Dodgers Look to Continue Cubs Curse In NLDS

by @ 9:12 am. Filed under 2008 Dodgers, Baseball Bag, Baseball Glove

The Dodgers have had a chance to look ahead at the playoffs for almost a week now, unfortunately they just found out who their opponents are.  With the Brewers locking up the Wild Card, it’ll be the Cubs who will have the unenviable task of taking on Dodger blue.  The goal is not just their first playoff series win since 1988, but their first World Series title since that year.

Manny Ramirez is getting a lot of play as an NL MVP candidate and that’s more a symptom of new clear cut winner then anything.  Ryan Howard had some great power numbers but his batting average will turn people off and while Chase Utley might be a better pick when you take position into account, he’s not at the top of anyone’s list either.  The problem is, the voters like picking someone from a playoff team and there’s no standout on those four teams.  Still, I don’t see Manny as a viable candidate with just one third of a season on the team.

One nice thing about living in the LA area is you can get out and take the boys to the sandlot all year long.  My biggest problem had been finding a good supply of good baseball equipment but that quest is over when I found Baseball Rampage.  With an awesome website, I was able to find a very nice baseball bag for my son and their baseball glove selection is almost mind boggling.
