I think you mean Earl Weaver. Whitey had a soft spot for slap-hitting track guys who could run and play a little baseball.


Yes you're right.

Was at the Angles vs Dodgers game tonight. Sold out, great game. Dodger fans are loud. Nevertheless Angels won in bottom of the ninth as a result of a catcher throwing error! Pujols did not get a hit and Trout is out injured. Puig is a specimen!

From hero (two out home run) to goat (throwing error) in same inning. I think Utley should have made the catch.

A lot of good things to like about tonight's victory. KERSHAW wins his12th. First to get there. And he strikes out 12. Dodgers set a franchise record with 50th homerun in June. 3 more tonight with Puig hitting his 15th.

3 more home runs - Puig makes a great catch- and A. Woods goes 9 - 0

Bons I am surprised you are not a Padres fan. Then again I am not. I root for the Angles, the Dodgers when they don't play them and the Astros. We have a dear family friend coaching 3rd base there.

Goo, I grew up in Whittier and started listening to Vin Scully and Jerry Doggett when the Dodgers moved to L. A. I root for the Angels when they're not playing the Dodgers.

8 - 0 tonight. Rich Hill pitches a gem. Three more home runs. Another grand slam. Rocs have dropped to 7 back. Big 3 game series against D backs starting on Tuesday.

Got a little dicey last night but thanks to Justin Turner's home run and Clayton's 11 Ks Dodgers extend lead over D backs to 3.5 gms. Kershaw first to 13 wins. > Vogelsang.

And we got our guy going up on the bump tonight who is attempting to go 10-0 with a 1.83 ERA, yet not making the ASG.

Makes sense! South OC here. Bought tickets to the game when the Angels became world champion. Sat in the season ticket holder section. Many of whom were crying from joy/relief...

Meanwhile, Bumgarner will fit right in when he returns. Gave up 9 runs, 4 HRs, at San Jose last night. Go Giants!

Finally we can get this thread back on track - sh-t talking. Daily recaps are boring for both sides, unless it's head to head.

Nah, when the Giants were good (FWIW, the Giants have won 7 of 8, and you don't see anyone posting daily recaps), there weren't daily recaps. You're also the only Dodgers fan doing this. It's not the point of the thread. Do whatever you want, I just think you're killing the spirit of the thread. Just talk some trash, have some fun. It's not a thread for ESPNEWS.

My recaps are only when the Dodgers accomplish something special like home runs , pitching milestones, wins against contenders, etc. I don't rag on the Giants. Just being positive. That shouldn't offend anyone.

No, it doesn't offend me. I just find recaps boring. I WANT you to offend, haha.

Home runs are "special"?

Just had to do this. Dodgers come back with 4 in the bottom of the 9th to win 5-4. Sweep series from D-backs. Now up by 5.5 games.

That's the thing. They've been solid during the regular season for several years. Then the playoffs are disappointing. We shall see

well, seeing as how baseball seems to have the least probablistic outcomes, i just personally have to make that leap of faith and trust the process... make the playoffs every year and have a chance.

Last year against the Cubs, I was wondering use a short rotation, matching ace vs ace. seems like w the series lead already, it might be better to get more rest and stagger the rotation so our #1 is going up against their #2, our #2 against their #3... water under the bridge

Help needed, Doyers:

I've been to Dodger Stadium once, about a decade ago. I'm helping our nanny buy tickets to a game on her vacation next month (don't worry, she won't be allowed in our home with Dodger gear). What's a good section? She's been to ATT once and we sat in View Level Infield (upper deck, but close to home plate).

I'm seeing some decent prices on Stubhub - less than $20 in Loge Value 160, 161, 162; Infield Reserve VIP 27; etc.

Any recommendations? Does first or third base side have sun concerns for a 7pm game in August?

Sun is only a concern for about an hour but by then it's not super bright. If worried about that the back of each section is usually under canopy. I would get anything in between the bases. Loge is nice, mid-level. I like getting field seats (even if past the bases) because can go early and try to get autographs or fly balls in BP (I think you can do that no matter what seats you have if you go early).

The best deal in baseball though is the upper deck and they are all situated in between the bases. They used to be like $6 as recently as like 5 years ago. Probably more like $20 now but still a great deal. Sure it's a bit high up, but you can see the ball better than on the field by the foul pole. Most of the action obviously happens in between the bases. Other parks would probably call them "inner/infield" reserves and could charge $40 for them.

Thanks. I went with Section 27RS (?) Row A - looks like the front row of the second deck, just off third base. Only about $25 each. Not bad.

Sounds good. Yah the sun won't be much of a problem. Should be shaded by then.
