Game 77 Thread: June 26 vs. Giants, 7p

Pablo Sandoval, from last night's game. Collect them all!

Clayton Kershaw (5-5, 2.06) vs. Tim Lincecum (4-7, 4.52).

So this happened last night:

"Gimme some dap, Falsone!"

"Must save...

...League's bacon!"

"Shoulder still works!"

"Same with the hammy!"

Remember when the Kershaw-Lincecum rivalry was going to be one for the ages? Well, Kershaw kept up his end of the bargain and is in position to help the Dodgers sweep the Giants tonight.

Meanwhile, everybody from the projected opening day lineup is back, sans Carl Crawford, so let's enjoy the maximum firepower until the next injury occurs.

Dylan Hernandez ‏@dylanohernandez 55s
Don Mattingly confirmed this was a scheduled day off for Kemp.

Dylan Hernandez ‏@dylanohernandez 1m
Matt Kemp said there is nothing wrong with him physically.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Nomo - can you send Donnie a flowchart on giving star players scheduled days off... after they've just returned from a month off

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Hideo Nomo said...

Is Matt Kemp in the dugout? > Yes > Are all his limbs attached? > Yes > Play him.

My daughter sees Fat Panda on TV last night and asks, is that the guy who likes cake?"

I didn't know what she she was talking about, then she reminded me of the baserunning gif.

Kids these days are lucky. They get to grow up with Vinny and SoSG.

Orel said...

That's an AWESOME story, DBT!

BJ Killeen said...

God forbid we should have all the A players in the game at the same time. Let's finish off this crappy team and the head freak.

Orel said...

It's Lincecum. We got this*.

*famous last words

Dodger Nation: 4 in a row for our @Dodgers after last night's win! Let's make it 5 in a row tonight!

Hideo Nomo said...

Dodger Nation: Is this ziti? Whatever it is, it's delicious! I'll ask Tommy Lasordo when I get back from #Portofino!

45 mins to game time!

MR.F said...

After nearly blowing a three-run lead Tuesday night, Brandon League now will be used exclusively in "less stressful," situations, manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday. Until pitching coach Rick Honeycutt and bullpen coach Chuck Crim can help "piece him back together," Mattingly said he doesn't anticipate using League in one of the last three innings when the Dodgers have a narrow lead.

Orel said...

Even though I'm in Italy, I'm looking forward to the Dodgers lighting up Lincecum tonight.

Hideo Nomo said...

@djshort: Don Mattingly says Brandon League will be used in "less stressful" situations, which I can only assume means not in baseball games.

Hideo Nomo said...

DBacks lost.

Eating caviar with my buddy, the pretender to the crown of #AlsaceLorraine! We're about to go #Fabergé egg shopping, but first I wanted to say go #Dodgers!

Hideo Nomo said...

Orel said...

Lincecum still throws 93?

MR.F said...

Puig!!

Orel said...

Puig doubles, takes third on AGon's deep fly ball. Doesn't even slide.

Orel said...

Dodgers strand two in the 1st. Great job, guys.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Grow yer hair, Timmeh!

MR.F said...

We're getting hits off Timmeh. We just need to score runs, damnit.

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton grounded out so he could clear himself

Fred's Brim said...

Anybody else terrified that his consistent hustling down the line will eventually turn into a popped hammy?

Fred's Brim said...

Can we give a Performance Shirt to League?

Fred's Brim said...

Did Crawford cut his hair or does he have it in a bun tonight?

Cliff Beefpile said...

@FB

After what's gone down this season, I'm afraid of any of them popping a hammy just walking out of the dugout. Well, maybe not League or Bellisario.

Fred's Brim said...

@Cliff - why do injuries only happen to key players? They never seem to happen to the bums

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dammit, Gonzalez, you slow bastard.

Fred's Brim said...

Attaboy, Hanley

MR.F said...

Hey look, a run!

Fred's Brim said...

he threw that pitch three straight times, Dre swung at all of them.

Maybe Dre is setting up for a walk later in the game

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuckin' Poser.

karina said...

@Fred's Brim the optimistic me says that Dre is just studying Lincecum

*hides*

MR.F said...

Fucking pubes.

Steve Sax said...

I blame Steiner he just said the Giants hadn't had a lead in 30 Innings

Fred's Brim said...

cripes
i am still so tired of that cnut

Fred's Brim said...

definitely Charlie's fault

Orel said...

We'll get it back.

Paul said...

I hate Boyster Pubes.

Fred's Brim said...

Now Pubes has a good pic for the embarrassing baseball card

Orel said...

I take it back.

Steve Sax said...

Uribe you still suck

Paul said...

I' hope Kershaw doesn't give up any more runs. We looks a bit like ourselves tonight.

Orel said...

Bad play by Puig. Even Vin said so.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Oy, Puig. What the hell.

Fred's Brim said...

This is turning annoying
Win it without me, yall

Orel said...

Hanley singles and steals second! Can't wait to see how we strand him.

Hideo Nomo said...

A steal? Huzzah!

