@Capnsparrow @adicom @Mike Petriello @DBrim Not really. The odds after giving up an out there say is was a bad move no matter what. We can go into Uribe being better then Puig over the past month, or 4 HR's in the last 7 games. Even if it worked the process was bad. Besides who was available to hit? Not much other then Kemp. Mattingly just does what he is "supposed" to do by the 1970 MLB mangers guide......

@Mike Petriello @adicom @DBrim True. I am frustrated by the last two weeks. I guess because I am old, and missed going to the last WS, I just want to win. I should not panic. But as a Dodger talk caller asked the other day, "Can Mattingly mange us to a championship" He can certainly do a lot to lose one, that is for sure. Of course the players have to perform for us to win, but bunting in that situation is not a smart managerial move.

@DBrim There will be for The Dodgers if Matt Kemp is stale, Ethier, Crawford, and Hanley are hurt, and we OVERUSE Paco, Belly (a quote from Mattingly) and the rest of our bullpen.

That's why you don't bunt in that situation. Horrible decision. Practicing losing as we are, injuries or not, is a bad way to enter October.

Beating the "Puffued Up Chowds" is a good thing.

Amazing man. My 25 year old son and I have shared in the joy of Vin for his whole life. I started listening in 1966 (at age 7), so Vin and I go back 47 years. I remember Vin telling a story (one of a million great stories of his) about Willy Mays and Don Drysdale. Willie comes up to the plate, starts digging a hole in the box to plant his back foot. So he is digging away, says Scully, then he looks up and sees Drysdale on the mound, waiting, glaring at him. Willie backs out and sheepishly covers the hole and climbs back in the box.....First pitch was at Willie to knock him down.......Vin told that story while broadcasting the last game of a horrible Dodger season. The Boys In Blue were playing San Francisco. I listed to every inning of that game just to hear the great Scully weave his tales of amazing Baseball history. One more, so vin tells the story of the Happy Birthday umpire song. He says to the crowd (everyone had portable radios to listen to Vin), hey it's the plate umpire's birthday, between innings lets all sing Happy Birthday to him. And sure enough the whole stadium did what Vin asked and sang Happy Birthday to the plate umpire.  Vin, please stay as long as you can!
