Post-Game 81 Thread: Caught Gawking

PADRES 7, DODGERS 4

Most of the excitement of today's game was confined to the first inning, as Manny Ramirez hit his first post-suspension home run. After that, it felt like the Dodgers offense was caught gawking at Manny, expecting him to hit a tater in every at-bat. Both Randy Wolf and Josh Geer kept it close until the seventh, but the Dodger bullpen finally cracked, conspiring with the defense (three errors on the day) to allow six Padres runs. The Dodgers scratched out single runs in the eighth and ninth innings, but that's where the game ended. Damn towels.

In a game filled with horseshit, Heath Bell celebrating BEFORE the final strike call was the horseshittiest.

Series win tomorrow?

1) Andruw Jones just went deep for his 10th HR of the season. A-hole.

2) Did Lou Gehrig say something famous on July 4th one time? It seems like I've heard mention of this a time or two today. Jesus, MLB, there's such a thing as overkill.

The real question is whether or not Belly's outing was a fluke or a sign of the bull-pocalypse.
