Thursday Notes, Mixed Bag Edition

  • The scout who played a major role in Andre Ethier coming to the Dodgers has died. Longtime scout LaMacchia dies at 89 (Ken Gurnick, Dodgers.com)
  • Ladies, MeanieBreanie is looking out for you:
    This might not be newsworthy to you but your lady SoSG readership might appreciate this. FOX Sports just came out with their list of baseball’s sexiest players. There are 4 Dodgers who made it:

    1. Brad Ausmus
    2. Matt Kemp
    3. Andre Ethier
    4. And my personal favorite in the eye candy department - Scott Podsednik.
    [...]

    I strongly disagree on the A-Rod pick as does one of my good friends. Her quote “God, he is so UGLY”.

Thanks Orel. Flipping through those pics just made the morning coffee a whole lot more enjoyable :D

Do you think Matty really wears black Chucks?

Steve Sax said...

Does Chuck wear black mats?

Josh S. said...

Chuck wears black Chucks.

Spanky said...

I'd do S.Pod.

Evan said...

Brad effing Ausmus??

That is all.

rbnlaw said...

Ausmus repping the over 40 crowd, so stick it, Junior.

Matt Kemp: Sexiest man in the bigs, except when facing a slider, down and away. Then he looks like a schoolboy playing wiffle-ball with a short bat.

Where's the love for Padilla?

He's one cute Battle Toad, no?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Vicente Padilla: Sexiest Spaghetti Western villain

MeanieBreanie said...

@Neeebs
Women don't desire toads. Believe me, there are plenty of them in this world.

@Spank
Leave the hot men alone. There's enough competition as it is :D

Neeebs said...

@MB: You know what happens when you kiss a toad, don't you?

MeanieBreanie said...

@Neeebs
ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! I've kissed a few toads in my time. Where is my prince?

rbnlaw said...

*waits for Spanky's snappy answer*

Spanky said...

Here it is RB:

@ MB

A toad kissing a toad produces that result

(runs for cover under a lilypad)

Fred's Brim said...

haha we got ourselves a regular Billy Dee Williams here!

Well, one that drinks Steel Reserve instead of Colt 45 anyway :)

Steve Sax said...

Did someone say lilypads?

(read this comment again after 4:10p)

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
That's not what you said the other evening. I suggest you stay under that lilypad if you know what's good for you.

Fred's Brim said...

haha do I sense a Ted Lily/Lilypad gamethread in our future? This clairvoyance thing we got going is uncanny!

Fred's Brim said...

Toads are actually more terrestrial than their froggy cousins. They do lay eggs in water and live some of their lives in tadpole form underwater, but you will mostly find them on dry land making silly comments on baseball blogs

Fred's Brim said...

*eats cricket*

Spanky said...

(pokes out head)

not that one cochinos

MeanieBreanie said...

@Spank
There is a 12 gauge pump shotgun aimed in your direction. Just so you know, I am a damn good shot :D

Spanky said...

Here My Dear >>>>>>>

I'm sorry but I....I..couldn't help myself

MeanieBreanie said...

Spanky
You've earned a reprieve. All is forgiven.
*relaxes aim and puts gun away

rbnlaw said...

For the record: Everyone's a good shot with a 12-gauge.

karina said...

as usual, you got me confused. What's a lilypad?

Thanks Orel, for the random opportunity to look at Mr. Mauer.

@rbnlaw you said that like there no attractive 40-year olds around!

@Meaniebreanie I'd rather kiss a prince who looks permanently like a toad, than to kiss a toad disguised as a prince :)

karina said...

^are not

karina said...

Fred's Brim, I'm sure you're not a frog!

MeanieBreanie said...

@RB
You make a valid point. Give me a Glock or a Beretta and the result is still the same.
*Credits dad and brother's for teaching her well.

@Karina
I completely agree with you. Unfortunately I've mastered the art of finding the ones in disguise. I tell you they are slippery/slimy little creatures.
