Sergio said...

absolutely terrible letter.

Dusty Baker said...

Nice work, Orel!

Mr. Customer said...

Beer:30!

I'll "see" all you deviants when I get home.

dodgerdoll said...

Feels so good to be back! I can't wait for this game to start so I can stop watching the Gnats.

Dusty Baker said...

Gnats v Nats

Go Nats!

dodgerdoll said...

That game is so boring. If the giants sucked any more they'd have Garrett Anderson playing for them.

Dusty Baker said...

Gnats getting smoked 8-1. Cain chased in 7th.

Dusty Baker said...

Where my dogs at?

NicJ said...

Sorry I'm late, Lebron James' massive ego was blocking the entrance.

NicJ said...

quite the dilemma on who to root for in the COL/SD series. SD is in first but COL is getting hot and starting to worry me.

Dusty Baker said...

Easy Nic. We root for extra innings, lots of nagging injuries, fights that lead to suspensions and ill will, and general poor play from both teams. And split series.

karen said...

Well said Dusty

Neeebs said...

Neeebs in da stadium tonight. Loge by foul ball alley. Anyone in the house?

Spanky said...

Here Here. I like the way you think Dusty

dodgerdoll said...

I could not have said it better Dusty.

Dusty Baker said...

Predictable - I usually miss Neeebs by one game in a home series. We'll be in the Yard tomorrow.

Neeebs said...

Kings in the stadium. Dustin Brown and Matt Greene

Neeebs said...

Oh, and three of the Kings' Ice Girls are here too!

Fred's Brim said...

howdy yall

Fun Fact: Takashi Saito still throws in the low-to-mid 90s

Fred's Brim said...

@Neeebs are Dustin Brown and Matt Greene doing on a kinky date with the ice girls?

Fred's Brim said...

-"doing"

Josh S. said...

Low to mid-90s is also the number of times Saito hurts himself per season.

Dusty Baker said...

Lee hitting. 230? Wow. Talk about tailing off.

I realize this means he will go 4-4 w 2 HR tonight.

Fred's Brim said...

I forgot it was Chad going tonight. His starts usually make me so mad. I don't want any of that tonight

Dusty Baker said...

GAARP-free start. Feels good.

Fred's Brim said...

free-n-easy, sans GAARP

Fred's Brim said...

was that a Jesse Orosco jersey on the crowd?

NicJ said...

haha lady in the kings jersey was totally nailed by that line drive by raffy.

Its a ball try to catch it.

Fred's Brim said...

"in"

FB cannot type tonight

Dusty Baker said...

Raffy almost lifted that one out. Love it. Much better than run-slap-bunt-out to open the game.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

I thought it was an Orosco jersey! Either that, or it was a personalized jersey.

dodgerdoll said...

The MLB network keeps showing Bills with the teaser that says "Last Start With Their Current Team?"

Dusty Baker said...

But not from you, E. You need to get deep in that count before a short popup.

NicJ said...

I remember when Dre used to have really long at bats fouling of pitch after pitch.

Now its usually trying to jump on the first fastball.

NicJ said...

Why would we trade Bills? Lee is gone and nobody else is worth that.

I wish they would have used GA in that clip instead of bills.

Fred's Brim said...

Arthur Rhodes has hit the skids since being named to the All-Star team. 0 outs, 3 runs and a loss the other night, 0 outs 2 runs and a loss tonight to complete a total gag-job by the Reds tonight

Dusty Baker said...

This little Byrd fucker is annoying me.

Fred's Brim said...

that's a strike, blue

dodgerdoll said...

Someone was telling me that they were trying to go after Grenkie but I don't know how much truth there is to that.

Fred's Brim said...

*anger rising*

Fred's Brim said...

Chad is flying way open

Dusty Baker said...

This is a crazy, silly rumor time of year. Why would we trade one SP for another and still need, arguably, two more? Granted, it could be an ace, and so it could be viewed as a net gain, but I would not want us to pull the trigger on that. We should be adding, not subtracting or staying roughly even.

dodgerdoll said...

