Aybar

Dusty Baker said...

I totally had a premonition that the Yanks prematurely ejaculated World Series banner was going to be the graphic!

Dusty Baker said...

Yanks stick with that swisher Swisher.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Saints win again, and USC jumps to #5. I just need another Halo victory to cap this day.

Dusty Baker said...

MLASF-

Where was SC in BCS before today? Can't recall.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@ #7

Dusty Baker said...

Thx

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ur wlcm

Dusty Baker said...

Solid start from Petttitttte.

Orel said...

Jeter makes contact. The crowd goes wild!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Look at Derek Jeter, that little trooper. Playing even though he has a bruise on his right thigh.

Orel said...

We are so bitter.

Orel said...

Hopefully the Phillies are moldering with inactivity.

Orel said...

Teixeira single. A-Rod up.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Teixeira gets a hit, and the Yankees win!

Orel said...

Yankees starting some two-out madness.

Orel said...

Does this lineup ever go down 1-2-3?

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho almostdiendo already.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I wonder if Jorge tries to imagine that the ball is Burnett's head

Orel said...

Saunders wiggles off the hook. Can we expect to see Lackey in the late innings?

Dusty Baker said...

Tonight's suggested drinking game: drink whenever McCarver directly or indirectly credits Yankees with already having won the ALCS or World Series.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Apple is running the Mac ads into overdrive to combat Windows 7

Orel said...

@DB: Prepare to die of alcohol poisoning.

Orel said...

When will laptops with touchscreens become common?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Drink whenever Ken Rosenthal says something that really is actually nothing.

You dial 9-1, and when I say so, dial 1 again.

Orel said...

Did Vlad swing at Pettitte's warmup pitches?

Orel said...

Not that time, Jeter!

Dusty Baker said...

I picked the wrong day to play drinking games with pure grain alcohol.

Dusty Baker said...

MLASF-

911 is a joke.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ouch

Orel said...

That was not Jeter-esque, Vlad. Swisher starts the 9-3 DP.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Dusty - Do you prefer poison control?

Orel said...

So get up, get, get get down
911 is a joke in yo town
Get up, get, get, get down
Late 911 wears the late crown

Dusty Baker said...

What the flip was Vlad thinking? Pathetic.

We have seen more base-running blunders this postseason than...than watching Kemp two seasons ago.

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks for taking that and running with it, Orel. Made my day. It's the simple things...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn kids and your rock-n-roll and your iPhones and you layflex collars and your poloroid cameras and your Vizios and your Frito-Lays and your...

Orel said...

Yo, wassup with that brother Chuckie D? He swear he nice.

Orel said...

I want the Phillies to lose in the World Series, but I wouldn't mind seeing an ALCS Game 7.

Dusty Baker said...

Yo the brother don't swear he's nice, he knows he's nice.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Why is Richard Nixon talking to Cameron Diaz?

Orel said...

WHAT GOES ON?

Dusty Baker said...

Cause, um, what else am I going to do tomorrow night if there's no Game 7?

Orel said...

Is it supposed to be shocking that Frank Langella is missing half his face in that preview? Wow, bad CGI!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Orel - the thing is that you don't notice it until it's pointed out to you

Orel said...

I saw the version where they don't point it out, they just expect you to notice.

Orel said...

Cano gets it started.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I didn't realize he was missing half of his face until I read a promo saying a guy with half his face missing was at their door. How hard is it to make a guy look like he's missing half his face?

Dusty Baker said...

Last night I was watching some home video of Yankees roll call on You Tube. And I was thinking, we need to develop a roll call for a GT next year.

"Ka-ri-na! Clap Clap Clap! Ka-ri-na! Clap Clap Clap!"

Orel said...

"Honey, there's a guy with half his face missing at the door!"

Orel said...

I wish we could post photos in Game Threads.

Dusty Baker said...

About time Aybar got that tarantula off his head.

Orel said...

No more Sideshow Bob 'do for Aybar!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

1,000,000!

Dusty Baker said...

1,000,000

Orel said...

Another two-on, two-out situation for the Yankees.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey, it's Derek What's-his-face.

Orel said...

(pops cork on champagne)

Dusty Baker said...

This Jeter kid has some potential.

Orel said...

Who got 1,000,000?

Paul said...

Jeter is up and gets the Ruiz 2-0 treatment

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah it would be cool to post pics. I've tried to post links to pics using TinyURL links, but usually by the time I can do that the moment is gone.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Posting pics is the best part of TBLA.

Orel said...

Rancho Broxiendo

Paul said...

Oh oh ducks on the pond for Judas.

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho ohshitheretheyankeesgoagain.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That Johnny Damon may be good, but he's no Derek Jeter.

Paul said...

Jeter ran to second on that one. What a gamer.

Fred's Brim said...

shit I missed it! Roundabout by Yes came on the car radio and I was completely distracted. I totally missed the odometer flip over!

Orel said...

Sure, blame it on progressive rock.

Paul said...

Extra bases!

Dusty Baker said...

