Going for the record…

A win tonight would give us the best home start in National League history…here’s the crew that’s looking to do it.

Furcal, SS

Hudson, 2B

Manny, LF

Ethier, RF

Loney, 1B

Martin, C

Kemp, CF

Blake, 3B

Stults, P


  1. enchantedbeaver

    Elated to see Manny back in there. I didn’t want it to be another one of Conte’s “it’s nothing that concerns us” to day-to-day to DL to out for the season injuries.

  2. trublu4ever

    Let’s get the record tonight Dodgers! Everyone is going to have a great game! GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. bluesplash09

    Well the cubs are beating the giants right now 3-0 so tonite is off to a good start

    Btw, we started today with the best record in all of baseball…do sumthin! GO DODGERS!!

  4. dodge1612

    martin isnt to high, he went 3-4 saturday night so maybe hes done with his slump… well see… I want to see 11-0 at home tonight… were the best team in baseball, this is fun.

  5. nellyjune

    Good Evening ITD readers and writers!!!!! Beautiful lineup tonight. Let’s go for that record boys!!!

    dodge1612 – It is great seeing you on ITD 🙂

    from previous thread: Dodgereric – I am doubting you will be working for Frank anytime soon, but thanks for clearing up any misconceptions. Very nice post 🙂

  6. bluecrewgirl

    Hey everyone. It must be a beautiful night at the stadium, perfect weather for baseball. Hope they make it 11 in a row at home.

  7. bluecrewgirl

    Back to back homers, way to start it out! Andre’s happened so fast after Manny’s, at first I thought it was a replay of Manny’s.

  8. enchantedbeaver

    This is Stults’ problem – he can’t shut the other team down when he’s handed a lead. He just doesn’t have the stuff for a major league pitcher.

  9. nellyjune

    Well, that was called being at the right place at the right time…………….and the result………..a triple play.

  10. nellyjune

    Good job in getting out of that inning!!! Let’s get some runs to help because I think we made need them later, if not sooner. GO DODGERS!!!!

  11. dodge1612

    this team is looking way good right now… stults sucks, but whatever he is our four starter… anything we get from him is great… I want 6 innings from him today at leasts.

  12. enchantedbeaver

    I go away for a few minutes and Blake hits into a triple play.

    Well at least we didn’t leave any men on base that inning.

  13. bluecrewgirl

    That sucks. I was hoping Manny would get on and Andre would get a shot at his 1st career grand slam. They’ve lost quite a few opportunities to good defense already in this game.

  14. nellyjune

    uuugghhhh!!! I was thinking the same thing bluecrewgirl 🙂 I bet Doug Davis was very happy too because Andre tatooed that last homerun.

  15. vl4ecc

    Aaaand Dirtball Davis heads for the showers!
    Golden opportunity here. Anyone else think Rauch is soiling his drawers?
    C’mon Manny! Cash em in!!!

  16. nellyjune

    oldbrooklynfan – yes I am. I thought it was my computer, but it sounds like it’s mlb.com then – well, I feel better about that at least.

  17. dodge1612

    I think there scared of the bash brothers… had to pitch to manny and he just misses hitting a grandslam, then they pitch around dre… this offense is amazing

  18. nellyjune

    yes, it was a groggerly Vinny, but it seems to be better for now.

    dodge1612 – I think you are right.

  19. bluecrewgirl

    Nelly, in case you didn’t know, they have a clip on Carne Asada Sunday on Fox Sports. Andre’s been the rock star on Fox this past week, lol.

  20. enchantedbeaver

    Is it me or does Matt seem much more comfortable batting 7th? He really seems to press hitting higher in the order.

  21. vl4ecc

    It was only a matter of time bluecrewgirl. He’s gotta feel like that big old dark cloud is finally breaking up, and he’s starting to see some daylight. A dinger would really get his confidence back.

  22. bluecrewgirl

    Man, Lakers aren’t looking so good tonight. I keep switching back and forth and they’ve been behind the entire game.

  23. vl4ecc

    Mota makes me nervous & gives me the willies. I lost faith in him the last time he was in a Dodger uniform.

