Take that, Shane. We're looking forward to our shipment of rice-a-roni.
The Dodgers took two out of three from the Giants this weekend, grinding out both victories. The only blemish was Yhencey Brazoban giving up a grand slam Pedro Feliz, and who knows what is wrong with Jose Lima.
In the meantime, the Shawn Green issue worked itself out, Odalis Perez cemented himself as the team's ace, and if people like Alex Cora are going to keep hitting, then we love the Dodgers' lineup.
LAist would now like the Dodgers to take advantage of the schedule. We'd rather not see the Azul play the Giants with the division undecided, so with a magic number of five and four games coming up against the Rockies at home, let's hope the Dodgers can make the season-ending series irrelevant. This week, LAist will be rooting for the Padres, a team with wild card aspirations of its own, when they host the evil Giants.
And in all of our Dodger talk, LAist has again alienated the Angels, who find themselves just one game back of the A's after taking two of three from Oakland. And Anaheim will be in Oakland for the season's final weekend.
