Drop It!As anyone who sits near me during a game knows, whenever a Dodger hits a fly ball, I yell, “Drop it, drop it, drop it!” as the opposing team’s outfielder readies himself to catch the ball. I’ll admit, it doesn’t work 99% of the time. But once in a while, it does.

Thanks to Colorado left fielder (just converted from infielder) Charlie Culberson, the Dodgers held on to beat the Rockies, 7-4, in the second of three games in Denver behind another strong start by Ricky Nolasco, quickly becoming one of my favorite Dodgers.

Poor Culberson dropped a can-of-corn fly ball by Mark Ellis with the bases loaded in the ninth inning yesterday, allowing three runs to score, which proved to be crucial when Ronald Belisario gave up a run in the bottom of the ninth.

Let’s see the sweep today!
