@Mike Petriello @BlueMarvin Well, I guess what I'm asking is, if I know of writing jobs that don't involve sports, are you interested?

@Mike Petriello Just curious, are you only interested in a sportswriter job, or are you interested in writing jobs in general?

@Anime Ethier @LA_Woman @BlueMarvin Right, there is no one word for just the foot. :) Was a trick question.

@Anime Ethier Quick, what's the Japanese word for "foot," you never said before when I asked!

@Purple Drank @Disgruntled Goat @BlueMarvin You know you'd love it if it happened, don't lie. But after the bad news avalanche that was the NLDS, I understand if you're afraid to ever love again.
@Disgruntled Goat @BlueMarvin I'm still gonna hope. It helps to slightly dull the pain.
On the positive side of Giants news, some writer was saying Peavy has earned a three year deal now with his strong second half, and that the Giants are likely to give it to him. Oh please, oh please, oh please.
@Disgruntled Goat Did you get a haircut?
@Lobo @BlueMarvin @Dustin Nosler I agree that greed likely would mean this never happens, but I think it's the right thing to do regardless.

@Dustin Nosler Remove the WC totally and winning the division suddenly becomes really important again.
So as I watch the two possibly least-talented teams from all those that made the playoffs emerge as the World Series matchup, I'm starting to wonder if the WIldcard needs to go. I get why baseball wants to keep fans involved, but a Giants/Royals series kind of spits on the integrity of the regular season.
This post does a great job of making the idea of adding Byrnes really unappealing. Not stoked by this guy. Can't we do better?

@EephusBlue Makes sense. Think they'll promote Ned from his advisory role to GM?

@ThtsaPaddlin A phone? This isn't 1970! They can beam the decisions straight to an iPhone watch instead!
*Don looks down, sees: "No, Don, no." Withdraws bunt sign.*
@capnsparrow Sad faces at 2-Year Contract Park. That would make the Series worth watching.
@Disgruntled Goat :(
@foldamort @BlueMarvin @Sad Towel Yeah, I agree with this. It was just one of those weird situations. I know the whole Puig getting benched thing is universally hated here, but I think I get why Don did it, Puig was not only getting out consistently the prior two games but almost always without even driving a ball or moving over runners. It looked like the Cards had successfully disrupted him with mind games.

@foldamort @BlueMarvin Ah, understood. But you aren't the only one, Brim also mentioned it briefly in his post: "if the Dodgers do get rid of him at this afternoon’s press conference I won’t be shedding any tears"
@Disgruntled Goat Not hanging out by the pool is definitely an option.
@foldamort I didn't get the impression that Don was on the way out... are there any signs of this, or is this speculation purely based on the fact that new guys often want to pick their own managers?
@Sad Towel He got on base twice that game. *
* please ignore the part where he got thrown out at 3B
@DBrim I once offered an opinion which essentially said that I'm OK with sexy characters in video games (and think many women are OK with this too) in response to someone here posting a video ripping that issue, not knowing anything about this GamerGate business, or the death threats, or the controversy, or any of that stuff. That led to me being attacked like I was some backwards sexist guy who hates women, and all kinds of other things that aren't true, which was extremely offensive, but whatever. The response was so vicious and so aggressive, you typically only see that thing when it comes to political or religious topics. So, obviously, for me at least, it makes no sense to discuss this topic here. Look what happened last time. So for that reason, this to me is... politics.
@DBrim Fair enough.
@ryus_hadouken @BlueMarvin Politics. :(
@DodgerDawg @BlueMarvin Yeah, he said "could be" ... was was curious what he thought.
@DBrim Politics. :(
Interesting stuff, thanks Brim. Could the change be more a matter of the bench coach than Don?
@DBrim As a Dodgers fan you should know... there's always next year.

@tsneddy (I hate the red turds) They didn't play THAT well against us... it's just a lot of really unlikely things happened at the exact right moment for them, either cause of luck or cause our pen is THAT bad or cause baseball. I still think we were the better team.
@PasadenaDodger It's just a dream, it isn't real.
@capnsparrow May your dream come true, Cap.
I'm glad we have a smart guy in charge, really, but payroll still matters so I hope we don't do something stupid here. Of the top 15 payroll teams, 7 made the playoffs. Of the bottom 15, only 3 did. Talented, proven guys are often expensive, that's just how it usually goes.

@moneynow27 @BlueMarvin I'm not asking for an explanation. I'm just advising that what you're asking is extremely unlikely to be happen.

@Vin_Skully @BlueMarvin @moneynow27 Hitl... um, who?
@Batted Bob Hey, you're copying me now! ;)
@moneynow27 Generally it doesn't work to ask an entire community to only talk in the way you want them to... unless you have Mod privileges. Just sayin.
@moneynow27 @capnsparrow @BlueMarvin Tried to grab some yesterday, but, alas, I use Sharebuilder and didn't have liquid funds available and it takes THREE GODDAMN DAYS to get the money into the account. Naturally that stock gained like $5 per share since then. lol
@moneynow27 @capnsparrow @BlueMarvin NLNK huh? Watching it, out of curiosity.
@Disgruntled Goat @mawp @BlueMarvin Cause 1) familiar, and 2) maybe friends?
I initially bought all the "Mattingly is golden with ownership" talk, but all this Maddon talk is making me wonder about that whole smoke/fire thing. Either way, reporters are going to hound Don all year if he stays, aren't they?
@Disgruntled Goat @Subtle Euphemism aka Jonathan Lingo @mostly exciting potato He should hold out for a Löwenbräu.
@ABSmileBunch I don't see it. As Dustin mentioned, too much offense going out... unless it brings back a Stanton. And how would Kemp do that, since he has a big contract himself. Trading him for prospects makes no sense for winning in 2015, which I'm guessing they still want to do.
Why do I feel like this post was made so that it could be referenced later during a whinefest? ;)
