Adrian Gonzales debut as a Dodger, Vin Scully will be back next year! Yankees & Red Sox in 2013

Adrian Gonzalez Debut as a Dodger

“Looks like a another perfect day!  I love LA!”   That is how Saturday 8/25/2012 turned out to be!   Adrian Gonzalez was at the game in time to be in the lineup.  Adrian comes to his  first at bat as a Dodger with Mark Ellis and El Cochito Luis Cruz on.  Next thing you know Adrian goes

A three run homerun!   Welcome to Hollywood!  Welcome to LA Adrian! 

 

There were four BOOMS at the stadium:    Giancarlo Stanton for the Marlins.  Adrian Gonzalez, Mark Ellis and Andre Ethier for the Dodgers.  

Andre Ethier breaks record of Consecutive Hits  with 10 STRAIGHT HITS

Andre tied the LA record for Consecutive Hits of  nine set by Ron Cey.  Andre then broke that record with his 10 consecutive hit in the seventh inning.  He tied a Dodger record set in 1919 by first baseman Ed Konetchy.   In addition, Andre also was a triple short of a cycle.  Mark Ellis also was short of a cycle. 

KERSHAW gets win #12

Kershaw pitched a three hitter giving up two runs and striking out eight for his 12th win.  Final score:  Dodgers 8, Marlins 2. 

VIN SCULLY WE LOVE YOU!  WE LOVE YOU MORE FOR COMING BACK NEXT YEAR!

Could Saturday night get any better?   Well yes!   Vin Scully announced that he is coming back in 2013! 

It is Vin Scully Bobblehead Thursday August 30th when the Dodgers face the Arizona D’Backs. 

And come 2013, the Dodgers finally will go to Yankee Stadium!   The Red Sox will be coming to Dodger Stadium in August of 2013.

How Sweeeet it is! Dodgers Sweeep the Mets.

Happy Day!  Dodgers Sweep the Mets! 

 

 

Dodgers have a four game winning streak and have scored 28 runs in those four games. 

The Giants lost in 12 innings.

Josh Wall made his MLB debut and got the win Sunday.

Mike Sandlock, 96 yr old Brooklyn Dodger was honored at Citi Field on Saturday

Dodgers nuns with Andre & Kemp.  

El Cochito Luis Cruz hit his first Major League homerun. 

The Boys in Blue are now in St Luis to play four games there.   Chad Billingsley goes off the DL to start Monday against local boy from Southern California, Joe Kelly.

Dodgers with the best record in baseball (23-11) face the Diamond Backs at Dodger Stadium

It was a great weekend for Los Angeles! Lakers, Clippers & Dodgers win! The Dodgers swept the Rockies. The last game did not start well with Lilly on the mound. Then when Matt Kemp had to come out of the game with a sore hammy and then Ethier got kicked out of the game, things did not look good, but AJ Ellis said “no worries” Here I am! Boom! Homerun by AJ Ellis to clear the bases. BTW, Abreau is doing great since joining the Dodgers from the Angels. I believe he has three doubles now. I saw him at second base with a big smile :-).
.
Now here are the Snakes and Dodgers ex-Dodgers VP of Communications, Josh Rawtich returns to Dodger Stadium with his new team the D-Backs. I miss you Josh!

Matt Kemp is out of the lineup today. Rest and Get betterMatt!

Dodgers are in first place and so are my fantasy baseball team, Los Locos Azules.

No batting practice for me today but I am now leaving work and heading to the Ravine. Clayton Kershaw faces Ian Kennedy.

Tomorrow I will be sure to leave early since is Orel Hershiser Bobblehead. BTW, I saw fans get mad yesterday because they did not get an Andre Ethier bag. It said the first 20,000 fans so Dodgers ran out before the game. Get there early for giveaways especially when the number of giveaways is limited.
Go Dodgers!

Tommy Lasorda giving hitting instructions at Spring Training

Here is a short video I shot of Tommy Lasorda dressed in his batting practice jersey giving instructions to the minor leaguers on how to hit. 🙂   “You got an ax in your hand”  “you are chopping the tree down”  “como esta la republica?”

Tommy is so funny

Happy St Patrick’s Day

Happy ST Patrick Day everyone!  We are in Arizona.  Going to the first game at Talking Stick for the Dodger game  against Colorado.  Then is back to Camelback Ranch for the game against the hated Jints.  I am wearing my green jersey.  Lost my phone.  So fricking mad at myself but “que se la hacer”  what can you do?  I’ll just try to enjoy the rest of trip.
