OPENING DAY SIGHTS AND SOUNDS

Opening Day.  It’s baseball’s version of the New Year.  Though 7 games into the season, there’s still something special about attending your favorite teams home opener.  You know, being out in a sun splashed stadium with 56,000 of your closest friends, chowing down on all the Dodger Dogs with your little brother of 25 years, and watching Manny , Kemp, Casey, and Dre all go yard in a 9-5 victory over our division rival Arizona Diamondbacks. 

 

Pitching still remains a thorn on our side as Kershaw, who really is gonna be a stud some day, struggled with his command again and the bullpen was not much better either, most notably Ramon Ortiz, allowing 3 runs in the 7th after retiring the first two Snakes.  Of all the Dodger pitchers, including last nights 11 inning loss, only Hiroki Kuroda has made it through the 6th inning on.  Not good. 

 

OK, back to Opening Day, before I share some sights, here is a feature that the Dodgers will be doing in between innings this season called ” This and That “, where on the video board a player is given a choice of two items of anything and on Opening Day, the player was Matt Kemp. 

 

THIS AND THAT WITH MATT KEMP
