Their defense was:
1) They didn't know Arizona was hot in summer.
2) They were playing Pokémon, "not" Yu-Gi-Oh!
|Aug-02-16|| ||WannaBe: 4:05 mark. Helllllllllo future ex-wives!!!
|Aug-05-16|| ||WannaBe: iOS 9.3.4. have been released:
|Aug-10-16|| ||Penguincw: Yay, Dodgers are tied for 1st for the first time since May/14. On that day, Kazmir pitched for the Dodgers. Today, Kazmir gets the start.|
If the postseason began today, there could be some trouble, as (under the rules of the 2nd wild card) they would play Game 163 in SF. The winner would head to WSH for Game 1 of the NLDS, while the loser hosts MIA in the WC game, the winner of that game will head to CHC for Game 1 of the NLDS (so many extra, un-necessary games). Under the 1994-2011 format, it would be CHC-LAD, WSH-SF, no extra games needed.
Same problem with TOR and BAL right now, both tied in the standings (though BAL has a better winning %). If the postseason began today, TOR would host BAL, winner goes to CLE for Game 1 of the ALDS, loser hosts BOS for the Wild Card game, with the winner of that game going to TEX for Game 1 of the ALDS. 1994-2011, just TEX-BAL, CLE-TOR.
Personally, I don't like the 2nd wild card spot. I rather have it only 4 teams make it, or 8 teams, not 5. But if 4 teams were to make it, abolish the rule saying 2 teams from the same division can't faceoff in the LDS.
|Aug-10-16|| ||WannaBe: <Penguincw> Lots of games left, plenty of time for the whole LAD (starters) pitching staff to go on the DL.|
With Kershaw gone, none of the pitchers have lasted (long) into a game, that bull-pen will be depleted by mid-September, if not earlier.
You're eligible? Right?? I'll pull some strings and see if LAD will sign a lefty from Canada. =))

Damn, LAD 3rd in the majors in bullpen use, behind CIN and OAK.
< You're eligible? Right?? I'll pull some strings and see if LAD will sign a lefty from Canada. =)) >
Awesome, I always wanted to pitch in the majors for the Dodgers.
I hope they sign my ex-video game player though. He can throw a knuckleball at 60 mph and a fastball at 100 mph (along with an intermediate curveball and changeup at 80 mph). I'm sure that's bound to mess up hitter's timing and provoke poor contact. ;)
|Aug-10-16|| ||WannaBe: <Penguincw> Yeah, them relievers are getting no relief. Ugh. |
Not going to be pretty in two or three weeks. Or sooner.
|Aug-10-16|| ||WannaBe: At least S. Kazmir is doing good today, 6IP 89 pitches, so far... Could a complete game and 115 pitches in the future?|
|Aug-11-16|| ||WannaBe: That is freakin' WOW.
I'll raise you Shastakovich and see your Rhapsody in Blue and call your List. Wow. Great piano music.
|Aug-11-16|| ||OhioChessFan: <(On a side note, other writers that I enjoyed, Mike Royko, I may have the spelling wrong, Chicago columnist, not right/left, but I always thought he was dead on. Molly Irvin, I can really do without.)>|
Mike Royko rocked. He had a column back in the late 80's maybe, bemoaning kids walking around with Walkmans 24/7 and mocking the inevitable stupidity they were sowing. Of course it's gotten much worse since then, but it annoys me to death too. Molly Ivins always made me want to vomit.
|Aug-11-16|| ||saffuna: Another plus for Ivins, then. A brilliant writer who punched holes everywhere, especially on Texas politics. The collection "Molly Ivins Can't Say That, Can She?" is full of great articles.|

|Aug-18-16|| ||WannaBe: Well, it happened again, Win10 did an update, and my mouse (MPC by Microsoft) quit working.|
Had to move it to another USB slot to get it working again. This have had happen with the first few Win10 updates, but have not happened for a while. Until today's update.
Ugh! Minor annoyances.
|Aug-18-16|| ||WannaBe: <pyke> just timed out on 2 of our games on GameKnot. His forum/profile says "So Long and Thanks for all the Fishes" (from Hitchhikers Guide).|
I sincerely hope he is alright.
|Aug-22-16|| ||WannaBe: Summer League Hockey in Minnesota. Gotta love the "Trophy".|
|Aug-22-16|| ||WannaBe: Think I'll actually watch this (reality) show:
|Aug-22-16|| ||thegoodanarchist: < OhioChessFan: .... Molly Ivins always made me want to vomit.>|
Not surprised at that. She is too far left for me, so she must seem like Karl Marx to you.
|Aug-22-16|| ||saffuna: But she wrote a lot about bidness and the lege.|
|Aug-24-16|| ||WannaBe: The high price of living in the Bay Area, Oakland home listed for $400K. That's right, not a typo, Four Hundred Thousand.|
Address in the article says it's close to the Oakland Zoo.
|Aug-24-16|| ||heuristic: <house in bay area>
in a quasi-related note; this is hilarious:
|Aug-24-16|| ||WannaBe: <heuristic> Thank goodness my life isn't like that.|
