Game 17 Thread: April 25 @ Padres, 5:30p


Brandon McCarthy (2-0, 4.50) vs. Ian Kennedy (0-0, 0.00)

Fresh off their series-opening win against the Pod Rays last night, the Dodgers look to continue their winning ways (well, ok, at least for the last game) and, potentially take the championship belt from the reigning BWHC campeones.

It's early, but these games against contenders are just as important now as they are in September. As always, Petco Park = Chavez Ravine South, and tonight should be no different. Great to see so much Azul in the crowd there in San Diego. It is even chillier there than it is here in LA, but visiting Dodger fans can bask in the warmth of a tenuous first place position.

Yours truly is heading to a local bar in order to be able to watch this one live on - what do they call it - video. Hope more than 30% of our beloved readers can do the same. Make it so!

MLB Network is televising the game...along with Time Warner Cable SNLA.

Dusty Baker said...

When MLB Network televises they black it out in local blackout zone, unfortunately.

Johnny Blanchard said...

Yeah this excellent writer broke it down...

39 years ago today Rick Monday saved our flag from being burned in the outfield at beautiful Dodger Stadium. Probably one of the proudest moments by a non-Dodger ever at The Ravine.

Thanks Rick. I don't always agree with my government but I absolutely love our country.

Dusty Baker said...

I almost always disagree with our government, but - exactly.

karen said...

Ned Coletti is now one of the, I guess I'll call him 'contributors' on the SNLA pregame shows and I never know when to believe him or if he's just towing the company line (in other words blowing smoke up our asses).

karen said...

I love messing with Ian Kennedy. The freaking mofo.

spnk said...

McCarthy tossing up BP to friars in bottom of 1st.

Dusty Baker said...

Am i watching a diff feed than Spank?!?

karen said...

All tied at 3 in bot of 1 with 1 out. Is Tommy on this trip?? Maybe he can come in in relief.

Dusty Baker said...

I guess so. I am in a bar in Pasadena that has a DNS workaround Apple TV solution on multiple screens.

spnk said...

i'm watching the game on Fox Sports San Diego. MLB Network blacked out the Dodgers here tambien

karen said...

Is McCarthy the dude we signed for 4 years? If so, I'll be right back, gotta run down to the corner and buy some crack.

karen said...

AGONE hits a 3 banger over 27's head in right. 6-3 Blue. Kennedy at 53 pitches through 1 2/3.

spnk said...

gonzo,motherfuckers! GONZO!!

spnk said...

bring me back a rock,karen!!

karen said...

You know I'll always share with you, S!!

Greg said...

McCarthy kinda looks like Norman Bates.

karen said...

Ok...All showers are off the table.

karen said...

Buh Bye Kennedy. Howie goes yard and Blue is up 8-3 with 1 out in 5th. Raining in LoCal, almost a legal game.

karen said...

Uribe goes yard for 2nd Dodgers homer in a rainy 5th inning. 10-3 Good Guys.

MR.F said...

I enjoy these runs that don't involve me going to the bathroom too often.

karen said...

McCarthy sits 'em down in order in bot of 5. Game is legal but rain seems to have stopped.

karen said...

Mr. F...Hehehe, my favorite kind of runs too.

karen said...

McCarthy being McCarthy. 3 run homer to Upton. 10-6 Blue.

karen said...

McCarthy coming out of the game. Looks like an injury.

spnk said...

McCarthy ain't bueno for shit.

karen said...

^Besides his pride.

spnk said...

ERA injury

karen said...

And Santos brings in a whole new fresh hell.

karen said...

No lead is big enough for this arson squad.

BJ Killeen said...

At a party. Just checked the score. Dammit. Missing a great game. 😥

karen said...

@BJ...Stick with the party. Trust me on this one.
