The last time I mlbloged was sometime last year and gave an update on the 20th week of the 1962 New York Mets season replay. They finished the season with a 67-93 record that would have been good for 8th place, instead of losing 120 games and coming in dead last. The replay of the 1962 World Series resulted in the San Francisco Giants beating the New York Yankees, four games to two.
I am currently replaying the 1965 Los Angeles Dodgers season and have found out that the Dodgers have great pitching, lousy hitting and NO power. Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale have outstanding ERA’s but suffer from no run support. I have just completed the All Star game in Minneapolis where the National League clobbered the American League, 8-0.
Rather than give a game-by-game beakdown of the season, I have decided to change the Mlblog to add selected articles, baseball history and, of course, the season replays. I hope someone out there in cyber space will enjoy the Mlblog and share some of their thoughts. With all that being said, here is an interesting update:
On March 29th, the Boston Red Sox will play an exhibition game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Los Angeles Colesium, their first home, as part of the 50th Anniversary of the Dodgers coming to Los Angeles. Some of my friends and I have tickets for the game and I will provide you with a report after the game.
So, grab a chair, get some peanuts and popcorn, fill out your scorecard and enjoy the view from behind the backstop.
