Independence Day at Dodger Stadium

There are only 24 hours left on arguably the best ticket offer of the year at Dodger Stadium – on July 4, you can catch a ballgame and the city’s best fireworks show for just $4 on the Reserve Level, $14 on Loge and $24 on the Field Level. That’s a $130 ticket for $24, a $110 ticket for $14 and a $45 ticket for $4, but the sale ends Monday morning at 9 a.m.

Oh, and you can watch the fireworks show from the outfield grass, as always.

For tickets, visit this link and use the promo code July4

We know a lot of people make their Independence Day weekend plans in advance, so this sale comes a few weeks before the actual game. Hope to see many of you at Dodger Stadium to celebrate on July 4.


Thanks for the new thread, Josh.
I’m hoping we can win today and get a split for our road trip. I’m hopful too, that Rubby won’t get the Coors Field bombardment. Put a decent lineup out there, Donnie to give us a fighting chance.

Great advance ticket sale. Obviously Frank is trying to raise money for the payroll.
Resist the giveaway, fans! EMPTY SEATS is what we need this coming week, and maybe Frank can be sunk before Independence Day. Wouldn’t an Independence Day from Frank be Great!

Have to admit, sounds pretty desperate doesn’t it bear?

Hell of a promotion. He must be very desperate. C’mon fans, boycott. We’ve got him on the ropes. Hope Judge Gordon delivers the knockout blow on the 22nd. Go Away Frank.

Here is todays lineup:
Carroll, ss
Miles, 2b
Dre, rf
Matt, cf
Loweeney, 1b
Ughribe, 3b
Barajas, c
Oeljen, lf
Rubby, p

I have a feeling it’s going to be a Dre Day 😉

LOL….Carroll & Miles….the Midget Militia!

Rats crap! lol

LOL!! Rodent Feces!!!

Welcome to Coors Field, Rubby!

I love Rubby, and he’ll have his day, but let him have it after Frank and Ned are GONE.
In the meantime, BOYCOTT!
As for Independence Day, go to the beach.

Loweeney & Uribe a hit…..did hell just freeze over?!

lol that doesn’t cut it I wanted HR’s from those 2.

Good afternoon, taking a commercial break from the NASCAR race. I wanted to repost something from late last night.

Wow. Ugly with a capital UG. Of course, it wouldn’t be fair to compare it to the AL with the DH. Ah, let’s look anyway, just to make ourselves feel good about the team Ned’s put together. You know, the one that the owner likes so much.

Oops. Wow again. Not just worst. Astoundingly worse. The only team over .300 in batting average against. The only team over .400 in On Base Percentage. The only team to reach .500 in Slugging Percentage. The only team over .900 in On Base Plus Slugging Percentage.
Putting this horror aside for a moment, it isn’t really surprising that the NL has 4 of the top 5 teams in this catagory. No DH, lower stats, right? But the NL also has 9 of the worst 11.

Hi’Ya Dad!! Thanks!! Pretty amazing(and pathetic numbers)!! We’re not just bad. We’re bad by a wide margin. I guess we need a real closer.

I want to see the 7th and 8th numbers.

Geez tru, your avatars are going downhill. Just sayin’……..

That’s more like it!! Whew!!

LOL…….have to change….I’m beginning to itch 😉

Ahhh….fresh air!

Let’s get some runs, boys!

Holy shit…….James…a grand salami!

That could move him over the Phew line.

Holy Shit!! Loweeney GS!! WTG James!!!

So, is this Blessed Feces?!

Totally!! A freaking miracle!!!


Who the hell are these guys?!

Yeah love 2 out rally.

lol Did Loney hit a GS? I think espn and yahoo are wrong.

He sure did, Shad!

Rox defense (or lack thereof) opened the door, and Loney made a grand entrance.

Go figure Carroll and Miles is 0/2 and Loney and Uribe is 2/2.
Loney was like 43 7 2 0 1 5 3 8 0 1 .163 .234 .279 .513

In Loney 59 career homeruns that was his 12th against the Rockies.

Holy crap Tommy Hanson the Braves SP have 14 k’s in 7 innings and I guess Liriano lost his prefect game/shutout..

Nice pitching, Rubby.

lol IBB and a WP at the same time? That seem so rare and glad he got out of his own mess.

Whew! Kemp continues to tear it up!

I guess no manager give a crap about ibb Kemp on purpose with no out or leading off.

lol Loney and Uribe seem to be back to normal now.

Yeah Barajas

Lil nubber….Vinny 😉

Come on Loney make them pay again.

Well dang I knew Loney could get another hit with risp.

oops couldn’t

Sure hope that whatever is wrong with Rubby is very minor.

I sure hope they get Rubby’s finger fixed. Sounds like a nerve issue. The last thing this team needs is another pitcher going on the DL. . .

