It’s Sandy Koufax bobblehead night at Dodger Stadium, and there’s still time to go get your freebie. If you can’t make it (primarily because you’re hanging here for our simulthread – comments below), there are already a couple hundred bobbling Sandys to be had on eBay.

Now I think the Koufax bobblehead is nice, of course, but if you know me even in the slightest, you must know there is no way I’m gonna sit here twiddling, and miss a chance to get out the vote for my the “Statue for Sandy Koufax” e-petition, launched at the old publication during the early McCourt administration.

Cole On L.A. just celebrated a whopping three months online, and I’ve mentioned it in passing, what, once? The previous gig at The Orange County Register was a little over a year and I didn’t utter a syllable. So forgive me now while I get this out of my system:

IF YOU HAVEN’T SIGNED THE BLINKIN STATUE FOR SANDY E-PETITION, WHAT IN THE WORLD? Come on, people. Don’t make me come down there. Sign the bleeping thing.

So, in conclusion, Sandy Koufax bobblehead, nice; Sandy Koufax statue, better. The polls are running 100% for, 0% against. When have you seen that in this in country?

Hello?! Vote Yes on 32.

at the very least, a jackie robinson statue
placed at the right field entrance gate;
 
 
 

August 7, 2012 7:24 pm

two nice plays, but both hard hit. kemp can hit it where they aint

August 7, 2012 7:25 pm

 @larrydoby why there?
 

August 7, 2012 7:25 pm

How heavy is that piano that Hairston is carrying on his back. C’mon now……

August 7, 2012 7:26 pm

avatar

 @larrydoby Citifield is more like a Jackie Robinson (and Dodger and Giant) tribute than a Mets tribute

August 7, 2012 7:27 pm

avatar

he’s old. not you and me old, but old

August 7, 2012 7:28 pm

avatar

 @The Commish  @larrydoby I can see how that would irk mets fans.
 

August 7, 2012 7:28 pm

way to start the second

August 7, 2012 7:29 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole 
 
as long as the wood is hard, batter up !

August 7, 2012 7:32 pm

avatar

 
who’s on second ?

August 7, 2012 7:32 pm

avatar

it’s frightening watching kemp running around the yard, diving and all, but that didn’t look like that much of stretch for him. course, that’s easy for me to say.

August 7, 2012 7:33 pm

avatar

 @larrydoby what’s on third?
 

August 7, 2012 7:33 pm

avatar

 @The Commish 
 
 
hairston should be used to
carrying a load on his back;
 
after all, that chip in his shoulder from
which hairston is better, must be heavy …..

Did you guys hear Vinny comparing losing Tulowitski and Helton to  the Dodgers losing Kemp and Ethier?  Well, I guess we all make mistakes.

August 7, 2012 7:35 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole 
 
because that’s the entrance we use
from parking lot g to enter the stadium;
 
after all, i want to see it every game …..
 
 
 
 
 

August 7, 2012 7:35 pm

avatar

you wanna talk old, helton is a relic. should’ve retired three years ago, but i’ll bet he’ll stay another two or three.

August 7, 2012 7:36 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @larrydoby I mean, you enter at the Jackie Robinson rotundra, and the front is shaped like Ebbets Field. Just no Mets personality at all.

August 7, 2012 7:37 pm

avatar

 @The Commish 
 
slipping as vinny may, it will truly be a very darkened
day when that voice for our generation goes silent …..
 
 
 

August 7, 2012 7:37 pm

 @larrydoby no doubt my lower-case friend.

August 7, 2012 7:38 pm

joe morgan would go throught this routine, and then steal second.

August 7, 2012 7:38 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole 
 
isn’t helton the franchise player
still signed through like 2016 ?
 
 

August 7, 2012 7:38 pm

Didn’t Jermaine Dye break a leg on a foul ball?

August 7, 2012 7:40 pm

there’s one way for loney not to hit into a dp, and you just saw it.

August 7, 2012 7:41 pm

avatar

 @The Commish I always liked that guy, but don’t remember that.
 

