Amazingly, There Is Yet Another Washed-Up Former Dodger Pitcher On The Market

...and Ned Colletti isn't giving chase? So says ESPN's Rumor Central (no link):

The Colorado Rockies are looking for bullpen help, but decided they would not bring back left-hander Joe Beimel, who is headed to Pittsburgh. Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports the Rockies are looking to sign left-hander Mark Hendrickson on a minor-league deal. The 6-9 Hendrickson has been both a starter and a reliever, but was used almost exclusively out of the bullpen for the Orioles last season, going 1-6 with a 5.26 ERA in 52 games.

Oh no, I think I gave Ned an idea. A very, very bad (and tall) idea.

Thankfully he was never a Giant or he would signed already.

I'd just rather us do a promo where one lucky person attending the game gets to come out of the pen for an inning. Ticket sales go up and random SOB has just as good a chance of being an effective lefty out of the pen.

Josh S: what's that avatar?

Steve Sax said...

GI Joe, Star Trek, Transformers, and Ghostbusters?

Dusty Baker said...

Trying again: How do you guys get your avatars to be full size when you click into them? Mine always turn out to be tiny, like Brett Favre's pee-pee.

@Dusty - Blogger gives you two options: upload photos or use a web pic url. Use the web pic.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Is this the default Lakers/Celtics thread?

Pirate Lakers v. Celtics Thread

Dusty Baker said...

Lakers better win this shit. I'm tired of being humiliated on national TV against big opponents during the regular season. We need a statement game.

Dusty Baker said...

@MLASC

Ok, I get the web bit. But a lot of times that doesn't work - Blogger says the photo can't be used. Also, what do I have to do, find a way to upload it onto a website reachable to Blogger?

Gasol fouls Pierce. Pierce grabs his hip. Pierce fakes hip surgery replacement and comes out strong in second half.

Dusty Baker said...

Anyone going to play defense?

Dusty Baker said...

Two ticky-tack fouls, one on Allen and one on Kobe, change the early dynamic of the game. Still say NBA is worst officiated sport of any in the world, even surpassing soccer/futbol, which is itself pathetic.

Dusty Baker said...

LO with a sweet baseline drive!

18-14 evil green empire.

Dusty Baker said...

22-21 Kelts at end of first period.

Dusty Baker said...

Hit a fuckin basket, Gasol!

Dusty Baker said...

KG is a soft bleeder!

Dusty Baker said...

Fish drives around Shaw for the bucket and the FT. Gasol rejects Shaq.

Methinks Shaq may be a bit old for this game.

Dusty Baker said...

Kobe: Making everyone his bitch since 1996.

Dusty Baker said...

^And no Colorado comments.

Josh S. said...

@Sax, from way back(s):

IDW is doing a crossover of sorts with four of its licensed titles called "Infestation." The characters aren't crossing over, but they're all facing the same foe. My avi is the cover to #1 of the miniseries.

Dusty Baker said...

What the hell was KG whining about? Kobe just made Shaq his Colorado hotel friend and KG has words about it?

Wait, I just violated my previous comment.

Dusty Baker said...

That's the way to hit them offensive rebounds!

KG- You are a little girl! Quit bitching!

Dusty Baker said...

I love Jack sitting there running his mouth, fucking with the Celtic players. Unsung hero.

Dusty Baker said...

Seriopusly? You gonna call a foul on a last second more than half court shot from Big Baby? You never see that.

Dusty Baker said...

^Seriously

Dusty Baker said...

5 PFs on Shaw on 13 minutes. No FGs. 6 rebounds and a coupla blocked shots.

Love ya big diesel, but you need to hang it up.

Dusty Baker said...

Sometimes Bynum just has absolutely no idea what to do when he gets the ball in the paint. #ThrowItDownBigMan

Dusty Baker said...

Horrible product placement for Sandler's new "movie." Shameless. Cut back to the fucking game, assholez!

Dusty Baker said...

After three it's BOS 77 LAK 72.

Dusty Baker said...

We just cannot guard the 3.

Dusty Baker said...

This one looks done. BOS up by 9 and threatening w 8:30 left.

Spank said...

*torture post*

Dusty Baker said...

Kobe gotta do this all by himself? He's got 37. Last 7 by Kobe. Down by four now.

Dusty Baker said...

Get that Smonkstakes shit out this space, Spank! ;-)

Dusty Baker said...

God dammit, Bynum. Take that skirt off.

Dusty Baker said...

It's over. I'm switching to golf.

Spank said...

Down by 11 now. That was fucking quick.

*pulls plug on pirate feed*

I believe you have my stapler.

Dusty Baker said...

Am I gonna have to make this the pirate SAG awards thread?

Actually I'm not watching in real time because I have to wait for Mrs. Dusty.

rbnlaw said...

I just want SAG to award me with a card.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I actually have a SAG card. Thought it's more the size of a piece of paper.

Also, it says "restraining order" on it.

Steve Sax said...

Holy smokes, I just saw "44 comments" on this thread and freaked out that we had done something crazy like traded Matt Kemp to the Angels for Vernon Wells.

Luckily, it was just a pirate thread.

Sorry for forgetting about the Lakers-Celtics game this go-round. But it looks like it was a good thing I missed it, anyway.

Steve Sax said...

(Oh, and I passed up tix to the Lakers game today, no joke. Feeling under the weather, still need to recharge.)

Steve Sax said...

I can't believe Lavin blew out Duke tonight. Wow.

LAVIN!
