Baseball Players are Soccer Fans Too

I love this! Alanna Rizzo tweeted this:

Then Yasiel Puig posted this on IG:
PUIG Y ADRIAN SOCCER

I love these two guys!

On Saturday  when we saw Yasiel Puig as he was going one way and us another, I called his name, Yasiel turned around and recognized me.  He came over to give me a hug then I told him this time Rosie was with us (If you read the post from Viva Los Dodgers he asked “where is the 3rd one?” :-)) .  He said he looked for us.  he then asked us if we had eaten _We had just had a big breakfast so we told him we did and that we were on our way to a church. He said “I can’t pray on an empty stomach” lol.

Yesterday after the game we went to say goodbye to the players as they boarded the bus that took them to the airport.  Some fans got Adrian’s attention that they had a Mexican flag in support of Mexico playing on Monday in the World Cup.  Adrian opened his backpack showing us that he was carrying his Mexico jersey.

 

Mexico won 3-1.  Now Boys in Blue go take care of the Royals!

Dodger Stadium: The Happiest Place on Earth, The Magic Castle

Vin Scully has called Dodger Stadium, the Magic Castle. That is what it was on Wednesday, The Magic Castle, The happiest place on Earth.

Greinke loaded the bases in the first inning with no outs but for some reason, I was not nervous. Greinke got out of it with no runs scored by the Cardinals. Greinke ended up giving up two runs in the third but that was all in his seven innings of game 5 of the NLCS. The bearded one, Brian Wilson was lights out in his 8th. Kenley Jansen in the 9th gave ME palpitations. The Cardinals scored two more runs but Kenley got out of it. Dodgers had four homeruns in the game: Adrian Gonzales off Kelly, Crawford off Kelly, A.J. Ellis off Mojica and Adrian with his second one off Oxford. Final score: Dodgers 6, Cardinals 4.

After game 3 on Monday, Waingwright said that Adrian’s celebratory gestures were Mickey Mouse. I wore my Dodgers Mickey Mouse ears for game 4 and 5. I lost track of how many fans asked me “Where did you get the Mickey Mouse ears?” They wore selling them back in 2010 at Disneyland when the MLB All-Star game was in Anaheim. My friend Greg and Linda who have yearly passes wore able to get them for me back then.

After Adrian’s first homer-run he did this:

Adrian was asked about it afterwards and he said he was just having fun.  when he hit his 2nd home-run, he was all business.   Adrian likes Mikey Mouse!  Anyone remember when he came from Boston to the Dodgers? He was wearing a Mickey Mouse shirt.

We were all having fun with Waingwright’s comment  and that is the reason I wore my Mickey Mouse ears.

My friend Greg also wore his for Tuesday’s game

Photo: They've both been offered big bucks for the ears.

Ok, enough Mickey Mouse stuff.  haha.  OK, one more picture that Hector Becerra of the LA Times took when he snuck in behind me.

Several people at work approached the following day “Were you wearing Mickey Mouse ears at the game?”   “I saw you on TV”

Yep that is me!  It is a good thing I asked for a day vacation instead of “calling in sick”  As it was I was in a little trouble at work for forgetting about a meeting on Wednesday but hey!  my vacation day got approved.

OK so the Dodgers are back in St Louis for game 6.  Clayton Kershaw against Michael Macha.  Game time at 5:30  Let’s go Dodgers!

Let’s give Kershaw some run support

Adrian Gonzales debut as a Dodger, Vin Scully will be back next year! Yankees & Red Sox in 2013

Adrian Gonzalez Debut as a Dodger

“Looks like a another perfect day!  I love LA!”   That is how Saturday 8/25/2012 turned out to be!   Adrian Gonzalez was at the game in time to be in the lineup.  Adrian comes to his  first at bat as a Dodger with Mark Ellis and El Cochito Luis Cruz on.  Next thing you know Adrian goes

A three run homerun!   Welcome to Hollywood!  Welcome to LA Adrian! 

 

There were four BOOMS at the stadium:    Giancarlo Stanton for the Marlins.  Adrian Gonzalez, Mark Ellis and Andre Ethier for the Dodgers.  

Andre Ethier breaks record of Consecutive Hits  with 10 STRAIGHT HITS

Andre tied the LA record for Consecutive Hits of  nine set by Ron Cey.  Andre then broke that record with his 10 consecutive hit in the seventh inning.  He tied a Dodger record set in 1919 by first baseman Ed Konetchy.   In addition, Andre also was a triple short of a cycle.  Mark Ellis also was short of a cycle. 

KERSHAW gets win #12

Kershaw pitched a three hitter giving up two runs and striking out eight for his 12th win.  Final score:  Dodgers 8, Marlins 2. 

VIN SCULLY WE LOVE YOU!  WE LOVE YOU MORE FOR COMING BACK NEXT YEAR!

Could Saturday night get any better?   Well yes!   Vin Scully announced that he is coming back in 2013! 

It is Vin Scully Bobblehead Thursday August 30th when the Dodgers face the Arizona D’Backs. 

And come 2013, the Dodgers finally will go to Yankee Stadium!   The Red Sox will be coming to Dodger Stadium in August of 2013.

Adrian Gonzalez, Crawford, Beckett, Punto could be Dodgers! Oh My!

My head is spinning with all the trade rumors and Dodgers moves. 

 I used to love seeing Adrian Gonzalez in San Diego and was sad to see him go to the Red Sox even if he hit well against the Dodgers.  

My twitter account was going crazy with:

The Dodgers were awarded a claim on Adrian Gonzales 

Adrian has a limited no trade clause but can’t block a move to the Dodgers

Dodgers claim Beckett

Red Sox working on deal that would send AGon, Crawford, Beckett and Punto to LA

Dodgers recalled outfielder/infielder Alex Castellano adn optioned Rubby De La Rose to AAA.

How did the entire NL pass on claiming Rubby???

De La Rosa claimed by Bluejays.  Sent down would be a PTBNL in RedSox deal

From GordonEdes:  Dodgers discussed in Red Sox deal:  De La Rosa, Loney, De Jesus, Sands and another top prospect. 

From Jaime Jarrin:  David Gonzalez, father of Adrian Gonzalez is happy of the possibility of having AGon back in California if Dodgers and Red Sox come to an agreement. 

In the meantime the Marlins are in town.  Ex-Dodger Eovaldi on the mound against Barbarroja Chad Billingsley. 

time to get ready to head to the Ravine.  My phone has been going crazy today!   It will be hard not to pick it up while I drive to the stadium as it keeps notifying me of more news.   

Update:  James Loney scratched from the original lineup.
