Third in a series. Fifty years, two months and three days ago, before 29,797 “starry-eyed fans” in the City of Angels, a young southpaw by the name of Sandy Koufax threw the first of his four no-hitters, beating the expansion New York Mets, 5-0.

The use of the word “perfecto” in the subtitle below is curious, since Koufax walked five, struck out 13, and with two double-plays, pitched to not 27 but 30 batters total, but perhaps the term was used differently in those days. Anyone with knowledge of that little bit of trivia is encouraged to enlighten us in the comments section below.

The win gave Los Angeles a 51-29 record, good for second place, a half game behind the eventual pennant-winning San Francisco Giants. Casey Stengel’s Mets landed at 20-53 after the Saturday evening loss, already 28 games out.

With only the legible sections of Frank Finch’s Los Angeles Times game story posted below, you’ll notice the reminder about Bo Belinsky’s May 5 no-hitter being the first in the new stadium at Chavez Ravine, a note about Koufax’s being the first no-no by a Dodgers’ left-hander since Nap Rucker in 1908, and that Sandy’s was the first no-hitter in the NL since Warren Spahn pitched one against the Giants, April 28, 1961.

L.A. scored four in the first to send out Bob Miller to an early shower. After Miller retired the first two batters, Willie Davis tripled and Tommy Davis and Frank Howard each singled. John Roseboro’s double scored two and Larry Burright’s single made it 4-0. Ray Daviault  relieved and pitched well, allowing only a Howard homer the rest of the way.

In the ninth, Koufax retired Richie Ashburn, Rod Kanehl and Felix Mantilla on grounders to sew it up.

August 27, 2012 6:37 pm

August 27, 2012 6:39 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole You know my handle on the message boards? I like hanging here but because i am an hour ahead of you i have to get ready around this time for the next day.

August 27, 2012 6:49 pm

@Dabigjh well admittedly, I don’t know a thing about those boards. don’t know how they work or even where they are.

August 27, 2012 6:49 pm

August 27, 2012 6:50 pm

@Tom in San Mateo giants are off tonight, right?

August 27, 2012 6:50 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole at the bottom of the magic article is a comment i just left on coors field being in scoring position while at the plate…LOL

August 27, 2012 6:52 pm

avatar

August 27, 2012 6:56 pm

avatar

well colorado has that inane 75 pitch limit, so francis is done after five, in not during the inning. time to get to him right now!

August 27, 2012 6:58 pm

avatar

be nice if andre would make him work here.

August 27, 2012 6:58 pm

avatar

and not whiff on three ptchs

August 27, 2012 6:58 pm

avatar

 @Dabigjh  @Howard Cole  @Tom
 I think billingsley was 6 and 0, something like that, since AS break.  that is too bad.  he was really geting back to an former groove. 

August 27, 2012 6:59 pm

avatar

@Dabigjh if he goes six and allows two I’ll be ok with that.

August 27, 2012 6:59 pm

avatar

nice rip there ethier. at least he sw five pitches

August 27, 2012 7:00 pm

avatar

he’s past his 75 pitches.

August 27, 2012 7:01 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Dabigjh quality start at coors. we will see him at home next week. that is where we will thrive. we need bills back at the end.

August 27, 2012 7:02 pm

August 27, 2012 7:05 pm

August 27, 2012 7:06 pm

August 27, 2012 7:07 pm

avatar

up around 90 pitches now.

August 27, 2012 7:08 pm

avatar

oh man! that would’ve been great.

August 27, 2012 7:08 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Dee Gordon got his first homer here. These guys better step it up.

August 27, 2012 7:10 pm

avatar

2 runs on 4 hits, 1BB 3 K. he needs to get through his inning easy

August 27, 2012 7:12 pm

avatar

@Dabigjh agreed. he will. then heart of the order against the new pitcher.

August 27, 2012 7:12 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Dabigjh ok i am out. dinner time. be back on tomorrow for the start

August 27, 2012 7:13 pm

@Dabigjh I’ll be here. then day game on wed.

August 27, 2012 7:14 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Dabigjh your name still links to the oc register. isnt that an angels publication

August 27, 2012 7:16 pm

@Dabigjh never heard of it.

August 27, 2012 7:17 pm

avatar

Listening to the Steiner-Monday team, CS actually said, “No safe is lead here.” I thought he was joking. Monday didn’t say anything. Beckett’s doing really good. I’m happy. KInda wish they’d pulled him when the had 1 out and 2 on in the 5th.  Too early to pull him, and no good pinch hitter to bring up, I guess.

August 27, 2012 7:22 pm

avatar

we really need that big inning now. please.

August 27, 2012 7:22 pm

avatar

@eppis1 he really that said?

August 27, 2012 7:22 pm

avatar

Down the stretch the D’s got the line-up but the pitching gonna have to do like Archie Bell & Drells. 

August 27, 2012 7:23 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo do they have the lineup? I don’t know if they do. they can still stink at any given time. they’re still the dodgers.

August 27, 2012 7:24 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo and this would be a horrible game to lose.

August 27, 2012 7:25 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Tom
 that line-up is gonna catch fire often.  can’t stop it.  I’d worry more about the pitching faltering

August 27, 2012 7:25 pm

avatar

was that matt kemp or james loney with that little ground ball?

August 27, 2012 7:26 pm

avatar

adrian is not the guy we need walking but what can you do. c’mon hanley.

August 27, 2012 7:29 pm

avatar

well this certainly sucks.

August 27, 2012 7:30 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Tom
 they have great chance to come back and beat the rockies good.  hit here, hit there, tied up.  then D’s line-up does their thing for an inning.  and voila!  a win.  hang in there. 

August 27, 2012 7:31 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Big time.  Big time sucking going on.  I kind of understand it tough – Colorado is a pitchers park and Francis’ ERA is a lights out 5.79.  Really, not a surprise…

August 27, 2012 7:32 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood i think there’s something going around called “dodgers disease.” you get traded to the dodgers, doesn’t matter who you are, you contract it. they can trade for babe ruth, willie mays and hank aaron tomorrow, and they still wouldn’t hit.

August 27, 2012 7:34 pm

avatar

beckett’s last inning if the dodgers get even one guy on. course, it’ll probably be uribe hitting for him.

August 27, 2012 7:35 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @eppis1 
Absolutely. He’s on auto pilot, not so swift on his feet.

August 27, 2012 7:35 pm

avatar

you can sure see that consistent 91 mph with beckett. and that’s obviously got to be part of his problem. nothing wrong with 91, but when you used to throw 96….

August 27, 2012 7:36 pm

avatar

gotta get this guy!

August 27, 2012 7:41 pm

avatar

Is this going to be the big come-back win that starts a 7-8 game winning streak?

August 27, 2012 7:44 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood short answer, no.

August 27, 2012 7:48 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood 5-0 in a sec

August 27, 2012 7:48 pm

avatar

lucked out there. this ump likes the low stirke.

August 27, 2012 7:49 pm

avatar

russell martin is 1-4 in 11 innings, to raise his average to .196.

August 27, 2012 7:51 pm

avatar

let’s see if he at least looks at more than 3 pitches.

August 27, 2012 7:52 pm

avatar

nice andre.

August 27, 2012 7:53 pm

avatar

i’m sorry, but they’re just awful. doesn’t matter who you trade for. they’re just horrible.

August 27, 2012 7:56 pm

avatar

OMG. a hit! an extra base hit!

August 27, 2012 8:09 pm

avatar

Ouch!  Gee, Howard, just maybe the sky is falling.

August 27, 2012 8:15 pm

avatar

they’re horrible. it’s as simple as that. they’re just horrible. you guys are lucky not to have had any competition this year.

August 27, 2012 8:16 pm

avatar

did I mention I was pissed?

August 27, 2012 8:19 pm

avatar

Good night…

August 27, 2012 8:20 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood what, you don’t think they can score 8 in the ninth?

August 27, 2012 8:21 pm

avatar

How long is Kemp gonna be out?

August 27, 2012 8:27 pm

avatar

the year.

August 27, 2012 8:30 pm

avatar

really, that was just a ridiculously stupid play. anyway, welcome to the majors josh wall.

August 27, 2012 8:31 pm

avatar

Ok, turning channel now.  Howard, I suggest putting on something that makes you laugh and not watching Sportscenter tonight.

August 27, 2012 8:32 pm

avatar

shit, even I feel bad for the D’s.

August 27, 2012 8:33 pm

avatar

I never watch any of the highlight shows after a loss. tonight will be no different. but I am sooooo pissed.

August 27, 2012 8:33 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo no you don’t.

August 27, 2012 8:33 pm

avatar

I’ve been watching 30 rock reruns from 1130 to 1230. but that’s 3 hours away!

August 27, 2012 8:34 pm

avatar

some boob on twitter thinks it’s good news that pittsburgh lost…to st. louis.

August 27, 2012 8:34 pm

avatar

Forgive me, hope my crocodile tears aren’t smearing the ink on this thread.

August 27, 2012 8:37 pm

avatar

your tears have put out the flame of my heart. but really, I’m quite sure they can score ten in the ninth….and then lose in the bottom half.

August 27, 2012 8:38 pm

avatar

is mattingly gonna get fired?

August 27, 2012 8:40 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo not a chance.

August 27, 2012 8:42 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Tom
 Bring back Walter Alston

August 27, 2012 8:43 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo @Tom he’s dead, jim.

August 27, 2012 8:44 pm

avatar

crappy game, crappy year, crappy thread, dodgers suck, I hate baseball.

August 27, 2012 8:47 pm

avatar

kirk, out.

August 27, 2012 8:47 pm

avatar

well im sure glad i missed this one by what i have read. back from seattle and will send dodger blue vibes from this perch next time…

August 27, 2012 9:59 pm

avatar

howard is here. why, I have no idea.

August 28, 2012 5:38 pm

August 28, 2012 5:39 pm

 @Howard Cole Tonight is a must win

August 28, 2012 5:40 pm

people who live in glass houses…gathers no moss.

August 28, 2012 5:41 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole
 hello…can start this onebut will miss the end for band practice…

August 28, 2012 5:41 pm

avatar

@rotarandy you’ll be wise to miss the end anyway.

August 28, 2012 5:42 pm

avatar

@Dabigjh yeah, because blanton starts tomorrow. so it’s either a series loss or a sweep. oy.

August 28, 2012 5:42 pm

avatar

“big break already” says steve lyons. we have to remember, the rockies are pretty lame too. lam(er) actually.

August 28, 2012 5:43 pm

avatar

good thing they flip flopped these guys, cause they cuoldn’t both strike out in their previous positions. this is much better.

August 28, 2012 5:43 pm

avatar

kemp hits into another dp here I’m turning off the pc and the tv.

August 28, 2012 5:45 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole
 you saying matty did something  right?

August 28, 2012 5:46 pm

avatar

@rotarandy it would be tough to hit into a dp now.

August 28, 2012 5:47 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Actually the last place rox have a ton of the farm playing and are starting to win. they have beat some tough teams the past month and are around 10 games out not 18 like they were

August 28, 2012 5:47 pm

avatar

collins says kemp is a “big, strong guy.” thanks, eric.

August 28, 2012 5:48 pm

avatar

same dodgers.

August 28, 2012 5:50 pm

avatar

@Dabigjh I don’t know. I think they beat the mets and the cubs recently. but it’s no excuse. if you can’t beat the last place team, after losing to the marlins, well, finish the sentence yourself.

August 28, 2012 5:51 pm

avatar

ethier was gonna hit into the traditional dp anyway.

