Great, that means there'll be a bunch of blind elderly people at today's game. But enough about the umpiring crew. What anyone can clearly see is that the Dodgers look like no team in their recent past. Whether Ned Colletti's baseball vision was to create an offensive juggernaut is debatable, but undoubtedly he was eying career years from Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier when signing them to new deals. Creating runs is the focal point of the Dodgers' attack right now; let's hope the pitching is rich and lends crafters of effective frames to this game.
I wonder what Doug Mientkiewicz is doing right now.
