"The doctors confirmed I do bleed Dodger Blue. I’m looking forward to being back at the stadium to cheer on the Dodgers."

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.
