Game 73 Thread: June 22 @ Padres, 4p

Zack Greinke (3-2, 4.22) vs. Edinson Volquez (5-5, 5.84).

FIVE THINGS MORE FUN THAN WATCHING THE DODGERS RIGHT NOW

  • 1. Clicking through every last one of Yasiel Puig's Instagram photos.
  • 2. Preparing for a Paula Deen telethon.
  • 3. Thinking about what moves Ned Colletti will make at the trade deadline.
  • 4. Attending an After Earth viewing marathon.
  • 5. Watching the Angels lose.

Hello, my name is Kristian and I met one of the "Sons" last night at the Dodger/Padre game. It was good talking too you and your family. Thank you for introducing me to your blog, it is great! If I can, I'll post a picture of my Vin Scully ball later.

Watching Japan v Mexico in futbol is much more interesting than watching the Dodgers play baseball.

@BillShaikin: Carlos Quentin is in #Padres lineup vs Zack Greinke and #Dodgers. First Greinke-Quentin meeting since April brawl.

Dusty Baker said...

I want Quentin's head on a fucking pike.

Cc: AC, Sax

Hideo Nomo said...

A fish?

Paul said...

I think I'll make a 2013 Dodgers video game app.



Paul said...

Pikes are small but feisty. No wait that's a bluegill.

Hideo Nomo said...

Paul: Then Hanley can play it!

Spank said...

hi

Orel said...

What's that? Tony Soprano has died?

karina said...

épale everyone!

you know Orel, thinking about what Colletti is gonna do at the trade deadline is masochism, so I'd rather watch the Dodgers play

Hollandsworth said...

Nothing is worse than watching an After Earth marathon. I know, because I had to sit through it.

And yeah, Orel. Couple days ago of a heart attack, I think.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Watching dodgers play gave tony soprano a heart attack

Orel said...

Épale, Karina!

@Hollandsworth: What was the thinking there? Shyamalan fan? Couldn't resist the pull of two generations of Smiths?

Paul said...

Maybe the Dodgers can lure Billy Beane with lots of cash. He may own part of the A's but that means he owns part of the sewage.

Steve Sax said...

AGon Ks, Hanley grounds out on the first pitch to strand Puig at first in the first inning.

Don Mattingly excels at teaching the team how to strand runners

Hideo Nomo said...

So, uh, why didn't they just release Harang?

Paul said...

That was fun. Now on to more sorrow.

Dusty Baker said...

Epale, Karina!

Steve Sax said...

Quentin K swinging in the first inning

Steve Sax said...

Way to go Zack

Orel said...

Must be annoying for the Padres.

Bill Shaikin ‏@BillShaikin 7m

Loud -- really loud -- boos for Quentin in 1st AB. Dodgers fans representing.

Orel said...

Édinson

Orel said...

Bill Shaikin ‏@BillShaikin 43s

Vin Scully is walking thru press box while someone else is broadcasting #Dodgers on TV. This is not right.

Orel said...

Giants beat the Marlins on — guess what? — a bloop single.

Paul said...

Get a hit Urine.

Orel said...

Shitty baserunning by Andre.

Paul said...

Wow we are dumb on the bases.

Steve Sax said...

Ether you fucking idiot, why would you run on a comebacker?

WHY DON'T THESE DODGERS GIVE A SHIT?!

Steve Sax said...

AJ Ellis sure is watching a lot of called strike threes.

Orel said...

A.J. ends the inning on a backwards K. Sums up the entire season.

Paul said...

AJ looks bad at the plate again.

Orel said...

FORD KEYS TO THE GAME
Dodgers: don't give away outs
Padres: just show up

BJ Killeen said...

Blah blah blah..this is all I hear from the announcers. We want Vinny!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Any recommendations from the Sons or readers, I'll be making my first trip to Petco on the 13th of July against the gnats. Those park seats are the cheapest, but is it all little kids? Worth it to just sit in the upper decks?

Orel said...

Just cover yourself in blood, you will be left alone.

Orel said...

Hanley appears to be wearing a rosary around his neck.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I cover myself in blood before any game I attend, home or away.

Orel said...

The pitcher with the 5.84 ERA has retired seven Dodgers in a row.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I don't care for this Papelbon to the Dodgers rumor. At all.

Fred's Brim said...

@Cliff - please say that's a joke

Orel said...

Don't worry, Ned will only trade Puig to get him.

Orel said...

And pay all of Puig's $42M contract.

Orel said...

See, Zack? That's revenge.

