“I’ve thought something was going on here for the last three weeks, but it was incredible,” Punto said. “The crowd was incredible. I think the fans are feeling what we’ve been feeling for a month inside the clubhouse.

“Now the fans are really getting involved. I was standing on second base in the ninth inning and it was deafening how loud the crowd was. A lot of excitement in this clubhouse and in L.A. -- and for good reason.”
"It felt normal to me," Capuano said. "I wasn't aware of anything. I knew we had soccer games, but I didn't think about it at all, that's how good a job they did."
  • Who says the Dodgers can't be a victim to a gaffe, here and there.  Via Ross Gasmer at Dodger Nation, "Video: Dodgers’ Juan Uribe Victim Of Hidden Ball Trick By Rays".
  • Ken Gurnick at has some Dodger quotes about yesterday's hidden ball trick.
"I was watching it, and I didn't know what to do to stop it," said pitcher Zack Greinke, who was on deck. "I didn't want to yell at Uribe, because I might get him off [the bag]. I didn't know what to do. He just lifted his foot for a tenth of a second and [Longoria] was ready for it."
"I try to talk about it enough to let people know," Mattingly said. "He and Mark Ellis are kind of bread and butter, right? They're there for the most part all the time, they do their thing and you don't really notice them because they're not real flashy, but it's kind of been all year long.
