Random rantings and ravings about the Los Angeles Dodgers, written by a small consortium of rabid Dodger fans. With occasional comments on baseball, entertainment, pop culture, and life in general.
We got this one.
Would've figured Ely, but whatever flutes your boat.
I hope he takes clarinettacking the Phillies tonight.
@Stubbs: I was surprised, too, at first. But then, I figured he'd get called up basooner or later.
What I mean to say is, I don't oboer the decision to bring him up over Ely.
Are we only doing woodwinds?
Well, you could do worse than piccolo ranking team like the Phillies for your debut.
@DustyTubad we used most of the good ones up, right?
I guess Dusty should have showed up bifora we used them all.
Yep, I'm googling woodwind names. No shawm in that.
Didgeridoo the percussionsection yet?
It was my decision to keep it orchestral, but you guy can trumpet if you want.
I mean, a fife is more in the military band tradition, but I object to violins on principle.
These comments are cymbalic of our defense lately - embarrassing with lots of errors. I feel the drumbeat of failure.
Giants up 9-0 on ATL in the eighth. Can we just agree they're blowing their wad now, months early?
Criminy I just looked at the rest of this thread. I can't bear to reed all these bad puns.
Sax! O, phoney of you to mock our puns!
God damn it, Atlanta. It's already bad enough without euphonium in.
Hey, is Hideki Ocarina still on the Red Sox?
I should really expect the Jints to be there to pee on our parade, though.
Why is Steven Soderbergh starting for us?
@ArashMarkazi: "My man @RainnWilson is announcing the Dodger lineup right now. Maybe that might inspire a run or two.""Some of the nicknames Wilson used: Matt "Shawn" Kemp, James "Lonely" Loney, Luis "Carnival" Cruz & Stephen "Barney" Fife."
That could have been a better start.
Well, we'll get 'em next time.
Some guys just look like ballplayers.Fife looks like some dude that would at the UPS store.
"Reports have also suggested the Cubs could trade both Dempster and Matt Garza to the Dodgers, which could to be enough to land Lee and more. The Cubs could also sweeten the deal by trading Dempster along with a prospect of their own, or perhaps by including Bryan LaHair in talks."
Yeah, harvest half the roster from one of the worst teams in the NL. Sounds like a winning plan.Also, LaHair had a good month and has been hitting Loney since then.
Ned's not that dumb, is he?
Hey, this Halladay kid is pretty good.
If we're going to take on +$20m in salary, they gotta take some of our crap contracts back. Only seems fair.
@Mr. F: At the risk of not getting invited to ask him questions again, I'd say yeah...he could fall for that deal.
The market price on Cubans seems to have gone up otherwise you know my idea.
First thought after runners on 2nd and 3rd with 0 outs: "We're in business!"Second thought: "Oh wait, Loney will find a way to GITP."
That's a run!
Consecutive ABs where Kennedy didn't Kennedy, and Loney didn't Loney? What are the chances?
Breaking news: Dodgers trade Matt Kemp and $5 million to the Orlando Magic for Ron(Opie)Howard.
Just checked again - we're ahead. How did that happen?
Fife the di-dog is in the house, I see.
Sign more Cubists!
Slappy makes the third out!
There's a game today? When did this happen?
Not only that, but we have more runs currently than do our opponents.
This is usually the time Ruiz fucks us over.
Kemp guns down Howard! Still 2-1. WOw.
Fife Dog gets us out of the sixth cleanly. Solid effort from the lad. Let's get some geico and give him a memorable first win.
Nice catch and tag by Ellis. I did have PTSD from the other night and thought he didn't have the ball on the tag.
He had the ball on the tag, but he may not have had the tag on the tag.
Damn those were going out.
Kemp has given it a ride a few times tonight.
That was loud when Pence hit the wall.
Did Loney just fail at fouling a pitch off?
Don't make me regret my PGT draft, Beli.
Rooeeze HBP to load the bases. I'm torn between schadenfreude and a sense of impending doom.
Just don't let that mofo steal home.
Bring in a half warm Jansen, this will end well.
deep six that pence. oh hell, just six pence
So, was Scott Elbert dead or something? Any reason he wasn't brought in to face Utley or Howard?
God damn it.
This one's on Mattingly
Goddammit, we are blowing it late AGAIN!
What would Mr C say?
Donnie is a bit notorious for letting guys die on the vine.
We need to trade for a real closer like that guy Broxton!!!
I really hope we just fall out of it to the point where we just stand pat. This team has waaaaaay to many holes to fill.
@Nic J: Kinda like Pamela Anderson.*rim shot*
No matter what if we can trade for guys that will be here beyond this year I say go for it. Sadly there are too many holes to fill in just one off season.
I think we should get Dotel back!
@NicThey never seem to implode enough to fall completely out of it, do they?The temptation for a half-assed trade solution is strong, and it worries me.
This umpiring crew blows.
Then because that guy has a decent last two months, we will sign him to a 2 year contract.
Has the ump behind home been cock blocking tonight?
If they want to empty out the farm for someone good (Upton, Headley, so on) go for it. If you are going to trade away the few pieces we have left as a flailing attempt at the post season no thanks.
I want to slap a nun now.
We're fucking due for a walk-off.
Let's get this bastard out.
Even if we lose tonight i say the Dodgers just hijack the high five line.
I can't believe these two relievers turned in such a shit job to deny Fife Dog his first win, a win that would have been memorable in particular because it was against Roy Halladay.
I like that idea, Nic.
^ fo rill
Last chance for a 3rd PGT rewrite, chumps.
I have no confidence that we will score in the ninth. Check that...we wont get a hit.
Kennedy put a ball in play!
Is Rivera using Manny's old batting helmet?
Maybe Donnie sits Loney and starts himself at 1B?
There it is.
Vin sounded sad when he signed off.That's not cool. You made Vin sad, Belli.
I went for a bike ride when they were up 2-1 then came back to this.....i loled
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!I still don't know the score. Not that it makes a difference.
