    Not a great loss since Jerry is playing out of position at 3d as witnessed by 2 front ende of DPs being blown this weekend. The way Cruz drives in runs he should be starting. I suppose Kennedy should get an occassional but hope Donnie boy doesn’t pencil him in there.

  2. Bobby says:

    Worst group of 3b I’ve ever seen on the dodgers, and I’ve been a fan since Guerrero looked like a bland man playing 3b (at least he hit)

    Since then, I thought Jeff Hamilton, German Rivera, Mike Blowers, etc were all horrible. These guys make Rivera look like Scott Rolen.

  3. Kevin says:

    It’s a big loss Michael. There aren’t many utility men (if any) better than Jerry.

    • Michael says:

      No disrespect to Jerry but he isn’t going to play SS and it’s highly unlikely he’ll see time in the OF with the current makeup of the roster. That leaves the possibilties down to 2nd or 3rd and he is hitting .129 in his last 10 games, nine of them starts. That being said, I’d druther him on the bench than Juan.

    BA against RHP

    Victorino .241
    M. Ellis .207
    Kemp .313
    Ethier .325
    Rameriz .254
    Loney .256
    Kennedy .256
    AJ Ellis .294

    Mattingly better hope the 5-2 lead holds up… Why does he allow Kennedy to hit vs a lefty there?? Let Cruz hit for Kennedy and force Hurdle to burn another RH reliever.. Cruz is an upgrade defensively as well at 3B….

  6. Roger Dodger says:

    This relief pitching needs to hitch up their pants and do their work.

    In the end, relief pitching and win AND can loose games and make or break a season.

    Let us see what happens in the 9th for Dodger pen folks.

  7. Roger Dodger says:

    Someone posted earlier, maybe yesterday, that Matt had been not coming through in some bases loaded situations, but getting his hits in other situations.

    Here in the 9th inning, runner on 3rd base —– he is supposed to drive it home.

    Oh, sorry for talking negative.

    Jansen, 9th inning, now we’re talking. Get’s the job done.

  8. Bobby says:

    Good point Rodger

    Great game by Harang. Great job by Jansen. Thanks for scaring the hell out of me Bellysario

  9. Ken says:

    Easy button!

    Choate. Can’t pitch but he can sure catch!

    Elian back from AAA tommorrow.

    Never know when Belly will show up anymore.

  10. Bball says:

    Can u say first place. I sure can FIRST PLACE. Ya baby keep it goin

  11. Rob says:

    Just got back from the midgets game against the nationals and it was great to see the nats put a 14 spot on the midgets. We need to take 3 out of 4 from the pirates and the nats will help us with the rest. Go Blue!!
