Mr. El Lay

Not for this Guy apparently. He seems to have it all figured out. Still worth over $7 billion after all the great things he has done in and for this city, Patrick Soon-Shiong looks to make his name known in this town. If this goes down he will own at least a piece of each LA team except Los Doyers but will be business partners with with primary shareholder. AND he wants to build a football stadium! This might be too good to be true. Regardless of how prominently or poorly this whole thing shakes out for Soon-Shiong, his name will most certainly be known.

You’d never hear Vin Scully say something like this. Another classless act from a #BAT. #WhatDoYouExpect

The Bay Area Steroid Era

During the masterpiece that was Vin Scully’s broadcast of Monday night’s Giants/Dodgers game he mentioned an article written about the historic rivalry. What was the reason for the recent timid trend? No villains was the answer. Which I must admit is true. There are more Giant players I respect on today’s roster then in any year past. Thank goodness for drug testing.

That’s why there are no villains. These cheaters will be outed. It is a foregone conclusion that Melky Cabrera will either suck or be lose 100 more games when he comes back next season. What’s going on up there? If you walk around left field at AT&T do you trip on used needles? Is steroids just another pathetic attempt to be better than Oakland at something?

Stay off the dope, Frisco.

Dumb-Ass Nationals

You ever feel like you can see a mistake as it is happening? What are the Nationals thinking? The idea that sitting the Stupendous Strasburg will somehow add longevity to his career or keep him off the DL is completely unfounded and seems to have been pulled out of a hat. Too bad the hat was labeled “Ways to make the NL East lead disappear.” While there is no evidence to suggest that this would be beneficial, I get the logic. But I don’t think I am capable of comprehending why, even though they announced their plans months ago, they made no plans or preparations for Stras’ approach of the cutoff point. It was like 160 innings snuck up on them or something. They really didn’t think of skipping a start or maybe limiting his pitch count more? Dumb-Ass Nationals.

This is the general consensus from what I can tell. But to all the LA Haters out there (Too many to tag but you know who you are): We REAL LA Fans don’t care that you decided to be happy for the Kings after your team got eliminated. Just like we never cared that you sneered at every trophy Kobe raised to the sky in Staples Center. You are happy for the Kings won because it’s their first one. But it is the first of many. We will see how pleasant your reaction is next year when the Kings do it again! And Yes, I am a bandwagonner.

The Pittsburgh Pirates are in1st Place

Yeah, I know. Even though they are only tied aaaaand even though it’s only the NL Central aaaaand its still early in June, it still feels cool to say.

The Lakers Season

Am I the only one who thinks the Lakers overachieved this year? First setback, oh I don’t know, losing the best coach in NBA history for instance? Losing a leader like Phil Jackson would make any team regress.

Then, the Paul-Block. The magnitude of this trade veto cannot be overstated. The Lakers had a dynasty ripped from their grasp which then created a ripple effect.

This ripple led to the loss of our athleticism. Besides the fact that it reverted the already immature Odom into a snivelling child, don’t you think we would have held on to Shannon Brown? The Lakers were on an uphill battle from the start.

With the new coach, new system, and new bench with absolutely no time to prepare for the condensed schedule it is a wonder the Lakers had any success at all. Not to mention throwing in a new point guard basically off a bus mid-season which put even more pressure on the team as they scrambled to adjust.

When it was all said and done they finished one game better that they did the previous season and were also one game better than their hallway rivals the Clippers. Calm down Laker fans. It could have been worse.

Well, it’s not all beer and skittles..
Vin Scully - Giants @ Dodgers - 5/9/12
An LA Perspective

First of all, The LA Galaxy are the reigning MLS champs. Don’t forget. USC will be preseason ranked in the top three if not #1 while the Pac-12 will be down in football and UCLA basketball is bringing in potentially the best recruiting class in 2013. The NCAA is set. The LA Kings not only dominated the number one seed in the West but took Game 1 on the road in St. Louis. And now I am officially hooked on playoff Hockey. THE LAKERS! YES! THE LAKERS look like the toughest matchup in the West. I can’t wait to see Kobe vs. LeBron in the finals. Last but certainly not least..’Dem Bums. Yes Los Doyers de Los Angeles are muy peligroso! Now with a new owner and new face the boys in blue are red hot! After sweeping the best team in the NL the Nat’ls, the Dodgers are now the scariest team in the league. Be prepared to see the LA dominance continue but don’t worry, plenty of room on the bandwagon.

Well baseball season is finally under way. With a new face of the Los Angeles Dodgers get used to seeing us on top in the NL West.
