Game 27 Thread: May 6 @ Brewers, 5p


Joe Wieland (1-4, 5.31) vs. Wily Peralta (0-4, 4.35).

Look, I know the Baseball World Heavyweight Title is on the line. And today's pitching matchup isn't anyone's idea of a duel, so the Dodgers might hit 13 homers. But when I think Brewers, I think Kurt Bevacqua and bubblegum:

It always bothered me that the tips of those calipers are so pointy. THERE WILL BE HELL TO PAY IF YOU BURST BEVACQUA'S BUBBLE.

Isn't he the artist that does those great dolphin paintings?

Orel said...

That's Miguel Batista.

@BillShaikin Red flag for #Dodgers: Ryu's fastball sat 90-91 mph last year, now 82-83 mph, even after 6 weeks rest & rehab: http://fw.to/WZ1H8MW

karen said...

Well crap, that didn't take long.

Orel said...

Two batters in, Dodgers down 2-0

Orel said...

um

Orel said...

The white-gloved gentlemen are here to escort the heavyweight belt to the Milwaukee clubhouse

Steve Sax said...

Wieland, not off on the right foot.

5-0 Mil through ONE

I was gonna turn on the game, but after listening, I'm just going to start drinking.

Steve Sax said...

@karen 4.38p: nice

Steve Sax said...

way to kill the rally SVS

Steve Sax said...

Wieland sporting a 45.00 ERA

Steve Sax said...

Wait a minute, with that first out of the second inning, Wieland's ERA plummets to 33.75

karen said...

@Orel 5:28....Don't let the white gloved gentlemen take our belt yet!! Aren't the rules that if we split we retain?

karen said...

No fat lady singing yet peeps!! 5-1 Bad guys.

karen said...

Not the good kind of bat flip for SVS.

karen said...

JOC!!! 5-2 bad dudes.

what in the wide wide world of sports is going on here?

Fred's Brim said...

woah that was a crazy catch by AG

Fred's Brim said...

So JT is our starting 3rd baseman, isn't he?

Fred's Brim said...

how is Not Chico Lind killing us?

karen said...

Howdy Mr. Brim! Donnie Baseball said that Uribe will be starting tomorrow.

Fred's Brim said...

Santos in to bump Weiland's ERA back into double digits

Fred's Brim said...

hey miss karen!

Fred's Brim said...

that news about Ryu makes me ill. I hope that's just some twitterbait misinformation

Fred's Brim said...

what a shitshow. this is embarassing

Fred's Brim said...

throw overhand, dick

karen said...

Maybe out?

Fred's Brim said...

Santos should be embarrassed with that walk. Ball 4 hit at 50 feet

Fred's Brim said...

Steiner is so bad
"depending in the call it will be one run more or one run less"

Fred's Brim said...

out
something good happens
yay

karen said...

FB...Alana was talking about Ryu during the pregame and said Dodgers were slowing up his rehab because his velocity was so bad.

Orel said...

Is this a four-game series?

karen said...

Yep.

Orel said...

This one sounds ugly all around. Gnomes will have to rule on a possible split

Fred's Brim said...

Gnomes already has: you have to win the series to take the belt

Fred's Brim said...

fuck
we look like a bunch of monkeys fucking a football tonight
FB OWWWWWT

karen said...

Mercifully it is over. Final score 6-3.
