SoSGlee!

Dusty Baker said...

Hope these guys pitch fast - let's get the game in!

*settles into sofa*

Dusty Baker said...

Wow! A ball didn't carry out of the RF at Yankee stadium - for once.

PenosCabell said...

Can't stand Burnett, I hope he gets shelled.

rbnlaw said...

I'll be damned, but that is a catchy version of that catchy song that I positively can't stand.

I think it has something to do with that douche Steve Perry. Hey Steveo, still believing in them Gnats?

Yeah, wait till next year.

Orel said...

Jeets bomb makes it 2-0 Yankees. A lot of ghost-vanquishing going on this postseason.

Mr. Customer said...

I can't stand that guy.

Dusty Baker said...

Lost Angels just can't get anything going. They better, and soon, or this one is in the bank for Yank-mes. Can't go 2-0 to these fellas.

rbnlaw said...

1. The Lost Angels look, well, lost. No spunk; no fire; nothing against Burnett.

2. The Buffalo Wild Wings in Buena Park is marginal at best. Spotty service; took forever to get my beer. I asked the waitress if the bartenders needed to look up the recipe for a Bud draft.

She laughed. Her tip reflected my feelings.

Mr. Customer said...

@rbn

You were saying?

rbnlaw said...

@Mr. C.
See, I was trying to light a fire under these guys. Burnett is not THAT good. Now they're showing it.

rbnlaw said...

The Angels really need to plate another here or it's trouble from here on out.

rbnlaw said...

V. Guerrero: Rally Killer.

rbnlaw said...

Angel fans holding their monkeys at Yankee Stadium look. . .out of place.

Wild pitch; Aybar scores; tied up.

Lucky Vlad had not already struck out.

Mr. Customer said...

Tie game! Now lets let this stand for another 15 innings or so.

rbnlaw said...

Guerrero will be lucky to sign with the Cape Cod League after this season. He's pushing harder than post-suspension Manny.

rbnlaw said...

@Mr. C.
i second that emotion.

Dusty Baker said...

RBN:

Did that Don Jose restaurant in Buena Park finally go under? Mrs. Dusty wanted to know.

rbnlaw said...

DB,
Where is it? I only know the one in Fullerton.

rbnlaw said...

Losing power. Must sign of. . .

Orel said...

Vlad Ks swinging (of course) with the bases loaded. Still a tie game.

Orel said...

E-Jeter! After his home run earlier, McCarver lectured everyone who thought he was losing his range. Like that has to do with his fielding.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to pound dirty sand in McCarver's ass.

Orel said...

All-righty then.

Mr. Customer said...

McCarver seemingly oblivious that it's a tie game.

PenosCabell said...

I hate the Yanks, but I love watching Rivera pitch. That was awsome.

Dusty Baker said...

Thx for indulging me, Orel.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to slap that fucking smirk off 911Guiliani911's face, too. Sacrosanct turdbag.

Orel said...

Yanks have the winning run at third, two out....

Dusty Baker said...

Walk the bases loaded? Or pitch to Robinson Carusoe?

Orel said...

Very nice by Jepsen.

Dusty Baker said...

A game of inches and/or seconds! Wow. Hope this one doesn't get rain delayed.

PenosCabell said...

That Jepsen kid is a stud.

Dusty Baker said...

Reading an article on MSNBC.com about True Blue Tattoo in Los Feliz. Says that the most popular tattoo is not the LA symbol, not the stadium, etc. It's VINNY. That just cracks me up.

Dusty Baker said...

"Fisted" needs to be removed from the lexicon of all baseball commentators.

Orel said...

That can't be an easy tattoo. Wonder if they have a template.

Orel said...

"That ball is fisted into the three-hole!"

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm ready for tomorrow. Let's hope the Stankees and the Angels are too.

PenosCabell said...

You guys talk about Kim Ng interviewing for Padres job today?

http://twitter.com/SI_JonHeyman/statuses/4956479805

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@PC - I heard, but according to Heyman, it's unlikely.

Dusty Baker said...