August 7, 2012 7:41 pm

Spoiler — well I knew something bad was gonna happen.

August 7, 2012 7:42 pm

August 7, 2012 7:42 pm

avatar

 
just looked up helton’s stats;
 
he is signed through next season, 2013,
but has amassed over $150 million.
 
the interesting question si, will he
be considered for the hall of fame ?
 
with 2,400 hits / 350 homers
/ batting average at .320 !
 

August 7, 2012 7:44 pm

avatar

he’ll get some votes, but he won’t get in. and I wouldn’t vote for him.

August 7, 2012 7:44 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole I hope he does; I have a pristine rookie card of his.

August 7, 2012 7:46 pm

August 7, 2012 7:58 pm

 @Howard Cole Nope, nothin’

August 7, 2012 7:59 pm

 @Howard Cole I guess only the Pirates and NYY can carry catchers (Barajas and Martin) around the Mendoza line.

August 7, 2012 7:59 pm

 @The Commish not good.
 

August 7, 2012 8:00 pm

 @Howard Cole I asked if he was ok.

August 7, 2012 8:00 pm

 @The Commish that sounds fair. but mccuthen is the mvp right now, I’ll tell you that.

two more ribs for headley.

August 7, 2012 8:02 pm

 @Howard Cole And I have him on my fantasy team, and actually drafted him by accident.

August 7, 2012 8:02 pm

That’s funny I was just gonna say that.

August 7, 2012 8:03 pm

avatar

Vic gotta be running

August 7, 2012 8:03 pm

avatar

they’ll wait till there’s two out.

August 7, 2012 8:04 pm

avatar

kemp’s due. should be at least 2-0 in a minute.

August 7, 2012 8:04 pm

avatar

 @The Commish I still don’t get why the pads would even consider trading him, and yet they gave quentin and street all that money. both guys are hurt all the time, and  who needs a closer in last place? I mean, fourth.
 

August 7, 2012 8:06 pm

avatar

 @The Commish I better watch out though, or someone is going to acuse me of wanting headley, ala randy winn and orlando cabrera.
 

August 7, 2012 8:07 pm

on another matter, I had a vision earlier of maury wills on get smart. do you remember that?

August 7, 2012 8:08 pm

it’s up to kemp.

August 7, 2012 8:09 pm

Dodgers on road with Marlins, Pirates and Braves. aaahhh – I can actually watch a whole game.

August 7, 2012 8:25 pm

avatar

they’ll play better on the road. I’m ready for that right now.

August 7, 2012 8:26 pm

avatar

 @The Commish he might just play against the lefties. and pinch hit. one more day for kennedy in the minors and uribe is gone thrs.
 

August 7, 2012 8:27 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Something about and ERA around 2.00 at Dodger Stadium.

August 7, 2012 8:27 pm

i can watch the whole game too.

August 7, 2012 8:27 pm

 @Howard Cole From your lips to God’s ears.

at least the angels are losing. so there’s that.

August 7, 2012 8:29 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Except I want Trout to do well; he does almost every game.

August 7, 2012 8:29 pm

avatar

 he looked ok last night. couple of frustrating innings, but I can’t complain about two in seven. two in seven should be a quallty start, by the way.
 

August 7, 2012 8:29 pm

another walk for aj, gets harang out of the way

August 7, 2012 8:30 pm

why don’t they just sit strasburg now, and bring him back in sept, oct.

August 7, 2012 8:43 pm

Sands could’ve done that

August 7, 2012 8:43 pm

 @The Commish misty may coulda done that.
 

August 7, 2012 8:44 pm

 @Howard Cole 
 
loge level is the best deal in the ball park;

August 7, 2012 8:44 pm

August 7, 2012 8:44 pm

 @Howard Cole Give the game goat to Pacheco.

August 7, 2012 8:49 pm

 @The Commish not yet. there’s plenty of time for loney to hit into two more dps and drop another throw.

 @Howard Cole We won a secondary bowl vs. Kansas St. last year. Our coach is gone to the pro’s , Tampa Bay.  I think he stunk as a college coach. Must have dirty pics of the TB owner.

