A nice night in the desert…

The roof is open at Chase Field and it’s nice to be in Arizona when the thermometer is still in double digits. And the Dodgers have won seven of their last 10, so hopefully they’re getting into a groove.

Meanwhile, how about this nugget we dug up today? The last time a Dodger flirted with batting .400 this far into a season was Willie Davis in 1971. After May 10 that year, he was hitting .375 and went 4-for-4 to put himself at a .395 clip. With Andre Ethier striking out in the first inning, I believe he falls down to .392 but it’s still pretty impressive what he’s done for the first five-plus weeks of the season.

And for those who have been waiting for individual tickets to go on sale for the Yankees series in June, we officially announced today that a mini plan is the only way to get tickets for that series. Based on the overwhelming demand we’ve had from our season ticket holders, who have always had first crack at buying extra tickets for games like Opening Day or the playoffs, it has become clear that there simply won’t be any tickets to put on sale to the general public.

Of course, that also means we’ll hopefully have a lot of Dodger fans in the house for one of the most anticipated series we’ve had in quite some time at Dodger Stadium.

Anyway, back to the game…John Ely just got out of the first inning and there’s no score. At this point, it’s probably too late to post the lineup. If you’re reading this, you probably already know our starting nine…

    Dang Nats let the Mets come back I know but the Nats have a better record than us which is scary.

  2. nedajerk

    Karros trash the Mariners and say that a bad organization because 2 of Griffey teammate told what was going on and Mike Sweeney challenged someone to come clean so he can fight them. I guess it wasn’t Ichiro and it surely wasn’t Bradley lol.

    Since I was threaded. I surely hope someone read that bs rumor by Kemp.

  3. perumike

    Hey all, so far a good pitcher’s duel, but it’s still early. I’m thrilled because I got tickets for my wife and I to next Tuesday’s game, Dre’s Bobblehead Night! Woo hoo! 🙂

  4. nedajerk

    Haren got the same delivery as Beimel how is that Haren is good and Beimel lucky to finish 1 inning?

  5. perumike

    Nice tru! I can’t wait to go to my first game of the season, and also get two bobbleheads! Gonna work at home that day, and I get off at 4:30, and will head straight to the stadium!

  6. nedajerk

    Dang now Martin going CS% going to go down now because of that Ely and Vinny just had to bring up the Cabrera stealing home..

  7. trublu4ever

    I’ve been in SUBMISSION HELL FOR THE LAST 20 MINUTES!!!! PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    .
    Mike ~ Nellyjune and I are driving to game (6 hours each way) and coming home right after…..see what we do for Andre!!!!
    .
    Shad ~ I heard Ortiz might start Friday. Not good!
    .
    WAY TO GO GUYS…..MORE RUNS!!!!!

  8. nedajerk

    Dang you know what when Padilla went on the DL I was surely he would have been move in the rotation and maybe he’ll get bombed and get released. Dang Torre should’ve done that with 2 outs because you give him a 10 k’s.

  9. perumike

    Glad tru and nelly are coming to LA!

    Josh – How about a meet and greet with Dre for the Ethieraholics, especially tru and nelly who come down from No. Cal.? hey, last suggestion I made ended up with the tour 😉

  10. nedajerk

    I love when Weaver side arm like that not get the dp Ryal you owe us from last year for taking out Kuroda.

  11. colliethec

    I still believe Sherrill can do it. I think he needs to not be used in pressure situations right now. They still have the lead and seeing as Ortiz was just used maybe that will mean that he won’t start on Friday night!!

  12. nedajerk

    I really thought Sherrill was turning the corner with all those scoreless inning but it seem he’s getting worst now. Stop the pressie Anderson got a hit.

  13. jhallwally

    Sorry Collie, but when you are playing sub .500 ball and trying to climb back into the mix, every at bat and inning is pressure. Sherrill s*cks!!! It’s not the time to have to baby these overpaid f*ckers!!!!!

  14. nedajerk

    lol 21,030 I think Vinny said that but to bad that game isn’t in LA. lol let’s go Dodgers chant wow.

