The Reds moving up has put the Marlins in 29th place and the White Sox in 30th. The Dodgers
next play the Marlins, but who knows what that means.

Yay, we played Miami (29th place) last night! And two of our best returned to
the lineup last night for the first time this year: Justin Turner and Logan Forsythe!
And we lost again! 4-2. As of this morning, the Dodgers have the longest streak
in MLB. We've lost 5 in a row. The longest winning streak is the Nationals with 4.
I know the Dodgers aren't doing well; worse than that, but the sports writers are
being very nasty. I mean, do we deserve headlines today like "The Dodgers Can't
Shake Sewer Stench?" That's just rubbing it in.

Beat those Yankees, Nationals!
Then the Dodgers visit you.

Fritz, I was just thinking of "Damn Yankees" and the fact that Washington was playing the Yankees in that movie.  (I know it was the Senators in that case, but Washington all the same.)

And Washington eventually wins!

The weather has postponed the Nats-Yankees game again. They'll make up when they meet again on 18 June.

Today's Dodger headlines:

CBS Sports:
"How Low Can the Dodgers Go?"

And from our own supportive Los Angeles Times:
"The Dodgers are a Traveling Dumpster Fire."

Our streak continues!  We lost our 6th game in a row. That's 9 out of the last 10.
We lost to Miami, and in so doing, Miami and the Dodgers now have the same record
and the Dodgers are now officially in last place in the National League West Division.

As a fan last year, this is the trouble:  We started off slow last year and kept getting better and
better and you'd think it was because we were playing great baseball with some great players.
Sports Illustrated even had a cover story asking "Best Team Ever?"  Then late in the season
we started losing. Big time. Record breaking. An 11 game losing streak and 20 games alone
in September! And there wasn't any explanation as to why this was happening. There was
no answer. The manager even asked in an after game interview for advice on what was going
on. "I'm open for suggestions," he answered one reporter.

Then you start wondering? Well, if we don't know why we're losing, do we know why we were winning.
The play-offs arrived and then the world series and, until Game 7, all that was forgotten. Now, we start
this season and we're losing again and recently the manager again said he doesn't know why we are
doing as badly as we are. He again said he was open for suggestions. Now, saying that again is something
I wouldn't want to hear. What does your team think when you say that, because if you don't know why
you're losing, you're going to wonder why you win and then doesn't an "it doesn't matter" feeling set in?
You just can't say that. Especially the manager.

The Dodgers not only lose a lot lately, but they do it in gut wrenching fashion.
[...] etc.

So, yes, we lost last night, but in the 6th inning we were down 4 runs and managed to come back and tie the game.
Only for Miami to get a home run and we lost 7-6.

Well, see you on Friday then, Fritz!  The Nationals should be well-rested for us. Some post-season revenge
in the air from last year. We don't even get the usual Thursday off day this week.   So...be gentle.       :-X

The way the rain is just going on and on here, I'll be astonished if the Dodgers game isn't postponed.

This morning the FC St. Pauli reminded me of why they are one of my favourite football teams (OK, soccer, whatever):

Well, just when we were on a winning streak too!  We won a game last night! 7-0!
I looked at the current weather forecast and it looks like tomorrow a lot of rain, too!
And 67° today; by Sunday 84°!

Not unexpectedly, rain has postponed the Dodgers game.
