Dodger Diehards Decide Dodgers Destiny?

That's right if the Dodgers keep winning they can't lose.  Hey I swear I didn't steal that from Yogi--but it sure wouldn't surprise me if he'd said it.

Yep.  I have it all figured out.  It appears we're in control of our own fate.  That being said our destiny is not set in stone.  That's' right I said it of all people- Mr. Upbeat.

So how about we hold off on popping those corks from the champagne? 

I guess it makes sense that if most people were quick to write off the Dodgers they'd be just as quick or apparently even quicker to call the West Won.  Saying "the race is over" just isn't the case. Even if there's a lot of Diamondback fans giving up that sure doesn't mean the Diamondbacks have.  I think a sweep over the Giants who have been battling like they were playing for rings as one Giant Fan put it (seriously it was said) pretty much says it all.

Now I didn't say I didn't like our chances. In fact, I'm downright giddy with almost certainty. All I'm saying is how 'bout we hold off on the threads of "who's next" until we've actually sealed the deal?

Think Blue!

Dodgers Devoted Diehards Demoralized

O.K. Who doesn't enjoy a good alliteration in a title?

Well I can't say enough about the heart breakers against the Phillies, Giants, & now even the Nationals.  Although disheartened by these losses, it's the continuous posts of doom that have taken their toll

I'm amazed at how quickly things have turned with our own fans.  It's only been about two weeks since our own sweep of the Phillies.  Do you remember our posts after that?  I certainly do.  Most of us were talking about how sweet the lineup was, Kuroda on fire, Kershaw impressing and Broxton being ready to be our next star closer.  No worries, tied for first & soon to be alone at the top. Now most of the posts are of condemnation, who should get fired & what we need for 2009.

You know I hadn't been familiar with the term front-runners until recently but maybe we're guilty of just that very term?

So we've had some disastrous embarrassments of late.  Is it enough reason to capitulate on the rest of the season?  I don't think so.  I've been a fan for over 30 years now and I remember times being down 3 games with only 3 to play and I was still cheering for the miracle.  This is a shame what I'm seeing.  We're 3 games back with about 28 games left.  That's hardly a time to call it a day and start the season ending sulk.

There's a phrase that comes to mind.  Something about "enjoy the journey not just the destination" .  Sometimes you get a few bumps and bruises along the way or for us a few gun shots and stab wounds, still that just makes it all the more sweeter when you reach your goal.

Now I'm not saying we're going to win the World Series let alone our division.  A matter of fact at this point I'm worried about getting passed up by the Rockies.  At least let the games play out and then see where we stand.  I would never give up on the season until it's mathematically impossible to win and you know what either should you.
