Mets 3, Dodgers 2

Most of you saw the game, so I won’t go into unnecessary details. Broxton had no explanation for his implosion. “I haven’t seen it, so I can’t tell you,” he said. “I just got hit around. You’re going to get beat sometimes.” … Dylan Hernandez, Diamond Leung and I got a few minutes with Ned Colletti in the tunnel after the game. Said he might be getting close to acquiring a veteran utility infielder who could better plug the gap while Furcal is out, or if Furcal is out again later in the season. He also pointed out that the Dodgers aren’t getting blown out, that they were a hit or two or a pitch or two away from winning all four of the games they have lost on what is thus far a 1-4 trip and then pointed out that the Dodgers are a young team that hasn’t figured out how to win yet. “We’re still in the process of doing it,” he said. “It’s not like you’re going to go to sleep Thursday night and wake up Friday and it’s there.” … Dodgers fall to 27-28. Season is one-third over. Yes, it’s a long season. But no, it’s not early anymore. Snakes play later, but as Ned also pointed out, “We can’t worry about Arizona, Colorado, San Diego or San Francisco. We have to worry about the Dodgers, first and foremost. We have to get better..”

  • Brooklyn Dodger

    Any clue who that “veteran utility infielder” might be, and the cost of acquiring him?

  • TeamHasHoles

    How about Morgan Ensberg? DFA’d by NYY.

  • Brooklyn Dodger

    To the best of my knowledge, Ensberg is a corner infielder, and likely couldn’t handle 2B or SS.

  • TeamHasHoles

    True, but he didn’t say middle, he said “utility”. If they want a middle maybe a veteran guy like Craig Counsell or Chris Gomez.

  • Marcel

    If I had to guess, I would say Marco Scutaro. The Dodgers were supposedly scouting Toronto recently.

  • Tony Jackson

    No idea at this point. Sorry

    Most are not going to want to hear this, because both players are sub-prime, but the Mariners, who are languishing in last and have no hope, have two “veteran utility” players they would probably part with…

    Miguel Cairo & Willie Bloomquist.

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see one of these two land in L.A.
