Josh S. said...

The return of AUSMUSTERIOS!

Josh S. said...

From a geometry standpoint, I like this lineup.

Paul said...

I think our chances are the same as successfully nagivating an asteroid field.

MR.F said...

You mean approximately three thousand, seven hundred and twenty to one?

Josh S. said...

Always tell me the evens!

Nostradamus said...

Direct PGT to GT transition!

Josh S. said...

For the record, a better curved lineup would be:

Podsednik
Theriot
Ethier
Loney
Kemp
Blake
Ausmus
Carroll
Belisario

(Beli would get the start since he's the only pitcher with a nine-letter last name.)

Josh S. said...

Hmmm...Carroll's Ls screw everything up.

QuadSevens said...

I wonder if the bar at DCA will show the game.

Nostradamus said...

Kemp's M not helping, either.

karina said...

@Josh how about some scrambling?

Podsednik
Theriot
Loney
Ethier
Blake
Kemp
Carroll
Ausmus
Belisario

or this:

Podsednik

Ethier
Blake
Kemp
Carroll
Theriot
Belisario

Josh S. said...

I'm more worried about Kemp's K, Mr. C.

HEY-O!

Josh S. said...

I would say that this thread is evidence that we are extremely nerdy, but...

...every thread is evidence that we are extremely nerdy.

karina said...

@Josh I just heard on my mind the Seinfeld bass line

Kyle Baker said...

God dammit. I wondered where people were. I figured we weren't going to get a GT and could just go PGT>pre-GT>GT all in one space.

Paul: I'm your daddy

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Get ready for a shitstorm of epic proportions on Twitter.

RT @benmaller: Joe Torre on crowded outfield plans: "Scott Podsednik will play some centerfield. Manny won't play everyday." #Dodgers #MLB

rbnlaw said...

Prost!!!

Yoga? check
Pool? check
Beer? Hell yes with fucking check.

Let's beat some Red ass. Or let's beat a redass. I really don't care either way.

Steve Sax said...

This may be the most concave lineup we've fielded all year.

Kyle Baker said...

Podsednik
Belisario
Ausmus
Theriot
Carroll
Loney
Ethier
Blake
Kemp

Nostradamus said...

I've been trying to anagram the lineup to something inappropriate, but we have to many players with names that start with "B"

rbnlaw said...

Oh, and this:
FUCK THE FUCKING GIANTS, THOSE BUNCH OF FUCKS.

rbnlaw said...

back to the pool.

Steve Sax said...

Sorry for missing posts today, guys. That was my fault!

karina said...

@Mr LASF now we got our power hitter from the bench :)

Kyle Baker said...

7777-

Which bar at DCA?

karina said...

@Steve Sax it's ok, we don't need new posts to congregate

Nostradamus said...

@Sax

No worries! We're resourceful.

Kyle Baker said...

Mr C said "I've been trying to anagram the lineup to something inappropriate...."

I've been working on something for months, but there are too few vowels to work with, unless anyone knows any Serbic profanity.

Thank god we do't have Kent Hrbek on our squad.

Kyle Baker said...

^I meant to say I was working on word play not necessarily anagrams, e.g., lining up first or last names to make curse words.

These things are important to me.

Josh S. said...

Podsednik as a Dodger:
.302/.368/.360/.729 (16 Ks, .371 BAbip)

Kemp, same time frame:
.194/.257/.299/.555 (20 Ks, .239 BAbip)

See, I can lick a stat or two also.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kindesdop 7
Toireht 4
Reihte 9
Yenol 3
Pmek 8
Ekalb 5
Llorrac 6
Sumsua 2

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

SOIRETSANOM IS THE FUTURE OF THIS ORGANIZATION

Kyle Baker said...

@Karina from the 8/19 PGT

"If it wasn't for politics and street crime, this could be a great country to be"

Yeah, same here in the states.

Josh S. said...

KINDESDOP SKCUS!

Kyle Baker said...

I was just going over some old GT notes. I'd like to go ahead and answer my own question posed in a limerick:


There once was a team in L.A.,
That went 22-8 in May.
Before that, April stank.
In July, the team sank.
Will August just cause more dismay?

Yes.

Nostradamus said...

Llorrac is a great super-villain name.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Pmek is so out of place.

Kyle Baker said...

It's not really all that fun to make nosnhoj jokes.

Steve Sax said...

@Mr LA SF 4:50p: looks like initials anagram to KRYPTLESS, no?

That explains all the zombies walking around here. (And on the field, too.)

Kyle Baker said...

"I'm the Llorrac! I speak for the trees!"

Nostradamus said...

Ah...

It's a shame, because Zerimar is pretty fantastic, too.

Steve Sax said...

Today's real lineup anagrams to tackle bmp

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I want Snobbig to get more at bats. Same for Ortsac and Drailleb.

