    Mark must have stated the party real early today.

    Have a great time Mark. Say hello to Josh for me. As well to Tony.

    I do not like playing teams like this. Washington is projected to be last and is last at the moment. 7-17. I do not like this.

    The Dodgers better take every opportunity to score in this game. Leaving runners at 2nd and 3rd . . .

    Dunn and the guys are hungry, and want to prove something. So they will hang in there and swing from the heels.

    Zimmerman, Johnson, Guzman, Dukes all are over .300.

    Question: from the game the other night, with runners on base. Martin hits a swinging bunt that went foul at the last moment.

    Let us say this happens:

    Bases loaded, Dodgers down by 1 run. Two outs, count is 3 and 2. Same swinging bunt down third base. The runners are off with the pitch.

    Ball goes the same way that Martin’s did the other night — the other team lets the ball roll and roll and roll and roll . . .

    One runner scores. The runner at second keeps running. Then — out of no where, earthquake trimmers. The ball takes a last minute jump and stays in fair ground. That runner from second rounds third and crosses home just as the other team pickes up the ball now over by the SS position.

    Question, does the second run count? and the game over? Or, does some ump say, play the play over because of an earthqake movement?

    This could happen in Dodger Stadium, Angels, Oakland, S.F., etc.

    Interesting.

    Clayton cannot put these guy away. His command and control needs some work.

    Run counts Roger.

    Kershaw must not be sharp. I just checked the stats – 82 pitches to get through 3.2 innings. Not good. But, Nats having trouble getting runs across. That is good.

    The Nats are the best hitting club we have played so far this year.

  7. Badger says:

    23-0 at home, Major League record, Kershaw with his first win and nobody here?

    It took 99 pitches for Kershaw to get through 5, but he did it and held a good hitting team down. McDonald got one inning in, it was successful and it’s a start in the right direction, and the team continues to hit.

    We look pretty good don’t we.

    Lakers in a slugfest. I think Houston knows how the Celtics did it last year and are getting very physical. This is the play-offs where they let ‘em play so, why not give it a shot?

    I think the Lakers realize that they are going to have to out-fight the other teams in the playoffs. I really hate that the NBA alters their officiating to “playoff style” basketball. I used to play that style in my room with a Nerf Basketball hoop hung on the top of the door, we called it “tackle basketball”. A guard shouldn’t have to drive down the paint, with both hands cradling the b-ball like a running back carrying the football with both hands wrapped around the ball (and no fouls called).

    Kershaw must go 3-2 on about 80% of the batters he faces, the guy just can’t put a batter away consistently.

    Well, at least the Dodgers have shown that they can beat teams with losing records.

  9. Badger says:

    edit: to 13-0

    Yeah I agree Haze. In the play-offs, finesse style basketball gets punished. The Lakers are not as physical as Houston, nor were they as physical as Boston last year, but the fact is – they are forced to be and that is why you see the kind of play you saw last night. It’s jungle ball and it’s the kind we used to play at the Los Alamitos Naval Air Station gym back in the early 70′s. It was one neighborhooed against another without refs. Man, it was ugly. And so are these games with Houston. I wonder if we will hear anything about it from the league today.

    Anybody want a LaRoche Blake update? LaRoche pulling away in avg. and I am fairly certain he will win the OBP as well. 2 out 5 ain’t bad but will cost me 100.

    I think that Mota’s career is going up in smoke
