We Took 2 out of 3 from the Phillies! Next: The Marlins!

We took 2 out of 3 from the Defending World Champions Phillies!

I was worry about the trip to Philadelphia. How would my Dodgers do? Can they win consistently without Manny? Would James Loney and Russell Martin start picking up the pace? Well, they did!. James Loney hit two homeruns in Philadelphia. Russell started hitting better. Casey Blake hit  his 7th home run. Not bad for a guy hitting 8!   Wolf “El Lobo” got his win against his old team. Billz has been pitching lights out although Jonathan Broxton could not save the win for him. Jonathan got the cheap win. I wish there was a way for Billz who only allowed 3 hits and 1 run in 7 innings to get the win but those are the rules.

On to Florida to play at ::looks for the new name of the stadium: Land Shark Stadium.  what is that story behind that name? The times for the 3 game series are: Friday 4:10 P.T., Saturday 3: P.T., Sunday 10:10 P.T.

At first I was “why the 3: P.T time? I went back to the Dodgers scheduled and it says

@ FLA

3:10 PM

KCAL

MLB.TV

Broadcast joined in progress

What is up with that?????????

Well, I learned that Saturday afternoons have been FOX’s exclusive territory for years – there’s a national blackout between the hours of 1pm and 4pm western time.  If any team wanted to start a game in the blackout period, they’d be unable to broadcast the game until the blackout ended -

So Saturday we start watching the game in what?  the 4th inning?   Oh and the reason for the early start?   A concert of some sort. Thanks a lot Marlins. 

.

In the meantime.. Good luck Dodgers!  Good Luck Stults!

You know, when your team is away and it isn’t on Fox, they should show the game in TV. It just isn’t right that they don’t.

Julia,
IT is going to be on TV but the game starts at 3:P.M. our time and the broadcast wont’ start until 4:P.M. So we get to listen to it on the radio and then we can turn on the TV to continue to watch it. It is insane

At least you get the Dodgers on the radio. When the Yankees are blacked out by Fox on Saturdays I can’t even listen on MLB. Soooo frustrating. Good luck with your series against the Marlins.

Jane,
Really, you can’t even listen to the MLB audio? I guess I should not complain too much if I can still listen to the audio. Thanks for the good wishes. Right back at you!

That’s the worst! And for a concert!? Lame. Black outs are terrible. Milwaukee blacks out all sorts of Chicago sports unless it’s on WGN. They only want you to watch Milwaukee sports and it’s blacked out on MLB.tv. Stephaniehttp://steponme.mlblogs.com

Stephanie,
The concert featured Stevie B. Sorry but I don’t know who that is. Looks like we did not miss much with Milton on the mound. I hope he does better on his second time around. With a day off Thursday we won’t need a 5 starter but maybe in Chicago.
