Hey people, there's baseball today too!

Orel said...

Looking at this D'backs lineup — how did they ever win the division?

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

Jesus, I think Uecker's about to blow out his colon.

Mr. Customer said...

Jesus hates the Yankees AND Bob Uecker's colon.

Orel said...

Yankees: Lost!
D'backs: Losing!
Go: Cards!

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK the Cards!

Josh S. said...

Carp's got nuffin'.

Dusty Baker said...

I bet Chris Carpenter couldn't see where to pitch because of all those white towels being waved by Phiwwies fans.

Dusty Baker said...

HA HA! Victorino can't hit off this guy when everyone else can.

Dusty Baker said...

ps- FUCK you Andy Rooney!

You, too, Wayne!

Dusty Baker said...

4-0 Phiwwies with Cliff Lee looking solid. Bye-bye Shards?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Theriot? Really, Cliffy?

DodgersKings323 said...

So this is what i saw in Arizona...
People actually go through the trouble of making "Beat the Dodgers!" T-shirts. Matt Kemp is ok to boo for some reason, oh and our team is bankrupt so we can be made fun of because of it or something or other...
The bring in a bunch of WWE style signs with lame sayings on them, all look to be made by the same person.
The Upper deck goes 40 rows high, you would be much better off watching it on TV if you have to sit up there.
Even in September it's 100F, but at least they have neat buttonless crosswalks that are synced with the traffic lights :)
And the stadium staff seemed pretty cool, didn't bother me with any fake security or hassling about your ticket. Bathrooms have some funky layouts.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I hate that guy.

(referring to Ruiz)

Dusty Baker said...

Can't believe Kid Arkansas let that inning get away like he did. Wonder if he'll go Halladay and never allow another base runner, ever, now that he's mad about it.

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, is this supposed to be the Latter Day Saints UltraThread?

DodgersKings323 said...

And the fans don't cheer until they put up that LED banner "Louder!!" but at least the transit system and the US Airways center looked neat. A million 26 or 32'' LCDs, how i wish we just had a handful for each level over here. A state that is pro-gun but not pro-firework is pretty useless though...

Dusty Baker said...

@DK323

But if I travel there, will I be considered an illegal immigrant by the state?

Dusty Baker said...

Theriot? Theriot?

Ross Ohlendorf I could believe, but Theriot?

Orel said...

Is there anything sweeter than watching Shane Victorino barely miss a ball then run face-first into the centerfield wall? I think not.

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

Yes. Watching Kuo hit Victorino in the face during an AB.

Dusty Baker said...

Cliff Lee is dealing with a 4-0 lead. What could go wrong?

====

How are these light-hitting white guys + Pujols ahead?

Dusty Baker said...

I wish more people were here in this thread. I have so many important things to say, such insight to offer.

Dusty Baker said...

(cries)




Sorry, it's habit.

Orel said...

You pulling for the Phils, Dusty?

Rollins picked off!

Dusty Baker said...

Yes, Phiwwies, Orel. I would pull for the Hutus over the Cardinals.

Spank Horst said...

@ White Chocolate re: 7:25pm

Nope. You're still a cracker,fool.

*runs across the mexican border to Mexico*

Orel said...

An Arkansas thing, if I recall correctly.

Dusty Baker said...

Cracking me up, Spank. We should run some ganja
back and forth when you get set up there.

Orel said...

Although I enjoy watching La Russa squirm.

Orel said...

Seems rain is de rigeur for the playoffs.

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

Exactly. Grew up in Shards nation and I'm still not over it despite years of therapy and self-medicating.

DodgersKings323 said...

Setting up to be a wonderful day in Philly sports

Dusty Baker said...

@DK323

And to think there are some folks out there who went to the Eagles game and then to the Phills. #OhForTwo

DodgersKings323 said...

So the Philthies switched the pens to have their fans talk smack to the visiting players, very classy.
I will laugh if the E-gals miss the playoffs.

Dusty Baker said...

The whole place just oozes with class, doesn't it?

Orel said...

Pujols thrown out on the basepaths for the second time tonight.

DodgersKings323 said...

Pujols estas cagando el palo!

Dusty Baker said...

^sideways

Orel said...

PHILLIES LOSE

Dusty Baker said...

We're all square at 1 in all but one series. Loving postseason!

Josh S. said...

I am pleased with all three results today.

Orel said...

Agreed.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm pleased with my fantasy football result.
