Long Road to Nowhere

I did not watch the game tonight and I hope you did not either. Ok, I sort of did.  I watched Gameday because you could not pay me to watch this team on television right now. Something inside of me said that if I don’t watch this series, we will win these two and set [...]

The Truth Hurts

I don’t even know whether to laugh or cry.  Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse: Victorino-     0-3 Gonzalez-      0-4 Kemp-            0-5 Ramirez-        0-4 Ethier-             0-4 The biggest game of the year and this is our performance?  Not going to win [...]

Missed Opportunities

The bottom of the 10th summed it up perfectly… Agon-strikeout Kemp-strikeout Hanley-strikeout Time is running out.  Tonight was a must win game leading 3-1 going into the 8th and we blew it. Will this team ever find chemistry? Will we ever go on that long win streak?  Maybe we are saving it for San Fran?  [...]

The spark that lit the flame

Hold on tight boys! This is going to be one fun ride! Did any of you think the bums would acquire Agon, Hanley, Victorino and Beckett without a major speed bump?  It HAD to happen. The overly optimistic David Caldwell is back! Listen, September is here, we are currently undefeated in this month….these guys know [...]

Turn the Page

September could not have come soon enough. August was a disaster, 14-14. We can’t play any worse then we are right now, can we? This crap on the field right now is just that, crap! Embarrassing, Humiliating! Kemp looks like he is dazed, confused and has no clue where he is. Someone needs to be [...]

Patience

What I think we have here is a major identity crisis and it may take a sweep in Colorado to figure it out.  You have a bunch of superstars with egos the size of Coors Field and it might take a series for them to “get it”.  What “it” is, I don’t know. I am [...]

Today was a good day…..

The biggest news of the day is that Vin Scully is going to be back in the booth next year.  For me personally, the news erased the loss from today and turned it into one gigantic win for all of us.  It is easy to forget how much we take Vin for granted.  Vin was [...]

Give it up for the Gugs

Even if this deal fizzles, I still tip my cap.  MLB teams and fans across the country are realizing this is a new era in Dodger baseball.  *As a fan, they have won me back*-to bad I live in Florida…Hopefully Dodger fans return to the park knowing their money is not going to support McScum [...]

Headache

What I meant to say a couple days ago is that the Giants are going to sweep the Dodgers. What do you know, the Dodgers once again make a struggling pitcher look really good. This team ceases to amaze, great road trip against the NL east followed by a possible sweep of the Giants at [...]

Calm before the Storm, Part 2

Miss me guys? …..Didn’t think so. First and foremost- 3 out of 4 in Pittsburgh, 2 out of 3 in Atlanta- impressive, the dogs are for real.  Whatever Bills is doing with that beard, keep it going.  I am trying so hard to believe in Bills…like that girl that has already cheated on you but [...]

Blanton’s De-Blue

Since the “start of the season” Thursday, the bums are 3-0. Undefeated! Nice to complete the sweep of the Cubbies at Dodger Stadium for the first time since 1998, but really, did we expect anything less?  If we plan on winning this division, that has to happen.  Vin said it best “We have to continue [...]

Lee-ma Time?

The season started yesterday as Mark pointed out and so far we are 1-0.  The bats are back! If Cliff Lee were to join this team, would he be our #3 behind the rejuvenated Chad Billingsley?  Fear the beard has an entirely new meaning. You can make the argument that Cliff Lee is one of [...]

In it for the long haul

The Good As the trade deadline has come to a close, I think that we are all in agreement that our offensive line-up has been significantly upgraded with the additions of Hanley Ramirez and Shane Victorino.  Some think we paid to steep of a price for Victorino and we might have; only time will tell.  [...]

I see you!

I love the sound of fine broom bristles sweeping the San Francisco Giants on a Sunday afternoon. What a statement series!  We manned up, we rolled up our sleeves, ripped off the training wheels and swept the Giants in the Bay!  This team has found an identity and it’s in the form of what I [...]

The Han Man Can!

Not only did Hanley put the dogs up in the bottom of the 10th on a bomb to left center field, he prevented me from having a heart attack.  “Hanley has lost his mojo”….yaaaa, ok!!!!  He was bored in Miami!  This kid can play.  Clutch hit in clutch times! This game could have easily gone [...]

Calm Before the Storm

Hey there everyone!   Mark has granted me the privilege to post on my personal favorite Dodger blog, so I will try to do my best to keep the blue conversation going.  Most of you probably know me as “the truth hurts” or years ago when I would post under the name “LAdodgerdave”.  My real [...]
