Not this time, Hawpe!!! (12-7 without Manny)

27 May

The Dodgers almost blew a 5-run lead in the bottom of the ninth inning today at Coors Field.

Closer Jon Broxton really struggled, but eventually got No. 1 Dodger Killer Brad Hawpe to ground out to the end the game.


I think manager Joe Torre, if he had to do it over again, would have started the inning with Brox rather than bring him in with runners on base.

Now it’s on to Chicago, where I have a sneaking suspicion the Dodgers will get swept by the Cubs. I think it’s gonna be a long four days for the Dodgers.

    Oh the pessimism in your writing…Do not be infringing on the Cub fans right to be pessimistic. The Cubs are in disarray, seems half the roster was in Des Moines only a few days ago. Look for the Red-Hot Dodgers to take at least three of the four games.

      Dodgers got lucky in the series opener. Cubs will win the next three — or else Big Z will beat up Torre!
