Dodgers, Express Giving Games Away

Posted in Baseball at 12:14 pm by

If Buster Olney can play the whole “I was stuck in a cabin with only dial-up” excuse twice a month, so can I. CSTB-action has been a little slow the past day or two, as I’ve been stalking one of the best live bands I’ve ever seen.

It’s kinda sad, really. I just added a third Boris t-shirt to my wardrobe, despite the fact it features an approximation of the Yes logo (though the tee with the faux Venom logo never fails to generate looks of disdain on crowded elevators).

Though a couple of Monday’s baseball highlights were surely the Mets erasing a 4-1 deficit against the Fish (I nominate Carlos Delgado for Most Valuable Player To Hit Behind Carlos Beltran) and Bobby Abreu’s sick display against the D-Rays, the following results were crushers for the respective losers.

The Dodgers  turned a 7-0 lead into a 9-8 loss to the Cubs at Wrigley, despite Chicago committing a half dozen errors along the way. Good thing L.A. isn’t in a pennant race or anything.

In game one of the PCL Championship series, Round Rock were 6 outs away from taking a 1-0 lead in their best of 5 clash with Tuscon before making a pair of 8th inning errors in the Sidewinders’ 3-0 win. 17 straight scoreless innings from Express starters, yet Round Rock are in a hole. Is there any league rule preventing the Astros from sending Clemens, Pettitte or Oswalt down for a few days?

    It was actually the Cubs with the six gaffes. The Dodgers made just two.

    this was an inexcusable error, Jon. Thank you. However, unlike Dusty’s charges, I intend to make fewer than 6 today.

    freddie bynum made two errors in the first inning. one was on a jeff kent would-be GIDP ball. something tells me that reaching base on an error is more of a slap in the face to that guy than getting K’d.

    there’s a publicity shot of boris standing / sitting in front of a wall of orange and sunn stacks in the studio. there’s also a saying that a picture is worth a thousand words.
