Game 78 Thread: June 23 @ Royals, 5p

Was Zack Greinke's head smaller back then?

Zack Greinke (9-3, 2.57) vs. Jeremy Guthrie (4-6, 3.86).

I've seen this diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on baseball trips, out to KC
But Dodger Stadium's the best
Got it good out west, no post code envy

But then this game's like:
Greinke
Guthrie
(Only one is 9-3)
A. Gordon
Dee Gordon
(Only one leads SBs)

We don't care, we need no bullpen in our dreams

But everybody's like:
LA
KC
(Only one's the WC)
Pork ribs
Boulevard
(Maybe you have got us there)

We don't care, we're here for baseball, not to eat.*

And we're gonna play Royals.

(*) We normally might be partaking, but, Juan Uribe is extending his rehab assignment in Rancho Cucamonga.

Oh yeah, it's DH time again. CC's busted ass is nowhere to be found, however.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Fucking Brilliant.

Steve Sax said...

Uribe's ass has been found. But it isn't in KC

Hideo Nomo said...

Dodgers be swipin' yo' material, Saxy!

Franklin Stubbs said...

I would characterize Uribe's ass a primarily "prodigious". It is also busted, but that's not the main modifier.

Fred's Brim said...

Saxy you're a genius

Fred's Brim said...

Cain to second on the Hosmer chopper to first

Fred's Brim said...

Butler grounder to second for the second out, Cain to 3rd

Fred's Brim said...

Dangerous liner to Adrian for the 3rd out

Fred's Brim said...

Adrian flies to center

Fred's Brim said...

Matty hits it well but it's tracked down in right

Fred's Brim said...

Time for Dre to get going

Fred's Brim said...

Dre rips it down the line but Hosmer snags it and barely beats Dre to the bag

Fred's Brim said...

Oops, Perez takes Grank deep

Fred's Brim said...

Infante flies to Matty for out numer 1

Fred's Brim said...

Pop to left foul territory, Rojas was playing the shift and and had to run a long way

Fred's Brim said...

Single up the middle for Escobar

Fred's Brim said...

I already miss the pitcher hitting

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, awful wild pitch that should have been blocked, Escobar to second

Fred's Brim said...

of course the single brings him home, son of a dh

Fred's Brim said...

tighten it up, fellas!

Fred's Brim said...

Grienks Ks Cain for the final out, 2-0 bad guys, 4 hits already in 2 innings

Fred's Brim said...

Let's get one back

Fred's Brim said...

oh, we have AJ, Rojas and Triunfel coming up, nevermind

Fred's Brim said...

and just like that, AJ hits a leadoff single

Fred's Brim said...

and Rojas hits into the double play of course. I hate the american league

Fred's Brim said...

Triunfel flies to center

Fred's Brim said...

Hosmer Ks for out 1

Fred's Brim said...

Butler with a liner to center. Grienke is very hitable tonight

Fred's Brim said...

going back to where it started is rarely good

Fred's Brim said...

Grienks gets the double play to end the inning

Fred's Brim said...

Dee Ks

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley with a soft bloop that Infante tracks down

Hideo Nomo said...

Me no likey.

Fred's Brim said...

Dyson tracks down Puigs drive to center making a leaping catch

Fred's Brim said...

I feel like we're getting shut out tonight

Hideo Nomo said...

On 60 pitches.

Steve Dittmore said...

Long time listener, first time caller... Making the 3.5 hour drive to KC tomorrow to check out Kershaw et al. Going in early for BP... Will send photos when we return.

Fred's Brim said...

Grienke looks sick to his stomach

Fred's Brim said...

Nice work, Ditty!

karen said...

Watching this game makes me feel like I've taken a sleeping pill.

Orel said...

Looking forward to it, Steve!

Fred's Brim said...

fuck San Diego and the skunky mold that always grows on our bats when we go there

Fred's Brim said...

I would love to see some statistical analysis showing how long bats stay cold after playing in SD

Orel said...

stupid overpriced vacuum cleaner

Orel said...

Now 3-0 Royals

Fred's Brim said...

getting dunked to death
fuck this

Orel said...

Wait, we're playing the Giants?

karen said...

I've been waiting for the obligatory vacuum cleaner reference. It was a good one, Orel. Worth the wait!

Orel said...

Thanks, Karen. I guess it behoovered you to pay attention.

Dusty Baker said...

Just joining this game. Are we sucking or blowing?

Fred's Brim said...

cannot catch a break tonight

Dusty Baker said...

I'm creinke.

Fred's Brim said...

@Dusty, Grienke has been mediocre, leaving balls up and being generally wild. The bats have been San Diego dead. And the Royals have caught a lot of breaks with bloop hits and catching hard-hit balls

Fred's Brim said...

one of those games

Fred's Brim said...

and balls like that

Fred's Brim said...

aint shit going right tonight. Let's get a couple of innings out of Jamey

Fred's Brim said...

Did I say mediocre? I meant stinky

Fred's Brim said...

gnite all

Orel said...

Yup. It's a loss

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck a buncha tonight's game.

Steve Sax said...

Oh Lorde, we lost.

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
