Game 61 Thread: June 12 @ Padres, 7p

Clayton Kershaw (5-3, 3.36) vs Odrisamer Despaigne (3-4, 4.72).

Odrisamer Despaigne? I'm getting desperado migraines just thinking about tonight's game. There were a lot of concerns earlier on this season, but everyone is now calling Clayton Kershaw restored, having gone three starts and 22 innings while allowing only two runs. I suppose that was just a misdiagnosed reaper. Meanwhile, the young 28-year-old Despaigne is 0-2 in two starts with a 5.84 ERA against the Dodgers, so allow me some preordained ageisms and predict that this pitching matchup should work in our favor (even though the Dodgers are just 10-15 on the road).

penis readied orgasm

karen said...

No Vinny? I thought he made the Cali trips. Also, I'm confused about what Orel is trying to communicate ^^^ can someone help out here?

spnk said...

i know and see nothing. i'm just glad i'm able to watch todays game and participate in a GT and drink tons of booze and curse as loud as i wants and run nekked down the streets with a fish and....

Orel said...

Just following Sax's anagramming ways, Karen

Orel said...

Hope Despaigne never pitches to Oyster Pubes

Orel said...

Woc Wockerson

Fred's Brim said...

Fred's Brim said...

beer check: sculpin longfin lager

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I mean ballast point longfin lager

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

and lots of 'em

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty checking into dis bish. Yeah why no Vinny? Is SD that hard for him to access? Disappointed. Maybe that's training us for post-Vin years (hopefully in 2027).

Still not believing I can actually watch these...what do you call them....games on TV.

Orel said...

Is it getting Dusty in here?

Fred's Brim said...

Tha Kid gets Norris after a battle

karen said...

That's gonna leave a mark

Fred's Brim said...

fucker!

spnk said...

Spank Despaigne. i like the sound of that. it's regal.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Don't plunk Kemp, apparently he don't like dat shit

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton's gonna be pissing blood tonight

Fred's Brim said...

hehe I like it, spank

Dusty Baker said...

Nome, what is this about?

"Large helping of Twitter beef being served right now in our timeline." -SoSG twitter feed

spnk said...

not only is Vinny gone. where the fuck is Dick Enberg?! that bastard.

Fred's Brim said...

shit

Orel said...

Clay OK?

spnk said...

i gots family attending this game. did i get invited to go? fuck no. they know i'd start some shit up in that bitch.

Orel said...

Too many pitches

Dusty Baker said...

Orel handling that call terribly re hit on Kershaw. You're not a doc, don't speculate. Most commentators know not to do so until more info.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

You should have come over to my crib so we could watch on the patio

Fred's Brim said...

Howie rawbed

spnk said...

Middlebrooks Robinson. that fucker.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Despanky has a crooked cranium

Fred's Brim said...

@DB can I come over too?

karen said...

@Spanky...Those fans are not at all nice when you go into their house wearing the enemy gear.

Fred's Brim said...

Nice one, Spank, even though it's about the other team

spnk said...

sounds great,Dust. someday,holmes. someday.

spnk said...

i never wear my team colors. i represent vocally.

spnk said...

plus i lived in San Diego for several years. i hate the people and felt like a trader the whole time i was there.

Orel said...

Party at Spank's!

spnk said...

and now back to the game. shit. a commercial.

karen said...

Spanky...It could have been the singing of 'We Are the Champions' between innings that pissed off the natives.

Orel said...

I forget, did the Padres trade for B.J. & Melvin together?

spnk said...

big difference in the Padres announcers attitudes between the earlier season series and now. i hear nothing now about how great the Padres bats are whereas before that was all they talked about.

spnk said...

i think the Uptons were traded seperately dude

spnk said...

next time i do a nekked run with a fish i'll be singing We Are The Champions

karen said...

Puig looking a little gimpy going down the line

spnk said...

2 on for AGon

Orel said...

Thanks Spank

spnk said...

1-0 LA!

spnk said...

pretty horrible throw there AJ

Fred's Brim said...

yeah, not good, looked like a cutter

Steve Sax said...

Good guys up 1-0!

Meanwhile, Giants being no-hit through 3 (AZ 1-0)

Fred's Brim said...

@spank, what's a SD crowd like, besides filled with Dodger fans? Will they get drunk and fight or just sit there and think about fish tacos and gaslamps?

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton hitting 96

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Clayton, 56 pitches through 3. He needs a quick, clean inning or 3

Fred's Brim said...

Turner hits a long single

Fred's Brim said...

oof, Dre almost safe on the slow bouncer, looked like a tie

Fred's Brim said...

of course Donnie doesn't challenge that

Fred's Brim said...

Puig gimpy after his infield single, Turner gingerly walking around, Rollins terrible

spnk said...

wow. Ellis got a hold of that one.

Steve Sax said...

Ellis has less suckitude than Rollins (who Kd)!

2-0

Fred's Brim said...

Upton plays a floating liner from AJ poorly, JT scores, 2-0 good guys

MR.F said...

