9-23-08 MLB & Dodgers Notes
Bill Dwyre of the L.A. Times wrote a article about how nobody in Los Angeles cares about the Anaheim Angels. I didn’t understand the point of him writing this. I mean, why would we care ? This is a Dodgers town. It will always be. The Angels will always be in the last page compare to the Dodgers being on the front page. It’s the way it is and should be. Angels want front page exposure ? Read the O.C. Register. I have nothing against the Angels. I think they are a great team. I have met most of the players on the team and obtained their autographs. Great guys. But Dodgers own this town 🙂
Video Time! Found this video honoring Latino Dodger Legends…
What’s going ? Dodgers are now 2 1/2 games ahead of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Dodgers are off today. The Snakes play a 4 game series against the St. Louis Cardinals starting today. With a win, Arizona would only be 2 games back. With a loss, they would be 3 games back. After tonight’s game, the Dodgers and D-Backs will have the same amount of games left, which is 6 games. Arizona Schedule. Los Angeles Schedule.
I watched the game on t.v. Very nice. I think they did a nice job in bringing all those old Yankees. It was cool. Now that Yankee Stadium will no longer host a game, Dodger Stadium becomes the third oldest park in the Major Leagues.
Fenway Park 1912
Wrigley Field 1916
Dodger Stadium 1962
Video Time! The end of Troy ?
Yankee Stadium will host their last game tonight vs the Baltimore Orioles. There is alot of coverage of this historic game.
Dave Anderson of the NY Times wrote a article about the last game of Ebbets Field and the last game of Yankee Stadium.
Video Time! The Dodgers had alot of sad moments in Yankee Stadium. Except ’55
Dodgers have 9 games left. Diamondbacks have 10 games left. We are leading the Snakes by 3 1/2 games. It’s over. Dodgers will clinch this by next week. But of course…Bill Plashke, the King of writing negative stories, just published one in the L.A. Times…
Viva Los Dodgers!
Good luck to all those that attend this event. I heard a couple of people will be signing autographs. I have no idea who will be. The usual suspects like Fernando Valenzuela and Jaime Jarrin will be there, but I hear some players might come out. I can’t make it…and I wanted to see Lalo Mora so bad. Oh well lol Hopefully next year 🙂
Video Time! I was in Mexicali, Baja California last weekend. Attending a baptism. People there are preparing the Serie del Caribe. Mexicali is the home of the Aguilas, a Winter Baseball team. The series should be fun. I might take a game or two. Back in 2005 I saw Fernando Valenzuela pitch in Mexicali. A very different atmosphere than being in Dodger Stadium. Mexicali has a huge Chinese population and while there, it reminded me of this video I saw on the Aguilas website. Funny, funny. Sorry if you don’t read spanish or understand Chinese. 🙂
Here is a pix of me inside Estadio Casas Geo, Mexicali (November, 2005)
A pix of Fernando Valenzuela warming up….
Finally, a pix of the greatest Concession Stand you will ever see ! 🙂
Dodgers win today. I’m predicting we clinch this division by next Wednesday.
The Dodgers left their Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas and signed a agreement to play again in Albuquerque. I don’t really have a opinion about this. Back in 2006 I saw a Spring Training game between the Dodgers and Mariners. I thought the park was nice but you can tell it’s not a modern park. Which looks like the Dodgers wanted. Remember, the Dodgers had a Triple-A team in New Mexico. They were called the Albuquerque Dukes. Cool name. Better than the current one, which is named Albuquerque Isotopes. Pix of me inside Cashman Field.
Soy un 7
I’m # 7 among fans that have a MLBlog 🙂 Thanks for viewing…
Video Time! Found this video…1993 Albuquerque Dukes. Home of the Triple-A Dodgers. Pedro Martinez pitches. Volume is very low…
I wish we can play the Pirates everyday….
Dodgers announce the 2009 Schedule.
Video Time ! Joe Torre…
Meet Monday & Davis
You can meet Rick Monday and Tommy Davis. Here are the Details…
Rick Monday will be signing his book at Dodger Stadium on September 19 before the Dodger game. Tommy Davis will be speaking and signing autographs at El Cholo Restaurant on September 24 at 6:30 pm. Call to make your reservation: 949.673.0777 I won’t be attending any of those events. I already have their autographs. Talking about autographs, I have yet to get a autograph this month. I missed on several events because I have been extremely busy. Hopefully, I will get some chances by the end of the month.
I want to congratulate Andre & Maggie Ethier for the birth of their first baby 🙂
Video Time! Troy just got his Beimel Bobblehead
