One year ago, on July 10, 2011, the Outside the Dodgers blog was born with a post titled “A Place to Call Our Own“. Since then, there have been over 54,930 views, 168 posts and more than 16,660 comments. I can’t count the number of smiles and laughs, along with a few “ah sh*t” exclamations that were caused by reading this blog.
Thank you to all the people who have made being a Dodger fan a little more fun through your conversations, comments and posts.
Now that the first half of the season is done, we are grateful to be in first place, but realize that the second half will see the Dodgers playing a much tougher schedule. It will be a challenge to be sure. The return of Kemp and Ethier will help, but the starting pitching has to step it up a notch or two if the team is to make it to and through the playoffs. The next three weeks will see Colletti and company burning up their cell phone minutes to try to bring an impact bat, another starting pitcher, and perhaps another left handed reliever. I just hope they don’t give up any major prospects for a two month rental player.
Thanks again for your participation on OTD and LETS GO DODGERS!
