Enjoy the off day boys! You got 17 days after today without a day off! My boys golfed today at the Dodgers Dream Foundation Golf Turnament. I hope you took it easy at the tournament! I can also use a night off. Working and going to the games every night can take a toll on you so I’ll recoup today/night and get ready for the Angels this weekend!
I love the matchup for Friday night! It will be our 21 year old Clayton Kershaw who is coming off his 1 hitter against Jerred Weaver. Hopefully we will be celebrating with the fireworks after the game.
Saturday is El Lobo(Wolf) against Lackey and I will be watching the game from baseline seats on the
left right field side! We also get to try out the baseline restaurant! My friend and I gave our Top Deck seats to one of the security guards in the Top Deck who will be bringing his family.

Dodgers take 2 out of 3 from the Phillies and Marlins! Great road trip boys! Congratulations
Congratulations to our young 21 Clayton Kershaw who had a no-hitter going into the 8th inning! Of all people, our ex-Dodger Cody Ross broke the no-no with a double.
Mota was called to protect a 10-0 score but final score ended up being 12-5. Cody Ross got a grand slam. The two biggest pain in the
for the Dodgers in this homestand were two ex Dodgers: Jayson Werth & Cody Ross. The post steroid Mota is not working.
Congratulations to Juan Pierre and Mark Loretta who got 3 hits each!
Dodgers come home to play 3 with the Mets and the Angels! Yeah!
I checked out “Baseball an illustrated History” by Geoffrey C. Ward & Ken Burns from Monrovia library. This is a great read! I happen to be there for the library Grand Opening day. Ray Bradbury was scheduled to be there so I am glad I stayed to hear him. The place was packed and he was running late so I was reading this volume to Ken Burns magnificient PBS TV series. The intro is by Roger Angels and essays by Thomas Boswell, Robert W. Creamer, Gerald Early, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Bill James, David Lamb, Daniel Okrent, John Thorn, George F. Will and an interview with Buck O’Neil.
Bought a couple of used books from the Friend of the Libray and this lady said “You like to read and you are a baseball fan.”. I was not buying baseball books but I had a t-shirt with small letters reading “This is LA baseball”. She said if it was just the shirt she would not have said anything but I forgot I also had my baseball diamond pendant on. The back of the pendant reads “Diamonds are forever.”
Again, congratulations to our Dodgers! 4-2 road trip without Manny and Kuroda-san.
Jeff Weaver got his first win last night! Some might have been saying “Who is that guy on the mound?” He looked like the old Weaver that pitched for us in 2004 & 2005! Welcome guerito. I feel like singing the song “Que Onda Guero.” The only run he allowed was a wild pitch. He was limited to 75 pitches for his start but he gave us a little more.
Our bullpen was fantastic with Tron (Troncoso), Belisario, Ohman and our baby bull Jonathan Broxton.
What do you think of Torre’s comment about Weaver ?
“He said he didn’t do a good job with the leadoff hitters, but that’s pretty much why we felt good about sending him out there,” said Torre, who replaced rookie James McDonald with Weaver. “He’s done this. He’s never been one to rattle.”
Going for lucky !3! with 21 year old Kershaw against Cabrera. Both are 0-2.
On my way to the stadium now.
