Got back from Glendale last night after watching Sat. and Sun. games. Nothin’ like Spring Training!! Beer, peanuts, and free hot dogs for the Camelback season ticket holder. Thank God it’s time for Dodger baseball. Can’t wait to get out there again. No excuse not to go if you are a loyal fan. 5 1/2 hours from Los Angeles and you sitting in the sun watching America’s game. Got to see Sandy!!! He could still pitch.

free hot dogs?! ok, if that’s what it takes I’ll provide the same thing to all game thread participants. redeem your coupons at freehotdogsfromhowie.com.

I’m a Twitter too. This is lonely.

Are the Cubs having BP?

February 25, 2013 1:16 pm

avatar

Yes, exactly. But Billingsley actually gets out of the inning. Probably ice next, then doctor, then surgery Wednesday.

Just tuned into the 2nd inning. What’s the deal the the white bills on the LA caps? Glad to see the regular Bills on the mound. :)
Vinny!!! Yeah.

February 25, 2013 1:52 pm

avatar

be grateful you didn’t didn’t see him in the first. you’d have been horrified. thanks for showing up, matt!!!

February 25, 2013 1:53 pm

avatar

love it when vin talks about statues. listening, dodgers?

February 25, 2013 1:54 pm

avatar

Hey Howard,
Glad you’re here, too. I’m on my lunch hour. Isn’t it nice. Nice to see Tony Gwynn. Hope he can make the club.

February 25, 2013 1:55 pm

avatar

I think he’s a longshot, but we’ll see him during the year at some point. they really need a righthand bat off the bench, preferably with some sock, and even better if he can play left and right.

February 25, 2013 1:58 pm

avatar

Much better 2nd.

February 25, 2013 2:00 pm

avatar

yep. but I’ll probably have to jumpstart my nights off from baseball, once every fifth day.

February 25, 2013 2:02 pm

avatar

I have an Oscar complaint. How did it win best screenplay? You said it was okay to complain, right? Who else are the Dodgers going to let pitch, today?

February 25, 2013 2:02 pm

avatar

Okay to complain about the Oscars? Django best screenplay? When “i gotta name”starts over the winter montage, I threw my milk duds at the screen.

February 25, 2013 2:04 pm

avatar

This could be a long day.

February 25, 2013 2:05 pm

avatar

it’s already a long day. but at least we have vin. imagine four hours of rick monday. or worse yet, eric collins.

February 25, 2013 2:06 pm

avatar

@eppis1  Wow, when the Croce kicked in I start giggling like Beavis… or is it Butthead.  Either way, I love me some Croce and I freakin’ loved the way Tarantino used it.  Perfect.

February 25, 2013 2:08 pm

avatar

@eppis1 worst oscars I’ve even seen by far. we planned ahead, knowing the musical numbers would annoy. so we dvr’d and started an hour late, and even fast forwarding through all the chicago songs, etc., and the commercials, it was still a complete nightmare. and blames seth all you want, he didn’t write and direct and produce. just clueless.

February 25, 2013 2:08 pm

avatar

@Steve in North Hollywood  @eppis1 tell me that guy doesn’t need therapy.

February 25, 2013 2:09 pm

avatar

another couple hundred comments and I’m good to go!

February 25, 2013 2:09 pm

avatar

So, apparently Bills was able to get the ball over the plate.  #Tryingtobemorepositive

February 25, 2013 2:10 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole  @eppis1  Me or Tarantino?  Nevermind, we probably both need it…

February 25, 2013 2:11 pm

avatar

@Steve in North Hollywood  @eppis1 him.

February 25, 2013 2:11 pm

avatar

Ouch! He got all of that one.

February 25, 2013 2:12 pm

avatar

he’s useless as ever. but gee, capuano looks good. I’ll never get through the year sober.

February 25, 2013 2:12 pm

avatar

@eppis1 get out the tape measure!

