I turned off last night’s Dodgers-Angels game around the time Vin Scully started talking about how Nick Punto was “scrappy” and “blue collar.” Even the legends fall victim to that jazz, it seems. Oh well.
Before that happened, however, I saw a LOT of bad Dodgers defense. Like, “I wonder why Zack Greinke hasn’t gone on a killing spree yet” defense. The highlight of that bad defense came in the first inning when the Angels scored not one, but two runs on a strikeout. It was truly magical:
The Dodgers were charged with three errors yesterday. There could have easily been five or six, but the official scorer apparently took pity on everyone but the Dodgers’ pitchers. How they ended up winning that game I have no idea.
