Things to Chew on During the Off Day

Since June 22, Dodgers are 40-8. Dodgers have gone from last place, 9.5 games out, to first place, 7.5 games up, since then.

Since the All-Star Game break, Dodgers are 23-3. Dodgers have won 8 games in a row.

We've got Andre Ethier hitting pinch-hit, opposite field home runs at Dodger Stadium at night. Juan Uribe is valuable to the team's success. Nick Punto and Skip Schumaker are playmakers. Puig is our Cuban Jesus. We win even when Capuano starts. And we've done it all without Matt Kemp.

It's been a roller coaster season, to be sure. But like a roller coaster, there are scary moments and there are fun ones, and all you can do is keep your arms and limbs inside at all times and enjoy the ride.

"Every team has a good run! Why not us?!" -FB, June 18, 2013. It was a Belushi like pep talk that reached the Dodgers ears.

FB is the frontrunner for SoSG MVP.

Paul, you could still give me that hundred bucks if you want to get back into contention.

Hideo Nomo said...

Also, there is no such thing as SoSG MVP.

Hideo Nomo said...

But I'll still take a hundred bucks.

Dusty Baker said...

I thought we gave away a MVP (Most Valuable Puker) award at SoSG Fest II?

Paul said...

I have a bad habit of trying to use my bad luck for the betterment of the Dodgers.

I should stop with the Marmol homerun free giveaways. I need to save up for the World Series ticket I promised FB. (See above).

Hideo Nomo said...

Hmmm...I know DelinO voted you Most Villainous Poacher.

Hideo Nomo said...

I keep watching the replay of Puig's double. He comes into frame like he was shot out of a cannon.

Paul said...

I'm not sure how my body will react to a loss. I might need to go to the hospital

Fred's Brim said...

MVP? It's a real honor to be mentioned in that conversation. There's a lot of season left though. I am just happy to playing with a great bunch of guys and gals. If we keep winning, I won't need anything more than that.

I was actually named MVP (Most Vile Pornographer) at this year's AVN Awards for my film "Pacific Rimming."
Think "2 Girls, 1 Cup" meets "Transformers 2"

Hideo Nomo said...

Transformers 2 had a giant pair of swinging robot balls, so it's not difficult to imagine.

Dusty Baker said...

My money was on World Whore Z.

Hideo Nomo said...

I prefer my porn parodies a tad more intellectual, like "Blew Jasmine."

Sax: I beat 391 on the computer!

Fred's Brim said...

They don't call us the classiest Dodger Blog on the interwebs for nothing!

Paul said...

Speaking of, California just outlawed "revenge porn", no not the Flaming Menudos, Cholos with Visors super group. Something completely different.

Hideo Nomo said...

Montezuma's Revenge porn is still allowed.

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, does that mean we have to claw back several Flaming Menudos live concert DVDs, then? Or are they grandfathered in?

Spank said...

I'm still waiting to get paid for starring in "Pacific Rimming". It's not like anyone can do what I do.

Steve Sax said...

@BJ: that doesn't count!!!
