Post-Game 3 Thread: Shot in the Heart, and You're to Blame; You Give the Letter K a Bad Name

GIANTS 10, DODGERS 0

Clayton Kershaw: DNP. Matt Kemp: 1-for-3, double. Kenley Jansen: 1.0 IP, 4R, all earned. Welcome back to earth, Kenley. Too bad you had to do it against the Giants, but now you can work on lowering that 36.00 ERA.

Ted Lilly started the game by giving up four runs of his own (over 4 2/3 innings). Matt Cain, formerly Dodger bait, is no longer scared of us. He scattered five hits over six innings, striking out three.

In happier news, Andre Ethier says hi. He went 3-for-4, and Jamey Carroll went 2-for-4. Oh, and by the way: Russell Martin hit a three-run home run for the Yankees today.

"Hi from New York!"

Sax's note (11:37p): One more update: Adrian Beltre hit his ninth career grand slam tonight to help the Rangers beat the Red Sox, 12-5.

Dusty Baker said...

And I for one understand every word he says.

Jimbo said...

This Jimbo is disappointed in the outcome of today's game.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK JIMBO IN THE ARMPIT.

So much for wire to wire...

We got thoroughly depantsed.

Dusty Baker said...

They handed out these foam fingers today to all who entered. They were an advert for Little Fokkers. Featured index and middle fingers pointing so you could do the whole "i'm watching you" thing. After the wretched game, I walked to the car with the foam finger on but the index finger pulled down, with just the middle finger extended. Pointed it at gloating Gnats fans several times. I felt better.

I thought the dodgers were just trying to aim low for the year

WE'RE NUMBER 2!!!

Too Drunk To Fuck-Dead Kennedys

Jason said...

This day of "losing" confuses and infuriates this former Jumbo!

Jason said...

^ Jimbo. Damn you, auto-correct!

Dusty Baker said...

Damn you, Jimbo!

Paul said...

Alright bring out the Jumbos!!

Dusty Baker said...

K is for Kate who was struck with an axe.

Josh S. said...

Donnie B needs to be running the top (or as close to top as we have) guys out there every day. Why are Furcal and Barajas resting today when there's an off day on Monday? (I know...day after night. But it's the third game!)

Other than that, I have no beef. He's doing a pretty good job managing so far.

Paul said...

Yeah wasn't sure you make it a rest day when we already have back ups in the lineup cause of injuries.

If Furcal and Barajas go 6 for 8 tomorrow I will understand.

Dusty Baker said...

the rest day shit is shit god damn, i have been to two games out of three - i didn't demand to have a rest day. wtf? it's april god damned second. how tired can they be?

Paul said...

I had a rest day yesterday but not much more productive today unless production is measured in drinks and buring coyote carcasses.

Dusty Baker said...

wait, you burned coyotes today and didn't invite me?

Dusty Baker said...

misread your typo. let me re-phrase that:

wait, you buried coyotes today and didn't invite me?

Paul said...

Just warming up Dusty.

Dusty Baker said...

Bottom line: whether you are burning or burying coyotes, I would appreciate an invitation in the future.

End of thread.

Dusty Baker said...

My god, stop the presses. I just saw a relevant ad banner on SoSG after all these years. It's advertising Lakers v Nuggets. Whoa!

Dusty Baker said...

Beer status: Jack Daniel's on the rocks. Just gettin' started.

Paul said...

Noted.

Just dont tell Mr. C. He is a notorious coyote sympathizer.

Paul said...

Finished up my Zin.

I need a break so i am going with Asahi. A great palate clenser.

Dusty Baker said...

Crisp Asian lagers are incredibly good palate cleansers. Singha is excellent in this respect, too.

Spank said...

I got your palate cleanser right here.

Paul said...

Still waiting for the Jumbos....

Dusty Baker said...

Heh...Spank. Wish I would have thought to say that.

Paul said...

Spank flies in like Han Solez flying the el falcon.

Dusty Baker said...

The more we keep conversing, the sooner the Jimbo comment count lessens and eventually dissipates.

So keep talkin'.

Paul said...

I am still giggling about the suckling big comment. It messed up two conversations already.

Josh S. said...

I want Jimbo to fade into obscurity too, but I still would like to hear the voicemails.

Josh S. said...

Ice cream status: chocolate chip.

Dusty Baker said...

Dessert status: red velvet cake

Jimbo said...

In-N-Out Status: Double-Single with Onions, Fries

No shake because This Jimbo needs to stfu fatty.

Steve Sax said...

Added to the post with an update on Adrian Beltre tonight.

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

I was truly hoping you didn't see the night Beltre had, Sax. I knew it would drive a Son to madness.

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty out. Need my Blue sleep so I can get some things done tomorrow before heading back to the Yard. Mrs . Dusty demanded that we go to get those Dodger snuggy blanket thingies.

Dusty Baker said...

Spank said...

Steve Sax said...

How about a third baseman with power, and a decent left fielder?

David said...
