Tweet of the Day: Dodgers and Padres are just getting started

Apr 12, 2013, 9:22 AM EDT

This from the official Dodgers Twitter account last night:

 

The Dodgers and Padres meet again, starting Monday. You have to figure that some guys are going to get hit.

    Oh this will be interesting to say the least

    • kopy - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:30 AM

      I don’t suppose MLB.TV could make this game the free game of the day/week…

      • Shafer's Dealer - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:56 AM

        Its a free game on various sites. Surely they got written consent from MLB to rebroadcast.

    Wait’ll the West Coast rubs the sleep outta their eyes, this is gonna be fun to watch. Hey, Craig, what’s with not trolling Nats fans in your video? C’mon! (P.S., wrote up my assessment of how the Barves are handling the injuries–so far so good, and a lot better than the Fillies last year.)

      What do the Nationals, Braves or Phillies have to do with this story?

      • natslady - Apr 12, 2013 at 12:44 PM

        Nothing really. I had it set up for the previous post, got in a hurry and put it here. And, y;know, no edit/delete function, so y’all got stuck with it. Give it a down-thumb maybe I’ll learn my lesson…

      • Chip Caray's Eyebrows - Apr 12, 2013 at 3:17 PM

        If getting thumbs-downed for crowbarring Nats talk into every page of this site was going to teach you a lesson, it seems like it would’ve happened by now.

    • manchestermiracle - Apr 12, 2013 at 6:18 PM

      Right, because there’s no reason to watch for the baseball since the Padres suck. But go ahead and tune in to see if someone gets killed. Nice.

  3. vallewho - Apr 12, 2013 at 9:31 AM

    I will tune-in…

  4. historiophiliac - Apr 12, 2013 at 9:31 AM

    Dammit, I have class that night. What do you want to bet that’s the highest rated Padres game in years?

    • indaburg - Apr 12, 2013 at 9:56 AM

      Ditch the class! Priorities! :-)

    • unclemosesgreen - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:21 AM

      If it’s a class you’re taking, that’s a problem. If it’s a class you’re teaching, ipad + streaming video + stand on desk … I don’t see the problem.

      • historiophiliac - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:25 AM

        I’m teaching. I run into this problem during the WS every year. My solution is: I get a volunteer from the class to sit at the computer watching the gametrax and give me the high sign on scores & highlights. I watch video clips during the break. In return for their effort, said student gets a copy of my lecture notes. Immediately after class, I walk across the street to the bar where they know to have the game up for me.

    • fearlessleader - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:04 AM

      Historiophiliac, I feel your pain! I had to conduct an orchestra dress rehearsal during game 5 of the 2011 NLDS between the Cardinals and the Phillies (you know, the 1-0 Carpenter/Halladay game, back when they were both ace pitchers *cries*). My girlfriend sat in the auditorium with an iPad and shouted out updates during the rests, and we wrapped up and dashed back to my office in time to watch the final out. Fortunately, the concertmaster was a huge basketball fan who didn’t find any of this weird at all.

      • historiophiliac - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:16 AM

        That is the opposite of weird.

  5. darthicarus - Apr 12, 2013 at 9:34 AM

    Unless Kemp & Quentin both appeal their upcoming suspensions two of the bigger names involved won’t be playing in the series. I have a hunch the umpires will have a pre-warning in place for both sides, could be interesting to which team tests the waters first. I will put my money on nothing happening if Kemp & Quentin are out of action.

    • jeffbbf - Apr 12, 2013 at 9:43 AM

      When was the last time a suspension *wasn’t* appealed? I’d count on both of them being there.

    • ch0psuey - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:10 AM

      If somebody sneezes wrong they’re gonna get rung

  6. icanspeel - Apr 12, 2013 at 9:34 AM

    It’s unfortunate circumstances, but the Padres finally have some hype around them.

    • manchestermiracle - Apr 12, 2013 at 6:07 PM

      It’s too bad they can’t generate any with their play.

  7. mybrunoblog - Apr 12, 2013 at 9:36 AM

    I can see it now. Uncle Bud at the head of a large table with Don Mattingly and Bud Black. Selig is talking
    about “conflict resolution” and how we can all get along. All the while Mattingly is kicking black underneath the table and Black is throwing spitballs at Mattingly.

    • chill1184 - Apr 12, 2013 at 9:53 AM

      Will Joe Torre tell Mattingly and Black to embrace the human element?

    • ch0psuey - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:08 AM

      See Kemp jawing at Buddy Black last night, I mean seriously who gets upset with Bud Black…. Well maybe Milton Bradley but thats beside the point.

    • historiophiliac - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:19 AM

      Somewhere, Joe West is crying at the missed TV opportunity.

    • jerze2387 - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:22 AM

      First thing i thought when i saw the tweet

  9. themuddychicken - Apr 12, 2013 at 9:48 AM

    They chose an excellent pic for their tweet, if nothing else.

  10. Kevin S. - Apr 12, 2013 at 9:50 AM

    What the Dodgers were actually saying: “Go fuck yourself, San Diego.”

    • rollinghighwayblues - Apr 12, 2013 at 9:55 AM

      You have a dirty whorish mouth.

      • Kevin S. - Apr 12, 2013 at 9:56 AM

        I’m going to punch you in the ovaries. Straight shot to the babymaker.

  11. calicokiller49 - Apr 12, 2013 at 9:51 AM

    hopefully dodger fans don’t kick anybodys head in….

    • antlerclaws - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:12 AM

      Really, not sure I’d show up wearing a Padres jersey.

  12. sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:51 AM

    That’s weird, why is Kenley Janssen (of the 100mph fastball) now scheduled to start this game? I suppose Billingsley could be available in long relief in the highly unlikely event Janssen does something to get himself tossed.

    • kingscourt25 - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:15 AM

      1. Kenley Jansen isn’t starting
      2. It’s Kenley “Jansen”
      3. Kenley doesn’t throw 100mph

      • icanspeel - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:41 AM

        I think you missed some of the sarcasm from his post

      • sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:59 AM

        srsly?

      • sabathiawouldbegoodattheeighthtoo - Apr 12, 2013 at 12:09 PM

        srsly? Are you a cop? If you are, you have to tell me you’re a cop when I ask you. Its like, a law, or something.

  13. DelawarePhilliesFan - Apr 12, 2013 at 11:53 AM

    Okay, I laughed, and I laughed hard.

    But serious question – if Mike Rizzo was fined for saying of Cole Hamles “He doesn’t know who he is dealing with”, (at least that was Craig’s take http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/05/08/mike-rizzo-fined-for-his-cole-hamels-tirade/) how do the Dodgers get away with this tweet?

    • manchestermiracle - Apr 12, 2013 at 6:16 PM

      Are the Padres not visiting L.A. on Monday? I suppose if you are the type to over-react to getting HPB by breaking the pitcher’s collarbone, then perhaps you’d also think this tweet was some sort of threat. My hope is that Quentin is just that way and is distracted wondering where the retaliation is going to come from.

      • DelawarePhilliesFan - Apr 12, 2013 at 10:56 PM

        To be clear – I have no problem with the tweet. I guess I am saying MLB is being inconsistant. How can saying” He doesn’t know who he is dealing with” get you a fine, but saying “See you in L.A.” with a clear (albeit humorous) comment that the Padres exhibited no class, is not a threat?

        Again, I am not crticizing the Dodgers, I am fine with the tweet. I am criticizing MLB for having moving standards

      • manchestermiracle - Apr 13, 2013 at 9:09 AM

        Oh, sorry, I thought that was an obvious given.
