Game 140 Thread: Sept. 8 @ Giants, 1p

SoSG Fest III: as if we needed another reason to drink.

Chris Capuano (11-10, 3.63) vs. Matt Cain (13-5, 2.98).

How frustrating was last night's loss? I haven't felt so aggravated by the Dodgers since...Wednesday.

Anyhoo, here's how it's going for our Boys in Blue:

  • Shane Victorino, acquired to be our leadoff hitter, has a .315 OBP since joining the team and is now batting second.
  • Adrian Gonzalez, batting third, has 10 RBIs in 61 PAs as a Dodger.
  • Despite his claims to the contrary, Matt Kemp is playing hurt.
  • Our second-best starter and our closer are on the DL.
  • The rest of our pitching staff is getting minimal run support.

It's becoming increasingly apparent the wild card is our ticket into the playoffs. So we'll drink to that — because there's so little to toast, yet so much to drink about.

I wish Fred's Brim were in town.

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp out of lineup today, per Ken Gurnik.

Hideo Nomo said...

Let the "Should have rested Kemp on Wednesday" bitching commence!

Orel said...

Dylan Hernandez ‏@dylanohernandez

Matt Kemp will miss the remainder of the #SFGiants series. Undergoing contrast MRI on shoulder today.

Hideo Nomo said...

Well, fuckadoodledoo.

Fred's Brim said...

@Dusty - so does Fred's Brim. My liver needs to be taken behind the woodshed

Fred's Brim said...

This season has been so stupid. I bet without Matty in the lineup we score double-digit runs today. And probably still lose

NicJ said...

I hate this team.

rbnlaw said...

Drinking has commenced.

Ñeeebs said...

Margaritas at the Fest. Who cares if we suck.

Steve Sax said...

SoSG Fest is on! Six Sons in the house, plus Quadsevens, Neeebs, and rbnlaw!

Steve Sax said...

We are already about to lose!

Steve Sax said...

I hate the Giants.

Dusty Baker said...

"Wash your pubes, Buster!"
-SoSG Stubbs

Steve Sax said...

Neeebs and I both think Pubes was safe there...

rbnlaw said...

Drinking has commenced.

Hideo Nomo said...

Drinking is perpetual.

Steve Sax said...

Make up call there on Halney, for pubes.

Steve Sax said...

Dusty is drinking something green.

rbnlaw said...

I'm sticking with beer. Perpetual scares me.

Steve Sax said...

Shut up McCarver

Dusty Baker said...

It's blue, Saxy!

Mostly.

Steve Sax said...

Two innings, two DPs. Revenge of the Loney.

Fred's Brim said...

Are we 0-2 on SOSGFests?

Dusty Baker said...

DP.

I felt like I just got DP'd.

Dusty Baker said...

1-1, FB.

Steve Sax said...

FB, even Jason made it out for SoSG Fest II (Attack of the Uribes). You have to come out for IV: A New Third Baseman

Hideo Nomo said...

Uribe is never going away. They're gonna stick him in a Dodger Dog costume and have him dance on the Dance Cam.

karina said...

Dusty is drinking Blue Long Island Iced Tea!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Thank Batman for football tomorrow.

Dusty Baker said...

Hah, that was a good one Karina.

It's actually a margarita with blue caracao.

Hideo Nomo said...

Blue Curaçao is Kenley's nickname.

Fred's Brim said...

@Saxy I will be on the lookout for some droids

Ñeeebs said...

Nobody is paying attention to the crappy game. Bartender!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

@Neeebs: our hitters are especially guilty of that

Ñeeebs said...

@FB: I'm relying on you to keep me posted.

karina said...

well guys, hope you have fun! i will be off, my farewell party is about to start :)

Fred's Brim said...

have fun, karina! Remember, liquor after beer, full of cheer!

Ñeeebs said...

@Karina: Maricaibo's loss is our gain.

QuadSevens said...

Dos Equis and a margarita. Good times at the SoSG Fest!

Fred's Brim said...

@Neeebs our hitting has not wavered through 5

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm drunk!

Hideo Nomo said...

Bullshit. You're never drunk.

QuadSevens said...

That was a terrible call! 1st base ump, you're fired!!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm drunk with power!

QuadSevens said...

3rd base ump made up for the 1st base ump. I'll take it!

NicJ said...

Man, so many things wrong about what that announcer just said.

Ñeeebs said...

We scored a run. Only took us six innings.

Hideo Nomo said...

A RUN!!!!!!

QuadSevens said...

"We're not losing!"
-chanted by all at SoSG

Fred's Brim said...

let's give them the run back - we don't play well when we are tied

Alex Cora said...

Sorry I missed the festivities. Get drunk for me!

Ñeeebs said...

@AC: Thats not you under the table?

Fred's Brim said...

ahh that's better. Losing feels more natural

Fred's Brim said...

huh, what exactly happened there? Did they tag up after a line out to the pitcher?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

C'mon, Bob.

