I started reviewing my pictures to see what I could use for this week’s Photo Challenge: Lost in the Detail http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/03/01/weekly-photo-challenge-lost-in-the-details/
I found these pictures when I took a road trip to Seattle with friends Lorena & Rosie to see the Dodgers last year.
We were taking pictures of the Chihuly Garden and glass
I am afraid of bees but I stayed there taking the picture.
I also took this picture aiming low at the reflection of Lorena and I taking pictures.
July 31 brings many emotions to baseball fans. Anticipations abound along with frustrations, happiness & some sadness. July 31_the Trade Deadline Is a time to say goodbye to some players and to welcome new ones.
For the Dodgers the trades started on Tuesday night July 24, when the Dodgers acquired Hanley Ramirez & Randy choate.
The next trade happened Monday night July 30, when the Dodgers got Brandom League from the Mariners for outfielder Leon Landry and right-hander Logan Bawcom. Dodgers will use League in the seventh & eight inning.
Here is a tweet from @BrandomLeague43: “Excited to join Dodgers!! Can’t wait to meet new teammates, have my OLD throwing partner back, and call LA my home!”
Welcome Brandom League!
Dodgers got Shane Victorino back from the Phillies in exchange for Major League relief pitcher Josh Lindblom, starting pitching prospect Ethan Martin and a player to be named later or cash considerations. Victorino returns to the Dodgers eight years later after he was lost to the Phillies in the Rule 5 draft.
I can’t call Victorino “The Crying Hawaiian” any longer. We Dodger fans go from love/hate back to love relationship.
Jon SooHoo dug out this picture of Shane Victorino from 2004 back at Vero Beach. Thanks Jon!
Jon also ran into other pictures like this of Jonathan Broxton who went to the Reds. Good luck Broxton.
@JoshLindblom made me cry with his tweets.
We will miss you Josh on the Dodger team and your community work in Los Angeles. Thank you, your wife and your Josh Lindblom foundation for your work with the Dream Center.
Good luck to the Dodgers going to other teams and a welcome to all the new Dodgers
So to Recap:
Welcome Good Luck
Hanley Ramirez Lindblom
Randy Choate Eovaldi
Brandom League McGough
Shane Victorino Landry

I can say it took six pitchers to no hit the Dodgers or I can say that no matter who the Mariners send out there, the Dodgers were not going to get a hit. It reminded me of Tommy Lasorda talking about Bert Bevacqua f***ing Bevacqua, who couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a f***ing boat.” Well it applies to the Dodgers, they could not hit water if they fell out of a sinking boat.
So on June 8, 2012 Kevin Millwood and five Seattle relief pitchers tossed a no hitter. The no-hitter witnessed by my friends and I at Safeco Field, tied the major league record for most pitchers used in a no-hitter.
The last time the Dodgers went hitless in nine innings was against the Atlanta Braves’ Kent Mercker at Dodger Stadium on April 8, 1994.
Dodgers also went hitless in 8 innings at Dodger Stadium on June 28, 2008 against the Angels but the Dodgers won the game 1-0 at Dodger Stadium. I remember watching that game at Dodger Stadium. It also happen to fall on my birthday. But this is the first time I watch a nine inning no-hitter.
