    It would appear that maybe the Rockies did not peak too soon.

    It would appear that the team to beat in the play-offs may indeed be the team that is doing it’s best to show us the best record in the N.L. is a fluke.

    How about a two game streak to carry into the play-offs boys?

    Any freakin’ time Dogs.

    Couldn’t have said it better myself. The way things are going, we won’t make it out of the 1st round. Where’s Torre? Where’s Colleti? Where is McCourt? Someone’s gotta flip a table or throw something in the clubhouse. I don’t know who said it before but I too hope I am wrong, but will also enjoy the I told you so’s.

    Name That Parody (Manny’s Song)

    Yea! My Swings Got A Hole In It
    Yea! My Swings Got A Hole In It
    Yea! My Swings Got A Hole In It
    I can’t buy no hit.

    Well I’m standin’ in the box
    With a bucket for a bat
    I’m waitin’ for a pitch
    That is as big as a hat

    ‘Cause My Swings Got A Hole In It
    Yea! My Swings Got A Hole In It
    Yea! My Swings Got A Hole In It
    I can’t buy no hit.

    Well, I went into the batter’s box
    I looked down in the dirt
    I seen the sliders and the curves
    Doin’ the he-hop-hurt.

    ‘Cause My Swings Got A Hole In It
    Yea! My Swings Got A Hole In It
    Yea! My Swings Got A Hole In It
    I can’t buy no hit.

    Well, there ain’t no reason
    for me workin’ to hard
    When I got a big contract
    in the boss man’s yard.

    ‘Cause My Swings Got A Hole In It
    Yea! My Swings Got A Hole In It
    Yea! My Swings Got A Hole In It
    I can’t buy no hit.

    Well, me and my hair
    we think that we are a Mensch
    And now we sit alone
    on the Dodger’s bench

    ‘Cause My Swings Got A Hole In It
    Yea! My Swings Got A Hole In It
    Yea! My Swings Got A Hole In It
    I can’t buy no hit.

    Free Pierre. Hey Frank move Mannywood to right-center so that he will know where he is suppossed to hit the ball!

    • Kay in L.A. says:

      Yay, Ken!! I like this one, also the one two songs back about critics. You should make youtubes of these….

      Manny’s $25mil butt is best on the Bench. Bring on Juan Pierre. And fire Torre.

  4. DRomo says:

    I would start Pierre tonight! Believe it or not he plays better than Manny in he field, and he won’t strike out 4 times. When did Manny become Andruw Jones?

    We are in a bad spot! Colorado has nothing to lose and we can only look bad even in winning the division

    The Dodger Fan’s Lament Parody (Name that Tune)

    Well, I’ve been waitin’ ever since 9/28
    Guess my team doesn’t realize the date
    Dodgers Lose, broken-hearted, again

    I’ll bet they’re out at night havin’ a ball
    Not even thinkin’ of winning at all
    Dodgers Lose, broken-hearted, again

    Well, I know just what I oughta do
    I oughta find some Team new
    But, Dodgers, I couldn’t forget about you
    Dodgers Lose, broken-hearted, again

    Why must I always be the one
    Watchin the game absent of any fun?
    Dodgers Lose, broken-hearted, again

    But I guess I’ll go on bein’ a fool
    Sittin’ around just waitin’ for a win
    Dodgers Lose, broken-hearted, again

    Well, I know just what I oughta do
    I oughta find some Team new
    But, Dodgers, I couldn’t forget about you
    Dodgers Lose, broken-hearted, again

    Dodgers Lose, broken-hearted, again
    Dodgers Lose, broken-hearted, again

  6. Mark Timmons says:

    Ken,

    You are losing it brother.

    Get in a 16-step program.

    ;)

  7. ken says:

    It’s late (it’s late)
    We gotta get a win
    It’s late (it’s late)
    We’ve been losing too long
    Too bad (too bad)
    We shoulda checked our schedule
    Can’t hit (can’t hit)
    We done changed every thing

    It’s late (it’s late)
    We’re ’bout to run outta gas
    It’s late (it’s late)
    We gotta get a win fast
    Can’t speed up (can’t speed up)
    We’re in a slow-down mode
    Fans, look at that schedule, why can’t it be wrong?

    If we coulda win the game and pitched a full nine
    Woulda had fun and plenty of time
    We got started just a little bit late
    Hope this won’t be our last game

    Look up (look up)
    Is that the Rockies we see?
    Can’t be (can’t be)
    Looks like a winning team to me
    It’s late (it’s late)
    I hate to face Frank
    Too bad (too bad)
    I know he’s gonna be mad
    It’s late (it’s late)
    We gotta win a game
    It’s late (it’s late)
    We’ve been losin too long

    (It’s late)

  8. Blue Haze says:

    We’ve created a monster!

