Dodgers Win! Furcal Web Gem! I met Jane Heller!
When we were down 3-0 in the first inning, I was saying”Oh boy here we go again, having a bad first inning.” but the boys came back and Kuroda-san settle down. Kuo was NASTY! Was that really a 98 MPH fastball he threw?!?!
The game ended with a great play by Furcal. It was the #1 Webgem for Saturday:
Let me say this again, “(insert team) suck” has to be the most immature, stupid chant I’ve ever heard. You don’t hear it with the regular season ticket holders around me and I imagine with true Dodger fans and Baseball fans. I also don’t boo great players.
On his birthday, Derek Jeter struckout three times. Kuroda, Kuo and Broxton struck him out. Joe Torre was quoted as saying “Well, it was my present to him”
Earlier in the day, Joe Torre and Derek Jeter had gone to the John Wooden public memorial at the the UCLA Pauley Pavilion.
Did I say that Kuo has been NASTY lately. This guy has gone thru so many T.J. operations and is basically an out away from ending his career but he keeps on pitching! My Dodger hat off to you Kuo!
And my boy James Loney drove in four runs! Here is Loney with my friend Erik who is celebrating his birthday today. Happy birthday Erik! May the Dodgers bring us a win!
I finally got to meet the famous Jane Heller! Too bad I just spent a little time with her. I also got to meet her husband and LadyJane who posts in Jane Heller’s blog. Wish I would have gotten a second chance to take the pic as this came out a little blurry and to spend more time with you and your husband Jane.
A battle of lefties for the rubber matchup today: The tough Veteran Andy Pettitte against 22 year old Kershaw. Kershaw needs to control those walks. He has given up 48 walks, the most in the NL and the Yankees lead the Majors in OBP.
With Fox doing the game yesterday and today ESPN, I MISS VIN SCULLY!
Oh I forgot to mention that after his running, Padilla came over to the rail in the left field side and signed alot for fans in that side then the center field side. Quite a few Yankee fans were there too getting his autograph. I and many congratulated him on his outing the day before. He signed my scorebook. I asked him in Spanish who he was rooting for in the World Cup after USA was already out. He looked at me, smiled and said “Is going to be tough but I am rooting for Mexico.
LET’S GO DODGERS!
LET’S GO MEXICO
