But will Dusty and/or Spank be drunk before first pitch?

Dusty Baker said...

There's no doubt Spank will bc I think he never stopped last night.

I'm dead sober. This should be fun!

Dusty Baker said...

The Dodgefather on Face the Nation right now!

Steve Sax said...

There's gonna be a lot of smack talking in here.

I'll try to put together my at-game recap for tomorrow...

Dusty Baker said...

My MLB Network channel is out - noooooooooo!

F you, Tivo.

Dusty Baker said...

MLB GameDay has introduced a game of Bingo to play along with while you are following the game. Interesting...I still want our badge game back, though.

Steve Sax said...

If it's the same one that they had for the ASG, I got a bingo. I got a free week of MLB.tv, which I never redeemed.

Dusty Baker said...

You probably blocked some underprivileged kid from winning that prize and then didn't even have the class to redeem it, Sax. Hope you can sleep at night.

Dusty Baker said...

We get to say Fister a lot for free with no repercussions today.

Dusty Baker said...

Tommy Milone strands the rancho ardiendos to get out of the inning. 0-0 after two.

Dusty Baker said...

A's are on the board first, playing a little small ball if you can believe it.

Dusty Baker said...

Garcia with a great throw home to put out Coco Crisp and prevent another run. Reddick - get this - strikes out to end the inning. 1-0 A's.

Dusty Baker said...

A's are lovable in their years of ineptitude and their small market, low-budget charm. And they are the anti-Gnats in the Bay.

On the flip side, I hate that fucking apostrophe in their name.

Dusty Baker said...

1-1 going into bottom of the fourth. Good one going on here.

Hideo Nomo said...

A's aren't particularly hateable.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah before free agency separated the men from the boys, A's made some good runs. But their fan base was ultimately too small to generate a ton of revenue to pay for the big name players. That combined with their crummy stadium situation brought about a long decline, or at best mediocrity.

Dusty Baker said...

Orel is on vacation, I believe.

Or were you repeating what many Sons readers said to their wives last night?

Steve Sax said...

Still 1-1

Dusty Baker said...

2-1

Dusty Baker said...

Oakland has blown this one open. 2-1 in top of 7th.

Dusty Baker said...

My bingo card ain't looking too good.

Dusty Baker said...

I think the secret is to amass a ton of no-name pitchers by trading away all the good players you have developed, then go on an improbable run by relying on the HR ball by guys who look like they can't hit it out of the outfield.

Dusty Baker said...

Apostrophes tie it on a WP! 3-3

Dusty Baker said...

And then Reddick with the solo HR!

4-3 Apostrophes.

Dusty Baker said...

BINGO bitchez!!!

Dusty Baker said...

Bingo Bitchez Brew was a really bad Miles Davis tribute album that the Flaming Menudos embarked on but never finished due to protests from NOW.

Fred's Brim said...

wow that was terrible

Dusty Baker said...

Turnabout is fair play, or so they say. Now an A's WP scores a DET run to tie it at 4. This is a thriller, if you like sloppy ball.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck Jim Kaaaaat and his critical, things-were-better-in-my-day, Tim McCarver-esque ass

Fred's Brim said...

Cook get the Broxton call for strike 3

Dusty Baker said...

Well shit, this one might interfere with the main game I want to watch today: Nats @ Shards.

Dusty Baker said...

Princess IBB to load the bases. DET has 1 out and a chance to win with a fly ball.

Dusty Baker said...

And the Tigres walk off to take a 2-0 lead to Oakland.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on, Detroit - get to burning shit already!

Dusty Baker said...

On to the Nationals vs Shards game. Come on, you Nats!

Dusty Baker said...

Nats up 1-0 early, by the by.

Dusty Baker said...

45

Dusty Baker said...

Gio Gonzalez walks the bases ardiendo in the second. Now he's a 2-0 count against the pitcher.

Dusty Baker said...

Aaaaaaand a WP scores a Shard. 1-1 and Gio still in trouble.

Dusty Baker said...

Bases still full of ardiendos.

Dusty Baker said...

John Jay w RBI sac fly to make it 2-0.

Dusty Baker said...

Gio still has a no-hitter going, though!

Dusty Baker said...

Nats really have to get something going. Still plenty of time. 2-1 in the top 5th now.

Dusty Baker said...

I think they just found Andre Dawson in Werth's beard.

Spank said...

Why am I watching soccer?

#flea

Hideo Nomo said...

Mothballs' walk-up music is The Big Show's theme? LOLOLOLOLOL

Dusty Baker said...

Nats threatening in the 8th, still down 2-1.

Rain threatening to postpone the O's and Yanks.

Dusty Baker said...

FUCK YEAH, NATS!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

3-2 Nats. Asshole Cardinal fans!!!!

Spank said...

what the fuck happened to Green Bay?They suck.

Dusty Baker said...

Bingo again, got dammit!

Dusty Baker said...

What the fuck happened to Jim Tracy? He sucks.

Spank said...

I'm going back to sleep.

Dusty Baker said...

Didn't you JUST go to sleep, Spanky?

Dusty Baker said...

NATS WIN!!!! MUFUKKIN NATS WIN!!!

Dusty Baker said...

3-2 Nats, who take the 1-0 lead in the series.

Steve Sax said...

It's raining in Baltimore. Alert Counting Crows.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm trying to count those crows but they keep moving around too much.

Dusty Baker said...

5:40 Pacific supposed to be starting time for Orioles v Yanks

Spank said...

Game on

Spank said...

I'm going back to sleep

Spank said...

JETAH!

Hideo Nomo said...

Goos!

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm out, kids. Gonna go get my '80s on at the New Order show.

Spank said...

Death and taxes. Lifes assurances.

Spank said...

Orale Votto!

Spank said...

I can't picture Gnomes at a New Order show. A Star Wars convention,yes. New Order,no.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm having trouble seeing Gnomes at that show, too, gettin' his Blue Monday on.

Dusty Baker said...

CIN up 2-0 on a Joey Votto single in the 4th.

Dusty Baker said...

4-0 CIN now. Hells yeah!

Dusty Baker said...

Still 2-2 in 7th in O's v Yanks.

If O's were playing A's, would it just kill me with all those apostrophes?

Steve Sax said...

Ashley Madison chased

Dusty Baker said...

Billy Madison just graduated from second grade.

Dusty Baker said...

Wash yer hair, Timmeh!!!!*


* In relief

Spank said...

FUCK THE GNATS!!

Yahoo motherfuckers!

Dusty Baker said...

Spank said...

Smack this!

Spank said...

Dusty Baker said...

Russell Martin just hit a fucking home run. Culero Russ.

Spank said...

Commies!

Dusty Baker said...

Jay Bruce drives in a pair to make it 6-0 Reds!

Dusty Baker said...

Are you watching the Venezuelan elections, Spanky?

Spank said...

Hells yeah,Dusty. I'm going to start riots up in dis bish!

Dusty Baker said...

Let's burn some mattresses!

Dusty Baker said...

Neeebs mom is mad that I burned her mattress.

Dusty Baker said...

Rout is on in SF. CIN up 8-0. Stick a form in this mofo, mofos.

Dusty Baker said...

Spank said...

WOOFUCKINGHOO!!!!

Dusty Baker said...

9-0 now. Commies over chardonnay sippers.

Spank said...

*crack*

Spank said...

One hit for the Gnats. I like that.

Spank said...

I think the A's lost. I'm not too sure about that because i was comatose at that time.
