The storied rivalry dating back to when the Dodgers were in Brooklyn is again about to begin at 7pm tonight. Giants are once again in the Ravine to go up against our Boys in Blue. Good luck to them because we will need to win all three games to even have a chance in the NL Wild Card.
Now for my take on what has happened in the past week for the Dodgers. First, the Manny trade. I’m one to always say, “The past is the past,” and move on. I think that is what the fans should do with regards to Manny Ramirez leaving the Dodgers. He gave us great memories in 2008 & 2009. He brought back an energy to the stadium that was needed to revive the fans that had been losing hope of another WS in the near future. However, he is gone now. I’m not going to even argue the ejection. First pitch strike on an ump who has been squeezing his strike zone all night when the bases were loaded. Manny should have taken it and gotten back into focus of what he was put in the game for. He didn’t however. Nothing can be done now. Good luck to him and the White Sox organization & their fans.

Martin: According to Torre, will most likely not require surgery. I miss him, but Barajas 3 homers in 5 games is filling the hole 🙂
Rafael: Homered in Albuquerque last night and was activated tonight. He playing his usual and leading off in the lineup. Good luck Raffy! We’ve missed you.
