Cardinals 7, Dodgers 0: Yeah, That’ll Happen

capuano_2013-05-24Chris Capuano gave up a couple of dingers, a solid-but-hardly-elite pitcher — Lance Lynn, in this case — shut down the constantly-struggling Dodger offense with ease, Matt Guerrier was lousy, and the Los Angeles defense made some fielding mistakes.

Congratulations, you’ve just seen the Dodger game to describe pretty much every other Dodger game.

Seriously though, it’s somehow worse than that. A.J. Ellis, when he wasn’t going 0-3 with two strikeouts, got steamrolled by Jon Jay on a play at the plate in the second inning. Matt Kemp, the subject of a wonderfully in-depth examination by Chad Moriyama today, also went 0-3 with two whiffs. Dee Gordon didn’t get a hit in either of his times up, extending a hitless streak of 27 plate appearances dating back to May 13. (He does have two walks and a hit by pitch in that time.) Adrian Gonzalez is on a streak nearly as bad, with his 0-3 giving him four singles and three walks in his last 36 times up.

Really, the only Dodger starter who can look back at tonight without some sort of shame is… you guessed it, Juan Uribe, who had a walk and a double. I think that really sums up the night pretty well right there.

Back at it tomorrow with Ted Lilly… sigh. I guess.

Kevin Kennedy tweeted that he say Stan Kasten walk up to Ken Rosenthal and saw then have a conversation. Said Stan looked animated ad did most the talking while Ken looked like a little boy taking a verbal whipping haha

Does anyone know where you can watch the Fox Dodger game of the week on the internet, besides MLB.TV?  Our local Fox affiliate has the Braves/Mets game on Direct TV.

SVS goes yard again today, and the Dodgers win, in spite of Ted Lilly on the mound.  Then SVS has to play every day, rotating with the corner outfielders and AGon.  It's a whole new Mattingly.

Has anyone heard when Corey Seager will be returning to Great lakes?

Dee's had a massive amount of bad luck and has sucked when it comes to strikeouts.

BABIP and Line Drive % and Strikeout %

2011 - 345 on 22.9 with 11.6%

2012 - 281 on 20.5 with 18.8%

2013 - 200 on 25.7 with 23.1%

He's now had about a full season of playing time.  628 PAs 160 games 250/295/309 with 30 errors.

Yeah, he's not a major league player and probably wont ever be. But he's still a better alternative than going with Sellers.

Maybe Ken will discuss that between innings

Stan the man

Maybe he's subbing for Ethier because AGon and Crawford are playing well

@JorbinM (Bat Flip Apologist) @Dodgers' 7th Ring  Huh... so *that's* what you guys were yammering on about the other day: a NEW series only on Netflix. I wondered why you all were making such a big deal about a series on Netflix. This is a weird distribution model. Will there be commercial breaks, do you think?
