13 is the lucky....no wait....14.....wait.....
Dodgers break the major league record for most consecutive wins to start a season. Tomorrow night they go for the Dodger record for the longest winning streak, period. This is now becoming bizarre, almost surreal. This focus on the teams we are beating fails to take into account that no other team has ever done this, so who cares how good the teams we are beating are. I have gone over every angle on that one.
Perhaps the most ominous aspect of this winning streak, or hot streak, is that of all the teams we have passed on the way to this record, history does not hold our ultimate end in good stead. None of the teams won the world series and virtually all of them fell apart in second half. It is way, way too early to see this as a portent of the entire year. Still, the fact that we have begun to seriously separate ourselves from our division is very positive. All of this without Kuroda no less.
Health is the key. Health and good fortune. If Manny stays healthy, all else will take care of itself. It makes me wonder why the Dodger brass waited so fucking long to sign his ass. Frankly, they should wrap him up for three more years right now and get this distraction over with, because at the All Star break its gonna come up again and again.
Heading over to the park with Jamie Bozian Thursday night to get me my TRANZIZTUH RADIO!
14 is the luckiest number.
