    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.

  2. BlondiesJake Says:

    It’s just about game time and it’s another sparse crowd. The Mets lineup is getting some very audible cheers from the crowd.

  3. BlondiesJake Says:

    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.

  4. BlondiesJake Says:

    Tonight’s extremely useless fact of the game: Nancy Bea has been the organist at Dodger Stadium for the last 24 years.

  5. BlondiesJake Says:

    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.

    BJake: when you say “make a decision about Reyes” I assume you mean a decision about whether to shut him down until after the ASB, as opposed to a decision about whether to re-sign him, correct?

  7. BlondiesJake Says:

    tdfkabl, correct, a decision on whether to DL him or not.

  8. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    That’s now three excellent defensive plays already by the Dodgers infielders. Loney, Carroll and Furcal have all made great stops, all that’s left is for Uribe to flash the leather.

  9. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    Add one for Kuroda as well.

  10. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    So they give out free hot dogs in the press box around the 6th inning or so, but I need to eat something now. Should I go for nachos or a pretzel? I’ll go with the first response. Thanks!

  11. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    Great AB by Murphy, fouling off a bunch of pitches before managing to pull the ball to the right side to get Beltran to 3rd. OK, Bay, time to deliver again.

  12. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    Damn, Kuroda with another fabulous fielding play.

  13. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    Attaboy, Duda. They can’t make a play on that ball. Yupper Pupper, another two-out run for the Mets. And now a “Let’s Go Mets” cheer has come up from the stands on the 1st base side.

  14. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    A stats= that may be worth noting…The Mets are 33-18 when scoring 1st.

    Also, the Mets haven’t been three games over .500 since July 23 of last year after they beat, you guessed it, the Dodgers.

  15. BrooklynBill Says:

    Which one of the 50 people in the crowd is you?

  16. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    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.

  17. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    Alright Bay, another chance with Beltran on 3rd and less than two outs. Don’t give Kuroda a chance to rob you again.

  18. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    Ick

  19. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    Thank You, Kuroda!

  20. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    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.

  21. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    Irregardless of how Beltran scored, it was another two-out run for the Mets. It seemed like this team NEVER scored with two outs last season.

  22. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    Ask and ye shall receive. Thanks Tejada, for a huge two-run double.

  23. BrooklynBill Says:

    All these 2 out runs must be demoralizing to the opposing teams. Total back-breakers, gotta love it!

  24. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    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.

  25. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    OK, Niese, you caused this problem, starting with the unforgivable leadoff walk to Furcal, hitting .198 on the season, after your team gave you a 4-1 lead. You need to get out of it with the lead.

  26. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    That was a TERRIBLE call at 1st. And I’m not sure if you could see on SNY, but Niese was pretty pissed and Thole was trying to calm him down.

  27. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    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.

  28. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    Time for some stats that might make you feel more comfortable about this one-run lead in the 8th:

    The Mets are 36-6 when leading after 7.
    The Mets are 36-9 when scoring 4 or more runs.
    The Mets are 35-5 when they out hit their opponent.

  29. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    Including Furcal’s beautiful basket catch, that’s now six outstanding defensive plays by the Dodgers tonight.

  30. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    I’m not sure what the pitch was that Parnell threw to strike out Furcal. All I know is it had some funky little movement and was clocked at 90. NASTY!

  31. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    (My point being when you can throw strikes while hitting triple digits on the radar gun, then throw some sort of slider or change or whatever at 90, you are going to be awfully tough to hit)

  32. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    Willie Harris should’ve been on 3rd with one out. Who knows how the inning plays out but I’m worried the Mets are going to regret not tacking on an insurance run.

  33. BlondiesJake LIVE at Dodger Stadium Says:

    NEVER MIND! Thank you, Justin Turner.

    Btw, the “Let’s Go Mets” cheers now sound like “LET’S GO METS!” and are drowing out the booing from the Dodgers fans.

    Bay still sucks.

  35. JoMama's A Clown Says:

    JoMama’s still a clown.
