Oh no you dih-unt!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Manny not in the lineup again today. That settles it, he's being traded. You can't seriously tell me that, after the lineup scores only three runs yesterday, it still beats a lineup with Manny.

Dusty Baker said...

Nope, no one could say that with a straight face.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Podsednik 7
Theriot 4
Ethier 9
Kemp 8
Loney 3
Blake 5
Carroll 6
Ausmus 2
Lilly 1

Dusty Baker said...

Why bench Barajas? He's already hit 2 HR for us, which is about 13 more than any other catcher has this season.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Probably just the usually day game after night game stuff.

Josh S. said...

I wonder if Manny will even have a farewell game at Dodger Stadium tomorrow.

Dusty Baker said...

Tired of this pansy-ass day after night stuff. Back in my day...

Dusty Baker said...

If Manny gets a curtain call spot in the lineup tomorrow night, I'm going.

Josh S. said...

Blake's playing. There goes the day after night theory.

Dusty Baker said...

Day follows night...who knew.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

This is why baseball is doomed to failure in Norway.

Paul said...

I always prefer my days after night.

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, day precedes night...no, hold on...which comes first???

Josh S. said...

The egg.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This day after night phenomenon is a menace to baseball that must be stopped. First shadows, now this? IT'S MADNESS!!!

Dusty Baker said...

THE FUTURE IS THE FUTURE OF THIS ORGANIZATION!

Paul said...

Day and night, night and day, why is it so
That this longing for you follows wherever I go
In the roaring traffics boom
In the silence of my lonely room
I think of you

Neeebs said...

I guess that means that yesterday starts tomorrow and tomorrow starts today.

Dusty Baker said...

Got dayum this weather is beautiful. Feels like college football already!

Dusty Baker said...

How are those Shards looking? Hah! Go Nats!

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Just getting warmed up folks

Dusty Baker said...

On MDIL's sofa, Vinny!

Spanky said...

Where's everyone at? I know most of us don't go to church

Spanky said...

Fuck off CarGo

Dusty Baker said...

Baseball is my church.

Mr. Customer said...

A few stragglers see still over in the ├╝bernerd tread.

Spanky said...

Sit Down Tulo

Dusty Baker said...

You boys be careful not to ON (Over-Nerd).

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, let's get to this punk early.

Spanky said...

I peeked in the nerd thread earlier but only for a few seconds because I instantly felt like busting out a pocket protector.

Spanky said...

Boooooo!

NicJ said...

i wonder where loney is going to play after the dodgers give up on him

Spanky said...

Booooooooo!!!

MANNYMANNYMANNNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNY

Spanky said...

Loney will do great things in Seattle

Dusty Baker said...

WE WANT MANNY!

*CLAP, CLAP, CLAP CLAP CLAP!*

Dusty Baker said...

Son of a nutcracker.

NicJ said...

What the hell? i thought Helton was dead.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

Paul, were you quoting Ella Fitzgerald,Billie Holiday or Frank Sinatra? ;)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

STOOPID KEMP

Dusty Baker said...

Not a lot of blame for Kemp on that one. He did well just to get there.

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Heh...I love the contrast between the last two posts.

Dusty Baker said...

RT @Spanky BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

NicJ said...

i cant even remember the last time we lost a series to COL

Dusty Baker said...

It's only one run, boys and girls. Lot of game left.

#KarinaComment

NicJ said...

The dodgers are to be considered losing until they win.

#thewayithink

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Who's going to be the one to tell Vinny that newspapers are online now?

Spanky said...

@ Dusty

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

karina said...

are you booing the optimistic comment, Spanky?

Spanky said...

I doubt Vin even knows what online means.

karina said...

@Mr C i feel offended that you don't consider the ones who don't participate in puzzles "nerds".

I'm deeply offended

Spanky said...

@ Karina

yes,

Heckling Level-Out of Sight

Dusty Baker said...

We've regressed to LHWGs now. That includes Loney.

NicJ said...

it would be just like the dodgers to not lose a series to COL for over a year and then lose the one they need to win most.

Josh S. said...

Lilly's swing is so goddamn funny,

Spanky said...

At least the Dodgers are perfect in getting out so far

karina said...

@Spanky you're the one who suck, not the Dodgers

booooo to you

;)

NicJ said...

so how many do we have for fantasy now?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GO FUCK YOURSELF CARGO

NicJ said...

Fun fact: Carlos Gonzalez leads the league in "Lucky" homeruns.

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Pack your Bags

Dusty Baker said...

I hate it when the pitch is still on its way to the plate and you already know that it's going to end up in the seats.

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck yourself CarGo. I hate you.

Wish you were on our team.

NicJ said...

