Virgin poll...

Paul said...

We aren't the champions my friends and we gave up fighting a long time ago.....

Josh S. said...

0-21, baby! Nothing sexier than 69 wins!

You are too good for us Kuroda.....don't let your interpreter say a word...just..... go....don't look back I want to remember you with that solid ERA.

Josh S. said...

Furcal-6
Carroll-4
Blake-5
Ethier-9
Kemp-8
Johnson-7
Mitchell-3
Barajas-2
Kuroda-1

Josh S. said...

I can't even muster a good lineup gag.

Spanky said...

I vote like Monte Brewster

"None of the Above"

Paul said...

Wait that wasn't a gag?

MR. F said...

69 losses is sexier than 69 wins!!!!!

Jason said...

Monte Brewster is very appropriate right now. The train he installed in the outfield obviously was the inspiration for the Minute Maid Park train.

I would really enjoy seeing Torre completely lose by jumping on that train and trying to ride it out of town. Though, come to think of it, that does seem like a stunt Bowa is much more likely to pull.

Dusty Baker said...

My god we're surly already.

I like it.

Dusty Baker said...

"Wait that wasn't a gag?"

Well played, Paul. Well played.

(cries)

Josh S. said...

Bestest video ever?

It sure brightened my day.

Dusty Baker said...

Josh, that video hits dangerously close to home for many of us.

BRILLIANT. Love Spock throwing his sign, *West Coast* style.

That Katy Perry song was my summer song this year, cause I had nothing else, so this video puts the bow on the tune.

Jason said...

Not Entirely Health-6
Not Expecting a Trap-4
Not Carlos Santana-5
Not a Triple Crown Thread-9
Not Even Trying-8
Not Manny-7
Not Better Than Loney-3
Not Going to Have a 1.076 OPS Again-2
Kuroda-1

Jason said...

Thought I'd try the gag lineup for once...

MR. F said...

Kuroda = not much to complain about.

Oh wait, I just jinxed him, didn't I?

Dusty Baker said...

"Not Carlos Santana"

Heh.

MR. F said...

Can't watch video. Must conserve processing power.

Eric 'Da Gnome said...

@ Mr. F I doubt much can affect the Dodgers now.

Mr. Customer said...

Holy crap, that video rules.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WHORES. ALL OF YOU.

Josh S. said...

Whore Island.
Population: Mr. LA Sports Fan.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I resent that.

Mr. Customer said...

I'm not from Whore Island proper, but it's still considered Whore Island adjacent.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I admit, I am a whore. But a whore with a heart of gold. Like Rod Blagojevich..

Josh S. said...

I suppose the Sons wouldn't want to change the sidebar to read "Top Whores," would they?

Dusty Baker said...

What do I get for ten dollars?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

An authentic strand of his hair.

Oh, sorry, I thought you were asking what you could get from Blago for $10.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

But it all helps the children.

His children. But they're still children.

Josh S. said...

The ability to park 2/3 of your car at Dodger Stadium.

Josh S. said...

HEY WHY THERE NO DODGERS OR DBACKS ON POLL

Mr. Customer said...

I if you do go for in for Blago's hair, don't leave it lying around. That shit will take root and then you'll never be able to get rid of it.

Josh S. said...

Seriously though, who voted for the Giants?

That's a paddlin'.

Dusty Baker said...

No FULL METAL JACKET fans out there? Or Luke Skywalker fans (the rapper, not the Jedi)?

Dusty Baker said...

Josh started it! *points, accusingly*

Josh S. said...

Coincidentally, you can also get a paddlin' for that $10.

Dusty Baker said...

Money well spent!

Steve Sax said...

$10 = 5/6 of a Dodger Stadium beer

Josh S. said...

With the season toast, is it too much to hope for to have these guys at least play like they're having fun? It's over! Go crazy! Steal bases! Hot dog! Do the hidden ball trick! (Also available for $10.)

You can start tonight. I want to see Kemp do a Singin' in the Rain move around the flag pole on Tal's hill after making a catch.

GET GOOFY, YOU BASTARDS.

Neeebs said...

Did someone call for Spock?

Dusty Baker said...

no shit. put don mattingly in at second base or something.

Paul said...

Neeebs I thought that avatar was Billy Joel.

Josh S. said...

Issue an intentional walk by licking your hand four times.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Send the winning run home on a balk.

Oh wait...

Dr. Geek said...

Switch jerseys!

Jason said...

Switch pants!

Dr. Geek said...

No one wants to switch pants with Steve Lyons.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

His pants are too full of grit.

Dusto_Magnifico said...

Not Entirely Health-6

Kuroda-1

You mean "threat" right?
While Russ isn't better than Loney, he's also probably not better than Lindsey, and is better than Blake.

Dr. Geek said...