August 28, 2012 5:51 pm

avatar

Oh god…not now.

August 28, 2012 5:55 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Dabigjh 100% agreed there. gotta beat the crap outta all bad teams

August 28, 2012 5:55 pm

avatar

@Dabigjh probably just got the wind knocked out of him, but don will remove him anyway.

August 28, 2012 5:56 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole i am happy they have done this well this season as i didnt expect anything with their lineup they had

August 28, 2012 5:56 pm

avatar

I’m at work, but Mason and Ireland are seriously worried.

August 28, 2012 5:57 pm

avatar

if that’s the case I’m less worried

August 28, 2012 5:57 pm

avatar

just turned it on; what the hell happened????

August 28, 2012 5:58 pm

avatar

honestly, he just played it badly, like he did last night. ran into the wall and didn’t seem tok now it was there.

August 28, 2012 5:58 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  Can Crawford play center?

August 28, 2012 5:59 pm

avatar

any other manager would take him out immediately.

August 28, 2012 5:59 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Better question – will Kemp allow it?

August 28, 2012 5:59 pm

avatar

Please, he’s got a concussion.

August 28, 2012 6:00 pm

avatar

I got a concussion just watching it.

August 28, 2012 6:00 pm

avatar

well, after your guy gives up five runs they can take him out.

August 28, 2012 6:00 pm

avatar

he’s checking his vision now.

August 28, 2012 6:00 pm

avatar

watching box score.  thought it was rain.  wish that were the cause.  Hope he’s okay, can return soon.  hate to see that.

August 28, 2012 6:01 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Shut up, you. Caps is King!

August 28, 2012 6:01 pm

avatar

collins alerts us that it’s a triple there. thank you eric.

August 28, 2012 6:01 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo they left him in

August 28, 2012 6:01 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Watching Rockies feed, thank you very much.

August 28, 2012 6:02 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole he didnt run into the wall. he tried to run through it. At least repko tried to spiderman over it…

August 28, 2012 6:02 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole got rick on the radio

August 28, 2012 6:03 pm

avatar

Uh, and Abreu is saying “what is he doing? I never get within 30 feet of the wall”. just had to, How.

August 28, 2012 6:03 pm

avatar

I hate to say it, but victorino is so much the better center fielder. but then, cruz is the better shortstop.

August 28, 2012 6:03 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Tom
 they had “delay” written on the box score.  hope he’s okay

August 28, 2012 6:03 pm

avatar

 @The Commish
 crackin up

August 28, 2012 6:04 pm

avatar

by the way, commish. they got two on in the first and gonzalez hit into a unassisted dp to second. oh, and your boy stinks.

August 28, 2012 6:04 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole I said shut up. Caps will hang in there. You’ll see.

August 28, 2012 6:05 pm

avatar

if they can’t compete w/ the Rockies, they are not going to the playoffs

August 28, 2012 6:05 pm

avatar

And you say Donnie doesn’t get it. Geeeez , he’s a dope.

August 28, 2012 6:06 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia absolutely. and if the lose tonight and tomorrow (and with blanton they should), they’re done. oh, and i’m pissed.

August 28, 2012 6:06 pm

avatar

@The Commish game’s over already. two runs is two big a mountain to climb

August 28, 2012 6:07 pm

avatar

duane kuiper on G’s radio broadcast just reported that they took him out of the game

August 28, 2012 6:07 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo bleep him.

August 28, 2012 6:07 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Tom
 is he still in the game?  that was my question

August 28, 2012 6:08 pm

avatar

@The Commish he IS a dope.

August 28, 2012 6:08 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @The Not at Coors. C’mon , this could be 15-14 before it’s over. And oh yeah, a Rockies win.

August 28, 2012 6:08 pm

avatar

on the bright side, this is gonna seem like a rain delay to chatwood, so they should come back and….uh, go down one two three.

August 28, 2012 6:09 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole on 7 pitches

August 28, 2012 6:09 pm

avatar

 @The Commish  @Howard Cole both feeds suck
 

August 28, 2012 6:10 pm

avatar

 @wesparkerinia  @Howard Cole But at least Rockies don’t have Collins.

August 28, 2012 6:11 pm

avatar

ellis is horrible. capuano is worse. dodgers are worser.

August 28, 2012 6:11 pm

avatar

ok commish, just say capuano stinks so we can all move on. just say it.

August 28, 2012 6:12 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Rivera made perfect throw; Ellis has NO hands.

August 28, 2012 6:12 pm

 @Howard Cole not yet.

August 28, 2012 6:12 pm

avatar

The baseball gods are speaking. Not well, but they are.

August 28, 2012 6:13 pm

avatar

the bench still blows…if you gotta start Kennedy and Rivera, and have Uribe on the bench…well….

August 28, 2012 6:13 pm

@The Commish CMON!

August 28, 2012 6:13 pm

mattingly’s getting ready to cry.

August 28, 2012 6:14 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Ok, he stinks. There, I said it. Ouchhhhhhhhh

August 28, 2012 6:14 pm

avatar

looked safe to me.

August 28, 2012 6:14 pm

avatar

nice play Adam…throw the damn ball

August 28, 2012 6:14 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole
 i already started

August 28, 2012 6:14 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole uh-oh somthing bad must happen. Still a minute behind.

August 28, 2012 6:15 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole He was out on replay; but a millisecond.

August 28, 2012 6:15 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Tom Yeah, what he said.

August 28, 2012 6:16 pm

avatar

any other team would beat the crap out a starter who just say for half an hour. what are beetting this team doesn’t.

August 28, 2012 6:16 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Tom the bleeping, I mean

August 28, 2012 6:16 pm

avatar

I don’t feel safe here for some reason.  looking both ways, afraid to post humor

August 28, 2012 6:18 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo I would avoid that for the moment.

