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.

Steve Sax said...

Nice to see Cruz in there.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Vekrercek?

That's either a delicious pilsner or an eastern European small forward.

Chad Beardingsley said...

"Gee, are we going to talk about PEDs now that the Giants are in town?"

Which color, Stubbs -- nude, black or white?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Do they come in "Hobbit", CB?

Chad Beardingsley said...

I think they do, FS.

Vekrecek, BTW, sounds like it's the DNA twin of Crljenak Kastelanski, the Croatian name for Zinfandel.

Which, I think, I may partake of soon.

Or a vodka martini.

Hideo Nomo said...

RT @Dodgers: RT @psy_oppa: Bringing #GANGNAM STYLE to the @Dodgers - Giants game this evening!

WHAT THE WHAT?

Franklin Stubbs said...

PLEASE LET THIS BE SO!

Dusty Baker said...

@Stubbs at 4:05

Which Dylan song was that?

Dusty Baker said...

Can they also bring ganja style?

Steve Sax said...

Oppa gangnam styling all over Ashley Madison would go great about now.

With a vodka martini.

Dusty Baker said...

Can we get a crack reporter on the case of possible Gangnam Style at DS?

Ok, then can we get a Sons reporter?

Steve Sax said...

Grey Goose or Russian Standard Paltinum, preferred.

Steve Sax said...

Ha, "Sons reporter". That's some funny shit, Dusty

Hideo Nomo said...

RT @MyKBO: Happening in the fifth inning.

Chad Beardingsley said...

@Sax: Crown Russe. (Yep, I can hear you guffawing.) On a tight-as-John-Travolta-disco-pants budget, so Ruuse is the smoothest and best balanced vodka for the price.

Hideo Nomo said...

In his segment on the Marlins' bobblehead museum, Steve Lyons called the Joe Torre bobblehead Steve Garvey.

Easy enough mistake with the number, but still funny.

Franklin Stubbs said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Chad Beardingsley said...

In the kitchen, Vinny, uncorking a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.

Steve Sax said...

@Chad Beardingsley: I don't know the crown russe but I appreciate the fiscal conservatism... BevMo has a 1.75L Russian Standard bottle on sale for $24.99 if you're in their club. 2x the price of Russe, but still a deal.

Steve Sax said...

Ah shit, I'm not drinking yet!

Steve Sax said...

@Chad, so now I'm intrigued; what's your sauvblanc?

Spank Horst said...

Epale,borrachos!

FUCK THE GNATS!

Orel said...

Pagan leadoff double.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh, piss.

Orel said...

Sandoval sac fly. 1-0 Giants.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Damnation.

Orel said...

Mary Hart in the house!

Orel said...

Okay, one run. Could have been worse.

Spank Horst said...

Let's get that run back fuckers.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I can live with that, but we'd best not be dicking around from here on out.

Orel said...

Victorino gives it a ride but Blanco catches it at the warning track. DAMMIT

Spank Horst said...

Awww...BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Wow, it's sure popping off the bat, tonight.

Paul said...

Dammit! I almost liked you Shane.

Hideo Nomo said...

I Steinered that just a bit.

Spank Horst said...

That Bumgardner is a droopy mofo.

Orel said...

Back to work, Clayton.

Paul said...

Killed some birds.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'd like to see a little more patience, but it's not as if we weren't getting good contact.

Spank Horst said...

Ther's vodka everywhere. In the commercials ,in the GT, in my liver.

Paul said...

Madison and Buster. That Sounds like a cartoon about dogs.

Steve Sax said...

1-0 through 1. Not a good start. We are on pace to lose 9-0.

Steve Sax said...

@Paul: which one is Turner and which one is Hooch?

Steve Sax said...

Let's go Clayton

Paul said...

Giants station showing all the starlets at the game.

Orel said...

The curveball is working tonight.

Orel said...

1-2-3!

Spank Horst said...

I'm closing in on first place in fantasy baseball. Watch out Orel. I'm only 49 games behind.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That went more smoothly. Now bring me some gahdammuhfuhn RUNS

Paul said...

Nice Clay. Let's score some runs now.

Orel said...

