Back at Dodger Stadium!!

The first game of the year is tonight, and everyone’s awaiting your arrival here.

The lineup looks awfully close to what we’ll see on Opening Day:

Furcal, SS

Hudson, 2B

Manny, LF

Ethier, RF

Martin, C

Loney, 1B

Kemp, CF

Blake, P

Wolf, P

We’ll be on KCAL for the game tonight and then after, switch to PRIME TICKET for a special Dodgers Insider on Manny Ramirez at 10:30. It’ll be everything about the guy, from the time he arrived through his return to the club at Camelback Ranch!

    Hello everyone, I hope all is well in Dodgerland…Now it is time to get serious…Opening day is just about here…Kind of wish we were not facing Peavy, he kills us!!!!

    Lets focus on the positives and not the negatives…we are tied for 1st place and ready to roll!!!!

    I really wish we could get Doc Halladay….we will win the division but our staff is not built for October….not yet 2 more years and Kershaw and Bills really mature we will have 2 bonfide aces….

    Lets go Dodgers kick the Angels butt!!!!

    Your a card. You say lets focus on postitive and then you question the pitching. This is what we got.
    Let’s go. Everybody does their job – we’ll be fine.
    Go LA

    .
    Enjoy the game everybody!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Pa, I beg to differ, I am not belittling the staff just stating the obvious that we do not have an ACE and have not in many years…..We have seen 2 out of the last 3 years, we make the playoffs and we do not have an ace to deliver…If we could get a Doc Halladay it would make us bonafide WS contenders. In my mind it is not enough to just get there, we need to be able to win it!!!

    NOw that being said I feel confident that we will win the NL West!!!!

    Hello My ITD Friends, hope you all had a great day!!!
    From the earlier thread, North, great post. I hope PileOPhew sees it.

  7. jhallwally

    Hey Ram!!! Good to see you. Not much, just looking forward to some Dodger baseball. How about you?

  8. jhallwally

    Gosh its great to hear Vin.
    As an aside Ram, the Rams were my favorite team back in the lat 60’s and early 70’s. I loved the pristine blue and white uniforms, the Fearsome Foursome, Roman Gabriel to Jack Snow, Maxie Vaughn, and Ritchie Pettibone. I still hate the freaking Vikings and Joe Kapp.

  9. ramslover

    Me too Wally…I have loved the Dodgers, lakers and Rams since 70 or 71….

    I love this lineup, Kemp batting 7th and Blake 8th…no easy outs!!!

  10. nellyjune

    Good Evening ITD readers and writers!!!!

    jhall- I thought exactly the same thing my friend – LOL!!!!!

  11. trublu4ever

    I lot of people are double posting because it seems to take forever for it to publish. It’s good to see all of you.

  12. jhallwally

    Nelly, how are you my friend? How’s your family, classroom, and your son’s pitching. Also, the baseball school.

  13. jhallwally

    I’m excited about our infield defense this season. Loney, Hudson, Ferk, and Blake. Should be solid. Also, Kemp in center, with Ethier in right from the outset should be stellar. Manny is average at best, but at least his bat makes up for some shortcomings in left. Unlike YouKnowWho!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. jhallwally

    Good defense makes pitching so much better and easier. Thank you God that Kent and Nomore are gone. It is so refreshing not having to deal with the egos and inferior play.

  15. jhallwally

    Probably Spit, but JoJo was/is a sucker for the PVL attitude. Much to the detriment of the young guys.

  16. jhallwally

    Probably Spit, but JoJo is/was a sucker for the PVL attitude. More times than not, to the detriment of the young, and more talented players.

  17. nellyjune

    LMAO!!!! I know jhall, I know – too funny 🙂 You called it, but I didn’t think it would happen so quick -LOL!!!!

  18. nellyjune

    Ramslover – #16 is the guy who hit the triple and drove in a run. His birthday is next week if you want to know any personal details 🙂

  19. shad78

    I’m fine and always glad to see the game on Kcal with Vinny and no Pierre starting. I can’t wait until the regular season so my fantasy baseball team can get going.

  20. nellyjune

    Vin loves telling the story about Casey Blake and his athletic family. Even when he played us when he was an Indian, he would love to tell those stories about him. Vin is just awesome!!!

