Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Nuts - somehow I missed one right in the wheelhouse. Josh Rawitch of the Dodgers reminded me this morning that the Dodgers had leadoff and walkoff homers on August 29, 2006: Rafael Furcal in the first inning and Ramon Martinez in the 16th.

I still believe that my note about the Dodgers homering on their first and last pitch for the first time in Los Angeles holds up.

Picnic photo question:

Does Shimmin have pens in his shirt breast pocket...?

1 I think he did. That (and the pleats) appear clearer in this photo:

It looks like Elbert has pitched very well the last few weeks in relief at Jacksonville. What are the chances he gets a call up on Spetember 1st?

Also, Lindblom has looked very good, with unbelievable control at Great Lakes. Is he as good as he has looked and from you smart prospect guys, how does he project?

Shimmin did indeed have two pens. I believe one was only for fending off would-be attackers, however.

GoBears, I have never been to Juanitas in Encinitas, but I will make a point to go there perhaps this week. Thanks!

On a related note, my sister in law has a simple recipe for carnitas that involves putting a pork roast in a slow cooker with a can of Herdez green salsa for about 8 hours or so, then just pulling apart the meat when it's done. It's always delicious.

And thanks to Eric Stephen, xaphor and Bluebleeder for joining me in the early morning.

Shimmin looks like a pretty big guy in that photo. Maybe he can be Fedor's next opponent.

My weight class is the same as B.J. Penn.

I just want to say that I held three sets of "let's have everyone introduce themselves" and still I failed to meet quite a few people, it appears.

Next year, we're gonna do six rounds of intros, or wear the dreaded nametags.

My BABIP was horrible, three line drives all caught. On the plus side my defensive range should be through the roof as I was covering both 3rd and left field for a stretch.

From the "comments are funny/sad on other sites department," here is a comment from Awful Announcing's mention of Kent saying Vin Scully talks too much:

Vin Scully should've received a lifetime ban after his blatant, unprofessional cheerleading for the Mets during his broadcast of the 1986 World Series.

I would like to remind everyone that I took two walks during the fast pitch game, each with a full count! I made Bluebleeder throw those pitches!

Yep, I'd say that's the strangest thing I'll write all day.

8 Yeah, my wife makes a pretty mean batch of carnitas herself, but it takes all day. She's looking for the occasional instant gratification (having wasted someone else's whole day).

Any locals have suggestions on taquerias that make great carnitas around here? Thanks much!

I had no idea you were at the picnic. Did you arrive during the game and I missed you or did I just whiff when introduced.

Special kudos to Rob's wife for joining the fast pitch game.

The next step has to be a softball picnic where all the other bloggers play the DT faithfull. Maybe we can get the K Brothers to show up, they look like bruisers.

When we lived in North Hollywood we were partial to a place called "Speedy's" on Lankershim between Sherman Way and Saticoy. They set up shop outside at night and the carnitas were excellent.

Then again, Greg Brcok snuck in and avoided the group introductions so his low profile can be maintained.

In just about every World Series, fans of both teams accuse the play-by-play announcers of favoring the team they aren't rooting for.

That is what happens when you listen with your heart instead of your ears.

16 Nametags at Dodger Stadium last year would have been awful, but maybe they wouldn't be so bad at a picnic+++. A nametag would have prevented me from suffering the embarrassment of introducing myself to xaphor TWICE.

+++ "Hello, My Name Is" would NOT be permitted.

I did like how Jon's wife and kids all sported Dodger Thoughts shirts. Actually, the youngest didn't wear one. I think it's clear next year's batch of DT wear should include onesies. :)

How fast was Jesse Owens and Bob Hayes? Just curious if the other gender is coming close to approaching what the fastest times for men were 40-60 years ago.

There was also nothing better than watching Eric, Andrew, and I starting at Jon's crying son and trying to forumlate a plan on how to get him to stop.

I will say that none of our plans were viable as all of us lacked the necessities to give him what he really wanted.

Bolt ran 23 mph during his 100m win. He might have been close to 30 mph at his peak speed.
2008-08-18 11:17:21
38.   Bob Timmermann
Hayes and Owens were hand timed, so they likely ran a little slower than listed. They didn't use electronic timing for the Olympics until 1968.

I'm only now figuring how who people were by the comments they are making and placing them with the actions. My hearing sucks and my attention span is even worse. I think the longer you are married the worse both of these things will get.

If I had to match the person with the name I'd have lost on both of the Andrew's. With Andrew Shimmins acerbic take on life I'd have expected someone with a harder edge and not such a friendly face. The other Andrew just looks so young for a guy who works so long and hard.

My favorite carnitas at the moment is at Carnitas Michoacan on North Broadway in Lincoln Heights. But I understand Taqueria Sanchez in Culver City does nice carnitas.
2008-08-18 11:39:09
46.   mintxcore
My favorite carnitas was at Sabor A Mexico in Culver City. Alas, it has moved recently and I haven't been since.

Tacomiendo is amazing all around, but I've only had their carnitas mixed with their carne asada, so I can't give a full report...

Responding to Trainwreck in the last thread (181).

I just got the first two episodes of the upcoming season of Entourage today, and my immediate reaction was excitment in realizing that I would someday get Flight of the Conchords season-two episodes on the early side.

I am glad to have been at the picnic to meet abunch of the other DT posters! The softball game was friendly, yet competitive, especially the second game. We eventually mastered how to play that tree. I enjoyed playing SS/3B, though I played in fear of falling into one of the holes and destroying my ankle. Hope everyone enjoyed the pictures - I was remarking how many folks did not look anything close to what I imagined them.

In Boston or St. Louis, you would have showed up on time for the whiffle ball game.

And you wouldn't have left early either.

And you would be a much better human being to boot. And far less shallow.

Lindblom is doing better then how Adkins and Sexton did last year in Low A.

Since Adkins and Sexton are not doing so hot this year, we can still be a bit optimistic about Lindblom. I also think his scouting profies projects better overall stuff for Lindblom, depending on whether he can maintain it over the whole game.

Hot-hitting DeJesus hoping for call-up

>> DeJesus has been the Suns' hottest hitter in August. In his last 11 games, he has 16 hits in 42 at-bats (.381) and leads the team in runs (11), RBI (7), home runs (2) and hits during that time. The surge has hiked DeJesus' batting average to .310, ranking him among the league's top 15 hitters. <<

## DeJesus has adjusted his batting stance slightly and moved closer to the plate, enabling him to drive more balls into left field, including the single and double he had in Saturday's game. ##

Hmmmm...

Dejesus post all star break:

317/392/490 11XBHs 104ABs

If the stance is actually aiding him in hitting the ball with more authority, it looks like we can get a little bit excited about him.

51s drop back to .500 with fifth straight loss

>> Not even reinforcements from their parent club Saturday night could prevent the 51s from skidding back to .500.

Dodgers outfielders Andruw Jones and Delwyn Young, serving injury-rehabilitation stints, combined to go 0-for-5, and Las Vegas' late rally fell short in its 5-4 Pacific Coast League loss to the Fresno Grizzlies in Fresno, Calif. <<

## Luis Maza led off the fourth with the 51s' first hit, a triple, and scored when Jones, on the 15-day disabled list with a sore left knee, grounded into a double play. ##

I was so jazzed at the end of Friday's that I called Southwest Airlines and got early A.M. flight times from Reno to LAX.

And then I asked the fare.

$149.00

Roundtrip or one-way, I asked, already knowing the answer.

Read the TJ Simers story over the weekend and am surprised that Kent got so exercised about Scully's comments and of course all of the other comments going crazy about Kent in the blogosophere.

As TJ, Torre, and Andre Ethier Kemp have all said over the past few weeks a bat like Manny's helps everyone in the lineup. It is that simple. Ethier said yesterday in a radio interview, that everyone above Manny in the lineup is seeing better pitches for a whole host of reasons.
More than anything else Kent seems to be a player who needs to play with a chip on his shoulder, so if Manny, the media and Scully have made that chip bigger so much the better.

93 I'm 31 and like Sinatra. I also like Dean Martin, Buddy Holly and Fats Domino from that era, although I am more partial to the 60s as my favorite music decade.

"Chanson D'Amour" on Are You Being Served? is another really good example of a show elevating a song.

102 - I do feel the Manny influence can be overstated, which is why I feel a little bad for Kent even though ... he's Kent.

Kent was a streak hitter long before Manny arrived. Let's see if the effect lasts longer than two weeks before we make definite pronouncements on it.

It's like Kent said - who's responsible for making Manny a .400 hitter? The answer might be nothing more than the baseball gods.

103 Don't get me wrong I'm sure that some younger people dig Sinatra but I think it's more the exception than the rule. The 60's do rock! the Stones, Beatles, Doors, Hendrix, Cream the list goes on and on.

106 - But do you need to be a Sinatra buff to recognize his voice? Pretty distinctive. It's not like I was around during that song's heyday.

Of course, I couldn't identify 10 new artists today, so I've got my own problems.

Nathan Eovaldi is an exciting prospect; a big, 18-year-old Texas fireballer who's dominating the GCL so far in limited appearances.

107 All those ballady 50's singers kind of blur my auditory recognition, it's like the industry was over saturated with them (thank you rock 'n roll). Good comparison because I couldn't name 10 current artists by listening either. Most of them have the whiny "punk/emo" voice or just scream. I need to brush up on my scream distinction to recognize any hard rock act out today.

I don't know. Sinatra doesn't blur with anyone in my mind.

110 I guess the best way to describe it would be like when the adults talk on the old Peanuts cartoons. I start to hear where the music is going and my ears say "oh no not one of these songs again". Anyhow Nick Swardson does a pretty good job of poking fun at older music in one of his stand-up routines, you can find it on youtube but it's definitely not SFW.

As I tell all my classes there has been no great music since Jim Morrison died.

However there is one question back to me that will cause you serious problems in my class. Guess what that question is?

Sinatra, Cash, Presley and Dylan are as distinct as voices can get. You may or may not like all of them, but most people, I would think, would recognize these voices. You can throw Jagger, Hendrix, Joplin and McCartney in there from that time, but I think the first four for sure.

109 Among today's acts, I think Linkin' Park and Coldplay are most recognizable to me. I guess that guy from Nickelback has a very distinct voice, but I can't stand them.

113 Anyone who rhymes fire with fire not once, but twice, in one chorus loses some points.

I don't think you will have to wait a year. I think everyone had a good time other then the double loser wiffle ball team, and it should be very easy to organize again since Bhsportsguy did most of the heavy lifting. After his 10th trip to the car to pack away everything he brought he was heard to state that he'd do this once a week because he likes being around people so much who disagree with him whenever he sides with "the man".

122 I meant more from that era and someone who is more popular than just a few good songs. I mean Macy Gray qualifies otherwise.

That is the question.

My answer, "Here is quarter, call your mother, and let her know things are not working out"

Actually most Physics majors see music as math.
