We took 2 out of 3 from the Defending World Champions Phillies!
I was worry about the trip to Philadelphia. How would my Dodgers do? Can they win consistently without Manny? Would James Loney and Russell Martin start picking up the pace? Well, they did!. James Loney hit two homeruns in Philadelphia. Russell started hitting better. Casey Blake hit his 7th home run. Not bad for a guy hitting 8! Wolf “El Lobo” got his win against his old team. Billz has been pitching lights out although Jonathan Broxton could not save the win for him. Jonathan got the cheap win. I wish there was a way for Billz who only allowed 3 hits and 1 run in 7 innings to get the win but those are the rules.
On to Florida to play at ::looks for the new name of the stadium: Land Shark Stadium. what is that story behind that name? The times for the 3 game series are: Friday 4:10 P.T., Saturday 3: P.T., Sunday 10:10 P.T.
At first I was “why the 3: P.T time? I went back to the Dodgers scheduled and it says
Broadcast joined in progress
What is up with that?????????
Well, I learned that Saturday afternoons have been FOX’s exclusive territory for years – there’s a national blackout between the hours of 1pm and 4pm western time. If any team wanted to start a game in the blackout period, they’d be unable to broadcast the game until the blackout ended –
So Saturday we start watching the game in what? the 4th inning? Oh and the reason for the early start? A concert of some sort. Thanks a lot Marlins.
In the meantime.. Good luck Dodgers! Good Luck Stults!
