DodgersNot to worry: The Dodgers lost a game. Big deal! That’s only, like, No. 8 in the past 40 or so games. No biggie.

To worry: Matt Kemp is still hurt, and Hanley Ramirez is day-to-day.

Not to worry: Clayton Kershaw is fucking awesome.

To worry: Brandon League decidedly isn’t.

Not to worry: Five games out front of Arizona, and rumored to be the odds-on favorite to win the World Series.

To worry: I heard that from Charlie Steiner.

They have some of those 10-game miniplans in the Top Deck now. So I might be coming to the stadium soon. We’ll see. I’d hate to miss out on the post-season, if there is one.

Dodger outfielder Yasiel Puig takes a breather at third base during a game in Chicago.

Sorry for the delay, everybody. I had important business to take care of, and my blog went silent for a few spectacular days. I wasn’t just lounging around on third base, like some Cuban phenoms we know. I was legit busy. (Although I did manage to catch a few innings over the weekend.)

Well, I got my wish! We swept those stinkin’ Cubbies, a four-game brooming! That makes me so happy, because, as you know, I HATE CHICAGO! Here are the box scores for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Next, the Cardinals, but they’re not going to go down so easily, I fear. We squeaked by in the first game yesterday, 3-2, thanks to the best hitting pitcher in baseball, Zack Greinke. And we have Clayton Kershaw (NL pitcher of the month) on the mound tonight. But the Cards are a tough-playing team. They always have been.

Oh yeah, except for that one time — remember? — when we swept them in the playoffs!

Everything about Chicago sucks.

Everything about Chicago sucks.

I know, I know. There are those that love the Windy City, those that think it is the best burg in the world. “My kind of town,” blah, blah, blah.

I am not one of those people.

I hate Chicago. I hate the word Chicago. I hate almost everything that has ever come out of Chicago, starting with the Tribune Corporation. Their fucked up Chicago ways screwed over one of the best newspapers in the country, and one of the best places to work.

I blame all of Chicago for that.

I know it’s irrational and perhaps a little closed-minded to write off an entire city for the misdeeds and avarice of one company, but few have ever accused me of being rational and open-minded.

Anyway, my hatred for Chicago makes me want the Dodgers to bulldoze over that cesspool of a city’s little darlings, the Cubs.

It’s true that I have a weakness for the underdog in most cases. And the Cubs could certainly be seen as baseball’s biggest underdogs. But I want us to crush them. I want them to cry after we sweep all four games. I want every Cubs fan to wish they had never even heard of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

That being said, I’m very happy our guys pulled out a come-from-behind win yesterday, 6-4, over the Cubbies. Keep it up!
