Dodger Thoughts

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

Table for three, anyone?

On April 12, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and Clayton Kershaw on the mound in Arizona, but they lost.

On April 24, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and a ninth-inning lead in New York, but they lost.

On April 27, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and a seventh-inning lead against Milwaukee, but they lost.

On May 13, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and A.J. Ellis tripled, but they got plastered.

On May 17, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and a sixth-inning lead in Atlanta, but they lost.

On May 29, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and two homers in the ninth inning against the Angels’ closer, but they lost.

On June 5, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and Kershaw on the mound against San Diego, but they lost.

On June 8, the Dodgers had a two-game winning streak and … you get the idea.

Eight straight times the Dodgers have failed to win three in a row.  What happens tonight?

    Ninth time’s a charm.

    Fortunately I’m not (throws salt over left shoulder).

    Well we are now 1 game under .500 for the season against the Padres….Let’s sweep the gnats to get to the same status

      It’s good to sweep this series mostly because the Dodgers just need wins. Over anybody. At anytime.

    a small bat flip to boot

    Time to turn two

  9. Blast it! I’m blockaded from this game on ESPN2. Why? The Dodgers (and every other West Coast team) claim Hawai’i as their territory, but it’s only recently (within the last couple of years, I think) that ESPN has not broadcast Dodgers games into this state.

      Hahaha, great seats, KT! H
      How’s the service there?

    Yasiel Puig is hitting .688 (11-for-16) with one HR in 1st inning, and ,571 (12-for-21) with 3 HR vs LHP

    Now let’s scratch this inning

    Eric Stephen ‏@truebluela 1m

    Yasiel Puig has Dodgers records thru 20 games for total bases (57, 3 more than Del Bissonette, 1928) and hits (33, tied w/Gibby Brack, 1937)

    Let’s hope Belisario can do it right now.

    If Belli can turn around, maybe that table for three is available . . . still, the other year-long bugaboo is there: sleeping offense.

    Kemp and SVS, just like yesterday, 1 hit for each , both doubles. Incredibly, they each scored on separate Nick Buss triples. Kemp 1 for 3 with a walk, 2 runs scored, 1 SB. SVS 1 for 4, 1 run scored. They both struck out once. Game is 9-9 bottom of 9th. Former SFG Jonathan Sanchez started in his first game for Alb. went 3 innings 66 pitches (in honor of Puig?) gave up 6 runs.

    Hanley!…running hard but now limping

  20. KT


    Come on AJ

    Are we tempting everything by going further with Belli? Isn’t this like a full-body exam of a gift horse?

  23. Evening all… Just back from a thing and catching up on the game… I may be over reacting slightly, but I feel that this series is the one that either pushes the Blue forward to deflates the season. If not this one, certainly all the games against the NL West before the All-Star break. Thoughts?

      I agree with the timing — 12 games under .500 basically means you’re not beating anyone . . . and they need to start beating SOMEone . . . LOTS of someones! (And it doesn’t hurt if it’s those ahead in the standings.)

    Let’s get some runs and give Paco the win!!!

      Nice to be on the receiving end of a play like that!

  29. Sitting on my hands. (right after I type this)

    Okay, David — I’d settle for a Puig sac fly, single . . . anything for the RBI. (I’m not picky — even a run without an RBI.)

  32. WOOoooooooooooooo

    Was the 2nd pitch; first was high

  34. KT

    Yes moving on up!!

  35. Did Yasiel try to lap Mark Ellis on that wild pitch?

  36. KT

    SD just tied the phils in the bottom of 9th…Damn

      Let Bochy be second-guessed — Donnie’s had a season of that!

    Let’s go Kenley

  40. Listen, I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m treating this as if someone is throwing a perfect game.

      You mean an “interesting” game. :)

      • Yes, this has become “interesting.”

      • Plus, I live in the Bay Area and so I’d love to shove this “Interesting” happening in the face of about 25 or so friends. That sounds more aggressive than I feel, but you understand.

      Every time the bullpen is out there, I feel like that!

  41. Just threw up in mouth a little bit.

    Ah…a four out inning. Readies the scotch.

  43. KT

    Come on AJ…stop those with your body

  44. KT

  45. I wish Kenley would pick ’em off.

    ESPN Stats & Info ‏@ESPNStatsInfo 7m

    From @EliasSports: Yasiel Puig is 1st player in MLB history with 34 hits, 7 HR in his 1st 20 career games

  52. Anonymous

    That 8th inning brought something I hadn’t felt in a long time — optimism about the upcoming hitters: Puig, Adrian, Hanley, even Andre.

    • Anonymous

      I felt the same way. Actually thought,”Okay, we got this.” Then I thought “What?!”

  53. KT

    Gnats now in 4th place and falling
