This Is Like Deja Vu All Over Again

Wake up, it’s 2007 again!  That’s what it feels like as we continually find new ways to lose!  Sure Saito is going to blow a game now and again, but last night was not the time for it.  We just looked pathetic.

Martin started to break out of his funk and Jones hit a bomb for a triple.  We know Martin is going to be fine – we just aren’t sure about Jones.  Is it a temporary thing or is he on the downhill slide?  Who knows. but as much as everyone says weight isn’t an issue, I think it is! He was heavy last year and heavier this year.  Even Ray Charles could see that!

Kuroda pitched well, as did Proctor, Beimel and Broxton.  Saito just blew chunks.  It happens.  It just didn’t need to happen last night – a game we needed if for nothing but morale.  Now, we need Kuo to give us a boost!  We just don’t seem to be a team and we seem to chock in the clutch – over and over again.  We simply cannot execute with RISP!

  • Lucas May continues to be hot in a pitchers league, and went 3-4 with his 2nd HR and a double – This guy looks like a prospect!

    Not much to say about the game, but here’s a great line from Simers’ article today (wow, I don’t write that phrase often):

    “PRESIDENT BUSH has invited Tom Lasorda to join him in Washington to meet the Pope. It’ll be interesting to see the Pope’s reaction when Lasorda tells him he might not go to heaven if he doesn’t root for the Dodgers.”

    Half our starting lineup is at .256 or lower. And, the guy at .256 is the rook.

    That ain’t a very good start now is it.

    Martin will come around. Jones? Not so sure. He will connect now and then, more then than now, and, since we have no real bombers on this club, we need guys that can hit consistently. Better to have 8 guys hitting .280 than 2 guys hitting .380 followed by a group of .200 hitters.

    I have heard some of the moneyball people say there is no such thing as clutch hitting. Well, I call hitting WRISP clutch. When you don’t do it you are a sub .500 team. Hello Dogs.

    Saito hasn’t been right since his he scroinged his gluteal. Maybe he can work it out. Maybe he needs a massage therapist to work it out for him. Mover?

    And who would have ever thunk it – we are behind the pathetic Gints in the standings. Yoiks.

    Tommy will set the Pope straight. He’d better become a Dodger fan or he’ll burn in hell, or at least purgatory!

    The Pope should clear the astral region’s parole board.

    Not so sure about some of the men who work for him though.
