I like what I've seen out of Uribe so far.

The rest of the team, not so much.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck, Duke is winning big. I'm gonna be hearing it tomorrow.

Dusty Baker said...

Congrats, FB. Much as I hate to say it.

Dusty Baker said...

Dis shit on the telly?

Dusty Baker said...

ON THE SOFA, VINNY!!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

VINNY calling the game today! This changes everything, e.g., I'm not working on my taxes and instead I'm just sitting here with the game on.

Dusty Baker said...

Leadoff single for Raffy.

Dusty Baker said...

Horrible attempt at a bunt by Paul.

Dusty Baker said...

Furcal picked off at first.

Dusty Baker said...

God dammit! Loney gets base hit to shallow center, tries for two, and is thrown out by a mile. Ran ourselves out of that inning.

Dusty Baker said...

I haven't had a chance to watch Ruby DLR yet so looking forward to seeing what he has.

Dusty Baker said...

I can say right off the bat I think Ruby DLR has a very cool glove.

Dusty Baker said...

For the record:

Furcal SS
Paul RF
Loney 1B
Kemp DH
Uribe 2B
Gibbons LF
Robinson CF
Barajas C
Miles 3B
De La Rosa P

Paul said...

Looks like a Star Trek convention so far; lots of soft singles and no scoring.

Paul said...

Johnson out.

Jay is looking blind out there.

Paul said...

Cubs decided to get their playoff beards out of the way in March.

Orel said...

@Paul "Looks like a Star Trek convention so far; lots of soft singles and no scoring."

Bravo!

Josh S. said...

So, does Rubby rhyme with boobie or tubby?

Dusty Baker said...

Bravo indeed.

Dusty Baker said...

Meanwhile CWS up 1-0 in top 3 in our other SS game.

Josh S. said...

Hmm. Vin says "Roobie," so "Roobie" it is!

Josh S. said...

We should have nabbed Zambrano when he melted down. We could use his bat.

Dusty Baker said...

Zambrano sends Gibbons way deep into left to make the catch in front of an advert of some giant but friendly looking creature. Monster Cheerios in to show us what he's got this season.

Paul said...

Opening day sold out....or it it?! *insert scooby doo mystery music here*.

Dusty Baker said...

We could use z's passion, too.

Paul said...

is it. E-Paul.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah, Opening Day sold out except if you get a season package. Then the Dodgers resident Merlin magically creates new seats for you.

Josh S. said...

Hold on to the bag for dear life, idjit!

Josh S. said...

Opening Day was "sold out" the last two years too, but that didn't stop the team from emailing me to sign up for a chance to win the opportunity to buy tickets.

Dusty Baker said...

Fuck TGIFridays.

Just needed to say that.

Dusty Baker said...

Half price food and bev for midweek home games. Alcoholic beverages INCLUDED. That's what I'm talking about. I am calling a lot of staff retreats at Chavez on those days.

Josh S. said...

Fooky!

Dusty Baker said...

Snagged my first baseball cards of the season. Topps. Good looking cards - I like the look. Didn't get any Dodgers though from the two packs I snagged. Got a Big Papi one though, along w Mariano Rivera, Felix Hernandez, Robinson Canoe, and a few other good ones. Thinking of going back to Target for some more until I get some Dodgers.

Josh S. said...

Does he really pronounce Quade as "kwah-dee?" That might be worse than Matt Dye-azz.

Dusty Baker said...

All due respect to Josh's family, but how many fuckin de la Rosas can we have on one team?

Josh S. said...

Mrs. S's maiden name is de la Rosa, so she gets a kick out of the Dodgers having not one, but two de la Rosas.

Josh S. said...

DAMMIT.

Dusty Baker said...

I'd trade this DLR for Jorge DLR.

Paul said...

Smile we are in that family's picture!

Dusty Baker said...

God dammit. Stick man smashes one but right into a glove; Kemp doubled off.

