*looks for brains in Dodger dugout**goes hungry*
I'm in center? I hope there are two or three cutoff guys between me and 2nd.
Didn't mean to insinuate you were a talented, yet petulant fuck who needs to get his head straight if he wants to advance his career, Josh.
Dittmore, though...he's a talented, yet petulant fuck who needs to get his head straight if he wants to advance his career.
Rained out BP. Hope they get the game in. Otherwise, I'llhave to go to Plan B. First, I'll need a Plan B, though.
Like I sang earlier, Don't Stop Believing!
Brains?Oh, rain. Never mind.
So, even Mother Nature is telling the Dodgers not to bother?
Mother Nature is PISSED...at Frank.
Broxton is officially out of the closer role, according to Dylan Hernandez.
Per Dylan H.:Torre said he will still use Broxton in close games; just wants to take him out of closing role until he gets his feet under him.On days Kuo isn't available, Dotel will close. Jansen could also be used.
On days when Dotel or Jansen aren't available, Torre will ask people in the front row of the Field level fans can get a ball 60 feet in a relatively straight line and will pinky swear not to throw meatballs to the home team.
Eric, are you saying there may be an ulterior motive to this contest?
This was passed on to me by another SoSG follower. Notice the URL http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/dodgers/2010/08/dodgers-hang-on-to-take-twoofthree-from-phillies-96.htmlJumped the gun a little?
It's all the LA Times' fault.
@DB: I just noticed "Keven, C."Bravo, sir.
Game starts at 4:35. I'm off at 5. I'm not even going to bother firing up Gameday Audio for those last 25 minutes.I'm a sad zombie. I'd cry if I still had eyes.
Josh S.,Does your monitor print out braille for you to read?
Glad you liked that Keven C, Josh. I just about wet me pants when it hit me.
@Mr. F: Yeah, it says Broxton is a bumpity-bumpin' pile of bump.
That's right, Pods. We may go down in flames, but if you get on base a million times between now and the end of the season, it will feel like a win to me.
We should be awarded a run every 5 times Pods gets a base hit plus a steal.
We should also get free runs for having a high ratio of players who wear their unis the right god damned way.
Attack of the LHWGs!
Dewey Beats Truman!!
Someone just set up a new Twitter account: @KuosLeftElbow
Beer status: Sioux City Sarsaparilla
Beer is nice.
Can we just all have a Chipper Jones circle jerk then get on with it?
I don't know what a circle jerk is, but since Dusty suggested it, I'm sure it's a good idea.
I have Stone IPA waiting for me at home.
"since Dusty suggested it, I'm sure it's a good idea"This philosophy will carry you far on life, Mr. F.
GET HOME SOON, Josh.
lets go braves.
JUST TALK ABOUT THE FUCKIN GAME, STEINER! I don't care about Cox(Bobby or otherwise) or Tim Hudson. Tell me what's going on in the damned game.
DB,If you think Steiner is bad, you should hear the way Collins has been going on about Cox, and balls. . .and strikes.
Surly factor: 3 after switching over to audio feed.
Collins and Lyons aren't done beating that dead horse called last night's debacle.
Collins is so bad he made me turn off the telly and listen to Steiner. That's bad!
I stopped for happy hour at Wingnuts in Costa Mesa. Had the chicken strips and 2 beers.Eased my surly factor to a 2.
Blake could've run the ball over to 1st himself and still beat Glaus.
Trivia answer: 1 is Walter Alston. 24 seasons (more?) with the Blue.
3 balls on the batter? Odd.
Hiro looking shaky. Don't have a good feeling about this.
IF THE DODGERS LOSE THIS GAME IT IS BECAUSE OF MATT KEMP!!!
Apathy factor +3, but I don't know what that means.
Nor do I care.
My god these are some Light-Hitting White Guys. It's like someone transplanted a scene from my back yard from 1979.
Epale everyone!Back in 2008, Fabiola's avatar brought some luck.@Rbnlaw are you still wearing the bracelet your daughter gave you?
Pods should thank me for sticking up for his ability to get on base.
These days,the way my beloved Dodgers are playing,I think I could play some MLB baseball,at least I'm going to take a walk now and then ;)
My older brother just taunted me by email.He must be having breakfast right now, thinking the best way to make fun of the Dodgers and me :(
karina,That's cruel! What team does your brother support?
