The Dodgers are now 6-1 with a 3-2 win over the Pirates. Chris Capuano looked great through 5, but got in trouble in his last inning, clearly running out of gas. Hopefully, he can extend his arm strength so that he can go 6 or 7 innings. If he’s going to do it, this would be the year. He certainly exhibited this same pattern last year, but now with one more year removed from surgery, hopefully he can build his arm strength. He’ll never be a complete game guy, but 6 strong innings would be good.
Of course, now we hear the “yeah, buts:”
- “Yeah, they won, but the only played the Pirates and Padres. Let’s see what they do again a real team.“
- “Yeah, but, they have been lucky.“
- “Yeah, but Loney and Uribe aren’t hitting.”
- “Yeah, but, “Yeah, but, “Yeah, but.”
The last I checked, the Pirates and the Padres are in the NL, not AA. Enjoy the ride.
We have owners who will get more players if needed. We have a better locker room. We have a more mature Andre Ethier who is not sulking and rude (as of now).
We have an energized, excited bunch of guys, and the fans still don’t show up.
Yeah, but Frank McCourt still owns the team. BS – The Dodgers are off to their best start in 31 years and the Stadium is only half full? These guys need the fans. If you are a Dodger fan, get your butt to the Stadium.
I’m traveling from Indiana to LA to see the Atlanta series the 23, 24, 25 of this month. You have no excuse now. These guys need you!
