Dodgers lost today 12-0. It was one of those games, no hitting, no pitching, no fielding. There were three errors in the game including one given to Dee Gordon who was celebrating his 24th birthday. I don’t know what the official scorer was looking at because Dee Should not had gotten that error. It should have gone to Billingsley. I like Billz but how could Dee catch that throw? Anyway, let’s put that game behind us.
Dodgers are back in town! They play three with the Braves. The matchups are:
Monday: Jurrjens against Capuano
Tuesday: minors against Harang
Wednesday: Beachy against Lily.
I was showing my brother Vic that Lily is 2-0. He was saying “Lily is 2-0? He just came off the DL!” Then he said in Spanish “Que suerte tienen los que no se bañan” LOL. That means lierary “How lucky are those that don’t take a shower”, It applies to those that without having much “qualities”, Lucky Lady smiles at them and they do well. LOL. Vic said it laughing.
Thursday is an off day and I need one as I have a problem with my car driver’s side window. Friday’s matchup was supposed to be Kershaw against Strasburg but because of the Nationals rain delay, this is what MLB At Bat is showing for the matchups:
Friday: Detwiler against DBD (Why is it showing this?, I thought it was Kershaw)
Saturday: Strasburg against DBD (again, why? Maybe Kershaw has been moved here? )
Sunday: DBD, against TBD. Busy pitcher this TBD
Rest in peace Joyce Terry.
I was very sad to find out during Opening Week that Joyce Terry, a member of the Top Deck family passed away. My deepest condolences to Carl. Carl and Terry celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary at Dodger Stadium last year on June 20, 2011.

Carl & Joyce Terry at Dodger Stadium celebrating their 62nd Anniversary
The picture is a picture I took of Carl’s pictures. The inscription says June 20, 2011. LA Dodgers 4, Tigers 0. Clayton Kershaw pitched a 2 hit shutout striking out 11.
I will miss seeing Joyce with her pink baseball hat. She was battling cancer but you could not tell seeing her walking down those stairs to her seat.
The first time I met Carl and Joyce was at Vero Beach in 2008. We were in the long line at the gift shop when Terry asked me if I had been to the Cardinals Dodger game the day before at Roger Dean Stadium. I said Yes! Then he said “Were you waiving a Dodger towel?’ Again I said Yes! We started talking about the Dodgers, where we sit at the Stadium. When I said “I have season tickets in the Top Deck. He said “So do we!” It is a small world.
Here is a picture of their plane. They used to travel everywhere. Carl said they had another trip scheduled to Europe this year. It was such a joy watching them together. I can’t flip this picture so is going that way.
Rest in peace Joyce. Carl mentioned that Joyce name fitted her because she brought him and everyone else joy.
Happy Jackie Robinson Day everyone! Heading to Dodger Stadium soon. Dodgers are 8-1 to start the 2012 season and I have not missed a game! Dodgers are going on the road next (no, I am not going) to Milwaukee and Houston.
Here is a Jackie Robinson picture when he was at Pasadena Junior College late 1930′s.

Love the Dodgers are now letting season ticket holders into the stadium earlier than the rest of the fans just like in some other stadiums.

I kept getting texts that I was on TV.
My cousin Edgar’s wife Jeannie tagged me on this picture that she took of the TV screen
Magic was at Opening Day in San Diego along with Frank McCourt & his GF. This picture taken by my friend Lorena (LuvtheDodgers23). Notice Frank’s GF eyeing Matt Kemp
I was having a hard time with my camera. Jon SooHoo of Dodgersphotog.mlblogs.com told me I bounced the camera too many times. Actually it started working better after I had him look at it. Still, I did not take good pictures from afar but luckly my friend Lorena did so I am sharing her pictures:
Opening Day at Petco. Second time Lorena and I go to Petco Park Opening Day against the Dodgers. First time was in 2009.
