    Ok. But I concur that the DBacks & Pads have lain down to Frisco and I'm not alone here in that thinking. It may well be schoolyard but it is in the schoolyard that baseball became America's pastime - and now it is NOT America's pastime anymore.

    I did not say you said Frisco this or that. Like me, you blame LA. In this we share kinship. Still, you dismiss schoolyard and I embrace it. Why in hell are 50 & 60 year old men following the same team for 30, 40, or 50 years - intellectual stimulation? Sabermetrics? Bill James allegiance? Scientific empiricism?

    I'm still playing 3B in La Palma Little League in 1977, BZoo. I'm still trying to hit one over that fence into the drainage ditch by the fire station off the rich kid who called me fat ass at tryouts. And when I beat his ass that day and rounded 3B ... fucking SCHOOLYARD was what I felt. Fuck Todd the twat and his rich realtor dad at Tarbell. Fuck the LPLL Indians and their sponsors, McDonald's. Long live the LPLL Braves, and our sponsor, Carmichael Contactors.

    And fuck the Pads and Snakes for rolling over to the Frisco sodomites (by my count) six times this year. That's a conservative estimate.

    Schoolyard forever, until the heavens fall.

    Will Smith of the Braves is a fat slob who shouldn’t be employed. The Braves having him as their closer gives them a 0% chance of contending for a title. The Giants have definitely had some lucky wins this season but that fat loser for Atlanta blowing a save is pretty normal. Hell, he saved our season last year when he threw that meatball to our Will Smith.

    Apples and oranges, imo.
    Schoolyard emotions of why a team is losing and not playing up to what it should is a lot different than loyalty to one team for years and years. Loyalty doesn't require growing up. But understanding why things are going they way they are, the real reasons, does.
    If it works for you to attribute it all to back then, then great.
    And if you find that others feel teams lay down for the Giants, and that gives you fortitude, then good, too. The Padres were accused of it on here, but then they won two, putting us really close, it all screeched to a halt. Why didn't they lay down then ? Why win ?
    And now it's SF roiding because previous scrubs and old guys are hitting...like Muncy and Pujols ?
    And if they're roiding, I ask again ( unanswered all the other times I asked) why haven't they been caught then?
    It's only a message board with opinions, and all are entitled to theirs.
    But lucky (luckier than LA, say), roiding and a complicit group of teams laying down for them so we ( LA) specifically don't win again, isn't mine. Just a bit too much " I'm taking my ball and going home" for me...
    But it's good for a chuckle while we watch this Red team fuck us over.

    Today is half over. LA win so if Frisco loses, it's back to one game.

    So be it, BZoo. I still respect you. Some homo.

    gotta love all the padre apologists trying to spin this as a positive
    yeah, so how’d you end up doing today lol?
    and a self-serving ckunt like machado telling tatis it’s not about you is about as ironic as shit gets

    I would have been a Los Alamitos kid had we stuck around those parts.

    That, or the trashcans that the taint-tanning manager of that shitshow team/city bangs on whenever the opposing pitcher throws a breaking ball...

    Nothing surprises me anymore.

    I guess if you can take the performance enhancing drugs from start to finish, and not test positive for six months, you're cheaters exrtraordinare...and the whole team, too...top to bottom...does anyone know how they're doing it ?

    This is ANOTHER reason why I'm not buying and more gear or supporting pro sports.

    China unleashes a biohazard weapon on the world and particularly on this country and these greedy SOBs don't care. It's profit & loss, bottom line, and fuck off America.

    well as we all know cheaters evolve all the time to stay ahead of the detection and until we knew about steroids and trash cans we didn't
    i have a hard time knowing they are actually competitive let alone holding the best record in baseball
    they had guys holding on in the twilight of their careers, journeyman pitchers and a bunch of scrubs and suddenly they all become an ultra clutch take no prisoners juggernaut?
    balco has bay area in the name and victor conte is still out their doing something
    sure there are many others trying to cross the diamond w the pearl as well
    they're definitely doing something
