    Sorry this isn’t fancy….however, GO DODGERS!

  2. trublu4ever says:

    Here’s our lineup:
    Ramirez (DH)

    Ryu will take the mound.

  3. It should be a good game.
    GO DODGERS!!!!

  4. trublu4ever says:

    Wow…2 runs for us already!

  5. AGON didn’t waste any time getting two more RBI.

  6. crash24now says:

    A-Gon with the big double!

  7. crash24now says:

    Kemp follows with another RBI!

  8. KEMP makes it 3-0. for a nice quick start.

  9. crash24now says:

    Love those crooked numbers in our first inning!

  10. trublu4ever says:


  11. crash24now says:

    URIBE! You bet!

  12. Uribe really hit that one. 5-0

  13. Very nice! Good start to this game. I will admit that Verlander hasn’t been himself lately, but still, it’s great to strike first; hopefully, we’ll strike often.

  14. I don’t like the way Ryu looks.5-1

  15. Ryu doesn’t look like he has anything. I don’t think this lead will last long.

  16. Ryu really looks bad. 5-3.

  17. trublu4ever says:

    The umpire isn’t helping him either. He won’t give him the corner strikes!

  18. crash24now says:

    oh geez

  19. Does any one think Ryu will get any better tonight? 5-5.

  20. A terrible night for Ryu. Now with the score 6-5 Tigers, I hope Wright can change the momentum.

  21. koufax1963 says:

    rojas applies the tag properly on hunter and the 2nd inning is different. this may be the worse game, and lets hope it wont be repeated, the blue boys have played

  22. Just another one of those nights.

  23. Kemp is now batting .275.

  24. Here’s hoping Greinke does a lot better than Ryu did tonight and GO A’S

  25. lbirken says:

    Now that was an ugly game. Hopefully playing in daylight will help.

  26. Thankfully Oakland beat the gnats so we get to keep our one game lead. The Great Dodger in the Sky smiled on us, even when we didn’t deserve it.

  27. enchantedbeaver says:

    Didn’t figure Ryu would beat Verlander, just didn’t think it would be that ugly. To me there’s no doubt this team needs another frontline starter.

    There’s still nothing about this team that says champion to me – too many holes – bully, bench, fielding, hitting. They’re going to have to vastly tighten everything up before anyone looks to buy WS tickets. They’re too Jeckel and Hyde to get much accomplished.

  28. JhallWally says:

    Wow.. Total ineptness…. Ryu is running out of gas… Either really sucked…..

  29. Well last night we saw that we win some, we lose some and sometimes we get our ass kicked and here we go again today.

  30. trublu4ever says:

    This game isn’t starting much better.

  31. Dodger4life says:

    My feed was having difficulty loading yesterday…so, I missed the first half of the game. I did see the first inning though. With the bats we have in our lineup, you’d think they would instill a bit of fear into an opposing pitcher. How can you score 5 runs off a guy then go flat for the next 8 innings…

  32. The Dodgers are seeing why AL teams are having a hard time beating the Tigers.

    • enchantedbeaver says:

      Or it could be showing that this team just can’t compete against an elite team.

      No pitch one day, no hit the next. These guys just aren’t that good. They can get away with it against the likes of Colorado, but not good teams and certainly not against an elite team. They’ll be lucky to split with the Angels when they play, and they’re going to have a real hard time against the Nats and Braves. Hell, they couldn’t even beat Cleveland.

  33. Dodger4life says:

    Hanley, AGon and Kemp…
    Where’s The Beef

  34. lbirken says:

    Tough when the Dodgers get a leadoff double and leave him at third.

  35. enchantedbeaver says:

    Only way this team can compete against anything more than an average pitcher is to hope the starter can at least put up enough zeros to keep them even for awhile. Been that way all year. Until they can start playing sound fundamental baseball – moving runners over, not doing stupid things on the base paths, consistently getting runner in from third when there are less than two outs, not giving away outs both on offense and defense – they can’t and won’t go anywhere. And this current group isn’t capable of ever playing smart, fundamental baseball from what I’ve seen. That’s on Ned for not knowing how to build a team in the first place, and on Donnie for letting major leaguers get away with all the sloppiness he does.