SkinnySwag! Dee Gordon. I saw him after the game and I told him I have him in my fantasy Baseball team. He said “I am not doing too well” I said that is OK, to early. Lorena pointed to her heart and said “We Love you!” The following day I saw him again after the game and he had done so good that I stopped him and excitedly I told him “You did great today Dee!” He in turned gave me a hug and told me “Thank you ma’am” that so cute of him.
Clayton Kershaw was fighting the stomach flu but he insisted to Mattingly that he still wanted to pitch on Opening Day. He could only go three innings because of the stomach flu. He also collected the first hit for the Dodgers with a double. his ERA: 0.00 and his batting average: 1.000.
Because of the day off today, Kershaw is starting the Home Openner tomorrow afternoon.
Josh Lindblom came in after Kershaw and collected the win. Javy Guerra got the save. Thanks Lorena for the pictures.

Lorena and I. ‘yeah, I did not noticed before that I closed my eyes.

Happy Opening Day Eve! Happy Opening Day Eve! Happy Opening Day Eve! Can’t wait to be at Dodger Stadium tomorrow!
Tommy Lasorda (2) days till Dodgers Opening Day at Petco Park!
One of the topics last month for our monthly company meeting in the cafeteria was talking about the company 2012 season tickets. They started with:
Our Meeting with Tommy
They were only looking for pictures of Tommy but the guy doing that part of the presentation was surprised to find a picture of Tommy with me. He decided to use it. There are about 500 employees here so I had a few stop me asking me “So you know Tommy?” lol.
Charlie Dressen (7) days till Dodgers Opening Day at Dodger Stadium.
Charlie Dressen was a Brooklyn Dodgers coach from 1939 – 1946. He took over as manager in 1951. After leading the Dodgers to a World Sereis in 1952 and 1953 -but losing both times to the Yankees, he demanded a three-year contract from team principals Walter O’Malley and buzzie Bavasi. Instead, O’Malley fired him and replaced with Walter Alson, a man who would go on to manager the club for more than two decades, always on a one-year contract.
Is the Freeway Series with the Anaheim Angels. Dodgers lost the first game last night at Anaheim by the score of 12-3. Ugh.
I am going to tonight’s game but I can’t get there for batting practice. Kristen of http://blithescribe.mlblogs.com/ will be there. I’ll will try to go see her after I say hi to a lot of people at the stadium. I am excited to see Our Lady of Chavez Ravine again.

WOOHOOO!!! Can’t wait. In the meantime I went to see UCLA play USC at Dodger Stadium last night. Here are the 2012 pocket schedules we picked last night at Dodger Stadium.
Look at the upcoming promotion for Mother’s Day! An Andre Ethier bag
I had a great time sitting with Dee, Kevin, Ernest & Arturo. Arturo in the USC sweatshirt. Kevin is the one behind the green hat & Ernest with his Dodger hat.
Checking back at the Dodger Open House last year http://crzblue.mlblogs.com/2011/01/27/dodgers-select-a-seat-open-house-and-sabr-day/ it coincided with SABR Day. This year again Dodgers Open House coincides with SABR day (Saturday 1/28/2012) so why not have it at Dodger Stadium?
The Dodgers annual Select a Seat, an event for season ticket holders, started Thursday 1/26/2012 and it will conclude with the Open House on Saturday 1/28/2012. It is our first chance to have a Dodger dog at the stadium. Don’t they just taste better at the Stadium. The Dodgers sent us this picture of the sunrise at Dodger Stadium:
Although I was not feeling well, It was great seeing my Dodger fan friends there like William (Deuce’s dad), Dee, Sylvia and Jeanine to name a few. Also Darryl and Leslie who recently became season ticket holders. Jeanine and I met Darryl at the SABR Fall AFL conference. Darryl said that we convinced him to get season tickets. Welcome to the Dodger fan family Darryl & Leslie. Other friends like Lorena, Rosie and Rene will go to tomorrow. Will miss them.
SABR Day Saturday 1/28/2012. I was going to the SABR website at http://sabr.org/ when I ran into this picture! haha, that is me chatting with yes, SABR members, the most knowledgeable baseball fans. Down below in a Tiger hat is Max, another very knowledgeable fan.
