I have to say, at least Lowe was out there competing. If Hillenbrand even takes a look at the runner stranded between third and home, the inning never gets to that point.
However, I don't think there is anything more embaressing than the way this team packs it in everytime we face Peavy. Bunch of ****ing cowards.

It will really be for the best if the Dodgers use this month for rebuilding.

Nice debut for Meloan. 1-2-3 inning with a K.

And LaRoche is still in Vegas while we watch Hillenbrand strikeout on bad balls.

This is one major issue I have with Colletti. It's obviously something he has picked up from Sabean. Ned loves, absolutely loves veteran players. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it is when your bringing in veteran players for the sole reason that they are vets.

For me the jury is still out on Colletti. He pushed most of the right buttons 2 off seasons ago but pushed a ton of wrong ones last off season. Combine that with his hard on for veteran players and I'm pretty skeptical. I'm sure he'll get another off-season, McCourt seems to like him, we'll see what he does.
Anyways, the season isn't over although it looks bleak. They'll be plenty of time to discuss Colletti in the off-season, just wanted to get this off my chest.

Perhaps, in reality a lot of these youngsters are our best option anyways.

3B, call up LaRoche. He's just as good an option as Hillenbrand/REM/or even Nomar at this point.
1B, is Loney's job, I think he's proven that.
Meloan, he's ready no need to worry about him. Hand him the 7th inning job and let him run with it. If Saito is back next year, Meloan-Broxton-Saito will be a devastating group, I'm that high on Meloan.
I'm a little more cautious regarding pitchers. Houlton should be up, certainly he or Stults should be starting ahead of even Wells(hasn't been bad but he won't be around next year). Or even Loaiza but we have to know what kind of product we got for next season. I don't want to rush that McDonald kid. He's had a meteoric rise but we rushed Edwin Jackson and that screwed him up. Ditto Kershaw, he needs a full season in Jacksonville.

I'm not so sure they pack it in. Pretty much every teams does about the same against Peavy. He's just that good!

I said that on the 25th of August, after which they went on a four game winning streak. I wonder why they've stopped taking my threat seriously?
