Game 123 Thread: August 20 vs. Giants, 7p

What do you mean I can't use executive privilege for that?
 Clayton Kershaw (11-6, 2.90) vs. Madison Bumgarner (13-7, 2.97)

Gee, are we going to talk about PEDs now that the Giants are in town? Even setting aside the (completely understandable) schadenfreude and the turnabout-is-fair-play needling of Giants apologists who were all too ready to pile on when the Dodgers lost their own slugging outfielder not-so-very-long ago, this was always going to be a series to get fired up for.

The Dodgers get both Bumgarner and Cain this time around (on either side of a Timmeh sandwich), so it's critical that they bring some of that offensive momentum back with them from their successful road trip. Counting today, there are nine more games with San Francisco left, so it would be fantastic if we could put them on the defensive to start the final quarter of the season.

@ Orel: Couldn't tell you.

Eff, Urine.

Orel said...

Bumstead at 118 pitches.

Paul said...

Vicster and Urine. You are just swell.

Franklin Stubbs said...

We are completely screwed.

Spank Horst said...

meh

MR.F said...

123 pitches for TopBabyGirl'sName.

MR.F said...

At least we have Mellis-Kemp-Hanram?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Damn it all, this was the game we needed to win.

Orel said...

Beli in. Donnie thinks we still have a chance.

Franklin Stubbs said...

We have a chance, just not a GOOD chance.

Fat Panda is fucking fat. I mean, he's portly.

Chad Beardingsley said...

@ Sax at 7:06 p.m.: Thanks for the tip re. the Russian Standard. Will have to try that some time.

I'll fess up: the weeknight Sauvignon Blanc is -- I kid you not -- the ultra-overachieving Oak Hill Saouvignon Blanc. It's clean as a whistle, consistent as can be, and well below $4 per 750 ml. Even though I'm in the wine biz,I love this stuff as a weeknight sipper.

I tells ya, folks, this noffense can lead you to a second or third nightcap.

Chad Beardingsley said...

My bad: It's Oak Leaf Sauvignon Blanc.

Spank Horst said...

I've seen that shit for two bucks at my walmartian,CB. I'm down with cheap booze.

Paul said...

Wow 36k at the game tonight to see Kershaw. Placed will be packed for free doll night tomorrow.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Damn, that was nasty.

Pleaaaaase don't waste it.

Chad Beardingsley said...

@rbnlaw: I know that there are more than a few big-and-tall men's shops here in The OC to serve The Panda's sartorial needs.

Orel said...

LAST CALL FOR RUNS

Paul said...

Back to back to back homeruns can't be that hard to do again right?

Chad Beardingsley said...

@Spank: It's surprisingly good and consistent. Nice acid structure and long, spicy finish. I've now started calling the Oak Leaf SB my baby Sasncerre.

Yes, I am a wine nerd. I admit my sin.

Chad Beardingsley said...

* Sancerre

Spank Horst said...

Fuck. You. Romo.

Steve Sax said...

This is not looking good guys

Paul said...

That was great.

Franklin Stubbs said...

An appreciation for booze in its myriad of forms is what makes us all one big happy alcoholic family here, CB.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Also: Fuck. This. Noise.

Dusty Baker said...

This game makes me want to plunger rape an orangutan.

Franklin Stubbs said...

So say we all, DB.

Steve Sax said...

@Chad: you're in the wine biz? We must talk.

Care to sponsor SoSG Fest III?!?!

Franklin Stubbs said...

I fully anticipate the solo shot followed by a Rivera groundout for maximum heartbreak here.

Chad Beardingsley said...

Mellis K

(cries)

Spank Horst said...

Let's. Go. Hanley.

Orel said...

HANley SOLO

Franklin Stubbs said...

1-for-1.

Now watch this.

Spank Horst said...

Stubbsy,you bastard. haha.

Paul said...

There you go Stubs.

Dusty Baker said...

Buh-bye, ball!

Chad Beardingsley said...

HamRam HR! AT LAST!

Steve Sax said...

So, it's not a shutout!

Bring up Loney!!!

Paul said...

Close your eyes Rivera!

MR.F said...

HanRam!

Spank Horst said...

I'd rather have Miguel from Bad News Bears bat than Rivera.

Paul said...

Now i have to endure a commercial break for a first pitch groundout?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh, shit. Forgot Hanley was 4th tonight!

Paul said...

Oh Dre up. Lefty up. Crap.

Orel said...

Real or fake?

Paul said...

2 strikes. Wither and die.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to T-bone Zito in WeHo tonight.

Chad Beardingsley said...

@Stubbs at 9:49 p.m.: That's why I've been a happy SoSG reader before today, and a happy (I fear) poster starting this afternoon.

@DB at 9:49 p.m.:That's a terrifying image.

Let's keep this going, Dre!

Orel said...

PGTUP

Franklin Stubbs said...

Different batter, same result.

Spank Horst said...

Fucking Dre.


BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Chad Beardingsley said...

WAAAAAHHHH!

(cries)

Paul said...

Oh well.

Steve Sax said...

It's ok boys, we are just getting them overly confident.

Nostradamus said...

@Stubbs @9:57

Nice effort, though. For a rook.

MR.F said...

Sigh.

Chad Beardingsley said...

What a waste of a nice start -- as well as a gorgeous mid-game catch -- by Kersh.

Crap on rye.

(swallows last sips of Cosmopolitan, tonight's nightcap)

Franklin Stubbs said...

Good game thread, bad result.
