Thank you to Mark and all from the MLB Blogs for doing the Top 100 MLB Blogs every year. Thank you to commenters, readers and anyone else that stumbles on my blog! Thank you to Clayton & Ellen Kershaw for their wonderful work giving back to the community. Is no wonder that Clayton Kershaw was the 2012 Roberto Clemente Award winner.
p.s. lost my original post here so I had to redo this. No problem, learned something.
Sunday I was planning on going to the San Clemente Seafest but after seeing that there was going to be an MLB Postseason quadruple header on TV, I decided to stay home. I am glad I did stay home to watch most of the four game series. Yeah, I vegetated but in between I did get some cooking done.. I’ll take the train ride to San Clemente another weekend.
Today there is another quadruple header! I am at work but I will work with my headphones on while I listen to some of the local announcers on MLB At Bat. I tend to switch between the home and away team announcers. I have found them a little too homers. That is something that you don’t find with Vin Scully, Jaime Jarrin and Pepe Yniguez.
When I find myself on the road and my MLB At Bat fails me at the stadium, I turn to my radio and listen to the local announcers. In addition to enjoying the game, I like to listen to the local commercials to see who their local sponsors are. I found the milk commercials at Minnesota …wholesome :-). By the way, avocados from Mexico commercials in the MLB Postseason? Cool! It did make me want some avocado . Talking about avocados, last weekend was the Avocado festival in Carpinteria, CA.
this reminds me of the avocado trees back home in Honduras. It also reminded me of Duke Snider who had an avocado farm in Fallbrook, CA.
The quadruple header for today:
St Louis at WAS 10 AM PT (1 PM ET) on MLBNetwork. Carpenter against Edwin Jackson.
SF at CIN 1 PM PT (4 PM ET) on TBS Barry Zito against Mike Leake
BAL at NY 4:30 PM PT (7:30 PM ET) on TBS on ESPN radio Miguel Gonzalez against Kuroda-san.
DET at OAK 6:30 PM PT (9:30 PM ET) on TNT Mike Scherzer against AJ Griffin
Ex-Dodgers in the postseason: Kuroda-san, Jonathan Broxton, Guilleromo Mota, Edwin Jackson, Derek Lowe, Jayson Werth, Russell Martin, Jim Thome, Jim Johnson, Xavier Paul, Dioner Navarro and David Ross (Braves)

p.s. Jaime Jarrin twitted this “commendable drive of Clayton Kershaw to intensify the collection of funds to help kids in Zambia. He will have a golf tournament on November 12th in Los Angeles.
I like the quotes once you publish your post here at the MLB Blogs. This is from today:
The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe. — Gustave Flaubert
Happy 47th Perfecto Anniversary to Sandy Koufax!
Today September 9, 2012 is the 47th anniversary of Sandy Koufax Perfect game at Dodger Stadium against the Cubs.
Happy anniversary to Sandy and the Dodgers!
Dodger Rubber game at San Pancho
Great win and much needed by the boys in Blue yesterday. I go thru so many emotions with this team from frustration to relief that they tied the series. I called San Francisco Pancho because that is one of the nicknames for the name Francisco. Another nickname is Chico, that is what they used to call my grandfather on my mother’s side. Chico Giants sounds like an oximoron as chico means small. So Rubber game at San Pancho.
Two lefties to the mound: Clayton Kershaw (12-8 2.79) against Barry Zito (10-8, 4.51) I hope Kershaw gets better run support.
OH NO! PANIC! CRISIS! Clayton Kershaw has been scratched!
Does that baseball Rubber ducky stress reliever work????
Good luck Kerhsaw
And good luck Joe Blanton! May the Dodgers give you some runs
OK, like my friend Rosie said, at least is not Kershaw’s arm. Dylan Hernandez just posted that Kershaw is scheduled to pitch at Arizona. I feel a little better.
