“What I Think on Wednesday”
ON THE RADIO….That was fun-getting last minute invite to co-host an hour on my station Mighty 1090 with Scott Kaplan and Billy Ray Smith…felt like I was never away…still feel I should have never been let go..
TAKING HIGH ROAD ON TV…Tough week ahead..final week me and my teammates who work together on CW-6-XETV, which is closing down its entire news room operation…77-news side staffers on waivers…really had fun 3-years doing TV..who wants to hire a damn good weekend TV anchor crew?
STUNNED…Japan players would not leave the Dodgers Stadium dugout after the shocking (2-1) loss to Team USA in World Baseball Classic…really intense-tension filled game…How about San Diego connections helping win another…Adam Jones had 2-homers and game saving catch early in series..then game winning RBI ground ball in 8th last night…Luke Gregorson saves his 2nd game in a row out of the bullpen
PADRES PITCHING…Strong outing for Trevor Cahill for Padres, solidifies his spot in San Diego wafer-thin starting rotation…(5-plus) innings and (7) K’s in victory.
DODGERS…What an outing for Hyun Jin-Ryu…4-shutouting innings and 1-hit allowed..3rd straight solid outing for lefthander who had pitched in 1-game in two years due to shoulder woes.
ANGELS…So far-so good for Halos on injury front…That is Albert Pujols batting (.412) coming off foot surgery….Garrett Richards elbow issues seem resolved-clocked at 98mph….and Matt Shoemaker, coming off fractured skull-continues to pitch impressively…Maybe use of pitch counts will help them over the top.
AZTECS…It’s just an idea sheet, not a demand from the city, but San Diego State wants to control its own destiny…build a football stadium..either buy or lease land at Qualcomm sight…Bring in their own developer..and have the right to lease other acreage to build future dorms, housing and research buildings in a university master plan…up next, see if the city can mold the SDSU needs to what FS-Investors wants to do with their soccer stadium ideas…that’s what negotiations are all about.
CHARGERS…A strange sighting at Chargers Park…the team meeting with controversial RB-Joe Mixon-who was uninvited and did not go to the combine despite being a very high first round pick…all the aftermath of a a violent domestic abuse incident dating back to 2014-for which he was disciplined…has not been in trouble since-but the spectre of all things Ray Rice still look out there..because the video was out there of the incident..Don’t think the Chargers need a running back..should not spend top pick either on a QB…can you say left tackle..can you say safety?
LAKERS LOSE AND LOSE AND LOSE…Another blowout setback-this to the team across the hallway, the Clippers…The Lakers show no commitment to play team defense…giving up more than 130 points last night…that’s 41-losses in the last 51-games…hard to believe how bad the franchise has become.
RED HOT HOCKEY…The Gulls face San Jose tonight in battle of 1-vs-2 in Pacific Division..both clubs on pace to possibly win 45-games this year-very impressive….Barracudas have snipers..San Diego has defense and goaltending.
