Game 73 Thread: June 19 vs Astros, 1p

Hiroki Kuroda (5-8, 3.31) vs. Bud Norris (4-5, 3.48).

The only thing positive I can promise about this game is the post-game Fathers' Day catch, running on the field afterward. If all goes well, I will be there to enjoy it, throwing the ball around on the field with other Dodger dads. And there's a game beforehand, too, which I will not attend. Nor watch, as to not be disappointed by the prospect of getting swept by the Astros. That would be a Fathers Day kick to the nuts, indeed.

WE SUCK

Steve Sax said...

I will be driving down 101 during this game. Maybe I can check in from the road...

karen said...

Would I be myopic if I said the Dodgers are going to win this one, therefore, there will be no Father's Day nut kicking today?

Hooooooffff. Green Lantern was a turd. I mean, I kinda knew that was gonna happen, but still.

That said, I found bits and pieces of it enjoyable.

karen said...

Troncoso sent down. The game hasn't even started yet and already we have good news.

Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there!!

Spank said...

3 up 3 down for Hiro.

karina said...

Epale everyone! Happy Fathers' Day!

of course they'll win today, why not?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Because they suck.

karen said...

Freddy Sanchez hurt. What a damn shame. :)

Spank said...

That was a tease.

Dusty Baker said...

You seriously shelled out hard-earned cash for that turd, Josh?

Or did you instead spend the cash you earned playing that SoSG race game during work hours?

karen said...

Epale MB!! Long time, girlfriend!

Dusty Baker said...

Shout out to my old man and a big thanks for taking me to my first Dodgers game back in '83. #LFP

RIP, pops.

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Karen, it has been a while. Been working lots of hours these past few months. How the heck are you and Dusty?

Spank said...

*shouts out*

Josh S. said...

Comic movies are almost always in the budget, Dust. It's too ingrained in my nature.

karen said...

MB--I'm staying with my mom right now because she is ill. Dusty Blue and my other critters are staying with my daughter at my house so we are temporarily apart. :(

Spank said...

Gordon thought he was Tekulve on that throw.

Dusty Baker said...

@MB

Busy as he'll myself. Work is bringin a brother down. At least I have the baseball season to keep me....

(cries)

MR.F said...

Wotcher, everybody! I'm at the airport waiting for my flight.

karen said...

Wotcher Mr.F! Where are you going...or coming from?

Dusty Baker said...

Did you finally get called up, Mr F?

Dusty Baker said...

Why isn't Ellis in the game?

MR.F said...

Yo Karen! I'm in Oakland, flying to Seattle for work for a whole week. I expect it will be both exciting and tiring.

karen said...

Phew!! Hiro gets out of it.

MR.F said...

Yay Hiro gets out of it.

Spank said...

You're killing me,Dish Network.Killing me!


*punches hole in wall*

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karen, so sorry to hear about your mom. I hope she is on the road to recovery and that you can get home soon.

Steve Sax said...

Yay, iPad with atbat11! Listening to vin!

MeanieBreanie said...

@DB, hang in there brotha! Have some cold ones on me and chase those blues away.
(sliding one down the bar to you)

MeanieBreanie said...

@Mr. F - safe travels to you.

Spank said...

Wasted opportunity leaving Dinner on second.

Steve Sax said...

Kuroda is going to go postal if you idiots don't start scoring some runs for him

MR.F said...

At least we won't be no-hit.

MR.F said...

Thanks Meanie!

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks, MB! Getting better already.

Hey what did you decide to do about the work opportunity?

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp draws the walk.

Pls can we DFA Loney already?

Cc: KempKershaw

karen said...

Dusty Baker said...

Steve Sax said...

Loney, you suck.

karina said...

Steve Sax said...

Loney, you suck.

Dusty Baker said...

You can say that again, Sax.

Spank said...

Fight! Fight!

Spank said...

Looks like I missed another Loney fail. Thank you,Jesus.

karen said...

Hiroki hanging in there. Waiting for his customary 2 runs.

Dusty Baker said...

Mr Dusty in Law has control of the remote so we're mainly on the golf.

Spank said...

Come on Dodgers. I want to see 10 runs on the board. Dodger runs not Astro runs,smart asses.

Dusty Baker said...

Bud Norris - dumb name.

That is all.

Spank said...

Drop a bunt fool

Paul said...

Score a fucking run. Just one measly run. UNO. You can almost do it by mistake. Fuck!!!

Hi all!

Paul said...

(cries)

karen said...

Dinner goes yard!!

Spank said...

FUCKING DINNER!!!!!!!!!!

HOMERUN!

*faints*

Josh S. said...

I CALLED IT. Mrs. S is my witness.

Paul said...

See! By accident!

Spank said...

Dinner ran the bases as if there was a pot pie waiting for him at home plate.

Mrs. S said...

He did call it. He called him "the unlikely hero."

Mrs. S

Mrs. S said...

And Happy Father's Day!

Josh S. said...

Yes, I just badgered my wife into posting on SoSG for the sole purpose of boosting my ego.

Spank said...

@ Mr and Mrs. S

I need a second witness to confirm

Spank said...

We Make Party!!

karen said...

No sweep! We are winners once again.

karina said...

we make party!

Thanks Josh for believing in dinner ;)

Steve Sax said...

Any of you guys going to the Fathers Day Catch?

Jason said...

@Mr. F

Drop me a line while you're up here in Seattle if work gives you a breather. We can commiserate over a few drinks.

Josh S. said...

@Sax: Not this year. Didn't know it was open to non-ticket holders.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Christ Almighty, we won?

rbnlaw said...

What time is the game on?

Oh, what? And we won?

Damn right it was a good Father's Day.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

We still suck.

MeanieBreanie said...

Whoo hoo, I leave and come back to a win! Sweet, sweet justice.

@DB, we are still negotiating over criterion for bonus and certain aspects of relo package. If they do not bend on bonus I will stay put. Meanwhile, a door has opened with Yahoo. Great opportunity and I will stay in SA. Should know more this week.....stay tuned.

Dusty Baker said...

@ Karina 3:49

Josh never stopped believing in dinner.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up! And it's a story, too!
