Not that this is all about me, but didn't I tell you the Dodgers would get seven runs today? Even better, they got the win. Inspired by my bold prediction, Manny Ramirez and James Loney hit back-to-back jacks in the second to rattle Max Scherzer, and we never looked back from the three-run frame. Vicente Padilla gets the win, which got even more secure when we added three runs in the eighth and ninth frames, and the Dodgers kept pace ahead of the winning Rockies and Giants, still 3.5 and 5.5 GB, respectively. 23 games to go.
I will try and write more later, but right now, I'm riding my clairvoyant high.
