Sheets Had a Ticket to Ride

Tonight I literally thought I was in Los Angeles in 2006 against the Padres. First Hanley to center, then Poney to right, and my boy Luis Cruz to left. I was still waiting for Nomar to come up and then I saw AJ Ellis step to the plate and snapped back into reality.

Defense

Harang was unimpressive in his first two innings throwing twice as many balls as strikes. (115-58 pitches to strikes through 6.2 innings) He fought back and tuffed it out to make a quality start. Today’s game was managed how yesterday’s should have been. Randy was brought in to face Heyward after Harang gave up a triple to Bourn and miraculously got Prado out. Randy did what he was suppose to and got the out. Guerra looked like a deer in the headlights. He needs to get it together and be our seventh inning guy. Shawn is reading the same script Guerra was. It was Mr. Strikeout himself Kenley Jansen who had to end the rally and slam the door shut for the win. I’ll act like that home run didn’t happen.

Offense

Hanley, Poney, and Luis was the offense. Only four hits all home runs.

I’ll take it.

Hanley “I see you” I better be “seeing you all the way into the playoffs and the World Series

My Little James Poney, had 2 home runs in one week and we still have Sunday for a chance at another one. If Poney hits another I will drop the nickname.

Kemp is trying to make up for lost time at the plate by swinging at EVERYTHING!!!! Kemp goes 0-3 with 2 strikeouts, a walk, and a pop out.

Nomar. Come outta retirement????

P.S. All you got to do is tick Hanley off and he’ll go beast mode. Thank you Ozzie Guillen!

    Looks like Mark is not posting today. Here are a few minor league tidbits:

    John Ely – 8 IP/6 H/1 R/7 K/2 BB – ERA is now 3.13 and he is 14-7. Someone should be paying attention. He’s probably better than Wright.

    Jerry Sands 1-3 – He is only playing 1B.

    FedEx – 2-4 with 2 RBI (69) He is hitting .296.

    Yasiel Puig – 03 with a BB and 1 K

    Joc Pederson with a double (.313)

    Big News – RDLR with 4 IP – he allowed 2 hits, 0 Runs, K’ed 2 and walked 1.

    Matt Guerrier pitched a perfect inning and k’ed 2

    Strange game yesterday. 4 hits all dingers. That won’t happen again. Prolly.

    Not sure why, but the Dodger brass has no faith in a few of the AAA guys. Either that, or they just don’t want to upset the chemistry of what they got going on now….. it’s working so well. They are sticking with the veterans Kennedy and Uribe until the call ups. I think Ely will get a shot as will FedX.

    Why does it take going back east to motivate Hanley? He had better get just as pissed at Arizona and San Francisco.

    Every time I see the name Yasiel it’s followed in my head by “Bathbone”. Tells you how old I am. I had a friend I played high school ball with that used to call that old actor (Basil Rathbone) Rasil Bathbone. I’ll bet only Roger knows who I am talking about. Rasil was Sir Guy in the 1938 version of The Adventures of Robin Hood, filmed in Chico by the way…. where I went to college. Chico State…. The Wildcats. I am rambling. It happens to old guys.
