    Anyone know if there is somewhere to listen to the game on the radio via internet? I tried KABC but it wasn’t the game.

    The pitching sure shut-up all the haters tonight.

  • GScott

    true that. Any answers to my question?

    well, Broxton was impressive as can be, 11-pitches in and out 98+ MPH average speed with 2 K’s…I liked that inning. The rest of the pitching was so-so.

    Just the beginning of the season and they aren’t as sharp as they will be. Wade looked good except for that fat belt high curve over the heart of the plate. Kuo was shaky with two walks and Kuroda was a bit of a disappointment to me. He lost it and lost it fast. Probably really needed to be yanked around pitch 70, maybe 75. That is my primary concern with him, durability. Still the season is brand new and there are 161 more to play. Better peak late than early.

    best part is nobody died or lost a body part…nice win.

    maybe I spoke a tad too soon…Martin apparently did almost lose a body part in the 9th:

    ==================================================
    Warming up for the ninth inning in his first opening day as the Dodgers’ closer, Jonathan Broxton drilled Martin in his protective cup.

    “I spiked a slider,” Broxton said.

    Martin couldn’t — or wouldn’t — dismiss the episode with a shrug of a shoulder the way Broxton did.

    “At that moment in time,” Martin said, “I wanted to retire.”
    =================================================

    ZOIKES!! They used ta call that a ding-dong…

    Oh, geeze, all I can here now is the Lollipop Guild singing “…Ding-Dong the Witch is…” and you know the rest…Peavy being the Witch?
