9-1-08 MLB & Dodgers Notes

3 game series – Los Angeles Dodgers vs San Diego Padres

I guess there is a chance. Since the Dodgers were able to take 2 out 3 from Arizona. But isn’t it embarrasing that they are not playing well ? I’m disappointed in this team. I don’t see the difference of having Joe Torre or Grady Little managing this team. Torre should of fielded his best team first. Who cares how much money you make or how old you are. He gave other players a preference. Will 2009 be the year that Andre Ethier is your everyday outfielder ? Or once again, will he have to prove himself  ? Fighting time with Pierre and Jones ? I just get upset about this Outfield situation. Jones is coming back next year (it was a 2 year contract) and Pierre is here for 3 more years ! So once again, the talented Ethier or Kemp will be on the bench. That’s not even thinking if the Dodgers get Ramirez back. Then what do you do ? I don’t think anyone will trade for Pierre. Even if they pay some of his salary. It’s going to be a interesting off-season. Anyways, let’s see if we can get back into 1st place before it’s too late.

    Hi, Roberto.

    Thanks for checking out my blog. You’re right – it’s not that hard to be surrounded by Dodgers fans (Angels fans and their rally monkey are worse)! BUT I did have a bad experience a few years ago when the Yanks came to LA to play the Dodgers for an interleague series. I was wearing my Yankees gear (naturally) and a huge guy behind me started yelling “Yankees &*^!” in my ear. I thought they only got on Giants fans. Wrong. After the game, in the parking lot, I heard it even worse from every Dodgers fan I passed. At least no one dumped beer on me. I guess that’s something! Anyhow, I’m rooting for the Dodgers to take the AL West, now that Torre and Bowa and Mattingly are there. They should bring the D’s good luck!

    What can I say Jane ? I guess every team has their bad fans and good fans. Some can be rude and others can be respectful to the opponent. I do remember about that Yanks/Dodgers series. It was great. Dodgers took 2 out 3 games if I remember. Good luck with your book.
