No more chapters of
100 Things Dodger Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die ...

Well, that's it! The copy for my book has been sent to the publisher.

*Except for some post-deadline words following the conclusion of the 2008 season.

I'd tell you to keep your eye out for more updates, but trust me, you won't be able to miss 'em.

Thanks to everyone for their support. Hopefully, I'll be seeing a lot less of the other side of midnight 1 a.m. for a while ...

"When Shanahan left me, he went to Denver. He was there for about four or five years as an assistant and they fired him for insubordination," Davis said. "Dan Reeves and he had a big battle. He went to the 49ers and he learned their style of football and when Dan Reeves failed in Denver, the first guy they had was Wade Phillips, I think, then he brought Shanahan back. And Shanahan had success. But Shanahan has an asterisk next to those two Super Bowls, because they were caught cheating."*

Hilarious. Al Davis still takes pot shots at Shanahan.

Awesome news Jon. I look forward to reserving mine wherever needed--hopefully a local bookshop, but if Amazon I must, Amazon I must.

Congrats on finishing book Jon. And thanks again for the sight I can't keep from coming back to.

Here's a question for anyone still awake: Anyone know of a bar (I know I may be dreaming here) where they'll be playing the game on a big screen, but running audio from Vin on the radio (I guess Steiner and Monday are doing innings 4-6). I don't got no cable, else I'd do it myself. Got the day off from work and everything. Pretty excited.

Just think about what our lineup is if Raffy gets hot, though I'd like to see him in the seven or eight spot until he does. Also looking forward to Nomar and Kent as pinch hitters. Both have always struck me as guys who live for the moment (Nomar more than Kent).
Someone made the great argument about all these guys playing for contracts. Manny, Raffy, Kent, Nomar, Lowe, Saito, Berroa and Ozuna (I'm sure I'm missing someone, oh, Maddux) all need to bank it big. And I think Nomar and Kent proving they can come off the bench and deliver a big hit is key to their next contracts. I'm not saying all guys perform well in these situations, but some definately do, and we got a lot, so the percentages are in our favor on that front.

Anyway, some slightly drunken thoughts from a mostly lurker

Go Dodgers. Think Blue. Dream Blue.

For those "Wait Wait" fans curious about the potential TV deal, Adam Felber wrote a blog post about it a week or so ago:

Anyone know of a bar (I know I may be dreaming here) where they'll be playing the game on a big screen, but running audio from Vin on the radio

That's a tough find. I would recommend bringing a transistor radio to a bar, but the audio is likely to be out of sync with the video by a few seconds.

It looks like Dick Stockton, Tony Gwynn*, and Ron Darling are in your future.

*Speaking of Gwynn, are there other D-1 college coaches that spend as much time announcing as Gwynn? I mean, more power to him, and I like him as an announcer, but you'd think he would spend more time building the baseball program.

Sometimes the HD feeds are delayed also. Maybe it's time I pick up a transistor anyway. Always wanting one at the stadium. Speaking of which:

Why doesn't Dodger Stadium pump in a radio feed that features Vin throughout the whole game? They play it in the bathrooms. I also think his new contract should force TBS, FOX or whoever else has playoff games to pay Vin top dollar to call them. I feel like the Dodgers WE% drops 5-10% when I don't here Scully.

2008-09-30 23:38:57
29.   Eric Stephen
That's not a bad idea, at least on the concourse. The Padres do that at Petco Park; you can hear the radio broadcast throughout the concourse, but it's not intrusive into the seats at all.

I would say its a net positive in SD, but Ted Leitner is prominently featured so its a huge negative.

I was going to post this tomorrow in a new thread, but since someone asked:

All three Barney's Beanerys will be hosting viewing parties for the games with KABC-790. There will be food and drink specials, former
Dodger players, KABC radio hosts and newscasters, and, of course, the Dodgers playing on tvs all over the restaurant.

Wednesday (10/1)
3:30 - 5:30
West Hollywood - Kenny Landreaux
Pasadena - Bobby Castillo
Santa Monica - Rudy Law

2008-09-30 23:43:30
31.   dodgerstang
I was just thinking something you could pick up with a transistor that wouldn't switch over to Charlie "Excitement at all the Wrong Times" Steiner and Rick "Monday" Monday after three. But a feed actually playing while I wait in line would be great. Sometimes I just lurk after a tinkle for a few extra moments of Vin.

Dodgerstang, it pays to know people!

Mmmm, Dodgers Tang. :)

2008-09-30 23:48:26
33.   dodgerstang
Thanks Jon. I think I made a little note in my head never to set foot in a Barney's Beanery again, but that does sound exactly right, except for the meatheads that will probably be there. How many times do I have to hear someone say "Why isn't Juan Pierre in the game" (and always calling him by his first and last name) when Kemp swings and misses. But we're all Dodger fans

Indians manager Eric Wedge appears to be in favor of moving Jhonny Peralta to third and playing Asdrubal Cabrera at shortstop next year.

Looks like Casey Blake is going to need a new love.

If anyone has ever told you that getting multiples of 3 hours of sleep is better than non-multiples (i.e. 3 hours is better than 10 hours) - they are dead wrong.

Says the guy who just got 3 hours of sleep so that he can watch the game tonight instead of being stuck on a plane for the whole thing.

2008-10-01 01:14:44

Who in the hell told you that 3 hours is better than 10?
2008-10-01 01:21:08

42 You know, it might not be that crazy. Once I finally got up I actually feel pretty well-rested. See you in 10 hours!

Okay, so Michael Cera was on Conan and was not funny at all.

But I still have faith. He will break out and become a big star.

