Casey Blake, Derek Lowe, Eric Karros and Kirk Gibson.

What does Casey Blake, Derek Lowe, Eric Karros and Kirk Gibson have in common?   The number 23!  

Thank you to those that visit my blog!  My mlb blog  came in at #23 in the latest leaders for April!  

Let’s start with Casey Blake who started the season without a beard but ever since he started growing it back, the hits kept coming!    Casey Blake had three hits yesterday including a homerun.  I am glad you finally got to break in theCase Blake “In Beard We Trust” t-shirt Greg!

Another one that were #23 was Derek Lowe.  Derek wore #32 in Boston but since that number belongs to our beloved Sandy Koufax, Derek chose #23.

Erik Karros also wore #23 with the Blue

Emma,
Nice catch! 23 sure seems to be a lucky number.

I forgot Gibby and EK shared the same number.
In the present day Dodger divorce situation, I couldn’t help but thing of this IRONIC twist with Derek Lowe….

It was , I think accurately reported that when Jamie McCourt found out about Derek’s “infidelity” between Derek and Carolyn Hughes, while he was married, she read him the riot act….saying that it wasn’t right, and it was tarnishing the good name of the Dodgers……

How’s your bodyguard/boyfriend Jamie?

Go Blue!

Congrats on the 23 position… I gotta say my fav of the 23s would be Kirk. That homerun… Jack Buck’s call… one of the defining moments of my life :-)

haha Rob,
I too was thinking the same thing about Jaime and the preaching she did to D.Lowe. You know, when Camelback Ranch opened I saw Jaime walking around with that guy the bodyguard/boyfriend. I did not know who he was back then,.
.
Thanks Jane! I was glad it was #23! and of course I thought about Kirk Gibson right away!

Jeff,
I get chills everytime I watch Gibby’s homerun.

That catch he made against the Mets in the ’88 playoffs isn’t one of my favorite memories.
