Game 93 Thread: July 15 @ D'backs, 6.30p

Clayton Kershaw (9-4, 3.03) vs. Joe Saunders (6-7, 3.86).

Three Dodgers in particular didn't have to move very far following Tuesday night's All-Star Game, scheduled to pick up this weekend series with Arizona at Chase Field and the Dodgers riding a season-high four-game winning streak. Kershaw is coming off a scoreless inning of work Tuesday against the American League, fanning David Ortiz and getting Robinson Cano and Alex Avila to ground to first. Colonel Saunders, on the other hand, has probably been spending the time getting extra crispy at the Phoenician pool on vacation. Let's see who gets fried tonight.

Huh? A game? Oh yeah!

Josh S. said...

Chicken Dioner!

Fernie V said...

I don't want them to play, I have been on cloud 9 for the past week.

Neeebs said...

Uribe in the two hole?

Jason said...

Uribe in the two hole gets us that much closer to the dream lineup that forms some combination of the FUCK acronym.

Also, it will launch a thousand "Urine in the two hole" jokes.

Marla World Peace said...

At least Kemp isn't being protected by a proven joke.

He's now being protected by an expected joke.

Fernie V said...

I think the Nedster, has him there cause the Giants want to see him bat with some protection behind him. He will probably trade him for some injured player Jason Schmidt.

Fernie V said...

hey josh, carroll should be batting third and Ethier behind Kemp for protection. Yahtzee!

Fernie V said...

@Fernie V: what do you have against Urkel?

Steve Sax said...

I am so psyched to have another Dodger game on, yet I'm t have a function tonight. Sigh.

Marla World Peace said...

Reminder: Ten people still have not registered their teams for SoSG FF.

DO IT. DO IT NOW.

Spank said...

The other ten people don't want none of this.

Marla World Peace said...

I know I don't, Spank.

Fernie V said...

Stevo, I hate all Giants and Braves, current and former.

Josh S. said...

Meet the second half, same as the first half.

Josh S. said...

CANNON ARM, ENGAGE!

Fernie V said...

Oh yeah baby, this is how we do it.

Josh S. said...

Heheheh.

3 year contract.

Fernie V said...

What is this ff you speak of

Spank said...

HOLY SHIT! I thought the game started at 7.

Spank said...

Kiss my ass, Loney. Get all up in there.

World B. Dusty said...

What is this -- base ball -- you speak of?

BRING IT!

Dusty finally up in dis bish!

ps- On the sofa, Vinny!

World B. Dusty said...

@Marla

Please let me know password so I can register for fantasy mediocrity.

World B. Dusty said...

What happened to my avi? Actually, it's an accurate representation of my week.

World B. Dusty said...

Heh heh - Lone Butte

Josh S. said...

Rivera is trying to outproduce the other nine guys who have played left this year in one night.

Not a difficult task.

Fernie V said...

I love these guys who have always wanted to be dodgers, freakin Rivera is playing out of his mind. Hopefully, he doesn't blow his wad and get old fast like Barrajas.

Steve Sax said...

Juan Rivera ladies and gents

Josh S. said...

The Blue is well represented in the crowd tonight.

Spank said...

Kiss Kershaws ass,y'all!

Fernie V said...

Ah Josh, don't remind me I was suppose to be there.

PenosCabell said...

Matthew!

Alex Cora said...

Holy crap kemp crushed that ball.

Josh S. said...

Where was that on Monday, Matty?

Josh S. said...

Lucas, as he was leaving the living room to be put to bed, "A'bye, Dodgers!"

World B. Dusty said...

That is so awesome re: Lucas, Josh.

Josh S. said...

My dad's been trying to get him to say Yankees. We're going to have words.

World B. Dusty said...

@Josh

That's fine, if his next learned word is "suck."

Josh S. said...

That dude in the Luxor commercial has possibly the worst haircut I've ever seen.

World B. Dusty said...

@Josh

But you've seen Dee Gordon's haircut, right?

World B. Dusty said...

Matty!

I'm abt 20 mins behind.

World B. Dusty said...

^On the game, and in life.

World B. Dusty said...

Josh S. said...

I had to tag in on the putting the kid to bed process. I missed the two out madness.

Spank said...

Wu-Tang,Bishes!

World B. Dusty said...

Wu-Tang Forever, Spank!

Spank said...

I feel like eating onion rings and hot wings.

#Owings

Josh S. said...

Wha hoppen?

Spank said...

DB No Photo

World B. Dusty said...

the sad part is i can't even remember what my avi was supposed to be.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, this is too close

World B. Dusty said...

Oh, wait, the sad part is that we suck.

Spank said...

Kuo's left arm recycling price is up to 5 cents a pound.

Spank said...

Whoopsie Daisy. It is now back down to 2 cents a pound.

World B. Dusty said...

when did badges start featuring pitchers?

cc: sax

Josh S. said...

What the hell was THAT?

Spank said...

Why am I not nervous? Must be the booze.

Josh S. said...

Deuces be wild, yo.

Josh S. said...

Yes!

