Today the Dodgers will play the Arizona Diamondbacks on the road with Clayton Kershaw pitching. Hopefully a day of rest will benefit everyone. Orlando Hudson should be back in the lineup. The Dodgers will play in Arizona over the weekend and then return to play the St Louis Cardinals on Monday. I will be there sitting in a baseline seat again. This time I will be sitting on the even side so I can see what goes on in the Dugout. I usually like to sit on the odd side because I consider that the Dodger side. I’ll get a different perspective on things.
The two wins in San Francisco broke them out of their slump. It may have been the turning point. The offense has been picking up, Manny seems to be hitting again. The only worry is the starting pitching. Billingsley is still nursing his hamstring. Mota has made a couple of crucial mistakes in the latter innings resulting in a loss for the Dodgers. It is almost certain that an SP must be signed to keep them in contention. The surprise has been Kuo, one of my favorite pitchers. He’s like the energizer bunny. He keeps on running. Nothing stops him.
I am looking forward to Monday. Marynell will be there with me. She just returned from Nicaragua baseball deprived so she needs some Dodger baseball. I have one more night to work and then I will be free. I’ll put gas into my Dodger car, fit my new Dodger seat covers on my seats and place those fantastic Dodger floor mats on the floor. I’ll be all set to go.
I want a sweep in Arizona. It certainly would be nice to do well on the road.
Thanks for stopping by.
