Big bats up next inning... It's not over yet!
1 week, 4 days ago on Nationals @ Dodgers Sept. 3, 2014: Joc Pederson Rides Again
@KMT59 Still here! And still don't like the way the 10th and 11th got managed! LOVE the Crawford homer though! Now if we can just avoid loading the bases...
@Spastic It's the kind of thing that shows the total lack of process-based thinking. If you don't want to pinch-run for your second-to-last catcher because you lose flexibility, don't do it whether he's on first, second, or third. If you do because you think you can get the win this inning, do it when he's at first. If he'd done it when AJ was at first, this game is over an hour ago. If you don't do it at all, who knows, no need to have Butera with one out and the bases loaded. Maybe we win it then. This was the worst of both worlds.
It must take a profoundly stupid person to have the primary purpose of your life be playing and coaching a fairly simple game for the better part of 50 years and still be an incompetent tactician.
The chess against checkers metaphor gets used a lot to describe a totally hapless manager... This is more like chess against peek-a-boo.
@ak825 @CptPineapple But if you could...
Dee with high socks is my favorite. He just looks like he's gonna steal all the bases.
Nine pitchers for three innings a piece? I'm gonna need to shift my schedule around if this game goes 27 innings...
Man... Watching Correia throw his signature "85 mph maybe-kind-of-just-a-little-bit-of breaking ball" a foot outside to lefties over and over again is not encouraging. I'm not blaming the loss on him at all, I'm just saying... Spectating Kevin Correia is not my favorite.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Padres 3, Dodgers 2: Defense Is Important
You know if you'd told me before the game that Haren and Correia would pitch on the same night and we would only lose by one run, I'm not sure how much more I could have reasonably hoped for.

I'm waiting for 4+1 Game Part 2 with Arrubydooby-Butera-Rojas-Greinke. IT COULD HAPPEN.

@Purple Drank I would like to see Chilean Seabass on this list.

@Swung at ball 4 Ooh we could use a big bat at DH so that would be good.

I assume I'm late to the party on this, but if by some chance I'm not, it needs to be shared.
It seems like this nice little scoreless streak Kershaw is putting together will help Cy Young voters forget about the time he missed earlier in the year. This pleases me.

@StephSmiles This is why it's bad to joke about Downs. Even AGonz clearly has learned how serious it is.

That sucks, but a perfect game at Dodger Stadium would have felt wrong with Vin out sick.

That was a nasty pitch.

@KMT59 Should have been 5!

Puig's not happy... At least he cares.
4 months, 1 week ago on Giants @ Dodgers May 9, 2014: Perspective
@NotWorkingatWork @CptPineapple "Guy who everybody hated the year before because he was terrible on a big contract makes good and shores up a position that was questionable because of the poor performance of others" is a narrative that's totally out of reach for him?
Is League gonna be this year's Uribe?
That bat flip was no more than a 3.8/10. What is he possibly so pissed about?
@Technogit Fastball to the thumb.
@Good Clubhouse Guy Don't do that.
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Deep Cuts (love me a donut) He could absolutely be an evil henchman in a Bond movie.
@Noel D This.
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @CptPineapple That sounds right. I have all these beautiful memories of home runs to right center. I miss those days.
Shift? I feel like Kemp isn't all that much of a pull-hitter... Is Bochy confused or am I?
@Deep Cuts (yes donut) I would love to eliminate Kuiper from the game.
@Purple Drank Giants announcers spend 85% of their air time bitching about something or other.
@Dodgerpain @I Digesti @CptPineapple Does home plate face East? I always pictured it as North... Never gave a ton of thought to the polar orientation of DS.
4 months, 1 week ago on Giants @ Dodgers May 8, 2014: Finally Back Home
Jesus... I know it was a strike, but Posey could have hit that one to Bakersfield.
Hanley, Gonzo and Kemp in the ninth! That's positive!
Dodgers taking some really nice swings so far this inning...
@DgrFanNCuban Less than 90 pitches and no runs allowed through six. You're really gonna pull him out in the seventh? The decision was fine. The result was unfortunate. Tie game. Let's win it.
@WBBsAs (In Dog We Trust. Un Planeta Sin Gatos) Wish granted!
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Dodgers @ Twins May 1, 2014: Introducing Red Patterson
Patterson's first MLB out! Wish it had come a little earlier...
Why do we even bother keeping Van Slyke on the roster if he's not gonna hit in situations like this?
4 months, 3 weeks ago on Phillies @ Dodgers, April 22, 2014: At Least It’s Not Cliff Lee
I'm a big fan of Mattingly's willingness to sit Ethier and Crawford against lefties. I know it's not every time and a lot of his decisions still leave me scratching my head, but this seems like a positive step.

@ABSmileBunch @CptPineapple @ryus_hadouken You're exactly right.
