With the Dodgers set to do battle with the Cardinals in St. Louis this weekend, today we pull out one of Dre’s infamous ” Stadium Bytes “, where Dre here tries to do some play by play with his iphone among other things captured inside the walls of Chavez Ravine. Lately, it seems like most of my attempts of play by play have been with Kid Marlz, aka MDario83. Never a dull moment kid !
The clip, which will be featured shortly, was 3 weeks ago on 626 night, 6/26/2014. 626 is the area code of the San Gabriel Valley where I grew up. Andre Ethier is at the plate against the Cardinals Adam Wainwright in a scoreless tie. Adam Wainwright has been making some news this week for the Cardinals , be it getting the starting nod over Kershaw in the all-star game, or having his quote on grooving a pitch to Derek Jeter taken out of context . We also cover on this Thursday evening, Throwback Thursday, which we talk about old times, and of course, a throwback to Game 2 of the 2009 NLDS, where we would focus on , of course, Andre Ethier and Adam Wainwright. ( Social media has sure changed the way we view certain things. How did Thursday end up being the official “throwback” day. How did area codes aligned with dates on the calendar become linked as special days ? ) In Game 2 of the ’09 NLDS, Ethier would have a ket at bat against Wainwright, and after the game, Wainwright would give his thoughts on Dodger fans waving white rally towels in the now famous ” Matt Holliday ” game. Wainwright sure isn’t afraid to give his opinions…
So how does Dre fare in this at-bat against Adam ?
Back On The Diamond
The Dodgers open the 2nd half tomorrow night in a 3 game set against the Cardinals in St. Louis . Dan Haren takes the mound for The Blue as they look to get things off to the right start in the 2nd half. Lance Lynn will toe the rubber for the Cardinals. The last time these two teams met the Dodgers took 3 of 4 from the Red Birds. Since then, the Red Birds have gained 6 1/2 games in the NL Central standings and are only 1 game off the pace for the top spot behind the Brewers. Both teams started off slowly but a recent surge by these two have put them back in the heat of their divisional races. These two could very well end up playing each other again come October.
Highlights from the 1st Half…
What highlight’s await us come the 2nd half ? GO DODGERS !!!
