Playin' with the Angels

Buchholz vs. Pinero

Attention, shoppers: VMart is back in the lineup. But as the Rays and Yanks continue to play well, is a West Coast trip full of its share of miscues going to derail us altogether? The question will be answered the way they always are in baseball: game by game.

East coasters may be looking forward to the end of baseball after midnight. As a West coaster, I feel like 7:00 is the perfect time for games to end, not to begin. But we're in Orange County regardless, playin' with the Angels.

Both Tampa and the Yanks have gone ahead. I'm getting fuckin' tired of that.

Fucking stupid-ass spitting pubic-facial-hair-wearing Matt Garza...

And just like that, there's an RBI from a catcher! Welcome back, Victor!

Amy said...

Hi, guys. I have no baseball on TV since I am in NYC, and I am too tired for threading. Hope things go well, though I can't say I am feeling upbeat.

THE LARGE FATHER. A smaller, yet, effective dong.

Did my comment not pass muster here?

It's been a bit painful so far, but the Ortiz homer was nice. The park treats him well -- Home Run Derby 'n all.

Amy said...

It seems only Ish and Zen can post. Weird. I have tried a couple of times but nothing comes through.

tim said...

Reposting my silly rant from earlier, for the fuck of it.

Well fuck. This calls for a terrible poetic rant.

Optimism - it dwindles by the loss;
Bullpens, make swiss cheese look hole-less.
"This surely must be the final nail in the coffin"
Cry the media dolts.

But wait - we've played just ninety-nine matches yet,
Another sixty-three remain before this book of twenty-ten is closed!
Yes, as the crimson hose set sail for the great fields of Los Angeles, many of their finest muskets are just days away from return.
The great stallion of a backstop to return tonight; the sack thief and laser technician to arrive shortly, a cactus in the distance.

'Tis true, les sox are five games out of the playoffs - five games which seems like a mountain -
Mount Red Sock - already triumped once this season by these very players, during better times,
Times when the manager's head was not full of vile salmon roe as it was this past week-end,
Bullpen barnacles Delcarmen and Okajima continuing to make appearances in games with meaning.

Alas, Theo - now is the time for Bowden. Now is the time for bullpen renewal.
Now is the time for the once mighty manager to regain his consciousness.
Now is the time to close the gap.

For if now is not the time --- when is?

btw ish - your avatar does not come through on my comp. not sure if zen sees the same broken img as me, but yeah - does not compute.

tim said...

lolz, good pickup angels!

tim said...

So...moderation, makes sense but comments not going through.

Alright, later guys. See ya tmrw.

Zenslinger said...

Am I wrong to think the game is sewn up in a Large Fatherly bow?

Zenslinger said...

Grrrrrrrr.

Zenslinger said...

Fire insurance.

Zenslinger said...

Dirty. As it should be.

redsock said...

Wins are good.

I'm very sorry others' comments weren't going through. I really don't know why. It's set to allow comments. I am usually more concerned about the possibility that trolls will come onto a thread because I am not sure how to moderate comments. I set up the thread but was only checking it out every so often, and just assumed others weren't around. I didn't do anything to make everyone else's comments appear today.

tim said...

I think ish put 'em through.

No worries about the moderation, I figured it was for the best unless there is an active troll-zapper watching the thread.
