Game 124 Thread: Aug. 19 @ Marlins, 4p

Apparently the Marlins "Energy Team" has replaced the Marlins Mermaids at Marlins Park. Where have you gone, Glenda?

Hyun-Jin Ryu (12-3, 2.91) vs. Jose Fernandez (8-5, 2.45).

After having their ten-game winning streak snapped by Hole Camels and the Phils, the Dodgers take their talents to Miami, where they will take on all the Marlins. Every last one. Rookie Fernandez is good news for the moribund franchise, as the Marlins have won five of his last six starts.

It seems petty to call out Hanley Ramirez for his ham-fisted heroics yesterday, so let's instead concentrate on his return to his former home park. Do they activate the outfield home run monstrosity sculpture for former players? Probably not. Nevertheless, the new streak starts today!

Rackin'-frackin' early games...

BJ Killeen said...

Yeah, but the Gnats are facing Cincy...looking for a beat down there...almost as enjoyable as a Dodgers win.

MR.F said...

Hi everyone. I disappeared for awhile, but am here now. Here's a cool Puig article from Baseball Prospectus.

Mr F: can you find me a recent article on Glenda?

Hideo Nomo said...

"Fuck Marshall McLuhan too!" -Puig

Neeebolito said...

"Why are we all yelling!??" -B. Wilson.

Steve Sax said...

"LOUD NOISES!" - B Wilson

MR.F said...

@Sax, I can look, but maybe not in the office =X

Dusty Baker said...

Glad you'reback Mr F!

BJ Killeen said...

BJ Killeen said...

We're Puigless today, folks.

Steve Sax said...

@MR F, where were you anyway? Is it true you lose weight on prison food?

MR.F said...

Lose weight?! I have never eaten better in my life!

Neeebolito said...

Puig was originally set to bat second no?

Hideo Nomo said...

Yeah, that's not right. No way Punto would be in RF.

Hideo Nomo said...

Here's what @Dodgers has:

Crawford LF
Puig RF
Gonzalez 1B
Ramirez SS
Ethier CF
AJ Ellis C
Uribe 3B
M. Ellis 2B
Ryu P

Dusty Baker said...

@BJ and others re Puig:

Ramona Shelbourne and others reporting that the Puig/media comments were made in joking manner and are being taken out of context for those who didn't witess it.

Neeebolito said...

This type of misunderstanding happens to Neeebs on tour all the time. Except the opposite they think he is joking and then someone's nose get smashed.

Hideo Nomo said...

He'd then proceed to actually fuck the media.

Neeebolito said...

They don't call him the restraining order king for nothing.

BJ Killeen said...

Posted a bad lineup. Bench me. I blame it on the assclown media following me around the Miami nightclubs while I drank christal and spent 20g

MR.F said...

@BJ, fuck the media!

Hideo Nomo said...

Mistakes like that might cost us a Postseason GT.

Neeebolito said...

Disclaimer: I will be hungover for our first postseason GT or drunk...probably both.

BJ Killeen said...

@Mr. F: agreed.

BJ Killeen said...

I'm watching the game. Scott went to shoot the thunderhead clouds, and no, that's not a minor-league team.

Dusty Baker said...

I've never taken shots of thundercloud. Is it good? What's the best chaser?

Hideo Nomo said...

Woooo! Making Fernandez work! (Before letting him off the hook.)

Dusty Baker said...

23 pitches in the first inning for Fernandez. Work it girl!

Dusty Baker said...

For the SoSg comment scorekeepers' benefit:

That's not a DAMMIT as i saw Gnomes' content and sought to add to it.

Dusty Baker said...

Strike-em out, throw 'em out!

BJ Killeen said...

@Dusty: sometimes it comes with ice...

Hideo Nomo said...

We seem to have remembered to pack the good defense for the flight to Miami. Offense might still be on the carousel.

Dusty Baker said...

Offense is still out with Lebron.

Neeebolito said...

Yeah not a good start.

Dusty Baker said...

God damn you bunch of hungover shitrats, get it together. I mean our team, not you SoSG commenters.

Neeebolito said...

Partying on a work night is great if you can produce the next day.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah I'm kind of the last one on earth to criticize...

Dusty Baker said...

BTW: In-Game graphic posted.

Neeebolito said...

I'm just disappointed that it looks like these guys haven't played hungover before. This might comeback to haunt them in the postseason. As well as the damage to their retinas from the marlins' uniforms.

Neeebolito said...

Hey looks like the Marlins showed up! Gotta take advantage.

Neeebolito said...

Fuck this ump.

Steve Sax said...

@DB: I don't get the graphic...

Neeebolito said...

Horrible Puig.

Steve Sax said...

Crawdaddy gets us on the board

Neeebolito said...

This ump does suck

Neeebolito said...

Maybe he is hungover from partying with Lebron.

Steve Sax said...

What the fuck is up with this ump, yapping at Puig?

What a tool.

Neeebolito said...

He strike zone is as wide as Uribe.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, AGon Kd. 2-1 Marlins

Neeebolito said...

This Ump is fucking pissing me off and my son will be home soon so I'm gonna have to censor myself!!!

Steve Sax said...

Zona down 5-1 to cincy (sf is vs Boston)

Neeebolito said...

Ryu settling in. Give him some love offense.

Steve Sax said...

Evelyn Taft!

I'm feeling better.

Steve Sax said...

Dre gets plunked on the knees.

Steve Sax said...

Dammit, AJ almost got Andre home there

Neeebs too said...

Not Evelyn but Will.i.am.

Hideo Nomo said...

Uribe trying to give the Dodgers $21 million worth in two months.

BJ Killeen said...

Whaddafuck is going on here. These smelly fish are 28 GB. We can't let them best us.

Neeebolito said...

Le sigh

Hideo Nomo said...

Le barf.

BJ Killeen said...

#stoptheslump

BJ Killeen said...

I'm eating Marlin for dinner and I'm gonna cook it to death

Steve Sax said...

Diamondbacks lost 5-3. So there's that.

Orel said...

GUYS PUIG TOOK A BALL

Neeebolito said...

We lost? Where is the party at?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Blah

Neeebs too said...

Steve Sax said...

Giants down 7-0 to the Red Sox.
