Dodgers lost to the Cardinals. It was another frustrating night at Dodger Stadium with the team lack of hitting.
The highlight of the game on Thursday: the Cool-A-Coo! It hit the spot and brought back so many memories back when I used to watch Fernando pitch, back when Scioscia was behind home plate, back when the team was known as “The Big Blue Wrecking Crew“
Another highlight last night: Hanging out with friends especially Lore and little Rachel
Here is Rachel again. She is a cutie. She and her sister Elizabeth and her parents are season ticket holders. I’ve been seeing since they were babies.

Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium
Saturday I am looking forward to attending the Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium. In addition to meeting many of Baseball Prospectus personalities, Vin Scully will also make a special appearance!
There will also be a question and answer session with industry guests including Los Angeles Dodgers Assistant GM, Amateur and International Scouting Logan White.
The private event is sold out so I am glad that I signed up!
So I was remembering reading about the time Hilda Chester colored her hair red to change the Dodgers luck. They went on to win that day.
I have not had time to post here and after the Dodgers performance, I was a little frustrated.
Dodgers lost the two game series with the Diamond Backs at Arizona. Now they are back at Dodger Stadium but they have not played well at home! Well, they have not play well on the road either but the home record is worst.
Something got to give since The Cardinals have not done well either. They got swept by the Padres! The Padres are playing very well.
Somebody got to score starting tonight! I was telling a friend at work “The Dodgers can’t score even with pockets full of bills in a whorehouse” haha can I say that here?
I love my Cardinal fan friends but I hope your team goes down tonight!
I wonder if Cardinal girl is going to any of the games.
Let’s Go Dodgers Let’s Go!
I am heading to the stadium soon! It is Blanket night although is hot here in the Southland.
Josh Becket faces Lynn.
EXTRA EXTRA! The Cool -A Coo’s are back at Dodger Stadium! That can cool me off!

p.s. I am excited about the Baseball Prospectus event at Dodger Stadium on Saturday!
Getting to the stadium early for batting practice you meet a lot of fans. Last night on Sandy Koufax bobblehead night, after the 7th inning stretch we noticed Michael who we usually see during BP, was standing behind us. He was asking “Who did I miss during BP? We told him ”Maury Wills was signing” He has gotten Maury Wills autograph before. We also told him Sandy Koufax did not appear to be at the stadium that night. He then started telling us why he was late. Here is his story:
“I got to the stadium early today (8/7) because it was not just a bobble head game, but the Sandy Koufax bobble head game. The most popular bobble head, right up there with the upcoming Vin Scully bobble head.
I was able to park on Stadium Way in front of the Barlow Hospital, and around 4:40pm, walked over to wait with the other fans at the Elysian Park entrance, where we would be let in at 5:10pm.
I saw three boys petting and playing with a young kitten who was just laying on the sidewalk just inside the Dodger Stadium parking gate. I asked if it was their kitten and they said no, they had just found it there. One of the boys was able to pick the kitten up and it seemed pretty tame. I picked the kitten up, and it appeared to be a boy and about eight weeks old. I went to the front of the line with the kitten and told the security guard about it. I said I wanted to take the kitten home, but wondered if someone at Dodger Stadium could keep it somewhere until the end of the game. The security officer said probably not, and pointed me to the main parking hut, where the security guards let people into the stadium. I told them my story, and they said they couldn’t help, but did offer me some water for the kitten.
My options seemed to be to have security call animal services and pick up the kitten, or leave the kitten in my car until the game was over some five or six hours later.
Neither opinion seemed reasonable, as I didn’t want the kitten taken to the pound, nor did I want to leave it in a car for hours when it was about 90 degrees out. I also didn’t think leaving the kitten where it was found was very safe, as it was next to the 10 lanes of traffic where people drive in and out of Dodger Stadium.
While my daughter Dianna kept the kitten company in the car, I went to the Barlow Hospital but they couldn’t help either. I called the Dodger Fan Assistance line and they also could not help me.
I ended up calling my wife Donna, and she drove from Sherman Oaks, while I drove to back to Griffith Park, so we could meet half way at the zoo parking lot, and I passed the kitten over to her so she could take him home.
We ended up making it back to the game and getting our bobble heads, but missed batting practice and the chance to get autographs. A small price to pay for saving a life. The kitten is doing fine. We’re going to call him “Koufax.”
I thought the All-Star break would work wonders for the Dodgers. With Andre & Kemp back I thought things were going to start looking better. but I better stop looking thru this:
Like the LA Times pointed out, they have lost 18 of the last 24! They ended the first half
game in first place but now they are:
Two games back of the Giants.
I thought the Dodgers were happy to have me back at Dodger Stadium after I went to the SABR convention
they lost two out of three from the Padres. They lost the first game to the Phillies and tonight the kid Fife has been called from Albuquerque to replace Billingsley who has gone on the DL with elbow soreness. the 25 year old Fife will make his MLB debut against gulp…Halladay.
