There Is No Hope

[Sax here.] Yeah, 10 games back in the division and 10 games back in the NL Wild Card race is pretty supermassive. I suppose if the Padres play .500 ball for the rest of the way at 12-13, all we have to do is go 21-2 over our last 23 games in order to tie.

Ooh, baby, don't you know I suffer?

Mr C - I feel like you need to bust out the "You'll Never Walk Alone" for these troubled times.

3 fools are suing the McCourts blaming the divorce for getting beat up at Dodger Stadium. #TMZ

Dusty Baker said...

@Spanky

Were they Doyers fans, or visitors?

Mr. Customer said...

@DB

I say "Ring of Fire" is more thematically appropriate to the second half of the season, but I take your point, sir.

@Dusty, Mr. C: Down In It by Nine Inch Nails works really well for me.

Life is just one crushing defeat after another until you just wish Flanders was dead.

I mean the Giants. And Flanders.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Stoopid Flanders.

All this, and I just read in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette that Ray Winder Field, home to the Travelers for all of my childhood, is close to being sold and demolished now that the team has moved on. That's ok, they're only my favorite childhood memories - crush them like a Matt Stairs HR off of Broxton.

melancholia has taken over.

I was feeling like things would get better.

Paul said...

I have a playoff beard and no playoffs. Sounds stupid to have an end of the season beard.

Paul said...

I have also realized the gray is comming in like the thick low fog on cold winter's night.....with whiskey.


Everything is better with whiskey.

Mr. Customer said...

Paul is slow but surely assuming the guise of the Most Interesting Man in the World.

Paul said...

That is a title of high aspirations. I would settle for Western World.

Also with a little more gray maybe they won't "randomly select" me at airport security checks as much.

Dusty Baker said...

I was just thinking Monday night, after not having shaved since the previous Thursday, that I should grow a playoff beard. I suggested it to Mrs Dusty, who questioned the idea given that we were not likely to be in the playoffs. I replied that someone, in fact several teams, would indeed be in the playoffs, just not likely the Dodgers. Quizzical look from her...I went on to explain that we celebrate birthdays that are not our own, but this was met with increasingly disagreeing looks, so I dropped the discussion for the time being.

Dusty Baker said...

I have hope in my soul.

karina said...

Speak for yourselves.

I believe they can win 21 games and the Padres can play 500 ball

karina said...

Any excuse is a good excuse to grow a beard.

@Dusty Baker isn't it a way to save the stadium? if i sent money to save a trestle in Georgia and it was indeed saved, why not?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

I'll send you the background on the situation. Likely a lost cause but an interesting story.
