Video Time! The Dodgers had alot of sad moments in Yankee Stadium. Except ’55
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)
A pix of Fernando Valenzuela warming up….
Finally, a pix of the greatest Concession Stand you will ever see ! :)
Dodgers win today. I’m predicting we clinch this division by next Wednesday.
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.

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…
3 game series – Los Angeles Dodgers vs San Diego Padres
Let’s keep the winning streak going !
Video time! Vin Scully and Jaime Jarrin interviewed last year at Vero Beach.
A couple of MLBlogs have been updated. Andre Ethier has a new food review. Zack Hample made a visit to Dodger Stadium. I enjoy reading his blog. He has a passion of collecting baseballs. Alyssa Milano updated her blog too. Check them out.
I got a e-mail from Ken Roberts. He created a “odds of making the playoffs” website. At this moment, according to his site the Dodgers have a 49.11 % to make the playoffs. Interesting stuff. Check it out if you’re into numbers.
Troy from West Virginia is not happy with Allegany County Community College.
3 game series – Los Angeles Dodgers vs Arizona Diamondbacks
Dodgers need to sweep this team. Hopefully by Monday, we are in 1st place!

Manny: Como te gusta el left fielder ?
Angel: Who’s that ?
Reporter: The slugger, he hits lots of Home Runs
Angel: Oh wait, who’s that ? hold on, hold on. Juan Pierre ! ? lol :)
3 game series – Los Angeles Dodgers vs San Diego Padres
I guess there is a chance. Since the Dodgers were able to take 2 out 3 from Arizona. But isn’t it embarrasing that they are not playing well ? I’m disappointed in this team. I don’t see the difference of having Joe Torre or Grady Little managing this team. Torre should of fielded his best team first. Who cares how much money you make or how old you are. He gave other players a preference. Will 2009 be the year that Andre Ethier is your everyday outfielder ? Or once again, will he have to prove himself ? Fighting time with Pierre and Jones ? I just get upset about this Outfield situation. Jones is coming back next year (it was a 2 year contract) and Pierre is here for 3 more years ! So once again, the talented Ethier or Kemp will be on the bench. That’s not even thinking if the Dodgers get Ramirez back. Then what do you do ? I don’t think anyone will trade for Pierre. Even if they pay some of his salary. It’s going to be a interesting off-season. Anyways, let’s see if we can get back into 1st place before it’s too late.
Video Time: Karros vs Nomo – Konichiwa !