We go to the 7th scoreless but with rain increasing. Boo!Time for Dos XX.
@karina:Yes I am. Had to trim it a little so it fits, but the blue and white is on the wrist.
@ Dusty 1:35 - are you sure you are not my department chair?
DB,Would that be 2 dos equis?
The Atlanta Braves...remember when there was a rivalry?it still exists between us, even though he moved to Australia.He called today and I refused to talk to him, I was too sad to discuss these upcoming games.:(
cant we just call it a tie?
nevermind.phils lose, lets go braves!!
are you bored,NicJ?
No tenure for you, Dittmore!
I was just about to type that we were having too many fly ball outs for my taste.
braves perfectly planning a 1 run win on a seven inning game.
Please, no rain, pleaseeeeeee.
i wouldn't say bored, indifferent. im just rooting against team i hate rather than rooting for a team i love.
im going to be mighty pissed if texas blows it again and lets the angels into the playoffs again.
@Josh S - How is the Stone IPA? I opted for a Boulevard Singlewide IPA (KC beer) tonight. Love IPAsOh, yeah. New definition of insanity: watching Dodgers on MLB Network two nights in a row and expecting a different result.
It would be funny to sip a Singlewide from one's doublewide, no?
I love lamp.
Thanks the Lord the White Sox are winning...
Let's go Nats!!!
@Dusty - Boulevard makes a Doublewide IPA as well, presumably for that very purpose.
@karina:I'll have my daughter make a black/white bracelet for the Sox.
i have to learn to type faster. or worry about punctuation less. i didn't even finish "time for kemp to jack one out of here" before he grounded out.
@Rbnlaw that's the sweetest thing this week! do you like the White Sox?
Whoa, Dittmore...the multiples have my head spinning.This is a KC brew you speak of? I'll have to be on the lookout for it if it has any sort of wider distro.
Are we making friendship bracelets now?
Come on, Gibby!
@karina:Might as well. My Blue team sucks right now. Plus, I like Ozzie.
why the delay?
^ I barely got that comment in before the out. Wooo...need to start commenting monosyllabically.
DB,My daughters love making them. Mine is blue and white. The next one will be black/white for the Sox.Go Soxos de Blanco.
Ozzie rocks!besides when he was playing in winter baseball, he was the franchise player of a great team.
@KarinaBelliard had to finish up the fudge brownie he was eating before stepping into the box.
"Go Soxos de Blanco", I like that very much!
Fizzle my nizzle.
Man...can we do a quick round of AC just to relieve the game monotony?
I don't get these professional players who can't keep their ideal weight.They have an army of people to help them if theyhave a slow metabolism or whatever.Speaking of the White Sox, it infuriates me every time I see Andruw Jones. I'm sure I'm paying some karma...
@Steve D.: I'm getting a nice buzz halfway through the first one and it's tasty too. Thumbs up!
@Dusty - You should be able to get Boulevard anywhere in AR. Doublewide IPA only comes in 22 oz. bottles.
@Josh S. - I'll look for it next time I'm on West Coast. This is geeky, but I keep a note of favorite IPAs in Evernote. This way I know what to look for when I travel.Since LAD is playing in Atlanta, I recommend Sweetwater IPA or Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale when visiting the Peach State.
I AM PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE UPTICK IN PODSEDNIK'S OBP.
lead off single! let's go Dodgers!
Awesome,Pods caught stealing.
What just happened?
14 shutouts. Same number of dead in AC.
I almost typed "shitouts," which is also appropriate.
Step one of Operation: Phuck the Phillies is complete!
@Josh can you be responsible to increase EVERYONE'S OBP?this morning I asked for something to believe,thanks Hiro.
That's a Herculean task. As with Pods, I'll need someone to come in here and mindlessly bash all the players first.
our draft spot for next year just keeps getting better.Too bad we will waste it anyways.
god damn padres, and giants.
PGT up (yawn!)
@Professor"Doublewide IPA only comes in 22 oz. bottles."Why would anyone ever want to buy beer in smaller bottles?
Also @ the Professor:Keeping a note of one's favorite IPAs in Evernote is not geeky. Held in high regard!
Note to self: Get Evernote.If I had Evernote, I would be able to better keep up with notes to self.#chickenortheegg
