    Thinking Kennedy is an upgrade over Uribe has me worried 😉

    With a lot of baseball left to be played this season I hesitate to make a lot out of just one series but with the way the Dodgers have been playing lately, this series with the Angels is especially important. The Dodgers need to stop a losing streak and they need to do it against a team that seems to have had its way with the Dodgers for quite some time. We all thought the Dodgers were on a downward spiral after the Brewers series and the Dodgers bounced back. Can they do it again?

    Let’s go Dodgers, let’s go!!!

  4. trublu4ever says:

    Shhhhh….don’t tell Billz he has never won a game at Angels Stadium.

  5. trublu4ever says:

    Wow….way to go boys!

  6. trublu4ever says:

    Sweet…another run!

  7. trublu4ever says:

    Come on Billz….don’t give those runs back!

    Good evening all.
    What a pleasant surprise to find out tonights game is a freebie on MLB.TV.
    I sure hope Bills gets his shit in one bag. I thought a 5 run lead for him would be adequate. I was wrong. . .

  9. Looks like Dre’s back – happy to say 🙂

  10. trublu4ever says:

    God….I can’t stand Chad! It’s unbearable to watch him….reminds me of Broxton….. a loser!!

  11. On the other hand, Bills is imploding very badly right now. Can’t even hold a 5-run lead – sheeee-it!!!!

  12. vl4eccjr says:

    Why didn’t AJ tag him after the non call?
    That dinger should have never happened.

  13. vl4eccjr says:


  14. trublu4ever says:

    Damn…that should just about seal our fate!

  15. Fate gave the bats life but the pitchers turned to garbage.

    • vl4eccjr says:

      This team scores more without Uribum in the line up. Too bad tonights pitching has been pegging the old suck-o-meter. . .

  16. trublu4ever says:

    Are you serious, Donnie…URIBE?!

  17. vl4eccjr says:

    Darken the hair on Coffey’s head, give him a mullet, and he could be Kenny Powers twin on ‘Eastbound & Down.’

  18. At least we don’t have to worry about being handicapped with Gordon leading off the 9th.

  19. vl4eccjr says:

    Last chance.
    Can they pull the Rabbits out of their Sphincters?

  20. trublu4ever says:

    The Dbacks already won and the gnats are winning….after tonight & this series, we will be in deep poop!

  21. Good night, all. See ya tomorrow.

  22. nellyjune says:

    Bleh!!!! We finally get the hits, and the pitching falls apart. And the gnats are winning in the 9th. Go A’s!!!

  23. kahliforni says:

    The pot begins to boil…

  24. grizzy says:

    There’s my answer. Billingsley for a hitter. I sincerely doubt he’ll ever have the mind set to be successful. We’d probably have to eat some of his salary, but so what. The kind of figures that get tossed around on the news these days would make Billz’ salary sound like my allowance as a 10 yr old.

  25. grizzy says:

    I’ve never thought so until now. If Billingsley and Loney are performing like this at the deadline, trade them both for AA batboy

  26. lbirken says:

    Another disappointing loss to the Angels again last night, especially when the offense provided enough runs to win most games. I did not see the game so I have no idea if Billz was the victim of good hitting or bad pitching but the results are the same. An article in today’s L.A. Daily News suggested the Dodgers try to make a deal with the Angels for Kendry Morales and then move Loney. The deal for Morales would most likely involve pitching prospects including Eovaldi and Chris Reed. Moving Morales would help the Angels solve an outfield logjam. The article mentioned the Dodgers and Angels have not made a deal since the early 90’s and that involved minor leaguers. Does this sound like a good idea? I don’t know enough about Morales other than he hurt himself jumping on home plate after a walk-off homer two years ago.

  27. messagebear says:

    I don’t see Morales as a difference maker, albeit better than Loney, but certainly not worth giving up Eovaldi plus somebody else. Enchanted said it best in his post before the current topic – we’re not just one hitter away from having that winning team makeup. I don’t mind giving up on Billz or Loney, or both, but let’s get some real substance in the way of prospects that are destined to make the major leagues. Our understudies at ABQ have proven woefully inadequate and overrated.

  28. lbirken says:

    I also would not give up that much for Morales but it did make for an interesting question. It also raises the point we all know: the Dodgers need to develop major league caliber players from within and then fill in where necessary rather than plug holes with lesser quality players. Obviously, a lot easier said than done.

