My first December post!

Hello MLB bloggers and posters! So what have I been up to? Well, for one thing, I was a little sad and upset that we did not offer arbitration to Randy Wolf. A lot of us Dodger fans were scratching our heads on that. We expected those draft picks! With the slim picking in the farm system, we could have used those draft picks.

Am I upset enough to stay away from Dodger Stadium to make a statement? Heck NO!!! I am not willing to let the turmoil of the ownership steal from the joy of being at my happy place that is Dodger stadium.

All the happy moments I have spend watching the Dodgers outweighs anything else. Had I stayed away in 2009, I would have missed going to Camelback Ranch with my friends, Vin Scully throwing out the first pitch on Opening Day, Orland Hudson hit for the cycle, Billingsley great start, Andre’s Walk-offs!, the great start by the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium, Matt Kemp, Loney, Broxton. The great road trips with my friends to San Diego and Chicago and going to the playoffs!

I will be there in 2010! I can’t wait for Spring Training, Opening Day and the whole 2010 season!

So last Saturday I met with LTD23, Erik and my brother Vic at Barragans! I wrote about this place before. It is the place we sometimes meet for breakfast during the baseball season on Sunday mornings prior to games! It was so good to meet there, enjoy a nice breakfast and talk about the Dodgers! I missed you guys! Afterwards we went to Dodger Stadium. The plan was to sit in our seats but the Top Deck was closed so we went to the right field gift shop. They still had the entire store at 50% off so we all bought some things for ourselves and for Christmas presents. Some jerseys and shirts of players that have left were discounted more than 50%. I bought an original Nomar jersey for $30! for Vic.

Afterwards, we went inside and sat there while watching the rain come down and enjoying the serenity of our happy place!

I just got a text from my friend LTD23 that Juan Pierre got traded to the White Sox for two minor leaguers! Thanks LTD23 for the update! You were the first one that broke the news to me!

Good luck Juanpie! Thanks for stepping up when Manny was out! I am glad that I was part of the crowd that gave you a standing ovation in appreciation for what you did in Manny’s absence.

Emma,
Glad to see you back writing before the holidays.
There has been a few things coming out of the Dodger camps lately that seem a bit, well unusual.
But the top tier of your organization needs to get a grip before free agents and other players get worried about the Battle of the McCourt’s.
Saw recently where he is trying to get a judge to put their divorce on the “fast track” to get her hands out of the Big Blue cookie jar.
Worst thing about owning a baseball team, your personal life is exploded all over things from TMZ to television for everyone else to make a judgement.
Thank goodness our own relationships do not get 24/7 broadcasting………Mine would look like that old pattern you saw after TV stations signed off for the night.
Have a glorious holiday season and a safe and fun New Years.

Rays!
Thanks! Yeah, there is too much bad news coming out about the Dodgers from TMZ and the regular newspaper. But owners will come and go and us fans will still be around. We will weather whatever is throwing at us and maybe return to the glorious days of this franchise. You too! hae a great holiday season! Cheers!

I look forward to watching Pierre play here in my backyard. Hope he still has a spark left. As for the Dodgers, jeesh, looks like they’re dumping salary. They still have some great young talented position players, but I’ve been surprised by their moves so far.

I was surprised the Dodgers sent Juan Pierre packing. As you pointed out, he did a great job subbing for Manny last year and has been valuable as a backup. But a lot of moves this Hot Stove season have left me scratching my head! Hope you’ve been having a good holiday.

Jeff,
yes, the Dodgers still have some great young players that are exciting to play!

Jane,
There was just no room for Pierre. He was a great teamate while he was here. I wish him the best. The Dodgers will still pay him 9 million of his remaining salary. I am having a great holiday season Jane. I might take my nieces to go see the Nutcracker this weekend.
Edited. had my finder on the zero instead of the 9. lol.

Hi Emma! Sorry to hear the Dodgers let Wolf go. It will be interesting to see how he does in Milwaukee. Randy is always a fan favorite; I guess there will be Wolf Packs all over! Hope you are having a great holiday season! I’d rather be in L.A. right now myself, not here where it’s been snowing all day – blech!
Enjoy the Nutcracker if you go – that has always been some of my very favorite holiday music.

Emma,
Had to come see if you had on a Blue Dodgers Santa cap.
Wishing you a awesome Christmas, and a safe and prosperous New Years.
Soon enough the trucks will be pulling out for Spring Training with loads of bats and equipment.

Sue,
Yeah and I hate that we did no get any compensation. Oh well. At least like you said, the Wolf pack fan will grow.
Yesterday’s paper showed a kid all bundled up and a car all covered in snow and the botton picture was a kid at Santa Monica Beach next to his built “sandman.” yeah, I rather be here, Maybe next weekend will take the nieces to see the Nutcracker. Too much to do this weekend.

Rays,
I’ve been searching for my Dodger Blue Santa hat and I have not been able to find it! ughh! Oh yeah, soon, soon we will see the truck going to Spring Training.!
