Game 158 Thread: Sept 28 @ Rox, 5:30p

Hiroki Kuroda (11-13, 3.27) vs. Jeff Francis (4-6, 4.71).

id=

COMMENTS: One day, perhaps a few months from now, I'll realize that even a meaningless regular-season game can be something to look forward to. However, I do not feel that way today. Is it bad that I'm looking forward to this weekend's Padres-Giants matchup more than anything the Dodgers are doing? Ugh.

No doubt. At least we can enjoy the Rox misery if they're eliminated.

Josh S. said...

Harris 3B
Gibson CF
Daniels LF
Murray 1B
Brooks RF
Scioscia C
Samuel 2B
Griffin SS
Cook P

Mr. Customer said...

Fuck yeah, Kal Daniels.

Josh S. said...

Lineup via @jimmurray

Steve Sax said...

Bill Murray in cleanup?

Seems like Groundhog Day for this whole season.

QuadSevens said...

I gave Lenny Harris my little league baseball card at a mall signing once.

Steve Sax said...

Mel Brooks in right field?

I've got High Anxiety.

QuadSevens said...

Kathy Griffin playing shortstop for us seems like a mistake.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I thought Blake Griffin played for the Clippers?

Mr. Customer said...

I thought it was Peter Griffin.

Josh S. said...

I thought it was an actual griffin.

(Wait, there is no such thing as an "actual" griffin.)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I see Brooks is in the lineup, but where's Dunn?

Mr. Customer said...

Lack of opposable thumbs would be a defensive liability.

MR. F said...

So Josh S. and others who use iPods or whatever.

Since Apple didn't announce a new iPod Classic, can one assume that there will be no new iPod Classic this year? My current iPod seems to be dying and I may be in need of a replacement (the fancy iPod touches don't have enough capacity for me).

karen said...

Epale Ladies and Gentlemen!

I'm somewhat ashamed to say that I too am more jazzed about the Pods-hated ones series this weekend

Steve Sax said...

@Mr F: your current iPod is dying?

(cries)

MR. F said...

@Sax,
Yeah. I've probably dropped it too many times (I'm very clumsy). The problem is I don't know if it'll keep going for months in its semi-broken state or if it'll die any second.

There are times when it works fine and times when the hard drive makes funny sounds and has trouble seeking. Yesterday while I was playing a song, I tried pressing "menu." It took like 20 seconds for the menu to actually show up.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'm strongly considering unfollowing Molly Knight at this point.

Mr. Customer said...

Epale y'all.

What's shakin'?

karen said...

Epale Mr. Customer

We're a quiet group in here tonite

Steve Sax said...

This is Kuroda's last start of the season...

Steve Sax said...

Wait. Dodgers.com says it's Hiro's second-to-last start, so I guess he goes in the finale (thursday is an off-day)

Mr. Customer said...

@MLASF

I judge all tweets based on whether they are more or less frivolous/annoying than whatever Dylan Hernandez is talking about. In this case, I'll take the navel-gazing.

Mr. Customer said...

Hmm. We're losing, I see.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Mr C - I for one welcome our new buffalo testicle overlords.

Mr. Customer said...

Hi Karen!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Kemp'd?

Josh S. said...

Kemp'd...in a good way.

WHAT? BEARD?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FUCKING JUICED BALL IS NOT BULLSHIT

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

JEFF FRANCIS IS THE FUTURE OF TRIPLE-A COLORADO SPRINGS

Mr. Customer said...

…and now we're not losing.

Hooray!

Josh S. said...

@Mr F: Yeah, the existing iPod classic is not getting updated, as far as I know. Even if they do, it would likely be a capacity bump, but no new features. If the current capacity is enough, then you don't need to worry.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Yeah, I can't see how the classic iPod could get any updates past memory. Besides, who needs more than 160 GB? I have a 30 GB that's not even half-way filled.

karen said...

