Random rantings and ravings about the Los Angeles Dodgers, written by a small consortium of rabid Dodger fans. With occasional comments on baseball, entertainment, pop culture and life in general.
Ted Lilly (5-0, 1.83) vs. Jason Hammel (8-7, 4.35).
That is the hardest part about fantasy football.
@MBThere is a message board within the fantasy league page that we can talk on.
@Dusty Baker I don't know why you say it's "porn"Don't you have advertising like that in the US?
We pick players tomorrow at seven. Draft order should be determined at six. We don't need to discuss our decisions, though the league will have a chatroom or we could hijack tomorrow's GT.
Damn Gnats are winning now.
Don't worry about a name, Karina. You can change it whenever you like.
@Karina"Porn" is just a euphemism in this sense for pictures of scantily-clad women.
@ Karina How 'bout the Porn Drunks
You could call your team "CarGo's Hot Mother," Karina.
DB, Mr. LASF Thanks for the info. See you on it tomorrow. Ciao for now.
@Dusty Baker notice like the regular-looking (to cute in IMHO wins over the muscle guy)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9glHiGiCy-U
Name your team "Dr. Funke's 100 Percent Natural Good Time Family Band Solution."
thanks for the useless RBI, Loney.
@Spanky I can't do that, so far I don't like porn
Thats's my King!
That "Just for Men" commercial does not belong on the LLWS.
Back-to-back doubles! We're only down by 6!
"so far I don't like porn"That's a classic line.
its an acquired taste.
@Mr F as always I like the way you talk@Dusty Baker I mean it, the only porn movie I saw left me traumatized
Karina, you're cracking me up today. Thanks for your humour - intentional or otherwise - during this otherwise miserable game.Rancho Mannyiendo!!!!
@Mr LASF I love everyone's team names.Yours is great. When playing fantasy baseball/soccer I usually go by "Peanuts" that's too dorky
haha, oh shit.
@Dusty Baker this is not intentional :(
i dont think ive ever seen that.
And a Simers piece was born.
Awwww, Karina's a delicate flower (wipes tear)
Will that be Manny's last AB?
"A pinch hitter for the pinch hitter."
andrew siciliano will not be fun to listen to tomorrow.
I think Joe Torre did that just to spite MoKM.
That was FUCKING BULLSHIT man. FUCK THAT
come on karina, you have to admit defeat after that.
I WANT TO RIP SOMEONE'S HEAD OFF
I nominate Bill Plaschke's.
Japan takes a 4-1 lead.
Plaschke's going to rip into Manny like a plump Christmas goose.
It was a trap.
pitch limit takes another victim.
Wait, which one is the plump christmas goose?
I could go for a plump Christmas goose right about now.
i like manny, a lot but i think it would be hilarious if that was his last AB as a dodger.
Ozzie Guillen was also tossed. Beautiful symmetry.
The Professor's in. Two spots left.
Finally getting on a normal comp. Still room in the league or should I leave the space open and just heckle you all?
@NicJ I won;t admit defeat 'till math tells me so@Spanky if you knew what I saw, you'd understand :(
@Paul - See ^above^
Why did they take Manny out? Did he get hurt? I'm on Gameday I can't see what's going on. Is there not a gawd?TORRE: My fist,Your Face
@PaulGet in the league AND heckle us all.
@Spanky - Manny was ejected after arguing a called first strike. That's right. FIRST STRIKE.
paul and karina should fill up the last two spots.
@SpankHe was tossed for arguing balls and strikes. After one pitch. That was outside. That was called a strike.
As Dylan Hernandez points out, Torre never came out to defend Manny. Joe knows it's over (both the season and Manny's tenure in LA).
Fuck I hate this Internet card! Where is the high speed for hicks you promised Obama?!?
that shit don't smell right
the little victorinos only have two more outs to work with.
Karina's in! One more spot, so hurry on up!
What are you on Dial up,Paul?
"Where is the high speed for hicks you promised Obama?!?"That was funny, Paul.I want my damn high speed rail, too.
Paul, there's this new service called AOL that you should try out.
I'm still waiting for the light rail and subway to the sea that .5% sales tax hike is supposed to bring.
High speed rail is coming. At least, I'm working on it...
Paul, what are you waiting for?
