STGT: March 18 @ Giants, 1p

Matt Kemp grimaces approvingly after hitting his third home run of spring training in yesterday's 6-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

The Dodgers are on a winning streak! That's right, they've won two in a row. And more help could be on the way. Hell, we're ready to start the season today!

As with yesterday, feel free to co-opt this Game Thread for all your March Madness-related needs. My bracket has already been blown to smithereens, but I'm still loving this annual overdose of upsets and buzzer-beaters.

Oh, and in case you still need cause for distraction:

Another example of how horizontal stripes make everything look wider.

I like distractions.

Josh S. said...

We done scored!

Though, two singles, a force-out, and a sac fly is no way to beat up on Jeff Suppan.

Josh S. said...

Man, I really hope Gameday will stop being so terrible by the time the season rolls around.

Josh S. said...

Suppan faced 6 batters and threw 6 pitches.

Nutty.

Josh S. said...

Seriously, we're in the third and he hasn't thrown a second pitch to a single batter.

Are they punking him?

Josh S. said...

OK, finally he throws more than one pitch and Dre whiffs on all three.

Josh S. said...

We done scored again!

Josh S. said...

They definitely need to keep Suppan.

Somehow Kemp's seen my wiener?

Hot damn there's been some great finishes in this NCAA tourney so far, as usual. This Arizona-Memphis match-up is coming down to the wire. Love this time of year.

Josh S. said...

Whew! Arizona losing would have really boned my bracket.

Now back to "First Pitch Swingin' Day," live from Scottsdale.

Josh S. said...

Thanks for fucking up Rubby's stellar start, Hawksworth!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

So far my West bracket is perfect.

Josh S. said...

Velez homered! Roids!!!!

Josh S. said...

Holy crap, I picked all four 11 seeds over the 6 seeds? It paid off once. I doubt it works two more times.

Josh S. said...

Hold on, Velez didn't do shit, but Gimenez AND XPaul homered.

Gameday is all kinds of fucked up.

6-3 Dodgers leading with two out in the bottom of the ninth

Steve Sax said...

It's done! Dodgers improve to 8-15 (sigh)

Josh S. said...

2-0 with the boob pic.

Just sayin'.

Steve Sax said...

Damn skippy that boob pic is coming back tomorrow.

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax
