    Yeah. That's fucking typical. Let a horseshit health option with no real teeth infect a team's success. Let it drop them into greater depths of ineptitude just to keep pace with the thought Police of California.

    Fuck this team & this whole pandemic disposition.

    So it's the 4th inning & the North Tijuana Padres leas the Frisco Sodomites 2-0 in the 4th.

    Odds on disappointment... 2 to 1 ...

    Loud boos for Tatis for the way he trotted around the bases after hitting a HR.

    Taking after their douchebag idol, Bumgarner.

    Know how you prevent a guy from celebrating? You don't give up a HR.

    While I don't like that sort of behavior, it's not that big of a deal. I know that Bauer is unpopular now, but when he acted that way, he also blessed similar behavior. He didn't have a problem with other people acting in the opposite way towards him. At least he was consistent.

    GNAT FANS make a huge deal out of calling their city "Frisco," as if it's some sort of sacrosanct thing to call it anything they don't dub perfect or apt.

    Shit .. I'm from Los Angeles, born and raised there. I was never offended even for two seconds that somebody would call it LA. BFD. Call it whatever. LA perpetually kicked eleven colors of dogshit out of everything in San Francisco for decades until Joe Montana came along and changed that.

    Until about a decade ago, the Giants mostly sucked, but then things changed. You'd think they'd finally lighten up. But no. Still douches. They had a five-year run that was exceptional. You think they'd get the hell over themselves now. We're all supposed to bend a knee and bless ourselves every time we go near their blessed city, their feces-strewn streets, or walk anywhere in the vicinity of their pumpkin colored team.

    So now I say Frisco about 20X more than I should. Now I do it to get on their nerves. So I hope they continue to get upset when Tatis hits home runs off of them. SD has about seven more games against Frisco. I hope he hits 27 home runs against them just so I can see them all soil their undies every time he waltzes and stutter steps before he gets to 3B.

    Bitchen. Fraudres win 7-4.

    1 game back. LA has zero excuses anyway... but if they have the nads, they need to run the table on Cincy this weekend and make these Frisco Phucknutz sweat a bit.

    I think it's reasonable to say this - although as you who know a bit about my mercurial self will say I'm without reason often - that some teams may just be blessed with a magical year.

    We all know the truth about the 88 Dodgers - they were absolutely NOT the best team in baseball that year. Arguably, there were two teams that were as good as the Blue that year - the Reds & Twins; two were head & shoulders than LA - the Mets & Athletics. It wasn't even close. LA had zero business playing straight up against either of those last two teams. And I recall Jim Murray saying that the Twins matched up well against LA, and that if they could've gotten past an insanely driven Oakland team, they'd have beaten a lame Boston team and likely have beaten LA in the Series.

    Now comes the unreasonable me post - this could be the Gnats team that pulls an 88 Dodgers... I know. And Jesus wept.

    But they keep pulling games out of their ass. And (despite @Bluezoo denying it) other teams are ABSOLUTELY rolling over in some cases. I don't think the Braves rolled over... but Frisco pulled that game our of their ass. After all ... they pulled a Dodger 9th out of the fire. They gave up a lead in the 9th, tied it, then got a sac fly out of a pitcher in extras. That's witchcraft shit right there.

    This LA team is absolutely better than Frisco. Matchup the rosters. Even with Bellinger as an absolute zero, no manager or GM would choose Gausman over Buehler... not even Zaidi. Forget that Walker seems snakebit since blowing up versus Frisco last week. Every GM in the game would slice off a testicle to have that skinny bastard on the hill for his team, and Gausman wouldn't cause a second of hesitation.

    So ... wtf am I even posting about?

    I don't know. Maybe I'm channeling my inner @rube ... maybe @irish is right and I'm in the closet. Or maybe @harkeyed is right and Kentucky has me all redneck & superstitious.

    But as much as I belive the 2012 and 14 gnats backed into their rings then, it's this team that has a charm about it and that bothers me the most.

    LA should be shamed of its performance. And the manager is the reason the team isn't at 100 wins already. Bellinger as a starter has cost this team seven games alone. I've seen Cody come to bat with RISP 30 TIMES in the last month, and he's had a whopping 13 rbis in his last 35 games. That's since Aug 1. He's not slumping. He's killing this team. And that's not because Frisco is good; it is because LA is playing like someone in the world of Harrison Bergeron ( it's a Kurt Vonnegut story... you should look it up).

    Show me again, on the end, I'm still angry with this team for all the same things. I hate all the woke nonsense, the BLM ridiculousness, the pretentious attempts to be politically conscious while all they really are are a bunch of millionaires playing a boys game. That's definitely a MLB problem, not an LA problem. But it still galls the shit out of me as a longtime fan.

    The division race isn't over nor is LA doomed in a one-game playoff. But there's enough to see here that blaming bad umpires (we should - they fucking suck) & lay down opponents (there have been many where they did) means more than the real problem - the LA Dodgers are their worst enemy, and Frisco is having a lucky year that makes no damn sense at all.

    That's a lethal combo if you love the Dodgers.

    I never denied the Giants pulled games out of their asses...ever. Not once. I do however, think the the " teams laying down for the Giants because they hate the Dodgers" is schoolyard shit. Real crybaby stuff.
    Of course SF pulls games out of their asses...therein lies their strength and why they are in front by two games.
    Damn, if you're gonna mention me in your post, get it right, boyo.

    I think what you guys are underestimating is the power that comes out of SF asses.
    They got a lot nuts up their ass.
    You would think they were squirrels.
    Or hamsters.
    Hey but nature abhors a vacuum.
    And natures gonna fill it.
    What comes in must go out.
    And it takes plenty of nuts to win in SF.
