We attended Maggie and Brandon Jenkins’ wedding in Omaha on Saturday. A nice ceremony and reception, and I did a little whiskey flasking. 🙂 Maggie worked with me for a few years, and Jill has known Brandon for a long time.
Stayed at Jill’s parents’ house Saturday night, then came back to Des Moines on Sunday morning.

Jill will be staying at home for the rest of her pregnancy because of the swelling in her legs and feet. Her blood pressure is fine and all the other tests are looking good, but she is just having a heck of a time walking and bending her legs.
She’s sad about having to stay home, but it’s the best thing for her and the baby.
It’s not bed rest, but rather modified bed rest. She can get up and do things, but the doctor told her to take it easy.
Please say a prayer or two for Jill and the baby whenever you have a second.

Manny Ramirez is on a tear again, with eight hits in Friday and Saturday’s games. We’re up 8-0 over Arizona in the sixth inning tonight (Sunday), so hopefully we’ll be able to take 2 of 3 from the D’backs. That would put us 2.5 games behind in the NL West.

Every fan knows that his or her team has opponents that dominate them. Usually they’re non-superstars. They are called Cub killers, Dodger killers, Yankee killers, etc. Here is my list of Dodger killers…
1. Brad Hawpe, Rockies — incredible career numbers vs. the Bums. Check them out on baseball-reference.com
2. Dave Roberts, Giants — haunts his former team in key situations.
3. Randy Winn, Giants — a very tough out for us. Thank goodness he doesn’t hit for power.
4. Stephen Drew, D’backs — seems like he gets a hit every time he comes to the plate vs. L.A.
5. Albert Pujols, Cardinals — his bat is a lethal weapon against most teams, but he REALLY loves playing against my guys. If the Dodgers played in the Central, Pujols would make a run at .400.
I want to hear from you. Which players seem to explode offensively every time they play against your team?
