Oh is so much fun being at Dodger Stadium with Yasiel Puig there. I know we have to be cautious but the last two days have been fun fun fun with Cuban missile Yasiel Puig.
Monday 6/3/13 – I was so looking forward to his debut. He got two hits in the first game and in the 9th inning he used his powerful and accurate right arm to complete a game-ending double play, catching the San Diego Padres off guard in a 2-1 victory at Dodger Stadium. He sent us fans happy.
and the throw
Tuesday 6/4/13- What did he do for an uncore for this second start? He hit not one but TWO homeruns! Here is Yasiel Puig showing off his two homerun balls.
We want to see more of these balls and this
How sweet to see Quentin making the last out! We dd not want to leave the stadium after the game so we hang around watching the highlights on the big screens THEN we exited the stadium. Fun fun times at Dodger Stadium. Let the party continue! Clayton Kershaw on the mound tonight!
Good to see Randy of Let’s Talk Dodgers last night. We saw a heck of a game!

Ross Porter will be at Dodger Stadium this weekend! I read it on Tom Hoffard column here: http://www.dailybulletin.com/ci_23359256/tom-hoffarth-media-ross-porter-returns-dodger-stadium
From the article:
The 74-year-old has stayed busy on various broadcasting projects and finds himself returning to the stadium today as an employee of Fox Sports West. Executive producer Tom Feuer hired him to call today’s CIF Southern Section Division III title game between Mira Costa and Serra (2 p.m.) as well as the Division II championship between Cypress and Temecula Valley (5 p.m.), both of which will stream on the FoxSportsWest.com Prep Zone online platform
I would love it if he would return working for the Dodgers.
In the meantime, the Dodgers are in Colorado after dropping the two games at Anaheim Stadium. I made the trip to Anaheim for the two games. I drove for the first game and took the Metrolink special train the second night. I do recommend taking the train. It is $7 round trip. The train back from the stadium leaves 30 minutes after the last out.
Tonight is El Niño de Oro Clayton Kershaw against Garland. Game at 5:40 p.m. Pacific Time.
I’ve been working on updating the living Brooklyn Dodgers players list. I am adding some additional data as a request from a commenter but I am having some difficulty now that I added an additional column to the Excel worksheet. It is not copying correctly to WordPress. Anyway, when adding addtional data to the list, -see list here http://crzblue.mlblogs.com/2013/01/02/honoring-the-brooklyn-dodgers-players-alive-in-2013/ _ I noticed one player that played with the Angels.
Can you name him?
It might be an easy question for some of you. Maybe I should give a prize…hmmm.
Dodgers at Angel Stadium.
I went to Angel Stadium last night. It is a long way from work in the San Fernando valley to Anaheim. Anyway, I went there
Weaver was dealing but at the end the Dodgers made it a close game losing 4-3. Dodgers took the first two games at Dodger Stadium so lets hope Dodgers can win tonight. Ted Lilly will be looking for his first win against Vargas.
The rumors have been flying high about Don Mattingly being fired soon. Even non-baseball fans at work have come to me saying “I hear Don Mattingly is getting fired soon.”
I am in the minority but I don’t think Mattingly is getting fired and I don’t think he should be fired.
Firing Mattingly seems like a sign of desperation. I doubt they find someone available that is better at this stage in the season. If management wants to do something they should have done it in the offseason.
I don’t think you can blame Mattingly for the Dodgers poor performance. I think that Mattingly is doing a fairly good job especially with all of the injuries plaguing the team. I do think that he should give Kemp a day off here and there and the same goes for Ethier and Crawford. If Van Slyke is fairly hot, play him.
So here is Thursday, a Dodger day off and the day that some think Mattingly will be fired. The Dodgers open up a three game series with the Cardinals. I think Mattingly will be there.
The matchups for this weekend:
Friday: Capuano faces Lance Lynn. Capuano had two pretty good starts in his last two starts.
Saturday: The game starts at 4:15 on Jaime Jarrin Bobblehead Night. Ted Lilly returns from the DL to face John Gast. I hope Ted Lilly pitches like he pitched on his first start instead of his second. It is also Jaime Jarrin Bobblehead day! Game on Fox.
Sunday: Clayton Kershaw against Shelby Miller. I have not missed a game this year and I especially make it a point not to miss Kershaw’s games. This game promised to be a good matchup.
The Dodgers and the Brewers have exactly the same record: 17 wins, 25 losses. At least the Brewers were able to win one of the three games they played against St Louis. The Dodgers got swept by the Braves.
It was a tough weekend in Atlanta where the Dodgers were leading in all three games but the bullpen let it get away. The bullpen collapse and the light hitting undermined the starters pitching.
Off to Milwaukee they go with their tails between their legs.
It seems like the season is slipping away, like Jaime Jarrin’s shirt says “Se Va, Se Va, y Despidala con un Beso”
Lefty NIÑO de ORO, Clayton Kershaw
against Mexican righty Yovani Gallardo
The Dodgers won two of three from the Brewers in a late April series this season, while Milwaukee won six of seven games between the teams in 2012.
When the Dodgers are in Miwaukee, we always remember the time Shawn Green hit four home runs in one game at Milwaukee . Shawn did that on 5/23.02. The Dodger with the highest home runs this year for the Dodgers is Crawford with five. Adrian Gonzalez has four, Ethier and Scott Van Slyke have three. A.J. Ellis, Mark Ellis and Uribe have two. Kemp, Ramirez, Hairston, Gordon), Sellers, Kerhshaw and Punto each have one.
Let’s go Dodgers! Let’s go!
Yeah that is Rue (Ruda) for good luck
Five days till Opening Day!
From Tony Cuccinello 2 Cookie Lavagetto 2 Carl Furillo 2 Sandy Amoros 2 Lefebvre 2 Hee-Seop Choi 2 Nomah and yes, to Juan Uribe have put on uniform #5. Five more days to wait till Opening Day but I get to see Dodger Stadium this Friday when the Dodgers play the Angels. I can’t wait!
I don’t know about everyone else but this Spring Training seems like it has dragged longer. Is time for the Boys in Blue to come back to Our Lady of Chavez Ravine _Dodger Stadium. There are a whole lot of changes there that I am looking forward to seeing it all.
It’s a whole new blue!

