We have one more game against the Mets tonight and then the weekend series against the Brewers. Then it will be the all star break.
Yesterday’s game with the Mets was a disaster.
Kuroda just couldn’t find his rhythm. And the Dodgers got on base but couldn’t score. The guys got to within one run of the Mets with the homerun by Manny but went home emptyhanded when Andre couldn’t do what he has done in the past…win the game. Andre, I’m sure took that very hard. But as my son keeps telling me, “It’s only one game, Mom.” And there is still half the season left.
It was good news that Belisario has no structural damage in his elbow. He should be back in another week. Many of the Dodger relievers are young and pitch count is important to consider. Belisario has been Joe’s workhorse. Hopefully he will come back as strong as ever.
Manny seems to be getting back into the “swing of things.” Literally. I wonder whether Andruw is also getting his swing back with the homeruns yesterday. Maybe he is in better shape than he was when he was a Dodger. The comment made was that he was happier in Texas. Too bad he didn’t give the Dodgers their moneys worth.
There are rumors that the Dodgers are interested in Halladay. Unfortunately we would have to give up someone like Billingsley or Kershaw. That woud be a Stupid Move, in capital letters,
Sympathy with the family of Steve McNair. What a tragedy. Hopefuilly everyone gives the family their privacy.
