      That's a good Q? RnD. Baseball teams are "geared" to play, basically every day (pitchers not withstanding). In this case, i think that i have to go with "get rested". Especially for our younger players. This gives them a chance to get that first time, emotional "high" from winning the N.L.D.S. against the Cubs out of their system and re-focus on the next "mission". With the help of a host of veteran players that have been there before. Albeit, with other teams.

      .........But, of course, "Rust Never Sleeps"!

        I like the off time. It gives Joe Torre time to work his mental magic especially with the younger players.

        We are going to beat the Phillies.....I'm guessing 6 games or less.

            I 'think' I agree with you littlegreenramfan, for the kids who are not yet used to the longer season it is a chance to recharge their batteries, for the veterans it is a chance to re-focus.

            Yet rust is a cancer which works to diminish the strength of even the strongest.

              In the two four game series against the Phillies in the regular season this year we swept them in L.A. They swept us in Philly. They have the home field advantage. If this trend continues, we cannot win this series. And, although, i think this is a different team (Dodgers) than when we were swept by the Phillies. So are the Phillies. Their pitchers are excelling and they are producing runs. I think that it is imperative that we leave Philly with at least a split. If not, well you fill in the blanks ..........C_ _ _ and D_ _ _ _ _ _ t_ _ P_ _ _ _ .

                  No doubt, RnD. Lowe was looking good until Furcal committed the error in the sixth. I don't know if that threw him off mentally (pitchers are fickle). But he sure served up a couple of "fat" pitches after that! We let that one get away from us.
                  I really do like our chances tomorrow with Billingsley on the mound against Myers! I think Hamels is by far their best pitcher. And we won't see him again for a few games. But i'll say it again. WE NEED A SPLIT IN PHILLY!

                    As long as we win all our home games it doesn't matter which game we win in Philly.

                    GO DODGERS!!!!

                      You're right, laramO! And down 2 games to 0 after Billingsley's poor performance today (which surprised me) we better win all our home games. This is why i believed it was so important to leave Philly with a split early in the series. Now, even if we win 2 of 3 in L.A. We still would have our backs against the wall and would have to win games 6 AND 7 in their house. A TALL order, to be sure, since we are a combined 0-6 in their park this year. And i know that the Phillies are 0-4 in L.A. this season. But i think that they'll be able to play a lot "looser ball" knowing that all they need is 1 win in L.A. to have the considerable advantage of going back home to their crowd knowing they still would have a margin for error.
                      What also bothers me is the way they won Game 2. With "small ball" instead of depending on the "long ball". That has to build confidence for them heading to Dodger Stadium. The pressure is definitely on the dodgers, now.
                      I am not saying that we can't get it done. I believe that we can! And hope that we do!


                      GO DODGER BLUE!!! WIN 3 IN L.A.!!!

                        You're right Yoda,

                        Well we won game one at Dodger Stadium. Each game we win at home adds pressure to that Philly team.

                          I think we have more pressure now than the Phillies...

                          But then maybe MLB will instruct the umpires to "let" the Dodgers win as who really wants to see a Rays VS Phillies World Series?

                            I believe you recently had a birthday and if so, hope it was a happy one!

                            The Dodgers are certainly under alot of pressure. The young kids are showing their lack of playoff experience. I hate to say it but the Dodgers are choking it away! Despite the awesome play of Manny Ramierez. Loney, Either, Kemp, Russell and the rest of the Dodgers youth will have to learn when you get to this stage, you must elevate your game. The whole world is watching and youth is not an excuse for failure, just look at the Tampa Rays.
                            Also our pitching staff has been exposed in this series and Torre's managing should be called into question.

                            Once again DEM BUMS will have to wait til next year! Hopefully then they'll learn to bleed DODGER BLUE!!!

                              Down 3-1 is tough. Not to mention the Phillies ace Cole Hamels is pitching game 5. I haven't given up hope......We are still alive!!!

                                HOW 'BOUT DEM DODGERS! Nice clean sweep of the Cubbies!
                                LA's real Baseball team steps up to the plate! Seems like the California Angels of Anaheim are just pretenders, down 0-2 to the Boston Red Sox. Really like the energy at Dodger stadium, love those 'Terrible Towels'.
                                More than likely the Dodgers will meet up with the Phillies, which will make for a great Championship series. Russell Martin is playing great ball! Nomar and Kent on the bench, what depth! Along with the great pitching everything's coming together for the Dodgers at the right time.

                                The Los Angeles Dodgers.....Is the World Series(ous)?

                                Don't hear or read much about the Dodgers here in the northeast. What's going on with the team. What will the starting team look like and the starting rotation? What do the fans think of the Joe Torre hiring?

                                Thanks in advance

                                3-2 so far having beaten the dreaded SF Giants the last 2 games in SF. Dodgers are looking good so far especially considering they haven't started hitting yet.

                                This could be the Year?

                                Roski plans ‘major announcement’

                                By JOHN NADEL, AP Sports Writer 46 minutes ago

                                LOS ANGELES (AP)—Edward P. Roski Jr., a part owner of the Kings and Lakers who has spent several years trying to lure an NFL team to the Los Angeles area, has scheduled a news conference at Staples Center to make a “major announcement” concerning the league and L.A.

                                On Thursday, Roski will unveil his latest concept for a stadium in the City of Industry, near the southern intersection of the 57 and 60 freeways some 20 miles east of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Times reported on its Web site Wednesday.

                                The stadium would be surrounded by a high-end shopping mall, already in the works, the newspaper said.

                                Roski didn’t immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press.

                                NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told the AP that the league wasn’t involved in Thursday’s news conference.

                                Los Angeles, the second-largest market in the country, has been without an NFL team since 1995, when the Raiders moved back to Oakland after playing 13 years at the Los Angeles Coliseum and the Rams moved from Anaheim to St. Louis.

                                Los Angeles lost out to Houston for an expansion franchise since that time, and the league hasn’t made relocating to the area a top priority in recent years.

                                Proposals have been made for numerous stadium sites in the area over the years including the Coliseum and the Rose Bowl in Pasadena as well as in Irwindale, Inglewood, Carson and Anaheim.

                                Roski and Philip Anschutz, the head of AEG, headed up construction of Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles. The Lakers, Kings and Arena Football League’s Los Angeles Avengers play their home games at the facility, which opened in October 1999. AEG is not involved in Thursday’s news conference either, according to a spokesman.

                                Well, the Los Angeles Angels (of Anaheim) made their case in a sweep of Los Angeles' other baseball team, the Los Angeles Dodgers (of Chavez Ravine).
                                Los Angeles Angels improves its record to (27-18) 1st place in AL WEST.
                                Los Angeles Dodgers fall to (25-19) 1st place in the NL WEST.
