Game 9 Thread: April 11 @ Pads, 7p

Zack Greinke (1-0, 0.00, 1 mention on "The Simpsons") vs.
Jason Marquis (0-1, 3.00, 0 mentions on "The Simpsons").

It was only one start, but Greinke's first outing as a Dodger inspired those of us who have been dreaming of someone to join Clayton Kershaw as the Dodgers' lethal left-right pitching punch. Of course facing the Pirates and Padres isn't a bad way to get started. Welcome back to the NL, Zack.

If Greinke does to the Friars what he did to the Bucs, the Dodgers can win their second straight series. But the bats will have to stop wasting so many damn opportunities with men in scoring position. We have confidence in Zack. The bats? Let's just say we need a little more convincing.

And don't even get us started about the bullpen. After Tuesday's implosion, the supposedly sturdy trio of Beli, Kenley & League gave up five singles and a double for two runs in three innings last night. Enough with the heart-attack pitching, guys.

TiqIQ's job is to find the best deals out for you on the market and you may want to check out GoTickets for the Dodgers schedule

I predict Kemp will break out tonight

karen said...

The first thing out of Jim Watson's mouth is about pods late inning rally. :( :(

I'm scared.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I predict Coco Loco will break out of Coalinga State Hospital tonight. Neeebs best have his head on a swivel.

karen said...

AGonzo from Tijuana? What a great place to be from.

Steve Sax said...

Still at my desk at work, Vin!

Steve Sax said...

Mattingly is wearing the hoodie again. He is such a hipster!

Steve Sax said...

Frisco beat the Cubs, albeit only by a run (7-6)

Steve Sax said...

Only Atlanta has allowed fewer runs this year than the Dodgers (22; ATL has allowed 18)

karen said...

Watson sounding a little Stiener-esque trying to say "Carl Crawford"

Steve Sax said...

Crawford with a leadoff base hit to left-center.

Spank said...

i heart crawford

Orel said...

I like this new guy Yasiel Crawford.

Spank said...

a little brush back pitch to Kemp.

Steve Sax said...

Whoops, I might have talked too soon. Kemp missed a slider on a 1-2 count and Ks, swinging.

Man on first, two out

Orel said...

A-GONE!

Steve Sax said...

BOOM! A-Gon stroked a HUGE shot to right!

2-0 DODGERS

Spank said...

A GONE ZO!!!!

Steve Sax said...

Wow that shot was monstrous. And I'm not just talking about the fence having moved in. Wow.

Hideo Nomo said...

Home run by my BTS pick!

Alex said...

@Nomo

We're both up, I picked Crawdaddy

Steve Sax said...

Cruz strands Ethier and Jellis.

2-0 Dodgers after half an inning

karen said...

CRUUUZZZ

Orel said...

Siddown, Jerkface!

Orel said...

That double is a direct result of Greinke getting squeezed by the ump.

Orel said...

AMAZING camerawork on the A.J. Ellis foul ball catch!

Orel said...

Ajellis single! Cruz single!

Orel said...

Full count to Sellers....

Orel said...

RANCH-O ARDIEND-O

Orel said...

Balsley

Orel said...

Help your own cause, Zack!

Orel said...

Orel said...

Zack FPS, bounces out.

Hideo Nomo said...

C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER!

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Orel said...

Crawford lets it fly to the second baseman. Just keeps getting better with this guy.

QuadSevens said...

He can hit, he can throw, he can crow!

Orel said...

Greinke cruising.

QuadSevens said...

Vegetable goes down swinging.

BJ Killeen said...

Gnats won. Damn

QuadSevens said...

Top of the lineup for us. Lets do some damage boys!

BJ Killeen said...

Gnats won. Damn

QuadSevens said...

K and a fly out. Kemp up now.

QuadSevens said...

Kemp first pitch swinging again.

QuadSevens said...

Kemp with a single to left. I'll take it.

Orel said...

Two years ago that's a homer. Tonight it's a single. As Vin said, Matt'll take it.

Orel said...

Damn! AGon's shot foul by inches.

QuadSevens said...

AGon hits one just foul down the left field line. Damn.

QuadSevens said...

AGon staying alive.

QuadSevens said...

And then he strikes out.

Orel said...

KKKK

Orel said...

Greinke pitches with surgical precision.

karen said...

Vinny talking about names when Jerko was up. Great story about his high school friend "Mac".

Orel said...

Nick Hundley is killing us.

Orel said...

WP scores a Padres run. Not so surgical there.

QuadSevens said...

Someone tell Ellis to use his body!

karen said...

Nooo Zack. Not cool.

Orel said...

Damage limited. 2-1 Dodgers.

Paul said...

I know that was a wild pitch but does AJ know how to follow the ball with his body?

karen said...

I love it when one of the guys has a Bobblehead night and their not playing.

Paul said...

Coco Loco has Neeebs in his trunk btw. He called me asking for his drumsticks....

Paul said...

