Sitting in McCarran Aiport in Vegas, it’s quite humorous watching all of the ‘Hungover’ people desperately waiting for their flights, and their trip back to reality. Fortunately I am not one of them, as I anxiously anticipate my arrival at Camelback Ranch (CBR) and my first Dodger Spring training.
Rather than pontificate on the Dodger woes, losers of 7 games in the last 5 days, I direct you to Eric Stephen’s comprehensive analysis of all the latest Dodger news from camp at True Blue LA.
Good days for Lasorda’s Lair favorites Rubby De La Rosa, Josh Lindblom and Jerry Sands. Jay Gibbons actually got a hit today to lift his average to .091. Jerry Sands OBP is .522 in 23 Spring plate appearances. It would be sad to see Xavier Paul, who also had a hit in 3 AB’s today, simply given up on and released for Gibbons who, according to Jon Heyman at Sports Illustrated looks like two/thirds the man he used to be, and sadly he’s playing like even less.
Good news is things are going to turn around for the Blue Crew once I get to camp, and I can’t wait to see Kenley Jansen pitch in person tomorrow, full pitch by pitch coverage in stunning 1080p HD courtesy of the Sony ‘Bloggie’ cam.
Hilarious article over at Mike Scoscia’s Tragic Illness, about Aaron Miles bizarre journey from roster longshot to potential starting second baseman. Definitely worth the read.
Don’t forget live coverage from CBR starts tomorrow and continues all week long.