That's not grit in his pants...

karina said...

"Not Expecting a Trap"

Jason, I just gave you a standing ovation.

Very well played, sir.

karina said...

Epale, everyone!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So when does the football game start?

rbnlaw said...

MARK LINDSAY WAS THE LEAD SINGER FOR PAUL REVERE AND THE RAIDERS!!!

Only Lindsey reference I could come up with. . .until. . .

LINDSAY CALIFORNIA IS THE OLIVE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD!!!

rbnlaw said...

And this:
Surly factor -1
Indifference factor +10

Dusty Baker said...

***Insta Poll***

Taiwan will:

a) Touch your heart
b) Feel like mimosas
c) Produce illegible print media

MR. F said...

Epale, Karina!

karen said...

Epale Everyone!

@Jason...Loved your line-up

MR. F said...

Epale, Karen!

MR. F said...

I only epale on an individual basis.

Dusty Baker said...

I swear it looked like Kemp missed the ball. But...

...I'll take it!

Good catch, Matt.

Josh S. said...

Epic fuck up by Steiner and Monday. Steiner accidentally called Jamey Carroll Ryan Theriot on that great play. Monday then went on for like a minute praising Theriot's underrated range. Then, almost a full minute later, Charley apologized and said Theriot isn't playing.

Wow!

Dusty Baker said...

Steiner and Monday are on Torre Standard Time.

Josh S. said...

LYNDSY FONSECA IS THE FUTURE DAUGHTER OF TED MOSBY!

(She's also pretty good on the new Nikita.)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

LINDSAY BLUTH IS THE FUTURE OF THE ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT MOVIE

Dusty Baker said...

LINDSAY LOHAN IS A COKED-UP SKANK!

karen said...

LINDSAY DAVENPORT IS A WASHED UP TENNIS PLAYER

rbnlaw said...

LINDSEY GRAHAM IS A SOUTH CAROLINA SENATOR!!!

rbnlaw said...

@DB,
Re: Lohan

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Dusty Baker said...

@RBN

Right. I wasn't passing judgment; just calculating my odds.

Dusty Baker said...

Wow, there were so many directions you might have gone with the Lindsey Graham line,

Spanky said...

How the fuck did Ackbar get doubled up if he is so fast.

DAVID CROSBY IS A COKED OUT SKANK

Dr. Geek said...

DAVID CROSBY IS A SPERM DONOR!

Wait, am I doing this right? (The game, not the sperm donation)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

DAVID CROSBY IS LIONEL HUTZ'S SPONSOR

Steve Sax said...

Hey, we're not losing yet!

Spanky said...

STEVE SAX IS A LHWG WITH A CROOKED ARM

karina said...

I don't want Kuroda to go.

quick poll: Nomo or Kuroda?

karina said...

@Steve Sax 5:54 you say that like they lose all the time

Spanky said...

That's a hard one Karina but I'll go with Kuroda just cause he is newer

Spanky said...

KKemp Walks!

KKemp Walks!

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

NOMO!

Dusty Baker said...

It's funny you said that, Sax. Real email conversation that just happened w Mrs Dusty:

Mrs Dusty: I hope I can come home from work soon. What is the Dodgers score?

Dusty: 0-0 after innings.

Mrs Dusty: Yes!

rbnlaw said...

RBNLAW ALWAYS TAKES THE HIGH ROAD, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO SENATORS AND SPERM DONATION!!!


unless the LCD is funnier, then I totally go there.

rbnlaw said...

BURNING MATTRESSES ARE THE FUTURE OF "PROTESTS" EVERYWHERE!!!

rbnlaw said...

ALL CAPS IS THE FUTURE OF MY COMMENT POSTS!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

What is this strange "high road" you speak of, RBN?

rbnlaw said...

It's something I do for "kicks." Because my kicks keep getting harder to find.

Oooh. Another Mark Lindsay reference!!

rbnlaw said...

So, what's the haps in the game right now, cause I ain't a watchin.

Josh S. said...

@karina 6:00 We DO lose all the time.

This season, at least.

rbnlaw said...

If it's just one guy commenting to himself, is it still "whoring?"

cc: C. Moriyama

Dusty Baker said...

Beer status: Craaaazy!!!!11!!!

Finished last summerish bottle of the season (Red Hook Rope Swing) then opened a Sam Adams Octoberfest.

Haven't imploded....yet.

rbnlaw said...

Fuck it. This whore is out.
Gotta go eat and play softball.

There will be drinking. Oh yes, there will be drinking.

rbnlaw said...

DAMMIT!!

Forgot to get some Rope Swing.

*kicks self*

Spanky said...

RBNLAW IS THE FUTURE OF WHORING!!

Dusty Baker said...

