Yes, it’s that time of year again. The ThinkCure radiotelewebethon is this weekend and once again, two of the auction items online hit close to home. You can now bid online for the opportunity to spend a day following yours truly around the stadium. You can also bid to follow KABC’s Josh Suchon around the stadium and of course, all of the proceeds go to ThinkCure!, our official charity.
Last year, a battle ensued between the “other Josh” and myself, with Inside the Dodgers coming through and beating KABC in the end. We’ll have to do it again this year, so I’m leaning on those of you who have the money and inclination to give to a great cause.
Here’s what I can tell you about last year’s winner…after the fact, the winner sent a letter to ThinkCure saying that even though she paid only about $1,500, the experience was worth closer to $10,000. My typical day takes me to the Dodger clubhouse, on the field, into the manager’s office, into the broadcasting booths of a couple Hall of Famers, and countless other really cool things. So if you have the means, now’s the time to step up and show what Inside the Dodgers can do! (Of course, there are tons of great items to bid on that have nothing to do with either Josh).
And please forgive me if there are shameless plugs throughout the week, as the auction ends next Monday.
And on that note, here’s tonight’s lineup against the Cards.
Pierre, CF (Kemp’s been a little under the weather)
As for Thursday, Jeff Weaver will start for us. Joe Torre said that the DL is becoming more apparent as an option for Kuroda, but we’ll wait a few days and see. He expects that Haeger will get at least another start at this point.
