Final Week

This is it. One more week to go. Let’s go Dodgers !

Pierre HR Ball

Remember the Home Run that Juan Pierre hit last Monday against the Pirates ? Well the fan that caught it has decided to sell it on eBay. For $ 10,000 ! (or best offer) Huh ? Yeah I know it’s a rare item. I mean, it’s only his 13th career HR ! But who in the world would buy this ? Especially for that amount of $ ?

Video Time: Thanks Ashley for the tip. Here is a video of James Loney and Matt Kemp on the BDSS.

N.L. West

Dodgers have 9 games left. Diamondbacks have 10 games left. We are leading the Snakes by 3 1/2 games. It’s over. Dodgers will clinch this by next week. But of course…Bill Plashke, the King of writing negative stories, just published one in the L.A. Times

Viva Los Dodgers!

Good luck to all those that attend this event. I heard a couple of people will be signing autographs. I have no idea who will be. The usual suspects like Fernando Valenzuela and Jaime Jarrin will be there, but I hear some players might come out. I can’t make it…and I wanted to see Lalo Mora so bad. Oh well lol Hopefully next year :)  

Video Time! I was in Mexicali, Baja California last weekend. Attending a baptism. People there are preparing the Serie del Caribe. Mexicali is the home of the Aguilas, a Winter Baseball team. The series should be fun. I might take a game or two. Back in 2005 I saw Fernando Valenzuela pitch in Mexicali. A very different atmosphere than being in Dodger Stadium. Mexicali has a huge Chinese population and while there, it reminded me of this video I saw on the Aguilas website. Funny, funny. Sorry if you don’t read spanish or understand Chinese. :)

Here is a pix of me inside Estadio Casas Geo, Mexicali (November, 2005)

Dodgers win

Dodgers win today. I’m predicting we clinch this division by next Wednesday.

Leaving Vegas

The Dodgers left their Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas and signed a agreement to play again in Albuquerque. I don’t really have a opinion about this. Back in 2006 I saw a Spring Training game between the Dodgers and Mariners. I thought the park was nice but you can tell it’s not a modern park. Which looks like the Dodgers wanted. Remember, the Dodgers had a Triple-A team in New Mexico. They were called the Albuquerque Dukes. Cool name. Better than the current one, which is named Albuquerque Isotopes. Pix of me inside Cashman Field.

Meet Monday & Davis

You can meet Rick Monday and Tommy Davis. Here are the Details…

Rick Monday will be signing his book at Dodger Stadium on September 19 before the Dodger game. Tommy Davis will be speaking and signing autographs at El Cholo Restaurant on September 24 at 6:30 pm. Call to make your reservation:  949.673.0777 I won’t be attending any of those events. I already have their autographs. Talking about autographs, I have yet to get a autograph this month. I missed on several events because I have been extremely busy. Hopefully, I will get some chances by the end of the month.

4 game series – Los Angeles Dodgers vs Pittsburgh Pirates

Funny Lowe Interview

Derek Lowe answers some funny questions over at the “The Guy Report” Some of the funny questions/answers are the following topics. When asked about what players think about Tommy Lasorda, Lowe answers “Ummm…this generation of players is completely different. They understand kind of what happened before. But I think the majority of people, don’t really care” When asked what he thought about Frank McCourt, Lowe answered that he is the best owner in baseball “Dude, he gave me a four-year deal at $36 million. He’s the best owner in all of baseball” Finally, when asked about reporters, he answered “I just get annoyed when people ask the same stupid question over and over again. You answer it, then they try to ask you another question, reverse it in a different direction to try to get you to say something, especially about teammates. That **** drives me crazy” 

Video Time ! Andre Ethier talks about Food…
