ALCS Game 3 Thread: Rangers @ Yankees, 5p

Cliff Lee (2-0, 1.13) vs. Andy Pettitte (1-0, 2.57).

COMMENTS: Petit is the postseason veteran, while Cliffly is the relative newcomer. Yanks have home field today, but Rangers have the ace-ier ace. The new Yankee Stadium was the second hitter-friendliest park in the majors this season, behind only Coors Field. I want a clean fight, boys. Nothing below the belt. May the best man win. Ding ding!

I so don't get that image for this GT.

Dusty Baker said...

Don't fight, boys.

Steve Sax said...

I'd like to see Cliff Lee kick some ass tonight.

karina said...

that image for the GT, reminded me of this tumblr:

Epale everyone!

Dusty Baker said...

Baseball, football, GT...shaping up to be a great night.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Frankie has the same toy as the dog pictured in the October 15 entry on that tumblr website. It's a little hedgehog. Actually he has two: one at our place and one over at MDIL's.

Orel said...

It's not obvious, Sax?

Dusty Baker said...

MSNBC headline:

"Starbucks unchained?
Starbucks is looking to overhaul its image and could soon be luring you to its stores with wine, beer and cheese."

Um, okay, I'm there. I'll have some JD in my espresso, please! Wait, they just mentioned wine and beer.

MR. F said...

Speaking of boxers, I was at the Treasure Island Music Festival yesterday. Aside from seeing Zooey Deschanel, I got to see The National, performing many songs from their (IMHO) best album, Boxer.

Orel said...

Is Zooey a good singer?

Dusty Baker said...

She sang very well in the movie ELF.

Orel said...

True.

Spanky said...

Juliette Lewis Rocks!


*drives off a cliff*

MR. F said...

She knows what she's doing with the singing. She writes nice songs, too. They're not ambitious, but they're pleasant, sunny, 70's AM-style pop. In a sea of overproduced, autotuned pop music, it's very refreshing.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I think her band performed in "Yes Man."

MR. F said...

Those songs are both "She & Him" songs, which is her duo with M. Ward. They were the ones at Treasure Island. Good stuff.

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks for the intel and links, Mr F!

Spanky said...

*sends Brett Favre pic of Spanks hairy ass via fax*

Paul said...

Venti Merlotochino please....


Hey that looks my dog brewski!!

The GT pic not spank's hairy ass.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't have fax. Can you scan it and send it to me as a PDF?

Dusty Baker said...

Tweet that shit, Spanky.

rbnlaw said...

I'm in town to play the Dolphins, you dumbass.

also sprach Brett Favre

Spanky said...

*chases Ines Saenz around EverBank Field while sporting no shirt,assless chaps and flip-flops*

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Uh oh. Spanky thinks he's Rex Ryan.

Josh S. said...

Assless chaps, eh? Now who's supporting the Giants?

Spanky said...

*gets chased by Josh wanting his chaps back*

Dusty Baker said...

Josh is wearing his new culottes, not assless chaps.

Dusty Baker said...

Bleacher Creatures were a little late in calling roll today.

MeanieBreanie said...

Epale Y'all
Meanie in da house
GO RANGERS!

Dusty Baker said...

GOOOOOOOOOONE!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK OFF PETTTITTTTE you ugly bastard!

Spanky said...

Pettitte You Suck

And that is a fucking good thang

MeanieBreanie said...

Love it! Rangers up 2-0

karen said...

Hooray Josh Hamilton!!

Epale Everyone!

Spanky said...

What's Meanie,Karen, my nemesis Dusty

Spanky said...

^up

MeanieBreanie said...

Hey Karen, Spanks, DB et al. Hope everyone is doing well today.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm a little under the weather today, but surly as usual. About to receive a beat-down from Spanky in fantasy football, but as long as the Yankpees lose, I'll be fine.

Josh S. said...

FUCK THE YANKEES!!!!

(Just so you know I haven't completely lost my damn mind.)

Dusty Baker said...

Siddown, Jints fans!

MeanieBreanie said...

DB - hope you're feeling better soon.

Dusty Baker said...

@MB

Thanks; I think I'm fighting the flu. Not totally sick but really, really tired as if my body as telling me to siddown already and chill out so it can fight the evil invaders.

Think I'll make some tea with bourbon to kill anything that moves.

Spanky said...

I need Tennessee to Titan that D on Lewis

Spanky said...

I still see a Gnat when I look at this mutt

Spanky said...

Bye,Bye A-Roid

Dusty Baker said...

That was some filthy shit, Cliff! Represent Razorbacks!

Dusty Baker said...

THAT was a stiff-arm. Dayum!

Spanky said...

Push coming to shove with Cliff Lee Roth

Spanky said...

Field goal range

MeanieBreanie said...

Picture of Orel the pitching Einstein on TV.

DB - drink Drambuie. That will kill anything. Dad used to give it to us when we were kids and feeling sick. To this day I still drink it when feeling puny, especially with a sore throat.

Spanky said...

Drambuie? sounds carazay

MeanieBreanie said...

Drambuie is a scotch liquer.

Spanky said...

Figures, Meanie.

rbnlaw said...

