Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

As long as it's not Orel.

Josh S. said...

EK's not paying attention.

Eric Karros said...

Who asked earlier why he pronounces it Die-az?

Eric Karros said...

Look closely, Josh S...

Dusty Baker said...

Joolander?

karina said...

Eric, you are getting excellent to nail hundreds. How you do it?

Eric Karros said...

MLASF, you will one day rue your underestimation of me.

Josh S. said...

Uh oh.

Eric Karros said...

Hi Karina, thanks. I think I am 5-1 in terms of hits/misses, but I can't stay up late enough to get the high-earning hits.

Josh S. said...

I see a 2, EK, but no zeroes. But hey, it's your website.

Dusty Baker said...

Uh, oh...someone just blew up and released a GT beach ball.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey, Josh has a point. You need 200, not 2oo. There's a big difference.

Eric Karros said...

2OOlander looked awkward.

karina said...

@Eric Karros: so you rely on consistent performance.

Eric Karros said...

The precedent has already been set several times with 'B2oo-yah!' and '1ook who's talking'.

Eric Karros said...

Yes Karina...either that or luck.

karina said...

Bills is impersonating Derek Lowe

Eric Karros said...

I just looked through how the Dodgers scored their 4 runs. Nice!

Dusty Baker said...

Bills' hat looks Soaked Breezy.

Orel said...

That'll teach me to empty the dishwasher around a hundreds post.

Eric Karros said...

Karina, how come you don't play the 100's game?

karina said...

We gotta admit Eric not only nails hundreds, he puts an effort to be creative.

Josh S. said...

I know we want starters going deep, but I'd rather Chad rest his knee. Pinch hitter now?

Orel said...

Medlen? Doesn't he run a drug cartel?

Josh S. said...

Pinch Schmitter?

Dusty Baker said...

Totally agree Josh. But what the hell is Schmidt doing with a batting helmet??

karina said...

What's up with Torre? Wjy is Schimdt wearing a helmet and holding a bat?

Orel said...

No sixth for you, Chad!

karina said...

Bills looks very upset.

Orel said...

The curse of 13 pitchers.

Eric Karros said...

Nice!

fanerman said...

File under: Torre is a genius.

Dusty Baker said...

I don't know why you were all saying bad things about Schmidt batting.

Josh S. said...

Torre is a GENIUS!

(How many millions did that hit cost?)

Orel said...

Okay, Torre, you're a genius.

karina said...

@Josh: (How many millions did that hit cost?)

Enjoy the moment, Josh!

karina said...

Torre is a genius with (sometimes) questionable management of the bullpen.

Josh S. said...

I wonder if we were ever in on Victor Martinez. I only ask because he went 5 for 6 with 4 RBI today.

Josh S. said...

Sorry, Karina. My phrasing was poor. I'm happy he's earning his money, actually.

Josh S. said...

FJL!!!

Josh S. said...

OK, nevermind my V-Mart thinking.

karina said...

King James RBI double!

Orel said...

Was Manny's fly out deep?

karina said...

No Orel. His slump is getting scarier and scarier, because his contact is getting lousier.

Orel said...

Joe Morgan may have a point. His hand may still be hurt.

Orel said...

Hey, it's Scott Elbert!

karina said...

He cruised with 9 pitches.

karina said...

Bills is not injured, but i don't know how to say what he has.

karina said...

Calambres (due to humidity)? who traslates?

Dusty Baker said...

It appeared that he hyper-extended his left leg on follow through.

karina said...

That's different from what they said on ESPN deportes. Never mind.

Dusty Baker said...

ESPN Deportes may have been attributing it to cramping.

ESPN Gringo showed a slo-mo replay of his leg hyper-extending. Didn't look serious serious, but Torre was right to take him out for precaution.

Dusty Baker said...

"I want to see Flat Breezy come in to top off the weekend." -- Mrs. Dusty

Orel said...

"ESPN Gringo." Ha ha!

Steve Sax said...

Is Chad really hurt?

Steve Sax said...

256

Dusty Baker said...

4,375.67

Orel said...

Chad looks like he slightly hyperextended his left knee in a follow-through in the fifth inning.

Orel said...

Will we get to #300?

Dusty Baker said...

"Mannywood South"

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO!

Orel said...

Loney with an ouchie.

Dusty Baker said...

My sister-in-law just diagnosed Manny's problem. She said he usually does a tap-tap-swirl-swirl as his pre-pitch routine. She noted he's doing three swirls lately.

Clearly, she's onto something.

Eric Karros said...

run in

Eric Karros said...

That's how Manny sends morse code messages to his roids supplier.

Josh S. said...

Buffalo!

Dusty Baker said...

Hopefully, then, three swirls is "don't send any more."

fanerman said...

More Bison awesomeness.

karina said...

Thanks, Dusty Baker

"ESPN gringo" hahahaha

Orel said...

Bison RBIs! 8-0 Dodgers!

Dusty Baker said...

Cracking myself up with my new ESPN moniker. Got a bonk on the back of the head from my wife, but it was worth it.

5 RBI for Bison!

Eric Karros said...

Unfortunately, three swirls means "crap, turns out I can't hit without 'em. Re-start delivery, please!"

Josh S. said...

Weird how Manny's D improved while his bat his cold.

Dusty Baker said...

Manny gave it a few extra rolls, like an Argentinian futbol player.

Josh S. said...

"is" cold

Josh S. said...

Anyone else glad we didn't trade Elbert?

Dusty Baker said...

Put in F(l)at Breezy!!

Orel said...

I will be really impressed if he goes three. As it is, 2 1/3 scoreless is great.

fanerman said...

Is that it for Elbert?

