@BIah That was a better answer than I expected.  I won't go further.  But thanks for the response.

@Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) @Hurtin No spitting or tattoos or sliding headfirst unless it is back to the bag.  And absolutely no cussing.  The PFDs are fine.  Agreed?

@Disgruntled Goat @Hurtin I'm being purposely ironic for comedic effect.  Kind of like not hitting someone on purpose on purpose.

Okay I finally got the lyrics for the song called "Turn down for What?"


They are as follows:


Turn down for What?

Turn down for What?

Turn down for What?

Turn down for What?

Then towards the middle it evolves to:


Turn down for What?

Turn down for What?

Turn down for What?

Turn down for What?

The grand finale does not leave us disappointed.  


Turn down for What?

Turn down for What?

Turn down for What?

Turn down for What?

____

Turner down for What?  He's the man with a message for us all with his music.  I still like "Tear down the Wolf" better.

@deblueSilverEdition We have a logical thinker here.  Thanks for that.  No, that is not a shot at everyone else.  At least I don't want it to be perceived that way.

@ABSmileBunch @Hurtin That is really the name of the song?  What message are they trying to convey?  I notice they mention the phrase repeatedly with some authority.  I figure they are trying to make some important point and knowing the last word is "what?" rather than "wolf" helps some but not as much as I had hoped.

No one told me who Justin Turner's song is?  "Tear down the Wolf"?  I really don't know.  What does the singer keep saying when he goes up to bat?

@Lobo @Hurtin @DBrim An error that leads to an unearned run or a three-run homer.  We can pretend about alot of things.  But we lost the championship when we lost Hanley.  How do you like our odds if the Cardinals best hitter is taken out?

@DBrim If he is healthy we win the first three games.  Also isn't it possible to plunk someone on purpose without the obvious signs, such as count etc.  If you deck someone 0-2 and act disgusted.  Oops.  Who can know intent?

@deblueSilverEdition @Hurtin Let's hope. Or if they don't let's hope thinks stay even in that department including injury wise to key players.  We went without our hottest hitter and they cruised along like nothing happened.

@deblueSilverEdition If they do we take out their best guy.  We lost the championship when Hanley was plunked and the Cardinals are quite good at plunking.

@Mike Petriello @Hurtin I mean on our team.  Was Hanley second at getting plunked after Puig?

I mean pitching inside effectively with a few well-calculated plunks worked in.  (Don't say "even more gross".)

I would be disappointed if I was banned and I do like the Dodgers.   And I'm serious about the witchcraft.  And the Dolphin ordeal.  Look at the "Sea of Hands" game and you will see the bizarre way they lost.

I also watched the Simpson's every night for decades.  Briefly Bart was my favorite then it was Homer, Bart was a DISTANT second.  I love Homer though I have not watched TV since 2008.

I didn't mean to post immodestly dressed women.  I thought I just posted the link.  I get to see the Dodgers play the Nats this month and it looks like they will be pretty healthy when I see them.

This is serious.  I'm not trying to be stupid.  But do you think Riana put a spell on Matt Kemp (and the Dodgers).  I heard she is into witchcraft.  I am being serious.  

I don't know if anyone remembers this.  I am a Dolphin fan.  I remember after the Dolphins had won two consecutive Super Bowls, Shula was sitting Mercury Morris for the playoff game against the Raiders after 1974 season.  And Mercury started doing some voo doo stuff on the field.  The Dolphins never won another Super Bowl and lost that game in truly bizarre fashion.

BTW - Will I get a warning before being banned?  Our will I just not be able to post?

I met Lasorda in Don Shula's Restaurant in 1993 BTW.  He was down to earth and friendly.  But I also heard he told an elderly lady who was struggling to get to her seat to "Sit the f down!!"  I guess none of us are perfect.

Does anyone have any idea why Kemp repeatedly spits.  Does he produce an excess of saliva, a habit to make him look like he is relaxed and not thinking "how can I not strike out" or does he simply have difficulty swallowing?  I would be worried about walking on it.  There really is alot of spit involved in Baseball.

In a related note, do you think both the 1977 and 1978 team would have beaten the 1981 and 1988 team?  Which team was better between the 1977 and 1978 team.

Also, didn't Reggie purposely interfere with that double play ball by sticking his hip out.  The Dodgers would have won the game and the series if he didn't do that.