Oh my beard, already we're already walking the yard.

NicJ said...

the royals arent going to give up greinkeikeikeikeeee. He is cheap and still under control for a while. Not to mention their best pitcher.

Chad is not giving us a nice going away present.

Dusty Baker said...

Trade Bills! Trade Bills!

Fred's Brim said...

Denny Terrio with the gift swing on ball 4

dodgerdoll said...

No freaking joke.

Dusty Baker said...

We're gonna need a bigger ice chest.

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, koyioyoieyie. But this just sets up the Lilly's 2 rbi double

NicJ said...

alright maybe we dont have the worst hitting #55 catcher in the league.

Fred's Brim said...

what was wrong with that one?

dodgerdoll said...

Bout time Bills. If he can't strike out Lilly at least then I give up.

Fred's Brim said...

Fresno/giants/Will Clark

what other Lilly facts can you tell me to make me hate him more?

karen said...

Out of that inning cheap enough

Dusty Baker said...

Uncle Charlie just molested Ted Lilly for the K.

dodgerdoll said...

4-5 for the rocks in the middle of the 4th.

Fred's Brim said...

Pods/Rox off to a nice burn-all-of-our-pitchers-in-game-1 start

NicJ said...

Yeah it always bothers me a little that Kershaw wears 22 because Clark was his favorite player growing up. That was Rangers Clark so i'll let it slide.

NicJ said...

One of these days we are going to actually score some runs off Lily.

Dusty Baker said...

Liked how Bills seemed to get pissed off after getting in the jam then finish the inning strong.

Dusty Baker said...

FJL!

Fred's Brim said...

"he looks so intense at the plate"

no, he just saw Kevin Mitchell do some blow and eat a goat in the clubhouse

Steve Sax said...

Hey fans! Have all of you registered for SoSG Fest 2010 yet?

dodgerdoll said...

Atta beard! Vin just said that Ted Lilly's real name is Theodore Roosevelt Lilly.

Fred's Brim said...

YES!!!

Steve Sax said...

Boooooooooom martin!

NicJ said...

JMART IS THE BEST HITTING #55 CATCHER IN THE LEAGUE!!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

ooof that was a MEAT BALL

Dusty Baker said...

Karina, you must be so proud of your son!!!

karen said...

I like Ted Lilly...He saved the dog and just gave up a HR to Karina's son

Mr. Customer said...

Holy crap, did that just happen?

Josh S. said...

I TOTALLY CALLED IT!

(in my head)

MR. F said...

Yayyyyyy

Dusty Baker said...

"...then Russell jacks one out..." -Vinny

I like when he uses the street vernacular sometimes instead of his usual Mr. Burns-speak.

dodgerdoll said...

Be still my beating heart! I take back all the crap I've said about Martin.

Fred's Brim said...

sorry Kevin, that was uncalled for. I was just venting some VaGiants hate and you were in the way. But I don't condone the brutal killing of cats, just to be clear.

Steve Sax said...

How awesome would it be if Russell got his groove back?

Dusty Baker said...

Just noted that "Atta beard!" comment. Nice.

Fred's Brim said...

dodgerdoll is the Albert Pujols of using smurphing the word Beard!

Dusty Baker said...

SoSG Fest 2010 contest: Millions will enter; hundreds will win!

Just like the old Honeycombs commercial when I was but a wee lad.

dodgerdoll said...

Let's see if bills can rebound here.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm Smurfin' not rehearsin' gettin' live ya'll!

Fred's Brim said...

Honeycomb's big, yeah yeah yeah,
It's not small, no no no

also:
Sandoval's big, yeah yeah yeah
It's not small, no no no

Spanky said...

Damn! Martin with the homer.

I know I'm late but indulge me.

Dusty Baker said...

I wanted a license plate with my name on it from Honeycombs so bad, but they did not offer "Kyle." Now every Tom, Dick, and Harry is named Kyle.

Dusty Baker said...

ps- We need more Bort license plates!

