Game 1 Thread: April 4 @ Padres, 4p

Clayton Kershaw (0-0, -.--) vs. Tyson Ross (0-0, -.--).

It's time for Dodger baseball! FINALLY!!!

With Dave Roberts at the helm in his managerial debut, the Dodgers go absolutely crazy and start Clayton Kershaw, who has started the last five opening days (hilariously, Kershaw took over for Vicente Padilla after the Battletoad started in 2010, and lost to Pittsburgh 11-5). The Dodgers have won all five of Kershaw's Opening Day starts, dating back to 2011.

I figure Roberts will probably have some nostalgia returning to Petco Park, where he was bench coach for the last two seasons. However, there's no time like the present for us to defend our third-straight NL West title. Let's get to it.

(Original) Orel saying that after Kid K the 2-5 pitchers may need to be platooned.

Dusty Baker said...

In my office, Vinny!!!

spank said...

spank said...

Fuck you Dick Enberg!

Hideo Nomo said...

Here! Not a robot!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Happy Opening Day, mofos! Let's do this shit!

spank said...

Chase Utley leads off. this is going to be a fucked up year

Hideo Nomo said...

Utley's a noted speedster, dontcha know.

Jason said...

Could have done without Chutley being the first Dodger to appear this season.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Hurr durr beat el lay!

I gotta say, I don't hate these new madres uniforms.

Utley gets on with a leadoff double!

spank said...

doble for Mutley!

Jason said...

I'll still take it, though

Alex Cora said...

On the recliner listening to Vin! Thanks unlocator and mlb.tv. Screw you TWC!

Cliff Beefpile said...

ROY drives in the first run! Eat mah shit, San Diego!

karen said...

Boys open with back to back doubles!! 1-0 Blue...

Dusty Baker said...

Glad to "see" all you guys here! Happy Opening Day, SoSGes!

Dusty Baker said...

The butter and egg man up to try to get something done early.

karen said...

Dusty with this seasons first Vinnyism.

Hideo Nomo said...

This is fun!

Cliff Beefpile said...

2-0 Blue!

QuadSevens said...

A lead for Kid K! I love it!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Man, do I want to see Puig step up this season. Not a great first at-bat though. Oh well, Kid K time.

Alex Cora said...

I want some butter and eggs now

karen said...

Kid starts with a K!!

Alex Cora said...

Shadows!!!

spank said...

my Apple II needs to step up its game. fucking lame shit this is

karen said...

Everybody sit down and be quiet...Mattys up!!!!


*whimpers*

spank said...

well that half inning was uneventful. the way i likes it.

spank said...

Fuck Matt Kemp!!

*runs for cover*

Delino DeShields said...

HAVE NO FEAR - DELINO IS HERE!
Peace, love and blue!

How was everyone's winter vacas?

I had this strange dream that the Mets made it to the series then gave every game away.

karen said...

Spanky...I just threw a rock at you...let me know when it gets there.

spank said...

love Kruk in the studio. now i don't have to hear his bullshit during games.

spank said...

still waiting Karen.

spank said...

booze flowing nicely. wish y'all were here with me because i may need someone to get me more later.

spank said...

Kershaw on his game

Steve Sax said...

Hello to the GT and glad to see all of you back in action. Makes me think about a post I need to make...

Hey it sounds like there are more Dodger fans than Padre fans at Petco Park. I've got the game live on the ESPN feed...

spank said...

but the shadows? Seager can give less fucks.

Steve Sax said...

UTLEY IS SO FUCKING SLOW

Cliff Beefpile said...

Look at old-ass Buttley getting on base like an actual lead-off man. Aaaaaand right as I typed that he gets gunned down at the plate.

Steve Sax said...

If Utley had done a slide outside the baseline, he probably would have scored

Steve Sax said...

Turner is shaking his head, knowing he was robbed of an RBI.

At least A-Gon gets Turner for a RBI.

Steve Sax said...

If Woody had gone to the police, this would never have happened

Cliff Beefpile said...

AGon says, "No matter!" 3-0 Dodgers.

spank said...

noice

spank said...

Enberg and Co. crying foul over Mutley's slide. whatevs

spank said...

come on Puig you little bitch. do something

Alex Cora said...

Yeah woody reference!

Steve Sax said...

Puig with a walk. Two on, two out.

Steve Sax said...

Crawford up there, hacking like a fucking idiot

Steve Sax said...

...just like last year

Steve Sax said...

Crawford grounds to short. Thanks, Carl!

3-0 LA

Alex Cora said...

Who is third base coach

Dusty Baker said...

Tyson Ross is in mid 50s on pitches after 3 innings. We need to pounce the next inning.

spank said...

still waiting,Karen.

Big Daddy Delino said...

NOIOOOOOoOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

karen said...

Still waiting Spank? See, I knew I was ready for the number 5 spot!

Paul said...

This is a good start. Happy Kershaw day!

spank said...

Ajellis needs to retire.

spank said...

i think you can be a number 3 karen. maybe even 2.

spank said...

sit the fuck down Matty!

Paul said...

Cant have Kemp without the K.

spank said...

goddamn that was a nasty curve. pinchi Kershaw.

spank said...

i'm hard for Kershaw right now

QuadSevens said...

KKKKKKKershaw!

karen said...

Don't rub Yasiel...

spank said...

Puig takes a Tyler Ross fastball off the elbow and runs to first. Ethier foul tips a ball off his shin and well...you know the rest. Culero.

karen said...

YungJoc brings in number 4!!!

spank said...

holy shit! Pederson with the rbi double. who knew he'd hit the ball this season.

karen said...

6-0 Blue!!!

spank said...

holy shit! Ajellis with a 2rbi single. who knew he'd hit the ball this season.

spank said...

KERSHAW! 7-nil

karen said...

Nothing like hearing the madre faithful boo their team on Opening Day!!

Orel said...

PLAYOFFS

spank said...

my addition is wrong

spank said...

now i'm right. 7-0

spank said...

i heart Matt Kemp

karen said...

Bad call ump!!!

Steve Sax said...

8-0!!! Came back to a great result

karen said...

My dad told me a story once about an Opening Day at Wrigley. There was an older Cubby fan sitting in the bleachers with a sign that said 'Wait til next Year'!

Big Daddy Delino said...

Think Kershaw can start throwing underhand...

Big Daddy Delino said...

Karen - LOL!

QuadSevens said...

Rancho for Kershaw!

Big Daddy Delino said...

I expect nothing less than a slammy here. Or else I'm over Kershaw forever!

Big Daddy Delino said...

F--K a D--K

QuadSevens said...

After fouling off about 5, he strikes out.

QuadSevens said...

But Utley doesn't! 2 more in on his single.

Big Daddy Delino said...

Still think Utley's a punk. Surprised he didn't take out the pitcher on a slide.

Big Daddy Delino said...

Naming my next kid Perdomo

Cliff Beefpile said...

I like this strategy of scoring a bunch of runs and only allowing one hit by the other team. We should do this all season, Dodgers.

QuadSevens said...

Every Dodger who's come to the plate has scored. Great start to the season boys.

QuadSevens said...

100!

spank said...

LOL

Cliff Beefpile said...

PWEEEEEEEEEG!

karen said...

madres get Puigged

spank said...

Dodgers still batting?

Franklin Stubbs said...

I am pleased with this turn of events.

spank said...

still no outs? dayum

spank said...

until now. thanks Ajellis.

Big Daddy Delino said...

Hope I don't jinx things but got to rolll....
Good night and good luck

QuadSevens said...

Shutout party!

Steve Sax said...

PGT up!
