It was Mother’s Day yesterday, and all attendees of the game got an Andre Either tote (which was not ejected from the game) and a chance to observe some LA domination over the Rox. All with pink gear, too!

This is kind of awesome, and kind of involves the Dodgers, just the first grade kind.

Another rare occasion: a decent story by Yahoo! Sports

In Beard We Trust
Casey Blake retired, and I couldn’t be any more devastated. I’ve always loved Blake, he was so consistent and had such a keen eye for defense, and I still think it was a mistake not keeping him. It was an absolute pleasure watching him on the Dodgers and he will remain a Dodger in my eyes forever. Thank you, Casey.

The Johnson Era has begun


After the announcements, interviews, articles, etc: the Magic Johnson era has officially begun, and could it be done more perfectly? The first game of the Giants series (which I happily attended, yay!) in which we won 9-1. “Do You Believe in Magic?” filled the stadium in between innings and it was just beautiful. I’m so excited for this era to reach its full potential. I’m confident that we are going to do phenomenal things under Johnson/Guggenheim.

Kemp, although taken out early due to hamstring problems, was 3-for-3 and stole home. Birthday boy Loney came in and did work. Lilly, one of the most fascinating workers in the game, gets another win and Kershaw is up today against Vogelsong (0-2, 3.42), hopefully to demolish San Francisco… again.

We’re five games up, have the best record in the National League and are tied with Baltimore and Texas for the best record in the Majors. Is this real? Is this the actual Dodgers? Did we really have 43,000 in attendance on a Monday

Life is beautiful in Los Angeles.

Taking a moment from the baseball world to give my respect to a Los Angeles legend, Junior Seau. Thank you for everything and leading your life with the spirit of Troy. 1969-2012.

It’s a little too late into the season for me to be making predictions, but hey, why not determine some stuff? I’ve been getting lots of criticism from haters — because let’s admit, they are straight up HATERS — on how the Dodgers are just going through a hot streak, but why is that a problem? Hell, the 2010 Giants (it physically hurts to type that out) were essentially a series of hot streaks and they won a Series. We had a pretty great year in ‘09, and in my opinion, our lineup and ownership are lightyears better than ‘09. 

Do I see us winning a Series? No. Do I see us entering postseason as a genuinely competitive team, leaving others in fear of next season? Oh, hell yeah. We have a decent amount of great tools under our belt that, if used intelligently, can kick the National League’s ass. Our pitching staff is cleaning up beautifully and we have Matt Kemp in his own league of complete and utter domination. With it being Ethier’s contract year and batting after Kemp, we’re gonna be seeing a LOT more from him. Loney is still in his mild beginning-of-the-season slump, but for a guy that bats over .300 during the second half of the season, am I really that upset? Not really. He’ll do wonders for our postseason play. 

I’m hopeful, and I haven’t said that in a while.
