Nine-word GT. Minimalist. Very nice.

NicJ said...

Well, good hitters tend to have trouble with the knuckleball, maybe shitty hitters will come up with the opposite result. Could happen, right?


(cries)

Dusty Baker said...

Whoaaaaaaaa, Nic - heavy!

Let's hope you're right.

Fred's Brim said...

(tries) to stay positive

Let's sneak a split of this series

*Cries like Spanky without his tall boy*

Like PJ w/o his vino.

Neeebs * said...

like DB without his Lucky Baldwin

Fred's Brim said...

like Ned without his stupid cowboy boots

Orel said...

Marla's in the house!

Dusty Baker said...

Our offense has been on the minimalist side, regrettably.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I have returned to commiserate.

Fred's Brim said...

Stubbsy, can you play first tonight?

Franklin Stubbs said...

If by "play first", you mean "get liquored up", then yes. Yes I can.

Orel said...

The Giants called up Brad Penny.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Well, there's something to feel good about!

Orel said...

@Buster_ESPN: "Dodgers are talking to Astros about a trade that would send Jed Lowrie to the Dodgers,with minor-leaguers Zach Lee and Garrett Gould to HOU."

Franklin Stubbs said...

I don't really feel so good about that, however.

Orel said...

That sounds like the SHITTIEST DEAL EVER.

Orel said...

RA4NY

Orel said...

And I'm not talking about their SP.

Orel said...

Harang Ks Murphy to get out of the inning. 24 pitches in the 1st.

Franklin Stubbs said...

It's a little early to be dodging bullets.

Orel said...

Under/over on # of pitches Dee takes?

Orel said...

Dee Ks in six pitches. Okay.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I like that we've found a way to make a strikeout motivational.

Orel said...

1-2-3 on 13 pitches for Dickey.

Orel said...

Antoni van Leeuwenhoek bunt grounds out!

Orel said...

Last time he was on base, do you think Josh Thole second?

Orel said...

@Ken_Rosenthal: "Sources: #Dodgers' talks with #Astros involve Carlos Lee, not Jed Lowrie. Lee would need to approve deal. Has right to block trade to LAD."

Orel said...

An aging, overweight corner infielder? We've got one of those already, thanks.

Orel said...

I'd rather have Derrek Lee.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'd rather have Henry "Light Horse" Lee

Orel said...

1-0 Mets in the 3rd. Dodgers lose.

Franklin Stubbs said...

This game seems to be following the old, familiar pattern.

Orel said...

I'd rather have Cherries Jubilee.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Or Clement Attlee

Orel said...

@TBrownYahoo: "As of now, P Zach Lee, Dodgers' first-rounder from '10, not part of Carlos Lee discussions...."

PHEW

Orel said...

Harang breaks up the no-hitter!

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'm practically giddy.

knapS said...

Dammit. Quit playing with my emotions with all this trade talk. Seriously I'd feel much better if we had Jerry West as GM.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I'd feel better if we had Mae West as a GM.

knapS said...

I got denied entrance to the booze thread. Damn you Zuckerberg.

knapS said...

I'm outta here.

Orel said...

@jonmorosi: "RHP Garrett Gould, #Dodgers No. 6 prospect entering year in BA rankings, has come up in Carlos Lee talks, source tells http://FOXSports.com."

Hideo Nomo said...

Kevin Kennedy has been all "CARLOSLEECARLOSLEECARLOSLEE" for at least the last few Dodger Talks. I had no idea he had any say in trades.

Orel said...

IBBs always work out. 5-0 Mets.

Franklin Stubbs said...

Jaysus Hornblower Christ, we are awful.

Orel said...

@Nomo: Well, he was a manager once, you know.

Orel said...

"Coaching visit to mound."

"Okay, Aaron, stop that."

Orel said...

The Dodgers are regressing spectacularly.

knapS said...

BOOOOOOOOOOO

Hideo Nomo said...

This is RADickeylous!

Franklin Stubbs said...

This team. What a bag of dicks.

Hideo Nomo said...

At least we should stay only a game back.

SEE WHAT I'VE BEEN REDUCED TO CONSIDERING A POSITIVE, DODGERS??!!

Orel said...

Ha ha, 8-0 now!

Franklin Stubbs said...

*bangs head on desk repeatedly*

Orel said...

Doesn't being good friends with Clayton Kershaw mean anything in the majors?

Hideo Nomo said...

I...just...yeah.

Franklin Stubbs said...

I don't know if there is currently a worse team in baseball than this monstrosity.

Franklin Stubbs said...

It's as bad as the start was good.

Orel said...

A.J. Ellis denies Dickey his third one-hitter of the season. That's totally better than an actual win for the Dodgers.

NicJ said...

Loney is starting to get Booed pretty heavily.

Orel said...

He'll be much more comfortable in Houston.

Hideo Nomo said...

Hey guys, this up-fuckery is headed for a national audience the next two days. Joy!

And Joe Buck is calling the game tomorrow. Double joy!

Hideo Nomo said...

Giants lost!

10-run 8th coming up!

Hideo Nomo said...

My god, that Uribe swing at the first pitch! If it wasn't so sad, it would be hilarious.

Franklin Stubbs said...

It is sad. And also hilarious.

DelinO said...

How come Monday isn't Magic Mike night?

DelinO said...

If anyone can get my kid to fall asleep, my kingdom is yours. Or we can round up and I'll pay you five bucks

DelinO said...

I think this game's rendered everyone unconscious

Paul said...

Is Carlos Lee Cuban? If not I don't like the deal.

Paul said...

This game was worse than the King Kong Bundy vs Spike Lee Jones match.

Paul said...

Dammit i mean SD "Special Delivery" Jones.
