That reminds me…
So clearly I don’t know how to load photos, as you see from yesterday’s attempt. My apologies. For what it’s worth, it looked completely normal on my laptop. I guess if it’s not from SooHoo, I’m lost.
As for the question about next season’s schedule ending so late (Oct. 4), it’s mainly due to the fact that Spring Training is longer because of the World Baseball Classic. We’ll also start Spring games earlier than usual and there are more of them…and of course, it’ll be closer to home for the overwhelming majority of you guys.
As for this year, I’m sitting here in the PNC Park press box with a gorgeous view of the downtown skyline and river and yet, the sun is glaring so strongly on my seat that I have to wear sunglasses to see my screen. It reminds me of a line that our former OC Register beat writer, Bill Plunkett, dropped on me a couple years ago in a similar situation at New Busch Stadium. “I’ve never covered a game on the surface of the sun,” he said. “But I’d imagine this is what it would be like.”
In any event, that’s not a complaint. It’s really a gorgeous day and we’ve been blessed with four perfect days of weather here. Let’s hope three of them result in victories. As for last night, it was just the 10th time in L.A. Dodger history that we’ve lost a game in which we had 18 or more hits. And according to Ken Gurnick, it’s the first time that’s ever happened in a season where we won a game with no hits. Yes, we’re all losing it after 11 days on the road.
Here’s the lineup for today’s finale:
