I believe ya.

On the other hand, I've thought about it, and now I want him to be stuck at 19, purely for schadenfreude reasons.

Mr. Customer said...

If it weren't for the solace of the game threads, these last few games would seem like a real chore to get through.

Josh S. said...

Lower back strain SS
Plantar Fasciitis 2B
Broken pinky RF
Hamstring cramp 1B
Lower back spasms CF
Broken hand 3B
Calf strain LF
Labral tear C
Bulging disk P

Josh S. said...

Lineup culled from this list.

(I don't even remember Manny's sore toe.)

Josh S. said...

The dreaded sore calf has taken another victim: Jay Gibbons.

Are these guys not stretching?

Mr. Customer said...

Becerros malos?

Mr. Customer said...

For the record, I know they're the other kind.

Mr. Customer said...

Jesus H, it's quiet around here.

MR. F said...

Yeah, a little too quiet.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What's there to talk about?

MR. F said...

Dunno if this has been mentioned yet, but Jon Weisman points out:

The worst teams in baseball since the All-Star break:

24-43, .358 Kansas City
24-43, .358 Seattle
25-42, .373 Pittsburgh
26-42, .382 Los Angeles
28-39, .418 New York Mets
28-39, .418 Washington

Josh S. said...

It's hoooooootttttt...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

How hot is it?

rbnlaw said...

Suck it, Frank.

karen said...

Greetings All!

I know the Pods are playing the Cubbies today. Are the hated ones off?

rbnlaw said...

This guy is genius.

@DodgersGM

Finished batting practice here in Colorado. Kemp went 0-4 with 3 Ks and a caught stealing. #Dodgers #Rockies #MLB

rbnlaw said...

Apparently power is out in some parts of LA right now. We in Anaheim are cranking the AC and using our electric ovens at the same time.

rbnlaw said...

@MLASF
What's your caption?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's so hot, the team is crowding around Matt Kemp during batting practice just to feel the rush of air after each whiff.

Wait, they're in Denver? Dammit.

Steve Sax said...

There goes the no-hitter, Ubaldo!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The game started? Wow, I AM that apathetic.

MR. F said...

It's okay Mr. LASF. I'm just pathetic.

Mr. Customer said...

"what's there to talk about?"

Like it stopped us before.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We take the lead. Woo.

Josh S. said...

A lead? The hell?

MR. F said...

I see what you all mean with Vin and his love of all things Tulowitzki.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

just came home, busy day and I woke up late, I've been in a rush all day!

Fred's Brim said...

howdy yall

Fred's Brim said...

Ubaldo looks like Drake

karina said...

you mean, Drake who was Jimmy in Degrassi? yeah, I watch Degrassi, so what?

#guiltypleasures

Fred's Brim said...

i was always an Ellie fan. She and Sean were a good couple

Fred's Brim said...

Beardorama!

karina said...

Sean helped Ellie to be the awesome girl she became, that couple rocked, but nothing like Liberty and JT </3 :_(

karen said...

Epale Karina!

Howdy FB!

Fred's Brim said...

RIP JT!!!

Fred's Brim said...

Good evening, Karen!

Fred's Brim said...

ooh I saw JT in this commercial the other day

karen said...

Cargo gets a hold of one!

NicJ said...

damn that CarGo and his inflated Coors Field stats.

karina said...

My Gameday says Carlos Gonzalez in play (runs). Does it mean he hit a HR?

Fred's Brim said...

damn that CarGo and his inflated facing-Ted-Lilly-throwing-meatballs stats.

karen said...

@Karina--Yep, that's what it means

karina said...

NicJ, are you trying to pick up a fight with me? ;)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

He has 26 homers in Denver! As Timmeh would say, fucking juiced ball's bullshit.

karina said...

Fred's Brim: is that really JT? he actually looks younger.

I cried like a baby in the episode of JT's memorial. I also cried in the episode when most of the gang graduated from Degrassi,when Emma and Liberty fought over Derek, they made up and then went with Manny and Toby to JT's commemorative place and made a little graduation ceremony, just for him :_(

karina said...

Dre, my pinky is better than yours :)

NicJ said...

rodgers with the garbage INT.

excellent.

Spanky said...

I could be wrong but I swear that is Flo in the new episode of House

Spanky said...

It is Flo!

karina said...

Kemp'd

Fred's Brim said...

I know what you mean, karina - so sad :( I was shocked when JT got stabbed, and I don't get shocked by TV shows

I was actually disappointed with the graduation episode - it should have been a 2-hour movie. We just watched them go from 7th grade through 12th grade and they just rushed through it.
They were too focused on the newer characters. They should have given them the episode off and dedicated it to friends we made over the past 6 years.

Mr. Customer said...

Clinging to the 2-1 lead, and unless Matt Forte loses his mind, I'm toast.

Fred's Brim said...

@karina what is up with your pinkie? are you turning into a smurf?

Fred's Brim said...

can we switch back to where it says Dodgers on our road jerseys?

Mr. Customer said...

Oh, come on...

Steve Sax said...

