See Dee Run

(Will all of this crash your browser? Uh, possibly. Apologies if so. If it does, then add “your computer” to the long list of things that cannot keep up with Dee Gordon.)

See Dee score the first Dodger run:

See Dee start a double play with a backhand stab:


See Dee put down a lousy bunt but use his speed to essentially create a double:


See Dee steal third:

Sure, all of that masks the fact that the Dodgers lost again, with a solid one-run effort from Clayton Kershaw obscured by the usual lack of offense. (That’s now 35 times in which they’ve scored three runs or fewer.) Yes, the bullpen again did no favors, allowing two runs which proved to be the difference, though at least Mike MacDougal finally allowed a run that counts against his own ledger. And it’s true that the loss drops them to seven games under .500, just a game out of last place, and if they lose tomorrow’s matinee, it’ll be the first time they fall more than seven games underwater since July of 2006 – nearly five years.

All of the above is true, but who wants to talk about that? Dee Gordon‘s electricity is providing us with a reason to tune in each night. There’s plenty of time to talk about all the rest of it; for the moment, that’s good enough.
