Game 148 Thread: Sept 17 vs. Rox, 7p

Hiroki Kuroda (10-12, 3.32) vs. Ubaldo Jimenez (18-6, 2.75).

COMMENTS: With the upper rack of the NL West bunched together tighter than sphincters at a purity ball, the Gints, Pads and Rox are looking to take advantage any way they can. The slutty Dodgers have cooperated, giving it up to SD (3-0 against L.A. so far this month) and SF (4-2). (I hope they at least bought us a few drinks beforehand.) If the Rockies don't do some major scoring this weekend, it's their own damn fault!

How the hell is Pmek so high in the lineup?

Josh S. said...

Errot is shaking things up before handing the reins over to Ylgnittam.

Josh S. said...

Where's our lineup, skip?

Toireht sounds like toilet. HAR HAR

Neeebs said...

Batting 6th, CF...that's about right.

Josh S. said...

But Neeebs, you'll never be a Gold Glover. One too many Es.

THANK YOU!

Furcal-6
Theriot-4
Ethier-9
Loney-3
Gibbons-7

Ellis-2
Kuroda-1

rbnlaw said...

I just want to say that it's an honor to be leading off for this proud franchise.

Josh S. said...

C'mon, Greg! I posted the lineup already! What's your take on Lacruf, by the way?

Dusty Baker said...

Headed to the Yard soon. I'll try to take a pic from the home plate area and upload it if AT&T cooperates.

Josh S. said...

Have fun dry-humpin', Dusty!

Josh S. said...

(Not that anyone has earned a dry-hump lately.)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

RT @dylanohernandez: Tim Wallach said he would prefer being on Mattingly's staff to managing in triple A.

Wallach as the bench coach would keep Donnie on an even shorter leash.

Jason said...

I support Josh's lineup. Let Adoruk lead off and play short while Lacruf pitches and hits in that fabled "second leadoff spot" that AssuRal loves so much.

rbnlaw said...

Lecruf? Sacre bleu!!

Spanky said...

*sulks in the clubhouse*

rbnlaw said...

Following the press conference on DT anyone?

Spanky said...

Nah, I'll check out the highlights on the pre-game. Off to by booze. There is going to be a rowdy bench tonight.

rbnlaw said...

OK Spank, no drinking in the bullpen.

The locals always ask for leftovers.

Don Mattingly quote from the PC:
"I think maybe I sabotaged his second half ... our offense since the break. Sometimes you think you don't quite know what you're doing out there."

Now we know.

rbnlaw said...

so. . .
New manager next year. . .
so. . .

NicJ said...

MATTINGLEY IS AN IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I BET HE DOESN'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO MAKE A LINEUP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

















!

Spanky said...

DIE DIE DIE!!!!!!

Steve Sax said...

Padres already losing 8-3 to the Cards in the fourth. Nice of them to put up a fight here.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: have an awesome time tonight!!!

Spanky said...

P.Ditty still a no show. Got your lesson plan ready. Better sharpen that #2 cause your going back to grade school.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

Dusty Baker said...

In my seats now. I walked by Wide Eyes. You have no idea how small he is until you are right next to him. I could use him as floss.

Mr. Customer said...

Hey everybody!

Um. This could be going better.

karina said...

They can win this game!

Mr. Customer said...

I've decided that San Diego is on my shit list now. Which is convenient, because they're fookin' terrible.

Steve Sax said...

Kemp triple makes it 2-1...

karina said...

Ellis ties the game!

Spanky said...

Tied it up. WOW!

Dusty Baker said...

Mrs Dusty: that's funny that Ellis got a hit.

karina said...

quick poll:

does anyone misses Russell Martin? at some moments? at all?

Spanky said...

KKEMP got a triple? Well shut my mouth.

Spanky said...

@ Karina

Sorry kiddo. Not me. He means well though.

Spanky said...

@ Mr.C

Welcome to my world buddy.

FUCK THE PADRES!

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale y'all
We've got a tie game eh? This could be a very interesting evening.

karina said...

I really really want the Dodgers play for .500

Spanky said...

