The Cardboard Hunt for Dodgers: A Box of Topps Heritage on Youtube

I’m home this afternoon, but I can’t even watch the Dodgers game, because it’s not on. So let’s open a box of baseball cards and see if we can pull any Dodgers, Dodgers autographs, the Reggie Jackson auto that I’m chasing, or anything else cool.

Plus, we review a beer from Las Vegas – Monsoon IPA from Kenaya Creek Brewery. Enjoy!

I was born in the shadow of Dodger Stadium and immediately drenched in Dodger Blue. Chavez Ravine is my baseball cathedral, Vin Scully was the golden voice of summer all my life, and Tommy Lasorda remains the greatest Dodgers manager ever. My favorite things are coffee, beer, and the Dodgers beating the Giants. I also blog about my baseball card hobby at All Trade Bait, All the Time.

  1. I’ve actually had Monsoon before and can’t say I love it. Don’t ha t it either.

    ThinkBlueLA’s Cervenka has a nice article up on Venditte. Our own guitar hero Mr. Norris has been touting him for weeks and looks like others will jump on the V-Train soon!

    Kershaw strikes out 7 in another scoreless outing, and our other starters look ready too, with two more weeks to go in ST. Maybe we should have ping pong tournaments during the post season – seems to help our starters immensely.

  2. I notice that these video blogs provoke a lot of discussion in here. Okay, I’m lying.

    I think we are all still hung over from the disappointment of the WS, I know it has been discussed prior but I just have to say it once again, that series was completely thrown away by numerous players and management. Just didn’t have to happen, series should have been won in 5 games.

    1. I agree about the disappointment. For me it was the egg laid in Game 7. At home, sold out stadium and you score 1? Nobody with more than 1 hit, only 1 extra base hit, 1 for 13 WRISP? Pathetic. We remember Darvish, we forget an offense that just didn’t show up in THE biggest game of the year.

    2. Blue

      I totally agree with you!

      This series should have been won long before the seventh game!

      Of course, I blame Darvish, but I blame our highest paid pitcher in our rotation and the highest paid pitcher in our bullpen more, because I expected more from them.

      And this was the first time Kenley really blew a game, so I don’t blame him, as much, I blame the person who put McCarthy on the World Series roster!

      How does a malinger, get on the World Series roster?

      How can we blame a young player that was hurt, and a rookie player, more then these other veteran pitchers, because this wasn’t their first rodeo by no means!

      If our veteran pitchers step up, this World Series would have been won before the seventh game!

        Still hating on Kersh huh? Maybe you will get your wish if he opts out after this year. Yes, he will be gone.

        1. There has to be an algorithm on whether Kershaw stays.

          If we win it all, 60/40 he opts out. Nothing left to do here.

          If we come up short again, 60/40. 6 years in the playoffs and no championships? Obviously not going to get it done here. Time to move on before it’s too late.

          Overall odds? Coin flip. Two 60/40 odds cancel each other out. It’s called the Kershbouché method. If the sequence of the length is of insufficient centenation, the odds of continuing at commensurate function is a result of the guess times the square root of surety. The simple formula is 60/40 X 40/60 divided by the square root of LA can kiss my ass – adios mother fu***rs.

          Looks like this to Zaidi:

  3. Placing blame at this point in time after the world series is pointless. We all know who failed and who did a good job. Kershaw had one bad game. The bullpen did not hold the lead when the team regained it. Jansen blew game 2 all on his lonesome. Roberts made some very questionable pitching moves. But the fact remains that the first 4 hitters in the lineup, the meat and potatoes of this team, stopped hitting. Bellinger’s 17 strikeouts, a lot of them with men in scoring position, killed the team in some clutch spots. Taylor, Seager and Turner all had very forgettable World Series Stats, and the Astros top players hit when it counted the most. They were out pitched, out played and out managed…..end of story……move on to this year.

    1. And still we went to a 7th game. I’ve moved on. But I’m skeptical this 2018 is better. Meanwhile every contender has gotten better.

      1. YF
        I think you have hit on a real potential problem. The division has gotten better. 104 Wins is a pipe dream. Being short of starting pitching and knowing the postional players will not perform up to last years levels makes me a bit skeptical. Couple all that with a better division and what do you get?

      2. Yueh it should have never gotten that far. Jansen blowing game 2 was a huge blow. They go into Houston up 2-0 instead of 1-1, it would have been a huge difference.
