“We’ll take ‘em any way we can get ‘em.”

I have been so torn this year regarding the Dodgers.  I tune in to listen to the legend that is Vin Scully, but it’s becoming more of a chore to watch the Dodgers as of late.  How many times can one watch the Dodgers get runners on and no outs, and do absolutely nothing with it?!  It’s literally starting to drive me crazy.  I mean look at last night for example.  We are facing the Reds, who are by all accounts one of the worst teams in MLB this year.  We managed 1 meager run in 9 innings, and the runner scored on a double play, but hey, whatever gets the job done, right?  “We’ll take ‘em any way we can get ‘em.”  Of course, the one glaring bright spot is Clayton Kershaw.  He didn’t strike out his usual 10 plus, but he only gave up 2 hits and thankfully his pitch count was low enough that he could go all 9, which was vital, especially after the 17 inning marathon yesterday.  Kersh is such a gamer! 

Kershaw card of the day:

  1. Nice card...
    Funny to see non Topps product autos of Kershaw
    I agree with you on watching team.
    Yesterday they get a pass from me though after the 17 inning marathon

    1. It's a shame that Upper Deck lost their license. I always thought their cards looked sharp. Topps has gotten lazy now with their product IMO...wouldn't it be crazy if the team all of a sidden got hot in the second half, carried it through the playoffs and FINALLY got to the WS? Haha I have a good imagination...if it does happen though, you know who predicted it ;-)
