Game 12 Thread: April 16 vs. Giants, 6p

Let's hope that's Kazmir on the right.

Scott Kazmir (1-0, 5.40) vs. Johhny Cueto (2-0, 5.40).

When we last saw these "number two" (and I use that loosely, as well as metaphorically) starters square off, both had ERAs around 1.00. Since they both allowed six earned runs last weekend, we're now looking at ERAs loser to 5.00. The Dodgers have since found their footing in a series at home vs. Arizona, while the Giants lost theirs in Colorado.

The mlb.com preview indicates that Chase Utley is 11-for-27 lifetime against Cueto. We haven't seen Utley for two games, however, so they'd better make sure the driver pulls by the retirement home on the way to the Stadium, if Dave Roberts wants to use Utley. UPDATE: holy Bengay, Utley is indeed confirmed as leadoff hitter today.

Round 2, boys and girls. Who's got the shoryuken tonight?

Snap poll:

Kazmir a) sucks b) blows or c) both?

karen said...

Dave Roberts has the same look on his face that Robert Kardashian had when OJ was found 'not guilty'.

karen said...

@Dust

d) and swallows

Dusty Baker said...

I can't believe I left off that choice. Good point, Karen!

And nice OJ metaphor.

Dusty Baker said...

Already at 21 pitches. At least we won't have to see this asshole very much longer today.

karen said...

I was just thinking 'is it me or have these idiots been up forever?'

Dusty Baker said...

I feel sorry for my season ticket mate who has our tickets tonight. Gonna be a shitty one.

Usually when Vin starts out with 'If your old enough to remember...' I'm still young and exhale the proverbial sigh of relief...this time I remember.

Crap I'm old.

karen said...

Vin is just too good and by good I mean honorably good. Speaking of Diablo Pagan he said that before injuries he was 'a brilliant center fielder'. How in the world could ANYONE find ANYTHING nice to say about Diablo. Fucking. Pagan.???

karen said...

...and now he's quoting Dr. Seuss.

What more could we ever ask for??

Dusty Baker said...

He also said after the first inning that Kazmir hadn't been bad. I'm all for accentuating the positive, but we all know how this story ends, right?

Dusty Baker said...

NO HITTER GOING ON AFTER FOUR

karen said...

See what I mean. The man is a freaking saint.

...and oh, yeah, I think we've seen this story before.

I just drove back from gnats territory and I'm spittin' mad--so business as usual. I did get to hear that homerun call as I pulled in. Side note: my gawd does Charlie Steiner suck.

spank said...

SACK UP,DOYERS. YOU FUCKS.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Grandal with a double! Let's do this!
