Game 87 Thread: July 9 vs. Phillies, 7p


Zack Greinke (7-2, 1.48) vs. Severino Gonzalez (3-2, 8.28)

The big story of this game isn't Zack Greinke's scoreless innings streak, or the chance to take the series from the Phillies, or even the Philly Cheesesteak Dog. No, the big story is that, for the first time since SoSG Fest 2014, four Sons (Sax, Orel, Dusty, and me) will be in the same place at the same time. Yes, even at the softball tournament, there were only three Sons in attendance.

Of course, with this many Sons together at a game, we're meddling with some seriously bad juju. To counter that, we'll offer up a couple of our lucky totems from this year:


Lucky Dreamboat Zack!


Lucky boobs!

Hope that helps!

And so it begins.

Steve Sax said...

Dusty's fingers are smoking.

Hideo Nomo said...

Who knew "get a hot dog" was a euphemism?

Steve Sax said...

Still no Orel.

(Story of my life)

Hideo Nomo said...

THREE SONS DOESN'T HAVE THE SAME RING TO IT, OREL.

karen said...

Is talking about Sponge's 31 scoreless inning streak considered a jinx a la a no hitter?

**Being ignorant and having to ask protects me from spreading the bad juju if a faux pas has occurred**

Steve Sax said...

"Is Puig playing today?" --Clueless Sax

Dusty Baker said...

For you ladies out there, we are currently sitting behind the visitors pen and staring at Puig's arse. For you.

Hideo Nomo said...

Visitor's peen.

Dusty Baker said...

Dream come true playing MPQ w Sax at the game.

Cliff Beefpile said...

PWEEEEEEEEEEEEEG! 2-0 Blue!

"Still no Orel.

(Story of my life)" - Sax


I hear ya. My scoreless inning streak puts Greinke to shame.

karen said...

Phew...Just a long strike...

Steve Sax said...

2-0 Dodgers, b6

karen said...

Fair!!! Agone hits a 2 run homer...4-0 Blue

Dusty Baker said...

Hit THIS pole!

karen said...

Sponge Worthy getting run support for 2nd game in a row

Steve Sax said...

What?! Fucking SEND him, Bundy!!!

Steve Sax said...

Cannot believe Bundy didn't send him. Totally pissed off

Steve Sax said...

Yippee Ki yay, Orel is here

Steve Sax said...

Bundy, you are an idiot

Greg said...

Either injured?

Greg said...

Sliding or HBP?

Steve Sax said...

Did ethier get injured pouting?

karen said...

Any opinions out there on whether we see Zack in Dodger Blue in 2016?

Greg said...

I think it will depend a little bit on how the team ends up at the end of the season. Playoffs or beyond, he might want to stay.

karen said...

Greg...I hope you're right. I would hate to lose him

Cliff Beefpile said...

Holy shit! I just realized Greinke's at just 88 pitches through 7-2/3. That's pretty efficient for him.

Greg said...

The picture of Brown they use at the stadium makes him look like the Devil.

Greg said...

When do pitchers begin to be considered for the CYA?

karen said...

YASIELLLLL!!!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

PWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEG! That HR was a long time coming!

karen said...

I miss HanRam but I sure do fret a whole lot less with JRoll at short

karen said...

WIN!!!

QuadSevens said...

Puig had a great night! Zack had a great one too! Nice job bringing the good juju Sons!

Cliff Beefpile said...

The Sons clearly helped with the pace of the game, too. No four hour saga tonight.

Steve Sax said...

The Sons are heading to El Compadre if anyone wants to drink

spank said...

noice

Orel said...

Hi everybody! What'd I miss?

Dusty Baker said...

Dad just tucked us in and said good night.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn a Son is feeling those late-night nachos.

Dusty Baker said...

We came, we saw, we MPQ'd.

Dusty Baker said...

45

Hideo Nomo said...

Yeah, those nachos definitely want to go steady.

spank said...

looks like the L.A. Times are on a campaign to rid Puig of the Dodgers. Molly Knight must be feeling really good.

Dusty Baker said...

I can help her feel good.

Orel said...

By buying ten copies of her book.
