World Series Game 4 Thread, 5p

The only thing in orange we'll be celebrating today.

Madison Bumgarner (1-0, 3.55) vs. Tommy Hunter (0-1, 6.14).

COMMENTS: Ladies and gentlemen, we have a series! Want to learn how the Rangers won Game 3? Read all about it from one of the finest writers in the business:

The Rangers can restore more sanity to the World Series by defeating Dagwood Bumstead — er, Madison Bumgarner — and getting the real Cliff Lee to show up for Game 5. But one thing at a time: A win tonight and we're all (bow)tied up.

Who carved those pumpkins? Cool stuff.

Steve Sax said...

Holy smokes, that is an awesome article by Joe Po'. Thanks for the find, Orel!

Dusty Baker said...

It's so lonely out here. I'm scared. Will someone hold my hand?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

HATE

Dusty Baker said...

Duly noted, MLASC.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Sorry, I meant Tate, but I typo'd.

TATE.

Dusty Baker said...

That BK breakfast ad really may be the death of me. Whether it's the surly hippie flautist or the overly-joyful mail delivery guy, I want to kill Kill KILL everyone associated with this commercial. Or myself.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

But on the smack thread last week you indicated you like those commercials. I'm getting mixed signals.

Steve Sax said...

I feel like Dusty's playing hard to get.

Dusty Baker said...

Sorry, guys. You know I have a tough time sharing what's on my mind.

Josh S. said...

HATE AND CANDY.

Dusty Baker said...

Wish they made a HATE flavor in Fun Dip.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Finally I benefit from Favre's awfulness.

Spanky said...

HATEKILLDIE GNATS!

Steve Sax said...

From ESPN: "Just how unpredictable is this series? The team up 2-1 is only 41-40 in World Series Game 4s, a wash."

Dusty Baker said...

Favre may be done. Looksnlike broken jaw. Or lockjaw.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

At least Aikman is pulling for the Rangers.

Matthew said...

Great PUMPKIN CHARLIE BROWN! AWESOME support for the boys in blue! GO RANGERS!

Mr. Customer said...

@Dusty from 2:51

No inappropriate touching in the Game Thread!

karina said...

Epale everyone!

@Josh now the song "Sex and Candy" is stuck in my head.

@Mathew I like the way you talk. I know the Great Pumpkin won't let us down, go Rangers!

Dusty Baker said...

Up jumps the devil!

Just practicing.

karen said...

Greetings Everyone!!

Karina--I like the way Matthew talks, too. He said something the other day about the gnat fans going on about "Sweet Torture" and that it would only be sweet torture if they lost in games 6 or 7. I couldn't agree more!!

DIE GNATS

Dusty Baker said...

Epale, Karina!

We're currently tied at 68 in fantasy football. All your players have now played. I still have P Manning, Arian Foster, and that useless Colston yet to play. So you need all those guys to get zero points and in fact need someone to get negative points in order to get the win.

Spanky said...

The Rogue Warrior is 1-0 against Dusty. Just saying.

Mr. Customer said...

@dusty

Those commercials piss me off, as well.

Every time I see that fucker playing the flute with one hand (and the wrong one, at that), a little piece of me dies, too.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to shove that flute straight up that surly hippie's ass.

Sorry I'm being unclear on my feelings around this commercial.

Dusty Baker said...

Why why why do they taunt me so??? Now there is a new, extended surly hippie flautist ad. * howls at the gods *

karina said...

@Dusty this is my fault, I didn't dedicate enough time to my fantasy team this week and I woke up too late today. This is a clean match, don't worry!

Having said that, I'm crossing my fingers the Czar beats the Professor.

karina said...

Matthew, if you are reading this, you should comment more, you already have the seal of approval of a couple of SoSG girls.

rbnlaw said...

I just hate TV in general. That passing fad will never replace the radio.

T minus 60 minutes until I hide from Trick-or-Treaters.

Spanky said...

(cries)

I got my Fox sports channels back. I can see the Lakers now.

(cries)


DIEGNATSDIEDIEDIEDIE

Mr. Customer said...

Hate bubbling up as we speak.

Dusty Baker said...

To make matters worse, all I have to drink here at in laws is Miller Lite.

rbnlaw said...

DB,
Could be worse; could be Corona Light.

