I arrived at Union Station about 4:45 pm and there were already a handful of Dodger fans waiting for a ride. There was a METRO worker there saying that a bus wouldn't leave for about another hour, but then noticed that there were enough to fill a bus and called one early. The bus ride took about 20 minutes and I finally made it to the stadium. The bus was clean and there was a nice Dodger logo on the side. I'm sure it doesn't help the McCourt wallet as he loses money on parking, but I hope it helps the environment.
The game was great at the start. It was nice to see the offense purring along. Martin looks like he is out of his funk from last season. Maybe he should be moved up in the lineup. DeHitt wasn't doing much and with Belly hitting that pinch hit double, could there be more 2nd base controversy? Pitching was a different story. Thunder Thighs looked strong at the start, but then he looked like he ran out of gas and started to fall behind batters. Then a call to the bullpen is like a call to the cable company - they may or may not show up at the scheduled time. When Carlos gave up that home run, the crowd just died.
We had to leave early because of work and I arrived at home just in time to see Casey tie up the game (I thought that one was gone). I stayed up watching the game until the end and went to sleep disappointed. How long can we say, "It's still early in the season?" We need to get our pitching act together and fast. Hopefully Kuroda will right the ship. Go Blue!
