There's been several games this year when no one has been able to start up a game thread.  Instead of there being no discussion, or the discussion filtering over to the main season thread, I thought I'd start this emergency game thread.  Basically, for every time there's no game thread up for a particular game, and it's been one hour past the start of the game, me or another moderator will unlock this thread and we can use this as a substitute.  

Let's do it.

GO DODGERS!!

Why is Crawford getting all the starts in left. He is inferior to Ethier defensively. Granted, neither has been lighting it up at the plate.

I have to shake my head at this decision. I know Andre has sucked this year but Carl has sucked even more and like you said his defense and arm are lacking.

Is there anything Carl Crawford does well, at this point, on a baseball field?

One - he runs the bases well

True.  Although even that's diminished...

Greinke has now been beaten by the Royals, Angels, & Brewers all former teams. Could it be a psychological block?

I will throw stuff at my monitor if this happens, when we have Alex, Arby, & Barney in the minors.


Carlos Triunfel is not starting for @ABQTopes tonight. If he’s the one who gets the call if Hanley goes on DL, someone is asleep at wheel— Eric Stephen (@truebluela) August 10, 2014

Complete agreement.  These last two games show how much offensive help we need.  Triunfel has shown neither the ability to hit and had one of the worst defensive spells this side of Turner's effort last night.  He has no role on this team.  Rojas can catch the ball, so get us another shortstop who can hit.

How about our first come from behind after seven innings victory here?!

0-42 Now! Plus continued ineptitude vs rookies and bad pitchers. How will they fare vs the very best pitchers in the playoffs?
