I love the 80s

It’s Fireworks Night at the Ravine and we’ve got an 80s theme so hopefully you’ll be here…rain seems to have gone away for the day, which is cool.

Thanks to some big Dodger fans over at the NBA, we got the chance to stop over at practice today for the Lakers and Magic and see how media operations run in the NBA. We’re all pulling for the Lake show, including Sasha Vuajcic, who is throwing out first pitch tonight. And of course, Kareem, who was wearing his Dodger hat at Staples today and is a big Dodger fan.

And while we’re on the subject of LA legends, Tommy has updated his blog so take a peek.

Here’s tonight’s lineup:

Pierre, LF

Furcal, SS

Hudson, 2B

Blake, 3B

Loney, 1B

Martin, C

Ethier, RF

Kemp, CF

Milton, P

No Comments

As my Uncle would say, “Cheers! 1st of the day!”!!

Obviously Joe is ignoring our comments and suggestions about his lineup. I only hope that somebody gets hot and we break the offensive ineptitude.

Thanks for the update Josh! We all appreciate your efforts and all that you do to make this blog happen!
Will Sash be moved back to the 3 point rubber?
I think there is going to be some upset ITD folks tonight when they see the lineup.
I’m not big on changing the lineup all the time, but I think there needs to be some changes when the wheels stop spinning the way they can.
Let’s beat them Phillies tonight!!
Go Blue!!!
Bring the Ring to LA in 2009!!!!

Joe: They say we’re old and we can’t see
Anything good about walks or OBP.
Juan: Well I don’t care if all that’s true
‘Cause you got me, and baby I got you
Juan: Babe
Both: I got you babe I got you babe

Joe: They say our love won’t win no games
But I don’t care if we go down in flames.
Juan: I guess that’s so, I don’t care either
as long as I get to start instead of Ethier

Juan: Babe
Both: I got you babe I got you babe

Juan: I got 8….point 8 mil, and I put you…. in my will.
Joe: And when I’m sad, you’re a clown
And if I get scared, you’re always around
Joe: So let them say your hat’s too big
‘Cause I don’t care, let them call me pig
Juan: Then put your little hand in mine
There ain’t no hill or mountain we can’t climb

Juan: Babe
Both: I got you babe I got you babe

Juan: I got you to write my name
Joe: I got you to lead the game
Juan: I got you to pull up my socks
Joe: I got you to take me on walks

Both: I got you babe

Whoa, almost a whole year ago!

LETS WIN BOY’S!!!!!!!!

Can’t wait for the game and handing the Phillies a BIG LOSS!!!! LET’S GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!! MAKE THOSE BATS COME ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!

Bear ~ maybe if you type the line-up in capital letters, Joe can see them. If you go first, everyone will follow!


Not usually one to comment much on lineups but is it my imagination or have Dodger bats cooled off when Joe started moving Blake further up and Kemp and Ethier down?

Collie, funny comment about Sasha. I was thinking something along those lines. I hope I get there in time tonight to see if someone has to toss him the ball first or if he tries to dribble the baseball and make a pull up pitch from the corner.

Why can’t Sasha drive it to the plate and slam it in the catcher’s glove?

And draw the foul in the process.

The “and one”! πŸ™‚

Wow I didn’t think Grienke was going to keep his good ERA up.

This is where Dr. Jekyll – Mr. Phan lives. Notice how very polite and N I C E he is on the very sparse Phillies blog:
He even repeats some of what he considers his insightful gems.

lol Joe doesn’t read this board.

I think the lineup is ok… my only change would be to try Kemp #2 and move Furcal down to #8 until he starts to hit… maybe Kemp would cut down on his strikeouts in the 2 hole?

We can only hope but Kemp need to bat 3rd with Hudson #2. Kemp is a better hitter in his career in the 3rd spots.

Hello Everybody at ITD
I hope Jamie Moyer, can’t find his left arm and has to pitch with his right. Just to give us a start anyway. (lol)
If not we’re going to have to find a way to get this offense going.
If would be good to get some help from the .239 hitting Furcal.
Maybe Jayson Werth can have a bad night for us.

I think to bat in the top 4 spots, you need at least 5 years experience according to Joe Torre (lol)

hi all time to beat down some philly kiester… viva los dodgers

WIN WIN WIN!!!!!!!

Good Evening All πŸ™‚

Good Evening ~ LET’S GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

stupid pierre…

That was a brilliant inning of offense. You can always blame Pierre, but Furcal is the worthless a**hole who can’t even hit the ball enough to get the runner to third. What a gd waste of another three year contract. This guy is so putrid, the best thing he could do is break his gd leg and at least be off the squad legitimately.

Good Evening ITD readers and writers!!!!! Nothing like getting on just in time to see JP get caught.

You are right about that messagebear. JP would have scored with a basehit.

That was a good move by Pierre, but Utley was ready for him.

At least you have to give credit to Milton for trying – good job. He may not have the best stuff, but the guy looks like he’s giving a 100% of whatever he has. I appreciate that.


This game is erily looking like last night’s

Well, at least Russ went to right on an outside pitch – I couldn’t believe it, but somebody must have been talking to him.


Go Dodgers! Be patient and wear Moyer out. The trouble is milton is up on the pitch count too. My thought on Raffy is that he is not adapting to batting number 2 in the line up.
Go Dodgers!

Koufax ~ How about batting Raffy #8 for a while?

Perhaps castro should play short stop? and put Blake back to 8th!

How about Raffy 1, Hudson 2 and Manny 3?

That’s the way it’s supposed to be Kahli!

Koufax ~ I think Castro will get a lot of playing time because Joe likes to rest Raffy and Hudson.

COME ON DODGER………..LET’S WAKE UP THE BATS!!! The Giants are beating the Marlins going to the bottom of the ninth!

Moyer doesn’t look any different than Hamels, with that holding the ball in front of him while he’s reading the sign.

Good evening all.
WTF is up with this scoring drought? Moyer’s a has been junk baller with an ERA over 6!
They should be lighting him up big time!!!

Im reaching for the Patron!

Sloppy play lately. Good thing the season is long.
Or is that a bad thing?

Ever hear of a cutoff man?

Patron sounds good, but I prefer Don Julio Anejo. Better after taste on my taste buds.
OK! This is not Milton’s night! With all the hits he’s given up, we’re lucky they haven’t scored more. I hope Joe’s got a short leash!

The good news… The Marlins loaded the bases with 2 outs down by 1 in the bottom of the 9th against the Giants closer.
The bad news… He got the 3rd out on a grounder to short.

Just like a bad penny, it keeps showing up.

What? Bad defense?

I WILL NOT ENGAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Too bad about that error by Odawg, they wouldn’t’ve scored.

vl4 ~ πŸ™‚

3 zip is bad but they should be able to put some up against Moyer.
This is the way Milty is going to be this year. Some games good, some bad. Some innings good, some bad. He’s coming off surgery and that will take time for him.
Tonight is the bad night. 61 pitches through 4 innings.

Good boy, vl4 !

vl4ecc: I would not refuse either tequila if offered! and the way this game is going “the quervo gold” will satisfy. Is Weaver warm?

Hey everyone. Guess he’s bored because there’s nothing much going on on the Phillie’s blog compared to ours.

They just seem like they are pressing in all the areas of the game. I get the feeling that once they break out of the funk and get a SP in a trade, they will be okay.

ODAWG got one back.

Wat to make something happen JP! :)!!
Go Blue!!!

Hi Bluecrewgirl ~ a few more runs by us would help get rid of pests.

The drought is over.

Hey Tru, BCG, Joe, vl4 & Koufax! I hope you are all well tonight!

Collie ~ I’m okay. How about you?


Milton is toast tonight!!!

I hear you koufax! I’m drinking Amber Bock tonight. I forgot how good these taste!
My motto used to be; “I can resist ANYTHING but temptation.”
Now it’s “Age & Treachery will ALWAYS overcome youth & skill.”
Never mess with a grumpy old man.

GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

C’mon Dodgers, get to that bullpen.

Sweet D by the O-Dog!! Way to save a run!!!!!

Glad you are here, dodger4life! We need our cheerleasder tonight!


Hey there NSB. Welcome to the fun!
By Milton. Thanks for trying!
Let’s go Mota. We need some good work here!

Good defense is saving Milton’s hide tonight.
About time Joe brought the hook!
Oh no! PLEASE! Not Mota! We want to STOP the bleeding!


Like I posted earlier, this is where Dr. Jekyll – Mr. Phan lives. Notice how very polite and N I C E he is on the very sparse Phillies blog:
He even repeats some of what he considers his insightful gems.

Not a bad outing against a team like the Phillies for MILTON.

Hellloooo D4! I’m with you!
Go Blue!!!
Let’s go Dodgers!!!!

Can Mota get 2 outs without a run?

Every time Mota comes in out of the pen, I run out of fingers & toes to cross.


Me, too, vl4 LOL

Hey NS, haven’t seen you in a while. Hope you are doing well.

How are ya collie, and eveyone else, we need to slow Moyers rythym down….LETS GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG! Mota’s ERA is now under 6!!!

MOTA’s Looking good lately.

You are right, Dodger4life. We need to be patient at the plate. Make him work.


vl4 — It worked… get some duct tape keep em crossed!
D4 — Good point. You are correct. They need to step out a time or 2.
They are just letting him get the ball and throw.

We need a few hits true, hell slow down after that.

Hamels, I can understand, but Moyer, they should be hitting him.

He’s really hanging that pitch…

Hey Dco, glad to be home for gametime tonight… or I will be once we start hanging some crooked numbers on that board.

Headed to Del Taco today, two other Dodger fans were in there as well, one with a Lakers hat too… and the food is like fast-food home cooking to this native of the Home Of Del Taco, though no Del Taco is as good as the 3 Barstow Del Tacos, especially portions-wise.

as I left, I told my girlfriend, “Great, now back to stupid NorCal.”

BCG ~ I’m with you, we should be crushing the ball off Moyers!


I really hope Torre shakes up this lineup soon.
They are all out of wack. Ferk needs to be in his natural lead off position. Pierre has continued to do well but we don’t need 3 lead off hitters at the top. We need to move one of them to the 9th hole. It worked earlier…

Uh-oh, looks like Philly’s interested in our sloppy s… um, nevermind, there might be children present:


The good news is Moyer is throwing more pitches than Hamels did last night at this point.
That could be our chance.

Hitting is contagious. Unfortunately, so is NOT hitting.

All we need is someone to spark the offense. One spark.

Hi, Dodgereric. Next time through the lineup we will get them! How is that for confidence?!

I agree dcollins. Leading of is part of Raffy’s game and mentality and I think that’s part of the reason he’s out of rhythm.

NSBlues ~ so, the bad Penny may show up in Philly!

Funny NSB! We don’t have any Del Tacos around here. They are great!
This is what I miss from down there…

Hi BlueCrewGirl, things are going good here. Enjoying the night game at home, after listening to Vin Scully fighting 8 Ranchero and Mariachi bands for 45 minutes in the car while running errands. It was a valiant fight, but with the sun still up, Scully never had a chance.

Hi tru! Goodness knows, if Mota can remember how to pitch, we can remember how to hit! lol!!

I keep getting kicked off my computer. I got the coolest gift from a former student today even. I got a huge mlb/Dodger care package. It had two Dodger photo albums, a Dodger plate, Dodger colored pencils, Dodger pens, Dodger peanuts (a bag of peanuts with our Dodgers Logo on the bag) Cracker Jacks, Red Vines, Sunflower Seeds, and, of course, Peanut M&Ms. The great thing about this student is that he is an A’s fan, his mom is a gnat fan, his dad is a Tiger fan (grew up in Michigan), and his grandma is a Dodger fan, but supports the A’s as well.

BTW collie – I saw your comment this mornings, and they were great. Every year I do a memory book for the class, which includes pictures of all the highlights/events of the year and with each picture, they need to write about what they remember about that highlight or event. Guess what the most talked about highlight was? Dodgereric’s visit to my classroom. They remember every single thing he and Chris did and said. It was the most filled up page. The #2 highlight was “MLB Opening Day 2009” and the third was our Beach Boys Musical,which is the most current thing we did.

You are right, Dodgereric!!!! LMAO!!!

Okay! All this finger & toe crossing must be working!
But I’m starting to cramp up! Last thing I need would be to be hit with arthritis, or carpel tunnel! LOL!

NS, I know what you mean. I have to deal with dueling stations on my way up to Apple Valley when I visit my family.

GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WTG Matt! I hope this is the spark to ignite some scoring.

Nelly :))))))

Hey Tru, yeah, that might be the case. That shoulder’s like a ticking time bomb at this point. One go at a Gatorade cooler, and it might be 15 days on the DL.

When he’s on, though, he’s scary good.

vl, you’re wasting your time crossing your fingers and toes. That’s just silly.
It’s all in how you hold your breath between pitches!

Hi, Nelly. Happy first day of your summer vacation to you.

Good job Mota!
vl4 — Duct tpe really will help. It’ll just be a little tough to remove!
Nelly — I’m not surprised. It’s neat that he had an impact on them.

NSBlues ~ he doesn’t get through enough innings. He seems to go five and thinks that’s my job for the day.

NSBlues ~ he doesn’t get through enough innings. He seems to go five and thinks that’s my job for the day.

CRAP! At least the kid worked the count a bit before grounding into the DP.
Moyer is stepping in dung, and coming out smelling too good here.

Hey Dodger4life!!! How are you?

Boy!!!! Lots of great people on here tonight.

Looks like Moyer is weakening but not fast enough.

Vinny’s most cutting remark…and man, does it ever nail it on the head: “Dodgers tiptoe through the inning.”

Since Messagebear isn’t here I’m going to say we need Manny back. He puts some pizazz into the lineup!

I’m good Nelly….Wait’n for some Dodger runs πŸ™‚

Memo to Dodger starters: “Giants starting pitchers have allowed three earned runs or less in 16 of the past 17 games…”

Good job Mota!
vl4 — Duct tpe really will help. It’ll just be a little tough to remove!
Nelly — I’m not surprised. It’s neat that he had an impact on them.

Hard to type with duct tape everywhere. LOL

I was just talking to my dad on the phone and he’s a Red Sox fan. I was telling him about Penny and he’d be happy to be rid of him. He’s lucky to have the record he does, because he hasn’t really pitched that well for the Red Sox. My dad also commented that he can’t believe the Dodgers aren’t hitting Moyer tonight. They need to snap out of it.

2ble posts all over tonight…

3 great defensive plays tonight. We are showing some good glove work which is a start to turn the funk around.

Getting shut out by Moyer HAS to mean there’s no way to go but up, right?

