11 months, 1 week ago on 2013 Dodgers in Review #20: CF Matt Kemp
Obvious 'grain of salt' disclaimer, but my CFO was tailgating USC-Stanford, starts talking to a guy with an SF world series ring. Nondescript front office guy, but they chat it up over beers and the guy tells him to look out for a Puig for Price deal . . . maybe he was blowing smoke and grandstanding. . . maybe he legitimately has his ear to the ground, who knows.
It's the third. Everyone calm down.

I've decided to embrace the money BS we have to hear constantly. Currently fighting with Giants fans buddies that don't know who to root for, and are pretending this isn't an awesome final 4 for baseball (because they wanted the A's, which I'll admit would have been cool). ". . . Then we'll buy up all the Cuban babies of the world and import them straight to Arizona where we'll raise them on steady diets of milk carton gloves, gravel infields and organic foods."

I don't know their names, but looking at the one on the far left . . . is Andre Ethier secretly the long lost oldest Jonas?http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/09/showbiz/jonas-brothers-canceled-tour/index.html?hpt=hp_t3

I might be late, with this, stepped away and came back: but if you want to cry a little...
So none of the TBS guys got the Gibbson moment in that last at bat?

Yeah... but now he's gotta go sit down. And he's not used to that, and some power arms don't like cooling off...
Gotta capitalize here. (Yeah, they do call me Cpt Obvious, you're right)
TBS, Atlanta company.
Does it sync up? I've tried in the past and the delay on tv is always behind...
1 year ago on 2013 NLDS Game 1: Dodgers @ Braves
I've been warned that the TBS announcers (Atl based station) will be insufferable hommers.
I love every aspect of seeing my Giants friends have their hearts ripped out watching the Beard in Blue -- I love this so much, because even if he fails, we'll still go to the playoffs - it's not like they can even laugh if he's awful - it's inconsequential - and they know it. I have three of them crying to me right now. It hurts them. AND I'm going to the game tonight - this is a good day.

Is Stark as retarded as I think he is?http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/page/rumblings130729/white-sox-jake-peavy-trade-likely
• THE DODGERS. We've seen a lot of speculation that the Dodgers could be open to trading Andre Ethier or Carl Crawford in a big deal. But some people wonder instead: Shouldn't they be more open to trading Matt Kemp? Since the Dodgers caught fire last month, Kemp has made it through an entire game only eight times. So they've essentially been winning without him. Ethier has actually played well in center in Kemp's absence. And the Dodgers have one of the bright lights of the Futures Game, center-field prospect Joc Pederson, just over the horizon. We keep waiting for a huge name to pop onto this market in the final two days before the deadline. So just asking a question others have pondered: Why not Matt Kemp?

Last nights events as seen through the eyes of the dark side. Even they love Vin.
@Mike Petriello Any chance we get favorable treatment from Dear Ole Dad?
@LA_Woman @socalkid21 No, as always, I agree with Mike's well thought out logic and rationale. But the 'old school' 'gritty' baseball fan in me thought it was amazing in a - I'll have a heavy dose of cognitive dissonance right now and ignore that this whole team is hurt and Matt Kemp may jump off a railing and leg drop someone with his bad hammy at any moment.
Is this where we're supposed to talk about Mike's aversion to fighting?

Reading the comments over there is making my brain hurt. Everyone's first argument is historical team success either against (Trout), or for (Posey) the individual. Ok . . .

Raise your hand if last night's euphoria has lead you to have a level of excitment that will inevitably end up being a complete and utter slap in the face of 'oh yeah, we play like garbage right now.'
League 1-2-3 grounders.
1 year, 4 months ago on Angels @ Dodgers May 27, 2013: Well, That’s a Lineup
Like that DP ball. Get League outta there.
Mike don't you know 0-2 lunged at seeing eye singles are the clear indicators that a closer is cooked?
Besides being wrong?
All the more reason everyone needs to chill out. If you're calling them out early, every game, and still in May, you're not a sports fan and you need a new hobby. Mike - like John Stewart - the only level head I can rely on.
This is why reading 'this game is lost' from people in the fourth inning always pisses me off.
Don't look now, we actually have a balls game. See if Matt wants to join. And a good late inning bench.
If I root for SVS, am I rooting for trolls everywhere?

Did everyone else already know about these? And Jose Bautista? Really?
Guerrier happy he didn't have to actual pitch the outs.
Ethier was going to get some nachos and was kind enough to ask the ump if he wanted any.

I'll take barley for 400 Trabeck.
Always nice when Lyons turns on the jock intimidation so that Collins offers zero value in bringing the one interesting thing he has to say anything about: new school statistics.
Russel Martin can.
Musta just been the 3-2 with fatty up.
Donny, putting a play on finally. Only took his job on the block and a 3-2 count.
Best part of new tv deal?
A) 8 billion greenbacks
B) Prospect of no more Lyons/Collins