Wow! I step out for a few minutes to walk my dogs and the Dodgers actually muster up an offense:)

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale y'all
Tuned in to see that we lead. Hoping for another win tonight.

MeanieBreanie said...

Rancho Ardiendo!

karen said...

Epale MB!!

MeanieBreanie said...

Rancho impodiendo :(

MeanieBreanie said...

^implodiendo

MeanieBreanie said...

Hi Karen, it's rather quiet in here tonight.

karina said...

Epale everyone!

just came back from my first class for the IELTS test.

I'm scared, I wanted to run away screaming "I SPEAK AMERICAN ENGLISH"

and I have mean gentlemen as classmates :(

MeanieBreanie said...

Welcome Karina,
You just stated your feelings extremely well. I think they will get the message.

karina said...

We are winning 5-2!

MR. F said...

Thanks Josh S.

MeanieBreanie said...

Yes we are! Tonight's motivational song is from the Black Eyed Peas - I Gotta Feeling.

karen said...

Epale Karina!!

What is IELTS?

Mr. Customer said...

Ladies representing tonight.

Epa, MB y Karina.

MeanieBreanie said...

And a big howdy to you Mr. C

karina said...

@karen It's an standard English test for non-native speakers, performed by the University of Cambridge. It is used if you want to emigrate or study to any English-speaking country other than the US.

I'm going to study Grad School in the US but since my plan D is to study in Australia, I chose to take that test.

The hard part is the listening unit: we could get different accents: scottish, welsh, south african, australian (which it is a lock).That's why I wanted to run away screaming the aforementioned phrase.

Being a brit-pop won't be very helpful, unless they evaluate lyrics or who's hotter:Graham Coxon or Damon Albarn :(

I should have gone for the TOEFL

MR. F said...

That is the more important question, Karina... Graham or Damon?

karina said...

Hello Mr C.

By the way, Meanie and karen: they split the group and for a few minutes I was the only woman between ten men. My teacher asked she could take another woman from the other group if I felt intimated. I told her I wasn't but she could take another woman if she liked.

Then, a very pretty woman entered the classroom and a COUPLE of guys said at the same time: we needed a woman in here! what am I? invisible?

To my consolation, their accent is awful, Manny could teach them a thing or two when actually speaking English.

It wasn't the only mean thing they did to me :(

Mr. Customer said...

How rude.

MeanieBreanie said...

Karina, keep your head held high. Just remember that what goes around comes around.

Mr. Customer said...

Also, I just very nearly spilled a full beer all over my couch.

karen said...

@Karina--Very impressive girlfriend!! Where in the US do you want to study?

karina said...

Dear Dodgers management,

Since we didn't keep Lowe, Master Wolf and Garland, can we keep Kuroda, please?

yours truly,

karina

karina said...

@karen so far, it's either SoCal or Georgia.My dad was talking to me about Houston, because I have a cousin living there alone, he just got divorced.He's afraid I'm going to live alone, not that he's overprotective ;)

karen said...

@Karina--I'm with MB...keep your head held high and remember karma can be a real bitch

karina said...

@Mr C what made you to spill the beer?

Go Dre!

karina said...

and he just struck out...

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

Just my clumsy self. Knocked it off the table getting up. Fortunaltely, the beer was saved. Oh, and my couch is ok, too.

karina said...

@Mr F tough call...maybe, this is NOT a definitive answer, but I'd go for Coxon, mainly because he wears the nerdy glasses and seems to take showers every dayyy ;)

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr C, glad to know that disaster was averted. If I keep drinking this Glenlivet Nadurra no telling what will happen.

karina said...

I like Mr C's priorities: first the beer, then the couch.

karina said...

^day

MR. F said...

Hang in there Karina. I'll try to do the same.

I'd go with Graham myself... if I were into guys...

Mr. Customer said...

@MB

Got to love a woman that appreciates quality. I've never quite acquired a taste for the glenlivet, though. (it's a personal failing)

I will have myself a wee bit o' the old usquebaugh in solidarity, however.