  24. enchantedbeaver

    I’m still embarrassed as a fan that Ned would sign a known roider in the first place. Not to mention he’s washed up and has been for years.

  25. shad78

    hey enchanted I think I agree with you on Kemp maybe that why Torre not batting him ahead of Martin.

  26. vl4ecc

    Is it just me, or does Loney seem to be on the outside looking in on the ‘Home Cooking.’ Hope he gets out of this little funk soon.

  27. dodge1612

    what a good night, the gints lose, pads lose, lakers are going to lose and the dodgers are gonna win… I love nights like these

  28. enchantedbeaver

    Starting to be like last year (and all the ones before it) when we load the bases with less than two outs.

  29. bluecrewgirl

    Lakers should be ashamed of their effort, or lack thereof, tonight, Shad. I hope Phil rips them a new one after the game. Bynum has not been good since he came back. I think he’s afraid of getting hurt again, but you can’t play that way.

  30. dodge1612

    look im not a lakers or rockets fan im actually a clippers fan… and one that will admit it, but I do enjoy seeing the lakers lose!!!! and were three outs from NL history!!!!!!!!

  31. oldbrooklynfan

    What’s wrong with you people?
    There’s a record at stake and only 30,000 people in attendance.
    Laid back, laid back (lol)

  32. shad78

    I could understand why he started Bynum but seriously Odom should had started and Gasol to center. I hate to blame the refs but come on Houston 14 Lakers 26 fouls. How the heck Houston has 14 fouls and even with homefield advantage it should be the other way around.

  33. shad78

    Old is becase the 18,997 at the Staples Center. There wasn’t going to be a sellout at DS tonight.

  34. acardona16

    it has been WWAAAAYYYYY to long since I’ve stopped by!!! how is everyone doing this fine evening?? is our Andre not doing a Ethieriffic job!?

  35. bluecrewgirl

    I have no problem admitting it, Nelly, lol. They stunk tonight. I’m a huge fan, but they have a tendency to think they can just kick back sometimes, especially at home, and it comes back to bite them.

  36. nellyjune

    I know you know that bluecrewgirl.

    Yeah Manny!!! Come on Andre!!!

    Hey Acardona – Andre who? LMAO!!!!

  37. acardona16

    hello TruBlu! how are you doing? between school and work I find it hard to come on here even for a few minutes.. I really miss this blog though! Believe it or not I haven’t been to a game yet, BUT I’m going to one of the games against the Angels this month! yay!

  38. nellyjune

    I am doing great!!!! Andre is doing a fabulous job so far this season, along with all of the Dodgers it appears right now.

  39. bluecrewgirl

    Hey, arcardona! Long time no see. Nelly, Andre was talking about how he loves Chorizo in the video clip and he was telling what it is made of. I just looked up what tripe is and I definitely won’t be trying Chorizo. Yuck.

  40. trublu4ever

    I’m doing great, Acardona. I understand how busy you have been. Just drop by from time to time to say hi and then we know you are okay.

  41. nellyjune

    LOL!!! funny bluecrewgirl 🙂 I lived in Memphis. Tripe isn’t anything compared to what they it there.

  42. acardona16

    nelly – absolutely! I’m Lovin the team we have right now! i definately think we’re going all the way this year!! Bring The Ring In 2009 right!?!?!?


    hey there Enchanted! how are you? any new drawings this season??

  43. enchantedbeaver


  44. nellyjune

    enchanted is our songwriter…..northstateblues is our artist. Unless, enchanted, you have been hiding something from us – LOL!!!!

  45. perumike

    Great win tonight, let’s keep it up tomorrow! Should be interesting tomorrow with Weaver, hopefully he does great!! Nite all!

  46. dodgereric

    NL history tonight! Way to go, boys!

    I’ve been watching the Lakers and the Dodgers with the ol’ picture-in-picture and the reason they lost was they were 2 for 18 from 3-point land.

