A message from Major League Baseball before I start this drivel. For one lucky baseball loving, red blooded, testosterone raging man or lesbian comes an opportunity of a lifetime. He/she gets a DATE WITH ALYSSA MILANO!

If you want to as close to her as Barry Zito, Carl Pavano and Tubby have been, just fill out the entry form here and good luck. And from the looks of this list all you need to show is promise – actual performance in the clutch is not important.

As for the Dodger’s game my oh my oh my. I could easily sit here typing away words that trash the club and bemoan the fact it looks like they’ve given up the season and will go nowhere. But they’ve done this too many times and always seem to be in contention of a division title.

Take last year for instance. After the All-Star break they promptly lost 12 of 14 games before going on a tear in August and September to end up in a tie in first place. So I’m not going to say everything is hopeless. But we have to face the facts. If the Dodgers do not get the offense going, they have absolutely no chance to compete in September for a division title.

The Dodgers have been proactive this week in trying to remedy this. To the delight of the Dodger Faithful they brought up Matt Kemp and James Loney from the minors, and Grady Little has moved Useless to batting in the eighth spot. The youngsters will hopefully provide the pop and energy that will oil up the creak in the club.

And that pop and energy is sorely needed from the Dodgers.
