As of April 28th, I am now employed by Scan Digital. I’ll give you three guesses what I do as a scanner technician at Scan Digital. I work the night shift, which is 3:30 to midnight, Monday through Friday. You know what that means? No weeknight Dodger games. But it frees me up to go during a weekday afternoon and Saturday games. And it means I can save up for good tickets and a new camera!
Since I am currently out of favorite players (and my friends told me not to pick any new favorites since they seem to leave the team within a day) … I decided to see how my minor leaguers are doing.
While I was at the El Segundo Library on Wednesday without any internet reception, I went through my game log and figured since I am close to my 150th game, it was time to look over my stats.
A few days ago I posted links about ground crews and tarps. Well, I didn’t look through the MLB video archives till tonight.
I know it’s expected, but it doesn’t mean I have to like it. Apparently, long time Texas Rangers fan Nola Pearman probably thinks the same thing. In case you missed it, here’s the link to the story of how Nola Pearman “follows home run protocol“.
Can you guess who wins?
I thought I wrote about it, but I guess not. After all, I haven’t exactly been faithful to writing on this blog.
During Tuesday night’s game between the Dodgers and the Giants, I happened to glance up during the commercials. I rarely get to watch the games on TV. Most of the time I’m either a) at the game; b) listening it to the radio, or c) not able to catch the game at all. This time, for once, I was actually able to watch it. I see it’s a Dodger commercial with different “it’s time for” slogans going across. Towards the end of it, I see Travis Schlichting going over to the baseline wall and reaching for a sharpie from a fan and then it ended with fireworks. I saw Travis and immediately said, “aww Travis!” A split-second later it was followed by, “wait! That’s me!”
Okay, so it was an exhibition game. But it was still my first baseball game of the 2011 year, though not the 2011 season. I suppose I could list it as game A and the other game, Game B and then start the count on Opening Day. I was very much ready for Monday’s exhibition game against the Angels.
Not sure what’s going to happen with my Dodger blog this year. I don’t post much anyway. And when I did, I usually had tons of photos to share. Not going to be the case really this year. My camera decided to retire itself last year. Funny enough, the very last photo I took with it was of Jay Gibbons in left field. It was the first Saturday game of September, against the Giants I believe. Correct me if I’m wrong. I’m too lazy right now to look it up.