  47. acardona16

    trublu – yeah I usually come on the website about once a day just to check up on things but i never really get to the chance to come on the blog. I’ll put more effort in to saying hi even if its only for a few minutes!! I really do miss this blog 🙂

  48. acardona16

    oh I’m sorry enchanted!! I don’t know why I got you two confused for a second! I meant any new songs this season!? lol

  49. nellyjune

    Good Evening dodgereric!!!! As for the Lakers, that would do it. Can’t miss those three shots like that 🙂

  50. oldbrooklynfan

    The Dodgers are the first National League team to win it’s first 11 games at home.
    We own the National League record.
    Back to 1876.

  51. bluecrewgirl

    One more victory and they tie the major league record. It would be very cool if they break it.

  52. acardona16

    enchanted- cool I’ll have to check them out! I’m probly far behind since I haven’t been on in so long!

  53. oldbrooklynfan

    I’m wondering why Vinnie was just looking to the major league record of 12 by the Tigers in 1911.
    I mean we broke a record.

  54. enchantedbeaver

    Who would’ve thought that Stults would have more wins right now than Kershaw and Wolf combined?

  55. acardona16

    okay guys.. this was short but sweet 🙂 I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow! but I’ll be back on tomorrow night!! GREAT talkin with ya’ll!! have a great night 🙂

    Acardona = Ethieraholic and Doyer fan for life!!
    Congratulations Doyers!!!

  56. nellyjune

    I didn’t think – lol!!

    good night acardona – thanks for stopping by and have a great day tomorrow 🙂

  57. dodgereric

    Yeah, Pierre. He did seem like he was somewhat ignoring the NL mark.

    I just saw yet another replay of Manny’s HR. I noticed that no less than 5 people with those dynamite seats behind home plate had their heads down (probably texting) when Manny made contact on that 3/2 pitch. Geez, if you’re not going to be paying attention, give the seats to someone who will. What a waste of money.

  58. nellyjune

    I know……………..that is so very annoying Eric, to watch those folks back there. Most of them could care less about what is happening in the game. I am sure Frank doesn’t care though, does he?

  59. bluecrewgirl

    I wouldn’t mind have their season tickets. Those seats almost always seem to empty out before the end of a game.

  60. nellyjune

    LOL!!! no kidding!! Well, if the crowd in the dugout club is the only thing we can complain about, the Dodgers are doing pretty good right now, aren’t they. I even got a compliment from Michael tonight saying how we had the best record in the league. This was after his team had lost to the Cubs. Like you said yesterday, our test will come when we play the teams outside of our division, especially on the pitching end.

  61. nellyjune

    bluecrewgirl – my girlfriend and I sat right above that section …the first row in section 1, and it was awesome to be that close. However, I am just has happy being anywhere there.

  62. nellyjune

    I think the only deck I haven’t sat in is the top deck, which I am assuming is an adventure in itself.

  63. dodgereric

    The top deck is fun, at least it used to be. It’s been a while, but it was full of the same people you’d meet in the bleachers. Which is to say, blue collar types like myself. I’ve been fortunate enough to sit in every section, including the old dugout seats once.

    I guess I need to sit in those new orchestra seats now.

  64. nellyjune

    Well, I technically haven’t sat in the dugout club section. I was just one row shy of it though and obviously treated just like a normal fan. I had to go get my own food 🙂

  65. dodgereric

    Well, I finally got my NASCAR stuff out and I’m fighting sleep. Good night nelly and bluecrew! God Bless ya’ll!

  66. nellyjune

    Well, I am glad you got your NASCAR stuff done. I am heading to bed too. Good Night dodgereric and God Bless to you as well 🙂

  67. nellyjune

    Good Night bluecrewgirl – Have a wonderful day tomorrow and I will catch up with you during the game if you are around.

  68. Dodger4life

    Good morning ITD, Dodger Faithful……… Well the Boy’s just continue get it done. 19 – 8 ~ 5.5 games ahead of the Jints, Best record in baseball at this point, and owners of the best home start ever from any NL team. Simply AMAZING and a whole lot of fun!!!!
    Great game last night once again, Back to back homers from Manny and Andre, awesome defense and the pitching pulled together and got it done 🙂
    Tonight we go at it again, Weaver on the mound against Scherzer, lets keep this thing going, Boy’s!!!
    Stay just a little bit longer, this is so much fun!!!!
    Enjoy the Day All 🙂
    GO DODGERS!!!!!!
    BRING THE RING TO L.A. IN 2009!!!!!

