Scoreboard Watching: August 4

Man, these Dodgers off-days are a real bummer, especially without an off-day puzzle to keep us occupied. May as well keep an eye out for PHI @ SF (7.15p first pitch), which features Cliff Lee vs. Ashley Bumgarner. The Giants have a one-game divisional lead over idle Arizona, but have lost six of their last 10. The Phillies are riding a six-game winning streak and have opened up a crazy eight-game lead over Atlanta, who leads the wild card race by 2.5 games. As much as it pains me to say it, let's go, Phillies!

No you didn't!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Oh my God, why don't you start a badge blog and report your news on that blog.

Phillies 3, Giants 0

Arizona sneaks to a half-game back

SF now 3-7 over its last 10

Josh must be torn right now.

Ahem. We also gained a half game on the Giants. If the giants can lose and at the same time the Dodgers can have twenty more off days the Dodgers can win this thing!

Steve Sax said...

@Paul: The Dodgers actually have had plenty of off-days all year long, whether they're on or off the field
