About five days ago, I was sitting in Grady’s office when he told me that sometime this week, either James Loney, Matt Kemp or Delywn Young was going to find himself in the headlines. He didn’t know which one it would be or how it would happen, but he had a feeling.
I’m now on the bus, on our way to the airport (gotta love wireless internet cards) and James Loney is about four rows behind me, on the phone with ESPN Radio national after hitting his first grand slam, a second homer, two more hits and a franchise record-tying nine RBI. No one in L.A. history had ever done it…you have to go all the way back to Gil Hodges in 1950 to see what we saw today.
It seems like every day, I’m blogging about something else incredible. Four homers in a row…walk-off grand slams…nine RBI in a game. This has been the most exciting month of baseball I can remember in a long, long time.
And it’s far from over, I know. We still have three huge games left in San Francisco and wouldn’t you know that it would come down to the Giants?
I’m fairly certain you guys set an Inside the Dodgers record with 130-something comments during the game today. Keep it up. Keep watching every pitch, because it’s going to be an exciting weekend.
