STGT: vs. Brewers, 1p

GA and Matt Kemp in the dugout before yesterday's game.


Andre Ethier flashes the form that made him a St. Mary's legend.


James Loney fields a sticky wicket. (Yes, it's an inexact analogy.)


Kuroda lookin' badass.

From Dodgers.com:

While pitching staff candidates Ramon Ortiz and Josh Towers continue their tryouts for the Dodgers on Thursday at 1:05 p.m. PT on MLB.TV against the Brewers at Camelback Ranch-Glendale, attention will be diverted to a Minor League game against Texas in Surprise, where catcher Russell Martin will see his first game action since suffering a pulled groin muscle March 6. Martin was expected to miss four to six weeks, but he's vowed to be ready for Opening Day.

Jason said...

Ethier has a nice 4-seam fastball grip there.

Today will be a success if J-Mart doesn't pull a Nomar and collapse in the batter's box with an exploded groin.

Josh S. said...

So, Martin is getting Closser to returning?

koufax said...

looks like padilla is the opening day starter per tony jackson and kershaw will get the home opener.

Steve Sax said...

Game underway...leadoff single for Weeks, off the glove of Casey Blake.

Josh S. said...

I wonder when we'll face the Wolf.

Steve Sax said...

we are already in trouble. stolen base, double--we're down 1-0.

Towers looks like he's leaning a bit.

Steve Sax said...

Towers looks Faulty.

Steve Sax said...

Towers finally stands tall, gets out of the inning. 1-0 Brewers after 1/2 an inning.

Dusty Baker said...

Towers look shakier than John Towers on a Monday morning.

Steve Sax said...

Furkey with a leadoff double! Niiiiiice!

Steve Sax said...

Kemp smokes a single, men at the corners with none out. Suppan on the mound for MIL.

Josh S. said...

Steiner, maybe tell us what's happening, other than just saying "OOHP!"

Steve Sax said...

argh, my ipod went down...came back just in time to hear Suppan throw it away, Furcal score, and Charley screw up the call again (it's TIED at 1, Charley, not a 1-0 lead for the Dodgers).

Steve Sax said...

Kemp scores on a Sac Fly. 2-1 Dodgers

Steve Sax said...

Josh S: i agree. Charley is calling the game on radio not only as if we were watching it on TV, but also if someone else more thorough and adept were calling the game along with him.

Steve Sax said...

Maybe I'll switch over to Uecker.

Josh S. said...

Not a bad idea. And Uecker's partner isn't too bad either. He made some good Sandoval fat jokes a couple weeks ago.

Steve Sax said...

Fielder robs Anderson of a double, so it's 2-1 Dodgers at the end of 1.

If anyone is watching this game, go ahead and comment too because I can't tell what the hell is going on based on Charley's horrible calls.

Steve Sax said...

Josh S, how old is your little one now? Cute pic.

Josh S. said...

He'll be 7 months on Saturday.

He's HYOOOGE.

Josh S. said...

"At the end of 1, Dodgers come away with a couple of runs, a couple of hits, and an error."

WTF Charley? Uecker it is.

Oh, it's not Uecker's inning.

Josh S. said...

Towers sears the Brewers, 1-2-3.

Steve Sax said...

boy, an efficient calling of the game over on MIL's WTMJ. At least I can tell what is going on...

2-1 Dodgers after 1.5 innings.

Steve Sax said...

towers sears, nice

Josh S. said...

I don't know who the drunk-sounding guy in the booth with Cory Provus today.

Josh S. said...

There's a missing "is" in there.

Josh S. said...

Nice. A Dodgers injury update from the Brewers announce team.

Can we play the Brewers every day?

Josh S. said...

We're using the DH, but the Brewers aren't. Weird.

Jason said...

That Towers, he's a real piece a' work. Buh-da-dum-dum!

Steve Sax said...

I hope we can pick and choose when to use the DH during the regular season, too.

Or, like the NFL, is that only a postseason rule?

Josh S. said...

Provus just said Bills was our game 1 starter against the Cubs in 2008.

Derek Lowe has been erased from history...







...just like I planned.

Josh S. said...

Wrestlemania schtick!

Can we hire Cory Provus? Please?

Josh S. said...

FJL ties it back up with a double!

Josh S. said...

5 straight hits off Parra. 5-3 Dodgers.

Alex Cora said...

Seriously, Monday just said that Craig Counsell has a "NOSE for the ball." Really!?! That's just wrong.

Alex Cora said...

Sweet DP by james loney. Steiner went ape shit.

Alex Cora said...

Hey, where did my previous comment go?

Josh S. said...

AC, comments are screwy. Most likely due to me and Neeebs (and everyone else playing March Madness) refreshing the site so much.

Alex Cora said...

Dodgers win! Dodgers win!!!

Josh S. said...

Spoilers! At Bat is waaaaaay behind again.

OK, now it's done.

Steve Sax said...

Hey, the Dodgers won!

Dusty Baker said...

Did we win?