Ely's hair almost needs a washin' like Timmehs

Steve Sax said...

Wow, I can't believe we tied it.

Spanky said...

*pees in MLASF's Bigelow Tea*

MeanieBreanie said...

Here's our chance to score.
*sits next to Spanky on bench and pilfers his booze.

Steve Sax said...

Angels: 3 ges under .500 and already eliminated

Steve Sax said...

Padres losing 14-3 in the ninth

Giants losing 1-0 to the brewers at the phone

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

I miss '07 Russ more than '10 Russ.

Spanky said...

Personal Foul. Encroachment by MB on Spanky's beer. Half the distance to the tap line. First Down.

karina said...

@Mr C we can all agree in that, but I'm specifically asking about my son in 2010

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
After further review no foul was committed. You said booze, beer doesn't count. MB does not drink beer unless it is sheer desperation.

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

I say yes, but he's still got a lot of work to do to get back some of that early glory.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Sax - Thanks for the update
Pods getting butts kicked and Brewers up on Gints
GO BREWERS!
*sighs, wondering why it couldn't have been like this all season

Spanky said...

Delay of game.

Spanky said...

I don't trust Mattingly.

Mr. Customer said...

Beer Status - Belhaven Wee Heavy

MeanieBreanie said...

We are an apathetic bunch. No one said a thing about this latest score.

Spanky said...

I'm ready to ship Kuroda back to Japan for some shark fins.

karina said...

@Spanky after all the love Meanie gives you, can you share some of your booze/beer/whatever with her?

@Mr C I know he will :) he seems to care

Spanky said...

Fucking Kuroda

MeanieBreanie said...

Blogger seems to be acting buggy again...what gives?

karina said...

I hope this game is a slugfest

Dusty Baker said...

I can feel the hate and surliness from this thread all the way here at DS. Thanks - it's cold and the hate keeps me warm.

karina said...

a slugfest from both teams. Yes. I'm aware Ubaldo is pitching but they used to own him.

MeanieBreanie said...

DB, you are missed. Feel the love. With each run scored the rise in surliness is increasingly palpable.

Josh S. said...

Well, looks like I made the right choice going out with the family tonight.

Spanky said...

@ MB

Anything you want I'll give ya.

@ Karina

I'll give you a slug

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
I know you will baby. I love you too.

@Karina
New profession in life - couples counselor

Spanky said...

Don't strikeout now that I'm watching KKemp

MeanieBreanie said...

Weird, a comment I posted about 5 - 10 minutes ago just showed up. WTF?

Spanky said...

Eh! Fucking Kemp playing like an all-star now

Mr. Customer said...

Blogger is also surly

karina said...

ELLIS IS THE FUTURE OF THIS ORGANIZATION

Spanky said...

My shit seems fine and I gave my computer a shot-put the other day.

karina said...

Thanks, Spanky. By the way, how's Papa Spanky doing?

@Meaniebreanie you made me laugh!

karina said...

Close game, ladies and gents, winnable game!

MeanieBreanie said...

I agree with Karina. The opera's not over till the fat lady sings.

Spanky said...

Papa Spank is doing great. Unfortunately Papa and Mama and Brother and Sister Spank are driving me mad.

Spanky said...

I'll agree with the ladies about the game.

Damn, I'm whipped

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
Dysfunction junction. That is why they call it family.

karina said...

CarGo, get a hit ♥

MeanieBreanie said...

Spanky, we established long ago that you love to be whipped.

Spanky said...

I could not have fucking said it better myself MB.

karina said...

@Spanky that's a real family! I'm glad Papa Spanky is driving you mad, it means he's all right :)

karina said...

@Meaniebreanie @Spanky I was going to say it was impossible to resist to the combination of our charming ways.

MeanieBreanie said...

Come on blue, it's time for a few hits and runs.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karina@Spank - I look forward to the day we all meet. Karina by far has the biggest journey of all. Could there be another SoSG fest in the future?

Spanky said...

There has to be another SOSG Fest. I was not prepared for this years but i will for the next. Word of warning though I'm wilder (in a good way) in person than on the net.

Spanky said...

1 run down

karina said...

