I am travelling in India right now, so have not been reading game threads or watching games. But, from a distance, it sure looks like something changed in the team after Rowand went down:
Before : 7-2 W-L, 5.7 RPG, 2.6 RAPG
After : 1-5 W-L, 3.7 RPG, 3.5 RAPG
1. F the Dodgers
2. Those of you watching the games - does the team look different? Have balls been falling into the outfield gaps on Torres and Vroom! that Rowand might have gotten to? Is the rhythm of the offense disrupted? Or is it just coincidence that one of the constants on the team the past three years was taken out in an ugly way, and the team got cold?
(Hank reports it differently at sfgate : "Huff said he believes Sunday's game-winning homer by Manny Ramirez sucked a lot of wind from the Giants.")
Wait, did I say "two things"? I meant "three things":
3. F the Dodgers
