Game 24 Thread: April 25 vs. Rockies, 7p

Josh Beckett (0-0, 2.57) vs. Jordan Lyles (3-0, 3.04).

New team in town! New transfer rules! New Puig biopic! Yes, it's a chance to wipe the slate clean and keep track of two games tonight: Clayton Kershaw starts for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes against the Lancaster JetHawks, and Beckett faces Lyles at Dodger Stadium.

Beckett has kept his ERA down but hasn't gone longer than five innings in a start this year; Lyles might be a find for Colorado, as he went seven innings in his last start as the Rox beat the (ahem) Phillies, 3-1.

Fred's Brim said...

Butt FUCK the Guadalupe River Park and Gardens, indeed

Franklin Stubbs said...

Up-fuckery literally! We'll, I'll be dipped in shite...

Franklin Stubbs said...

^well

(Why apple continues to think that is a typo, I'll never know)

Fred's Brim said...

I have an awful feeling about this game and series. I can see us being down 7-0 after 2 innings

Fred's Brim said...

Karina's boy is only hitting .263. You know he'll break out, Ruiz-style, this series

Fred's Brim said...

heh Rockies with the sleeveless jerseys, but with long sleeve undershirts

Fred's Brim said...

Nice inning by Samuel Beckett

Fred's Brim said...

Vin "...The Dodgers really combed his hair"

Fred's Brim said...

uhhhhh there are so many things to say about that bunt attempt by Dee

Fred's Brim said...

PUUUUUUIIIIIIIIIIIG!!!!
1-0 good guys!

Fred's Brim said...

he donked that one to right center

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley always looks like he's hurting himself on his swings

Steve Sax said...

Puig baby Puig.

Trying to get his allstar votes!

Fred's Brim said...

fuckaduck Hanley lines one to KB (Karina's Boy) who makes a nice catch

Fred's Brim said...

Mike Dunleavey can't be contained tonight

Fred's Brim said...

ferfucksake Tulo

Fred's Brim said...

It's weird to hear Vin talk about the year 2020 considering he started with the Dodgers in 1950

Orel said...

It had to be Tulo.

Fred's Brim said...

wow, nice play by Hanley in the hole

Fred's Brim said...

sheezus Beckett
how do you let that asshole hit one off you?

Fred's Brim said...

get the ball down, you chump!

Orel said...

Hmmm. Slugfest tonight.

Fred's Brim said...

slugfest

Fred's Brim said...

I have a feeling this will be a 1-sided slugfest, aka a rout

Fred's Brim said...

that was quick
I remember the days when we used to take a lot of pitches

karen said...

Epale All!!

@FB...I just got here. I know Russ Martin is Karina's son, but who is her boy? I'm thinking Cargo??

Fred's Brim said...

I felt a little dirty when Vin said "Regina"

Fred's Brim said...

Howdy Karen!

KB = Cargo = Carlos Gonzales = the NL West SOB that was replaced by Paul Goldschmidt on the top of my "go to hell" list

Fred's Brim said...

nice catch, CC!

karen said...

Thanks FB!!

Fred's Brim said...

Dylan Hernandez ‏@dylanohernandez Apr 25
I counted 8700 empty seats while I was trying 6 different vending options before the 3rd inning

Fred's Brim said...

@karen that's just what I call him. That may not be part of the SOSG vernacular

Fred's Brim said...

SpeeDee!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Part of me wants to play him every day, another part of me thinks he is playing this well because he's not playing every day

karen said...

YEAH BABY!!!

Fred's Brim said...

woohoo! Puid drives in Dee from second with a groundball single

Fred's Brim said...

Puig

Orel said...

That slugfest picture looks like a SoSG Fest.

Orel said...

Puig RBI #2!

Fred's Brim said...

"Speed never has a slump"
"You can't teach height"

Fred's Brim said...

Stubbsy is a great cuddler

Fred's Brim said...

I never really saw CC play in Tampa or Boston but I have a hard time believing he was considered a great fielder

karen said...

Very cool story Vin just told about Tulo and his teacher.

Fred's Brim said...

nasty breaking ball gets Tulo

Fred's Brim said...

wow, great play by FedEx

karen said...

Nice play by Fedex

Fred's Brim said...

Do you like Mike D from the Beastie Boys? Do you hate Screech from Saved by the Bell? Do you want to see their love child? Of course you do. Check out Paul O'Neil these days

karen said...

The shift shoots down AGon

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Matty, good patience

Fred's Brim said...

I love it when Vin is surprised by things that happen in baseball

Fred's Brim said...

Tulo nearly made a great play. he needed a taller second baseman

Fred's Brim said...

