    It's been made clear - unless the Dodgers can rip off a mother of a win streak, and assert that A) they have two starters who WILL go a solid 7, B) Jansen returns to form and becomes a lights out guy again, and C) the hitters drive in EVERY walk they get, EVERY bases loaded situation they get, and EVERY leadoff extra base hit they get ... we're effed. I say that because the Giants, Royals, Cubs, and Astros did that in their years of getting rings. And if I'm supposed to get a chubby just to see LA limp-dick it into the postseason, only to get clubbed like a harp seal by the Braves or Cubs, no thanks. I'd rather see them finish fourth than that again.

    Well ... from your mouth to God's ears, brohim. I sure picked a bad time to go clean and sober. But on the bright side, I'm down 20 pounds in three weeks.

    Shit me too bro!
    Sober always feels so good even if the body aches a lot more.
    I ate my last cookie 3 weeks ago and dropped 25 lbs.
    5 more lbs than you just because im a dick like that.
    but I started at 265 this time and now down to 240.
    not done a damn thing but gone to the beach each sunday
    and eaten a diet mostly of saturated fat and bony meats
    if you wanna burn fat you must eat fat
    or else how your brain gonna remember that its natural fuel source is fat
    you know fat like oil, petroleum, gasoline... fuel
    im a slug on land but I fly in the water
    even got to swim with a baby whale last week down at seal beach
    I tried to talk to it but my pet sounds were not getting through
    everyone got out the water of course
    I swam towards the big fish of course
    its not a day at the beach unless the lifeguard pulls me out the water
    he said I was 15 feet from the 20 foot whale
    i told him that I had never been near such an awesome sized animal before and wanted to see it up close
    he told me to go to the zoo next time.
    he was kind of a dick about it
    but IMO that is part of his job
    making sure dumbasses like me dont get crushed by a stray flipper
    I dont partake to get crazy
    I partake to blunt my crazy
    because that edge can be razor thin
    so for now im mixing some tonic with gin
    you know for health and stuff

    It’d be nice to only be 2 back at the start on Tuesday, but I’m doubtful. One thing to watch the final month is the SOS. The Dodgers just went through an absolutely brutal nearly 2 month stretch. Checking the schedules going forward the D’Backs will have their hands full(Cubs 3, @Hou 3, Braves 4), with 4 each at Rox & Dodgers while hosting the teams for 3 each. The only .500+ the Dodgers face are the Rox/D’Backs and 4 at the Cardinals. Rox host Philly for 4 and a likely DOA Nats for the final series.

    Good stuff, brother.

    And my weight and my faith face the same struggles ... I know what I am supposed to do, but my weaknesses make it hard to actually do it.

    I have lost 100# twice in my life - once in my early 30s, and again nine years ago. This is my last time because the body cannot endure that destruction that much, especially not after 50. I'm very fortunate to have a bull's constitution. My doctor cannot believe my blood work - it looks more like a guy 20 years younger and 80 pounds lighter. Still, there's work to be done and I know what I have to do. Ain't nothing to it but to do it.

    I agree they view this as a throw away year, but I say if baseball is life, which I've heard all of mine, then Buddha has said it best... " The trouble is, you think you have time"...

    Had no idea who Ariel Jurado was, and after looking him up I’ll be upset if we don’t score 10 runs off him. He’s awful

    Yep. That's why two of our chickens are named Ariel and Elsa. My girls will name any additional pet Moana, I'm quite certain.
