Game 32 Thread: May 12 vs. Marlins, 7p

Mike Bolsinger (0-0, 1.59) vs. Dan Haren (4-1. 2.68).

Revenge! ABC may have canceled it, but Haren is hoping to keep it alive tonight against the team that paid him to "go away." Let's not underestimate the value to flipping a fat old middle finger to your former bosses.

Although he leads the Marlins starters in traditional categories, Haren's 4.62 FIP suggests a correction may be in order (aaah, I linked to Bleacher Report. Is that still uncool?). And don't forget Dee Gordon also has a chip on his shoulder, despite all the nice things he's saying to the media.

According to that lineup, we've got 3G service at the Stadium tonight....

Steve Sax said...

...too bad Greinke isn't pitching for 4G

Orel said...

better yet

Liberatore
Turner
Ethier

spnk said...

okay that's enough

Orel said...

Can you hear me now, Spank?

karen said...

SVS never even moved on that.

QuadSevens said...

That HR by Stanton was ridiculous!

Steve Sax said...

1-0 through 1.5

Steve Sax said...

Grandal with a single to leadoff the second

Steve Sax said...

bases loaded, no outs, and we can't score?

should have sent Grandal on the Bolsinger fly out

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers, five hits and no runs, through 2

karen said...

TIED!!!

Steve Sax said...

this is Howie do it! 1-1 tie

Steve Sax said...

1-1, mid-4

Steve Sax said...

@karen, you there? how's the weather?

Sunny right now, following some rain

karen said...

Saxy...I'm here but had to leave for a few minutes, how did we get the 2nd run?

Steve Sax said...

A-Gon HBP saves Rollins from scoring. Men at corners with one out

Steve Sax said...

@karen 8:26p: Ethier HR last inning

Steve Sax said...

Alex G, run-scoring double off the wall!

karen said...

Wow. I thought that was going out.

Steve Sax said...

damn, that ball was INCHES from the top of the wall and a three-run HR (instead of a one-run double)

Steve Sax said...

Gonzalez and Guerrero score off a Grandal single.

3G BABY

Steve Sax said...

we are hammering haren right now

Steve Sax said...

four straight hits for the Dodgers

karen said...

I kind of feel bad for Haren.

Steve Sax said...

SVS double, scoring Grandal. 6-1 LA

spnk said...

trade value going up for Ethier!

Geaux Dre!!

Steve Sax said...

inside pitch to Bolsinger, not cool

Steve Sax said...

Joc Pederson comes up, meaning the Dodgers have batted around this inning

Steve Sax said...

However, he Ks to end the inning, leaving two RISP

6-1

QuadSevens said...

Gordon and Haren have bad homecomings. I like this.

QuadSevens said...

Now Bolsinger almost loses his head on a line drive up the middle. They're out to get him!

karen said...

Yikes. Channel surfing a little...very serious Amtrak derailment in Philly. Looks pretty bad.

karen said...

Did Vinny just call Guerrero Alex Rodriguez?

QuadSevens said...

I missed that one Karen.

QuadSevens said...

Nice standing ovation for Bolsinger as he comes out. Paco in now.

QuadSevens said...

Paco with the K to strand 2. 6-1 Blue going to the bottom of the 6th.

karen said...

I know I'm old now when I see that Fernando is playing in the Oldtimers Game.

JRoll joins the hit parade.

karen said...

Marlins need the mercy rule. Boys have 8 runs and 16 hits at only 5 innings.

QuadSevens said...

Ethier having a monster day! Broken bat 2-RBI single.

Pride of Dong said...

Awkward when Kershaw Bobblehead has more run support than all Kershaw games all season...

QuadSevens said...

The sixth inning mercifully ends with the Dodgers scoring only 5 runs. 11-1 going to the 7th.

QuadSevens said...

Nobody scored in the 7th, but I updated my iPhone. Going to the bottom of the 8th.

QuadSevens said...

Ethier with a 5 hit game. Spanky might get his wish.

Paul said...

Better make sure Puig and Crawford have one good hamstring before we start talking trade.

spnk said...

Fuck Dre! i see a top notch starting arm coming the Dodgers way.

Paul said...

For Dre? No way. Better hope he goes 50 for 50.

karen said...

JP coming in to finish this off.

QuadSevens said...

Nice play on the comebacker by JP.

Paul said...

11-1 always reminds me of that Phillies collapse back in 19somethin drinkin.

QuadSevens said...

Dodgers keep the belt!

spnk said...

Dodgers went all Andre The Giant on the fish.

spnk said...

Stanton's spacebomb just crossed the Heliopause.
