Live by the long ball. Pedro gets the run back to be at "break even."

Boy the Dodgers are a bunch of hot-headed punks today for a team that is coming off wins the last 3 days in huge games against a playoff rival.

It didn't have the TPS cover sheet.

Yeah, just following along with GameCast, and completely bewildered by the response. In the 2nd freaking inning. Just complete lack of control.

And someone posted in the I-Hate-Soccer thread how he hated that soccer players writhe in the game after being fouled (maybe), I find this to be far more disreputable, plus Kemp's taken himself right out of the game when his team should be looking for the series sweep.

There was nothing wrong with the trades the Pirates made. While Ramirez is nice, certainly not in Pirates budget. Victorino having a nice series, but the Pirates do not need a rental till the end of the year. The Bucs made trades to improve their team NOW and in the FUTURE...

Every post he makes slams SOMETHING. You do not have to be happy about what has been going on, but support your team!



The Dodgers are paying, what, $30+ mil in salary to Ramirez alone over the next two years?


We will pay Barmes 5 and Wandy 8 right? When we had 3 arms in AAA right? it's all about a cumulative of decisions.

I have said multiple times in threads over the last week we could get hot again and if we can hang on until September we have a softer schedule then with 18 against the cubs, reds, and Astros. I am watching the same games you guys are and if you want to pick positives out of losses feel free. I guess I focus on why we lost. Sorry if that annoys some. Just try and call it as I see it with a focus on W's. To try and say ALL I post is negative is simply not true though.

Something tells me that getting these last 6 outs are going to be like pulling teeth.

Pedro Alvarez, Rod Barajas and Clint Barmes all with hits in the same inning. That's crazy talk.

Sure would be nice if Barmes can keep hitting and Pedro heated up down the stretch. I think we can score runs, the SP just needs to get back to normal.

Nice post. Except for GJones, everyone seems to be in a bit of a slump...hitters, pitchers, defense. Even AJ has had a few shaky starts in a row. We need to get as much corrected as we can and move on.

That was quite the awkward exchange for oh...10 minutes between Greg Brown and Bob Walk. Cringeworthy.

Odds that Barajas or Barmes would deliver? LOW
Odds that Barajas AND Barmes would deliver? LOWER
Odds that Barajas AND THEN Barmes would deliver??? ASTRONOMICALLY LOW

Wow. Nice!

Cutch made that catch look easy.

A joy to watch this cat.

That was comedy gold.

Worthy of a Benny Hill background music montage.
