Welcome to Los Angeles, Onelki

The Dodgers selected the contract of Onelki Garcia from Albuquerque and placed Shawn Tolleson on the 60-day DL. This means that the Dodgers bullpen will now need stadium-style seating for all the players to see. Interestingly, the one place in Dodger Stadium without stadium-style seating is on the floor on the stadium.

Some players are holding out for cup holders in their seats.

The Dodgers bullpen has 12 members now. Although the status of Chris Capuano is hard to determine. It’s baffling to figure out just what it is and I’ve termed this problem “Schroedinger’s Cappy.”

If the Dodgers win tonight, the only teams in the NL with winning records will be the five teams in playoff positions and Washington.

Diamondbacks at Dodgers, 7:10 p.m.

  • Jack Dawkins

    The last sentence of course begs the question, whats the fewest number, or the smallest percentage, of teams with a winning record in either league at the end of the season?

    • Bob_Hendley

      Incredible stat, that.

    The link to tonight’s game above says Dodgers at Giants…

    • John_from_Aus

      Since they were eliminated, we decided to skip the Arizona game and inflict more misery on the near neighbours

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

        near neighbors would be SD who also got eliminated today

        • John_from_Aus

          ok, northerly neighbours :)

  • scooplew

    Dodgers are 55-17 from June 22 through yesterday. Here’s how that breaks down by division:
    NL West 21-5 (D’Backs 5-0, Padres 5-0, Giants 5-1, Rockies 6-4).
    NL East 14-3 (Mets 3-0, Nationals 3-0, Marlins 3-1, Phillies 5-2, Braves 0-0).
    NL Central 12-6 (Cubs 6-1, Cardinals 3-1, Reds 3-4, Brewers 0-0, Pirates 0-0).
    AL East 8-3 (Blue Jays 3-0, Rays 3-0, Yankees 1-1, Red Sox 1-2, Orioles 0-0),

    we might be the first to clinch a playoff spot…Thought the Barves were going to do that easily

    • btimmer

      Dodgers and Braves I think are both likely to clinch on Sunday. I think the Dodgers need to win tonight to make that more likely. In theory, the Dodgers could clinch on Saturday but that would require the DBacks to lose two to Colorado.

  • btimmer

    The AL had just five winning teams in 1994 because of the strike

  • ASW1

    Ryu looks rusty.

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

    Let’s get those back

  • btimmer

    Could be Onelki time tonight.

    Why not Hanley?

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

    AJ!!

  • http://www.linkmeister.com/wordpress/ Linkmeister

    Not Mr. Ryu’s night, evidently.

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

      He’ll settle down

    DP!!

  • 4d3fect

    Don’t think I’ve ever seen a DP where a bat fragment played a part.

    • 4d3fect

      And whenever I say something like that I can hear Vin in my head saying “just when you think you’ve seen everything”,,

      • http://www.linkmeister.com/wordpress/ Linkmeister

        What happened? I didn’t see the play.

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

          Bat shatters and the runner going to second had to jump and dodge it and he when right into punto who tagged him and threw to 1st for the DP

          • http://www.linkmeister.com/wordpress/ Linkmeister

            Thanks, both of you.

          • 4d3fect

            Link to video on the bottom margin of the Gameday display. Don’t know what you’re capable of seeing over there.

          • http://www.linkmeister.com/wordpress/ Linkmeister

            I can see them fine, but the computer is better than this phone.

          • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT
        • 4d3fect

          ah, Parra hit a broken bat grounder to Punto, Hill the runner at 1st had to dodge the barrel before Punto tagged him and threw out Parra.

          Late, sorry

  • Bob_Hendley

    Corbin a lot of pitches, so there is that.

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

      still got 9 outs but we need to hold them

      • RBI

        League not helping with this.

        • WBBsAs

          Never does.

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

    Come on BW get the DP

  • scooplew

    I could pitch as poorly as League at 1 percent of what he is being paid.

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

    PUIG!!!!

  • RBI

    Wonderful Puig dinger!

  • RBI

    Time to hit their bull pen.

  • Andrew Shimmin

    I rather like this Puig fellow. His jib’s cut pleases me.

    • scooplew

      I think that Puig should be the rookie of the year, but there will be significant competition this year.

      • Andrew Shimmin

        He seems to be the VORPiest rookie. And he has the best name, though only a little better than Julio Teheran.

  • RBI

    Here comes Onelki!

  • RBI

    Onelki pitching to a small strike zone…

  • RBI

    Seriously? That’s it?

    • ASW1

      He’ll be used strictly as a Loogy I imagine.

      • RBI

        Ah, of course.

  • RBI

    Need three. Not likely.

    • John_from_Aus

      Ellis, Schu then Ellis (barring pinch hitters) doesn’t fill me with a lot of confidence

  • ASW1

    Haven’t seen much of this one but looking forward to the series against the Gints.
    Greinke vs Cain
    Kershaw vs Bumgarner
    Nolasco vs ?

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

      Vogelsong

      • ASW1

        Ah, yes – he’s been terrible this season.

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

          sorry game 3 starter is Lincecum game 4 starter is volquez vs vogelsong

          • ASW1

            OK, cool – some good matchups.

  • http://www.linkmeister.com/wordpress/ Linkmeister

    Well, rats.

  • https://www.facebook.com/kmt59 KT

    Night all

    • ASW1

      ‘night KT

  • Spence

    Looks like its going to be down to the wire between the Pirates, Dodgers and Cardinals.

  • Spence

    I think you got to seriously consider Nolasco for that 3rd starter in the playoffs. Ryu’s looked shaky since late July.

    • btimmer

      I think Nolasco has clinched the number 3 starter spot barring injury.
