Keeping our heads up

Kempblog.jpgWhen I left the stadium, some of my friends, we talked a little bit about the game, not too much. It’s good to talk about it. A little surprised, a little shocked. Grabbed something to eat at some diner near the hotel. It took a little while to fall asleep. I was in shock more than anything. It was like, I couldn’t believe it, did that really happen? We’ve been on the other side before, so we know how it feels to lose and we know how it feels to win.

Joe had a meeting before we went out to the field and just told us to take it one game at a time. You got to win one to win two, got to win two to win three. It’s a one-game series for us, that’s how we have to think. We get back home, I like our chances, I like the way we play there.

Our mood is good, man. I’m going to check out a haunted house tonight, supposed to be pretty scary. Can’t sit in the room all night and just think about last night’s game. Sleep in a little bit tomorrow, get some food, chill out. Same routine, nothing’s going to change.  Everybody has faith in us. My friends tell me to keep your head up. This is the right team to come back from 3 to 1. I’m good. I’d be way more looser if it was 2-2 going into tomorrow, because we hit Cole pretty good the first time we played him. But this is just something we have to deal with and fight through it.



    hahaha…love how your going to go check out a haunted house, make sure you take Loney or he’ll be looking all lonely like “big boi” alwasy says!!….love it….but, you do have a point keep your head up & hold it up high it’s the only thing you boys can do!…you can’t do everything & expect to do everything on your own, you gotta give it all you have & that’s it!….you guys are a team if you fall you fall together & you pick yourselves up together, thats the way it is, it’s a sport hard to say but theres gotta be a winner & a looser…& you boys are not loosers you guys are winners you guys reached the top & reached it together now it’s time to show everyone what you & the boys in blue are made of…give them Phillies a piece of what L.A. gots…..& if you boys fall back down tomorrow night, just keep in mind that you guys gave it all you had. You boys will do good tomorrow night I know you will, i have faith & as long as all of us angalenos have faith, you boys will accomplish your win tomorrow night. Just don’t beat yourself up for last nights game or the game before…have a nice night get some rest dont party to hard out there in phillie, & kick some *** tomorrow…

    peace love & success


    I don’t know if you’ll read this, but thank you for writing this. Very painful game for us fans back In Los Angeles and I can only imagine how the Big Man felt afterwards. Glad to here everyone is doing well and ready to fight. Its a long mountain to climb, but I really have confidence that this team could overcome this and go all the way. You guys have fought through adversity all year and come out stronger, I know this team can do it. Just keep fighting, get this next game and come home! Nothing is worth having without fighting for it.

    And if it wasn’t meant to be, thanks for the awesome season. So many highs and lows, and just great baseball all around. Really fun to watch this grow over the years and I only see big things from this group in the future.

    Not to be a drag, but my phils are going all the way. Your Dodgers are a very good team; don’t get me wrong, the phillies are better. I hope its a good game tommorow!

    heartbreaking for the Dodger-nation but we keep our heads held high. Bring

    Wouldn’t it be a fairy tale if the Dodgers actually came back from this loss, won three in a row, then won the World Series. That would be the greatest sport’s story every told in the history of the Dodgers, both in Brooklyn and Los Angeles.

    Dreams do come true.

    Matt, my heart goes out to the whole team, especially Brox. He has been money all season. Do you think he cooled down too much between innings? He actually pitched Rollins well, tip of the hat to Roll’s for turning on a good pitch. One question; any chance Furcal could have thrown out Rollins on the relay before Ruiz crosses the plate? It looked like Rollins made the turn at 2cd then watched Ruiz score. Everyone was keying in on Ruiz but if we nail Rollins, it is a tie game and we have new life. Shorter throw for Furcal as well. Just a thought in case the situation ever arises again. Good luck tomorrow.

    Hi Matt. I was driving to work right now in my Dodger Blue truck with “BIG BLUE WRECKING CREW” written on the front and was stopped at a residential four-way stop. This elderly couple was crossing the street and I noticed that the man was trying to get my attention. I looked at him and he pointed to my car, gave the thumbs up and raised his hands in victory. I got it!!! He was telling me that he believes we’re going to win tonight. I gave him the thumbs up in agreement, we smiled at each other and I drove to work. we are all over L.A. baby. We’re all pulling for you and helping each other through these stressful days. It’s an unbelievable feeling!!!! Bring the series back home so you can see!!!! WE ARE ALL HERE WAITING FOR OUR DODGERS!!!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!! GO BIG BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If there’s anyone who has the heart to do this, you and your boys can. You’re an inspiration to me, which I am sure you are to many people everywhere. Watching you grow as a baseball player has been such a great thing to witness, and the tremendous amount of growth you’ve shown this season is amazing. I have the utmost faith that you will play with your heart tonight, because when the odds are against you, sometimes that’s all you can do. Best of luck to you and the boys, I will be watching every single second!

    Matt – I know this isn’t how you and the boys hoped this season would end, but your fans couldn’t be more proud of all that you accomplished this season. You and Dre’ really showed the entire league what you two, the Dynamic Duo, is capable of, and it has been an absolute pleasure watching the two of you, and the rest of the Dodgers, play this season. Like Dodger4life said, have a wonderful off-season, enjoy your family and friends, and we look forward to seeing you back on the field in the spring……….only 164 days until Opening Day 2010. Take Care and God Bless!!
