I can’t watch or listen to early games since I am at work and by the time I get home is over but I love reading the game threads from the BIg Blue Wrecking Crew forum (I have a linkie to the right) Here is part of the game thread:
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, CAN’T ANYBODY PITCH ON THIS DAMNED TEAM?!?
Runs come fast and furious in Cincinnati … let’s give Kuroda a chance to settle down before we declare the season over.
can anyone pitch or play d?!?!? WTF
Argue Joe! Do something! Does the man have any passion at all?! We just got screwed. That’s a judgement call, they can’t just arbitrarily assume where to place the runners.
Nice recovery by Kuroda. Still steamed that Torre can’t go out and argue with the umpires. Lasagna would have burst a carotid artery over that call.
It doesn’t matter much anyway. The way things are going, we’ll need about 12 runs to win this thing.
im thinkin more like 15
manny!!!!! 5-4 good guys
Manny is absolute nails!
Well, at least Joe can get emotional about his freaking horse… Nice to know he has passion about something
Career RBI #1800 for Manram!
ANDRE WITH THE CANNON FOR AN ARM!!!
AWOL is warming up.(Bellisario_who’s VISA problem because of a DUI last year caused him to miss Spring Training)
raffy with an rbi triple….. holy crap hes on fire
KEMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 2 RUN HOMER!!!!!!!!!!
Joe says that’s one of the few things he still gets emotional about. Dammit, I’m pretty emotional about how placidly he manages my team. He acts like he doesn’t give a ****, and manages like the outcome is of no consequence. Meanwhile he’s misting up watching his nag run around in circles.
I’m confused. Is Torre speaking of his pony or his wife? SamAdams, you said he was watching his nag run…! Most guys would be happy to get their nagging wife to run…! Be glad to be so fortunate, Joe…!
Apparently tonight, the discussion has gone from Torre’s pony to beating a dead horse.
AWOL on the mound.
KEMP = MVP…! The only thing that may prevent it is Andre…! Nice problem to have…
I hope you are right and think there’s a reasonable chance but it is hard to forget about Puljos.
I really can’t believe this is the Dodgers. Over the years they’ve usually been a terrific pitching, weak hitting team. I feel like the world is upside down. Kemp is an absolute ANIMAL.
AWOL is still inducing the grounders. The Bowler is back!
Say goodbye to first place Gnats. The Madres just swept ’em.
23 runs in 2 days but only one win. Oh well, we’ll take it.
According to the Dodgers site, Weaver tweaked his back. Torre denied Stoner’s “workload” had any bearing on the injury.
Yeah, I believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Great Pumpkin. Let’s face it, Torre has zero clue on how to handle a bullpen, do a double switch or spell cat. I hope Donny is taking notes and learning what not to do as a manager.
I’ll buy that Weaver’s injury may not be directly related to workload, but what I can’t get over was how stupid it was to bring him into the game. It’s a 7 run lead in the 8th inning, and Monasterios hadn’t pitched in 4 days. I get that he’s a Rule 5 guy, but he’s shown that he’s at least usable (he did get through the last 2 innings with no issue, after Weaver left). Why bring in a guy you count on like Weaver, when it’s a perfect situation to let your Rule 5 guy soak up some innings? Killed me.
Thanks Big Blue Wrecking Crew!
Thank you Dodgers!!
Final score Dodgers 14, Reds 6.
