Bye Bye Broadway…San Diego Here We Come

The Dodgers split their Day/Night Doubleheader in Yankee Stadium, playing like little leaguers in game one, performing like champions in the nightcap.

The question is, which version of the Dodgers will show up in San Diego?

  1. Hi OTD,
    After a day of rain and a double header, I’ve been trying to catch up with where I should be at this time. It was a great time though, meeting people that I hadn’t seen since the ITD tour and others around the blogs. Emma and her crew took pictures and TBW and myself got in a few of them. That all happened on Tuesday, inside Yankee Stadium, during the rain.
    To bad the Dodgers, showed one of their weaknesses, thanks mostly to Belisario, in that first game, but it all turned out great after winning the nightcap and leaving Yankee Stadium feeling somehow like the Dodgers had just won the World Series.
    See ya’s later.

      There were 4 photos on Emma’s site, each showing a slightly different angle, with all of the people not visible in any of them. I ran them through a stitching program so everybody is in just one photo.

  2. Glad you had a good time Brooklyn!

    Herrera up, Withrow down. What’s the deal with that?

    • trublu4ever says:

      I want to know…who makes that call….Donnie or Ned? Beli is he one who should be gone for good! Cruz, too!

  3. 32and53fan says:

    Just for laughs, I wanted to see if it would be feasible for me to attend the Sandy Koufax Bobblehead game.

    Even if I left my family at home, I would still have to get a bank loan to attend in the good seats. $25 is the cheapest ticket available… bring tissues for your nosebleed and binoculars if you want to see more than ants on the field.
    Here’s a close up of the gory details:

    If I really want a bobblehead, eBay is a heck of a lot cheaper.

    I have always wondered how much influence a manager has about player personnel. One would think he would have some input about what is needed but my guess is the GM has more information and makes these calls based on some perceived need.

  5. What I don’t get is that barring an injury, Withrow has to stay down in the minors for a certain amount of time now before he can be recalled. So the kid pitches two really good innings, then gets shipped out, yet Beli and Cruz who stink up the joint night after night get to stay. If Ned wants those two so bad, chances are no one claims them off waivers anyway and he can stash them in the minors. My question then is, what’s the incentive to do a good job on this team when there’s no reward?

  6. trublu4ever says:


  7. Evidently this Puig kid can hit.

  8. crash24now says:

    The ball just jumped right off Puig’s bat.

  9. trublu4ever says:

    Good job Stephen…keep it up!

  10. Hi Everybody
    Nice picture.
    I’ve been watching the game on MLB.TV but I usually have trouble loging on to OTD or any place else. ( I lose the ballgame) So I no longer take the chance. Once MLB EXtra Innings got the game on I was free to do what I want.
    That was a great shot by Puig. Amazing he’s already 2nd on the team in HRs.

  11. crash24now says:

    Mattingly is hoping for a Kemp rehab assignment next week.

  12. Puig got schooled in that AB.

  13. crash24now says:

    Failure with RISP – here we go again.

  14. Fife sure as hell got squeezed on that sequence.

  15. crash24now says:

    Fife hung one there. We’re lucky it was only a ground-rule double.

  16. Good gawd. Was that actually a stolen base?

  17. crash24now says:

    0-4 with RISP tonight. Fife needs the offense to score more runs.

  18. trublu4ever says:

    Mark…that’s a no-no!

  19. Well it was fun while it lasted.

  20. Marqis is a good hitting pitcher. new game.

  21. Think that’ll do it for me.TV time. This games another rerun.

  22. The way Marqis is pitching it’s an uphill climb, especially if the Dodgers keep swinging at pitches out of the strike zone.

  23. crash24now says:

    Failure with RISP. Bad defense of which the other team takes advantage. Seemingly no heart. Lose games that are winnable.

    These are the differences between a 30-40 team and a 40-30 team.

    • crash24now says:

      Add poor bullpen (though not in the last few games). Also add – Rookie Puig still learning which base to throw to.

      • JhallWally says:

        Yep, this team has alot of problems. They should start by firing the guy who built this mess and hired the manager.

        Nedcompoop needs to go away soon……

  24. crash24now says:

    Nice RBI by Uribe.

