Game 8 Thread: April 6 vs. Giants, 5p

"They say I have a Fathead. They are right."

Zack Greinke (1-0, 3.60) vs. Matt Cain (0-0, 3.60).

Fee fi fo fum, I smell a team from up north trying to sweep the Dodgers today, so let's hope our Boys in Blue haven't traded their bats for some magic beans. Cain is trying to recover from an off year in which he regressed in virtually every category, and Greinke is looking to go deeper than the five innings he lasted in his first start, against the Padres.

It's Yasiel Puig Fathead night at Dodger Stadium (first 15,000 ticketed kids 14 & under in attendance) and — OMFG — you can actually watch the game on TV. It's on ESPN, which means no Vin, but a starving man isn't going to argue which cut of steak he gets. Or something like that.

I'd like the fathead steak, please.

Dusty Baker said...

I'd like a Dogfish Head 120 minute to go with that.

Steve Sax said...

Ring 'em up, Zack! Strikes out Posey to end the inning with a man on first.

0-0 through 1/2 inning

Steve Sax said...

Hanley is hacking

Steve Sax said...

My Man everybody!!!

Wicks said...

My boy is back! Have not seen the avatar for soooooo long.

karen said...

I HATE Diablo Pagan. You can hit him in the head if you want to, Zack.

karen said...

Damn. Should have gone with the head shot.

Dusty Baker said...

I respect what Karina is saying, but I want Zack to hit Diablo Pagan in the nads.

Dusty Baker said...

I meant Karen, not Karina. But I'm sure they both agree that Pagan should be hit.

Steve Sax said...

Kempy, baby. Man we needed that. First lead all series.

Dusty Baker said...

Don't fucking talk to him, A-Gon. Pound his ass.

karen said...

@DB...I love Karina too, but my HATE for Diablo out weighs it.

Steve Sax said...

Awesome pitch by Greinke there to end the top of the third!

Dusty Baker said...

6 Ks through three scoreless innings for Kid G.

Dusty Baker said...

(feeling the double K hate)

karen said...

DB...Just saw the correction. Yeah, I'm good with a nad shot.

Orel said...

Charley did a reverse-Steiner on Kemp's HR.

karen said...

Uh, yeah. Diablo can bite me.

Dusty Baker said...

You're damn right it's a beautiful night in LA. Every goddamn night in LA is beautiful, Sunday Night Baseball culero.

Ryan Braun is calling his roid dealer as we speak.

karen said...

Dusty...Are you at the yard?

Dusty Baker said...

Naw,home tonight. Maybe that's why we're doing well. (cries)

Speaking of, where the hell is MR F these days?

karen said...

Has Mr. F been here at all this season? I don't remember hearing from him either.

If your out there Mr. F...we need your good karma!!

Dusty Baker said...

I just messaged a brother on Fbook.

karen said...

I wish they would quit giving Thompson props on that homerun. The prick cheated. Everyone knows that.

karen said...

Zack looking Kid like.

Orel said...

Didn't Mr. F pop his head in a thread a few days back?

spank said...

Score more runs goddammit!

Steve Sax said...

4-2. one out, Hanley on third, Ethier up but he fouled the first pitch off his calf so he's hurting.

And Ethier does the trick! Nice deep ball to right-center that just missed being a HR. 5-2 Dodgers.

karen said...

Eithier delivers the run cause Spank asked so nicely!!!

Steve Sax said...

5-2 through 6. not feeling good about this just yet, boys and girls.

Orel said...

I nominate Spank for ambassador.

Dusty Baker said...

Secretary of State Spanky

Steve Sax said...

Withrow Ks the side in the 7th!

Dusty Baker said...

Damn, CWith, that was downright nasty.

cc: Ms. Jackson

Alex Cora said...

Yeah I can watch a game on TV. Screw you TWC.

karen said...

Can I get an Amen that we don't have Belisario anymore!!

Steve Sax said...

uribe breaks his bat for a popout to second

Dusty Baker said...

Amen, sister!

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers go quietly in the seventh. 5-2 LA

Dusty Baker said...

For the record, I did not go quietly. I'm getting fired up for the Game of Thrones season opener and drinking all sorts of expensive ales.

Dusty Baker said...

Can we just throw at White James Loney already? He keeps getting on.

Steve Sax said...

shot to kruk in the booth with a crazy mini-bat that looks like he stole it from a whac-a-mole game

BJ Killeen said...

Steve Sax said...

BJ Killeen said...

karen said...

Life she is good.

BJ Killeen said...

Steve Sax said...
