Dumb Ass Dodger Fans

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on June 21, 2015

Yesterday, I want to say around the end of the 2nd inning, the camera panned to the outside of The Art Dealer Exhibit and showed the long line of cars waiting to get into the parking lot. We’ve heard about this for years, but what exactly is up with that? It was Saturday, isn’t traffic lighter on Saturday? And even if it’s awful every day in that god forsaken place, what’s wrong with those dopes that they can’t, you know, PLAN OUT THE TRIP so even with traffic they arrive on time?

Hey, it’s their money, if they want to spend it listening to half the game in their car that’s their right.

Timmy going tonight in one of the biggest games to start the Summer I can remember. Winner is in sole possession of first place in the NL West……

Happy Fathers Day!

    Dodgers have to go on road to play Cubs Monday night, another reason they likely aren’t too happy about late start.
    Giants meanwhile come home for 6 vs. Pads and Sherps, the 2 teams at bottom of division.
    So even if tonite doesn’t work out, SF has pretty good chance to retake first soon.
    Given how well they’ve played LA, past time to show others who is class of the division.

    Btw, in total surprise to me, as of today Giants team leader in OPS is: Joe Panik.

  2. willedav said, on June 21, 2015 at 9:12 am

    Panik is second on team to Aoki in OB at .375.
    He has 26 XBH, second only to Belt with 28 and even with Crawford. Posey has 20, team high 10 HRs.
    Panik and Belt lead team in doubles with 18.

    Did not see any of this (.840 OPS) coming. Kid’s rolling.

    It would be nice to catch first hand some of the 43k AT&T fan base electricity (maybe someday).
    In the meantime, I’ll just enjoy and get fired up watching Giant fans (home and away) show what the true 26th player means to the other players.
    Dodger fans can continue to watch Puig show immaturity (yesterday doesn’t run down 3rd base on a ground out) , Kershaw ranting on poor self and team performance and overall general lack of leadership… IMO that’s a combo of a defeating attitude.

    Screw the Bums.. Let’s sweep

  4. snarkk said, on June 21, 2015 at 9:49 am

    Would like to see Timmeh do well today, close the sweep. Chances of that aren’t great, IMO. Amazing how Gyros can hit on the road, not at home. Looks like Posey’s bat is waking up, that’s welcome. Aoki out with an ankle “bruise”. Hope that doesn’t last long. Running out of OFers again…

    National media busy, as expected, of denigrating Dubs championship. They faced a decimated Cavs, they missed the Spurs and Clips, they never had anybody hurt (uh, Bogut was out at least a month with his knees, and Lee was out the first month, which allowed Draymond to Wally Pipp him). The ESPN radio NBA show this morning spent the majority of the time analyzing what the series loss meant to Lebron and his legacy. Just weird how the national media figures if its west coast, it’s not worthy, even if the team had the best record for the season, and the Cavs played in the dogmeat East. Unless Lakers or Dodgers, I suppose. Bettman giving the Stanley Cup to the Blackhawks (3 of last 6) claimed they had a “dynasty”. He’s a tool, but apparently it’s a dynasty if it’s East of the Mississippi?…

    • willedav said, on June 21, 2015 at 10:28 am

      Draymond’s got LeBron’s legacy right here.
      Guy is a player coach these days who obviously listens to no one but voices in his head telling everyone he is the best player in the world.
      Um, who had the ball in his hands for the last shot in regulation of Game 1 and took a stupid fadeaway contested 3? This after Irving made spectacular block of Curry layup, and of course before Cavs imploded once OT began and missed every shot til it was over.
      Yes he scored a ton of points, but pct was awful and he was often done in by Iguodala 4th Q.

      LeBron would have been better served to play a year or 2 of college ball and go through regimen of conditioning and getting yelled at by assistants and head guy who controls playing time. He might have learned quite a lot about the game and being part of a team. Now he’s ball hog player, coach and GM.

    Nothing could make me happier(besides family today) then the Giants kicking the Dogpile’s rear end tonight and getting “The SWEEP” on. Father’s Day,and taking over where we rightfully belong in 1st place!!!
    Happy Father’s Day Flappers!!

