Wednesday notes needs more Alba.

Fred's Brim said...

anybody else have Veteran's Day off?

Josh S. said...

I do, FB, and I took a vacation day Friday too.

MR. F said...

No =(

Fred's Brim said...

have a good 4-day weekend, Josh!

@Mr F - sorry, man. I hope it won't be another all-nighter :(

MR. F said...

Hah. That was my last 3-day weekend. It should be okay, just no day off is all.

Steve Sax said...

that posnanski article (and the jeter one he just did as well) is great. as usual.

rbnlaw said...

4 day weekend commencing. . .NOW!

*leaves work*

MR. F said...

Hot.

I've got some Wednesday notes:

Monasterios lost his first game as starter, on the first game of a doubleheader Bravos-Tigres, according to the Bravos official Twitter account,MonsterCherios was retired somewhere in the third inning, after allowing 3 runs, however the Bravos defense didn't make a couple of double plays in the second inning (Monasterios is surrounded by a collective effort towards ineptitude everywhere)

his line today:

2.1 IP,6 H, 6 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 0 K

Andy LaRoche is playing with Bravos too,so:

3-0, 1 K

that's why you don't trade prospects ;) (just kidding)

Tigres de Aragua have shut down Bravos in 3 of 4 games this season, 2 shutouts in consecutive games.

karina said...

On more Bravos notes, because it seems it's the team more Dodgers related right now, Belisario is burning the league (quemando la liga in our slang). He's been chosen as "Bravo of the week" in 2 weeks in a row.

His overall performance so far:

5 G, 5.1 IP, 5 H, 0 BB, 0 ER, 263 OBA, .26 OSLG

It's more remarkable because of the 5 games, 3 have been played in Margarita, a hitter's park.

karina said...

Awwwww, a great Venezuelan baseball journalist just compared Dodger Stadium and Petco Park with the Luis Aparicio.

Maybe that's why either of my teams can't win it all.

(sobs)

karina said...

Sorry for the overload, but enjoy your Veteran's Day y'all!

Fred's Brim said...

Thanks for the updates, karina!
I am glad Belli is pitching well. I really think that if he has stopped drinking and shows up on time to spring training, he can have a great year.

Spanky said...

SOMEBODY RIPPED OFF MY CHINCHILLA COAT!

Dusty Baker said...

Yep I am off like a prom dress for today and tomorrow. Headed to the Banjo Belt for me granny's 90th birthday shindig in Conway, AR.

Dusty Baker said...

Thx for the winter ball update, Karina. Better than any lA Times article I've read.

Dusty Baker said...

Has everyone wished our Karina a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY yet???

MR. F said...

OMG HAPPY BIRTHDAY KARINA!! WE MAKE PARTY!!!

MR. F said...

@DB, How'd you know it's Karina's birthday? Are you facebook friends or something?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

As a matter of fact I think they are.

MR. F said...

I want facebook friends!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Do you have facebook?

MR. F said...

Yup.

Dusty Baker said...

Yes, Facebook.

Dusty Baker said...

Yesterday I was in the elevator with a co-worker, casually talking about the Dodgers' offseason. I said yeah, apparently there is some Cliff Lee "interest" but hey, i'm "interested" in Jessica Alba, too. Waited for him to react. A few seconds passed. Finally he got it. I thought it was a great gag (borrowed of course from yesterday's post) but this dude was stone faced.

I try...I really do.

Spanky said...

Happy Birhtday,Karina.

MR. F said...

So... how do I find you guys on facebook?

Mr. Customer said...

I did, but it bears repeating. Happy Birthday Karina!

Mr. Customer said...

I'm still stubbornly holding out on Facebook.

karen said...

Karina--Happy Birthday, Girlfriend. I hope it's a great day!!

Dusty Baker said...

@Mr F

Just under my real name on Fbook (Kyle Baker)

Josh S. said...

Feliz CumpleaƱos, Karina!

Me and Mr. F are Facebook friends from way back.

Josh S. said...

BTW, I know that was incorrect grammar.

MR. F said...

There are so many Dusty Bakers!

Dusty Baker said...

@ Josh

Perfectly appropriate incorrect grammar in that context.

Spanky said...

Farmville up in dis bish!

