There will be more times to boo Carlos Quentin, if not tonight:

"There's been many different ideas and thoughts and concerns out there," Quentin said Sunday. "Let me say this as far as the Dodgers series: Obviously I will miss the upcoming one but I will be a part of the rest. We play them many times."

We'll be ready, Quentin!

MR.F said...

Is he not appealing?

Hideo Nomo said...

No, in fact he's revolting.

MR.F said...

I'm glad you made that joke.

Orel said...

AC, Dusty & Orel in the house

Dusty Baker said...

@sax

Aren't they all number 42 tonight?

Dusty Baker said...

A number of our lads are wearin their socks the right way tonight, I note with appreciation.

Steve Sax said...

Wish I could be there, Sons! Bring home a win (and Quentin's head on a pike)!

Alex Cora said...

One of the best national anthem renditions at dodger stadium.

Dusty Baker said...

I wasn't expecting Rachel Robinson to be here, and escorted out by Magic no doubt. Color me overwhelmed with emotion.

Orel said...

Magic is so generous. Everyone gets a photo op.

QuadSevens said...

On the sofa Vinny!

karina said...

"and the Dodger frustration continues" says Vin

Paul said...

*pukes*

Wicks said...

3 LOB in the first inning? SHOCKING!

Spank said...

Spank said...

Hideo Nomo said...

I....

Stults?

karen said...

Sistah...You're right. Those former Dodgers always come back to haunt us. (Think Cody Ross).

Spank said...

this evening will not end well. i'm surly like a mofo,i gots lots of booze,the dodgers suck and i can't find the fucking tv remote to shut the fuck up the padre announcers.

Orel said...

Eau de impotence at Dodger Stadium

Orel said...

Will the DS basepaths become Gilligan's Island again?

karen said...

AGON!!

Spank said...

here we go

Orel said...

Is Chad hurt again?

karen said...

C'mon Billz. Put a stop to this crap.

karen said...

No soup for you Stolz

Orel said...

Will Stults wear a Dodger or Padres hat into the Hall of Fame?

Paul said...

Wow Crawford.

Spank said...

fucking crawford. this dude is for real.

karen said...

I heart Crawdude!

It's the shoes.

karen said...

Dennis Martinez.

I was at that game.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Howdy all.

C'mon, Dodgers, today sucked enough...let's get a W tonight.

QuadSevens said...

Nice hook to get Blanks.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Happy Jackie Day everyone.

QuadSevens said...

Same to you DBT!

Cliff Beefpile said...

A couple more solid hits like that by Kemp will certainly help.

QuadSevens said...

Kemp with a lead off double, moved over by AGon. 1 down and Ellis scores him!

Cliff Beefpile said...

A HIT WITH A RUNNER IN SCORING POSITION!

Spank said...






(cries)

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Didn't Eithier just have a 3-0 count?

Spank said...

shazbot

Cliff Beefpile said...

One run, yeah that's enough of that. Don't wanna overdo it.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Being able to call someone Jerk-O and get away with it is the only bright side to playing the madres.

Paul said...

Nice play sellers.

Paul said...

But now 5-3.

Paul said...

But now 5-3.

Paul said...

Free more Cubans!

Paul said...

Booooooooo!

Orel said...

Great seeing Mr. & Mrs. Dusty! Also ran into AC and his pops before the game!

Orel said...

@Karen: That rocks (re: El Presidente)

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

JP Howell? I was just thinking today that I have yet to see this guy on action, and here he is. Show me whatcha got

karen said...

@ Orel...I was there with my {then} husband. He knew nothing about baseball and couldn't appreciate what he saw.

I said then, right?

Steve Sax said...

I'm starting to wonder if McGwire isn't at least some of the problem here.

MR.F said...

Come on guys~!!!!!

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

JP Howell me likes

Cliff Beefpile said...

Is it me or are they not showing Mark McGwire at all? I haven't watched every game this season, maybe half of 'em, but I haven't even heard his name mentioned.

I guess I wouldn't wanna be shown either if I were in charge of this pathetic offense.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

It sucks that both our SS and 3B are automatic outs

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Afterburners baby!

Dusty Baker said...

Did You See Jackie Robinson Hit That Ball? being played bt top and bottom of the 8th with nice Jackie imagery on the Dodgervision. Sweet production tonight.

Did you see Luis Cruz hit that ball? No. No you didn't.

Steve Sax said...

If Dre doesn't hit a HR, we score 0 this inning

Orel said...

Two on, no out....

Steve Sax said...

Ethier walks. First and second with no outs, but black holes coming up.

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Has Dre worn that same dirty ass old helmet for the past 6 years? Doesn't he know McCourt is gone and he can request a new one?

Orel said...

@Karen: Dude had it coming

Steve Sax said...

Let me guess, Urine PH?

Steve Sax said...

Dodgers 3-for-11 with RISP tonight

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Great, a .167 hitter is our best guy off the bench. Hell put in Babe Ryuth

Steve Sax said...

Schumacher announced as PH

Pride of Dong said...

Games the dodgers are supposed to win this year:
Opening Day - Check
Jackie Robinson Day - ?
Last game of World Series - !!!

Paul said...

I'm going to bed. This team is crap.

Orel said...

Shit

Orel said...

Shit

Steve Sax said...

What

The

Fuck

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Oh well...

Hideo Nomo said...

I...can't...even.

Steve Sax said...

Fire the whole damn coaching staff

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

How much longer until Hanley comes back... And Gordon is recalled from AAA?

Steve Sax said...

You don't try and steal home on Jackie Robinson Day, you idiot

Steve Sax said...

I'm going to start calling him "Carnival" Cruz

Steve Sax said...

Because shit is rolling down the walls it is so bad

Dusty Baker's Toothpick said...

Where's that panic button?

karen said...

I am rereading Steve Howe's book Between the Lines. I had forgotten that he tells the story of the horrible car accident he was in with his then fiance and her parents. He said a drunk driver 's car was going about 100 mph and the tire hit the dirt and he lost control and hit them head on. It was very eerie because the way I remember him dying was hitting the dirt on the soft shoulder out in the desert on Hwy 10 and rolling his truck. I don't know if there were any drugs in his system. I remember the newscast saying he fell asleep.

Pride of Dong said...

At least we have Kemp coming up in the 9th...

*cries*

Pride of Dong said...

At least we have Kemp coming up in the 9th...

*cries*

Neeebs said...

Is it too late to revamp the bench?

Neeebs said...

When you yell at TV cursing Mattingly for NOT pinch hitting Uribe, you know there are problems in Chavez Ravine.

Orel said...

This is the worst game I have seen in quite some time. And the longest.

Neeebs said...

It's been such a long time. I think I should be going.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I've got more than a feeling this season is gonna suck.

Steve Sax said...

PGT up. I'm saltier than the Dead Sea.

Dusty Baker said...

@Karen

Was between the lines highway imagery, or a cocaine metaphor for Howe?
