Game 72, Mariners at Dodgers

Woah, stayed at work too late, almost missed the start. 7:10. Some guy versus some other guy. Things at stake.

Bloomquist at second again. This is where I like having Bloomquist on the roster: a guy who can sub in for a couple of starts for a regular and not kill you with the glove, isn’t totally helpless with the bat, can steal a base.

    196 – Pineiro’s trade value went up about half a tick tonight.

    Why? Which GM doesn’t have access to the game video?

    He threw a decent percentage of strikes, got a lot of groundballs and only walked one batter.

    I don’t fault Pineiro much for what happened in the seventh inning. He was gassed by the end of six. It was painfully obvious to everyone. Except his manager.

    I don’t fault him for the 7th either. The 5th had the makings of disaster and it seemed the Dodgers helped him with impatience at the plate. I think he got a little lucky.

    Derek – the Prius is the perfect taxicab car. Huge fuel savings in the city, and you’ll wear it out before it breaks. There’s a guy up here who bought a Prius to use as a cab, drove it 400,000 km, and then bought a new one. All inside 2 years.

    That LOB column was dumb. I’d much rather see something relevant to the R-H-E line. Like walks.

    Vince and Dom only sucked by comparison to Joe. They were both all stars. And neither of them dealt South American drug apparatus.

    RAUL’S AUDACITY (See # 186) – It may have been better in the long run had RAUL been out. That, coupled with the BETANCOURT foolishness, might have put a stop to this “aggressive” baserunning.
    But now GROVER will see Raul’s daring as evidence of the success of “aggressiveness,” and we’ll keep seeing this foolishness.

    DOM DIMAGGIO MEDIOCRE? (See # 159 & # 177) – Get real.
    Dom had an eleven-year career (with the same team), put up respectable numbers (.299/.383/.419), was voted to seven (7) All-Star teams, and was generally considered a better fielder than his brother JOE.
    But as long as you’re going to give such wide latitude to mediocrity, let’s not forget that early quintet of a HOF-er and four others.

    Joey and Alex Cora work?

    While Joey didn’t set the world ablaze with his play, he’s 10 times the player his brother is.

    What about the Reuschel brothers?

    Bloomquist unnecessarily covring 2nd (Se # 167) – This reminds me of something from Dick Williams’ NO MORE,MR. NICE GUY.
    He points out that in the final 1951 NL Playoff Game, that thje Dodger manager–Charlie Dressen, IIRC–had Gil Hodges hold the runner on 1st (unnecessarily).

  12. John D. on June 22nd, 2006 12:58 am

    210 (ont.) So the ball–potential 3rd out too–sneaked through the infield, right through the spot where Hodges would have been.
    You’d think these guys would know better.
