Game 35 Thread: May 11 vs. Marlins, 6p

Psy Young (3-2, 3.71) vs. Kevin Slowey (1-2, 1.81)

Dodgers try to break an eight-game losing streak tonight, while the Fish try to get back-to-back wins for the first time this season. What a story line!

Readers ask, and we listen. Back to the boobies, BJ Killeen! We need all the mojo, juju, voodoo, superstition, etc. that you all can bring.  Karina, we need your Shoulder Gnome. We've got the :01 GT post time. Now is the time to switch avatars, SoSG readers. Bad GT puns: check.

Make it happen, folks. This is ON YOU! Eight is enough!

"There's a plate of homemade wishes on the kitchen window sill..."

more like: "There are bases full of Dodgers, who won't get the chance to score."

BJ Killeen said...

Fingers crossed, rabbits foot rubbed, candles lit, incantations chanted, pentagrams drawn Dunno what else to do.

Dusty Baker said...

Pentagrams always help.

Paul said...

Let's go Dodgers ole ole ole!

Alex said...

avatar switched

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

@alex that's the winning avatar, that's the piece we've been missing. I'm feeling good about a win tonight. Lets go Blue!!!

Neeebs said...

Lavenders blue dilly dilly. Lavenders Green.

wtf

Alex said...

@DBTP Jobu will gladly take credit for a Dodgers win tonight. However, I cannot be held responsible if Ryu breaks a leg and Cleveland goes on to win the World Series...

karen said...

On the sofa Vinny.

Ready for tonites W.

MR.F said...

I think we will win this game!

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!!!

Dusty Baker said...

I feel like writing on Tommy Lasorda's nuts.

Dusty Baker said...

Doble for E!

Dusty Baker said...

Skip scores E from 2B. Dodgers up 1-nil early.

karen said...

Hooray!! We have 1!!

Dusty Baker said...

Massive one-run lead, indeed.

Dusty Baker said...

I walk the dogs and come back to a Deez Nuts HR?

Had to be the pentagram that made this happen.

Steve Sax said...

Dee Gordon homers?

Fuck you, MLB.com Atbat. Quit screwing around.

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho rancho!

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Skip! Grand slam right here is what we need.

Dusty Baker said...

I was feeling good then I heard Capuano is pitching tomorrow.

Dusty Baker said...

Dropped ball in LF by Diaz means another run comes in. 3-0 Blue.

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho futiliendo!

rbnlaw said...

Rancho Whatthefucko.

rbnlaw said...

Booooooo




bs.

Paul said...

Took a shot of this drink called tequila for good luck purposes only.

Steve Sax said...

3-0 Dodgers, starting the bottom of the fifth.

I'm at a dinner party, gents and ladies, but will try to check in.

I'm also very drunk.

Steve Sax said...

Kemp, with that warning track power. Fly out fir out #1.

Steve Sax said...

Ethier 2-for-2? Who is playing the part of Ethier in tonight's lineup?

Steve Sax said...

Ethier gets a bloop single to go 3-for-3. wow.

Neeebs said...

@Saxy: I'm thinking the exact same thing about Kemp and warning track power. Something is amiss.

Alex said...

*refills Jobu's cup*

Dusty Baker said...

@Saxy

I'm thinking the very same thing about getting drunk.

karen said...

Dodgers up 5 zip in 5th.

The boobs are working.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

Or is it the pentagram?

karen said...

DB...Maybe a well placed pentagram tat on the boob??

Dusty Baker said...

Can we fire Maury Wills or whomever is doing the base-running instruction? This is 101 shit we are fucking up. First Kemp then Skip. Why are we running ourselves out of innings?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

That is rich!

And likely the subject of the PGT.

Dusty Baker said...

Dandy Sandy!

Thank you, Vinny, for walking us through 1962 and Koufax. Brought a tear to the eye.

Neeebs said...

@Dusty: You're not drunk already?

Hideo Nomo said...

I'mma go drink more. Seems to be working.

Dusty Baker said...

@neeebs

nope. tried earlier but failed. back on it now, tho.

Dusty Baker said...

Good work, Gnomes!

Dusty Baker said...

45

Paul said...

Kemp has his shoulder cut open. Gonzo had the same surgery and he said he will never be the same. Kemp needs to adjust but easier said than done.

