Settling the Score: Friday’s results

Yasiel who? Juan Uribe was the story for the Dodgers last night, as he drove in seven runs in a 10-2 win over the Giants. Yes, seven of them.

Uribe went 3-for-5 on the night and finished a single short of the cycle. The 33-year-old had a two-run double in the second inning, a bases-clearing triple in the third inning, and a two-run homer in the seventh. He had one final chance at the cycle in the ninth inning, but struck out swinging against Jake Dunning. His seven RBI matched a career-high from June 19, 2004 as a member of the White Sox.

After compiling a lousy .199/.262/.289 batting line over the first two seasons of his three-year, $21 million deal with the Dodgers, Uribe is batting .280/.355/.455 with five home runs and 27 RBI through 187 plate appearances this season. Ned Colletti is vindicated.

    Mets-Brewers game was weird as hell and I loved the uniforms that the Brewers were wearing

    Jim Johnson… (Facepalm)

      When you see how quickly a closer can go from lights out to green light for the hitter it makes me appreciate the consistency of what Mariano Rivera brings to the mound year after year.

      Not a good season for Johnson’s.

      • Old Gator - Jul 6, 2013 at 10:10 AM

        Ve come back and ve cut off your johnson!

        Jacob Turner got his whittled down to size a bit by the Cardinals last night (the Feesh broadcasters have been referring to the larval triumverate as the “young guns,” and I don’t agree with Sigmund LaPierre that sometimes a good gun is just a good gun). It wasn’t a full-blown debacle like the piece of shrapnel that dephallused Jake Barns and it wasn’t as much of a mess as El Topo’s castration of the Rabbit Master, but it still wasn’t fun to watch. Will Turner be back on top by his next start? Isn’t it pretty to think so.

        The Feesh offense also lost tumescence against Jake Westbrook, speaking of the two Jakes, but the boolpen remained proudly erect against the Cardinals lineup the rest of the way. Tweeter went deep in the second.

        Big concern: the Iron Giant doesn’t seem to know how to make things happen at the plate anymore, and Marcell Ozuna couldn’t get to first base either. Both are failing to perform. And yet, somehow, it’s still looking like a long season.

        Who knew that Valdespin’s HBPiD was an omen… very bad year for Johnsons, Dickeys and Wangs.

      O’s can’t win every 1-run game forever.

      You were up going in to the 9th and then my buddy texted me great obscenities regarding JJ. Tied up; then a walkoff. That hurts. I had to return the favor and console him this time…which turned into him telling me I told you so about V-Mart. lol Anyway, I was rooting for you. Go, O’s!

      • historiophiliac - Jul 6, 2013 at 12:16 PM

        Well, good morning, thumb harpy. I’m getting concerned you’re going to develop carpal tunnel syndrome if you keep this up. Go easy, boy.

    Good to see the Yankees with the come from behind win. Probably more impressive was Nova’s outstanding performance and to a lesser degree was that was Wells 3rd consecutive game with 2 hits.

  4. mungman69 - Jul 6, 2013 at 11:36 AM

    The way that the Braves are playing it will only be a matter of time till they catch the Nationals.

    Contrary to the prognostications of a certain Trolly McTrollerson, Porcello had a fine showing last night. Heck, the team had a fine showing — and Inge 2.0 made no errors. As a bonus, you could’ve made it through the whole game without knowing that Joe West was umpiring, he was so low key. Cleveland fans did a nice wave in the 8th, which was fun. I hope Craig enjoys such hilarity while at the game today. Go ahead, Craig; you can do it “ironically.”

    It’s the Return of Sanchez, people! Go, Tigers! Grrrrrrr!!!!!!!

      Porcini was good. Who knew it was a blue moon?

      Sincerely, TMcT

    • unclemosesgreen - Jul 6, 2013 at 1:13 PM

      I cracked the DaVinci Code on Porcini. Vs. Cleveland – 3 GS, 19 IP, 1.42 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 19/6 K/BB.

      Vs. everyone else: 13 GS, 74.1 IP, 5.70 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, 55/13 K/BB

      • historiophiliac - Jul 6, 2013 at 1:14 PM

        Mmmm, DaVinci.

      • unclemosesgreen - Jul 6, 2013 at 1:16 PM

        Nothin much gets by you.

        P.S. I have thumb-immunity!!

      • historiophiliac - Jul 6, 2013 at 1:18 PM

        What? You haven’t joined the anti-HoF with me and OG? It’s an exclusive group…not really.

      • unclemosesgreen - Jul 6, 2013 at 1:20 PM

        I’ve been on my best behavior for like – days now.

      • historiophiliac - Jul 6, 2013 at 1:23 PM

        Boooo!!!!

        My little friend Psychodoughboy says I shouldn’t rise to your juvenile provocations.

    Awfully quiet on the Giants’ bandwagon. Wasn’t Uribe a Giant once? I seem to recall Uribe set to sign a free-agent contract with the Dodgers when the Giants stepped in to match it. Yet Uribe went ahead and signed with the Dodgers and Giants fans came on en-mass to say good riddance. Juan may go back to being ineffective/hurt/invisible, but he sure took out his frustrations on his old team.
