STGT: Feb 27 vs. Angels, 12n

Holy smokage, it's BASEBALL. On TELEVISION (Prime Ticket / MLB Network). In the glorious AFTERNOON. With a 20% chance of RAIN. Oh well, three out of four ain't bad.

What better way to get ready for the Oscars than to watch the Los Angeles Dodgers take on the Los Angels Angels?

Those of you hoping to watch Jon Garland in action, however, will be disappointed; Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt is skipping Garland ("It's not a red flag," says Honeycutt) and John "Lincoln Lawyer" Ely will take Garland's place instead.

karina said...

should we start keeping track of the Dodgers record when any of us post the line-up?

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

Yes, but not for Spring Training...an exercise in futility.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Exercising in futility is what I'm all about.

karina said...

I should be paid for exercising in futility

Dusty Baker said...

Fill out those Oscar ballots, lads and lasses!

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty, We'll have an Oscar GT, don't worry...

Dusty Baker said...

Suh-weet!

Dusty Baker said...

Hey who is the mystery commenter spammer and how can s/he be stopped?

Dusty Baker said...

Got this shit queued up! Let's do this!

Dusty Baker said...

Can you hear the Arsenal sing? ... I can't hear a @$#!%& thing!

[Sorry RBN]

Dusty Baker said...

Come on you Hammers!

[Sorry Mr. C]

Dusty Baker said...

AC didn't play today, so you're off the hook, Karina.

Steve Sax said...

@Dusty: the spammer is really pissing me off. Rash of links as of 2am plugging his bootleg pirated purses.

Dusty Baker said...

Elymania lives!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

I seriously barely know any of the Lost Angels' lineup. I know it's ST but jesus...who the hell are these guys?

Having said that, they'll probably win.

Dusty Baker said...

Hang up that first K, Karina!

Josh S. said...

Ely!

Dusty Baker said...

Shitty, choppy broadcast on Prime.

Josh S. said...

Anyone else's signal breaking up?

Dusty Baker said...

"James Loney will hold on Trout."

I want that to be dirty, but there's not much there.

Dusty Baker said...

Let's hear a big "DAMMIT!", Josh! First of the season.

NicJ said...

Directv broadcast is choppy too. I think it's the main feed.

Dusty Baker said...

2 Ks!

#Elymania

Dusty Baker said...

Commercials are fine, so it's gotta be main feed.

(cries)

Josh S. said...

DARNIT!!!

(Saving the real thing for the regular season.)

NicJ said...

This is like when I used to watch porn on dialup.

Dusty Baker said...

^NICE one, Nic!

Dusty Baker said...

Blake erupts out of the two hole!

Dusty Baker said...

Hey the LPGA broadcast on the next channel up is working fine. Maybe I should just watch that.

NicJ said...

Bl-ke h-ts a ST-and u-p do-ub-le!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Weird cut - was Dre in the middle of an AB when they went to commercial, or did I get caught in a time warp (e.g., paying more attn to commenting here than watching the game)?

Dusty Baker said...

Duke Snider has passed away.

NicJ said...

Hitting with RISP?!?!

What is this black magic?!

Paul said...

First spring training game and TV signal fails. MLB network switching programming. I hope this isn't an omen of things to come this season.

NicJ said...

Oh good, the clippers commercial again.

Spank said...

I woke up from my coma for this shit. Fuck That!

Paul said...

Oh but the Yanks Phils game came in yesterday perfectly. Fuck the East Coast. *cries*

Dusty Baker said...

They can show me that Clippers commercial a million times, and I'm still not going to buy any tickets.

Dusty Baker said...

Audio feed is fine via the internets, FYI.

Spank said...

I changed my avatar? When the fuck did this happen? What the fuck is going on?!!

Steve Sax said...

2-0 Los Angeles Dodgers of Los Angeles, in the first inning

NicJ said...

Matt kemp got picked off.

FIRE LOPES!!

Spank said...

R.I.P. The Duke

Paul said...

Thank God Prime Ticket didn't decide to black out the game.

I will never forget seeing the Duke on the field opening day a few years back. What a legend.