*shudders*

karina said...

Another falling hero, great model, Jessica Stam, a Giants fan. I just made the vote not to see anything she's on ever again.

HATE

Spanky said...

Lots of fly by night fans coming out of the woodwork.

karina said...

It feels wrong to hate on Great Pumpkin night :(

Linus wouldn't approve

Dusty Baker said...

My god Lyle Lovett is ugly. And a shitty singer.

Surly factor: 4 of 5

Beer status: -2

Spanky said...

hateHateHATE

Dusty Baker said...

Karina-

How is Halloween being celebrated in your neck of the woods?

karina said...

Just turned on the TV, is that Joe Torre wearing a Yankees jacket?

rbnlaw said...

Did karina say "hate?"

My world is upside down.

Dusty Baker said...

And now ladies and gentlemen, let's engage in another 5 minutes of jingoism and arrogant self-importance.

Spanky said...

Mission Accomplished.

Dusty Baker said...

Wow, my hatred for Gnats even trumps my loathing for George W. Impressive, Gnats!

Dusty Baker said...

That arrogant shit sucker sure can throw a strike, though.

Spanky said...

Is it safe to change the channel back?

karina said...

@Dusty though it's not really tradition, our equivalent should be Carnival, Halloween is widely celebrated. All kindergartens celebrate it and there are parties everywhere, all this weekend. In fact, there might be lots of parties next week celebrating Halloween.

When I was in college, we used to celebrate Halloween big time, we put lots of effort organizing the party, we had prizes for the best costumes and we made over the top decorations. One year in particular we even got a real coffin and set up a cemetery in the yard, our names and epitaphs in tombstones, which we made from cardboard, they looked very real, we can get away with a LOT when we have paint, glue, cardboard and our hands working together :)

karen said...

MY HATE IS UP AND RAGING

DIEGNATSDIE

Dusty Baker said...

Sounds like good clean fun, Karina. Have some "vampire blood" too (eg, red wine).

Mr. Customer said...

Crap.

Spanky said...

Bring dat shit Karen



DIEFUCKINGGNATSDIEDIEDIE

Dusty Baker said...

Is it too early to call for throwing at Buster Hymen?

Spanky said...

FUCK YOU PUBEY

Mr. Customer said...

Yes!

karina said...

@Dusty yes, it was. As you can tell, I love Halloween for several reasons. This year I didn't go to any party but I'm sure next year is going to be memorable.

karina said...

Ah Dusty, no vampire blood for me, I'm more of a witch ;)

I do have to make my wish for The Great Pumpkin (I'm not ashamed to be a geek)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nice walk for Andrus.

karina said...

@JesseSanchezMLB Hope this AL crowd recognizes how good Posey is & how good he is going to be #mlbpulse

HATEDIEKILL

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

As much as I hate Pubey he is a good player.

karina said...

rbnlaw, this is the Giants we're talking about, of course there's LOTS of RAGING HATE.

Spanky said...

I like that E.A.

Mr. Customer said...

Balls.

karina said...

@Czarhe he doesn't have anything compared to my son

(cries)

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Well yeah, that's because Martin sucks.

karen said...

My mom keeps saying that Pubes is going to be a "Special player". I tell her "He's a fucking gnat"!

DIEGNATSDIEYOUFUCKERS

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Unless he pulls a Carlos Santana (injury) or a Martin (incredible regression), Pubes will be a great player, and it kill me to say.

Mr. Customer said...

Damn, strikezone is ellusive tonight.

Dusty Baker said...

Straighten your mom out, Karen!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

UIBB to Ross?

karen said...

First trick or treaters just here. It's going to be a challenge controlling my raging HATE when handing out candy to cute little goblins.

DIEGNATSDIE

Spanky said...

Pubey is still a gnat.

Mr. Customer said...

Did Bochy's 'stache grow noticably between innings? Dude was clean-shaven at 5p

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Nice sack of Civil Trial.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Poor MB. She's starting the alleged rapist and I'm just going to mock him all night.

Spanky said...

Give the ump some coke rage,R Wash.

Mr. Customer said...

That's an out, blue.

NicJ said...

aint that some shit.

karina said...

@Czar my son will always have 2007 :(

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Unfortunately he won't have it again.

Dusty Baker said...