I was hoping for a Son to participate just to lend the league a little street cred, but I'm just happy nearly every spot is filled.
the sons have seemed mostly absent here for a while.They must have lives or something.
SUCK IT VICTORINO!!
@ MLASFWe can always vote someone out to add a son.Like what happened to Pedro
BAHAHAHAHGreat idea, Spanky!
K I am an idiot. I amon the main page where is the join button?
I was actually rooting for Lasorda to come out of his cave and join the shenanigans
Matt Kemp has 2 hits today.
I'll be 4,213 before high speed rail is finished, unfortunately.
The Little Ichiros beat the Little Victorinos.
@Paul in the third top from the bottom sidebar there's a button: join a league/You're not a idiot.
@Mr FI'm just joshing around re high speed rail. Bug proponent of the project. Think we should pour shitload of cash into the project to create jobs and to make it easier for me to get upstate to heckle Paul in person.
There's still one spot left, and it's up for grabs. Anyone can claim it, not just Paul. It's a public league, so there's nothing I can do about who participates.
@DB,All good. I'm actually in the office working on the project as we speak. It's definitely decades (if not centuries...) away from actually getting anywhere.And I'm all for it, too. Especially as a Bay Area SoSG-er.
@Mr LASF when I tell my brothers I joined a football fantasy league for fun they won't believe it.I'm so going to watch SportsCenter on very early Monday morning while on the treadmill
@MR.LASF,Paul has no competition from me. I'm not a huge football (or fantasy football) fan, but I've been suckered into a fantasy league already with my friends so doing another league wouldn't have been a big deal. But if Paul is eager, it's all his!
Paul's in, and the league is complete!
I wonder if I can fuck Paul's shit up more over at the league site with conflicting edits.
Mr F are you working?
im interested to watch baseball tonight so i can see Kruk call Manny the Hilter of baseball.
@SpankyThat's exactly what I was just thinking re conflicting edits (the Loney Fan Gambit, isn't it called)?
Opening Week matchups are as follows:MLASF vs. SpankyDusty vs. Mr CMeaniebreanie vs. PaulNic vs. JasonProf. Dittmore vs. Karina
I'll bet Jason makes his draft pick within about .0032 seconds each time it's his turn.
@ DustyIt's scary that we think alike at times HaHa
am I going against the Professor? not a chance!well, I know i'm going to have lots of fun on the draft
@Mr F don't worry, working on Sundays is part of success
time to study up on the draft.Is there a limit on how many times i can draft Tebow?
Next year I should open more spots. Maybe a 12 or 14 team league.
I got my eye on Ditty. He is a Professor.
Oh Snap! The game is still on
@KarinaYou are going to take out P Ditty like a sniper on a roof.
Great...Phiwwies are starting to heat up and they bring Doc and Lee harvey to pitch against us this week.
Fuck Yeah! P. Ditty
There is a five Tebow limit. You can draft Vincent Jackson as many times as you'd like though.
Hey Karina, Draft Tavaris Jackson as your quarterback
time to catch up@SpankyGo Rams!@Karina re: Night and Day I had Frank in my head but Fitzgerald is better (sorry godfather you are still the man!" oh and from a few days ago re: performance socks.http://tiny.cc/1dnnx
I am gonna have an ALL Fresno State Team!!Go Trent Dilfer!!!!MRLASF, 14 team leagues gets tricky. I need to look at our scoring system and bench numbers.
This Jansen kid is growing on me
@Karina and other Beatles fans:http://loveallthis.tumblr.com/post/166124704
Thanks Dusty! That made my day.
Like to send a shout out to MLASF for setting up a fantasy league and giving us another opportunity to spend time yammering about the mostly inconsequential. Conversely, Mrs Dusty is giving you a huge stinkeye.
@Paul Ella is the ONE and ONLY
Any truth that the winner gets a dinner cooked by neeebs?
So, season over again, eh?This has been the Return of the King of Dodger seasons. It has "ended" about 37 times now.
I thought the winner was actually a cooked Neeebs.
I should organize some kind of prize for the victor. I'll figure that out later.
@JoshIt's more like GODFATHER III. They just shouldn't have made it in the first place.@KarinaNot that we aren't going to end up going 31-0 to finish the season!
