    4 out of 5 scorekeepers in the Puig era, say,

    “DODGERS WIN!”

  2. After 60 games since 2005 according to my notes:
    ’05 32-28, ’06 33-27, ’07 34-26, ’08 28-32, ’09 40-20, ’10 36-24, ’11 28-32, ’12 38-22, ’13 27-33.
    Of course as we all know, we’re off to another slow start this year.

    Maybe I missed it, but as far as I can tell nobody has written a Puig song yet. Any takers?

    Matching up on the mound tonight at Dodger Stadium @ 7:10 PM PT

    Kris Medlen – Braves – W-L (2-6) – ERA (3.14)

    Medlen is a local boy from Artesia Ca, who attended Santa Ana CC, and should have some motivation being back in the Southland pitching in front of family and friends.

    In his last ten starts Medlen has went (6.0) innings all but three times. With only (Det) -(SF) -(Tor) – sending him to the showers early.

    Kris tossed (7) innings of shutout baseball against the Dodgers here in the Ravine on 05/18/201. In that match up he only allowed (2) hits and (3) walks, while striking out (5).

    This time around the Dodgers have reloaded the line-up, so if Medlen is to continue his success against them, he will have to do so against the likes of Yasiel Puig, Scott Van Slyke, Jerry Hairston and Hanley Ramirez.

    Stephen Fife – Dodgers – W-L (1-0) – ERA (4.50)

    After the Dodgers big three, (Kershaw, Greinke and Ryu) and with (Beckett, Capuano, Lilly and Billingsley) all on the DL. The Dodgers will turn once again, to Stephen Fife. Fife has only pitched (10) innings , for the big club so far this season, after starting the season in AAA Albuquerque
    .
    In the first of two starts for Los Angeles, Fife, was roughed up early on in Baltimore, lasting only (4.1) innings, with (7) hits surrendered, allowing (4) ER, (1) BB, and striking out (5).

    Fife spent some time on the DL himself after that with shoulder soreness.

    In his second start after being recalled again against San Diego. Fife, only managed to go (5.1) innings, his numbers in that game, (5) H, (1) ER, (2) BB, (5) K, were strong enough for him and the Dodgers to get his first Major League win.

    If history repeats itself, we should see the Dodger bullpen, trying to preserve the momentum that the team has recaptured in the past few games. Belisario, Howell, Guerrier and the newcomer Moylan, were inactive in last night’s match up, with Jansen throwing (22) pitches, League (14) and Rodriguez (3).

    Let the good times continue to roll…

    Right on through to Randy Newman’s, I Love L.A.!!

    Think Dodger Blue and enjoy the game everyone…

  9. WoW That Old Timer’s Game was great. I feel like giving it a try myself. Haha.

  10. lbirken says:

    Glad to see the Dodgers bring back Old Timers Day and a big thanks to the Dodgers for streaming it live. Brings back a lot of good memories and great to see Koufax, Fernando and the infield of Cey, Russell, Lopes and Garvey on the field.

  11. trublu4ever says:

    Good job “Barney”!

  12. Yes those were great memories.

  13. Dre’s suckage is reaching new depths.

  14. That pitch was inside to Ethier for srike three.

  15. That’s ugly, they score first again.

  16. First one for Medlen.

  17. Dodger4life says:

    Ruh Roh!!

  18. trublu4ever says:

    Awesome throw Viva Puig!

  19. Dodger4life says:

  20. And the beat goes on.

  21. crash24now says:

    Failure to score Punto from third and one out.

  22. crash24now says:

    Need to get Puig up to bat with RISP.

  23. I don’t know how their bullpen will do but it’s good to see Medlen leave.

  24. crash24now says:

    Puig, Puig, Puig, Puig, Puig!

  25. crash24now says:

    Hanleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey!

  26. crash24now says:

    Kershaw pinch-running!!!!

  27. I never expected it, nice going Hanley.

  28. Dodger4life says:

    Get em’ tomorrow!

  29. crash24now says:

    Shoe gets it started!

  30. trublu4ever says:

    Yuck!

    • JhallWally says:

      🙂 I have a bad feeling we will be seeing a lot more yuck than yeah with this team going forward…… Tough loss…..

      Fire Ned, now, please!!!!!

  31. Maybe we’ll get ’em tomorrow. If we can find a pitcher.

  32. Good try, but fizzled short. Tomorrow’s another day 🙂

  33. lbirken says:

    Puig has certainly helped but this team still has trouble scoring runs.

  34. crash24now says:

    Let’s face it. It’s tough to score runs when the following are out of the lineup:

    Hanley
    Mark Ellis
    AJ Ellis
    Carl Crawford
    Matt Kemp

    and Ethier is in some strange season-long funk.

    Punto and Schumaker are filling in nicely, but even with the advent of Puig, they can’t get it done by themselves.

    • JhallWally says:

      Ethier sucks…. I’ve been saying it for a couple of years now.. He should have been traded two or three years ago when he had some value…. He has always been overrrated. Now we are stuck with him and his ridiculous contract. Thanks Ned….

