Deja Vu all over again

Well it was a great season. A really, really fun season to be a Dodger Fan. I am disappointed that it had to end again virtually the exact same way it did last season, but it was a fun ride. Including post season play I would estimate that I attended about 35 Dodger games this year and am very lucky that I got to go to so many. I saw the O Dawg become the first Dodger to hit for the cycle in 30 plus years...I was at the Manny grandslam game on his own bobblehead night against the Reds. I witnessed the improbable comeback in game 2 of the NLDS against the Cardinals. I was there to see enjoy Brad Penny melt down in September, I saw Andre Eithier and Matt Kemp become stars. Matt and I enjoyed quite a bit this season. Going forward I feel like the Dodgers have an excellent chance to make it to the postseason for at least the next four straight years. They have an outstanding nucleus in Kemp, Eithier, Loney, Martin, Kershaw, Billingsley (if he can get his head straight) Broxton, etc.
The only thing I fear that can hurt the franchise potentially is the McCourt divorce. Oh well, we will wait and see....So ladies and gentleman, until March in Camelback Ranch, I wish everyone a very pleasant good evening..."Good Night Everybody!"

It was a great year indeed! It is always a great accomplishment to be one of the final four teams in baseball. Garrett, we will meet again in the ravine on opening day, 2010!
