Victory Dodger Win Game 1

James Loney is his name! that's the Way you man up... down two runs and BA-BOOM!! Dodgers go up two runs with a James Loney grand slam! In playoff baseball you never know who will step up... believe it or not there is a lot of pressure to perform when you have the world watching. Some of the best players in the world have lost their mojo when it comes to playoff baseball. Pressure, some say: " it can bust a water pipe". In the game of baseball you have to rise to the occasion, blockout your surrounding and focus on the job at hand.
The Dodgers have first blood winning game one of the playoffs for the first time since the 1988 World Series. This is a good omen as momentum swings the Dodgers way. Another plus you need the remember is Joe Torre is as cool as the other side of the pillow, being lead by Joe, the Dodgers looks very comfortable. Derek Lowe did a great job and had great command on the mound to keep the Dodgers in the game after giving up a couple of runs. Great job Dodgers.

It must be totally awesome for you to watch these games from the perspective of being a former professional player and World Series Star. I enjoy your insights. I have always liked the Dodgers.

I remember being in an airport, I believe it was Montreal or Toronto and having the opportunity to get the autograph of Tommy Lasorda.

Keep up with your insights.