Channel the rage and scare the punk freeloading kids, Karen.

Spanky said...

*opens front door*

*steals candy from kid*

Dusty Baker said...

Like the fact that mrs bush is keeping score. That's some good retro type shit I respect, even if she does look like her husband in drag.

karina said...

@Czar your lack of faith is disturbing

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

It's also warranted.

Mr. Customer said...

Hope the bullpen has recovered. Hunter ain't going deep.

Spanky said...

DIEGNATSDAMMITDIE

NicJ said...

Jmarts over.

one good year isnt worth 3+ bad ones.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't like it when the Saints wear the black pants. They look like they're wearing unitards.

NicJ said...

HOLY SHIT!!

(does claw)

Dusty Baker said...

Hell yeah, god boy!

karina said...

I love you, Josh Hamilton, I won't ever doubt your grit and hustle again.

karen said...

Great catch Josh!!

Spanky said...

HAMY!

Mr. Customer said...

YES!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hooray for NA!

karina said...

I love your sartorial commentary, Czar, for real :)

NicJ said...

bulllllllllshittttttt


getting two different strikezones tonight.

Spanky said...

Brawlin' in Nawlins'

Mr. Customer said...

100

Mr. Customer said...

You gotta be kidding.

karen said...

Fuck you Freddie Sanchez. Get in your fucking wheelchair

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Shaq is scaring me right now.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

For a 0-0 game, there are certainly no indications that it will be a pitchers' duel.

Spanky said...

Fuck

Mr. Customer said...

Fuck, I'm tired of that guy.

NicJ said...

the giants are getting all the breaks that would tell you they are going to win.

Mr. Customer said...

FCKFUCKFUCKFUCK

Spanky said...

shit

NicJ said...

sigh

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Well that sucked.

Spanky said...

FUCK THE GNATS!

LOSE MOTHERFUCKERS

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

At least it's AL, so no pitcher for Texas.

NicJ said...

im beginning to lose all faith in baseball

karina said...

NicJ, please don't lose faith in baseball. Remember, this is a powerful offensive, a couple of runs is not much harm. We all are together in this, we can't lose faith in the good guys.

Spanky said...

Fuck Yeah! Mario Brothers and bear cub up in this trick or treating bish!

Mr. Customer said...

Not out of this yet.

Spanky said...

Score some fucking runs

Mr. Customer said...

Time to put some stick on it, Tejas.

Orel said...

Freddy Sanchez: Sno-Cone catch
Michael Young: ball goes off webbing

Kinda sums it all up.

karen said...

We're still in this everyone. Karina is right. We are all in this together and the POWER of our HATE is a force that the gnats can't beat!!!

DIEGNATSDIE

Mr. Customer said...

That's a start.

Spanky said...

Knock the shit out of the ball Vlady

Spanky said...

Fucking shit man

Mr. Customer said...

DAMMIT

NicJ said...

Time to switch to the laker game.

karina said...

If I learned something of Palpatine and Darth Vader, it is that fear and hate can make anyone powerful.

Let's hate so much to give Darth Maul a run for his money.

HATE! (I'm with you sistah Karen!)

Spanky said...

LOSEFUCKINGGNATS

Mr. Customer said...

Whiff.

Get some damn runs, now.

Dusty Baker said...

hate Hate HATE these fuckerers!

Mr. Customer said...

Fucking Ross.

Where the fuck are the bats?!

Orel said...

Is Cody Ross going to be a free agent?

Dusty Baker said...

At Spanky

Was that bear cub humping in a tent?

Dusty Baker said...

There are some close fantasy football games up in dis bish.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Ross has one year left.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

What's this crap I hear re: Chavez threatening to take over the golf courses and then put them to different use? Blasphemy!

Orel said...

I hope Ross hits .000 next year.

Spanky said...

20 point lead for Lakers at the end of first quarter.


*dry humps nicholson*

Dusty Baker said...

Siddown, you lame-ass cowboy named pest!

Spanky said...

Lets get some runs RANGERS

karen said...

Come on now Rangers, let's sack up!!!

karina said...

@Dusty he's been saying that for a while now. He says golf is a "bourgeois sport" so those lands should be reserved for any other use. Of course, there are plenty of pictures of Che Guevara and the Castros playing golf, but who can argue with someone who said the current Nobel Prize of Literature, Mario Vargas Llosa is -quoting word for word- "illiterate"?

