I got tied up in meetings yesterday afternoon and then I was involved in the salute to Jaime Jarrin, who was honored yesterday for 50 years in the Dodger broadcast booth. It’s hard to even fathom that and he quite obviously belongs in any conversation about the most significant people in the history of the Dodgers. He oozes class, he epitomizes dignity and he deserves all the honors that come his way.
In case somehow you missed it, Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times wrote a very nice feature about Jaime and for those of you Spanish speakers, Hoy had a great piece, too, that you can see here:
Needless to say, it was a very special night for Jaime and if you’ve never had a chance to hear him, do yourself a favor and tune into 930 AM during a game sometime when you’re driving. Even if you don’t understand Spanish, you’ll understand why he’s been so successful at his trade. He’s helped me learn the language and he’s truly a legend in Los Angeles.
Of course, by the time there was a chance to post a lineup last night, the game was over. That’s Mark Buehrle, I guess. But, the Snakes lost again so we’re still four games back. Hard to imagine how far ahead we could be if we were playing up to our potential, but the silver lining is that we remain in the race and there’s plenty of room for improvement.
