Let Go Dodgers!!! Let Go Dodgers...
The very best way to grab the lead in your division is to beat the team that is leading the division. After an eight game losing streak, which looked like the end of the Dodgers run for the title, they bounced back with two wins against the league leading Diamondbacks. If you happened to be at Chase Field on Saturday, Manny Ramirez put on an absolute show. I know you have read about it by this time, but being there was something special. He is a true Hall of Famer with a magical bat. For those of you who only see games at Dodger Stadium, on the road the big hitters are booed ferociously. However, when they step up and deliver, it can quiet a stadium of 40 - 50 thousand people. Manny did just that with his performance on Saturday. Manny is the real deal super star doing everything the Dodgers could ask of him. There are other players stepping up as well; young players like Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp, James Loney - these guys will be around to help the Dodgers for many years. The way this road trip started, coming home 2 1/2 games out of first place gives you something to play for. Let's go big Blue!
