Even without Andre Ethier in the lineup, the Dodgers won their ninth straight last night on his bobblehead night and there was a packed house at Dodger Stadium.
Now, Andre is over at ESPN Los Angeles studios to film a “This is Sportscenter commercial,” which usually means you’re pretty darn big if they’re asking you to do this sort of thing. And even better, you’ll get to see the behind-the-scenes footage of the commercial shoot, as the Dodgers Media Network is here getting some pretty cool stuff. Amazingly, there are like 40 people on the set for a 30-second spot. Pretty crazy.
What’s next for the budding star?
Well, he’s got an upcoming action figure night (July 8), a poster (Aug. 20) and a few other big time media requests we’ve gotten for him. We’re going to try to bang out most of these while he’s hurt because unfortunately, he can’t play at the moment. But, hopefully he’ll be back soon and by then, who knows, maybe the Dodgers will be on a 23-game winning streak…
A chance to move into a first place tonight at the Ravine against the Padres…
A couple of Single-A Dodger prospects are in the news in Midland, Michigan for all the right reasons.
Great Lakes Loons’ prospects Rafael Ynoa and Elisaul Pimentel helped save a life last weekend. We’re proud of actions and would like to think that everyone in the Dodger organization would have reacted the same way, had they been in their shoes.
Down here in San Diego, the Dodgers are getting set to try and complete a perfect road trip for the first time since the end of the 2006 season. Andre Ethier is en route to Los Angeles to be checked out by a hand specialist. We hope to know more after the game, so keep an eye out for the latest news. Hopefully it won’t be too serious and he can avoid a DL stint.
Homestand opens up tomorrow at Dodger Stadium, with two against the ‘Stros, three against the Pads and three against the Tigers.
Got some grief yesterday for jokingly touting Jeff’s return to Weaverwood so trying a new one today…just trying to keep it fresh. I’m sure the Andre Ethier fans can’t get enough of the guy.
Prior to today’s game, Manny Ramirez was officially activated and he’s in the lineup tonight. Meanwhile, had the chance to catch up with Jim Tracy before the game and he’s one of the classiest guys in baseball. You can’t help but root for a guy like that…unless, of course, he’s playing against us. So, here’s to sweeping the Rockies but seeing them do well when they’re not facing the Dodgers.
For those still looking for Mother’s Day plans, we’ve got a game tomorrow and tickets are still available. No better way than to spend the day with your mom at Dodger Stadium. After the game, fans are allowed down on the field to walk around the warning track with their family, which is always a fun memory. And the players will be using pink bats to help raise awareness for breast cancer in support of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation.
That’s about all…first pitch just a few minutes away. Here’s the lineup:
