Way off topic, but worthy of being mentioned and of some degree of ridicule:

"Yankees stepping up pursuit of Andruw Jones
Drew Silva Jan 16, 2011, 10:44 AM EST 2 Comments

It would appear that super agent Scott Boras is close to finding a home for veteran client Andruw Jones.

The Yankees were first linked to Jones last week by SI.com’s Jon Heyman and now the Sports Illustrated reporter is saying that the Bombers have “stepped up” their pursuit of the 33-year-old.

Jones isn’t as great defensively as he once was and he is no longer the type of guy you want playing in 160-plus games, but he has his uses.

The Yankees could try him as their designated hitter from time to time against left-handed pitchers and could have him serve as a backup to both corner outfield spots. His still steady power bat would shine in the smaller ballparks of the American League East, at least on a limited basis, and he wouldn’t have trouble covering ground defensively at Yankee Stadium.

The Rays are also thought to be interested and may be able to offer more playing time."

Another example of the Great Ned

In a soft mumble voice:
"no giants no braves"

Like "The Professional"

Fernie V said...

I'll take the Pats on this game

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I want the Jets to win, but I'll be rooting for whoever emerges victorious and the Packers next week.

Dusty Baker said...

I want some kick-ass games that give me every reason to sit around the telly all afternoon.

Fernie V said...

come on sports czar you can ride the fence you got to choose a team

Fernie V said...

I do not want to offend anyone and I am a minority & a yellow dog Democrat
but do you think Rush Limbaugh sits around and looks at the playoff QB's and says I told you so.

Steve Sax said...

I have a yellow fish.

Steve Sax said...

Let the Yank-Mes choke on Andruw Jones

Fernie V said...

no giants no braves

Fernie V said...

are we still paying him

Steve Sax said...

Football in ten minutes.

Crowd at Philippe's this morning is pretty quiet.

Spank said...

I want to make sweet,sweet love to Rex Ryan's wife's feet.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I never pegged you for a foot fetishist, Spanky.

Maybe a gun fetishist, or a beer can collection fetishist.

Steve Sax said...

I have a Philippe's fetish.

Spank said...

Don't forget fish fetishist

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Sax - Yeah, but who here can say they don't?

Fernie V said...

@Sax

Dude, that doesn't sound right

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That field looks like it's inches from death.

Spank said...

Da Bears

Spank said...

@ all SoSG FF participants

Yes, I still cringe when see or hear Jay Cutler's name.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I wasn't going to say anything, Spank.

Spank said...

These are the Seahawks I have grown to love

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Cutler's going crazy.

Spank said...

Jay Cutler and Greg Olsen-former Spank's

Spank said...

I'll go ahead and say it. Da Bears ain't going to score next week.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Damn, he ran out of gas fast.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I don't think I've seen anything quite like that drive.

Steve Sax said...

14-3 Jets is pretty damn surprising

NicJ said...

Just saw Kemp sitting courtside by the Lakers bench. Looks like he lost a little weight.

Steve Sax said...

Patsies looking strong coming out of halftime

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Patsies looking weak coming out of five minute mark.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Patsies looking strong coming out of the third quarter.

Eric Karros said...

Cromartie with a bold pickup

Eric Karros said...

Wow, I think it might actually happen

Dusty Baker said...

For the record, pegged Spanky for a foot fetishist.

Golden Globes Thread:

Dusty Baker said...

Note: Finally unsubbed to MKnighSlamathon. Her latest tweet put me over theedge:

"First the Jets Jets Jets embarrass New England in Foxboro, now I'm staring at Julianne Moore and Mila Kunis in their finery. Best. Day. Evs"

Dusty Baker said...

Anne Hathaway...sweet jesus she is attractive.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

===========================

Brief NFL comment: Yay Jets!

===========================

Resume Golden Globes thread.

Dusty Baker said...

King's Speech all the way tonight!

Dusty Baker said...

Sofia Vergara #GoldenGlobes

Dusty Baker said...

Three minutes in: already a Tom Cruise/gay joke.

I approve!

Josh S. said...

YAY BAT-JESUS!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Hah! They cut the mike from Bale.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The orchestra is keeping winners on a short leash.

