    Tough series against a very good team….hoping for two of three. That would make a very good road trip.

  2. lbirken says:

    Tough series, indeed. Funny, we were all over Matt Kemp yesterday for not controlling his emotions. It was not all that long ago that the Dodgers hardly seemed to have a pulse so a little show of emotion is o.k. with me as long as no one gets ejected.

  3. crash24now says:

    Jerry Sands is still slaughtering the ball down in AAA. Over his last ten games, he’s hitting .455 with 5 home runs. Why the heck doesn’t Ned bring him up and DFA either Uribe, Rivera, or Loney?

  4. lbirken says:

    Sorry, but as much as you may like Sands or dislike Uribe, Rivera or Loney, Sands has done nothing to force his way onto the major league club and prove he belongs there. Maybe someday he will, but I would not make the move now.

    • Sands in someway reminds me of Andy LaRoche. Played well in the minors and in other contest but never could break the ice with the Dodgers.
      I hope this changes because we can use a power hitting first baseman and it would be good not to go outside the organization to get one.

  5. Hi Everybody
    Hope the Dodgers can start a new winning streak tonight.

  6. Age isn’t a factor with Chipper. Eh?

  7. trublu4ever says:

    My prediction…..we will score this inning! Go, Dodgers!

  8. Hope ur right,TB4ever

  9. Almost but it was worth a try.

  10. vl4eccjr says:

    Almost only counts in hand grenades & horse shoes.

  11. trublu4ever says:

    Hey, Beav….Dre goes BOOM!

  12. trublu4ever says:

    Cruz is a stud! Ned, you can cut Uribe loose now, please!

  13. Finally they got to Hanson.

  14. The Capo’s looking good.

  15. trublu4ever says:

    Damn, Belli!

  16. Gotta get some runs here.

  17. Attaway t’go Beli…

  18. vl4eccjr says:

    League makes me just as vervous as Scott Proctor did when he was a Dodger!

  19. DodgerZona says:

    Thx Brandon…Whew…Let’s win this game Dodgers

  20. That was a tremendous outing for Brandon League.
    A great confidence builder for him.
    I can’t believe we’re still alive in this game.

  21. trublu4ever says:

    Hell….Loney could have done that….way to go Rivera!

  22. trublu4ever says:

    Well, that sucked!

  23. vl4eccjr says:

    Another loss grasped from the jaws of victory from the bullpen.
    Thanks to Wright & League!

  24. Too bad we were on the wrong end of it but it was quite a battle.

  25. vl4eccjr says:

    Well that was a very short stint in first place.

  26. crash24now says:

    Nice to see Dre going yard tonight.

  27. grizzy says:

    Well, that’s one we coulda/shoulda won, but WTF anyway. It’s not like we’re playing the Sisters of the Poor. Get ’em tonight!!!!

  28. lbirken says:

    This is what a pennant race is all about: close games, scoreboard watching and important games every day.

  29. trublu4ever says:

    Mattingly got two game suspension…..Matty avoided same fate. Thank goodness.

  30. kahliforni says:

    Now let’s isolate Mattingley in a cave somewhere and see if another voice produces a first-place team.

  31. trublu4ever says:

    Tonight……pretty much same lineup…..A.J. in….Treanor out.

  32. koufax1963 says:

    yeah, a new manager, just when I was buying his platooning at 1B, he mismanages the bullpen, hope hillman puts up a couple of wins, if not, ouch. The suspension for seemed fair, its his 6th time being tossed this year, kudos! Glad Matty cleared, cooler heads prevailed, and all over cheering on his teammate Dre! Much ado about nothing, and I get to see today’s game ! w0o h0o!

  33. lbirken says:

    I still think the Dodgers are much better off defensively with Loney at first base. With the potential of better offense from Victorino and Hanley, Loney’s offensive issues should not be as big a concern. I have never liked platooning. I would also play Cruz everyday with the way he has been hitting.

  34. grizzy says:

    Me too.

  35. trublu4ever says:

    Dear God….please make Harang pitch a good game tonight…we need it….thank-you.

  36. Hi Everybody
    I have trouble getting MLB.TV up, I have to make sure nothing else is already up.
    I rather watch the Dodger feed so I try my best to bring it up instead of watching it on the regular T.V., MLBN or Extra innings when the Dodger broadcast is not on.

  37. trublu4ever says:

    Thank-you, Hanley!

  38. Attaway to go H A N L E Y>>>

  39. I can’t believe it James and Cruuuuz to.

  40. trublu4ever says:

    Another 3 or 4 runs would make me breathe a little easier.

  41. What’s with these 2 out doubles?

  42. trublu4ever says:

    Okay…we need more runs….let’s do it!

  43. lbirken says:

    Way to go Hanley!

  44. trublu4ever says:

    Come on Harang….don’t get yourself in trouble again.

  45. lbirken says:

    Harang a grinder?

  46. Good outing for Harang. Let’s hope things don’t change like last night.

  47. trublu4ever says:

    Come on Javy….prove the Beav wrong!