August 28, 2012 6:18 pm

avatar

oh good. now they can strand a man at second.

August 28, 2012 6:18 pm

avatar

ok commish, if you’re not going to say your boy stinks, tell me how many more runs he’s going to allow, and about when. I say he gives up at least one in the second.

August 28, 2012 6:19 pm

avatar

ok, here we go. dp out of the inning.

August 28, 2012 6:20 pm

avatar

lyons is completely right there.

August 28, 2012 6:20 pm

avatar

so now…Wallach is a god?

August 28, 2012 6:21 pm

avatar

he was probably thinking “uh oh, what if I send ethier and he’s out in a hideous collision at the plate.”

August 28, 2012 6:21 pm

avatar

I’m rooting for a balk here.

August 28, 2012 6:21 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Look below, I gave in a while ago.   But FYI, his ERA is still  only 3.57

August 28, 2012 6:22 pm

avatar

so commish, if ellis walks, do they hit for your boy?

August 28, 2012 6:22 pm

avatar

not as good as a balk, but ok.

August 28, 2012 6:22 pm

avatar

3.57 for the moment. it’ll be over 4 before this game’s over.

August 28, 2012 6:24 pm

avatar

Maybe Caps hits a HR??

August 28, 2012 6:24 pm

avatar

sounded like he hit it with the morning paper.

August 28, 2012 6:24 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole LMAO

August 28, 2012 6:25 pm

avatar

I may not have mentioned in awhile, but I’m extremely pissed.

August 28, 2012 6:25 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole
 hey, you stole that from somebody, probably from some old dottering goat

August 28, 2012 6:25 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole pissed is probably enough…save extremely for when this game gets out of hand

August 28, 2012 6:25 pm

avatar

on the bright side, capuano hasn’t walked a batter yet.

August 28, 2012 6:25 pm

avatar

you guys want a Giants’ game update.  or should I just STFU

August 28, 2012 6:26 pm

avatar

 @Tom in San Mateo Yes

August 28, 2012 6:26 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo not stolen. borrowed. I said it once about two seconds before he did and the main squeeze was really impressed.

August 28, 2012 6:26 pm

avatar

 @The Commish
 okay, then, Pagan homered.  1 zero G’s

August 28, 2012 6:27 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo stfu please. there I was nic.e

August 28, 2012 6:27 pm

avatar

if you’re ever at Coors Field, the Wells Fargo level offers excellent seating, clean restrooms, good bar service, but no Coors

August 28, 2012 6:27 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo @The Commish who’s in charge here? actually, 1-0 is comforting for that matchup

August 28, 2012 6:28 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia I’m on my way to lax. be there in time for blanton to get his ass kicked.

August 28, 2012 6:30 pm

avatar

Funny the Rockie announcers are talking up a Tulowitski-Rutledge DP combo.  Be nice if they had any pitching at all.

August 28, 2012 6:31 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Tom
 whew, so long as she said nothing about a soggy morning newspaper, your fine. 

August 28, 2012 6:31 pm

avatar

Capuano missed a bat!

August 28, 2012 6:31 pm

avatar

it would really be something if the Dodgers could just start in the 2nd inning

August 28, 2012 6:31 pm

avatar

they got enough pitching be a certain team from la

August 28, 2012 6:31 pm

avatar

Martiniez homered for ‘stros.  tied 1 – 1

August 28, 2012 6:31 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia they did that already. got a whole run.

August 28, 2012 6:31 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood you shoulda stayed at work. this can’t be fun to come home to.

August 28, 2012 6:32 pm

avatar

pedro martinez is on the astros now?

August 28, 2012 6:32 pm

avatar

 @wesparkerinia SP and bench will be this off season

August 28, 2012 6:32 pm

avatar

switching back to COL feed Collins/Lyons are so bad….

August 28, 2012 6:32 pm

avatar

1-2-3 = Caps is Back!

August 28, 2012 6:33 pm

avatar

last time I checked the first inning was part of the game.

August 28, 2012 6:35 pm

avatar

well, I was wrong about victorino. he’s been awful with the bat.

August 28, 2012 6:37 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole I tried to tell ya.

August 28, 2012 6:37 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole bite your tongue

August 28, 2012 6:37 pm

avatar

ok enough. we don’t need to see that ten more times.

August 28, 2012 6:38 pm

avatar

sit down asshole.

August 28, 2012 6:39 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  First time I saw it.  I was working.

August 28, 2012 6:39 pm

avatar

okay, gonna make a concession.  ya know that Dodger Voodoo doll I ordered on-line from Haiti and had overnighted to me the day the D’s got Adrian Gonzalez and into which I pushed 47 pins and 15 needles?  Well, I just removed two pins and one needle.  Maybe things will get a little better for the D’s.

August 28, 2012 6:40 pm

avatar

I’m turning on the Republican convention. 

August 28, 2012 6:41 pm

avatar

 @The Commish  @Howard Cole  I dropped Victorino from my fantasy team – then he was traded and I wished I had held him – now he’s available again and I don’t want to jinx him.

August 28, 2012 6:41 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole he is not out LF anyway. Our LF is on the DL til the end of next spring

August 28, 2012 6:41 pm

avatar

 @The Commish  I’ll save you the trouble.  The rich guy gets the nomination.

August 28, 2012 6:42 pm

avatar

Juan!

August 28, 2012 6:42 pm

avatar

 @DeathByYoungblood  @Howard Cole I let go of Goldschmidt early on, but I did pick up Trout.

August 28, 2012 6:42 pm

avatar

Funny guy…

August 28, 2012 6:42 pm

avatar

you are not allowed to leave during a capuano stinking. unfair.

August 28, 2012 6:42 pm

avatar

what a piece of shit!

August 28, 2012 6:43 pm

avatar

Juan didn’t even try!

