Hopefully you’ve all heard by now that it’s Dodger Day at the LA County Fair, and several Dodger greats will be signing autographs over the next five hours or so. If you print out a coupon from www.lacountyfair.com and wear Dodger blue, you get half off the admission and half of what you do pay will go to ThinkCure. Not a bad way to spend an off day or night.
Meanwhile, in looking through yesterday’s comments I could tell there was some anger over various players being rested. I love the lively debate and am glad that you don’t always agree with what Joe Torre does, but I can assure that no one here is trying to lose games. Reaching the playoffs and earning home field advantage is of the utmost importance and we’re trying to win every single game from here on out (and as it turned out, even while resting several regulars yesterday, we still won the game and swept the Pirates).
Anyway, it just seemed a little strange to have people so angry about guys getting rest. There’s no perfect recipe for success in the final weeks of the season, but my faith is in the guy with four World Series rings and more wins than all but four other managers in baseball history! He’s got our team leading the NL in victories, which must mean something, right?
