    I'm not so sure I like this.

    Weaver was horrible last time he was here. The guy would pitch a decent game, then one inning he'd completely fall apart.

    Not to mention his ERA was always around 5

    Whenever I saw Weaver take the mound, I always thought they should have let the relievers start the game and bring Weaver in after the 2nd because he sucked so bad in the first two innings of any ballgame.

    I was out there last weekend and saw some games at both the Dodgers and Angels stadiums. To tell you the truth I was a little disappointed in the new Dodger diggs. Although the Dodger's facility is state of the art, something's definitely missing... like any shades of Dodger blue, and more importantly Dodger dogs. The Angels on the otherhand have their logos everywhere and the big red helmet in front. The only Dodger logo at their place is on the video scoreboard, and that is against a brown background. The whole place is decorated in shades of brown. Go to the concession stands and they serve Chicago dogs! Ironically, the Angels serve Farmer John. Up in the booth Vinny leaned out and waved to the fans. Problem is no one could hear him. They don't broadcast the games, either in the park or on a local station. The Angels do.

    That's the problem with sharing a place I guess. You can't personalize it. Maybe paying Manny necessitated economizing and taking a roommate like the White Sox. Too bad.
    I just got back from a weekend there last night. Definitely more of the arizona-ish brown feel. Liked the facility though. It was fun to get out early, see the guys walk out and warm up on all the practice fields. 1:00 games saturday and sunday. By about 10:30-11 there were so many people it was hard to get autographs or speak to players on their way back in. May go a little earlier next year when it might be a little less crowded.
    Fun to walk around though. Thought the actual stadium was very nice. Quite small, so you're definitely in on the action. The lawn in the outfield reminded me a little of a smaller petco park.
    Sat behind home plate, and other than it being very hot, had a blast.

    Lasorda and Cey were out saturday amongst the people before the game. It is so easy to just sit and listen to those guys talk, the "good ol' days" or other.

    Broxton is massive in person.

    While there isn't really a whole lot to Glendale besides the stadium(s), we spent both nights there in the outdoor center next to jobing.com arena and the football stadium. Like an LA Live but more open and nicer.
    Yard House was fun as always. Hit up Karl Strauss and Margaritaville for fun as well.
    Highlight though had to be the Wine and Chocolate Bar. While a little pricey, the Wine Flights and Chocolate fondue samples were outstanding!

    It's a minor-league deal with major-league terms. What that means, in essence, is that the Dodgers found a way to send him down to Albuquerque for a few days so he can make up for missing almost all of spring training before they call him up.
