Wouldn't surprise me if Abreu keeps it up and turns out being a pretty decent pick-up by this team. I've read several articles about him and his last days/situation with the Angels and he definitely is motivated and feels like he still has something to prove.

I think he'll be just fine with the Dodgers. He's still a quality hitter that can hit around the .270-.280 clip give or take. What makes him such a good hitter is he does not get cheated at the plate and works the pitcher. You'll see Abreu get into a lot of 2-2 / 3-2 counts. Plus it gives us another left handed bat to give us more balance. He was brought in to be a bench bat and sometimes starter but I will not be shocked if he becomes our everyday LF for the rest of the season.

Nice asswhooping of the Giants to get back on track. Hope Kershaw gets another W tonight

Dodgers take the series with the Giants. Could have easily been a sweep but we just couldn't take advantage of runners in scoring position in that second game.. That's baseball for you though.

We've lost 4 series so far this season. Milwaukee, Colorado, and Chicago on the road. Atlanta was the only team we lost to at home.

Freakin Bullpen its so shaky

Ethier and Loney picked it up with Kemp struggling a little bit

Glad we signed Aaron Miles to a minor league contract, I liked him

Best record in baseball with room for improvement on this roster.

Give me a power hitting 3B or 1B, plus another arm in the bullpen and this team will be legit.

Matt Kemp vs Josh Hamilton...

Kemp has slowed down dramatically. Hamilton is on a seemingly historic tear lately. Just flat out unreal.

Just swept the champs Lol amazing

Adam Kennedy is surprisingly coming through. Bobby Abreu has been a bigger surprise. Loney has picked up the slack in Kemp's absense a little bit.

This team is so much fun to watch now. We just need one more bat

^ Abreu hasn't surprised me. He's been for the most part consistent throughout his career. He struggled a bit in his last times with the Angels, but then again, he wasn't getting consistent playing time really and I read several articles that he was unhappy about that and felt he could still play and prove something so when I heard the Dodgers got him and were gonna' give him a legit shot, I knew he'd be extra motivated and have a chip on his shoulder to prove he can still get the job done.

yo.

Vin Scully is the baseball Chick Hearn.

Does anyone know if they ever met?

That's awesome. Never seen them together like that. Were they buddies as well or just mutual respect or whatever?

The Dodgers really need to increase security.


LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A man who apparently caused a minor car collision in the Dodger Stadium parking lot Sunday night was pulled out of his car and assaulted, police said.

Police said the assault took place after the game sometime before 9 p.m. The man was pulled from his car by at least one suspect and suffered head and facial injuries, none of which were life threatening, police said.

The victim was taken to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center for treatment. A woman who was eight months pregnant was with the victim. She was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons.

Four people were detained for questioning, police said. However, it was unclear if any of them were facing charges.
