OK, that advertising sign for YouTube right behind home plate is really irritating.

It keeps making me think that I just logged onto YouTube on my computer..... :sarcastic: :sarcastic:

2 out walk and then a 2 run blast by fly ball revolutionary Turner and it's 3-1 LA.

Turner at the plate and my wife says, "He's dangerous."  A second later, the pitch and CRACK!!!

That seventh inning stretch was Donald Trump approved.

I'm glad, I'd hate to have to stop watching... ;)

Why would Adrian Gonzales feel like a distraction if he were in the dugout, supporting his team?  He's on the DL, and can't play, but he's allowed to be in the dugout with his teammates.

He's vacationing in Europe with his family, which is fine......but a distraction to his team?  I don't see how.

You'd better hope the whole "time for Dodger baseball" thing works out better than it did the last time they tried it (game 5 of last year's NLCS)...

I think Larry King survives on blood transfusions from Keef Richards.

"Akron Ohio, what's your question? Hurry up and get to the point, I don't have time for this."

Keef, Larry and cockroaches will survive the nuclear holocaust.

So that's the story? That's just a dick move IMO. He's got 5 months to take vacation after the season.

If the Dodgers win, they should just ship his championship ring to a random address in Europe. Here ya go buddy....dick.

Provided the shortstop is retired and selling beers in the left field bleachers.

He'd have four souveniers pop-ups so far this series.

There's no HR in history with that kind of launch angle...not even in new Yankee Stadium...

Can Jansen get six outs in Game 2?

As much as I hate to admit it, probably.

It's a matter of perspective.  You being a Cubs fan, I understand the struggle.
