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

I've been planning on making this entry for a few days now, but worried all the while that once I do, you will all abandon me.

But in the spirit of "the more, the merrier" ...

Sometimes I try to be funny or clever on this site. While this is going on, there are other sites that actually are funny and clever.

1) The Humbug Journal - Blog of the Score Bard (http://www.humbug.com). All I can say is, I wish I had thought of it first, and that if I had thought of it first, could do it half as well.

(And by the way, if you like the Score Bard, then you absolutely must purchase O Holy Cow!: The Selected Verse of Phil Rizzuto.)

2) The Spitter (http://www.spitter.com/index.htm). What won me over was their new top story, "Griffey Sealed in Plastic Bubble."

3) DodgerBlues.com (http://www.dodgerblues.com). Though I consider myself plenty cynical, every once in a while I think they're too cynical over there. But I quibble - and more often, I'm jealous of what they do. Very often, they are dead on, not to mention dead-on hilarious, such as the picture they put up after Tuesday's loss to the Padres - priceless. (It's still up there as I write this, along with their latest poll in which you can vote for the crappiest Chad ever to play for the Dodgers: Kreuter, Fonville, Curtis or Hermansen. You also shouldn't miss "The Crappy Brother.")

Okay, hope you enjoy these sites. And you all come back now, y'hear?
