    I see Donnieboy still has Crawford in left field. I’d say Donnie is out in left field most of the time.

  2. crash24now says:

    I’m cringing at the potential lineups for Game Two today. Who needs rest? Gonzalez, Ramirez, Olivo, Crawford. So that gives us something like:

    Gordon 2b
    Puig rf
    Kemp cf
    Ethier lf
    Uribe 3b
    Van Slyke 1b
    Turner ss
    Butera c
    Crawford dh

  3. Two errors Two runs.

  4. Dodger4life says:

    What a bunch of horse manure… Neither Hanley, nor Crawford paying attention.

  5. crash24now says:

    Runners at first and second, no outs. Are we going to get any runs out of this?

  6. crash24now says:

    Puig!!!!! 2 RBI double!

  7. trublu4ever says:


  8. crash24now says:

    ……….still waiting for Hanley and Matt to catch fire.

    • crash24now says:

      …actually, Hanley’s got a seven game hitting streak, with five extra base hits in those seven games. Not too shabby.

  9. That was good, getting right back in and taking the lead.

  10. Hey …A.Gon actually scored on that double by Kemp..

  11. If Crawford doesn’t start hitting, he’s going to be hard to trade.(lol)

  12. Haren looks like he weakened a bit.

  13. That looked too far away to tell.

  14. enchantedbeaver says:

    Its my considered opinion that Carl Crawford sucks. He really really sucks.

  15. I can’t believe how Haren recovered from that 5th inning.

  16. crash24now says:

    At the risk of a jinx…

    The MLB record for most hits in a double-header is nine.

  17. crash24now says:


  18. Uribe got robbed of an RBI by a fan. Nice to see Olivo knock it in…………OH… Crawford got a hit.

  19. crash24now says:

    Olivo and Crawford join the RBI party!

  20. Another good outing by Haren.

  21. enchantedbeaver says:

    With our bullpen, its always a hire-wire act without a net.

  22. trublu4ever says:

    One down…one to go.

  23. A good job by Perez.

  24. 32and53fan says:

    Nice game for Olivo.

  25. Dodger4life says:

    Well the first two games are in the win column, shall we make it three?

  26. enchantedbeaver says:

    Nice to see some bats come alive. That’s #1 of the next 10,000 wins. Don’t think I’ll be around to see them finish that next batch though.

  27. Patterson in there to throw strikes leading to a run. Better luck next inning.

  28. 32and53fan says:

    I really don’t see what Puig did wrong, other than a slight hesitation. He never even looked or stepped towards 2B, as far as I could tell from the video clip. 


    Puig be like WTF?!!
    Lopes be like Meh.

  29. Puig has 8 hits in a row.

  30. Let’s hope the Dodgers don’t let that one run stand up for the Twins.

  31. Johnson always managed to get the leadoff hitter in an inning out.

  32. Dodgers back to their old trick 1-6 w RISP. They’ve left men on in every inning, 8 total..

  33. Just two shaky innings for Patterson.
    And 3 solid ones.

  34. enchantedbeaver says:

    Heaven forbid these assholes put in a full day’s work with the bat.

  35. Still a one run ballgame.
    GO DODGERS!!!!!

  36. Come on .. Don’t leave SVS on third.


  38. trublu4ever says:

    Ugh….I See You…didn’t 😉

  39. Boy that was sloppy.

  40. 32and53fan says:

    Going… going… A-Gon!

  41. crash24now says:

    bases left loaded.

  42. Unbelievable to say the least,

  43. 14 LOB 2-10 w RISP.

  44. enchantedbeaver says:

    Guess Donnie’s conceding the game.

  45. enchantedbeaver says:

    Must be the new and improved Wilson.

  46. Extree,extree,extree

  47. enchantedbeaver says:

    When was the last time the boys ever swept a double header?

  48. trublu4ever says:

    Talk all you want about Dre…Matt is swinging at crap! Then, gets pissed on a called 3rd strike!

  49. trublu4ever says:


  50. crash24now says:

    Scott Van Slyke!!! Nice shot!

  51. crash24now says:

    Butera with the bat!!!!

  52. BUTERA HR a two run lead.

  53. trublu4ever says:

    Holy Crap! Butera goes yard!

  54. Let’s hold them guys.

  55. trublu4ever says:

    Oh, boy!

  56. crash24now says:

    Good thing I didn’t cut my nails today….now I’ve got something to bite.

  57. crash24now says:


  58. crash24now says:

    Puig hit the cutoff man!!! Call the newspapers!!!!

  59. crash24now says:

    Yess! How sweep it is!

  60. enchantedbeaver says:

    Man, nothing is ever easy.

  61. VICTORY IS OURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  62. trublu4ever says:


  63. 32and53fan says:

    Dodged a bullet. Something must be wrong with Jansen. Throwing 89 instead of 99… doesn’t sound good.

  64. grizzy says:

    Funny, none of the accounts I’ve seen on the second game address Jansen’s ineffectiveness. Barely a mention. Only on here.

  65. JhallWally says:

    Hey, the whole idea coming in for the new ownership was to rebuild our farm system…….. All of a sudden, we have players that are ready for prime time…… Blocked by expensive PVL’s…
    When will our new ownership/management pull the plug on the old underachieving players and start the young guys?

    I would rather watch Pederson and Van Slyke over Crawford…..

  66. Dodger4life says:

    It didn’t look like Jansen had much feel for the baseball. He was rubbing it down and even changed balls once. So, it is hard to say whether it was due to the inclement weather, or something else? He threw the slider most of the time. One can only hope that he just couldn’t adjust to the cold.
    The weather will be warmer in Miami, so, we’ll find out soon I suspect.
    It drives me buggy that Donnie use’s a high number of guys to close out a game.

    • trublu4ever says:

      Kenley will be okay. He still better than 90% of the closers out there. The Umpiring crew was pathetic last night…which didn’t help much.

  67. trublu4ever says:

    I’m more upset at having to hear Charley on road trips. Orel is okay…knows a lot about the game but, Steiner is almost as bad as Krud & Krap!

  68. Dodger4life says:

    My shockwave kept crashing every time they went to commercial.. Then I would have to resign in. Then after a while they told me I was signing in too many times. So, I listened to Monday on the radio. I like Monday… I re-watched the last inning this morning.

  69. Nellyjune says:

    Good Morning/Afternoon wonderful Dodger fans! I am sitting here at the Untied States Masters Swimming Spring National Championships and the team I am swimming with happens to be sitting next to a team from where?……………..Columbus, Ohio! Can’t help but think of you Jhall! Most are proudly wearing their Ohio State apparel. Have a fabulous day!
