    GO BLUE!!!!

  • Anonymous

    Let’s go for number 12! Seems like a lot of contending teams are either winning dramatically (see Boston, Cleveland), on long winning streaks (Cleveland), winning consistently (Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh) or all three (Los Angeles).
    I say this because a lot of fans of teams could be using the destiny word a fair bit right now.

    What made it worse for me is the delayed information. Vegas carries the broadcasts, but not all of them. Instead of the Dodgers, they have “shopping radio” right now.

            It is really frustrating that not one radio station in this entire state will pony up the fees and sell the ads for the Dodgers games. We get Giants games on some Sundays, but baseball on the radio is usually whatever ESPN Radio feels like putting on.

        I was thinking the same thing, about the coupons. Yes, I remember the KDWN days as well . . . falling to sleep with the game over the radio under my pillow! (Plus 1400′s weak signal.) . . . But, it HAS been worse . . . the year + without any radio coverage in LV . . . my phone’s not smart enough to pick up the broadcast, so being able to listen to it at all in the car is great . . . especially the way this year has turned out . . . or any Vinny-broadcast inning of any year!

      there’s also 3 under partial schedule that are long term Dodger radio stations; one in Illinois, one in Indiana and one in the Virgin Islands.
      Years ago I used to listen to two of these stations on the computer, the one in Bishop, CA and the V.I. one. I doubt that is possible today as they likely do not stream the games.

    I can feel for the Cubs fans even more than usual — 14 hits and only 2 runs is almost as bad as the Dodgers’ nadir of futility that I recall: 11 hits for 1 run. Still, I’m glad it’s the Cubs fans feeling pain tonight!

    Anybody know the latest on the Cuban shortstop Guerrero

    • Anonymous

      By Steve Adams [August 3 at 10:35pm CST]

      August 3: The Twins are among the clubs interested in Guerrero, reports Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN (via Twitter). “We like him,” said Twins VP Mike Radcliff. “We’re still watching him.” Wolfson names the Dodgers as the continuing favorites to land Guerrero.

      Guerrero reportedly possesses good power but profiles more as a second baseman at the big league level, according to Baseball America (subscription required).
