Game 156 Thread: Sept. 22 @ Pads, 1p

Zack Greinke (15-3, 2.75 ERA) vs. Andre Cashner (10-8, 3.21 ERA)

Rubber game today, kids. Greinke goes for his 16th win and the Dodgers look to say goodbye to the Pod Rays on the season. Interesting note: The Dodgers are one win shy of joining the Giants (403) as the only teams with at least 400 wins over the Padres.

ps- Happy birthday to the Dodgefather, Tommy Lasorda!

Nice ceremony for Mariano Rivera at Yankme Stadium. Metallica live, playing Enter Sandman as Mariano walked onto the field. Bleacher Creatures had roll call for him and a number of returning teammates (O'Neill, Matsui, Berniw Williams, etc.). Cool stuff.

Steve Sax said...

We are starting a 976 number. How fitting given out expensive payroll

Dusty Baker said...

Greinke is the only player starting whose last name ends in a vowel.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

@Dusty, that's pretty freake

Steve Sax said...

Kemp's is the only one with only one vowel.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Young is the oldest guy in the starting nine

Steve Sax said...

@DBT: +1 for the irony

Dusty Baker said...

Oh jesus, if it's Sunday in San Diego, it must be hideous uniforms, jingoism, and perpetuation of the military industrial complex day.

Dusty Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Who smeared diahrrea all over Hanley's helmet?

Dusty Baker said...

Padres may have drawn over two million this year, Vin, but half of them were Dodger fans.

Dusty Baker said...

If there is a god or gods, they will not allow Burrito Express Pasadena commercials during games next season.

Dusty Baker said...

Shouldn't a guy with a name Logan Forsythe be a US ambassador to some former British colony, not a baseball player?

Lot of rumors that today is rookie dress-up day for the Dodgers. Brian Wilson may or may not be involved.

Dusty Baker said...

I noted Tony Jackson mentioning it, too, Orel. He seemed rookie-dress-up naive, though, acting like he didn't know how to get pics of such.

Pfffffftttt. We gots your rookie dress up pics here at SoSG.

Orel said...

Sounds like Tony is being old-school. You know those pictures will hit Twitter ASAP.

Dusty Baker said...

That's what I was thinking, Orel.

Dusty Baker said...

Puig's left hip is barking at him, no?

Dusty Baker said...

They're on a swarm-of-bees delay in Anaheim now.

Steve Sax said...

Seriously? Blind Melon would be stoked

Dusty Baker said...

Nice play, Young!

Steve Sax said...

Braves are winning 4-1 in the eighth

Giants beat the Yankees, that's good

Reds whomped the Pirates

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers go 1-2-3 in the fourth

Lakers are Winners said...

SAX, are you a Giants fan or dodger fan, I can't tell.

Steve Sax said...

@LaW: I'm a Dodgers fan to the core. However as part of this, I want the Giants to win just enough games to stay out of the bottom 10 of the MLB--thereby making sure they don't get first-round-pick-draft relief if one of their free-agent picks decline.

It's all part of the master plan.

Steve Sax said...

Whoops, the prior comment disappeared. For the record, someone had inquired as to why I was happy the Giants won today...

Orel said...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Goddammit, both my fantasy football teams suck. And fuck Metallica and their stupid-ass movie. Bay Area twats.

I'm surly for no particular reason on this lovely Sunday...and the Dodgers aren't helping.

Cliff Beefpile said...

That's more like it. SUCK IT, CASHNER!

Dusty Baker said...

Expected to see a "Mission Accomplished" banner on that aircraft carrier they just showed between innings.

Dusty Baker said...

Sax loves the Giants sooooo much. That's why he started a Dodgers blog.

He also supports raising beer prices at Dodger Stadium.

Fred's Brim said...

throw strikes, Chris

Dusty Baker said...

Forget about your kid and start throwing fucking strikes, you big dummy. Do what FB says.

Fred's Brim said...

cmon, kid

Dusty Baker said...

I rarely if ever bag on Vinny, but VIn, you just read that same note on Logan Forsythe during an earlier AB.

Dusty Baker said...

Was that - what do they call them things - a strike?

Fred's Brim said...

gift K there, now finish this

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, kid!

Dusty Baker said...

Out of that jam!

Fred's Brim said...

the Bills' secondary is no good
we're gonna need some (more) help from the Jets to have a chance

Cliff Beefpile said...

If you could have the Bills throw it to Fred Jackson I'd appreciate it, FB!

Dusty Baker said...

Hurry up and finish this shit - can't stand to look at these scruffy camp wearing fools much longer.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Time for another moon shot, Puig.

Fred's Brim said...

@Cliffy there you go!

Fred's Brim said...

Donnie looking to wear out Withrow now?

Fred's Brim said...

wow you don't see that very often

Hideo Nomo said...

I think Withrow's getting work in since he missed time to become a new daddy.

Dusty Baker said...

K! Second out. Let's get through this before League comes in.

Fred's Brim said...

Great job, Chris!

Dusty Baker said...

Chris playoff ready. #Nails

Cliff Beefpile said...

I know we don't want to overwork Greinke...but would one more inning have really killed him? Donnie, you truly are an AL manager.

Dusty Baker said...

I almost forgot about Dre.

Fred's Brim said...

that's a nice sign

Dusty Baker said...

Well that was a piece of shit AB.

Fred's Brim said...

Dre just wanted to swing a few times. He'll wait to hit the ball when he gets home

Dusty Baker said...

Those were some terrible ABs. These guys just want to get to the rookie hazing bit after the game.

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon, KJ!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Wow, looks like the Colts might beat the 'Niners.

Dusty Baker said...

One down in the ninth. Nice work, KJ.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck. Fucking Andrew Luck. I want the 'Niners to lose, but not to have the Amish Hammer run for TDs. Fuck my fantasy team.

Dusty Baker said...

Filthy. Two down.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Looks like Kenley's in postseason form too.

Fred's Brim said...

WOOO!

Dusty Baker said...

Mariano who???

Dusty Baker said...

We make rubber party!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Boom. Win number 90 is a 1-0 shutout. The way they've pitched this year, that seems very appropriate.

Fred's Brim said...

Attaboy, KJ!

Cliff Beefpile said...

BEAT FRISCO!

Dusty Baker said...

Great game with the glvoe and the bat, Young!

Fred's Brim said...

Rubber Picnic

@Saxy: (2:03)

Nice!

Steve Sax said...

Niners lose. Dodgers win. Love it.

Steve Sax said...

PGT goes up tomorrow.

So sleepy.
