A Beard Sighting in Rancho

image

Brian Wilson started last nights game for the Dodgers Single A Rancho Cucamunga Quakes, going 1 inning, retiring the side in order on 12 pitches , including one strikeout. 

3 innings later…

The crowd waits patiently for their chance to greet Brian.  It’s almost that Spring Training vibe where players are most accessible…

And here he is up close, Brian Wilson, signing for pretty much every fan . 

As a regular at Single A Rancho Cucamunga Quakes games , aside from seeing a potential future Dodger, like Scott Van Slyke ( I never saw Puig play here unfortunately) you never know what big league star will come by for a rehab assignment.  And many times, staff at the games don’t know either until gametime.  From what I have been told by a couple ushers, the fans and players are usually good toward each other.  As witnessed here last night, nobody really went over the top and everyone who waited patiently for Wilson’s autograph came away happy…

Back at The Ravine…..

Zack Greinke will take to the hill for the Blue as they try to avoid a 3 game sweep at the hands of the hated ones. The Giants have dominated the first two of home series openers and at 5-1 are off to a fast start themselves. Matt Cain will take to the mound for the Giants in what should be a pitchers duel.

So are you guys already panicking ? Of course you are ! It’s what most fans do, especially when our team just got dominated these past two games against our longtime hated rivals. Even with all the high expectationa you all rrally didn’t think The Blue would just coast through the entire season all the way into October did you ? Let’s alson not forget that 162 games is a long season. Even the best hit rough spots , such as Hyun-Jin Ryu did on Friday. Let’s also not forget injuries happen to, with Kershaw and Wilson in the DL, Kershaw possibly until June. So having said that , I want to see who steps up in Kershaw’s absence.

Relax folks. Nobody ever wins a World Series in April…
