Juan Pierre Must Be Juicing

How else to explain this, his first home run as a Dodger, in the sixth inning of tonight's game vs. Pittsburgh?

The home run is the 13th in Pierre's nine-year career. And it wasn't an Alex-Cora-off-the-glove cheapie, either--this ball went deep into the right field seats, atop the scoreboard wall.

In 2008, Juan Pierre now has more home runs than Mark Sweeney. And only two fewer HRs than Andruw Jones!

Holy smokes, maybe there is something magical about this year after all. Congratulations, Juan!

It went right into the empty stands at Pittsburgh. Is this place a ghost-town?

You won't believe me if I told you that I called Pierre's HR. But I did! See Dodger Thoughts post #16 today.

I see potential in this one.

Still didnt make me forget Ethier...lets hope we can say the same for Torre.

It was Pierre's first HR in 1,070 AB's. His last one was 9/18/07—an inside-the-park job.

I Wonder If Juan Pierre Is Named in the Mitchell Report

Nice call, Neeebs!

It's morning. The sky hasn't fallen. The sun is out. We're not overrun with locusts. I guess the world hasn't ended.

This still feels surreal.

I'm still planning on finding someone who will make a $1 bet with me for every game Juan Pierre plays next year that he doesn't hit a homerun. I'll offer 150 to 1 odds. I figure in the long run I'll come out ahead.
