Hanley Ramirez barely beats tag by Buster Posey in 4-3 win for the Blue Crew.

What a sweep of the Giants this past weekend, huh? This Dodger team is certainly good when it wants to be. Why doesn’t it want to be all the time?

That’s just one of the questions I’ve been pondering during a hiatus from Piewalla’s Dodger Blues. (Been busy, stuff happens.) One of the other questions I have is, when did Matt Kemp turn into a whiny little bitch? Also, what took the City Council of Los Angeles so long to notice there was a problem with Dodger broadcasts? Oh, and this classic, when will Guggenheim Partners really deliver on their promise to enhance the “fan experience,” as $tan Ka$ten (a.k.a. “The Invisible Man”) used to put it before he bowed out of public life? A few bobblehead statues and extra bars around the park isn’t going to cut it.

So, more than half the season is gone, the Dodgers have the two best pitchers in all of baseball at the top of their game, they’re increasing their lead over the faltering Giants (and there really isn’t another rival in the division). What once seemed impossible is seemingly about to happen, as Matt Kemp starts packing his bags for Boston and any fans who are paying attention don’t really care. Yet, no one is excited about it, no one is talking about it, no one really cares, because we can’t see it on TV.
