Well I’ve taken over a week off of blogging to move twice in the last 10 days and I finally have my computer set up in our new place and can return to my Internet life.
It’s amazing how much has changed with the Dodgers since I last wrote. 3 of the 6 Dodger minor leaguers that I had spent a great deal talking about have now made it to the major league club – Jonathan Broxton, Andre Ethier, and most recently Russell Martin. They all have contributed since they’ve been with the team, and most recently they ALL contributed significantly in last night’s 12-6 pounding of the Houston Astros. It sure is great to see these young players finally getting the chance at the big league level and making an immediate impact.
Nomar Garciaparra has been a gift for the Dodgers – he’s playing great, both defensively and offensively, and has single handedly kept us in close ballgames, with 2 game winning hits in the last week.
There are trade rumors that the Dodgers are looking into possibly trading Odalis Perez to the Mets or another team since they see to have more starting pitchers than they can handle. Most people agree Aaron Sele is not going anywhere after winning the PCL Player of the Month award and being called up to the Dodgers and having a very solid first outing, and there is always Chad Billingsley down in AAA Vegas who is just waiting to burst on the scene. I welcome trading Odalis if we can make a good deal that would benefit us in other ways.
Well that’s it for now, more regular blogging to continue.
