Take a look at Vin Scully Bobblehead. Matt Kemp Returns. Infield Bobblehead giveaway tonight

Thursday August 30, 2012 is Vin Scully Bobblehead Day! The bobblehead will be given to the first 50,000 valid tickets. Here is the picture the Dodgers posted today:

From email from the Dodgers:
The only way to guarantee tickets to this game, and the Sandy Koufax Bobblehead game on Tuesday, August 7, is with a season ticket plan or the 10-game Flex Plan. Individual tickets will not be made available to the general public. The Flex Plan allows you to pick the games you want to attend during the remaining Dodgers home schedule, with tickets starting at just $11.

Dodgers dropped the first game with the Brewers 3-2. Harang took the loss and Marcum the win.

Is the Infield bobblehead tonight! looking forward to seeing the whole infield of Lopes, Garvey, Cey & Russell all together.

Fiers (0-0) goes against Eovaldi (0-0). Eovaldi was brought over because of Lilly going to the 15 day DL.

It is also the return of Matt Kemp! You can be sure Dodger fans will be chanting louder “MVP”

Dodgers Zizling Hot Stove Baseball.

Fist of all, congratulations to the Phillies and their fans!   You are the better team.  Good luck!

Now let the hot stove begin.   Ned and company should start working on the 2010 team now.  He got a lot of work to do.  

I want pitchers that can go more than 4 innings.   I want pitchers that can pound the strike zone.  

I want a better option at 3rd base.   Casey Blake did not deliver in the postseason.  Can we undo this trade and get back Carlos Santana? and who else did we give there?  Meloan I believe.    

Which Rafael is the real deal, the one that played against the Cardinals or the Phillies.    

Manny.  Is Manny done?   At times, he looked awful swinging.  

Russell has not been the same since making the All-Star game a couple of years back.  His production has been regressing.     

Billingsley won 9 games to start the season.  Was it his leg injury that stopped him in the second half?   

Broxton will be fine.   Even with his blown save, I’ll take him.  He will get better but you do need a short memory.  

Kemp and Ethier are progressing nicely but can Kemp learn to be more patient at the plate?   

Who’s on second?   I think we saw the last of Hudson so I am glad that he homered.   So who plays second  Hu?, DeWitt.   BTW, how is Ivan DeJesus progressing?   he had a bad break (leg) back in Spring Training.

Loney needs to step it up.   We need more power from a first baseman.  

We need an ACE starter who can go deep into a game. 

Bullpen was great up until facing the Phillies but they were overworked. 

Who do we bring back?  Wolf, Garland or Padilla? 

What is going to happen now that the McCourts are splitting?  oh oh, what a way to start the hot stove with Frank McCourt firing the CEO, Jaime McCourt.    

 

  

First Game against the Cubs and THINK CURE Weekend!

First of all, great win last night against the Cubs!   Weaver who started for the injured Hiroki Kuroda, kept us in the game going 51/3 innings.  His ERA as a starter is now 3.13.  Good job Weaver!!   Russell who has been struggling, hit a grand slam in the 6th!    We asked for a curtain call.   Keep it going Russ!   

At 8:09 PM,  I get a message  that there is a new comment in my blog.  The message was from ADucker at http://dodgerstrends.mlblogs.com/  If you have not checked his blog, check it out!  He gives some great analysis with supporting statistics!.    I have never met ADucker who lives in Delaware, but I guess he has seen a few of my pictures.   anyway he posted the following comment:  

I think I just saw you at the game on TV, Emma.  In the 2nd inning with Furcal at the plate on ball 3 to make it a 3-2 count the camera shows either you or your twin sitting next to a young kid with a white shirt. I took a screen capture of it just for fun.

I was like Wow!   that is funny!  Here is the screen picture:
