rbnlaw said...

yay. go Lost Angels.

Can't seem to work up any enthusiasm at the moment. Stupid viruses that are going around.

Josh S. said...

Go OC Scioscias!

I almost overlooked the GT. Thought Karros may have made the GT a puzzle for us to find or something.

Dusty Baker said...

That didn't take long (Jeter HR on third pitch). Cue the Jetergasm from sports media.

Dusty Baker said...

Note for RBN:

"Orange County authorities are warning baseball fans against drinking and driving after the Angels' playoff game today and said law enforcement officers will be swarming the area around Angel Stadium looking for violators.

The Angels face the New York Yankees in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series after 1 p.m. [An earlier version of this post said the game would begin at 1 p.m.]

Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart, 22, died in April after a crash with an alleged drunk driver just seven miles from the stadium, where he had pitched earlier that night.
"The death of Nick Adenhart and his two friends was a tragedy and we will do our best to end this baseball season without any more DUI related deaths or injuires," Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens said in a news release.

The Anaheim Police Department distributed a news release asking that motorists not going to Angel Stadium avoid the area during peak traffic time and take alternate routes, and reminding fans that consuming alcohol in the Angel Stadium parking lot is prohibited."

May be some business coming your way.

Josh S. said...

Ah, so there needs to be no one on base for Vlad to be able to hit.

rbnlaw said...

DB,
I saw that this morning. They are not allowing any RV's in for the LCS in an effort to curb the drinkin'. Good luck.
Normally for games, there are about 5-10 RV's under the Big A and on weekends, the BBQ's are smokin. I know a cop who works the parking lot detail, he hates it.
Loves the overtime; hates the duty. He'd rather be doing on-field security.

Dusty Baker said...

MMMMmmmmmm....BBQ....

Dusty Baker said...

Can't see the game, but I heard there are a ton of Spank-me fans with lame Angels fan turnout.

rbnlaw said...

4 pitches: 2 outs?
The Angels are making this easy.

Josh S. said...

KLAA radio ads are even more painful than KABC ads.

Josh S. said...

Terry Smith is definitely the most tolerable of the Angel announce team. I could do without his "OUTTA HERE!" home run calls, but otherwise he's OK.

rbnlaw said...

I'll give this to the Lost Angels of State College Blvd; they will work like hell to find new ways to shoot themselves in the foot.

Hunter picked off. Rally Killin' Vlad walks. So much for two on; no outs.

Josh S. said...

Third Yank solo shot of the day.

rbnlaw said...

Wowie, powie, Howie!

Kendrick with the HR. Too little, too late? Too early to tell.

How 'bout them to's.

Dusty Baker said...

Out of my meeting. Who after Jeter hit the HRs for NY?

Josh S. said...

A-Rod and Damon.

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks, Josh.

For the record: Screw those assholes.

Eric Karros said...

Vlad ties the game

Dusty Baker said...

This is some true Earl Weaver ball here today.

Dusty Baker said...

What is this type of scoring when one man is on base, the batter hits a ball that doesn't go over the fence, but the runner advances to home plate?

F you Joba, you fat shit!

Josh S. said...

Joba chased, some guy with the totally made up name of Damaso Marte in.

Dusty Baker said...

Damaso Marte - is that a word scramble?

Josh S. said...

Jeez...Angels can't catch a break. They pick a guy off only to have Posada homer. (I guess the pickoff was a break, but still.)

Dusty Baker said...

Angels need to have a Coke and a smile here or it's lights out.

Dusty Baker said...

Let's see what Bud Light Tallboy Empties can do here in the 9th.

Josh S. said...

OK Angels, get this done. In about 20 minutes I stop giving a shit about you.

Dusty Baker said...

Seven minutes and Josh checks out!