Saw that,PC. Hate to see her leave but understand that she wants to move up.

That said, other word I heard was that she was a longshot at Padres.

PenosCabell said...

MLASF - I hope she stays in LA. Someone's gonna eventually give her a shot.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

She's a beast in arbitration, and if the McCourt McVorce costs Colletti his job, I'd like her to get it.

PenosCabell said...

MLASF- Yup. That would be nice.

Dusty Baker said...

I've seen someone with a Vinny tat before. It was a giant, bulbous Vinhead. I mean, it was done well, but it was just...a whole lotta Vin upside yo face. I love how these 385 lb thugstas get Vin tats.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I've never seen Scioscia run that fast in my life.

Orel said...

What do you think? Bullshit call?

PenosCabell said...

The umps always call that out. They must really want to get out of the cold.

Steve Sax said...

That no-call at second was BULLSHIT. The Angels are getting punked by the umps and MLB here.

Dusty Baker said...

Aybar wasn't remotely near the base at any point where he had possession of the ball. Ump was right on it. There was daylight between the foot and the bag.

But it's NEVER called. All saying that are right. But the call was technically correct. It's like someone calling walking on Kobe in the game - he walks a lot, but it's never called.

Orel said...

And A.J. Pierzynski was nowhere in sight!

Mr. Customer said...

Yeah, they got jobbed there.

Steve Sax said...

Orel, I'm sitting right next to you on the couch, and from my angle, he was out.

Orel said...

Sax, go make some popcorn.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Aybar should know to at least touch the bag with his toe. That way, nothing can screw it up, like some putz umpire.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There's no way they can keep playing in the rain. This thing is getting postponed.

Dusty Baker said...

Exactly, MLASF. Aybar has to at least acknowledge that 2nd base exists in some relevant sense, nothing more.

Dusty Baker said...

Robothal with a non-update.

Mr. Customer said...

This is exactly the game I wanted. It only gets better if it gets postponed.

Dusty Baker said...

Mr. C-

We need a lot more sore hammies out of this game, too.

Orel said...

Figgity!

Steve Sax said...

Way to atone, Chone!

Orel said...

Damon = Pierre?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let's get figgy with it!

Dusty Baker said...

Figgettuhboutit.

Orel said...

Good for GMJ, scoring the go-ahead run.

Steve Sax said...

We need this series to go to seven, and everyone gets hit by lightning.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

http://bit.ly/p38lS

A little graphic to make Eric Aybar even more pissed.

Dusty Baker said...

Now there's no way they stop the game before allowing Yankmes to have a chance to bat in the bottom.

Steve Sax said...

Luckily for Fox, Ken Rosenthal, at his height, is safe.

Steve Sax said...

It's midnight on the east coast. Yay!

Dusty Baker said...

Fuentes getting ready...to throw some tallboy Bud Light empties over the outfield fence.

Mr. Customer said...

@sax

"struck by lightning"

Hey, the odds only get better the longer they play.

Just sayin'...

Dusty Baker said...

Taco Bell: you still haven't explained to me why I need to purchase black tacos, and what their favorable properties are as opposed to the properties of the regular-colored taco.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I hope Taco Bell still does that free taco thing. That's my only incentive for going there.

Dusty Baker said...

Free is good, MLASF.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

TIE GAME!

Orel said...

That A-Rod, he is not bad.

Dusty Baker said...

A-roid to the RF porch.

Mr. Customer said...

I still hate that guy, but I'm willing to forgive that one.

Dusty Baker said...

I just fisted another glass of pinot noir.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

Careful with the sharp edges

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Another closer bites the dust. I guess that leaves only Mariono and Lidge as the only good closers left. Am I forgeting anyone? I don't think so...


Yep, just Rivera and Lidge.

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASF

Street and Nathan are out.

So are Papelbon and Franklin.

Nope, that's everybody!

Dusty Baker said...

Mr. C-

Thanks for the tip!

Regards,
J. Beimel

Dusty Baker said...

Who'll stop the rain?

Steve Sax said...

