Game 38 Thread: May 11 @ Pirates of the Caribbean (in Theaters May 20!), 4p

Hiroki Kuroda (3-3, 3.69) vs. Paul Maholm (1-4, 3.68).

Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed adventure. Crossing paths with the enigmatic Angelica (Penelope Cruz), he’s not sure if it’s love — or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the “Queen Anne’s Revenge,” the ship of the legendary pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or Angelica, with whom he shares a mysterious past. The international cast includes franchise vets Geoffrey Rush as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack’s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, plus Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES sails into theaters May 20 in Disney Digital 3D, RealD 3D and IMAX 3D!

Sons of Steve Garvey received no compensation for this product placement. But we're open to it.

Stranger Tides = Redondo Beach King Harbor

Josh S. said...

Has there been any indication that this Pirates is any good? Or at least sucks less than the last two?

(Keep in mind, even if it sucks less than the last two, it will still suck A LOT.)

Steve Sax said...

Update to the Ethier streak discount post: eight hours left to get discounted field level tickets. And now, loge level too.

Steve Sax said...

After looking at this poster, I can think of a couple of reasons to see this film.

Steve Sax said...

Yikes, Randy Wolf only lasted 3.1 IP and DIDN'T take the loss. Brewers came back to take the lead, but then the Padres had 13 batters and eight runs in the eighth to win the game 13-6.

Jason said...

@Josh - I hear the Lego version is pretty good.

Neeebs said...

I LOVE PENELOPE.

MR.F said...

"Penelope" is also a great name.

Mr. Customer said...

If it's good enough for Odysseus, who am I to disagree?

Steve Sax said...

You know, the Lego games are really hit or miss, IMHO.

Star Wars trilogy: awe to the some
Batman: mediocre
Indiana Jones: pretty terrible

So Pirates? I'm not sure.

MR.F said...

Lego Harry Potter is pretty good.

Steve Sax said...

Only Dodger badge I need today: Barajas / Single

Mr. Customer said...

I still don't have Urine, but I've gotten at least one for Tarjetas.

Steve Sax said...

WHERE ARE THE SMONK PICTURES ???

Steve Sax said...

hope you get that urethra checked, Mr. C

Mr. Customer said...

What's that? Nah, I just have a bladder like a supertanker. Nothing unusual to report.

MR.F said...

Obi-wan is dead!

The demo for Lego SW3 (based on the Clone Wars cartoon) was fuckawful.

Actually, all the Lego games suffered after the introduction of the free-moving building blocks. Those fuckers NEVER go where you want them to!!!

Josh S. said...

No mo' Kuo?

(gries)

Mr. Customer said...

Did the Kuo "announcement" sound ominous to anyone else, or am I just overly suspicious this season because we blow?

LoneLy Fan said...

What kind of lineup is that?! I'm so LONElY.

Steve Sax said...

Well, that was a fast first inning. Blerg.

Steve Sax said...

That was my first use of "blerg" so I probably f'd it up.

Steve Sax said...

We are going to need runs to back up kuroda tonight...

Steve Sax said...

Strikeout

Neeebs said...

@LF:

No Loney, No Justice

MR.F said...

Spank said...

Nice swipe tag ,Mitchell.

Mitchell?

(cries)

Neeebs said...

@Spank: Did you see Smonk's tail? Tell me about it.

Jason said...

@Spank - I spotted an ex-girlfriend sitting behind the plate. I could call her and have her ask the guy if he was in Goodfellas.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

just passing by to share something funny for Star Wars fans: http://bit.ly/ik5SwY

I'll be back after my Insanity workout

Steve Sax said...

Leadoff single by kemp and we suck it up. Yay. Man left on first.

Spank said...

@ Jason- but wouldn't that phone call be a violation of the restraining order she has against you?

Spank said...

Epale ,karina!

Is Charles Manson instructing aerobics again?

Neeebs said...

So Kuo is on the DL for an "anxiety disorder."

Um...I experience that on a daily basis. Should I go on the DL or suck it up like I do daily?

Neeebs said...

Snooze fest in Pittsburgh.

Jason said...

Screw the mohawk talk. This is Pittsburgh, show us some mullets! Or better yet, show us some femullets!

Spank said...

i hope it stays close so i can see Chente in all his awesome sweatiness.

Spank said...

Boooooooooo! damm.

No NoNo

Jason said...

Really, he can't get the last batting title? Freddy Sanchez a few years ago, perhaps?

Spank said...

Hit a homerun,Kemp! Do it for the kids.

Spank said...

Rancho Urineiendo!

Spank said...

I think Pauly got pinched. I don't see him anymore.

Spank said...

That was weak,Urine.

Spank said...

MR.F said...

Come on Kuroda, get out of the inning!

Neeebs said...

KURODA IS THE FUTURE OF THIS ORGANIZATION.

MR.F said...

Good work, Kuroda!

Steve Sax said...

Btw I didn't pick up the Barajas badge. Did any of you guys get it?

Steve Sax said...

Why has GameDay crashed in the top of the sixth?

Spank said...

That was cutting it close.

Jason said...

Kuo on the DL with anxiety disorder. Does that make him Kuozy?

Jason said...

I didn't get the Barajas badge either.

Orel said...

Celtics lose.

MR.F said...

My heart gets all aflutter whenever Matt takes a walk.

MR.F said...

Gah. As someone with anxiety issues, I hope Kuo gets whatever help he needs.

Spank said...

take a cold shower,mr.f.

Spank said...

booooooooooooo

Spank said...

come on sands

Spank said...

Just realized the thread pic is of Penelope Cruz and not Johnny Depp.

Spank said...

Loney comes in as defensive replacement for Mitchell.

(cries)

Spank said...

Nice glove,Loney! Now,whatcha gonna do with that bat,mutt.

Orel said...

Steve Sax said...

Eric Collins just said "and the Dodgers, only three games out in the waste...the RACE in the NL West."

Appropriate, no?