    Ken,
    Roll that stuff out in a controlled manner, so that we all may appreciate it’s specialness. :)

    ___
    Okay, the sky is falling. My sister is at the game today, when she bought the tix I told her she waited to late in the season and the game would mean nothing, boy was I wrong (there’s a first time for everything).

    ___

    Ken, you need to work in the rhyme of “pitch” and “pills for a bitch” somewhere in describing some of the Dodger offensive woes.

    • ken says:

      When an artist is inspired the songs just keep rolling out uncontrollably. LOL. Yes I will save a couple songs for the NLCS.

      Mark I am done for today (I hope, and you pray!!!)

    • Kay in L.A. says:

      It’s my fault, Haze. I encouraged him.
      Hopefully, he’s done for the day as he said.
      Please pass the Beer.

  9. Blue Haze says:

    High Desert Mavericks!

  10. Badger says:

    No time for singing songs, time for rightin’ wrongs.

    Or smokin’ bongs.

    Not that it matters to anyone, but I stopped reading ken’s songs a long time ago. There you go Bill, another example of ignoring posts.

    Start Pierre? That would send a resounding message we don’t trust our #3 hitter and we are panicking.

    OK I am down with it. Start Pierre.

    This team needs a shutout. Come on pitching staff.

  11. ken says:

    Mark

    That is what I am doing. I am going to write 16 songs today!!!!

  12. Jim D says:

    Manny IS Andrew Jones in disquise without the roids !

  13. Bill Russell says:

    Who knew that when Manny was hitting everything in sight last year that he would come tumbling down this hard. Blake has been out two weeks so his K’s didn’t surprise me. Positive sign is Martin’s HR last night.

    I don’t know what to worry about the most, Pitching or Hitting or Both. I think our hitting is worse then the starting pitching currently. Our Pitching Ace Wolf didn’t look like a stopper to me yesterday but he’s the best we got right now. Can Kershaw peak at the right time or will be get wild and big eyed with a little pressure? I knew the “I Believe” theory was a fairly tail but it was worth a try. I turned my hat around backwards last year and Loney hit the dinger in Chicago so maybe I need to give that a try again this year.

    Like Gonzo and Badger said above. Let’s flip a table and win two games in a row going into the playoffs. GO POO I mean Blue

  14. Forrest says:

    My Mama always said you’ve got to put the past behind you before you can move on.

  15. Illini Dodger says:

    I STILL BELIEVE!!!

  16. Kay in L.A. says:

    The pic is perfect, Mark, says it all.

    Worse yet, the weather is absolutely beautiful. Full Moon tonight.

    I didn’t know who Captain Insano is, so I googled it and now I wish I hadn’t.

    :-)

  17. A Shot of Haeger says:

    I don’t let the things I can’t control…control how I feel. If I thought I could do anything to get this team to finally turn it around and start playing like the team we know they can… I would… but I can’t. We’re at the point where there isn’t much to be said. If they don’t realize what’s at stake…. there’s nothing anyone can do right now to drum that into their skuls. They aren’t stupid.

    I just have to trust and believe this team can win. No superstitions, no turning my hat upside down, no praying… that won’t help. It’s time to leave it on the field and root like hell for this team to win one of the next two games and failing that….winning the games needed to win the World Series.

    Go Dodgers!!!

  18. Blue Haze says:

    You can all be relieved, I found out my sister actually attended last nights game, she is the world’s biggest dodger jinx, I am not joking. So with her not in attendance tonight, I guarantee a victory tonight for our boys in blue. I kid you not, this is no BS, it is a lock, my sister will not be in attendance tonight, bet the mortgage tonight we pop the champagne corks.

  19. Bill Russell says:

    Forrest,
    I thought your mama said that “life is like a box of chocolates, you just never know what your gonna get”. Kay I was thinking that you got Ken all into thinking he was Don Henley and then you disappeared on us yesterday. It’s like you slappin at a bee and then running inside the house locking the door and leaving the rest of us outside to get stung.

  20. Kay in L.A. says:

    I would never do something like that, not meee….
    Ken is an emancipated minor.
    I have no control.
    Really!!

  21. Illini Dodger says:

    I STILL BELIEVE…..

    I STILL believe the Dodgers have the best record in the NL West.
    I STILL believe the Dodgers have clinched a playoff berth.
    I STILL believe the Dodgers have the best record in the National League.
    I STILL believe the Dodgers will win the NLDS.
    I STILL believe the Dodgers will win the NLCS.
    I STILL believe the Dodgers will win the World Series.

    YOU GOTTA BELIEVE, BABY!!!!!!!!!!

    BRING ON THE ROX!