Some 2009 Dodger splits:

Furcal leading off .250
Hitting 2nd .203

Blake hitting 8th .317
hitting 4th .333 (only 5 games, but no HRs yet)

Kemp gets better the lower he hits:
Batting 4th .158
Batting 5th .267
Batting 6th .286
Batting 7th .328
Batting 8th .455
Batting 9th 1.000
OK, very few ABs in all but the 7 slot. But fun to look at.

LMTO vl4
Nice running!

Let’s hope seven is our lucky number tonight.

Hey bluecrewgirl!!!!! I will be much better tomorrow. Today was exhausting, with it being a rainy morning, and trying to move things out of my room into my new room, while things were being moved into my room. It was just chaos, but my students handled it very well. I

Alright Dodgers – great defense there!!!!

That was as nice a version of God Bless America as I’ve heard in a while. Nothing fancy, very respectful.

eric, nice numbers but they’d mean nothing to Joe. He picks his batting order based on who’s been hot in a certain spot–and then moves him.

You gotta luv Vin. “Freedom isn’t free.”
The 65th anniversary of D-Day. A sad day but the day that started the end of Hitler.
Thanks to those that sacrificed their lives and bodies for me & my family. & those that were alive thanks for the sacrifices you made as well. The whole country worked together to a common good.

She was an American Idol contestant last season. She has a nice, down to earth kind of voice.

Dodgereric ~ and wasn’t Juan hitting better batting 9th?

There’s our spark!

It’s about time Raffy!

She was an American Idol contestant last season. She has a nice, down to earth kind of voice.

Sorry for the double post. This blog is very jumpy tonight. C’mon Casey!

I’m not a big Idol guy, but I liked her when she was on it. She seemed like a real sweet girl. Wifey & I were pulling for her.
Interesting numbers Eric.

Way to spank it Raffy! Let’s get this run in.

bluecrewgirl ~ I forgot to finish my thought because I was so excited about our defense. ……………I felt really bad for them because it wasn’t the way they should have had to spend their last day in their classroom.

Alright Raffy!!

ALRIGHT LONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheap, but we’ll take it.

Okay I’m not a ML player but that pitch was way outside and Blake pulled it to 3rd. I mean if the pitcher is throwing inside making you pull it to the front base that’s one thing… But why didn’t he just poke it to the right side?
More nice D by the Phils. 2 balls they could of caught & didn’t!
Let’s keep plugging away.

Nelly, they should be extra ready for their vacations too. We just scored a lucky run there, but it’s still frustrating that they don’t have more runs. No way Moyer should be stifling them the way Hamels did last night.

I second that colliethic. Thank you from me as well πŸ™‚

dodgereric – interesting numbers, very interesting.

Finally we get the run in on LONEY’S bloop.

Tru, not really:

1st .373 (118 ABs)
3rd .333 (3 ABs)
8th .400 (5 ABs)
9th .333 (21 ABs)

Funny, I thought he hit 8th more than that. But that’s from

Thanks, Dodgereric. I was curious about his hitting prowess.

We getting there.

Im so frustrated with martin, just hit it to the opposite field!

Maybe a smile from the old Hollywood Squares will help:
Q. When a couple have a baby, who is responsible for its sex?
A. Charley Weaver: I’ll lend him the car, the rest is up to him.

LMAO!!!!!!! That’s good Kahli!!

46 years old and it’s not like he’s freaking Roger Clemens or Nolan Ryan for bloody sake. I know we’re in first and having a great year, but it’s still frustrating.

I had to say something D4. I’m sorry I was late. But I was on a date! Yes you can congratulate! It was Great! I had a wonderful dinner on my plate! & a sweet Wifey to make it complate!!

Okay.. I know “complate” isn’t a word but complete didn’t rhyme!

LEACH made though the war, unscafed, …so far.


Speaking of Trocoso, this from CBS Sports.com power rankings:
“According to my calculations, the Dodgers’ magic number to clinch the NL West is 12. Yet even with a 37-game cushion, Joe Torre still won’t be able to resist the temptation to use Ramon Troncoso in five straight games this summer. Somebody oughta give the bullpen coach veto power over Torre’s late-game shenanigans.”

I wonder if any team has EVER had splits like this. EVER.

2009 Dodgers – hitting by positions (combined) through 63 games
Batting first – .305, 1 HR
second – .298, 5 HRs
third – .308, 6 HRs
fourth – .263, 2 HRs
fifth – .238, 0 HRs
sixth – .307, 7 HRs
seventh – .290, 6 HRs
eighth – .320, 8 HRs
ninth – .198, 2 HRs

Anything jump out at you?

Charlie Weaver aka Cliff Arquette. Does that last name ring any bells?

That is awesome Collie!!!!

Awesome collie :))))
COME ON BOY’S!!!!!!!!

Kahli ~ Paul Lynde had some good lines too but, I’m drawing a blank right now! It’s an old age syndrome!

Casey was batting 8th and had the most HRs there. Now Matt is batting there, and he hit his latest HR batting there, didn’t he?

vl4 ~ I’m old enough to remember Charley Weaver.

I used to like the old Hollywood squares where they had certain regulars. Rose Marie from the Dick Van **** show was on there for years too.

Who has the HR’s in the 6th slot.

I think Andre’s home run the other night was in the 6 spot, but I’m not sure.

Paul Lynde for sure…this’ll probably get me thrown off the blog, but if it made it through network television censors, why not here:
Q. Paul, what is a good reason for pounding meat?
A. Paul Lynde: Loneliness!

I used to like “Hollywood Squares” as well. Paul Lynde was pretty good. Wasn’t Charro on the old ones quite a bit too?

Kahli ~ LMTO!!!!

Peter Marshall: According to Ann Landers, is their anything wrong with getting into the habit of kissing a lot of people?
Charley Weaver: It got me out of the army!

I really want to see Stairs up against Brox again. Big John is alot more intimidating now than last year.

LMAO, kahli! Paul had some great lines. Yes, Charro was on quite a bit.

Thanks, dodgereric. I needed that!!!

Untilthe Dodgers tie the game I’ll be relentless”
Q. Charley, you’ve just decided to grow strawberries. Are you going to get any during the first year?
A. Charley Weaver: Of course not, I’m too busy growing strawberries.

Peter Marshall: According to Tony Randall, “Every woman I’ve been intimate with in my life has been…” What?
Paul Lynde: Bitterly disappointed.

Peter Marshall: Diamonds should not be kept with your family jewels, why?
Paul Lynde: They’re so cold!

Between you, Kahli and Dodgereric, who cares who wins the game?! LOL


I do care who wins the game but, this is more fun right now!

Q. You’ve been having trouble going to sleep.. Are you probably a man or a woman?
A. Don Knotts: That’s what’s been keeping me awake.


Q. According to Cosmopolitan, if you meet a stranger at a party and you think that he is attractive, is it okay to come out and ask him if he’s married?
A. Rose Marie: No wait until morning.

Peter Marshall: According to “Cosmo,” if you meet a stranger at a party and you think he’s really attractive, is it okay to come out directly and ask him if he’s married?
Rose Marie: No, wait until morning.

Kahli ~ Paul Lynde had some good lines too but, I’m drawing a blank right now! It’s an old age syndrome!

I’m feeling the same! I don’t know if it’s part timers, or just plain old C.R.S.!
I do remember him singing; “Cheese binds mice” in the same tune as 3 blind mice, but everything else is just coming up blank…

Doin’ it for good luck, tru!