    Pretty sad too when you have a $240M team and you have to depend on Rojas to provide you with your only run.

    • JhallWally says:

      It is pathetic and UNACCEPTABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      We both know and have known for years that Nedcompoop and Dildon need to be shown the door….. We will not win a WS with them…..

  36. lbirken says:

    Not that I could do any better but it is hard to watch major league hitters swing at pitches out of the strike zone, even when they know that pitch is coming. Yes, not much good will happen when the only run comes off the bat of someone not expected to do much with the bat. For whatever reason, this Dodger team does typically does not come back from deficits but usually wins when it gets a lead early (last night an exception) And the Dodgers don’t make things any easier by making so many outs on the base paths. Clearly Tiger hitters took what was given to them while Dodger hitters could not make the necessary adjustments. Hopefully the Dodgers will bounce back against the Padres.

  37. The good news is we won’t have to face the Tigers for the rest of the regular season.

  38. enchantedbeaver says:

    Nice 0 for 14 performance by the heart of the order. This line-up might be a lion on paper, but its nothing but a slimy slug against good or better pitching. This team’s embarrassing against an elite, and I might add, real contender. Every weakness this team has, has been exploited by the Tigers and will continue to be by any team with a winning record. Keep in mind that pretty much through all of June the Dodgers played 62% of its games against .500 teams or under, and it still struggled. You just cant play this way against winning teams and expect to hold your own.

    • lbirken says:

      Well said.

    • kahliforni says:

      This team seems to lack a spark. They score 5 runs in first inning yesterday…are caught an inning later…and score a total of one run over the next 17 innings. They are the perfect mirror image of their manager. The Dodgers, as we all know, haven’t won a championship in 26 years. Donnie never has.

      • JhallWally says:

        Touchee’ Kahli…. This team will not win anything significant with Nedcompoop and Didon at the helm…

  39. lbirken says:

    After a long and difficult trial, the Stowe case against the Dodgers has reached a verdict. Teflon Frank McCourt was let off the hook, which does not surprise me. The Dodgers as a business (or more likely the insurance company) was found 25% responsible.

    Not sure how the jury decided the amounts to award but I can understand how the jury had trouble deciding responsibility. Clearly the Dodgers did not have adequate security but the victim had some responsibility even though the jury said no. I am not convinced any amount of security could have avoided the confrontation in the parking lot. The two culprits are in prison and will certainly not provide any monetary damages. So it is unlikely Stow will collect on the award and I am not sure if the award included attorney fees. All in all a black eye in Dodger Stadium history.

  40. Dodger4life says:

    Where’s the Beef
    A-Gon has struck-out 66 times to date.

    Kemp has struck-out 81 times to date

    Puig has struck-out 72 times to date.
    In the past, when the above mentioned players are dialed in… They make contact.

  41. Dodger4life says:

    A.J. Ellis is homer-less in his first 100 at bats this season.
    Where’s the Beef

  42. Dodger4life says:

    Ethier has a paltry 4 home-runs to date. Same as Crawford, except with 100 more at bats.
    Where’s the Beef

  43. Dodger4life says:

    The team has a home record of 22-23. After starting off July, by failing to win the first series on they’re home-turf.
    Where’s the Beef

  44. Dodger4life says:

    Has anyone hit a walk-off home-run this season…
    Has anyone hit back-to-back home-runs this season…
    How about multiple home-run games… Can anyone top Uribe’s 3 from last season….
    Where’s the Beef

  45. Dodger4life says:

    How come out of the crop of center-fielders we have, none even came close to being named to the All-Star team…
    Where’s the Beef

    • messagebear says:

      Well, maybe the reason you don’t see any beef in the lineup is because they all fancy themselves as stallions.

      • Dodger4life says:

        You mean like Sylvester Stallone, bear….
        What about my prime, Mick? At least you had a prime! I had no prime, I had nothin’!

  46. koufax1963 says:

    Do not think that Kershaw pitching today means a W. The guy for the padres has a .92 ERA, a small sample size for this cuban pitcher as he just started in the Majors for 3 games two vs a pathetic gnats team. I wonder if Yasiel played with or vs. him?
