Game 129 Thread: August 24 vs. Red Sox, 1p

Hyun-Jin Ryu (12-4, 2.95 ERA) vs. John Lester (11-7, 4.09 ERA)

For those of you cooking at home on this fine Saturday, here's a nice recipe for a backyard lobster bake:

15 pounds of seaweed
16 (1 1/2 pound) lobsters
16 ears corn, shucked
5 pounds red potatoes, parboiled halfway in salted water
10 pounds large clams
1 bottle white wine
2 yards wet burlap
Special equipment: #3 galvanized washtub

Start the fire 1 hour in advance, making sure the coals are white hot before you begin cooking.

Spread 1/2 of the seaweed on the bottom of the tub to protect the lobsters from burning. Place lobsters on top of seaweed. Place the corn on top of the lobster, and the potatoes on top of the corn. Arrange the raw clams on top of the vegetables and top with the remaining seaweed. Pour the wine into the tub. Place the wet burlap over the food and tuck the edges into the tub to retain the steam inside.

Place the tub on top of the coals. Every 15 minutes, moisten the burlap with water. Cook for about 45 minutes.

Serve the lobster bake strewn out on newspapers, with melted butter, piles of coarse sea salt, and favorite spices as condiments.
What on earth made with seaweed ever tastes good? Well, maybe Scotch is an exception.

Should be a day when we can keep these guys in hot water with Ryu cruising. Let's turn these lobstah-loving losers Blue.

Dusty Baker said...

I have determined that the Dodgers have the slowest lineup release of any team.

BJ Killeen said...

Lets do this thing. I bet a bosox fan dinner for the series win and I need to collect

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

What time should I come over for the lobster bake?

Hideo Nomo said...

Tantric lineup posting.

BJ Killeen said...

FYI: Just did a radio show with 100 stations across the country and plugged SOSG!!

Orel said...

Thanks, BJ! You have a link?

Dusty Baker said...

@Nomo

It's like Sting does the lineup for us.

Paul said...

They also have the slowest will call ticket release for team family and friends. I remember hangin with Dre's father a few years ago and missing Dodgers batting practice in San Diego.

Paul said...

I think we got this one. Lets do it for FB who is currently trying to get amnesty in Uganda.

Hideo Nomo said...

We'd help FB, but we haven't had much luck getting Stubbs out of that Turkish prison.

Or was it a turkey prison?

Orel said...

Or was it a turkey burger?

Dusty Baker said...

Asada street tacos: check
Negra modelos down the hatch

Let's do this!

pa- PJ are you at the Yard? let's dry hump if possible.

Paul said...

I am not Dusty and my directtv channel guide has informed me they are showing the Oakland Bmore game. Fuck a turkey.

Loney Fan said...

Any Sons at the game today? We're in the Top Deck but willing to travel.

Neeebs (The Original) said...

Loney Fan sighting!
I miss the old Avatar

Dusty Baker said...

Good applause for Uribe on his introduction.

Loney Fan said...

ni

Dusty Baker said...

Wilson apparel update on the main page.

Loney Fan said...

The old avatar was my wife. She left for a Philliea fan last year. Best Dodger game of the year when we beat the Phillies as she was at the game in Phillies gear.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn what a tale, LF!

Steve Sax said...

@LoneyFan: what? Are you serious?!

Sorry to hear it, LoneyFan. We loved your avatar but if she left for a Phils fan I question her judgment

Dusty Baker said...

At least he didn't throw at Victorino's head or he would have had a tantrum.

Steve Sax said...

Speaking of tragic, this is not a good start for Ryu.

Steve Sax said...

(Arash Markazi scrambles to find new narrative)

BJ Killeen said...

Orel, it will be up Monday. Will send a link then.

Dusty Baker said...

Jesus christ, Ryu! That was terrible. From what i cld tell he only hit above 90 once. Something seems off with him.

BJ Killeen said...

Ryu better get his head in this game. We can beat this scraggly looking band of sasquatches

Loney Fan said...

I got over the fact that she cheated on me. But naming the dog Utley and going to Phillies stadium in Phillies gear... Now you're a whore.

Orel said...

brutal strike zone

Orel said...

I hope this isn't a World Series preview.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn, LF. So you lost the missus and your namesake first baseman.

Orel said...

Fuck! Uribe just missed a HR.

Hideo Nomo said...

Uh...what's happening?

Orel said...

Why the fuck would the Dodgers "back away" from extending Kershaw?

Orel said...

1st inning Ryu < rest of game Ryu

Dusty Baker said...

When Did MEllis start walking up to Sucka MC's?

Steve Sax said...

4-0 through 4. Glad I'm not there to see this one.

BJ Killeen said...

Going from bad to worse with Marmol

Dusty Baker said...

Marmol was fine. WTF Puig???

Steve Sax said...

Two lousy hits through six. Come on, Blue!

Let's MO-Lester!

Hideo Nomo said...

Not our day.

Steve Sax said...

Uribe unassisted GIDP.

Back on Friday, that would have been a three-run HR

Hideo Nomo said...

I blame Dusty posting the Sox lineup.

Orel said...

This game still gwan?

BJ Killeen said...

This is sad

Steve Sax said...

@Gnomes: the posting of the sox lineup was indeed weird

Steve Sax said...

If this is it, please let me know

Orel said...

AGon 2-RBI double!

Steve Sax said...

4-2, but AJ had a great opportunity there...

Cliff Beefpile said...

LULZberry!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Well, shit.

BJ Killeen said...

If Cappy leaves me hanging tomorrow, I'll find a way to make him pay.

Dusty Baker said...

Jesus f'in christ w the lineup. Forget it - i ain't posting anything else this series.

(takes ball, goes home)

Steve Sax said...

I also realized that we didn't label this GT with our starting pitcher, another rarity.

Hmm.

(ducks, in advance of the shoe Dusty is throwing at him)

Dusty Baker said...

Need to do a research project but i thought the usual convention was to label w opposing pitcher.

Some serious meta shit right here.

Dusty Baker said...

Quick recent scan shows some label of opposing pitcher, some of Dodger, and some of neither. #PrettySureNoOneIsWrong

Pride of Dong said...

D-Bags just starting 18th inning in Philly

Paul said...

Gotta love extra inning baseball!

Dusty Baker said...

Can't stop watching this extra-innings shitfest.

Paul said...

Give Wells a break ump!

Paul said...

Gosewisch? That isn't a real name.

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

Neither is Tuffy.

Paul said...

2 outs! Come on #22!

Paul said...

90 mph flat heater but 90mph. . God bless him. I want to buy this guy a beer.

Paul said...

Strictly handheld is the style I go.

Paul said...

Really! Where was the centerfielder positioned.

Paul said...

D bags.

Dusty Baker said...

Never rock the mic with the panty hose, Paul.

Paul said...

That's Neeebs thing.

Paul said...

Fuck ump! Dudley do right. Open your zone!

Paul said...

Open your zone is a great Flaming Menudos song btw. Think this game is over.

Dusty Baker said...

I dedicate "Open Your Zone" to Neeebs' mom every time I play it acoustic on tour.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up!
