MLB & Dodgers Notes – June 23, 2008
First of all, as you know, the Chicago White Sox will be playing a 3 game series at Dodger Stadium. They were just swept by the Chicago Cubs over the weekend. Those were exciting games. More exciting is to know that the managers of those respective teams can rap. Yeah, Ozzie and Lou rap. Who acts more “gangsta” ?
The news out of the Los Angeles Times is that Dodgers general manager Ned Colleti
would allow the Seattle Mariners to talk to Dodgers VP/Assistant GM Kim Ng. Seattle is looking for a GM since recently they fired their GM Bill Bavasi. If Kim ever does get a job with any club as a gm, she would be the first female gm in baseball. I’m sure, she would do a better job than Colleti….
Writing about L.A. Times, there is another article written by Chris Dufresne. It’s terrible. It made me sick. He can complain about the Dodgers all he wants.
But to compare this franchise to the Angels ? Wow. He wrote stuff like “Steve Garvey’s forearms leading the charge, always seemed a little too good to be true. The field was too perfect, the grass too green, the home uniforms too white, the portly manager a little bit too over the top” Well I’m sorry we don’t have a dumb rally-monkey!
So has anyone ever had a Tommy Lasorda Wine ? If you want to blow 500 bucks down the drain, you can purchase a limited edition Lasorda Wine. Buy it here. Apparently, it has won several awards for it’s great taste. He quotes on his blog “Over the weekend I went to the Pamona Fairplex to receive a most prestigious award. Actually, my Pinot Grigio received the award, as it received a gold medal and was named Best Wine, Best in Class at the 2008 Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition’s inaugural Wine World of Sports, which pitted sports celebrities’ vintages against each other. My Chianti and Montepulciano, d’Abruzzo were also in the top ten, which makes me so happy because I would never get involved with a wine that wouldn’t please the people who drink it. “It’s especially satisfying because all the wine comes from Italy, which means it’s the best in the world. Nobody makes better wine than the Italians!” Hey Tommy, it’s not Pamona, it’s Pomona ! Also, don’t get drunk in public or else this might happen to you….Later! Peace!
