Dodgers let one get away at Wrigley

I really thought the Dodgers had this Saturday game wrapped when the score was Dodgers 8, Cubs 5 but the bullpen let it get away when the Cubs scored five runs in the 8th. Final score: Cubs 10, Dodgers 8. LP: Guerier. WP: Jeff Samardzija (had to look how to spell that!)

Dodgers are now at 500 with 11 wins, 11 losses. Dodgers faired the same in the last homestand with 4 wins and 4 losses when they met with the Cardinals and Braves in a four game series with both teams. They lost the series with the Cardinals and won it against the Braves.

The last homestand saw the arrival of Jerry Sands, the minor league player of the year in 2010. Jerry got his first major league hit in his first game. We were all chanting “Jer-ry! Jer-ry! Jer-ry!” a la Jerry Springfield everytime he was coming to bat or he was recording an out at Left Fied. Jerry also got his first major league beanball (he ducked) off Tim Hudson.

I was one of the many Dodger fans that got interviewed at Dodger Stadium to give our opinion about Bug Selig taking over over seeing the Dodgers: Here is a link to the interview from KCAL channel 9 which is owned by CBS. You have to click on one of videos about fans being interviewed at the stadium

Friends on Facebook told me they saw this picture in the LA Times sport section online. I am taking a picture of Deuce with Jerry Sands.

Rubber game on this Easter Sunday is so far Dodgers 6, Cubs 2. No lead is enough with our bullpen so Go Kuroda-san! Go Dodgers! 21 game hitting streak for Andre Either!

Happy Easter Sunday!

Happy Easter. Happy Opening Day

I was like a kid awaiting the games at Dodger Stadium.   We have a new shuttle bus that takes us from Union Station to our happy place that is Our Lady of Chavez Ravine, Dodger Stadium!   I found out from Josh Rawitch, Dodger Vice President of Communication that indeed the shuttle bus started on Thursday when the Dodgers met the Indians in the first exhibition game.  

Here are my friends Oscar and Jesse (Azul4life) posing infront of one of the busses.   So good to see you guys again this year!

Thursday night, Matt Kemp signed my copy of Maple Street Press Dodgers 2010 Annual!  I highly recomend the magazine!

We lost the exhibition games, but we had fun!   Erik and I greeted Vin Scully! 

During the game, my friend Erik asked me if I wanted to go to the LA Cathedral for Easter Vigil so after the game, I dropped him and one hour later went to pick him up. 

While we were wating for the Easter Vigil to start and while enjoying a cup of coffee, we scanned donors names here.   Notice you can see the freeway below and that building across is a high school.

We ran into Sandra and Vin Scully as part of the names of donors!

See the name before Vin? Eli Broad was in the running to buy the Dodgers when the McCourts were buying the team.

Here is also Mr. & Mrs. Peter O’Malley.

Did you know that Gregory Peck final resting place is the Los Angeles Cathedral Mausoleum?

The oldest one being baptized was this 83 year old man.

Although I am Catholic, that was the first time I attended an Easter Vigil.   It is a wonderful ceremony that I hope to attend every year.  

Happy Easter everyone!

Happy Opening Day!

I am super excited to start another season!   Now is for reals!  Let the games begin! 

Let’s go Dodgers!

Let’s go Vicente Padilla!
