Furcal and predictions – Josh Rawitch
Another good win today, as Jae Seo looked awesome on the mound. Rafael Furcal’s back tightened up, though, so he left the game early and is listed as day-to-day. We’re all hoping it’s nothing serious and right now, we have no reason to believe it’s bad, but you never like to see one of your top players go down to an injury in the final days of spring.
Meanwhile, ESPN has put out its predictions for 2006. It’s pretty cool to see that nine of 15 people picked the Dodgers to win the West and Rob Neyer picked us to beat the Twins in the Fall Classic. While these are only predictions, is does make you feel good about the way people view the team heading into the season.
One more game left in Vero before we head to Vegas. Even though we spend a lot of time time here and people like to joke about "being ready to go home," we’ll certainly miss this place. Craig Callan and his staff take incredible care of us in our second home and we’re extremely grateful for all their hard work.
