Ahh, the official first day of spring and today that meant Its Time for Dodger Baseball! KCAL showed the Dodgers vs. Cardinals game with Vin Scully doing the calls. Plus I got to see our "A" team and with only 11 days left till the opener in Milwaukee, this should be a pretty good game. Couldn't have been better, right? Well, I had to sit through 9 innings of Cardinal domination. This was a painful game to watch, why?
I had to watch Hendrickson pitch underhand again. You are no Randy Johnson. I think the Lakers are looking for a big man.
I had to watch Scott Spiezio with his red goatee. Goatees in general are wrong, but RED? Come on.
I had to watch Saito give up a dinger to Chris Duncan that I think landed at the new Dodger spring training facility in Arizona.
I had to watch the Dodgers hit into five double plays - I thought Eric Karros was retired?
I had to watch Marlon Anderson play second base like Loney plays the outfield - two errors on two consecutive plays. The second play he threw it to a phantom second baseman and into leftfield. Nice fundamental baseball.
Plus there was a call-in poll to see how many games people thought the Dodgers were going to win this year. 55% of fans think they are going to win more than 93 games this season. I guess those people weren't watching this game.
