Game 28 Thread: April 30 vs. Pads, 7p

Hiroki Kuroda (3-2. 3.21) vs. Tim Stauffer (0-1, 3.21).

Kuroda against the Boys from Pipco — I mean Petco — seems like a good combination to me. What's even better is when players other than Kemp and Ethier show up at the plate. Hey, even the bridesmaids of the batting order have to contribute. And while Broxton may be the butt of Dodger fans' ire right now, expect to see him in a save situation. Those are the key players for the Dodgers; let's hope they don't get upstaged by the Padres tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm just now seeing these adverts whose story line is going inside Brian Wilson's beard. That is just fucking wrong.

(showers)

Spank said...

Susan Boyle is hotter than Kate.

MR.F said...

Damn, Sax. =(

Damn, Spank. =/

Steve Sax said...

According to Deaspin, we've got an armless guy throwing out the first pitch tonight?

Broxton should still be worried.

Steve Sax said...

@Mr F 4:30p: If Pippa frequented SoSG, I assume you would have written:

"Super hot... for a commenter."

Paul said...

Loney, homerun, book it.

Paul said...

I am 10% correct in my dodger homerun predictions and 90% correct in my Pat Burrell homerun predictions....

Mr. Customer said...

@Mr. F

Predisposition towards hotness is not a trait I typically associate with european aristocracy. Commoners at least have a fighting chance.

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck the commoners.

In this case, I mean it literally.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey I don't want to just sit around bitching about badges.

But I will.

What is the story on how long it takes to post? I should have a JD Drew double badge (I wasn't even faking - I had it open in a browser tab and was following wen it happened), but didn't get credit. I did, however, get credit for a Chris Getz single when I was browsing for Pippa Middleton picture or two. What gives?

Dusty Baker said...

If anyone disrespects this no-arm dude throwing out the first pitch, I'm going to rip your arms off.

Paul said...

Ahhhh fucking commoners.

Mr. Customer said...

I didn't get the Drew V… I mean badge either.

Paul said...

Is there a Derek Lowe bender badge?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Luke Wilson's throwing out the first pitch?

Josh S. said...

YES! Lucas says "Dosh!" when I show him Dodgers gear!

I hope I can get a video, but he tries to take my phone every time I shoot with it.

Paul said...

True story guys, Giants suck.

Mr. Customer said...

Actually, having SoSG drinking badges is one hell of an idea.

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Paul said...

Hey that is how I say Dodgers after a night at the bar!!

Hope you get the video Josh.

Josh S. said...

Correction: "Doshish." I wasn't hearing the second syllable at first.

Dusty Baker said...

Oh hell yeah, Mr. C.

Neeebs would suggest a Pisco badge. I a Colt 45 badge. Steel Reserve, of course. Hendrick's Gin for Mr. C. Oban in the house. etc etc

cc: SosG IT team

Dusty Baker said...

Cheers to the wee lad, Josh!

Paul said...

Two syllables? Oh well the kid is beyond my comprehension when I am deep in Irish Catholic whiskey

Josh S. said...

Luke shares a lot of characteristics with people leaving a bar: the stumbling, the drool, the soiled undergarments.

Paul said...

Who thought of the idea to put a sticky note on bud light bottles? And please tell me they didn't get paid for that idea.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Luke's still more coherent than Nick Nolte.

Dusty Baker said...

Sounds like my prom night, Josh. And man was I mad at her.

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty Baker: not the pride of Princeton

Mr. Customer said...

Nice start

Paul said...

Papelbon and Swisher? My TV just exploded from the high D bag factor.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

More Aaron Miles leadoff goodness!

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

*Remember the good old days of crappy product placement at DS*

karina said...

Epale everyone!

you've all got your wits high tonight, I can't keep up but I'll enjoy :)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Four pitches, three outs.

Dusty Baker said...

Epale, K!

Yes, we are high tonight. Or something like that.

Paul said...

Hola Karen!

Come on Bison!

