Ranked #1 and #2

We are getting noticed.

Yahoo has their new Power Rankings up and they have the Dodgers vaulting from #6 to #1.

And then one day it is time to let go.

You stick it out for as long as you can, if only because of the good times. And, damn, for the kids.

But, the eyes go dull, and the laughter goes away and, you know, let’s be honest, you’ve had your eye on that hot little number from L.A. anyway.

This immediately caused me to check ESPN for their Rankings, and would you believe it they have us at #2. Heck, they even acknowledge that regardless of our stellar hitting of late it has been our pitching that has really impressed.

The Dodgers scored 50 runs to go 6-0 at home and have a team BA of .302, but pitching has been their biggest asset (.200 BAA).
Of course, that was before the two loses to the Astros. (The ranking is from April 20th) Nevertheless, it's nice to get the attention.
