Meet BigDog. Who needs Manny when those braniacs in Waltham can invent things like this?
SF raised a good question: can it play the carom?
Perilously close to the lip of the uncanny valley.

The best thing is it doesn’t have a soul. So no soul-taking/selling will be involved.
That thing is so creepy, especially the part when the guy kicks it. Who the f*ck kicks a defenseless animatronic psuedo-dog?
And can you imagine the look of terror on the guy inside the Green Monster when that thing comes in to take a leak between innings?
BigDog? Sounds closer to Mo Vaughn’s replacement.
And that thing is definitely what my nightmares are made of. Yikes.
sounds more like a giant bumblebee
yeah fen, i may sleep with the light on tonight
Run, Luke! The AT-ATs are coming!
That angry buzzing two-stroke motor gets to me as well.. sounds like a hornet from hell… “Or what? You’ll release the dogs? Or the bees? Or the dogs with bees in their mouths and when they bark they shoot bees at you?”
Okay, that’s enough Homerisms from me for the day.
aw crap, I meant Imperial Walkers. Or maybe a daggit.
For all of its innovations, it still goes as fast as Manny.
Manny tumbled and rolled around on top of just one baseball in the last Angels series. I don’t think he could pass the piles of cinder blocks test. Give that thing a uniform.
Creepiest thing I’ve seen in a while. Especially the kicking part. One day, it will supplant bears as the No. 1 threat to freedom.

Bears… beets… battlestargallactica.
Thread jack – Teixiera to the Angels for Kotchmann. Yowsers.
I had just heard an ESPN radio-reported-rumor that Boston and Atlanta were talking about Manny for Tex after which Manny was to be sent to a third place for top prospects, but I guess that either fell through or was never on in the first place.
Teixera to LAA???? You’ve got to be freaking kidding me. Hate that team.
Teixiera for Kotchman? That’s the last goddamn thing the Angels needed to do: get better.
I’m gunna puke.
Teixiera now has the highest OPS+ on that Angels team. Howie Kendrick has 125 and Vlad is at 121.
This is some bullshit.
