I really needed this win.

(makes party)

Paul said...

Looks like you really needed a dry hump as well.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Dusty always needs a dry hump.

NicJ said...

Im gonna need a new broom.

Blanco (Spanish Version) Pitbull featuring Pharrell

Dusty Baker said...

I'm gonna need a bigger tumbler of gin.

NicJ said...

What is that little hand on Karina's new avatar?

Dusty Baker said...

Walk [off] - Foo Fighters

Dusty Baker said...

@Nic

Talk to the hand.

karina said...

@NicJ it's my unborn niece hand :)

Josh S. said...

I missed the end. Stoopid eye appointment.

NicJ said...

Oh, Congrats Karina!

She looks pretty smart too. She is obviously predicting what place she thinks the Dodgers will end the season in The NL West standings.

Dusty Baker said...

She is holding up one finger for every World Series title we have.

karina said...

Thanks Nic! we're all very excited and happy. I don't have any doubts she'll be very smart but I agree with Dusty,she's showing Dodgers WS rings instead :)

I'll try to make her to love the Dodgers, even if her dad is a hardcore Braves fan.

Dusty Baker said...

Tias don't let nieces support Braves.

Dusty Baker said...

Karina's Son with a 2-run bomb to tie the game at 3 in Yankmes vs Rangers. Even though I think I should be rooting for him, I actually am of the opposite mindset; the better he does, the more I know the talent was there but that he was just dogging it all last year (and probably longer).

Dusty Baker said...

Beltre is just stroking that ball. Has driven all 4 runs in the Rangers' 4-3 scoreline. Looks like he's taking BP out there.

DAMMIT!

I really need a transistor radio if my kid is going to keep playing baseball on Sundays.

Alas. Oh look! A beer!

Dusty Baker said...

killKillKILL Suzyn Waldman!!!!

Fuck you too, Jon Sterling.

Fernie V said...

Dusty, I thought I didn't know u when I found out u weren't black. But a foo fan, wow, I have found my people.

Paul said...

Love the Fighters of the Foo. Their best drummer is the front man. Kind of like when your best hitter is the catcher.
Pretty cool.

@Dusty:

We're in the same room re: Martin. Dog to get out of dodge. Hustle after being paroled.

MR.F said...

Just got home.

BISON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NicJ said...

Looking over Martin's spray charts ive noticed that he is still doing the thing that made him suck in the first place. I think the pitchers in the AL East will figure out soon that he is just trying to pull the shit out of the ball and they will adjust.

Fernie V said...

Fuck martin, why do these guys leave us and get damn good.

Paul said...

ESPN stole your song Dusty.

Paul said...

Heh Ive got a spray chart for my ex favorite Dodger!

Fernie V said...

Give us some of your favs Paulie

Fernie V said...

My current favorite ex-player is Werth, I saw him play one of his first games in Arizona. He looked awesome, could hit, throw, and run. We would of lost him this past summer to FA, but Werth, Kemp and Either would a been a good outfield.

Fernie V said...

My bad Paul I read favorite ex Dodgers.

Paul said...

I like Werth a lot. He always could hit. He just couldn't stay healthy in Blue.

Konerko is probably my favorite.

Martin was my favorite Dodger. Darth Martin is not.

Paul said...

No problem it was an interesting question.

Fernie V said...

Konerko, sucked balls with us, but u knew he was going to be good. I cried when they traded him, just like I will cry when they trade Sands.

Fernie V said...

I lost my faith on Martin, but one day my wife asked where is that guy that tries real hard and looks like he has a black mom or day, not both.

Fernie V said...

black mom or dad, not both.(damn Autocorrect). I miss his hustle.

Dusty Baker said...

Agree with the Werth comments. I watched him just fucking job the Brewaz today.Made an incredible catch to save run(s) and was all over the damn ball offensively. This is just one cool, scroungy lookin' dude and I wish he still played for us.

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty Baker said...

I just saw ESPN Sportscenter and they used that Foo song, as Paul mentioned. Dammit, I had that first!

Paul said...

East coast always pulling in from the West. Even if they call it the LA sports center.

Btw Martin's homerun tonight at the Ravine would have been one of those frustrating fly ball outs he had the last two seasons.

Greg said...

I was at the game. I admit it. I teared up when Bison got mobbed at home.

Dusty Baker said...

Wish I could trade the futility of the last few games I've gone to with the euphoria that you experienced tonight, Greg.

Although I was pretty euphoric when it happened and yelled enough to disturb my neighbors.

Loney Fan said...

That outing is tied for third best pitching performance so far this year. http://espn.go.com/mlb/stats/topperformers/_/type/pitching

QuadSevens said...

Just got the "Hey Jimbo!" website out of my company's cache. I can finally see the real stuff again. Great game yesterday!
