Facts and Feelings

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

I appreciate that Ross Newhan apologized today in the Times for his cheapest shot at Odalis Perez last week...

Jolbert Cabrera got his 30th double last night, third on the Dodgers, in his 331st at-bat. He has had 16 doubles since his last home run, on July 12 at Colorado. Cabrera's last homer at normal altitude came May 30...

Cabrera and Alex Cora have more doubles than walks. On a smaller scale, so do Larry Barnes, Wilkin Ruan and Koyie Hill...

Dave Roberts almost has fewer doubles (six) than triples (five)...

I found it interesting that on the same day that Bill Plaschke wrote in the Times that the Dodgers have over-prioritized team chemistry (vis-a-vis Gary Sheffield), USA Today Sports Weekly came to my house and ranked the Dodger team chemistry last among the final 13 playoff contenders. The (insufficient) explanation: "The Dodgers have issues." ...

I am so sad that Rickey's career might end with surgery.
