Random rantings and ravings about the Los Angeles Dodgers, written by a small consortium of rabid Dodger fans. With occasional comments on baseball, entertainment, pop culture and life in general.

Lucas MayJon LinkJames McDonaldAll optioned to minor league camp just now.
Tweet from TBLA:"Brad Ausmus (lower back pain) shut down until Wednesday. He received an epidural injection today (thanks to @dodgerscribe for the note)"Jeez. At least I heard that Martin was ahead of sched.Waht are we, the Mets?
looking forward to watching the thread tonight from the pressbox @ camelback ranch!
Keeps us posted, Alex.
just announced first pitch and 66 degrees!
The weather is perfect behind homeplate!
That 4-5-3 double play to take us to middle of the 1st was the only excitement do far.
we can see people behind homeplate clearly, betsy. wave to us game thread nerds. just don't be one of those people who talk on their cell phones the whole time!
Funny you should say that....had to tell the guy next to me to shut up!
Thanks for checking in, Betsy! Nothing like having a source behind home plate.
sounds like there are more Padres people here based on that last HR...
Betsy: did you hear that they canceled March Madness at SOSG for three weeks? No need to check the site. Stay in AZ as long as you like.
Can we feed you phrases to heckle with, Betsy? ;-) Not that you aren't coming up with plenty on your own.
ManRam didn't quite get all of that one, but GOD DAMN I wanted him to. I need a Manny HR tonight.
Padilla not looking so hot tonight. And what's up with JMac's fall from grace?
@NeeebsI don't think Young Mc really had that far to fall. He's just not ready yet for either SP or even bullpen.
Wade fucking LeBlanc, not this again.
VPad: throw at LeBlanc!
there goes the perfect game.
watching the Cabrera clothesline maneuver was positively priceless...and you could see it coming a mile away!
Heckling away and getting disparaging looks from Padre fans close by. Neeebs my skills are so fast i could be in taiwan and still beat you :)
SoSG MM trash talking spreads to the STGTs. Love it!
Belliard's homer brought out some serious cowbell action from the crowd.
just announced in pressbox that Sherrill is in.
Wooh. First video of the Dodgers season.
Constructive criticism for Steiner:Mrs. Dusty and I just made a Chipotle run. We left the telly and turned the radio broadcast on right away. [This is our idea of a romantic Saturday night.] We listened to the call of the sequence where Manyy stepped up to his 2nd plate appearance. Steiner described a huge cut and long fly ball Manny hit, saying something like "If it stays fair it is goooone!" He and Monday went on to talk about Manny's swing, his new-found balance in the swing this Spring, etc. It wasn't until the pitch that Manny popped up to the pitcher (I believe) (was it the next pitch, or was there another one in between? the radio listener had no way of knowing) that the radio listener was able to ascertain whether the ball had indeed gone for a HR or had gone foul.Charley, you got to tell the tale, man. I can't freaking see the television when I'm listening in the car.
Is it wrong to say, "I love Betsy!"She is bringing the sauce, and Neeebs is the dish. Woot.
13,506 show up tonight for Padres-Dodgers game...a new cactus league record. How off the wire...
DB, my kid's team beat Chelsea (from Yorba Linda) 1-0. Ha!Is that trash talking? Let me get another beer.
Who's at the game?
RB-I can't say shit given Gunners' place in the table right now.But it will be as short-lived as a Rosicky clean bill of health.Oh, and thanks for shit as my fantasy defender Vermaellen (sp?) got a red card.
ps-Let me get another beer, too.
So right about Steiner, DB. Can't tell you how many times I've been in the car, saying to the radio "...and? AND???"
wow blanks has had the magic bat tonight...
Dodgers have more errors than hits. Yay.
Continuing the Steiner criticism:WE KNOW MILLER HAS A LOT OF TATTOOS. We got it. What else you have on the guy?
He tattooed his arms solid blue? Wow!
Completing the hat trick of Steiner criticism tonight:That Belly#2 fly was not going to leave the park. Why, then, did the inflection in your voice and your commentary lead me to believe that I needed to put down what I was doing in the kitchen and run in really quickly, only to see the outfielder catch a routine fly?
Steiner's biggest problem is that he'll go innings without giving a score.
Sorry Meg Whitman. I'm not voting for you just based on the ridiculous volume level of your commercials. Plus I always think of Anne from arrested development when I see her. Vote for Meg Whitman… She's really funny.
Lindblom making him look bad. Nice curve!
crowd is getting boisterous...Van Slyke got an earful at the plate.
Commercials with over-the-top stereotyped Indian fellows...who signed off on this shit?
Just got this Twitter from some dude thinking I was Dusty Baker the Reds mgr, or pretending I was:@dustybkrdodgr put down the toothpick + promise me you will take the "cuban missle "north-east"- tired o hearin yo crap bout "seasonin" ...Wrong thing to send a man who is current president of the National Organization of Learn How to Fucking Use Quotation Marks Correctly.
Do close quotes mean nothing to these savages? Plus they neglected the apostophe on their aw-shucks midwest vernacular.
In just twenty-five and a half hours, we will get to hear the master return.TGVIB: Thank God Vin Is Back
I can't wait to utter my traditional pre-game phrase when Vinny comes on and advises us that, indeed, it's time for Dodger baseball. When he says "...wherever you may be" I MUST say (or the world will fall apart) "I'm on the sofa, Vinny." It's been this way forever, and forever shall be. Amen.