Paul said...

Piss on it Urine!

Paul said...

I'll consider that a homerun for Loney.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck you, Brad Hawpe.

Dusty Baker said...

Holy SHIT! Venebles' dad play baseball? WOW!

Dusty Baker said...

Shave that shit off yer face, Hawpe. Almost as lame as a David Arquette do.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Rox beat 'Rates.

Dusty Baker said...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Pod Rays have more LHWGs than we do.

rbnlaw said...

Namaste, Mother effers.

I read that in a book.

Now back to this one.

MR.F said...

She's quite hot! I just wanted to add the commoner joke.

rbnlaw said...

Wow, O-dog sucks this year, don't he.
.238?

Dusty Baker said...

Whattup, RBN?

Surly status: mild

Beer status: Sam Adam Noble Pils

Future booze status: gin/tonic

karina said...

was watching the game on tv,but directv lost the signal :(

Dusty Baker said...

Watch through us, Karina. Watch through us.

Dusty Baker said...

Got 'em! Sittdown and quit talkin', O Dog.

Well, I guess I can expect that to be half possible.

rbnlaw said...

Nervy bit of pitching there, Hiro!

Dusty Baker said...

There goes my Hiro!

rbnlaw said...

DB,
Gotta grab some of that Noble Pils.

Beer status: Sam Adams BL.

Looking for gin.

Dusty Baker said...

@RBN

If you have a gin witching stick, it would surely point you to my liquor cabinet. I believe I have the market cornered, like the old geezers with orange juice futures in TRADING PLACES.

Dusty Baker said...

DRE DAY!

MR.F said...

Dre Day!!

rbnlaw said...

Spank said...

dre day

Dusty Baker said...

"Keep streak alive!"

-Jesse Jackson

rbnlaw said...

Wondered why I was drawn to the northwest, DB.

Spank said...

I'm actually interested for Urine's at bat.

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho Uriendo!

Dusty Baker said...

JLo!

(takes run)


(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

No GIDP! Damn, I wanted that JLo badge.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Tarjetas!

Paul said...

Deck of Cards is due for a bomb.

Dusty Baker said...

He definitely bombed.

Paul said...

Dammit!!!

rbnlaw said...

We are officially Ethier, Kemp, and 6 other guys who couldn't hit water if they fell out of a fucking canoe.


To quote Tommy.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn. No one in the Yard tonight. So sad.

I'll be there tomorrow. Anyone else?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

To be fair, Uribe's been hitting well lately.

Spank said...

Fuck,had him. Good catch Dre

Dusty Baker said...

GOD DAMMIT!

Great play, Dre.

Josh S. said...

Nice try, Dre.

Dusty Baker said...

SonofashitOreldoesn'tlikemetotype.

Spank said...

Damm Dre. Showing some D

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hooray for 'Dre!

karina said...

I don't want to earn badges when they happen against the Dodgers :(

Dusty Baker said...

@karina

I know. I hate having that Ludwick badge now.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I hate you so much, Miles.

Dusty Baker said...

Jon Heyman: UNFOLLOW

Can't take it any more. Let me know if I miss anything.

Dusty Baker said...

Follow this.

Paul said...

I usually do my scratchin late.

Spank said...

If Sands does not get a hit in this game and makes the start tomorrow,The Game Thread will feel my fucking wrath. That is a guarantee.

Dusty Baker said...

Sands' grandfather wearing an Ebbitts Field t-shirt at the Yard tonight. Strong!

He also has a Duke Snider model little league glove that he's had since childhood.

(cries)

Spank said...

Fuck Sands

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck me!

I'm also pissed about our inability to score runs.

karina said...

the fact that Jerry Sands is probably a third generation Dodgers fan make me to support him in the good and the bad

Dusty Baker said...

Runners get no love these days. Days of tie goes to runner are over, except on the sandlot.

Kempin' ain't easy.

Paul said...

My grandpa had a shotgun that he had since he was little....

