The Cellar Dwellers

Today’s the start of a big series for the Dodgers against the San Diego cellar-dwelling Padres.  It doesn’t matter what SD’s record is, though.  If they’re out of contention, they live for one thing in November: eliminating the Dodgers from Postseason contention.  They’ll be out in force tonight, going that same extra mile the Jints went in the last series to snag every ball within 7 feet of them.  In my paranoid mind, they’re confrencing with the Giants right now, comparing notes on every Dodgers player on every level of relevance.

But only one thing can be certain for now: What was once a 4 1/2 game lead is now a 2 game lead, and we have 6 to play.  Sure, we can hope the Cards will do our work for us, but if the Dodgers want to make the Postseason, now would be the time to earn it, since there is no coasting when within a week of the season’s end, and SD and SF on tap.

Will post another blog before too long…

    How bout the favor those Redbirds did ya? I gotta say, we have a lot in common as I’m a STL fan living in Chicago (enemy territory), so K can relate your frustrations of the opposing side. I’ll be saying Go Dodger Blue for the playoffs.