Someone say "Scotch?"

MeanieBreanie said...

Heller RB - Scotch anytime eh?

Mr. Customer said...

Hey boys and girls!

2-0 good guys is acceptable.

Dusty Baker said...

Good suggestion, MB. I used to drink Night Train in college when I felt myself getting ill, and I literally never had as much as a cold or flu in those years. Also drank it in between those times, for preventative reasons. That's why I have such a fine career in public health today!

Spanky said...

FUCK YOU VINCE YOUNG

Dusty Baker said...

How many broken bats can there be in one game? What did they do, soak the bats in olive oil before the game?

MeanieBreanie said...

Evening Mr. C - Texas is off to a good start indeed!

Spanky said...

Fucking Lee is on fire

Dusty Baker said...

FILTH from Lee!

MeanieBreanie said...

DB - Never heard of Night Train and had to google it. I don't think I've ever seen it sold anywhere. Sounds like it's right up there with Colt 45 :~)

Dusty Baker said...

Exactly, MB! Gotta alternate between Colt 45 and Night Train. That's what kept me healthy all those years.

Dusty Baker said...

Gardner, you actually have to touch the base to be safe, man.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Cliff Lee good at baseball. Bill Simmons not good at baseball.

Dusty Baker said...

Kerry Collins should not be tied with Dan Fouts for ANYTHING. Weird.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

What the hell is going on with this football game?

Dusty Baker said...

Who is STOOPID, MLASF?

Spanky said...

Thunderbird are the Gnats and Night Train are the Dodgers

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bill Simmons said Yankees in "a romp."

Something's getting romped, alright.

Dusty Baker said...

What happened to V Young?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Just need 43 yards from MJD for the win. C'mon, Jags.

Mr. Customer said...

Thunderbird is the word, and you're light as a feather.

Spanky said...

Young fumbled a snap and got dogpiled on

Dusty Baker said...

Detox in the flophouse, no booze allowed
Remember the good old days with the rockabilly crowd

Dusty Baker said...

BTW, Paul: Nice boutique!

cc: FB

Spanky said...

Fuck Mercedes

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

29 more yards!

Spanky said...

Bye,Bye Jetah

Dusty Baker said...

I sure didn't see offensive pass interference on that.

Dusty Baker said...

Oooops...just realized this wasn't a mega or ultra or super duper thread, so maybe I shouldn't be talking NFL in this space.

Spanky said...

The bat went Swish-er

Spanky said...

Even the crowd went ohh on that breaking ball by Lee

Dusty Baker said...

Swisher is a swisher.

Spanky said...

Give me a field goal titans

Mr. Customer said...

Is there really any point to restricting thread use to the game at hand? I mean, even when the Dodgers are good, it's still tangent central in here.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah, that was what was kind of purposefully ignorant in my above comment, Mr C. Just seeing if Orel was paying attention.

Spanky said...

STFU Gray TOOF

Dusty Baker said...

SHOW IT!!!

Spanky said...

I think the bats are made of plywood

Dusty Baker said...

I think they're made of Chinese sheetrock. WTF? At this point, the broken bats are affecting gameplay. Fix this shit, MLB.

Spanky said...

Field goal range Dusty

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Stoopid David Garrard.

Spanky said...

The bats are not made of chinese bamboo that's fo' sho'

Dusty Baker said...

God damn I hate fantasy sports.

Dusty Baker said...

WHEW!

Dusty Baker said...

WHEW!

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK service unavailable error 503! I want to go back to conflicting edits errors.

Spanky said...

One more goaline fail please

Dusty Baker said...

Again: WHEW!

Dusty Baker said...

NOONAN!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Shaft Liquors lead now at five.

Spanky said...

FUCKYOUPOSADA

MeanieBreanie said...

How many more bats can break? This is friggin ridiculous.

Steve Sax said...

come on rangers

Spanky said...

MeanieBreanie and Saxy in da Hizzouse

Spanky said...

I want points for the kick offs tambien

Spanky said...

I thought he broke his bat on that strike out

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

OMG the Jags suck so much.

Spanky said...

You'll get your points Dude

karina said...

@Mr LASF "Stoopid David Garrard."

I feel pity for the person who owns him in fantasy.

wait....

STOOPID :(

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

@Karina - You should know better than to have someone from the Jags on your team.

Wait...

...

(cries)

Spanky said...

Field goal range Dusty

karina said...

Paul and Mr LASF have quite the match going on!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I didn't know D-Will was with Tennessee.

Spanky said...

Fucking refs cost me points

karina said...

@Mr LASF I feel totally your pain.

There's something bothering me: the week I dropped Vince Young, it's the week when he starts performimg.

ah, the joys and wonders of fantasy football

Dusty Baker said...

This one's in the bag for you, Spanky.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

David is slaying Goliath.

Dusty Baker said...

Alright, alright, enough. This loss is tough.

Six bobbleheads next season, per VSIMH.

@Dusty how many bobbleheads in August and September?

Spanky said...

Garrard is out of the game

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No more Garrard.

karina said...

why is he out, gentlemen?

Spanky said...