August 28, 2012 6:43 pm

avatar

just wait ’til next year….piss

August 28, 2012 6:43 pm

avatar

Well, I do have Rosario on my fantasy team.

August 28, 2012 6:44 pm

avatar

 @wesparkerinia i am excited for next season. 

August 28, 2012 6:44 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Still here.

August 28, 2012 6:44 pm

avatar

@Dabigjh @wesparkerinia why?

August 28, 2012 6:45 pm

avatar

are you kidding me?

August 28, 2012 6:45 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @Dabigjh  @wesparkerinia ownership is awesome. it will be very entertaining. 

August 28, 2012 6:45 pm

avatar

Gold Glove, my ass

August 28, 2012 6:46 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia not kidding you. it’s a complete collapse. mattingly’ll probably call a team meeting, and kemp won’t remember even being there.

August 28, 2012 6:46 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @wesparkerinia our OF will be set at some point. 1B has no more black hole. The left side is good. More SP, RP and bench help and we are WS bound

August 28, 2012 6:47 pm

avatar

Gonzalez sucks, he shoulda had it. 

August 28, 2012 6:47 pm

avatar

ellis does something good. first positive moment of the game. and you know, capuano has to stay out there. he absolutely has to.

August 28, 2012 6:48 pm

avatar

you guys do realize that what’s bad for the dodgers is good for the thread. the lamest of the lame brings out the most comments. so there’s that.

August 28, 2012 6:49 pm

avatar

 @Dabigjh  @Howard Cole I know the Guggenheimers don’t think there’s a $ ceiling, but aren’t they still paying Jones and Manny yet.?..say nothing of Uribe and other tremendous wastes of $

August 28, 2012 6:49 pm

 @Howard Cole Speaking of which , where is larry doby?

August 28, 2012 6:49 pm

 @Howard Cole
 that sports talk radio broadcasters’ credo. 

August 28, 2012 6:49 pm

avatar

 @wesparkerinia  @Howard Cole i think they are bot off the books this season

August 28, 2012 6:50 pm

avatar

well you guys must face the music here I am going elsewhere for it.

August 28, 2012 6:50 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  So does the best of the best.  If this game was 8-0 Blue right now with Kemp, Ethier and Gonzo having hit home runs we’d be going crazy.

August 28, 2012 6:50 pm

avatar

 @Dabigjh  @Howard Cole so we got that going for us…which is nice

August 28, 2012 6:50 pm

avatar

 @Tom in San Mateo  @Howard Cole  We are killin’ it tonight.

August 28, 2012 6:50 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole way to find something positive. its entertainment right

August 28, 2012 6:50 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood there’s a scenario I cannot even fathom right now.

August 28, 2012 6:51 pm

avatar

@The Commish hanging out with terry I think.

August 28, 2012 6:51 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @DeathByYoungblood  The best thing would be for the Dodgers to score 3-4 runs right now and rile everybody up.  Remember the 16-15 game in the 90s?

August 28, 2012 6:51 pm

avatar

@Dabigjh don’t count on much more of that. I see a walk to adrian, I immediately think dp for ramirez.

August 28, 2012 6:52 pm

avatar

see

August 28, 2012 6:52 pm

avatar

 @wesparkerinia  @Howard Cole we will be fine. i like the players moving forward next year. We are out of the mcheapo era and will be rocking. not to mention kasten will rebuild our player development ranks the way he did for the braves and the nats

August 28, 2012 6:52 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood no. did they lose it?

August 28, 2012 6:52 pm

avatar

Han-Ram has never seen a pitch he doesn’t like.  He’s like Vladimir Guerrero was…

August 28, 2012 6:53 pm

avatar

oK….station to station ball….

August 28, 2012 6:53 pm

avatar

uh oh. rockies have us just where they want us.

August 28, 2012 6:53 pm

avatar

guadriple play?

August 28, 2012 6:53 pm

avatar

career .230 with bases loaded

August 28, 2012 6:54 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole sounds like an ice cream flavor

August 28, 2012 6:54 pm

avatar

they should squeeze:)

August 28, 2012 6:54 pm

avatar

Strikeout then a dp…

August 28, 2012 6:55 pm

avatar

or a dp then a strikeout

August 28, 2012 6:55 pm

avatar

tell me that isn’t just perfect.

August 28, 2012 6:55 pm

avatar

Yep, dp then a strikeout.

August 28, 2012 6:55 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole yeah right DM would never do that

August 28, 2012 6:56 pm

avatar

capuano will give it right back in a minute.

August 28, 2012 6:56 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole You’re just trying to upset me. I’m beyond numb.

August 28, 2012 6:57 pm

avatar

 @wesparkerinia  @Howard Cole or a cable package… lol

August 28, 2012 6:58 pm

avatar

se-friggin’-poncha

August 28, 2012 6:59 pm

avatar

It’s mid-fourth.  plenty of time.  in the meantime I’m looking for a new avatar for Howard for his new handle:  Chick Little

August 28, 2012 7:01 pm

avatar

that is, Chicken Little

August 28, 2012 7:01 pm

avatar

@The Commish I’m really not trying to upset you. but things are not good right now. this is actually the highlight of my day, if you can believe that.

August 28, 2012 7:01 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @The I can. It’s mine too.

August 28, 2012 7:02 pm

avatar

I knew this was gonna happen. they couldn’t hit for him, but he’s going to make it impossible for don to leave him in. fucker!

August 28, 2012 7:03 pm

avatar

I say 12-5 Rocks by the 8th…

August 28, 2012 7:03 pm

avatar

did I mention I was pissed

August 28, 2012 7:03 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  You?  Nah…

August 28, 2012 7:03 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood no way the dodgers have 5

August 28, 2012 7:03 pm

avatar

the only way caps can get an easy out right now.

