Dodgers at Cubs
Closer to 4th place than 1st place. Need to snap out of this funk soon.
Watch the Dodgers score like 6 runs to make this close…
They wouldn’t do that to us, would they?
Get that one out of the fountain!
So this game is a crier, as opposed to a laugher. At least there is no tension.
There is aggravation.
I’ll be in Denver for a week starting next Thursday. I’m looking forward to the break from our collapse.
Bring your dancing shoes.
Denver. Even auto-correct is driving me crazy.
I enjoy Denver. I have a cousin, my mother’s twin sister’s son, living there.
In fact, do we have a team shrink on the team?
McCourt used to pay someone to think positive thoughts towards the team.
I’m talking deep therapy.
I am getting very sleepy—watching the Dodgers
For some reason I’m Spellbound.
That could cancel out my thoughts
This might be the funniest comment of the night.
I continue to loathe Fletcher. He’s a gnat (small g).
Maybe you should stop loathing opposing players. Each one you loath seems to bring some extra hurt to the Dodgers lately.
Whatever works. Shall we love on their players and hate on ours?
Haha. That’s seems strangely close to cheering for a different team. It’s like being a spy I guess.
Ah well. Good thing there is still 80% of the season left!! 80!
Finally happened, a game where nothing went right.
Including all the breaks they were gifted…
Ha! The only redeeming aspect was the notion that the other team could look bad, if only briefly.
I have had so little sleep this week and I’m hanging onto to see the end of this game like it matters.
I might need to re-examine my life…
Like a train wreck. You just gotta watch.
There is a horrible yet compelling nature to all this losing.
Moookie! I love empty calories!
“The longer this slump goes, the closer it is to being over.”
Either me or Yogi Bera.
I wonder if a week from now this losing slump will be over and done?
It seems strange to think at some point it will actually be over.
Probably be over.
Post of the night.
The 4 hours of sleep last night are making it hard to keep my eyes open.
Well, either lack of sleep or the Dodgers tepid play.
That Uceta bloop out was fun!
It sure was.
Boy oh boy do I miss Belli.
Belli of the Ball
A double! A double! A double!
Seemed to come out of nowhere. I was startled.
Double, double. Toil and trouble.
Quick one for Uceta!
Fun to see Ruiz behind the plate!
I will say this one is less tense…
I couldn’t stay away from you all. Just watched the fourth episode of “Atlantic Crossing.” Excellent drama. I see that this game is going the way of so many others, but at least this defeat won’t be wrapped in agony. I expect that Roberts will say afterwards, “We have to play better,” and that one or more of the Dodgers will say the same thing or “This is not us.”
The Dodgers are playing very poorly, but barely trail two teams that are playing way over their heads.
The Giants are playing over their heads; the Padres aren’t.
Maybe, maybe not, but they’re barely ahead of a Dodger team that’s struggling more than any year in recent memory.
What’s so weird is how almost universally weak we look top to bottom. Except AJ. Who is now hurt.
Okay fellas. Big inning!
The Angles are capable of it but, after this inning, I’m gonna take the dog around the block.
Might need 2 big innings and a few small ones for good measure.
Kelly almost hit Trout and if he had, Betts would be nursing a bruise.
Trout looked like Eric Dickerson running out his triple.
Lux to outfield?
And now Pollock injures himself.
Looks like injury to insult for AJ
We get to watch Trout.
I am impressed with Ohtani
Has that Icharo like swing but with power.
Might as well get Kelly some work in a game we were going to lose anyway.
I’m glad the Dodgers are not playing a team with both Fletcher and Duffy on it.
Seager caught one!
You are a future person for me tonight. I’m watching game through Extra Innings.
Baseball always looks so easy when the Dodgers play.
Last year the Dodgers made it look easy, right now which ever team the Dodgers are playing does.
Let’s see the fastball
Nice to see pouty mouth back out there
One up, one on
Forever my hero for giving it to the Asteriks.
But he took it to the Dodgers twice
One of us now.
The Angles have the dunkers down.
Gift number 2 or 3 this inning.
But of course it turned out to be no problem at all for the Angels.
Bring on the pen.
We absolutely cannot hit with RISP anymore. It’s truly baffling.
AJ can’t hit with RISP. What a shocker.
Not that time. Coming into the game he had OPS 1.073 with RISP! (30 PA)
But today’s another day.
Sounded good. Hooked foul.
Adrian Johnson is the home plate umpire. He’s inept.
Please capitalize on these gifts Dodgers.
Don’t look in the mouth!
It’s not a gift horse until the Dodgers bring it home!
This ump is at least uniformly unfair.
Ok. Make them pay Dodgers.
You are asking a lot, my friend.
