Sunny afternoon baseball (or not)

Oh, what we wouldn't give to unshackle ourselves from our desk and head to a purveyor of tasty beverages to enjoy this afternoon's game between the Jays and Royals. Sadly, we've left our transistor radio at home, and will likely have to settle for sniffer toner cartridges and tracking the game on GameDay.

That is, supposing that the game actually gets played. The Weather Channel says it is raining in KC at the moment, with thunder storms on their way this afternoon. Perhaps Thor the God of Thunder feels much the same way we do about a Brian Burres start, and is conspiring to keep him off the field.

And if that is indeed the case, then we say: Have at it, Thorsy.

The purveyor of tasty beverages would have to subscribe to whatever that "Extra Innings Preview" channel is.

Tao of Stieb said...

Oh believe me, my tasty beverage joint is fully equipped with Extra Innings.

That's why it is my place for tasties.

Layth said...

If the games get's canceled does this mean we lose the series? I hate to be the one that asks this but I know we are all thinking "Hey does this rain fuck with our streak"

Darren Priest said...

The best we could do is split, so I guess the streak is fucked anyways...unless there's a glorious no loss streak still in play.

Ron Logel said...

Speaking of unrelated topics, and because I'm too lazy to look it up myself, with all this talk of 2010 being the year of the Jays and with Beeston saying money will be available if he sees a need to spend it, who are some of the more useful free agents hitting the market after this season?

Layth said...

Some notable FA's

-Carlos Delgado(NY Mets)
-Marco Scutaro (Tor)
-Adrian Beltre (Seattle)
-Joe Crede (Twins)
-Matt Holliday (Oakland)
-Jason Bay (Boston)
-Rick Ankiel (STL)
-Brian Giles (Padres)
-Jermaine Dye (White Sox)
-Hank Blalock (Texas)

-Erik Bedard (Seattle)
-Justin Duchscherer (Oakland)
-Rich Harden (Cubs)
-Tim Hudson(team option - Braves)
-John Lackey (Angels)
-Cliff Lee (Indians)
-Brett Myers (Phillies)
-Brad Penny (Red Sox)
-Jarrod Washburn (Seattle)
-Kevin Gregg (Cubs)

It would be awesome to see Harden come over but the injuries are always there. Brett Myers might be of some intrigue but Canadian beer might be bad for him.

Don't worry Jays fans ,Boston will take all available good players BECAUSE we will win another series,y'all! 2010 is a joke of a dream for all y'all because the Sox, Yanks, shitty little Rays shall win and the Os will be much better will your injured pitchers will not do shit. Great game today that the Jays will lose . It's terrible about the first series loss. By the way, it won't be the last because you will suck all year. Good luck at the bottom I'll send all y'all World Series pictures for the 2009 Red Sox championship!Tao of Sleaze, indeed........

Douche alert!

Tao of Stieb said...

Actually, we kinda like the Tao of Sleaze moniker. It makes us want to start knocking back some desk-drawer bourbon and pinch one of the office girls on the bum.

(Note to self: Too much Mad Men.)

Darren Priest said...

I agree, Tao, this guy is a live wire and your site, while easily one of the best-written, needs more smack in the comments section. Just watch that hit counter climb!

Darren Priest said...

Listening to Wilner now and I am kinda getting's hard not to wonder what if...we had a solid rotation.

Look out, everybody, the pudgy Canadian is getting mad! His fleshy fists are all clenched up in rage!

I apologize if this was already answered earlier in the week, but where is Parrish? He was servicible last year, no?

Bruno Von Rottweiler said...

Parrish was signed and released by the Orioles. JP should buy a brain cell and pick him up again. NOW! Someone should mention that to Wilner on his Jays Talk segment! Or on his blog......

Burres has been sent to AAA. Whew! That was a looooong two games.

Anonymous said...

Boston got their lunch handed to them tonight. That and Burres being sent down are a couple of silver linings to end the day with.

Navin Vaswani (@eyebleaf) said...

Tao of Sleaze is pretty good. Fucking Nation.

Go Jays. I'll take a 15-9 April any day of the week.

Anonymous said...

Tao of Sleaze, the Nation is still in first! We got blown out but y'all lost a bad one yeasterday. How many DPS? 6 Double Penetrations!!?? I knew the team was gay but not that gay. We take the next two from Tampa and you will get swept by the Os. They will murder Halladay, Purcey(a better Burres) and Richmond(he's due to fall apart any day now like Tallet). Meanwhile, gaston will put in some scrub like Bautista or Millah(sic, former Red Sox champion and now Blue Jay loser).By the way, thanks for keeping the Nation in first guys. I want to thank you for your eventual freefall from any point of contention. We need plankton to feast on, on our road to World Series 3 in 5 years!

^^ you mean World Series 3 in 90+ years, don't you?

Anonymous said...

Ack, you sound like an old wimpy Yankee fan. In this world , we won in 04 and 07 notin 92,93. That whole 1918 shit is stale, even Yankee fans have dropped that old act. The Jays haven't EVEN been in contention since 93! We appeared tons of times since then , so stop it right there. Tao of Sleaze, I love your site , it's the best Jays site. Stoeten that fucking Moron is an absolute joke, he doesn't know what the hell he's talking about. Parkes is something else too.He's not as conceited as Stoeten so he comes across a little better even though he too, is a total tool like Stoeten. I can't comment on Berg or Mao because the other two blowhards take all the glory and are complete fools to boot. Tao, at least you a good writer and have intelligent people post. At Drunken Jays, there are a bunch of losers posting. They make Jays fans look bad, though that isn't very hard these days!LOL

Darren Priest said...

I don't think the Orioles will murder Halladay.

Sorry, that's the best retort I can come up with right now. I fail.

Anonymous said...

Darren, they will. Hallday has been so-so at home this year. He not been nails this year at all. Just saying. And the Os can rake. Guthrie is a good pitcher and Uehara the Japanese guy is OK, so the Jays are not much better because Richmond is better than the Japanese guy...for now. Richmond will suck too just give him time. Those Blue Bird Banter Guys are smart,too and funny unlike the Drunken Jays fans. That was a cool retort Darren.At the Drunken Jays, they would be throwing out Fucktard every ten seconds. At least, you lot are witty and funny.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real money.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