Close game again, boys and girls

MeanieBreanie said...

Yeah, we score!
@Spank, It strikes me that most of the people on this blog are the same way.

Spanky said...

Yah I really hold back and it's funny because I'll reread the comments and I ask myself did I say that, knowing I wanted to say worse.

Spanky said...

Can we not give up anymore runs for fucks sakes.

Spanky said...

What's up with P.Ditty, man. I've been smacking myself all week.

karina said...

I know I'm late, but I do want a future SoSG Fest that I can attend and meet all the snarkies I can.

MeanieBreanie said...

I think he is one to quietly watch from the sidelines.

karina said...

Kemp striking out? NO!

254 Ks and counting....

Spanky said...

Karina's new son going 3 for 3

karina said...

Another double for Ellis

ELLIS IS THE FUTURE OF THIS ORGANIZATION

Mr. Customer said...

That's a lot of whiffs.

karina said...

@Spanky he has to come a long way to become my son, I'm not easy :)

Spanky said...

*gives MB a hot foot in dugout*

MeanieBreanie said...

*MB ignores it cuz she knows you are trying to get the best of her.

Spanky said...

Fucking Vin! Don't tease me like that

Spanky said...

@ MB

Too many callouses on your foot to feel it is what I think

Spanky said...

Where's Waldo I mean Dusty?

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
1)You obviously don't know me as I go for regular mani/pedi's. No callouses here.
2) Dusty's at the game.

Spanky said...

It is a sad state of affairs when Brox is pitching the 7th

MeanieBreanie said...

The Dodgers are a sad state of affairs :(

Mr. Customer said...

You ain't lyin'

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr. C - glad you're here. It's been fairly quiet. I was afraid that we had run everyone else off.

Mr. Customer said...

God damn it, Brox! can we find you a pitch in the strike zone that won't get hit to Victorville?

Spanky said...

Broxton fucking SUCKS!

Mr. Customer said...

@MB

Science has proven that I am impossible to offend. Never you worry.

karina said...

*shakes head*

NicJ said...

blow this team up.

Mr. Customer said...

Son of a hurr.

MeanieBreanie said...

I'm not sure how much more of this I can take.

Spanky said...

Holy Shit! Replace Broxton with Sherrill

NONONONONONONONONONO

Spanky said...

Hells No! Unfuckingbelievable

Mr. Customer said...

@MB

At this point, I am really just watching slack-jawed as the train wreck unfolds in front of me.

MeanieBreanie said...

Just when you think you've seen the worst something gets added to the carnage.

NicJ said...

at least they scored some runs this time.

Mr. Customer said...

Good lord! Jay Payton is still around?

NicJ said...

at least we are screwing over the giants in the process.

Mr. Customer said...

Well, at least we don't have to play the Giants anymore. I hate padding their record.

Spanky said...

I want to give up watching the Dodgers this year, but what happened to me with Chick Hearn I have to ingest all the Vin I can get.

Neeebs said...

@MB:

I go for mani/pedis regularly too. But I'm only the bank. My 9yo can't afford her grownup habit.

Neeebs said...

Is it me, or does anyone else have a difficult time watching these guys. I mean...it's not even fun anymore.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Neeebs,
Too funny. Just wait, her grown up habits and tastes will increase in both size and expense.

Josh S. said...

Wooo! We chased Ubaldo!

Wait, what?

MeanieBreanie said...

This is hard to watch so why do we do it? Is it the hope of a better outcome or the fact that we are truly twisted, tortured souls?

Mr. Customer said...

Actually, if it weren't for y'all sharing my misery, I probably wouldn't put myself through it.

MeanieBreanie said...

OMG, we have Rancho Arrediendo (or whatever)

Neeebs said...

The pessimist in me says infield fly or strikeout

Spanky said...

Come on Blake You bearded bastard

Spanky said...

If we don't score Avatar change is in effect FUCK STUBBS

Spanky said...

Is this a strikeout too, Neeebs?

Spanky said...

RANCHO STRIKEOUTIENDO

Spanky said...

Right Here Kemp 3 and 0

karina said...

