Too bad the Dodgers aren't playing a triplebreaster today.

Hideo Nomo said...

You never know...Uribe could pinch hit or something.

Franklin Stubbs said...

"Hit" is perhaps a little optimistic.

Hideo Nomo said...

Pinch flail?

Orel said...

Pinch look-at-strike-three?

Dusty Baker said...

Uh, well ok i guess i better modify my other GT. (cries)

Show me the way to go home
I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago
And it's gone right to my head
Everywhere I roam
Over land or sea or foam
You can always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home.

Show me the way to go home
I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago
And it's gone right to my head
Everywhere that I roam
Over land or sea or foam
You can always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home.

Orel said...

Dueling GTs!

Hideo Nomo said...

Hey man, it's a whole new day.

(Also, I didn't scroll down. Sorry.)

Hideo Nomo said...

Everyone has to comment twice!

Dusty Baker said...

DAMMIT!


DAMMIT!

Orel said...

Wonder if we'll break 100 comments in a doubleheader thread.

Paul said...

Team Nomo!

Orel said...

BLOCK

Franklin Stubbs said...

Eugenio's Streak said...

I pose this question to you. In NCAA football, wins can be taken away.

Could some statistical genius look back at the gnats record, see where PEDlky was influential in a win, remove that, then tell us what their record would be now. I submit atleast 10 games where he was the difference...

Orel said...

Would you be willing to do the same for Manny Ramirez?

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Why don't they just shut Kershaw down already? He's hurting, and the team isn't going to make any noise this year. Even if by some miracle, the Dodgers take the 2nd wildcard spot, they won't have enough pitching to advance. The risk of further injury isn't worth it to me.

Team officials should shut him down and start looking towards 2013.

But we still have to sweep the Gnats on the final weekend.

Hideo Nomo said...

Since the suspension:

SFG: 21-10
LAD: 12-18

That's the bigger problem.

Fernie V said...

Neebs mom once gave me a double header.

Fernie V said...

Like the dodgers I never rounded third, she was to much.

Paul said...

Cleaning out my parents house has been a tough task, but I did find a typed 1993 season preview I made for the Dodgers.

I predicted a great year for Piazza and bagged on Jose Offerman.

The worst to first projection I'll leave alone.

So proud of my adolescent self.

Hideo Nomo said...

At least Twitter spambots still believe.

Paul said...

I like that idea. Let us just vote who gets the last wild card spot.

Spank Horst said...

whoop dat ass

Hideo Nomo said...

Oh hey, we're playing.

Hideo Nomo said...

Ethier GIDPs.

(sighs)

Fred's Brim said...

Game 1 lineup:
Ellis, M, 2B
Ethier, RF
Kemp, CF
Gonzalez, Ad, 1B
Ramirez, H, SS
Victorino, LF
Cruz, 3B
Ellis, A, C
Harang, P

Hideo Nomo said...

Kemp Ks.

Ooof.

Hideo Nomo said...

Thanks, FB.

Paul said...

How many different ways can I ask why is Kemp playing?

Hideo Nomo said...

Have you tried asking in Esperanto?

Fred's Brim said...

godgamn Jayson Werth looks like a degenerate hobo in his pic on Yahoo. It's terrifying! I didn't realize how bad it had gotten for him. Somebody should really get him some help

Fred's Brim said...

I still can't believe we were 17 games over .500 at one point, with the best record in baseball

Hideo Nomo said...

@FB: Werth's inspiration?

Paul said...

The Degenerate Hobos is a acoustic side band for me and Neeebs. Just me on the banjo and Neeebs on the Didgeridoo

Fred's Brim said...

*shudders*

Dusty Baker said...

And Spanky on the skin flute.

Fred's Brim said...

@Paul - that sounds familiar. Did you guys release an album of acoustic Weird Al covers?

Hideo Nomo said...

Shane got on base!

Paul said...

Yup. We play mostly events where Ron Paul
is speaking.

Hideo Nomo said...

Aw man, Cruz! He just walked a guy! Why are you swinging at the first pitch?

Hideo Nomo said...

