Marlins @ Dodgers August 26, 2012: Vin!

I’m on a bus again, this time headed home, so if past tradition holds true, the Dodgers will have acquired Dwight Howard, Roy Hobbs, and 1965 Sandy Koufax befoe my trip is over.

Despite all the player movement craziness of the last few days, no news can be bigger than today’s announcement that Vin Scully, the greatest man in sports, will be returning in 2013. I’m not sure it could have been any other way; how could you want to look away from this team any time soon?

Nick Punto makes his Dodger starting debut playing second and hitting second, because that’s what second basemen do.

Feel free to correct my oversight... Seems like the non-like for Ethier on this blog (10 for 10) precludes even the smallest comment/mention and, overall, appears to rival Torre's distaste for Stults a few ago... Personally, i am glad to see Eric back in the majors...as well as Andre record-setting success!

Yeah a loss sucks, but it is good to see a team that can score in any inning.

 @KSR7827 it's definitely time to start beating up on NL West teams again, like they did early in the year.
