Game 134 Thread: Sept. 4 @ Padres, 7p

STILL WEIRD.

Mike Bolsinger (5-3, 2.83) vs. James Shields (10-6, 3.78).

Despite last night's dispiriting lose-from-ahead loss, the Dodgers have won eight of their last ten. More importantly, SoSG and our awesome readership are on a five-GT streak of 100+ comments. We've made 978 comments over five games. Let the streaks continue!

Corey's movin' on up

karen said...

Schebler?

Orel said...

I hardly know her!

Alex Tarkian said...

This lineup proves that Donnie must go.

Orel said...

He'll be gone if the Dodgers don't make the World Series.

Orel said...

if/when

karen said...

with the Curse of Roenicke waiting in the 3rd base box...

karen said...

Rox up 2-nada

karen said...

Crawdaddy goes yard 1-0 Good

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Great picture. I miss The Bison, but he's alive and well in all my passwords.

QuadSevens said...

Just as they were saying Bolsinger found his curve ball, Kemp takes one deep.

karen said...

Is Matty getting fat or is it just that I'm mad at him?

spank said...

belated noice for Keebler homerun

Jason said...

Um... 15?

Cliff Beefpile said...

This is bullshit. Who can we call to complain? All these hamstrings should still be under warranty!

karen said...

callaspo is gone? how did i miss that?

spank said...

holy hell that was painful....the Padres announcers carrying on that is.

spank said...

fucking Gyrkoff

karen said...

How many more ways can we get fucked on review?

QuadSevens said...

Judging by last night's "not-neighborhood" play and they way we got screwed by the neighborhood play in Chicago, I'd say we will have a HR overturned by replay soon.

Orel said...

Marine layer took the night off. Home runs for all!

Cliff Beefpile said...

gnats lose.

Cliff Beefpile said...

And the Cubbies win. SF's playoff chances are on the ropes.

Cliff Beefpile said...

J-Roll with the double to start things off in the 5th.

karen said...

WE'LL TAKE IT!! 3-3...

Cliff Beefpile said...

Tie game, 3-3. Let's get one more run out of this, Blue, before I have to leave!

karen said...

Utley was all up in that neighborhood...

spank said...

i have no idea what's going on. it looks like i picked the right time to start huffing aerosols.

Orel said...

Utley making a point with that slide, methinks

karen said...

Kersh with the hat 'askew'...

spank said...

1980 olympic hockey just killed that ball

karen said...

5-3 Good Guys!!!! Rugianno with the 2 run bomb at Dogshit Park...

Cliff Beefpile said...

RUGGIANO!

karen said...

Bolsinger goes out winning after homer.

Orel said...

Parm!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Rollins is in minor beast mode.

Orel said...

Kershaw with crooked hat

QuadSevens said...

Wonder how Dre feels about being the decoy for Ruggiano.

karen said...

AGONE!!!!! 7-3 BLUE

spank said...

holy fuck shit...homerun derby action

Cliff Beefpile said...

A-GONE! There's your fuckin' neighborhood, madres!

spank said...

holy toledo!! a fucking geyser of homers

karen said...

Chutley leaves the building...8-3...

Cliff Beefpile said...

ALL the homeruns!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Seager with only a double. Come on, rookie!

Orel said...

Two-out madness!

Steve Sax said...

Can the bullpen hold a lead tonight???

Orel said...

WHAT COULD GO WRONG

Jason said...

s/petco/coors/gi


That is, by far, the most geeky thing I've ever posted. And I stand by it.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Dear Union-Tribune,

We still like the guy, but no, we do not need Matt Kemp. We're good, thanks.

p.s. We're probably taking your football team, too. Eat mah shit!

Steve Sax said...

Sorry I'm late guys...

Orel said...

Someone talking about trading Kemp back already, Cliffy?

Orel said...

(stares at Jason's geeky comment)

Orel said...

(still staring)

Orel said...

