Game 136 Thread: September 1 vs. Padres, 1p


Zack Greinke (13-3, 2.86) vs. Tyson Ross (3-7, 3.05 ERA)

Although Carlos Quentin is out for the season, Zack Greinke may be thinking revenge for the early season dust-up with the Pod Rays resulting in a broken collarbone that caused him to miss a month or so of the season. But hell, isn't Ian Kennedy on San Diego now? Greinke could somehow throw at him in the dugout, and get revenge for two separate incidents. The best revenge, however, would just be for Zack to win the game convincingly as he's done recently; in fact, if Augustus would have given August 32 days, Greinke could be on the line for his sixth win in the month.

If it sounds like I'm surly this morning, well, I am. I want a win and I want it convincingly. It's been, like, two days since we won convincingly.

SoSG Sax and I will both be at the Yard today, so if anyone fancies a beer and some surl, by all means drop us a line.

You beat me to the GT, but, for the record, I was going to go with Tyson vs. Zack(y).

Dusty Baker said...

Nice. You must have been running even later than I was to it, as I didn't finish until 9:46am.

Yeah, it was a matter of me seeing there was no GT, checking the starters, hitting refresh, then seeing your draft.

Dusty Baker said...

That's the kind of lightning fast operation we run here at the SoSG World Headquarters, people. It's truly crackling around here this morning.

Dusty Baker said...

Who knows much about this Drew Butera cat?

Paul said...

Shave that magic number down to 17 today!

Hideo Nomo said...

@Dusty: LHWG.

Steve Sax said...

Speaking of lightning fast, that SoSG intern got to the "jsut" typo before I could, as well. Lets give that summer intern an offer

BJ Killeen said...

Can you teach the intern to post the PGT prior to the three next games? ;-)

Dusty Baker said...

I made my own edit!

Fred's Brim said...

Gotta keep pitching

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Must throw strikes, and lots of 'em

karen said...

@DB & Saxy...Either of you care to comment on how sweat may be effecting surliness factor??

Fred's Brim said...

This Ross dude seems to have good stuff. Fastball in the mid 90s and some sharp-dropping breaking stuff

Fred's Brim said...

Saxy is probably yelling obscenities at Ross because according to Vin, Ross went to Cal

karen said...

Hey FB!! I haven't said hi to you in awhile. Hope you are being a good boy...well trying to be good anyway :)

karen said...

Crap. First an third. Smoke 'em Zacky.

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, Zach!

Fred's Brim said...

hey there, karen! Been mostly good, how about you?

Fred's Brim said...

stupid walks

karen said...

FB...I'm working on it.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, Zach, figure it out

Dusty Baker said...

Just dry humped Sax. He and his actual dad have retreated to the shade.

I'm less surly after having seem my SoSG brother.

Fred's Brim said...

Nice recovery, Zach

Steve Sax said...

Just saw Dusty AND the Dustettes. Awesome. I forgot to get autographs!

Steve Sax said...

Just got relocated from shaded seats, have to go to seats in direct sunlight

karen said...

@DB...I love Sunday games in the park. However, I don't like to sweat. It's icky.

What's a girl to do??

Steve Sax said...

What just happened? I am stuck in the beer line

Steve Sax said...

@karen: stadium club

Hideo Nomo said...

Awright, Crawdaddy! Two out madness time!

Fred's Brim said...

Carl breaks up the no-hitter with a double to right

karen said...

*See comment to DB ^

karen said...

Hideo Nomo said...

Wooooooo!!

Fred's Brim said...

Attaboy MEllis!

Fred's Brim said...

Hunter Wendelstedt likes the top part of the strike zone a lot

BJ Killeen said...

We go to the game more if the seats were la-z-boy recliners

karen said...

I'm with you, BJ. La-z-boys with cooling systems.

karen said...

Vinny learnin' us again about baseball facts and history.

Love it.

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Zach

Fred's Brim said...

we can't lay off that breaking pitch
it's almost like a splitter or something

Fred's Brim said...

Puig out by a mile

karen said...

Only 10 home games left. This season has gone way to fast.

Hollandsworth said...

PUIIIIIGGGGGGGG.

karen said...

Neeebs (The Original) said...

BJ Killeen said...

I dozed off...a little chilly in the house from the AC and these recliners are so comfortable. How's it going at the stadium? Rofl.

BJ Killeen said...

Gnats 5, D'bags 1. Likin that a lot

spank said...

POOOWEEEEEEEG!

spank said...

I'm cruising over to BJ's. Fuck being out in the heat.

BJ Killeen said...

Cold one waiting for ya spank

BJ Killeen said...

I don't see the charm of Hairston, but I also don't understand why Dee is still on this team. Maybeitsme.com

BJ Killeen said...

If our tired pen ruins this for Zack I'll be mad.

Hideo Nomo said...

BeliSORRYo.

Steve Sax said...

Nervous time

karen said...

Paco restores order.

Fred's Brim said...

Wow that pitch to AG was nasty

Fred's Brim said...

watching the replay of the Puig homer, he rocked into that pitch the way those homerun hitters do it in high level softball

Fred's Brim said...

by high level softball, I mean the SOSG softball team

Fred's Brim said...

yikes, Dre

Fred's Brim said...

I blame the humidity for them not seeing the ball well today. It's like looking through water

Steve Sax said...

Dre certainly likes to watch those third strikes go by

Steve Sax said...

Here is kenley

BJ Killeen said...

We need 3 more KJs

Cliff Beefpile said...

We make sweep party!

karen said...

*Zack weaves a beauty...
*Beli trys to shoot it to hell..
*Paco comes in and gains control...
*Kenley saves it...

Another normal day for Dodgers and their fans.

Fred's Brim said...
