I would never sign Kershaw. After this year, maybe next, I think he will be toast. He has hip problems too. If the Dodgers are smart, they let him go after 2014.

One of the Marathon officials, Pads? I had a buddy back in the day in Phoenix who used to run marathons. I kid you not, his idea of a great date was for the both of them to head on out on a 8-10 mile jog and then go to a park and gulp down bread, cheese and wine. If I had been one of those gals that date agenda would have been a total deal breaker.

Had a buddy who was a distance runner "back in the day", and when he was in training he would run 18 miles a day.

I just never got in to the whole "running" thing, even though I lived in Boulder, CO for about 10 years, and it's really big there.  But, I still like riding bikes. I rode all the time when going to school in Boulder, and still ride quite a bit although I just do it to get around, with any exercise from it benefit being a bonus.

Just want everyone to know that for the first time in a long time I missed watching a Barnaby Jones episode on Friday night.  I watched the game all the way through.  And I also went through supper (chicken legs in the deep fryer, yams, chocolate ice cream), and two big cigars (both 7x50) during the course of the game.

Today I am going to jump on the Harley-Davidson and go for a ride and be back in time for Game #2.  I'll be having supper again (maybe the same thing, that was good) and one or two big cigars also.  I'll probably miss going to the casino tonight after the game because i'll be too tired.  But Monday is a holiday so I can go Sunday night.  Anyway, later tonight Mannix will be on the TV.  I don't think I could go a whole weekend without seeing either Barnaby or Joe.

I noticed The Weather Channel shows some green stuff in the St. Louis area.  But as I type this it looks like its pretty much past and should be clear at game time.

Mannix was a private investigator show from 1967-1975.  Its my all time favorite TV show.  I've got all the dvds.  Brings back the memories, watching Mannix late on Saturday evenings when I get home.  Just ask Pugs, he knows all about Mannix.

It was also the last of the Desilu productions, created by the same guy who created Mission Impossible. The third Desilu production on the air in 1968, when the studio was sold by Lucille Ball to Paramount, was Star Trek.

The TBS announcers thought Gibby was talking to Trevor about working fast.

I'm kind of surprised he did not go with Robinson also, although Jay has hung in against lefties pretty well this post season, or at least it seems that way.

Kozma's defense has really been impressive, although I've noticed that since he first came up late last season. He's sort of our current day "Dal Maxvill", although I thought he would hit with a little power and he hasn't shown that.

MLBNetwork saying Hanley Ramirez a game-time decision after taking a ball off the ribs from Kelly. If no Hanley in the lineup for the Dodgers that would be a huge blow tonight.

---------------------------------------------

Maxvill per 162 games: .217/.293/.259, OPS+ 57. 9 doubles, 3 triples, 1 homer, 29 RBI, 1 SB, 61 K, 42 BB.
Kozma per 162 games: .232/.293/.315, OPS+ 70. 23 doubles, 3 triples, 3 homers, 44 RBI, 4 SB, 100K, 39 BB.

Maxvill may have been the worst hitter in MLB history to play 14 years in the majors. Kozma is a bad hitter, but not quite Maxvill bad. Then again, he's not quite Maxvill-good defnsively.

P.S. i know the 60’s and the Oughts are very different in terms of overall offense; that's why I included OPS+.