Who is this Schebler guy?

spank said...

Guerrero is still on the team? i thought he got traded or sumtin

Orel said...

EARTHQUAKE

karen said...

Whatever Jason's geeky comment is it keeps telling me the page is unavailable :(

karen said...

really? earthquake???

karen said...

JRoll is a runnin' fool tonight...

Orel said...

Quick one, apparently

Orel said...

Dodgers are SB-crazy all of a sudden

karen said...

2.9 in Venice...how did you even feel that, Orel?? We're Californians!!! That's barley worth mentioning!

Steve Sax said...

i didn't feel it.

Steve Sax said...

Howell just about falls over off the mound, and still gets Myers to fan

Steve Sax said...

Boston is 14 games out and in the cellar of the AL East

karen said...

Was it Mitch Webster that Vin used to say pitched like he was falling out of a tree with his hair on fire? That's what JP reminds me of.

Steve Sax said...

whoops, had the SD feed going there for a while.

Steve Sax said...

Does Petco really get the 2016 All-Star Game? That's surprising.

Orel said...

I'm on the Westside, Karen. That was like an earthquake love tap

Steve Sax said...

called strike 3 on Upton! Howell strikes out the side in the seventh!

8-3 good guys

karen said...

Sax...Really? Petco is getting 2016 All Star Game? Who makes these decisions? It is way past our turn.

Steve Sax said...

Orel: so what you're saying is, the earth moved for you too.

Steve Sax said...

New Padres pitcher: Frank Garces.

Steve Sax said...

First pitch ground-out for A-Gon

karen said...

This Seager kid is a hitting machine

Steve Sax said...

seager with a two-out single!

Steve Sax said...

Grandal is just not the same anymore. 0-for-4 with 3 Ks tonight.

Orel said...

Grandal ain't right

Steve Sax said...

@karen 10:11p: I'm just looking at the advert on the border of the fence behind home plate.

karen said...

Sax...oh yeah, I see it now. duh!!!

Hatcher gives up the solo, 8-4 Good Guys

Orel said...

Here we go again

Steve Sax said...

Yep, Petco Park has the 2016 All-Star Game. That logo doesn't look all that bad, either; just a little dated.

Steve Sax said...

No lead is safe with this pen

One out

Steve Sax said...

whoops, make that two outs.

So now, if we can just get four outs before SD scores four runs, we can WIN!

spank said...

stop fucking around Muttingly. put Janley in. fuck this bullpen.

Steve Sax said...

If Utley and Rollins get any close on this infield shift, they will be able to hug each other

Steve Sax said...

Kemp with a feeble K.

I remember those.

Steve Sax said...

8-4 Dodgers, through eight

Steve Sax said...

who is this schebler guy again?

karen said...

I think they said earlier that he only had one ML at bat before today.

karen said...

Chutley...the love child of Ted Dansen and Jim Tracy...

karen said...

Janley coming in...we just might win this one.

Orel said...

And we might just top 100 comments again

Steve Sax said...

Bottom of the ninth

Orel said...

One more out...

karen said...

WIN!

Orel said...

WIN

Orel said...

DAMMIT

and 100

Steve Sax said...

WE WIN!

Dodgers up 7.5 games!

karen said...

Bolsinger gets the win.

spank said...

noice

Steve Sax said...

Okay gotta run, can't PGT just yet. Good night pals!

karen said...

Night kids!!

spank said...

ciao.y'all

Jason said...

Night all (I'll explain my earlier geeky comment some day. Or Google regex or sed inline expressions, actually no, don't do that). Still, night yinz guys!

Orel said...

(still staring)

Steve Sax said...

(Still standing)

Dusty Baker said...

(still drunk)

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen re ASG

Teams put in requests to host. Dodgers have not put in a request in some time but are likely to soon now with new management, spruced up Yard, etc. They have tried to highlight new Yards but are mostly through those now. We are long past due, you're right.
