Quick update, which isn’t really an update…According to Mets beat writers who were in Terry Collins office before the game, the team will likely make a decision on Jose Reyes in the next couple of days.
Before they announce the Dodgers starting lineup (and after every win) they play Randy Newman’s “I Love LA.” It’s so cheesy and so perfect for this fake city. And yes, the venom is flowing early tonight.
Funny scene as the Dodgers took the field…Like most teams, LA has little kids run out to “their position” and get a ball signed by the big leaguer at that spot. The kid running to right field sprinted out and was just standing in medium right, while Andre Ethier was gesturing from about 50 feet away, trying to get the kid’s attention. The kid then ran over, reared back and fired his baseball to Ethier from about 10 feet away, causing Ethier to jump back and then leap to catch it as the crowd roared in laughter.
Since no responses, I went off the board for the Doyer Fries, which are french fries with nacho cheese, chili, tomatoes, onions and jalapenos. My wife is NOT going to be happy when I come home after the game.
When you’re bad like the Dodgers are, innings like the 6th happen, including Velez’ awful overthrow and Kuroda’s wild pitch to give the Mets a gift run. It would be nice if the boys could tack on a few more.
Yep. And to answer your earlier question, I’m in the press box tonight, but will be in the second deck, a few sections to the right of home plate as you look from the centerfield camera, tomorrow night.
On his way to the dugout after Loney’s groundout ended the inning, Niese looked once, twice, three, four times at the 1B umpire. I understand why he’s pissed, but he should be more pissed at himself, walking Furcal to get the whole mess started.