Shane steals!

Fred's Brim said...

Gotta love a Libertarian Ho-Down!

Ñeeebs said...

Didgeridoo?

All this time I was calling it a Jew's Harp.

Hideo Nomo said...

HARANGCHO ARDIENDO

Hideo Nomo said...

And it's over before I type that.

FUCK.

Fred's Brim said...

intentional walk/HBP?

Fred's Brim said...

at least we cleared the pitcher
*cries after remembering the top of our lineup*

Hideo Nomo said...

Six Men to the Plate, Nobody Scores: The Story of the 2012 Dodgers

Fred's Brim said...

@Hideo - have you read the sequel to that story, Three Men to the Plate, Nobody Scores, Repeat 7-8 Times? It's both striking and depressing

Steve Sax said...

Hey, we're already losing!

Hideo Nomo said...

@FB: I don't know how to read.

Fred's Brim said...

@Gnomes - I got a call once from the NY Times asking if I would like to subscribe. I told them I didn't know how to read. They said OK and hung up

QuadSevens said...

@Nomo I wish I could say the same about a box score.

Steve Sax said...

A-Gon with one out and two on: K.

Thanks Adrian!

Fred's Brim said...

No, Adrian, that's what Hanley does

Franklin Stubbs said...

Is it over yet?

Hideo Nomo said...

I hope Shane goes back to Hawaii and finds Bobby Brady's cursed tiki idol.

Fred's Brim said...

Shane should just try to walk every at bat from now on

Fred's Brim said...

don't forget the smashing his head on some rocks while surfing, or getting decapitated by a falling hotel-room picture

Hideo Nomo said...

Intentional walks NEVER backfire.

QuadSevens said...

I see we're losing again.

Orel said...

Only 6 LOB so far!

Orel said...

We are being defensed to death.

Orel said...

I'm still mad at Cruz for swinging at the first pitch in the second. But I can't get too mad at him.

Orel said...

And that's why! Cochito double!

Orel said...

I just got this email:

<< How's it going sweetie.
Do u feel the spring ? Don't u wanna be loved by smb, to always know that smb is here, just like I do?
I'm pretty sure you r.
So, my name is Allyson. I am young, beautiful, wild, and free. What is more, I'm a girl with no hang-ups and I have no bad habits.
I want to feel a man close to me, which will be able to satisfy me completely, you know what I mean right?) So, if u feel the same way then you r lucky.
To carry conviction, I'll add that I find BDSM attractive.)
I wanna know you better and also I would like to share pictures with you (maybe even something erotic photographs).
I am sure we will make a good couple;)
Don't think too long! I am already waiting 4 your answer.
Allyson >>

Hideo Nomo said...

New blog idea: Luis Cruz's Wasted Doubles.

DodgersKingsoftheGalaxy said...

Say i don't want someone that uses "r"

Hideo Nomo said...

FFFFFFUUUUUUUU...

Orel said...

Comeback: unlikely.

Orel said...

PUNTO WILL SAVE US

Orel said...

See? Shredder double on a misplay by Morse!

Orel said...

I like it. Mellis advances Punto to third, setting up a one-run loss for the Dodgers.

Orel said...

Collins on Ethier: "A groundout should score the run."

This is what it's come to.

Orel said...

Ethier Ks! But not swinging! That's worth something, right?

Orel said...

Kemp continues to swing at crap.

Orel said...

A-Gon in an 0-2 hole faster than you can say

Paul said...

Fuck even bad teams have a lucky game once and awhile. What the hell.

Spank Horst said...

Hit that shit,Orel!

Orel said...

Pepe Yñiguez ‏@PepeYniguez

@sosgsosg haha, no of course this porcine fever is totally different , or piggy fever sounds better.

Orel said...

Hanley flare single!

Hideo Nomo said...

In play, no out > Victorino grounds into a force out.

FUCK YOU, GAMEDAY!

Hideo Nomo said...

SOMEBODY HIT A HOME RUN, FOR CHRISSAKES!

Hideo Nomo said...

Finding it hard to believe we scored the one run.

