Yes, 1988! The last “Magical Year.” Now the writers are staring to get on the Dodger Bandwagon… driven by Yours Truly. Tony Jackson of ESPN/LosAngeles is now proclaiming what I said months ago:
On April 3, 2010 I wrote:
Forget the spring – it doesn’t mean much to these guys. They have a mission and that ’s to get back to the NL Championship and win it! That’s what they are focused on and if you want to judge this book by it’s cover, well you would be dead wrong! These guys are determined to atone for the last two “failures” in the NLCS – yes, they see them as “failures” and they are bent of succeeding. Hang on for the ride!
While I am throwing out “I told you so’s”, here’s something I wrote a few days earlier:
Jamey Carroll has proven that he is a solid hitter and can even fill in effectively at SS for short periods of time.
That happened, didn’t it? Now, I also predicted Manny would return to form and that hasn’t happened … yet.
Some of you guys have made yourself miserable with the wild imaginings of how horrible the Dodgers would possibly be. No matter what is happening between the McCourts, Frank know that he has to put an excellent product on the field in order to make money. That’s the only thing you need to know. Forget the Divorce – what will be will be. The Dodgers on the field are not part of that. We’ll know soon enough about the Dodgers future.
- Bill Shaikin’s Story in The LA Times about … well it’s about a lot of craziness, but may not as crazy as you think. However, this type of Pseudoscience is rampant with crackpots. I have no opinion.
- Clayton Kershaw is pitching deeper and deeper into games.
- On the oil well which is blowing oil all over the Gulf: I happen to know quite a bit about separation of oil and water, and BP and the Government have blown this more than the government blew Katrina, but as BD pointed out. This is not the forum. There are lots of blogs on just that. Look them up.
