April Showers Bring May Flowers

Showers of wins, I mean, and flowers that blossom into a commanding lead. As of this writing, the boys in blue have a 23-11 record. And that’s with Matt Kemp in a slump. I’ve been a little slow in posting my latest paintings, but I’m gonna drop a half-dozen on you right now, just like the team did yesterday on the Rockies in the bottom of the 5th.

Dodgers @ Cubs, May 4-6, 2012

We Should Steamroll This

(Dodgers @ Cubs, May 4-6, 2012)

We should steamroll this
Be careful of the hubris!
The blue bull pen blows

Oh no! Reality creeps in! ______________________________________________________________

Dodgers @ Rockies, April 30-May 2, 2012

New Bosses in Town!

(Dodgers @ Rockies, April 30-May2, 2012)

New bosses in town!
Magic makes Frank disappear
It’s a blue hat trick!

Do we get fooled again? ______________________________________________________________

Nationals @ Dodgers, April 27-29, 2012

Gotta Keep Playin’

(Nationals @ Dodgers, April 27-29, 2012)

Gotta keep playin’
‘Til the umpire stops ya
Make that triple play!

This game is life itself. ______________________________________________________________

Braves @ Dodgers, April 23-25, 2012

Snatch Those Tomahawks

(Braves @ Dodgers, April 23-25, 2012)

Snatch those tomahawks
Give ’em a taste of their chops
See how they are brave!

“It is said that baseball is only a game. Yes, and the Grand Canyon is only a hole in Arizona.”
George F. Will, A Baseball Game Is Not an Iowa Caucus ______________________________________________________________

Dodgers @ Astros, April 20-22, 2012

We Roll on Their Turf

(Dodgers @ Astros, April 20-22, 2012)

We roll on their turf
Silence those Colt 45’s
Blast off astronauts

“Baseball is a mirror in which we can see the whole of America.”
Ken Burns, Baseball ______________________________________________________________

Dodgers @ Brewers, April 17-19, 2012

In Old Milwaukee

(Dodgers @ Brewers, April 17-19, 2012)

In old Milwaukee
We got a song for their umps
It’s called “3 Blind Mice!”

“Baseball is almost the only orderly thing in a very unorderly world.”
Bill Veeck, Sports Illustrated ______________________________________________________________

I’m still a couple of series behind, but I’ll be caught up soon. Come back in a few days, and I’ll be back with more.