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr. C,
Variety is the spice of life. You've got to go with what you like. This Glenlivet is not my favorite but the store was out of the Scotch I prefer so I thought I would give this a try. Luckily I have friends that will be more than happy to imbibe so it won't sit in the cabinet for too long.

Mr. Customer said...

Loney gets his!

Josh S. said...

SUCK IT MR. ROGERS!

karen said...

Hooray King James!!

Steve Sax said...

FJL gets number 10!

Josh S. said...

That was a Captain Kangaroo quote, btw.

karina said...

Long Live the KING!

I kneel before your presence, Royal Highness

Steve Sax said...

FJL gets number 10!

MeanieBreanie said...

Why couldn't we have scored like this earlier in the season? SIGH

Josh S. said...

It's Damon all the way, for Mrs. S.

Mr. Customer said...

@MB

Glenmorangie is my go-to, but I've got a Laphroaig stashed away that needs attention.

MeanieBreanie said...

Mr C, We do have good taste. I'm partial to the Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban. I am rather limited on my knowledge of Scotch. There are so many to try. Maybe with time and experience I will expand my palate a bit.

MeanieBreanie said...

YIKES! we can't let these guys get back in the game.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GOAL!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GOAL!

karen said...

Yay! AZ scored a run in frisco. We make small party!!

karina said...

My dad should meet you, God knows he loves his scotch, but to tell the truth he doesn't drink anything you mention.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That's not a double post. Kings score two goals in the span of seconds.

Mr. Customer said...

Fack.

karen said...

Beli not impressing me much

karina said...

Belisario, since you are no longer playing for Aguilas or Tiburones, expect lots of boos :(

MeanieBreanie said...

OMG, can't believe this is happening but then again I can.

Josh S. said...

OUR BULLPEN ROOLS YOURS DROOLS

Mr. Customer said...

@mb

Scotch is personal. One likes what one likes.

@karina

That would be a great honor!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Fuck, Houston loss, so we gain no ground.

Spanky said...

BAM!

FUCK YOU BELISARIO YOU PIECE OF SHIT!


Epale Fools!

MR. F said...

We're tied? Oy.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

TIME FOR KEN BURNS

Spanky said...

Oh Snap! Ladies night

Booze is on me. All over me

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GOAL!

karina said...

@Mr C hahahahaha, I'd love to see that since my dad doesn't speak any English. Well, maybe Casablanca taught us something: drunkards are a race beyond languages and geographical boundaries.

Spanky said...

What's new MB?

karina said...

So, this is spring training or what? a Dodgers pitcher facing a Dodgers hitter?

Spanky said...

@ karina

HaHa Gameday action

karina said...

Ellis is the man of the hour!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Keith Olbermann is identified as "Broadcaster."

karina said...

in play (runs)

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spanky said...

There it is!

MeanieBreanie said...

We score we make party!

Spanky said...

Dotel hasn't lost a thing.

Mr. Customer said...

To think those poor bastards WANTED Dotel.

Spanky said...

Hey Hey! It's on

el montanero said...

kings are buzzing. dammit. just once would love to see the kings and dodgers make serious playoff runs in the same year. i wish i cared more about the lakers.

el montanero said...

scooooooore!

MeanieBreanie said...

Hello Spank,
Trying to pick up the ladies eh? You charmer you.

Mr. Customer said...

…which leads me to the fact that WE wanted him first.

SHIT.

karina said...

@Spanky we deserve some good karma from these disastrous bullpen.

MeanieBreanie said...

Come on Dre, knock em in.

karina said...

@Meaniebreanie don't speak in plural, we all know you are Spanky's one and only ;)

Mr. Customer said...

Speaking of drunkards, where the hell are those guys?

Did the season suddenly become that much more tragic that they couldn't bear it?

Spanky said...

I'm just trying to be a gentleman the only way I know how MB

karina said...