Last year I went to Camelback Ranch for the St Patrick’s weekend with friends Lorena and Elisa.
This year the three of us headed that way again. Lore and I talked that we should make it a tradition to spend St Patrick’s Day watching the Dodgers every year.
After we ran into Pat and Norma. I seem like I always ran into them on the road.
We ran into Cochito! haha, a different cochito
After we ran into Pat and Norma. I seem like I always ran into them on the road.
Looking for a pic of the birthday girl Margie but I could not find one. Also of Randy from Let’s Talk Dodgers and Mary and Art from our Top Deck family.
Relaxing at the game
Elisa’s beautiful panoramic pictures. She showed me how to take them too. That is me walking with my Trayvon Robinson green jersey and my floppy hat
I like this picture with Lore and I walking
Elisa titled this picture “the person behind the hat, Crzblue” Yeah, me and my floppy hats. I forgot the blue one that I purchased a year ago on St Patrick’s Day so I took that one that I purchased a month before when we were in Arizona for the Dodgers workouts.
Speaking of traditions, I was disappointed that Jaime Jarrin, Pepe Yniguez & Fernando Valenzuela were not broadcasting the game in Spanish for St Patrick’s Day. Our Irish poet Vin Scully was there so why not our Spanish poet Jaime? I asked Mr. Jarrin when was the last time he missed a St Patrick’s game. He said:
@crzblue Emmita: nunca perdí un S.Patricio desde 59 hasta el 2008. En ùltimos 6 años he perdido uno en camelback Ranch. Abrazos.

As I was looking for a hotel at Camelback Ranch I saw this
You Could Win a Trip to LA for the 42 Premiere Screening!
And step up to the plate every day for a chance to win tickets to 42!
naturally I entered the contest.
Afterwards I saw the preview of the movie.
Man! I am going to need some kleenex when I go see the movie!
We can never thank Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey enough.
Go Dodgers! Heading to Camelback Ranch this weekend.