If you can make it go SABR Day. There are many locations that are hosting SABR Day from Washington to Vermont to Toronto, to Puerto Rico. For more information go to http://sabr.org/sabrday:
SABR Day is an annual event that brings together SABR members and friends on the same day, regardless of where they live. The third annual SABR Day will be held on January 28, 2012. Regional SABR meetings are open to all baseball fans — though we encourage you to join SABR if you like what you find — and are usually free to attend. Guest speakers often include current and former baseball players, managers, umpires, executives, scouts, writers and authors.
In Seattle, SABR Day will be held in conjuction with the Mariners FanFest. In Minneapolis, the chapter will participate with the TwinsFest. in Arizona it will be at Tempe Diablo Stadium, in New York at the New York Public library. Check the site for more information. I counted 39 locations.
Looking forward to the event at La Habra library. I have never been to this library and I love visiting new libraries! From SABR:
Former Milwaukee Braves All-Star catcher Del Crandall will be joining us for SABR Day at the La Habra Library. High school coach Eddie Alvarez will speak and Eric Dearborn will present photographs of final games at various ballparks. Authors Daryl Grigsby (“Celebrating Ourselves: African-Americans and the Promise of Baseball”) and Ron Selter (on .400 hitters) will also speak.
(note to me: grr…second time Ido this post as I lost my original post).
I have not created a new post since November 2nd when I posted about our three Dodgers -Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Clayton Kershaw winning Gold gloves.
What a happy day in Los Angeles yesterday when it was announced that Clayton Kershaw had won the NL Cy Young Award! I was anxiously waiting for the results on Thursday. I was busy with a Webinar at work with phone and computer busy but I was keeping an eye on my droid. Sure enough it started beeping with the good news. But in addition to the good news there was an email from the Dodgers inviting us season ticket holders to attend the conference on the field of Dodger Stadium. What was I to do when I had taken the train to work and I was still in the middle of the webinar? Good thing it ended promptly at noon and there were no further questions.
the email said the conference was to start promptly at 1:30 p.m and that fans could start arriving at 12:30 p.m. I called to see if the company car was available. I was lucky! It was available! I then headed to see my boss and told him I had an emergency and had to leave but would be back later on.
What a great day being back at Dodger Stadium! Clayton Kershaw was there with his wife Ellen. Matt Kemp and James Loney were also there. Maury Wills was also there. Prior CY Young award winners Don Newcombe & Fernando Valenzuela were also there. Dodgers who have won the Cy Young: Don Newcombe (1986) Don Drysdale (1962), Sandy Koufax (1963, ’65. ’66), Mike Marshall (1974), Fernando Valenzuel (1981), Orel Hershiser (1988), Eric Gagne (2003) and Clayton Kershaw (2011).
Congratulations Clayton Kershaw!
What a great day it was Friday night when Vin Scully announced that he is coming back next year for his 63rd year with the Dodgers! At the time of the announcement the Dodgers were losing 1-0. Next inning the Dodgers like if they knew, stared hitting.
Dodgers score 6 runs in the 7th with Matt Kemp launching his 30th home run to join Raul Mondesi as the only members of the 30-30 club. Matt Kemp now has 31 stolen bases.
After the game I just had to go tell Vin Scully thank you for making the decision to come back for one more season. We Dodger fans are blessed to have Vin Scully with us for 62+ years. Here is the short video that my friend Lorena taped:
Thank you Lorena!
Here is another video telling Vin we Love him.
Well I am off to Dodger Stadium early today as I am a volunteer for SABR today to recruit new members. Come stop by in the Reserved section.
I leave tomorrow morning for New York! I am excited about my trip! I will be staying with my friend Abby who I met at the SABR41 convention in Long Beach, CA. Abby is a Yankee fan. Yankees are away so what she planned first is to watch a Brooklyn Cyclone game on Thursday evening.