Peter Marshall: When you pat a dog on its head he will usually wag his tail. What will a goose do?
Paul Lynde: Make him bark.

bluecrewgirl…that was psychic!
Q. Back in the old days, when Great Grandpa put horseradish on his head, what was he trying to do?
A. George Gobel: Get it in his mouth.

Lol, kahli, I gues great minds think alike): We posted the same line at the same time.

Make him bark!!!!!! LMTO!!!!!!!!!!!!

BCG ~ George Gobel was a riot, too!

Peter Marshall: Paul, Zsa Zsa Gabor says she never ever swims with her face in the water. Why?
Paul Lynde: It clogs the drain.

LMAO!!!! I am enjoying just reading for now…………..thank you πŸ™‚

Maybe our humor can shake the Dodgers!!!

LMAO!!!! I am enjoying just reading for now…………..thank you πŸ™‚

Kahli ~ I think I see the players smiling!

Q. If you’re going to make a parachute jump, at least how high should you be?
A. Charley Weaver: Three days of steady drinking should do it.

This is almost 9 minutes long, but very well worth it if you like George Gobel:

I might need three days of steady drinking after this game!!!

Come on pull through Juan…

I have a feeling they’ll hit Blanton tomorrow. Nelly, Andre is .500 career against him 4-8 with a home run.

I’m definitely going to see that, Dodgereric, after the game. Thanks.

Deja vu. Juan being Juan again.

didnt think juan would not make contact

Yes, George was funny too, trublu. Wasn’t John Ritter on there quite a bit for a time or am I just imagining that?

He seems to do well against former A’s pitchers. Dan Haren and Blanton are both former A’s pitchers. I liked Blanton when he pitched for the A’s. Now he is on that other team.

Can’t say they’re not trying.

That’s interesting. Blake is 1-21, .043 against him. Ouch.

Peter Marshall: What are “Do It”, “I Can Help” and “Can’t Get Enough”?
George Gobel: I don’t know but it’s coming from the next apartment.

Thanks for all the Hollywood Squares. I only remember the days of Shadow Stevens and Jim J. Bullock in the 80’s.

Peter Marshall: True or false…a pea can last as long as 5,000 years.
George Gobel: Boy it sure seems that way sometimes…

NS, you make me feel old, lol. Jim J. Bullock was great on the Ted Knight, Too Close for Comfort, that he was on. That was a good show.

One more for the upcoming 9th-inning rally:
Q. Jackie Gleason recently revealed that he firmly believes in them and has actually seen them on at least two occasions. What are they?
A. Charley Weaver: His feet.

BCG ~ that was a funny show.

Too Close For Comfort was great!

Furcal, Hudson, Blake VS ….Lidge

Strangely, this game is not at all out of reach. I feel a 9th inning rally coming on too, Kahli.

Sure hope they can do it with a walk off here.
Big Bad John got the crowd fired up striking out the side. I sure hope the offense can feed off the energy, and deliver.
We know drama!

I’m with ya, kahli!

Peter Marshall: What do you call a cow that won’t give milk?
George Gobel: Hamburger.

I really liked Ted Knight in the Mary Tyler Moore Show. Ted Baxter was a riot!

He was a funny man, trublu. Now if only O-Dog can get on and Blake can go yard, we’ll be good to go.

2 out rally!

Peter Marshall: You have some lipstick on your collar. Will treating it with petroleum jelly help?
George Gobel: I’m gonna have a hard enough time explaining the lipstick!

Do it Loney…

WTG Blake! Still breathing…..

LOL, Dodgereric. Come on James!!!!

Peter Marshall: Burt Reynolds is quoted as saying, “Dinah (Shore)’s in top form. I’ve never known anyone to be so completely able to throw herself into a…” A what?
Paul Lynde: A headboard.


Peter Marshall: Years ago, American Indians tied small pine trees to their feet, and thereby invented what?
George Gobel: Shoe trees.

LMAO, 32 & 53!!!!

Do it Martin…

Come on Russ!!!

Wouldn’t this be a great spot for Russ’ first HR?

Peter Marshall: What is the definition of the word “Gobbledygook?”
George Gobel: That’s the stuff that crusts over in turkeys’ eyes when they’re asleep.

Peter Marshall: What do you call a man who gives you diamonds and pearls?
Paul Lynde: I’d call him “darling”!


OMG! Here we go!

OMG, bases loaded for Andre! C’mon, Dre!!!!!!!

my son just said “epic fail”

C A P I T A L I Z E !!!!

Come on DRE!!!!


Peter Marshall: True or false, George…experts say there are only seven or eight things in the world dumber than an ant.
George Gobel: Yes, and I think I voted for six of ’em.

YEAH ANDRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AWESOME DRE!!!!!!!!!!!


WAY TO GO ‘DRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




***** YOU PHAN!!!!!!!!!!!

Holy Cow!!!! Outstanding Andre!!!!!
ITD says:
Fu-Q Phan!!!!!!!!


Talking about Jackie Gleason….. “How sweeeeeeeet it isss!
Gotta love those come from behind wins.

Oh My God ! Thank you Dodgers God !





Perfect ending!

My son:
0_o ummmm…………………..

I bet Phan is having a doo doo hemorrage! LMFAO!

We will never have a lead that is safe, but WE WILL ALMOST NEVER BE OUT OF A GAME ETHIER!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was the Hollywood Squares that brought them around. Thank you guys!!!!!

JHALL IS IN THE ITD HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HEY WALLY!!!!

My neighbors must think I’m crazy. I screamed when Andre got his hit. Matt just came out and put a towel with shaving cream in his face. They had to end the interview because I guess it really burns bad when it gets in your eyes.

Hi’Ya Dad!!!! Absolutely Out-freaking-standing!!!!!

And, you too Bluecrewgirl!!!

Ethieriffic dodgereric!!!!!

Hey tru, call up Junie! I’m worried that she’s had a stroke or something!!

Peter Marshall: We’ve all heard the old phrase “A pig in a poke.” What is a poke?
Paul Lynde: It’s when you’re not really in love.
No pokes tonight…just clutch hits.
I LOVE this team!

Hi’Ya Nelly!!! Wonder why we haven’t heard from our decerebrate Phillie masturbater’!!!! LOL!!!!

You gotta love it! Lidge has gone from the penthouse last year, to the outhouse this year. I knew last year was a fluke. Now I see why the Stro’s kicked him to the curb

Hey!! There she is!!!! Thank God! I got worried!!!

Our hitting/scoring slump is OVER!!!!!

Peter Marshall: Why is the Phillies Phan such a good fisherman?
Paul Lynde: Because he’s a master baiter.




LMFTO 32!!!!

BRING THE RING TO L.A. IN 2009!!!!!!!!

Gotta love that line:

Phils 3 Runs, 11 Hits
Dodgers 4 Runs, 6 Hits

I was actually afraid to watch to I switched to radio, and then had to go back and find the highlight so I can actually see it.

Just got in for the last inning and a half!!! Glad I missed the first part of this one. Must have been kind of bleak!!! LMAO with the old Hollywood Squares stuff. Nice touch gang!!!!!

Kahli and I were pulling out all the stops, but I guess 32 put us over the top!

LOL!! Glad to see I’m still under your collective skin, even when you get lucky that the best fielding third baseman in the league makes an error. Blind squirrels do find nuts, you know.
It’s June and your visitors clubhouse still has the faint odor of stale champagne. Deal.

