Post-Game 151 Thread: Let's Raise A Toast

PADRES 6, DODGERS 0

Let's raise a toast to the 2010 Dodgers. Felled by off-the-field courtroom distractions and a purse as tight as constipated sphincter, the 2010 Dodgers were laid to rest tonight following their 17th shutout of the year (according to the LAT's Steve Dilbeck, MLB's most shutouts). The Dodgers are now 14th of 16 teams in the National League in RBI, attributable at least in part to our hitting coach, who is taking over as manager next year. Good times! Here's to memories of a promising May followed by months of blown opportunities, rampant injuries, and unfulfilled promise of youth.

Drink up!

Stay thirsty.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

In case you missed it:

As a good friend, I heard him out.

THAT'S WHAT GOOD FRIENDS DO, SIMERS. THEY PUBLISH SHIT IN THE LATIMES ABOUT HOW THEY WANT THEIR FRIENDS TO BE FIRED. NOTHING BUT CLASS FROM YOU, YOU OVERWEIGHT, OVERPAID, UNDER-THINKING JACKASS.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't care for Simers.

Steve Sax said...

@Mr LA SF: Just to be clear, is TJ the overweight, overpaid, under-thinking jackass? Or is that the person to which Simers is a good friend?

Mr. Customer said...

Line 'em up.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Torre isn't overweight.

Steve Sax said...

I think *I* could classify as being overweight, overpaid, and underthinking. FWIW.

Steve Sax said...

But I have rhythm.

Who could ask for anything more?

Steve Sax said...

(Who could ask for anything more.)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Don't beat up on yourself. I'm sure you have a slim, girlish figure, Sax.

Josh S. said...

If Sax is overweight, then I'm morbidly obese.

NicJ said...

The shitty season was slightly less shitty while sharing it with you snarky bastards.


Proost!

Josh S. said...

I did have donuts and beer for dessert, so draw your own conclusions.

Josh S. said...

...in his first book wrote about wrote about...

Paul said...

Mmmmmmmm conclusions!

Steve Sax said...

nice proust reference, josh s

Steve Sax said...

@NicJ, I always thought it was "Prost" or "Prosit". Not "Proost".

"I know a little German. He's standing over there."

Steve Sax said...

I know a little German

Josh S. said...

So, I heard the Andre Ethier fleece blanket only makes you feel warm and fuzzy for about a month, and then cold and uncomfortable the rest of the year.

Steve Sax said...

whoops, "he's sitting over there". My bad

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Two months, actually. The one month is the Matt Kemp version.

Dusty Baker said...

I couldn't find you guys...*sniffles*...I was scared.

Dusty up in dis post-game bish now.

Josh S. said...

You're being generous, MLASF.

Dusty Baker said...

MMMMmmmmmm....donuts.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty! I'm surprised you feel lonely.

Miscreants like us don't migrate very far.

Paul said...

In terms of series I guess the Cardinal sweep was the high point and that Philly comeback the lowest?

Wait did i have a Deja Vu?

Dusty Baker said...

@Sax

I was stuck in the GT. I'm lame. I wasn't even stuck in the puzzle maze.

#BearsHumping

Mr. Customer said...

@ Sax

Prosit > German
Proost > Dutch

I will accept both.

Mr. Customer said...

*scurries over to figure out what Dusty was talking about on the GT*

Dusty Baker said...

*humps Loney*

NicJ said...

@Sax - what MR. C said.

Steve Sax said...

@Mr C, Nic J: I didn't realize we were going Dutch on this round.

Shit, now I gotta pay up.

Paul said...

Wind is angry outside and less than 30 minutes of Summer.

Love the next few months.

Pale September - Fiona Apple

I guess two songs for me.

Paul said...

Whatta bunch of Dutch bags.

Steve Sax said...

Dutch boys?

karina said...

From the GT, your musical selections were on fire.

Points for Rbnlaw to mention "It's the End of the World as We Know It (and I feel fine). However, I gotta thank Mr LASF because he came up with what I need to listen today. Gang is all here: Duke, Louis, Bird, Dizzy and Ella.

Nothing seems right today :(