Dusty Baker said...

O-

See Diaz stay on or near 2nd while the ball was in the air, or at least until he knew where the ball was going to go? Do that.

Orel said...

Very nice, Elbert.

Orel said...

Addicted to love!

Dusty Baker said...

Brave-ettes? What the hell?

Laaaaaame.

Orel said...

OMG YANKEES RED SOX NEXT WEEK

Orel said...

So long, shutout.

Orel said...

Flat Breezy time!

Dusty Baker said...

Orel, no, you're kidding?!?!?!?!?!?1?

How were we supposed to know that Yanks v Red Sox was going on this week? They have totally been keeping this on the down low.

Orel said...

I know. Stupid west-coast bias.

Eric Karros said...

Until Yankees vs Red Sox begins, these Dodger "games" are a nice distraction

Dusty Baker said...

Look at all those people leaving. Those must be the Dodgers fans. *eye roll*

Dusty Baker said...

We may not be the "Yankees." We may not "have 26 world championships." We may not "wear pinstripes."

Dusty Baker said...

They are STILL talking about the PEDs issue!

Josh S. said...

Pile it on! This will be good for the mental health of our struggling offense.

Dusty Baker said...

And for my mental health.

Eric Karros said...

Let's hit double digits

Dusty Baker said...

I've timed it. 5 minutes and not a mention of the game. Still talking about PEDs.

Orel said...

Well, it is a blowout.

Orel said...

Wouldn't Steve Phillips be part of the complicity he's assailing?

Erin #2 said...

300

Orel said...

300

Erin #2 said...

300

Dusty Baker said...

Then talk about why it's a blowout.

Orel said...

Erin #2 out of nowhere with the attempt!

Erin #2 said...

Drats..........I'm so suck at this game........

Erin #2 said...

I'm lurking tonight.

Orel said...

Rancho Ardiendo!

Orel said...

No granny for James.

Orel said...

Not anymore, Erin!

Eric Karros said...

Erin #2 is using the hide-and-ambush strategy.

Orel is uncatchable. My goal is second.

Dusty Baker said...

Are there any anti-lurking penalties?

Orel said...

Well, I'll be at Wednesday's game. But in the press box.

Erin #2 said...

Well, it worked for you Eric.......I guess that's cause you're the master! :)

Ok, I'm going back to lurking!!

Orel said...

@DB: If there were, a lot of people would be in minus points.

Orel said...

And we wouldn't know who they were.

Orel said...

Eight-run lead, Tron. Don't blow it.

Erin #2 said...

Oh Dusty, that is soooooo wrong! I'm just an innocent Dodger Fan!! I met Steve Garvey when I was 6 years old and I've been hooked ever since......

Dusty Baker said...

I wasn't directing that at anyone, just wondering if that game had a twist where you couldn't not have commented for x amount of comments and then try the 100 or something.

Erin #2 said...

So you mean we could take away some of Eric's points??? Hmmmm....

Fred's Brim said...

christ - 19 hits, and still with out much from Manny. i can't wait until he gets hot again!

Eric Karros said...

Is an anti-lurking penalty a penalty levied against those who oppose lurking? Sounds like an idea worth considering.

Dusty Baker said...

@ Erin #2

You mean hooked on S Garvey or on Dodgers? ;-)

Orel said...

And Chad gets his 11th!

Orel said...

Anyone going to try to run it up to #400?

Eric Karros said...

Lurkers are just efficient with their keystrokes. I think they should get a bonus.

Erin #2 said...

Both... :) Steve was a great roll model when I was growing up. I have three brothers who all think the world of him.

Dusty Baker said...

That would be 76 more inane comments, mostly from me.

Fred's Brim said...

great way to finish the trip. It could easily have been a 5-2 trip too. It seems that our mistakes always seem to hurt us, that we can't seem to work around them or we dont get lucky and get out of the trouble we cause for ourselves. Maybe it is balancing out from the beginning of the season when everything seemed to go right.

Dusty Baker said...

RIght, Fred's Brim. Several of these could have easily gone the other way.

Hopefully we got those out of our system.

Welcome home, boys! I'll be in the Yard tomorrow night.

Orel said...

If the Dodgers are indeed back on track, then was it a hiccup or should we be really afraid of the Cardinals?

Orel said...

If there aren't any new comments in the next five minutes, the PGT is going up.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm still pretty afraid of the Cards, at least in their Yard.

Dusty Baker said...

Jhe Jend.

Orel said...

Best record in the NL ensures home-field advantage through the playoffs, right?

Dusty Baker said...

As long as Heath Bell doesn't have any say in the matter.

Orel said...

That fat bastard.

Orel said...

Unlike Broxton, who's our fat bastard.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hooray for victories!

Orel said...

Off the schneid! I never understood that expression.

Dusty Baker said...

Heath "Taco" Bell:

Who ate all the tacos?
Who ate all the tacos?
You fat bastard!
You fat bastard!
You ate all the tacos!

Dusty Baker said...

I tried to type schneid earlier but couldn't recall the proper spelling. It was when Manny finally got a hit.

It's Yiddish, no?

Orel said...

Oy, how should I know?

Dusty Baker said...

"To break a scoreless, hitless, or winless streak (i.e., a schneid). According to the Dickson Baseball Dictionary, the term "schneid" comes to baseball via gin rummy, and in turn comes from German / Yiddish "schneider," one who cuts cloth, i.e., a tailor."

Steve Sax said...

Big win on national tv!

Dusty Baker said...

Maybe they need an ESPN Tribe to bring this all to light.

Orel said...

Another in the long line of gin rummy-baseball connections.

Orel said...

No announcement has been made....