I think MLASF already blamed it on rock and roll earlier in this thread.

Paul said...

I wonder what kind of food they serve at NYY Steak.

Orel said...

To solve the umpiring problem, MLB should have every single available umpire on the field at once.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That Jeff Mathis hits like he's Derek Jeter.

Orel said...

I blame it on the bossa nova.

Dusty Baker said...

I god damned sure want to have some of that NY Steak about right now.

Paul said...

I would say blame it on the rain but it never rains in southern California. That is what they tell me.

Dusty Baker said...

The Most Interesting Man in the World is only half the man that Derek Jeter is.

Orel said...

Wow, Aybar is hacking away all over. All opposite-field foul balls.

Dusty Baker said...

Blame it on Rio.

Orel said...

It rained here last week!

Orel said...

And so I blame it on the rain.

Dusty Baker said...

Were you lip-syncing that, Paul?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wow. Cano just made the second best play of the game. The first being Jeter's putout, of course.

Orel said...

Angels take the lead!

Dusty Baker said...

Angles draw first blood.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If Derek Jeter was pitching, he'd have struck out the side by now.

Paul said...

Angels make it rain!

Orel said...

Derek who?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What's the holdup here?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hunter strikes out, but the Halos strike first.

After two-and-a-half, it's Angels 1 - Jeters 0

Paul said...

Is it 210 to right field. Andre would have had a four dinger game.

Reminds me when I feared for my life at batting practice at the Colisuem last year.

"don't do it Manny!"

Dusty Baker said...

Hunter- you can't stare at that pitch and hope it's called outside.

Dusty Baker said...

This "Derek" person and this "Jeter" person - are they two people, or the same guy?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Jeter jetered that jeter from here to Jeter, but Jeter just jetered the jeter to jeter the jeter and jeter it for four jeters.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JETER!

Orel said...

It was one out, Pettitte. Settle down.

Dusty Baker said...

Wipe that fucking smirk off your face, Giuliani! Smarmy shitbag.

Paul said...

Jeter is IG-88. I know this.

fanerman said...

So now its gameday and I'm not wearing the Angels shirt that my aunt gave me for Christmas. Why? Because the shirt is dirty and I'm sitting in my clean post-shower only chair. Did I ever mention that I have OCD?

Paul said...

Giants 7 Arizona 0. Timmah throwing a shut out.

Dusty Baker said...

I think I have an old Angels hat that I got at a watch party in 2002. Can't bring myself to dig it out, though. Just can't cross that line.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

McCarver: "The only knock on Bobby Abeu has been how tentative he is near a wall"

I would have thought that the only knock would be that he's not Derek Jeter.

Paul said...

I think most people are tentative when heading towards a wall.
At least those who don't have brain damage.

fanerman said...

Did I say OCD? I mean, the OC Disorder.

Dusty Baker said...

Yank-mes strand 6. A-fraud nearly took one out. We'll see how much longer Saunders can keep them at bay.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm actually at the in-laws in the OC tonight (Buena Park). Deep in the heart of Angels territory.

Wearing my LA hat, though, just for good measure.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Fanerman - Don't call it that.

Paul said...

The only knock on Jeter is that he might be a little too great.

Orel said...

@Fanerman "I'm sitting in my clean post-shower only chair."

Really?

Dusty Baker said...

That ball to Vlade was outside, but the ump has been calling it a strike all night (so I guess that passes as fair).

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was a heckuva play by Jeter. Nice throw!

Paul said...

I think there is a starbucks in the Yankees dugout.

Dusty Baker said...

5 Ks for Petttttttittttttte. I counted at least 3 were backward Ks. What are you waiting for, Halos? St. Peter? Gotta swing that thing they call a "bat" that you get to take with you up to the plate when it's your turn to, what the kiddos today call, "hit."

Dusty Baker said...

My MVP through three and a half innings: Jeter

Orel said...

I would like to see a Kuo vs. Cano matchup.

Orel said...

My MDJ: Derek Jeter.

Orel said...

Two on, no out for the Yankees. Will Saunders escape this jam?

Dusty Baker said...

Did you see how Jeter watched that Swisher hit from the dugout? We really need to stop to appreciate what we're seeing.

Paul said...

I am reading Nietzsche because I feel as Dodger fans we are stuck in an eternal recurrence.

Also because chicks dig aphorisms. Well maybe not.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Cano points to the sky, thanking the heavens for the gift that is Derek Jeter.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wait, that was Swisher! Dammit, FOX!

Dusty Baker said...

@ Paul-

"Jeter is dead."

Paul said...

Oh yeah well Eithier is Emperor Clutch!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Derek Jeter is 100% effective 26.9% of the time.

Orel said...

Good recovery by Mathis. Full count.

Paul said...

He is made from bits of babe Ruth so you know he is good.

Orel said...

Mmmm...Baby Ruth.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

A Jeter-esque AB for Jeter.

Orel said...

Rancho Jeteriendo!

Orel said...

He reminds me of Derek Jeter.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let's see how much of a Jeter Johnny Damon is.

