Random rantings and ravings about the Los Angeles Dodgers, written by a small consortium of rabid Dodger fans. With occasional comments on baseball, entertainment, pop culture and life in general.
YANKEES 8, DODGERS 6 (10)
FUCK YOU GEORGE SHERRILL!!!!!!
whoa! dueling PGTs? what's a dodger to do?
The dog in this PGT photo had it better than us Dodger fans tonight. I'm moving over to the other thread before that fact pisses me off any more.
I dunno, win?
this is like the scooby doo/in and out of rooms routine. i'm heading to the "i hate everybody" PGT
This is disappointment, anger and sadness at the highest. I think it's the first time I see two different PGT.
This PGT is so much more roomy.
Last call for the top thread. I'm back hearer for the duration.
Great, Dodgers, are you proud? Now you have Mrs Dusty and MDIL reading the PGTs here. You happy now, Torre?
The good thing about hitting bottom is the only way left is up, RIGHT?
Quick everybody mind the bad language!
A good manager knows which horse to ride and when to change horses mid-stream. Torre's a great clubhouse manager and a marginal field manager.
@karinaI dunno, let's ask the d-backs.
Or you could just die at the bottom.
@Neebs, Joe knows all about horses.
we got 12 year olds on dodgertalk complaining about defensive subs, haha,
@DBIn that case, que malo los imbeciles.
I'm starting to question Torre's clubhouse management these days, too, though.
I hate when a player I've come to like falls the fuck apart. Breezy was a good story last year, but now he's Lance fucking Carter. Time to cut bait.
@NicThose are probably RB's kids calling in.
Do we have a decent catcher in the system?
Lucas May is a pretty good hitter. Not a great catcher.
@neeebsSantana-baiting is frowned upon.
@NeeebsYes. He plays for Indians now.
I would not argue with trying to shop martin this year, he might be non-tendered next year.
Martin: not a good hitter and a marginal fielding catcher. What's not to like?!
Santana? he plays the guitar AND baseball?
Speaking of players I like falling the fuck apart...
I want to punch Santana-whiners in the balls. (Present company and those without balls excepted.)
I cannot for the life of me say Shin-Choo Soo's name correctly.
Im still too upset about Roberto Clemente to care about Santana.
The Dodger: GIving away allstars since 1954
@Mr C @Nic J when you go to bed tonight, I want you to remember how you crushed a girl's tiny gleam of hope.
@joshGenrally agreed, but I will continue to hold it as a strike against Napalm Ned.
I know it's the disappoint talking, but right this they could trade everyone not named Kershaw and I wouldn't bat an eye.
@JoshAgree. No whining from me re Santana. Just sayin'. Those other Dodger bloggers really whine about this, though. They need to let go almost as much as my father in law needs to let go of the Rams-to-St.Louis bit.
"@Mr C @Nic J when you go to bed tonight, I want you to remember how you crushed a girl's tiny gleam of hope."HAH! That's a heavy burden you guys will have to bear. How can you sleep at night?
So, according to you, I'll have to give up my son.
I need an avatar change, but it's tough to do on the phone.
You might have to put your son up for adoption, Karina. :-(
I'll be sleeping easy on a pile of out of date J.Martin jersey's bought from the clearance section.totally kidding.
MDIL: There's nothing we can do about it.Dusty: We can whine.MDIL: We just have to look on the bright side.Mrs Dusty: At least we're not the Cubs.
@karinaThe only one that I really fear can't turn it around is Sherrill. I'm disappointed in Russ, and I know he's still got the ability. I don't know where his head is at right now.
Crap, I have to work tomorrow, but I don't think I'll catch much sleep tonight.
In actuallity i dont mind JMart, i just dont expect a whole lot out of him.As long as he doesnt drop below Jason Kendall.
Thanks DustyI was once again talking to the bartender whileeveryone bailed to the next bar and I am thinking they are all out on a smoke break.
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
@Mr C I know you're sorry but I want to apologize for my oversensitivity. Tonight doesn't feel all right.@Nic J that was funny, but cruel*sigh*
I just think that JMart seems not to have very intelligent ABs. He does get lots of walks, but I'd also like for him to hit with a bit of power since he's built like a brick shithouse and should be able to yank some out. And he continues to swing at a lot of bad pitches.He needs to practice his throw to second, too. It's often off line.
You know some people are PO'd when there are over 50 comments in a MFPGT late into the evening on a Sunday night.
I don't want to give my son in adoption though I do recognize it's not the same player that deserved that moniker.
I think Mr. F has hit a glitch tonight.
@Mr C it's 1:18 am for me and no sleep yet.
I only have 11 comments in the last 500? What sort of FIFA comment counter is that?Hell I have 11 in the past ten minutes.
No sleep til Brooklyn!
Oops. Now I'm Josh NoPhoto.I blame Sherrill.
At least didn't just get swept by the Os.
i dont think the iphone lets you change your avatar photo for some reason. Ive tried many times with no success.
@DB, we have to have something to look forward to next year.
To a couple of people in the other PGT:Broxton should have never been in to begin with. Period. 4 straight days of pitching/warming up to pitch before today, this is ALL ON TORRE. 4 run lead, Belisario had just thrown only 12 pitches in the 8th.Torre needs to be gone, now.