August 28, 2012 7:04 pm

avatar

bunting makes sense when you’re in front

August 28, 2012 7:04 pm

avatar

I think a trip from Honeygoltz would be appropriate.  hahahaha

August 28, 2012 7:04 pm

avatar

and you actually move someone within 90 feet of hone

August 28, 2012 7:05 pm

avatar

ellis will probably drop the play at the plate.

August 28, 2012 7:05 pm

avatar

this is just so much fun.

August 28, 2012 7:06 pm

avatar

playing the infield in just gives it away at this point…christ, you still give up a run and don’t get an out

August 28, 2012 7:06 pm

avatar

Make it stop… KHAAAAAAN!

August 28, 2012 7:07 pm

avatar

 @DeathByYoungblood COSTANZA!!!!!!!!!!

August 28, 2012 7:07 pm

avatar

Anybody warming up, anybody?

August 28, 2012 7:08 pm

avatar

@The Commish @DeathByYoungblood “by mennen.’

August 28, 2012 7:08 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia the prevent defense prevents you from winning.

August 28, 2012 7:08 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @The  @DeathByYoungblood I want detalis, and I want them now!

August 28, 2012 7:09 pm

avatar

@The Commish why bother. they used the whole pen sunday, used half of it yesterday and have blanton tomorrow. he has to get some freaking outs!

August 28, 2012 7:09 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @The yeah, but, ya see, he’s not getting outs.

August 28, 2012 7:10 pm

avatar

 @The Commish  @Howard Cole  @The it’s called taking one for the team….this is so lame

August 28, 2012 7:11 pm

avatar

@The Commish when does he get outs?

August 28, 2012 7:12 pm

avatar

the Rockies’ lineup….who are these guys?….why are they kickin’ Dodgers’ asses?

August 28, 2012 7:12 pm

avatar

Please, spare me the collective chant, “Dodgers Suck!”  I hate that chant and I got the feeling you guys are about to bust out with it all together.

August 28, 2012 7:12 pm

avatar

Howard – Please get me a “Hello, Kitty” bag, OK?

August 28, 2012 7:13 pm

avatar

 @Tom in San Mateo they don’t suck….they blow

August 28, 2012 7:13 pm

avatar

Thought I would say hey to all. took a break from slittling my wrists……

August 28, 2012 7:14 pm

avatar

 @wesparkerinia
 :)

August 28, 2012 7:14 pm

avatar

Mark Ellis just seems like an instant out to me.  I know he’s hitting .260, but I think it’s .095 when I watch  him.

August 28, 2012 7:14 pm

avatar

 @jondidier nice.

August 28, 2012 7:14 pm

avatar

the first “that’ll get down” of the series. I guess they haven’t gotten that many down.

August 28, 2012 7:15 pm

avatar

that was a big piece of WTF, that’s Rivera, not Pierre

August 28, 2012 7:17 pm

avatar

@jondidier I got blood all over my keyboard.

August 28, 2012 7:17 pm

avatar

C’mon Ned…just DFA Rivera,Uribe, and Kennedy

August 28, 2012 7:18 pm

avatar

that was lame even for the dodgers. incomprehensibly so.

August 28, 2012 7:18 pm

avatar

TOOTBLAN

August 28, 2012 7:19 pm

avatar

he’s waited this long, they all stay. rosters expand in a few days. course, it’s not like these games are important or anything.

August 28, 2012 7:19 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole as my buddy Larry David would say, pret-tay, pret-tay , pret-tay bad.

August 28, 2012 7:19 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia we need a new term for that bad of a play.

August 28, 2012 7:19 pm

avatar

so if he accomplishes it, this’ll be his first 1, 2, 3 inning, won’t i? of the month I mean.

August 28, 2012 7:23 pm

avatar

it’s only the 5th inning….there must be some paint drying somewhere

August 28, 2012 7:23 pm

avatar

 @wesparkerinia
 or maybe a lawn out front

August 28, 2012 7:23 pm

avatar

on the bright side, the main squeeze just got home!

August 28, 2012 7:24 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole Hey, c’mon that was a solid 5 innings. heh, heh.

August 28, 2012 7:24 pm

avatar

Dodgers are not a fundamentally sound team….can’t just throw $ at this pile. I still think they gotta lose Ned

August 28, 2012 7:25 pm

avatar

So, obviously we still need another arm.  I would think they’re putting in claims on half the starters out there (like Vargas), but I doubt they’ll get the help they need this year.

August 28, 2012 7:25 pm

avatar

 @DeathByYoungblood they need to win 2 out of 3 the rest of the way and they’re dropping 3 in a row….gotta beat COL, AZ , and SF…they’re not doing that….I know. DUH

August 28, 2012 7:27 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood another two or three more losses in a row, and they might just stop trying. but I can’t think of a guy out there that would make much of a difference right now….unless he can hit too:)

August 28, 2012 7:27 pm

avatar

nice inning guys.

August 28, 2012 7:28 pm

avatar

Hey, that Adrien Gonzalez has the Loney stroke to second base.

August 28, 2012 7:28 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia they actually were for awhile this year. and that was with gordon making errors all over the place. I don’t know what happened exactly.

August 28, 2012 7:28 pm

avatar

Nice swing ‘Dre

August 28, 2012 7:29 pm

avatar

10th asisst for LeMahieu

August 28, 2012 7:30 pm

avatar

I was just watching the Red Sox – Angels…Loney just grounded out to second base – seriously, Commish.

August 28, 2012 7:30 pm

avatar

I just got one of those emails that from livefyre with updates to the thread. i hit reply and told it to fuck off.

August 28, 2012 7:30 pm

avatar

 @Johnny Dodger F’in beautiful.

August 28, 2012 7:31 pm

avatar

@Johnny Dodger classic.

August 28, 2012 7:32 pm

avatar

by the way, commish, I’ll bet the house, the car, and any freaking body part you want that gonzalez will not turn out to be capuano. you’re going to love him. this year is shot, but next year and for the next few years you’re going to love him. best player on the team, amongh the position players.

August 28, 2012 7:34 pm

avatar

Matt Kemp left today’s game with a right knee contusion. Taken for precautionary x-rays on his jaw. No concussion-like symptoms.

August 28, 2012 7:35 pm

avatar

not to jinx it, but caps is actually doing his job now. he needs this inning and one more, unless they have to hit for him. I’ve lost track of the lineup. can you blame me.

August 28, 2012 7:35 pm

avatar

@wesparkerinia in other words, acl, out for 18 months.

August 28, 2012 7:36 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole he’s not gonna hurt his arm at that speed…leave him in…I see no rally in this group

August 28, 2012 7:36 pm

avatar

least you guys got 2 so far against the Rocks.  We got only 1 against the Astros.   bottom nine, with Houston threatening big time

August 28, 2012 7:37 pm

avatar

bottom 8.  oop

August 28, 2012 7:37 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @wesparkerinia 40-40 is safe again

August 28, 2012 7:37 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole What kinda car? You can keep the body parts.

August 28, 2012 7:38 pm

avatar

 @wesparkerinia i agree ned has to go. that being said i am very happy to have gonzo and crawford on the team. i said it 100 times after the hanley/ vict trades that it takes a few weeks for players to play together and mesh which is one of the reasons for ST. After hanley and V played for a couple weeks they went on the road and won a bunch. Now we have the same type of thing going on. Problem is. …is there time

August 28, 2012 7:39 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole
 this year is shot?  oh, man, get out of my foxhole

August 28, 2012 7:39 pm

avatar

Looks like something happened to Kemp!

August 28, 2012 7:40 pm

avatar

they’ll hit for caps. absolutely. course, it’ll be uribe.

August 28, 2012 7:40 pm

avatar

just showed replay of Kemp on COL….major ouch

August 28, 2012 7:40 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood kemp who?

August 28, 2012 7:41 pm

avatar

astros score on wild pitch.  2 – 1 Houston. 

August 28, 2012 7:41 pm

avatar

who’s the Astros’ closer?

August 28, 2012 7:42 pm

avatar

 @wesparkerinia
 I don’t know either. 

August 28, 2012 7:42 pm

avatar

 @wesparkerinia Just the thud. Oucho me mucho.

August 28, 2012 7:43 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @wesparkerinia the underachievers came out in true form. i never expected much this season with the team in limbo. it is now time to move forward. they made a couple good plays for next season with more work to be done

August 28, 2012 7:44 pm

 @The Commish  @wesparkerinia
 Oucho me mucho.  crackin up

dodgers outscored 18-2 in the series with blanton tomorrow. classic stuff, men.

@Johnny Dodger I want the angels to lose so I’ll just root for a walk.

August 28, 2012 8:08 pm

NOW loney gets the hit with the bases loaded.

August 28, 2012 8:09 pm

Yeah, no GIDP this time. @Howard Cole

@Johnny Dodger i don’t know why but if the angels stink worse than the dodgers, I take comfort in that.

@Tom in San Mateo check his beard for foreign substances right now.

August 28, 2012 8:15 pm

Interesting that this is a Rockies team decimated by injuries and who shouldn’t have a chance against the new and powerful Dodgers.

August 28, 2012 8:16 pm

avatar

four runs. piece of cake.

August 28, 2012 8:17 pm

avatar

they really do tease us, don’t they. probably score four to tie, then lose in the bottom half.

August 28, 2012 8:19 pm

G’s win.

 @Howard Cole I just might take a drive to Grass Valley, visit the Empire Mine and miss the whole game.
It’s getting depressing.

August 28, 2012 11:18 pm

ok here starts a 32 game win streak….

August 29, 2012 12:03 pm

I don’t know if that kind of optimism is gonna be welcome here:)

August 29, 2012 12:14 pm

dodgers see eight pitches. yeah baby!

August 29, 2012 12:14 pm

oh wait, check me, dodgers saw NINE pitches in the first. yippee!!

August 29, 2012 12:16 pm

avatar

I need to go back to work, but today’s question:  How many Blanton’s does it take to screw in a light-bulb? (and yes, the new spirally longer life ones)Discuss among yourselves… 

August 29, 2012 12:18 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood hey, the guy had a no-hitter going through one batter. leave him alone. he’s going to be the world series and regular season mvp.

August 29, 2012 12:18 pm

 @Howard Cole  @DeathByYoungblood

@Johnny Dodger I’ve been there!! my cousin lives in grass valley, and I’ve been to that mine. wild stuff. and nevada city is nice too.

August 29, 2012 12:20 pm

avatar

@Johnny Dodger but wait to see how the game goes first, huh? they got out of the first inning. that’s got to be a good sign right? they haven’t done that in a week.

August 29, 2012 12:21 pm

avatar

An inning has gone by and the Rockies don’t have any runs?

August 29, 2012 12:25 pm

avatar

yes, but the dodgers have negative runs.

August 29, 2012 12:27 pm

avatar

Pomeranz’ ERA is a run lower at Coors field than on the road.

August 29, 2012 12:28 pm

ethier whiffs against the lefty? no way.

August 29, 2012 12:29 pm

@DeathByYoungblood yeah, so what’s your point?:)

August 29, 2012 12:30 pm

I’m gonna pretend this is the superbowl, and just watch for the commercials.

@Johnny Dodger so do I, for much less money

August 29, 2012 12:34 pm

avatar

Dodgers need a pine tar incident. Anything to fire things up.

August 29, 2012 12:43 pm

avatar

uh oh. two on no outs. I’m worried.

August 29, 2012 12:46 pm

ok guys, honestly, can blanton go five and get a win? or god forbid, six? seven?

August 29, 2012 12:56 pm

they don’t need kemp obviously.

