Sunday Update on Monday

I decided not to do stats today. Instead let’s focus on the events of the week, which were news worthy……….some good and some bad. Let’s start with the good.  Last Sunday, Andre was host to “Andre’s Carne Asada Sundays”, which Nomar Garciaparra had begun. Andre is graciously carrying on this tradition, and I can’t wait to go to the next one.  On that same day, Dodger Stadium was giving away Ethier practice jerseys for kids 14 and under.  The only thing I thought, I wish I was 14 again, but then again…………..maybe not. 


This is my niece Hailee, who was at the game with her parents, and I am glad to say she is an Andre fan now.


Now, I  couldn’t call myself bleeding blue Dodger fan if I didn’t weigh-in on the Manny issue.  As you may know I live with Giants fans, and I wasn’t exactly quiet about the Barry Bonds issue, and now to have a similar issue come up with my team, it will make for some interesting discussions around the dinner table to say the least.  Anyhow, I believe in second chances, but in this case, Manny really needs to talk to the team and the words need to mean something in order to get my respect for him back.  I teach first grade and I give mulitple second chances, but they are children, who most of time, don’t even know what they are doing is wrong.  Manny is not a child and he knew what he was doing was wrong.  So, he really needs to make this right with his team, and us die hard Dodger fans or I will be hardpressed to accept him back in left field, and that will be difficult seeing how the current left fielder isn’t exactly what most Dodger fans were hoping for.  I am starting to understand how some Boston fans felt when the real “Manny being Manny” reared it’s ugly head. I knew it would happen someday. I just didn’t think it would happen 33 games into the season.
