Game 4 Thread: April 10 @ D'backs, 6:40p

Brett Anderson (0-0, -.--) vs. Chase Anderson (0-0, -.--)

Welp, only three games deep into the season (Dodgers sit at 2-1), we start a pitcher whose game day scouting report notes "All eyes will be on the radar gun as Anderson barely reached 90 mph in his final tuneup against the Angels, although he insisted his surgically repaired back is fine." Your re-vamped lineup, ladies and gentlemen! It may well take Adrian Gonzalez hitting 17 home runs tonight to overcome the dread D'bags in what has recently been a tense rivalry, including most recently a dust-up in a Spring Training game.

We here at Sons have always relished noting interesting names in the players we watch, and tonight is no different. Anderson vs. Anderson. B vs. C. We like that symmetry. Which reminds me of the fascinating player name collision I came across during Wednesday night's game as I "watched" it the only way I could: MLB GameDay on my phone while sitting at a bar watching the Angels game.

Y so many Ys these days, boys?

Enjoy the game, and, if not that, the nomenclature.

I am so not a robot. I am, however, up in dis bish.

Dusty Baker said...

So far so good with this sketchy DNS setup.

Dusty Baker said...

Puig has definitely not looked good this season. Unintelligent ABs.

Dusty Baker said...

AGon with a base hit making him 11-14 on the season.

Dusty Baker said...

Aaaaaaaand my internet is jacked up. Back to the radio.

Dusty Baker said...

Tuuuuuuuufffffyyyy!!! Tuuuuuuuufffffyyyy!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Paulie G HR makes it 3-0. That fucker just kills us year in and year out.

Dusty Baker said...

YG yanks one long to make it 3-1!

Dusty Baker said...

God damn man your name is Tuffy. Look at yourself.

Dusty Baker said...

JRoll double ties it up!

Dusty Baker said...

Puig just looks terrible at bat. WTF did he do in the offseason, get a lobotomy?

Dusty Baker said...

Somebody stole his Lobot action figure, I mean.

Dusty Baker said...

Y'all ain't earning the PGT tonight, dear readers. Where my dawgs at?

Dusty Baker said...

Garcia very impressive in his relief appearance. Kid has some stuff.

Orel said...

How did Anderson do?

Orel said...

Our Anderson, that is

Orel said...

Joc almost gave it a ride!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Gah! Joc didn't miss that by much. Time to justify your lame ass being on the roster, Ethier.

Dusty Baker said...

He was shaky to start then settled in. Gave it up to Paul G but had decent enough outing. Rick Flair was pleased.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Damn. Pollock made a nice play to not let that get by him. Otherwise Puig is standing at third.

spank said...

Goddamn!! Gandalf knocked the shit out of that ball earlier.

Dusty Baker said...

Goddammit I want this one.

But, I want them all.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dammit, Grandal.

Orel said...

Not lookin good

Orel said...

WELP

Dusty Baker said...

I just finished eating some delicious Chinese food, and now I'm being served a big ole shit sandwich.

It is way early obviously but this team sure seems like it doesn't have any fire yet.

Dusty Baker said...

Top of the 18th Yankees vs Red Sox!

Orel said...

Going to bot 18, Red Sox 5, Yankees 4. Let's go for 20!

Orel said...

yessssss

Dusty Baker said...

I'm still watching it, too.