JMart is the least of our problems. Bullpen sucks. Big game Broxton gets stuck when th fastball doesn't blow people away. Aging veterans. A centerfielder who should be a captin this year but wants to pose instead. Oh a fuckin absentee owner. But hey i have my 2009 world series towel now.
@NicI think it's kinda funny that you know the iPhone's Blogger access won't let you change your avatar, but you keep trying.We really are sick!
this is all Billingsley's fault.
I blame Nixon.
I blame Greg Brock.
I blame Columbus, why couldn't he have just made it to India.
...and Nixon (not Otis)
I blame J.D Drew and Andruw Jones
Can't argue with that, Karina.
If Andruw Jones would have just eaten Frank McCourt when he was here we would never be in this mess.
Yeah Brox is overused. Floppy breezy's demise has killed this club. We apparently won't use Jeff for more than one out. Right hand specialist? What a fuckin mess.
Here's a good headline:"Red Sox bury Lincecum " -SI
Right hand specialist?That was like me in junior high.
I am having a Deja vu from the Broxton meltdown in Game 4. .
I think Broxton is having deja vu from the Broxton meltdown in Game 4.
This girl will try to count sheep and fall asleep.Tomorrow, she'll find out the Dodgers won the game 6-3 and everything that happened afterwards was a cruel joke of her subconscious.Good night princes of So Cal, Kings of the West Coast (and your princesses)
Keep the faith, Karina. Someone needs to! TOmorrow is another day.The sports gods mocked me today. I capitulate at this point.
Good night karina.
Bless you, upcoming short work week.
Crazy thing was I was watching the gamewith my paps and he said "big game vs Good hitters, broxton better come out blowing it up or he is going to get worn down". He needs another pitch. Glad I declined to see tomorrows game. A win will make me smile but I can't put up with a loss in person right now.
Night all. Another day, another battle, I guess.
@NicJ,While that may be true, I'm generally closer to glitching than most people.
Oh and fuck Joe Morgan. It took him two seconds to call out Dodger fans leaving early. I am glad Orel said if it was Giant fans the Dodgers would drown them out with boos. I hate that fucker. He ruined my first game experience and he is a piece of shit.
@PaulI'm only upset at Brox for choking on the big stage, I know he's been misused and I know he's human. Even after that debacle of an inning, his numbers are good. Bottom line, the pen is bottom-heavy (pun intended, but that's not the point)Now I'm really going to bed.
Have I mentioned that I hate interleague?
Fuck the American League. Peace I'm outta here.
I blame Torre. Using Broxton for so many days, especially yesterday when the game was pretty much toast, drove him into a wall. It's one thing when Broxton shits his pants at the sight of Matt Stairs. It's another thing when Torre rides him all the way to the Bronx and back.
Also, we need to cut Sherrill loose before he starts blowing more games. I loved him last year, but I couldn't give a shit about last year. This is now, and right now he sucks something awful. Cut the dead weight and get somebody competent up. Like T-Slick. He's earned a spot in the 'pen much more than Sherrill.I had a long day, and finding out about this loss has me plenty pissed.
Yeah Torre coached liked he didn't have confidence in the rest of his bullpen on Saturday. I wonder why....
food network does not ease the pain - the annoying woman won the cupcake wars episode. Now I'm really pissed off.
Last year we found gems like Belly and Tron. You have to a high turnover with the bullpen these days.Do you think the SD bullpen will be worth a shit next year?So new blood needs to come in and fill in the roles. you might get away with managing the bench that way but the bullpen has to contribute.
Reed Johnson was 3-for-4 today. But is he a gamer?
3-for-5, my bad. But still.
I swear if Loretta would not have retired he still would be on this team.
Other points of note:Belly2 showing some pop is encouraging.Furcal looks great.Tron threw only seven pitches in the tenth? What happened?I cannot believe Broxton was in the inning for as long as he was. He damn near threw 50 pitches. You'd think that once he got around 35, Torre'd say to himself, "This isn't exactly working out."We scored a run off Joba. That puts some kind of a smile on my face.Derek Jeter did not hit in the clutch. And yet the universe has not collapsed on itself.No walks for Kershaw. Very encouraging.
Hey and Bills is back and Ely pitched well. We could be about to make a little noise. But like every run this year we must DFA someone from the bullpen.
Bills is back, and hopefully a little R&R can recharge his batteries.
Wow and I thought April was a tough month. I hope July is as good as May to April.
Thank god we are done with interleague.
if there was ever a time to slack on posting a PGT, this was the onesomebody mentioned it in the game thread, but it would have been nice to have Kuo available more than 1 day in a row. I wish he wasnt so fragile. Still I would rather have him every 3rd day than not at all
Over 100 comments in a PGT after an almost-700 comment GT. You know it's either a big win or a big loss when that happens.
I have a hangover and I didn't even drink.Stupid Dodgers.
"Stupid Dodgers" was my cry all growing up, so much so that when my mom asks how they've been doing and I complain about the hitting or pitching or whatever, she will respond "Stupid Dodgers."
I used to say that I hated them a lot too
Watching that game last night on tv was painful. And reading this thread this morning has brought back all the pain. The bullpen better pull their heads out of their asses for this Gnats series.
