I thought that was Ringo Starr

Mr. Customer said...

Kenley Jansen recalled, Tattooed Lady sent packing, per the twitterverse.

Josh S. said...

Yay! That means Jansen's not getting traded! (I think.)

MR. F said...

Who's the Tattooed Lady? Rihanna isn't known for tattoos is she?

Just wishful thinking... where would I be without it?

rbnlaw said...

Justin Miller is either the Tattooed Lady or the Tattooed Love Boy.

rbnlaw said...

Or as I liked to call Miller, Mr. Effective.
As in, "He's so effective in getting those runs for the other team."

MR. F said...

I don't get the reference.

Dusty Baker said...

Let's not disrespect Miller too much. He's True Blue.

Josh S. said...

Kenley Jansen's middle name is Geronimo.

rbnlaw said...

Miller has to wear long sleeves when he pitches to cover his arms which, in turn, are covered with tattoos.

No truth to the rumor of Ronaldhino coming to the Galaxy. Wondered where they'd put him anyway.

MR. F said...

I remember that part about Miller. But why is he called "Lady"?

Mr. Customer said...

@MR.F

As in, "Come see the Freak Show! Marvel at the seven-legged cow, wolf boy, and tattooed lady."

Josh S. said...

So, the bullpen is now:

Broxton (closer)
Kuo (set-up)
Weaver (long man)
Taschner (LOOGY)
Schlichting (as needed)
McDonald (as needed)
Sherrill (mop up)
Jansen (blogger darling)
Monasterios (spot starter)

I can live with that for now. Taschner's a MASSIVE question mark, and one of Jansen, McDonald and Schlichting needs to step up and take the load off of Kuo, but this is definitely workable.

Josh S. said...

And supposedly they're doing everything they can to convince Sherrill to go to AAA.

Neeebs said...

Cut the damn umbilical chord on GS for god's sake.

"tattooed love boy" brings back oh so fond memories of high school. Nice pull RBN.

MR. F said...

At this point I'm just nodding my head like I know what you guys are talking about =X

Dusty Baker said...

They just finished doing everything they could to convince Bellisario to go to AA.

Dusty Baker said...

Would someone please explain why obtaining Dan Haren is a good move for any team needing a SP? Forget contract stuff, just...why do they think he's any good? The guy has been mediocre at best. Unless they want him to hit, I guess. If he goes to Yankees, wouldn't it be Javy Vasquez all over again?

Neeebs said...

Mr. F, that's why we love you.

After all the obscure references you just go with it.

All hail Fanerman!

(FWIW, Tattooed Love Boy is an old Pretenders song. Chrissy Hynde at her best.)

Dusty Baker said...

@ Neeebs

Come to think of it, why didn't we just call Miller "Chrissy Hynde"?

cc: all

rbnlaw said...

@Neeebs:
That song has one of the best riffs and Bo Diddly beats of its time.

. . .and he showed me what that hole was for.

rbnlaw said...

DB,
Good call. Unfortunately a lot like one of those things you should have said, then think of it in the car on the way home.

A "D'oh" moment.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Haren has been mediocre this year, but over the three years before this one, he's got a combined ERA+ of 141. He can be very good.

Spanky said...

George Michael Fool. He looks like George Michael HA HA!!

Dusty Baker said...

@RB

I guess that's why they call it a "way homer."

Actually, in the car on the way home, I usually get a rundown of all the things I SHOULDN'T have said.

@Rbnlaw 3:15 PM Berlusconi said on the first training of the AC Milan for the upcoming season three things in this order:

1) New Milan coach has the looks of a Hollywood star

2) He trusts the strategies of said new coach

3) The only uniform Ronaldihno will be wearing for a while is the Rossonero.