  25. Nice hitting by Uribe.

  26. JhallWally says:

    Freaking Grrrrear… We’re screwed….

  27. oldbrooklynfan says:

    Apparently Guerrier doesn’t have anything tonight.

  28. crash24now says:

    GrrrRear and Donnie giving away the game and the season, respectively.

  29. vl4eccjr says:

    Our lousy bullpen is living up to it’s horrible reputation again. . 😦

  30. crash24now says:

    Time to see whether the heart of the order has any heart.

  31. oldbrooklynfan says:

    We are still in this game.

  32. oldbrooklynfan says:

    Ethier is batting .255, he’s really been keeping it up over the .250 mark lately.

  33. oldbrooklynfan says:

    That was truly a great catch by Amarista.

  34. vl4eccjr says:

    Thar she blows!!!

  35. oldbrooklynfan says:

    I guess that Ciriaco HR puts this game away.

  36. crash24now says:

    Unknown utility player has career game against Dodger bullpen. Nothing new here. Move along.

  37. vl4eccjr says:

    Oh well! I guess Moylan was due for an implosion. It was only a matter of time before the stench rubbed off from the rest of this stinking pen. . .

  38. oldbrooklynfan says:


  39. oldbrooklynfan says:

    Maybe we’ll get to Street.

  40. oldbrooklynfan says:

    Well I guess we went down fighting tonight.

  41. crash24now says:

    File this game away in “we needed to win this one”. As in you lose a third, win a third, and what you do in the final third will determine how you finish the year.

  42. lbirken says:

    I was hoping for a more inspiring game after yesterday but the pattern of following a big win with a loss continues. I know the team traveled all night from New York but since players seldom if ever even mention travel and time changes, why should fans or media?

    Puig sure looked bad tonight as the Padres never threw him a strike. It will be interesting to see if he can make the adjustment. I had flashes of Adrian Beltre and pre-2011 Matt Kemp as I watched Puig attempt to hit the low and away pitch. He was definitely trying to hard tonight.

    And once again I could not help notice another solo Dodger homerun in the 9th when down by 4. They just cannot seem to hit homers with runners on base when it would make a difference.

  43. oldbrooklynfan says:

    The Dodgers usually stand a good chance of winning when Kershaw’s pitching. Although it is hard to say so these days. Although he hasn’t beaten the Padres this season there’s always a chance he can win if the Dodgers score enough runs,

  44. messagebear says:

    Some of you may think I’m being unkind, but I’m wondering whether Kersh has developed the necessary mental toughness to be the top notch pitching leader in the league. I can remember all the pitching duels between Koufax and Gibson back in the days. Many more times than not it was Sandy who eked out the 1-0 wins. Now Gibson was a great pitcher, and I’d take somebody like him any day, but when the game was on the line and nobody was scoring for either side, Sandy had the intestinal fortitude to last just a little bit longer before giving up even one run. Kersh is not nearly at Sandy’s stage in his career, but most of the time he’ll give up that one or two game deciding runs, and that’s why his record is barely over .500.

    • With a better bullpen alone bear Kersh could have 4 more wins. They’ve blown that many wins for him already.

      There are so many holes on this team, even Koufax and Drysdale in their heydays couldn’t be winners with this crew. They’re an embarrassment not only to L.A. and the uniform, but to baseball period. I’ve been more disgusted this year than I was at anytime during McCourt’s tenure.

      • messagebear says:

        Boy, are you right! This group makes McCourt look good.

        • You know what I can’t figure out bear? Kasten & Co. knew EVERYTHING on this team was broken when they bought it, from the stadium to the team to the minors. Yet the two incompetent boobs most directly responsible for the state of the team and the minors were kept on. I don’t care how much money you throw at things, if you don’t have someone who knows what they’re doing the results are still going to be the same.

  45. crash24now says:

    Kershaw is incredible this year, when measuring by numbers. ERA of 1.84, WHIP of 0.97, BA against of .191.

    However, the 2013 Dodgers have only won 8 of 15 games that Kershaw has started. The fault lies not with Kershaw, but with the supporting cast. Injuries. Holes in the defense. Holes in the offense. Lack of hitting with RISP. Lack of a good bullpen.