Spank Horst said...

I don't know why i am still watching this game.

Hideo Nomo said...

Well, Abreu put the ball in play.

Spank Horst said...

Wow,dodgers got a single.

Orel said...

Another underpowered Kemp hit fails to leave the yard. Swing looked great, though.

Hollandsworth said...

bet you all the Cool-A-Coos in the world that we lose the next one too.

Hideo Nomo said...

I...uh...yep.

Spank Horst said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo

Hideo Nomo said...

That was fun! Let's do it again!

Orel said...

Let's lose two!

Orel said...

Game 2 is off to a great start!

Orel said...

1-2-3

Orel said...

Cochito meaningless double!

Eugenio's Streak said...

I have a new theory:

We were doing great with a few all stars & a rag tag, scrappy group of underachievers, people from the minors having time to shine, and so forth. But, then we went and spent a butt load of money and all our "great" new players suck....

The same "great" players that were not so great in other markets this year.

Just a thought

Orel said...

Two doubles wasted.

Orel said...

Two on, two out, full count to A-Gon....

Orel said...

RANCHO ARDIENDO

When's the last time I typed that?

Orel said...

2-0 to Hanley....

Orel said...

RBI(s)!

Orel said...

More RBI(s)!

Orel said...

Oh, and two-run madness!

Hollandsworth said...

ermahgerd.

errfernse.

Orel said...

First KempBI in forever! 4-0 Dodgers!

Cliff Beefpile said...

WANG, bishes!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fucking Gonzalez.

Hideo Nomo said...

I must have driven through a nitrous oxide cloud on the way home. 5-0 Dodgers?!

Cliff Beefpile said...

Wow. Gift run. Fucking run, assholes! Especially you, Beckett, you lazy fuck.

Hideo Nomo said...

Wasted opportunities are easier to swallow when you're up 6-0.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Bryce Harper really does seem like a complete a-hole.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Nice catch, though.

Steve Sax said...

We are winning!

PLAYOFFS!!!

Orel said...

WORLD SERIES!

Orel said...

Looks like the Game 1 loss scared everyone away.

Steve Sax said...

Holy smokes, that AT&T "where r" video about texting and driving is frickin' chilling.

I'm pledging.

Steve Sax said...

6-1 Dodgers, bottom 8

Orel said...

Beckett gives up half the lead just like that. Maybe...it's time to pull him?

Hideo Nomo said...

Well, it was fun while it lasted.

rbnlaw said...

Goddamnfuckshitpissmotherfucker.

rbnlaw said...

Really can't take this shit anymore.

Orel said...

6-4 Dodgers....

Steve Sax said...

6-4, this is not good

Steve Sax said...

and just like that, our lead is gone.

PLAYOFFS!

Steve Sax said...

Nats score SIX in the eighth to tie it.

We SUCK

rbnlaw said...

I would say "Thanks for the season,Dodgers," but i wouldn't mean it.

Expialidociousgoddamit

rbnlaw said...

If the Dodgers pull this out and win, I will post PLAYOFFS with every post I write.


Ain't gonna happen.

Orel said...

FINALLY KEMP!

Orel said...

Same swing as before. Strange.

rbnlaw said...

PLAYOFFS!!!!

Just warming up.

Orel said...

Better program that macro, rbn.

Paul said...

Where do these guys find the guts to blow a six run lead in one inning and then take a slim one run lead?

That's playoff baseball.

Paul said...

I'm gonna take a shower.

You guys better have this placed cleaned up by the time I get out and have a win sealed.

That includes picking up Stubbs off the floor.

Franklin Stubbs said...

*faints*

Orel said...

Okay, rbn! Remember your vow!

rbnlaw said...

Dodgers win

PLAYOFFS BISHES!!!!

Alex said...

we make party?

rbnlaw said...

What's a macro?

PLAYOFFS!!!!!

Fernie V said...

Beast mode is back baby!

Paul said...

We make party on passed out Stubbs!

rbnlaw said...

If Kemp is back to form, this team just might make the


POSTSEASON!!

er, PLAYOFFS!!!