Prize is a caja of Regional Draft.
Funny. I haven't cried this much since I paid to see Godfather III.
O's sweep Angels for the second time. haha.
@Dusty Baker Regional Draft sucks.One of my parents' close friends is a hmmmm "maestro cervecero". His job was to supervise the quality of beer in the Maracaibo's Polar fabric. If he knows I recently drank Regional, poor me!
bases loaded, again.
@Mr LASF did you cry because Mary Corleone was killed? ;)
I, too, am a maestro cervecero.
how long have you been holding onto that one, DB?
Huh. It's now a save situation.
@NicJO's swept the Angels on the SEASON, no?
they may have, let me check.
Oh shit they are still playing?!Don't blame Kemp!! Haters!
The Dodgers tease to the end.
We have a game now, ladies and gents
Ethier just look PUTRID!
well i'll be, they did sweep the season series.
If we could come from behind, that would be a kick to Colorado's groin.
Sons have pretty much been gone all weekend. Can't believe they left us all alone in the house.
i no like andre.
Delino has been intermittent lately, and Sax has been working on the P&A.
I would suggest Ethier sit for a bit, but I know KempKershaw would jump in and tell me what an idiot I am, so I won't say anything.
King James, remember you're the KING of the road
Ooh, not such a good outing for the Old Roughrider.Kinds glad I missed the worst.
If Kemp hits a homerun all is forgiven. Well not really. Unless he hits it really faaaar!
I'll bet Sons of Dante Bichette are getting nervous now.
now would be a great time for one of those unexpected loney grand slams.
Loney is the go-ahead run.
How many Rancho Ardiendos have we had today? Third, no?
Come on, road Loney!
WORK THE FUCKING WALK LONEY
My guts are churning.
I'm gonna break this fucking computer over my knee.
I SAID WORK THE FUCKING WALK YOU STOOPID SUMBITCH
King James Loney of Seattle.Has a ring to it.
Waive James Loney!
I need some soothing wisdom from Fred's Brim about right now.
FREE JAMES LONEY!!!!(of his roster spot)
@NicSeattle already has a king, though. Will it be War of the Roses between Loney and Felix?
When did John Ireland get bumped up to #3 on the CBS/KCAL depth chart?
Eh, whatever. Loney isnt exactly a King anyways.Unless its the King of Mediocrity.
Dbacks take the lead.
Loney will hit 25 homers in Kansas City next year.
jints threatening though.
NVM, jints retake the lead.
James Loney is a King.Period.
Loney is the king.Of light-hitting 1Bs.
The King of the lowest OPS among first basemen.
James Loney is the King of Carrot Flowers.
oh god, this is embarrassing.
how the hell did we beat Jimenez and lose the next two.
Just fuckin plunk Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes.
Every time I see him pitch, I realize what a brilliant acquisition Dotel was.
Somewhere James McDonald is pitching a shutout.
I'm calling it a season again,again
It hurrrrrrrts. Make it stop.*heads to suicide bridge in pasadena*
I'm not listening to you @Mr LASF @NicJ @Mr F
suicide bridge? you're such a hipster, DB.
Look who's coming up again for the thosandth time
To be honest i really like loney. He just isnt producing anywhere near what he should be. Now with the ownership/farm system issue im sure we are stuck with him for a while.
Relax, Karina. Loney's not going anywhere. Frank's too cheap to spring for a decent pitcher, let alone position player.
Hey look, it's Huston "I'm too cool for the O before the U" Street.
this has been set up to where the phillies can end our season once again.
I think the Pirates ended our season on Opening Day.
Wait, I'm kidding, we're going to win the World Series!Sorry, Karina, I forgot.
damn that garret jones
I actually didn't mean anything bad towards James Loney and just wanted an excuse to post a link to a cool song.But I do think our season is pretty much over. I am just hoping for little victories from here until the end.
all i have left to look forward to is maybe playing a spoiler for the giants.
Game. Series. Season.
I have resigned myself to a less than successful season. I just want not to be embarrassed (e.g., play a game like we did today).
"A frustrated and angry Dodger ballclub?" Maybe they could alleviate some of that by learning to play baseball.
at least it was a long game. Shorter wait for TEBOW TIME.(i hate him)
That was a shame
