Good News #2! Dodgers!!!

2. The Dodgers are in the playoffs!

How many of these are household names? I mean I mean apart from Gagne (DL), Garciaparra, Kent, Lofton and Maddux.

This team has put together winning and losing streaks, untimely injuries and timely acquisitions and proved that leadership, chemistry and full use of a deep line-up can produce a sterling performance over 162 games.
Beware, New York. Be very wary.


  1. Game 1: I could not believe that second inning! How can you get two guys thrown out at home plate on the same play. La Duca just had to spin around and tag the second runner out. I had to see it on Tivo, just to be sure I heard it right. That's going to make interesting reading tomorrow in the sports page. The Dodgers were trailing 6-4 going into the 9th when my Tivo gave out. Not curious how it turned out, not when the Gods were so provoked in the 2nd inning.

  2. Yeah, Vigil. That play was a corker. If I had been a Dodger fan, and not expecting it, I would have blown all the beer out of my mouth on that one.

    Hey, what's with them Blue guys starting Garciaparra? Don't they have that rookie, Loney, on their play-off roster.

    Save Nomo for the late-inning Kirk Giobson role. That's what I would do, if I were in your dugout.

  3. Bill Plaschke wanted Loney on the playoff roster and so did I.
    Rookie Has the Vision to Succeed

  4. And it's Nomar. Nomo is history.

  5. And it's Gibson.

    (That's two mistakes in the same line. One more and you're out!)

  6. Loney is on the roster and should be an able replacement. He drove in nine runs during a game the last week of the regular season.

  7. Flash Up-Date: DODGERS WIN & ADVANCE!!!