CarGo might be playing his way out of the winter league.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Catchers not named Russell Martin still have yet to catch a runner stealing. Though there's not much Ausmus could have done with that pitch.

karina said...

CarGo is on my other team.I love him,even when he plays/hits well against my Dodgers

Dusty Baker said...

Four spaces left in fantasy football.

Delino get your bitch ass in there.

Dittmore, hurry your slow ass up.

MB and Karina, we look forward to your presence.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Still at six for fantasy, though Prof. Dittmore is expected to join soon.

Spanky said...

MANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNY

Spanky said...

How long do the drafts take?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Even Vin is somewhat skeptical about benching Manny.

NicJ said...

well, 90 seconds a pick for like what, 20 rounds? 16?

if you dont select the program just takes the best available player. Unless you set it up to take certain positions.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Like Nic said, 90 seconds a pick. It's not meant to be overly competitive, just a fun way for commenters to interact outside of this site.

karina said...

@NicJ I don't think he's going to play winter baseball *sigh*if he doesn't play we really don't have much expectations to get into the playoffs.

It seems the Luis Aparicio Stadium is the worse stadium in the country.MLB didn't approve its conditions which complicates things,teams could yuse that excuse to prohibit major leaguers and minor leaguers prospects to play there.

It's national governments' fault. When my city and state were voted to be ruled by the opposition, they modified a law to keep all sports installations under their control. Every one of those installations is completely abandoned :(

Winter baseball starts in 6 weeks :(

The other factor is winter baseball agreement is more rigid than ever, starting February of this year,after Serie del Caribe

Dusty Baker said...

Men on the corners with no outs. Let's get it done, lads!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Andre homer, right here.

karina said...

@Dusty I've been studying football since yesterday, I know my butt is going to be kicked hard and mercilessly , I just want to have a decent participation.

Dusty Baker said...

We need a revolution to bring about better baseball stadia in Venezuela! *takes up arms*

NicJ said...

not meant to be overly competitive?

I'LL KILL YOU!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Believe me, I know very little re modern NFL. Used to be my big thing but not for many years. Don't even know who many of the players are. I watch it if it's on but don't get deeply into it. Hence, I will stink but enjoy playing.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That is to say, I wouldn't be surprised if Spanky becomes my mortal enemy for a week.

Dusty Baker said...

Did somebody say kill Kill KILLL!!!

NicJ said...

the players who know nothing about football usually end up doing well. Well enough to beat me week after week at least.

Spanky said...

Just asking because time is in the essence in the Spank household as of tomorrow. But I want to pick My own players so I can laugh at my huge fails

NicJ said...

Now here comes the double play.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's like the office secretary who picks Wake Forest over Duke because Demon Deacons are somewhat holier than Blue Devils.

Dusty Baker said...

Nats win! Fuck you Shards!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This inning started so promisingly.

Dusty Baker said...

These are just really unintelligent ABs for Ethier and Kemp. Dudes fancy themselves as All Stars and professional hitters??

Spanky said...

MANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNY

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FUCKING CORE YOU GUYS FUCKING SUCK

NicJ said...

After seeing that inning, we aint winning.

NicJ said...

Im ready to cut bait on loney.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker there was one time when they talked about prohibiting professional sports in the country but they regretted that, people might have reclaimed Chavez's head, what's this country without Caracas-Magallanes?

I'd have fought with no mercy and honor, no one interferes between me and winter baseball.

They also tried to prohibit selling beer in stadia (HAHAHAHAHA). That's impossible: we aren't used like you are, to make a line to buy beer.They sell beer in buckets (you know like those large paint buckets), they fill the buckets with ice and put the amount of beer you want. If your beer gets warm,you put some ice on and that's it. It's for losers to make a line to buy beer ;)

That's the other thing: I think you buy beer in the US at six packs, in Venezuela you buy beer six packs or 36 at the same time (known as caja)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If we lose this game, it's not because of Manny sitting, it's those piss-poor ABs by Kemp and Andre.

Dusty Baker said...

I want a bucket of beer right now!

Spanky said...

I'll take a bucket and a caja of beer

Dusty Baker said...

Thx for the beer comparison, Karina. Interesting. Some stadia in the US still have roaming beer sellers but others have abandoned the practice and make one line up.

Dusty Baker said...

What does caja translate to?

Spanky said...

@ Dusty

Caja = A Case

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm guessing caja means case.

Dusty Baker said...

STOOPID TORRE NOT START MANNY AT PITCHER!

NicJ said...

that weak ass throw from the fence kemp has been doing lately has really been pissing me off.

Dusty Baker said...

So 36 in a case? God damn I'm living in the wrong country. We only have 24 in our cajas. What sort of backwater shithole am I living in?

NicJ said...

can we just start the draft now, this is no longer interesting.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

This is a loss.

Bright spot: Emmy prep!

karina said...

Jonathan Herrera, the other guy from Maracaibo :(

Her also kills Aguilas too :( he;s worse than Jody Gerut

Dusty Baker said...

OMG why don't we just start a Venezuelan Winter League team and put all the players from the Venezuelan Winter League on that team?

Dusty Baker said...

How are you prepping for the Emmys, MLASF?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Because that team would likely kill everything in sight.

Spanky said...

You can get a 36 case of Natural Ice at Walmart for 15 dolla in my neck of the woods.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I mostly watch TV, followed by calling NBC and swearing repeatedly at a recording that tells me the line is no longer in operation.

Good times.

NicJ said...

season over, again.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We really needed to win yesterday's game.

Josh S. said...

I tried to watch the LLWS instead of this, but all the douchey Bryce Harper/Ultimate Warrior eye black was pissing me off.

Dusty Baker said...

Son of a god dammit.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

LLWS, here I come!

karina said...

@Dusty Baker the 36-cajas are for recyclable bottles. If you don't have the empty bottles, the caja is more expensive. We call the whole empty bottles "vacio"

When you go to the liquor store and ask for a caja, they always ask if you have the "vacio" or not"

We also have 24 bottle caja, but most of the time is for light and/or premium beer.

I feel people here don't like light beer, but we have a brand here, called Polar Solera light, which is an excellent premium pilsen beer, the bottle is blue. There is also regular Solera, which comes in a green bottle.

If interested, I think you can get those beers in the US, you can get them at some parts in Florida.I don't know about California...I think it's possible

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YOU CARGO I AM GOING TO MOLEST YOUR MOTHER.

Josh S. said...

F U HAYDEN PENNITIERE!!!

NicJ said...

no offense karina, but i hope CarGo has a career ending injury.

Spanky said...

I'm calling it season again, Lads and Ladies

NicJ said...

that was all on two outs.

karina said...

Carlos Gonzalez can't break my heart, even when he kills Dodgers.

Dusty Baker said...

I will be happy to peruse any Polar advertising you run across, Karina. ;-)

karina said...

CarGo's mother looks like his older sister, seriously.

Spanky said...

FUCK YOU ELLEN

karina said...

@NicJ noooooooo, he's that good, a real 5-tool player and a gentleman, at least what I know about him.

NicJ said...

CarGo is good, but Lilly is an idiot for throwing him that same pitch over and over again.

Dusty Baker said...

Done and done on this season (not that it hasn't been). This series loss takes us out of WC and means we'll fire sale several players. They better offer me some 75% off tickets or I ain't going any more this season.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker the Solera brand is part of Polar ;)

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Is his mother cute?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I feel uncomfortable rooting for Hawaii as that is the home of Shane Victorino.

karina said...

Go Admiral Ackbar!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Down to three for the fantasy. Meanie's in.

NicJ said...

I imagine the team is going to lose quite a bit of revenue this last month.

karina said...

@Dusty baker she is, she looks young, she had (I think) 4 or 5 kids and CarGo is the youngest or second youngest. She looks like she was on her late eighties or early forties. Looks very good.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hawaii has the tying runs aboard.

Meaniebreanie said...

Epale Y'all!

Spanky said...

There you go Karina. Time for you to join. I'll help you with your draft. Pick Matt Leinart for your quaterback.

Dusty Baker said...

Is there any football on? Otherwise I'm going to have to sit through pre-Emmys dress critiques by Mrs Dusty and MDIL.

Speaking of Emmys, break a leg, Tanya! (My friend who is up for an award for COLBERT REPORT tonight).

Dusty Baker said...

Spank is picking an all Detroit Lions fantasy football team.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No football until five.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Don't listen to Spanky, Karina. Pick JaMarcus Russell.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker I forgot,other venezuelan beer brand, has a Catira (blond).She appears on TV and print brands with minuscule bikinis and no one has ever seen her face.

*sigh*this is a country that thrives on female beauty.

Meaniebreanie said...

@Mr. LASF - now that I am sober I successfully signed up for fantasy football. You and I may both regret this as I have never done this before. You need to coach me as we go through this. Tell me what I need to do and I will do it.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to create a robot to go back in time and take out CarGo's mom so she can't birth him.

Dusty Baker said...

"Tell me what I need to do and I will do it."

Several ways I might want to go with this kind of statement. However, Karina is kicking me under the table so I will say nothing.

NicJ said...

Im Rooting against Hawaii specifically because i hate victorino so much.

GO JAPAN!!!

Meaniebreanie said...

If MB has her way, her fantasy team will be mostly Cowboys and Saints picks.

karina said...

@Spanky @MR LASF something tells me I shouldn't trust in your advice.

Spanky said...

It could be worse Dusty. I could pick the Rams players.

BTW The Rams are my favorite Team if you can call them that.....a team that is.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

ALL countries thrive on that. Well, not the Muslim ones under Sharia law. But most do.

Meaniebreanie said...

@DB - How I take direction depends on the man giving it to me :D

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hawaii's on the board.

Dusty Baker said...

It's not the LLWS unless some American team gets whupped by a bunch of Asian kids.

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho rancho!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Meanie - To be fair, I'm learning this as I go too. I've never set a league up on ESPN, so I'm unfamiliar with what will happen.

karina said...

Not like venezuelan, Dusty Baker.

If I get you the Catira Regional ads, can you stop saying season's over?

NicJ said...

im guessing Andre with a weak dribbler back to the pitcher.

Dusty Baker said...

Loved Vinny's humidor/cigar shop reference.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

For the love of Jackie, work the walk, Andre.

Spanky said...

MANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNYMANNY


Aw It's only Dre

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Yes, I can be bribed to be vaguely optimistic in return for South American beer porn.

Dusty Baker said...

Full count up in dis bish.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There are shadows in Central Pennsylvania too? THIS POX IS EVERYWHERE. IT MUST BE CONTAINED.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Figures.

NicJ said...

remember when this team was fun to watch?

Yeah, me neither.

Dusty Baker said...

Dre just looks AWFUL swinging at the ball. Failed to advance 5 runners in his last 2 ABs. Putrid, Dre. Even the little teenage girls are talking shit about you now.

Spanky said...

KKEMP'D BY 'DRE

karina said...

way to waste Rancho Ardiendo :(

Dusty Baker said...

Remember when Dre was clutch? Me neither.

Dusty Baker said...

Nats won. Gnats are losing.

Spanky said...

That was Rancho Retardiendo

NicJ said...

so are the white sox willing to cough up any prospects yet?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh look, it's Drunky McClutchfail. He'll save us.

Spanky said...

Hey MB, Pick Brady Quinn as your Quarterback

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's all about Sage Rosenfels at QB.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Karina - ESPN has a mock draft if you need help deciding who to choose.

Spanky said...

It seems like Helton is batting every inning

karina said...

^Venezuela

for the first time ever, I'm drinking chilean wine while on a GT.

Neeebs, if you are reading this, it's white wine, Sauvignon Blanc, Santa Carolina 2009

Dusty Baker said...

No shit...Helton gets to bat every third batter. CarGo is 8-10 today.

NicJ said...

there goes our hard earned run.

karina said...

@Mr LASF thanks for the tip.You've managed way more than my brothers in YEARS.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Everybody's hitting a homer to left.

MR. F said...

It was 1-0 when I left the apartment. Damnit.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Those Japanese kids really do like Ichiro. They all just bunt, bunt, bunt.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm about to drink a caja of Pacifico and help Mrs Dusty and MDIL critique dem hoes on the Emmys.

Dusty Baker said...

Things have worked out for Ichiro, though, one has to admit.

MR. F said...

Make that 8-1... AHHH.

NicJ said...

i want the japanese team to win because i want to see how the kids are going to be able to throw their coach in the air.

Meaniebreanie said...

Ok, I'm really out of it as I posted on an old thread.

@Spank - you are dreaming. If I don't know a QB I'm not going to pick him. It's either Drew Brees or Tony Romo for me (given the opportunity).

karina said...

@Dusty Baker there are less Catira Regional advertising availavle on the Internet:

http://dawarg.blogab.com/archives/261-La-catira-vestida-y-Regional-Pilsen-con-nueva-imagen.html

the slogan says: for people who know about beer

http://www.rumbacaracas.com/contenido/pics/catirabotella-x_0.jpg

slogan: you can't miss her

http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=53594&PN=15

first one is (in slang) will you miss her?
second one is how many blonds can you handle?

this is pretty clever, since this beer is golden or blond ;)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

When the pitcher singles off you, you know you've got some problems this year.

Meaniebreanie said...

Ok - I have to leave. Catch you all later.

@Mr. LASF Do we pick teams tomorrow at 7:00 PST? Or are we going to have a separate thread to discuss this or just hook up online at ESPN tomorrow? Inquiring minds want to know.

NicJ said...

well there will be a game thread here. Seeing how there isnt going to be much of a game tomorrow we might as well use it for something.

karina said...

@Mr LASF I can't decide on a name for my team :(

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks for the beer porn, Karina!

I now believe that Dodgers can still win the Wild Card race.
