Just Getting Warmed Up

It was a disappointment that my Dodgers lost their first two games but I thought that they were getting a few kinks ironed out

Okay, so maybe we were playing as though we were sleepwalking.  Could we have left more Dodgers on base?

So maybe the Dodgers played as though they were a new team just trying things out.

Today the Dodgers finally won.

It’s as though they woke up from a deep sleep.

Ronnie Belliard smashed a homerun in the fifth inning.  He also doubled and tripled.   James and Matt also were hitting machines.  The great thing is that Raffy is running and stealing bases again.

I never doubted that the guys would start winning.  Todays score against the hard playing Pirates was 10-2.  It definitiely is a sign that Chad Billingsley is back.  Interestingly enough our silver slugger Andre Ethier was not playing because of his ankle which he rolled in the game yesterday.  Hopefully he recovers quickly.

Opening Day for our Dodgers at Dodger Stadium will be Tuesday next week.  It should be fun.  It will be good to have baseball back again.  It will be even better because my son will be visiting me.  Hopefully he will be able to go to a few games with me, like maybe Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  The funny thing is that on Wednesday I will have my season seat, a baseline seat, plus I purchased a seat for Dr J in the right field section so she will have a nice view of Andre, her favorite player.  The seats are spread out over the stadium. It just happened that way. 

Update on my cat:  He is recuperating well although he is still thin.  He also is very loving and wants to be held and cuddled.  So much for that independent cat.  A month on his own changed his whole attitude.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope everyone has a great baseball day.

    The first games were nothing like last year. They were just struggling. But hopefully yesterday game is the beginning of a winning streak! LET’S GO DODGERS!