  21. nellyjune

    jhall-I am going after Grady in my draft for my fantasy team. I actually put him first and Andre second. I figure Andre I can get in the second round. Grady is at the top of the list. Then of course Matt is in there too. I also have Peralta for shortstop again with Raffy a second choice.

  22. Dodger4life

    Good evening ITD Dodgerfaithful, I just walked in the door and checked the box score we are ahead. Awesome!!!
    .
    BRING THE RING !!!!
    .
    LETS GO DODGERS, LETS GO!!!!!

  23. shad78

    I have Sizemore, Granderson, Victorino my starting OF’s only because I missed the first 5th rounds and there stupid live draft took me forever to loaded. If I was there I would never had the last 2.

  24. oldbrooklynfan

    I hope MLB.TV corrects this problem before the real games start.
    I got it back with O.Dawg at bat.

  25. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    Good evening, all!!!! I had trouble with the video, too, so I didn’t see how we got the 4th run. This game does have the feel of a regular season game but the players wearing numbers normally worn by wide recievers belie that notion…Opening Day is a 2nd Christmas to a baseball fan.

  26. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    Has anyone else been having identity crisis problems?? mlb has been playing random selection with my sign on again so I’ve had to resign on and off to get my familiar handle.

  27. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    Utah’s getting warmer, nelly, except for yesterday when we got Mother Nature’s April Fool’s joke, namely, snow. Other than that, pretty good.

  28. nellyjune

    I, personally, am glad is pitching for the Angels and not the Rockies. He’s our hometown boy – yeah!!!!

  29. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    ……..Briefly. With a late start this year, I’m sure he could use more work.

  30. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    Nice to see some pitching tonight after all the arena baseball we’ve been seeing this week.

  31. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    Lots of good stuff tonight. Brox still isn’t sharp yet but that should come, hopefully, soon. I know, it’s only ST, but I like it, love it, yes, I do!!!!

  32. enchantedbeaver

    Judging from the boxscore and you’re comments, it looks like it was a solid game from start to finish for our boys.

    I love Hudson’s glove, but unless he starts hitting infront of Manny I still think he should be dropped to 8th in the order. I’d give him until the end of April, then if he still isn’t hitting, make the switch. If not Dre #2, then Marty or Kemp.

    Looks like Brox could stand some innings. If he doesn’t get on track here in the next couple weeks, drop him back to set-up and give Wade or Mota a shot at closing until Brox finds his rhythm.

    This team might not gel right away, but it has the potential to be absolutely awesome when its on. If they can get the starters through 6, the BPs got a lot of good 1 inning arms it can throw at you.

  33. trublu4ever

    Good morning, Enchanted ~ I agree with your assessment of kast night’s game. Especially that fact of Hudson batting second. I think he should be dropped in the order, too. Brox did manage to get himself out of a jam, allowing only one run to score. He will be okay, the more he pitches.

  34. ramslover

    Good morning all…I did not make it thru the game..I fell asleep with Bellasario pitching…He is intriguing..his ball seems to move alot and he gets swing and misses…which is so important out of the BP..I really like Troncoso..call me crazy, but he throws that heavy sinker…I would like to see him start the year in the BP..

    Enchanted, I agree with the Hudson assessment. He looks rusty. I would put him 8th now and let him work his way back to baseball shape. He had a very serious injury and does not look good at the plate.

    Brox is Brox..not the smartest guy in the room but a bull on the field…He has to make it happen or we could get in a big hole..There is no one else on the roster I think could close effectively…I really wish he did not waste time with team USA, that has put him behind.

  37. nellyjune

    Good Morning/Afternoon ITD readers and writers!!!!

    It was a great game yesterday, and I agree if Hudson isn’t getting it done in the 2-hole after a few weeks, we need to look at other options in that slot.

    I find it interesting that MLB Blogs keep coming out with “new and improved” right at the start of the season instead in the middle of winter.

  51. crzblue2

    Hello everyone! Last night at the stadium I was beginning to feel like I was coming down with a cold. I stopped this morning and got dayquil, and other stuff. I don’t want to be sick! I got the game tonight and tomorrow night and then off to San Diego for the Opener there. Since there is no game on Sunday, I’ll do my taxes then. I can’t believe the day the deadline is almost here!

