Game 16 Thread: April 24 @ Padres, 7p

How in the world did @ThkBleu get this picture?
Zack Greinke (2-0, 1.83) vs. Andrew Cashner (1-2, 2.65).

First place versus second place! The verdict is still out on Yasmani Grandal, but couldn't we have thrown in some more cash in the Matt Kemp deal and gotten Cashner or Tyson Ross? Just a thought as we smart from that momentum-killing sweep in San Francisco. Scoring six total runs in a three-game series ain't gonna get it done, boys.

Fortunately, dreamboat Zack has picked up the slack from hopefully-still-recovering-from-that-root-canal Kershaw. In his three starts, Greinke has gone 6, 7, and 6 2/3 innings, with a total of 14 strikeouts and only two walks. Now the Dodgers just have to wake up the bats in cavernous Petco Park, because the pitchers can't do everything.

spnk said...

SPOOOOOOOOOOOONGE

Paul said...

Will we ever have a lineup that spells Booooooze? One can dream.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Alright, if the Rangers can get rid of Josh Hamilton while he's rehabbing both his shoulder and a coke addiction, then we can surely to be able to dump Ethier on the Rangers too right!?

Cliff Beefpile said...

Oops, meant the Angels.

Paul said...

I hope I don't get traded to the Rangers during rehab.

karen said...

No Vinny tonight? I thought he made the Cali trips.

spnk said...

Muttingly gave Vinny the day off. Justin Turner is filling in.

Paul said...

Time to drill Kemp.

spnk said...

come on Puig. sack up. this ain't soccer. walk that shit off

spnk said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

spnk said...

come on Greinke. let's bean some mofos!

karen said...

Well that was like eating a shit sandwich.

karen said...

It seems like the last few seasons our guys are getting thrown at a lot and our pitchers rarely retaliate.

spnk said...

true that,k

Paul said...

See should have hit him. He was gonna go 3 for 4 anyways.

Cliff Beefpile said...

He's gonna go 3 for 4, then misplay a line drive to give up the game-winning run. Because Bison.

karen said...

We all know that I lust after Matty and it scares the shit out of me that he is going to haunt us big time this season but I have NO problem with our guys nailing him when they hit our Boys.

Love...she's a fickle bitch.

spnk said...

Gandalf doubles. could have been a triple. maybe if he hadn't trotted.

Fred's Brim said...

CC gets framed

spnk said...

Wow. Urine comes through with the RBI. about time,mang.

Fred's Brim said...

BOOOOORibe!

I mean Uribe!
1-0 good guys!

Fred's Brim said...

Grandy cut his hair?

Fred's Brim said...

Must have seen the greaseball Gnats and said I gotta fix this

spnk said...

Madres have the shift on for Pederson. weird

spnk said...

did Greinke's head get smaller?

Fred's Brim said...

Greinke hoping for the walk, gets the backward K

Fred's Brim said...

Zach in a spot of trouble

spnk said...

damn. bases juiced.

Fred's Brim said...

Another ground single. with 0 outs, they don't run on CC's noodle arm. Rancho

spnk said...

Greinke played that dude. we needs a double play here

Fred's Brim said...

Big K of Amarista, Cashner up, Greinke with a chance to get out of this

Fred's Brim said...

Cashner's been rubbing lemon juice into his beard and hair, an old lifeguard trick

spnk said...

feeling the hurricane wind Cashner made on that swing earlier from 200 miles away

Fred's Brim said...

and Zach gets the K, 2 outs

Fred's Brim said...

Zach seems to be adding a little extra here

Fred's Brim said...

oh thank fuck for Howie

karen said...

Yep...Sponge worthy.

spnk said...

fuck. almost had a heart attack again.

Dusty Baker said...

You have a link for tonight, Spank?

Fred's Brim said...

buntz

spnk said...

Dusty i'm watching the game on Fox Sports san diego. let me see what i can do

Fred's Brim said...

AG busting it down the line after the K

Dusty Baker said...

I just tried the link you gave the other night and it's working.

Fred's Brim said...

@spnk have you cursed out Dick Enberg yet?

spnk said...

here you go DB

Fred's Brim said...

but the replay reverses the call

spnk said...

ok

karen said...

I am so grateful for Spanky's criminal brilliance.

spnk said...

Not yet,FB, but i'm sure i will soon.

Fred's Brim said...

gnite all, get this win

spnk said...

if Cashner wanted to look like a redneck from the trailer park he succeeded with that haircut.

spnk said...

goddamn crawford. you suck

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dammit, Rollins.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I got an e-mail from Goldstar offering discount tickets to a play called "Urinetown: The Musical", playing in Hollywood. No word as to whether or not it's the official Juan Uribe biography.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Puig, AGon and Kendrick due up. Get some runs, dagnabbit!

Dusty Baker said...

Damn that feed keeps going in and out.

Like me on Neeebs' mom.

karen said...

I love the way Howie went into 2nd trying to break up that double play. Dude plays hard, I dig that.

spnk said...

i just woke up

karen said...

I was going to ask how your heart was holding up, Spank, cause we hadn't heard from you in awhile. Glad you were just snoozing.

Dusty Baker said...

Crawdaddy crawlin'!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Crawford! He crushed that one!

2-0 Dodgers

spnk said...

CRAWDUDE!

Dusty Baker said...

Or whatever cards do.

karen said...

CC launches one!! 2-0 Blue.

Paul said...

Get the money truck and send it to Zacky's house.

Cliff Beefpile said...

That roadkill on the I-10 in Texas is the corpse of the Clippers playoff hopes.

Dusty Baker said...

^crawdads

Paul said...

Who are the Clippers?

Cliff Beefpile said...

The Clippers are Seattle's new basketball team.

Dusty Baker said...

LOL Clippers. Hate those sloppy seconds pretenders.

spnk said...

is it too early in the season to ask Greinke to sack up and complete this game. The Bomb Squad spells doom.

Paul said...

awesome stretch Z!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Whatta DP!

spnk said...

18 million at bat


spnk said...

oh fuck no. don't bring in Troncoso II,Muttingly,you fucking mutt.

spnk said...

wow. nice play Rollins

Cliff Beefpile said...

J-Roll saves a run...for now.

spnk said...

8faints*

karen said...

JRoll saves us in the 8th.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Sit down, Sandy Eggo! I got your "Beat L.A." right here.

spnk said...

we got another run. i'm still not confident.

Cliff Beefpile said...

That magical third run that eluded us the last three days.

karen said...

Yimi coming in as our Closer de Jour.

Hang on tight guys and gals.

karen said...

Blown away looking.

Dusty Baker said...

Major complaint: Hate when the announcers (even Vin) tell us the crowd is chanting "Beat LA." We KNOW. We get it. It's annoying. Don't give it credence by pointing it out.

karen said...

YEAH BABY!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Oh we be makin party alright.

spnk said...

holy shit. we won.

Dusty Baker said...

Dodgers win 3-0.

karen said...

MAN...This feels so much better then the last 3 games.

Hideo Nomo said...

YIMI YIMI YIMI A MAN AFTER MIDNIGHT

Dusty Baker said...

So word is Puig re-tweaked the hammy and likely out this series.

spnk said...

i should take more naps during games if this is the outcome.
