Game 86 Thread: July 4 vs. Mets, 6p

Jose Reyes may or may not play tonight due to a strained hammy. But he traveled with the team, so you can expect at least one energetic dugout shot.

Rubby De La Rosa (3-3, 4.41) vs. Chris Capuano (7-7, 4.27).

Ah, Mets Mets Mets. You started the season as a fellow doomed franchise, and now you hover at the .500 mark. Led back to respectability by the rejuvenated Jose Reyes — whom we've been suspicious of from the start, and who's single-handedly deflected the spotlight from the Wilpons to himself. Nicely played, Jose. Get in line behind Carl Crawford.

Today's the Fourth of July, so both teams will be wearing weird hats. And the Dodgers have planned a fireworks show for after the game, so all twenty of you who show up are in for a real treat.

And an roster update, from @kengurnick:

Dee Gordon was returned to Triple-A and Eugenio Velez was promoted to the Dodgers.

Shameful lack of content and commenting. Come on, folks

Fired up after an extra innings walk off Nats victory over Schlubs. Werth steals second, steals, third, then scores on WP. Just like he used to do against us.

Josh S. said...

Velez? Shit yeah! WE'RE SAVED!

Neeebs said...

DB: And shameful lack of editing on my part.

Orel said...

What was the Nats/Cubs fans percentage split at the yard, Dusty?

Paul said...

I have run out of ways to say we suck.

Paul said...

My postive comment Is Eugenio is a much cooler name than it's English brother.

Neeebs said...

@Paul: I feel the same way about Bartelome.

World B. Dusty said...

Actually there were a jack load of Nats fans at the Yard. While Cubs always pack it in, I actually thought there would be more. Electric atmosphere, all told. It was weird to see so many - wait for it - seats filled.

Can't make it to the game tonight, but will be there tomorrow. Working on some special fireworks for Mrs. Sax this evening, if you catch my drift.

Go Dodgers!

@ Saxy

Best upgrade your Piccolo Pete.

Spank said...

Not really liking Dee being sent down. What he lacked in batting average he brought with energy and mayhem on the base paths when he made it there.

Wotcher, everybody!

I just heard Vin say UJTD!

"Juan Uribe, who has to be full of beans..."

Truer words were never spoken.

$100 bucks Ruby had no idea what the fuck Mattingly and Ellis was telling him.

Josh S. said...

Well, that inning sucked, but it's damn nice to see the place so full.

World B. Dusty said...

Joint looks packed tonight.

Steve Sax said...
