It took me an hour to think of how to start a post that captured my feelings about the Dodgers’ left fielders. I finally decided to go with madcap:

Fasten your seatbelts and get ready for fun. “The Left Field Rally” has begun!

“The Left Field Rally.” An all-out, anything goes, absolutely illegal race.

The players come in all shapes … sizes … and … sexes. (You never know.)

From all walks of life, all over the world.

In “The Left Field Rally,” the left fielders are the stars.

Thames. Paul. Gibbons. Gwynn. Gimenez. Oeltjen. Hoffmann. Kapler. Sands. Midseason Acquisition Guy. They go over … under … around … and through … anything that stands between them and the finish line.
