Are we out of the parking lot yet?

I went to the Saturday LA at LA game, and it was super fun. We had Jeff action. We had Juan finally doing something that didn't make me think he sucked. We had drunk people running onto the field. We had a better anthem singer than has ever graced Angel Stadium. We had shady seats on the fied level. I tried to post from the game, but that didn't work out so well. It was a great game, and we spent half as much time driving to and fro as we do to Angel stadium. I couldn't believe how many people arrived late and left early, I mean I've heard about it happening, but on a Saturday? I would never leave a game early when my team was only down by 2. My husband says it's because the exiting and parking situation is so sucky, knowing what lies before them, many of the fans elect to leave early. The ones that don't leave sure know how to make noise as if they were at their full numbers, though, wow.

The most important thing to come out of the weekend series is that Jeff would need to string together a series of impressive offensive games to really get back in the DH mix in a real way. 'Cause Juan Rivera hit so well in Dodger stadium that I think he should become a Dodger. When Josh Paul has more home runs than you do, it doesn't bode well for your future as a power-hitter. Jeff has always been a little streaky, but this season can't even be defined as streaky.

The news broke yesterday that Kevin "Mr. Goggles Revisited" Gregg has been sent to the salt mines where he can get real work in and hopefully, suck less. [We aways referred to Ben Weber as "Mr. Goggles" and when he was sent into a game we would quake with fear]. Let us now do the dance of joy.

and we're done.