MR.F said...

Kemp was safe!

Paul said...

Just glad Kemp didn't get thrown out. We cant afford that.

Josh S. said...

On the replay, Kemp stared at the ball for a bit before running. Had he run on contact, he'd have been safe all the way.

Can't really rag on him, though. That carom off the leg was stare-worthy.

Spank said...

@ Karina

I have a long speech ready to publish in tomorrows GT on Sands on why we keep putting him out there. Your comment just added another couple paragraphs.

Dusty Baker said...

Uh-oh. Spanky is working on a manifesto.

#Unabomber

Paul said...

We should put Loney in left field!!

Dusty Baker said...

Urination.

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

Of another team.

Paul said...

A Spankofesto?

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

That is the story of my junior high days.

Dusty Baker said...

I got a Wide Eyes badge. He is 0-2. And was just HBP. I'll take it, but...what gives?

karina said...

@Spank looking forward to read it!

@Dusty Baker he's a Dodger Blue King,ok?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Ok.

Dusty Baker said...

Tony Gwynn is like the anti-MSB.

MR.F said...

TGJ!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Just Gwynn, baby!

Paul said...

Nice slide but still not sure why we had the bat boy as a pinch runner.

Dusty Baker said...

Mrs Dusty-in-law: Is Russ Mitchell faster than Rod Barajas?

Dusty: [has no answer]

Spank said...

Hey! We scored.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I hate you, Aaron Miles, I hate you!

(cries)

Paul said...

You know this means we are going 12 innings plus.

So I will start drinking in the 12th.


someone proposed again. Job security.

Paul said...

Damn you Guiierreerrrrrrr!

Josh S. said...

No one likes you Aaron Miles!

My wife thinks you're too short to play baseball!

Paul said...

I was hoping Gwynn was going to be out there.

Spank said...

He wasn't even fucking close to the ball.

Spank said...

hedley

Paul said...

Miles is no Pedroia

Josh S. said...

Shitsticks.

Spank said...

Stupid.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Balls.

Paul said...

I underestimated the Padres ability to realize our bullpen sucks.

Spank said...

Something bad is about to happen.

Spank said...

What did i say.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Aw dammit.

Spank said...

If that was a tamale,Navarro would not had dropped it.

MR.F said...

That was not a good inning...

NicJ said...

Can we trade Dioner back to TB?

Paul said...

Let's see if Sands was worth taking up space in the outfield that inning.

Steve Sax said...

Dude, how can Jamey Carroll be batting close to .300? Where are the hits?!

Spank said...

Fuck Sands

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

We'll get 'em tomorrow.

Paul said...

Come on Kempster.

Spank said...

Geez,Right down the middle. How do you not swing at that?

NicJ said...

.500 here we come!

NicJ said...

Ball three was a strike.

Mr. Customer said...

*consults the liquor cabinet*

MR.F said...

We have 3 outs.

(cries)

karina said...

I hate MSTI

Josh S. said...

Alright Dodgers, get this shit over with so I can watch Doctir Who.

karina said...

I'm daydreaming about a walk-off, anyone else?

Josh S. said...

Here comes Taco's personal season highlight.

Spank said...

We got this!

(cries)

Josh S. said...

Or Doctor Who. That too.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Yeah, Dodgers, Josh needs his Mark Sheppard fix.

Dusty Baker said...

Can we just look at Pippa's arse and forget about this game?

Dusty Baker said...

Insta-Poll:

a) We suck

b) We blow

Spank said...

Booooooooooooo!

Dusty Baker said...

Outside of two players, we are a triple A team.

Good night everybody.

karina said...

*sighs*

night Dusty, night everyone.

Spank said...

I picked the wrong night not to booze. Later peeps.

MR.F said...

Good night Dusty and Karina.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Good night, moon.

rbnlaw said...

Night.

Josh S. said...

What the eff, Doctor Who? WHAT. THE. EFF.

MR.F said...

Pippa has a really stellar figure.
