Today’s game vs White Sox
Kershaw looking for Win # 1
Clayton Kershaw is still looking for his 1st Major League win. It might happen today.
If he follows Eric Stults performance, he will have a great chance in getting it.
What a great game by Eric Stults last night. Seeing him pitch in the late innings, I
was hoping for him to finish the game and he did. 4 hit shutout complete game. Well he got to finish the game with help of Russell Martin. I’m sure the Dodgers 5 runs that they got early in the game helped relaxed Stults. Knowing he had a big lead, he just needs to pitch his game. Congrats Eric!
Ozzie / Arizona
Ozzie Guillen on sharing a Glendale, Ariz. spring training facility with the Dodgers next year: “It’s going to be a White Sox town. It’s going to be black and white. Just kidding.” If he really was kidding, then that’s cool. If not, then I disagree. I know Arizona has alot of transplanted fans from all over U.S.A. Starting next year the Cactus League will have all of the N.L. West and A.L. West teams. Plus you have both Chicago teams, Colorado Rockies, Kansas City Royals, Milwaukee Brewers, Seattle Martiners and Texas Rangers. There are talks about the Cleveland Indians also joining the league soon. Out of all those teams, the Chicago Cubs own the state of Arizona. There are alot of Cubs fans. I went past this February to Mesa, Arizona to check out the Cubs practice and get some autographs and there was so many of Cubs fans. Guess what the fans were doing ? They were just watching them practice! There was no spring training game, there was nothing! Just practice! When I parked my car I noticed so many cars in the parking lot with Illinois license plates. You got alot of Senior Citizens that are from Chicago but come to Arizona to retire there. As of right now, the Cubs own the state. I don’t know if the Dodgers will have the same effect, but I know alot of fans from Los Angeles will be driving to Glendale, Arizona to watch the boys in blue. I think it was time and they will be closer to us. Glendale will be a Dodger town! Check out the following pictures. Back in November I drove to Glendale. They had a ground breaking ceremony for the Dodgers and White Sox. Scully, Jarrin, McCourt, Steiner and others were there. It was a free public event. I will share with you some pictures that I took that day. Picture # 1 is basically all sand. Picture # 2 you can see Vin Scully helping with the ground breaking. Picture # 3 Glendale Spring Training Complex.

Tonight the Los Angeles Dodgers will have a 3 game series vs the Chicago White Sox.
Before the game, the Dodgers will honor Jaime Jarrin’s 50th Anniversary as a broadcaster. That’s nice to know. Jaime is a nice person. He is the Hispanic Vin Scully. People forget that he is a Hall of Famer. Congratulations Jaime. There a couple of articles online about Jaime. Dodger thoughts has a nice interview with Jaime. The L.A. Times also has a story. Talking about hispanics, I notice the other day that the current Dodger roster doesn’t have many hispanics. I remember back in the 90’s they were a bunch in the roster. Now I only see Ramon Troncoso (Dominican) Angel Berroa (Dominican) and Luis Maza
(Venezuela) Those 3 players haven’t even been with the Dodgers full time this year. Only Troncoso is a product of the farm system. On the Disabled List, I see names of Tony Abreu (Dominican) Rafael Furcal (Dominican) and Nomar Garciaparra (Mexican-American) Of those 3 players, once again, only 1 player (Abreu) is a product from the farm system. Que onda Mike Brito ? You got to find more talent ! 🙂 Now I leave you with a Video of a clip that Troy from West Virginia was able to obtain from his famous incident in Cincinnati last week. It’s the radio version telling the Cincinnati fans that a Monster (Troy) is attacking the fans (It starts around 30 seconds) It sounds like it’s Thom Brennaman and Jeff Brantley broadcasting. “It’s a Monster, a Dodger fan, Oh boy, Police are there, he is a big big man” Hahahaha ! LMAO !
I’m out, peace!
