Did anyone feel that earthquake and aftershock last night at around 6:30? According to seismologists the epicenter was the first baseline at Shea Stadium in Queens, NY. The rumbles started after the newest oldest Dodger pitcher David Wells laid a bunt down the third baseline and tromped to first base to beat out the throw.

The aftershock occurred later in the inning when Matt Kemp hit a bloop single to right field. David Wells came charging home to score only his seventh run in his entire career.

It’s amazing that I could feel that rumbling from New York and not the two shakers we had recently in Chatsworth.