Paul said...

Come on Dee! You are a power hitter now!

Paul said...

Enjoying a Grenache Blanc because I'm down with the Rhone Rangers.

Paul said...

Lets go Matty! Hit a homerun so we don't have to watch you run the bases!

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

That, or he weighs a buck oh five wet now.

Paul said...

Looks like I'm middle relief. *dips fingers in vaseline*

Dusty Baker said...

Which hand are you using for that, Paul?

Erin said...

Weird to be up five runs and still feel like we suck so badly.

karen said...

We're getting into those late, scary innings.

Paul said...

I'm a junk throwing lefty Dusty. Wait...

Erin said...

As I was trying to sign in, that became a four-run lead. Probably my fault.

Paul said...

Awesome catch!!

Orel said...

I'm full of Asahi and sake.

Steve Sax said...

5-1?! HOLY SMOKES?!

Paul said...

Did someone bring the champagne if so put it one ice! Or after a 8 game losing streak should we be drinking Boone's?

Orel said...

Do we have to put Dusty on GT duty from now on?

Orel said...

Eric Stephen ‏@truebluela 11s

Pitchers to begin LA Dodgers career with 8 games of 6 or more IP: Claude Osteen (1965), Don Sutton (1966), Hyun-jin Ryu (2013)

Paul said...

Thought Nomo would be on that list.

Orel said...

Wow, Tony Jackson is alive.

Paul said...

We have a formidable top 3 playoff rotation once Zach gets back. The problem is the rest of the team.

Orel said...

Ethier 4 for 4 so far. Talk about streaky.

Paul said...

Dre's found that swing!

Orel said...

They say it all starts with pitching. Kershaw-Greinke-Ryu could be solid for years to come.

Orel said...

URBIbe!

BJ Killeen said...

It appears that the contract I signed with that odd-looking guy with the pointy fingernails and cute little horns on his head is working. And I used the red pen he gave me!

Orel said...

Ethier limping in the dugout. Guess he's going on the DL next.

Orel said...

You sign whatever that guy wants, BJ.

Orel said...

WP scores Schu! 7-1!

karen said...

In the words of the great Chick Hearn, the jellos in the fridge jiggling...Maybe tonite, Chick!!

BJ Killeen said...

Don't jinx us Steiner!

BJ Killeen said...

Karen. You've seen our last innings. Don't close that door yet.

Orel said...

Ethier is still in the game.

BJ Killeen said...

Dbags and rocks lost. Gnats won.

Orel said...

Ethier with the running and diving catch. Guess he's okay.

BJ Killeen said...

Cruz and Gurrier? Oiy

Paul said...

Another great catch. Who are these guys?

Hideo Nomo said...

7-1? Pour me another!

Orel said...

Luis Cruz not letting tonight's offensive explosion affect him. GIDP.

karen said...

Everyone sit in the same spots and don't move.

Orel said...

Kemp may have a ten-game hitting streak, but he doesn't seem to be having good at-bats. Bad K there.

Steve Sax said...

Methinks I am too inebriated to do a PGT.

Orel said...

Karen will be by to strap everyone down.

Steve Sax said...

But it's a happy drunk state.

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm also too drunk to PGT.

Paul said...

Almost done with this bottle Vinny!

BJ Killeen said...

Sober up, boys. We deserve a happy PGT tonight.

Orel said...

With two out in the ninth and a six-run lead, Vin is already calling tomorrow the rubber game. Pretty cocky.

Alex said...

WE MAKE BLACK MAGIC PARTY!!!

Paul said...

The impossible dream revisited!

karen said...

What is this strange feeling of lightness in my heart??

Dare I say...Happiness?

Orel said...

Ha! Nice casual grab by Javy to end it.

Steve Sax said...

Guerra with a nonchalant grab to snag the last out

Steve Sax said...

Booooooooom!

Hideo Nomo said...

A..win?

Congrats, Quad! You get Orel!

Wait...

BJ Killeen said...

Groundhog Day is over! I'm crying happy tears. I never thought this day would come. Sniff sniff.

Paul said...

I'm being greedy but can we get two?

Orel said...

PGTUP!

Spank said...

Awoken from my self induced booze related coma,Vinny!