Pocketfull of dueces: 2 out, 2 on, 2-2 count, 2-2 game

Fred's Brim said...

^That was Vin

Fred's Brim said...

goddammit, FedEx robbed by a nice play by Arenado

Fred's Brim said...

sounded like Clayton did OK tonight. he gave up a homer to some chode but it was his birthday so Clayton probably grooved one for him

Fred's Brim said...

Why are the Rockies wearing women's basketball jerseys?

Fred's Brim said...

nice inning for Beckett.
I guess it'll be the 6th inning when he falls apart

Franklin Stubbs said...

Swell

Fred's Brim said...

why the FUCK is Dee trying to bunt , for the first time, with 2 strikes, for the second time?!?

Fred's Brim said...

Uribe's throws have been low lately

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Samuel and Dee!

Fred's Brim said...

oof KB misplayed that one for the first time ever

karen said...

Hanley with the double...Here we go...

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley at second with no outs, soon to be stranded

Fred's Brim said...

ooof bad K by AGon

Fred's Brim said...

Matty with Outkast for his walkup song

Hideo Nomo said...

Why yes, MLB.tv, I want a series of still images, not the actual video of the game.

Fred's Brim said...

sheezus, AGon, at least hit a grounder to the right. I know you can do that

Fred's Brim said...

@Gnomes if you string them together it'll look like some old-timey baseball movie

Fred's Brim said...

wow, miracle foul tip to keep Matty alive

Fred's Brim said...

for a weak blooper to deep second

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, weaksauce

karen said...

Hanley's lead off double wasted.

Fred's Brim said...

Does Beckett realize he's in the 7th inning? Please don't tell him

Fred's Brim said...

this is setting up for another bullpen disappointment. I am thinking a Cargo homer off JP

karen said...

Beckett has settled down nicely. Will we see him in the 8th or will Donnie turn it over to the bullpen?

karen said...

I love having Uribe hiding in that number 7 spot.

karen said...

...and UJTD

Fred's Brim said...

I know we don't have any bench anymore but Beckett is hitting? I guess we don't have a bullpen either

Fred's Brim said...

@karen I agree with you about Uribe. There are definitely worse dudes to have there

karen said...

Rain starting to come down at DS.

karen said...

Thought we had a strike 'em out, throw 'em out there.

karen said...

Good job, Josh.

Steve Sax said...

Way to go Beckett!

Fred's Brim said...

haha Vin calling out Robert Moses

karen said...

Hey Saxy!!

Fred's Brim said...

Ottavino's got a frisbee slider

Fred's Brim said...

take the walk, YP

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

DBT checking in. I'm so out of touch with SoSG and the Blue Crew this year. Not being able to watch games at home fucking sucks.

I caught a few innings at Glory Days in Lakewood. Was on the lookout for Johnny Blanchard, but he wasn't around. Nice crowd there in Dodgers gear, all cursing TWC.

karen said...

Ouch.

karen said...

@DBT...Don't be a stranger. We miss you.

Hideo Nomo said...

Was that Hanley K as bad as it looked on Gameday?

Fred's Brim said...

cripes Ottavino is a Roogy but for 3 outs

Fred's Brim said...

@Gnomes it wasn't that bad, Ottavino threw a nasty pitch that swept right to left. It looked like a nasty lefty vs Dre but reversed

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon fellas, let's finish this off

karen said...

@Gnomes...It was pretty sad.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

@Karen I miss y'all too!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

2-2 home half of the ninth. It's getting good. Sudden death time

karen said...

Adrian looked fooled on that one.

Fred's Brim said...

they gonna leave him in vs Kemp so he can face CC next?

Fred's Brim said...

Boone Logan, the man with 2 first and last names

karen said...

@DBT...My baby bro is in the same situation you are. He and friends are hanging in a pizza place to see the game.

Fred's Brim said...

Cmon Matty, you can hit this lefty chump

karen said...

Nooo Matty!!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Boone Logan... sounds like a vinter of fine wines

Fred's Brim said...

no way, blue!

Fred's Brim said...

that said, first questionable call all night

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

@FB was up? I'm in the dark over here

Fred's Brim said...

TAKE THE WALK!

Fred's Brim said...

yo DBT!
I finally have the advantage of not being in the Dodger's market

Fred's Brim said...

LET HIM WALK YOU!

Fred's Brim said...

just
like
that
Cmon, Juanny!

Fred's Brim said...

heh a guy still wearing a Furcal jersey

karen said...

Extras...

Fred's Brim said...

extras? what's that? we never play extra innings

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Is it still "free beisbol" if I can't watch the extra innings?