Fred's Brim said...

get him home, Bobby

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Thanks for the assist, Cain/Posey!

Fred's Brim said...

that's a Bobby Abreu at-bat. SABRly perfect, not that useful

Fred's Brim said...

wow - i'll take it!

rbnlaw said...

Thanks Matty!
Where's my beeer? (in honor of Neeebs)

Ñeeebs said...

Abreu is the future of the organization

Fred's Brim said...

trying to GIDP. We get another chance to fail with RISP

Fred's Brim said...

SIGH!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

I cannot believe that there hasn't been a single Neeebs mother joke all day.

So far.

Fred's Brim said...

This is when Belli gives up a double, then a homer, then strikes out the side on nine more pitches

Fred's Brim said...

is it because she's the bartender?

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm drunk with booze.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Nomo - But what's your caption?

Fred's Brim said...

a nasty local nasty storm has delayed the Mets game so Fox has switched over to our game. I get to watch us lose in real time

and just like that, Belli walks a guy

Fred's Brim said...

and just as quickly, I have muted it

Fred's Brim said...

how was that not a DP?

Fred's Brim said...

Belli's not happy

Fred's Brim said...

Is this when Pence finally gets us?

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Belli

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

GONZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Fred's Brim said...

AG!
NOW GET HIM HOME!!!

Ñeeebs said...

Orel just knocked over two tables and five drinks.

Fred's Brim said...

HANLEY!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That's the weakest Beat LA chant ever.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

HANLEYWOULD

Fred's Brim said...

Steiner is clearly watching the Fox broadcast. He might actually be home in LA calling the game

Fred's Brim said...

oh Hanley

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Batmandammit.

Fred's Brim said...

MOTA!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

SkyActiv Technology? Didn't they build the Terminator?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Steve Carrell, are you playing a homeless man in your next movie?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

*Carell

Fred's Brim said...

JUICE JUICE JUICE!

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Jesus Christ, what the fuck?!?!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck this shit, I'm out.

Fred's Brim said...

Matty looks sick, injured and/or sad

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Brandon, finish this off

Ñeeebs said...

Steve Sax said...

Fred's, we are toasting you now

Steve Sax said...

Seriously, we just toasted you

Ñeeebs said...

No, really 100

Ñeeebs said...

Now

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, Brandon, you can do this

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

QuadSevens said...

"Playoffs!"

Ñeeebs said...

Hideo Nomo said...

Basking in the afterglow of a good group dry-hump.

Orel said...

I DID NOT HAVE SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH THAT TABLE

Ñeeebs said...

@Orel, that was no table, that was the busboy.

Hideo Nomo said...

Things tackled by Orel In the last week:

-Sax
-A table

What am I missing?

Ñeeebs said...

On behalf of the commentators wing of the SOSG FEST, hearty thanks to the sons for hosting the drinks/grub get together.

QuadSevens said...

Big thank you going out to all the Sons for today's festivities. It was a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to doing it again.

Hideo Nomo said...

Hey, did Dusty steal a beer from Delino? It wouldn't be SoSG Fest otherwise.

Hideo Nomo said...

Mellis 2B
Victorino CF
Gonzalez 1B
Ramirez SS
Ethier RF
Cruz 3B
Rivera LF
Ajellis C
Capuano P

Because no one posted it.

rbnlaw said...

Cliff Beefpile said...

That was fun. Hearty thanks to all the Sons for organizing and the invite. Good to see/meet everyone and to enjoy the win!


Giants SUCK!

Steve Sax said...

I am still drunk

Hideo Nomo said...

Sax violated a direct order.

Hideo Nomo said...

Fuck the playoffs!!!

Wait.

What?

Really good meeting Marla today. That was him bringing the pitchers, right?

Ñeeebs said...

^Lol

Dusty Baker said...

Shout out to all the wonderful SoSG loyal readers, commenters, lurkers, assorted bastards, and random n'er do wells who made it out today. Good times were had by all. Mad love to all you mofos.

Spank Horst said...

I'm getting plastered in honor of my SoSG homies tonight. I was in the LA area earlier before the fest peeps but it was not meant to be. Next year though it is high priority.

Dusty Baker said...

The picture for this GT was eerily prescient.

rbnlaw said...

What are you doing up at this hour?

Orel said...

I had the craziest dream last night. Something about a table.

Ñeeebs said...

Slackers, all of you. Give you guys and open bar and you lose all concept of time and space. No PGT, no Sunday GT. It's like Spanky is now running the blog.

Ñeeebs said...

Don't make me go all Willie McCovey on you.

Dusty Baker said...

@Neeebs

NFL scoreboard watching post is up.

2:01 pm scheduled GT.

Hideo Nomo said...

Stubbs and Dusty hosted a live PGT at the venue.

And by "hosted a live PGT", I mean they kept drinking.

Ñeeebs said...

^LOL

Dusty Baker said...

Guilty as charged.
