Jayson Werth stealing second.

Kind of sums up the state of the Dodgers right now.

Ok, Ok. Since I have been away for vacation, the Dodgers have lost 3 out of 4 games. Thus, I am coming back home tomorrow and expect the blue crew to right the ship.

Orel said...

At least the Lakers are winning. LAL 43, HOU 24, 10:07 left in the 2nd.

Nic j said...

thats what im talking about, Orel.

LA up 53-33!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lakers 64 - Houston 39

Orel said...

Nats tie it up in SF!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Lakers killing Houston 99-61. It's over.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nats have a slim 7-6 lead in the top of the ninth.

Penos Cabell said...

Yeah, this Laker game has been over for a while.

Penos Cabell said...

I hope they go into Houston with this same attitude, and just end this series.

rbnlaw said...

Something about Philadelphia. At least we face Moyer tomorrow.

Steve Sax said...

Come on, Joe Beimel! Two out in the ninth, Nats clinging to a one run lead. Burriss on first.

Steve Sax said...

Lakers up 105-72

Steve Sax said...

wonderful, a throwing error on a pickoff move by beimel advances burriss to scoring position.

Renteria at the plate.

Steve Sax said...

Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick almost got decapitated by that Rocket flying into the crowd. The Closer, indeed.

Steve Sax said...

Yay, it gives TNT more opportunities to show off Kyra Sedgwick. Did we mention that The Closer is on TNT?

I am now realizing I should have used a "six-degrees" joke rather than a "The Closer" joke. My bad.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Renteria walks. Winning run is on for San Fran.

rbnlaw said...

Beimel wants to face Sandoval.

Steve Sax said...

Beimel walks Renteria. Men on first and second. Two out. Come on, Joe.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

WTF!?

rbnlaw said...

Duces wild by the Bay

Penos Cabell said...

Beimel blew it?

Steve Sax said...

Oh, shit, that was bad, Beimel.

Walk off home run, Giants win.

rbnlaw said...

. . .and it gets worse.
Thanks, Joe!

Orel said...

Old friend Joe Beimel gives up a walk-off three-run home run to Pablo Sandoval. Giants are now three games back.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Somewhere Troy is ripping off his sideburns in disgust.

Penos Cabell said...

Joe, you blow.

Penos Cabell said...

I'd still rather have Beimel than Ohman.

Penos Cabell said...

Laker up 3-2. This series ends in Houston on Thursday.

Nic j said...

i dont get the love affair with beimel, he was doing that same stuff towards the end of last year.

Ohman, is pretty much the same guy, just at a cheaper price tag.

rbnlaw said...

"Plaschke says Manny responsible for Beimel melt down in SF."
-more to follow

Penos Cabell said...

Aside from that game ending HR in SF tonight, and a stint on the DL, Beimel has had a much better season and put up much netter numbers than Ohman.

Penos Cabell said...

The money being wasted on Guillermo Mota could have ben spent on Beimel.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The thing is that Beimal is collapsing under pressure. That's the second walk-off he's given up this season.

rbnlaw said...

The money spent on Mota could have bought a fleet of team buses.

StolenMonkey86 said...

But did Werth reach base on a strikeout? I always felt that should be considered stealing first...

Orel said...

Good point, SM86. Doesn't lessen the humiliation any, though.
