I’m sorry for being a bad Dodgerist. The interweb hiccup we experienced here at LAist on Sunday threw me off a little. I also had troubles writing this little piece.

I don’t like it when people get really gung ho about their home team, homerism if you will. These people tend to be quite myopic and not rooted in reality. So believe me when I say that this is hard to write.

I really like this Dodger’s team. By really like I mean one step below outright love.

First of all I have to give kudos to My Boyfriend. In his second season in the majors the expected decrease in productivity hasn’t happened. So far he’s hitting .356 and making terrific plays on defense.

Take Monday night’s game. With the Dodgers up 3-0 and Chad Tracy on first in the bottom of the fourth inning, Carlos Quentin hit a deep double to left field. DUI, knowing Viejito’s arm is like jelly, ran deep down the leftfield line. He caught the relay throw from Viejito and threw the ball home with the ferocity of a Mack truck. My Boyfriend used his left leg to block home plate and tagged Chad Tracy out preventing a score. So far My Boyfriend is hands down the MVP of the Dodgers if not the league.
