  1. Sad. Only scored one run on a pitcher coming into the game with an ERA over 10.00.

  2. Take away the recent 16-run and 14-run outbursts and this is a team that can generally not hit enough to win. The season is between one-fifth and one-fourth over.

    • Given those scoring outbursts plus the first couple weeks of the season, we at least know that they are capable. So there is light in the tunnel. Hopefully, in front of us as well as behind us.

  3. Starting to look forward to the days off, just to get a little relief.

    • It is painful to watch this team squander opportunities repeatedly with the exception of those two games in which we scored plenty, and even then we came close to losing last night.

    • It’s all the same as before but the fact that it just keeps going on is what makes it so bad.

  4. Dodgers still struggling. This part of the season has been a few moments of feasting but still mostly famine.

  5. I’m about to hit the road to drive to Ojai. Hoping for the win. Will save my you-know-woot until then, hopefully!

  6. Today is the first rubber match game of the year for the Dodgers!

    • Just got done doing dishes. Might be in and out this afternoon.
      But Happy Mother’s Day RBI!

          • If I’m honest, I could do without the day. One of those Hallmark-motivated events (like Valentine’s Day) guaranteed to cause more stress and guilt than is necessary.

          • It certainly can bring up some different emotions for many people outside of the hearts and flowers for mom it is is assumed to represent.

          • Anna Jarvis of Philadelphia, whose mother had organized women’s groups to promote friendship and health, originated Mother’s Day. On May 12, 1907, she held a memorial service at her late mother’s church in Grafton, West Virginia.

            What had originally been primarily a day of honour became associated with the sending of cards and the giving of gifts, however, and, in protest against its commercialization, Jarvis spent the last years of her life trying to abolish the holiday she had brought into being.

          • Both Anna Jarvis and her mother sound like amazing powerful women!
