Post-Game 98 Thread: Suck That, All You "James Loney Does Not Have Power" Haters

DODGERS 3, METS 2 (13)

King James Loney rescues the Dodgers in the bottom of the 13th with one out, launching a solo blast to the right-field pavilion, as if those fans didn't have enough to eat. The Dodgers wasted men at the corners and none out in the bottom of the 12th, which seemed like a pretty bad omen. But scoreless frames from Kenley Jansen (1 IP), Hong-Chih Kuo (1), Jonathan Broxton (2), Jeff Weaver (2), and God forbid George Sherrill (1--and the win!) stymied the Mets and kept giving our sputtering offense chances to win. Many, many chances. And finally, Loney made the most of one.

WOOP! Free James!

I could only watch until the 6th, but went back to MLB.tv to watch the good innings. I gotta say I caught the vapors watching Kenley's inning

Watching the MLB.com highlight...great HR moment for Loney, but what the heck is Kemp trying to do to him during the walkoff celebration?

Yeah, that was strange, Sax. I chimed in with some keen insight on this toward the end of the GT.

Can someone who has read today's Plaschke piece on the McCourts summarize it for me? I don't want to click on the web link and thereby support that fuckstick.

Nice little piece on Ausmus by Tony Jackson:

DB,
It pains me to say this, but Plaschke actually made sense today. He pleads with the McCourts to come together and sell the team now before the judge either awards it to one or the other, or he divides up, ala Solomon.

Weird, I know.
