Game 58 Thread: June 6 vs. Phillies, 1p

MANNYWATCH: 22 GAMES
DODGERS' RECORD WITHOUT MANNY: 17-11

"We haven't hit....It's been squeezing that blood out of a rock."

Hiroki Kuroda (1-1, 2.53) vs. Joe Blanton (4-3, 5.86).

COMMENTS: Do you believe in momentum? The Dodgers, fresh off last night's walk-off victory, will try to channel that energy into success against Blanton — who's won three straight. The Dodgers counter with Kuroda, who threw 86 pitches over five innings in his first post-rehab start.

Although yesterday was sweet, don't forget the Dodger offense is still essentially in deep-freeze. For the cynical (not us!), last night's ninth-inning rally featured as many walks and errors as hits. Although Joe Torre professes unconcern at his team's lack of hitting, it doesn't mean he isn't anticipating the return of some early-inning offense.

"We're going to hit — it's just a matter of when that stuff is going to start up again," Torre said. Hey, why not today?

Nailed #200!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So it's the top of the order for the Dodgers. Pierre, O-Dog, and Ethier.

"Boy Rollins is colder than...something that's cold."

A May Andre Ethier?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I would have gone with Frostellicus to keep with the theme.

Orel said...

Nic j said...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I could go for an O-Dog homer.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh man, this game is going into the 13th.

Orel said...

It's like we started a new game. No more hitting.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

So do we have to wait for the 18th to get another run?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Full count to Ethier.

Nic j said...

There's No Place Like Home by Ray Colcord- 227 Lyrics


There's no place like home
With your family around you you're never alone
When ya know that your loved
You don't need to roam
Cause there's no place like home

Time's are changing everyday
We won't get by with the same old ways
No-oooo pulling together will make it right
With help from are friends I know we can right

Cause there's no place like home
With your family around you you're never alone
When you know that your loved
You don't need to roam
Cause there ain't no place like
Better believe it
I said their no place like home
"I mean no place child" .

Dodgers playing like they're the phils.

Damn. Missed a good thread, but got a good deal on flip-flops at the Rainbow outlet store.
Dave and Busters had the game on, so I saw most of it.
