The picture above was taken by me right after Matty Kemp’s grand slam homerun. I was screaming and jumping up and down at the same time so it’s amazing that the picture is in focus. This was only one of the homeruns that Matt hit today.
It just seems that the Dodgers are becoming unbeatable. Oops, as everyone tells me, the Dodgers started out strong last season and then slumped. Part of the reason was Furcal’s season ending back surgery. So let the Cat dream a little.
The Dodgers swept the Giants handily and then did the same with the Rockies. I was happy about the first sweep since as a Dodgers ardent supporter, I can’t stand the Giants. I was happy for the second sweep because Clint Hurdle has publically stated that he doesn’t like the Dodgers. Well, so there, Clint. Now go back to Colorado.
And it seems that there is a different hero everyday. Today was Matt Kemp’s day. Besides his homeruns which pretty much set the tone for the pounding that the Rocks got today, his defense was amazing. He was superman. And congratulations to Scott Elbert who was just called up from the minors after Cory Wade’s going on DL with bursiitis. He was the winning pitcher and also was successful at bat, even though it was a borrowed bat from Randy Wolf. He also borrowed Randy’s gloves. Yesterday the hero was our guy Andre Ethier. Let’s hear it from our resident Ethieroholics. Of course Manny is everyones hero every day.
Now the Dodgers go on the road. Hopefully they can stay in number one since that is where they belong. Their offense is strong, their pitching is surviving, and Broxton is outstanding. As everyone says, the Dodgers have had a perfect homestamd.
Back to work tomorrow night. I feel like I have been in a dream going to so many Dodger games. I love my guys. I love baseball.
