What a difference a win makes
It’s amazing how much one victory can change the way everyone thinks. Imagine, if we had lost last night’s game, we’re 6-9 and everyone is starting to think that we’re falling apart. Instead, we’re 7-8 with a great walk-off win and everyone’s feeling great. It’s strange how that works, but fortunately people who have watched baseball for years know how long the season is and that one win or loss in April doesn’t really make or break a season. Of course, we now have one more win we don’t "need" in September, but I’ve always found it interesting how much it changes people’s moods, thought processes and outlook.
On the injury front, Nomar is getting closer to making his Dodger debut, while Yhency Brazoban’s surgery went well yesterday. We’re all thinking of him and his recovery today, as it’s a long road back from Tommy John surgery, but everyone is hopeful he’ll be back and better than ever in about a year.
As for the offense, the Dodger hitters got together before yesterday’s game and while it didn’t create an offensive outburst, we doubled our hit production from the previous two nights and got a victory, which is what counts.
