- I sympathize with what Jon is saying at Dodger Thoughts. I too would keep a caught foul ball, and would never consider handing it over to anybody.
- Greg, why do you taunt me so? He post up a recent autographed card of former Dodgers prospect Carlos Santana at Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle. He would have been a very formidable bat in our lineup.

- The screaming about Javy Guerra is a bit irrational. Remember, patience is a virtue in Baseball. Steve Dilbeck seems to agree as he writes that "Javy Guerra Has Earned the Right to Rebound as Dodgers Closer."

RB: It was really big. We had three teams and it was the only time a city ever had three teams. There were three different rooting interests and everybody was a real, real fan of their team. Giants fans were big for the Giants, and the same for Yankees and Dodgers fans. Everybody thought their team was the greatest.
