Game 74 Thread: June 25 @ Cubs, 11:20a


I think it's fair to call Frias "seasoned" at this point.

Carlos Frias (4-5, 4.68) vs. Jon Lester (4-5, 3.80)

Remember all the Lester hubbub in the offseason? Could we have imagined that he'd have the exact same record as Carlos Frias on June 25? OK, so Lester has more than a slight edge in ERA, strikeouts, and probably every other stat you can think of, but WINS AND LOSSES, AM I RIGHT?

It's lunch baseball, kids, and you get a heaping helping of Curly Fries, whether you like it or not.

A rally banana in center, corpses at short and catcher and a DH playing 3rd. What could possibly go wrong?

Hideo Nomo said...

Hold the phone, Puig still has his stigmata:

Hernandez CF
Rollins SS
Turner 1B
Van Slyke RF
Kendrick 2B
Guerrero LF
Callaspo 3B
Ellis C
Frias P

Hope you don't mind solo shots, JT!

Pride of Dong said...

so now Curly Fires gets the "Kershaw Treatment" for run support?

Steve Sax said...

Son at the game again today! (not me)

Hideo Nomo said...

Not me either!

Steve Sax said...

rumor has it the Son at the game snagged an autograph already...

Steve Sax said...

(it's not Pedro Guerrero either)

Orel said...

Not me!

Orel said...

Hey, we're winning!

Six years ago today: Michael Jackson died while the Dodgers played a Thursday 11am game in Chicago.

Hideo Nomo said...

No way we hit 763 comments again, though.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

We're up 4-0? I didn't give us any kind of chance today with this crappy lineup facing Lester.

Orel said...

Patience, DBT. There's still time to blow this one.

Orel said...

I remember that, Gnomes! That was a gripping day.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I know that Orel, and I'm sure Curly Fries will find a way to throw it away.

But four runs is still commendable, and I'll focus on the positives while listening to the postgame dribble.

MR.F said...

Wasn't there a game we used to play where we'd click "publish comment" in a million times and see how many posts show up?

Jason said...

@Mr. F: Flo vs Deltalina?

Steve Sax said...

Hernandez should have had that one. Two RISP with one out in B5; Frias shaky

MR.F said...

I think I was a Deltalina-type. Flo's peppiness is a turn-off, though I do appreciate her helpful attitude.

Orel said...

Frias has been flirting with disaster but no runs allowed so far.

Orel said...

@MR.F: I remember -- it was some sort of game. Not Assassins' Circle

Orel said...

One Hundred Splendid Sons!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Still 4-0 btm heading to the bottom 6th

Orel said...

Peralta in. Sphincter puckered.

Orel said...

1-2-3 for Peralta. Wow!

MR.F said...

We should play some One Hundred Splendid Sons to crank up the comment count.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Cubs announcers praising Rollins' ABs over the past couple of days. They think he's starting to come around.

Steve Sax said...

That had better be a HR

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Turner with a... HR? or 3-bagger?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

If you're keeping score, Ethier is in at RF

Hideo Nomo said...

Yimi time. Hold on to your butts.

Orel said...

@MR. F: We'd have to call it A Dozen Splendid Sons

Dusty Baker said...

I'm holding on to AC's butt.

Dusty Baker said...

I remember interrupting Karina's kill shot in Assassin's Circle that time.

Orel said...

Can Kenley get the non-save save?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Orel - Not if Donnie can help it!

Hideo Nomo said...

Dodgers win! A dumb-ass banana joke is on the verge of becoming our biggest tweet ever!

Orel said...

By faves and RTs, yes, but not by Twitter's "impressions" and "engagements" metrics. The Zackshop still reigns supreme in that regard

Hideo Nomo said...

Woot.

Fred's Brim said...

WOOP

But what was Kenley doing in there for the 3rd day in a row?