@Mr C that's your ace behind your sleeve, anytime Dusty demands you to get a girlfriend ;)

karen said...

8-6 here, 2-0 in frisco. We make big party!!!

Mr. Customer said...

Verdict: Laphroaig is damn tasty.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karina
I'm not so sure. I'm a magnet for married men and players.

Spanky said...

Get a hold of yourself Mr.C. We shall carry on.

(takes a large,large swill from a forty)

Spanky said...

@ MB

Then your in luck. I've never been married nor do I play around.

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

I'll accept that from Dusty.

In wino, veritas. (or something like that;)

karen said...

MB--If you added old, old men to that line-up I'd say you were talking about me

karina said...

Sherrill against CarGo

*shakes head*

MeanieBreanie said...

Spank
You just grabbed my heart, not married and monogamous. Why do I have this feeling that in real life I am probably old enough to be your mother.

karina said...

@Meaniebreanie @karen I'm sorry girls. I get the creepy and horny ones :( ewwwwwwwwww

el montanero said...

@mr. c laphroaig is fan-bloody-tastic! my old boss had a 15-year old bottle that he shared with me and another co-worker at the company x-mas party...it was a religious experience.

Spanky said...

Flat Breezy struck out CarGo!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

MeanieBreanie said...

Scary, Flat Breezy at the helm.

karina said...

@Spanky yay?

by the way, I admire the fact you're monogamous

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karina and Karen
Aren't they all horny? If they aren't I would seriously worry about them. Would you want one who wasn't?

karina said...

That CarGo K against Sherrill is going to give material to some people I know.

el montanero said...

dotel is still wearing his l.a. cap in his mlb.com profile photo. *shudders* so glad he's gone.

karen said...

The dynamic duo of Sherrill and Broxton again.

What could go wrong?

Mr. Customer said...

@EM

It's definitely going in my rotation.

Spanky said...

@MB

Because the other times you followed your feelings they failed. Let's just say I've dated mature women and I had to let them go because they were immature. I'm 38 by the way.

MeanieBreanie said...

@The Ladies
Creepy and old we can do without unless they are about 90+ and loaded. Anna Nicole Smith was no dummy.

Mr. Customer said...

Gahd, our 'pen is terrible.

karen said...

@Spanky--I'm with karina and MB...it is way cool that you are a one woman man. There aren't enough out there.

@MB--Horny is good :)

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
I have a few years on you but I'm definitely not old enough to be mom. The last one I dated was your age. It was disastrous. I take it back; we had a great time and great chemistry until he fessed up he was married. Horror of horrors, while I was out with him he had a wife and 2 kids at home. Needless to say it ended very abruptly. Like you said, everything has to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. I've done best in serious relationships with men my age or slightly older but you young guys sure can be fun!

karina said...

@Meaniebreanie well, if I'm interested, too fast is a deal breaker.

if I'm not interested, please GET AWAY from me, don't ask anything, I don't have time for that, I'm ignoring you, ewwwww.

No matter how loaded the man in question is, that's a NO too. In fact, I tend to be attracted to younger men.

karina said...

Rancho Ardiendo and this is too dangerous.

Spanky said...

Throw a strike asshole

Betsy said...

Epale friends, just passing by to see how pissed we are..

Mr. Customer said...

Yo. Strike zone is over here, asshole.

Spanky said...

Unfuckingbelievable

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karina
I joke about it but my friends will tell you I'm so not a gold digger. I have walked away from men who could have given me a very good life.

There is one that has expressed interest and he told me that he would be very generous with me. He is worth at least 100 million, private jet, several houses but I'm not interested. He is 65 which is way too old for me and he smokes. In addition, women throw themselves at him for his money. He has about 7 women on the hook. I don't want to be one of many. I'm appetizer, main course, and dessert ;-)

Spanky said...

RANCHO JURASSIC PARKIENDO

MeanieBreanie said...

