Random Notes

It's a lot nicer to go into an off-day with a series victory. Over the Giants. And Tim Lincecum. Yeah, I feel a lot better than I did going into the last off-day. (There are no NL West teams in action today, however, which sucks. You mean I have to do WORK???!!!)

  • Steven Cohen, the hedge fund manager who resembles a sith lord, was rebuffed in his bid to buy the Dodgers. Now Cohen is looking at the San Diego Padres as a potential buy. And they're tired of being strung around along! Yep, nothing like taking potential owners, who could infuse new cash into a franchise, and pissing all over them before the process even gets rolling. (SD Union Tribune)
  • Scott Van Slyke's great debut last night does have some related downside; Juan Rivera is on the 15-day DL. And the pundits on the radio say that it's worse than that. (
  • Meanwhile, Jerry Hairston's hammy isn't improving, either. (
  • Oh, and in the article linked above? AJellis needs a rest, too. (Matt Treanor, guy with bug eyes, gets the start Friday night vs the Rockies.) But why show a picture of buggy eyes, when we can show a picture of Misty May Treanor?

(Holy smokes, those eyes are kind of buggy, too.)

Is "strung around" the right phrase? I thought it was "strung along".

Buggy eyes indeed, Saxy

Mrs. Treanor's best side is her BACKSIDE! (HEY YO!)

I'll be lurking here all week...

How is not having Rivera around a bad thing? The guy is just plain bad all around. Marcus Thames all over again.

It's one thing to have some serviceable vets to fill in key holes in the squad. It's another to have damn near a squad full of them and then seeing them quickly break down after daily use.

Uh oh. Kobe has the shits. He's going to score fifty points tonight and Bynum's going to throw another tantrum.
