Chone with the steal of third

karen said...

That was close at third.

Fred's Brim said...

and they're reviewing the very close play, looks barely safe

karen said...

Now reviewing the call at third. Looks like maybe he was in there.

karen said...

Safe. Good call.

Fred's Brim said...

lucky with the safe call

Fred's Brim said...

you should get tossed for arguing after a replay

Dusty Baker said...

I'm keeping up w the game thru this thread. Just not feeling the GameDay tip today.

Fred's Brim said...

Matty with a 2 RBI triple! It was probably a double but the CF couldn't cut it off for some reason

karen said...

As our resident Matt Kemp Whore, I feel it is my responsibility to speak for MKW's everywhere in saying its about damn time.

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley looked to be grimacing as he came around third but he's always grimacing. I can't tell when he's hurt or just Hanley

Fred's Brim said...

hehe well said, karen

Orel said...

Where do I sign up to be a MKW?

Dusty Baker said...

Two things:

1) Karen is already MVP of this GT with that MKW comment.

2) Can we start calling Hanley "Grimace"?

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, bad K for SVS, Matty still at third

Fred's Brim said...

Now De La Rosa is getting the calls

Fred's Brim said...

and Romak gets rung up on another pitch that wan't a strike earlier in the inning

karen said...

Matty left at third. 2-0 Good Guys.

Fred's Brim said...

i am sleeeeepy, gonna take a few innings off
Shut'em down, CK!

Dusty Baker said...

2-0? Sweet?

Where you at, Spankster?

Dusty Baker said...

Rally, FB!

karen said...

I wonder if Donnie apologized to Kid K when posting this lineup.

karen said...

Coffee brewing time, FB!

Dusty Baker said...

Karen and Dust calling FB out.

Dusty Baker said...

45

karen said...

Kid K's the side. 2-0 Blue.

Dusty Baker said...

Sounds like Kid K cruising so far.

karen said...

@Dust...Tulo did get around on one but lined it barely foul. Other then that, Kid looked very good.

Dusty Baker said...

Thx, MKW.

karen said...

Boys out quickly. Despite being down 2-0, Del la Rosa has 5 SO's.

karen said...

Dusty...he he, love it!!

spank said...

rum and coke. family visiting,DB. getting Time Warner cable soon hopefully when i move into my new place. be around more unfortunately for all y'all.

Dusty Baker said...

We miss your regular presence and wisdom, Spank. Siempre bienvenido.

karen said...

@Spanky...I can't wait!

karen said...

Rox on 1st and 3rd with 1 out...and rain is beginning to fall.

Orel said...

The Fat Tire has landed. In my belly

Orel said...

Hope Dinger gets soaked

karen said...

Kid gets out of the inning striking out the side again. Now has 6 K's. Still 2-0 Dodgers.

karen said...

Looks like the rain is coming down harder. Charley thinking its only a matter of time.

karen said...

I'd hate to lose Clay because of a long delay. He's looking his best since coming off DL. Chone opens with a single.

karen said...

Dodgers out in top of 3. Del La Rosa at 64 pitches. Still 2-0.

Orel said...

Kemp leads off next inning!

Orel said...

A single! Celebrate, MKW!

karen said...

Orel...I was still celebrating when he got thrown out on the front end of the DP. Maybe I was being too cocky?? Nah...

Orel said...

And that's why there are no SVSW's.

karen said...

Orel...I thought maybe it was on account of that mess on his mug!

karen said...

Fvck...Tulo with the solo. 2-1 Blue.

Dusty Baker said...

What's happening now?

Dusty Baker said...

^ANd I'm not referencing an ill-advised sequel to the sit-com classic, "What's Happening."

karen said...

Dusty...2 out, top of 5, Kid K AB. 2-1 Blue. Rain still coming down hard.

karen said...

Going to bot of 5. Rain is intense. Pray for an official game. Now lightening and thunder. Umps are talking.

Fred's Brim said...

NAP COMPLETED!

Fred's Brim said...

hurry up, CK!

Fred's Brim said...

Wheeler being a pest at the plate, fouling off lots of pitches

karen said...

We missed you, FB! I think you might be just in time for a rain delay.

Fred's Brim said...

SVS runs down the drive in the pouring rain

karen said...

Dusty...2 out in bot of 5. Almost there.

Fred's Brim said...

Rojas with a nice play at third, AG sticks with the high through to get LeMahieu

Fred's Brim said...

@karen, I hope it's just in time for a win!

Fred's Brim said...

don't walk the pitcher, please

karen said...

Its official.

Fred's Brim said...

and he battles back to K him

we are official

karen said...

HanRam rakes it! It clears the stands. 3-1 Dodgers.

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley with the megadonk!

karen said...

Romak with his first ML hit, a double, scores Agon and My Matty who both walked. Now Rojas with his first hit drives in Romak. And I was bitching about this lineup! 6-1 Dodgers after 5 1/2.

Dusty Baker said...

Tell me re the megadonk rake.

Dusty Baker said...

Holy Vin! 6-1?!?!?!

Dusty Baker said...

What's weather situ?

karen said...

Dusty...Rox measured it a 461'. Our guys in the booth thought it was longer. They just called a rain delay in middle of 5th.

Dusty Baker said...

So not official game yet?

karen said...

^Mid 6.

karen said...

Sorry Dust. My brains are still mush from Kings game =)

Dusty Baker said...

My brains, liver, heart, and soul are still mush from the Kings game. And from 44 years of health indifference.

Dusty Baker said...

How are we doing, my Funk Spank Brother?

Fred's Brim said...

@spank, are you in Padres territory? Will you be able to get the Dodgers when you get TW or will they black you out?

Dusty Baker said...

Or will Spank black himself out?

Dusty Baker said...

Hope Colletti is high so he won't see this:

"Chris Cotillo @ChrisCotillo
Sources: Heath Bell opts out of #Orioles deal and is now a free agent. Team wasn't calling him up."

Fred's Brim said...

when will they call this officially? Other than the 5 inning thing, I've never known the rules about when a game is called vs delayed

Fred's Brim said...

I hope Colletti is out shopping for cowboy boots during the rain delay and misses that news

karen said...

How long has this delay been? How long until Kid is lost t

karen said...

Oh geez! I hit Enter on accident! This is my stupid way of asking how long before Kid K can't come back out??

Dusty Baker said...

K isn't coming back out.

We'll have to leave it to our cursed Coven-pen.

karen said...

I don't want to say this cause it'll come back to Haunt me, but the Coven has done okay the last couple of days for the most part, short of Perez.

I am now burning sage to off set any evil bullpen spirits I may have released by making that observation.

Fred's Brim said...

looks like we're starting back up at the top of the hour

karen said...

Hated Ones beat Mets 6-4.

Fred's Brim said...

I remember when Nomo pitched his no-hitter at Coors. I think it was right after a long rain delay and the humid air really helped his pitches break

spank said...

Spank is doing fine these days. It was sketchy there for a while but i only see blue skies now.

@ FB - I do live on the outskirts of the SD radar but the Padres have no pull when it comes to Time Warner and the Dodgers like they have with the Dish and Directv.

Fred's Brim said...

PARTYMAKINGTIME!

Fred's Brim said...

I'll take it!

karen said...

I was all prepared to resume but fuck yeah I'll take it!!

Dusty Baker said...

Ill definitely take it!

spank said...

Make Party Time...Literally!

Orel said...

PGTUP!
