Wow…what a performance from Halladay in his first ever postseason appearance. Quite a way to kick off the 2010 playoffs. It’s very strange watching on TV after being a part of it the last two seasons, but MLB has to be thrilled with the way the first two games have gone.
On a side note, Matt Magill is up for the “Best Class-A Starting Pitcher” award on milb.com. He pitched for the Great Lakes Loons, which was the best team in minor league baseball this year so vote now and keep checking back at milb.com for the other categories, which are upcoming (Best Hitter, Best Reliever, Best Game and Best Team).
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.
