Dingo stole my baseball.

Something probably not said today but should have been.

Dodgers took game one while you slept, 3-1, over the D-backs.

"I didn’t see the technical tag…" - Cal Ripken, Jr.

Because there wasn’t one.

I’ve decided to use a new tool to pick the World Series winner

Announcer I Like Best

Using the AILB analysis I pick the Dodgers, giving me 8-14 more Vin Scully-voiced games.

Coincidentally the AILB ends up with the same result for 95% of all fans who do not have a team in the playoffs. The other 5% find Joe Castiglione charming.

13,000 Tickets Still Available

for tonight’s Dodgers-Braves game.

Apparently Atlanta REALLY likes Thursday Night Football.

October 3 should just be re-named “Bobby Thomson Day”

62nd anniversary, jump to 1:25 if you are impatient

Note: Sonny Corleone was listening to the game that day.

Dodgers Beat D-backs 7-6 Clinch NL West

It’s their first playoff appearance since 2009

Another version: Upstart rookie Yasiel Puig has the nerve to make playoffs in first season. Who does he think he is?

Vin Scully will return to the Dodgers booth for 2014 - his 65th season.
The starting lineup from Scully’s first game in the radio/TV booth with another legend, Red Barber:
April 18, 1950 - Shibe Park (Philadelphia)
Dodgers

Gil Hodges
Bobby Morgan
Roy Campanella

The tiresome trope of the young star “not respecting the game” needs to end, especially since it’s existed for nearly a century and not proven out. 

And I am sure glad that Puig wasn’t in the All Star Game, that showed him for being talented too quickly.

Your Los Angeles Dodgers!

On June 20:

Dodgers are 29-42, 8.5 games back in the division

June 21 - August 16:

Dodgers are 42-8, 9.5 game division lead

That’s right the Dodgers have played .840 ball over the past 2 months and have had a 18-game turnaround.

(And as mentioned yesterday, tonight’s win puts the Dodgers in VERY elite company.)

Dodgers have won 41 of 49.

If they win again on Saturday, they’ll be 3rd team in last 100 yrs to win 42 of 50 (‘41 Yankees, 42 Cardinals)

@ESPNStatsInfo

The ‘41 Yanks and the ‘42 Cards both ended up in the World Series. The Yankees won the Series in both seasons.