Good Night Dodger4life!!! Take care and God Bless sir πŸ™‚

Wow does the feiliz error loom big in that one. Lead the way Dre! Kuroda tomorrow. I hope he is on the money for National TV. Sleep with smiles tonight

No need to go on the silly philly blog, and raise up some hate & discontent like phan52 does here.
He’s probably stuffing as much cheesesteak in his pie hole as possible.

They’re interviewing Torre and one of the graphics says it’s our 15th comeback win of the year and our 11th win in our last at-bat.

Stuff like that is what can get you all the way through the Series.

Wally ~ Where is your brother?

LOL VL4!!! I’m sure the Jergens lotion is flying all over the Playboy magazines in Phan’s house right now!!!! Simple a** probably can’t even get that right!!!!

Where is seesky? We need him to pass the flask. I bet the sweetness of this victory will calm the sting in Andre’s eyes. They really should switch to Cool Whip.

LMAO, jhall! Good to see you.

I thought he was with you and dad Nell’!!! I’m sure he is contriving something about now!!!

No worries about that, vl! We’ve got better things to do! That idiot thinks he’s under our skin when all we’re doing is laughing at his pathetic ***!

You don’t have to go anywhere; you have enough hate and discontent for the entire blogosphere right here. Poor winner, indeed…

And cheesesteaks? yummmm…extra onions….Had one on the night of October 15, 2008 if I recall….

Bonjoir BleuFille’!!!! Likewise. Was that sweet or freaking what?!!!!

Hey bluecrew, someone should lay in a supply of whipped cream for these occasions. It doesn’t sting!

Don’t get much better, jhall!!

Celebrate good times!!

Reality check…June 5, 2009. Here’s a cookie.


So true Dad/Eric!!!! Unfortunate, but it is fun to laugh at dimwits!!!! Their so freaking stupid that they don’t even realize what a joke they are!!!! Bless his empty little head!!!!

Looks like Mota is the new miracle in the bully. Nine scoreless innings in his last 7 appearances! Man, I would have lost a lot of money betting against that stat! LOL!!

Also, I hope everyone was careful of his toe as they were jumping all over him.

You watch, Junie! Lotsa runs tomorrow, this slump is OVER! You think the team is happy that Andre got the walkoff? You bet they are.

Speaking of Mota’s record………………..where is Shad tonight?

When all of us were ragging on Mota a couple of weeks ago, Joe Torre was saying he liked what he was seeing, despite a poor outcome. Maybe we should not second guess Joe’s every move. He knows that there are reasons, that are not known to us, for making certain decisions. But then that would spoil our fun of micro-managing from afar.

I was thinking the same thing when the all fell on top of him, Nelly! I know it’s all in fun, but they should really stop using the shaving cream. That stuff is noxious smelling and full of chemicals. it could really cause someone’s eyes to swell up if enough got in there and potentially cause them to miss some games. Cool Whip or as dodgereric suggested, real whip cream, would be better choices.

I agree bluecrewgirl πŸ™‚

I’d hate to admit that 32, but if bear can be nice and enchanted can have Juanpy’s baby, I guess I can not second-guess Torre’s EVERY move.

Wow, that was really healing – in a wretching kind of way.

I have no doubts Ward Dear πŸ™‚

Interesting that Phan commented on our defensive lapse and the Phillie defense came back and bit him in his a**!!! Or head, as that is where it obviously resides!!!

Speaking of nice……………..where is Messagebear? Maybe he and enchanted are together perhaps – LOL!!!!

Woo Hoo!
Good news… the Dodger win in a walk off hit by Dre!
The bad news… I’m at the emergency room again as Wifey jumped up and split her head on the dang chandelier again. :(… I’ve got to raise that thing!

LMTO, jhall! That’s the problem when all you do is talk crap. You end up looking like the loser you really are. Unfortunately, that’s what so many people do these days. I hear it at my son’s hockey games, I heard it at work from Angel fans the first day back after they took 2 of 3 from us. It didn’t matter one bit that our record was and is light years better than theirs.

I think it was north who said that they must be deficient in some important part of their character.

LOL Colly!!!

Are you serious?!? Oh Collie……………not again!!! I am sooooo sorry. However, Andre does have that affect on people.


Broxton and Billingsley are almost shoo-ins to make the All-Star team. Who the heck else is there to represent the best team in baseball? Manuel will select both those guys plus Hudson. A reach might be Kemp, as many hits as Pujols and a gold-glove-type outfielder.

Wally — Great to see you!
Great point about the dephense. I was thinking the same thing. On the double by Ferk, the single by Loney and then the ball by Martin.
Did we get lucky? or did our team make the plays (O-Dog had a couple as did Kemp & Brox struck out the side compared to, well, you know… ) to win & their players didn’t. I would say that would make us the better team.
Gosh it must really stink to loose a game in that phashion.

Yep Dad, obviously some much deeper emotional/performance issues with those people. It’s too bad that they are so impaired that they don’t even realize it. I hope Phan gets counseling!!!!

Just kidding guys. She’s all good.
I always remind her to watch out when it get’s to those points in the game. It’s almost like when base coaching I always remind my teammates if there are less then 2 outs to make sure the ball is through on a line drive so they don’t get doubled up.

Great to see you too Colly, as always. I’m with you, we made the plays and they didn’t when it counted. Tonight we were the better team. The team showed alot of heart and guts tonight!!

Thank goodness πŸ™‚

I think it will just be the first 3 kahli. They have to keep 10-12 spots for the Mets and Phils.

Collie, instead of raising the chandelier (which could be a return trip to the e-room for YOU this time) you should make this required Dodger-watching gear for Wifey:

Phillies are a darn good team. It will always be a battle against a real good team. This could very well be a preview of the post season again. Two really good teams squaring off. Makes for exciting baseball.

It’s the same way up here Eric with the Giants fans so I’m a little used to it.
They pop off even when they loose as long as the Dodgers loose.
The day Manny was suspended they were all over me. I never pop off to them even when we swept them in LA at the start of the season and all season long. They just know I’m a fan of the Dodgers through conversation. Then they pop off.
The other day I asked a couple of the guys how it felt to be 9 games out but in 2nd place. Was it better than 4th last year?
Rarely do I shoot back but sometimes it is necessary.

Uh-oh, looks like it might be a late night. TCM is starting up 1941.

………….or instead of talking current records, they bring up the one game back in May/April that they beat us. That is just hilarious.

Great idea Eric.
When we 1st were married while in bed, she headbutted me like 4-5 times the 1st year. I kept joking that I was going to wear my bicycle helmet to bed.
& before you all get going, no it wasn’t in that way!!! Just adjusting covers and pillows…

It’s common for Giant and Angel and Padre fans to pull out that tired old “I don’t care what we do, as long as we beat LA” tripe. I’ve found that saying this usually ends the conversation: “That’s the biggest difference between you and me. You’re happy if you beat us. All we care about is winning the World Series. You’re insignificant.”

Yup Nelly… I know you live it daily as well. The Dodgers organization should give us pins of accommodation for living where we live!

Sure collie, sure…….. LOL!!!

I also like this old joke:

This Giant fan went over to his pal’s house. He was a Dodger fan and a LA-SF game was well under way on the tube. The Giants scored a late run to go ahead and the Dodger fan’s pet turtle, who was watching the game, started rocking back and forth.

The Giant fan said, “What’s he doing?”
The Dodger fan said, “Unfortunately, he’s a Giant fan. He gets excited when they score.”

