Do you know what dozens of bottles of champagne and cans of beer do to a clubhouse?

Well I got a nice whiff of it this morning and picture it: you’re back in a frathouse in the middle of spring semester just as the scents of spilt beer and worn socks, shoes and boxers comingle into a moldy suffocating mess.

But that’s the price of victory which everyone in the clubhouse was willing to deal with.

“It’s awesome,” Dodgers starter Randy Wolf said. “It’s a great opportunity to [clinch the division] where you grew up.”

In the afterglow of last night’s celebration it was time to get back to business. Sort of. On the whiteboard at the entrance of the clubhouse it was written, “The muppets are running the show today.”

Manager Brad Ausmus is happy the team can just play like kids.

“Today’s just all about the fun,” Ausmus said. “We’re fortunate that we’re in a position that we can have fun like this.”
