200!

MR. F said...

That is the hardest part about fantasy football.

Dusty Baker said...

@MB

There is a message board within the fantasy league page that we can talk on.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker I don't know why you say it's "porn"

Don't you have advertising like that in the US?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

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.

Dusty Baker said...

Damn Gnats are winning now.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Don't worry about a name, Karina. You can change it whenever you like.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

"Porn" is just a euphemism in this sense for pictures of scantily-clad women.

Spanky said...

@ Karina

How 'bout the Porn Drunks

Dusty Baker said...

You could call your team "CarGo's Hot Mother," Karina.

Meaniebreanie said...

DB, Mr. LASF
Thanks for the info. See you on it tomorrow. Ciao for now.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker notice like the regular-looking (to cute in IMHO wins over the muscle guy)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9glHiGiCy-U

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Name your team "Dr. Funke's 100 Percent Natural Good Time Family Band Solution."

NicJ said...

thanks for the useless RBI, Loney.

karina said...

@Spanky I can't do that, so far I don't like porn

karina said...

Thats's my King!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That "Just for Men" commercial does not belong on the LLWS.

MR. F said...

Back-to-back doubles! We're only down by 6!

Dusty Baker said...

"so far I don't like porn"

That's a classic line.

NicJ said...

its an acquired taste.

karina said...

@Mr F as always I like the way you talk

@Dusty Baker I mean it, the only porn movie I saw left me traumatized

Dusty Baker said...

Karina, you're cracking me up today. Thanks for your humour - intentional or otherwise - during this otherwise miserable game.

Rancho Mannyiendo!!!!

karina said...

@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

MR. F said...

Rancho Ardiendo!

NicJ said...

haha, oh shit.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker this is not intentional :(

NicJ said...

i dont think ive ever seen that.

Josh S. said...

And a Simers piece was born.

Spanky said...

Awwww, Karina's a delicate flower

(wipes tear)

Dusty Baker said...

Will that be Manny's last AB?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oooooooooookay

Dusty Baker said...

"A pinch hitter for the pinch hitter."

NicJ said...

andrew siciliano will not be fun to listen to tomorrow.

MR. F said...

Yeah... huh?

MR. F said...

I think Joe Torre did that just to spite MoKM.

Spanky said...

That was FUCKING BULLSHIT man. FUCK THAT

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FUCKING FIGURES

NicJ said...

come on karina, you have to admit defeat after that.

Dusty Baker said...

I WANT TO RIP SOMEONE'S HEAD OFF

MR. F said...

I nominate Bill Plaschke's.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Japan takes a 4-1 lead.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Plaschke's going to rip into Manny like a plump Christmas goose.

MR. F said...

It was a trap.

NicJ said...

pitch limit takes another victim.

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, which one is the plump christmas goose?

MR. F said...

I could go for a plump Christmas goose right about now.

NicJ said...

i like manny, a lot but i think it would be hilarious if that was his last AB as a dodger.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Ozzie Guillen was also tossed. Beautiful symmetry.

NicJ said...

unintentional comma.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Professor's in. Two spots left.

Paul said...

Finally getting on a normal comp. Still room in the league or should I leave the space open and just heckle you all?

karina said...

@NicJ I won;t admit defeat 'till math tells me so

@Spanky if you knew what I saw, you'd understand :(

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Paul - See ^above^

Spanky said...

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

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

Get in the league AND heckle us all.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Spanky - Manny was ejected after arguing a called first strike. That's right. FIRST STRIKE.

NicJ said...

paul and karina should fill up the last two spots.

karina said...

^won't

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

He was tossed for arguing balls and strikes. After one pitch. That was outside. That was called a strike.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

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).

Paul said...

Fuck I hate this Internet card!

Where is the high speed for hicks you promised Obama?!?

Spanky said...

that shit don't smell right

NicJ said...

the little victorinos only have two more outs to work with.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Karina's in! One more spot, so hurry on up!

Spanky said...

What are you on Dial up,Paul?

Dusty Baker said...

"Where is the high speed for hicks you promised Obama?!?"

That was funny, Paul.

I want my damn high speed rail, too.

Dusty Baker said...

Paul, there's this new service called AOL that you should try out.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm still waiting for the light rail and subway to the sea that .5% sales tax hike is supposed to bring.

MR. F said...

High speed rail is coming. At least, I'm working on it...

karina said...

Paul, what are you waiting for?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

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.

NicJ said...

the sons have seemed mostly absent here for a while.

They must have lives or something.

NicJ said...

SUCK IT VICTORINO!!

Spanky said...

@ MLASF

We can always vote someone out to add a son.Like what happened to Pedro

MR. F said...

BAHAHAHAH

Great idea, Spanky!

Paul said...

K I am an idiot. I am
on the main page where is the join button?

Spanky said...

I was actually rooting for Lasorda to come out of his cave and join the shenanigans

MR. F said...

Matt Kemp has 2 hits today.

Dusty Baker said...

I'll be 4,213 before high speed rail is finished, unfortunately.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Little Ichiros beat the Little Victorinos.

karina said...

@Paul in the third top from the bottom sidebar there's a button: join a league/

You're not a idiot.

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr F

I'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.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

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.

MR. F said...

@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.

karina said...

@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. F said...

@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!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Paul's in, and the league is complete!

Spanky said...

I wonder if I can fuck Paul's shit up more over at the league site with conflicting edits.

karina said...

Mr F are you working?

NicJ said...

im interested to watch baseball tonight so i can see Kruk call Manny the Hilter of baseball.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spanky

That's exactly what I was just thinking re conflicting edits (the Loney Fan Gambit, isn't it called)?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Opening Week matchups are as follows:

MLASF vs. Spanky
Dusty vs. Mr C
Meaniebreanie vs. Paul
Nic vs. Jason
Prof. Dittmore vs. Karina

MR. F said...

@Karina,
Yeah =(.

Dusty Baker said...

I'll bet Jason makes his draft pick within about .0032 seconds each time it's his turn.

Spanky said...

@ Dusty

It's scary that we think alike at times HaHa

karina said...

am I going against the Professor? not a chance!

well, I know i'm going to have lots of fun on the draft

karina said...

@Mr F don't worry, working on Sundays is part of success

NicJ said...

time to study up on the draft.

Is there a limit on how many times i can draft Tebow?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Next year I should open more spots. Maybe a 12 or 14 team league.

Spanky said...

I got my eye on Ditty. He is a Professor.

Dusty Baker said...

Heh...P. Ditty

Spanky said...

Oh Snap! The game is still on

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

You are going to take out P Ditty like a sniper on a roof.

Dusty Baker said...

Great...Phiwwies are starting to heat up and they bring Doc and Lee harvey to pitch against us this week.

Spanky said...

Fuck Yeah! P. Ditty

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There is a five Tebow limit. You can draft Vincent Jackson as many times as you'd like though.

Spanky said...

Hey Karina, Draft Tavaris Jackson as your quarterback

Paul said...

time to catch up

@Spanky

Go 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

Paul said...

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.

karina said...

This Jansen kid is growing on me

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina and other Beatles fans:

http://loveallthis.tumblr.com/post/166124704

MR. F said...

Thanks Dusty! That made my day.

Dusty Baker said...

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.

karina said...

@Paul Ella is the ONE and ONLY

Paul said...

Any truth that the winner gets a dinner cooked by neeebs?

Josh S. said...

So, season over again, eh?

This has been the Return of the King of Dodger seasons. It has "ended" about 37 times now.

MR. F said...

I thought the winner was actually a cooked Neeebs.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I should organize some kind of prize for the victor. I'll figure that out later.

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

It's more like GODFATHER III. They just shouldn't have made it in the first place.

@Karina

Not that we aren't going to end up going 31-0 to finish the season!

Dusty Baker said...

Prize is a caja of Regional Draft.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Funny. I haven't cried this much since I paid to see Godfather III.

NicJ said...

O's sweep Angels for the second time. haha.

karina said...

@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!

NicJ said...

bases loaded, again.

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho Theriendo!

karina said...

@Mr LASF did you cry because Mary Corleone was killed? ;)

Dusty Baker said...

I, too, am a maestro cervecero.

NicJ said...

how long have you been holding onto that one, DB?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Huh. It's now a save situation.

Dusty Baker said...

@NicJ

O's swept the Angels on the SEASON, no?

NicJ said...

they may have, let me check.

Paul said...

Oh shit they are still playing?!

Don't blame Kemp!! Haters!

MR. F said...

The Dodgers tease to the end.

MR. F said...

The Dodgers tease to the end.

karina said...

We have a game now, ladies and gents

Dusty Baker said...

Ethier just look PUTRID!

Dusty Baker said...

^looks

NicJ said...

well i'll be, they did sweep the season series.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If we could come from behind, that would be a kick to Colorado's groin.

Dusty Baker said...

Sons have pretty much been gone all weekend. Can't believe they left us all alone in the house.

NicJ said...

i no like andre.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Delino has been intermittent lately, and Sax has been working on the P&A.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

STOOPID ANDRE

Dusty Baker said...

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.

karina said...

King James, remember you're the KING of the road

Mr. Customer said...

Ooh, not such a good outing for the Old Roughrider.

Kinds glad I missed the worst.

Paul said...

If Kemp hits a homerun all is forgiven. Well not really. Unless he hits it really faaaar!

Dusty Baker said...

I'll bet Sons of Dante Bichette are getting nervous now.

NicJ said...

now would be a great time for one of those unexpected loney grand slams.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Loney is the go-ahead run.

Dusty Baker said...

How many Rancho Ardiendos have we had today? Third, no?

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, road Loney!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WORK THE FUCKING WALK LONEY

Dusty Baker said...

My guts are churning.

NicJ said...

Rancho Comingupemptiendo

Dusty Baker said...

I'm gonna break this fucking computer over my knee.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I SAID WORK THE FUCKING WALK YOU STOOPID SUMBITCH

NicJ said...

King James Loney of Seattle.

Has a ring to it.

Spanky said...

Waive James Loney!

Dusty Baker said...

I need some soothing wisdom from Fred's Brim about right now.

NicJ said...

FREE JAMES LONEY!!!!

(of his roster spot)

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

Seattle already has a king, though. Will it be War of the Roses between Loney and Felix?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

When did John Ireland get bumped up to #3 on the CBS/KCAL depth chart?

Spanky said...

Octavio Blowstel!

NicJ said...

Eh, whatever. Loney isnt exactly a King anyways.

Unless its the King of Mediocrity.

NicJ said...

Dbacks take the lead.

Spanky said...

Loney will hit 25 homers in Kansas City next year.

NicJ said...

jints threatening though.

NicJ said...

NVM, jints retake the lead.

karina said...

James Loney is a King.Period.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Loney is the king.



Of light-hitting 1Bs.

NicJ said...

The King of the lowest OPS among first basemen.

MR. F said...

James Loney is the King of Carrot Flowers.

NicJ said...

oh god, this is embarrassing.

Spanky said...

NicJ said...

how the hell did we beat Jimenez and lose the next two.

Dusty Baker said...

Just fuckin plunk Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes.

Dave said...

Every time I see him pitch, I realize what a brilliant acquisition Dotel was.

MR. F said...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4avoEbGjYu0

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Somewhere James McDonald is pitching a shutout.

Spanky said...

I'm calling it a season again,again

Dusty Baker said...

It hurrrrrrrts. Make it stop.

*heads to suicide bridge in pasadena*

karina said...

I'm not listening to you @Mr LASF @NicJ @Mr F

NicJ said...

suicide bridge? you're such a hipster, DB.

Spanky said...

Look who's coming up again for the thosandth time

NicJ said...

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.

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Relax, Karina. Loney's not going anywhere. Frank's too cheap to spring for a decent pitcher, let alone position player.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hey look, it's Huston "I'm too cool for the O before the U" Street.

NicJ said...

this has been set up to where the phillies can end our season once again.

Dusty Baker said...

I think the Pirates ended our season on Opening Day.

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, I'm kidding, we're going to win the World Series!

Sorry, Karina, I forgot.

NicJ said...

damn that garret jones

MR. F said...

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.

NicJ said...

all i have left to look forward to is maybe playing a spoiler for the giants.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Game. Series. Season.

Dusty Baker said...

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).

Dave said...

"A frustrated and angry Dodger ballclub?" Maybe they could alleviate some of that by learning to play baseball.

NicJ said...

at least it was a long game. Shorter wait for TEBOW TIME.

(i hate him)

Spanky said...

That was a shame