Nostradamus said...

@Sax

Can't we put Breezy in the outfield for one play just to get Tackle MSB?

Kyle Baker said...

good thing yelsgnillib already pitched in this rotation and that zciweiktneim is long gone.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

STOOPID ERROT

Nostradamus said...

@dusty

"nosnhoj"

There's a Shane Victorino joke in there somewhere.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ouk is our closer for now, but it soon might be Notxorb or Letod. And we should hope to not see Llirrehs enter the game.

Kyle Baker said...

Headline is just wrong:

"USC Trojans women's soccer team ready to get back on top. http://es.pn/buT1AY"

spank said...

I'm just casually checking in.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

And that link doesn't help matters either.

spank said...

.cixelsyd em edam sah daerht siht gnidaeR

Kyle Baker said...

"USC soccer ready to rise again"

Oh lord. Did we write these ledes?

spank said...

USC SUCKS!!

It's all about Cal Poly Pomona FOOLS!

Kyle Baker said...

Left Field wall at DS - 1

Jason Bay - zip


Bay done for season (concussion). That's what he gets for catching that fucking ball.

spank said...

I thought CarGo caught the ball? Is he still alive? And what's with the questions?

Kyle Baker said...

Jason Bay, not CarGo. But fuck him, too. (sorry Karina, it's sports not personal)

rbnlaw said...

I was taking Yenol for my knee pain.

Heading to 7-11 for beer and ice. Who needs a Slurpee?

spank said...

Time for some Chinese........Food.

Don't call out the Kat,Dusty. She's bad news.

Kyle Baker said...

@RBN

THey make beer slurpees? Cool!

Kyle Baker said...

Commute>beer store>sofa

Check y'all at GT.

Josh S. said...

@Mr. C: I worry about running a lineup of supervillains out there since we're facing Batman tonight.

karina said...

@Josh said "I would say that this thread is evidence that we are extremely nerdy, but...

...every thread is evidence that we are extremely nerdy"

I read something along with the lines "Facebook is for the people you went to school with,Tumblr is for the people you wished they were your classmates in school and Twitter is the people who would have made you to fail every course"

What would be this place,then?in the very highly hypothetical scenario we all had the same age and lived nearby each other?

Nostradamus said...

@josh

There is a certain Arkham Assylum thing going on. If we are foiled by Batman, at least it screws the cardinals.

karina said...

I know I'd like Mr C to be my sidekick and to be my partner in every group assignment,even if I had to drag him from Dusty and Josh.Those three I would have kicked a lot under the table.

I'd have made some of the Mr LASF's homework so he talked me about baseball (fact,I spent a whole lot of my teenage years "helping"jocks)

I would have convinced Paul and Mr F to forge our IDs so we could watch bands around.

I'd have begged Eric Karros to explain me math and physics (I suspect Sax would be good in that,too)

Orel would be the one whom I asked for advice.

I could do this on and on...

Orel said...

Karina, I advise you to keep being the sweetheart you are.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: when did Jason Bay hit the DS wall? I don't recall this...

Steve Sax said...

@Karina: Orel, EK, and I have been fighting over you for years now. Our question is, which one gets to take you to the prom?

NicJ said...

So its 90's night at Dodger Stadium.Huh?
Yeah that really a decade i want to relive as a dodger fan. All those ROY and no playoff wins.

NicJ said...

aunt becky is still pretty hot.

spank said...

Lost a comment in the conflicting edit continuum

More Later

NicJ said...

was cueto actually wearing spikes? i know a lot of pitchers wear molded cleats rather than the spikes.

spank said...

In other news,

I want to relive the horrible trades the dodgers made in the 90's so my surliness can reach EPIC proportions.

karina said...

@Orel I'll take that advice

@Steve Sax dunno,hmmmm. Who's the best dancer?who wants to dance all night long?

karina said...

@NicJ we had RAUUUUUUUUUL those days

@Spanky isn't it enough with the 2010 Dodgers?

Kyle Baker said...

@Karina

I thought you broke up w Sax after Middle School?

Plus, I'm guessing that neither is that much into dancing all night long.

Kyle Baker said...

"Those three I would have kicked a lot under the table."

That's a great line.

Commute achieved.

Kyle Baker said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Neeebs (The Original) said...

@Karina:

You want me to interview them and give them the third degree.

@Neeebs:

WTF are you doing still sitting at the office at 7:00pm on a Friday night. Go home already.

@self: Yes sir.

Josh S. said...

Oh hey, ballgame.

Kyle Baker said...

Anyone have ATT Uverse? If so, MLB Network on it yet?

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOOO!

NicJ said...

if monasterios is the future of the organization we might be fucked.

Kyle Baker said...

I don't even think Monster Cheerios is the current of this organization.

Kyle Baker said...

