World Serious Game 1 Thread: Phils @ Yanks, 5p

CC Sabathia (0-0, 0.00) vs. Cliff Lee (0-0, 0.00).

Well, here we are: another World Series featuring neither the Dodgers nor the Angels. Still, we're baseball fans, and this is the last call for baseball before we descend into an off-season filled with accusations, allegations and arbitration. Enjoy!

Who do you want to win the World Series?
Phillies. Go NL!
Yankees. Avenge the Dodgers!
I don't care!

Ugh. Is this some sort of exhibition game?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wait, there's still baseball? I thought the season was over already.

Yanks use the star wars music for the player intros too?

My captives have said I may be free tomorrow but for tonight some friends are kidnapping me to watch the game somewhere near the ocean I guess.

I can already tell this game is going to be long and so it will probably be on when I am yes back at the hotel bar screaming for Broxton to throw strikes.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That Jeter kid has some talent.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

After 3, it's Bastards 1 - Bastards 0

Dusty Baker said...

Hello? Hello? Is this thing on?

Dusty Baker said...

F work. Damn grip and grin. Taking a break from schmoozing and watching the game/posting masterful insight in this space.

Josh S. said...

It's like a classic heel vs. heel wrestling match. Oddly enough, when the game started, I felt myself pulling for the Phils. Don't know why. Go with who beat ya? Pro-NL? Who knows?

Aguilas game on TV, they are losing 6-1, bottom of the 5th. In 7 games, other teams have scored 41 runs while they have scored 16 runs. Awesome, right?

So i decided to hang out here and share the misery of not watching the Dodgers play the World Series.

Dusty Baker said...

That is such a brilliant parallel you just drew, Josh. Love it.

Dusty Baker said...

Karina-

Who is it we need to be supporting to help you out? Is it Aguilas? Hit us up with a link to your team's site or something. Want to learn more about them. Can have Mrs. Dusty translate if needed.

karina said...

That was a monster home run by Utley.

karina said...

Team site is not very good, but if you want to check it out is:

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So the Bastard is leading the Bastards against the Bastards, 2-0.

I'm pretty damn bitter.

Dusty Baker said...

@ karina - thx!

@ mlasf - i share your bitterness; in fact, may rival it. however, for a lame reason i'm glad for utley: he's from pasadena.

Josh S. said...

Utley with two chairshots to Sabathia, but the big man won't drop.

karina said...

I confess i want the Yankees to win. Guess i want to see my father happy about it, though he'll repeat over and over "Yankees are champions"

He's a great fan and i still don't explain how i ended loving Dodger Blue instead of pinstripe pride.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't know, Dusty. I'm pretty damn bitter.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lee didn't even care about that popup.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker if you get some baseball blues, the league is offering live baseball games for free, link is www.lvbp.com

If someone wants to join winter baseball fun, you're welcome to join!

karina said...

Ibanez 2 RBI single, so it's Unbearable Reds 4, Pinstripes 0.

Matt said...

Can we add an option in the poll that reads "The earth opens up and swallows both teams?"

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh yeah, Phillies have this wrapped up.

Josh S. said...

Cliff Lee's pretty fun to watch when he's using his magic devil powers against a team I don't like.

*slams shot glass on bar*

I thought this was the Billy Martin bar not the Ricky Martin bar.

Well no frank at manhattan beach but tryin to mix friends and management was not something I could express in words on the public SOSG. Still lookin for Scarlett but found a Kelly.

Still for this country boy what I saw on the beach. I might never leave. Yankees suck!!

Paulie: Are you channeling Kerouac or are you Jack himself? Either way you're my hero.

For me, it's "Go Phillies" because -- aside from privileged, overfed Yankees fans -- who wants the Bombers to get 27 rings? Their fans will be damned annoying if they do.