February 25, 2013 2:12 pm

avatar

One pitch at a time…

February 25, 2013 2:15 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole  @eppis1  It was a disjointed mess.  However, Kristen Stewart’s presentation was amazing!

February 25, 2013 2:16 pm

avatar

well said!

February 25, 2013 2:17 pm

avatar

@Steve in North Hollywood  @eppis1 that is one weird chick.

February 25, 2013 2:18 pm

avatar

Well, there goes Caps trying to lower his trade value.

February 25, 2013 2:19 pm

avatar

Vinny’s mini tribute to Koufax was nice. He sounds good. God, this feels right.

February 25, 2013 2:19 pm

avatar

I’d like to see a win already.

February 25, 2013 2:20 pm

avatar

If Gordon could hit .250, he could stick with the big club.

February 25, 2013 2:20 pm

avatar

@Steve in North Hollywood trying and succeeding. but they can’t trade him. they really can’t. bills is headed for surgery eventually.

February 25, 2013 2:20 pm

avatar

not if he fields .250 also.

February 25, 2013 2:21 pm

avatar

Babing!

February 25, 2013 2:22 pm

avatar

he’s also got to steal better than .750.

February 25, 2013 2:23 pm

avatar

More BP for the Cunbs.

February 25, 2013 2:24 pm

avatar

Cubs.

February 25, 2013 2:24 pm

avatar

ah, uribe.

February 25, 2013 2:25 pm

avatar

looks like uribe lost a pound during the winter.

February 25, 2013 2:25 pm

avatar

And the results are the same. Well, you never know, He could turn it around. I’d be happy if he could hit his weight.

February 25, 2013 2:28 pm

avatar

Gotta go back into the mines, have a good day.

February 25, 2013 2:29 pm

avatar

nice assist for dee there.

February 25, 2013 2:32 pm

avatar

i’d be happy if uribe can hit gordon’s weight.

February 25, 2013 2:33 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole how do you see him on the radio only?

February 25, 2013 2:42 pm

avatar

February 25, 2013 2:47 pm

avatar

whew

February 25, 2013 2:48 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole  I think he could eat Dee’s weight in one sitting…

February 25, 2013 2:48 pm

avatar

Tolleson can’t do any worse, can he?

February 25, 2013 2:54 pm

avatar

I’d like to see him replace Guerrier before too long. Like say, by April 1.

February 25, 2013 2:56 pm

avatar

Nice inning by Tolleson. 12 pitches. 8 for strikes.

February 25, 2013 3:03 pm

avatar

“World Cup games” Vin?

February 25, 2013 3:05 pm

avatar

“the dodgers roaring back on balks.”

February 25, 2013 3:13 pm

avatar

Nice inning by Guerrier. 7 pitches and off to the golf course.

February 25, 2013 3:29 pm

avatar

I do like that rainbow curve of his…except for those 450 big flys when he hangs em.

February 25, 2013 3:30 pm

avatar

wow..just found game on tv…thought this was a radio only..lol

February 25, 2013 3:43 pm

avatar

you have to get up pretty early in the morning.

February 25, 2013 3:44 pm

avatar

I will never attempt a radio-only game thread. just fyi. I wouldn’t put you through it.

February 25, 2013 3:45 pm

avatar

I just realized…2 NL teams playing and they are using the DH? What gives?

February 25, 2013 3:46 pm

avatar

what, you wanna see chad bilinglsey hit?

February 25, 2013 3:46 pm

avatar

Quick. What’s the cub record for ties in a preseason?

February 25, 2013 3:46 pm

avatar

grand slam please.

February 25, 2013 3:48 pm

avatar

You have a point, I guess.

February 25, 2013 3:49 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole  Five!  No, wait… six!

February 25, 2013 3:51 pm

avatar

@Steve in North Hollywood that would be a tough one to look up.

February 25, 2013 3:52 pm

avatar

paco!

February 25, 2013 3:52 pm

avatar

this is by far the best spring training game thread we’ve done. EVER!