Later, the worst happened. The Giants won the game. The turtle rocked back and forth even faster and his tongue started flicking in and out of his mouth.

The Giant fan said, “WOW! He really IS a Giant fan! What does he do when the Giants win the World Series?”

The Dodger fan says, “I dunno. He’s only 55 years old.”

Amen Eric. You quote is the exact same as mine.

Eric — I love that… I’ll have to remember it! It’ll come in handy one day.

Jonas Bros just did the Top Plays on Sportscenter.
They had an extra play because it had just happened.
Anyone want to guess what it was? It had Brad Lidge in it.

You’re most welcome collie. It’s regurgitated. First I heard it was when USC hadn’t beaten Notre Dame in about 11 years. It was a dog, not a turtle. But for the Giants’ futility I had to think of something that could live that long! LOL!!!

One of our kids hit for the cycle!

Was there a #16 hitting?

Dcollins, so sorry about your wife. I hope she’s ok.

It made me feel good to read this article where Torre says they need Andre:

And the Dodgers hope that right fielder Andre Ethier — who hit well behind Ramirez but cooled considerably when the suspension began — is getting his stroke back.

Ethier came into Friday’s game having hit safely in eight consecutive games and batting .333 over that stretch, lifting his overall average to .263 from .250.

“I hope he is” breaking out of his slump, Torre said before Ethier’s game-winning hit against Brad Lidge. “It’s easier on his helmets, it’s easier on everything. He just looks more comfortable right now. And we need him.”

BCG — Thanks for the concern. I was just kidding this time. Sorry if you missed that.
It goes back to last year when Dre hit a walk off homer & she actually did that. She had never had any injury in her life and it was really scary for me as she was really bleeding… a lot! I just like getting Nelly. I’m thinking I got her. But now she is getting to know me so she probably was not 100% believing me!
Eric — Yes he was! He hit the ball to the fence and the Dodgers WON!!!
It was funny as the Jonas Bros were saying Dre was “their boy”. The ESPN anchor said they were aloud to add it as they did the editing (Supposedly) of the plays, and while in the editing room he said they were screaming and yelling.
So BCG, The Brothers Jonas, many other Dodger fans & I all upset our neighbors.

See Ethieraholics. Patience. Torre knows what he’s doing for the most part.
Also there was an article the other day where Mattingly was working with Dre to start to pull the ball a little more. After he had the hit he came around the bases and it looked as if he was pointing at Mattingly as he was coming out of the dugout. Then as they were walking off it looked as if Mattingly was saying see… and Dre was agreeing with him. I don’t know if anyone noticed that.
The other fun thing I saw was when they were piling on Dre he had the biggest smile on his face and was really laughing. Wifey & I thought he looked like a little kid on Christmas morning with the best gift he could of gotten.

Now if he would just use the lineup I suggested. πŸ™‚
I don’t know why that double posted… I just hit it once?
Thanks for the article Eric.
He is one on Lindblom from the other day.
There was also one on Elbert. He K’d 10 in like 5 2/3 innings.

Dcollins, very glad you were just kidding and the wife is ok. I read that article too, and Andre has been hitting for a lot more power since he’s been coming out of it and most of his hits have come by pulling the ball to right field. Not, that he wants to hit everything there, you need to hit to all parts of the field to keep the pitchers guessing, but it seems he does hit for more power pulling the ball.

You are correct BCG — If it’s inside you need to pull it. If it’s outside then go up the middle or gap to gap. Dre seldom pulls it. Now if they can get Martin to stop pulling it and go the other way then we’ll be looking good.
Here is the box score as I can’t find the article on Elbert. But he struck out 10 in 6 innings.

Great win tonight. Hopefully that is the “spark” as Eric mentioned, they need to get going!
Good night all! Take care…

So the past 2 days have been the first games i’ve gone too all year seeing as how i’m stationed in new mexico, i’m out here on leave with a friend (phillies fan) so we could catch the whole series, last night I wanted to cry, 1st time all year being shutout at home. And tonite wasnt looking any better until we got 2 outs in the 9th inning, the look on his face as lidge unravelled was priceless, I’ll be at the next 2 games and hopefully we have begun a win streak, GO DODGERS!!

Four things before I go as well:

1) Torre is 6 wins from passing Sparky Anderson for 5th place all-time in manager victories

2) The Dodgers are 2 wins from becoming the third MLB team in history with 10,000 wins

3) The Phillies are still the only team with 10,000 losses

And, most importantly…..

4) Tomorrow is the 65th anniversary of D-Day. This interview is long at 17 minutes. Every American needs to listen to it.
Everyone needs to fly their flag today. Mine flies 365.

God Bless you, collie. And BluecrewGIRL. And anyone else out there.

God Bless and thank you, members of the Greatest Generation!

And may God Bless America!

Sorry I missed the game but I see Ethier came through big time. WTG everyday Dre keep it up. What the heck gotten into Mota lately? Another 1 2/3 innings of no runs and even better a prefect day without given up a hit. Wow Mota keep it up bud and in his last 9 innings that he pitch he’s given up 5 hits and no runs amazing.

Damn when was the last time Loretta gotten a PH? Look like he’s 0/10 in his last 10 PH AB’s.

To bad he had 3 bad games last month or else his ERA could’ve been under 4. That’s great news Eric hope we can take the next 2 games and get that 10,000 wins at home.

I was just checking out Pierre numbers that Eric posted the link to and click minor league and it has Pierre having 13 assists so are you kidding me? I’m surprise he does have that many assists I was hoping at least 1 or 2 if he’s lucky but not 13 but most of them came from LF so I guess this wasn’t a new position for Pierre to learn. I assume most of them were in LF.


Good Morning ITD, Dodger Faithful
Outstanding finish for our Boy’s last night. Milton managed to keep us in there, Mota, Leach, and Troncoso kept the game intact. We then proceeded to turn the table, and got to Lidge, with help from an error to Feliz. We did what we needed to do to get to that point and we did what it took to end the game on a high note. And what a high note it was, Andre being mobbed by his teammates. Man that was some celebration. Way to go Dodgers!!!!
In remembrance of D-Day and all the brave men who stormed the shores of Normandy, I salute you. May we always remember the one’s who came before us and always cherish the one’s who will come after.
We got some Mojo back, Lets keep on keep’n on Boy’s!!!!
GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Enjoy the game and your Saturday everyone……:-)

Good morning. Got home late last night from the game, another example of why fans should not leave early! The Dodgers were fortunate to even be in the game by the ninth inning and the Phillies have to be kicking themselves for letting that one get away. How would you like to be a Phillie fan who could not stay up late last night who finds out this morning not only did his team lose but how it happened? The good luck charm for the Dodgers is when Broxton comes into a game with the score tied or behind by a run. He is 6-0 and two of those wins resulted from his two blown saves. By the way, I sat in front of a Phillie fan all decked out in his gear. He was great the whole game, cheering on his team the way a good fan does but not trying to talk any smack. In fact, we really did not talk to him until after the game. He gave me a high five and congrats while reminding me who won the World Series last year. I told him that was great, his team deserved it but this was a new season and both teams look good this season.

I don’t normally sit on the field level but my wife bought seats from someone on Craig’s List so we could attend this particular game. The seats were on the field level slightly down the right field line but with a good view of first base. One thing I did notice was that Matt Kemp and the big bruiser Howard are not that much different in size. It sure does not look that way on TV but it does in person. Aother thing I noticed was that the field of view from the lodge level is better but still it is a treat to be so close to the field once in a while.

