Game 3 Thread: April 8 vs. Padres, 7p


Brandon McCarthy (0-0, -.--) vs. Andrew Cashner (0-0, -.--)

I say we quickly move on from last night's bunglefest, since reaction on Twitter today has been of the "Burn it all down! Season over!" variety.

Speaking of Twitter, Brandon McCarthy, making his official Dodger debut, is quite the Twitterer...

He even Photoshopped his own avatar, seen above. Just look at that detail work. It's almost Sons-esque! Certainly, he deserves to win his debut for this masterpiece alone, don'tcha think?

Steve Sax said...

Mattingly challenges and WINS! Rollins is safe, bases juiced, Dodgers in the lead 3-2

spank said...

what is this?? Spring training??

Steve Sax said...

and just like that, Puig kills the momentum with a GIDP

Steve Sax said...

first pitch swinging on Cashner, really Puig?

And then caught in a baserunning gaffe?

C'mon, Yasiel!

spank said...

looks like J Roll fell asleep and should have gone to third

Steve Sax said...

Gameday still says 3-2, not 4-2

Orel said...

That was...something

Steve Sax said...

Gameday finally makes it 4-2, with the Cashner K

spank said...

karen said...

Behave yourself Spank.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, that HR was totally catchable...maybe not by Kemp however

Steve Sax said...

Kendrick with a no-out single

Steve Sax said...

Gonzalez now batting .727 for the year

Steve Sax said...

Kendrick out from here to Fresno. CS

karen said...

Sax...Agon and JT have been doing the 'selfie' shot after Agon's homers.

spank said...

Gandalf walks.

Steve Sax said...

Steve Sax said...

spank said...

karen said...

Donnie needs to go get his pitcher.

spank said...

yep. bring in The Bomb Squad! Shelling Time!

spank said...

Muttingly goes through pitchers like Wilt Chamberlain went through rubbers.

Greg said...

Paco's a LOOGY.

Paul said...

When does the Sox Yankees game start?

Greg said...

The 1-2 Paco/Pedro Punch.

karen said...

Spanky playing the Chamberlain/rubbers card early in the season.

Paul said...

Nice one Joc!

Paul said...

That song will forever be linked to Tommy in my brain.

Greg said...

This SD pitcher has near- Turk Wendell levels of OCD.

spank said...

i predict the Padres tying the game and Ethier hitting a walkoff foul tip on his shin for an x-ray in the 9th.

D-Lyin' said...

Even more amazing than three dingers in one game. Gonzos fIVE homers only netting him 6rbi. Does anyone get on base anymore?

spank said...

rbi's are overrated.

Orel said...

RBI single? Weak.

(kidding)

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm embarrassed by my last tweet, but it had to be done.

Hideo Nomo said...

52,204. Lotta people wanted in on that hot short-sleeve jacket action.

QuadSevens said...

You were referring to the original, so you're ok.

Orel said...

Total Recall tweet = gold

spank said...

Dusty Baker said...

Heh. Rubbers.
