Preseason Game 32 Thread: April 3 vs. Angels, 7p

So here we go, the 2012 season's first game in Dodger Stadium. Except this one doesn't count.

The last two weeks or so, Sax here has been hibernating through the tail end of spring training. And tonight, Sax awakens!

Sax will be there tonight, drinking a beer under the cool spring evening aura. Eating a hot dog or four. Wearing a SoSG softball shirt that I stole from Orel (possibly concealed by a Dodgers warmup jacket, depending on how cold it is tonight). Kicking back and enjoying watching my favorite Dodgers and Juan Uribe. Thinking about myself in the third person (and with a pseudonym, at that).

Hit me up in the PSGT if you want to catch up (Nomo will be in attendance as well, if my Batman decoder ring translated the teletype correctly).

Nomo, check your email

Fred's Brim said...

On the davenport, Vinny!

Dusty Baker said...

Just sat down after a long day at work even though I shouldn't' have gone because I'm still sick as a dog, Vinny!

Steve Sax said...

Just saw Nomo. He's got the More Bear Porn sign.

Steve Sax said...

Mellis!

Steve Sax said...

Very atrange, I'm getting reception here at the Stadium. Betting it's because of low turnout rather than upgraded cell towers...

Fred's Brim said...

So they were chanting "MBP", not "MVP"?

Hideo Nomo said...

Thanks for the slap and tickle, Saxy.

Hideo Nomo said...

Kemp luring the league into a false sense of security with all these Ks.

Steve Sax said...

Seems like a different voice of the dodgers this year on the stadium PA?

Hideo Nomo said...

Whoever is filling in for Eric Smith sounds like he's eating while announcing.

Fred's Brim said...

@Hideo 7:28 I sure hope you are right

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck off, Pulgas!

DelinO said...

DelinO also in attendance with deshields jr. Worst concession line evere. Wound up getting carls jr. CARLS JR!!!!!!!

Steve Sax said...

HORRIBLE queues at concession stands. Can't move in concourse

Hideo Nomo said...

CARL'S JR?!!!

Cell service still sucks balls here.

Fred's Brim said...

Harang with the laserbeam up the middle!

DelinO said...

My son declared that he was scared of the picture of ervin santana.

Dusty Baker said...

Dee Gordon is 5'11"??? I thought he was about 5'3".

DelinO said...

Anyone else thinking about Dee from Whats Happening?

Dusty Baker said...

Shitty cell service: check

Long concession lines: check

Let the season begin!

Dusty Baker said...

I was thinking about Dee Snyder.

Fred's Brim said...

Some poor fielding help Dee get on, 1st and 2nd, 1 out, Mehllis is up

no double plays, please. Let Matty get up with some guys on

Fred's Brim said...

Matty can't resist the breaking ball again

Fred's Brim said...

Pulgas gets a taste of nighttime hitting in LA

Fred's Brim said...

Oh Urine

Fred's Brim said...

Wow, nice play by Ellis

Aaron Miles would still be running for that one

Hideo Nomo said...

THEY SHOW JACKIE JOHNSON ON THE DODGERVISION NOW.

Hideo Nomo said...

Fuck you, Santana.

Fred's Brim said...

Leave our catchers alone!

Dusty Baker said...

Vin talking about the Hairston generations: check!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ajellis: Getting on base any way he can.

Steve Sax said...

Saw DelinO, and just bumped into Eric Stephen on the escalators. He's looking sweet with the new creds

Fred's Brim said...

Rancho Ardiendo!

HBP, walk and a Deesingle have us in business with no outs

Fred's Brim said...

cmon Matty!

Dusty Baker said...

Wow, flyouts are often better than strikeouts, Kemp!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Useless spring RBI!

Dusty Baker said...

Eric Stephen got new threads? About time!

Oh wait, creds you said.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

46

Fred's Brim said...

Matty gets the job done with the sac fly

Dusty Baker said...

Daaaaaaaamn....BoSox closer Andrew Bailey out 4-5 months with a thumb ligament.

Steve Sax said...

Scoop age from Eric Stephen: he thinks Sellers made the team

Fred's Brim said...

Kendrys is a tub, isn't he?

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks for that Sax, and Eric!

I'm cool with Sellers.

Dusty Baker said...

Kendrys has been on the bananas foster regimen since being sidelined, it would seem.

Steve Sax said...

Sanchez not so good here, and here comes some guy named Albert

Steve Sax said...

Sanchez balks two men into scoring position, then serves up an Almost HR to Albert

Dusty Baker said...

Sanchez will have to get dirtier to get people out.

Steve Sax said...

Pujols and Kemp, tied with SFs

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax and Nomo - looks like a lot of Angel fans in the crowd, more than there should be

Steve Sax said...

Come on gwynn

Steve Sax said...

FB, no worries, the Angels fans are just wearing red so they can get security escorts to their cars before they drive behind the orange curtain

Steve Sax said...

Nice bunt there by kennedy

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Jus - don't make them rethink their decision

Fred's Brim said...

that'll work!

Steve Sax said...

Tony just put the Guh in Guh-wynn

Fred's Brim said...

Tony didn't know where the fielders were, took him a second to figure out they wouldn't be able to get to it

Steve Sax said...

My intel says the dodgers have sold only 9000 tickets for tomorrow's game. I expect only one concession stand will be open.

Steve Sax said...

Matt Treanor's screencap has crazy bugeyes

Steve Sax said...

I'm seriously getting freaked out here with hyperthyroid up there

Wait , 2-run RBI for bug eyes

Dusty Baker said...

Oooey-gooey runny goodness! 4-1 Blue Men

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Jerry. If you get on base like this, I won't mind at all

Fred's Brim said...

Attaboy Matt

Fred's Brim said...

And Vin is well-aware of Treanor's better half

Dusty Baker said...

Takahashi, can we play you every day?

Steve Sax said...

Fucking wave is going

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho still diendo.

Dusty Baker said...

Why did you start the wave, Sax?

Dusty Baker said...

As in "They waving Takahashi goodbye now"

Dusty Baker said...

Wow, Kemp. Loney could have done that.

Steve Sax said...

Matt Kemp is not going to get 50-50 this year, I reckon.

Fred's Brim said...

hmm

Steve Sax said...

They just showed the "name that tune" thing, and DIDN'T play the songs. What the fuck?!

Steve Sax said...

They are still doing GBA.

Eight year old doing it at the speed of James Baldwin. Ugghggggggggghhhhhhhh

Fred's Brim said...

OK I need to work my way into these west-coast mid-week games. I feel good getting into the 7th but I am gonna hit the showers. I trust you guys can finish off this win. Gnite, all.

Hideo Nomo said...

Weird orange blotch in the middle of Dodgervision.

Mr. Walter sir, can we please have an HD screen?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

It's not a spring thread unless Sax extrapolates meaningless spring results.

Hideo Nomo said...

Suddenly the Angels are using the DH.

Dusty Baker said...

Free half inning!

Dusty Baker said...

Feels like we won twice! (takes what he can get)

rbnlaw said...

I'm sorry, I was drinking. Was there a game?


Seriously, be at the game tomorrow just to keep the kids quiet.

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm still in line for Dodger Dogs.

Neeebs * said...

Is it too soon to be worried about our bench? Where's the power bat? *cries*

Steve Sax said...

That WAS the power bat

DelinO said...

I finally got to the front of the hot dog line. (Notice time of post)
