Game 19 Thread: April 27 vs. Giants, 7p

Tonight's stadium giveaway.

Brett Anderson (1-1, 5.40) vs. Madison Bumgarner (1-1, 4.63).

After rolling over and playing dead in SF, the Dodgers traveled to "pitcher-friendly" confines of Petco Park and scored a total of 15 runs over three games. Okay, 11 of those runs were in that bizarre Game 2, but the point is that THEY'RE A TOTALLY DIFFERENT TEAM NOW. And just in time, as the Giants come rolling into town having split two in Colorado (yesterday's game was rained out).

Who had Brandon McCarthy (probably) heading to the DL before Brett Anderson? With an injury epidemic hitting NL pitchers (McCarthy, Wainwright, Scherzer) and with Ryu already warming his haunches on the DL, the last thing the Dodgers need is for Anderson to live up to his injury history. Slow and steady wins the race, Brett. No need to be a hero.

I feel bad for Wainwright--brutal to lose an achilles on that move.

It is painful to watch what is happening in Baltimore. I was privileged to attend several games at Camden Yards during Cal's streak. It is a beautiful park and I pray that the people of Baltimore as well as their beautiful ballpark will be safe and rise above those that would do harm to their city.

RIP Freddie Gray...I hope that your death represents peaceful change for everyone.

karen said...

YOU THE MAN, JOC!!!

spnk said...

spnk said...

Fred's Brim said...

karen said...

I miss Timmeh's long, grease ball hair. Without it, he looks like he might actually bathe once or twice a month.

karen said...

This Maxwell kid is going to be a pain in the arse for us.

spnk said...

GREASE YR HAIR TIMMEH

karen said...

Did I just say that that kid was going to be the bane of our exsistance? I'll have to whip up some kind of hex on the little prick.

spnk said...

see what you did,karen?!!

spnk said...

still don't know why come Guerrero ain't playing. Rollins sucks,Urine is fat and old and i ain't getting any younger and would like to see the Dodgers win a championship before i depart the Earth.

karen said...

I will take complete responsibility until my voodoo spell is in place. Then dude will wish he never donned the pathetic black and orange. His own damn fault though, no sympathy here.

karen said...

Spank...on winning before we depart to the great beyond...I think about that too. They owe us, I refuse to die until they pay off.

spnk said...

no sympathy. that's right. i expect nothing less,kid.

karen said...

Timmeh you little fuck, you'll make me a fan yet. 1-0 Good over Evil.

spnk said...

Puig scores. 1-0 dodgers. rallytime!

spnk said...

Steve Sax said...

Giants' pen "moving the furniture"

Steve Sax said...

Oyster Pubes meanwhile is choosing the color of the drapes

spnk said...

my hate for the Padres is creeping up to my hate of the Gnats. it's the O'Malley thing.

Steve Sax said...

Kontos up in SF's pen

spnk said...

DUDE!!

Steve Sax said...

Pederson ALMOST got that... long double makes it 4-0 LA

Cliff Beefpile said...

Timmah got Joc Strapped!

4-0 Dodgers!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dammit, Uribe!

Steve Sax said...

WTF Uribe, you just stole an RBI from Anderson

spnk said...

make me eat my words,Rollins,you sorry sack you

spnk said...

that's why he's Urine

Steve Sax said...

Rollins, now would be a good time to break your slump

karen said...

It's always fun when the Boys bat around, but here is just something so sweet about it when Timmeh is on the mound.

spnk said...

nice inning for the Dodgers bats.

Steve Sax said...

dammit Jimmy, when are you going to play

Steve Sax said...

okay, that flurry of typing has made me tired. gotta go find sustenance.

karen said...

^there

Steve Sax said...

Oooh, TWC can do interstitial commercials on the hexagonal Dodgers scoreboard. Neato.

Steve Sax said...

Vin talking of McCarthy's UCL injury.

Steve Sax said...

what happened to carl crawford earlier this game? triple in the second, and now he's hurt?

Steve Sax said...

geez we need like 29 outfielders on the roster for now on.

And 47 starting pitchers.

spnk said...

we need a roster size like football

spnk said...

come on,Puig!!!

karen said...

@Saxy...I'm not sure about CC cause I was just walking into the room and caught the tail end of it but he may have done something to his leg running out the triple. Could be wrong, I'm mostly guessing here.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I guess the price for Cole Hamels just went way up.

spnk said...

did i see Vlade Divac in the front row? nimodo. thank you for kobe,holmes.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Godfuckingdammit, get the third out, assholes!

karen said...

Shit oh shit oh shit oh shit

karen said...

And the devil is coming up...

spnk said...

i would say to call the firefighters to put out this blaze but they are all watering down the burning meth lab 4 blocks away. straight the fuck up!

spnk said...

Greinke is an angry dude. i've never seen him smile. i like that.

karen said...

I wonder if that's the same meth lab that caters to suicidal Dodgers fans.

karen said...

Here comes that Maxwell fucker again.

spnk said...

oh shit. that wasn't Vlade Divac. it was Rick Rubin. my bad.

spnk said...

maxwell edison?

spnk said...

boooze status : oh yeah,baby!

Cliff Beefpile said...

I'd like to beat the shit out of this gnats team with a silver hammer.

karen said...

Didn't the Beatles have a song about Maxwell's silver hammer came down on his head, Maxwell's silver hammer made sure that he was dead??

Weren't the Fab Four thought by some to be quite prophetic? Just askin'.

spnk said...

nice catch,Puig!!

spnk said...

my love for the Beatles just increased. they are Gnat haters like me.

spnk said...

Thanks Joc, some much needed breathing room.

karen said...

Great pitch

spnk said...

Steve Sax said...

karen said...

Spank...I'm sticking with the crack. Seems to be doing the trick for now.