Fred's Brim said...

buh buh buh booty!

Dusty Baker said...

It's all good, Spanky. Let it all out!

dodgerdoll said...

@Dusty & FB-you guys are too kind. *takes a bow*

Fred's Brim said...

those were pretty cool, but we never had Honeycombs :/

Spanky said...

Where was the Honeycomb Hideout?

Fred's Brim said...

I think Aramis is fixable, but I would pay alot to find out if he is

Dusty Baker said...

Jesus jumped up shit on a stick.

NicJ said...

we are probably going to have to score more runs.

Fred's Brim said...

fudge

I am tired of Byrd. He's know's he's not really this good

karen said...

How are your anger issues doing about now FB?

Dusty Baker said...

Isn't Byrd supposed to be lying in state in the Capitol rotunda these days?

Fred's Brim said...

nibble nibble nibble

Dusty Baker said...

Grand slam coming up.

Fred's Brim said...

not great, karen, not great

Josh S. said...

59 pitches already? Christ.

dodgerdoll said...

There are 2 freaking outs. It can't be this hard to get one more out.

karen said...

Bills heard the rumors and he doesn't want to go

Josh S. said...

Control! You must learn controoolll!

dodgerdoll said...

SD & CO are tied 5-5 now.

Spanky said...

Fontenot,Theriot es the same, no?

Steve Sax said...

We love you Fontenot!

Dusty Baker said...

Anyone get hurt yet in that game, Dodgerdoll?

Josh S. said...

Fontenope!

dodgerdoll said...

Not that I'm aware of Dusty. I'll let you know if someone does.

dodgerdoll said...

7-5 for SD now.

Fred's Brim said...

At-bats you don't want to miss: Raffy, right now

karen said...

Raffy's face should be on money!

Spanky said...

MoFo is Hot!

NicJ said...

what the hell was lily doing there?

Fred's Brim said...

ooh baby Jamey is a scrappy mofo

Steve Sax said...

Nice leadoff double for Raffy!

Also, fwiw, I love the Honeycomb.

Spanky said...

Ackbar always in the mix it seems

Fred's Brim said...

I thought Raffy might sneak home on that

Josh S. said...

YAAAAYYYY!!!

Fred's Brim said...

yes! attaboy Dre

NicJ said...

FonteD'oh

Steve Sax said...

Yay Dodgers! 4-2!

Dusty Baker said...

Big big bite.

Josh S. said...

Any particular reason Carroll is batting second (even though it's kind of working) instead of in DeWitt's normal spot of 8th?

MR. F said...

Come on Bison.

dodgerdoll said...

Dewitt sucks?

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp go boom!

karen said...

BISON!!!

Spanky said...

Fuck yeah!!!!!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Matty go BONK!

NicJ said...

NO MERCY!!!

MR. F said...

Bison Concentration!

dodgerdoll said...

BISOOONN!!

Mr. Customer said...

I see we have a pitcher's duel tonight.

Fred's Brim said...

keep pounding this giant-lover

Spanky said...

No Outs PeePs

Fred's Brim said...

before tonight, FJL was tied for 3rd in NL hits with 100

NicJ said...

stupid MSB

Dusty Baker said...

Sumbitch. Almost blooped over that scrawny lil fucker's head.

Spanky said...

Fontefuck

karen said...

Mary Hart in the house

Dusty Baker said...

Beard does his job.

Fred's Brim said...

excellent work, Casey!

NicJ said...

SAC RUN!!

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax circa 7:42
If I would have been considered, I would have loved to attend the fest.

will there be a velvet rope and a bouncer with a guest list keeping non-invitees out?

dodgerdoll said...

The beard never fails.

Fred's Brim said...

Matty getting his SB percentage up

Spanky said...

That's alright That's okay. Another quallude,She'll love me in the morning.


Beer Run!

Fred's Brim said...

you can tell Vin is having trouble with Lilly and all of the fly balls. He's usually very calm with the easy fly balls, but tonight it seems like he's anticipating the home run

dodgerdoll said...

