        Sure, but a feel good story needs a downside to the upside.

    They have to change the soundbites for the radio postgame to include Puig heroics. Ramon is saying Puig has made things fun — we all can attest to that!

    From the Great Moments in MLB Promotion Ideas dept….today is the 39th anniversary of the 10 cent beer night riot in Cleveland. A day which will live in drunken idiot infamy…

    The resulting forfeit was one of just 4 since 1954….and the Dodgers had the most recent one, v. St. Louis in 1995 when Lasorda and Mondesi were thrown out for arguing balls and strikes. And balls was the result, as fans peppered the field with the ones they’d been given in a promotion.

    The other 2 forfeits also are detailed at the link.

    Off topic… If I could read only one author for the rest of my life, it would be Clive Cussler. I don’t know how many books he has written but I’ve read maybe 40 and everyone keeps me totally enthralled until I finish it. And with a deep hunger for the next one, dying to know what he’ll come up with next…

    The Dodgers didn’t really deserve to win that one, not with Mattingly failing to run for Hernandez not once but twice in the last three innings. Each time Hernandez got on base, I was screaming at the tv–aren’t you going to run for a fat 37-year-old catcher?

    I was also yelling at Uribe in hopes that he would not swing at a pitch, for fear he would hit into a double play and leave the Cuban Missile in the on-deck circle. I hear Mattingly using the nickname already, so perhaps it’ll stick.
