Post-Game 104 Thread: Questionable

BRAVES 4, DODGERS 3

I didn't catch this one, but today's rare one-run loss for the Dodgers seems like one to forget. Questionable baserunning by Matt Kemp and Orlando Hudson, a questionable call by umpire Tom Hallion, a frustrating throwing error by Russell Martin, Kemp ending the game on a backwards K...all on regional television. (The lone bright spot? Another Andre Ethier home run.) Let's hope the Dodgers perform with a little more 'zazz on national TV tomorrow.

it was russell martin's error and his failure to catch the rocket from ethier the next play that costed them the game.

if you blame someone, it wasn't wolf. it was martin.

I blame Oakland

what do u blame oakland for?

Umps stank. Martin stank. How many times can Hudson get doubled up?

Ethier continued his run. Wolf pretty solid as usual, but as usual comes up frustrated. Just like me.

I need to get out of the house and let off some steam.

This was awful and I too blame Martin. He needs to come up big the last two months here.

Ironic that Lowe, former king of low LA run support, beats Wolf, current king of low run support.

On the bright side, the 100SS update should be pretty easy

Can I retake the trade poll?

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, one actually CAN change one's vote. I was kidding. Sort of.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Actually, you can.

I couldn't understand why O-Dog didn't even try to run back after McClouth's diving catch. Apparently, he forgot that there was only one out.

Let's just get the series win tomorrow and all of us Dodger fans will stop yipping!
