    “The move came after Arruebarrena had a huge night with the Quakes, going 2 for 5 with two home runs, three RBIs and two runs scored in the Quakes exciting 11-10 win over the High Desert Mavericks.”

    Low minors and all that, but is this the same guy who pretty much is helpless at bat in MLB?
    If he can hit anything up here he’d be valuable with that glove, at least as a backup.

    May have had an attitude adjustment too. “…Arruebarrena called the incident a “misunderstanding” and that he is committed to returning to the big leagues and helping the Dodgers win.”

    Story says he’s 6-1 and 230. Not exactly standard shortstop size, but he’s a wizard in the field. Yet at 6-4 and 215 Corey Seager supposedly is too big for SS and may have to move…

  2. Wow – seems like it took forever for the Dodgers to go from Game 90 to Game 91. Slackers.
    Good to be back but have definitely gotten out of the groove.

  3. Could have been much worse with Harper batting. Hope Bolsinger is alright.

  4. It’s like when the Christmas tree light go out and you try and find the one on the string that needs replacing.

    • True!
      And in the meantime – watching the Pan Am Games. Love international competitions and seeing athletes from places like Guatemala, Cayman Islands, etc.

  5. They are blaming this on Taylor Swift who had a concerts here this week. The outfield grass is also discolored from where the stage was situated.

    • I understand the R’s refused to approve the budget to pay DC’s electricity bill.

    • So if the Dodgers lose – they should shake it off.
      Or are you saying there was a blank space where the lights would be?

  6. It’s as if Mattingly knew the lights would go out again and didn’t want Bolsinger to go back out there.

  7. Game to resume at 2pm local time. But now raining a bit with thunderstorms (60% chance) for 4 pm start of other game on through 8pm. Wish I could some of this yawls way. Sunday is Star Wars day at the stadium. If they have to reschedule one or two games Monday July 27th is open (now a travel day to the West Coast for both clubs). Our next, and last, swing East is Aug 4, but with no travel day included (noon game in Pitt on Sunday, August 9, followed by night game Monday in LA against these same Nats).

  8. Rain I can understand, but this was possibly the most frustrating day attempting to watch a baseball game in my life.
