How the West was Won or Lost: Dodgers vs Rockies Take two!
My Friday evening started very nice with Tommy Lasorda being honored. Before I went to the field level I ran into Nancy Bea (Dodger organist) and her husband. They are so sweet. I run into them every once in a while in the club level. I have a picture with her from a while back this time I wanted a picture with both of them. \
Here is a picture of the Tommy Lasorda plaque giveaway:
Isn’t this a nice plaque? this one is #5271 of 60K.
The Tommy celebration was wonderful. Lots of filmage of his manager years. There was this film of the Phillie Phanatic making fun of Tommy with a look-like Tommy inflatable doll where the Phllie Phanatic starts beating it up
Lots of players that played for Tommy in attendance like Steve Sax, Leary, Karros, Monday, Landreaux, Charlie Hugh, etc. All were wearing their jerseys.
As everyone knows, Dodgers are still looking for that illusive win. They have lost five in a row for the first time. Manny struck out FOUR TIMES, all with runners in scoring position. Casey Blake, who returned to the lineup also struck out FOUR TIMES.
The Dodgers 3-6 hitters were 0-14 with 9 strickouts. Ouch!
Here is hoping and praying that the Dodger bats wake up from their long long slumber zzz.
Can they do it? Tomorrow will be the best chance with Clayton Kershaw going for the Dodgers. Can Manny bounce back after a miserable week which has seen him go 0/10 with 8 strikeouts including his last six time at bat.
C’mon Keshaw! I want to see that public enemy number pitch working!
They may be bums, but they are my bums!! Go Dodgers!!
