In the Bible book of Isiah it says:
The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them.
Jesus Christ said that if you have faith, you can move mountains. This is Reverend Timmons and that’s today’s sermon. Here comes the collection plate…
Yasiel Puig, the youngest Dodger is now their leader. He came from AA, stepped up as their leader and showed the Dodgers that mountains really could be moved.
Last night, he took a 90+ MPH fastball in the face and lived to fight another inning during which he was ejected. The Lost Angeles Guggenheims suddenly morphed back into the Los Angeles Dodgers. After seeing Puig take it in the nose and stay in the game, what else could Andre Ethier do but hit the ball out of the park?
After seeing his leader hit, Zach Greinke hit one of theirs, just like you are supposed to do – in the back, but the Arizona Headhunters came back and hit Greinke in the head, precipitating the melee.
The Dodgers found out that they didn’t always need their stars and that they could move mountains when Tim Federowicz doubled in three runs to win the game. He just missed a Grand Slam by a few feet.
One boy, er’ man has resurrected this moribund team. Was last night a significant step in getting these guys to pull together as a team?
It could be. I’m not ready to pronounce it, but it really could be the start of something special.
Yasiel Puig is alive an well in LA! I have never seen a player like him.