Orel said...

Giants have to be happy Lincecum has pitched at least into the 6th.

Orel said...

Andre RBI ties it up! TRADE HIM NOW

Cliff Beefpile said...

Tied up, bishes!

Orel said...

Now Dre steals a base. Things be odd.

Paul said...

That's a dirty Sanchez behind the plate.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Damn, Ethier. Any kind of a decent throw and he's out by a mile.

Cliff Beefpile said...

AJEllis!

Paul said...

Fuck yeah!

Orel said...

Ajellis with the go-ahead RBI! TRADE HIM NOW

Paul said...

Trade rumors regarding AJ?

BJ Killeen said...

I wanna see the gnats crying tonight!

Paul said...

Two hits for the player formerly known as urine.

Paul said...

Don't hit a weak dribbler Skip.

Paul said...

Sanchez not good.

Orel said...

This non-Posey catcher is paying of nicely for the Dodgers.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Timmah!

BJ Killeen said...

The best thing about this game is we know League will be nowhere near the mound.

Orel said...

@Paul: No trade rumors re: A.J. I was just riffing off the trade rumors re: Andre.

Orel said...

Amen, BJK.

Orel said...

FB is in for a surprise. Unless we choke.

BJ Killeen said...

Love that Ray Charles song.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Come on, Phillies!

Paul said...

Dre for AJ Ellis trade! You heard it first on SOSG.

Cliff Beefpile said...

That's the kind of insider info we've all come to expect from SOSG. Fuck you, ESPN!

Spank said...

My Girl?

BJ Killeen said...

Hit the Road, Jack

Paul said...

Nice inning Clay!

Paul said...

3 for 4. Yeah not an All Star.

Hideo Nomo said...

Not able to catch this on TV. Did Vin still have real difficulty saying "Mijares"? He kept saying "Mujares" last night. Normally, he corrects himself, but he kept doing it. I thought his notes might have been wrong.

Hideo Nomo said...

"Sandy Rosario" sounds like a Filipina aunt's name.

Paul said...

I don't like Dre's chances.

Spank said...

*hits the bong then the road*

Orel said...

Yeah, Vin seems keen on saying Mijares like Mujares.

Paul said...

Now that we've come to the end of the bong load ... Still I can't let go.

Hideo Nomo said...

Dre: "Well, this works for Yasiel!" *closes eyes, swings at first pitch*

Paul said...

Uribe never struggles at the plate Vinny.

Orel said...

Now Vin's saying Yas-E-L.

Orel said...

YasE.L. Doctorow

karina said...

Quiroz will be Quiroz

Orel said...

Clayton gets through eight innings using 97 pitches.

Spank said...

Kid K seems to be pitching well from a Gameday point of view.

: (

Cliff Beefpile said...

Yay! Dunning's back!

EricoPerico said...

Nice! Phillies just tied it up.

Orel said...

Crawford is usually pretty slick defensively. Nice slide at first by A.J.

karina said...

I'm already stressed for the 9th

Orel said...

Dammit Uribe. Your Giant days are over.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Phuckin' Phillies! Tied it up in the 8th!

Orel said...

Posey is the tying run. Get go 'em, Clayton.

Orel said...

Donnie with the hook.

Spank said...

Time for Mattingly to bring in League

Cliff Beefpile said...

*Stands and applauds Kershaw*

Steve Sax said...

PHI 5, SD 5, top 9

Steve Sax said...

Jansen in to face Pubes, none out and man on first.

Steve Sax said...

2-0 count to Pubes

karina said...

it is never easy, right? we must suffer

Hideo Nomo said...

ARGH!

Steve Sax said...

Big K for Kenley, Pence chased a high one. One out.

Paul said...

One down.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Siddown, Underpantses!

Orel said...

Pence swings at a neck-high fastball for out number one.

Steve Sax said...

Jansen: 6 BB, 57 Ks in 2013

karina said...

double play is coming

Steve Sax said...

Come on, Kenley

Paul said...

Is that good?

Orel said...

Tensest game of the year?

Steve Sax said...

i don't like the feel of this

Orel said...

Pablo is fast for a fattie.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Sheezus. This at-bat has gone on forever.

Orel said...

YEAH!

Steve Sax said...

Panda K. Wow.

Paul said...

One more!

Steve Sax said...

Two out. Still tense.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Sandoval's gonna go drown his sorrows in some cheesecake.

Spank said...

Sit your ass down you fuck

Orel said...

SWEEP!

Steve Sax said...

And the Dodgers WIN!

Paul said...

We make streaking party!!!

MR.F said...

YES!!!!

Orel said...

First sweep of the Giants at Dodger Stadium since 2009.

Spank said...

WooHoo!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Within 6. Go Phils! Tonight anyways.

karina said...

BJ Killeen said...

Sweep that pile under the rug!!!!!

Paul said...

This feels good!

Spank said...

Hideo Nomo said...

Whoops. Stepped on your twitter joke, O. Sorry!

Orel said...

Not possible to do that, Gnomes!

Steve Sax said...