Dusty Baker said...

@Paul

I was at that Opening Day game, too. Duke was a little wobbly on his knees but it was awesome to be able to get to see him in person and look up at his retired number there in the pavilion.

Paul said...

Go back to Frisco and their buffet table!!

Paul said...

@Dusty

The opening day festivities that year gave me goosebumps. I think Karros' hair blocked out the sun for a few minutes that day.

Dusty Baker said...

Indeed, it was a partial Karros-clipse.

karina said...

Duke Snider :(

#halloffameinmyheart

karina said...

oh I just saw Matt kemp was caught stealing

*shakes head*

I have problems to comment on here...is it the same for everyone or blogspot hating on me?

karina said...

time to impress,Hector Gimenez moron :(

Spank said...

Hey Hey! We scored.

Mr. Customer said...

Hey, lookit that!

Spank said...

I need some menudo,quick.

NicJ said...

Barajas GIDP.

already taking martins place.

Mr. Customer said...

Still, I'll take 3-0 after two.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karina

My Blogger is working fine. Never thought I'd be able to say that.

Dusty Baker said...

Pasadena, where you at!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Good footwork, Uribe! Not that he can see his feet.

Paul said...

Three runs in two innings. We can't be stopped.

Dusty Baker said...

Furcal 2-2 and his speed looks good. Hell yeah, my man.

Dusty Baker said...

I could really use some ice cold beer penis right now.

Paul said...

Get these ugly swings out of your system boys

NicJ said...

Already getting screwed over by umpires.

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp supposedly lost 15 pounds in the offseason.

I absorbed them all.

karina said...

hmmmm Bison, I think you need to work your patience at the plate and Spring Training is the moment for it.

Spank said...

Can someone bean Colletti in the head already?

Dusty Baker said...

NERD ALERT!

I have my photos ordered on my computer so that I can call up keywords assigned to photos, including something as seemingly as esoteric as "baseball seats." You guys know taking pics of baseball seats is a fetish of mine. So I just copied these to my iPad. And I found out one could make a slideshow of a certain set of pics, e.g., my baseball seats set, and then assign music to it for play during the slideshow. So I set it to the old "Talkin' Baseball" song because it talks about the Duke. I've now played the slideshow to the song about 5 times now. I really need a hobby...oh, wait, this is my hobby.

NicJ said...

Hot Sister has a pretty nice inning.

Mr. Customer said...

Good to know our cunning instincts on the basepaths are intact.

Spank said...

For the love of Vin,get this fool off the air already. Colletti too.

Mr. Customer said...

Who the fuck is Sellers?

Dusty Baker said...

We love Rod!

Josh S. said...

@Mr. C: Us, by the trade deadline.

Spank said...

Straight flush,Yo!

Spank said...

KOBE!

rbnlaw said...

Damn you, DB. Had to wait to watch the match. Son had his first baseball game ever this morning.

0-2; played left field. Team won.

rbnlaw said...

@Spank:
Ned sounded like someone already beat him in the head.

rbnlaw said...

Kemp lost over 100lbs this winter. . .right after he dumped Ri-Ri.

Dusty Baker said...

Each of Ri-Ri's thighs alone must weigh 100 lbs.

Orel said...

Epale, mofos! Looks like I missed quite a bit. Working on a Duke post and looks like we have some spam to clean up....

NicJ said...

wowzer!!

karina said...

hey, Ri-Ri's thighs are super got, even for a straight female.

#defendingfemalecurves

Spank said...

Nice double play

NicJ said...

i thought newpowerbiz online store had some poignant thoughts.

rbnlaw said...

Adm. Ackbar in mid-season form.

karina said...

^hot

rbnlaw said...

Oh, Rhi's got some hamhocks on her, fo sho.

And with that, I bow out of Ri-Ri Talk.

Dusty Baker said...

My Karina bait worked perfectly!!!

Steve Sax said...

4-0 Dodgers in the bottom of the seventh, with a man on first and one out.

Kemp scored two on a single to center in the first.

