Javy also got his first career save.

NicJ said...

The Dodgers also got their first win in a long ass time.

Paul said...

Ruby has nasty stuff. I hate seeing him be a bullpen guy but Dodgers need help if they are gonna make that run in June.

*cries*

Steve Sax said...

Orel vaults up to sixth place in the fantasy baseball standings!

Dusty Baker said...

Long term he'll be a starter but it makes sense now for him to come out of the pen.

What are we going to call him? Rubby Alcohol?

Paul said...

At spring training Ruby almost hit me in the head with a high fastball cause Dinner was asleep.

Only my quick beer induced reflexes saved me.

Neeebs said...

*wipes the tears off his face*

Neeebs said...

So not only is attendance down at Dodger Stadium, its also down on the blog. Come out come out wherever you are.

Paul said...

The once prolific Mr. C is secretly posting on a shuffleboard blog.

Paul said...

I guess I could sign in as Buzz Killington but no real buzz to kill this year.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

At least the Sharks lost.

(cries)

Paul said...

Maybe we can adopt a D2 Football team...

Neeebs said...

Sharks gave away that game.

Neeebs said...

Mr. C uses the handle, "sparky" on the shuffleboard blog. Not that I would know that.

Paul said...

Sure Neeebs or should I call you by your alter ego baby boy shuffleboarding name, Weeeble!

Paul said...

That was suppose to be "bad boy" not baby boy. Just gave away my name now! crap.

Neeebs said...

At least you spelled it correctly. Some of them old cods can't hit the e three times.

Josh S. said...

*run-by fruiting*

Neeebs said...

Battery dying. Signing off.

Paul said...

Josh is not helping disprove the Dodger fan/gang member stereotype.

Dusty Baker said...

Just went over and slammed some XX and tequila down the street. Did we still win today?

Now I have to read sister-in-law's GLEE script and give notes. Oh yeah...

Paul said...

Make sure you red pen various Dodgers references in the script!

Steve Sax said...

@Neeebs 9:42p: only the true believers are here--but they're regulars!

Next round is on us at the SoSG bar

Steve Sax said...

Make sure you don't put Mike Piazza anywhere near a scene with Kurt Hummel!

Dusty Baker said...

Oh snap, Sax. That works on so many levels.

Mr. Customer said...

Shit, I'm slipping. My spidey-sense usually tingles when Paul is taunting me, but it let me down tonight.

In all seriousness, I'm totally ready to be out of deadline hell so I can substitute it with baseball hell. Finish line is in sight, though.

Mr. Customer said...

^for deadlines (but maybe for baseball too)
