10 Days till Dodgers Opening Day at Petco Park!

10 days till Dodgers Opening Day at Petco Park!  Also 10 days till I take vacation!   Yes! I will be in San Diego for the four game series.   The Dodger schedule works perfect with a four game series, followed by a day off on Monday then Opening Day at Dodger Stadium so Clayton Kershaw gets to pitch both Opening Days!  

10 days.  Hall of Famers that wore # 10 and they have had their number retired are :  Sparky Anderson, Phil Rizzuto, Andre Dawson & Ron Santo.  

I was listening to Jaime Jarrin and Pepe Yniguez broadcasting the Dodger game on Sunday.   It was odd that there was no English transmission.   Anyway, Pepe mentioned that Ron Santo never saw a no hitter.   Pepe also mentioned that he has never seen a no-hitter.  Neither have I.  I have seen them on TV but never in person.  

As I was going thru the retired numbers per team, I noticed that Seattle and Colorado are the only teams that have never retired a number.   Both teams have numbers out of circulations like #24 Ken Griffey Jr. and #14 Lou Piniella.  For The Rockies, no one has worn Larry Walker’s #33, but probably  #17 Todd Helton will be the first number retired for the Rockies.

P.S.  After a year in hiatus, I am back to playing Fantasy baseball!   So my team, Los Locos Azules are back!!   I drafted last but I am happy with my team. Here is what I have:

C Carlos Santana,  1B Joey Votto,   2B Howie Kendrick,   3B Aramis Ramirez,   SS Dee Gordon,   OF Jacoby Ellsbury,   OF Emilio Bonifacio,   PF Yoenis Cespedes,   Util Alex Rios,   Util Adam Dunn,   BN Ryan Howard,   BN Paul Goldschmidt,   BN Jason Bay,   BN Chase Utley.    SP Zach Greinke,   SP James Shields,   RP Craig Kimbrel ,   RP Heith Bell,   P Brandom Morrow,   P Kenley Jansen,   P Francisco Liriano,   P Brandom McCarthy,   BN Jonathan Broxton.