Great! You’re right…we don’t need another pitcher on the DL (at least, not Rubby!)

Ruh Roh! Tron-toasto!

Even worse – Andre’s out in another of Mattingly’s dumb moves. Cranio-rectal inversion decision indeed.

Exactly what I was thinking! Donnie makes a lot of those damn decisions.

I don’t care whther Dre is hitting or not, at Coors, you need his defense and arm!

I have a feeling he will regret this – mightily.

It was only the 6th inning! No reason to take Dre out!

Sigh hope he’s ok and let’s go Troncoso.

Well it look like is Redding time to be up than lol

Wow Gwynn surely is a good bunter and I hope Gordon was watching.

I hate teams helping us with those errors.

It’s a great opportunity to score, and at this point, I think the team is grateful to have them.

Heh, heh, heh… Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. This team needs all the help it can get.

Look at them as if they are gifts. . .Sometimes they need all the help they can get.

I don’t mind Troncoso get an AB’s here just hope he don’t give the some of those runs back.

Dang I wrote that wrong but you guys know what I mean?

On a non-baseball note, I want to nominate trublu4ever for the Anthony Weiner Award in internet communication skills.

I second the nomination!!

Good grief glad for those extra runs.

Whew – good catch Tronco! Sure was lucky there.

Screw you DONNIE……..and F*ck you NED!

Told you taking Dre out in the 6th BIG MISTAKE! Who the hell are you going to use if you need a pinch hitter!

Navarro!!! LMAO!!!

Let freedom ring!!!

Unf*ckingbelievable! Same shit every day!

Ooh, ooh, that smell, the pile is a steamin’….

It’s getting ridiculous. This team needs a new script writer that improves the bullpen because it’s obvious the coaching sure ain’t doing it.

That’s my standard reply when asked how I’m doing….S.S.D.D!! LOL
Same shit, different day!

So, this is the crap Frankie wants you to spend your hard earned money on,..,,yea, right…stay home you fools!

The Rockies should play there home game some where else.

Oh my God, I’ve turned into Bear! 😉

That might be a good thing lol.

Wow – we may have to cue the Loney song again.

What is this Uribe and Loney is still hitting?

What is this Uribe and Loney is still hitting? How many HR’s have Barajas hit with runners on bases?

Troncoso had good career numbers vs Colorado and MacDougal career numbers are horrible vs them.

Is it me or does MacDougal pitch well with no runners on bases?

See….Dre would have been up now!

I can’t wait to here Donny interview on taking Ethier out of the game earlier.

Donnie is an idiot!

Damn TG got caught.

A 3 run lead might not be enough.

Wow…2 up, 2 down!

Uh, oh….now to get the 3rd out…that’s the problem

Damn it fudge.

I hate ball that goes deep especially from someone name Cargo.

It’s never easy, is it?

Still looking for that elusive third out.

“And of course… this game couldn’t possibly end without the tying run at the plate.” – Vin Scully, 45 seconds ago.

Never a dull bottom of the 9th at Coors.

Wonderful…Elbert has to get the third out. I don’t know how much longer I can take this BP implosion….day after day!

Woo_Hoo, Loney passes Phew!!

Phew 259/324/304/628
Loney 253/303/335/638

Thank God…it’s finally over!

Finally – we split, hallelujah!

Dang I trust Hawksworth but gosh Coors is sill a joke.

Well, a .500 road trip is better than I expected!
Hope they do better on the homestand. . .

We should’ve had been 3-1 and how many different Dodgers relievers recorded at least 1 save this season? I really wanted Hawkworth to get one.


lol these nba final are good and just had a scuffle.

WTG Mavs Kidd and Dirk deserve it and Marion for knocking out the Lakers when he was a Suns players 2 years in a rows.

So, does James get rid if his Loweeny title the next 24 hours?

Yes!! And I hope its for more than 24 hours. By the way, Uribum is below the Phew line.
Phew 259/324/304/628
Uribum 224/291/327/618

That doesn’t surprise me about Uribe, and I hope James can get himself out of the Loweeny title for good

Yep for now but I didn’t even realize Uribe had a stole bases to.


• RHP Rubby De La Rosa(notes) left Sunday’s game with a cramp in his right forearm that led to a cramp in his pointer finger. The Dodgers don’t think it’s serious and he should be able to make his next start. If he can’t, the Dodgers have an off day Thursday, so they could skip him, and not need a fifth starter again until a week from Tuesday.

• LHP Ted Lilly(notes) collected his first hit and stolen base of the season (on a head-first dive) in the third inning Saturday. In the fifth, with two runners on base and nobody out, No. 8 hitter Tony Gwynn Jr.(notes) attempted a sacrifice bunt. No, they weren’t suddenly bunting to set up Lilly, who had snapped an 0-for-41 hitting streak with his single. Third-base coach Tim Wallach came down to talk with Gwynn, who missed a sign. Gwynn then swung away and flied out. Lilly allowed a run in five innings, and picked up the victory to even his record at 5-5.

