Dodgers 2007

I stopped by Dodger Stadium for the exhibition game tonight.

Parking is now $15. It pays to get here early and park on the street. Parking is now Disney-style; they tell you where to park. Otherwise there are no noticeable improvements. The lot still needs new asphalt and painted lines. There are two large Dodger store tents in the lot now.

There are two new outfield scoreboards on the outfield walls that are full-color and replace the old ones.

I saw no improvements to the Reserve level. The bathrooms are the same. Food looks the same, although they've added corn dogs and caesar salads. I think prices are the same although I didn't check too carefully. There's a new large beer for $10.

The game itself was weak. The Dodgers looked like scrubs, with poor pitching, and weak defense. Brady Clarke hit into a triple play in his first at-bat as a Dodger.

Of course, it's only spring training. For three more days.

The bastards: $15 parking?

In a city where everyone travels by car? Where there is no mass transit to the field?

I guess someone had to pay for the team.

I'm blue. But not in the way the Dodgers wanted.
