For those who will be home tonight, be sure to tune into ESPN, as we’re on the Sunday night national game against the Phillies. There’s no question, we’ve got to start winning series now and dropping the first two of this four-game set hurts. But, with three games back and 33 games to go, the D’back could go 20-13 (which is seven games over .500…what they’ve done all year) and we’d have to go 24-9. Doesn’t seem likely, but it’s not impossible.
Now, consider if the D’backs go 17-16 and we go 21-12…we’d still win the West by a game.
Bottom line…there are plenty of games left to play and many of them are against teams that are under .500, but we’ve got to start winning now!
As for the ThinkCure auction, to answer a couple questions, it is for just one person (I can’t really have an entourage at work!) and six years old is probably a little young for this. I don’t believe there’s a formal limit on the site, but I’d say 16 is about as young as we can probably go and get away with it.
There’s about six hours left and we’re beating KABC’s Josh Suchon…it goes until 9 p.m. PT tonight, so make Inside the Dodgers proud and help find the cure for cancer!
