Game 48 Thread: May 22 @ White Sox, 11a

Hiroki Kuroda (5-3, 2.80) vs. Edwin Jackson (3-5, 4.53).

As if seeing former Dodger Paul Konerko go 3-for-5 with 3 RBI yesterday wasn't bad enough, today we get former Dodger Edwin Jackson as the Sox' starter. (Metter of fact, the White Sox have been held scoreless in four of Jackson's last six outings, so Jackson may think he's still on the Dodgers.) But with Jerry Sands breaking out yesterday (his first HR in the majors), and the apocalypse averted, things may be just crazy enough in Chicago to give us a shot at the rubber match (and a winning record in interleague play (for now)).

Where the hell is EK these days? Just hit me that he's been a ghost. What gives?

Josh S. said...

UP AND AT THEM.

Dusty Baker said...

Furcal off DL. But replaced there by Urine.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

UP AND LET'S GO

Dusty Baker said...

Relegation Sunday in the Premiership. Now that's some good sports drama!

Josh S. said...

I think if you go 15 days without urine, you die.

Dusty Baker said...

Urine's upper pee-pee is hurt.

Dusty Baker said...

Furcal 6
Carroll 4
Ethier 9
Kemp 8
Loney 3
Barajas 2

Dusty Baker said...

Gibbons is DHing? And DH spot is 7th?


(obligatory outpouring of sadness expressed through physiological process that results in saline substance emanating from eyes)

Josh S. said...

I hope this Furcal guy they called up from AAA works out.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

Dusty Baker said...

Mrs Dusty surprised me with a trip to the Kung Fu Panda II premier today, and the screening starts at 11am. So I will have to skip the game until later this afternoon. Let's go, Blue!

Mr F, can you type in some "(cries)" for me in the GT?

Random side note.

The old coot preacher who started the whole judgement day nonesense that hasn't transpired lives in my town. Local rumor is that he's holed up in his home. Wonder if he's gonna do something stupid to himself...

I'm gonna go play with my kids.

Josh S. said...

One of these days I need to get around to seeing the first Kung-Fu Panda.

And punching the fat slob who stole the name.

Mr. Customer said...

Epale, y'all. i've come back for more punishment.

Steve Sax said...

I'm up, one bloody Mary down!

Steve Sax said...

Dusty, how dare you miss a Dodgers game to support Pablo Sandoval.

Steve Sax said...

The first Panda isn't bad, Josh

Everybody needs a little KFP

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah but I got to see Lucy Liu from a few feet away. Beats seeing Aaron Miles in HD.

Paul said...

Welcome back Fookie!!!!

Paul said...

It is good to have Furcal back. I give him till late June.

Josh S. said...

Fuck this, I'm going to Target.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WE SUCK

Mr. Customer said...

That didn't take long.

NicJ said...

Sands almost Repko'd Furcal right there.

NicJ said...

Loney is awesome.

Josh S. said...

Ugh. I hadn't left yet, so I saw that.

DFAJL

Josh S. said...

Is the PGT up yet?

rbnlaw said...

Nice to see Edwin Jackson never panned out.


*cries*

*cries once for DB*

Josh S. said...

Ethier hurt?

That's the season folks. When do pitchers and catchers report?

David said...

I think it's really saying something when Loney is the 4th best hitter in the lineup right now in the game.

David said...

Our new lineup...?

Furcal
Carroll
Loney
Kemp
Sands
Barajas
Gwynn
Mitchell

This makes me sad.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I can't wait to see the prospects we can haul for Furcal, Blake, Kuroda, Barajas, and Garland.

Josh S. said...

You might have to throw Navarro in there too, depending on what happened to Barajas.

NicJ said...

Kuroda full no trade clause.

Mr. Customer said...

I'd have to say this qualifies as depressing.

Paul said...

Rancho Fookiendo!

Paul said...

Go away Fookie!!!

MR.F said...

Wotcher, everybody!

I finally had a chance to catch up on sleep. What have I missed?

MR.F said...

Not much, apparently.

MR.F said...

Wow. Dallas McPherson is still alive.

MR.F said...

At least Jerry Sands had a good game.

Dusty Baker said...

White Bread 4-4. Feel the yummy goodness. Nothing else to see here; please disperse.

karina said...

still carrying hope...

Josh S. said...

...in a bag with a hole in it.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm holding hope like I carry around water around in my bare hands.

Neeebs said...

When does hockey season start? Oh yeah, it hasn't fished yet

Spank said...

@ karina re: still carrying hope

Best drop it before you get a hernia.
