From Larry Brown Sports:

There was a brief delay during the sixth inning of the Rockies-Dodgers game at Coors Field on Friday when a squirrel made a repeat appearance and ran around for about a minute. The squirrel first went for Dodgers starter Chris Capuano before hanging out at the feet of third base coach Rich Dauer. It eventually exited the field through the Dodgers’ dugout, allowing Jordan Pacheco to resume his at-bat.

We’re guessing the Rockies, which won 13-3, weren’t bothered by the critter. At least this delay was much better than what happened last month in Colorado.

The only remaining question is if this squirrel will end up on a ring like the "Rally Squirrel" that became famous during the Cardinals' World Series run last year after making appearances during the NLDS.

  • Baseball is so boring they had to hire a squirrel for a side show, too bad they didn't teach it any tricks or something. But then again were talking about a sport enjoyed by people who like to wait for hours before any real action happens. I guess a squirrel walking around would be refreshing entertainment.
  • Don't be dissing Rally Squirrel. The first time Rally Squirrel showed up Rockies won 6-1. Last night it showed up and Rockies went on a tear. The only thing that can break the good luck karma of the squirrel is bees.
  • There's something to be said for the Rally Squirrel ... look what he did for the Cardinals last season!

75 cents to watch the 1st place Dodgers

The Dodgers are 32-18 and have a 5.5 game lead for first place. They have the best record in baseball. However, you can still buy tickets to watch the Dodgers play for under a dollar. Wow… Financial problems or not, 75 cents is crazy. I thought the Mets and their 5 dollar tickets was crazy.
