Last night, after RBNLAW hired a hypnotist:

Hypnotist: You are all very good players.
Players: [chanting in unison] We are all very good players.
Hypnotist: You will beat Dodger Diaries.
Players: [chanting in unison] We will beat Dodger Diaries.
Hypnotist: You will give one hundred and ten percent.
Players: [chanting in unison] That's impossible. No one can give more than one hundred percent. By definition that is the most anyone can give.

This is an obscene hour to be awake at.

Greg Zakwin said...

Neeebs * said...

The obscene part is that it is a Saturday.

Central Valley Fan said...

Obscene? I left the house at 4 am!!!! Just passing magic mountain!

Central Valley Fan said...

Btw, are they testing us for performance dehancing drugs?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Did Nomo homer yet?

Hideo Nomo said...

Nomo's the first Son here, apparently.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

DelinO is waiting in the shadows for the right move.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

People gotta start showing up soon, right?

Dusty Baker said...

Where the lineups at?

Hideo Nomo said...

We have a team!

But I'm winded from playing catch.

Hideo Nomo said...

Neeebs is writing the lineup as we speak.

Hideo Nomo said...

Game has started. Two pitches two outs.

We're batting.

Dusty Baker said...

To my SoSG peeps:

Sorry I've not passed match fitness today. Still down with the croop or plague or some such nonsense. Keeping a brother down. I barely have a voice and am coughing my fool head off. And I'm sober.

Hideo Nomo said...

First beers being consumed, thanks to Orel.

Spank Horst said...

Damn. And here i was hoping for late inning heroics from El Montanero.

Dusty Baker said...

I feel better knowing there's beers being consumed.

Fred's Brim said...

Maybe we should have had some pregame beers

Dusty Baker said...

Props to CVF for traveling as far as he did to represent!

Hideo Nomo said...

It appears I owe Marla a Coke.

Macciello is here...in full Dodger uniform.

There is crying in softball, by the way. Not in baseball, but in softball.

WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU FOOLS?

Hideo Nomo said...

22-5, TBLA

*scored from first*

*died*

Dusty Baker said...

Nomo can outrun Loney! Love it.

Is that a final? If so, that means five beers between games for you lads.

Fred's Brim said...

22-5? Ouch
Cmon guys, let's the third one!
Or be the drunkest team when it's all done

Dusty Baker said...

Is there a prize for the drunkest team?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Back from D-Backs FanFest. How badly are we doing?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Does Macciello have Led Zeppelin songs for his walk-up music?

Hideo Nomo said...

Yeah that's a final.

Pitcher of Dos Equis purchased and no Dusty to mooch from it.

Bummer.

Dusty Baker said...

Cc: RBN

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I guess the team's having its pizza and soda now.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

DBT going 1-4 on the day... And 4-4 on the Stella Artois

Dusty Baker said...

@DBT

Trying to figure how to score that on the scoresheet. Cause I am scoring at home.

Dusty Baker said...

@Marla

How was the D-bags' fan fest?

Hideo Nomo said...

Pizza yes. Soda sitting untouched.

Dusty Baker said...

What is this strange "soda" you speak of, again?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

FanFest was packed. People said it was never that crowded before. I couldn't even get any autographs.

Dusty Baker said...

I would only want one D-bag autograph: Gibby

Central Valley Fan said...

Things not heard in our dugout, damn cvf, you smoked that ball!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'll take the sodas if nobody wants them.

Dusty Baker said...

Heh CVF. You'll get me next time.

Hideo Nomo said...

Watching LFP vs. VSIMH. Macciello playing center for LFP.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Nomo - Have you spoken with him at all?

Spank Horst said...

Zumba is sexy.

Steve Sax said...

is it cold as fuck out there?

Steve Sax said...

I just looked up where West Covina is.

Holy shit. I couldn't make that trek without rations.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Has the third game started yet?

Dusty Baker said...

If there were any less real news being posted here, it would be FOX News.

Spank Horst said...

shit! did everyone pass out on the field?

Dusty Baker said...

I'm passed out on my sofa, Vinny.

Steve Sax said...

On the sofa, Vinny!

Steve Sax said...

Doing a triple axel, Vinny!

Central Valley Fan said...

3rd inning, 17-0, but we did WIN the coin toss!!!

Dusty Baker said...

@CVF

Who is pitching?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I think it's over.

Dusty Baker said...

I think it should be over.

Neeebs * said...

Dusty Baker said...

What was the final damage, lads?

Dusty Baker said...

PGT up!

Central Valley Fan said...

Bad news, we lost all three. Good news, we can't do worse next year!!!!