The forecast while I am there is: Isolated thunder storms. Thunder storms is one thing that I am afraid of but I’ll try not to have it bother me *crosses fingers*
Saturday we will be going to Citi Field for a SABR/Baseball Prospectus event. Details here http://sabr.org/node/2339 then watch the Mets against the Brewers. Abby convinced me to go after she so nice to offer for me to stay with her. I don’t know what else she has made plans for but whatever it is I am looking forward to it all!
The Beer Road Trip for my Dodgers and some Dodger fans.
My boys are in Milwaukee until Thursday, then they fly to Colorado for a three game weekend series then is on to ST Louis. I was trying to workout my flight to maybe stop at Milwaukee first or St Louis at the end but too complicated. My friend William (Deuce’s dad) told me “Emma, I got tickets for you if you want to go to St Louis. He is on the road to St Louis. Last time I checked he was in Oklahoma, home of Matt Kemp. Here is Deuce:
I’ve taken a tour of Coors Brewery in Colorado and of Anheuser Bush when I was in St Louis but never been to Milwaukee. Friend Cindy (see her Dodgers tatoo) and her husband are driving to Colorado to see the Dodgers there.
Friend Cynthia who is an usher at Dodger Stadium is also going to Colorado but she is landing there then renting a car to go to Mount Rushmore. I never been there. I might run into her in Denver as I am making a stop there. She might be catching a game on her way back to Colorado. You all have a safe trip and see you all back at Dodger Stadium!
Start spreading the news….New York New York..
In this current homestand, the Dodgers are 1-5. Terrible homestand so far. They got swept by the Reds and they were on the verge of being swept by the Astros! Imagine that! The Astros who have the worst record in baseball. They avoided the sweep by winning 1-0 on Sunday. We tried going to play catch on the field after the game but the lines to get to the stadium were huge so we left.
Now Dodgers start inter-league with the Detroit Tigers, then the Angels come to town. I believe Kristen from http://mlblogsblithescribe.wordpress.com/ will come to Dodger Stadium for one of those games. I hope to meet her. I will miss the game on Sunday since my friend LuvtheDodgers23 and I will take the red eye on Saturday night. Saturday is Photo Day at Dodger Stadium.
But first The Tigers are in town. Tonight Bill Slayback will sing the National Anthem and God Bless America. I talked to Bill during one of the SABR www.sabr.com meetings where he was a speaker. He said he was a little nervous to sing at Dodger Stadium and that he might change his mind. I hope he did not. I am looking forward to hearing him sing.
In late 1973, as Hank Aaron was closing in on Babe Ruth’s home run record, Detroit Tigers pitcher Bill Slayback released this tribute to Hammering Hank. Slayback wrote the music and the lyrics were penned by legendary Tigers announcer Ernie Harwell, a one-time Atlantan who, in the 1940s, had announced Atlanta Crackers games on WSB radio.
Wednesday is another Throwback weekday game. Sadly I won’t be making this one. My boss is on vacation so I’ll listen to the game while working. I’ll miss the throwback uniforms that the Tigers will wear but I’ll catch the wonderful pictures that Jon SooHoo or Juan OCampo take at http://dodgersphotog.mlblogs.com/
So Saturday night we head to Minnesota to watch the Dodgers! Hope they can beat the Twins. We are excited about the trip. I also want to go see the statue from the Mary Tyler Moore Show. I want to go there and take a picture while I also toss my hat. I don’t have a hat like in the picture but I’ll toss my Dodger hat or this blue hat that LuvtheDodgers23 got me! I know…a lot of fans of that show have done that but I want to do it too!
I just learned that the type of hat that Mary Tyler Moore used is called a Tam or a Tammy. From wikipedia:A Tam o’ Shanter (often abbreviated Tam or TOS) is a Scottish style hat originally worn by men. The hat is named after a character in a poem written by Robert Burns in 1790.
I hope to meet Randy from http://heirloom.mlblogs.com/ in Minnesota.
Let’s go Dodgers! Let’s Go!!!
Now I got that theme song from the Mary Tyler Moore show in my head “Who can turn the world on with her smile?…..
