Face the Music

Sunday’s loss with Kershaw on the mound has proved to be somewhat of a pivotal event. With the Giants struggling, it seemed that the Dodgers had replaced their probable, almost certain future of finishing well out of contention with a glimmer of hope. Alas, that hope did not last long. Monday’s ugly loss against the mighty Phillies sealed their fate. The Dodgers must now Face the Music… they are officially toast. Jon Weisman had some (Dodger) thoughts about this.

On the McCourt front, Steve Dilbeck writes about how Frank can’t wait to start another lawsuit. What a piece of work!

Since music is the topic of the day, I would like to share the latest song by dodgereric, an ode to Frank and Ned. The song is based on “Evil and Dangerous Men”, written and performed by a friend of mine, actor and singer/songwriter Rick Moses. Some of you may remember him from the soap opera General Hospital, where he played the hitman “Hutch” who was hired to kill Luke and Laura.

Hapless and Pathetic Men
You can stare into the eyes of ineptness,
And swear that your ears hear an echo.
You can try to make trades under stress,
Out-smarted by a gecko
You can acquire the world’s greatest ballclub
And never spend a plugged nickel.
Fans trade your tickets on StubHub,
And your wife sticks you in a pickle.

Hapless and Pathetic men,
They don’t get it.
Hapless and Pathetic men, half of a half-wit.

Ned calls and the GMs want to answer,
They all smell the blood.
As a GM he makes a good dancer,
Man, that cat’s a dud.
He can’t sign good FAs
He cries he gots no money.
Good players he can’t appraise,
He just steps in Schidt, sonny.

Hapless and Pathetic men,
They don’t get it.
Hapless and Pathetic men, half of a half-wit.
Hapless and Pathetic men,
They don’t get it.
Hapless and Pathetic men, half of a half-wit.

(Instrumental interlude)

The owner and Ned have much in common
As they drive our team in the drink,
For the team has gone from the good to the bad
Frank’s gone from “bad” to “you stink”.
He owes money he cannot pay back
The Feds are checking his books,
For deception he has quite a knack
Lock him up with other crooks.

Hapless and Pathetic men,
They don’t get it.
Hapless and Pathetic men, half of a half-wit.
Hapless and Pathetic men,
They don’t get it.
Hapless and Pathetic men, half of a half-wit.
So close…
