Well how about that.  A solid pitching performance AND offensive production? What planet are we on?  SVS really came up big with not one, but TWO dingers.  I nearly fell out of my chair when he hit the second one mostly because it came WITH RUNNERS ON BASE! Such a rare treat with this team.  In other news, Matt Kemp has started to hit and is drawing walks.  Haters, please recognize that you suck and are wrong.  Also go away with your Kemp hate.  Justin Turner continues to be productive now that he has regular playing time. I was a fan of his signing in the off season and am even more so now that he has helped alleviate the loss of Uribe.  And the biggest news of all, the Dodgers won on a day the giants lost.  Woohoo!  Move to 8.5 games back. Still a huge hill to climb, but baby steps people. Don’t give up yet.

Originally I had an idea for a comic with SVS breaking into a dark room saying “Come with me if you want to win.” but I remembered that it was Haren pitching and it needed to be the Peanuts theme.  Ah well. This still made me laugh.  Good ole Danny Haren.

Good ole Danny Haren, never the hero.