      And thanks for that League contract… I guess you just had to show us that you could top the Grrrear contract for stupidity….

      Geez!!! Why is Nedcompoop still here?

  35. Dodger4life says:

    You have to tip your hat to Medlen, not only did he pitch shut out baseball again, but if he doesn’t hit that HR, Puig comes to the plate again. Fife deserves to be the 4th man in the rotation whether or not someone comes off the DL. He did a good job, but both pitches hit for dingers tonight were in the same spot.

  36. Dodger4life says:

    Good Night everyone,.. I’ve enjoyed changing the thread the past few days, but it’s time to pass the torch.

    See y’all manana…

  37. PuigLover aka MartinLoneyKemp says:

    Can anybody remember a more perfect throw than Puig’s throw to 3rd base tonight.
    .
    Probably, Mondesi made some just as good. Maybe Candy Maldonado was that on target once or twice (Man, Candy had a cannon! But his aim wasn’t so hot.)
    .
    The last throw that I specifically remember as being so exactly on target was Joe Ferguson’s throw from center when he cut in front of Jimmy Wynn and made a throw to home that would literally have been a strike if it had been a pitch.

    • Dodger4life says:

      I still google this and watch it from time to time… like today.

      • PuigLover aka MartinLoneyKemp says:

        Thank you, Dodger4life.
        .
        Did you notice how cocky Jackson was?

        • Dodger4life says:

          I remember Reggie’s attitude back then well. Those Oakland teams were loaded with talent. I can remember being so stoked when Ferguson made that throw and nailed Sal Bando at the plate.

  38. Not even Puig can save this team from itself (and Ned and Donnie.)

    Once again this club needs to be sellers at the trade deadline, but I’m sure Ned thinks he can win it all and will trade away what little farm we’ve got for this year’s Dotel. Dre has to go period. He still should bring back a decent prospect provided most of his contract is eaten. Time to see what Pederson’s got.

    This organization is so bereft of ML talent in the minors though that they had to draft a bunch of college kids just to have someone that’s not 3-4 years away. Then they keep this bizarre bloodlines thing going in the draft. Yeah, that’s really working out so far with the likes of SVS and Gordon. Just because my dad was a mechanic doesn’t mean I can work on cars.

    Now I see that Gordon played (or was going to) 2B last night and that they’re also going to try him in the OF. If you knew he wasn’t going to be your SS going forward, shouldn’t he have been playing these positions from ST on?

    The mind boggles at the ineptitude of this franchise. That is of course not withstanding that it duped an additional 14000 people into buying season seats and tripled its $2.2B purchase price with the cable contract.

    • messagebear says:

      I don’t see what’s going to be accomplished by having Gordon change positions – either he can field ground balls and throw runners out or he can’t; either he can hit major league pitching or he can’t. We certainly don’t need a no power outfielder. I think the guy has just been touted beyond his capabilities (and maybe because of his so-called pedigree) to a level that he may never achieve.

  39. trublu4ever says:

    Well, you all get your wish, Dre is benched today! Enjoy!

  40. HI Everybody
    I missed Magill’s outing last Sunday. It will be interesting to see how much better (we hope) he does.

  41. Dodger4life says:

    24

  42. trublu4ever says:

    First inning…already have drink in hand!

  43. trublu4ever says:

    Ugh….not good Scotty.

  44. ZonaDodger says:

    Hello…Hope all of you are doing well….DFA Cruz already….He sucks….Really like what ic in Puig…Take Care All

  45. Schumaker is really coming through.

  46. ZonaDodger says:

    Better load up on drinks today tru lol

  47. grizzy says:

    Can’t get to carried away, we’re going to dinner with our Morman friends. I’ll still manage a couple of Pacificos. I may need it.

  48. trublu4ever says:

    Errors always come back and bite you in the ass!

  49. I was thinking of Uggla was going to hit another one.

  50. Dodger4life says:

    Not ready for prime time, Magoo….

  51. Vinny said it today – this lineup is not going to score runs. Why can’t Dildon figure it out?

  52. koufax1963 says:

    Oh well a split with the braves is better than the sweep they did to us before. Margaritas Yea that the way!

  53. messagebear says:

    Yes, I figured that achieving a split with the Braves would be OK – needless to say was hoping for more once we won the first two.

    Secondly, it’s got to be obvious that Magill is not ready for the major leagues. Can Zach Lee possibly be any less prepared to give it a try up here? I know, in Ned’s mind there may be another of those “options” things lurking, like are we going to lose control of another year for Lee by bringing him up this early.

  54. Time the assholes in the front office admit this year is lost and start trading away anything that will bring back at least a single-A prospect, then bring up anything with a heartbeat to see what they’ve really got down on the farm. Same damn thing we’ve been saying for 6 years with Ned at the helm and a lifeless inept manager in the dugout.

    • JhallWally says:

      I agree my brother… But, this is the same group that kept Nedcomshit (its no longer poop, he is shit)…..

