Hot blooded but laid back Korean
I don't think you've pointed out how much of a finger-pointer Ian Kennedy is. After the big brawl game at Dodger Stadium, all he could talk about after the game was how it was wrong that Greinke hit Montero. Never mind the two helmets he himself hit with his pitches (one, the opposing pitcher's). Then in the recent Dodger game in Phoenix, on the heels of his main role in all this, he hits our hottest hitter (probably by accident but because of the circumstances, lay low). All he could say after the game was how Puig "plays with arrogance." Accountable much, Ian? *sigh*

I can't believe I said "there" instead of "their". I did spell "D-bags" correctly, however.
The Arizona D-bags are the biggest cry-babies in baseball. I love there little self-serving rules of conduct.
I was more surprised how League dominated last season, after being demoted in Seattle from his closer position. But like you said, this season has been a wild swing the other way. How do you throw 95, have a herky jerky delivery slot, and still get hit so hard all the time? I guess it was like Broxton throwing 100 gas but still getting ripped. I feel bad for Brandon. It's not like he wants to perform like this, but every hit, every run allowed, brings a chorus a boos -- something no other pitcher gets right now. I can see how it must suck for him right now to take the mound at Dodger Stadium. Anyway, awesome 4 game winning streak over the NL West. Let's sweep the Hated Ones!

Whoops Pier 38. I guess I was thinking SF.

Tamura's, Tamashiro's, Ono Seafood, Nico's Pier 39 (poke at the deli, not from the restaurant), and Pa`ina Cafe are also contenders. Also, I will never reject a pound of simple shoyu ahi poke from Foodland ever. Yum.
@Catfishin yup. Stop buying players. Just let the team gel, finally.

Not that I want Romo in a save situation, but I would like to have Hanley go yard on him once again. Let's sweep this one boys. Keep rolling against he NL West.
@JoeyE it's a bully thing, which is a Ned thing.

Japan 2 (Kuroda & Ichiro), Korea 1. Ballgame.
Time to start another brawl. Where's Greinke? This team is going nowhere fast. It's time for Ned to go. It's been time for Ned to go.
Scheduling is horrible. I dunno, for some reason I am seeing this short Yankees series as a chance to do something different (i.e. winning a series), and create some momentum. There are not many more series left until the Dodgers are cast into irrelevancy in the division race even by the all-star break. Looks like the wild card is out as an option as there are too many good teams in the NL Central.

Also, if for pure volume people want to gorge on bulgogi or kalbi, with sangchu (red leaf lettuce) and samjang (marinated bean paste), there's probably no better deal than Camelia Buffet on McCully for lunch (with coupon like $12.99). If I was a starving student, I would make that my one meal a day. But I'm not, so I don't go there (too often).
5 months, 2 weeks ago on Part II: Where real Koreans eat Korean food
@MyongChoi OK thanks. I have to find the right code word for the 808 kine Korean food haha.
I may have to go to Hyung Jae for some gamja tang (potato stew) -- I am drooling right now. I have yet to find a Korean restaurant that serves good bin dae dukk (korean bean pancake). Not the onion or seafood jun (flour based). The bean based pancake. They call it no dong dukk or something here? Regardless, it's not done right for some reason. When bin dae dukk comes out fresh, melt in your mouth - there's nothing like it! I'll take some suggestions.
@DianeSeo @MyongChoi @Annoddah_Dave what new place? I'm surprised MC had Peppas on his list LOL. I think So Gong Dong should probably have had a mention on one of these lists. Great post Diane!
@Purple Drank @Dodgers' 7th Ringthere's no way you leave a guy in making his first appearance, after he gives up two hits, in such an important game. It is a no brainer to bring Paco in: he is a lefty, he's got experience, this is a pressure situation, this could really damage Withrow's confidence, etc. But Donny allows the damage to be done and THEN he brings in Paco too late. In a game where we have an insipid offensive lineup and we have a lead, you have to manage with urgency and shorten the game. This is not the time to allow your first appearance rookie pitcher to find himself . *ugh*

@RussellAllen Donny doesn't seem to think things through. Like the other day when the Dodgers beat the Braves on the wild pitch: you had Ramon Hernandez on second with Cruz at the plate. Run for him. But he didn't, Cruz got a base hit, and Ramon being slow only went to third. So THEN he runs for him by putting in Schumaker. Wut? If you were going to do this anyway, do this when Ramon is already in scoring position at 2nd base. Lucky Uribe was able to get a wild pitch and Schu scored but it was really bad decision making, IMO.

That must be Dave Wakeling's favorite shirt. He wore the exact same shirt like 2 years ago when English Beat performed at Pipeline. Special Beat Service baby!