February 25, 2013 3:55 pm

avatar

and all without the commish.

February 25, 2013 3:55 pm

avatar

that last ball he threw looked  way out outside,,,ouch

February 25, 2013 4:09 pm

avatar

vinny’s paying a nice tribute to him, though. but who knows, he might be fine by tomorrow.

February 25, 2013 4:10 pm

avatar

dontrelle’s looking a loss in about ten minutes.

February 25, 2013 4:12 pm

avatar

some loud spectators…

February 25, 2013 4:19 pm

avatar

so much for the McPherson strut.

February 25, 2013 4:20 pm

avatar

nice

February 25, 2013 4:31 pm

avatar

A win in Spring Training. I will sleep well tonight.

February 25, 2013 4:31 pm

avatar

thanks, guys. maybe we’ll try this again on thrs. tv game at noon.

February 25, 2013 4:32 pm

avatar

This thread is over, but I just wanted to say that I hate the Giants.  Just wanted to put it out there…

February 25, 2013 5:07 pm

avatar

lincecum driven from the box, can’t get five outs.

February 26, 2013 1:56 pm

avatar

dodgers score five in the second to lead 5-0. and of course, juan uribe grounds into a double play with the bases loaded.

February 26, 2013 1:56 pm

avatar

nice outing for giants’ edlefsen. he threw 15 pitches, all of three for strikes. three walks, two hits, two of his own runs and two of timah’s.

February 26, 2013 2:01 pm

avatar

watched some of the game yesterday &
didn’t recognize any of the dodger players;
 
granted looking at the isotropes roster,
none of those aaa~hopefuls were in the lineup.
 
so, won’t be wasting any time watching players like dallas mc pherson,
DESPERATELY hanging on to a career that has ended & that he NEVER had ~

February 26, 2013 2:18 pm

avatar

what, you didn’t recognize the name “jeremy moore?”

February 26, 2013 2:19 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole 
 
juan uribe has to be lumped into the same biggest
mistake category as jason schmidt / darren dreifort /
j.d. drew / andrew jones / branch rickey NOT picking
off roberto clemente from his own a rule 5 draft ~

February 26, 2013 2:22 pm

Commish in da house!

February 26, 2013 2:22 pm

@The Commish why ?

February 26, 2013 2:23 pm

Oh no — Larry is back . How sweet it is!!

February 26, 2013 2:23 pm

@The Commish you can have your wife back now ~

February 26, 2013 2:23 pm

@larrydoby  @Howard Cole True dat, larry.

February 26, 2013 2:24 pm

avatar

@larrydoby I thought I saw your shoes under my bed this AM.

February 26, 2013 2:24 pm

avatar

@Steve in North Hollywood 
 
read that b.s. that justin sellers was throwing out there for getting arrested; he
stated that the cops in san fran had it out for him becuase he was a dodger;
 
there’s news for sellers, he will NOT make a dodger roster & will 
spend the rest of his pathetic so-called career in the minors ~

February 26, 2013 2:27 pm

avatar

@The Commish 
 
must have fallen off from being squarely
planted in your backside all winter ~

February 26, 2013 2:31 pm

avatar

ok, now everybody be nice. we’re all on the same side – MINE!

February 26, 2013 2:31 pm

avatar

so kenley has to reliever league mid-inning. 5-3. oy.

February 26, 2013 2:32 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole 
 
whatever you say dear;
 
here sir, you have the remote ~

February 26, 2013 2:32 pm

avatar

@Howard Cole 
 
now, there’s a name we can recognize;
 
he’s all heart ~

February 26, 2013 2:33 pm

avatar

and he walks his first man, of course.

February 26, 2013 2:34 pm

avatar

@larrydoby Um, ouch. that smarts.

February 26, 2013 3:12 pm

avatar

Where are we, inning and game wise?

February 26, 2013 3:13 pm

Chess makes the child learn how to strategize
aspects of the game and life. In addition, a child can also learn the
importance of foresight, and planning.
