Game 7 Thread: April 9 @ Padres, 3:30p


Get it? Wrecked home opener?

Josh Beckett (0-1, 4.50) vs. Clayton Richard (0-1, 14.54)

It may be April 9th, but it's still Opening Day somewhere! Today that somewhere is San Diego. The Dodgers are looking to wreck the Padres' home opener for the second year in a row. Last year's matchup featured Matt Kemp's first home run of the season. I say it happens again today.

Looking at the ERAs alone, this doesn't look like a dazzling pitching matchup, but their Clayton has managed to give us fits and tantrums in the past. Here's hoping the suddenly-resurgent Dodger offense makes him think, "I'm out of my league."



Weird start time today, kids! Better blow off that afternoon meeting!

That looks more like a classroom lockset to me, Gnomes.

Hideo Nomo said...

Shh. Just go with it.

Hideo Nomo said...

^ What Dusty says to everyone pre-dry-hump.

Orel said...

Because he's a gentle humper.

Hideo Nomo said...

Currently commenting from inside the afternoon meeting that I couldn't blow off.

Alex said...

Neeebs said...

Check that Uribe is a tub of lard.

Hideo Nomo said...

NOPE

Alex said...

PISS

BJ Killeen said...

Urine dribbles...hahahaha

Hideo Nomo said...

Derp.

Franklin Stubbs said...

On public transportation, Vinny!

Hideo Nomo said...

OH, it's THAT Beckett today. Good to know.

Wicks said...

We are filthy rich right? Why haven't we cut Uribe? What a waste of a roster spot.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Seriously. That guy knows where the bodies are buried.

Paul said...

In the end it will only be Uribe and cockroaches.

Paul said...

Someone get him some fried chicken! Or get me some!

Hideo Nomo said...

Maybe Dodger Dogs are people and Uribe found out.

(I'd still eat them. If he left me any.)

Franklin Stubbs said...

Could be a long afternoon. I'm glad we've got other options if Becket's arm keeps falling off.

Emo Spank said...

Fuck yeah! I get home and he game is on Fox SD. Woohoo Mofos!

Emo Spank said...

oh yeah

FUCK YOU URINE! YOU SACK OF SHIT.

Hideo Nomo said...

Man, nothing gets Twitter love like Uribe fat jokes.

Emo Spank said...

nice catch,crawdude

Alex said...

I like this Crawford guy

Franklin Stubbs said...

If Twitter had a collective personality, it would be that of Nelson Muntz, so I can see how that might be.

Emo Spank said...

crawdude with a hit but gets picked off.dummy

Alex said...

Not so much when he's picked off...

Emo Spank said...

no mo hedley but there's a jerko

Emo Spank said...

ajellis lost the ball in the shadows but umpire calls batter interference.

Emo Spank said...

mattingly sucks dirty ass. why come he has urine batting before ethier is an idiot move.

Emo Spank said...

goddamn this pina colada tastes like the way my high school gym socks smelled.

Emo Spank said...

agonzo with a hit. let's do this.

Alex said...

WHAT?!

Paul said...

Whaaaaaa?

Wicks said...

HOLY URIBE!!!

Emo Spank said...

well fuck me. urine with a two run homerun.

Neeebs said...

Not really a tub of lard, I meant YARD

BJ Killeen said...

His ears were burning.

Alex said...

Wouldn't have been a HR last year...

#Justsayin

Paul said...

Move in the fences for Uribe at all parks!

Ryan said...

Did Juan Uribe really just hit a HR or is my Yahoo Gamecast messing with me???

Emo Spank said...

sellers with a hit. this inning is huge.

Paul said...

Nice Bunt!!!

Paul said...

Uribe's first homerun since the Nixon Administration.

Paul said...

Mark Sweeney is all over PETCO. Please don't let Ned find him.

Orel said...

uRIBE

Emo Spank said...

jerko needs to put a little more wrist on his bat swing. just saying.

Emo Spank said...

hedley

Emo Spank said...

beckett seems to be doing alright now.

Paul said...

Becks settling down or the Padres realizing they are the Padres.

Paul said...

What spank said.

Emo Spank said...

kemp double

Orel said...

Matty double!

Paul said...

Here comes our hero.

Emo Spank said...

kemp on third after agonzo sac fly. urine up,that fucking mutt.

Paul said...

Fear The Uribe.

Emo Spank said...

wow. urine walks. come on dre day.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Failure to make an out two ABs in a row is somewhat surprising.

Emo Spank said...

don't get picked off at first base,bish!

Alex said...

Vinny just said "town full of beans" in regard to San Diego...

Emo Spank said...

fuck

Alex said...

That would have been a HR last year...

Orel said...

Beckett allows his second homer of the day.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Just as I was about to comment about "at least being tied". Back to my regularly scheduled complaining.

Emo Spank said...

a little weird listening to dick enberg announcing a baseball game. kind of like listening to vin do a football game back in the day.

Emo Spank said...

i have no idea why come stone cold steve austin is the padre color commentator.

Paul said...

Nice Ellis. Perfect pitch to throw it.

Paul said...

Way back in the day, my dad was spiked covering the base like Sellers and he did get stitches.

Paul said...

Well when does Uribe hit?

Emo Spank said...

lots of weed smokin happening out there at petco's grassy knoll.trust me.

Alex said...

Cause Austin 3:16 said so, Spank!

Paul said...

Someone say weed? Still need some fried chicken btw.

Emo Spank said...

here's another great idea.let's swing at the first pitch.fuck it.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Grown men named Skip are not to be trusted.

Paul said...

Le sigh, if the only runs we score are off a Uribe homerun I am still considering it a shutout.

Emo Spank said...

can you smell the rock that LT is smoking?

Paul said...

Who is this lefty pitching for us?

Emo Spank said...

cap! my man from last years fantasy team.

Paul said...

On SD feed I didn't get past "well Dick there has been a rash..." In that field update.

Paul said...

And they really love the improvements at the park. Really. They really do...

Emo Spank said...

i didn't hear that rash update. too busy buzzing on this strong pina colonic.

Paul said...

I think I saw Dusty's twin brother.

Emo Spank said...

dude is pitching to mellis as if mellis is babe ruth

Alex said...

3-3

Emo Spank said...

orale agonzo

Alex said...

Couple of monkeys trying to fuck a football on the left side of the infield...

Paul said...

Those useless bunts.

Alex said...

Fuck you Kotsay

Hideo Nomo said...

Razzle frazzle.

On the other hand, the song from the game thread was played on the Dodger radio broadcast coming out of a break a couple innings ago.

So there's that.

Emo Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Alex said...

Fuck it, throw at all of them...

Emo Spank said...

DAMN YOU LOCK JAW. #BELIFUCK

Alex said...

Cap could have gone some more...

Hideo Nomo said...

YAY PACOZ!

Emo Spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Emo Spank said...

seeing punto,mehllis and hairston on the mound during the pitching change in a late inning situation is like having a bad case of the shits only worse.

Emo Spank said...

bunt(s)

Emo Spank said...

Alex said...

Emo Spank said...

Alex said...
