And now a preview to our pitching matchup of the night

May 30, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

Yup, there it is. Quite the starting pitching matchup. Mmmhmm:


I may say something about this in ATH tomorrow morning. Just so you know.

Don’t look at me like that. If you don’t know that I’m that immature by now, you haven’t been reading long.

    “Lee vs. Gee” is a more enticing pitching match-up.

    • IdahoMariner - May 30, 2012 at 5:44 PM

      Aside from knowing better than to read the comments (I had three older brothers, I have had a lifetimes’ worth of every conceivable penis joke, you boys have fun)….

      the manager’s had to have planned this, right? Because, you know, you all are 12-year-olds when it comes to this sort of thing, I can’t imagine the managers can resist either.

        Sorry, Mariner, but you missed a perfect moment to make with the “Furbush” v Fister” matchup. C’mon, you laughed, I know it.

    I wonder who will go longer in the game? Hopefully one doesn’t stiffen up or they might not be able to go as long. I could keep going but won’t haha

      Wang will probably be pulled first.

    • Jonny 5 - May 30, 2012 at 2:43 PM

      Johnson really knows how to pound the zone methodically.

    • 18thstreet - May 30, 2012 at 4:11 PM

      Best to stay away from the high hard ones.

  3. WhenMattStairsIsKing - May 30, 2012 at 1:43 PM

    I think Johnson will beat Wang with his ball delivery.

  4. itsacurse - May 30, 2012 at 1:48 PM

    What about R.A. Dickey vs. Phil Penis?

  5. contraryguy - May 30, 2012 at 1:49 PM

    Wang and Johnson have nothing on Fister.

    • butchhuskey - May 30, 2012 at 1:57 PM

      If the A’s are playing the Tigers, the joke is that you “Fister, Recker, and Parker outside”

      • contraryguy - May 30, 2012 at 2:10 PM

        Better (or worse) yet… Fister / Furbush.

        Won’t happen unless Charlie becomes a starter, but the possibility is out there.

    • pmcenroe - May 30, 2012 at 2:51 PM

      Fister? I hardly know her

  6. amhendrick - May 30, 2012 at 2:01 PM

    If the game last longer than 4 hours, call your doctor.

  7. elmaquino - May 30, 2012 at 2:02 PM

    Also: Charlie Furbush, Dick Pole, Johnny Dickshot, Dick Bliss, Pete LaCock, Dick Cherry, Cum Posey, Siemen Korff, Clarence Licklider, Dick Combs, Louis Blows, Yank Terry and Lance Woodcock. All real.

    • 18thstreet - May 30, 2012 at 2:06 PM

      Danny Cox.

    • pmcenroe - May 30, 2012 at 2:52 PM

      don’t forget Jack Glasscock

  8. hudsonjc - May 30, 2012 at 2:04 PM

    Can’t wait to see this “head to head” match up!

  9. thewrongalex - May 30, 2012 at 2:06 PM

    Heard that this game is actually blacked out in North Carolina.

  10. number42is1 - May 30, 2012 at 2:10 PM

    Wonder who’s gonna choke first

  11. diehardcubbiefan4life - May 30, 2012 at 2:18 PM

    I see what you did there…

  12. AJ - May 30, 2012 at 2:34 PM

    Rusty Kuntz could not be reached for comment at press time.

  13. biasedhomer - May 30, 2012 at 2:38 PM

    Cant wait for Wang vs Dickey

  14. southpaw2k - May 30, 2012 at 3:38 PM

    If they both get knocked out early, would that be premature ejections?

  15. braddavery - May 30, 2012 at 3:39 PM

    When is the Dan Twignberries vs Todd Cocknballs matchup?

  16. Tim OShenko - May 30, 2012 at 4:04 PM

    And here I was just thinking about how most of Craig’s posts could be described as vaginal, which really bothers some men. The word itself makes some men uncomfortable. Vagina.

    They don’t like hearing it and have difficulty saying it, yet without batting an eye, they’ll refer to their Wang, or Johnson.

    • braddavery - May 30, 2012 at 6:38 PM


    • IdahoMariner - May 30, 2012 at 6:42 PM

      I am still trying to figure out how craig’s posts could be described as vaginal….wait. I really, really don’t want to know. Stay classy, and keep using female body parts as insults. Correlation does not equal causation, but if youa re having trouble getting dates, I would look into your language. Not saying you are having trouble, just saying, not classy. Seethes with hostility, actually.

      • Craig Calcaterra - May 30, 2012 at 7:58 PM

        Mainer: that was actually a Big Lebowski reference. Extended quote, actually. I didn’t take it as hostile at all. If it was meant to be it was a bad attempt, at least.

      • Tim OShenko - May 30, 2012 at 11:40 PM

        What Craig said. At any rate, sorry to have offended, Mariner. I’ll try and keep it PG from here on out, just to be on the safe side.

  17. Old Gator - May 30, 2012 at 5:06 PM

    Oh, I’m sorry – I seemed to have stumbled into the locker room….where are they selling the wieners and buns?
