The beginning of April brings two certainties to this college student: Baseball and Midterms/Papers. Today, I’m going to try to mesh the two of them together, with a rhetorical analysis due by gametime tomorrow. That’ll be fun.
Looking forward to today’s game. We’re starting Randy Wolf against his previous squad. They’re starting Chris Young, who was good last year, but Andre Ethier has owned him regardless. We’ll see if that holds true today.
From the past blog’s comments: Koufax1963, I noticed the change in excitement after LA got Manny. I only made one game last year, the July 30th game against the Jints, and even though it was a Dodgers-Giants game, the crowd was dead. Only coming alive to mercilessly boo Andruw Jones. It was Chad Billingsley’s first ever CG shutout. And the crowd, while applauding loudly, didn’t seem like they were watching a squad 1-2 games out of 1st place at the time.
Needless to say, bringing Manny has made all the difference. I joke to my Giants fans friends “How’d we get here? Now SF has the stellar rotation, and LA has the LF Offense machine the rest of the league loves to boo.”
I’ll see if I can’t knock out another drawing tonight.
