CUBS/DODGERS GAME 1 REVIEW
It’s official: Dick Stockton’s fastball is way gone. His first words of the telecast: “To say there is a lot at stake would be an understudy.” Ok then.
Manny Ramirez hits into a double play to end the first. I don’t think I loathe a player more than him, as great as he is. Why? Well, here is a nice summary.
Dick’s at it again: “Mark DeRosa…on a very high-sky pop-up.”
Back to Manny: Dempster throws two somewhat high and inside pitches to start his 2nd at-bat. I wouldn’t call them “buzzing” him, but a bit inside. After the second pitch, Manny takes almost a minute to get back in the box for the next pitch. Complete turd.
I love Frank Caliendo. At least I did. I was not at all impressed with the first season of “Frank TV”. The promos for season 2 are running full steam, and he is still doing George Bush. Dude–give it up! Yay–you do a good impression of him. Move on.
Manny’s up again. Seriously–who wears a mouthpiece in baseball?
Dempster didn’t deserve to get out of that inning. You can’t walk 7 batters and expect to keep them scoreless. Not a good time to revert to the old Dempster.
I know Lowe is tough, but Soriano looked mindless up there tonight.
And to cap off the pain, Greg Maddux comes in for the 9th. And it’s already uh-oh time.