I’m still buzzin from last nights game, I went absolutely crazy when Dre got that hit. I’m about to head out now to go watch us win again, I was tellin my phillie friend thats out here with me that lidge would blow it and sure enough….GO DODGERS!!

Wohoooooooooooooooooo LA Sparks are playing on TV and I hope they don’t mess up the Staples Center for the tomorrow for the Lakers to play.

Nice story today in the LA Times Calendar section on a new book on our Vin. Here’s the link:


lol at Cooper what’s little lead? They’re up by 22 points.

Interesting lineup changes today. I figured Blake would be sitting hitting 1-21 lifetime against Blanton:

Juan Pierre, LF
Orlando Hudson, 2B
Andre Ethier, RF
Russell Martin, C
James Loney, 1B
Matt Kemp, CF
Mark Loretta, 3B
Juan Castro, SS
Hiroki Kuroda, P

It’s funny how a junk ball pitcher like Blanton could owned Blake.

It’s funny how a junk ball pitcher like Blanton could owned Blake. Damn I want Kemp and Martin to switch spot.

lol at the Philly top 3 all was part of the Dodgers organization but 2 were already drafted by us but one when to college. Nice 1 2 3 innings Kuroda. This is like the 2nd weeks in a rows the Dodgers game on Fox.

Hi ya everbody
Looking forward to more surprises?

lol they should just ibb Ethier and pitch to Martin hahaha.

Sigh Ethier not good against a junk ball pitcher.

Nice blooping one out single Loney.



WB Ethier

Way to go DRE!!! Keep their heads ringin’!!!

And LONEY with a base hit! Ring Ding Dong….

Too bad I’ll probably miss the rest of the game running errands, but I’m glad I saw this… have a good day ITD!

I love Loney stealing base.

Good afternoon everyone
Way to Andre!!!! Nice catch and play from Loney as well, and he’s in scoring position now πŸ™‚

Shut up don’t want to here the Philly having 3 of the last 4 MVP.

sob wtf they showing Stairs homerun and he should’ve been k’s by Broxton and well there goes the no hitter.

Andre is definitely coming out of it and it seems that Mattingly’s advice is paying off, so that’s good to see.

Damn ex Giants broke his no hitter come on dp now.

Damn it Kuroda come on.

O Dog!!!! And Loney has been EXCELLENT today!

hahaha nice play Odog and Loney.

It good to put a zero up there on the scoreboard the inning after we score, nice going KURODA.

Man, Runs are hard to come by, lately eh?

Damn that had triple or maybe an inside the park homerun written all of that one.


Damn I missed Piazza in an Dodgers uniform.

Now that was a BIG 0 on the scoreboard.
And KURODA is showing some fatigue, it should be all for him.
Great clutch pitching.

KEMP was not up there to walk, he had to take a swing, we need runs. He hit it good, just short of the wall.


lol at Karros 40 wins and 40 saves seriously but it won’t happen.

Damn why did that have to hit Belisario.

Good afternoon ITD’ers.
Just in from a morning shift to watch the rest of the game.
This is where we need a K Belly.

Wow 4 Dodgers came out there to try to catch that.

Nice play O-Dog & pitching Belly!!
Let’s get Stairs…

Well that’s a bummer.


Let’s respond & get those back.
Bottom of the order coming up. Remember we are never out of it!
Go Blue!!
Bring the Ring to LA in 2009!!!

Tough on Belisario who’s been great, But MATT STAIRS again.

Got to get some runs on the board, NOW.

Hello there Joe & Shad. I hope you guys are having a nice day!

Atta boy!!!
Come on rook… let’s get him over & around…

Come on Juan. Make it happen!

Hi Collie let’s go Pierre let’s killed Romero again.

That’s was a walk

fk Castro.

Well isn’t that just dandy.

Well isn’t that just dandy.

Damn it odog better get a hit.

Way to go Juan.
Let’s O-Dog! You can do this!

SOB what the hell was you thinking Castro?

Without that gaff on the bases we’d be up by 1.
Oh well. Let’s shut them down this inning and then get some more!

That base running gaffe by Castro was costly.

He wasn’t Shad.

I was looking for surprises in this game and we’re sure getting them, –but the wrong kind.

GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!

hmmmm Karros what about the 2 unearned runs from Hudson in the 4th?

Damn Loretta I hate long throw especially when you just need to tag the base to get the last out.

Another nice inning pitched by THE COOL ONE.

Let’s get it started Dre!!

I wish Manny was back.

Good patience Dre.
Okay Russ. It’s you turn.


Now would be a good time for Russell’s first hr of the season.

Nice walk Ethier 2 walk’s and 2 k’s. You don’t like to have a day like that.

He has a homerun, a walk and 2 k’s, not 2 walks.

Bring in Park lol

Bring in Park lol

Well BCG & D4 have made an entrance!
At least Martin went to RF.
Come on Big Game James.

How are ya collie, I’ve been here a while I keep falling asleep for real short periods today. LOL!!!

BCG – I agree about Martin, but I’m thinking at this point anytime would be a good time for Martin’s first HR.

Oh yeah how can I forget that lol

LOL D4! I hear ya. I didn’t get to bed until late as I was jazzed about the W. Then I had to be at work early today. I have to go back tonight to do some training with my crew. So long lunch to watch the last 3 innings of the game. Woo Hoo!!

I was just talking about the last 4 ab’s.

This feels like an NLCS.

Sigh I thought he had 2 walks I must had miss counted.

Well to win this we’ll have to have a bit of a repeat of last nights heroics.

Glad ya get the long lunch collie :
LETS GO BOY’S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was really hoping Matt could drive one. Oh well, time for some more bottom of the 9th heroics. I really like Martin and am sure he’ll come around, but I would not have batted him clean up today. I think it just made him press more than he is. I think it relaxed Andre to be out of that spot for a bit.

Here’s Do or Die again folks.


Go Blue!!!!!

RAFFY WAKIN’ UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Woooooooo Hooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, I was questioning batting Raffy for Castro since Castro’s been hitting better lately, but shows you what I know, lol!! C’mon Beard, go yard!


Good call by Joe to bat Raffy. See, He does know what he’s doing most of the time.

Raffyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy been so long since you hit a homerun

I had Blake and Furcal tell you what I know lol.

It has been a long time for him, Shad, and he picked the perfect time to launch one.

Let’s go Juan!!!
Or not…

Damn, and I gotta head for work @ 5…. gonna hate missing the end of this one

Free baseball!

We are alive.

It would be sweet if Brox could get his 7th W.

Hello All….OMG I cannot believe that RAFFY hit a homerun….GOOOOO DODGERS!. I am sooooo happy that ANDRE is back!
And tomorrow I’ll be at the game with my kids. Kids are in Little League and they will have the Little League parade right before the game at Dodgers Stadium! We are so excited and we hope that they get to meet some of the players.

Come on Ox one more k’s

Hello there NSB. I’m with you but I’m going in at 6:00. I was going to hit the gym before that but oh well. Another day of being heavier than Wifey would probably like!

I’m gonna be cutting it close today, Collie, heheheh


Hey, it worked last night!! Winning time!
Q. In Hawaiian, does it take more than three words to say ‘I Love You’?
A. Vincent Price: No, you can say it with a pineapple and a twenty.

