Is that Yu Darvish on the left?

Clayton Kershaw takes on the Texas Bridesmaids, winners of two straight runner-up World Series trophies. Go, Minotaur!

Damn, beat me to it! I swear to God I was going to use the exact same picture for the exact same joke, though.

Franklin Stubbs said...

They're halfway to the Buffalo Bills pinnacle of championship futility.

Fred's Brim said...

Let's Go, Buffalo!

Dusty Baker said...

Dusty Baker said...

^ That felt good

Dusty Baker said...

Got something going here early. Up to Ethier to make it happen.

Dusty Baker said...

Base hit by Ethier scores one for the good guys. Ethier's 4th RBI of the pre-season.

Dusty Baker said...

Kid K on the mound today. He's slated to go three innings.

Dusty Baker said...

Sweet shit-sucking jesus do I hate this Blogger commenting layout. It makes me want to hurt someone.

Dusty Baker said...

Monday reminding us what the outcome was in last season's world series.

Hideo Nomo said...

Gameday done froze.

Hideo Nomo said...

The textbox at the bottom is indeed the only good part of the new layout.

Dusty Baker said...

My textbox is still at the top. What gives??

Jason said...

@Dusty -

Narrow your browser window and the layout will reflow so the text box appears below the last comment.

Hideo Nomo said...

Minimize the window...unless you're on your iPad...then you're screwed.

Hideo Nomo said...

Narrow, not minimize. Duh.

Jason said...

Huh, Gameday is back to the 2011 interface with the buttons along the bottom rather than the tabbed frame on the right.

Dusty Baker said...

Oh wow....got it. Damn, I might have to retract some previous remarks.

Hideo Nomo said...

KEMP!!!

Jason said...

Thanks, Charley, for that anti-climactic Kemp HR call. I'm trying to keep my heart rate at a bare minimum today.

Dusty Baker said...

What just happened? I'm on a conf call so had to mute.

Something involving Kemp, I'm assuming.

Dusty Baker said...

Maybe I wasn't on mute and Steiner just didn't say anything.

Jason said...

I guess Ethier's knee if feeling pretty good today.

Hideo Nomo said...

Dre, you may continue to be a surly cranktopus, as long as you keep hitting like that.

Jason said...

@Dusty, yes a Kemp HR. Or a fly ball, if you take Steiner's word for it.

Hideo Nomo said...

Also, according to Monday, the ball went higher than an airplane.

Dusty Baker said...

Lazy pop fly over the second baseman's head and into the center field bleachers, eh?

Dusty Baker said...

Was he quoting Guns N Roses' "Night Train"?

Hideo Nomo said...

I think he was drinking Night Train.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm on the Night Train!

Dusty Baker said...

What inning is it? My GameDay says top of 3rd 3-0

Dusty Baker said...

Make that 4-0.

Jason said...

Steiner sounded disappointed that Dee was safe on that steal attempt.

Jason said...

Rivera gets an actualy homerun call.

Hideo Nomo said...

I like this team.

NicJ said...

Fibonacci box score!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

We're awesome!

Dusty Baker said...

Alright I'm back up in dis bish. 7-0? Am I reading that upside down?

Dusty Baker said...

Sands with a double. My god I think Steiner is in a deep slumber. Is he already tired this early into the pre-season?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

I will be at camelback for the weekend. Hope they play this lineup again.

Hideo Nomo said...

Yes, you are reading that upside down. It is 0-L.

Dusty Baker said...

8008

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Are the Dodgers wearing their blue jerseys?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

46

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Runs?

Dusty Baker said...

We are crushing the fuck out of these fuckers.

Dusty Baker said...

Drips?

Hideo Nomo said...

Matt Angle is the reverse Jamey Carroll.

Jason said...

Castellanos just woke Steiner up.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Castellanos needs a nickname because I don't want to keep typing Castellanos.

Jason said...

Matt Angle is the younger Yoda.

Dusty Baker said...

Castle?

Dusty Baker said...

We are still crushing these putrid pukes.

Jason said...

@MRLASC - Stella?

Dusty Baker said...

Nice Biggie Smalls lead-in to the ninth inning.

RIP B.I.G.

Dusty Baker said...

^ 15 years ago today

(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

I always thought David Ortiz should use Biggie in his walkup music: "I love it when they call me Big [Papi]!"

Dusty Baker said...

Anos?

Dusty Baker said...

Steiner REALLY needs to stop talking about the Mets NOW.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Who's putting up goose eggs for the LAD pitching staff?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Didn't castellonos come over in the furcal trade? His nickname should be Fookie

Dusty Baker said...

Look forward to hearing about your trip to the spring Yard, DBT!

Dusty Baker said...

We win! We win!

Jason said...

Making pre-happy-hour party!

Hideo Nomo said...

New Fookie=Nookie

Hideo Nomo said...

Pronounced NEWkey

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

@nomo I love it, Nookie.

Dusty Baker said...

He does it all for the Nookie.
