    Go BLUE!!!!

  • foul tip

    Go is what the Yankees have said to old friend Luis Cruz, as in leave, DFA. Anyone surprised?

  • TAFKA_Gagne55

    So are we supposed to have a rooting interest in Arz-Pit? I’ve been seeing more #1 seed posts than NL west standings posts here lately

    • WBBsAs

      We have no control over what the Dodgers do, nor what the Bucs and Dbags do. The Dodgers themselves have some control over what they do, but nothing more than that.

    • Bob_in_Vegas

      First things first, for me — win the division!

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

      My take on this is, since we don’t face Pitt anymore, I want them to lose enough games to fall behind us. Now if AZ winning puts us in jeopardy of losing 1st place in the west then I root for Pitt but as long as we are winning I’m rooting against the bucs

      • Bob_in_Vegas

        Fair enough. But after the Dodgers, I’m happiest for the Pirates. For sooooo long, THEIR waffle was .500 and now . . .

    Ken Gurnick ‏@kengurnick50s
    Brian Wilson hasn’t been activated, but he walked down to the bullpen between innings with the rest of the Dodgers relievers.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Did they make him carry the case of Red Bull?

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

        No I think it was more of a “I’m going to take one of your jobs” statement

          It’s quite common for a starting pitcher to conserve energy on a likely out.

    • Bob_in_Vegas

      Thanks — I wondered what your earlier comment regarding his look referred to.

  • peter drysdale

    Has anyone noticed the Dodgers now have the second best road record in MLB now? It’s crazy considering how bad they were on the road early in the season.

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

      yes and depending on how the Nats and Atl game turns out we might be 2.5 back

  • ASW1

    Not to take anything away from the Dodgers and didn’t see much of the game, but what I did catch, and hear on the radio, Phillies played just terrible – heads not in the game, standing around, completely lackadaisical – no wonder Phillies phans pissed off. Not the same Phillies we are accustomed to seeing in the recent past, for sure.

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

      after we went ahead 2-0

    • Bob_Hendley

      Just lost their manager as well.

  • ASW1

    Hearing that Ethier was limping is a downer – hope Kemp’s ankle heals up soon.
    Not sure about using Kenley with a 4-run lead and the bottom of the order for the Phils coming up and yes I’m nitpicking.
    Love the streak, love the fact that wins are now starting to seem automatic, but it makes me nervous for some reason.

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

      I agree should have used Withrow since they are going to be sending him down

      • ASW1

        And that’s another thing – I don’t think Withrow should be going anywhere, but then again, they can just call him back up when rosters expand, so no biggie.

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

          right so use him before he goes

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

    For a 96 win season we would need to go 25-16 that would mean AZ would need to go 35-8 to tie

    With only Boston and Cincinnati the only two teams over .500 left on our schedule and only Phillies, Marlins, cubs and the NL West left I think 25 more wins is well within reach