Swing on the first pitch after a walk.

Paul said...

You would think being in Los Angeles the Dodgers would have better tv promos for their upcoming games.

Paul said...

Marquis pinch hitting for Marquis.

karen said...

Wow. That was very close.

Hideo Nomo said...

C'mon mang, one more out.

Hideo Nomo said...

Wheeeee!

Orel said...

Greinke at 82 pitches through five innings.

karen said...

Vinny talking about Venable having "No balls and 2 strikes". I remember hearing someone say "If you have no balls you have more then 2 strikes".

Orel said...

Karen working blue! Love it!

Orel said...

Grizzly Cashner

Everybody looking forward to seeing Brandon League protect a 2-1 lead?

Alex said...

GET YOU SOME!!!

Orel said...

WTF? Quentin rushes Greinke after a non-intentional HBP.

Paul said...

Protect the skinny ass pitcher!

Orel said...

Matty's hot!

Spank said...

fuck yeah!!

killKillKILL

Orel said...

Way to absorb the hit with your non-throwing arm, Zack!

Paul said...

What the fuck kind of charge was that?

Hideo Nomo said...

What the living fuck? I just went out to Target. Had to hear all this on radio.

karen said...

I'm lovin' the brotherhood here.

Paul said...

Fuck!!!!

Hideo Nomo said...

HAIRSTON GONE BANANAS?!

BJ Killeen said...

Best game ever. AJ gotta choke a bitch???

QuadSevens said...

This is intense! Love to see the fire, but this is nuts!

Spank said...

haha. fucking Greinke. telling Quinton if he wanted pedo.

BJ Killeen said...

Urine, sit on a Padre!

Paul said...

Uribe is tired!

Orel said...

Did you see the replay of Zack getting charged? He was all WTF?

Orel said...

Capuano in for Greinke.

Orel said...

Greinke taken out with an injury. Cap gets all the time he wants to warm up. Looks like Quentin & Kemp are ejected.

Paul said...

Vinny just said Padres suck so they have nothing to lose.

Spank said...

Fox SD is replaying the hell out of the fight.They even sent out for Al Alberts and Sean O Grady to color commentate.

Orel said...

Then it's true!

Dusty Baker said...

THROW AT THESE COCKSUCKERS!

Dusty Baker said...

Oh, wait, there was a fight? I didn't even know it when I posted my last comment.

QuadSevens said...

Ellis needs to watch Major League and take notes.

Paul said...

Fuck.

Spank said...

well that sucked

Paul said...

Yeah AJ can't block much tonight including Padres.

Orel said...

Tie game. Shit.

QuadSevens said...

Seriously! He should have been in front of Quentin.

Orel said...

Stephen Caver ‏@ATXDodger 2m

Amazing. RT @wilhud Quentin has been holding onto this for 4 years. @FeelinKindaBlue @ChadMoriyama @truebluela http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20090408&content_id=4169006&vkey=recap&fext=.jsp&c_id=mlb …

Hideo Nomo said...

This is a loss, unless the bats are somehow fired up all of a sudden.

Fuck.

Orel said...

Nic Jongeling ‏@NicJongeling 2m

@FeelinKindaBlue Yeah, this one feels like a loss. Crowd is into it now. Dodgers still aren't hitting.

Orel said...

Jon Morosi ‏@jonmorosi 1m

Tweet from Oney Guillen: “greinke has hit carlos many many times ... told me long long time ago. if he does it again im going for him.”

Orel said...

But we got CHEMISTRY

Orel said...

The ol' 8-4 DP to get them out of the inning!

Paul said...

Nice break.

karen said...

mellis conversing and smiling at pod over at 2nd.

This could be a problem with me.

rbnlaw said...

Goddamn fucking piece of shit camp wearing pussy motherfuckers are going to cheat their way to getting one of aces out and hurt this team the fucking puke eating expansion team of washed out never was career minor league dickheads.

I do not like the team from the whale's vagina.

rbnlaw said...

Above post should read "camo wearing."
My auto correct was developed in San Diego.
Assholes.

Alex said...

^ poetry

Orel said...

Damn, rbn bringin' it!

rbnlaw said...

And this asswipe talks to his hat.
Loony tune glandular disorder motherfucker.

Paul said...

Never sign up for shit camp. ,

Orel said...

karen said...

Yeah rbn!

Orel said...

Eric Stephen ‏@truebluela 1m

Ejections we know of: Carlos Quentin, Matt Kemp, Jerry Hairston Jr.; still unknown if Zack Greinke was ejected

rbnlaw said...

I goats more. NO ONE FUCKS WITH OUR PITCHERS. Especially some team that plays in a former warehouse next to the airport.

Orel said...

Andre singled off a righty!

QuadSevens said...

That article from '09 sheds some good light on Quentin.

Orel said...

hate hateHATE!

Dusty Baker said...

I think RBN just wrote the PGT.

QuadSevens said...

Loving the fire from RBN!

rbnlaw said...

