Good Teammates

Bottom of the sixth: Jerry Sands already has a double and an RBI off Tim Hudson — both to the opposite field — so Hudson sails a pitch at his head.


Sands barely gets out of the way.


A visibly displeased Matt Kemp barks at Hudson.


Top of the seventh: Ted Lilly throws behind Nate McLouth.


"Who, me?"

From "Jerry Sands' debut gives Dodgers a lift" by Tony Jackson at ESPNLosAngeles.com:

While that could have been interpreted as a message -- Lilly (1-2) responded by throwing one behind the Braves' Nate McLouth in the seventh, resulting in a warning being issued to both teams -- Sands was able to shrug it off, especially after Hudson sent an autographed ball to him that included an actual, written message.

"He sent a ball over, which I appreciated, that said, 'It got away from me,' " Sands said. "It's happened before. There is no reason why he would be throwing at my head right there. We had a good at-bat and a good battle after that, and I didn't [read anything] into it at all."

New Game, what was Matt Saying to Hudson?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

KILL HIM WITH YOUR HEAT VISION, MATT

Paul said...

Take notes Chadley.

@CVF: I read it as, "Hey, don't you do that shit here, boy." It was at least some variation on that.

Dusty Baker said...

You doubt Mrs Dusty's read, Josh? I'm telling her!

So, a kid tears shit up in spring training; kills AAA pitching (the asterisk is added because he plays in Albecracky); is a solid guy in LF; seems well grounded, and (most importantly); was never a member of the San Francisco Gnats?

What is Ned thinking bringing this kid up? Don't the Gnats want to trade for Aaron Rowland?

Glad to see that a team who hasn't scored more than 3 runs in this homestand until last night has the "vision" to FINALLY bring Jerry Sands up to the majors.

If I was Marcus Thames and Jay Gibbons, I'd start getting my agent busy looking for a new team, because:

JERRY SANDS IS THE FUTURE OF LEFT FIELD!!

Or:

JERRY SANDS IS THE FUTURE OF FIRST BASE!

Dusty Baker said...

What Would Shane Victorino Do?

rbnlaw said...

oooh, good point, DB.

rbnlaw said...

On the 1b comment, not Victorino.

Central Valley Fan said...

I just thought it was funny vin had them go back to that and they slowed it down so you could almost read what matt was saying

Paul said...

@Enrique_Rojas1: #Dodgers informados de que Ronald Belisario no recibir√° visa de USA

*cries Spanish tears*

Paul said...

Not sure Belly has anything left mentally or physically.

Mr. Customer said...

I seem to remember he was pretty decent in winter ball. So it goes, I guess...

Paul said...

North Pole league?

Dusty Baker said...

Wait, isn't that good that Belli can't make it back? He was terrible last year. I'd rather have Hawksw.....


(cries)

Josh S. said...

Belisariyou had to go.

Dusty Baker said...

SoSG IT Department:

End this madness now!!!

#MobileSafari

Mr. Customer said...

Belli wasn't half as bad as Tron last year, though (when he was playing)

Mr. Customer said...

...and yes, I realize that isn't really a ringing endorsement.

Pistol Pete Reiser said...

I want to see Sherrill cough one up.

Furball incoming!!!!

rbnlaw said...

Last time I checked, Flat Breezy's ERA was north of 10.

No Belli; no peace! (from opposing hitters. . .they loved that guy)

Maybe we can get the Gnats to give us Mota back. Or for Timmah to give us our mota back.

Neeebs said...

Hey Beli! I know a guy, who knows a guy, who knows a guy who can bring you over here for a fee.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

At least we have MattyG.

(cries)

karina said...

@Mr C Belisario is more than decent, he dominates the league. I suspect he has a big substance problem.

Mr. Customer said...

@karina

I suspected as much. Sad to see talent go to waste.

karina said...

I know what happened with Belisario. US Embassy found out he missed several appointments with his designated therapist and knowing his substance abuse record, the embassy decided to suspend his visa.

Sons, if you want me to translate, DM or drop a line.

Dusty Baker said...

Translation: we don't want this drunken lout back in the country.

Believe me, I've hard that before.