His clock was rung Karina

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

He took a pretty bad hit and was shaken up.

Orel said...

Epale, mofos! Dusty, please cut the football chatter.

Just Dusty. Everyone else can talk football.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bad as in hard, not dirty.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Damn you, Trent Edwards, give MJD some touches.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

1 in August but none in Sept I believe.

MeanieBreanie said...

Cheers Orel!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FUCK

Spanky said...

NO

Spanky said...

HATEYOUMERCEDESHATEYOU

karina said...

I do have a question, why not "Viva Los Doyers"?

Spanky said...

MERCEDESFUMBLEFUCKYEAH

MeanieBreanie said...

Lee dodged a bullet. Come on Rangers, we need some hits/runs!

Orel said...

Drink of choice tonight, MB? TJ's Syrah here.

Josh S. said...

HALF-PRICE CONCESSIONS!!!

MeanieBreanie said...

@Orel
Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc here.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I hate the Jags.

karina said...

Hey Rangers, I'm under the impression no safe is lead with the Yankees

(cries)

Spanky said...

Only 2 runs off petite.

Spanky said...

The steroid connection. Petite and A-Roid

karina said...

By the way, that's a sweet hedgehog Frankie owns, Coper actually owns a couple of Tweetys and he loves THEM.

Josh S. said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

Mr. Customer said...

Some dark corner of my soul wants there to be a "Steroid Connection" sung to the tune of "Rainbow Connection".

karina said...

is it me or people were booing to The Boss granddaughter?

Spanky said...

It was me booing from 3,000 miles away

MeanieBreanie said...

My dogs don't need any toys. They have live vermin to catch...(cries)

Josh S. said...

In fairness, she WAS awful.

Spanky said...

Possum is good eats.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Thems some good vittles, I tell you what.

MeanieBreanie said...

She doesn't eat them, she just kills them. Then I have to "bag them" and call the city for pick up. The guy from Animal Control knows my house all too well. He loves my dog.

Orel said...

Cliff Lee is good.

MeanieBreanie said...

Lee is great! Too bad he doesn't play for the Dodgers.

Spanky said...

I was talking about my good eats

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

And I was talking about Spanky's good eats.

el montanero said...

cliff lee is an ace's ace. there's no one ace-ier.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Who's a good quarterback entering the draft after this year? Terrell Prior? Well Terrell, have fun with the Jags next season.

karina said...

@Meaniebreanie doesn't she like to play with toys?

MeanieBreanie said...

LASF and Spanks
And so it is, possum stew for the two of you served in an armadillo shell. Them there's some vittles.

Spanky said...

3 more points


(cries)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Chalk another one up for Bironas.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I JUST NEED 30 FUCKING YARDS DAMMIT

Orel said...

Joe Posnanski is the bestest writer ever.

Spanky said...

I likes my possum in a bread bowl with a glass of cabernet sauvignon 5% merlot

MeanieBreanie said...

@Karina
They only like the stuffed ones and literally tear those apart within 5 minutes. Everything else is totally ignored.

They love rawhide, dental chews, and any treats you throw their way.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FUCK DEJI KARIM GIVE ME MJD

Spanky said...

They are going to be passing the rest of the night MLASF. Best say a prayer

Orel said...

No Pettitte Syrah jokes yet?

Spanky said...

Meanies dogs are too big for stuffed toys. They need an arm to chew on

Spanky said...

Come on MJD

MeanieBreanie said...

Spank
Come on over and you can lend them yours.

My 117 lb big boy is a sweetheart and the 50 lb is my little terror.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

FUCK NO TD

Spanky said...

Meanie
I still have battle scars from my cockapoo I trained to killKillKILL. Don't temp me with pain.

Spanky said...

^tempt

Spanky said...

CLIFF MOFO LEE

karina said...

how come pain is your temptation, Spanky?

Orel said...

Cliff Lee is so good he needs a wine named after him.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let's get that Jacksonville defense going.

MeanieBreanie said...

@Orel
But what's the caption?

Spanky said...

Because it feels good Karina. It is the best feeling in the world. It is better than sex. You're not believing what I am telling you,are you?. It is called talking shit.

Fred's Brim said...

well played, Brett!

Fred's Brim said...

and epale, yall!
I am here to jinx this game

MeanieBreanie said...

Hi FB - No worries, we won't let you jinx it.

Orel said...

Pinot Cliff Lee-gio?

Spanky said...

Who crushes Lees' grapes for the wine? Snooki?

MeanieBreanie said...

Orel, good attempt but it doesn't sound very appealing. You score major points for the effort. That is a whole heck of a lot better than anything I could ever think of.

karina said...

@Orel if Posnansky is the bestest writer ever, Tony Pena is the bestest man ever and his story is the amazingest ever, too.

Thank you very much, it's already bookmarked.

karina said...

@Spanky I was joking :(

MeanieBreanie said...

TX runners at 1st and 3rd. Let's make something of it!

Spanky said...

I have a 12 point lead

(cries)

Fred's Brim said...

The General likes that hit

Orel said...

Rangers insurance! 3-0 TEX

MeanieBreanie said...

And TX scores ;~)

karina said...

200!
