WAIT TILL NEXT YEAR
fans remain up in arms about the team's inability to overtake the St. Louis Cardinals
in the recent National League Championship Series. For Dodger folk ready to jump head first into Chavez Ravine consider these two facts: Where were the Cardinals a year ago and where are the God awful, stinky smelly, dope smoking, PED taking, Kazoo playing, Donkey riding, orange and black wearing San Francisco Giants right now.
Answers: The Cardinals had just blown a 3-1 lead in the NLCS and were doing what we're doing now (Watching the Fall Classic on TV.) and the "God Awfuls" are currently one of the worst teams in all of baseball.
So all is not lost.
Plus, the Dodgers come back with a formibable crew which includes the best pitcher in baseball, if not the best one-two punch in Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke
. Potentially, we have a strong outfield, depending on health, and our first basebman is one of the best in the business and a clutch hitter, as well and are all signed for next season.
Granted, we have some holes to fill in the pourous error-prone infield. I love Mark Ellis
but he ain't the answer. Juan Uribe
had a nice comeback season but we could easily move an unhealthy and aging Hanley Ramirez
to third and sign a sure-handed SS like Steve Drew
! However, I do NOT believe the Guggenheim's
should write a $300 million check to Yankee Second Baseman Robinson Cano
, which is being bantied about in the halls of Dodger Stadium
. ($30 million for 10 years.) I wouldn't pay $300 million for Frank, Brooks
, or even Jackie Robinson,
let alone Robinson Cano
WAY TO GO, WAITRESS! WAY TO GO, ELLEN
I've always liked Ellen Degeneres, particularly her taste in women. (Sorry, it was too easy.) But seriously folks, did you hear the story about her reaction to an act of kindness? We pick up the story in Concord, New Hampshire
the capital of the Granite State, where a compassionaite waitress overheard two uniformed women trying to match their lunch with their budget since they were not working because of the government shutdown. So Sarah Hoidahl
picked up their lunch, figuratively speaking and left a note which read:
"Thanks to the government shutdown the people like you that protect this country are not getting paid, however I still am. Lunch is on me thank you for serving ladies! Have a good day!".
The note went viral on facebook, after the two National Guard Soldiers shared their good fortune with the nation. Degeneres invited Hoidahl on her TV show. Once in Hollywood, she jokingly gave her $27.75, the price of the meals, a 50 inch TV because they discovered Hoidahl's was broken.
But Degeneres brought the house down when she bestowed upon the caring young mother of two a check for $10,000!!! Nicely done!
Ain't life grand!!!!

In the meantime, That's what's really going on. I'll rap to you tomorrow!