  69. trublu4ever

    Good morning Dodger4life and the rest of ITDland. This certainly has been an enjoyable team to watch. Keep up the good work, Dodger Blue! Have a fantastic day everyone!!!

  70. Dodger4life

    Good morning Tru and all……It is our beloved Boy’s in Blue that are doing all the work. Just Taking Care of Buisness!!!!
    GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!!!

  71. thinkingblue

    GREAT GAME LAST NIGHT….sooooo proud of my BOYS IN BLUE. Back to back homeruns!!!!!YEAH!

  72. crzblue2

    Good morning ITD boys & girls!
    I LoVE IT that we have been singing “I LOVE LA” for every home game!
    Weavie: Have a great game guerito!
    Holly wacamole Enchanted! Great job with the ndeschenesesk! Holly history! I also sat in the old dugout seats once.
    Next time you all are in town I’ll go get you so you can meet the Top Deck family inlcluding our unofficial photographer who is sits in the same row I sit. He is always telling the fans “let me do that for you and you can be in the picture.” Saturday I think I will take a cake for one of our “Top Deck family” who just got her Masters.

  73. crzblue2

    I love it Rose!
    Won’t you take me to Dodgertown!
    Won’t you take me to dodgertown!!
    Dodgertown, Dodgertwon…
    Funny this guy that sits in back of me just said “Emma, what are you doing? you are putting your hand up like you are doing the walk of the egiptian.” I was just enjoying the song. I still have to listen to the ones D4 posted.

  74. crzblue2

    Josh Josh!
    Can we have requests for Nancy Bea to play? Please, pretty please? Maybe I’ll take her some flowers over the weekend.

    Tony Jackson: I miss reading your columns and blog 😦

  75. shad78

    I’m not sure what my great grandmother condition is but she still alive and been in the hospital since Friday but still pray for her and my whole family if you haven’t yet and let’s get win #12 at home and sweep the dback and overall win at #20 and also Let’s go Cubs damn I feel dirty saying that after we swept the Cubs out of the playoff last year.

  76. shad78

    I agree fliegel – a no trade clause has got to be even dumber than the $$.

    But let’s not get too excited fellas – Ethier won’t be traded just for back of the bullpen help, and Torre’s [hopefully] not stupid. With the thought of limited playing time, losing his consecutive games streak, and a majority of Dodger fans ready to boo his every step, I’m sure JP would be more than happy to waive his “no trade” clause.

    I agree Enchanted. Pierre signed to leadoff and play centerfield. He will probably not do either with the Dodgers in 08. Now throw in the shared playing time and he will most likely be more than happy to approve a trade. Let’s hope Ned can get it done. Either now or before the July trade deadline when a desperate team my take him. That may be our best hope of unloading him.

    I don’t know if anybody is watching the Indians/Jays game, but the Indians were winning 6-3 going into the 7th, and it is now 10-6 Jays. Pitching, pitching, pitching……………our test will be when we leave our division. However, for now………………..GO DODGERS!!!!!! #12 is yours for the taking. GO GET’EM BOYS!!!!!

  78. enchantedbeaver

    “…Ethier won’t be traded just for back of the bullpen help, and Torre’s [hopefully] not stupid.
    By enchantedsunset@msn.com on January 1, 2008 11:03 AM

    Obviously my hopes were soon dashed…

    … and continue to be so.

  79. selltheteam

    Good luck in tonight’s start, Jeff Weaver. May your outing tonight be as successful as your last one.

  80. crzblue2

    Wow! No post since 12:59? Anyone seen the latest Dodger magazine? the one with O-Dog on the cover when he got the cycle? Did I mention I am in the magazine?. One pic is from the Bluetopia premiere and the other is with my 70’s outfit.
