First Place

On August 11, 2006, in General, by Neil Stevens

The Dodgers are alone in first place, and Greg Maddux has a lot to do with it.

When I think about it, him coming to the Ravine is a lot like Karl Malone arrival with the Lakers. Maddux was hitting his peak with the Braves right around when I started really getting into baseball (and in those days, the Braves and Dodgers were both in the NL West). Likewise, Karl Malone’s Jazz would knock out the Lakers every year right around when I started watching basketball seriously.

Let’s hope nobody ELSE gets hurt this year. The injuries to the Dodger pitching have been so bad, that nobody in the bullpen at the start of the season is there now.

We miss you Eric Gagné, but at this rate we’ll get to go on without you to October.
