Andrew said...

Pierre is clearly wondering when the hell Manny gets a day off.

Orel said...

Manny's first HR makes it 1-0 Dodgers!

karina said...

Wow. Manny being Manny is back

Meanwhile, Bills in 2.2 IP, 5 K, 2 BB

He just walked Helton, after striking out his first 2 batters and allowing a double.

karina said...

In another news, my countryman Cabrera hit a grand slam. Indians 13-Yankees 2. All Indians runs in the second inning. Bottom of the 2th, 2 out.

Penos Cabell said...

amazing

Penos Cabell said...

Manny heating up

karina said...

Manny's second HR!

Nic j said...

Did I seriously just miss two HR's by manny?! That's it I'm making my little leaguers run after the game.

karina said...

Ethier 3-run HR!

Dodgers 5-Rockies 0

karina said...

Bills so far:

5 IP, 2 BB, 6 K. He's spoiling us so much.

Steve Sax said...

Hey nic j, karina, Orel, Andrew, and PC. Sorry I'm late.

Nice three-run mashing by Andre.

SoSG Alex Cora must be melting in that sun!

Steve Sax said...

Just got up my photos and recap from last night's game. Sorry it was so late! --Sax

Steve Sax said...

chad is rolling through five. wow.

karina said...

You don't have to apologize, Steve. You're not late, besides we were holding the fort.

karina said...

Smith walked, Helton doubled, no outs in the top of the 6th.

karina said...

Hawpe 2-run triple. Dodgers 5-Rockies 2

Bills had to give a couple of runs sometime, right?

Nic j said...

It looks like the little leauge red sox are headed for the first L of the season tonight.

Bitter sweet today

Andrew said...

Hey, can we get one of the Sons to do a write up for things I dont understand on "Fox's National game of the week" policy. Clearly, they mean regional. I hate being on the east coast watching a two touchdown game, while the Dodgers are playing well and winning a somewhat tight game and I cant watch despite me shelling out $170 to MLB to get the cable package.

Andrew said...

Oh and I got my first Dodger jersey in the mail today! A nice #27 Kemp road jersey. Ole Neddy promised me not to trade him for at least a year.

19-2 Cleveland.

Dusto Magnifico said...

Anyone else cringe when Mota comes in?

Fred's Brim said...

not sure if i like him going 2 days in a row, or 2 innings in a row for that matter

Fred's Brim said...

Kuo and Mota are going to drive me crazy this year

Dusto Magnifico said...

and then he brings in a struggling Oh Man!

Orel said...

Wow. That inning could have gone a lot worse.

Dusto Magnifico said...

phew!

Fred's Brim said...

yikes - i'll take it
Who's next? Belisario to JB?

Dusto Magnifico said...

Gotta go with Belly

Dusto Magnifico said...

Ethier hitting them in bunches!

Dusto Magnifico said...

Anyone else think Ethier should be hitting third and Manny fourth?

Fred's Brim said...

awesome!

Dusto Magnifico said...

a few threads ago I asked a general question... Ethier v Loney?

Since almost everyone took Loney I did not voice my secret love affair with Ethier... But I feel he can handle the wood better than Loney. Maybe Ethier is just a little more advanced than Loney.

Fred's Brim said...

jeez they need to mercy-rule this stupid yankees game, for the sake of the viewers who have to listen to Tim McCarver

Dusto Magnifico said...

Kemp needs a hit to keep his streak alive.

Fred's Brim said...

there ya go! yay Matty!

Dusto Magnifico said...

YEAH Matty!

Fred's Brim said...

Brad Ausmus already has 1/4th of the hits I thought he'd have this year

Nic j said...

A-po-da-ca!!

Fred's Brim said...

nice work, Juanny!

Nic j said...

OOOOOOO MAAAANNNM

Steve Sax said...

Juan Castro sighting...and a sac fly to make it 8-3 Dodgers!

Hey Orel, what are you doing for dinner?

Fred's Brim said...

Is Ohman really batting or is this gamecast telling fibs?

Steve Sax said...

Even Oh,Man gets into the offensive parade! RBI, 9-3!

Fred's Brim said...

holy crow!

Fred's Brim said...

i guess it will be Ohman in the 8th unless there is trouble. 2 of the next 3 are lefties, maybe Belly to finish?

Dusto Magnifico said...

might as well bring Elbert in.

Alex Cora said...

hey guys. At the game. It was pretty hot but the shade came in our section. Pregame was awesome and got some great pictures. Will post them later. Go blue!

Dusto Magnifico said...

tronco should finish off the game.

Alex Cora said...

Why do they play journeys don't stop believing when we are winning?????

Steve Sax said...

charley steiner just had hall+oates' "out of touch" as his lead-in song from the break.

Gotta love the oates!

Steve Sax said...

Hey AC, they're talking about this "Bluetopia" premiere tonight.

Maybe you should go crash that event, for SoSG's sake.

Steve Sax said...

AC, I thought the same thing last night as we nursed a one-run lead, and they're playing "Don't Stop Believing.". It's like they want the Rockies to come back!

Dusto Magnifico said...

ugh... this could get interesting really fast.

Dusto Magnifico said...

phew.. good win!

karina said...

Dodgers win! see you guys tomorrow