We're making contact but everyone's getting just underneath the ball. Hanley the latest.

Orel said...

@Spank: Regular season's meaningless anyway. I'm looking forward to my second-round exit in the playoffs.

Spank Horst said...

lot's of flyballs so far. Maybe we can get a 9 inning accuscore prediction from Saxy on them.

Orel said...

We have a baserunner! On a HBP, of course.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I propose that "Fly balls" be Melky's new nickname.

Orel said...

Accuscore Game Forecast

Franklin Stubbs said...

Cochito!

Orel said...

Wow. Luis Cruz. Don't wake me up from this dream.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Do your thing, AJ.

Orel said...

C'mon, Writer Boy!

Spank Horst said...

Cochito's on fire.

Orel said...

DMMIT

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well, shit.

Spank Horst said...

BOOOOOOOOO

Orel said...

HOLY SHIT KERSHAW CATCH OF THE YEAR

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh HELL yeah!

Spank Horst said...

What a catch by the Kid!

Orel said...

There's your Gold Glove, Clayton!

Paul said...

Awesome catch!! Please don't do that again.

karina said...

epale everyone!

Orel said...

Kershaw leadoff single! He's singing GBA next.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Clay does it all!

Orel said...

EpaleK!

Orel said...

Dylan Hernandez ‏@dylanohernandez

Clayton Kershaw's walk-up song in the bottom of the third inning was "Cat Daddy."

Spank Horst said...

Hey K!

Orel said...

(googling cat daddy)

Spank Horst said...

Shit. Victorino you suck

Orel said...

Vic CS. Runs will be at a premium tonight.

karina said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Franklin Stubbs said...

What a waste.

Orel said...

MIA 9, ARI 2, bot 4

MR.F said...

GAHH

Paul said...

Well we are on pace to lose 3-0 now.

Franklin Stubbs said...

This game is flying.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Scutaro is an annoying little shit, ain't he?

karina said...

@Stubbs he is...he even played for Leones de Caracas, so it's double boooooooooo

Cliff Beefpile said...

Scutaro, isn't that when you pay your way out of military service?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Satisfactory.

Orel said...

Up jumps the Angel Pagan!

Orel said...

Even though Sandoval hit into the DP!

Orel said...

Cochito with the Gold Glove!

Franklin Stubbs said...

That's some nice glovin'.

Spank Horst said...

COCHITO!

I love this guy.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Sandoval could easily replace "Buff Love" in the Fat Boys.

Nice play by Cruz!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Time to wake up the beast mode, Matty.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That's a negatory.

Orel said...

Matty continues slumping.

Franklin Stubbs said...

BOOOOOOOOO

Orel said...

Man, Dagwood has our number tonight.

Paul said...

Fuck Dre looks so lost against this guy.

Steve Sax said...

Ashley has 6 Ks through four. He's rolling. Clearly, he is all set up for the win.

Steve Sax said...

Fuck the gnats!

Paul said...

Rivera needs to close his eyes and swing.

Steve Sax said...

Just saw the highlight of Clayton's catch. Wow.

Paul said...

Cruuuuuz.

Steve Sax said...

Cruz with a one-out singe! He's 2-for-2

Orel said...

Can someone other than Cruz show up tonight?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Sorry, Vinny, I disagree. I have more than enough hate for the Giants.

Orel said...

I love Vin so much right now. Transcribing.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Holy shit, that better have been a broken hit and run.

Paul said...

Buster guns down another bunny.

Least we got him to 80s pitches now.

MR.F said...

BLARGH!!!!!!!

MR.F said...

Cruz says "How do you know I'm showing up?!??!"

Franklin Stubbs said...

shit!

Steve Sax said...

Ok, now I'm really starting to get pissed off

Cliff Beefpile said...

oh shit! he was out!

Spank Horst said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Paul said...

Interesting tag by AJ.

Paul said...

Two runs seems like a lot with Matty slumping.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Unstoppable.

Alex said...

EPALEX

KERSHAW HIT

Franklin Stubbs said...

Now DON'T FUCK THIS UP!

Franklin Stubbs said...

What's shakin', Alex?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Ouch.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Clayton's starting to swing a pretty decent bat. Shades of Fernando.

