No matter how bleak it looks, and being down 3-1 is bleak, especially after a loss was snatched from the jaws of victory, we have to hope for a miracle. It’s a big blow, but the Dodgers have to recover and realize that victory is still attainable. Therefore, I will be watching every pitch in game 5. I am not convinced that Torre will start Padilla, but we will see. The hook will be short. I think Joe Torre should “shake it up a little.” I would reward James Loney for his play, even if a lefty is on the mound and I would consider leading off with Martin. Casey Blake is playing well in the field, but he has had no bat in the post-season. Orlando Hudson needs to play!
Tonight, is for everything! Anything CAN happen! Go Dodgers!
- Andrew Lambo continues to destroy pitching in the AFL (.478) and hit his second grand slam in a week.
- Lucas May is hitting .294 and Russ Mitchell has 3 HR, but Lambo is just out of his mind.
- Dylan Hernandez of The LA Times says that Jon Broxton has entered an infamous fraternity.
- Manny is a knucklehead, as evidenced by his leaving the bench in the 9th inning. Something tells me he may not be a Dodger next year (not because of that). I can see him getting traded to the AL with the Dodgers eating some $$$$.
