Extra! Extra! Read all about it!! Jason Schmidt gets a win!

Jason Schmidt wins a game!   The last time Jason Schmidt got a win was two years ago!  Do I remember it?  Heck no!  it was tooo long ago.  I do remember his last ugly loss against the Angels.   

The final score was 7-5 with Schmidt giving up 3 in the 1st inning.  Schmidt looked like was going to come out in the In the first inning, but he survived!  .  As bad an inning as the Dodgers had, the Red had a worst one.   It looked like it was going to be a long night at the ballgame when at the end of the first inning it was 4-3.  

Congratulations to Jason Schmidt on his first win!    I’ll await for his second start with my fingers and toes crossed.  Good luck!

Speaking about luck,Randy Wolf really needs to get some run support so good luck Lobito!


I could not post earlier and now that the computer is working I got to go sooon.   I will be sitting in the field level closer to the visiting bullpen using the company seats.tonight. 


Dodgers in Chi-town, Manny’sTemporary Housing & Westways Magazine

Dodgers are in Chi-Town playing the White Sox.  Finally one of our starters was able to keep the pitch count low and go deep into the game!   Thanks Kuroda-san!  I am sure the bullpen also thanked you. 

 The Dodgers lost the second game with El Lobo on the mound.   El Lobo lasted only 3 1/3 innings and sorrounded 3 homeruns. Corey Wade, who has not been as effective as last year,followed and gave up two more dingers.  J-Mac  gave up the last one.  that was 6 homeruns given up by the Dodgers.  

But the good thing is they fought back and made it close,  final score: 10-7.  I am surprised the White Sox had any fireworks left for the end of the game.   Oh well, we’ll get them tomorrow in the rubber game with Billz on the mound. 

Manny’s temporary home is Albuquerque, NM where the Isotopes play.  When I used to hear the name “Isotopes”, I thought it was some kind of lizard.  It shows you how very little I know.  Anyway I learned that

 Isotopes Atoms of the same element can have different numbers of neutrons; the different possible versions of each element are called isotopes. For example, the most common isotope of hydrogen has no neutrons at all; there’s also a hydrogen isotope called deuterium, with one neutron, and another, tritium, with two neutrons.

Deuterium Tritium






The Dodgers Tripe-A team used to play in Las Vegas where they were known as the 51’s after that area in Nevada called “Area 51”.  The mascot was “Cosmo”  Now the mascot for the Tope’s is Orbit so is stil extra terrestial.  


The Isotopes were named after the Springfield Isotopes, the fictional minor league team in “The Simpsons.” One of the co-creators of the nickname is Ken Levine. Ken who is is an Emmy winning writer/director/producer/major league baseball announcer, is also one of the hosts of DodgerTalk!


Next temporary housing for Manny:  San Bernardino, CA where the Single A 66r’s play.  The IE66’rs are advertising that there are limited number of tickets when the 66r’s return home on Sunday June 28th.  BTW, June 28th is my birthday! 

Anyone here get the Auto Club of Southern California magazine “Westways“?  My picture is on the July issue in the section “Picture This.”  the idea is to take the magazine with your and have yourself be photographed with it.  I took it to Camelback Ranch on Opening Day but did not submitted the picture until May.