August 7, 2012 8:54 pm

 @The Commish I’m really not reacting to much. there is so little to react at really. it’s just, I see a line drive and pray for a hit.

 Drysdale’s sneer with that “acre of teeth” [as I once read to describe his teeth] was easy to hate.  He ended up a White Sox broadcaster, right?  and died pretty young

I’m thinking with new renovations being done on Dodger Stadium starting after this season, we might see our own “Hall of Fame” section at the ballpark with statues and plaques in the near future.  I know that I am hoping for that.  I can think of a quite a few former players and managers and a certain Hall of Fame Broadcaster or two who also need some recognition as well. 

August 8, 2012 10:14 am

avatar

Thanks, Kristen, and well said. It’s great to see you posting here, and I hope you’ll check in whenever you like. One statue I can really envision, just from the standpoint of how neat it would look, is the classic Don Drysdale sidearm delivery, in a photo we’ve all seen 100 times. With that sneer of his. Sidearm and the sneer from Big D.

 @prettyrose33 Holy cow is that you Kristen from all the Dodger forums i was on a few years ago? Hiya…

August 8, 2012 5:54 pm

I have been saying it since last week. They need to play together for a few weeks in order to mesh. Not to mention Donnie needs to keep the same lineups, sans 1b of course. In fact over the weekend it stayed pretty consistent. 

August 8, 2012 5:56 pm

avatar

well, isn’t that just a perfect way to start the ball game. unbleeping believable.

August 8, 2012 7:13 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  Seriously, as soon as Kemp turned around I knew that ball was going off the wall.  Uggghhhh… and it looks like the ol’ Bills is back.

August 8, 2012 7:19 pm

avatar

 @DeathByYoungblood exactly. THIS is chad billingsley. same old same old. and matt is a mess again. sure, it’s the hammy, but man he looks like crap. victorino should be in center. but more importantly, steve, I’m planning another awful, awful, awful evening of depressingness.

August 8, 2012 7:21 pm

 @Howard Cole
 I liked it

August 8, 2012 7:21 pm

bills. it’s like he gets all upset and loses whatever concentration he had because of that bad first play. that’s his biggest problem. he couldn’t shake it off, with the bases empty and just start again.

August 8, 2012 7:23 pm

avatar

great, so what’s that, 30 pitches and two runs?

August 8, 2012 7:23 pm

 @Howard Cole   Sure wish we played all our games at Pac Bell…

August 8, 2012 7:23 pm

Here I was, glad I missed seeing those two previous Rockies games (I didn’t realize the Rockies were loaded with Hall of Fame pitchers) and it already looks like I should have taken one more night away from home.

quick. homer or dp?

August 8, 2012 7:29 pm

 @Tom in San Mateo  @Howard Cole  Ahhh, nothing like gloating to turn a game around.  The Dodgers are gonna win this one 9-4.

August 8, 2012 7:29 pm

 @DeathByYoungblood  @Tom in San Mateo man, would I LOVEEEE that.
 

August 8, 2012 7:29 pm

 I’m confused.  is that a picture of koufax dealing up to or Madison Bumgarner?  they’re starting to look a lot alike these days.  :)

August 8, 2012 7:30 pm

The Dodgers are gonna score runs tonight.  Final score 9-4.

August 8, 2012 7:30 pm

 @Howard Cole I did, but you left me the info in my email.

August 8, 2012 7:30 pm

the main squeeze is in a luxury box for work, lucky her. she’s probably telling everyone about bills, in case they don’t know.

9-4 Dodgers that is… Tom.

August 8, 2012 7:31 pm

 @DeathByYoungblood  @Howard Cole
 you’re right.  D’s can come back and win this one easily.  sheesk!  it’s the rockies

August 8, 2012 7:31 pm

 @Tom in San Mateo yeah, that guy’ll be in hall of fame soon.
 

August 8, 2012 7:31 pm

 @Howard Cole I’ll say HR.

August 8, 2012 7:32 pm

 @Howard Cole
 and I think the cards get to face Bumgarner tomorrow.  if he’s on he’s tough as ever.  just turned 23

August 8, 2012 7:32 pm

That’s what happens when guys get on base.