Shit camp is where I learned to cuss. It's also the theme for the next puzzle.

rbnlaw said...

Fuck my San Diego auto correct. Gots becomes goats?
Don't fuck with me North Tijuana.

Dusty Baker said...

Pitchers are rarely ejected for defending themselves against a charged mound.

Quentin is active league leader in HBPs...

Orel said...

Fight video narrated by Vin posted on main page.

Paul said...

jack one Cruz.

Dusty Baker said...

Can we be tentmates in shit camp, RBN? We can look at dirty mags by flashlight and drink Night Train after taps.

Paul said...

Los Angeles LOBS

Franklin Stubbs said...

Oh, balls.

Orel said...

Karen had something to say about that, Stubbs.

QuadSevens said...

So will the next brawl be on Jackie Robinson day?

Orel said...

Ha ha, looks like it.

Orel said...

Yup. Feels like a loss.

BJ Killeen said...

Now is not the time to fall apart....

Orel said...

Dylan Hernandez ‏@dylanohernandez 43s

No word of Zack Greinke being ejected, meaning he probably left because of an injury.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Fuck, not guerrier.

karen said...

I'm getting scared.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'm hoping it's just precautionary with Greinke.

Paul said...

If he sucks send him to shit camp to work on his slider.

Paul said...

No drama. I like it.

Fred's Brim said...

Cnut motherfuckers

rbnlaw said...

Woooo! Shit camp for us, DB.
Wedgies for madre gear wearing weenies.

Fred's Brim said...

I am sure this was discussed before but when did Guh-Rear change his number to 54? I always though 55 was in bad form

Spank said...

i heart rbn

Steve Sax said...

And heeeeeeeere's urine

BJ Killeen said...

Greinke had a small cut on the side of his nose that was bleeding. That's what I saw.

Steve Sax said...

@FB: I think guerrier changed to give 55 to someone else

Hideo Nomo said...

Ramon Hernandez has 55 now.

Steve Sax said...

Jon Chapper says they won't comment on Greinke until after the game.

Which means Uribe may still have time to get in a meal.

Orel said...

MOTHERURIBE!

Steve Sax said...

Holy shit, urine!

Paul said...

Holy Urine!

karen said...

URINE (???)

QuadSevens said...

This game is bananas!

Alex said...

Golden Showers For Everyone!!

Orel said...

So. Weird game.

Fred's Brim said...

Piss Party!

Steve Sax said...

All right, Uribe. You earned a meal there.

(Toasts his Sierra Nevada to the TV)

BJ Killeen said...

Urine!!

karen said...

I know I've said it before but please undulge me one more time.

Kid K really needs to do something about the Abe Lincoln beard.

Spank said...

Franklin Stubbs said...

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

rbnlaw said...

Juan motherfucking Uribe. Take that shitstains.

BJ Killeen said...

Shut up San Diego. Eat shit Ron Burgundy. Ain't no classy in that city.

Paul said...

He wasn't crying Vinny that was just gas.

karen said...

Aw Vinny, don't tell me things that are going to make me feel all sensitive about Juan Uribe. He still wears black and freakin' orange under his clothes.

Spank said...

oh no,not lockjaw.

Orel said...

I hear ya Karen. But frankly Clayton can rock any look he wants.

Orel said...

No Kenley in the 8th?

karen said...

@rbn..."Take that shitstains"...You are hot tonite!

Pride of Dong said...

You KNOW kemp is mad he's below urine!

karen said...

Vinny saying League threw 34 pitches last night and that may change things.

Can a girl dream?

karen said...

Dorky looking pods fans sitting behind the plate.

Geek wearing a pod cap backwards looks like he's trying way to hard.

Pride of Dong said...

Some would say, he's pissed

Orel said...

Paco!

Spank said...

man i wish the umps had ejected the Padre announcers. they lulled me to sleep earlier and now they are doing it again.

Fred's Brim said...

Lockjaw or Trap Jaw? either way, he did a nice job

karen said...

Epale FB!!

Orel said...

Whew, Paco!

Spank said...

Truth: I have yet to hear Vin call a game,inning or even one batter so far this season.i know i suck. y;all can kick my ass now.

Fred's Brim said...

Nice work, Tu-Paco

Paul said...

BJ Killeen said...

rbnlaw said...

Green Flash Imperial IPA. And a big FUCK YOU to our neighbors from the south.

karen said...

I love it when a player looks to the heavens when they do something good.

I know. I'm such a sap.

Steve Sax said...

@karen: yeah, because the gods really wanted that base hit single, too.

Steve Sax said...

(I kid)

Orel said...

Prepare for an asskicking, Spank!

Steve Sax said...

"Jerko jerko jerko"

Franklin Stubbs said...

I like that there green flash

Steve Sax said...

One really shouldn't pop fly on a hit and run

Paul said...

Why don't players point to the ground and curse out the devil when they K?

Paul said...

I'd really like some Geico here guys.

Orel said...