  22. DRomo says:

    Haeger,
    So last weekend i started growing the playoff beard. Saturday was the last time I shaved after the Dodger win. Last night it hit me as I was drinking myself to sleep: “I gotta shave”. That changes everything, right?

    I think I am like you brother Bill, I try everything when I am watching. I sit in the same spot during a rally, even watch on a different TV if the team looks bad. This past week i have done everything but not watch. Thats coming soon.

    So here I am clean shaven and I now tonight will be the night. The beard starts tomorrow!

    • A Shot of Haeger says:

      Romo, I shaved 25 minutes ago in response to my Alma maters putrid showing in the biggest game of the season. Check UNLV football… but I’m hoping it works tonight too.

      I still believe! Giving up and being depressed isn’t fun.

  23. Illini Dodger says:

    St. Louis lost again today.

    I BELIEVE!

  24. Illini Dodger says:

    The Phillies are losing.

    I BELIEVE!

  25. joe need to tell them quite taking the first pitch down the middle .. and going o and 2 when up at bat.. looks like they are all looking for a walk… manny is taking way to many pitch..he is all way 0 and 2 just tell manny two close his eyes and then swing ..because it will have the same results.

  26. may be his hair is to long .and it make him swing over the ball

  27. Bill Russell says:

    I believe in miracles…….
    The Miracle Dogs of 2009.

    My hat is flipped around backwards. Brother Rome’s is clean shaven. Not the head I hope. Just the Casey Blake Beard.

    I’m ready for a new beginning……..
    And it starts right

    Now.

  28. Forrest says:

    Mark

    Today is the day when Kershaw establishes whether or not he is the True Ace of the Dodger staff. Go Blue!

  29. Mark Timmons says:

    Mr. Gump Sir,

    Your assessment is correct.

  30. DRomo says:

    No BRuss it was just the beard that had to go! With this noggin a shaved dome wouldn’t be pretty.

    So after crying myself to sleep last night I am back on board and ready for positive thinking.

    Lets finish it tonight! It is about heart now. It is about legacy. This team will not be remembered for the great start and the back to back division crown. This team will not be remembered for the breakout years by Kemp and Ethier. All you will hear is Manny was suspended, and the Dodgers lost a lead in the division in historic fashion in 2009.

    Finish it tonight.

  31. Illini Dodger says:

    Phillies Lost.

    I BELIEVE!!

  32. A Shot of Haeger says:

    I believe! The Clean shaven Vegas boy believes!

    Go Dodgers!
    Go Kings!

  33. Chris says:

    Dodgers are such chokers and Torre is a big loser!!! How the heck is he not responsible for letting this go this far. Freaking magic number has been at 1 forever – close the deal or he needs to be fired!! His job is to get their heads on straight, get their dang confidence back.

  34. A Shot of Haeger says:

    Sorry Chris, they aren’t chokers yet. They’re still in first place!

  35. Blue Haze says:

    Chris, Joe Torre gets a % of the gate, he wants this thing to go into the last game. It’s pretty obvious, dude!

    I’m tellin’ ya, the game is a lock tonight.

  36. Mr.Mike says:

    I am still numb and in stunned disbelief from yesterday, but it only takes one moment to change old Uncle Mo[mentum]. There is only one way to go once you hit bottom. Come on you bums, I don’t know if I can take this much longer. Here’s hoping everyone gets a shit-eating grin on their faces tonight. Lets go!

  37. Forrest says:

    Hooray for Bob. A coach finally gets thrown out of a game!!!

  38. Illini Dodger says:

    KKKKKKKKKershaw!

  39. Mr.Mike says:

    James!

  40. Mr.Mike says:

    Clayton!

  41. Mr.Mike says:

    I love You all .We are the Champions!

  42. Ken says:

    Finally they stop trying to pull every pitch, and when they finally hit the ball the other way, they WIN!!!

  43. Illini Dodger says:

    I STILL BELIEVE…..

    I believe the Dodgers have won the NL West.
    I believe the Dodgers have clinched a playoff berth.
    I believe the Dodgers have the best record in the National League.
    I STILL believe the Dodgers will win the NLDS.
    I STILL believe the Dodgers will win the NLCS.
    I STILL believe the Dodgers will win the World Series.

    YOU GOTTA BELIEVE, BABY!!!!!!!!!!

    BRING ON THE CARDS!

  44. DRomo says:

    AT LAST….

    Best record in NL , Back to back division champs!!

    Cheers to you all here. Thanks to MArk for letting us get together here.

    Let’s have some fun this week. Bring on the Cards!

  45. DRomo says:

    ONe more thing:

    How freaking clutch is Kershaw? That kid is money!

  46. Blue Haze says:

    I told ya, I hope you put cash down on the game, I told ya.

    My sister’s dodger jinx holds true. I put some serious cash money down on the dodgers, THANKS SIS!!!
