It's too soon.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Go American League!

Nic j said...

AL? this is barely baseball.

Dusty Baker said...

well fuck. i would have been working less and watching gameday more if i knew there was a GWT up.

AL, wow. when does the pitcher get a turn to try to hit the little white ball?

Dusty Baker said...

HAH-hah! Jeter hasn't hit a HR yet. He's slippin'. Media must be speechless.

Nic j said...

if there is any bright side to our team playing so poorly in this round of the post season its that maybe the yankees wont throw a massive contract at Kemp, Ethier, Kershaw, or Brox.

Nic j said...

Scott Boras counting his money behind home plate to the right of the angels logo.

Dusty Baker said...

Scott Boras sits on a throne of lies!

Mr. Customer said...

God bless you all, but there is no (reasonable) outcome of this game that would satisfy me, so I'll abstain.

Nic j said...

I dont like the angels at all, but it makes me so sad when i watch them play the Yanks or the Sox and all their stupid fans outnumber the angels fans.

Mr. Customer said...

@Nic j

I was at Sox/Angels game 2. It may not have been 50/50, but it was damn close.

Dusty Baker said...

Kazmir coming undone already. That was bound to happen.

Mr. Customer said...

Has anyone released a sack full of rabid badgers in the stadium yet?

PenosCabell said...

These umps are horrible.

Nic j said...

haha, swisher is such a douche.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I guess the missed call on Swisher negates the missed pick-off call. I can't believe we're talking about umpire calls negating each other in the playoffs.

Nic j said...

watching this game makes me remember how much i hate the yankees.

I have nobody to root for now.

Unless we win, but lets not get crazy.

Nic j said...

It appears that the Manny "Showergate" incident is being pushed hard as a story. I couldnt really care less.

Mr. Customer said...

I'm still rooting for badgers.

Nic j said...

does it snow in Anaheim?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Badger isn't that far of a reach from Dodger. I'm with ya, Mr. C. Go Badger Blue!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Okay, now I'm ready.

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASF

Nice. I would definitely tune in to see a game that could get called on account of badgers.

Nic j said...

Damn i would hit homeruns too it i got a hot towel massage in the dugout afterward.

Nic j said...

smart play by Hunter

Nic j said...

looks like the umps owe the angels another make up call.

Nic j said...

Haha, "Bullshit" chants so close to disneyland?

fanerman said...

LOL. The showergate story is absurd.

Orel said...

The shower story is what happens when East Coast writers write about West Coast baseball. Wouldn't be surprised to see Plaschke pick it up, though.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So, the refs are returning to the NBA. Good news.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

All Mychal Thompson and Stu Lantz ever say is that guys are young.

"He'll bounce back, he's a young guy"

"His leg may be broken, but he's young, he'll pull through"

"I know he just had a heart attack, but I think he'll be fine, he's a young kid"

Dusty Baker said...

What's this about badgers? I want to see badgers.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

You and me both. There's still a chance.

Orel said...

The Yankees are relentless. 7-1.

Erin said...

In the category "Comeback Kids" on Jeopardy tonight, the answer had something to do with an 80s child star. The question? "Alyssa Milano."

Hmm. "Comeback Kids" and Milano in the same clue? Make of that what you will.

Orel said...

What did I say?

Orel said...

10-1 Yanks. Some NL team is going to be in for quite a challenge.

Paul said...

God I hate the Yankees. They make everything boring.

Orel said...

Works for me, Erin!

Dusty Baker said...

I don't have to show you any stinkin' badges!

Oh wait, you said badgers.

JuanLove said...

NLCS still seems doable for the dodgers.
maybe i'm biased

this one however, looks over.

Orel said...

Dodgers, meet Angels.

fanerman said...

If it's Yanks-Phils, I'm cheering for the Yankees. Please don't let it be Yanks-Phils.

Mr. Customer said...

9 innings, and not one damned badger. Not even a stoat to be seen.

Paul said...

Where are the sons of Jerel? I hate watching the Zods win.

Steve Sax said...

Gotta thank the Amgels for reminding us that a 3-1 hole could be a lot worse. Getting whipped at home like that? Ouch.

Come on, Angels!

Dusty Baker said...

COOL! There is a banner ad between posts on SoSG that has something to do with pirates (not the ball club that beat our ass recently but the swashbuckling kind). Arrrrrr!!

Nic j said...

I personally liked the AD about heart attack survival.