August 8, 2012 7:32 pm

kemp stinks. Trade him for the comeback rights to Johnny Lemaster right now.

August 8, 2012 7:33 pm

 @Tom in San Mateo  @Howard Cole  He’s still a Bum…

August 8, 2012 7:33 pm

avatar

 @DeathByYoungblood with a little help from the real colorado rockies
 

August 8, 2012 7:34 pm

avatar

But seriously folks, how many runs does Bills give back in the top of the second?

August 8, 2012 7:34 pm

avatar

 @DeathByYoungblood  @Howard Cole
 yep.  and our Bum.  thankfully

August 8, 2012 7:35 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole
 he’ll likely end up with more wins than koufax. 

August 8, 2012 7:35 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  He’s gonna settle down.  He’ll only make it thru 5 innings, but 2 is all he’ll give up.

August 8, 2012 7:36 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole
 8?

August 8, 2012 7:36 pm

avatar

 @DeathByYoungblood that would be great. you have a good attitude, obviously. I’m just very leery lately. or is it, leary, as in tim leary.

 @Howard Cole  When I was a kid, we offered my friend’s younger brother $5 if he could eat a heaping tablespoon of Joe Weider protein powder without any water.  He nearly choked to death and my friend’s mom almost killed us.

A TOOTBLAN for Ethier.

August 8, 2012 8:14 pm

yeah, and the ump called him out by reputation. sure looks like he beat it.

August 8, 2012 8:15 pm

avatar

and of course they totally stop dead in their tracks after the first.

August 8, 2012 8:15 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole We saw it differently, then. The ball got there before Andre was even close, I thought.

August 8, 2012 8:16 pm

avatar

 @Johnny Dodger ball and tag not the same thing exactly.
 

August 8, 2012 8:17 pm

 @Howard Cole That’s true, Howard, but I meant there was no way Ethier was safe, IMHO.
You want to arm wrestle?

I still say the “quality start” is a ridiculous stat. they ought to call it “the tomko start.”

August 8, 2012 8:26 pm

Scutaro has 7 RBI’s – now that’s overkill.  You’re right Howard, Wainwright will stone ‘em tomorrow.

August 8, 2012 8:26 pm

 @DeathByYoungblood
 Bumgarner will be no picnic for the cards

August 8, 2012 8:28 pm

 @Tom in San Mateo  @DeathByYoungblood yes  he will.
 

August 8, 2012 8:32 pm

 @Tom in San Mateo  @DeathByYoungblood and come on, you have to admit, the giants god lucky with vogelsong. there was no reason to expect that guy to have a career at all.

August 8, 2012 8:32 pm

dang, I’m sweatin’ it just like  you D’s fans.  Hope the Giants win.

August 8, 2012 8:32 pm

giants need a safety for the better football score.

August 8, 2012 8:33 pm

 @Howard Cole  @DeathByYoungblood
not as lucky as the Dodgers getting LasSordas 16th cousin, that great hitting catcher many years ago. 

August 8, 2012 8:34 pm

 @Tom in San Mateo  @DeathByYoungblood that’s a fair comparison. kind of.
 

August 8, 2012 8:35 pm

 @Howard Cole  @DeathByYoungblood
 seems every time Vogelson pitches I look at the linescore and the opponent has maybe two hits after five.  the guy’s a total stud.  ML ERA leader

August 8, 2012 8:35 pm

so, dodger fans (not you, tom), does anyone realize we could very easily be looking at a sweep by colorado here?

August 8, 2012 8:39 pm

 @Tom in San Mateo  @DeathByYoungblood but he wasn’t. look at those numbers for 11 years. 11 years!  he had one era under five. even his minor league career was hard to watch. they got totally totally lucky.

last time I saw a dodger hit two three run homers in a game was raul mondesi, opening day several years ago. one tied the game in the ninth, the other won it in extras. incredible.

 @rotarandy I just don’t see why some of the other bloggers were so down on victorino. I’ve admired him for years. what’s not to like? I just don’t see it.