      I don’t think they have a well thought out plan or the baseball saavy to create it, much less, make it happen….

  55. 32and53fan says:

    I’m still holding out with the hope that, when/if the core group returns healthy, they can put together some win streaks. I know, hope is for fools, but as a life long Dodger fan since 1959, I am not ready to throw in the towel for this season just yet.

  56. messagebear says:

    Makes you wonder how much difference ownership really makes if you’re going to keep the same GM and manager who have already demonstrated what fiasco really means. I could never understand how demonstrably good business managers that the Guggenheim group is assumed to be could keep the same front office and field management group. They would hardly do that if they took over some other kind of business. For what I can see, all that the new ownership has done is provided unlimited new funds to be thrown away by the same old idiot.

    • I suppose Ned could sell his soul to the devil for a better team, but he’d probably fuck that up too.

    • JhallWally says:

      Spot on Bear… I am not very impressed with our new ownership. I was off the band wagon when the first thing they didn’t do was fire Nedcomshit….

      • messagebear says:

        Yes, staying in any kind of partnership with Frank and keeping his miserable appointees tells you a lot.

        • JhallWally says:

          Agreed… This ownership may prove worse than the Fox and McSlime ownerships… They are just eyeing the big TV money. Once that is in the bag, I’m not very optimistic about the Dodgers future….

  57. Anyone think Greinke WON’T opt out after 3 years are up? Why would anyone in their right mind want to be a part of this continued mess year in and year out?

    • JhallWally says:

      I would… Why would you stay on with this mess…

    • messagebear says:

      I’m considering that we paid huge bucks for a guy who was the best available as a FA this year, but not necessarily a superstar. On top of that we have to give him a “get out” clause? What kind of business sense does that make? That’s all in favor of the player, and all the risk of guaranteeing those big dollars if he goes belly up is on our side. Well, that’s Ned, and he’ll be the first to tell you that this is the way business is done these days.

  58. I’m not giving up yet, because we’re still less than 10 games back.
    And now with Puig, who just hit a double, I think there’s still a chance to have at least a .500 season.

  59. Dodger4life says:

    Capuano, Lilly, Magill, and possibly Fife… with Belisario and the boy’s will not get us to where we need to be at this point. So I think enchanted is recommending that we throw in the towel vs trade for pitching help. The problem I see with bringing up Lee, is once a young pitcher has the mentality that he fears the opponent, it is difficult to reverse. Hitters can battle through such things much easier I believe. I am not saying Lee would falter, just saying if he did, it could be damaging. I have no clue as to if he is ready? I have never seen him pitch. I have seen Magill, and he is one scared kid on the mound.

    Andre is more than struggling, something isn’t right and I don’t believe that it is all Mattingly. Cruz is a cheerleader with a bat at this point, but probably the healthiest of the utility guys. Mattingly shifting everyone in at 3rd base would be the reason teams bunt on them from time to time, being that it is a very difficult play to make, even when you don’t get spot starts. Agon has been solid on offense most of the year, everyone has hiccups. Getting healthy is getting harder to use as a means of hope, as time is running out. Hanley might be back on the DL and Kemp who has struggled so far this season, has suffered some sort of set back too.

    But as 32&53fan said, I am not ready to give up either… I wouldn’t be ready if they called up all the youngsters and traded all the so called stars. It is just too early, yet. Stranger things have happened.

  60. grizzy says:

    I agree. Too early.

  61. Offense is the main weakness with this team, if it would ever improved, even a little, things could become better. We do need two starters but it’s still the fact that we need more offense.

  62. To look at Van Slyke it’s hard to tell that he’s such a terrific outfielder.

  63. crash24now says:

    Put Ethier on the DL. Bring up Pederson. Play an outfield of Van Slyke LF/ Puig CF / Pederson RF

    Don’t pitch Magill in the MLB again in 2013. Bring up Zach Lee for the rotation.

  64. Dodger4life says:

    Hey, y’all…

    We have some kid named Kershaw throwing off the famed hill tonight…

  65. Dodger4life says:

    With Kid K, Greinke and Ryu, facing the Snakes the next three days. This could be a pivotal point to the season… It is possible that the Boy’s, could be 4 1/2 games back of Arizona with some quality play on both sides of the field.

    The rest of the N.L. West faces challenges as well. With SF heading to Pittsburgh, the Rockies facing the Nat’s and San Diego up against Atlanta.

    Gibson has his young Arizona team playing well, but these are the matchups we would want to have in this position.

    • I agree D4Life, we couldn’t ask for a better rotation especially since Greinke looked very good in his last start.(7.0). This is truly an excelent chance for the bums to gain some ground if the offense will cooperate.

  66. Congrats to Yasiel. He was named NL Player of the Week.

  67. grizzy says:

    I agree again. The rotation couldn’t be set better for this series. I had thought earlier that this one could set the tone for the remaining season. Will it be for the good or bad? Will the offense show up?
    Now would be a great time to start earning your money, Andre.
