Post-Game 154 Thread: The Future Is Now

DODGERS 3, DIAMONDBACKS 1

With apologies to Chad Billingsley and Hong-Chih Kuo, Clayton Kershaw was the only Dodger worth watching in 2010. With nine K's over eight IP tonight, Kershaw has a career-high 212 strikeouts. His ERA+ is actually down to 129 from 142 in 2009, but that won't stop me from predicting he'll be the best thing about the 2011 Dodgers as well.

Party made w/ no helping hand to the Giants.

I approve.

Mr. Customer said...

I thought you'd at least upgrade to a flounder.

Paul said...

Why are we not playing single A guys????

Spanky said...

LOWERED EXPECTATIONS!

karen said...

Oh but to be one of Spanky's neighbors!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Why do I miss the threads where people who never comment actually comment?

Paul said...

If someone offered me a beer. I would think I would check if it is cold sure. I might inquire if there is more and see if the bottle opener is in reach.....so I don't know if I want a beer.


My Torre impression.

Spanky said...

Funny you mentioned that Karen. They have all moved out. Not because of me though.

*rubs chin deviously*

Paul said...

Karen

the more the Dodgers win the lower the property value in spankyville.

Spanky said...

@ MLASF

BECAUSE YOU SUCK!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Spanky's neighbors have to sign an affidavit accepting his exploits when filling out the lease/mortgage.

Paul said...

I hate the Padres.

Spanky said...

Unless they already have a restraining order on me

karen said...

MLASF--It must be like the same rule that says a realtor has to reveal when a suspicious death has taken place on the property. Unsuspecting buyers must be warned about Spank's carp running nudeness.

Paul said...

Where is Dusty and the Prof?

I need to learn some hog chants before tomorrows game.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Exactly, Karen.

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty back up in dis bish.

Dusty Baker said...

"Spank's carp running nudeness" should be the new name for the Juan Pierre's Oversized Hat blog.

Paul said...

The A's have a better record us. The freakin A's!!!!!

Spanky said...

Today a Carp. Tomorrow the World!

Paul said...

SCRN sounds like an awesome band name!

Spanky said...

Are they still in bizness? The juan pierres' that is.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

It's like an even angrier version of Korn.

Spanky said...

Korn ain't angry. That motherfucker is with the maharishi picking flowers and shit.

Paul said...

Fish on a leash- SCRN

Dusty Baker said...

I'm only left with the Galaxy v Red Bulls match now. Woe be the waning days of the baseball season.

Spanky said...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Heading out of town again in the a.m. Hope to be able to jump in and out of the GTs at least a little bit. In the meantime, thought I'd relay a situation from tonight:

[Local MEX cantina]

Arrived a coupla innings into tonight's game. Ordered marg and asked barkeep to tune into the Doyers game. Couple next to me started talking re BoSox game from today but didn't yet know the result. I overheard and told them that Yankmes lost. They thanked me and noted that I'd called for the Doyers to be put on the telly. Then the guy proceeded to give me props for calling for the game even though we are out of contention. Sent us a round on those grounds.

#TrueBlue up in dis bish!

Peace, I'm out. Catch y'all from CHI then DC.

I'm all for Twins, especially blonde Norwegian nubile ones (recently divorced from golfers is also okay)

Dusty Baker said...

Steve Sax said...

One bottle, Fonty's Pool 2008 Pinot Noir, kicked.

Pretty good but needed to breathe.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: safe travels!

Dusty Baker said...

I should pack, instead of drinking more beer.

Paul said...
