    Good to see Loney helping us out vs the D-Backs with an early RBI double

      Go BLUE!!!!

      To the amazement or perhaps amusement to all here, last year I suggested the Dodgers would be wise to sign Loney to something like 5 years, $50 Million before the trade with Boston.

      • Anonymous

        You may be right, but I think he needed a new start somewhere else and I feel he would not have done as well if he stayed here (also Gonzalez has worked out pretty welI I think)

        • Anonymous

          I agree. I liked Loney a great deal and I still do. He and Kemp both arrived in 2006 and both showed great promise. I took my daughter, then a freshman at UCLA, to Loney’s first game, which was the second game of the 2006 season. It was a drizzly night, traffic was heavy, and we got there a bit late. Loney walked and scored in the first inning and then singled in the third in a win over the Braves. Loney had a very difficult 2012, the pressure seemed to get to him, and he needed a change. I am pleased he is doing so well with Tampa Bay. I hope we meet him in the World Series.

          However, it cost the Dodgers what, $75M a year to replace Loney with Crawford, Beckett, Punto, and Gonzalez.

        I too was a Loney fan – always felt like he was on the cusp of having a season like he is this year – hitting well over .300 STILL. Figures he would finally put it together the year after leaving. But, yeah, since he’s over in the AL East with the Rays, I wish him well.

    now that the bucs have beat the cards and taken over 1st place…It’s time for the cards to return the favor…still 6.5 back but if the cards win and we win could be 5.5 at the end of the night

    Atlanta now 5-3 up against the Rockies and the Rays have increased their lead. It’s looking like a good day already!

      Make that 8-3!!

      • Anonymous

        some people here want the Braves to lose so Dodgers will eventually pass them for best record. I’m on the edge on that currently but starting to agree. Thus, 8-3 what a shame.

    Everybody in the starting lineup for the Dodgers tonight is hitting at least .260, led by Greinke (.394), Ramirez (.380) and Puig (.372).

    As much as we have disliked Brian Wilson, in my mind there has never been a Giant who was detested more by Dodger fans than Sal Maglie. As a little boy who was born in Brooklyn, I was flabbergasted (although I didn’t know then what the word meant) when we acquired Maglie from Cleveland during the 1956 season. But he went 13-5 in 1956, including a no-hitter as we won the pennant. He then pitched two complete games vs. the Yankees in the World Series, beating Whitey Ford, 6-3, in the first game, and losing, 2-0, to Don Larsen’s perfect game in Game 5. Maglie allowed only five hits. So, who knows with Wilson? Will he replicate the work of Maglie or Schmidt, or something in between?

      Greinke has to start being seriously considered for coming off the bench late when you need just a single to score a run to tie or get a lead.

        last year he hit .212, the year before .143
