    We got really TWO misplayed ball by that posing little faggot Pagan, and did abolutely nothing with them. I don't understand Mattingly's approach to things in this game in particular. I initially though he had some nice balls taking out that HR Derby pitcher Capuano when he did, and it worked out great with Wright.. But when the next inning started, and he wa STILL on the mound, I thought "no no, why do you push it so far Donnie"? There is enough in the BP to put someone else out there-there's no tomorrow, Donnie. Get someone else out there. Paco, Choate, Tolleson, Guerrier, Beli, Wall, Fife (who I would rather seen start than Capuano, but that's just me). That was a bush pitch to Posey....don't let him beat you"...I guess Capuano didn't get the memo with that fucking meatball he throws. better he just pitched around the fuck. walk him-ht him...but a belt high "heater" in his zone??? At least I didn't have to listen to Vinny after it; the Buster sack licking is pathetic by Vin. At least the Giant announcers just say what they have to, and don't rub your nose in it all fucking night long.
    And then Wright let it all come apart.
    To lose actually on an error, and the biggest stupid fucking asshole play by a verteran with Ellis' draw dropping idiocy, is just fucking sad.
    What a time for Kemp to start a new slump, too. Three Ks. Wow. No matter what a guy does before, you have to come through at least once for the team in the 'do or die' game of the season. WTF is it all about, anyway? I don't think it's ever going to happen...we jut don't have the heart.
    It all boils down to another fucking loser year, not in it again, pathetically hoping for a better season 6/7 months away to start, a tease team that invariably let it's fans down in the end....just like always. I guess Magic will have to wait like all of us have. The Brooklyn Bridesmaids curse. Let Ned handle it. He'll fix everything because he got a lot of money now to spend, right?
    It's like the poem's last line, basically, in the end...
    "MIghty Casey had struck out".
    Well...GO...uh Reds..no- Texas...no, Nats. Ah...who gives a fuck?

    I know Romo was paying close attention to Dee, but DBB had to run him early in the count and not try to just sac... he needed to go to 2B so Ellis could have then bunted him over... Abreu's fly could have scored him, even though it was kind of shallow...

    this season has been good, and its amazing we were the last team to get eliminated, but when you see teams like the A's and O's making the playoff and teams like us, the Anals, Rays, Redsox out, you fully understand that this is 9 guys pushing together and that you need the 9 guys doing their part...

    I really wish I cared about this less. People always argue about being a "real sports fan", I'd give my leg to not be one. Just fucking walk around depressed for days every year.

    The fucked up thing about that scenario is that Dee was in the dugout when AJ was trying to bunt him over. If the plan was to play small-ball for the tying run, Dee should have been in for Ethier right away.

    exactly... actually, Dee should have been running for Rivera... with Pagan's missed catch he could have scored...

    Hang over from this one. That game COULD have been one of the best games in Dodger history.

    He didn't want to use Dee for Ethier until he had too. That game could've easily went extra innings(and we were trying to tie it to go extras) and you want Ethier in there still if possible both for defense and another plate appearance. Why use Dee to get to 2nd on a sac bunt? Ethier isn't a slow runner. I think the sac-bunt not being laid down was the worst part.

    AND, it totally set us up to win today and tie the standings up. The Reds have a good shot at a win and we had CK going against the cheater Vogelsong.

    If Kemp and his huge BA vs. Lefties just showed up....what if.

    we can second guess all we want
    but fordie is right
    we didn't execute
    and we can call the cardinals lucky
    but the bottom line -- no matter how you slice it -- is they won more games than us

    and yeah, that makes me sick to my stomach

    I can't get over Kemp going 0-3 against Zitto. A player struggling in a big game against a pitcher he always struggles against is one thing. To choke against a pitcher you've always hit against is just that...choking under pressure. Even Ethier sacked up and got a hit against the lefty Afeldt. All along this team has been on Kemps back and that's not a good thing. What Kemp does dictates what the team does. That's not his fault, this team has to be able to move on when he sucks, but having him batting 3rd and sucking is really hard to overcome. It seemed the team set him up to be hero alot yesterday. Kemp has really pissed me off this time.

    LOL, you know I've been thinking the same thing all night. CK is going to go out there for blood I'd bet. He is going to pitch like a bad MoFo I think. A perfect game is totally doable today, I almost expect at least a CG-SO or better.
