    My IRA heart has me thinking"pipe bombs" for the ESPN team. To read their fecal account of 2016 MLB action, it's all about the BoSox-CUBBIE inevitability of it all. Now, I'm well aware that the Dodgers could feck up a two-car parade, and may well do so, but it's bullshit to read the nonsense over there. They set their caps to the expected result and then pretend the rest of baseball doesn't matter.

    It's just a piss-poor 'sports network' ...

    and that fat boorish sacred cow berman needs to be gone as well
    never liked that guy
    and his shtick became tired about 2 decades ago
    yesterday kurkjian (who i actually like) said that if the ws ends up cubs/red sox, everyone will be happy because it's what everyone wants
    wtf???
    i have nothing against either team but now i hope they both lose in the lds
    actually, scratch that
    let us sweep the "mighty" cubs in the lcs so all those talking head douches can jump onto our bandwagon
    fucken idiot lemmings

    Thought this was his last year. Thank god. He's such a pompous windbag.

    If I hear "back back back back back" again, my shoe is going through the TV.

    True story anecdote alert:

    25 years ago, Berman drank at the place I was bartending at in Anaheim. It was opening Day 1990. He'd worked the Angels opener. He then came in - buzzed at 5 PM & stinking of sweat & smoke - and proceeded to slip a room key from his hotel to the 16 year-old hostess. I told him his ESPN contract was likely void in the event of statutory rape charges ... Unfazed, he didn't desist from hitting on her like she was a trout in a stocked pond. She ignored him and I've loathed his tubby-creep ass ever since.

    ... I hope he got chancroids from a French whore since then ... but enough about Hillary Clinton.

    Why exactly are we clamming for respect and kudos from sources like ESPN? Last time I checked, we hadn't won shit in decades. Win first then moan, because we aren't shit.

    How do you delete the image of a fat, hairy, sweaty, smoke scented, inebriated, fart bag, actually having sex, out of your brain.

    Fuck, and it's only Tuesday.

    I wouldn't say we are shit. We've been also-rans for 28 years. We've made the postseason enough to be picked in April or discussed in September.

    I get your point, but "we ain't shit" discounts too much the Dodger name and a few other "we ARE hot shit" facts: Clayton is STILL the best pitcher in baseball and the Dodger bullpen is the best one in the playoffs in either league. Cubs-fluffers will trumpet Arrieta but that's erroneous. His arm may fall off tomorrow. It's not last year anymore.

    Yeah. I get it. Fuck us until we win something. I respect your blunt honesty. I even share that sentiment. But the Dodgers aren't shit. And I'm not clamming for ESPN - I merely expect the most visible worldwide sports network to NOT hit their knees and swallow the seed of NY, SF, Boston & Chicago when LA is arguably a larger market right now than any of those others.

    No Strasberg for the Nats. Officially no Matz for the Mets. Benoit for the Jays hurt in the basebrawl yesterday.

    Not the least bit surprised.
    Said it before, love my people and the fan base, but its the same fan base that had Corey Seager backing up Addison Russell in the all star game.
    Big picture, Dodger fans care, but not to the level of those other fan bases and MLB media plays it that way.
    Its not even about any bias against the west coast, obviously because SFG gets love and of course ESPN now has a base in LA.

    To compare, this doesn't happen to LA when it comes to the NBA.
    Yes, LAD needs to win a WS, but have the Cubs?
    So ultimately Dodger fans as a whole need to start caring more, and just for example: stop allowing the whole damn Chicago Cubs roster to start in the all star game.
    Make more of an effort to get one of the 3 best everyday players in baseball a starting spot in the ASG..that'd be nice.
    Corey Seager not getting the vote was embarrassing as fuck and its not like the Dodgers don't have the nationwide fan base to get that done either.
    Dodger fans just don't care enough.
    And MLB media knows they don't have to hype LAD because big picture, LA fans don't care enough about that shit anyway, they'll " show up and leave early " regardless.

    Its baseball, its an event, and if we get to the WS and start out on the road that'll be another reason to GAF.

    But yeah, thats the very spirit I was talking about.

    MLB has turned into a Little League style "let's let everyone play so no one's offended" event (despite the HFA aspect to it).

    That's why I don't watch it or give a fuck.

    The ASG was just an example of interest.
    Despite all the reasons to not give a fuck, Cubs' fans still put their votes in.
