With the rest of Tweedle Don`s ( Tweedle Ned`s ) Lineup, languishing in, what must be, The worst Dodger "June Swoon" in the 50 Years of Los Angeles Dodger recorded History; It is somewhat worthwhile, to note the "Gustsy" efforts of reserve Infielder Jerry Hairston. Forget all the Ownership Bazzillions trade rumours ( At least for this Season ), J. Hairston deserves a starting Job in the Dodger Lineup ! Between Ellis and Hairston, someone should be able to remedy our woes at 3rd Base ? Thus with M. Kemp`s return J. Rivera can move back to the safety of Left Field, and J. Loney can go back to "gathering up ground balls" at 1st Base.
In The Wind: Had some reservations bout this L. Cruz kid, early in last nights game gainst The Reds, liked the way he swung the Bat, but a fielding miscue, made me start to think about a quick bus ticket back to site 51 ? That was until he gave J. Cueto a ride into the gap in Left, and then stole Home, to push the Breathless Trolley Dodgers past the Reds into the Clubhouse. Things Are On The Up and Up !
Hope T. Lilly "Gets well Soon" ! And lets stop blaming 8 year Veteran Ace "Doc" Billingsley for not filling every breach in the Dodgers Crumb Cake Defenses !
