Sorry I haven’t posted for a while. I’ve had a few things I had to do….like work!
The Yankees series has been a revelation. The problems that the Dodgers have seemed to have has become worse.
The question is how can we make the Dodgers a winning team? Unfortunately good talent costs money and the Dodger owner (whoever that may be at thiis moment) are not willing to spend any.
The Dodgers need pitching help: starting and relieving. We have only Kuroda, Kershaw, Padilla and Billingsley. Bills is just coming off DL. Ely and Monasterios were called into action simply because there was no one else. Troncoso is not as good as he was last year. Sherrill is still a nightmare. Whenever I see him coming on the field, my stomach goes into contortions. Hager is now a memory since he was finally DFA’d. Kuo, Weaver and Belisario are the only relievers that are reliable. Kuo has TLC written all over him because his arm is brittle.
To be a championship caliber team, there must be good pitching. The Yankees series showed that the Dodgers have the offense. James Loney was magnificent. Reed Johnson had a great game yesterday. Belliard came off the bench with a huge homerun. The Dodgers also limited their errors, something that haunted them the last few games
Everyone was excited about the Yankees Series. I was dreading the crowds. The Dodgers have not been playing very well this month, so I just hoped that they would not be swept. I just was hoping that our guys could make it through the Series with a win.
My week was busy, starting out with work, work, work.
Then I decided to get a new Iphone. Liittle did I know that I would be standing in line for 6 hours.
Two days later, the phone kept telling me “No SIM card.” It now works and I love it. Would I stand in line again for 6 hours. Nooooooo.
There were a few interestingl things about the Yankees series. Number one was seeing Jane of “She Fan fame. Jane Heller is one of my favorite people anyway. She looked great. Her blog is of course, http://janeheller.mlblogs.com.
Another positive was, of couirse, seeing my friends at Dodger Stadium and also making new friends. One of my seat partners was a nice young man from Canada named Austin. He looked like a Dodger prospect. He told me he was a left handed pitcher in school until he injured his shoulder.
One thing that bothers me at the games are the #$%^&& beachballs. There were at least 4 that bounced on me or around me. Why would anyone bring a beachball to a baseball game?
Something else that bothers me is the hot sun. I spend the first two innings in the Baseline Club on Saturday. Much too hot. Only problem is that I ate the whole time I was in the Club. One of the chefs asked me if I ever got full. No, not reallyI