Paul said...

And now we make PARTY!!!

World B. Dusty said...

We make reluctant party.

Spank said...

I'll make more party!

World B. Dusty said...

I need a major renovation of my handle and avi.

And attitude.

Marla World Peace said...

Hey, we won!

Marla World Peace said...

@Dusty - Email me for password.

Spank said...

(cries tears of joy like an Intervention rehab acceptance)

Spank said...

@ Marla

Niekro,just send him the password already.

Spank said...

^please

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah, Marla, you can't proactively just break a password off for a brother? I gotta beg?

*gets on knees*

Marla World Peace said...

Fine.

(crosses arms)

Neeebs said...

Spank: Send me the password because its not in my inbox.

Marla World Peace said...

I don't even have your email, Neeebs, so you have no excuses.

Jason said...

I missed Dodger baseball (involving Kemp and Kershaw).

@Spank - the new avatar is strong!

Marla World Peace said...

Team Baker is in.

Jason said...

@Needs - even your mom is already in on the fantasy league.


*ducks*

Neeebs said...

Is this really going to be a 20 team league? You really can't have more than 12 or the dilution of talent will be woeful.

Dusty Baker said...

@Neeebs

Are you talking about the NBA?

Marla World Peace said...

18 teams, and yes, it will be a very deep league. I was hoping to keep it to 14, but a lot of people wanted to join, so I reluctantly expanded the membership drive.

Besides, it adds a few wrinkles to everything. More players to keep an eye on, three divisions, etc.

Spank said...

What Marla said,Needs.

Marla World Peace said...

@Neeebs - Also,

EMAIL ME FOR THE FRIGGIN PASSWORD.

Dusty Baker said...

God dammit, Neeebs, help a commissioner out!

Neeebs said...

I can't do an 18 team league. Im a FF snob. You should split it into two leagues. Just saying.

Spank said...

^culero

Marla World Peace said...

Nine people are already registered, I can't delete the league once it's been created, two leagues will invariably split people apart from those they wish to compete with, two leagues would be uneven since there's 18, and IT'S FOR FRIGGIN FUN. 75% OF US BASTARDS DON'T KNOW WHTAT THE HELL WE'RE DOING. NICJ BATTLED FOR LAST PLACE FOR JEEBUS' SAKE.

Marla World Peace said...

THE GRAND PRIZE WAS A 2008 JUAN PIERRE CARD.

Fernie V said...

Put the password in the basket!

Dusty Baker said...

75% is a bit of an understatement, Commish.

Neeebs said...

Im out.

Marla World Peace said...

goddammit.

Fernie V said...

Don't fall for it W, it's a bluff.

Spank said...

Come on Neeebs. Don't punk out.

Fernie V said...

Give Neebs the first pick to keep him.

Spank said...

I have a feeling more people are going to flake out. Must have been my 5:30pm comment.

Marla World Peace said...

I was going to give all participants a consolation prize, but I guess Neeebs doesn't want it.

What about you, Fernie V?

Dusty Baker said...

Neeebs is holding out for more money and better rookie compensation.

Fernie V said...

@Steve, ok maybe I don't hate Urine as much as I once did. Manny Mota said he was trying to hard and I tried to like him. He isn't giving me a choice, 1 for 5 batting .206.

Spank said...

Neeebs is the Marvin Miller of Fantasy Football.

Fernie V said...

What's the consolation prize?
How many teams you at?
20 can be to many.

Spank said...

100!

Cc:karina

Spank said...

Dammit FV!

Dusty Baker said...

Whoa...I was JUST typing the same exact thing, Spank.

*drinks*

Fernie V said...

I'll take it, I'm in.

Marla World Peace said...

The consolation prize is my eternal gratitude and a pizza party at Shakey's.

Marla World Peace said...

Hit me up on the email, FV. You can find it in my profile.

Fernie V said...

She didn't offer anything, I got a little Cosmo Kramer in me sometimes.

Fernie V said...

So how many teams you at?

Marla World Peace said...

18 spots open, and nine already taken.

Marla World Peace said...

I mean, 18 spots total.

Dusty Baker said...

Neeebs' mom still open

(ducks)

Fernie V said...

This may eliminate me but having trouble getting that email.

Marla World Peace said...

Steve Sax said...

Mr La SF: owe you a post about the FF league, sorry I'm late on this....

Spank said...

Bad,Dusty.Bad.

Steve Sax said...

FIVE IN A ROW ALL YOU HATERS

Marla World Peace said...

@Sax - Wrong thread. You want the one with the guy complaining about us complaining about the French Fries.

Fernie V said...

Yeah Sax, your looking for comments like, "I'm very upset about what you said about my coat. I made it outta your mother's pubic hair." You won't find it here, except for dusty on neebs mom.

Fernie V said...

Hey Man, we won how cool is that, and you were worried about the game.

Spank said...

Goddamn! karina joined the league. Wassup, you bishes!

Spank said...

Won't you pour me a Cuban Breeze,Gretchen?

Spank said...

Try to hang on,Maxine......