Life in this country is a mix of a bad magic realism novel and Woody Allen's Bananas. I won't never apologize enough for the words of Chavez. I'm sorry, I swear most Venezuelans are coherent, well intentioned people.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Rangers only have one hit? WTF?

Steve Sax said...

This is not looking good...

Steve Sax said...

Why can't Texas get to this Bum-garner?

Spanky said...

Here we go. Fuck Madelyn . I mean

FUCK MADISON

karina said...

double play :(

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Madison is already a girl's name.

Mr. Customer said...

Fuck me. Desperation time is coming now.

Spanky said...

fuck me fuck me fuck me

SHIT

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Thanks for playing, Texas.

Mr. Customer said...

Balls, that's probably game...

karina said...

DON'T give up, c'mon!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Mmmmmmm...

Nah, I'm gonna give up.

karina said...

*standing ovation for that God Bless America*

karina said...

@Czar what do I have to do so you believe?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Score three runs for the Rangers.

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

*steps back from the ledge*

Getting a bit panicky, though.

karina said...

That's my Mr. C!

Czar, you know I can't do that

(cries)

karen said...

A break for the Rangers...finally

Spanky said...

Hit it Vlady

Spanky said...

FUCK YOU VLAD

Spanky said...

COME ON FUCKERS

SCORE SCORE SCORE SCORE SCORE

Orel said...

The one year I don't want the AL to suck.

Mr. Customer said...

Dyin' here.

Dusty Baker said...

Thx for that golf explanation, Karina. Guess Chavez thinks he is th supreme determiner of which sport is bourgeois and which is not.

Dusty Baker said...

If Gnats win, it will mean that the Yankmes and the Gnats will have one back to back WS. What did I do to anger the baseball gods so?

Mr. Customer said...

Fuckity fuck fuck fuck.

Orel said...

Joe Buck pulled a reverse Steiner there.

Mr. Customer said...

Yankmes always win, I've learned to deal with that. This is a whole other animal.

karina said...

You know what? it ain't over 'till it's over and I won't stop believing 'till (IF) the Giants win game four.

*sobs*

Mr. Customer said...

Six more chances, Rangers.

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

Deathly Hallows trailer on. Suppose it's a good omen?

Dusty Baker said...

Sorry to have to dispatch you in fantasy football Karina. This one is done. How are the other games going? Did you leave pts on the bench Nic?

NicJ said...

nope, just four injuries to my starting lineup this week.

karina said...

@Mr C where? another one?

*sigh* Francouer :(

Mr. Customer said...

Ain't that the way...

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

Don't know if it was a new one. It played right after the end if the top if the inning.

Mr. Customer said...

^of

Mr. Customer said...

I hate this.

Spanky said...

We're fucked.

karen said...

I hate this, too, MrC. How can the baseball gods treat us so badly? Didn't we suffer enough during the Dodger season?

NicJ said...

now im starting to lose my faith in humanity.

Steve Sax said...

If you're letting Madison Bumgarber beat you, you don't deserve to win the title.

Dusty Baker said...

(cries)

Mr. Customer said...

Quit with the verbal hanj on Wilson, you fucking fuck.

Dusty Baker said...

I was trying to get Mrs Dusty to post something but she said she was too sad about the game.

NicJ said...

The Giants winning shortens my patience for our own WS.

Mr. Customer said...

Understandable, Mrs. B.

Mr. Customer said...

@NicJ

Agreed. I'm feeling fucking militant with Frank and Neddy at this point.

Josh S. said...

Thank God for Halloween, so I didn't have to watch this atrocity.

TRICK OR TREAT, BITCHES!

karina said...

Mr C, I've seen those trailers before :(

This game is about to ruin my Halloween night :(

Mr. Customer said...

What a tool.

NicJ said...

mainly because now we have nothing to hold over them. Sure we have more but our last one was from so long ago it almost doesn't even count anymore.

Mr. Customer said...

Gonna be hard for me to watch the remains of this series. I don't think I can take the sight.

Dusty Baker said...

I want to go all Jason from Friday the 13th and start cutting up some bitches.

*dons hockey mask*

Spanky said...

This is the worst.

Mr. Customer said...

Bollocks.