Hector Gimenez (who?) sacrificed in the second to score Loney

Rod Barajas tells Russell Martin to stick it with a solo HR in the fifth

karina said...

my absence is Blogger's fault,Dusty.

however,your bait DID work,you know me too well!

karina said...

for the record,I think KABC is blocked in my country, it also doesn't work :(

rbnlaw said...

JAMIE HOFFMAN IS THE FUTURE OF THIS ORGANIZATION...pending any more Rule 5 drafts.

Dusty Baker said...

QUIT WAVING AT THE CAMERA, YOU IDIOTS!

rbnlaw said...

@Sax
Blogger needs a "Like" button just for your last comment about Barajas/Martin.

Mr. Doctor said...

Late to this party!

rbnlaw said...

and my 4th beer just magically opened.


Spilled some for The Duke (who did star in a Miller Lite commercial many moons ago).

rbnlaw said...

100

karina said...

@Steve Sax he plays for Tihres de Aragua and is a moron and it seems we're keeping him

Dusty Baker said...

I poured out half my only remaining beer for Duke a little bit earlier. Huge sacrifice.

Now I have to get off the sofa to buy more before the Oscars broadcast starts. I'm getting ready to say some things about fashion that will get Karina all fired up unnecessarily - can't wait! ;-)

rbnlaw said...

Think I might go get some tonic water. My Hendrick's is feeling neglected.

rbnlaw said...

Oh Dear God.

The Dodgers are giving away Snuggies (but calling them "sleeved fleece blankets)?
The 7th seal has been broken.


. . .and I'm getting one, fo sho!

Dusty Baker said...

It's not gin and tonic season yet, RBN! Would you wear white shoes after Labor Day?

Dusty Baker said...

Duke Snider hit the last home run at Ebbets Field before the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles. I wonder who has that HR ball?

rbnlaw said...

Am I OK with vodka tonics? I'm all out of whiskey.

NicJ said...

we win!!

going all the way baby!!

Dusty Baker said...

That's fine, RBN.

Dusty Baker said...

5-0! Dodgers win! I Love LA!

Just practicing.

Mr. Customer said...

First Dodger win of the year!

Mr. Customer said...

I don't even want to know what Gimenez did to incur the wrath of Karina.

rbnlaw said...

WE MAKE SPRING TRAINING PARTY!

Dusty Baker said...

@ Mr C

I don't either, but I trust her judgment.

rbnlaw said...

I'm still sad about me Gunners. Freaking Squilacci.

Dusty Baker said...

"Talkin' Baseball" - Terry Cashman

Dusty Baker said...

@RBN

Was it your defender or keeper who screwed up? I couldn't watch. I have both as regulars in my fantasy squad.

rbnlaw said...

Sorry,Koscielny. Still, a Frenchman is to blame!

No French, no peace!

Orel said...

@Mr. C "I don't even want to know what Gimenez did to incur the wrath of Karina."

Hmmm, Serie del Caribe intrigue?

Mr. Customer said...

@db

Indeed. Trending toward "dislike".

rbnlaw said...

DB:
The keeper was helpless. Koscielny stepped in front to clear and whiffed.

"Still I'm Sad." The Yardbirds.

Look that one up, peeps.

rbnlaw said...

Just checked the BBC. Still 2-1 Birmingham City.

Fuck me in the armpit, squared.

Dusty Baker said...

So, both armpits, RBN?

rbnlaw said...

One for each goal allowed. Fucking B-ham. 11 behind the ball and 2 lucky breaks. And Wenger rests Fabregas.

Fuck.

Dusty Baker said...

Fabregas hurt, no?

karina said...

@Mr C @Orel @Dusty Baker Gimenez's team,Tigres, play an extra game to go to the finals,when they finally won, Gimenez,instead of celebrating as normal people on the field,he dedicated very RUDE arm gestures to the crowd.

Leones fans are the most obnoxious fans I have recollection of (yes, even including Giants fans) but I hate disrespectful behavior towards fans, that's all

Paul said...

125+ posts in out first spring training game. Not bad team! Hopefully no one injured themselves. Gotta stay healthy.

rbnlaw said...

I pulled a drinking muscle. My doctor recommends wine.

I complied.
