Game 47 Thread: May 29 @ Cardinals, 5p

Eh, he's no Zack Greinke.

Mike Bolsinger (3-0, 0.71) vs. John Lackey (2-3, 3.18).

Okay, Magic Mike. You've come out of nowhere to become the Dodgers' second-best starter, and for that we are grateful. But we fans always want more more more, and we note that your three wins came against the sub-.500 Marlins, Rockies and Padres.

In fact, with the exception of a certain club up north, no team has given the Dodgers a seriously hard time this season. That could change today, when the Dodgers roll into Busch (man, the stripper jokes just write themselves) to face the red-hot Cardinals (18-5 at home!).

And not only is this a battle of two first-place teams, but the Dodgers will face the Cards in 7 of their next 11 games. Help us, Magic Mike, you're our only hope.

Everyday there is a PRK at the top of the lineup.

Google needs me to identify drinks to verify my non-robotics. One thing I know is drinks!

Orel said...

Hey, DBT-2000!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

^Orel - I love it!

But I'll still click "I'm not a robot" for old times sakes.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

^is it "old time sakes" or "old times sake?" Grammar wasn't part of my initial programming...

Orel said...

I think "old times' sake." But then again a protocol droid like yourself should know that

karen said...

Ummmm.....Stripper Mike?? Can we take a cue from Major League and remove an article of clothing with each win?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Keep is classy Karen

karen said...

Who, me classy??? Surely you jest!

spnk said...

i'll take an article of clothing off with every Dodgers win. Dammit,i'm already nekked.

karen said...

Wouldn't it be special if Agon could nail Molina in his ugly mug with his backswing or a wicked foul ball between his eyes?

I'm not a vengeful, hateful person, just one with a long memory. #2013 #2014

karen said...

Nekked is good, Spanky, in fact we have all come to expect it as your special contribution to our little family here. However, I'm thinking you may need to go Delta Force tonight.....Yes I'm calling for the Rally Thong. Preferably the crusty one.

karen said...

Muttingly tossed. Eli running the team. Hey, maybe with the mutt out we just might pull this one out. AJellis also tossed, Barnes in.

spnk said...

i'm pulling out the rally thong. let's do this!

karen said...

BOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRIIIIIIIIIINNNG

karen said...

Do I have to remind the baseball gods once again that we are good, decent people. We help little old ladies safely cross the street, We always support the Girl Scout Cookie Drives, Most of us don't cheat on our taxes, We are not looking to be recruited by Isis and we are most assuredly not pedophiles or serial killers. (I'm fairy certain on the latter).

PLEASE take this into consideration. We truly are extraordinary fans and quite possibly finest human beings God saw fit to put on this green earth.

spnk said...

we suck against the Gnats and Chards. that's all there is to it. something needs to change. until then we are their bitches.

Orel said...