BevMo still has Rope Swing. I really liked it. Jason wasn't a huge fan, but he's jaded.

cc: Jason

karina said...

Dear Dodgers,

Kuroda deserves you score some runs. If he pitches well, it is not enough to win the game.

Spanky said...

Beer Status: EMPTY
Surliness: Rising
Asshole Alert: Defcon 2

karen said...

@karina...Nomo but I don't want to see Kuroda go either

Dusty Baker said...

@Spanky

What is this strange "empty" you speak of?

Josh S. said...

Time to play with my kid. Outtie for now.

Dusty Baker said...

Pack of cards! Playin with a full deck tonight. No joker.

karina said...

Nomo pitched on Venezuelan winter league a couple of seasons ago. I went to the stadium dressed in full Dodgers gear. I gave him two standing ovations (he only picthed 1 1/3 innings).

People stare at me but I didn't care, it was the least I could do. Gotta thanked for the memories.

Spanky said...

Beer Status: Empty is as rare as a Lasorda comment.

Spanky said...

It is also as rare as Spanky watching the Canadian Football League like he is doing at this moment.

STOOPID DODGERS

karen said...

We're ahead!!

We're ahead!!!

karina said...

Admiral Ackbar setting the trap!

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina (per your English lesson request)-

Here is an example of your using "on" when it should have been "in."

"Nomo pitched on Venezuelan winter league a couple of seasons ago."

Spanky said...

Ackbar?!?!

karina said...

Thanks Dusty!

karina said...

My Gameday says Ethier, in play (no out)

karina said...

@Spanky this guy

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Admiral_ackbar

Spanky said...

@ Karina

HaHa, I know who he is I just meant that he made an R.B.I. My Bad. I like seeing a pic of Ackbar anytime.

karina said...

@Spamky hahahaha sorry.

karen said...

Kuroda's breaking alot of bats tonite

Dusty Baker said...

That was a bitch-ass hit. Shouldn't even count as an RBI.

Spanky said...

Spamky say's,


Kuroda has dug himself a ditch

Mr. Customer said...

Evenin', co-conspirators.

Spanky said...

My gameday page had a pic of the cryin' Hawaiian on the bottom right that I could not get rid of that whole inning. FUCKERS

Dusty Baker said...

Epale, Mr. C!

Dusty Baker said...

Tripizzle!

karen said...

Eric Collins isn't driving me crazy like he usually does. Either I'm getting used to him or I'm not paying very good attention.

Probably not paying attention.

karina said...

Mr C shows up and Kemp triples!

coincidence?

karen said...

Howdy Mr.C

karen said...

We're ahead again. Yay.

Spanky said...

Waxing Gibbons

Spanky said...

For some reason I don't like this guy,Mitchell

Mr. Customer said...

@Karina I confess I'd been lurking while keeping tabs on Hiro's bases-loaded jam, and didn't want to say anything for the sake of superstition.

Mr. Customer said...

@DB, karina, karen

Epa, y'all.

Mr. Customer said...

@spanky

The "waxing" and "waning" Gibbons construction still cracks me up.

Yes, I am a dork, why do you ask?

Spanky said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

karina said...

@Mr C I just wanted you to be a lucky charm tonight.

Spanky said...

@ Mr.C

Dude that came from the dark regions of brain matter from when I took astronomy like 15 years ago.

Spanky said...

Beer Status: Prognosis Negative

Dusty Baker said...

In the next several days, I'm going to be on travel. I'll certainly build meetings around the games and GTs as much as I can but I hope I can count on you all to up your snark factor to fill in the void. I know you can do it. Spank, I need you to up your "Oh no he didn't just say that!" factor to make up for the thing sI would normally say in this space.

Lasorda, keep not doing shit.

If anyone has any recommendations for restaurants or bars pls let me know. I have my eye on that Corona Cigar Co. that seems to be the Bass Pro Shops of cigars and booze.

Mmmmm....booze...

Mr. Customer said...

Beer status: Negro Modelo

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Lucky charm? Are you magically delicious?

#CerealCommercialComment

Dusty Baker said...

Damn, Mr C...I've been sucking back Negro Modelos all week. Out now. We ALMOST had beer symmetry.

Mr. Customer said...

DC bound, Dusty?

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

Nope, Orlando, FL. Pfffffftttt.

Spanky said...

For you Dusty I'll let it all hang out,literally.

BE WARNED PEEPS!

karina said...

@Dusty Baker of course I'm magical!

Mr. Customer said...

Yeah, just restocked the fridge today, so your loss was my gain.

karina said...

what's wrong with Orlando, FL?

Dusty Baker said...

Speaking of symmetry, I'm really disappointed that, yesterday, when I posted the 1933 Sept. 9 Bums lineup, no one noted the symmetry of having 1B, 2B, and 3B positions batting next to each other, in that order. That shit was rich!

