Dodger Thoughts

Jon Weisman's outlet for dealing psychologically with the Los Angeles Dodgers, baseball and life

So it’s gonna be like that, huh?

74-57 .565 San Francisco
70-62 .530 Los Angeles

It’s gonna have to be a comeback story.

    Seems like everyone likes to be in Dodger Stadium again this year . . . except the Dodger players.

    The Snakes come in riding a 6-game skid – no problem, they’re playing the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium on Vin Scully Bobblehead night – it’s a sellout – they get a shutout.

    M. Ellis, Shane, Rivera, pitcher’s spot – 4 absolute holes in the lineup.  Regressed Ethier, our manager batting two of our worst hitters #1 and #2 every day…  :(

      Punto played last night, not Ellis.  In fact, I’d rather not see Punto fascination.

    We win the west by 3 (maybe wishful thinking) ;)

  7. I figured we added a lot of pop at the deadline at least with A-Gon (does he have a nickname yet?) and Hanley.  Oh well.  It’s getting late kind of early around here.

      He brings with him “A-Gon” and “Gonzo”, but look forward to him earning something along the lines of “El Jefe” or “El Patron”.

    Wonder how much comebackiness we gots.

    I’ve seen a couple references, like about the postgame meeting last night, where Don talks about making sure the players know what’s at stake, things  are urgent, and so forth.

    Sometimes these things  where players clear the air may do some good, sometimes not.  What managers say really doesn’t matter too much.

    The team as now constructed hasn’t been together long enough to have personal issues, you’d hope.What air could need clearing?

    These guys know what’s at stake.  They know things are urgent. 

    If the problem is everyone trying to hit a 5-run homer or pitch a no-hitter, this kind of meeting just makes people who are already trying too hard just press that much more–it’s counterproductive.

    The season isn’t lost until and unless the math says it is.  Didn’t a real longshot got hot near the end last year and came roaring back to win the whole thing?

    And didn’t some folks who seemed to be in good shape real late last year have some memorable collapses?

    Might be time for the triumphant return of young Dee. Cruz on over to 2nd?
