Dodger beats the Giants, Bonds still at 713

The Dodgers played a solid game tonight, beat the Giants 6-1.

This team has won 6 of their last 7 and they seem to really be coming together. I could not have imagined that rookies would be producing as much as they are at this early in the season, but it just proves how awesome our young guys are. Just a month ago, the following players were playing in AAA Las Vegas – Aaron Sele, Willy Aybar, Russ Martin, and Andre Ethier. They are now playing for the Dodgers and are contributing significantly. Couple that with Garciaparra’s hot hitting and the Dodgers’ willingness to run and play small ball… and you have a team that looks like a definite contender. I’m excited about the rest.

Oh and Bonds didn’t hit 714 against them today. Thank God. Hopefully we can keep him homerless and let that disgrace hit it against some other team. Part of me deep down just knows he is going to hit it off the Dodgers though… he always seems to.

In other good news, Gagne is headed to Las Vegas soon…

"The tentative start date for Eric Gagne’s injury rehabilitation
assignment at Triple-A Las Vegas is May 25, but he’s already
absolutely, positively sure that his elbow is fixed.

After throwing off a mound on Wednesday for the first time since
April 7 surgery to remove a nerve in his elbow, Gagne felt well enough
to toss again in the outfield before Thursday’s game."
