    dagwood, I'm visiting Chicago on the 20th for the weekend and have tickets purchased for a tour of Wrigley! I am so excited!! It will be my first non-Metrodome baseball stadium, can you imagine?! I can't wait. It's so classic and historic.

    I was at the Dodgers/Giants game tonight. This is close to my 40th Dodgers game, heck it could be more. Yes the Dodgers lost, but I enjoyed booing Barry for almost three hours and seeing him get hit by a pitch

    I know that is not nice...but I would be lying if I said I didn't like that

    I am going to see the Dodgers play the Mets later this year.

    I'm glad it's baseball season again, but our Diamondbacks better get their act together! It's painful to watch them get spanked so early on. Anyone with virgin ears better not be at my house when I'm watching a game cause the swear words fly and at a loud decibel.

    Some Pictures from the Dodgers Giants Game



    Look closely at this picture....yes that is Omarosa....yes she was booed loudly



    Just wanted to give you an idea of the security Barry had...that is him -- almost over in centre field, warming up...he moved further and further away each inning. All of the people you see there were his security for the night




    This was the aftermath of the guy being clobbered by the pitch. That was so painful to watch.

    This is a photo with no zoom. Just my view so you can see right were I was at.



    One of the cool actions shots I got of Barry.



    Stadium at night.



    Just a cool shot of LA that I took from the top of the park.

    At the beginning of every season, 6-8 teams have realistic chances of winning the World Series... this season it appears the Mets have used the NYY, Florida Marlins, Bos Red Sox blue print for winning the WS by buying the best players money can buy. (and i dont want to hear about trades, b/c the mets trades with the marlins were a crapfest of one sided trades as part of the marlins fire sale)

    It's great if you're a fan of one of those 6 teams... if you're a fan of one of the others- well let's just say i pay attention to how my 2 fantasy leagues are doing- havent checked the standings sheet- have NO clue what the Phillies record is... i can tell you what the players on my teams have done- but when espn shows a box score- i ahve no interest in who won- but who hit HR's and RBI's. this is what major league baseball has come to...

    Baseball has serious problems and it cant keep catering to the top 5 or 6 teams who have unlimited budgets... it used to be just the Expos and Royals were the only ones eliminated after opening day- now you can fit 20 teams into that category...

    I have never been a stats girl. When I moved to the States the first time when I was four my family started going to Dodgers games. I have gone to Dodgers games ever since. I couldn't care if they are the best team or the worst. They will always be my team.

    I have gone to two Angels games as well --- choir tour, but I know where my loyalty lies.

    When I went back to the UK for college we could only see the Sunday and Wednesday night ESPN games as those were the only ones aired on regular tv. That is how I got to know so many other teams. My loyalty to the Dodgers still remained the same. My brothers even took a sign to one of the ESPN games that said: Joelle May Be in England...but she is bleeding Dodger Blue

    anyone watching the Yankees/Red Sox match up? One of the best soap operas in sports.

    Tim Wakefield finally got his catcher back from San Diego -Doug Mirebelli's flight from San Diego arrived about 20 minutes before game time- so he was given a police escort (paid for by The Red Sox) and literally changed into his uniform on route to Fenway, arriving 3 minuted before game time- whereupon he jumped out of the police van, dashed through the players parking lot and directly onto the field -it was something like a 12 hour ordeal to get from San Diego into Boston. Anyhow, Mirebelli was given three standing ovations. All this for a back up catcher, no less- a back up catcher who was foolishly traded away back in December- never ever mess with a knuckleballers catcher!

    I agree and I'm a red Sox fan! But you are absolutley correct- the financial gap between the haves and the have nots is inexcusable. revenue sharing isn't working out well and you know imposing a penalty on teams which pass the spending cap does nothing to stop someone like George Steinbrenner -he has too much money to be adversely affected.
    MY complaint is ticket prices- Fenway park has the highest ticket prices in M.L.B. nearly 90.00 for a prime seat- event he cheap seats aren't cheap. The place is so bloody small and uncomfortable- every game is sold out over the phone the day tickets go on sale for the season. Parking can cost as high as 95.00 . The everyday fan is on the short end of the stick, unable to go tot the ballpark.
