Indeed, I’m not on this trip but I’m glad to be at home right now playing catch up and coming up with some fun ideas for the next homestand. Believe it or not, there’s a ton that goes on around here when the team is gone. I should still have lineups fairly quickly, though, as Joe Jareck, our assistant director, calls them in as soon as they’re posted in the clubhouse.
As for yesterday’s game, it was another step in the right direction. No one is satisfied with third place, but if you’re in fourth, you have to stop at third before you aim for second and first. Four wins in five games is a nice start to rebounding from the disaster that was the previous two weeks.
Also, tomorrow is a chance to speak with a Dodger legend who many people rarely get to hear from. Jaime Jarrin will host a web chat at 2 p.m. on dodgers.com and questions can be submitted in both English and Spanish. He truly is the Spanish-speaking equivalent of Vin Scully and has an incredible wealth of Dodger knowledge to tap into, so be sure to log-in early and send off your questions to be answered.
