^ Whoops. Alannah.

Steve Sax said...

Black Velvet. If you please.

Josh S. said...

Welp, I've got my earworm for the day.

karina said...

I so dig a team with the names of "Paul Rand,Jackie Robinson,Dave Navarro and Peter Sellers"

I don't think I'll be around for the game BUT any outcome of this game is good for me :)

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Escaped the first. 0-0. We're coming up.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Wow. Offensive onslaught. Battle of the scrubs.

Mr. Customer said...

That was unimpressive.

Mr. Customer said...

Again with the errors.

Josh S. said...

*Iron Man riff*

Josh S. said...

Miles rhymes with winning.

Josh S. said...

*Iron Man riff*

*kick to Miles' nads*

Josh S. said...

*Iron Man riff*

Josh S. said...

Game over! Broxton gets the...

Wait, it's the 4th?

Josh S. said...

Yeah, that's right! You can fuck up too!

Mr. Customer said...

That's some patented Chris Gwynn small-ball right there.

Josh S. said...

Trayvon!

Mr. Customer said...

Rand Paul should be keeping his Ayn the ball, though.

Josh S. said...

Beast Mode!

I'd say bean him, but no pitcher is that accurate.

Josh S. said...

ChiSox announcers sure love talking about the Giants. Jeez.

Mr. Customer said...

Good to see that Russ Mitchell still sucks.

Mr. Customer said...

Not that I want him on the team. It's just comforting to know it's a universal constant. Like pi.

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty barely up in dis bish. What did I miss?

Josh S. said...

Dusty: Some offense, some fuck-uppery, but mostly me and Customer talking to ourselves and not really acknowledging each other.

Mr. Customer said...

Which is normal.

Dusty Baker said...

I see Least Mode grounded out softly. All is right with the world.

Josh S. said...

Wait, what? We're up 5-1 now?

Mr. Customer said...

Who's this Espino kid?

Dusty Baker said...

BROHEIM REQUEST: can we spoon again Josh?

Ps- Hit yourself over the head with your phone for that Ayn Rand comment earlier, Mr C.

Dusty Baker said...

What is this strange offense - "scoring" I've heard it called?

These broadcasters can't pronounce anything! Although there are some difficult names out there today.

Mr. Customer said...

@DB

Done and done.

Josh S. said...

I swear I'm listening to the game, but I still missed Eugenio Velez's moderately successful performance.

Mr. Customer said...

Coincidentally, beaning myself with my phone produced a similar dazing effect to when I read Atlas Shrugged.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

WE INTERRUPT THIS SPRING TRAINING GAME FOR AN IMPORTANT BULLETIN:

Greg McElroy, former Alabama QB and noted Dodger superfan, scores 48 out of 50 on his wonderlic test.

Resume pithy comments.

Josh S. said...

@Mr. C: I don't know who Espino is, but I know you can anagram his name into O'Penis.

Dusty Baker said...

Either there is a movie version of Atlas Shrugged coming outnsoon or there is a very well-read tagger running around town. I just notednsome who is John Galt scrawlings on a fence across from my office.

Dusty Baker said...

So Pine is another anagram, which likely speaks to where he'll be most of the season.

Mr. Customer said...

@DB

So I understand. I imagine it will make it's point in the first fifteen minutes and then pummel you with it for several hours (if the ratio holds)

Dusty Baker said...

Well god damn. This game is available on video. I don't have to listen to the White Sox broadcast any more.

Mr. Customer said...

Nobody fucks up like De Jesus.

Dusty Baker said...

T Slick. It's been a long time since we sai that name. Mercifully.

Mr. Customer said...

We may not be saying it for long.

Dusty Baker said...

Well shit...I went to yell at IT and when I got back we'd given up 3 runs. Was it T Slick what did it?

Josh S. said...

We've reached the point of the game where the announcers have given up trying to ID anyone.

Dusty Baker said...

Phegley is a fat shit with a stupid name.

That is all.

Actually there is more. IPad autocorrect changes Phegley to "pudgier."

Josh S. said...

Nathan Eovaldi?

Did someone win a contest to get to pitch an inning?

Josh S. said...

^ I, of course, realize that the above comment is the type of thing that drives certain Dodger bloggers nuts.

Josh S. said...

We make thoroughly uninteresting party!

Dusty Baker said...

All the more reason to say it then, Josh.


!!!!!!!!!!!!! <---those are for Nancy Bea

Dusty Baker said...

Did Dee Gordon get to play any SS today? I saw he had one AB. If so, how did he look?

Dusty Baker said...

Oooooohhhh...now I'm curious about that deleted comment.

Josh S. said...

Eh, it was a dumb photo response to your query about Dee Gordon. I deleted it because it wasn't as funny as it was in my head.

(Like most things.)

Dusty Baker said...

I would have laughed I'm sure.

Spank said...

I strongly recommend the usage of hard drugs in all situations.

Thank you.

Steve Sax said...

Love that we've got Ayn Rand references in the same STGT as rampant Dodger "fuckuppery". We're getting in shape for the regular season!

Dodgers 6, White Sox 5. Dodgers had seven hits and four errors: Sellers (throw), Navarro (pickoff), Kershaw (throw), Miles (fielding).

Clayton goes three full and Ks three. Broxton gets the win, Guerrier gets a hold, Eovaldi gets a save, and SoSG Sax gets an ice cream.

Josh S. said...

And Dylan Hernadez is STILL doing Shpunt "jokes."

Josh S. said...

And so is Dylan Hernandez.

Dusty Baker said...

Dylan, man, let it freaking go. Spend your time making weight jokes about SF beat writers or something.

Mr. Customer said...

@Sax

I prefer the term up-fuckery, but it's a matter of taste.

Mr. Customer said...

Is it just me, or does Donnie look like a Dodger Hank Hill in that photo?

Needs a bigger belt-buckle.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

That Kemp ain't right.