Let’s Go Dodgers!
Let’s Go Fife!
Yeah, I am still looking thru the colored glasses.
Is Beach Chair night tonight!
I anderstand we will get a voucher for the chair and we go pick it up after the game. For those that only come for the giveaway, they will turn around, pick up their giveaway and leave. Let’s see how this works picking up the giveaway AFTER the game. At least the giveaway are not bats or baseballs givin prior to the game.
With a combination of away and home games, the Dodgers are playing 20 consecutive games without a day off before the All-Star break.
It started with the Dodgers going to Oakland for three game where they got swept.
Then they headed to Anaheim where they lost two out of three.
After Sunday’s game they took a bus to Ontario to hop on the flight to San Francisco to play three there.
After the three in San Francisco they come home to play a four game series with the Mets starting Thursday.
Come Monday the Reds come to Dodger Stadium to play three. The Fourth of July game on Wednesday starts at 6:10.
After the Fireworks game, is off to the airport to start a four game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
WOW! a tough test ahead for Mattingly and the Dodgers. If they can turn it aorund and do well they can do this:
By then, Matt Kemp should be ready to come back and we can see him doing this:
Ever since some letters from the Think Blue sign got damaged from the wind, we have not seen the sign back.
Here is Rachel, who sits in front of us with her mom, dad & sister. I took the picture the same day we hiked to the Think Blue sign.
I hope they bring it back. I won’t talk about the Think Cure sign but I hope in time, the new Dodger ownership does a charity radiothon with auctions such as a chance to meet Vin Scully and other unique Dodgers experiences like we had before.
Anyway, since we don’t have a sign, I decided to post pictures of the time that a friend and I hiked to the Think Blue sign. It was after a playoff game that we had lost in 2009. We were at the right field restaurant after the game waiting for the traffic to slow down. We were looking at the fans hiking up the Think Cure sign since they open that area during playoff for extra parking. One friend said “Let’s walk up to the Think Blue” sign so two of us did.
The hard luck Eovaldi with a record of 0-2 and ERA of 1.82 goes against Milone Wednesday night.
Las year during Social Septiember I was watching batting practice when William read a twitter that said “The first person that goes upstairs by the Vin Scully Press box will get to do be on the field to say “It’s Time for Dodger Baseball” He thought it was too late to go upstairs, but I told him if you don’t want to go check I’ll check so I rushed up the stairs. Sure enought I was the first one! so I got to say what Vin Scully says at the beginning of each Dodger game, “It’s Time for Dodger Baseball!”
I had not gotten the video until recently so I uploaded it.
Thank you to the Dodgers and to William! I love you William
Here are two pictures from that day that I got thanks to Jon SooHoo. Thank you Jon!
The White Sox with Robin Ventura are at Dodger Stadium starting tomorrow. Kershaw goes to the mound against Sale. Let’s Go Dodgers! It’s Time for Dodger Baseball!
Dodgers lost the first game with the Angels 3-2. Isringhausen won it and Kenley Jansen lost it. Kenley is in my baseball fantasy team, Los Locos Azules.
BUT! we know pitchers got to have a short memory. Kenley came back on Tuesday and won the game. Dodgers were trailing on this one but with the score 2-2 (after Ethier tying the game), ex-Angel Juan Rivera went Boom! with a 3-run homerun! We went crazy at the stadium!
It was also Mike Sciocia’s bobblehead night. I don’t think the bobblehead resembles him but I am glad to have it. Scioscia used to be a favorite of mine back when I started attending games. Always had a soft spot for catchers and pitchers.
Not a good day for honorees at the ballpark since Jaime Jarrin who was honored the night before did not get a win for his team. But it was a special night with all the tributes paid to Jaime Jarrin.
After throwing out the first pitch along with his son Jorge Jarrin and his grandson Stefan Jarrin, Jaime went to the mike to say “It’s Time for Dodger Baseball” but first he said it in Spanish “Es La Hora de el Beisbol de los Dodgers”
Monday was also the day the Kings won the Stanley Cup! 50,559 showed up at Dodger Stadium even with the Kings playing at Staple Center.
For tonight Dodger game, the Stanley Cup Champions Los Angeles Kings are bringing the Stanley Cup trophy and will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch. Congratulations Kings! Let’s Go Dodgers! Let’s Go!
Chris Capuano must love Dodger Stadium. He i 5-0 at Dodger Stadium. With Sunday’s win he improved his record to 7-1. Mateo Treanor, 36, hit a home run. Is Mateo Treanor Capuano’s personal catcher?
Dodgers improved to a record of 32-15, best record in baseball! Congratulations to Jerry Hairston Jr.,who had a career-high five hits with one double and four singles.
And what about Elian Herrera? He has a nine game hitting streak.
I LOVE LOVE this A.J. Ellis video with Clayton Kershaw
AJ can do it all! Vote for AJ to the All-Star! #AJ2KC
Happy Veterans Day everyone! Thank you all that have served our country!