    • enchantedbeaver says:

      That’s why there is no quick fix Birk. Start now and at best you develop for the 2015 season. This is exactly why you don’t sign someone marginal like Dre to a long term contract. He should’ve been some other team’s mistake, not ours. Billz and Loney will bring nothing worth acquiring except more of the same tripe that Ned always attains, BUT if you had traded the only commodity (short of Kersh & Kemp) that was worth something, Dre at the deadline would’ve likely brought a passle of top prospects.

      Now Ned will likely do another one of his patented “idiot” moves to try and save this season, and you end up sinking further down the hole. Who wouldn’t want to have a starting staff of Eovaldi, De La Rosa, Lee and Reed anchored by Kershaw in a couple more years? Unfortunately by the time Ned’s done “saving” seasons, we’ll still be lucky to still have Kersh.

  29. messagebear says:

    It might be a lot easier if we started with replacing one NED.

  30. kahliforni says:

    “I felt good out there, but balls were finding holes,” Billingsley said. “And that’s just baseball.”

    An endlessly-looping tape of denial…just ONCE I’d like Billingsley to concede he sucked and that his approach is timid and counter-productive to pitching at the major-league level. Can you imagine Nolan Ryan or Don Drysdale offering up such drivel?

    • lbirken says:

      Drysdale and Ryan took it as an afront if anyone got a hit off of them. But remember, those guys challenged hitters because they had great confidence in their stuff. Billz has never shown that confidence.

  31. trublu4ever says:

    I know we got a run…but, since they are showing the Gnats game here, I don’t know how! Maybe this is better.

  32. nellyjune says:

    There are rumors (again) that the Dodgers are looking at a deal for Yukilis. Hmmmm!

  33. grizzy says:

    I would not give up Eovaldi. Billz, definitely. I’m afraid enchanted is right, though. No quick fix.

  34. 13 consecutive Dodgers batters in a row have made outs. Santana’s pitching ok but not that great.

  35. vl4eccjr says:

    Nice catch Herrera!

  36. Herrera GIDP – bottom of the sixth.

  37. Bottom of the six – still 3-1 Dodgers.

  38. vl4eccjr says:

    Herrera got hosed. He was safe!

  39. Very poor call on Herrera at first. Ump missed the play.

  40. vl4eccjr says:

    Why Uribe? Why?
    What a waste!
    The run production has had a drastic drop since he came off the DL, and has been in the line up.
    THERE! I said it!!!

    • trublu4ever says:

      Sparkleplenty & I were saying he would screw up the team’s chemistry….and, by, gosh, he sure did!

  41. trublu4ever says:

    Crap…the Giants are nw winning 6 – 4…..ugh!

  42. vl4eccjr says:

    Adding insult to injury, the Giants have the lead in Oakland now 6-4.

  43. Going to the top of the 8th – still 3-1!

  44. vl4eccjr says:

    A good solid start from Capuano.
    It’s up to the BP now.

  45. vl4eccjr says:

    Is this the first time A.J. has caught Capuano this year? I thought Treanor was his go to battery mate?

  46. Bottom of the 8th – Belisario in.

  47. Trout on second – no outs.

  48. Hunter K’s – looked really bad 🙂

  49. Got out of that one – but not without an anxious moment or two. Going to the top of the 9th.

  50. vl4eccjr says:

    Kenley nails it down!

  51. vl4eccjr says:

    Rubber game tomorrow!

  52. trublu4ever says:

    Cool! Good pitching tonight. Chad should take a lesson!

  53. lbirken says:

    The Dodgers sure needed that win! And on a regional big Fox broadcast as well. Karros kept talking about the advantage the pitchers have due to the shadows with the late afternoon start time and I believe he has a good point. Still, it took some good defense to keep the Angels from scoring more runs. Glad to see Dee make a big impact and Elian saved some runs with his catch. Tomorrow is another big game.

  54. trublu4ever says:

    God, how I hate Kennedy! I was going to say good news….no Uribe…but, Adam is in there and it’s just as bad!

  55. At least the A’s helped us. Maybe the Giants being defeated by the A’s will soften them up for the Dodgers. I hope . . . . .

  56. messagebear says:

    And another hard fought game for the annals.

  57. messagebear says:

    Or should that be “anals”?

  58. Bear, that was a really succinct message

  59. See you good people later.

  60. messagebear says:

    I would like to give Uribe and Kennedy a succint message.
    Oh, and Ned too!
