As a faithful Dodger fan, I know we’re supposed to “think blue.” However, I think the Dodger faithful are beginning to turn blue as the Dodgers hit the low of the season. Eric GagnÈ is out until mid-2006. I only got to hear “Welcome to the Jungle” once this season. It was GagnÈ’s first game off the disabled list in mid-May. It was extremely disheartening to see him give up two homeruns back to back to the Atlanta Braves (it was not a save opportunity).
Even after “terrible Tuesday” the Dodgers held on to win against the San Diego Padres, the first place team in the NL West. They also snapped an 8 game losing streak. Hopefully they can tie the 4-game series tomorrow and go on to win the series against the Angels in the second Freeway Series.
Jon Weisman at Dodger Thoughts helps keep things in perspective and make sense of all things Dodger related. Dodger Blues reminds us that Dodgers fans must have a good sense of humor just to get deal with the ups and downs.
