The “Mighty” Los Angeles Dodgers Stroll into Town to Take on the Philadelphia Phillies
The “Mighty” Los Angeles Dodgers stroll into South Philadelphia tonight to kick off a three game series against the Philadelphia Phillies or, the “Fighten’” Phils. When I say “Fighten’” Phils, I mean that lightly. When I say “Mighty Dodgers”, I mean that seriously. For the love of God, the Dodgers are 40-8 since June 22. That is the best 48-game stretch in the MLB since 1942, when the St. Louis Cardinals went 41-7 from Aug. 11 – Oct 1.
The Dodgers have been led by Hanley Ramirez, who is back to being Hanley, some guy named Clayton Kershaw, and Cuban sensation Yasiel Puig. Puig is a flat-out freak. He has been with the Dodgers for three months and the lowest OBP he has is .352, which occurred in July. He had a .467 OBP in June and in August thus far, he has .500 OBP. Overall, he is hitting .368 with 11 bombs and 27 RBI in 242 AB’s. Did I say freak yet?
By the way, Roy Halladay‘s fast ball was clocked between 85 to 87 mph in his simulated outing, according to a witness. Who’s excited?! *Crickets*…
