Lifelong dodger fan. Saw the Dodgers play at Ebbets field.
You're right Vince. Almost all his injuries are the result of hustle. The ankle was really an unfortunate thing. Kind of a fluke. You almost never see that play. I wish, and I am betting he does as well, that he not decided to try and beat the play at the last second. The score was such that one run meant nothing. He probably would have caught a bit of flack for non hustle, but that would have been volumes better than the outcome he got. I really want to see him come back strongly. Just ease into it. If he comes back fully healthy, he will be a force.

I never cared much for selig being named commissioner in the first place. Not a good idea to give that job to someone who has a vested interest in one of the teams. He and his office conveniently looked the other way on the PED thing while baseball was trying to save itself after the horrible strike and world series cancellation in 94. Maybe, since that all took place on his watch, that is at least part of the reason why he is so focused on Arod. Don't know.

Haha, I had no idea you could be this funny. I like it.

Gotta give him credit, He won. He was holding out for a 3 year deal, and although technically he did not get it, he got two plus an option with a 4.5M buyout. Holy crap. At 37 years old. I guess the D-backs wanted him badly.

Wow, a lot to talk about here. I understand the idea of wanting the guys less apt to make out hit early in the order, It certainly makes sense, You only get 27 of them to use up. Why give them away. I guess some of the old school in me just can't get past the speed at the top of the order thing though. I still like it. I hate to see someone clogging up the bases. I guess I just want it all. The ideal would be to have two Ricky Henderson's on your team to hit first and second.

@DBrim I was thinking the same thing. There was Hanley, but of course the last thing you want with him is a close play at home where he has to slide into a catcher blocking the plate

I went to bed when it was 6-0. Guess I am not yet a full fledged believer. I sure as hell am getting there though. Watched the final two innings this morning on MLB.tv. Pure magic.
@PasadenaDodger MLB creates more bad will with that asinine blackout policy than it is worth. They really need to examine it.

@John M Last night was the true microcosm of the Dodger season. A wash out.

Pretty sure Kershaw was trying to punch Brandon League. Can you be suspended for throwing a punch at your own team mate?

braves look like the bad news bears in this game. I guess everyone feels compelled to play that way against the Gnats

I didn't find that dropping of the bat in this instance to be too terrible. Was he ejected?

@WBBsAs I am not a big Donny fan, but I can not put this one him. He has to work with what he has. Beli has sucked this year. Ryu gave up too many runs. when the dodgers score 5, they should be good.

4 run lead, and poof, gone like a fart in the wind
almost got his head stepped on

I feel like my head is going to asplode
and the padres are doing this to us with half their regulars out of the order
this is fucking surreal
walks in a run, this is better than good....
talk about BABIP
Every year I swear I will not renew MLB.tv the next season, but I always do anyway.
The safest way for an opposing pitcher to ensure a scoreless inning against the Dodgers is to just load the bases.

Newk is such a regal looking man. Met him at ST in 2009. Just a great guy too.
hmmmm. shoe maker takes Crawford's spot in left field. Imagine that

@capnsparrow He is saving him so he can use him to replace Crawford in left field.
Vin just said that Mellis is hitting .143 against this guy and AJ is hitting .545 against him. So, of course, it would figure that Mellis would hit in the 2 spot.
Sandoval is so fat he is actually silly looking. Wonder how good that guy could be if he ever got himself in shape?
Cubs still leading 4-1 going to bottom 5th
4-1 cubs early. Castro with a Home Run.
@Marine Layer I wish there was an unlike button

good outing by League. Nice to see a 1-2-3 ninth
adrian is the best
hernandez looks just weird with that number 55 on his jersey
andre may really be fixed
one hitter too late reynolds
dbacks bench seems a lot better than ours
ump missed that one
bull pen woes
yeah baby. finally hit one at somebody
Beli has a good ERA.
(runs and hides)
I guess it wouldn't be the dodgers without at least one TOOTBLAN
@MotoMikey all your runs are belong to us
Shit startin to come together, isn't it?
Kersh gonna give up one freeking run, get his 1000th K and.......a loss for his efforts.