I stopped breathing

Mr. Customer said...

Crap.

MeanieBreanie said...

I cannot take this anymore. Goodnight all.

NicJ said...

well, at least we loaded the bases. That's something.

Spanky said...

Crowd slapping five at Dodger Stadium because of a Dodger FAIL.

FUCK!!!!!!!

Mr. Customer said...

What a strange world we've come to live in…

Neeebs said...

@Spanky:

I'll I can say is that I'm Roller, a High Roller baby.

Spanky said...

Like I've been saying, It truly is a sad,sad state of affairs.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Jay Payton is still around?

DAMMIT

Neeebs said...

Xanadu!!!!!!!!!!!

Spanky said...

I Quit-DESCENDENTS

Spanky said...

@ Neeebs

The Movie?

Josh S. said...

We are the NL West's stepstool. We help everybody up.

Well, almost everybody. Maybe next year, DBags.

Steve Sax said...

Bases loaded with one out back there in the seventh, and Beard Ks and Kemp grounds to short...it's just embarrassing.

Who is our hitting coach, anyway? Fire him!

Steve Sax said...

@Spanky 8:48p: there will be another SoSG Fest! Fear not...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

RT @dodgerthoughts: RT @DODGERSUSA: FYI: Due to contract between MLB & FOX, Dodgers -Rockies game tomorrow will on a tape delay.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I assume a "be" should be in there somewhere.

Spanky said...

Bean CarGo Tron!

karina said...

CarGo, get a hit!

I root so he will be the hitting champion of the NL

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WHY THE FUCK IS TRON STILL ON THE FUCKING TEAM AND HOW THE HELL IS HE PITCHING BEFORE FUCKING LINK?

Steve Sax said...

Man, our pitching is so fricking bad, it's pathetic

karina said...

Mr LASF: before you ask about Troncoso, why don't you ask about Sherrill?

Spanky said...

Here we go Peeps. 3 more outs till my last game. Wait, do we play the Madre's again.

Dusty Baker said...

Was that play at first safe or out? Looked safe to me from here. Either way I'm giving ump all sorts of shit.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't like anyone on this team anymore. It's just a matter of principle now.

Steve Sax said...

Has Theriot had a meaningful hit in September?

Spanky said...

Excuse my fuckedupiness,this is my last game unless we play the Madre's again.

Josh S. said...

So, they scheduled a Saturday day game, knowing full well FOX would black it out?

Who knew they'd end up doing us a favor?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Sax - Loaded question. Technically, nobody has had a meaningful hit all September.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Because the Costa Mesa Angels of Newport Beach of Aliso Viejo of Dana Point of Fountain Valley won, our loss will let us leapfrog them in the reverse standings. 13th overall pick, here we come!

Dusty Baker said...

What does One call 4 walks in one game by a batter?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Golden walking stick?

Dusty Baker said...

E's left ankle is bothering him

Dusty Baker said...

No takers on my safe or Out question?

Spanky said...

The last time I see Loney in a Dodger uniform. Good luck in Tejas.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nobody cares at this point.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker on the replay, it looked safe.

karina said...

Barba!

si se puede

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No, you fool! We want to lose! How do we suck at sucking?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hurry up, Texas Municipality Road. Close the game already.

Spanky said...

Lookit Torre giving props to Blake.

Just leave already you fuck!

NicJ said...

i feel like im being set up

NicJ said...

yup, sure was.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WE LOSE!!!

Mr. Customer said...

Holy fuck, Matt.

That pitch was closer to the strike zone in Anaheim.

Spanky said...

HaHa! My last image of the Dodgers 2010 season is a KKemp strikeout.

Joe Torre said...

take this job and shove it - David Allan Coe

Josh S. said...

SLIDER AWAY!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Suck it, Angels. 13th overall pick for us, none for you! Look at Astros, we're only a half-game ahead of you!

Josh S. said...

"Slide Away" - Oasis

Spanky said...

FUCK YOU STOOPID DODGERS!

I guess I go to bed now.

Thanks for your take!

Was anyone else freaked out that the picture for this post kinda looks like a burning cross?
