That’s right, folks, with the 4-0 victory over Colorado last night, Los Dogs have won their ninth game in-a-row and their 50th overall. Jack Lord sent a card from Hawaii.
The Rox have done anything but shock. King Kersh mowed em down like bowling pins. They even walked Clayton with the bases loaded. The Dodgers are going for their third series sweep in-a-row this afternoon, which leads us to…
Today is “Bert the Chimney Sweep” day at Dodger Stadium. Anyone that arrives at Chavez Ravine dressed like Bert from the fine Disney film, Mary Poppins will receive a steak and kidney pie, a bottle of Beefeater Gin, and black lung.
Who’s pitching today?
The grim mortician, Brandon McCarthy.
What about for the Rox?
Tyler “Neo” Anderson (not nicknamed for his shared moniker with Keanu Reeves’ character in The Matrix, but for his addiction to the “Neo Geo” game system by Nintendo).
Do people really sing “The Never Ending Story” by Limahl at Trevor Story whenever he walks by?
As far as we know…
Does DJ LeMaheiu really munch on frog legs on the bench during games?
So we’ve heard.
Is Carlos Gonzalez nicknamed Cargo because of his obsession with the Men At Work album Cargo?
Yes, and before you ask, the Rockies did travel to Dodger Stadium “in a fried-out combie on a hippie trail, heads full of zombie…”
Until next time, mirth-seekers!
