Game 17 Thread: April 18 vs. Diamondbacks, 7p

"Cranky" Miley, get it? Holy smokes, that's a stretch.

Zack Greinke (3-0, 2.76) vs. Wade Miley (2-2, 5.04).

With Clayton Kershaw still on the mend, new #1 starter Zack Greinke takes to the mound again tonight vs. Wade Miley, who has already lost twice to the Dodgers in this young season. To be fair, Miley has two of the last-place Diamondbacks' four wins this year.

But to be unfair, the Dodgers are a perfect 5-0 against the Snakes, led recently by Adrian Gonzalez (7-for-13 with 10 RBI in the last LA-AZ series). Gonzalez has a 12-game hitting streak going on, and could be joined by Hanley Ramirez in the lineup )game time decision, apparently). And if Greinke can just have his velocity and location twerking today, we should take head-to-head victory #6 this evening at the Ravine.

Good to see HandRammed back in the lineup. Let's do this shit tonight, boys.

And by boys I mean SoSG readers, not actual players.

And by boys I mean boys AND girls.

And by all that I mean I'm going to be out at a dinner with limited amount of access to the game.*

*Which isn't different really than if I were sitting at home.

I'll be in my chair watching what we're paying TWC for the first time. Tomorrow, at the stadium.

Steve Sax said...

I will be on the road during this game but I will try and check in. Keep the snark flowing, ladies and gents!

This team has quickly become the number 2 team of fuckheads I love to HATE on. It seems that they are always throwing at and injuring our guys. They are an unprofessional and emotional group that never cease to amaze me at how bush league they can lower themselves to. I'm wondering how many of our team will be thrown at this time around. I hate to take the chance of losing some of our guys in a bench clearing brawl but also think it's time to put these douches in their place.

Orel said...

Damn, Karen, you have really elevated your hate-game this season. Well done.

karen said...

Thanks Orel. I'm a pretty easy going kind of girl most of the time, but I have what I'm sure is an unhealthy, powerful hatred for these 2 teams. I seem to lose all sense of sanity.

karen said...

Rodeo clown at the plate - hehehe

Orel said...

Walka walka.

Hideo Nomo said...

Offense take the night off again?

Orel said...

Puig two walks. Something's in the water.

BJ Killeen said...

They're so bored even the Dodgers bench is doing the wave.

Orel said...

Zack is awesome but he hasn't been pitching deep into games. At 75 pitches with two out in the third inning.

spank said...

I'm so bored my stomach folds are doing the wave.

Orel said...

Whoops, fourth.

Hunting for alligators...yeah, that always takes the height of intelligence. Except for you Steve Irwin. I always loved you.

NO-HITTER

Orel said...

Hey, it worked!

karen said...

Good job, Orel.

karen said...

SHIT

BJ Killeen said...

If Miley wins, all the Dodgers must shave and cut their hair

Orel said...

Can the Dodgers overcome this insurmountable 1-0 deficit?

BJ Killeen said...

Smack this hide, Agon

Steve Sax said...

What the fuck, why is Miley shutting us down?

Steve Sax said...

Padres up 1-0 on Giants through seven full

Orel said...

Miley at 106 pitches to start the seventh. Will we be dumbasses and swing at early pitches?

Orel said...

And SVS homers on the second pitch he sees! Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Steve Sax said...

Boom SVS!

Hideo Nomo said...

Nice work, S(py)V(s)S(py)!

BJ Killeen said...

Vin said Miley pitched his hair off!

Hideo Nomo said...

I don't even have a cool retirement-based nickname for Figgins like I did for GAARP.

Orel said...

Three walks for Puig tonight.

Orel said...

Padres beat the Giants 2-1.

karen said...

Here's wear my boy takes us to the promised land all...

karen said...

Oh Matty! Why do you tease me so??

Steve Sax said...

Oh, this is bad.

Orel said...

Snakes take the lead on a Withrow WP. Game over.

Orel said...

Holy shit, a WP on an IBB? We deserve to lose.

Hideo Nomo said...

With no offense, there's pressure on everybody else to be fucking perfect and mistakes are magnified. So, in short, score some fucking runs.

Uribear!

League didn't set the place on fire.

Orel said...

This is madness!

karen said...

My head hurts.

BJ Killeen said...

Fell asleep. Damn Detroit time.

Hideo Nomo said...

Highest payroll in baseball must be contractually obligated to play the longest games.

BJ Killeen said...

Why can't we win in 9 like everyone else?

BJ Killeen said...

Oh Dre❤️❤️❤️❤️

karen said...

Eithier playing for the win

Orel said...

It's like the bullpen just wants to go home. Every game.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I swear, it feels like Parra gets four at-bats each time through the line-up

Orel said...

So...a loss and a depleted bullpen.

karen said...

Anyone ever hear the joke about the abused kid who goes to court and asks to be adopted by the Dodgers because they don't beat anyone?

Just needed to get that one outta my system.

Steve Sax said...

federowicz is such a liability

spank said...

is it too early to blame Ned?

NO!