SD is getting in their bullpen in the top of the 6th.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spanky

Don't run with beer! Each drop is precious.

dodgerdoll said...

So is CO.

Dusty Baker said...

SIt down, 'lil flower.

Fred's Brim said...

Tinker to Evers to Chance

didn't they only play together for a season or so?

Dusty Baker said...

Cool, or no?

Dusty Baker said...

FB all over the trivia.

Dusty Baker said...

Bills sweatin' like Battletoad. And it's an unseasonably cool night here in LA.

Fred's Brim said...

*anger subsiding*

NicJ said...

Thats what we can look forward to when the Red Sox throw a ton of cash at Ethier when he is up for free agency.

MR. F said...

Yay. Easy inning.

NicJ said...

Dusty Baker said...

EXACTLY, Nic.

Fred's Brim said...

I heard you trip balls if you lick Battletoad sweat

dodgerdoll said...

It's a Christmas miracle! No walks!

karen said...

Dusty...No

Dusty Baker said...

Tomorrow is fan photo day on the field before the game. I'm going to try to lick Battletoad and see if I can achieve total consciousness.

Fred's Brim said...

Lilly pitching like he doesn't want to be a Met

Fred's Brim said...

maybe you will see the space coyote!

dodgerdoll said...

No one wants to be a Met.

Dusty Baker said...

@FB

Would YOU want to be a Met??

Dusty Baker said...

Vinny reading us baseball poetry. What a beautiful way to enjoy a summer's eve.

Fred's Brim said...

thank you Vinny!
I love you

and then the "furniture" line! awesome!

Fred's Brim said...

haha his Raffy almost came out of his helmet on that one

Fred's Brim said...

everything I do in life is to avoid being a Met, and to get a little booty, buh buh booty

Fred's Brim said...

i am glad he's our MSB.

Fred's Brim said...

get the feeling, Dre

dodgerdoll said...

Oh great. Steiner is gonna talk to Ned in the sixth. Just who I wanted to hear from.

Dusty Baker said...

E almost stayed back on that curve long enough to do some damage.

Fred's Brim said...

that'll work!

Dusty Baker said...

Then he did exactly the same thing and singled and drive in a run. There's our All-Star!

Dusty Baker said...

@Dodgerdoll

Who did you not want to hear - Steiner or Ned? Or both?

dodgerdoll said...

And that's why we love him.

dodgerdoll said...

I don't want to hear Ned. Not that i care for Steiner either.

Dusty Baker said...

7-2 up in dis bish at the end of 4. I have time to go to the bathroom and get another beer without worrying too much.

(And no, I don't keep the beer in the bathroom.)

Spanky said...

@ 8:17 Dusty
Ha Ha! If You would see a pic of Me and add the word run, Beer would NOT be in danger.

Fred's Brim said...

@DB not even your stash in the top shelf of the toilet?

where do you keep your emergency earthquake beer?

Fred's Brim said...

keep throwing strikes, Chadley

walks are not your friend

NicJ said...

gotta get out of the inning to get a win, Chad.

Fred's Brim said...

Chad Cordero of the Mariners is trying to work the Flat Breezy magic. He's 0-1 with a 5.19 era in 8 game

Dusty Baker said...

@FB That top shelf reference was cracking me up this morning.

As for emergency earthquake beer, there's a BevMo right down the way. I would just start looting. It's how we do it in LA.

NicJ said...

Cordero plays for the Mariners now? Or better yet, Cordero still plays baseball?

Dusty Baker said...

Mariners still have a team?

Spanky said...

C'mon! Lord of the Thighs

Dusty Baker said...

8-5 Pod Rays

Dusty Baker said...

RB-

Wherever you are in TX, big ups to ya! Hope the Shiner is going down smoothly.

Mr. Customer said...

Glad the bully got a rest last night.

NicJ said...

The mariners just traded their team to Texas.

Isnt it funny that the Yanks get screwed and lose out on a player to a smallish market team.

Also, isnt it sad that the team with less money than us is wheeling and dealing.