August 29, 2012 12:56 pm

 @Howard Cole
 if we all say yes he can yes he can…

August 29, 2012 12:57 pm

Trivia question.  How many times this season have the Dodgers scored at least 6 runs in an inning?

August 29, 2012 12:57 pm

avatar

Well, I’ve got things to do before the close of business, Howard, so I’ll say adios.
One reason I don’t care for day games during the week.
Surely 6 runs will do it, right?

August 29, 2012 12:58 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood 0

August 29, 2012 1:02 pm

avatar

@Johnny Dodger ya think? I don’t know if it is. by the way, i didn’t realize till just now that your empire mine post was yesterday. scroll down and check out my response.

August 29, 2012 1:03 pm

avatar

Trivia answer:  The Dodgers six run third inning ties the club’s largest inning of the year (Last time: June 10 vs. SEA).

August 29, 2012 1:03 pm

avatar

ahh. thanks. did they win?

August 29, 2012 1:03 pm

avatar

Blanton tossed 4 shutout innings in Miami, remember, and then gave up 4 in the 5th. Just sayin.

August 29, 2012 1:06 pm

 @Howard Cole  Of course they did – it was by Bday:

did everyone split just because we scored six runs?

August 29, 2012 1:20 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole
 what we cant nap during the game?

August 29, 2012 1:21 pm

avatar

how come they dont have to touch second for the out?

August 29, 2012 1:26 pm

avatar

@rotarandy which play? i missed it.

August 29, 2012 1:27 pm

avatar

@rotarandy I nap after.

August 29, 2012 1:27 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @rotarandy
 the failed dp the one at second  he was straddling the bag.

August 29, 2012 1:28 pm

avatar

@rotarandy oh, umps give you that about 99% of the time. but there were a few the dodgers did like that a couple weeks ago where they called the runner safe.

August 29, 2012 1:31 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @rotarandy
 seems odd that you dont need to tag or touch base only the ball needs to beat you there.. cant do that at home plate…

August 29, 2012 1:38 pm

avatar

@rotarandy the rule is clear. you do have to touch the base, but it’s just one of those odd things. that’s why it’s so shocking when an up calls a runner safe there. you’re just so used to the automatic out. the argument is, the ball beats the runner, you don’t want to get the infielder hurt unnecesarily, so you give him some leeway.

August 29, 2012 1:44 pm

avatar

Did we win yet?

August 29, 2012 1:45 pm

avatar

blanton went five and that’s a miracle. let’s see what else he can do.

August 29, 2012 1:46 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  I prayed for a miracle…

August 29, 2012 1:51 pm

avatar

@DeathByYoungblood well honestly, not being sarcastic, he has been a good second half pitcher. consistently he has. and he does throw strikes. baseball is such a weird game, maybe he’s fine now. I mean look at how bills turned it around completely. this is what most pitchers do. up down up down up down. they just need a month of up.

August 29, 2012 1:54 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole At work, just heard about it. (1:50pm). Remember, “no safe is lead at this ballpark.”

August 29, 2012 1:54 pm

avatar

bases full and no outs. normally this would worry me.

August 29, 2012 2:15 pm

avatar

oy

August 29, 2012 2:17 pm

avatar

31 wins to go keep the streak alive think blue..

August 29, 2012 2:18 pm

avatar

@rotarandy so you’re saying, they win the rest of their games, win the division and lose to open the playoffs? I’d take it.

August 29, 2012 2:21 pm

avatar

this was my preseason prediction for aj ellis: .260, 15 and 60.

he’s currently at .283, 11 and 41. I got a chance.

August 29, 2012 2:23 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  @rotarandy
 we will reset the goals at the proper time..

August 29, 2012 2:23 pm

avatar

Is everybody happy here today?  I hope so.  Looks like the guys in blue gonna win one today.

August 29, 2012 2:25 pm

avatar

@Tom in San Mateo I admit. I am happy today. thank you, kind sir.

August 29, 2012 2:27 pm

avatar

 @Howard Cole  I need to see that prediction in print.  Since he never showed any power in the minors, I was praying he’d play 135 games healthy and hit 7-8 while batting .250.

August 29, 2012 2:31 pm

August 29, 2012 2:37 pm

avatar

c’mon. who thinks the dodgers are going to make this easy? anyone?

August 29, 2012 2:40 pm

avatar

prediction: dodgers win 10-9.

August 29, 2012 2:48 pm

avatar

maybe.

August 29, 2012 2:48 pm

avatar

i’m pissed

August 29, 2012 2:54 pm

avatar

@rotarandy glad to see some emotion out of ya. they really really do stink. I mean, if they lose this game, the season is 100% over. 100% over. there is no coming back from a colorado sweep and blowing a 9 run lead. maybe the get some insurance runs here. maybe.

August 29, 2012 2:55 pm

avatar

A.J. Ellis can still tie record for slams in a game. Tony Cloninger was the first to do it.

August 29, 2012 2:57 pm

avatar

It’s easier Kenley with a clutch save or the end of the Dodger world as we know it.

August 29, 2012 3:00 pm

avatar

WTF???  This is ridiculous.

August 29, 2012 3:06 pm

avatar

what, you’re suprised?

August 29, 2012 3:07 pm

avatar

but the worst they can lose is 14-10.

August 29, 2012 3:07 pm

avatar

whew

August 29, 2012 3:08 pm

avatar

I told you. piece of cake.

August 29, 2012 3:08 pm

avatar

till the next time dodger fans…

August 29, 2012 3:24 pm

avatar

dang, what happened.  6 – 0 and I leave to go shopping and come back and final is 10 to 8, D’s win.  that would have been fun to see scroll out in the thread in real-timie.  but alls well that ends.well.

August 29, 2012 3:38 pm

Hey Blanton actually pitched good today. Day games only for him!
