Game 109 Thread: August 2 @ Padres, 7p

Hiroki Kuroda (6-13, 3.11) vs. Tim Stauffer (6-8, 3.10).

"We're no strangers to losing. You know the rules, and so do I. A full commitment's what I'm thinking of. You wouldn't get this from any other guy.

"I just want to tell you how I'm feeling; gotta make you...understand:

"[Dodger fans] I'm never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down, never going to run to the Cardinals, and hurt you. Never gonna say goodbye, never gonna make you cry; never gonna think that I, might get some goddamn run support every once in a while.

"Sincerely, 弘樹アストリー"

FWIW, Truebluela.com has an exclusive, no holds bar interview with Ned Colleti. Poor Ned gets raked through the coals.

Poor Ned, screw him that is what he gets.

Steve Sax said...

I can't believe TBLA has an Aflac Duck on staff.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

When did SoSG get it's own image for tabs?

Steve Sax said...

Damn you're observant! I just tried that out today; howzit look?

MR.F said...

I don't see new image!! What browser are you using?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Surprisingly, it stands out well, considering I'm so damn used to the orange Blogger symbol.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I use Firefox.

Fernie V said...

Is that coco fro on kurodo

Neeebs said...

@Sax:

Have you seen TBLA's budget?

They tried to get the Taco Bell dog too but, alas, he is in doggy heaven.

*bows head*

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

RT @dodgerscribe: Educated guess on my part, but I'm predicting Nate Eovaldi will start next Tuesday night against Phillies.

Spank said...

I noticed that SoSG tab also.

MR.F said...

Mayhaps I'll have to wait until I get home to see the new tab. It doesn't show up on Google Chrome In Cognito.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

When the hell did Ramon Ortiz join the Cubs?

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny - even though you didn't inquire in your opening monologue tonight!

Steve Sax said...

I'm at 265 badges now. One more and I'm Gambit.

Dusty Baker said...

Who knew you'd have a badge count that was higher than Loney's BA.

Spank said...

Later,peeps.

Steve Sax said...

hiroki kuroda needs to win to get the badge.

ha ha ha ha ha!

Steve Sax said...

in all seriousness, the Javy Guerra badge woudl be pretty cool.

Steve Sax said...

@Spank 7:24p, that's a cool ditty. Thanks!

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty 7:23p: NICE

Steve Sax said...

dammit, miles, a comebacker?

booo

Fred's Brim said...

Dee didnt take off right away - did he think it was going to be caught on the fly?

Fred's Brim said...

Matty I love you

Dusty Baker said...

I really want that Javy G badge. Sax, does yours have a picture associated w the badge? Mine doesn't.

Dusty Baker said...

I love the Pod Rays defense.

Fred's Brim said...

Maty I love you

Fred's Brim said...

Oops

Dusty Baker said...

I only have 19 badges.

More than Brox has saves, I suppose.

Fred's Brim said...

Rivera would have just struck out anyway. Matty got thrown out to save Rivera's at-bat

Fred's Brim said...

You have more badges than Broxton has fans

Dusty Baker said...

I have fewer badges than Brox has chins.

Fred's Brim said...

that wasn't even close
I saw that hit the ground with my bleary MLB.tv stream

Fred's Brim said...

Sax has a chance for the chin record by the end of the season if he keeps up his pace

Fred's Brim said...

tapper to short by Loney

Fred's Brim said...

sigh - not even that good

Fred's Brim said...

Navarro hits a double for a single

Fred's Brim said...

get him home, Tony!

Fred's Brim said...

that's no good
Hiroki's gotta do it himself

Fred's Brim said...

Hiro doesn't like taking pitches

Fred's Brim said...

or hitting singles

Dusty Baker said...

45

Josh S. said...

Hey jabronis, what's goin' down?

Fred's Brim said...

nice inning

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

We're winning? Hot damn!

Fred's Brim said...

go Matty go!

Josh S. said...

Making one out is not enough for the Soul-Sucking Loney Monster.

Steve Sax said...