  15. nedajerk

    They just show the dback Bullpen with an era of 7+, Pirates are 2nd and Cubs are 3rd so I don’t felt back.

  16. nedajerk

    Hey tru does it felt good to eat crow lol that was unpredictable. I was going to write let just guess what out Anderson going to make an out.

  17. colliethec

    Sweet Russ!! Woo hoo!!! He actually has been doing pretty well lately.
    .
    I hear you Jhall. I just mean that we shouldn’t quit on the guy. I mean he should just be used at this point with the bases empty or with large leads. He had been coming around in those spots, but the last couple of times out he hasn’t cut it. He could be a player, that if he can turn it around to what he has been for most of his career would be a huge lift for the bully. We’ll see.

  18. nedajerk

    lol Kuo only thrown 12 pitches geez you tell me he couldn’t get 1 out? Btw should had let Weaver finished it off.

  19. enchantedbeaver

    So how is everyone tonight? I see Martin actually did a good thing with his wussybat.

    Since Sherrill was arbitration eligible can we assume he may also have options left? Perhaps a couple week vacation to beautiful Albuquerque would be in order. If not, I’m sure he could stub his toe or something to have to go on the DL and get some rehab pitching in.

    Above all though, it just goes to show that Bunnynutts can’t even help out a fellow southpaw.

  20. nedajerk

    I guess he won’t be upset I spell that name wrong Monasterios. Have to love to get 2 hits by the same person and funny Anderson get to bat twice in the sme inning. Any prediction on how he’s going to make this out?

  21. nedajerk

    Dang Anderson had to grounded out before I posted this. I don’t think anyone could help Sherrill problem

  22. jhallwally

    Collie, I’m with you. This guy was supposed to have the right stuff. You are right, he needs to be brought in a couple of times when there’s not much on the line. But, right now, there just aren’t that many opportunities. We’re in a freaking dogfight!!!!

  23. colliethec

    That’s a dogfight for last Wally!!
    .
    Really though I’m not thinking this team will do to much this year. If we had that ace that would be a different story. But we need not to get too high over beating the D-Backs. The Rockies was a nice series win but they are injured right now as well. If we can take a couple from the Fathers then I might get a little more excited.
    .
    Make sure you guys read those articles I put the links to up above. They are telling especially the one that the judge stated the McCourts were using the Dodgers to pay for their lifestyle.

  24. jhallwally

    I think we will make it interesting Collie!!! Got some gut checks coming but I was very impressed with the way they made adjustments against Haren tonight. He blew them away thru the first 3-4 innings and we adjusted and took him out. Very impressive in my opinion. And, I really like this Ely kid. Just think, we got him for Juan Pierre. Makes it even sweeter!!! LOL!!!!

  25. nedajerk

    Who said road Loney can’t hit? I’m so glad I started Loney and he was slumping to. I hate benching Gonzalez.

  26. trublu4ever

    The Dodger fans should file a class-action lawsuit against the McCourts for misappropriation of funds.

  27. jhallwally

    LOL Beav!!! Ned is out of his league and he is just fortunate that he is employed by a clueless and dysfunctional ownership. Anywhere else, and he would have been toast!!!!!

  28. jhallwally

    Nice win Gang!! Way to go Dodgers!! Catch you all later!!! Let’s get the sweep tomorrow and get back to .500!!! Excelsior True Blue Believers!!!!!

  29. colliethec

    That it is BPB1. When a judge is making those assessments it really makes you go “ouch”. That article is brutal on them. I thought he was actually you or Bear!

  30. nedajerk

    Make sure this Monasterios dude stay up here all season long. He could be are new Wade but probably better.

  31. enchantedbeaver

    Ain’t no puttin’ a happy face on that one eh Collie?!!!
    .
    Unfortunately it isn’t something that we didn’t already know. It isn’t like he bought the two Holmby Hills and two Malibu mansions off the L.A. Marathon proceeds.
    .
    What really chafes my willie though is the fact they didn’t pay any income tax on $108 mil.

