Hopefully Ned's belief in Flat Breezy is well founded.

Fred's Brim said...

uhoh blogger is freaking me out again

Steve Sax said...

Oh God, it's Sherrill

it's a trap!

Fred's Brim said...

and so is Sherrill

Josh S. said...

Mrs. S, after the Bonafacio hit:

"Why? Why not that kid, what's his name, Shefling, Shitling?"

She is killing me dead tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't care too much for the Cardinals.

Fred's Brim said...

and the lefty goes down
are you taking notes, Joe?

Mr. Customer said...

@db

At least your teams of choice are color-coordinated. I don't know what the fuck color I should wear half the time.

Steve Sax said...

Josh S 9:35p that face made me snarf my wine

Steve Sax said...

Who invited Kenny G?

Time to bounce.

Paul said...

The Marlins announcers are talking about drinking games.

Mr. Customer said...

Blogger has got me paranoid. Any delay in commentary I immediately interpret as comment death.

Fred's Brim said...

get one, X

Paul said...

Which one is the real Mr. C???

Dusty Baker said...

I just went thru the same panic, Mr C. I even closed the browser, went back to the GT, refreshed several times, etc. Whew.

Paul said...

Well one Mr. C deleted the other. So no use arguing about it.

Josh S. said...

@Sax: You should have seen the face in person. I guess we both realized we had run out of words to complain about Sherrill. I laughed for a solid minute before I could pull myself together to post.

Josh S. said...

When I post a comment, I get taken back to the first page. Annoying.

Josh S. said...

@Paul: Dusty is a Marlins announcer?

Dusty Baker said...

Tonight's episode of True Gametime Dialogue:

Dusty (during Lowe's commercial): [mutes TV] Shut up! There's nothing I want to see less of than white people shopping for home improvement products!

Mrs. Dusty: I thought you said before you hated those white-people-trying-to-buy-a-home shows.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Blogger is on the fritz, Plaschke's article about the All Star game makes sense, what's next, cats and dogs living together?

Josh S. said...

FOUL. Cats and dogs joke already made by Mr. C on page one.

Paul said...

Bartender I'll take a Schlichting!

Josh S. said...

(I only noticed because I make the cats and dogs joke every chance I get.)

Steve Sax said...

I'm sorry about this blogger lameness, fellow dudes.

Blame ubragg.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I thought the cats and dogs thing was a recurring joke. And I stand by it.

Josh S. said...

KCAL home run graphics are boss.

Dusty Baker said...

Blogger is a cruel mistress. I feel like writing a cranky old man letter to them just so I'd feel better about it.

Maybe GAARP can help me compose it.

Josh S. said...

Puh-thetic, JMart.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh. My. God. Johnson. Will. Face. Wood.

Dusty Baker said...

Also:

Mrs. Dusty: [Eating stadium peanuts] Peanuts are weird.

MDIL: You know what else is weird? Corn.
====
This is what happens when we have a somewhat comfortable lead.

Mr. Customer said...

@Paul

Both Customers were correct. My itchy trigger finger is the culprit.

Josh S. said...

10 Make dick joke
20 Go to 10

Steve Sax said...

oh yay, let's bring in Jonathan Broxton with a four-run lead. What could possibly go wrong???

Dusty Baker said...

Hilarious!!! (re Johnson and Wood)

This is the moment we've all been waiting for.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The only person that would make this moment even greater would be Dick Pole.

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S 9:56p: seriously. J Mart was walking back to the dugout before the Marlins' catcher had even caught the foul popup. At least pretend you care, Russell.

Josh S. said...

Blake is one oversliding mofo.

Paul said...

I am just giggling right now.

Dusty Baker said...

That Joyce steal was a carbon copy of the play earlier.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I guess Johnson got Wood.

Josh S. said...

That looked fair to me.

Paul said...

The Marlins call these west coast games "Late Night with the Fish".

Josh S. said...

RAFAEL FURCAL IS GOOD AT BASEBALL.

karen said...

DeScore

7-2 Good guys

Dusty Baker said...

Brox stopped throwing now, thank Ely.

