    Will E.Y. Jr. become a Dodger nemises like his dad was? At least the Dodgers picked him off his first two times on base.

  2. truebluewill

    Hi everyone ~ Just turned the game on. Nice blast by DRE. Love having Kemp & Either back to back in the order. Very imperative. Don’t stop at two runs, pour it on Dodgers.

  3. oldbrooklynfan

    I’ll repeat what I said on the other thread.
    How come MLB.TV is not as good this year as it was before.
    Mine keeps getting worse.

  4. truebluewill

    I don’t understand why the Dodgers do this. They come out like gang busters in the first, and now look like meek little lambs. Come on get aggressive, get mad, kick some butt.

  5. nellyjune

    My Loney has a first name,
    It’s J-A-M-E-S
    My Loney has a second name,
    It’s L-O-N-E-Y
    I love to watch him every day
    And if you ask me why I’ll say
    ‘Cause James Loney has a way
    With H-I-T-T-I-N-G!

    You know Furcal don’t really produce much the 1st year of his contract but anyway I’m also surprise he’s staying healthy all year but to bad his defense been brutal with those 14 errors.

  7. shad80

    Yep I still think we could had improve last year win totals if Furcal was still healthy. Nice prefect inning there Wolf.

  8. shad80

    I know that why I said he can’t but he can always borrow Castro glove. You had some old time pitchers that can throw right or left handed and the Yankees have one in the farm system that can thrown from both hand.

  9. oldbrooklynfan

    Furcal’s only problem this year is his hitting, he’s below the .260 mark along with Martin.
    They are the only two in the starting lineup, that low.

  10. truebluewill

    I think everyone would agree so far down the stretch Wolf is becoming our ace. I hope he can keep it up the rest of the way.

  11. bluecrewgirl

    Hey everyone. Good to see the offense score some runs. Wolf has really been great lately. Andre is really on a roll. He’s up to .290 now. We knew, he’d get there, right Nelly and trublu? Though I’m not a fan of Joe’s pitching staff management, I have to give him credit for standing behind his players this season when they’ve been struggling. I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop and Andre to get thrown under the bus when he was struggling in May, but Joe really did stand by him and support him and it has paid off.

  12. shad80

    I guess that troll that wanted Pierre to played over Ethier is eating his words tonight but that fool still posting on the main Dodgers forum.

  13. shad80

    Oh god here we go again come on Broxton I know you might be rusty with your 1st hold against the Cubs on Saturday

  14. koufax1963

    HI ITD,
    Just got in to see this game. Great! Loney redemption
    The james gang (mcdonald and loney) debacle is a faint memory.
    Wish hudson just didnt get that hit and sherrill stay in, save Brox for tomorrow.
    Go Dodgers ! Im passing the flask!

  15. shad80

    I can’t believe we played all these game and still we haven’t face the Pirates yet. How can Selig do this?

  16. bluecrewgirl

    I like the games on Prime Ticket better, because we get the Dodgers Live pregame and postgame shows and I like to see all the player interviews and the commentaries.

  17. mdavis1892@yahoo.com

    2 things really bothered me about tonights game.

    1) why in the world does torre not use sherill or broxton in last nights extra inning, one run game, but he does in the game where we’ve had a 5 run lead since the 4th inning? it doesnt make sense to me.you put in mcodnald who walks a guy,cant make a play on a bunt,and in the end gives up the game winning run for the rockies.mcdoanlds a rookie who hasnt been consciestent yet sherill and broxton have experience as a closer.dont understand the man sometimes.

    2)the rockies announcers.it seems vin scully is one of the only announcers that doesnt act sound like a die hard fan for one side or the other.i guess we’re just blessed to be able to have such a professonal to listen to.

    but i must say on a positive note, eithier stepped up today and wolf keeps rolling with very good starts.hopefully padilla can have a solid dodgers debut tomorrow afternoon.

  18. Dodger4life

    WINNERS!!!!!
    .
    WAY TO GO DODGERS!!!!!
    KEEP ON KEEP’N ON!!!!
    BRING THE RING TO THE DODGERS IN 2009!!!!!

  19. nellyjune

    bluecrewgirl – It was great seeing James get that homerun. Andre’s were awesome, but it’s come to be expected from Andre now, whereas James’ it was more of a sign of maybe he’s figured it out. Andre’s going to finish out this regular season with some incredible numbers. A possible 30+ HR, 40+ 2B, 100+ RBI season is his for the taking.

  20. kpookiemon

    Dodgers’ MVP steps up big time tonight. Ethier’s shoulders must be getting heavy from carrying this current collection of players.

  21. shad80

    SPLITS G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB SO SB CS AVG OBP SLG OPS
    Season 125 472 76 137 33 3 27 87 57 90 5 3 .290 .376 .544 .920

    Projected 160 604 97 175 42 4 35 111 73 115 6 4 .290 .376 .544 .920

    I think if Ethier was hitting lefty as a .300 clip this year he would have a projected of 40 homeruns and 125 rbi’s.