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Nothing is inherently wrong with Orlando. Just touristy and not a place I'd choose to go on biz. I'd like to go as the aforementioned tourist so I could go to Epcott Center and the new Harry Potter land thingy, but alas, that is not in the barajas for this trip.

Mr. Customer said...

Orlando, FL is America's frenulum.

Mr. Customer said...

Hmm, that may have been a bit strong, but I'm not big on FL in general.

NicJ said...

i thought florida was america's wang.

Spanky said...

@ Dusty

Sorry dude. I was on a roll with the make up of the dodger roster and wrote a comment I deleted that offended even me. It threw me off a bit.

karina said...

New word: frenulum.

@Dusty Baker if you can go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, please have a butterbeer and have a proper toast!

I read lines are getting shorter every day. Have fun and tell me ALL about it :)

Mr. Customer said...

@NicJ

Indeed.

karina said...

I love Florida, boooooooo

NicJ said...

we can break it off and float it on down to Venezuela if you'd like, karina.

Spanky said...

@ nic

Are you sure it is not america's chung

karina said...

@NicJ hahahahahaha, not necessary. At the current rate, Florida will be soon the place with most Venezuelans in the world.

*sigh*

Mr. Customer said...

I may be offensive and crass, but at least I'm teaching karina scientifically correct words for our naughty bits.

Spanky said...

In other news:

Flat Breezy is in

Mr. Customer said...

Can I clear a room, or what?

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, I thought Denver was the place with the most Venezuelans in the US?

Dusty Baker said...

@Spanky

I'm laughing at the notion that you were typing something that even offended you, so you backed out of it.

Mr. Customer said...

@db

Instant regret, but the comment stands.

In other news - shite.

Spanky said...

@ Mr.C

You are the unwanted uncle at the picnic. HaHa

karina said...

@Dusty Baker hahahahaha, Denver is not even close, Isn't tied with Anaheim and Atlanta?

karina said...

I didn't get the "can I clear a room" and the exchange that followed it.

Mr. Customer said...

Look for my tearful "heartfelt apology" to the state of Florida coming up on C-SPAN

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

It was a bit disjointed. Dusty addressed Spanky's comment from 7:28, which I responded to without specifically stating that I had just done the same thing (though I did so in my head).

Steve Sax said...

We are tied

giants and padres tied too

Spanky said...

@ Mr. C

I'll wait till you do "The View"

@ Karina

Can I clear a room means no one wants to be around him so they leave

karina said...

@Mr C thanks! by the way:

isn't it tied...(sometimes I type too fast and eat words, it's the same with Spanish, booooo for me)

karina said...

@Steve Sax tied? my Gameday is slow tonight :(

Mr. Customer said...

I love the drive-by comments by Sax hoping to reign the conversations back into something remotely resembling a Gamethread.

karina said...

refreshed and it IS tied.

:_(

karina said...

@Mr C he likes to keep us in line :)

Mr. Customer said...

@karina, sax

I really do love it, as well as amuse. I always refocus on the game. We know from long experience I am prone to tangents.

Spanky said...

Flat Breezy allowed a run in the 7th to tie.

Saxy's updates are on tape delay

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr C

I'm glad you cleared that up. I was going to have to go into the pensieve to try to divine what conversation thread you were responding to.

Dusty Baker said...

Sax's drive-by, baseball game related comments are the metaphorical kick under the table.

Mr. Customer said...

That's exactly how I take them, and thankfully.

Mr. Customer said...

Waning Gibbons again.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker you're the worst offender of the thread. You mention "pensieve" and my mind starts wandering.

Spanky said...

Come on Tarjetas I don't want to lose again

Dusty Baker said...

Pack of cards, lighting it up!

MDIL has already determined that he is the heart and soul of the team now. Stat-lickers must be rolling over in their graves. If they were deceased.

Spanky said...

Hu sighting

karina said...

You can do this, King James, it's been a while since the last Big Game.

Dusty Baker said...

Hu dat!

Dusty Baker said...

That was for you, MLASF^

karina said...

I'll take that, not a grounder, a GIDP or a K.

Well done!

#celebratingsmallsteps

Spanky said...

MDIL busting out the mad props on Barajas

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What's this about Florida being America's wang?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I do like the Saints.

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASF

I am responsible.

(For the wang, not the Saints)

Mr. Customer said...

Crap.

Dusty Baker said...

Canada: America's hat

Mr. Customer said...

On this we can agree.

Dusty Baker said...

JOSH

WHY HAVEN'T YOU TOLD ME THERE IS A LIGHT SABER APP???

karina said...

That app is old, Dusty.

I don't even have an iPhone but I've played a lot with it.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Does that make South Carolina the bellybutton?

Mr. Customer said...
