Post-Game 31 Thread: Kershaw KOs Ubaldo

DODGERS 2, ROCKIES 0

You pitched through eight; made Ubaldo look sedate,
Maybe your last outing, was just an unlucky fate

Clayton, your 84, was a frickin' great Game Score*,
We won our sixth of ten, and now there's hope again,
Because

When you go deep, we can be cocky,
We can dispatch the vaunted Rockies,
Said we're lots better than we seem,
(Though watching GA is a bad dream)

Now that we're leaving to play our rivals,
Fourth place makes us seem more viable,
We're no longer stuck in the cella'
We're no longer stuck in the cella', ella, ella, eh, eh, eh...

(*) Thanks to MSTI for the Kershaw Game Score research: Kershaw today tied for the ninth-best starting pitching performance in the majors this year

PGT for the nocturnal and insomniac among us?

Mr. Customer said...

Some of us have been hanging out here so much, we're all starting to resemble each other.

(HT Dusty and Mrs. Dusty for the photo)

Steve Sax said...

That shot is awesome! Is that the DBs?

Mr. Customer said...

@Sax

Dusty's iPhone, Mrs. Dusty's shot, my 'shop, your smiley to top it off.

Mr. Customer said...

Er, yeah, Dusty and I in the photo.

Knew I was missing something.

Dusty Baker said...

Nice work!

We need to develop frowny faces for when we are at the game but the team gets shelled for 6 runs before an out is recorded.

Dusty Baker said...

Those Customers and Bakers sure know how to layer.

Steve Sax said...

But as long as we have beer, even losses can result in happy faces

Steve Sax said...

How do the Customers and Bakers know each other, btw? Random meeting at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire?

Dusty Baker said...

"Renaissance Pleasure Faire" - HAH!

We were both dressed as bar wenches and struck up a friendship over drynks.

Dusty Baker said...

OT:

I sent some derogatory Tweet after the Lakers win (Suck it Mormons or something like that). Now I notice all of the sudden this guy is following my Tweets:

* Name Lucky Lobos
* Bio Forming a coalition to make removing members from the Mormon Church easier. Stop the abuse of children, eight is not old enough to join a cult!

Mr. Customer said...

@Sax

Prithee, how did you know about the Ren Faire?

@Dusty

Layering = Chubby Chic

karina said...

@Dusty Baker i was about to say that i love how you both were wearing layers.Also, those blue faces are very flattering complexions.

p.s i like Mr Customer's shirt :)

Dusty Baker said...

Chubby Chic! It's funny cause it's true.

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

Thanks, I didn't think I would meet my validation quota this early in the week ;)

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

I respect that your validation quota is 1.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

What can I say, I ain't high maintenance.

Steve Sax said...

Hey, I'm all about the Faire. Any place with grog is fine by me. I'm just sorry I missed the SoSG event there.

Dusty Baker said...

How can anyone miss out on Mr C and Dusty, dressed as medieval wenches, serving up fine Grog?

Now I'm in the mood for Grog. HMS Bounty is right down the street...who's with me?

Mr. Customer said...

The only beer wenches I could pass for are at the Hofbräuhaus.

karina said...

Mr Customer says "layering=chubby chic". Dusty says "it's funny because it's true". I see a theme of self derogation but you know what? chubby is not the same as tall and strong, ok?

Mr Customer i respect you are low maintenance, so +2

I love the words you teach me: wenches, grog and prithee :)

Steve Sax said...

Here's to me grog

Mr. Customer said...

I will be singing the drunk philosopher's song quietly at my desk before the day is out, I can tell.

Dusty Baker said...

All this talk of grog has me wanting to play the Pirates again. Not the first week Pirates, but the ones we played at the Ravine.

Or maybe I should want to play the Mariners?
