    With that home run by Yasiel Puig, his 6th, he is hitting .483/.508/.845

    Gameday sez he’s 6′ 3″ and 245. Can he really be 245 lbs? He doesn’t look that hefty.

    Props to Marquis for getting out of that with no runs, drat it.

  • http://www.twitter.com/ElJefedor Jeffrey Thomas III

    If Vin and even Karros comment on how many guys Marquis walks, knowing that the guy is out of the strike zone so much, why are they chasing so many pitches? I mean Dodger coaches must know this about Marquis as well.

    Puig is going to have to learn to lay off those sliders away. Something we’ve been saying the past few years about Kemp.

    talk about Princeton made me think of nsxtacy (sp?) who used to post here. During the period when there was no daily thread I saw him posting at MSTI but I read only a very small fraction of the posts there or at TBLA and have not seen a post from him in a very long time; I hope he is OK.

    • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

      I saw something from him at TBLA less than a week ago…I don’t cruise there everyday

        TY as always; please let him know about the activity here if you get the chance; if you do that at MSTI be prepared for root beer comments.

            Hi Mike – I’m fine, thanks for the concern. With the reduced traffic here on DT, I haven’t been checking the comments, although I still read Jon’s columns now that he’s resumed writing them.

      Not running like he used to. He better be careful not to re-injure himself.

    Be nice if someone gets on so Puig can get Fife the win.

      Here we go…

      • http://www.twitter.com/ElJefedor Jeffrey Thomas III

        At least he didn’t strike out this time.

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

    why did that Dodger fan congratulate him instead of trying to get the ball?

      Seriously, take your souvenir!

    How absolutely perfect is that?

    Here, I get home late last night and missed MV-Puig’s home run.
    Then, like a true “Jonny on the spot” …. Weisman has the highlight on DT for me to see this morning.
    Thanks Jon.

        Hi KT…
        I definitely caught that 1st inning ‘missile’ off Puig’s bat tonight… sweet! :-)

    Why pull Fife for Hererra to pinch hit? Don’t get Mattingly sometimes. Meanwhile, Agon!

    Three pitchers and two runs in one inning. Anybody know how many pitches Fife had?

        Thanks.

        • http://www.twitter.com/ElJefedor Jeffrey Thomas III

          I think Mattingly doesn’t like to let his pitchers go more than 6 innings. Bringing in the bull pen early makes it fun for us fans.

  • Jack Dawkins

    Tim K at ESPN had an article today about all the strikeouts in the majors this year. Part was a discussion abiout how there are so many great relivers now. No mention of our relievers in the article though.

    Just an observation.

    AJ Ellis sure looks lighter on his feet since he came back from injury.
    You know, he could be just one of those guys who isn’t physically built to play each and every day.
    If you recall, he was having a heck of time back behind the dish just before taking a break.
    ….
    If I’m Donny, I’m playing Fed-Ex 2-3 days / week….
    To me, it’s a ‘win – win’ as FedEx develops…. and AJ stays fresher.
    IMHO.

    Ok…at least it took a great catch

    Dodgers botch routine plays, Padres make spectacular ones. Seems to be the difference.

        And, don’t forget to mention all that “added enthusiasm” given by the announcers.

        Isn’t Dick Enberg one of them?

        Hang in there, buddy! :-)

    I feel almost ‘dirty’ admitting this, but I kinda liked that song they played over the PA when that guy hit the home run. Catchy. :-)

    With this bullpen — and its recent track record with him alone — can you picture Clayton if Donnie wants to take him out tomorrow?

    • Anonymous

      Heck, if they can somehow get the lead, Kid-K’s warming up!


      He’s now being promoted to the positions of…
      1. All 5 starters
      2. short relief
      3. long relief
      4. closer

        Works for me!
        Of course, that’s the Dodger prescription to ruin an arm.

  • Anonymous

    Seems like we have a profile of this 2013 team:

    fairly decent-to-good-to-great starting pitching
    anemic-to-absent offense with just enough flashes of expectations met to tease us (another “non-quality” offensive game)
    poor and porous defense
    a bullpen with imploding powers worthy of any former Vegas hotel

    Have loved Vin for too many years to count.
    But, he says Puig K’ed 3 times then gives the details on 2 after which I expect him to correct himself on the 3# which was not correct; then Puig K’s for the 3rd time and Vin says now he has struck out for the 4th time

    Well the AZL Dodgers tied their first game of the season in the bottom of the 9th after being behind 8-5 then won 9-8 in the bottom of the 10th. no consolation of course

    This tweet is instructive:
    It’s the 17th loss for bullpen, most in MLB.