  32. 636566cy

    Does anyone out there think that this whole Yankee series thing has gotten a little more than ridiculous? While it doesn’t impact my ability to go to games because I am a season ticket holder, it is completely insane that other fans can’t get tickets to these games unless they also fork out money for some other games that they may or may not want to see. Since when did the Dodgers start marketing their competition as the reason to come to Dodger Stadium? That’s a Clippers move for goodness sakes! These games would sell out regardless of who was “able” to buy the tickets, so why pull this stunt? I am personally very disappointed with this move.

  33. selltheteam

    Wow. This Ely kid is the real deal. I just have a hard time accepting the fact that it was Ned who got Ely and Link in exchange for Pierre.

  34. enchantedbeaver

    Cy – let me sum up your queery in one word – MONEY. Sure the Yankee series would sell out anyway, but I’m sure the games that are part of the miniplan wouldn’t even come close hence, let’s make you pay 5X more just to see the game you want.

    In the real world I’d call it extortion. In laymans terms I’d call it a shakedown. Whatever terminology you choose to assign it, its just another greedy way to separate you from your money. I’m not even sure its legal. At the very least its morally reprehensible.

    It is however what we’ve come to expect from this ownership…

  35. enchantedbeaver

    On a lighter note, Wussy, I mean Russy had him a nice game. And I have to agree with my esteemed collegue jhall in that the whole team made an adjustment the second time through against Haren. They’ve now beaten Jimenez and Haren within a few days, so that is encouraging.

    Very nice game from Ely. Why he was sent down in the first place and Haeger kept is beyond me. Why we DL’d Haeger and not just release him is beyond me also.

    I’ll also be impressed if Loney can keep his game up all season. Maybe this will be his breakthrough year. I thought Dre pretty much reached his ceiling last year, but he’s proving me wrong. Now if Kemp can get Ned out of his head (thank’s Ned) and get clicking, even if the pitching doesn’t come around the offense will be really fun to watch.

  36. kpookiemon

    collie, read the article you posted last night about the McCourts. Made me want to puke. I’ve been doing my part, but it’s really not a conscious decision…more a subconscious one. When I was a senior in high school I went to HALF the home games. After college my buddy owned a box three rows from the field and I’d buy about 20 games a year. Since the McCourts took over, my pal said “adios” as prices skyrocketed, the third row became buried behind “luxury” boxes, loud music replaced organ music, advertising polluted every corner of the stadium, and food prices………………….. Anyway, last season I went to the ITD tour game and that was it. As I say, it’s not a conscious decision. It’s just that Blue Heaven is more like a strip mall now.

    SELL THE TEAM………pretty please…with sugar on it?

  37. koufax1963

    Kahlifornia- You speak truth. No need to add to statement.
    On the flip of that owners of a baseball team treat it like a business, to make profit, that is not so incredible. How wealthy do people need to be, only Frank and Jaime can answer for themselves. I just disagree with the approach, put a quality product on the field, rather than the field be marketing for a product.
    and if Ned is so dissatisfied with Matt, to think he would be brought in discussion for a trade, even for an Ace, then wait till that ace is gone and Matt is awarded MVP while on another team. Do NOT TRADE our maturing core.

  38. knouffbrock@frontiernet.net

    I see we get our old friend Edwin tonight.
    *
    I was whining for a pitcher and maybe we have him in Ely. You can hope he’ll be consistent enough to keep us in games. I think that is all you can realistically ask. Still need a #1.
    *
    Looks like the team is generally doing better and has decided to play some ball. We’ll have better idea after the series this weekend.

    Hey outstanding website! Does running a blog similar to this take a lot of work?

    I have very little expertise in programming however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future.

  47. how to lose weight fast

    Most people know that extreme starvation dieting is unhealthy and dangerous,
    but some people want to lose weight so much, they eat too little and
    actually inhibit their progress. This does not necessarily have to be a date; I buy myself potato chips when the
    price drops below a level I have set for myself.
    For example, mere days before I gave birth to my daughter, I stepped on the
    scale and was somewhat shocked to see that I weighed 208 pounds, the most I’ve ever weighed in my life.
