Game 108 Thread: August 1 @ Padres, 7p

"Wilson, I predict fewer than this many hits for both teams tonight."

Clayton Kershaw (12-4, 2.72) vs. Cory Luebke (3-5, 2.92).

When the third-to-last team in the majors in runs scored takes on the second-to-last team in the majors in runs scored at one of the least hitter-friendly parks in the majors, you know we're in for a real slogfest. Add the Dodgers' best pitcher to the mix, and we can expect less contact than Tom Hanks saw in "Cast Away."

Pitcher-friendly?

Jason said...

Not pictured: Baseball announcer waking up and confidently stating "I'm Keith Hernandez!"

Steve Sax said...

Hey, even Tom Hanks is into the SoSG Streaking game!

NicJ said...

get ready to draft your asses off!

NicJ said...

when does the draft room open up?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Lineup goes up an hour before.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

My league-wide email censored the "ass" in "mass-effect."

Fuck you, ESPN.

NicJ said...

i saw that.

lol.

NicJ said...

fuck i draft 12th!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FUCK I DRAFT 15th!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

MB PICKS FIRST? WHAT A RIPOFF!

NicJ said...

shhhh, she'll probably take tony romo.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm running my Yahoo! draft right now. Got Ray Rice, Darren McFadden, and Philip Rivers.

NicJ said...

Ugh Ray Rice completely fucked me over last year.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

But McGahee is gone, so Rice gets all the red zone touches.

NicJ said...

Im sure they will find some other big guy to take them in five yards out.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Bet you wish you had MJD, huh?

NicJ said...

not really i think they were actually tied in points last year.

NicJ said...

actually Ray Rice was better, but he piled on the points at the end of the year when i was already out of it.

Steve Sax said...

You fantasy footbally types are so cute, I'm going to have to conceal more secret messages in this year's weekly update posts.

Steve Sax said...

Gordon SS
Blake 3B (*that's not a "38", as in years old)
Ethier RF
Kemp CF
Rivera LF
Barajas C
Loney 1B
Carrol 2B
Kershaw P

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

MJD scored in bunches.

Jason said...

I put myself on an NFL blackout during the lockout so I am completely uninformed going into this draft.

That said, I'm totally drafting Cooper Manning in the first round.

Jason said...

We're back to the "Blake bats second because he once laid down a sweet sacrifice bunt in a Pony league game back in '58" experiment?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

My Yahoo! draft is now complete.

Jason said...

I got a Livan Hernandez - Win badge? I am so confused right now.

Jason said...

Paging Dusty, you are needed in the draft room...

Jason said...

Kershaw's sporting a neck beard tonight.

Jason said...

In the office drafting my fantasy football team, Vinny!

Jason said...

Clayton is a little wild tonight.

Bean the mascot, kid!

Jason said...

Loney hit that ball about 400 feet.

Jason said...

Kemp pulls a Vlad Guerrero and hits a ball that was about 2 inches off the ground for a double

Jason said...

Hey, we're not losing!

Jason said...

Loney: GIDP

Jason said...

Kershaw bunts for a single.

Jason said...

^ thread whore

Steve Sax said...

Hey, we're actually rallying!

Steve Sax said...

I figured this game would be unusual when it took the third inning to get Kershaw his first K.

Steve Sax said...

How is the draft going, guys? Who won?

Jason said...

Ackbar beats a throw from 60 feet away to the plate

Jason said...

This is the slowest draft ever

Jason said...

I mean that in both a time sense and also a short bus sense.

Jason said...

Tonight's trivia question involved two players from the 1920s. I'd say they are running low on ways to entertain the few of us that still watch these games.

MR.F said...

Wotchale!

We're winning!

Jason said...

45

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm back.

What'd I miss?

NicJ said...

i already hate my team.

Dusty Baker said...

i missed 45 AND the draft.

(cries)

Josh S. said...

Note to self for next time: Draft a RB before there are only scraps left.

Spank said...

I forgot about the soda I left in the freezer. Fuck.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I should not have taken Reggie.

NicJ said...

We should have waited two weeks. There were way too many guys not on teams yet.

With that being said I'm coming in last anyways.

NicJ said...

I just realized that blogger has a mobile version. So much better!

NicJ said...

@Spank - I'll trade you Devon Bessie for that frozen soda.

NicJ said...

*bess

Mr. Customer said...

The dilution of talent in that draft did not give me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

MR.F said...

Jeebus Matt Kemp is amazing.

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

What do you mean about mobile version of Blogger? You mean to blog or to access Blogger-based sites or something?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

This will definitely be a weird season.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah dilution really makes it difficult. Wait until injuries happen.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I feel bad for rbnlaw. Randy Moss AND Carson Palmer.

Mr. Customer said...

I do not, however, feel sorry for either Randy Moss or Carson Palmer

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Of course, both will come out of retirement and proceed to burn the league.

NicJ said...

Just type in www.sonsofstevegarvey.com/?m=1

It a mobile web page for blogger based blogs.

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

Does this make it easier to skip DeLino posts?

Dusty Baker said...

Rookie debut at pitcher. Loney should eat him ali.....awwww, shit.

NicJ said...

Seeing how the comment threads on Delino posts are more deserted than dodger stadium this year I figure everyone has been conditioned to block those out on their own.

Neeebs said...

Hey now, Delino is the "special" son. Be kind.

Mr. Customer said...

Hey, I enjoy Delino posts. They're usually unrelated to how terrible this team has become.

Josh S. said...

I knew Blogger had mobile sites, but I thought the Sons had to turn it on. Didn't know there was a workaround.

Josh S. said...

Shit, the game's almost over? Stoopid draft.

Mr. Customer said...

Do we still make party anymore?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hey, a win!

Dusty Baker said...

I forgot how to make party.

Dusty Baker said...

I just made potty, though.

Spank said...

@ NicJ-9:06pm

No deal.

Neeebs said...

@DB: Lol

Fernie V said...

WTF, I just noticed that both of my running backs are injured.

Mr. Customer said...

It just nice not to be the bottom of the barrel.

Fernie V said...

We won got to hear Vinny call the last out.

Fernie V said...

good game, high five

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks for the great Blogger tip, Nic! I owe you a foot massage.

Josh S. said...

I enjoyed stealing Brees out from under MLASC's nose, but after that I had no draft strategy whatsoever.

Jason said...

Nic with quite possibly the most useful comment ever posted here.

Jason said...

I will not, however, be giving you a foot massage. I will buy you a full price beer, though.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I will unleash the full forces of hell upon you when we meet, Josh.

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty Baker said...

Granted, there haven't been a significant amount of useful comments on this blog, but Nic's comment definitely ranks right up there.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Aaaand happy moment over.

Rubby has a sprained ligament.

Dusty Baker said...

I have a sprained rubby.

Elymania has been resurrected.
