I'll wait for a hint to be posted.

I mean, Dodgers in 4.

Fred's Brim said...

The blue team's gonna win three games before the red team does

Steve Sax said...

Fred, are you referring to the ESPN map colors?

LLCoolL said...

I think the Lakers can close it out in 5.

Fred's Brim said...

I sure hope not!

I try not to refer to anything ESPN these days. I can barely watch Monday Night Football anymore

Fred's Brim said...

Dodgers in 4

Mr. Customer said...

Cards in the square root of -1

Mr. Customer said...

Or Dodgers in 5.

karina said...

Agree with EK and Mr C:

Dodgers in 5.

p.s @Mr C square root of -1? why do you have to confound me so early?

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

Sorry, math humor. I'm just twisted that way.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Mr. C - Is it because "I" does not exist?

Dodgers in four. They take one from the Carp/'Wright duo, and beat the two other schmucks who start.

Mr. Customer said...

MLASF,

Yes. i is an imaginary number.

Wicks said...

The LA Times picked the Cards in 3? UMMMMMMM What!?

Dusty Baker said...

Answer sent.

Dusty Baker said...

Dodgers in 5 and I lose 6 years off my lifespan.

Dusty Baker said...

Mr. C-

There is no such thing as "math humor." That shit ain't funny.

QuadSevens said...

There are 10 kinda of people in this world. Those who can read binary and those who can't.

Dodgers in 4.

rbnlaw said...

@Mr. C:
Shouldn't that be I "am" an imaginary number?

If I knew Lisa Guerrero was a SoSG, I'd have been her a lot sooner.

Dodgers in 4.

rbnlaw said...

Oh, and WTF with Delino?
As Orel would say, "The boy ain't right."

Josh S. said...

There is no √-1 in team.

koufax said...

Dodgers in 4 and a big win tonight in game 1!

Steve Dittmore said...

Wouldn't Guerrero be a DoSG? Or is that Wilton?

Here in the heart of Cardinals country, everyone's talking smack. I'm going LA in 3 just to annoy them.

Nic j said...

I think the lakers can win it.


Oh, and blue in 4.

Dusty Baker said...

Steve-

If you really want to rattle them, tell them how much Skip Schumaker sucks.

Neeebs said...

How's this for posturing; If the Dodgers win at least one of the first two games, then Dodgers win in 5.

Dusty Baker said...

@ Neeebs-

*Scratches head* Wait, what time did the train heading to Chicago leave, and how fast was it going?

rbnlaw said...

I just read Robothal's piece where he picks the Dodgers in 5. Amazing.
Even more amazing are the posts after the article. Loads of St. Louie fans piling on our beloved Blue. They help dispel the myth that Cardinal fans are the most knowledgeable fans in baseball. Most sound like slack-jawled yokels.

Dusty Baker said...

@RB-

Are my cousins posting rude, ill-educated comments on sports sites again?

koufax said...

anyone else getting incredibly anxious for game time?

rbnlaw said...

DB,
Are you saying they lack the "insightful" gene?

Dusty Baker said...

@ Koufax

Anxious isn't the word.

Grease is the word, though.

Dusty Baker said...

@RB

That's one on many genes they lack.

Steve Dittmore said...

@Dusty - You're right on Schumaker. Just talked to a big Cards fan and he wants to see Schumaker in CF. Why are they fixated on that guy?

rbnlaw said...

So, I saw a homeless guy at the store parking lot today as I was coming out. No big deal, right? I mean there are thousands of homless in the greater Southland. So this guy comes up and asks if I could spare any change for something to eat. He was older and seemed to honestly be hungry. I gave him whatever change I had and thought nothing more of it.

I pulled out of the parking lot and shortly turned around. I found him still in the parking lot and gave him some of the snacks we had left from my daughter's soccer game (not much, but hey, he was grateful). Now, what made me come back and give him more?
Was it the honest look in his eyes? Not really?
His polite demeanor? No.
My liberal guilt kicking in? Not likely.

The reason? He was wearing a Dodger cap.

We Dodger fans must stick together in the face of the Cardinal Nation bearing down on us. We help the least of us and try to be the best of us!

Neeebs said...

@DB:

That's just my fancy way of saying we need to beat the Cards' Big 2 and then the Emperor has no clothes.

@RBN:

Don't be fooled. I saw that same guy in OC wearing an Angels hat. It's called knowing your demographics.

Mr. Customer said...

@Dusty

No math humor?! Can millions of xkcd readers be wrong?

@rbnlaw

I are not really sure what you is implying.

@Josh S.

"There is no √-1 in team."

Two words. Bumper. Sticker.


I've been in meetings with engineers all morning. Explains a lot, doesn't it?

rbnlaw said...

@neeebs
Good thing I didn't want those fruit cups anyway.

karina said...

@Mr C i dig more your jokes about greek mythology. Math beyond the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division is impossible!

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

I never used to be good at math, either, until I had a professor that knew how to convey it to my twisted mind. I went from hating it to loving it a couple of weeks. It was all downhill from there.

Neeebs said...

@MC:

I call that guy, "Professor Kinderman"

Dusty Baker said...

@ Karina, Mr. C-

You lost me at "division."

To quite Teen Talk Barbie, "Math class is tough!"

Neeebs said...

@DB:

QuIte tough, indeed.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker @Neeebs i failed almost every math test in junior high/high school, even though i was an straight As student, so my parents had to pay someone to give me extra classes. I never got punished because i was just helpless.

Delino DeShields said...

In defense of the Delino... aka a Series of excuses strung together.

1. The Cardinals are a very good team.

2. Sax asked me while I was distracted at work.

3. One of my dearest friends (let's call him Mr. X) works for the Cards. Game 7, NLCS - while I was at Shea, staring in shock as Yadi F'ing Molina knocked in a two run homer, Mr. X was welcoming his second girl into the world. While I chew away at a ring pop, Mr. X owns a World Series ring.

So what does this all mean? I NEVER bet against the Cards in any situation.

And for the record, I'd love to be wrong.