Paul said...

Ducks on the pond for Judas again.

Don't disappoint Jeter this time.

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho youcansensesomethingbigabouttohappenbut hopeitdoesn't

Orel said...

Derek Jeter! Advances to second!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I think Jeter should get the credit for those two runs there.

Paul said...

Swisher is such a ummm special winner.

Dusty Baker said...

That ball has ZERO movement of any kind on it.

Dusty Baker said...

And wasn't particularly fast, either.

Paul said...

Is Jamie in the crowd? That two timing insubordinate....

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho whatissossciagoingtodonow.

Orel said...

A cheapie for Teixeira. Rancho Jeter.

Paul said...

Cue John Williams.

Dusty Baker said...

Saunders falling behind every batter now. Take Kershaw out now!!!!

Paul said...

I can't see my boyfriend!!

Dusty Baker said...

Whoa, sorry....PTSD episode.

Paul said...

Clowns to the left of me. Jeter to the right.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Jeter scores!

Dusty Baker said...

A postage stamp on my desk just stood up and said, "Damn that strike zone is tiny tonight!"

fanerman said...

@Orel, yup. I have 2 chairs in my room... just for that.

Dusty Baker said...

I just had a Jetergasm.

Dusty Baker said...

Oliver is wearing earplugs so he won't have to hear McCarver's inane b.s..

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Medium-Daddy Vladdy!

Dusty Baker said...

Vlad finally said, well, if you're calling that low and outside ball for a strike, I'll reach out and hit it.

Dusty Baker said...

Put in Joba the Hut!

Paul said...

Boo

fanerman said...

Damn.

Dusty Baker said...

No one takes off his shin protector and walks to 1B like Jeter. Take a mental picture of this, folks.

Steve Sax said...

Hey guys! Just showed up. Who are the Jeters playing tonight?

Dusty Baker said...

Time to stretch.

Steve Sax said...

Sorry I'm late btw; I was watching Jetering with the Jeters.

Jeter was winning.

Orel said...

Getting late for the non-Jeters.

Dusty Baker said...

Was about to send out a search party for you, Sax.

Dusty Baker said...

Is it against the rules for Jeter to pinch hit for himself?

Dusty Baker said...

McCarver: "Every Nano Inch."

Orel said...

GO BLUE!

Steve Sax said...

That McCarver is WILD! Mixing up metric and Roman measurements is just wacky. He should do stand-up!

Orel said...

Beautiful 3-6-3 DP!

Orel said...

Two-inning save for Mariano? What, the Yankees don't have a Brim Reaper?

Orel said...

Jeter didn't get that, so it should be a foul ball.

Dusty Baker said...

I just cannot friggin stand this broadcast crew. It's totally ruining my enjoyment of the game. Just CALL THE GAME. I don't care about your opinion. If you want to manage that badly, make a career switch.

Dusty Baker said...

Not getting to that ball was in his Master Plan in order to set up the DP.

Orel said...

Just turn Vin on, DB.

Dusty Baker said...

"From one dazzling pitch to a dazzling play" -McCarver

*slits wrists*

Dusty Baker said...

I tried turning Vin on but there's a 96 hour lag.

Orel said...

Wishful thinking by Vlad.

Dusty Baker said...

Manny taught Vlad how to count.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey, Gibby - er, uh, I mean Vladdy - gets a hit.

Steve Sax said...

Dusty, just keep uttering these words to yourself;

"You're a real man, Deion Sanders! A real man!"

Dusty Baker said...

I would SO love for Angels to come back so the media would ask 4 trillion questions about bringing Rivera in.

Steve Sax said...

Whachoo talking about? Willits?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If there's anyone who can match the grit and determination of Derek Jeter, it's Mariano Rivera.

Dusty Baker said...

Are Jeter and Rivera the same person, though? Have you ever seen them together?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If anyone can get their ears that big, it'd be Derek Jeter.

Orel said...

Kendrick really dropped the ball there.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Did McCarver say anything of importance just there?

Orel said...

WHOOPS

Orel said...

Angels self-destructing.

Dusty Baker said...

Did Mark DeRosa throw that?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Angels deserve to lose. I'm sorry, but they just have not earned a victory with this shitty play here.

Orel said...

Two errors in one inning! That's grrrrreat!

Orel said...

Don't talk about the Dodgers like that, MLASF!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey, it's what's-his-face!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yeah, that doesn't work when I expressly state the Angels in the post, Orel. But thanks for trying.

Dusty Baker said...

I said this BEFORE the self-destruction to those around me, so it's not just hindsight. But why on earth would you put Kazmir in? Yanks just spank this guy.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

McCarver explaining what the pitcher did to not screw that play up.

Orel said...

ESPN fired Steve Phillips. Expect a lawsuit any day now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

They fired Phillips? Damn, now what am I supposed to do if I want...well, how else will I hear...but what happens if there's...okay, I give. Phillips offered nothing to the already terrible ESPN broadcast. At least it frees up a spot for someone competent.
