Game 145 Thread: Sept. 11 @ Giants, 1p

Hiroki Kuroda (11-15, 3.18) vs. Madison Bumgarner (10-12, 3.37).

That's right; the suddenly-.500 Dodgers are helping usher the Giants out of the postseason. The Giants, losers of three straight, are in a position to be swept by the Dodgers today. Meanwhile, the Diamondbacks have won four straight and are running away with the division with a 9.5-game lead. We're not playing for glory this season, boys, but we're playing for pride. Break out the brooms!

At the movies, Vinny!

But will be back in tine for the game of course. Go Blue!

Steve Sax said...

Wow, yesterday was fun. Really appreciated everyone who showed up at SoSG Fest, especially all of you who helped us prepare Mr LA SC's AC prize!

Josh S. said...

Dodgers have a .636 winning percentage since Uribe went down. So, naturally, if they never had him to begin with, they'd have won 92 games by now.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

Dusty Baker said...

Wotcherpale'sup, Karina!

Neeebs said...

At the [secret location redacted].
Where is everyone? Only football on the TV. Was I pranked?

karina said...

So, is Rivera going to be our 2012 1B?

*cries*

Fernie V said...

Damn, that dude just got three k's like nothing on us

Fernie V said...

Iff Loney learns to pitch in relief he could be pretty valuable.

Dusty Baker said...

Make that 4 Ks.

karina said...

Dodgers offense so far: 4 straight Ks

Dusty Baker said...

I just got a Corey Hart badge. Unfortunately, he's not wearing sunglasses.

Dusty Baker said...

Someone hit the fucking ball!

Dusty Baker said...

Eat shit, Buttgardener!

Dusty Baker said...

Looking at my avatar, I like to imagine Vinny saying what I just commented on above.

Josh S. said...

No fugly hats for 9/11?

Dusty Baker said...

Shit yeah! One run is in!

At first I thought we might get no hit.

Dusty Baker said...

They're scared of Russ Mitchell.

karina said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO!

Mr. Customer said...

Epale, y'all!

Dusty Baker said...

It's been a long time since you popped up to point out a RANCHO, Karina. Too long.

Rancho Kariniendo!

Mr. Customer said...

Good to see you guys yesterday (and nice to come away with a win this year)

Dusty Baker said...

Excellent to see you, too, Customer. It had been way too long. WTF? We suck.

Mr. Customer said...

Oh well, I'll still take the run.

Mr. Customer said...

Truth.

karina said...

@Dusty that's right but my current schedule is what it is

karina said...

nope, that was millimeters away from HR

Josh S. said...

Oh fuck.

Mr. Customer said...

Hate that guy.

Josh S. said...

Umps are watching football.

Josh S. said...

I thought Bochy needed drawings there for a second.

Josh S. said...

"Come to think of it, I think we've talked about everything before." -Vin

*dies laughing*

Dusty Baker said...

Umps made the right call, but wow, what a quirk of gravity.

Dusty Baker said...

Kuroda is all one the fucking map. It's like if I told Mrs Dusty to use a map to drive herself to Flagstaff.

rbnlaw said...

Odelay, all.
I was getting lone(l)y on the smack thread.

Dusty Baker said...

SS Gordon
RF Sands
CF Kemp
1B Rivera
2B Miles
C Barajas
LF Gwynn
3B Mitchell
P Kuroda

Dusty Baker said...

Aw, snap. I forgot about the smack thread.

This is entirely different content here in the GT.

Josh S. said...

Fack.

rbnlaw said...

Fuck Eli and his white sides.

Mr. Customer said...

Looking shaky.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm not shaky at all, Mr. C.

Dusty Baker said...

Mmmm....Shakey's.

Josh S. said...

Kurodingsley?

Dusty Baker said...

How long will Kuroda pitch today?

Dusty Baker said...

45

rbnlaw said...

I don't like watching Kuroda in the first 3 innings.

rbnlaw said...

Negra Modello is good beer, I believe.

Dusty Baker said...

Got out of the jam. Can't keep getting into jams every inning, though.

Mmmmmm....jam.

Dusty Baker said...

Negra Modelo is indeed good, and I would have lied to order about 8 more last night at [redacted], but the punks were quickly sold out of it. Bad beer management on their part.

Dusty Baker said...

^18

Mr. Customer said...

Fuck you, Pablo Sandwich.

rbnlaw said...

This must be the worst 1-1 game ever.

Dusty Baker said...

Mrs Dusty from the other room: [Dusty], are these clothes clean?

Dusty: Are they on the floor?

Mrs. Dusty: No.

Dusty: Then they're clean.

Mrs. Dusty-in-law: Do they smell?

Mrs. Dusty: They don't really smell bad. They just spell like deodorant.

Dusty: Deodorant smells good, no?

All women on the room: (collective groan)

rbnlaw said...