Cliff Beefpile said...

@FB: I wish I was kidding. But he's overpriced, he sucks, he's old, and he's an asshole. He's definitely Ned's kind of guy.

Orel said...

KKKKKKK

Orel said...

Save your fork, there's hockey!

Paul said...

Before met us hitters had a.280 average against this pitcher and .312 in June.

Paul said...

Urine is our most disciplined hitter.

Spank said...

i still love Paula Deen. I don't give a fuck if she's the leader of the KKK. I'll butter her biscuits any day.

Orel said...

Two on for Zack. Pretend the ball is FCQ's head!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Actually, I think Greinke is our most disciplined hitter.

Orel said...

She could use your support right about now, Spank.

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO! Good job, Zack.

Paul said...

Good call Cliff.

Fred's Brim said...

ok Skip, how are you going to fuck this up?

Orel said...

Schu did his best to hit into a DP. 1-0 Dodgers.

karina said...

is it right to want to chew Quentin's head off?

Paul said...

Fuck skip.

Dusty Baker said...

Really, lilly white shitheads sitting behind home plate? You have to point out to TV viewers that you're happily drinking Coors Light?

Orel said...

Bad call gives us a run. That's our karma...for the entire season.

Orel said...

@Karina: Not only is it right, it is your moral imperative.

Orel said...

Puig hacking

Cliff Beefpile said...

After Jerk-O, Brad Boxburger is my second favorite name in MLB.

Fred's Brim said...

that is the best we could have hoped for in that situation

Dusty Baker said...

Puig has started to take on the Kemp role of wildly swung at, unproductive outs.

BJ Killeen said...

Puig you're starting to look like the rest.

Paul said...

Still no hits against one of the worst starting pitchers in baseball.

karina said...

After the college World Series, Colletti should hire UCLA bullpen pitchers

karina said...

GONZO!

Hollandsworth said...

We should just re-sign Grudzielanek
and get it over with already.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Hit(s)!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Sign Grudz ONLY if Jody Reed isn't available.

BJ Killeen said...

Watch Coletti sign Valverde...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Ciriaco with a damn fine Cruz impression.

Fred's Brim said...

heh mercy runs

Cliff Beefpile said...

Holy cats! A 4-0 lead, Greinke on the mound and I'm still unsure if we're gonna win this game. FUCK YOU, 2013 Dodgers!

karina said...

please, Mattingly, for the love of God or deity of preference, NO LEAGUE TODAY

Dusty Baker said...

We've only scored, like, 12 runs all year, and I go to walk the dogs and come back to the news that we've scored two while I was out. What black magic just happened?

(And I mean that in a non-Paula Deen kind of way)

Fred's Brim said...

@Dusty, it was a zillion walks and errors by the Padres. It seemed oddly familiar. I felt like I had seen that somewhere before but I couldn't quite place where...

Dusty Baker said...

Boxmuncher gets A Gon on strikes. 4-0 Dodgers going to the bottom of the sixth.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Denorfia went to Choad High School?

Orel said...

OH MY GOD THAT SHOT BY HANLEY

Cliff Beefpile said...

Holy shit! HanRAM!!!

karina said...

OH MY GOD, THAT'S UNBELIEVABLE!

BJ Killeen said...

Nice to not be crying

BJ Killeen said...

See ya Q you loser

Orel said...

Puig just let a 91 mph fastball go down the middle.

Orel said...

Another at 92.

Orel said...

Swinging K at 94 on the outside edge of the plate.

MR.F said...

Hooray for Greinke!

Orel said...

Dodgers PR ‏@DodgersPR 1m

Distance on @HanleyRamirez's home run: 413 feet.

MR.F said...

That run scored off Greinke was probably my fault.

karina said...

Mr F, why?

MR.F said...

Because I was happy for him!

Orel said...

Padres still flashing the leather against us. Great catch, Denorfia.

Fred's Brim said...

is Donnie going to run Grienke out there for the 9th, just to wear his arm out?

Fred's Brim said...

ok it's Hanley, because we know we won't need him tomorrow

Fred's Brim said...

ugh i mean Kenley of course
too many beers this afternoon

Orel said...

Kenley closes it out in 12 pitches.

Fred's Brim said...

hey a win

Fred's Brim said...

probably a ploy the padres just to get our meager hopes up

Steve Sax said...

Hey, we won a game!

Dusty Baker said...

What is this strange "too many beers" you speak of, FB?

Dusty Baker said...

PGT up, lads and lasses!