O-DAWG Showing up Jane Eyre!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Keep it going Kali.
Way to go O-Dog!!
Come on Dre… Do it!!!

Dre does it again…

It would be huge for Russ to come through now. I hope he does.

Everyday Dre!
Come on Russ… Line one to right.

He’ll miss getting 2 down & then get a hit to win it!

Let’s go Dodgers!!!!
Let’s go Martin!!!!

Martin should’ve be bench for the next 3 games seriously.

Not really Karros and Loney would’ve been ibb to loaded the bases to set up the dp.

Well, with that pitching change, I’ll have to call it a day. Hope there’s good news by the time I get to work.

Easier said then done but he has to be protecting the plate there. He kept looking for an inside pitch to pull. The outside of the plate has a strike zone as well. Just poke it to the right Russ!!!!

OK, collie, one more.
Q. According to Ann Landers, what are two things you should never do in bed?
A. Paul Lynde: Point and laugh.
Everyone send Kemp your psychic energy.

To bad all Lonet hit wasn’t in risp

To bad all Loney hit wasn’t in risp

I love seeing Mary Hart staying to the end!
Send us home happy Kempers!!!!

and the beat goes on.

According to Gameday that was a ball…
Interesting to hear the umpire swear there.

Still don’t understand why they didn’t have Martin bunt. Loney’s fly would have scored the winning run if he had moved the runners over.

Guess psychic energy isn’t nearly so powerful as Russell Martin maybe having a clue. Tell me again why Joe batted him in the middle of the order?!??!?!?!

Let’s see if we got the last year Wade. Damn that scare me big time.

BCG — They would of then walked Loney.
They were talking about it and said he has only had 1 sacrifice in his career. He squared on the 1st pitch but didn’t look very good on the attempt, so I think it was taken off.

Manual would had ibb Loney to set up the dp.

Hopefully after today Kali Joe will now move him down.
Me to Shad. πŸ™‚

To coin an old saying from my dad, Martin isn’t worth the powder to blow him to hell. Can’t bunt, can’t hit, can’t even take the bat off his shoulder.

At least we’ll get Ausmus tomorrow.

Damn I missed this Wade hopefully he’s back.

Enchanted. Welcome home!

WADE looked better than he’s been in a while.

It might be the ghost of Jones. Maybe Russ has his locker from last year???


Damn that Victorino.

This is why we don’t need the extra pitcher.

enchanted, where were you for all the fun last night?

The Ghost Of Davey Jones locker is now the Ghost of Andru Jones locker…
It would work seeing as Russ was our Captain.
Here is an interesting tidbit on that note.

Should had let’s Broxton pitch 2 innings.

I miss the last year Durbin that’s we owned.

Let’s see if Wade have another good inning in him.

It looks as if Martin has drowned. At least his bat has. Our Captain is at the bottom of the sea right now.
I know he will rise… eventually.

LET’S GO CORY keep up the good work.
I repeat— it’s like an NLCS

Thanks Collie!

Snoozin’ Kahli!!!

I also believe the offense started going in the tank when Pierre went back to slappy mode in the leadoff position. No excuses for the rest of them, but when your leadoff guy is hitting about .200 for a week, and your 4-5 guy is worthless, you don’t tend to generate a lot of offense.

Were with you Wade!!

Dang Martin should had that one.

Let’s bang!!!!

Last year Wade is back for nowl ol

Wade ERA is slowing down to 4.64 from 5.12.

I agree E. I really think he needs to go to the 9 spot and put Ferk in leadoff. That might solve 2 slumps in one move. Then O-Dog & Dre. Martin down to 7th.
Torre needs to shake something up. 2 runs both on solo shots through 11 innings needs to change. This isn’t a 1 or 2 game issue. Not panic time but time to change some things up IMO.
Let’s go O-Dog!


Come on Dre!
Make me a happy man!

dang forgot to click the spacebar and hit submit to fast.

Game winner WB Ethier.


Oh, wow!!!! Dre, way to go!!!!!


You sigh the song begins and I hear violins
It’s mag,,,,,,,,,

I’m a happy man.

Funny Wally I was about to say the same thing!!!!

Everybody BOUNCE!!!!!!

SON-OF- A -B@#*H



Wally is home now 2!
What a great game. 2 in a row from the Phils in nice.

So much for little ball…3 solo shots! Not the best recipe for success, but good enough for this lazy Saturday afternoon!!!!!!

O HAPPY DRE!!!!!!!

Better hope Wolf pitches deep tomorrow – bully’s taxed. All we got is Weaver and the kid Schlichting.

My hopes are rising.

Thanks god they won this and save Castro butt for that mistake.

So glad he’s come around before Manny comes back so no one will say it’s because of Manny. Don’t get me wrong, I know Manny makes everyone around him better, but Andre was a quallity hitter before Manny came as Karros also pointed out today, so it’s great to see him fight his way out of it on his own.

YA gotta have heart, they always say.

Gotta run…..Have a great evening everyone πŸ™‚
WAY TO GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BRING THE RING TO L.A. IN 2009!!!!!!!!
Good game all around, Kuroda to Wade…RAFFY πŸ™‚ ANDRE:))

What’s impressive is that they’re not playing good ball right now and they’re still winning.

I was going to say something nasty after Martin’s last at bat, but I see that enchanted already did earlier on. Besides, I can see from Martin’s face that he’s as hard on himself as anybody could be. So, what’s the point. It’s great that we won, and I love how we won it, and I’m glad who won it for us. The whole team really fought this one. I would only plead that Joe not put Martin in a critical position in the lineup until he’s had a chance to recover at least some of his old form. I’ve said that he looks burned out, but come on, Russ, get back up and fight.

lol and maybe Mota and Leach

Twin sons of different mothers, my brother!!!!

This one’s for Nelly!!!! Way to go Andre!!!!

Take care all. I’m out to. Gotta get going to work!
Go Blue!
Way to show some muscle and great pitching/D on national TV.

Yep Shad, Bellisario and Castro should be buying the steaks tonight!!!!

I’m really happy Wade got the victory too. He looked like his old self from last season today. Great to see.

I had a birthday party for my grandson here today but I did have get to watch the game and once again, THANK-YOU ANDRE FOR PROVING THAT WE ETHIERAHOLICS WERE RIGHT ABOUT YOU ALL ALONG!!! EVERYDAY DRE IS BACK IN A BIG WAY!!!!!!

See Ya Colly!!!

it’s so impossible to dislike this scrappy little team.. they are so entertaining and so amazing.. andre is just incredible.. two walkoffs in two days.. the pitching today was amazing.. lidge blew two saves in two days.. all this will boost our confidence even more.. go blue!!

this game really had it all.. great pitching.. some really incredible defensive plays.. a pinch hit game tying bomb in the 9th.. and a walk off bomb in extras.. WOW

15 come from behind wins is just tremendous

Another great team win.
I can’t help but wonder what’s up with Martin. His defense is good, but has lapses, and fails to get the job done with some key at bats. Does not seem to be quite the same guy. Joe, and we, can afford to be patient. What’s the alternative? I think he’ll get it cranked up and rolling again.

See you all later. I still can’t believe they pulled another one out. Go Dodgers!

I hope to god that they at least learned one thing from this game. Don’t pitch to Stairs dammit’!!!! That son of a gun has our number.

If we face these guys again in October and they pitch to Stairs, I will be peeved, to say the least.

Hey, guys and gals, new thread!

what songs were played at the i love 80s night?
