Towels, walks and a bloop - No. 8

  As I said, when I started this, this was pretty much a running list and somewhat based on what I can recall about the game itself. This is one where I don't need to go back and look up the box...

No. 9 - Was it only 6 years ago

The Minnesota Twins was swept out of the playoffs today and have not won a game since October 5, 2004 and have not won a playoff series since they beat Oakland 3 games to 2 before meeting up with A...

Notes on Scorecard 2.0 - This Time Kelly Was The Hero

The Dodgers went from "Bad News Bears" to just Bad News for the Rockies today... Jay Gibbons is not as bad a player as Timmy Lupus but his catch in the 9th inning was almost as implausible as...

Dodgers Play Musical Chairs w/Managers

If you became a fan of the LA Dodgers anytime before 1976, from then until mid-1996, you only had two managers to deal with, Walter Alston and Tommy Lasorda.  Since then, with the announcement of...

Notes on a Dodger Scorecard

Borrowing a style from the late great Alan Malamud, here are some thoughts as we wind down into the final month of the 2010 Dodger season. Who knew that Ronald Belisario's visa trouble would be...

What will Vin, Charley and Rick talk about next week

At this point, nothing needs to be said about the Padres, no matter how they are doing it, they are continuing to win games. But at least for 5 of the Dodgers next 7 games against them, you won't have a certain player in the game for them.

Since everyone else is playing GM

Five years ago (and really doesn't 2005 seem more than five years ago), I really wanted the Dodgers to sell.  On July 21, 2005, they were 6.5 games behind the Padres, in third place and they were...

The real reason why you wanted the NL to win the All Star Game

How can someone who said the divorce is going to affect the season post this link. Again, the real story has more to do about who is arguing today (which are each side's respective family law lawyers, not the high priced civil litigation attorneys. I don't see this story being well received.

Dodgers Make A Wish Come True

From Dodgers.com "Chris Ramirez, a 17-year-old from San Bruno, Calif., had a Spring Training tryout with the Dodgers, not because he intends to make the club but because he made a wish. Ramirez, who has an inoperable brain tumor, asked to try out with the Dodgers and the Make-a-Wish Foundation made it happen."

This probably won't change the trip but you have to wonder if they keep getting aftershocks will the Dodgers/MLB want to take that risk?

Where's the outrage?

Sure Manny gets headlines but Kuroda also said today he may retire after his contract is up this year. My hunch, the big story will be how the Dodgers are handling the series with the Yankees.
