AOK in the ATL

Chad Billingsley delivered in last night's game. Here, Billingsley delivers in last night's game.


Matt Kemp's three-run home run in the fifth inning was like a walk in the park.


Jason Schmidt hits a pinch-hit single in the sixth. Can you say "utility man"?

Think Shmitty is playing for a contract?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Schmidt would have to be a 2B or 1B with his arm.

koufax said...

MLSF, who has the worst arm on the dodgers: beast mode, schmidt or the 12 year old bat boy?

fanerman said...

No way Pierre can throw a ball 86 miles per hour.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Beast Mode. The only reason he wasn't moved to 2B is because he's a lefty.

In that picture, Schmidt looks like some random dude who won a "Take an at-bat in a Major League Game" fantasy contest.

I was hoping by the headline of this post and the first picture that we were getting good news re Bills and his hamstring (or hi hyperextended knee).

Any new word? It seems like he's fine, but lordy we need him and right when he was really picking it back up. Hope his being pulled isn't a mental setback as well.

Orel said...

It's being reported as a cramp, which is good news.

Dusty Baker said...

Nothing a little Midol won't cure.

Meanwhile, the Delwyn Young trade is finally complete:

And no, I don't sit around and read 'Topes notes all day. Hat tip to True Blue LA's tweet.

I thought the player to be named later would have been Delwyn Young.

Fred's Brim said...

they'll probably trade him within a year anyway

doug mientkiewicz just tweeted that he felt a pop in his shoulder and is needless to say not ready to return yet.
