Post-Game 22 Thread: 'There Is A Loft Upstairs. You Can Use That Firepole'

PIRATES 2, DODGERS 0

Hmm. Last year, we started the season 14-8, but this year, we've started the season 8-14. It just seems like everything's a little backwards...

Ah, Kershaw was safe on that tag.

Dr. El Attrache is going to need to look at Dusty's armpit.

If it means anything, we should see a nice influx of prospects by season's end.

NicJ said...

like i said before, Sherrill can bring in a nice haul if he turns it around. I doubt the dodgers would keep him through next year anyways because he is going to cost a little too much for a setup guy.

Who gets to 10 wins first, us or the O's?

NicJ said...

The astros actually have a better record than us at the moment.

Well all I can say is the sweet will taste better someday with all this sour.

I thought I had idea when that someday would be...I don't now.

This must be what it feels like to be a Giant fan.

Just got back from the game. It was frustrating everytime jamey caroll came up with runners on, knowing that he would not drive them in.

Paul said...

Also this is what happens when you promote the one freakin series with the Yankees and hold loyal fans hostage.

The Yankees? really? We are freakin Dodgers not the the Devil Rays.

We should be able to sell tickets to see our team not some other team we play every four years or so.

This is what happens when you don't take pride in a great organization because you don't have any context of what it is like to know we are rooted in Koufax, and Drysdale and Garvey and Lopes and Baker.

You can parade those guys all you want but if don't feel it you don't know it. Hallelujah! Where is the tylenol.

Paul said...

I done with this team until tommorrow...i mean later tonight.

David said...

Plus, also, our chances of actually winning those games against the Yankees are looking more and more slim.

Bryan said...

Very true. All the advertisements and PR have nothing to do with the history or prestige of the dodgers. It's all about the fact that we are in LA, which has celebrities.

Clayton Kershaw has thrown more pitches than any other MLB pitcher. Wow.

i am going to take a break from the team this weekend. I've found that I am not getting mad at them anymore, and that's not good. I feel like the parent of an out-of-control teenager who has come to accept that his child is going do something to ruin their lives, like start a stripping career or drive off a cliff in a drug-addled frenzy

Dusty Baker said...

Good people - sorry to have fallen asleep last night after a long day of travel, only to wake up this morning to glance at the fetid box score staring at me from the skimpy LA Times sports section. Like FB, I seem to have gone from angry to numb. What. The. Fuck.

This team is on the brink. It can be turned around, but we need a good fight (either among our own players or against the other team) or something similar to act as a catalyst. Maybe Tomy can go down to the clubhouse and try to fight one of our players. He could probably kick GA's ass, in fact.

Screw this. I'm not watching until...mid-afternoon when I start getting anxious again.

Betsy said...

Sigh, was at the game and boy was it a bust. No wonder no one took me up on my offer for free tickets next week.

Star Wars reference: behind all the makeup and the backwards voice, that's Grand Moff Tarkin at the shopkeeper.
This and the "walking thru the mirror" scene in Airplane are two of the greatest mindgames played in mainstream comedy films.