  22. bluecrewgirl

    Nelly, I just hope and pray the when Andre is no longer under the Dodger’s control that they pay him the big bucks and lock him into the Dodger fold with a mult-year contract.

  23. bluecrewgirl

    Shad, he does need to figure out why he’s had recent struggles against lefties because if he does, the sky’s the limit for him. He never had issues with them until recently. so I think it’s just a matter of making an adjustment. It was mentioned in his Before the Bigs that his dad used to pitch batting practice to him left handed so he’d be able to hit lefties. Maybe his dad needs to come out to CA for some batting practice sessions, lol.

  24. colliethec

    It sure is nice to have a W tonight!
    .
    That game was what we saw earlier in the year.
    .
    Every Dy Dre being Every Day Dre. Wolf being a winner. & Big Game James making a difference. Hopefully that will get James rolling a little.
    .
    I didn’t like seeing 4 dp’s but 1 of them was during a double steal so I’m okay with that. 1 was with Loney running from 1st, so I was glad to see Torre pushing the envelope. I think he needs to do this a little more and take it to the other team.
    .
    Now they need to get the game tomorrow & get on a roll & get a little bit of that swagger back.
    .
    Molina just hit a pinch hit 3 run HR against the DB’s closer with 2 outs in the 8th to give them a 4-3 lead. Wow!

  25. nellyjune

    I don’t think Andre’s bad May had anything to do with Manny and his suspension. It was a slump just like they all have had and some have yet to come out of.

    God damn it. You don’t want to help us Giants and you beatr the lowly dback. I still think Bengie is on ped.

  28. colliethec

    Not sure Nelly. I think he knows they were probably going to pull him from their rotation and doesn’t want to go to the bully.
    .
    Stupid since he’ll loose out on $$$ as well as they are a potential playoff team.
    .
    My guess… selfish. He wants to be a starter for another team other than a bullpen guy for the team.
    .
    That or a personal issue.
    .
    He has now been officially released.

  29. nellyjune

    Let’s do the Time Warp again. Sorry Collie…………I thought this issue was over with………..I guess not.

  30. nellyjune

    Andre’s toe was definitely a factor bluecrewgirl. Andre has always claimed he works on balance in his hitting, and if your toe is bothering you, you are not going to feel balanced at all.

  31. nellyjune

    Hey Collie!! Do you want the blog fixed. I think the whole Tech Crew needs to be replaced. As Beav………………….I mean enchanted………………I mean brownpaper……………………I mean justplaindisgusted would say…………..Tech Crew – Outta Here!!!!!!!!!

  32. bluecrewgirl

    Nelly, I think his struggles in May had a lot more to do with the spring training toe injury than anything else. I noticed him wince every time he would slide into a base back then and he was not quite as quick getting to balls in the outfield during that time period either. He doesn’t seem to be bothered by in now. Toe injuries can be tough in any sport. Brox’s toe injury definitely had a negative effect on him too.

    It does still seem to happen a lot. My comment about Andre’s toe shows 10:18 and Nelly’s response shows 10:12.

    If you want the blog fixed, it’d probably be best to leave a message at the flagship site: http://mlblogs.mlblogs.com .

    I’d imagine Josh is pretty busy with the day-to-day business of being a VP of broadcasting and communications, though we know he’d help us out any way he can.

    The Flagship site is where you might be in closest contact with someone who deals with the entire blogging network, not just this particular blog. And I’d imagine that many blogs are going through this right now, though few blogs have the readership and amount of commentators as this one.

    And remember: You catch more flies with honey than vinegar 🙂

    Josh:

    Has Torre decided on a starting pitcher for Thursday’s game?

    I thought he had settled on Padilla, but maybe not?

  45. knouffbrock@frontiernet.net

    I think it’ll be Mac
    *
    You can never have to much pitching, but we may have enough. Might even get a boost from Padilla. If we could get a couple of hitters going again we’ll roll right on into the post season. Torre’s patience paid off with Ethier, maybe it will pay off with some others, specifically Furcal. We’ve got an interesting 5-6 weeks of the season to go.

    Bluecrewgirl,
    His dad is often at the games. The first time I talk to him he asked me “Where is your 70’s wig?” I did not know I was talking to Andre’s dad. My friends and I told him about our adventures in Arizona with the traffic tickets we got there during Spring Training so he was giving us some pointers. We ran into him at Wrigley Field also. He seems like a very down to earth person.

    Per Ken Gurick at http://kengurnick.mlblogs.com/
    To make room for Thursday starting pitcher Vicente Padilla on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers placed Jason Schmidt on the 60-day disabled list, effectively ending his tenure with the club. Schmidt is in the final season of a three-year deal and has hinted he will retire. He went 2-2 in four starts last month, but was placed on the disabled list with recurring shoulder problems. In three seasons with the Dodgers he won a total of three games and had two shoulder operations. The Dodgers also optioned infielder Tony Abreu to Triple-A and he is expected to return Sept. 1 when rosters expand. — Ken Gurnick

    Good Bye, Schidt! It’s been miserable having you here.
    Please take the A-holes Ned and Conte with you.
