How bad was the third? 3 errors and only 1 run is hard to do!

Steve Sax said...

Top of the third in yesterday's game:

1 Alexei Ramirez reaches on throwing error by shortstop Justin Sellers. Ramirez to second.

2 Brent Morel grounds out on a comebacker to Clayton Kershaw, Ramirez to third. One out.

3 With Juan Pierre batting, throwing error by Dioner Navarro, and on the pickoff attempt, Ramirez scores.

4 Slappy McPopup reaches on a bunt ground ball to Kershaw. McPopup advances to second on a throwing error by Minotaur.

5 Gordon Beckham grounds to second, McPopup takes third. Two out.

6 Adam Dunn Ks on three straight swinging strikes. Three out.

Where my dawgs at?

Wotcher!

Listening to MLB Radio on XM this morning during my commute, I noted a particularly useless Spring Training Assessment Phrase that I wanted to relay.

"Brandon Wood could really be an X factor this season."

Translation: we have no clue whether he will ever make contact with a baseball again, or if he'll win the triple crown, but probably the former.

Josh S. said...

My other favorite phrase is "So and so needs to hit." EVERYONE needs to fucking hit!

Dusty Baker said...

Except AL pitchers, I suppose. But yeah.

MR. F.P. Santangelo said...

"One x-factor is hitting. The other x-factor is pitching." -Joe Morgan

Dusty Baker said...

"...if he can stay healthy..." always bugs the shit out of me.

Josh S. said...

Hey, even AL pitchers have to hit in June and October.

Dusty Baker said...

Is the final x-factor fielding, I'm guessing?

Spank said...

And there it is.The first Joe Morgan namedrop of the season.Now I can rest in eternal sleep.Thanks Mr.F.

MR. F.P. Santangelo said...

I live to serve.

Fred's Brim said...

Hot dawg!

Josh S. said...

GAARP retires!

A year too late!

MR. F.P. Santangelo said...

Still enough reason to make party!

karina said...

Epale everyone!

So, Carrasco is a potential star and Bills is on the mound,interesting game...

Spank said...

I'd like to give a special shout out to GAARP because if it wasn't for him we would have no......well..GAARP.

Orel said...

from @Dodgers: "Bottom 1st, Tony Gwynn Jr. (via Rafael Furcal) throws out Carlos Santana at home to end the inning"

Josh S. said...

If there's one thing the Dodgers know how to do, it's throw out Santana.

MR. F.P. Santangelo said...

(cries)

Spank said...

Dodgers are losing 1-0.Alright..WooHoo...Lates.

Steve Sax said...

bottom of the fifth, two out with a man on first for the Tribe, who lead 1-0.

Barajas is the only guy with a hit, in 15 ABs for the Dodgers. Get used to this, people.

Steve Sax said...

Jamie Hoffman leads the dodgers in 2011 spring training BA, at .600

Paul said...

Over under on Dodger shutouts this year?

Steve Sax said...

wonderful. de la rosa has the bases loaded here now, still B5, with Shin Soo Choo up

Steve Sax said...

@Paul: you mean, games in which the Dodgers are shutout?

Paul said...

@Sax

Yes. Sorry for ambiguity. I wouldn't want people to think I was thinking about positive outcomes.

Steve Sax said...

Russ Mitchell almost blows the play at first base fielding the grounder, but recovers in time to get us out of the fifth.

1-0 Tribe after five.

Steve Sax said...

three up three down for the dodgers in the sixth

get used to it, people

Paul said...

Just remember the Giants finished first in the Cactus league last year. IT MATTERS.

Not really. Cleveland finished second. Texas finished last.

Paul said...

Over under on how many games before I start accidentally posting in an old game thread....

I say 5.

Dusty Baker said...

I say 4, Paul.

Again I ask: Who the fuck are Man United???

Paul said...

Over under on how many games before we start cursing blogger?

1?

Man United? Isn't that religious group for dudes that wear sun hats and visors?

Dusty Baker said...

I think Karina already had a go at Blogger the other day, in fact.

Josh S. said...

Over/under on how many over/under jokes we attempt?

Spank said...

@ Dusty re:Who are Man United?

A new sports franchise in Frisco?

Steve Sax said...

Jerry Sands, ladies and gentlemen!

solo HR = 1-1 tie

Steve Sax said...

man on second with none out and Ramon "I'm Not Martinez" Colon pitching for the blue

Dusty Baker said...

Ramon "I'm not Bartolo, either" Colon

karina said...

Blogger hates me all these days, is anyone else getting the mysterious frog image on the header and the right column? is Blogger excessively slow for anyone else? does it lose your comments?

:(

to post this,when I hit "refresh" I got "the server where this page is located is not responding" and a good ol' 404

:(

MR. F.P. Santangelo said...

There are frogs?

Spank said...

Frogger

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT, Spank. I was going to go there with Frogger.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Gabe Kapler's banana-hammock made a distinct swishing noise over the radio feed.

Steve Sax said...

2-1 Indians, end of eight

Josh S. said...

Random Distraction:

SPIDER-PANTS!

Steve Sax said...

i'm not having those blogger probs, karina

Steve Sax said...

one out for the dodgers in the top of the ninth

Steve Sax said...

down to our last strike

Josh S. said...

Anyone seen Andre Ethier?

Steve Sax said...

Miles, to sleep.

2-1 Cleveland, FINAL

Steve Sax said...

Thanks, Colon, for WP the winning run in!

Steve Sax said...

@Josh S 2:51, nice pants

Josh S. said...

Colon blow.

Spank said...

*dodges cars*
*jumps on logs*
*eats fly*

Dusty Baker said...

I need a Colon-ic.

Josh S. said...

Expanding on my "Where is Andre Ethier?" question, he's now 0 for 6 with 2 Ks in 3 games.

Josh S. said...

So, season over, basically.

Pack it in, folks.

Mr. Customer said...

Nothing to see here! Move along.

Dusty Baker said...

Pack it up, pack it in/
Let me begin
