Part of the Game Thread from April 21, 2010

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:


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!

Loney isn’t

Well, at least Joe can get emotional about his freaking horse… Nice to know he has passion about something

Career RBI #1800 for Manram!


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.

    It has so far been a freaky first month of baseball, lets hope it settles down and a little more normality arrives in May… it just doesn’t seem right San 1 & 2 a top the NL West, there should be at least a team splitting them up…..:-)

    I sent you an email about the ‘link’ signature without an http…

    Phillies Outside

    Hey Emma!
    Thx for your words on ITD; I just told Nelly that I’m tickled Dodger Blue by Josh’s comment! I’ll say hi to my mom for you; I look forward to getting your pictures!

    unfortunately I did not watch baseball as akid. Soccer was pretty much our only sport in Honduras.
    No bueno seeing those San in 1&2 but so glad Padres took care of the hated Jints. Thanks for the email about the linkie thing!!
    At least we have a better record than the Red Sox.
    I felt asleep waiting for brother Vic to get off the computer so I did not send the pics but today! I promise! Josh was so sweeet doing that!

    I got my new graphs up about the Nationals series. Should be pretty interesting and hopefully it will change the course of the Dodgers this season on the road. The best thing I noticed about the Dodgers and Nationals is that the Dodgers score most of their runs in the 1st and 7th and the Nationals give up most of their runs in the 1st and 5th and 7th. That could work out well for the Dodgers. I’d like to see them keep the offense pounding to give the pitching more time to work out the kinks.

    Out of curiosity, have you figured out a way to cross post your MLBlog to your other Dodgers Blue Blog or do you just double post everything?

  6. crzblue2

    I just copy/paste. I usually start on this blog and copy paste to the other. Do you also have a blog there?

    i ALWAYS miss daytime baseball because of school… i remember during post season I used to rush out of school to get into my grandpa’s car. Then as I quickly turned on the radio (it would always be the 7th-9th inning) he would recap everything that happened from the beginning. I swear he’s amazing.. he remembers every play and at bat. I love watching baseball with him 🙂

    “At least we have a better record than the Red Sox.”
    I resemble that remark! 😉
    Very true, though. Our commentary is starting to look like that thread you posted!

  9. crzblue2

    LOL Greg!
    Good to read you again! We just got to tell each other “is early, is early” But the boys better get it together! June I will be in Boston!!

    Emma – No I don’t, but I dislike the MLBlog interface, so I was curious if you somehow found a way to bypass it. Copy/paste works, though!
