Uribe makes sweet music in Dodgers’ 8-5 victory

– Eubie Blake

“Walk, two-run double, walk, groundout, two-run home run.”

       “Hallucinating” is the word you’re looking for.

     If I hadn’t seen it, I wouldn’t have believed it. I doubt we will ever see it again.

    I noticed Hammels hit a HR today, now we definitely have to go after him!

      The Phillies only used two relievers and one of them just pitched to one batter.

      The Giants bullpen is always going to pitch better than the Phillies bullpen.

        I’m not convinced. Casilla (ex-Jairo García) has been awful lately, and Brad Penny is also occupying a roster spot.

    Way to go Juan Uribe, very happy to be cheering for you.  That must have felt good…  If he starts tomorrow, I’ll be just fine with it.

      The Mets SP is LH so you can rule out Kennedy. Uribe is 0 for 8 against Niese with 2 K and a GDP but with 3 RBI on 2 GO and a SF; Hairston is 0 for 6 with a walk. I think it will be Rivera at first, Uribe at third, Hairston in left; the other 5 are obvious then Treanor and 4 LHH on the bench.

  11. Great time atc citi fieldtoday. Loney with some leather and all to rare clutchbat. Uribe was unconscious and my kids heroes ethier and kemp were very much involved too. When mets brought dickey in the place was electriic but all i could think was … “beat R.A.beat R.A” i guess number 5 heard me.
    My six year old insisted on randy Neumans I love la for the ride across the Whitestone bridge.

  12. Jerry Sands continues to be on fire over the past week

    Albuquerque Isotopes ‏@AbqTopes
    An early 2-0 Cubs lead gets obliterated in the B-1. 2-run double by Fields, RBI double by Van Slyke, 2-run blast by SANDS! 5-2 ’TopesWe’ll see him in September, at any rate. Maybe see all 3 of those guys in September for that matter. (Would love to see them make space for Fields just to have one more decent hitter on the bench.)

       I still have hopes for Sands, who hasn’t gotten a full trial at the major league level.

      Maybe the Dodgers will save their money for free agents and go from here on out with more of a set lineup that includes Sands, Uribe, and Loney with Fields added to the bench.

    Even after his Dodger career day, Uribe is still below the Mendoza line.

  14. Dodgers may shift trade focus to Justin Morneau or James Shields

    Assuming the Ds need to win 90 the division, they will need to go 39-28 the rest of the way!
    Not impossible, but for a team that has been playing under .500 ball for the better part of six weeks, it will be an uphill climb. Its go time fellas!