Fred's Brim said...

will Donnie let Perez pitch some more or is it Jamey in for a while. if he's gonna go with Jamey it better be a double switch because he'd be up soon

Fred's Brim said...

ahh Dre's gonna bat second in the 10th

Fred's Brim said...

@DBT it's more like "negative beisbol" because we stink in extras

Fred's Brim said...

the rain is for real. what the hell is going on out there?

Orel said...

Let Greinke bat!

Fred's Brim said...

Take the walk, Timmy!

Fred's Brim said...

Let Greinke bat!

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, Dre!

karen said...

Yasiel jonesing for a chance here.

Fred's Brim said...

that'll do, Dee

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

C'mon Dee

Fred's Brim said...

LeMayHyoo doesn't make that play if the dirt isn't wet because of the rain

Fred's Brim said...

poke it somewhere, kid!

Fred's Brim said...

bah

Orel said...

ugh

Fred's Brim said...

fudge

Fred's Brim said...

fuck, Blackmon is due too

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Damn Rockies are a lot better than I thought.

Fred's Brim said...

son of a c

Fred's Brim said...

every bearded Rockie lefty from now on will make me think he's Todd Helton

Fred's Brim said...

FUCK@!@@@!@!@!

Fred's Brim said...

Dammit Donnie! Wright could have done that shit

karen said...

Oh crap. FB called a JP v Cargo match up awhile ago

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Are the Rockies using our rally monkey? Fuck!

Fred's Brim said...

ooh here it is, Cargo's gonna homer off Howell to put me over the edge

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck everyone who is not a Dodgers fan.

That is all.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck we aren't very good, are we?

karen said...

Donnie tossing in the towel. Brings League in.

Dusty Baker said...

Hopefully we mirror last year when we sucked big smelly donkey balls right up until we were very good.

Fred's Brim said...

more batters for Wright, less for JP

Hideo Nomo said...

NOMO SMASH!

Fred's Brim said...

can we have some realtalk here? I tuned tonight in so I can watch Brandon League

Hideo Nomo said...

Finally got my weird MLB.tv feed that isn't blacked out to work, only to see the Rockies score.

FUCK EVERYTHING EVER.

Dusty Baker said...

Anyone else headed to the Yard tomorrow night?

Orel said...

Of course League walks the bases loaded. Christ.

karen said...

STILL only 1 out.

Fred's Brim said...

THROW STRIKES YOU INKED UP MEATSACK THAT ZOMBIES WON'T EVEN EAT!!!

Orel said...

AAUGH FUCK

karen said...

Good play Dee.

Dusty Baker said...

I wish they would have a take a sucker punch at League give-away night.

Orel said...

It's not like we can even limit them to a one- or two-run lead and have a breath of a chance of coming back. Everything just has to fall apart.

Fred's Brim said...

miracle double play gets us out of the top of the last inning

Orel said...

Fuck, and the Rockets won.

Hideo Nomo said...

Ha! Dee looked like he was gonna kill a motherfucker.

Fred's Brim said...

We can beat LaTroy but maybe we should save it for later

Fred's Brim said...

Hanley raises our hope, reminds us how much our bullpen has sucked

Dusty Baker said...

When do we play AZ again?

Fred's Brim said...

fuck you, bullpen

Fred's Brim said...

Carl swinging at everything

Orel said...

Wow, Hanley & AGon! So we're only going to lose by one?

Dusty Baker said...

A-Gon can't stop hitting HRs and RBI. Everyone else, rub him like a magic lamp.

karen said...

We needed Matty to still be in the 5 spot in the 11th.

Fred's Brim said...

ugh we are a sad bunch

Orel said...

Vintage Dodgers. Bad enough to lose, good enough to lose by only one run.

karen said...

I HATE losing games like this one.

Fred's Brim said...

we are playing like a bunch of brokedick dogs. this has to get better, right?

Fred's Brim said...

gnite all
I am tired of this

Hideo Nomo said...

There's a precedent, at least, FB.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

It gets better.

http://youtu.be/nX1EadNF9v0

Steve Sax said...

We fucking suck. All these extra inning games, and all these extra inning losses.

Get some cojones, boys!

Steve Sax said...

FedEx: 0-for-4, 3 LOB.

Weak sauce.

Hideo Nomo said...

It gets better...when we jettison most of the dead weight in that video.

Except you, Hiro. I still miss you.

Dusty Baker said...

There goes my Hiro (cries)

Hideo Nomo said...

42 is on HBO Family. I'm still impressed by the Branch Rickey Muppet.

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho Cucamonga-iendo would be a cool phrase to use.

Orel said...