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty 9:35a: You know what the key to good comedy is?

Josh S. said...

2011 promo schedule is up. Kershaw and Fernando bobbleheads are must-gets.

karina said...

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes!you're the best and definitely I love my snarkies.

We'll indeed make party,in fact my family in Florida are using the day off as an excuse to celebrate :)

I want to be friends with Josh and Mr F on Facebook too ;)

lots of love for all of you and I hope everyone is enjoying the day.

p.s: Josh, why was it grammatically incorrect? can it be rephrased as Mr. F and I are Facebook friends from way back?

MR. F said...

Yay! Facebook friends! I sent you a request, Karina. At least, I hope that's you.

Dusty Baker said...

@ Sax

In this case, the key was that I was talking to a gay male who does not follow sports.

Dusty Baker said...

Neeebs is up in dis Facebook bish, too.

el montanero said...

Happy birthday, Karina!


On an unrelated note, I had the worst nightmare last night. I was at the stadium watching the Dodgers lose ineptly to the jints 4-1, and my dad (who died 11 years ago) was sitting next to me and said, "Man these guys suck." I just sighed and said, "Yeah, I know."

Mr. Customer said...

*sigh*

I hate missing out. Does this mean I have to join Facebook now? Everyone seems to be having so much fun...

*covers ears and closes eyes*

MR. F said...

Lol Mr. C.

I was very resistant to facebook as well. My friends joined facebook for me when it first came out. They used my email address and said "here's your account and password. If you don't change your password, we'll keep putting weird crap about you on it."

So I have it. I'm not super active, but I use it.

el montanero said...

Peer pressure! Do it, Mr. C, you know you wanna!

Can I get a little Facebook love as well?

Spanky said...

I did. But who in their right mind would want to be my friend.

Mr. Customer said...

Oh, balls...

MR. F said...

I have no idea how to find you, el montanero.

MeanieBreanie said...

Happy Belated Birthday Karina. I hope your day was truly special!

@DB - have a great time in AK and best birthday wishes to Grandma.

I too am on FB if anyone wishes to find me: Sabrina Galindo

Spanky said...

How do we find you Mr.F?

MR. F said...

One doesn't find me =X.

I sent you an email on your listed email, Spanky.

MR. F said...

Okay Meanie, you have a surprisingly common name.

Spanky said...

Woomp! There it is.

Mr. Customer said...

@MB

Dusty's going to Alaska? Fuck, pack a sweater, hermano!

MR. F said...

Okay Meanie, I hope I added the right you.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty (from Sax 1.30p):

Timing.

el montanero said...

@Mr. F

Duh, on my part. Name's Ryan Armenta.

Fred's Brim said...

happy birthday karina! Did you get any good presents?

Mr C, I have a facebook account and log in every 6 months or so. I got an email a couple of days ago saying I had 19 pending friend requests. No Roger Corwin, I don't want to be your friend. We weren't friends in high school before you moved away and we probably wont be now. I don't know why I am so hesitant to use it. Maybe I am old.

@MB - I had to reread your comment about FB a couple of times...

Fred's Brim said...

and thanks, Josh, for the heads up on the promo schedule. I may have to center a trip out there for the Fernando bobble

Josh S. said...

All the readers are unmasking!

OK, Sons, you're up!

Josh S. said...

You could always have Mephisto undo it.

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S 5:42p: I loved this comment.

I have a post in my head about this whole mephisto retcon garbage. I liked Quesada before (I even own some of his art), but this move was just way too much.

Josh S. said...

I still say there were some good stories post recon, but I totally get bailing after reading that Quesada dreck.

Dusty Baker said...

That would be Arkansas (AR) not AK (Palinland).

Dusty Baker said...

Eight Ryan Armentas on Fbook!

MeanieBreanie said...

@DB, the AK was a freudian slip. I cannot stand Sarah Palin and would never knowingly make an association such as that.

@FB, I can understand the doubletake. Mrs. FB would undoubtedly have one as well ;~)

karina said...

Thanks Montanero and Fred's Brim. I did receive nice presents and some more on the way!

Montanero I did give you some love on Facebook :)

I think I just caught up with the rest of you, don't get scared when you see my pics, I'm still a nice person!