Dusty Baker said...

It's time for Donnie baseball! - I like that.

Dusty Baker said...

Yo Sands: slide UNDER the tag. The goal is not to get tagged by the waiting catcher.

Dusty Baker said...

Rancho SpringTrainiendo!

Dusty Baker said...

WP for a run. 2-1 Blue Men.

Dusty Baker said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

Well god shit a duck. This pitcher is sucking my ass. Cubs take the lead on a long hit to RF and then a WP. Who is this fuckstick pitching? Pfeifer or something like that? He can kiss my ass. I want to win already.

Paul said...

The lead was nice while it lasted.

Dusty Baker said...

Giminez solo HR makes it 3-3. We might still make party! that was a pretty good sized HR.

Paul said...

Bizarro Chris Carpenter gets lit up by Hector!

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp 0-4 today. Last AB looked very undisciplined; he didn't know what he wanted to do up there.

Dusty Baker said...

I thought Jerry Sands had a Blue goatee at first when they showed him standing at first.

Dusty Baker said...

CWS 6-1 over Dodgers SS in the 9th.

Dusty Baker said...

Where oh where are the SoSG boys? Hope you all are well, except for Lasorda.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Fuck you, ESPN. I have to wait more than two hours to fill out my bracket after it's been announced?

Paul said...

Save us Kempleton.

Dusty Baker said...

Thx for saving me some typespace, Marla. I was about to say the same thing.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Props to Yahoo for getting it out quickly. Already got that one filled out.

Paul said...

Kempleton same as he ever was.

NicJ said...

Kemp already in midseason form.

Dusty Baker said...

Kemp has another atrociously undisciplined AB. Had bases loaded and chance to take care of business, but struck out swinging on a pitch that Pau Gasol couldn't reach. Who the fuck is working with this guy on his swing?

NicJ said...

Charles Barkley

Steve Sax said...

Kemp just struck out with the bases juiced in the top of the ninth and a 3-3 game. He is 0-for-5 today. Yay.

Steve Sax said...

All of us dogpiling on Kemp!

Dusty Baker said...

@MRLASC

I like how an internet search company can beat the worldwide leader in sports broadcasting at posting the freaking tournament bracket.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm definitely not dry humping Kemp at this point, Sax.

NicJ said...

Whatever, spring training record doesn't mean much.
Like last year for example we were terrible in ST and when the real season started...

Oh wait.

NicJ said...

Matt Camp > Matt Kemp

At least he made contact.

Dusty Baker said...

Fat Camp > Matt Kemp

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah! Sittdown, bitch!

Dusty Baker said...

"It started Cubs vs Dodgers; it's now Albuquerque vs Iowa." - Vinny

Josh S. said...

OK, fuck Spring. Let's just get to the season. I already know how to be a miserable Dodger fan. I don't need extra practice.

Josh S. said...

Wait, that was cool.

Dusty Baker said...

Lindbloom Ks two...didn't look bad. COnfident out pitch for that second K to get out of the inning.

NicJ said...

That pitch was nastier then that questionable sore on Lindbloms lip.

Dusty Baker said...

^Sorry I added the extra o to his name.

*lashes self*


*enjoys it*

Dusty Baker said...

I told myself I wasn't going to cry.



(cries)

NicJ said...

Maybe this next game will be better.

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

I like our strategy of having SS games so we maximize our chances for suckage in the W-L columns.

karina said...

@Nic J season will be better.I feel it.

*cries*

Dusty Baker said...

Kuroda looks like he's in great form to start the season, though.



(lies)

Josh S. said...

I don't hate the ST jerseys. I wouldn't mind seeing them every once in a while during the regular season.

NicJ said...

these? way back to 1999

Maybe on the road as an alternate but i probably wouldnt want to see them at home.

Josh S. said...

Nevermind. They're actually BP jerseys. Still, they're much cleaner than those '99 ones and could work as an alt uni.