How the FUCK does James Loney manage to GIDP even when it's statistically almost impossible?!?!

Fuck, James, you are driving me nuts!

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YOU LONEY. I was a better hitter in 3rd grade. You just fucking fucking suck you fucking sucker.

ps- you suck

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT!

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty 7:55p: my Guerra badge doesn't seem to have an image, either. Which is a little worrisome since the Vance Worley badge I "earned" doesn't have a picture, either, just a blank slot with one of those little red "X" icons.

I am still so pissed at Loney, I'm opening another beer.

Dusty Baker said...

What is that asshole's name - Tea Cozy?

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax re "I am still so pissed at Loney, I'm opening another beer."

DAMMIT!

Dusty Baker said...

Interestingly, the Fernando Salas badge to be earned also does not have an image, and he's also a reliever.

Also, the Nyjer Morgan badge to be earned has him in a Nats cap. He hasn't been w Nats for a long time.

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

"STOOPID DUSTEE"

Nice one!

Dusty Baker said...

Way to hang in there, Hiro!

Dusty Baker said...

@Saxy

Have you ever gotten a hat trick of badges in a game? One team - all three badges?

Steve Sax said...

Nice job Hiro!

Now howzabout we go out there and score 20 runs this inning, Dodgers? (Loney won't come up for at least six batters)

Dusty Baker said...

Gnats losing 1-4 in the 8th.

Dusty Baker said...

Velez is one of the shittiest hitters I've ever witnessed.

And I've seen Loney.

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

Check your email.

Josh S. said...

Ruh-roh.

Oh wait, it doesn't matter.

Paul said...

No SOSG get together this year? Not that I would want to watch a Dodger game. But the drInking sounds fun.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: yeah, I saw the nyjer Morgan badge was for the wrong team, as well. Weird.

Yeah, I have gotten the hat trick once or twice. The trifecta. I will screenshot it next time.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit MacDougal, settle the fuck down and throw some fucking strikes

Dusty Baker said...

Why couldn't McDougal need TJ surgery?

Paul said...

Doesnt matter? Giants are losing. We can get in striking distance.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: I don't see any email

Paul said...

@Dusty

Did you get the memo I sent ya?

Dusty Baker said...

I sent emails at 2:53 and 3:02 Pacific.You sure you didn't get them?

Bet your intern deleted them.

Dusty Baker said...

PHEW. My shit-sucking god McDougal blows donkey.

Josh S. said...

I took my dissatisfaction with Velez directly to Josh Rawitch. (Or whoever's running the Twitter tonight.)

Paul said...

Velez in 3D isn't much better.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty, I'm sorry I'm such an idiot here. Still emailing you

Steve Sax said...

Fnal in SF: Giants 1, Diamondbacks 6

Arizona tied for first

Steve Sax said...

Velez looked so hopelessly overmatched up there, it was funny

Paul said...

Just got a Idontgiveafuck badge.

He must be a AL middle relief guy.

Josh S. said...

Kemp could trigger the badge trifecta with one swing.

Josh S. said...

Nope.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Javy time.

Dusty Baker said...

In my mind it read "Gravy" not "Javy." Both are good.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Javy gets the gravy.

Josh S. said...

MATT FUCKING KEMP

Dusty Baker said...

Matt Fucking Kemp ladies and gentlemen.

cc: KempKershaw

Paul said...

Gravy train with biscuit wheels.

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

45x2

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Javy script: 1-2-3

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Woohoo! Javy AND Kuroda badges!

Neeebs said...

Kuroda gets a win. Dodgers give him typical support. KEMP is a stud. Either is sulking.

Josh S. said...

You can swipe between posts on this mobile thingy!

Paul said...

10 games back!

Mr. Customer said...

Good news, everyone! The Giants lost.

Dusty Baker said...

90 indeed, Czar.

Paul said...

I am back on the normal site. I don't so change well.

*takes a swig of Hamms*

Dusty Baker said...

My Javy Guerra pogbadge is broken.

Someone bent my wookie, too.
