That makes three Cy Young Award winners for this road trip, including Roy Halladay, and six on the season including John Smoltz, Greg Maddux (twice) and Barry Zito. But on the bright side, we missed Tom Glavine and Bartolo Colon, so as I’ve learned in life, it can always be worse. Here’s hoping today’s results are better than yesterdays…a 6-4 road trip would not be bad at all, if they can pull it off.
Tonight’s the deadline to vote for All-Star balloting and win or lose, I have to say hat the people on this blog have been tremendous in their support of the team. We’ve never seen the kind of voting numbers that we’ve seen this year and I do believe that those of you who visit this site are responsible for a ton of it. No matter what happens, don’t let anyone tell you that LA fans are laid back because I think we’ve seen otherwise.
A big homestand coming up against the Pads, Braves and Marlins. Tomorrow night is mesh cap night which seems to be the "in" type of cap these days. Fireworks on July 4, Furcal’s bobblehead on July 6 and on July 3, we’re going to witness the 175 millionth fan attending a Dodger game since 1901, with all sorts of cool things going on that night. As Vin would say, "We hope you’ll join us at Dodger Stadium this homestand."
Here’s today’s lineup:
Loney, 1B (batting .500 on the year – 19-for-38)
