Dodgers Lead League in Bleeding Dodger Blue

"You must be this tall to work in upper management."

From "Bleeding Blue" by Greg Patton at

[Luis] Gonzalez nodded toward Tommy Lasorda during Wednesday's news conference and joked, "Tommy doesn't even have to give me the speech. I'm ready to bleed Dodger blue."

[Jason] Schmidt grew up in Washington, but said, "I come from a Dodgers household and I married into a Dodgers household."

Warms the cockles and all, but if good intentions were home runs, the Dodgers wouldn't be shopping for a power bat.

(Thanks to DT poster "Midwest Blue" for the tip.)
