Dodgers @ Rockies May 1, 2012: New Day Rising

How rad would it be if the Dodgers were in the midst of a homestand right now? Sure, the press conference tomorrow at 10am (aired on every network from KCAL to CSPAN to Home & Garden, and featuring about a billion people) will be fun and all, but what if Magic & Friends could have been introduced in the middle of a game just hours after the paperwork became official? I’m trying to imagine a scene like that, and the mere thought of it makes me giddy. Oh well, I suppose next week against the Giants will have to do.

In the meantime, there’s baseball to be played, and it would certainly be nice if the Dodgers didn’t come home for their big moment on a losing streak, so it’d do them well to take the second game of their series in Colorado. Putting Adam Kennedy higher than 12th in the lineup isn’t a great way to do that, though since I have a post and animated GIF already planned on his complete uselessness later this week, you can bet money that he’ll go 3-4.
