      Who would you guess goes on Saturday in Chicago? Got tix with my daughter, who is going to school there (and is very understanding as regards her dad and the Dodgers).

      • KT

        so you get Cappy or Lee if they decide to pull the trigger

      • None of that “How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless child” stuff, huh? Lucky you. ;)

  4. Crawford out with unspecified illness, serious enough to go to the ER for.

    It has taken Cubs rookie Rusin 27 pitches to retire nine straight Gnats.

    Nice play by the catcher to block the bag at 1st

      How was Puig out?

      • KT

        He rounded 1st aggressively and the catcher followed him up the line then blocked the base as the throw came in from bruce in RF

          Thanks (I thought it was something like that with Puig involved!)

    Including tonight, multiple hits by Puig in four of his last five games.

  21. KT

    Btw with his single, Mark Ellis extended his hitting streak to 9 games

  22. KT

    Puig is now hitting. .377

    Skip Schumaker is hitting .364/.382/.576 (12-for-33) with 2 home runs and 2 doubles since switching to number 55

    Gnats, based loaded, no out, still can’t score!

    Cubs just homered off Romo

  30. KT

    Ball Game…Dodgers Win!!!!

    Back to 1.5 lead

    AZ and maybe SF & CO all lose

    Gain ground on 2 of 4 teams ahead of us

    25-6 since the historical date of 6/22

    Adios to Votto’s on base streak. Hanley now active leader with 35, I believe. (Hanley himself took away a base hit from him in the first).

    What a remarkably wonderful run this is: 25-6. I am truly enjoying things. “See” you all tomorrow.

    KT: I think the Dodgers caught your enthusiasm. Keep it up.

    @truebluela really considered using “Skip to my Ryu”. Really glad I did not.

    There is an exceptionally fine article (better than wonderful or marvelous) about the life of Dr. Frank Jobe at the dodgers web-site:

    Not a religious guy but I like this

  39. Fantastic night for Ryu. They should have him only pitch at home.

  40. KT

    called 3 out of 4 before this series started so we’ll win tomorrow ^_^

  41. foul tip

    As expected, Jonathan Sanchez very unlikely to be a direction in which the Dodgers go if they decide on more starter help. ABQ ERA 5.87, 36 hits in a bit over 30 innings, 6 HR, 16 BB, 34 K, WHIP 1.70. All together now…….UGHHHHH!

    On the limited plus side, he did well last time out July 23, 6 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 2 BB, 10Ks.

    Maybe there’s an outside chance he can help next year. But he may think he belongs in the majors and wouldn’t wait. He had an out clause if not brought up. But he seems smart enough not to exercise it so far.

    However, experienced bullpen help of the kind Ned likes is available at ABQ:

    Javy Guerra, doing well in a hitters’ park. 0.82 ERA last 10 outings, 2.51 overall, 7 saves FWIW, 28.2 IP 27 H 10 BB 24 K WHIP 1.29

    Struggling earlier this year may mean the Dodgers would be leery. Hard to see where he’d fit anyhow; not late innings except maybe in emergency.

      I hope Sánchez finds another home, preferably back at The Phone Booth To Be Named Later.

    In the second game he has played in this season, Derek Jeter homered on the first pitch to him in the first inning today.