I'll take it

Fred's Brim said...

Clayton says "fuck a pitch count"

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Howie

MR.F said...

"Melvin Upton Jr. was a player to be named later... by himself."

spnk said...

FB..haha. that's pretty much how the Padres fans are. Really passive. at one game i attended though the Padres were blowing out the Dodgers. i think it was '92 or '93. anyways a Padres fan went rogue on his team and started heckling them because the Padres pitcher thought he was Koufax and pitched like it was the World Series in the bottom of the ninth. i can't remember the name of the dodgers hitter but the dude hit a homerun off this pitcher and the Padres fan went ballistic with the snark. "that's what you get for dicking around" is the last thing the dude said and he split. it was fucking hilarious. the only cool mofo in San Diego.

Fred's Brim said...

that'll work

Fred's Brim said...

haha that's awesome. He probably still denies that Ken Caminiti was juicing

Fred's Brim said...

how did Joc not beat that out?

Fred's Brim said...

Puig spikes Myers but is safe, both are limping

Fred's Brim said...

Idiots talking about Puig stealing. He better not be stealing with that hammy

karen said...

That ump made the same exact bad strike call on JRoll.

Fred's Brim said...

I thought Upton was going to biff that one

Orel said...

There's like zero chance they'll move Seager to another position and extend Howie, right?

Fred's Brim said...

Nice bunt by Spankdaspawnye but also a nice play by Clayton

karen said...

Orel...Is Howie on a 1 year contract??

Fred's Brim said...

good question, Orel

Where has Olivera been playing in the minors? I keep reading that he's a better second baseman than 3B. I also read that Seager is probably *fine* at short. But this front office wants more than *fine* I assume. Rookie shortstops are scary. Justin Turner at short is scary too. So I dunno

I think my preference would be Olivera, Seager, Howie (if Olivera is actually decent). If they don't resign Howie, maybe something like Seager, unnamed SS, Olivera?

Fred's Brim said...

@karen he's got one year left on his current deal, Rollins too. Something magical would have to happen for Rollins to be resigned

spnk said...

goddamn Rollins sucks ass.

Orel said...

Karen: Technically he's on the last year of a four-year, $33.5M contract. Obviously the first three years were with the Angels

Orel said...

DAMMIT

Orel said...

Seager is 6'4". No idea where else he can play

karen said...

Well, I'm all screwed up cause I thought JRoll was on a one year to make room for Seager.

Orel said...

Rollins is also on a one-year, thank goodness. I guess Olivera is supposed to replace him?

Fred's Brim said...

I had to look to see if maybe Rollins was better vs lefties or righties but he is equally terrible against both

I am still on JRoll's side, I haven't given up on him, but man it's been a rough season so far

karen said...

I wonder if I'll ever be able to relax again when Matty comes to the plate. The haunting is coming, I'm telling y'all.

Fred's Brim said...

I think Olivera for 2B or 3B, Seager at SS, maybe for a few years before they move him to 3B where a 6-4 dude with average range should be playing

spnk said...

Damn. Kershaw owned Kemp right there.

karen said...

Solarte got a hold of that one

Fred's Brim said...

@karen I feel it too. I don't worry so much about these situations, but there will be a night when he's hitting against Yimi or League in a tight game and he'll kill us, maybe more than once

spnk said...

JT with the glove.

(cries a river)

Fred's Brim said...

nice play by Turner, crazy slide by Middlebrooks

Orel said...

Interesting night at Chase Field....

Orel said...

NEVERMIND

Fred's Brim said...

hehe

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, OREL!!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

7th inning rally coming... I can feel it in my bones

karen said...

Don't say it, Orel!!! Jinx rule applies..

Fred's Brim said...

kind of interesting PIT-PHI game: no score through 10 but 19 combined hits

spnk said...

AJ with another hit? holy shit it's a Christmas miracle in June.

Fred's Brim said...

good bunt, Clayton

spnk said...

Orel done fucked up. that's a wrap. you can bet on it.

spnk said...

break this shit open Puig!

spnk said...

RA for AGon

Orel said...

RANCHO RANCHO

Orel said...

I didn't say no-hitter!

Fred's Brim said...

gift strike there

spnk said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

karen said...

Ump fucked with Agon's head

Fred's Brim said...

AG is PISSED

Fred's Brim said...

and so am I

karen said...

That's the 3rd time that ump has called that outside strike tonight.

spnk said...

crapola

karen said...

shit

Fred's Brim said...

fuck Barmes. How does that dude always kill us? He barely deserves a major league job

spnk said...

that homerun pitch was served up with a baked potato and steamed broccoli. whatever that means.

Fred's Brim said...

@Orel, can you give one of the SOSG interns an assignment? I feel like whenever we say Rancho Ardiendo (or some Ranchoish synonym), it usually ends poorly for us, worse than what league averages would have you expect. Can you have somebody look through the site history and come up with some numbers to prove or disprove that?

