    Hoping our streak continues tonight with Nolasco on the mound.

  2. trublu4ever says:

    Whew…no Gordon tonight 🙂

  3. Hi Everybody
    Can the Dodgers make it 6 in a row again.
    The Mets are playing pretty good lately and they look like a loose team.
    GO DODGERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. trublu4ever says:

    I’m saying YES….3 in a row!

  5. I wish they’d give us the box score before the game so we can see who the umpires are.

  6. The Mets are really lighting up Nolasco.

  7. Met fans were clapping while the Mets were up.

  8. Nolasco seems to have settled down.

  9. Mejia is pitching a strong game.

  10. Alright it’s a brand new game.

  11. trublu4ever says:

    And, we have the lead! I like it!

  12. WOW, that was close to being ball four but we got the call.

  13. crash24now says:

    The bullpen is getting a real workout tonight.

  14. trublu4ever says:

    A few more insurance runs would be nice.

  15. trublu4ever says:

    We are on a roll! I love L.A. I love the Dodgers….what fun this is!

    • JhallWally says:

      Wooo-Hooo!!! Win streak!!! It is exciting to be a Dodger fan right now. They just continue to amaze me……. I hope it continues all the way thru October and the WS….. I have been skeptical, but it is starting to look like this team is for real…..

  16. ZonaDodger says:

    WTG Kenley….Keep it up boys 🙂

  17. This is a good win with Matt Harvey pitching tomorrow night.

  18. vl4eccjr says:

    This makes the Dodgers winning 7 of 8 of Nolasco’s starts since he joined the club. I just wish he could go deeper in games. He seems to fade after @ 90 pitches. It makes more work for the bullpen.

    • JhallWally says:

      Nice observation and point VL…. But, for a #4 starter, I’ll take it… Much better than we have been getting the last few years….

  19. nedisajerk says:

    The O’s bullpen is normally reliable but not tonight. O’Day just gave up a walkoff HR to Eaton after Davis tied it up.

  20. crash24now says:

    PrimeTicket TV showed Kenley Jansen on the bench during the bottom of the eighth inning. He was so focused. That guy is intense and it shows on the field.

  21. 32and53fan says:

    The Dodgers are playing at a .576 average with 44 games to go. I know that .576 is just a number which came from averaging the horrible first two and a half months with the great last two. Just for fun with numbers, I took .576, multiplied by 44, and added the result to 68. If we play at this rate, we will end up with 93 wins.

    I thought it would be fun to check our predictions from April 3rd.

    crash24now says: April 3, 2013at 4:43 PM (Edit)

    A compilation of the predictions so far: we are quite a bit optimistic than we were one year ago. Last year, on average, we had the Dodgers just barely over .500. In honor of this optimism, I sorted the predictions in descending order of wins:

    Wins Playoffs Who

    100 WS win dodger4life
    95 no guess grizzy
    94 NL West vl4eccjr
    94 NL pennant crash
    93 in the NLCS 32and53fan
    92 no guess trublu4ever
    91 Wildcard enchantedbeaver
    91 NL West oldbrooklynfan
    89 yes lbirken
    88 no jhallwally
    87 Wildcard messagebear
    n/a yes kahlifornia

    • crash24now says:

      I’d like dodger4life to win the predictions sweepstake. Maybe his wins number is going to be too low?

      • 32and53fan says:

        If the Dodgers play .800 ball the rest of the year, they will win 103. At a little over .700, they end with 99 wins. . 614 gives them 95 victories, and if they split the rest (. 500), they end with 90. I hope D4L is the winner too.

  22. kahliforni says:

    I feel the most mind-boggling thing about this unconscious run of Dodger wins is the fact that it comes under Donnie’s watch. Still don’t like him as a National League manager and never will. I really fear his hands on the buttons come playoff crunch time, playoffs which are looking more and more like a reality. But…my opinion is meaningless in the grand scheme of the universe.

  23. Hi Everybody
    The Dodgers will go up against a tough humbre tonight, Cy Young candidate Matt Harvey. Let’s hope Ryu brings his A game again tonight.

  24. Lagares must be still mad about last night.

  25. trublu4ever says:


  26. Put a 0 up there, Ryu.

  27. Really enjoying Vinny’s broadcast tonight. Lots of stories!

  28. nedisajerk says:

    I hate that Goldschmidt and where is that reliable O’s good bullpen at?

  29. enchantedbeaver says:

    This ump’s sure squeezing the shit out of Kenley. Only one of those pitches looked like a true ball.

  30. Great play by Crawford!

  31. enchantedbeaver says:

    I hate when they let a guy take a base with defensive indifference. Cost them a run.

  32. trublu4ever says:

    Way to go Boys…you beat their Ace!