I saw Ely's recent stats earlier this evening. Wow! That's a shitty ERA.

spank said...

Didn't even leave a footprint in the past

Kyle Baker said...

He's just kinda soggy cereal these days.

karen said...

Hi Everyone!!

Over 90 comments at game time, you all have been busy!

Kyle Baker said...

Brewers up 8-6 late.

Jints are winning, though.

Kyle Baker said...

@Karen

"Busy" might not be the best word to describe us this afternoon. Maybe prolific or verbose.

NicJ said...

dont see monny blow guys away too often.

NicJ said...

oh come on blue.

INSIDE CORNER!!!

spank said...

Oh Boy!

Kyle Baker said...

MONASTERIOS IS THE FUTURE OF THE NEXT 5 INNINGS!

karen said...

Mono K's his way out of trouble!!

spank said...

DEFEAT IS THE FUTURE OF THE ORGANIZATION THE 4 INNINGS AFTER THAT

spank said...

Come on Dre.

NicJ said...

aint that a bitch.

spank said...

Atleast he hit it hard

Josh S. said...

HOLY SHIT THEY MADE AN ASSASSIN'S CIRCLE VIDEO GAME

NicJ said...

pirates just clinched their 18 straight losing season.

so at least we arent at that point, yet.

spank said...

That is quite a streak there nic. I think only the clippers have been as horrible. Maybe the Lions Too.

spank said...

KKKK

NicJ said...

what the hell? 4 K's but monny is going to be gassed by the 4th inning.

Kyle Baker said...

My arm is tired just watching him.

I'm going to have to switch to my non-beer arm.

Josh S. said...

Ugh. Homer bugs me. He never got a proper comeuppance for fucking up Manny's hand.

NicJ said...

ah yes, the hand. i had forgotten.

NicJ said...

fuck it, lets just start a brawl.

Kyle Baker said...

Let the fuckin pitcher get a fuckin hit and that's what fuckin happens.

Kyle Baker said...

Fight, fight, fight, fight!

NicJ said...

looks like the ol winning streak might end tonight. Gonna see a ton of dodger bullpen.

Kyle Baker said...

^ I mean that in a brawl sense, not a rally sense.

NicJ said...

why the hell does Jordan have a hitler stache on that hanes commercial?

Paul said...

So whose hand do we fuck up for payback? Ruin our 09 we will ruin your 10 cause we are ruined!!

Paul said...

If anyone can bring that back for white guys to try Jordan can.

NicJ said...

i wouldnt mind slamming Votto's hand in a car door.

karen said...

Why is Matt Kemp just now getting around to doing the extra pre-game work? He should have been out there in May.

Paul said...

If want the Dodgers to be like zombies. Already dead but causing havoc for the living.

Of course zombies are slow and stupid but fun to watch.

NicJ said...

to be fair, i have heard Kemp usually always does early work at the stadium. Kemp is sucking this year, but i feel bad piling on.

I bet Bills loves it though.

karina said...

@karen a professional baseball player shouldn't stop "pre-game" work from february-october,unless he's injured

karina said...

@Dusty Baker nah,he would have broken MY heart

@Neeebs what does it mean "third degree"?don't scare them, could you think of better dates for prom?

Steve Sax said...

Playing with my father's iPad. Good times!

Josh S. said...

"Slow and stupid, but fun to watch."

This is MY town!

karina said...

Ausmus singles!

Josh S. said...

Vin talking about Ausmus' future as a manager.

Didn't we win the game he "managed" last year?

Kyle Baker said...

That's Sax. He's a heart breaker and a home wrecker. Still can't picture him dancing the night away, though.

NicJ said...

nice last chance bunt monny!!

spank said...

That was a nice bunt actually

Kyle Baker said...

@Karina

Here's news on your Sax rebound relationship:

Carlos Gonzales took BP. Feels better but won't likely play until Sunday if at all this wkend. Xray expected. No DL #rockies

Nostradamus said...

@sax

Ain't it great?

Kyle Baker said...

I have iPad envy.

karen said...

Damn

NicJ said...

Bastard Podsednik!!!

Go back to the dugout and think about what you did while i sit on my couch and think of your beautiful wife.

NicJ said...

dodgertalk callers rejoice!!!

SQUUUEEEEEZZZZZZZEEEEEE

Josh S. said...

That could have been AWFUL.

karen said...

Yes, Yes, Yes!!!

spank said...

Oh Snap!

karina said...

I'll take this!

karina said...

I <3 squezees

Kyle Baker said...

Oh shit, I forgot I was a few minutes behind on the DVR due to walking Frankie. It sounds vaguely good based on what you guys just typed.

spank said...

KKemped by 'Dre

Kyle Baker said...

Stat-licking Twitterers are lying low tonight.

Wait, maybe that's because I mostly unfollowed. #smallsamplesize

karina said...

