Things I Wanted To Say But Got Too Annoyed To
I Will Not Mention Tuesday's Loss (Much)Deja vu, all over again? 4-1 on Monday, an execrable 6-1 loss on Tuesday that included a rare meltdown by ex-Athletic starter Danny Haren. But today? Another 4-1 win, partly fueled by back-to-back jacks by Torii Hunter and Alberto Callaspo (of all people!). Ervin Santana got a win, something of a pleasant surprise.
Dodgers Call Up Rubby De La Rosa, But Have Little Else To Crow AboutThe callup of top prospect Rubby De La Rosa was by far the best news for the Dodgers this week. The actual news of the series has been all but uniformly bad for the Blue; not only did they lose the first and last games of the series, but enemy of the people Frank McCourt thinks he can make payroll this month after all. I hope his loans come with a blood oath.
Update 5/26: Apparently Frank was never worried about this upcoming payroll, but the first one in June, and that because there's a big bonus due to the still-not-playing-in-major-league-baseball Manny Ramirez. We'll see, but either way, I do wish he would depart.