  7. dirtnrocksnomo said, on June 21, 2015 at 10:55 am

    When I lived in SoCal we rarely went anywhere on the weekend because the traffic was so bad. I was running a restaurant back then though so it’s not like I had the weekends off very often but there was a lot to do in Long Beach so it wasn’t a big deal when the alternative was sweating like a dog as you head up THE 405 or THE 710.

    Vogelsong, Hudson and now Lincecum are all pitching for their rotation spot and the competition seems to be bringing out the best in each of them so far. I hope Lincecum rises to the occasion. Go Giants!

    happy father’s day to all of you knuckleheads that it applies to. gonna watch some Open, and some football and cap it off with some giants, a ny strip and german chocolate cake. living the dream boys, i’m living the dream.

  9. zumiee said, on June 21, 2015 at 12:16 pm

    Sure, I dislike the L.A. teams, but I’m also not a big fan of the city itself. There’s not a whole lot of “there” there, IMO. I like cities that are good “walk around” cities. And that’s not L.A.’s thing.

  10. zumiee said, on June 21, 2015 at 12:25 pm

    Willie mentioned the Dodgers/Cubs 4-game series; that should be an interesting series. And, in a sense, the Giants benefit either way, whoever wins games. The Dodgers and Cubs are both contenders with the Giants for playoff spots. I’m curious to see how “for real” are the Cubs. This is a good test for them. And, really, it’s also a question of how “for real” are the Dodgers. The Dodgers have a pitiful 5-17 record against teams with winning records.
    Yeah, I know the Giants are something like 3-8 against the D-Backs. That rankles.

  11. zumiee said, on June 21, 2015 at 2:40 pm

    Belt to leftfield today, Buster at firstbase.

    The Dodger bullpen is like a game of musical chairs. It’s like they have a non-stop shuttle going between the AAA team and the big club.
    Raven, West, Columbe….who are these guys? I read a thing that said that Brandon League is rehabbing at their AAA team. I thought that guy was completely out of baseball.

    • Bozo said, on June 21, 2015 at 4:56 pm

      Pagan gets to lead off, the Duffman takes over the third slot and Crawford is batting fifth. Should be an interesting evening.

      • Bozo said, on June 21, 2015 at 4:56 pm

        1. Angel Pagan (S) CF
        2. Joe Panik (L) 2B
        3. Matt Duffy (R) 3B
        4. Buster Posey (R) 1B
        5. Brandon Crawford (L) SS
        6. Justin Maxwell (R) RF
        7. Brandon Belt (L) LF
        8. Andrew Susac (R) C
        9. Tim Lincecum (L) P

  12. djloo27 said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:03 pm

    Well, it’s better than Mike Fontenot batting third like he did for a few games in 2011…

    • xoot said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:44 pm

      my kid caught a screaming line drive just foul in the RF bleachers that Fontenot hit vs. the Brewers in 2011. My older son said it sounded like a cannon shot when it hit the tyke’s glove. As with that near HR, overall Fontenot just missed being good enough.

  13. djloo27 said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:07 pm

    Seems like everybody on Earth has (or had) the greatest dad and nothing but golden childhood memories.
    What a crock of PC shit…

    • Macdog said, on June 21, 2015 at 7:54 pm

      Read Jerry West’s book, he would agree with you.

  14. djloo27 said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:11 pm

    One batter in and that stupid ESPN strike zone box is already annoying the fuck out of me…

    • willedav said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:25 pm

      Agreed, but not as much as listening to Schilling for next 3 hours.

  15. zumiee said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:20 pm

    I read a thing that said that Maxwell had the best defensive metric score for a rightfielder in the NL.

  16. vogelsheiner said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:23 pm

    A lot about espn annoys me…but I do like a Sun night game.

  17. zumiee said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:27 pm

    We got “bad Timmy” tonight.

  18. wilcojoe said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:34 pm

    Crawford looks like he hasn’t washed his hair in six months.

  19. djloo27 said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:36 pm

    I predict that within a year there will be gay men featured in Cialis or Viagra commercials.
    A stand-up comedian’s dream…

    • xoot said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:37 pm

      right. it’ll air just after a Visit Beautiful Bangkok ad and the shit will hit the fan.