  52. shad78

    Gosh sorry for the double post must been acting up all morning. Who in the hell did these ranking? The A’s and Braves rank 11 and 14 and I doubt the Cardinals going to make Pujols there closer. Look at the White Sox, Blue Jays, Marlins and Astros should be ranked a little bit higher than those other teams that finished under .500.

  53. enchantedbeaver

    ST LOUIS (AP) – In a bizarre twist, St. Loius Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa named Albert Pujols Cardinal’s closer for 2009. LaRussa said, “Albert can do it all”, “Now you know why I bat the pitcher 8th.” LaRussa also admitted, “I know we’ll have our doubters out there, but what do they know.”

  54. colliethec

    Hello there. I’ve tried to post numerous times the past few days only to not make it in and spend time re-typing. Completely frustrating.
    .
    So since I do this for fun and to get away from the frustrations of life, until they work this out I hope you all do well and I’ll see you sometime soon. Hopefully they’ll figured out the problem…

  55. trublu4ever

    dcollins ~ this is pretty bad. It’s wordse than when the times were all off or some people had their names changed.

  56. Dodger4life

    Hey everyone, box score’s and beer for me….. Life is good today !!!
    .
    GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  57. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    Well, another night of dealing with the ghosts in the MLB machine is over, at least, temporarily….hope Bills gets a quick inning here.

  58. nellyjune

    Well, the blog is running slow too so it’s not helping.

    On defense, I will just let you know that the inning ended and if there was any score at the end of that half inning.

    Billz is done for this inning – 0-0, going into bottom of the 2nd.

  59. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    I’ve got the game on radio so, at least, MLB hasn’t screwed that up…….yet!!!!

  60. nellyjune

    Thanks for being the crowd Dodger4life!!!

    Good evening seesky!!!

    Matt – having a great at-bat (alot of foul balls – 9 pitches so far) Ball

  61. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    Trying to merely sign in tonight was a real chore…….nice catch, Matty K!!!!!!

  62. vl4ecc

    Good evening all. It’s been a while! I’ve got a good feeling the boys in blue will score alot more runs this year, and have a good feeling with the projected starting rotation. The bullpen worries me though!
    GO DODGERS!!!

  63. trublu4ever

    And, it would take so long for the post to publish that you’d hit the button and get a double post. Then, of course, the infamous “internal server” problem.

  64. nellyjune

    Wow!! Great inning for Billz!!!! 11 retired in a row – Keep it up Billz!!!

    Manny, Dre and Russell due up next…….

  65. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    With the way this one started, who’d have thought we’d have a pitcher’s duel on our hands.

  66. vl4ecc

    Thanks nells & tru! Unfortunately, I won’t be on ITD as much this season. My work schedule is insane! At the present time, I’m putting in between 70 to 84 hours a week at work, in a 6 day work week, so there’s not much time to spend blogging. Everyone knows the old saying; “The work sucks, but I need the bucks!”:)

  67. oldbrooklynfan

    One bad pitch by Bilz, probably got too much of the plate on Kendall.
    Otherwise a good outing.

  68. trublu4ever

    vl ~ that’s too bad you won’t be able to chat with us very much.
    .
    Damn, I didn’t log off and had to sign in again!

  69. vl4ecc

    I’ll be on as much as I can this season.
    Like I mentioned earlier, the bullpen worries me! More runs scored doesn’t mean much when the relievers don’t hold the opposition in check……

  70. trublu4ever

    vl ~ I think Joe is still trying to figure out who he’s going to keep. It is our one problem area though, I must admit.

  71. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    According to Charlie, the ballboy fielded the ball before it went into foul territory. Real embarrassing for the kid.

  72. cpompe1

    Good late evening ITD boys and girls!
    I know, I know, it’s been a while. The game isn’t on TV, so I just see 7 – 0 and say, YUCK! So who’s been giving up all the runs? At least I can see gameday. It’s not the same as TV, but it’ll do.

    Tru – I see your name is somewhat restored. Do you like it as it is now or are you still waiting for your regular name? I see we have some friends that we haven’t seen in a while! vl4ecc – it’s good to see ya around!

    And I just saw that Russ just hit a 2-run HR!!! Yeah Russ!!!

    So how are my ITD friends this evening???

