Open Game Thread: 7/1 Phillies vs. Blue Jays
Posted by Danger Guerrero at 12:37 pm ET 30 Comments

PITCHING MATCHUP:

Kyle Kendrick (4-4) 3.23 ERA

Phillies: Every time Kendrick pitches it makes me sad. So instead of posting a picture of him, I decided to upload this GIF of the Turk Dance. (Related: Click here for LOLs.) You are welcome for the in-depth baseball analysis.


Ricky Romero (7-7) 2.74 ERA

Blue Jays: A Blue Jay is a stupid mascot. “Oo, I’m a dumb bird and I fly around and eat worms and stuff.” Pfft, weak. If I owned the Blue Jays I’d change the name to something badass like “The Toronto Razorsharks,” or I’d move the team to Maui and name it “The Active Volcanoes,” because I’ve seen Dante’s Peak and volcanoes are terrifying. What I’m getting at is this: get your shit together, Toronto.

  1. The best thing about Toronto is their stadium. There’s a hotel in centerfield instead of seats.

  2. As Well says:

    Well, if any of the Jays players commit an error today in these uniforms, you can just say this.

    Why do so many football players “do the dougie” after they score when the turk dance is clearly a million times better?

  4. Paul says:

    there is no dance greater than the dougie

  5. ChutleyJRollButtslap says:

    I’m glad Kyle Kendrick is so good at baseball.

  6. Plaaaccciiiiddddoooo says:

    and Valdez works the count for a walk for no reason. just to have jimmy pop up on the 1st pitch

  7. DanB says:

    T-Mac is a mathematician, apparently

  8. Plaaaccciiiiddddoooo says:

    I think Jimmy is the one thats fuckin up the team. When he doesn’t play the team hits and scores runs.

  9. DanB says:

    Pizza Pizza must be the most popular shit in Canada, anytime I watch a sporting event located in Canada, I see their advertisements.

    • SquirrelBoy says:

      To clarify Jupiter’s statement, for a time in the 1940′s the Phillies were unofficially known as the Blue Jays though the official name remained the Phillies.

    • Chucko says:

      How were they able to have two names? How can they unofficially be called the Blue Jays and officially be called the Phillies? How does that work? Sorry, it just confuses me.

    • Double LoL says:

      Maybe some jack-ass had a blog in 1940 but didn’t have the express written consent of Major League Baseball so he had to use an ‘unofficial name’ instead of the ‘official’ registered trademarked name so as not to be sued/ [sic]

  10. nickjames says:

    Maybe Shane should be the hitting coach.

  11. nickjames says:

    Wheels called that…

  12. Grounder to Short says:

    I can’t believe this. Everybody in the stadium knew Bautista was going to try to go deep on the 1st pitch, and Kendrick still threw it right down the middle. That’s just unacceptable

  13. Bud says:

    Cmon big piece…cant leave work until this is done

  14. Gene Schall says:

    Ugh. What a game. I need some nitro pills.

  15. feelslike08 says:

    This feels like the Phils of old, comin up with big hits late to come back and “probably” win it.

  16. Gene Schall says:

    And I hope Bautista enjoys pimping his HR now that it’s meaningless.

  17. Gene Schall says:

    Oh look, a Polock!

  18. Talking Chop says:

    OMG!!!!!!! How come the Phillies never LOSE??????? It’s just not FAIR!!!! They have a horeshoe crammed up their asses, it’s just not FAIR!!!!! FML!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Hopper says:

    We can all agree on this, right?

    Anna Kendrick’s performance in Toronto (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) >> Kyle Kendrick’s performance in Toronto (7.0 IP 8 H 6 ER 1 BB 5 K 2HR)

  20. Plaaaccciiiiddddoooo says:

    4 names that the philles should think of getting in the future Andrew McCutchen Matt Kemp Adam Jones and Justin Upton, whenever those guys are free.