      • djloo27 said, on June 21, 2015 at 7:09 pm

        lulz!

  20. djloo27 said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:47 pm

    Is Petit throwing in the pen yet?

  21. Lurker John said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:48 pm

    Lincecum looks like he’s lobbing it up there sometimes.

  22. zumiee said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:53 pm

    I have Timmy-fatigue. I love the guy, but I hope he’s not a Giant next season.

    • Lurker John said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:54 pm

      What a disaster. His 7-3 record has to be one of the great smoke-and-mirrors jobs in recent memory.

  23. Lurker John said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:53 pm

    I guess Bochy is conceding this one, save his bullpen. Lincecum was done 3 batter ago.

    • djloo27 said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:56 pm

      He just had nothing tonight from the get go…

  24. djloo27 said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:54 pm

    Whenever a throw home from an outfielder hits the mound, I think of Dante Powell…

  25. xoot said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:55 pm

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a player literally boot a ball before. Belt’s size 16 chicken stomper really kicked that one a long way.

    • Lurker John said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:02 pm

      At least he didn’t step on it after he kicked it. 🙂

  26. Lurker John said, on June 21, 2015 at 5:56 pm

    Petit had best be ready for a long haul, because he’s probably in there for a while.

  27. Lurker John said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:00 pm

    Well, the U.S. Open is shaping up for a nice finish.

    • zumiee said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:03 pm

      The course looks so dry, I thought it was Calif. Central Valley at first.

      • Lurker John said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:09 pm

        It’s been a hot topic all week. I live and work very close to the course and it doesn’t look at splotchy in real life as it does on TV. They use fescue grass which is more typical of European courses. You can read more here:

        http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2015/06/18/415560258/heres-why-is-the-grass-isnt-greener-at-this-years-u-s-open

        It sounds like the USGA wants to continue to move in this direction in order to present the players with more challenge. I think the course is beautiful and very interesting, similar in a lot of ways to St. Andrews. It’s humbled a lot of great players this week. Lots of squawking as a result. 🙂

      • zumiee said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:11 pm

        Cool article; thanks.

  28. djloo27 said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:03 pm

    Could Timmy possibly be dealt at the deadline if Cain and Peavy are functioning?

    • zumiee said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:06 pm

      The money’s an issue, though.

  29. Carstie Clausen said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:14 pm

    This is one of those games where all the breaks are broken.

  30. Lurker John said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:16 pm

    Gotta take a pitch there, Duffy.

  31. zumiee said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:17 pm

    The ability of baseball to frustrate sometimes is immense.

  32. Flavor said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:22 pm

    Got home late. Turned on tv. Down 5-1. Turn off tv and go light barbecue……
    I’m guessing this wasn’t one of Timmy best starts…….

    • Lurker John said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:24 pm

      He sucked ass. 4 outs.

  33. blade3colorado said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:39 pm

    In Topeka bumfuck Kansas. Checked into my hotel and surprise, surprise – Giants/Dodgers game is on TV. Too bad the game sucks hind tit.

  34. Bozo said, on June 21, 2015 at 6:47 pm

    The great news would be coming back and winning this. The good news would be that its a short flight back to SF. The bad news would be one and a half back for the Division.

  35. wilcojoe said, on June 21, 2015 at 7:02 pm

    What am incredible shot by Spieth on 18. If this wasn’t such an exciting finish, everyone would be asleep. Norman and Pavin might be the dullest annoucers in the history of sport.

    • Lurker John said, on June 21, 2015 at 7:12 pm

      I agree and I’ll go a step further, they all suck. Listening to Joe Buck for baseball and football is bad enough. Now golf? Enough already. He’s like that mildew in your bathtub you can never quite get rid of.

  36. wilcojoe said, on June 21, 2015 at 7:20 pm

    Thank Christ, Johnson missed that putt so we didn’t have to hear Buck say, “we’ll see you tomorrow night”

  37. Bozo said, on June 21, 2015 at 7:20 pm

    I wonder if the Gloating Rooster will drop in after dinner?

  38. alleykat69 said, on June 21, 2015 at 7:21 pm

    Unbelievable choke job by Dustin Johnson!!
