Spring Training Game 1 Thread: Mar. 3 vs. White Sox, 12p


This is a photo of Elian Herrera as a Dodger. It was taken yesterday. I'm as surprised as you are.

Clayton Kershaw (for an inning or two, anyway) vs. John Danks

(shakes off rust)

A baseball game? Featuring real Dodgers? Like, I've even heard of this Clayton Kershaw guy. He was on last year's team, I think.

Another guy from last year's team who won't be making an appearance anytime soon is Brett Anderson. The real Bringer of Rain (Sorry, Josh Donaldson!) will miss 3-5 months due to back surgery. Some people have thrown in towel on the entire season because of this news. Yes, seriously. I mean, we're not exactly the positive bunch over here (Hi, Karina!), but I think we'll muddle through this somehow.

If you have SportsNet LA (I do now, but I'm at work and forgot to DVR the game!), I think this game is not one of the ones that were slashed from the schedule. So, enjoy!

If you have no other access to the game, there's a White Sox webcast here.

Hiya, Karen!

I like the new slimmer, trimmer Puig. And good to see Grandal with a healthy swing.

karen said...

2 run knock for AG2. 2-0 Blue!!!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Guerrero drives one out! 3-0 Blue.

karen said...

I must've missed something. 3-0 Blue.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Enter Joe Bla(h)nton

Hideo Nomo said...

Alex Guerrero home run is what you missed.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I think both Puig and Grandal had RBI singles in the first inning, and Guerrero's HR was a solo blast.

karen said...

It's a good thing I showed up for Spring Training early. I thought Alex hit a TWO run blast!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Karen makes a box score error. I just burnt the shit outta my tongue on my microwave burrito. We're all shaking off the winter rust!

Hideo Nomo said...

Damn you Vons and your sale prices!

I recognize exactly one Dodger on the field, and that's Kike. Whereas the Gnats have their projected WS 2016 line up in.

Dodgers up 3-2 as we head to the bottom of the 6th. Back to you, Uncle Charlie. . .

rbnlaw said...

Nigel De Jong now in for the Dodgers.


Also, Trayce Thompson is Klay's brother and son of Mychael.


Did not know.