 @DeathByYoungblood glad to have you back. you think they can hold on?

 @Howard Cole
 i only have a dump phone no tweets

August 8, 2012 9:25 pm

 @Howard Cole  Yep.  I predicted 9-4 and I’ve never been wrong.  Well, except that one time about that one thing…

August 8, 2012 9:26 pm

avatar

 @DeathByYoungblood hey, did you ever explain that screen name? something about the rams?

August 8, 2012 9:27 pm

bullpen, please.

August 8, 2012 9:29 pm

 @Howard Cole
 relax, D’s are gonna win this one.  9 to 4, just as I said.  :)

nice play, andre. nice relief, backwards baby.

nice catch andre;
 
all that money MUST
be weighing you down.
 
 
 

August 8, 2012 9:32 pm

ok, I think they can hold 6-4. maybe. but it should be 6-3.

August 8, 2012 9:35 pm

avatar

a game of catch

August 8, 2012 9:43 pm

avatar

if the rocks come back to win sure gonna suck for dodger fans

August 8, 2012 9:49 pm

avatar

I’m semi-confident kenley can hold them to one run.

August 8, 2012 9:51 pm

avatar

They better score three more runs in the next two innings or my prediction is toast.  Luckily, Treanor and Loney will be up this inning so it’s pretty much a lock.

August 8, 2012 9:55 pm

avatar

 @DeathByYoungblood we still got victorino. and loney can’t hit into the dp now.
 

August 8, 2012 9:55 pm

Once again I’ve lost MLB TV.

August 8, 2012 9:57 pm

 @Howard Cole I dunno, Howard.  I’ve got it back, but it keeps freezing up.

August 8, 2012 9:58 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Didn’t get to see any of the three at bats, but guess I didn’t miss much.

August 8, 2012 9:59 pm

avatar

So, while we’re still here Howard, can players still be put on waivers for the Dodgers to claim?

August 8, 2012 10:00 pm

avatar

 @Johnny Dodger the commish knows about some complaint line that they have. I’ll find out for you if you want. but they don’t make it easy to even ask questions.
 

August 8, 2012 10:00 pm

avatar

 @DeathByYoungblood sure. there’s probably 500 of them on waivers right now throught baseball. and man, would I love to have access to that list.

August 8, 2012 10:01 pm

avatar

one down.

August 8, 2012 10:01 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Thanks, but I’ve done that before, and it’s not their fault, but if it is, they’re sorry.

August 8, 2012 10:02 pm

avatar

do you guys know how to react if you win.  been awhile.  hehehe.  hahaha

August 8, 2012 10:03 pm

I’ll let you know when/if we get there.

August 8, 2012 10:03 pm

August 8, 2012 10:04 pm

August 8, 2012 10:05 pm

 @Howard Cole   I think we’ll see Puig come up when rosters expand.  Maybe he’ll be lightning in a Cuban bottle…

August 8, 2012 10:05 pm

 it’ll be in mid 80′s there tomorrow, or hotter.  nice.  hardly scorching.  though I bet Redding/Shasta area will be nice and not.

 i remember living in San Luis Obispo as a young kid and picking up Angel’s broadcasts from LA at night.  this would have been 1964 to 1967.  Big name on that team was Jim Fregosi, a San Mateo guy

August 8, 2012 10:15 pm

 @Howard Cole
 it’s low and they’re really exciting.  if they weren’t Oakland they’d be the talk of baseball everywhere.

August 8, 2012 10:16 pm

Congrats to the Dodgers,  they got one from the rockies.  gotta keep it interesting. 

August 8, 2012 10:18 pm

 Night, Johnny D. 

August 8, 2012 10:19 pm

avatar

Thank you Mr. Wainwright…

August 9, 2012 1:31 pm

avatar

Damn straight, Steve. Wainwright is great, and a clutch win against the hated ones. I knew they’d come up empty after scoring 15 last night. Of course, given the same situation, the Dodgers would do exactly the same thing. And I’m thankful for the night away for our side.