I’m just glad you said we are friends. 😉
Smith with the booming double. Lol
Full credit for hustle.
After the slow start.
Being thrown out at second would have been too much.
Between MLB.tv crashing and the Dodgers crashing tonight’s game is almost unwatchable.
My Roku TV is working fine, but the iPad app crashes frequently.
How many no-no’s are going to happen tonight?
Who is our hitting coach, by the way?
Why can’t we do that?
Maybe the Dodgers should sign Pujols. (Sarcasim)
Groovy playing Dodgers.
Up to JT.
Seager does it again!
Even when they get a hit, it can’t score a run.
An extra base hit with a runner on no less.
Mookie asking for the ball after that double.
No patience. No placement.
We’ve gotten our 1 run and 2 hits. I’m taking the rest of the night off to watch “Atlantic Crossing” with my wife on PBS Masterpiece. Catch up with you all tomorrow.
Peace to you Scoop
The Norwegian in me commends you, but I’m sticking with the Dodgers.
They threw a runner out!!
Nice catch Betts.
Things aren’t going well for the Dodgers tonight. How unusual.
Maybe more like – last year.
All is not well in the Mutthouse. https://twitter.com/anthonyditrollo/status/1390855811027685378?s=20
Ok. Here comes the part of the lineup I trust more right now.
That had a high probability of being a strike. But Turner strikes out anyways.
Now let’s see if Seager can avoid getting picked off again.
I mean he should at least try not to.
That would be progress.
Mookie is like what – 0 for 10 now? 0-12?
The good news is that the Angel pitching can give up runs in bunches as well.
It’s time for them to get started.
Well, the Rays scored 7 in the 8th against the Angels, so sometimes it comes later.
Fletcher is my most despised Angle.
Makes sense. Butera is a superstar.
Sheesh. Stop it Dodgers!
When you give hits to Ward and Butera…
I think that the Dodgers want to get to 17-17 and then start the season over.
Of course, a .143 hitter…
Ooph. Can’t blame the ump
for that one.
Except that the inning shoulda been over.
I am really shocked at the home plate umpires this year so far.
It has been outrageous, and I’m someone inclined to give umpires benefit of the doubt.
I am as well. But so many calls have been egregious I feel I have to keep commenting.
They are making it really easy for MLB to adopt the electronic strike zone.
Two strike in the edges called balls. And then, guess what? Hammered and out.
Recalling when Upton and Kemp were the up and coming outfielders in the West.
I never expected that Upton would outlast Kemp.
I’m fine with Beaty’s situational hitting there.
Maybe that will be enough for Urias?
Nah – better get some more.
Enough for Urias, but, not for the bullpen.
Urias likes when they score 16.
I’ll settle for six. You should win most games when you score six runs.
Nice hit, AJ!
A few years ago Trout catches that.
Clearly now in his declining years…
It’s so obvious isn’t it? Lol. He is so amazing.
Just think – Arte Moreno coulda put Pujols out there, with the same result.
I still can’t believe Arte DFA’d Pujols. It was the right thing to do – but I still can’t believe he did it.
Words I never expected to say: Save us, AJ!
I want me some Apple Jacks!
Geez, c’mon Corey. Playing yourself out of that mega contract.
Seager the sleeper.
Is MLBTV still crashing your iPad? I lodged a complaint but they haven’t responded to me yet.
No problems tonight. Saw that Eric Stephen had complaints as well.
Spoke too soon. Just crashed twice this inning.
Oh, Corey. Really? What insult is left?
Argh. Just posted on next game. I was complaining about Muncy’s awful at bat.
Is Angle Stadium the tackiest in baseball?
Let’s get the win tonight Dodgers!
Got my rally monkey out!
No Duke, but there is a lineup. https://twitter.com/SportsNetLA/status/1390792862283886592?s=20
On this date, remembering Campy. https://twitter.com/DodgersArchive/status/1390708381678141441?s=20
My father, who was born in Brooklyn in 1916 and was a lifelong fan of the Dodgers, took me to that game, pulling me out of school because he knew its significance.
It was the largest crowd for an MLB game to that point, 93,103. That mark was broken in 2008, the 50th anniversary of the Dodgers’ arrival, when the Dodgers and Red Sox played an exhibition game at the Coliseum that drew 115,300. How committed were the Dodgers to playing the benefit game for Campanella? They had played a day game in Milwaukee the day before, a day game in San Francisco the afternoon of the Campy game, flew south for the night game fund-raiser and returned to San Francisco for a night game the next day. Hat’s off to Walter O’Malley for that.
Hats off to the players!
Willie – the last genuine Giant – turned 90 yesterday. https://twitter.com/ChristinaKahrl/status/1390702671510732802?s=20