2008-10-01 02:49:14
46.   overkill94
43 Eh, it's one of those random things someone claims that they read a study on or something. 10 hours being better than 3 is probably a bit extreme, but I think the point is that 6 hours is better than 8 due to the sleep cycles being finished or something.

Still going strong right now, but I'm guessing once I catch my connecting flight I'll be passing out.

2008-10-01 02:55:33
47.   trainwreck
I have not flied a lot since I was an infant, but I cannot sleep on planes at all.

So I say get drunk and pull an all nighter, because you are just going to want to get drunk when you land anyways.

Really, really great news, Jon!

It's 7 am and we're gonna leave for Philly in a few hours. Around 1 am the rain, thunder, and lightning was biblical here in Manhattan. I like to think it was the universe's way of announcing playoff baseball has arrived. Or telling me not to go to Philly 'cause the game will be postponed.

Either way, I tossed around in my bed all night 'cause I was so excited for today!

There's supposed to be a chance of a thunderstorm in Philadelphia around 4 pm, but that's it.

Should be in the mid 50s and dry in Chicago for the Dodgers-Cubs.

And it will be a warm night in Anaheim for the Angels-Red Sox.

I'm going to be watching the game tonight at my local watering hole. Unfortunately, Cubs fans are spawned from the same virus, Bandwagonus obnoxicium, as Red Sox fans. So I'm sure I'll be outnumbered tonight.

But it doesn't matter. I stood tall in the green horde of vile Celtic fans when the Lakers gagged back in June, so I'm used to being outnumbered. I'll be representing Dodger blue tonight.

Congratulations, Jon!

I'm trying to figure out how you had time to do this. You have 3 kids, including a baby. You have a real job. You devote hours to the site. You watch (or even attend) every game, plus a ton of TV (for your real job and for pleasure). And somehow you managed to write a book in a very short period of time.

Are you on the metric system? Do you have 100-hour days? Or are there several of you?

I'm tired just thinking about everything you manage to pack into a day.

Again, congratulations on finishing the book. I look forward to reading it.

Torre: No long hair. No music in clubhouse.

Manny: Long hair. Music in clubhouse.

Torre and Bowa: We are all having more fun in the new, lighter atmosphere that Many gives us.

If the Dodgers don't re-sign Manny, has Torre and Bowa learned enough, have old dogs learned new tricks, will the Dodgers new, improved environment continue into 2009?

Will the ghost of Manny, the absence of Kent, and 2008's experience be the fertilizer needed for the kids to take the Dodgers to a championship next year?

Should Hu instead of Osuna be getting playoff experience?

Will Loney, Kemp, Martin, Ethier, DeWitt, Abreu, DeJesus, Young, Hu, McDonald, Kershaw, Billingsley, Broxton, Miller, Elbert, Lambo all be together this winter working out at Athletes' Performance Institute in Arizona?

Something along these lines is the only reason I've come up with for why Sabean still has a job. Fans can't necessarily blame GMs for all transactions, in that at least some may have been the result of owner involvement.

I see eight Dodger hitters with their bats a-blazin'

I heard my mama cry
I heard her pray the night Chicago's bullpen died

You west-coasters are so lucky, getting to take half-days at work today. I have to put in a full day before I get to knock off and watch the game.

Stupid time difference.

Bob, you know that's like my bat signal, right? The Pete Arbogast blog looks like a transcription of an Al Davis press conference.

Speaking of which, I think the Raiders should sell official Al Davis merchandise. Who wouldn't want a classic Al jumpsuit or maybe the stylish 70s sweater he rocked yesterday?

I couldn't sleep last night because I was so nervous. Aaah!

If it is any consolation, I did get in at 7:30 and am not taking a lunch. Unless I'm supposed to work 15-hour days, today ain't no halfie! :)

94 I understand exactly how good Kuroda is, I've watched 20+ of his starts this year. Is it heads or tails? He's either lights out or batting practice, it's the Jeckyl and Hyde syndrome at it's finest. At the very least, control is rarely an issue with him but I'm still really nervous about game 3.

101 Would the jumpsuit come with a pocketful of gibberish, or is that extra?

The Padres are pursuing a grievance against Khalil Greene for punching a storage cabinet and injuring himself.

McDonald replaces Troncoso on playoff roster. New post coming up.

102 - I couldn't sleep last night, either. But it wasn't because I was nervous.

Stupid insomnia.

They should, I don't see why teams should pay players for being stupid. It is bad enough they have to pay them when they are lousy.

110 Awesome. If it were only Park.

Man I bet they're glad they didn't sign Khalil to a longer deal during last offseason.

110 Whoa. I wonder what Proctor is thinking about at this point. That's cool though. Shows a lot of faith in a young 'un.

Maybe the Rockies can similarly get some coin back from Tulo.

Congrats Jon! That's an amazing accomplishment.

Totally have Christmas Morning excitement. We're watching the game at my office and the head of the company is a HUGE Cubs fan. So hopefully the Dodgers win, and this isn't my last week at my present place of employment. That said-- I've got my Dodgers gear!

OT, but a bit of gallows humor maybe good for a chuckle...

A joke making the rounds in SEC country:

FEMA is interested in hiring Tennessee's Phil Fulmer because he has shown the ability to evacuate 106,000 people from a stadium in a consistent and orderly fashion.

Fulmey's doing a great job.

119 Meanwhile, longtime UT offensive coordinator David Cutcliffe has perennial ACC doormat Duke at 3-1. Unlikely to last, but I think Duke actually has gotten a few votes in the polls.

Not that this has beeen noticed or anything.

Duke has played all 4 of its games thus far at home.
