Ain't got the blues

The Dodgers did it again last night, coming from behind to beat the Padres 3-1 at Petco Park. They seem to keep finding someone to keep them in the ballgame long enough to hand things over to the bullpen. In the absence of ├╝bercloser Eric Gagne, Yhency Brazoban has been impressive as the Dodgers' closer - in 7 1/3 innings he's given up just 3 earned runs and has struck out 8.

Just one random thought on the game - I've nothing against honouring US military personnel, if that's what clubs want to do, but the idea can get taken a little too far:
