    Derek Lowe en fuego

    DENVER -- How hot are the Dodgers?
    They are so hot that, on Wednesday night, one of their best players was on fire.
    “Literally,” Derek Lowe said.
    For all the silliness they survived Thursday afternoon, winning, 19-11, nothing compared to the incident 18 hours earlier, when Lowe accidentally set his pants ablaze in the dugout.
    “Craziest thing I’ve ever seen,” Manager Grady Little said.
    In the top of the fifth inning, Lowe was standing in the corner of the dugout preparing to step into the on-deck circle.
    Next to his right leg was a large space heater.
    Lowe was so intent on watching the game that he didn’t feel the heat or smell the smoke.
    Then teammate Matt Kemp saw his polyester pants leg burning, and cried out.
    “He said, ‘Dude, you’re on fire,’ ” Lowe recalled.
    At first, Lowe thought he was just being complimented on his pitching.
    “Then he said, ‘Literally,’ ” Lowe said.
    Lowe jumped away from the heater and the flames subsided, but not before the fire had burned holes in his pants and socks.
    With his teammates in stitches, Lowe ran into the tunnel and changed into a new pair of pants that Mitch Poole, the Dodger clubhouse manager, had rushed into action.
    Poole was not exactly surprised.
    Believe it or not, this was the second time a Dodger had caught fire from a space heater. Last season, it happened to pitching coach Jim Colborn.

    Think it might be time to invest in some new sort of heating device for the dugout?

    Stay hot, Derek

    I've heard of a hot foot before but this is ridiculous.

    Isn't this some sort of biblical phrophsy or something....

    "and when the devil team in blue shall be consumed by fire the team in red shall rise and inflict great wrath apon those who do evil in my sight".

    Or something like that. Maybe I heard it on Baseball Bunch.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