Dusty Baker said...

Cat spilled my drink- last Sierra Celebration of the season. Dusty not happy.

Therefore 5 mins or so behind the broadcast.

Dusty Baker said...

If they make one more fucking boxing-related movie, I'm going to set off a dirty bomb under wherever Mickey Rourke is.

Orel said...

Saw "True Grit" today. Expertly crafted for the most part, but "King's Speech" is still my favorite. Up next: "The Fighter."

Dusty Baker said...

See my above comment,Orel.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dammit, I wanted Stonestreet.

Dusty Baker said...

"Aston Kutcher's dad, Bruce Willis"

SNAP!

Dusty Baker said...

Chris Colfer up in dis bish! Love it.

Although I agree w MLASC on Stonestreet being deserving, too.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Kevin Bacon has put more effort into his Logitech commercial.

Dusty Baker said...

Kevin Bacon needs to get a grownup haircut. He's not 24, and it's not 1983.

Josh S. said...

*rips up spec script for Mike Tyson's Punch-Out adaptation*

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Andrew Garfield is British?

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

No, no, that works...that's the video game genre that just happens to involve boxing. I'll take that pitch!

Dusty Baker said...

And he can't read, MLASC.

Fernie V said...

What's on your desk

Dusty Baker said...

Rich, FV.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, How to Train...Mrs Dusty needs new shoes.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

In a shocking upset, the movie made by Pixar wins.

It probably should win the whole damn thing too.

Dusty Baker said...

Downey Jr is downright creepy...took that a bit too far, man.

Josh S. said...

Sky just basically said fuck you to Dusty.

Josh S. said...

^ Sly

Dusty Baker said...

I will kick the living shit out of that little pillow biter Sly Stallone.

Dusty Baker said...

Some funny stuff with Fey and Carrell.

Dusty Baker said...

Two for Glee!

Josh S. said...

THOR AND CAP TOGETHER!

(And, oddly, Johnny Storm too.)

Dusty Baker said...

And two from Sofia Vergara.

Dusty Baker said...

"inseminated"..."gestated"...I don't want to hear Helen Mirren say those words.

Josh S. said...

Chuck would beat the shit out of The Cape.

Hell, Morgan could.

Spank said...

FUCK THE PATRIOTS!

Spank said...

I don't need to watch the golden globes.I'll just follow Karina on twitter.

Dusty Baker said...

What kind of racist shit did De Niro just say re waiters? Wow. Dude, that doesn't play well here.

Josh S. said...

Bobby D. was druuuuuunnnnk.

karina said...

Epale veryone!

I didn't know you were having a Golden Globes watching thread over here!thanks Dusty for the hat tip!

Dusty Baker said...

Actually that's the way De Niro is usually. Mrs Dusty has worked with him. He's one of those guys who are genius actors but can't make a speech or interact socially to save their life, e.g., Dustin Hoffmann.

Dusty Baker said...

Glad you could join, K. I just hijacked this thread at the end of the NFL game so those of us Hollywood watcher geeks could talk some smack about the awards tonight.

Josh S. said...

FUCK LAWN GNOME MOVIES

Josh S. said...

HA HA HA THIS TOURIST IS A HI-LARIOUS COMEDY

Josh S. said...

He still could have been drunk.

Dusty Baker said...

Not liking this Social Network winning crap. It's a movie about a god damned website, people!

Josh S. said...

I guess I have to see this Social Network.

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

Absolutely. it is possible to be both socially inept and drunk at the same time.

Believe me, I know.

Josh S. said...

DAMMIT

Dusty Baker said...

GLEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

karina said...

if Megan Fox is famous for her curves, why is she so thin?

karina said...

so it means I have to start watching Glee?

Josh S. said...

Just focus the camera on Santana, dummies.

Dusty Baker said...

Megan Fox has numerous skanky tattoos. What a turnoff.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

I can't imagine you wouldn't like GLEE, Karina. It's right down your alley.

Josh S. said...

@karina

I stood mere feet from Megan Fox at Target. She looks like a Pez dispenser when she's not all done up. (Big head, rail thin body.)

karina said...

