Post-Game 40 Thread: What do Ryan Church and a bad lover have in common?

They both skip third base!

DODGERS 3, METS 2 (11)

Of course, FIVE errors by the Mets helped.

"It wasn't a bad game, it was a nightmare game for the New York Mets. It might very well have been the worst game the Mets have played since Casey Stengel and the '62 Mets."

—Vin Scully

"Can't nobody here play this game?"
I believe that was the original Stengel quote.

Vin was in rare form last night. When he mentioned that Wolf had never faced Tatis(?), he followed that with, ". . .and vice versa." My wife then said, "Duh."

I was surprised my wife stuck that game out until the 11th. I might even get her to a game this year.

I feel bad for Wolf. The guy has gone from putative 4th starter to one of the best number 2s in baseball and only has 2 wins to show for it. I know wins are overrated, but still.

Randy Wolf is the Dodgers' new Derek Lowe.

The less sweaty version.

Lowe last night: 8 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, on his way to a his fifth consecutive win. He lost but the Braves are in a cold streak now.

Anyhow, i don't think anyone misses him, thanks to the Lord.
