AAUGH! Painful World Series for Dodger fans

Charlie_Brown_Aaugh.jpgThis is painful.   Haven’t we Dodger fans suffer enough with the dismal 2010 season the Dodgers had and the McCourt divorce?  

Now we have to put up with watching the Halloween team in the World Series.    Is painful, I tell you. 

Hopefully the hated Jints will play like the Charlie Brown team.    OK, OK, maybe it can be a little closer but with the Texas Rangers reigning supreme!  

 

 Does Bengie Molina have the inside scoop on the Giant pitching staff?   Well, read what he has to say in his MLB blog  htt://bengiemolina.mlbogs.com    This is part of what he wrote there on his blog post titled “Who Would have thought”   dated  10/23/10.  

Do I think my knowledge of the Giants will help me and the Rangers? I sure hope so. But I don’t think it will help to the degree people might think.

 I love that he keeps up with the blog.  His latest post entry was 10/26/10.  Here is how his lated post ends:

When we get back to Dallas, Yadier and Jose will be there. They’re in Puerto Rico right now but they’ll be there cheering me on for Games 3, 4 and, if we need it, 5. With me going to the World Series, now each of us Molina boys has been to two World Series each. Pretty amazing.

I’m going to try to post on the blog every day. So keep checking in!

 

Thanks Bengie!   Go Rangers!!

 

Dodgers and J I N T S Final series

Dodgers took another series by beating the J I N T S two out of three!  

Dodgers outscored the Giants 22-11.  

Highlights of the series:

  • Grand Slam by Belliard off Brad Penny 
  • Back to back homeruns by Kemp (25)and Loney (13).  For Loney that was hist first HR at home.
  • Garland pitched eight innings without allowing an earned run Saturday  
  • Randy Wolf .  With six innings he surpassed 200 innings for the first time since 2003. He’s 6-0 with a 2.41 ERA in his last eight starts, all quality starts.
  • Ethier belted his 31st homerun with a man on base for the Dodgers’ first 100 RBI season since J.D. Drew in 2006, the first 30/100 season since Adrian Beltre in 2004 and the first by a Dodgers outfielder since Shawn Green in 2002.

 

Mike, a fellow season ticket holder was showing us this coin that he received from a General in Iraq  where he has been sending Dodger giveaways and other Dodger memorabillia.


 This is one side of the coin: (that is my scorebook)
