14 hours, 24 minutes ago on National League Wild Card: Giants @ Pirates
Wow--I knew it was bad from all the screaming about it, but I had no idea Yost was *this* bad:
Maybe DM *isn't* the biggest idiot on the planet in that area.

@P_F_P "7. A former pro wrestler will be hired to stand next to the on-deck circle. Any time a batter starts pulling a Mike Hargrove wannabe act, the FPW will walk over and smack the batter around for five seconds, then deposit him bodily into the batter's box." :-)

I suspect CK will be a tad more cautious pitching to Bourjos this time around. Fool me once. . .
18 hours, 37 minutes ago on Better Know An NLDS Opponent: Cardinals Offense
@BluESQ For the Giants to lose, that is.
19 hours, 53 minutes ago on Carl Crawford could be ‘X-Factor’ for Dodgers in NLDS
@BluESQ Root for the Giants because losing to Volquez is inherently humiliating, even with the Pirates behind him.
@Lobo @PagansOedipalComplex I want a piece of that rib-breaking scumbag Kelly, but that coward ran off and hid in Boston.
20 hours, 46 minutes ago on Carl Crawford could be ‘X-Factor’ for Dodgers in NLDS
If Volquez manages to beat the Giants tonight, you may never hear from me again--it may constitute a fatal schadenfreude moment for me. It would be a good death. :-)
20 hours, 52 minutes ago on Carl Crawford could be ‘X-Factor’ for Dodgers in NLDS
@Tymathee @MScottEiland True--though the most egregious one all year was against the Nationals just recently. In extra innings. It would be utterly humiliating if he blew a game that way in front of a playoff audience.
21 hours, 4 minutes ago on Carl Crawford could be ‘X-Factor’ for Dodgers in NLDS
@Mike Petriello No more Big Donkey? The MLB world is a sadder and smaller place today--but it will be warmer due to the lack of Dunn striking out constantly and providing a cooling breeze. :-(
21 hours, 8 minutes ago on Carl Crawford could be ‘X-Factor’ for Dodgers in NLDS
So--is anyone else terrified that the Royals bunted in stupid situations last night and ended up winning anyway? They might as well have put up a glowing sign in front of Mattingly saying "Your way of life has been vindicated--MOAR BUNTS!!!"
21 hours, 24 minutes ago on Carl Crawford could be ‘X-Factor’ for Dodgers in NLDS
@Disgruntled Goat I'm ambivalent--I want the Giants to suffer, of course, but the Pirates are dangerous and the Dodgers have proven they can spank the Giants as they're currently constituted.
1 day, 21 hours ago on Adam Wainwright’s Strength Is The Dodgers’ Strength
@Tymathee Next year he'll start throwing 11 K Madduxs every third start. Cueto and Wainwright will start breaking into sobs every time his name is mentioned.
@P_F_P Played starting at a quarter to four. Unless Jeter joins the Dodgers, I'd set the overs and unders line for total runs at 2--and betting unders on that line wouldn't be a sucker bet.
@Purple Drank Booze or weed?
@exceedingly boring potato He's going to win five Gold Gloves at shortstop for no good reason? :-P
@Jeremy_N @MScottEiland (I love Tommy but he was rough on elite pitching arms).
@Jeremy_N @MScottEiland Careful, wearing that one around the team could make elbows and rotator cuffs explode. :-(
Maybe the Dodgers should all go up to the plate wearing "2." Experience suggests that they'll get batting practice fastballs from Wainwright if they do. :-P
1 day, 22 hours ago on Adam Wainwright’s Strength Is The Dodgers’ Strength
@exceedingly boring potato Yes, it can be annoying.
2 days, 17 hours ago on Mailbag #12: Hanley, Player Options, Ethier Trade, Brim, Vin
Videos we need to see: Yasiel Puig practicing dropping perfect bunts halfway down the first base line. Just in time for the Cardinals to come to town.
When the Dodgers actually hire someone who is remotely as good as Vin "heading boldly into his sixty-sixth year in the booth" Scully, then we can start talking about the post-Vin Scully era. I fully expect to be driving my flying car and watching Kate Upton's grandchildren on reality TV when that era begins. :-P
@Turner_for_Treasury Well, yeah--how could CK possibly be in the CY conversation when he couldn't even lead the NL in Ks spotting Cueto and Strasburg seven starts?*
*--exposure to excessive sarcasm can have severe side effects: visit your local standup comic if you feel any symptoms.
3 days, 12 hours ago on Dodgers 10, Rockies 5: Juan Uribe, Manager Of The Year
@ThtsaPaddlin I'm looking forward to Rickey Henderson's. :-)
6 days, 14 hours ago on The Eight Billionth Way Clayton Kershaw Is Awesome
@DodgerLivingInWeHo Wainwright must be pitching. :-P
Well, someone is going to have to take the strikeout leg of the pitching triple crown from CK. Won't be too challenging in a decent start, but Cueto or Strasburg *will* have to get it done.
1 week ago on Giants @ Dodgers Sept. 24, 2014: Kershaw Goes For the Clincher
Suck it, Baggarly. ]:-)
@ak825 @P_F_P Tommy being Tommy is the one thing that makes having lost Pedro Martinez for Delino F***ing DeShields somewhat tolerable--because if he had stayed on the Dodgers Tommy probably would have blown Pedro's arm out the way he did Ramon's. Not to mention Fernando's.
1 week ago on Report: De Jon Watson To Leave For Diamondbacks
@The Tripp Cromer Experience @MScottEiland He has a temper, and is *very* protective of his teammates. That combination together with what happened in yesterday's game makes me nervous.
1 week ago on How Do We Explain Justin Turner?
OK, no one's going to goad CK into doing something stupid today that will get him thrown out early and screw up finishing off the Giants and capping off his MVP argument, right?
@Lobo Bochy's just mad that the only reason the idiots scored any runs at all is that Bumgarner couldn't lay down a bunt. Moron.
1 week, 1 day ago on Dodgers 4, Giants 2: Justin Turner takes a selfie for the Giants
Having Darwin Barney hit for Greinke is the very definition of a mortal insult. Even granting that there was no way he was going out for the ninth.
1 week, 1 day ago on Giants @ Dodgers Sept. 23, 2014: Runs will be rare in matchup of aces
@ABSmileBunch @P_F_P Well, Bumgarner "shouldn't have been f***ing bunting" anyway.
Er, Bochy--I'm getting senile.
@Uncultured Grand Dad @MScottEiland Exactly. The mark of the deeply stupid.
Seriously--who has a near league average hitter bunt three runs down with one out?
Brenly, you doofus--your pitcher had to pull a Uribe to save you from your Mattingly-level idiocy.

1 week, 1 day ago on A First Try At A Potential 2014 Dodger Playoff Roster
@ThtsaPaddlin @Mike Petriello *vomits explosively at the mere suggestion*
@Diane Nguyen Though in fairness, Haren was most excellent tonight and if he's our #4 going into the postseason I'm feeling mighty confident right now.
1 week, 2 days ago on Giants 5, Dodgers 2: At least Dan Haren was good
@Diane Nguyen *bows to Diane's awesome take* :-)
@capnsparrow @TellMyWifeISaidHello @LASports96 Primed to set up CK for the coup de grace on Wednesday.
@Turner_for_Treasury The Dodgers still have a theoretical shot at best record in the league--which would mean playing a wild card team that had to burn their ace rather than the now white hot Cardinals--meaning that losing games because f***ing Correia f***ing sucks sour yak milk is worth complaining loudly about.
@Purple Drank @P_F_P If it's more than a sack of fresh fertilizer, the Dodgers got royally screwed.
@P_F_P *looks* Yikes--if I'm ever *that* bad, hunt me down and shoot me. Or at least smack me around something fierce.
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Matt Kemp's Bath Towel @MScottEiland True--Bob Brenly should have been fired mid-World Series in 2001 IMO for his epic incompetence in using Byung-hyun Kim, but his team saved his job with their heroics. He was still an incompetent idiot.
Haren looking strong again is far more important than the result of this one game, as infuriating as KC's epic, continued suckitude is.
@corylol And CK is starting.
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @MScottEiland Granted, but we've pretty well seen what putting KC into games results in by now.
Stop me if you've heard this before, but if Kevin Correia makes it onto the Dodger postseason roster, people need to be fired. People named Ned and Don.