She has a Marilyn Monroe tattoo on her left forearm,I think I heard her somewhere she deeply admires Ms. Monroe but you can't be a classical beauty with a tattoo, can anyone imagine Audrey Hepburn, Ava Gardner or Grace Kelly with tattoos? just saying...

Dusty Baker said...

+42 to Karina for that comment.

Those ladies had class, style, grace, elegance, and still do long after they've been gone. Megan Fox will never have that, even when she's still here.

Josh S. said...

Hunnert.

karina said...

@Josh I believe you, it's tv and she looks too thin!. Ms. Fox, take notes from Ms. Halle Berry

Josh S. said...

DAMMIT DAMMIT

Spank said...

I can imagine Megan Fox with a Spank tattoo on her booty.

Dusty Baker said...

Only a hunnert? Feels like we have more comments than that.

Dusty Baker said...

@Josh

Meant to tell you that I was in your neck of the woods the other day and looked up to see a car pass whose license plate said "BRAAINS." Because of my being in your 'hood and the plate, I immediately just assumed it was you. Was disappointed to see that the driver of that black Toyota Camry wasn't you, though.

karina said...

@Dusty Baker *blushes*

it it so FUNNY you thought in Josh when you read BRAAINS.

I have a proposal for the masterminds of this wonderful blog:

can we have "Assassins' Circle" Spring Training Edition?

Josh S. said...

That flower on Natalie's dress kinda sorta makes it look like she got shot in the chest.

Dusty Baker said...

killKillKILL!!!!

karina said...

@Josh I just can look at her face, wow!

karina said...

That was mean, Gervais! Home Improvement was AWESOME!

Josh S. said...

Whoa. Scarf girl in the Bing audition commercial is pretty cute.

Dusty Baker said...

This little fucking dweeb from Social Network better not get this next award.

Dusty Baker said...

Firth first!

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck you loser Facebook dweeb!

Josh S. said...

When's "The Dodger Blog" coming out?

Spank said...

A quick thanks would have sufficed.

karina said...

@Josh we need to work on a screenwriter, a director and a cast! any ideas who could play the Sons? who could play us?

Dusty Baker said...

There could be a movie chronicling the meteoric rise then the tragic fall of Pedro Guerrero as SoSG started from nothing, then shook up the world, but whose success threatened to tear apart the friendship of its creaters.

karina said...

@Spank there's not enough Colin Firth in the world, ALWAYS

Dusty Baker said...

I'm in an industry family...can cover the writing and development part fairly easily.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK SOCIAL NETWORK!!!!!! IT'S A FUCKING WEBSITE!

Spank said...

This should take an hour.

Dusty Baker said...

One more thing: Kevin Spacey, come out of the closet already, and stop molesting little boys in WeHo night clubs.

Josh S. said...

When is the movie about RedTube coming out?

Spank said...

Whatever happened to James Woods?

Spank said...

@ Dusty-7:52

I'd go watch


Off to see the post-ceromony wrapup show by Karina on twitter.

karina said...

hahahahaha Spank, I don't do post-shows ;)

Fernie V said...

My wife Is like 30 minutes behind she rewinds a lot.
I can't believe Social Network won an award.
Anyone seen it and given it two thumbs up

Spank said...

@ Ferns

Dusty gives it two middle fingers up.

Fernie V said...

I'll give it a finger for three middle fingers

Spank said...

So the first game sucked. I could not watch the second game because my Pops was acting like a loon(god bless him). Apparently the Laker game was early(thanks Nic)and now that I'm settled in my pad there is nothing on the tube. I guess I'll watch the Coal Miners Daughter. Fuck it,I'm hip.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Facebook is just a website...

With an estimated value of about $50 billion.

Mr. Customer said...

Hey everybody! What did I miss?

Josh S. said...

@Mr. C: The Social Network beat the Patriots.

Mr. Customer said...

My Bears and Josh's Pack next week? Should be fun.

karina said...

Spank, I like the Coal Miner's Daughter very much

Spank said...

This Golden Globe thread was biased. I just saw that Boardwalk Empire and my homeboy Buscemi won awards but you wouldn't have known from this thread. All Glee and shit.