@Dusty Baker what rebound?I'm still crying over him ;)

karina said...

What's the fuss about Pods wife?it keeps popping up everywhere

Kyle Baker said...

@Karina

Exactly. Perfect time for a rebound just to get you out of the house and off the Regional Drafts.

NicJ said...

http://bit.ly/b0qJcO

there you go karina. she has some clothes on in that one.

NicJ said...

nice one monny.

Kyle Baker said...

Beer status: 24oz Red Stripe w/ Dos XX backup

Surly factor: 2.5

NicJ said...

CARLOS MONASTERIOS IS THE FUTURE OF THE ALBUQUERQUE ISOTOPES!!!!!

Kyle Baker said...

Skinny ole skank

NicJ said...

brandon phillips hits near .500 in DS. So he is due for an out.

Kyle Baker said...

Stick dat ass back in, Phiilips. It wasn't that inside.

NicJ said...

nevermind.

NicJ said...

i dont think we are going to be able to break out four more squeeze plays to take the lead.

NicJ said...

or three rather, either way.

Kyle Baker said...

It looks like Jayson Werth raped a gazelle:

http://tinyurl.com/2dc9qjl

spank said...

I was all trying to look for Scotty Pods puta I didn't see the reds score.

Belated: BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Kyle Baker said...

Surly factor: 3 and rising

Kyle Baker said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! noted, Spank.

Like you said earlier, casual means stalking women (online counts) and drinking beer.

Kyle Baker said...

Son of a bunch of things I shouldn't type.

karina said...

@NicJ googled her,girl speaks Japanese.She makes me like an underachiever.Are you sure she's for real?

In the other hand,Dusty gives hope to the plain Janes

spank said...

Unfortunately I have to settle for only stalking today but drinkings on my mind for tomorrow.

karen said...

@Dusty re: Jayson Werth and gazelle

You crack me up

Kyle Baker said...

Glad I could be of service, Karen!

karina said...

King James,I'm always praising you glove,what was that about?

Kyle Baker said...

Only King James' 3rd error of the year? Wow. I'm not surprised he's had a great defensive year, but wow. Still my MVP pick for the season.

spank said...

Torre is so old he wears a jacket in the middle of summer,just like my pops.

Kyle Baker said...

And he has Old Man Hat going, too.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker that's why I got surprised,because I think it's the second or third time that I watch King James get an error.

spank said...

BOOOOOOOOLISARIO!

Kyle Baker said...

Is there a nerd-stat for Almost Always Makes a Great Defensive Play at First But Every Once in Awhile Drops One?

karina said...

Back to back Bravos de Margarita pitchers on the mound for the Dodgers.

spank said...

I think you just created one if you combine the first letters. Let's ask Moriyama

Kyle Baker said...

Bravo for margaritas!

Kyle Baker said...

Can we squeeze with no one on third to try to get a run?

spank said...

The Carlos Santana I know and love is playing the shit out of the song Europa right now in my headphones

Kyle Baker said...

@Spank

1) Forgot to give you props on the avatar. How often does anyone pour Steel Reserve into a glass?

2) Just clicked onto your blog and read the most recent post. Cracked me up. Surly factor 5+ at time of posting, eh?

Kyle Baker said...

Good time for Dusty Baker's Toothpick to make a comment.

karina said...

@Dusty forgot to tell you lame beer is not enough to forget Sax

spank said...

Dude I was Fucked up and pissed because some lame fools hit a friend of mine up to see if i wanted to join their band. I called them up and everything was cool. Set a day up to jam. Called back to confirm. Got the slip. My Reputation for being a no shit taker proceeds me.

Nostradamus said...

Damn, I keep nodding off, and the score get worse.

NicJ said...

manny should be up to the big boy club soon.

0-2 with a strikeout tonight. So he is already better than half the guys on the team.

Kyle Baker said...

Three good beers, though, and Sax is a distant memory.

Kyle Baker said...

Thanks for the background. Get 'em Spank!

Josh S. said...

KJ74 threw strikes! Always a good thing.

Kyle Baker said...

You on diaper duty tonight, Josh?

(pun intended)

Josh S. said...

Man, I have irrational hate for Homer Bailey.

Maybe it's the broke-ass Christian Bale looks combined with the comic strip name.

Kyle Baker said...

Does Ethier or Kemp look worse at the plate these days? (Ladies: I mean their At Bats)

Kyle Baker said...

Homer Bailey has two cartoon names.

Josh S. said...

As a matter of fact, yes, DB. I think he was shooting for some sort of volume record tonight.

Kyle Baker said...

@Josh

I think I'm detecting it from all the way over here in Pasadena.

spank said...

Oh Shit!

Josh S. said...

I'd say Ethier looks worse at the plate, but gains points for looking upset when he fails.

SPECULATION!!!