  73. trublu4ever

    CP ~ I like my new name…..when I tried to get trublu back it said it was already taken (of course it was, by me)!
    Tanyon was the worst offender in the pitching department!

  74. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    You’re right, joepierre. It was a live ball that he fielded in foul territory.

  75. cpompe1

    Well tru, I’m glad you like your new name. And why doesn’t it surprise me that Tanyon is the one that continues to not be able to get batters out. I see that Joe still hasn’t made his last cuts yet. C’mon Joe, let Ned’s reclamation projects go! Okay, a couple are doing okay, but we all know who needs to be off the team!

  76. trublu4ever

    CP ~ we have to hope the starters can go deep ito the game. Ohman will be good. I think Wade will come around. Other than that, I don’t have much faith in Estes, Sturtz or Weaver.

  77. cpompe1

    Yes, our starters do have to go deep into the game. In a short period, yes, Ohman seems to be doing well. Hopefully Wade will come around. I think Weaver will be okay, but I’m just hoping that Estes and Sturtz will be off the team come Monday the 6th!

  78. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    It will be interesting to see what our record and Arizona’s is at the end of April. Arizona plays a disproportionate amount of home games and ours are heavily on the road.

  79. cpompe1

    My mom’s at the game tonight. I hope she’s not to bummed out so far. But she knows it’s only an exhibition game. But still, this has to hurt to watch this game. And it looks like I’ll be able to go to the Dodgers’ home opener! Yeah! Can’t wait!

  80. oldbrooklynfan

    I will be at the Mets home opener with my daughter.
    The very first home opener at Citi Field, the Ebbet’s Field look alike ballpark.

  81. cpompe1

    Hey Seesky! How are ya! I would like to think that the Dodgers will be ahead of the Snakes by the end of April, but with the Dodgers’ BP, I’m not so sure that we’ll be in front of them…

    Oh, and totally off-topic, but some ITDers celebrated birthdays recently? Well, I know that they’re not exactly ITDers, but today is my son’s birthday and my husband’s birthday is this Sunday!

  82. cpompe1

    Hey Joe Pierre! Boy, you’re up late, aren’t you? Anyways, have a great time at Citi Field! Should be exciting!

    So D4, have you NOW thawed out in ID???

  83. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    We’ve got good choices where backup infielders are concerned. It’s a good “problem” to have, but, unfortunately, somebody that has played well will not make the Opening Day roster.

  84. Dodger4life

    Today was April foolish..Sunny skies but alot of wind, hgh was 43 with the wind chill factor???
    Opening day weather in Boise 69 Yea!!!!!
    .
    GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  85. cpompe1

    Yeah Seesky. But I’m wondering something. I know we have good backup infielders, and I know yougnomewho is still there (yuck!), but are we really only going with one extra outfielder? Didn’t I hear a while ago that Mientkiewicz (or someone) can also play in the OF too? I just wonder why we only have one backup outfielder.

  86. cpompe1

    Okay Joe, you’re right! As long as the game is still on, it’s not late! But it does remind me of a few years ago when the three of us went to Hawaii during Spring Break. We were listening or watching a game on ESPN from the east coast and I remember it was late in a Yankee game (don’t ask me how late in the game) and it was only 10:30 or 11:00 in the morning there in Hawaii! Weird!

    D4 – Well, it seems like ID has thawed out!!! Yeah!!! It was chilly and windy here in Ventura today. Probably not as windy or not as chilly as in Boise, but I really wasn’t expecting it!

    GO DODGERS!!!

  87. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    cpompe– carrying 12 pitchers means we have to short ourselves somewhere in position players. In that situation, anybody like Mientkewitz and DeWitt, for example, who play multiple positions, will probably have an advantage. I realize I’m dating myself but I remember 4-man rotations and 9-10 man pitching staffs.

  88. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    D4life–We had our April Foolish on the actual day in Salt Lake City; snow and wind chill factors. March, definitely, went out like a lion here. I had to laugh when Charlie said that the game time temperature was a “chilly” 59 degrees.

  89. cpompe1

    The game sure has come a long way. I remember hearing of remember 4-man rotations and 9-10 man pitching staffs. But as much as I want DeWitt to stay with the big club, I’m still not sure how much playing time he’ll get and if it’s minimal, then I’d rather him sent to AAA to get playing time. I’d rather use Mientkewitz as much as we can and then bring DeWitt up later. I mean, he still is very young. He’ll get the starting job eventually, but I’d rather have him get regular playing time in AAA.