  33. Good game. Hope that Kenley gets a day off tomorrow. He really did not look like himself tonight.


  35. Nite nite everyone 🙂

  36. lbirken says:

    You folks crack me up. I understand many of you did not like it when Mattingly was picked to manage the Dodgers following Torre, another manager most of you disliked as well. Most have made it clear it didn’t matter how well the Dodgers did; winning would not change anyone’s opinion. Far be it from me to ask anyone to change an opinion and sometimes I even agree with some of the criticism but to my simple mind he is pretty much doing the same thing now that he was doing when the team stank. His “crazy” lineups seem to work, the role players are doing a terrific job, League I getting guys out and the bullpen generally is shutting down the opposition. I agree he probably waited too long to settle on Jansen as the closer and he probably did stick with League longer than most of us would, but look at the results. If he was lousy as a manager before is he much better now? Or are the players finally producing? It just seems every move he makes now works. I am not saying he all of a sudden is the best manager in baseball but I am saying winning does solve a lot of problems

    • enchantedbeaver says:

      My opinion hasn’t changed at all Birk, I still think he’s a poor manager. Never was really a question of managing personalities – Torre was able to do that as well, but as strictly an in game and strategic manager, he has no clue. My fear is that weakness will be brought out and be the Achilles heel of this team in the playoffs.

      • trublu4ever says:

        I agree with Beav. Just listening to his post game press conferences proves he hasn’t got a clue 😉

      • JhallWally says:

        I don’t think he is a great manager, but, I don’t think he is terrible.. He seems to have the clubhouse and the players in the right frame of mind…. I guess we will see.. I would like to see Nedcompoop get his walking papers however…

  37. JhallWally says:

    And, might I add, Ryu has kahoona’s… Big, bad ones…. Nice job!!!!

  38. I notice that all this winning hasn’t changed some of the anti- Mattingly thinking but I’m very sure that he’ll be managing the team for a very long time after this unbelievable Dodger run this summer. And I have to say Colletti has won himself a long stay also.

  39. messagebear says:

    Much as I’m against them personally, I too now believe that Donnie and Ned are here to stay long term. With the transformation in team performance from the first half of the season to now, there’s no question that ownership will reward both of them handsomely.
    If you listen to any of the pundits on network TV, Donnie has done an outstanding job – he’s cool, calm, and collected and even faced up to Kasten in a straight forward “team first” attitude when things were going at their worst. The press will stand with both of them regardless of how we make out in the playoffs.

    The deal for Hanley and the Boston bunch is beginning to look very good for Ned as well. When he had the money available, he secured Ryu and Puig – how much better can you do than that? Nolasco was a good call as well. Harang, Capuano and all the other past dealings won’t mean squat for Kasten and company when it comes to evaluating Ned.

    I’m, of course, very glad the way the team is doing – doesn’t even matter if Matt is around or not. Maybe he wasn’t even the right team leader. But, us skeptics will probably need to find a subject other than Donnie and Ned to harp on, because the press and presumably most of the fans will be on their band wagon at least as long as the success continues.

    • lbirken says:

      I don’t read other baseball blogs or facebook much but I suspect those spaces have a lot of Donnie critics as well. I think it was easy to complain when things were not going well but I do not think any of you are bandwagon types. You call it as you see it. I think my real question is how much a manager really means to a team. Look at the Angels. Is Scoscia doing anything different? Is he the reason the Angels are having a horrible season and well below expectations? Is Bruce Bochy all of a sudden a lousy manager (or most likely did the Giants overachieve the past few seasons)? And what about Kirk Gibson. Is he doing a good job this season?

      I just find it interesting that fans can find so much fault with a manager and the people paid to report such things cannot get out of their own slobber to praise Donnie now that the team is doing so well.

      • kahliforni says:

        As I wrote yesterday, this incredible run is even more incredible because Donnie is at the helm. This team will cool…it HAS to cool…and then, come October, we’ll see how he handles playoff baseball. So far, the real infusion of energy is from Mr. Puig and the pitching. I still maintain that, when push comes to shove, Donnie’s lacking as an NL-style manager. And in a short series, that may hurt. And as far as Ned goes, sorry, Puig and Ryu–the 2013 success stories–have the thumbprints of Kasten. Oh, and have I mentioned I don’t care for Donnie and Ned, an other-worldly run of wins, notwithstanding???

  40. The D’backs are really making the Dodgers work hard. They don’t seem to give us enough room to breath. The Dodgers have to stay on the move.
    The D’backs don’t seem to be letting up.

  41. Hi Folks
    I’m hoping Cappy & Fed-ex can keep their feet on the gas, while the rest of the guys keep pushing.

  42. trublu4ever says:

    What a throw by Yasiel!

  43. Fantastic throw by Puig to nail Byrd.

  44. trublu4ever says:

    A run for them already…come on Cappy!

