Ethier again! Love it. Although Loney batting behind Ramirez gives him more opportunities to GIDP.

karina said...

Urgh, Kemp stole second base, He reached first by single. Ethier's up.

karina said...

Rowand robbed Ethier.

karina said...

Manny HBP. King James is up.

karina said...

King James flied out on the first pitch.

karina said...

Orange-lack already scored, defeating the Dodgers 1-0. One out.

Orel said...

Epale, Karina! Hard to tune in again after last night's debacle.

karina said...

It was heartbreaking. Theme of the week.

karina said...

Epale, Orel!. I 'm watching on TV.

Orel said...

4-0 D'backs, 2nd inning. First place will not be ours today...again.

karina said...

It ain't over till it's over, Orel. We gotta have faith and hope.

Orel said...

Another triple for Ethier!

karina said...

Ethier with a triple!

karina said...

Ethier's lifetime average against Matt Cain: 521.

Orel said...

Your optimism is indefatigable, Karina!

karina said...

Game is tied! good work, Ethier and Kent.

karina said...

It is. It worked, they just tied the game. Besides, we know this is a young aces match, therefore not many tuns will be scored.

karina said...

King James with another interesting choice of shades.

karina said...

SF men at the corners, one out.

Orel said...

Giants are stranding men too....

karina said...

Bills got out of the jam!

Orel said...

Do you like Loney's new sunglasses?

karina said...

I don't know yet, i guess it's the colored glasses...

Orel said...

Dodgers are stranding more men than Gilligan's Island!

karina said...

Dodgers have stranded seven men in 4 innings.

Orel said...

3-1 Giants. This sucks.

Orel said...

Bills is getting singled to death.

Orel said...

Kemp saves Bills' bacon!

karina said...

He's been getting himself in jams since the game started. The giants have left 13 runners on base, so this score could be considered minimal damage.

karina said...

Hahahahahahahaha, Orel!

Orel said...

Kemp triples! One-man wrecking crew!

karina said...

Kemp trying to save saving Bills bacon with his bat, another triple!

Orel said...

Yay, Andre!

karina said...

Ethier with the RBI single!

Orel said...

C'mon Manny, tie this up. Or better....

karina said...

Troncoso is on the bullpen.

Orel said...

AMS (Another Man Stranded)

karina said...

Dbacks 6-Braves 1

Damon said...

Kemp is a stud

karina said...

Kemp with a double, a triple and a stolen base.

Ethier hit a triple and a RBI single.

Pierre? grounded out.

I think Torre should consider this sample size.

Orel said...

Was that Giants fan who interfered with Kemp's ball in play smart or dumb?

karina said...

Dumb, as most fans' interferences.

karina said...

My mom is in the room right now when Ethier is at the plate.

karina said...

Ethier draws a walk! he definitely owns Cain.

Orel said...

Two on, two out, Manny up....

Damon said...

Lets go Manny

Orel said...

Ah, but the fan prevented Kemp from getting a triple.

Orel said...

Ethier is a handsome young man.

karina said...

How lovely would be some long ball right now?

Orel said...

It would be lovely.

Damon said...

woooo manny

Orel said...

MANUEL!

Orel said...

Odds on Broxton appearing in this game?

karina said...

It is lovely. Good job, Manuel Aristides!

Orel said...

126 pitches for Cain. How little does Bochy trust his bullpen?

Damon said...

russ is in a slumb :(

Damon said...

oh no trancoso sucks

karina said...

Mom sees Ethier drawing the walk, she says: that's the handsome young man!. She asks if he started, i say he did, then she goes to ask how he has done so far, i tell her, she says:

"Not only he's handsome, he seems to be a good ballplayer. I don't see why he can't start everyday"

karina said...

Today is the 16th anniversary of Wilson Alvarez's no hit-no run.

Orel said...

Nice avatar, Damon!

Damon said...

berroa is horrible I can't wait for furcal to come back. Shit Hu would probably do better than berroa/ozuna

Orel said...

Vin just said Nomar might be back Tuesday.

Damon said...

Thanks Orel. It's not a dodger one but you really can't go wrong with the ryan express

Orel said...

Kuo in....

karina said...

That was an unforgettable baseball moment in your avatar, Damon.

Damon said...

trancoso should only be pitching in mopup

Orel said...

"Tim McClelland, I love you pal, but boy are you tough." —Vin, on McClelland's late strike calls

karina said...

No damage done. Dodgers still win. Kemp, Ethier and Kent are next.

karina said...

On the TV they said Brox is not available today.

karina said...

Blond Kuo?

Damon said...

Kuo is a better hitter than Pierre. And faster than him too

karina said...

I feel you're in a bitter mood, Damon.

Orel said...

Go Kuo! Go Kuo!

Orel said...

Winn singles, and we still got lucky on the play.

karina said...

Smart approach to the ball, Ethier.

Now, i'm worried.

Orel said...

Fuck, Kuo is pulling a Broxton.

Orel said...

Martin with the fancy-pants sliding catch of Vizquel's botched bunt!

Orel said...

FUCK YOU CASEY BLAKE

karina said...

Rancho Ardiendo. One out. Bad defense by Blake.

karina said...

Game tied. Do you hear my heart breaking?

Orel said...

I can't fucking believe this.

karina said...

Velez, if you hurt my son Martin, we'll have a great problem.

karina said...

Dodgers can't afford to lose Martin, even when he's in a slump.

karina said...

This is humiliating. A couple of walk-offs in a 3-game series, against the Giants.

karina said...

This is the end of a very forgettable week.

Orel said...

fuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuckfuck

Erin said...

I don't believe what I just saw.

karina said...

I'm worried about Martin.

karina said...

I hope this bullpen straightens up tomorrow. Phillies are a very offensive team. If not, they are way in much trouble.

Kingpin329 said...

WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I Fucking hate this bullshit. Everytime this team appears to be on the right track shit like this happens.

The defense really fucked them today. I cant fucking take it anymore.