Steve Sax said...

five run lead means broxton has stopped throwing.

whew!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

T-Slick to pitch the ninth.

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh

30 REM It never gets old, does it?

(not that kind of REM, but HT to Karina anyway)

karina said...

What is so special of Reed Johnson facing this Wood pitcher?

I'm sleepy...

Steve Sax said...

I really hate Cody Ross.

Josh S. said...

Kemp n' Dre having similar nights: 1 homer and 1 near miss each.

Paul said...

The Fish announcers read incomming emails the whole game. It is kind of like if we did the play by play.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That flyball reminds me, when was the last time Eric Collins called a game? Feels like it's been some time.

Steve Sax said...

JACKIE JOHNSON IS BACK ON KCAL 9!!!

Between this and the Mermaid photos, I'm having a great day

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

Both peanuts and corn are both kinda weird, when you think about it.

Steve Sax said...

DeWitt is out...did anyone else besides me notice he slid into home awkwardly?

Reminds me of the story I just mentioned in the Colletti post. I hope DeWitt isn't injured....

Josh S. said...

DeWitt looks peachy in the dugout.

karina said...

T-Slick, crossing fingers you make a good quick job

HT back to Mr C.

Paul said...

Hu is down also. Can GAARP play the infield?

Mr. Customer said...

You know what else is weird? Using "both" twice in a sentence.

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

I couldn't tell whether Joyce was, er, adjusting himself or favoring a leg/groin/hammy. But yeah, I noticed.

Dusty Baker said...

Hey Sax, have you posted anything on the main page about Colletti? If so, be sure to let us know about it.

;-)

Josh S. said...

We're gonna see Brox, kiddos.

Mr. Customer said...

Hate you, Cody.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Honeycutt mound-visit of death.

Paul said...

Uh oh. Someone call Miss Cleo and ask her if this ends well.

Fred's Brim said...

ugh

Mr. Customer said...

That's good.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

T-Slick is in a heap of trouble.

Mr. Customer said...

That's bad.

Fred's Brim said...

a gift from Paulino

Dusty Baker said...

Corn is indeed some weird shit. I grilled a lot of it over the weekend. Good, but weird.

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

crapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrapcrap

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So hear comes Broxton. Fantastic.

Fred's Brim said...

double ugh

Paul said...

Who ya gonna call? Marooone!!

I hate Florida.

Josh S. said...

OK, hold the damn phone...

What the fuck is so weird about corn and peanuts?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Tying run is on deck, so it's a save-situation.

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

for one thing, they make it out whole in yer poop. that's kind of weird.

Paul said...

Now a two minute commercial for values.com and you guys get Jackie Johnson. This is not fair.

Fred's Brim said...

cut
the
shit

please

Paul said...

Helms kind of looks like Will Ferrel.

Steve Sax said...

and now it's a save situation. come on, brox.

Steve Sax said...

two down

Paul said...

One more out and we make party!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hooray!

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

winwinwinwinwinwinwinwinwin

Josh S. said...

YIPPIE KAY AY MINI SIRLOIN BURGER!

Dusty Baker said...

HLACK's comment has us all laughing so hard we missed the last out.

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

thank you

gnite all - lets win a series against and NL East team tomorrow

karina said...

Dodgers win! (didn't want to go to bed before I was sure they win)

sweet dreams everyone!

Dusty Baker said...

MDIL weighs in on corn: the texture is weird, and the way it's wrapped is different, and the way if you cook it different ways and does different things and has different flavors. And the poop thing.

Steve Sax said...

PGT UP!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ditto what HLACK said (Jackie, not corn poop).

Mr. Customer said...

@Josh

I don't know what spurred the comment in la casa de Baker, but they're both a sort of odd sibling in their family.

Peanut = bean masquerading as a nut.
Corn = mutant grain that is freakishly huge in comparison to others.

In an unrelated note, I am also considered the odd sibling in my family.

Steve Sax said...

@Paul 10:19p: at least you don't have to sit through the Honda Mr. Opportunity commercial. It's almost not worth the Jackieness.
