Dodgers tied for first with the Padres! Rest in Peace Jose Lima
I don’t like inter-league games but I am glad to see the Tigers for a chance to see Sparky Anderson at the game!
Here is a great picture of Joe Torre, Sparky Anderson and Leyland. pic from Jon Soohoo.
Is too bad the game was part of the game of the week so no Vinny. Maybe Sparky will be back today Sunday when the Dodgers go for the sweep!
You all remember my little broom (size of a pencil_no brooms allowed at Dodger Stadium) that I took to San Diego? Well I am taking to Dodger Stadium today.
Fear the Beard Case Blake had a homerun and so did Matt Kemp. Matt had not hit one out since Ned Colletti’s rant to the media.
Here is Kemp sporting the “In Beard we Trust” tshirt of Casey
Saturday it was Taiwan Day in the “This is My Town” section so it was nice that Hong-Chih Kuo and Fu Te Ni got in the game. The promotion includes Taiwanese food and a t-shirt. The night before it was “Star Wars Day” and it was fun seeing all the characters of Star Wars.
Here is a picture of the section with Taiwanese fans going bonkers seeing Kuo on the mound. Notice the Dodger Stadium Club below which now has outside seating.
In his last four games, he had not given up a walk until Saturday. This kid is not afraid to go after the hitters. He had a shaky first inning Saturday but he settled just fine after that. I wonder why the White Sox included him in the trade with Juan Pierre. Oh and he is also in MLBblog Baseball fantasy team. So another win for the Dodgers and another win for the Locos Azules.
Let’s Go Dodgers!
Going for the sweeep today!
Note: I picked up Edwin Encarnacion after he came back from the DL and he has hit 5 homeruns for me since May 18! WOW! I forgot who dropped him.
Ice Cream Time!
Walter O’Malley had a tradition of treating his staff to ice cream at 2:00 P.M. every day that the Dodgers were in first place. This tradition is still carried over to this day at Dodger Stadium.
Rest in Peace Jose Lima. Sad news of Jose Lima, 37 passing away of a heart attack. I just saw him Friday night at Dodger Stadium. He had started a baseball school here in the LA area. We will never forget ”LIMA TIME” Rest in peace Lima.
