Game 1 Thread: Apr 2 vs Padres, 1p

Clayton Kershaw (0-0, -.--) vs Jhoulys Chacin (0-0, -.--).

Whaaaaaat, did you think we forgot about you? Fear not, the Sons are out of rehab and down for another season of high hopes followed by the inevitable weight of soul-crushing disappointment grinding our love for game into the dirt—

Ah shit, sorry about that — didn't mean to get all doom and gloom on you. Yes, I know that many media outlets and finer sports-betting establishments are picking the Dodgers to win it all this year. And our GM is a nice guy. And our clubhouse has *gasp* chemistry.

But we've been here before, what with the astronomical payroll and lofty expectations. Who isn't glad that Kenley and Turn Down for What are back? And even Old Man Utley? But let's see some results on the field. Then we'll know what this year's team is made of.

P.S: Best of luck to Joe Davis, making his home-game debut today!

UPDATE: Can confirm that SoSG Stubbs is actually not out of rehab yet.

Just...no.

QuadSevens said...

The Dodgers Facebook account was streaming the opening ceremonies. Got to watch that which was nice.

QuadSevens said...

At work here. Couldn't play hooky today.

Hideo Nomo said...

Corey was kind of a mess out there.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Epale, y'all!

I'm apparently out of hibernation, but why am I still so fat, then?

spank said...

Neeebs said...

We got this. Afterall, it's not hockey.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Howdy, peeps! I tuned in just in time to hear Corey's slam.

Neeebs said...

Stubbs got a day pass.

Neeebs said...

@Cliffy::::: Joc you mean.

Orel said...

What'd I miss? CoreySlam™?

Cliff Beefpile said...

@Neeebs, and I haven't even been drinking! I blame the Kings.

Franklin Stubbs said...

@Neeeeeeeeeebsy

I called an audible for an emergency opening day teleconference. Priorities.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I keep dreading that JT will revert to NYM form at some point. I have Dodgers trust issues.

Orel said...

Can't imagine why, Stubbsy

Orel said...

Hey we're winning!

Franklin Stubbs said...

This just in, the pods will still be terrible.

Franklin Stubbs said...

@Orel Because weonce traded for Jeromy Burnitz?

Orel said...

Jeromy spoke in...class...today

Orel said...

Are we winning? (checks score) PLAYOFFS BABY

Franklin Stubbs said...

71 pitches through 6? Jaysus.

Orel said...

Kershaw gave up a solo dong? WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE

QuadSevens said...

Can we play the Padres 162 times this season?

Hideo Nomo said...

Yeah, I'm assuming the Dodgers ARE good, but we're going to have to wait a few days to see how they are without the "But the Padres" qualifier.

Franklin Stubbs said...

That said, starting out with a win is pretty nice

Cliff Beefpile said...

Commence party-making!

Orel said...

WOO HOO
