Dodgers Yankees series.

I know I’ve been a little down with the Dodgers getting swept at Boston and that running blunders of game two against the Angels but we won last night in big fashion 10 -6!!   woohoo! 

And tonight my boys in blue are back at OLOCR _Our Lady of Chavez Ravine that is Dodger Stadium, our Blue Heaven on Earth! 

The LA Times has two wonderful pictures in the sport section:  One of  Joe DiMaggio with  Mickey Mantle and the other of our pair of aces, Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale.  the title?  World Class.  check out the article hereWorld Class  Love this pic:

The matchup for tonight’s game is:

CC Sabathia  against Vicente Padilla. 

Remember that homerun CC Sabathia hit at Dodger Stadium during that interleague game in  when  he was with Cleveland?     We were both at the game in 2008 but could not remember who he hit the HR off of?   Guess who?    

Chan Ho Park!  I am sure CC is looking forward to swinging the bat again. 

Padilla:   Make sure we don’t see this:

 I want to see this:

  

I am thinking “Maybe Sandy Koufax would be in attendance!    

It got to be a little weird for Joe Torre seeing the Yankees in town.   BTW, Torre and Jeff:  When am I getting my baseball?    Last time I received a text from Jeff from the Safe at Home Foundation, he said he had my baseball signed by Joe and Koufax in a safe place.  

Let’s go Dodgers Let’s Go!

Vin Scully:  We Love you!!

Emma ~ I really hope the Dodgers do well in this series against the Yanks and don’t get swept. It’s bad enough when the Mets swept us and the next day I found my cubical at work covered with Met paraphernalia. I don’t want to go through that again.

Jane,
I’ll look for you! I’ll be there as soon as the gates open!
.
Will,
I so hope the Dodgers give me a nice birthday present. My birthday is Monday. Tomorrow I’ll stop by the cathedral or La Placita (Olvera Street) and light a candle for the Bums.

Emma, you should probably already be at the stadium by now, maybe even enjoying the good food and drink… hope the evening goes well for your guys, hope you have fun and enjoy….

I do too RFB! We are losing 2-1 right now. Both managers warned after CC hit Padilla. Sorry about getting no hit but I am happy for Edwin.

Thanks Peter! Yep I was able to sneak out of work early.

Boy that 52 mile changeup that Padilla is throwing looks weird heading home

Yanks in Dodger Stadium. Sounds very classic. I watched alot of stuff on ESPN all day about how epic this series is. I hope it lives up to the hype for you!!

RFB,
Very classy indeed. Reminded me of their World Series meetings. It was a good pitching dual last night, my kind of games.

I hope you & Jane can hook up at the game…take pictures! And have a great time :O)

Jenn,
Yes, I finally got to meet Jane. I was not able to take a pic with her though as after taking her to meet friends at two levels, the game was starting.

Hey Mike!
Yes, that was a nice licking on AJ and the Yankees. Birthday boy Jetter were the sombrero with three strickouts.

Is that… James Loney?! O.O

Okay i’m back :D teehee It’s amazing that you met Ms. Heller! That’d be so cool. It’s weird talking and blog posting with others and you have never even met them! I’d love to go to a game with you some time. I mean i’m so close to dodgers stadium anyways!
