For those who missed Randy Wolf’s web chat, the transcript from earlier today is here. Some funny stuff came out of it (who knew he was such a Star Wars fan and a drummer). But as the person who does the typing in this, it was pretty tough to have to write about his El Camino teams beating my Chatsworth team at the City Championship at Dodger Stadium. For those of you who live in the Valley, you know that the rivalry runs deep and Randy never misses a chance to rub in our loss.
But, he’s one of the more thoughtful big leaguers I’ve ever been around and even took time out of his day today to go visit a lot of sick kids at Childrens Hospital, specifically requesting that no media be there. He just wanted to do it out of the goodness of his own heart, which is pretty cool.
We’ve got another visit tomorrow, this time to White Memorial, and Ramon Troncoso and Guillermo Mota are both going to be spending some time with the kids. We have a long-standing relationship that goes back to the mid 90s there and watching these kids faces light up when a big leaguer walks in is something you cannot easily forget.
In any event, here’s the lineup for tonight’s game against the Brewers:
UPDATE: Orlando Hudson was scratched with an upset stomach and Juan Castro has taken his place in the lineup.
