  • Howard Cole writes writes, "Every Time I Think I'm Out, They Pull Back In."
But look, L.A. has been an incredibly streaky club this year, as frustrating to watch over a stretch of time as any in recent memory. Just about every time they lose a few games – heartbreakers usually, with perhaps only a lone clutch hit the difference between victory and defeat – and we, the fans throw up our hands in resignation, the Dodgers do something dramatic to give us hope.
I understand the feeling.
 "They taught me how to send a Twitter and I'm enjoying that immensely. It is fantastic because now I can see how important baseball is for our listeners. I'm getting follower from Argentina, from Costa Rica, from Venezuela ... from all over the world. I had a hint of that, but now I am seeing. They are asking me for more information on the Twitter. I am enjoying that very much."
  • Mark Langill reminds us that Steve Garvey started his consecutive games streak of 1,207 on September 3, 1975.  Yesterday was the 37th anniversary.
  • Congrats to the Isotopes for winning the PCL Division Title, via Jonathan Raymond of MiLB.
  • Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle reminds us that Mike Piazza tuns 44 today.
  • Mad respect here.  Check out this phenomenal shot made by David Wetherill in table tennis at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London.  Wow!
