Vin Scully, on Dog Hero Ted Lilly

Vin Scully, from last night's telecast:

Ted Lilly's wife, Natasha, has her Bachelor's Degree in Animal Science at Cal Poly, and then she got her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Davis. We bring that up to give you an insight into Ted Lilly, who is very quiet, very soft-spoken, very serious, and a very good competitor.

They were out with their dog, a Lab, and the Lab was attacked by a pit bull. And Lilly went after the pit bull, which is not exactly a nice thing to do, pried the jaws of the pit bull open to release his Lab. Got his hand cut up a little bit, but the big thing was he saved the Lab. Right thumb was torn.

So he is that kind of a guy. Quiet, peaceful, but deadly determined.

We were talking before about the career of an Albert Pujols. I mean, Ted Lilly was drafted in 1996.

Fastball, unintentionally fouled back....

I love you Vin Scully. It is a wonderful quality in you that you are so quick to tell us of the goodness and kindness of others when we all know that your humanity out shines anyone you could ever speak of.

Anyone notice that VIn has been on an absolute tear lately? En fuego. It's like he's caught a second wind.