  48. grizzy says:

    I’d get that jackass out of there before he gives the game back.

  49. These walks could kill us.

  50. lbirken says:

    They don’t make it easy, do they?

  51. These Braves are very discipline and patient.
    I hope Jansen just fires it in there.

  52. grizzy says:

    We may be out of jackass’ soon

  53. lbirken says:

    Thank you Kenley.

  54. trublu4ever says:

    Okay, Kenley….finish them off.

  55. I’m glad that HR didn’t come last inning.

  56. lbirken says:

    An unusual game indeed. No singles, 10 walks, Harang somehow hanging in there and the Dodgers getting 4 hits, all home runs and a win for Hillman as manager.

  57. trublu4ever says:

    Have to do it again tomorrow.

  58. grizzy says:

    Thank You, Kenley.

  59. lbirken says:

    Yes, enjoy this one for the moment and come back tomorrow for another big game. Have a great evening everyone.

  60. I think I’ll go check on the Pods.

  61. nellyjune says:

    I hope you all are doing well. I’ve been setting up for another school year. When the Dodgers set off on this road trip, I was hoping for a 5-5 record, but the worst they can do is 7-3. Not bad considering the teams we played, while the gnats played the Nats, Rockies and Padres (with a day off in the mix as well). Our series at home against the gnats is going to be crucial if we want to go ahead or at least stay close, meanwhile watching the Dbacks not too far below us. The craziness continues.

  62. trublu4ever says:

    Early game today….would be nice to win this one. I see Loney is sitting today…..finally heating up a bit and they sit him….I know it’s a lefty thing but…..platooning is phooey! Oh well, go get ’em Billz and the boys!

  63. koufax1963 says:

    a kudos to Hillman manging the pen like he did, gave each some time to prove if they were going to deliver, if not change. Like it. Harang pitched like a tightrope walker and he got across. I have some negatives but lets see if that gets corrected today. Go Dodgers.

  64. trublu4ever says:

    I’m sorry they sent Herrera back to AAA to make room for Elbert…..means Uribe still survives….dammit!

  65. trublu4ever says:

    Come on Chad….shake it off….we need the good Billz!

  66. grizzy says:

    Another of MLB’s finest behind the plate again today.

  67. messagebear says:

    We never should have signed Andre to a long term contract, and a very expensive one at that. He’s not worth it, and we should have traded him before the deadline. He’s going to be a waste at the dollars he’s gathering.

  68. Heyward is really making Billz work, not good.

  69. trublu4ever says:


  70. trublu4ever says:

    CRUZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This boy can flat out hit!!!!!!!!!!

  71. Cruuuuz is really something. the League hasn’t caught on to him yet.
    The longer they take the better for us

  72. DodgerZona says:

    Nice HR Cruz…Would of been nice if they got AJ in from 3rd….damn

  73. Don’t anyone know how to get rid of the highlites on the left side of the MLB.TV screen?

  74. This Heyward guy scares me.

  75. Wish we can score a little here.

  76. nedisajerk says:

    The Dodgers pitchers always have Heyward number batting under .200. I hope Heyward never figure out the Dodgers pitching.

  77. I’ll be leaving in about 15 minutes but I’ll be back.

  78. Billz is something to be proud of.

  79. I guess we can safely say that Uribe is due.

  80. trublu4ever says:

    I’ll take that run….now, let’s pile on!

  81. DodgerZona says:

    Thanks to the sun we got a run lol

  82. DodgerZona says:

    let’s get more boys

  83. DodgerZona says:

    Come on Dre

  84. nedisajerk says:

    Suspend Melky for 100 games and if he does win the batting titles DQ him.

  85. DodgerZona says:

    Well hopefully them 2 hold up

  86. nedisajerk says:

    Let’s have a nice inning Belisario.

  87. nedisajerk says:

    No I don’t want to see League.

  88. trublu4ever says:

    Good grief…..let’s take advantage of those errors.

  89. DodgerZona says:

    Awesome Mark Ellis

  90. nedisajerk says:

    Can we actually get a hit with the bases loaded this time?

  91. DodgerZona says:

    Come on Elbert let’s finish this

  92. trublu4ever says:

    Nice job in the 9th, Elbert…….have a safe trip home guys. And, let’s bury the gnats, come tomorrow!

  93. DodgerZona says:

    Nice road trip guy’s…..Now let’s beat the Gnats

  94. lbirken says:

    I have to say Billz has impressed the heck out of me with this string of great outings. Not sure what changed for him but he is now showing the talent we all thought he had. He seems a lot more confident and does not let a little adversity affect him. I have no idea if his mechanics are different but that little stint on the DL must have done wonders. Let’s hope he can keep it up.

  95. Yippee! We’re back in first place!! Now let’s thrash those g’nats!!

  96. nellyjune says:

    A nice 7-3 record for this road trip was pretty awesome. Way to go Dodgers!