• 3B Casey Blake (pinched nerve in neck) was out of the starting lineup the past two days. Blake came off the bench and delivered a three-run double Saturday in the fifth inning, and he grounded out as a pinch hitter Sunday. He was hurt while fielding a bunt in the fifth inning Friday, and he noticed he didn’t have much range of motion when in the batter’s box his next at-bat.

• RHP Kenley Jansen(notes) (right shoulder inflammation) pitched two clean innings for Class AA Chattanooga in a rehab outing Saturday, striking out two. Jansen faced nine hitters in two games, retired them all, and struck out five. Jansen is eligible to be activated from the disabled list Monday, but the Dodgers would prefer giving him another two-inning rehab game. It will depend on how much the bullpen is used Sunday.

• LHP Hong-Chih Kuo(notes) struck out all three batters he faced Saturday for Class A Rancho Cucamonga in his second rehab outing as he tries to fight back from an anxiety disorder that put him on the disabled list. Kuo retired six of seven batters in two games.

• C Hector Gimenez(notes) was activated from the 60-day disabled list, cleared waivers, was outrighted and accepted an assignment to Class AA Chattanooga. Including his rehab games for Chattanooga, Gimenez was hitting .353/.450/.588 after six games.

• INF Aaron Miles drew a walk in the sixth inning Saturday, his first in 119 plate appearances, dating back to April 27. With a four-hit night, it raised his average to .301, but his on-base percentage is just .314 because of the infrequent walks.

By The Numbers: 23—Rows cleared by CF Matt Kemp in his pinch-hit home run June 10 at Coors Field. Kemp’s home run cleared all 23 rows of the left-field seats, took one bounce, and quickly skipped into the Rockies players’ parking lot. The ball was estimated to travel 458 feet, going 111.4 mph off the bat at a 31-degree angle.

Oh heavy sigh. Very sad and frustrating day. Another 3 weeks of waiting. Most people still believe Frank will be gone eventually and Bud is just being compliant with the Bankruptcy court to further get his case in order. I really don’t know if I can continue to invest my time and heart into the Dodgers if McBroke is allowed to remain as the owner. I think if he does remain as the Dodger owner, once Kemp, Ethier, and Kersh are gone, I will be also.

Nothing new to us. We all knew we were in deep poop!

Yep!! Well Frank said early on that his financial plan was to cut player payroll and increase revenue by raising ticket, concession, and parking prices. Well, he managed to do that except for Ned wasting so much money on Manny, Andruw, Phew, Schidt, etc… Also, that he thinks this is a very, very good team and if money was no issue, these are the type of players he would want and be happy with. It is very clear that if Frank keeps the team, the Dodgers will continue to decline and will not be relevent again in my lifetime.

This process could be a long & painfull one. Prolonging the fans suffering stinks. I was hoping this mess would be cleared up by the all star break. McCrook just can’t get out of this picture fast enough for me. .:-(
I hope the hit parade continues for Lilly tonight.
Sure seemed like the whole team had to vent off alot of steam last night exploding for all those hits & runs. Maybe playing home at the ravine is a sad distraction these days.

Hi’Ya VL. He can’t be gone soon enough for me. I was hoping for today.

The fans will NOT support the team if Frank keeps control. If we all think the attendance is way down now, just wait and see what will happen if McCrook keeps this team.

I agree Trumom. If he keeps the team and continues to run it like he has, the attendance will continue to decline rapidly.

At first I didn’t think the fans would stay away but, they are changing their tune now….thank goodness!

Looks like Frank will still be in the picture when the next homestand comes around. You’re so right about the attendance dropping. I have a feeling it will be DRASTIC! Fans are fed up, and should stay away.

Got the radio broadcast on. Where’s Charlie?

Who cares. LOL!!

It is refreshing not having to listen to his futile attempts at humor. . 🙂

I’m watching the feed out of Minnesota. You should be glad you’re not listening to Charlie 😉

Ugh….Lilly looks like he is throwing batting practice!

Yep, he’s looking more like Lilly Munster than a major league pitcher.

LMAO….Lilly Munster!

Childhood memories. I always enjoyed the Munsters show. Addams Family was funny too. Grandpa & Uncle Fester were great!


Way to go Casey! Geez!!!!

Casey looks terrible out there too!

It just is not in Frank McCourt’s nature to give up. This bankruptcy filing did not come out of thin air; he had to be working on this for quite some time to get the financing deal in place. It is refreshing to read MLB’s response trashing the McCourt’s in plain English and in a public forum. Let the battle begin.

Whoever those guys were who played last night decided to not show up tonight so far . . . .

New thread gang.
