Game 11 Thread: April 18 vs. Rockies, 6p

Greinke ponders third-world debt forgiveness

Zack Greinke (1-0, .69) vs. Jordan Lyles (1-0, 2.25)

Having moved into a tie for first place with the win last night, Dodgers get another crack at the heretofore red-hot Rockies. Just when I was getting ready to start bellyaching oh, say, about five games ago, we've reeled off five in a row and now WE are red hot, it would seem. Only the Mets have a longer streak at six. Wait, if you count losing streaks, the Hated Ones take the cake as they have lost EIGHT in a row (0-5 at Phone Monopoly Park).

While Dodger pitching hasn't exactly been picture perfect (pitcher perfect?), including Brandon McCarthy's and Clayton Kershaw's yin/yang performances, it's certainly gotten the job done. Greinke, however, has been the best so far, so we'll look to him to keep the pressure on the Rox.

If there's one thing we do here at Sons, it's to beat a dead horse. If there are two things we do, the second is to post gratuitous pictures of boobs in order to keep up a win streak. If there's a third thing...well, that's pretty much it.

karen said...

Vinny called his first game 66 years ago today.

The best there ever was, is or will be.

Thank you Mr. Scully your voice has been the soundtrack of my life.

Alex said...

Can't tell if Karen is making a Bret Hart reference...

karen said...

Dodgers get out of top of 1 cheaply enough allowing only 1 run. Zack not looking to settled in.

karen said...

Alex...I don't get it. Who is Bret Hart??

Steve Sax said...

Where I am, it just hailed. And then turned to rain.

And now it's sunny.

Should that be the narrative for tonight's game?!

karen said...

Oh good! We get to play another game of Where's Saxy!!

Steve Sax said...

1-0 Rox through 1

Alex said...

Steve Sax said...

@karen: I'm not at the game. Call it a Turkish prison

Hideo Nomo said...

Sax's Instagram selfies are tagged "Disputed Zone."

karen said...

Thanks Alex. No, don't think I was referencing that guy!

karen said...

Saxy...At least Turkish prisons get TWC. To bad we can't say that for most of the free world.

Dusty Baker said...

Sax likes Turkish prisons, and when Scraps rubs on his leg.

Dusty Baker said...

Orel said...

The Ecstasy of AGon

karen said...

That was a beaut of a curveball that Zack just broke off to Tulo.

Hideo Nomo said...

Tonight's boob model is named Pinky Tang, which sounds like a name spank would make up.

karen said...

^or date.

Orel said...

Dusty Baker said...

I'm going to post some saggy boobs if we keep this crap up.

Dusty Baker said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

Can't believe Sabado Gigante is ending its run. Que lastima. What else am I going to do on Saturday nights to learn Spanish whilst getting hammered and yelling at the TV?

Steve Sax said...

Shit, I leave you guys for a second and it's 4-3?! Come on Dodgers!

Dusty Baker said...

Sax owns up to his role in the Rox comeback.

Alex said...

Some sad news Dusty, loved me some El Chacal!

karen said...

Dust...You can hold out for the Dodgers Spanish broadcast. That should meet all of your criteria.

Dusty Baker said...

Puig double and JRoll scores!

Dusty Baker said...

Karen you are on a ROLL tonight. Well said!

Steve Sax said...

Puig baby! 5-3

Dusty Baker said...

Three doubles! 6-3 Blue guys.

Dusty Baker said...

Pod Rays lost.

Dusty Baker said...

Puig's hammy is barking. Not cool early in the season. Dude, you're no Uribe.

MR.F said...

Runs yay

spank said...

Yasmany Tomas Lasorda

karen said...

I know we all feel this way but I'm gonna say it anyway...Mr. F you have been missed!! So glad you're on board tonight!

karen said...

JP channels his inner Kershaw with the Uncle Charlie on Tulo.

Dusty Baker said...

True words from Karen, Mr F.

Dusty Baker said...

Did Uribe just steal second?!?

Orel said...

Better be the lead on SportsCenter

karen said...

Dusty...I am somewhat in shock, but yes I think he did.

Dusty Baker said...

I feel like this is some Wellesian joke about alines invading being perpetuated on those of us who can't watch the game. There is no way Uribe stole a base.

karen said...

I'm sure it was a missed sign or some sort of unexplained freak of nature event but I really think he did.

Dusty Baker said...

Did Uribe just slip and end up on second?

Hideo Nomo said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOBS!

Steve Sax said...

We win!

karen said...

Dusty...I think maybe his eyes were closed and he just lost his way. Can't think of any other explanation.

Hideo Nomo said...

Here's the weird bit: I was watching the game, but was looking away when Uribe stole the base. Still not sure it happened.

Dusty Baker said...

If Nomo didn't see it, it didn't happen.

Hideo Nomo said...

That means The Godfather never happened.

spank said...

^

what What WHAT

Alex said...

Something, something, schrodinger's stolen base

Also, boob(s).

*Makes party*

Dusty Baker said...

Don't toy with us, Gnomes.
