The Dodgers are going into San Diego with a 3-3 road trip record in this their final road trip. They saw the Nationals and the Reds celebrate winning their division. I believe this is the first time that I am on the road seeing another team celebrating.
Josh Becket starts tonight against Volquez.
I am not going to this series but is very tempting to jump into my car and head to San Diego>

Last Six game Home Stand! Carmageddon Weekend.
I am looking forward to the last Dodger homestand with three games with Colorado Rockies and then the Giants are in town for three. Here is what is coming up at Dodger Stadium:
The Friday night fireworks will be set to the music of Frank Sinatra. Dodgers will be celebrating Tommy Lasorda and Sweet Lou’s birthday which was September 22nd.
Happy 50th Baseball Anniversary Manuel Jeronimo Mota!
Saturday is the Gran Fiesta. The final Viva Los Dodgers. The game time has been changed to 6:10 pm. The Gran Fiesta will start four hours before. Also Pepe Yniguez told me that Manny Mota will be honored for his 50 year Baseball Anniversary! Felicidades Manny! Te queremos mucho!
It seems not long ago that picture was taken but it was Spring Training when you can see Manny Mota riding his bike.
Fan Appreciation Day on Sunday. For those traveling down the 405 Freeway, don’t forget is Carmageddon weekend.
Dodgers close the regular season with three games with the Giants starting Monday. Wednesday’s game has a rare start of 4:15 pm.
Dodgers are off today. They got swept by the hated Giants at home. It was sad being at Dodger Stadium and watching this. Dodgers never led in any of the three games.
