It was an odd opening for the Bums last night for this homestand/this series against Atlanta: In the 2nd & 4th innings, Loney & Uribe (2 of the worst hitters on the team) lead off with back-to-back hits... I couldn't believe my eyes. Uribe, though, was the Dodgers outstanding players in this game: 4-4, 3 RBI's. Capuano was decent, not good or great, but that's not surprising, as the Bums won 7-2. Poor Jurrjens though really stunk it up for Atlanta: 3 innings, 9 hits, 5 ER, 0 K's. Read a few moments ago that he's been sent down to the minors... ouch. Another "highlight" that standouts out: in the 5th inning, Kemp leads off with a single, and eventually reaches 3rd base. Either comes up, singles... Kemp tries to score, gets tagged out at home, and Ethier, almost deciding to run to 2nd before thinking better of it, gets tagged out before he can get back to 1st. Oye vey! This prompted Scully (and this would be reason #5556 why he is simply awesome) to proclaim that the "old Dodgers are back", that this play was "of the old Brooklyn bloodline of iffy play (paraphrasing)". Hehehehe. And this from last night in baseball. : A buddy of mine who lives in San Jose went to the A's game last night with a bunch of his friends there... good grief, what a depressing sight. I realize Al Davis ruined this stadium back in the mid-90's, and the A's this season aren't bursting with positive expectations, but WTF is wrong with baseball fans in Oakland? Come on now, at least show up once in awhile. Pathetic.
