Impact of banners flies south
ESPN's Dan Shulman, Orel Hershiser and Bobby Valentine recap the Dodgers' win over the Giants. Note in the video that Matt Kemp is already standing on third base in the sixth inning when Buster Posey's throw is just coming into the picture.
A final thought about airplanes flying banners. When I see them high above the Pacific Ocean at the beach, advertising this or that, they pretty much have no impact on me. It's hard for me to believe it was any different with the banners (as pictured on Vin Scully Is My Homeboy) flew over Dodger Stadium on Thursday.
Dave Cameron of Fangraphs is pretty much in awe of Clayton Kershaw at this point. Colleague Dave Allen has more on Kershaw's hard slider.
