Game 1 Thread: April 6 vs. Padres, 1p

Clayton Kershaw (0-0, -.--) vs. James Shields (0-0, -.--).

Welcome to Opening Day, Mixed Emotions Edition!

Opening Day! Hells yeah, the wait is over!
Matt Kemp as a Padre. weird weird weird weird weird weird
Clayton Kershaw! Cy Young #3! MVP #1! In Vin's name this guy deserves a World Series ring. Maybe it starts today.
#FreeNancyBea
Who wants the D? We'll miss Hanley and Dee, but this special together-for-one-year-only Jimmy Rollins/Howie Kendrick DP combination sure excites the imagination.
boooooooooooooooooooo
oooooooooooooooooooo
oooooooooooooooooooo
oooooooooooooooooooo
oooooooooooooooooooo
oooooooooooooooooooo
It's your turn, Joc! No pressure or anything, but the team needs you to fill Kemp's shoes while maintaining a positive UZR/DRS/TZ. You can do it!

Kershaw: Jon SooHoo/Dodgers

Kemp admits he cares about the reception he'll receive today. "I left my heart and soul on the field for the Dodgers."

PUCKER

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty up in dis bish! By dis bish I mean a posh brunch spot for pre-game cocktails.

QuadSevens said...

Quad and Mrs. Quad are in the park! Let's go Dodgers!

Orel said...

Four Sons and Quad! It's a party!

Hideo Nomo said...

Quad Sons!

Hideo Nomo said...

Green shirts for ushers and ticket-takers at DS. This ownership is matching every good move with a baffling move.

Orel said...

Maybe because they'll be more noticeable in a sea of Dodger Blue gear?

Hideo Nomo said...

At least they're not orange, I guess?

spank said...

PGT up!!

spank said...

Btway....FUCK THE PADRES!

QuadSevens said...

Nancy Bea is tickling the organ keys as I type! Woohoo!

Orel said...

Nice. At least they knew to feature her on Opening Day

Hideo Nomo said...

The FNB movement will stand down for today, but we need to closely monitor this situation.

Orel said...

You know it's Easter because Zombie Delino has risen from the grave

karina said...

Well, Matt Kemp with his first RBI of the season


:(

Wicks said...

Why shift with Matt up? That's a terrible strategy.

Steve Sax said...

Leadoff single from Rollins, thoroughly wasted.

1-0 Pads through 1

Fred's Brim said...

WOOP!
Howdy SOSGes and SOSGettes!

Steve Sax said...

1) can someone please kick these Delino posts below the Opening Day post. It's ridiculous. It belongs on his Facebook page, not here!

2) who the heck is injured?

spank said...

Mart Hart

Fred's Brim said...

Is that Carl who was hurt? If Dre has voodoo dolls for the other outfielders, going after CC first probably isn't the smartest move

Fred's Brim said...

Neeebs' mom said that Dusty had a foul tip

Steve Sax said...

Pederson Ks meekly

Wicks said...

Puig batting second. What do we think folks? I don't think it will last long.

Wicks said...

A-GONE!!!!!

Steve Sax said...

All right! 2-1 good guys

rbnlaw said...

Answer sent.

Steve Sax said...

Why are there empty seats on the reserved level by the foul pole?!?!

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!

Fuck you,Matt Kemp!!

Steve Sax said...

Kemp again! 3-2 Padres

Wicks said...

kemp :(

Orel said...

Matty's killing us, huh?

Orel said...

AWO

Orel said...

Vin talking about heartbreaking years.

Orel said...

Molly Knight ‏@molly_knight 7s8 seconds ago

Hanley Ramirez just hit a grand slam. That's two Ramirez dingers on the day.

spank said...

Ethier hurt his pride on that great catch by Pederson.

Orel said...

15-day DL?

Hideo Nomo said...

Hey guys! Finally got the game running and bumped D-line down. Sorry, D, but Opening Day is sacred.

Orel said...

Sorry, Jerkhole

Orel said...

Kershaw with 9 Ks through six. 99 pitches

Steve Sax said...

my stringer just sent me pictures of the new Dodger usher uniforms--green top with beige skirt/pants? HORRIBLE CALL

rbnlaw said...

This is not going the way I pictured.

Orel said...