  90. cpompe1

    Yeah Seesky. I always wonder what people who actually live in COLD weather think when people like Charlie make a remark like that! I mean, I’m a native Southern Californian, born and bred. Yes, I’m a Southern California weather brat, but I do wonder. Even my husband who grew up on a farm in Northern IA says he doesn’t like cold weather any more.

  91. Dodger4life

    Good Night ITD, Dodgerfaithful

    Well, I’m getting tired. I’ve gotta go. I’ll catch up with y’all later! Great talking with y’all!!! 🙂

  93. seeskybout2rain@comcast.net

    The game has changed a lot, cpompe, but I’m not so sure how much it’s progressed. I’m not a big fan of pitch counts or the 5-man rotation. A pitching arm is like any muscle; the more you use it, the stronger it gets. It seems like there are more arm injuries these days than in past years. I can remember pitchers throwing 300 innings in a season, something we’ll never see again. I agree with you completely on DeWitt. I’d like to see him here but I don’t think he’ll progress as a player by only playing a couple of games a week. When I hear people talking about putting him in potential deals, I cringe because I think this kid has a tremendous future and I want that future to be as a Dodger.

  94. heartruss

    Good morning ITD. I was at the game last night and was pretty bored. The offense was pretty bad compared to the night before. There was a parade of pitchers, most of them ineffective. One of my favorites from ST was Xavier Paul. I made sure I got his autograph after watching him in one game becuz I was sure he would be one of the stars of ST. Sure enough, he is awesome. I wish there was room on the team for him. He is a nice person.
    How are you feeling CPompe1?
    Good morning trublu and Dodger4life.
    How are you Nellyjune.
    I still have great hopes for our Dodgers. I read that they predict the Dodgers will win the Western Division National League and the Angels will win the Western Divison American League. I think that Joe just has to straighten out the pitching and they should be just fine. I agree that probably the starting pitchers will have to be able to go deep.
    One more game in this series. I look forward to tonight. There was nothing like singing “I Love LA” after the triumphant win over the Angels on Thursday night!
    I will write later. I need to get some things done.

    Good Morning ITD readers and writers!!!

    Sorry for not finishing up my offense play by play last night, but I lost my signal for some reason. I am guessing the windy conditions here. At least we didn’t get shut out thanks to Russell and his 2 run shot. Heartruss, sorry the game was pretty much the opposite of the night before, but hopefully, it will be different tonight.

    Have a great Saturday everyone, and I will catch up to you sometime during the game, as I am going shopping with my daughter today and then having dinner with my grandfather (trublu’s dad) who turns 92 today.

    Good afternoon ITD boys and girls!
    Yeah! Spring is here and our beloved Boys in Blue start to play for real in just a couple of days!!! It’s too bad about last night’s game. Oh well, better luck next time! Tonight!

    Seesky – Yeah, I cringe too when there’s “talk” about trading DeWitt. I too see tremendous upside to this kid, and I want him to grow and mature as a baseball player in a Dodger uniform. Not to mention about some of the other highly touted minor leaguers that we’ll see soon. I just hope that none of these fall prey to the “trade” bug. Lambo anyone???

    Cat – Thanks for asking about me. I’m fine. Still unemployed, but fine. My shoulder is feeling a lot better, but far from perfect. It’ll get there soon.

    Nelly – Have fun today! Don’t go too hog-wild shopping today! And if we don’t get to talk today, have fun at your grandfather’s birthday tonight! Hey, I just notice something! My son’s birthday was yesterday, your grandfather’s birthday is today and my husband’s birthday is tomorrow!!!

    Hi cpompel! Hope your son had a great birthday! One the regular season ticket holders that sit in my row was also celebrating her bday. I bought her a margarita but none for me. Hope you and your hubby have a great day tomorrow celebrating his bday.

    Seeky: I like this “Don’t let the Gnat bugs bite!!!! LOL.

    D4! Oh yeah..Kershy takes the mound today! Billz had a preety good outing even though he took the loss.

    Tru& Nelly: I hope you are having a great day shopping and celebrating your dad/grandpa’s bday.
