I am so proud of our guys. The Dodgers have now won all 10 home games, first time ever for the organization. They also swept the Padres (sorry Kaybee) in fine fashion at Dodger Stadium, also first time ever. They are 4 1/2 games ahead of the next team in the Western Diivision which is more games than any other leader.
When I look at the Dodgers, they look happy and have a wonderful comraderie. It is nice to see. I always stay to the end and watch them celebrate their victory with high fives and chest bumps. There never is one hero lately. I never call them “player of the game” but heroes.
Looking at todays game, Billingsley was outstanding as usual. Troncoso also came in strong as a reliever. And it so happened that four of the regular players were taking the day off: Russell Martin, Casey Blake, Raffy Furcal and Manny. And the Dodgers were still victorious. How cool is that??
Injury update: no fracture. Am I ever lucky. I have learned my lesson. No texting or chatting during BP. I kind of am holding a grudge against the Padres. I will always look at them as the ones who caused me so much pain and embarrassment (mostly embarrassment).