  45. Not too good here for Cappy.

  46. trublu4ever says:


  47. Are the Dodgers out of this game already?

  48. Is it time for another Met no-hitter?

  49. vl4eccjr says:

    Crappy’s pegging the old suck-o-meter tonight! 😦
    Can we get Fife back?

  50. Donnie probably wants Cappy to get through the 5th.

  51. crash24now says:

    Cupaguano is getting pounded tonight. Need to bring in a long reliever (do we have one?)

    With this offense, don’t ever count the Dodgers out.

  52. Bad call at 1B and Adrian runs like me.

  53. I have a feeling that might be all for Cappy.

  54. Well we scratched in a run, thanks to M.Ellis and Jerry knocked in another one.

  55. vl4eccjr says:

    Still breathing. . .The pulse is stronger.

  56. Another nice outing for Withrow.

  57. crash24now says:

    JP Howell bails out League.

    Now let’s get some runs!!!!!

  58. crash24now says:

    Marmol?? Geez, Donnie wants to give Byrd his cycle.

  59. Let’s go Dodgers . . . let’s go Dre!

  60. crash24now says:

    IT’S A DRE DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

  61. trublu4ever says:


  62. vl4eccjr says:

    WTG DRE!!!
    The cardiac kids are alright!

  63. crash24now says:

    Never say die. Say Dre instead!

  64. Extra’s here we go . . . .

  65. crash24now says:

    It’s pretty ballsy for Donnie to leave Marmol in with the score tied. Or, should I say, it’s pretty stupid!

  66. crash24now says:

    Uribe almost got it done, but not quite.

  67. Agon!!! Wow – awesome come from behind victory!

  68. crash24now says:

    Adrian brings in Puig!

  69. trublu4ever says:


  70. WE WIN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  71. nedisajerk says:

    Yeah Gonzo whoaaaaaaaaaa!

  72. The best strecth in the majors since 1942.

  73. crash24now says:

    This is a hot hot hot hot team

  74. nedisajerk says:

    Chris Capuano: 5 IP, 10 H, 4 R, 3 K.
    Bullpen: 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 9 K.

  75. vl4eccjr says:


  76. lbirken says:

    Incredible! Puig takes the extra base and it pays off. The only thing that would have made this win even better would have Marmol’ s drive a walk off home run. Now that would have been something.

  77. kahliforni says:

    The last three big comeback wins–in Toronto, last Friday with the Rays, and tonight–all bailed out the same left-handed starting pitcher. Read a while back that Puig was getting MVP talk…felt like hype…but there’s no denying Puig is something special and that his arrival ushered in this seeming invincible run.

  78. kahliforni says:

    Ethier has always been big-time clutch late in the game.

  79. kahliforni says:

    If the Beard is coming, Dee must be leaving.

  80. crash24now says:

    The offense can only get better when Kemp returns and Gordon gets sent back to Albuquerque.

    Add that to a great starting pitcher rotation and a bullpen that has really solidified. Playoff bound, baby!

  81. 40-8. That’s just unbelievable.

  82. Dodger4life says:

    On the road again
    Just can’t wait to get on the road again.

    The Phillies are 20.5 games back of the Braves and 15.5 games behind in the wild card race.

    But we all know how hostile the environment can be there. It has potential to be a good barometer, of how the Boy’s handle aggressive adversity.

    The way this team has come together over the past 50 games, was unbelievable, in the month of May. In the month of August ,it is simply pure joy.

  84. grizzy says:

    Frank Deford on Nat’l Public Radio had some interesting comments on Ichiro and Pete Rose yesterday. In short, Ichiro should get special recognition for all his hits, both here and Japan, and Rose has paid for his mistakes long enough, so they should go into the hall of fame together. If you never listen to his program, Deford likes to play the devil’s advocate and at times makes some pretty good points. It’s on NPR under sports.
    Assuming we make the playoffs, I do not see Capuano on the post season roster. I think we’d get more use out of the relievers we’re collecting.
    I don’t think Don or Ned are as bad as some us on here think. Seems to me they are OK, not fantastic, but above average.

    • crash24now says:

      Regarding Capuano, I definitely agree. We really don’t need a fifth starter in the playoffs, given the days off that are granted during the playoff schedule. There are plenty of pitchers not on the current 25 man roster that would do better than Capuano in relief: Brian Wilson, Stephen Fife, Jose Dominguez (if healthy), etc.

  85. koufax1963 says:

    So was it Donnie that chose Dre to PH last night? Pushing the right buttons. Was it Donnie who had uribe sac bunt vs the rays to move the runners up and they scored? Donnie looks good when all the players are producing, if they weren’t he looks idiotic? And I believe this team is hungry for the ring!

  86. crash24now says:

    Good riddance, Dee Gordon.

    Welcome back, Scott Van Slyke.
