Game 127 Thread: August 25 vs. Marlins, 6p


Clayton Kershaw (11-7, 2.89) vs. Josh Johnson (7-10, 3.73)

Yes, there have been some crazy baseball shenanigans going down in the last 24 hours, but do you know what else is crazy? Walking on the damn moon, that's what. I'm momentarily shedding my usual cocoon of snark to wish you godspeed, Mr. Armstrong. Sports are fun, but you were a hero and an inspiration, in the non-trivial sense.

As for the baseball part of this GT equation, you know all the excruciatingly documented details. All that remains is to go out and win games, and we look to be equipped to do just that. There's not much else to say. It's time for action, people.

You may now resume snark.

Ethier is a triple short of the cycle.

Jason said...

If Dre gets the cycle tonight, I'll run Spank's fish down the middle of downtown Seattle, naked.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I just cycled a triple in my shorts.

Dusty Baker said...

MDIL: Can't wait to watch that episode of GRIMM we have Tivo'd.

Dusty: We already watched Josh Johnson pitch, what could be more grim?

Jason said...

So, in hockey, there is the Gordie Howe hat trick - goal, assist and a fight. Shouldn't baseball have a Drysdale cycle, a hit batsman and a home run?

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

Ok, I am off everybody. I have effectively extended my Ripkeninan streak to two game threads in a row...I need hydration and rest to try and extend it tomorrow

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, I only counted two things Jason. *squints*

karina said...

epale everyone!

did i miss something? :D

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks for checking in GLG! Don't over-extend yourself.

Dusty Baker said...

I knew as soon as I said something negative re Cargo that our Karina would show up. It was a trap!

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

Thanks Dusty...and remember, I will be watching!!!

Orel said...

Steve Garvey ‏@SteveGarvey6

“@sosgsosg: Dodgers currently in negotiations to trade for Giancarlo Stanton. -SoSG Orel” he's worth just about anyone to get him.

Dusty Baker said...

@GLG

You scare the shit out of me, man. I just ran over and turned on the porch light.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Saw that too, Orel. i've been trying to parse who is fucking with who ever since.

Gagne's lucky glasses said...

Lol, Dusty @_@

Franklin Stubbs said...

The "Smiley Gagne" avi makes it extra creepy.

Orel said...

Holy shit, Jose Reyes just bunted a pitch that bounced in the dirt.

Dusty Baker said...

(whimpers)

Orel said...

Stubbs: Dad is winning, for sure.

MR.F said...

Vin with the cricket reference!

Jason said...

Carlos Lee = CarLee, right?

Dusty Baker said...

I think the dirt bunted it, then Reyes' bat interfered with the flight of the ball.

Orel said...

Snakes lose!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Matty finally makes an out.

Orel said...

Man, Gonzalez is 1 for 4!

Franklin Stubbs said...

But what a 1!

karina said...

@Dusty no, it wasn't that. It's just i was busy with moving stuff and talking to my brother who lives far away :$

Franklin Stubbs said...

*snatches 227 from DelinO's clutches*

Dusty Baker said...

Pack a lot of Blue, Karina!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Oh snap, Stubbs.

That was for that Punto post.

karina said...

@Dusty all my Dodgers clothes were packed first, even the Dodgers lucky shirt I can't wear in public.

Dusty Baker said...

Can't wait to see that shirt, K!

Franklin Stubbs said...

That was a bullshit walk, blue.

Orel said...

Seven strong for Clayton.

Orel said...

I too am intrigued by this unwearable Dodgers shirt.

Jason said...

Dre trying to break the penguin's record and make me streak this inning...

Orel said...

I'll say it again: That Captain Morgan knows how to party.

Orel said...

KC 9, BOS 9, top 12

Dusty Baker said...

Who would win in a fight between The Most Interesting Man In The World and Captain Morgan?

I think we have have just hit upon the next SoSG contest underpinnings.

Orel said...

Get ready to disrobe, Jason.

Orel said...

ALMOST

Orel said...

We want pictures, Jason!

Franklin Stubbs said...

A tie it is, then.

Orel said...

Andre's kinda streaky.

Jason said...

*disrobes and streaks anyway*

Congrats, Dre! Go get the Brooklyn record next.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Holy shit, gameday betrays me!

Orel said...

Does Rivera have braces?

Cliff Beefpile said...

I couldn't even get 10 straight hits on Bases Loaded on my Nintendo.

Dusty Baker said...

Jason is nekkid with a fish!

cc: Spanky

Jason said...

Rivera is wearing braces?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Speaking of Spanky, this thread is missing his (nude) presence.

Jason said...

Orel and I have the same HD feed.

Dusty Baker said...

Spank is on walkabout to Fresno-ish, I believe.

Orel said...

Vodka distilled in an airplane hangar: not impressive.

karina said...

Today, in 1964, Sandy Koufax had his tenth complete game of the seasn and his Dodger victory number 50, according to Sr. Jarrin

Orel said...

CG for Kershaw?

Dusty Baker said...

Is Kersh coming up to bat?

Jason said...

Kersh with a very impressive pitch count

Dusty Baker said...

Just re-calculated...our LHWG quotient just went down a lot.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Taco Bell, how far you've fallen.

Orel said...

PUNTO!

Franklin Stubbs said...

I agree with that. You don't take the risk for 7-2. Shutout, then maybe.

Franklin Stubbs said...

1.000 OBP!

Franklin Stubbs said...

Another Dre AB, maybe?

Dusty Baker said...

Didn't someone in the thread call 8-2 tonight?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Now we're piling on.

Dusty Baker said...

Or was that on tha Twitters.

Dusty Baker said...

I was wondering why Vin hadn't mentioned Neil Armstrong tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp makes me nervous when he regresses to this swing like fuck at everything phase.

Orel said...

Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal

Source: #Diamondbacks on verge of trading Saunders. Destination unknown at this time.

Orel said...

Televised public press conference after the game? Could be interesting?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Now I'm nervous.

Orel said...

"A lot of fun here at Dodger Stadium, and they lead eight to two. And they will be two games back of the Giants, unless the Marlins turn into whales." —Vin

Orel said...

Why Beli with a six-run lead?

karina said...

We make Titan party!

Franklin Stubbs said...

6-run Stanton shot here?

Franklin Stubbs said...

Party!

Orel said...

HYPGTUP!