This is way too close for my liking. We need some insurance runs.

karen said...

Epale Betsy!!

Josh S. said...

I knew we could count on non-union Mexican equivalent Ryan Spilborgo.

MeanieBreanie said...

Hey Betsy, The mood has been pretty upbeat. Let's hope we win and it stays that way.

MR. F said...

Nice one, Spanky.

karina said...

Hello Betsy!

@Meaniebreanie I know you were joking!

"I'm appetizer, main course, and dessert".I hear you, sister.

Now we made this GT into a women's magazine relationship column!

Josh S. said...

Oh yes it's ladies night, and the feeling's right...

Spanky said...

Oh what a night

Josh S. said...

BEARD BEARD

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

All the guys are watching the 10th Inning.

karen said...

There's your insurance run, MB!!

karina said...

Fear el Poder de la Barba!

MeanieBreanie said...

Beard bring it on home!

MeanieBreanie said...

^ brings

MR. F said...

Tengo miedo, siempre.

Josh S. said...

Are we humidor are we dancer?

karina said...

injury delay? tell me it's not either CarGo or King James

Spanky said...

Fuck the 10th inning. Nothing but Yankee and Red Sox love and shit I already know. i wish i had those 2 hours back

karen said...

I wanted to watch 10th Inning but I'm at my mom's tonite and she rules the remote!

Josh S. said...

I'm a guy. I'm watching, well, Gameday at the moment.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So far, outside of the introduction, there's been nothing about the Yankees and Red Sox. It's on the 94 strike right now.

karina said...

He's a concentrate of grit and hustle, our Admiral Ackbar

Spanky said...

I want a Royal Flush you card holding bastard.

Josh S. said...

I hope they put Spanky's review on the DVD box.

karen said...

@Spank--Now I don't feel so bad about missing it.

Crap--Giants are tied with AZ.

Spanky said...

Keep watching holmes

karina said...

Reasons to move out to the US: I can get to watch things like "Tenth Inning".

who cares about an education, anyway?

Spanky said...

@ Josh

Expect it on the Chinese bootleg copy of Wall Street 2

MR. F said...

I wish I were as good at the lame puns as you, Josh S.

karina said...

Disclaimer for the guys: in spite of our extreme femininity, we only infiltrated a couple of GTs: the one when we talked about fashion and no fattening foods in the stadium and this one.

MeanieBreanie said...

@karina
Notice no one has publicly complained. They won't admit it but they are curious about us and take it all in.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Rob Dibble is wonders what sale you're all talking about, and where your husbands are.

Rob Dibble is also demanding more hustle from the workers at the unemployment offices.

karina said...

I want to watch Wall Street too, the wardrobe from the pics I saw is worth the admission.

I'm looking forward to Watchmen 2, TinTin and the Smurfs.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn you, extraneous "is."

karina said...

Meaniebreanie, they complained when we talked about fashion

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There's a Watchmen 2?

I think Alan Moore just punched a baby.

el montanero said...

@karina...the site is just that much better thanks to the feminine touch you guys provide.

kings scooooooore!

Spanky said...

@ Karina

I'm not complaining.I'm taking notes.

MR. F said...

I think Alan Moore just bought a grave so he could roll over in it.

MR. F said...

I, for one, welcome our new feminine overlords.

MR. F said...

Or is it overladies?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Manny and Thome!

Josh S. said...

Why is Dylan Hernandez randomly attacking Ron Washington via Twitter?

el montanero said...

ovarylords?

MeanieBreanie said...

To all the guys: Thanks for letting the ladies let their hair down tonight. We promise we won't hijack the threads on a regular basis.

Mr. Customer said...

No disclaimer necessary, GTs are tangent-friendly.

karina said...

El Montanero and Spanky just earned LOTS of points in my book.

Spanky said...

Overladies. Out of respect i won't go there.


But I want too.

Spanky said...

Fuck it 200 Fools!