Just when can the redacted location be un-redacted?

karina said...

@Dusty

*shakes head, agrees with Mrs Dusty and Mrs Dusty in law*

Mr. Customer said...

That doesn't help.

Dusty Baker said...

Instapoll:

Could you be married to a Gnats fan?

karina said...

on the Giants broadcast, they showed a Dodgers groom and a Giants bride, how can anyone want to date a Giants fan?

karina said...

OUT!

karina said...

King James had a better defense :)

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

They just showed a couple where the guy was LA and the gal was SF.

Seriously, this would be something love could never supersede.

karina said...

^has

Dusty Baker said...

Dbags losing 6-0.

rbnlaw said...

I'll take Rivera as our 1B next year.

rbnlaw said...

I like Costco hot dogs.


With beer.

karina said...

@Dusty I don't think I could date a Giants fan, there isn't enough love to live with someone with a Giants adoration, even if he"s only a casual fan.

Fred's Brim said...

*steps into the annex*
a bucket and a half of Buds during the Bills game, cooling off now before I eat three hot dogs

Dusty Baker said...

Vinny talking about his post-Sept. 11 game time comments, and how they were not scripted.

(legend grows)

Fred's Brim said...

And eff Serena Williams. She's a dick. She gets mad after a umpire's call and then starts playing? Fuck you, play a whole match.

rbnlaw said...

Going to watch my boy play baseball. Winter ball in effect.

rbnlaw said...

FB!!

I'll leave the Serena-fucking to you.

She's a bit too muscular for me. And I bruise easily.

Mr. Customer said...

Is it just me, or is this game moving really slowly for being 1-1?

Fred's Brim said...

^an

^^fuck

Dusty Baker said...

Dammit!

karina said...

*almost, Gwynn Jr*

I hate Pandoval

Mr. Customer said...

This doesn't smell like a win.

Dusty Baker said...

"This doesn't smell like a win."

That's what Mrs Dusty said re my laundry.

Steve Sax said...

Well, this isn't good.

Dusty Baker said...

This crowd is full of beans, per Vin.

It's also full of chardonnay and upscale sandwiches.

Fred's Brim said...

@rb, I'll try to take as many pictures as I can before I get the camera smashed in my face

Fred's Brim said...

HCK has refound some of his past nastiness

Fred's Brim said...

G-Mo!
Let's score 5 runs

karina said...

yeah, Guillermo Mota

Fred's Brim said...

hi Karina, welcome back!

Dusty Baker said...

Dbags draw cloer to Pod Rays 7-5.

karina said...

epale FB! today is a weird occasion, I'll still be very busy for a few more weeks, which means no SoSG :_(

Dusty Baker said...

No sausage? Bad breakfast.

Dusty Baker said...

Rod!

Dusty Baker said...

90

Fred's Brim said...

@karina, we are glad you are here today

Fred's Brim said...

Loney wouldn't have scored either

Fred's Brim said...

oh man that was so close

Dusty Baker said...

I think I just got a sports hernia trying to get that Gwynn hit to be fair with my body language.

Fred's Brim said...

feck

Fred's Brim said...

cut yer hair, Brandon!

Fred's Brim said...

or wash it

karina said...

@Fred's Brim *hug*

karina said...

99

karina said...

100!

Dusty Baker said...

Two Dodger pitchers in a row whose last name begins with a K and a U.

Fred's Brim said...

sweet jesus, he's lost it again

maybe he never had it back and I was giving him too much credit

Fred's Brim said...

oops

Dusty Baker said...

I lost it again.

Running out of things to throw at the wall.

Dusty Baker said...

Everett Teaford badge!!!

Josh S. said...

Three Dodger pitchers in a row with a P and a U.

We shouldn't have left the bar, gents.

Dusty Baker said...

So true, Josh. So true.

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

7-6 Pod Rays over Dbags. Still plenty of innings for Dbags to complete the comeback.

But don't call it a comeback.

Steve Sax said...

That...was not a good inning.

.500 was fun while it lasted! We may need to have another SoSG Fest...

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

I'll be at [bar] in about 25 minutes!

karina said...

it's my fault, gents. Hadn't watched a game on tv in MONTHS and when I get the pleasure to watch one, it happens THIS.

*cries*

Mr. Customer said...

Well, shit.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: I may be at Souplantation.

Same thing, right?

Mr. LA Assassins Czar said...

But he can lead!

karina said...

I'm sorry :( it's totally my fault!

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

Is there a Beerplantation?

Jason said...

@Dusty

I worked at a Souplantation in high school. I can confirm that there was such a thing as Beerplantation after-hours.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Surprisingly little trash-talk yesterday, even with the gnats winning, except for the token few drunken former frat boys puffing up their chests. The gnats are done, our dagger is their back, it's just a slow bleed out for them now.
