    That’s one not-so-small step over an Angel…a giant leap for Dodgerkind?

    OK. Firefox crashed last night right after it hit 6-1. I kind of agreed with the browser and didn’t reboot, just figured to see some sort of pitiful result this morning. Well, hush my mouth…

    I think FF plug-in container and shockwave flash have some kind of duel at times that ends in a standoff, hung in a loop or something. Couldn’t possibly have anything to do with my insisting on having about 27 windows and tabs open at the same time…..nah…..

    Maybe there’s sort of a message in there for the Dodgers, especially hitters…reboot, simplify things, focus on one pitch, one AB, at a time….not 27 or so different things all at once.

    However the Boston trade eventually settles out, where would this team be without AGon, Crawford, and Punto? Sure hasn’t been much production elsewhere.

    Think I saw decent AAA stats for Rubby and Webster recently. Will this prove to be one of those trades that benefit both teams?

    And, no, doubt I comment for the cycle.

    Fringe benefit of having these ex-Bosoxers on the team (and Mattingly as manager) is that Fox announcers can effortlessly segue into East Coast bias.

    This is an excellent title for this post.

    A come-from-behind victory is one small step for most other teams,
    one giant leap for the 2013 Dodgers . . . but it’s also a leap which is
    the first step on the longest journey.

    And definitely an “Amen!” to the praises for the Bostonians!

    I admit it: I gave up on the Dodgers last night. We were driving home from a weekend on the coast and turned the game off the radio after the first two runs. We tuned back in a few innings later, only to hear them go down 4-1, and started hand-wringing about whether it was time for Mattingly to be the sacrificial lamb.

    We therefore had no expectations when we turned the game on at home, expecting a quick and painless death, to find it tied 6-6. I still didn’t expect Brandon League to get out of the ninth unscathed, but was pleasantly surprised when he did.

    It’s still one game, and a sloppy one at that. And it goes to show that the Angels have jus as many problems as the Dodgers, especially with their pitching. But let’s hope this is indeed a turnaround point.

      Against my better judgement, I stuck it out and was glad I did. The first few innings, though, were farcical.

    R.I.P. Dr. Lewis Yocum. How many players owe their careers to him and his team? Sad.