Joc shows bunt. Just what we want to see

Orel said...

Joc double!

Steve Sax said...

Puig 0-for-2 in the 2-hole
Uribe 0-for-3 in the 6-hole

Orel said...

A.J. can't drive Joc in from third

Steve Sax said...

Mattingly goes to the bullpen after six innings of Kershaw?

WHAT INSANITY IS THIS?

Orel said...

AWO. AWO's everywhere

Steve Sax said...

AJ unfortunately can't drive anyone in from anywhere

Steve Sax said...

And Turner wastes the Pederson double / SB. And now we have no Kershaw.

Great. Great sandwich.

Orel said...

Excellent obscure '80s reference, Sax

Orel said...

A wee bit of pitch framing by Ellis there

Orel said...

Dodgers going down meekly in the 7th so far. AGon up

Cliff Beefpile said...

For all the changes, the line-up is doing a spot-on impression of last year's team, so far.

Orel said...

Here's another chance for them

Orel said...

HOWIE! Tie game!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Padres get KEMPed!

Steve Sax said...

A-Gone and Kendrick, man. Wow.

3-3 game!

Steve Sax said...

@Orel 3:18p: Thanks.

So how does it end?

Orel said...

Kemp gets the bobble assist. Andrew Friedman smiles

Alex said...

Mic check 1,2,1,2

Happy Opening Day, SoSG!

*nut checks TWC*

RUN(s)!!!

Steve Sax said...

Kemp with a defensive gaffe...are they calling it an error? not yet at least....

Orel said...

Whoop whoop whoop!

Orel said...

IBB SVS. AOK!

QuadSevens said...

Everyone loves a 2 out rally!

Orel said...

Ugh. Uribe useless today

Steve Sax said...

Uribe now 0-for-4

Orel said...

Boos for Kemp now, per Twitter

Cliff Beefpile said...

Cut yer hair, Kemp!

OK, it's just fucking weird rooting against Matty.

Cliff Beefpile said...

There's our new and improved double play combo!

Orel said...

weird weird weird weird weird weird

Steve Sax said...

great double play Uribe. Almost redeems the 0-for-4.

And Kendrick with a great turn on that DP

3-3. mid 7

Steve Sax said...

why does blogger keep asking me if I'm a robot?

this does not compute

Orel said...

Something about improved defense

Orel said...

Just reboot yourself, Sax

Steve Sax said...

slo-mo replay of that DP is great on TWC SportsNet.

too bad no one can see it

Steve Sax said...

AJ Ellis can't even sac bunt well

Steve Sax said...

who is this PH again? Didn't he used to play for us?

Alex said...

Dre walking up to Bowie? I'll allow it

Orel said...

Thought the Padres' outfield was supposed to have janky D. We'll take it

Alex said...

Error(s)!!!

Steve Sax said...

Pederson doesn't go, but Ethier sneaks out the infield hit anyway

Steve Sax said...

@Alex: what was Ethier's Bowie walk-up song?

Absolute Beginners?

Cliff Beefpile said...

J-ROLLED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELL YEAH!

Orel said...

J-ROLL!

Steve Sax said...

JIMMY FUCKING ROLLINS BABY

D-Lyin' said...

Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Hideo Nomo said...

IT'S SO COOL TO NOT HATE JIMMY ROLLINS HOMERS.

Steve Sax said...

whoops my bad: it's mid-8

Steve Sax said...

Puig hacking like a madman

D-Lyin' said...

No need to hustle on that one

Steve Sax said...

Vin still amazed at Rollins' eight-pitch AB that started 0-2

D-Lyin' said...

To quote David Bowie "and I absolutely love you"

Alex said...

@saxy Heyyyyyoo!

It was' Fame'; 'Changes' would have be more apropos..

Alex said...

101

spank said...

Jimmy Fucking Rollins!!

Eat your hear out,Kemp!!

Steve Sax said...

Puig BB, then SB

Steve Sax said...

6-3 Dodgers, going to the ninth

Steve Sax said...

Hatcher immediately hits Gyorko to leadoff the inning. Great.

Orel said...

Hatcher HBP. Here we go...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Hanley who?

Steve Sax said...

UJTD

Orel said...

DP! One more!

Steve Sax said...

WIN WIN WIN