    Our luck with Greinke has been slightly better, at 6-3. Between Kershaw and Greinke, we are 14-10 when they start. So we should win one of these two games, and we would be incredibly fortunate to win both of them.

    However, on Sunday, our starting pitcher is likely to be Magill, since Ryu pitched on Wednesday. Dodgers record with Magill starting is 0-6.

    Where does this put us for the Padres four game series? Likely 1-3, possibly a 2-2 split. Either outcome should tell management to can Donnie and be sellers at the trading deadline.

  46. crash24now says:

    Ellis 2b
    Puig rf
    Gonzalez 1b
    Ramirez ss
    Uribe 3b
    Ellis c
    Schumaker cf
    Herrera lf
    Kershaw p

    Is Herrera really the best option available for LF?

    • Well at least we have Uribe batting fifth.


      • trublu4ever says:

        Donnie is a f**king idiot! to put this piece of crap lineup out there for Kersh!

        • trublu4ever says:

          …it leaves the hitting up to Puig (a kid)…Hanley and AGon, who has been slumping a bit..Like it or not, Dre has been hitting pretty well the past several games…so, of course, sit him!

          • crash24now says:

            Ethier is 6-31 against Richard. Herrera is 1-6, so no better. I’d say it’s a day of rest, but Dre just rested two days on Mon/Tues.

          • messagebear says:

            I totally agree about Andre finally doing a good job hitting and in the field – so you take out the hot hand, right Donnie? If you’re never going to leave Andre to face a lefty, how do you expect him to get in the groove against lefties, period. What a screwed up asshole – Donnie, I mean.

        • I’ve decided it really doesn’t matter what line-up Donnie puts out – his are always crap… batters hitting out of position, slow-footed runners ahead of speedsters, slumping players in, hot hitters out, etc. etc.

  47. lbirken says:

    For once I have to agree with all the above and wonder why Ethier is out of the lineup.

    • oldbrooklynfan says:

      I think it’s because Mattingly like resting people and Ethier is one he rests against lefthanders.

  48. oldbrooklynfan says:

    Hi Everybody
    The previous game on my channel on MLB Extra Innings ended nice and early and the Dodgers & Pards are ready to go.

  49. oldbrooklynfan says:

    Wow a pitching change already because of an injury.
    Tim Stauffer now pitching for the Padres.

  50. oldbrooklynfan says:

    It looks like the pitching change worked out to a Dodger 1-0 lead. Thanks to a Uribe groundout.

  51. Frankly I’m shocked they got a run.

  52. oldbrooklynfan says:

    Denorfia gets that run back.

  53. Been awhile since I’ve checked the standings, well, why would I?, but was surprised to see three clubs that are just as pathetic as we are – Mets, Cubs & Brewers. Of the three, who do you think will end up with a better record than us? I’d say at least two of them.

  54. trublu4ever says:

    Elian…what the hell are you doing?! Ned…why the hell is he on our team?!

  55. oldbrooklynfan says:

    The Pards are really giving it to Clayton.

  56. trublu4ever says:

    Fine lineup Donnie…..god, I wish you were gone!

  57. Well, I’d say game over. They could forfeit the rest of the season and it wouldn’t bother me. Couldn’t be any worse than watching this shit night after night. Until the FO does something about it, nothings ever going to change.

  58. trublu4ever says:

    Congratulations to UCLA on your win and into the finals of the CWS….nice to see one California team doing well 😉

  59. oldbrooklynfan says:

    Finally Hanley knocks one in.

  60. trublu4ever says:

    I have nothing to say that hasn’t been said before.

  61. oldbrooklynfan says:

    Not much to say about this one.

  62. crash24now says:

    32and53 asked which team would show up in San Diego. Now we know – the little leaguers.

    Put a fork in the 2013 Dodgers – they are done.

  63. crash24now says:

    Congratulations. We are now at a season-low 9.5 games out of first place and still 5.5 games out of fourth place. Thanks to us, the Padres are now in second place.

  64. lbirken says:

    At least my UCLA Bruins made it go the CWS with a team that does not score a lot of runs but knows how to win games. Go Bruins.