Orel is firing up the Degrassi thread now

Fred's Brim said...

right on

Jay Hogarth was the best character on the show

karina said...

@Fred's Brim from what I know, they started making Degrassi movies with the new characters. You're right, they just let go those characters too easy. For starters, I think we could have much more of Paige, Ashley, Ellie and Marco (can't get enough from the last two).

I haven't seen those movies, we're a couple of seasons behind in Latin America, because MTV stopped broadcasting Degrassi. It's not on Nickelodeon LA either.

I have my fingers crossed that I can watch those movies in the channel where I can watch Degrassi. I do know Emma and Spinster got married in a nice wedding and Manny performed there.

I was like OMG OMG OMG

Mr. Customer said...

I thought this was the Degrassi thread.

Mr. Customer said...

Steiner and Monday getting the giggles.

Fred's Brim said...

Emma and Spinner? WTF? I totally missed that. Last I saw, Spinner was with Jane

Steve Sax said...

Orel is firing up the Degrassi thread now

karina said...

Jay rocks, I'm so pulling he and Manny get together again. Don't tell me!

Sorry Sax and Mr C, but I never get to talk about Degrassi with anyone.I wonder why (rhetorical question)

Fred's Brim said...

Jay is awesome. That episode where Emma "earns" her wristbands, I almost fell out of my chair

Mr. Customer said...

No worries, I'm just teasing, K.

Fred's Brim said...

Is Wallach up from Albuquerque now?

Steve Sax said...

Theriot sucks.

Fred's Brim said...

Bill from Freaks and Geeks is on Hawaii 5-0

Spanky said...

I'm more interested in the Degrassi thread than the Dodger game.

Fred's Brim said...

@Sax - you got that right

karina said...

@Fred's Brim it was on the last movie.I also know they got married first on Vegas, a sort of a drunk spur of the moment thing. I don't know much because I don't know how those two were in Vegas in the first place. I mean, it's a long way from Canada...

I'm loving Jane right now...let's leave it like that.

You know what couple needed more quality time on screen? Paige and Alex

karina said...

OMG, why don't you go and start a Degrassi blog?

karina said...

I'm not comfortable with a 2-1 lead in late innings.

Fred's Brim said...

ooh definitely! I always liked Alex - she was mean like Jay but she came around too

karen said...

I know nothing about Degrassi. I feel so old :(

karina said...

Fred's Brim, we had elections yesterday in Venezuela. We have our pinkies tinted to avoid "fraud". Isn't it like that in the US?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Karina - Then you really shouldn't be rooting for a team with a terrible bullpen and offense.

Fred's Brim said...

Lilly really only at 81 pitches? Maybe we won't have to see the bullpen

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We still have to see the terrible offense.

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

Nope, the polling workers just mark your name on the voter registry, at least in California.

NicJ said...

no win for ubaldo!!

sucker.

karina said...

@Mr LASF it's too late to root for another team...I'll be always a Dodgers fan and I do want them to win all the games.

NicJ said...

@karina, so are people in Venezuela without hands allowed to vote?

Fred's Brim said...

@karina - they don't take election fraud as seriously here in the US ;)

that's cool the ink was Dodger blue!

karina said...

@Mr C that's incredible. Besides the tinted pinkies, we get to stamp out thumbs TWICE, first time it's registered electronically before we enter the voting place. Then we stamp the thumb on ink and leave our signature, before we vote. After voting, you get your pinky tinted and still there's fraud :(

Mr. Customer said...

We just cut directly to electronic voter fraud here.

karina said...

@NicJ that's a great question. On paper, they should be able to vote but I don't know how they could register the vote, given you need your hands throughout the process. I'm going to find out the answer.

Spanky said...

Who's running the government?
Tammany Hall

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

"you need your hands throughout the process"

I think Bishop Eddie Long was accused of saying the same thing.

karen said...

Mr.C--and hanging chads

Fred's Brim said...

Tammy Hall? I went to high school with her. Who knew she'd become so important?

Mr. Customer said...

@karen

I distinguish between fraud and incompetence, but yes.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I think Boss Tweed plays for the Football Giants.

karina said...

@karen btw, you are not old because you do not watch Degrassi. Fred's Brim and I are immature adults who enjoy teenage soap operas :)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Stoopid Bears.

Mr. Customer said...

Matt, Matt, Matt...

karen said...

Kemp'd yet again

Fred's Brim said...

Dotel makes me sick. I just reminds me of this stupid season and those dumbass trades

Spanky said...

LFP has a pic of the Dodgers strikeout leaders.

Kemp is second between Kershaw and Billz

karen said...

Karina--Thank you...I feel better now!!

Mr. Customer said...

Degrassi and 19th c. machine politics. With a bit of baseball thrown in. Just another night at SoSG.

karina said...

@Spanky it's better I don't give you an answer. Answer is full of hate and frustration. It's the only thing that makes me curse like a sailor .

Anyway, I'm confident this is until 2012. In my state, we voted 13 congressmen out of the 16 possible places. Go Zulia!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It gets even stranger when the ward bosses join the kids from Degrassi and play baseball.

Fred's Brim said...

@karen - there is no age limit on Degrassi!

Mr. Customer said...

Balls. Unless something drastic happens, I'll see you at 1-2 tomorrow, MLASF.

Spanky said...

@ Karina

My heart goes out to you and your Peeps from Venezuela

NicJ said...

did we ever find out the PTBNL on the Dotel trade?

I hope its Tulo.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

My Bishop Eddie Long jokes and I will be waiting, Mr C.

NicJ said...

NOOOOOOOOO stupid bears are giving the ball back to rodgers too quick!!!!!

Spanky said...

Those doctor's from House are the worse. Always trying to kill people.

Mr. Customer said...

Blake with the wheels.

Fred's Brim said...

the Rockies' equipment manager is at the souvenir stands buying baseballs for the bottom of the 9th

karina said...

@Spanky thank you very much!hopefully this nightmare has a date of expiration. Let's see what happens in the next 100 days, before the new Congressional period starts.

karina said...

doble Barba! :)

Fred's Brim said...

nice bunt, now get him home!

Mr. Customer said...

Apodaca.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm watching Chuck now, if anyone wishes to engage in banter.

Fred's Brim said...

why doesn't Jim Tracy get blamed for the Rockies taking the first half off every season?

Fred's Brim said...

is Chuck the one with the guy named Charles in it?
I always thought Nicole Eggert was cute

Fred's Brim said...

attaboy AJ!

karina said...

@karen to our credit, Kevin Smith is a huge fan of the show and he even starred in a few episodes. Classic TV for me.

This Degrassi is a sequel from an eponymous series in the 80's.

It's addictive, I tell you and I should shut up because I don't wanna look like a geek, or is it too late for that? ;)

Mr. Customer said...

I'll be damned.

Spanky said...

Hey Hey! More Runs

Fred's Brim said...

@karen - DVR a few episodes and watch a few in a row - you will be hooked!

Josh S. said...

What was the delay? Coors-branded beach ball?

karina said...

AJ Ellis,Bills and Kershaw (aka Public Enemy Number One) are the best thing about the Dodgers in a while.

karen said...

Karina and FB--Did someone say that Degrassi is on MTV?

Fred's Brim said...

Joey B! I've missed you

karina said...

@karen it was on MTV Latin America. That's where I started watching it, a while ago.In fact, that was the last show I watched there. I couldn't care less for that channel now (speaking of getting old)

Fred's Brim said...

@karen - they are on TeenNick a lot

NicJ said...

who would of thought of all the RB's i have LDT is the only one who is healthy.

rats.

karina said...

HCK time!

Fred's Brim said...

this should be a fun matchup

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I like how Smackdown is on SyFy now. It's like they're embracing how fake it is.

Fred's Brim said...

there's a TuLo chant now?

Fred's Brim said...

HCK you are a nasty SOB

Mr. Customer said...

Dodgers win!

Josh S. said...

Ubal-D'oh!: Dodgers Deny Jimenez 20th Win

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASF

Don't get me started on SyFy, speaking of incompetence.

Fred's Brim said...

good win, everybody!

gnite all - off to dream about Manny Santos!

karen said...

We make small party

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Sharktopus was a masterpiece.

karina said...

we make party!

Josh S. said...

I have Sharktopus recorded. I watched a little this morning. "OHHH NOOOO! NOT LIKE THIS!"

MR. F said...

Can we make party?

karina said...

@Fred's Brim hahahahahahahahahahaha you know how inappropriate, unpolitical correct and funny is that?

Spanky said...

*runs out the front door naked holding a sea bass

karina said...

@karen @Mr F there's no short excuse to make a party.

just because the title is what I feel about the Dodgers, the song drives me to the dancefloor and the performer is a mad genius:

Amor Verdadero-Willie Colon

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

A shark crossbred with an octopus? What could go wrong!

NicJ said...

does it bother anyone else that you have to wait until tomorrow to set your fantasy lineup?

am i obsessed?

karina said...

@NicJ I feel your pain too.

Mr. Customer said...

Now THAT is a fish with which a man can proudly run down the street starkers.

Mr. Customer said...

Stoopid Bears.

Spanky said...

I still say you can't go wrong with Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus.

Movie Gold

Josh S. said...

5 more wins for a .500 finish!

Josh S. said...

Huh. Maybe the guy rocking the Packers avatar should have watched the Packers game.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You would assume, Josh.

Mr. Customer said...

Who can argue with the brilliance that is Sharktopus? My disdain for SyFy is based on their desire to murder every promising series they produce in it's sleep.

NicJ said...

The Wizards opened their training camp at midnight? weird.

Go AmMo!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I should have known better than to ask Molly Knight a serious question. Fool me once...

NicJ said...

crowd at the wizards camp seems to like ammo.

NicJ said...

that helton joke wasnt even funny.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up...Padres lose btw

Mark said...

Im a "dying" Colorado fan! Thought we would have another Rocktobe. Fort Collins Chiropractor

Fred's Brim said...

you wanted another Rocktobe, but you got knofed in the robs. Serves you right for being a Rockies fan who posts ads on blogs