MR.F said...

KERSHAW CAN'T DO IT ALL BY HIMSELF GUYS

Franklin Stubbs said...

That was close.

Paul said...

Fuck Vicster.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck you, Pence. Wild-eyed dickbag.

Franklin Stubbs said...

This is beginning to chap my ass.

Alex said...

Orel said...

BABIP's gotta even out sometime, right?

MR.F said...

Paul said...

Alex said...

Orel said...

This game bites so far.

Orel said...

Victorino steals one. Now they can walk Matty.

Alex said...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Come on dammit! SCORE!!!

Alex said...

Paul said...

What an awful swing.

MR.F said...

BLAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH

Orel said...

Victorino feels bad about that earlier CS. Steals third.

Orel said...

Whoops, I was behind.

FUCK

Paul said...

The Vicster needed to steal home.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck Don Larsen.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'm not feeling this game's mojo.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Gregor Samsa Blanco, sit your buggy ass right the fuck down!

Orel said...

2-0 Giants heading into the bottom of the 7th. Time to wake up, boys.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Runs, goddammit.

Alex said...

MR.F said...

If nothing else, let's get TopBabyGirl'sName out of here this inning.

Alex said...

Franklin Stubbs said...

Only if it comes with rum in it.

Alex said...

stubbs, streets ahead my friend

Franklin Stubbs said...

That was a pretty sad looking box score.

Alex said...

ALRIGHT BOYS SACK DA FUG UP!!!

Spank Horst said...

Shit . i abandoned the GT. Somebody spank me.

Alex said...

I know some of the Sons are into that stuff, SPank

Franklin Stubbs said...

ugh.

Alex said...

+1 for the avatar BTW

Spank Horst said...

Can we get a base hit up in dis bish?! And i don't mean freebase fools.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fat Panda!

Alex said...

#lolzfatpanda

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well, if we lose, at least will have an amused chuckle at a fat guy chasing a little white ball.

Orel said...

Sandoval error gives us an extra out. How will we waste it?

Spank Horst said...

Kung Fu Puto just gave us some freebase with that error.

Orel said...

Rivera pops up. Shock. Save us from ourselves, Cruz!

Alex said...

loney=rivera

Franklin Stubbs said...

At least our best hitter is coming up.

(cries)

Alex said...

CRUZ!

Orel said...

Six outs left.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh dear, we're still fucked.

Paul said...

An error and two singles by the Pitcher and we can't even make a close attempt to score.

Alex said...

apparently they don't read SoSG in the dugout as they ignored our plea for RUNs...

(pours)
(drinks)
(cries)

rbnlaw said...

I am thoroughly frustrated by this offensive diaplay.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Make them pay for letting that fucker hit.

rbnlaw said...

Need to get this pagan out.

Done.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Uribe heard us, but he's got a diet with a lot of cheese content, so he's probably out.

Franklin Stubbs said...

GET THAT MAN A WIN, DAMN YOU!

Spank Horst said...

i make a plea for runs.

(pleas)

MR.F said...

Kershaw should bat for himself, even if he's done pitching for the night.

Orel said...

A's trade for Stephen Drew.

Spank Horst said...

Mr.F with a new outfiled position. The DP Designated Pitcher.

Paul said...

Fuck urine is on deck.

Paul said...

If AJ gets on please pull Uribe back.

Franklin Stubbs said...

(cries)

Franklin Stubbs said...

Just fuck you, Scutaro. Fuck. You.

Orel said...

Ajellis tags one, Scutaro spears it. Just the kind of night it's been.

Spank Horst said...

Damn you Scutaro. Damn you to hell.

Paul said...

He made that look dramatic.

Orel said...

Dylan Hernandez ‏@dylanohernandez

Juan Uribe pinch hits for Clayton Kershaw, gets booed.

Orel said...

Why isn't Bills hitting here?

Chad Beardingsley said...

Let's hope Urine gets things flowing.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Asshole.

Spank Horst said...

Fuck you Urine you piece of crap.

Paul said...

That was crap.

MR.F said...

Urine K's. Nobody is surprised.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Tell Dylan H. I'm booing now.