Milli vanilli? No, wait, that was "blame it on the rain"

they'd better be careful, or the flood will sweep Robothal away

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Robothal: At this point, the rain has not swept me awa - (crash)

Dusty Baker said...

Breaking news: Bud Selig has just announced that this game will end in a tie.

Steve Sax said...

Orel, I can't find the popcorn.

Or the beer.

Steve Sax said...

Gotta love AL ball. A new pitcher for every batter!

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

I don't know, but I'll be Looking Out my Back Door to find out.

Steve Sax said...

Robothal's last update was like Eric Dickerson's famous MNF sideline interview. "It's raining, and it's wet."

Dusty Baker said...

Angels get a double. Better change pitchers!

Steve Sax said...

I know it's cold, but why is Maicer the only one with a neck warmer?

Dusty Baker said...

Is Generalissimo Francisco Franco still dead, Robothal?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

To the bottom of the 12th!

Dusty Baker said...

Just noted the avatar, MLASF.

Steve Sax said...

Ok, I'm done. Good luck Angels. I'm going to sleep.

Steve Sax said...

100

Dusty Baker said...

Sax, it's still early!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Dusty - And?...

Dusty Baker said...

#100?!? Oh no you dih-unt!

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASF-

And it's STRONG.

Orel said...

A-Rod up with the bases loaded.

Dusty Baker said...

Angels have them set up just where they want them.

Mr. Customer said...

Every crowd shot makes me want the Yanks to win a little less. The tables will be turned behind the orange curtain, for sure.

Orel said...

Very nice, Ervin!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And it continues!

Dusty Baker said...

Will we keep playing?

It looks like the rain has somewhat tapered off. Or am I just de-sensitized to a monsoon?

Orel said...

Oh Cano!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Can't-o

Dusty Baker said...

Cano? No, you can't!

Brandon said...

why can't I find this on my time warner package? What channel is it on?

Dusty Baker said...

They just said the rain has tapered off. Come on, 15 innings, fights that lead to suspensions, and a lot of sore hammies!

Dusty Baker said...

Brandon-

It's on FOX.

Mr. Customer said...

@Brandon

it's on plain old Fox.

Mr. Customer said...

@Dusty

Whooping cough for everyone!

Brandon said...

thanks dusty. I flipped through every channel. Must have been a commercial when i was on FOX.

Dusty Baker said...

Posada caught that one in the Hollidays.

Dusty Baker said...

Mr. C-

Maybe A-roid's gout will flare up. Jeter gets ricketts.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

ricketts and gout are the funniest un-funny afflictions around.

Orel said...

The announcers are so critical of Jeter. Really, it's unfair.

Mr. Customer said...

God, that swing just looked uncomfortable.

Dusty Baker said...

"Goiter" is (un)funny, too.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We keep playing in Da Bronx

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

The French Pox rounds out the top 5.

Dusty Baker said...

Is the French part funnier, or the pox part? Can't decide.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

The whole is greater than the sum of it's parts

Mr. Customer said...

Alright Jankees, I know you can find a way to screw this up!

You gotta believe!

Dusty Baker said...

Santana almost pulled an Utley.

Orel said...

ack

Mr. Customer said...

That wasn't the play he was looking for.

Dusty Baker said...

That's what the Yankmes can do to you. Every time.

Dusty Baker said...

Or make you do to yourself.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ouch

Mr. Customer said...

So, up 2-0, do I want the Yanks to sweep through and have a long layoff to get rusty, or do I want the Angels to come back and win the next few in Anaheim?

Dusty Baker said...

Izturis should get the pie.

Dusty Baker said...

Mr. C-

That's a tough one. Our household keeps going back and forth. I guess we need Los Anaheim to get one or two back to at least make Yanks run through even more pitcher than they did tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

I'mma pull a Sax and head to bed early on a Saturday night.

Get that whooping cough looked at!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm out.

Josh S. said...

I can't believe I watched the whole thing!

I don't really like that A-Rod fella, but that slow-mo shot of him hitting the homer in the rain was MONEY.

Delino DeShields said...

That game left me a disgruntled old man.
