    The play-by-play and the BR play-by-play software couldn’t account for Segura going backwards on the bases. So he is recorded as being out trying to steal third.

      Whatever happened, he has earned baserunning immortality.

    It’s time for Dodger Baseball

    It’s sure nice to have a three-run lead. That has not happened much so far this year.

    Come on DP

    Regarding that remarkable base-running clip from the Milwaukee game, had Segura been safe at second after he mistakenly returned to first, would he have gotten credit for a stolen base — stealing a base that he had already occupied?

    Good turn…there is the DP I ordered

  13. KT

    Come on Luis…just a single

  14. KT

    Nice Justin…Come on Carl

    51 pitches after 2…this guy isn’t long for this game

    Kemp has swung and missed, it seems to me, a high number of pitches this year. I wonder if the Dodgers have had his eyes examined to see if he needs glasses while batting.

    • foul tip

      I wondered the same a couple days back, after seeing video and pictures of Kemp wearing glasses out of uniform, which I didn’t know he did.

      Jon replied that he thought Kemp wears contacts during games.

      If not, there’s a serious case of vanity or stubborness or something going on. Every possible thing should be investigated to get to the bottom of Kemp’s problems.

    Time for another DP

  22. KT

    oh well

  23. KT

    terrible defense

      Who’dve thought that adjective would be used so often in regards to Matt?

    We knew it was going to be a long day with the double-header. . . . but I’m afraid this could be “another long day for the Dodgers.”

    • foul tip

      And maybe not. It’s still 4-3, Dodgers. ;-])

    Donnie said they don’t have confidence when they fall behind. Frankly, they don’t seem to have confidence EVER . . . maybe in the top half of the 2nd.

    • Anonymous

      Perhaps they don’t have confidence in Donnie. I certainly don’t.

    Good teams find ways to win . . . the Dodgers find ways to lose.

    To Mattingly, the bases are anchors to which runners must remain safely attached.

    Subtract the Pirates series, and we’re 4-9.

    • Anonymous

      If the Rockies subtract the Giants series, they’re 12-1.

      • Anonymous

        While we are at it, can we just subtract the giants as well?

    now we are in trouble

  53. I know it’s only 17 games into the season, but this is getting discouraging.

  54. Anonymous

    I know it’s early in the season, but right now we’re not a very good baseball team, and we’ve seen this type of performance fairly often for many years in a row now regardless of who is wearing the uniform.

    I’d love to think dumping Donnie would turn things around, but I’m not that naive. Of course, it wouldn’t upset me, even though it’s hard to envision any credible alternative.

    • They played badly at times for Torre, too.

        Mattingly is Torre Light.

          OK, if he takes Colletti with him…. Actually, I’ll bet there are some personnel changes Monday, but I don’t know if it’ll get that high.