It may be my favorite term in the SOSG glossary but I feel like it's bad luck

Fred's Brim said...

117 pitches for Clayton. It was a battle but he battled well

Fred's Brim said...

Keep it in the expansive park, Yimi

Fred's Brim said...

Yimi will be fine this inning but will give up a homer when he comes back out next inning

karen said...

Well we knew that was coming. Shit Yimi!

spnk said...

stoopid. goddamnjesusmaryand joseph. what the fuck

karen said...

Yep.

spnk said...

Muttingly you fucking genius

Fred's Brim said...

what a bunch of clowns, like a couple of monkeys fucking a football

Orel said...

What the hell

karen said...

Poor Clay. He pitched his butt off.

Fred's Brim said...

son of a bitch

2 pitches, losing

spnk said...

FUCKING IDIOT STUPID MOTHERFUCKER. SHIT

Orel said...

@FB: I'll get HR right on that.

Fred's Brim said...

shut the fuck up Nomar

Fred's Brim said...

"You could see this playing out"

spnk said...

FUCK. and i was having such a great evening too

FUCK YOU MATTINGLY

Fred's Brim said...

that popup was AJ's fault, he should have gone to get it or yelled at Yimi to get the fuck out of the way

Fred's Brim said...

thank you, Matty

spnk said...

i just don't understand why come you take out Kershaw with two out in the inning.

karen said...

HOWIE MAY BE OUR REDEMPTION TONIGHT!!

Fred's Brim said...

tough error, indeed

karen said...

Tied up at 3.

spnk said...

JT redeemed.


Orel said...

We are MKWs for this inning!

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy, JT

QuadSevens said...

I tuned in just in time to see AGon get gone and Yimi blow it. Now tied. Let's get these mofos!

spnk said...

FUCK YOU DRE. FUCK YOU

karen said...

Orel...okay!!!!

spnk said...

i know what the fuck i'm doing y'all

karen said...

Spanky lighting the fire under Dre! Good job, Spank!!

QuadSevens said...

TOOTBLAN for Turner.

Fred's Brim said...

what
the
fuck

spnk said...

looks like i picked the right time to start drinking heavily

Fred's Brim said...

that was pathetic

sliding wouldnt have done shit

Fred's Brim said...

it would have been nice for turner to tag up and be at third after that fly ball

Fred's Brim said...

but noooooooo

Fred's Brim said...

Aladdin Bail Bonds

Stay klassy, San Diego

QuadSevens said...

Ellis works a walk despite another bad called strike.

Fred's Brim said...

this ump

nice makeup call

Orel said...

Turner taketh. Giveth. Taketh.

Orel said...

Everth?

Fred's Brim said...

oh god, Hatcher alert

spnk said...

looked outside

karen said...

Eithier's run counts!

spnk said...

we got the run but..anyways. whatever. i need a drink.

Fred's Brim said...

Dre scores, AJ slow

Orel said...

We forgot about Guerrero in our earlier conversation

Fred's Brim said...

@spank pour one for me. you got any of that turpentine punch left?

QuadSevens said...

AJ should never go first to third.

spnk said...

i got your turpentine back FB.

karen said...

That just may be the hardest that I've ever seen Dre run

Orel said...

I mean we're MKWs for only half an inning

spnk said...

here's that Kemp moment y'all were talking about earlier.

spnk said...

Kemp'd.

whew

Orel said...

WHEW

Orel said...

DAMMIT

karen said...

Maybe we're MKW's this half inning, too.....

spnk said...

i was too occupied watching AJ's slow burn to catch DRe hustling.

karen said...

Vagiants lose

Fred's Brim said...

man, ump, you need to go to your hotel room tonight and drink yourself to sleep

Fred's Brim said...

Hatcher with an OK outing for him. He looked good and was a squeezed pitch away from a great inning

Orel said...

The Liberator

QuadSevens said...

Let's do this Libby!

spnk said...

grow a beard Donnie. your chin looks like shit

QuadSevens said...

These umps are terrible!

Fred's Brim said...

oof somebody remove the pills from that ump's toiletries case

spnk said...

one more inning then i can have a heart attack and another beer.

Fred's Brim said...

thank fuck for the expanse that is dogfood field

Fred's Brim said...

ugh, FB shouldn't be up this late

karen said...

Hey FB....You guys are in the city, right? Not upstate where the bad guys are?

karen said...

Bottom of the 9th...Hold yer breath

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

here we go...

spnk said...

one out. Vegetable Lasagna up.

D-Lyin' said...

Lot of comments for a Friday night game. Don't you guys have bar fights to attend?

Orel said...

One more!

Orel said...

Strikeout, not bar fight

D-Lyin' said...

Sit down will-do

Orel said...

Mark Saxon ‏@markasaxon

Kenley Jansen is throwing 91-92 mph this inning, quite a bit down from his norm. Still working though.

D-Lyin' said...

I'm taking sidecar in San Fran for first time
So if I disappear submit this to the cops

spnk said...

*throws beer bottle at Delino*
