Dodgers man handling the Twins 15-0: What this ment to the Fans
On a day where is seemed like the dark days were even darker the Dodgers gave us a reminder why we love this team. Yesterday Morning news broke that the Dodgers filed for Chapter 11 Bankrupcy thanks to Frank McCourt. Seemed like everyone wanted to talk about the Frank McCourt issue over the Dodgers thrilling win over the Anaheim Angels and Kershaw’s back to back Complete Games. It also seemed like everyone pretty much forgot about the game that night as well. All the talks and jokes were on Chapter 11 Bankrupsy and so on. Well lets fast foward to the game wondering if the Dodgers will even score runs seeing they’ve struggled alot but that night the Dodgers play washed away all the pain. The Dodgers managed to have a field day in Target Field scoring 15 runs, getting 25 Base hits and All but Ethier got an RBI. Trent Oeltjen and Tony Gwynn had big games, Casey Blake got a HR, and Matt Kemp…..Was Matt Kemp. The players weren’t worried about whats going on and they know thats not their job to. They just played baseball.
After the game I saw on my twitter account all the Dodger fans having a ball with this and it was a good thing to see. As a Dodger fan that was a well needed pick me up after all the crap that had nothing to do with Baseball at all but as I sat there I wondered what did this win mean to the Fans. Well I can’t speak for everyone but to me it felt great because when I see games its always an escape from the crap that has nothing to do with the game on the field but this win FURTHER showed that Baseball is played on a field and not a court room or anything. I also hope its the start of something new with the Dodgers. I know everyone will say this was the Dodgers taking out their frustraitons out on the Twins with the McCourt issue and Bankruptsy but it wasn’t It was the Dodgers finally playing great baseball getting a well needed blow out. Thats all. Players are going to worry about how to turn this thing around instead of McCourt, MLB, or anything most of us worry about.
In the end This was something that I hope get Dodger fans spirits up and minds off this whole drama for a while. Lets just hope the Dodgers keep this up on the twins. One final message to my Fellow Dodger Fans: No matter the situation, Record, or any circumstance NEVER be emberassedto be a Dodger Fan and NEVER turn your back on the Team that you loved for oh so long, The Past and Present players that we adored, and the Memories that was brought to you. WE ARE the most Loyal Fan Base in the MLB and lets continue to show why no other fan base can EVER touch the Los Angeles Dodgers fan base!
