@Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) @JonathanLingo Yep, and love it. Underdogs throwing it 60 times a game, other underdogs running it 60 times a game, all with horrifically funky uniforms. It is the best/

@efb @JonathanLingo Could be. I love sleep, and most drugs just send me to slumberland...so, QED.
Boys and Girls...I love you all. I love baseball. I love the Dodgers. I love summertime and remembering eating Carnation chocolate malts at the stadium and flinging the lids towards the field from my mt everest-level seats. I love everything about 1988...
But, it is the best weekend of the year, and I am going to gorge on so much college football that I am going to have to forsake DD, ya'll, and baseball until Tuesday. I hope you understand.
Disclaimer: I love a lot of things but I don't love drugs--hallucinogenic or otherwise.
@Tymathee College fball is awesome, so why are the power brokers trying so hard to ruin it?

@- Casey - My son can't get enough of it. It makes no sense to me.

@Lobo I'd like to add a few alphabet soup abbreviations and see is anyone besides Brim calls me on it.

Wait...our journeyman pitcher bunted into a double play and it wasn't a pop out? Ouch
1 week ago on Mets @ Dodgers Aug. 21, 2014: Jon Niese Arrives In Los Angeles
@BIah I was married 9 months after meeting my wife...21 years later we're still going strong.
So, sure, some people make a mistake marrying the wrong person, but that can happen whether you know them for months or years. For me, I knew very quickly that I had found the person I wanted to to spend the rest of my life with.
@potato (2014 MSTY: Newcomer of the Year) @Disgruntled Goat @JonathanLingo @Matt Kemp's Bath Towel taco bell is like teenager bait more than actual food.
1 week, 1 day ago on Dee Gordon did indeed make changes in 2014, including recent adjustments
@potato (2014 MSTY: Newcomer of the Year) @Matt Kemp's Bath Towel so wrong...and so trolling.
@Hoze @JonathanLingo @- Casey - @TellMyWifeISaidHello @DBrim well said.
1 week, 1 day ago on Dodgers 2, Padres 1: Clayton Kershaw great, Justin Turner also good
@- Casey - @TellMyWifeISaidHello @DBrim True, but scouts didn't think Puig was going to be Puig, either. Given their track record, I give the Dodger scouting staff about 25 benefits of the doubt on this, though.
@Lobo That is an awesome trivia question, and SSS can go shove it.
@Bipartisan Corduroy "It's not that you're ugly, it's just that you're fat."
@Hoze He probably stole it at the all star game. Thief!

@DBrim "Beware, all ye left handed batters who enter here."
@Purple Drank @JonathanLingo @efb Yea, I've heard that about him.
That was the left-handed batter line, right?
@efb @Hoze I don't go to those sorts of websites.
@Purple Drank @efb Are we talking about "It's a Small World" again?
@Hoze @JonathanLingo oh sure, that. ;)
1 week, 4 days ago on Zack Greinke’s elbow a ‘creeping concern’ for Dodgers as his command deteriorates
In the last thread, the question was posed as to how you treat a tired arm without extra rest. I propose blow and steroids.
@BlueMarvin blow and steroids?

@Purple Drank Getaway day for the fans

@Mike Petriello @JonathanLingo Heh, it isn't my fault that it is Sunday morning and everyone is still waking up.
1 week, 6 days ago on A Reminder About Playoff Eligibility
I didn't get to watch the game last night, so I'm hoping someone can clarify something for me. Did Ryan Braun inject HGH as part of his on deck ritual, or did he, in the interest of propriety, go back into the dugout between innings to do it?
Is adjusting to playing with a chewed off ear like getting used to Landing a plane with wind sheer?

I approve. That mustache was a crime against humans
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Down On The Farm: 8/4 – 8/10 – Joc, Seager + Reed, De Leon, Cash earn promotions
@capnsparrow (Actual top vote getter for POY) and on that note, Posey is really a pretty awful last name.
2 weeks, 2 days ago on Scott Schebler’s impressive play might add to the outfield logjam
I tell ya, Grant is the best schadenfreude commentator in history. He explains the latest embarrassment in the latest Gnat collapse like no one else.
@ak825 @Hoze lol
@JackedNate I regret that I only have 1 like to give this post
@capnsparrow (Actual top vote getter for POY) @JonathanLingo @Expressed anal gland I don't believe I either expressed nor implied that assertion, no. In fact, I believe I explicitly denied that assertion.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Brian Wilson Is Pitching Better Than You Think He Is
@Expressed anal gland @JonathanLingo Negatory. You guys are assuming that talent/production are all that matters. However, you have all worked and so you should know better. How many talented jackasses get fired every year? A lot.
His talent won't be so overwhelming much longer to overcome all things. I don't know what his clubhouse rep is, so that counts for a lot more than his beard. But, if his clubhouse rep is in line with his beard, than it is going to hurt him.
@Uncultured Bastard smart salesman, trying to get into a pissing match with a customer over team loyalties. He's like a super genius.
My completely serious tangential comment about this article: Brian Wilson, now that he is old enough that he is starting to lose MPH on his fastball and is starting to fit the description of "journeyman", has reached the point in his career where his beard/hair/reputation is going to start costing him money. Putting up with a "weirdo" is charming when they are the best closer in the game, but once they become a journeyman you start to ask, "Is this really worth the hassle?"
So, the question is: Does Brian "believe" in his image so much that he is willing to take money out of his pocket for it? I'm curious to see what he does
@Dave! (but probably Justin Turner, maybe) @- Casey - I don't call him Chad GIFiyama for nothing.
I enjoy how Grant has made schadenfreude into a pasttime and not just a fleeting moment.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Dodgers 3, Braves 2: Dan Haren Good? Again?
*Sigh* Dropping knowledge and get NEW'ed.
As an aside about the schedule, when I used to work at the Stadium in high school we all dreaded these long, long stretches...and I wasn't even playing.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Dodgers @ Braves August 12, 2014: Oh Good, More Dan Haren
@ak825 @Mike Petriello as far as discussion, I am opposed to this
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Jon Niese curiously clears waivers, should the Dodgers have interest?
@futbolram @JonathanLingo Good call. Hard sport to appeal to lots of participants, however.
@Mike Petriello @JonathanLingo The major sports in the 30's were horse racing, boxing, and baseball. They had barnstorming football teams but they were very, very minor. Baseball was king.
Baseball Trivia. Around WW2 baseball was basically the only professional sport in the US. How popular was it? Popular enough that in addition to the minor leagues that we know today, they had B, C, and even D leagues.
@Hoze There used to be a women's barnstorming baseball team going around ten years ago or so. They were sponsored by a beer company (Bud Light?). That is the end of my story.
Story rating please?
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Jon Niese curiously clears waivers, should the Dodgers have interest?
@TheConman @- Casey - @no opinion bot Go in standing up like a linebacker. That would be pretty awesome and anarchy-ish.
@no opinion bot It shouldn't, but unfortunately it does enter into the equation. The other side of the question is, though, What if you don't tell them and then they find out later in an awful way (say, your child has an awful overbite and a weak chin). Won't they feel betrayed/hurt that you didn't tell them?
@no opinion bot so, as slow as a catcher? They look like they are running with a parachute attached.
@Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) @futbolram @JonathanLingo "Honey, I had a rhinoplasty, cheek and chin implants, and hairplugs, but I'm still the same person inside".
@no opinion bot Tangentially related, I recently read a study that found that the same radiologist reading the same image a few months later had a different diagnosis than their previous read 30% of the time.
