Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

The Dodgers could have used Pau Gasol

Pau Gasol threw the ceremonial first pitch in the match between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Yankees (he's warming up in the pic above). It was the first game of the three game series and second ever series played by the two teams outside the World Series. It was also a reunion week between the Yankees and their former manager Joe Torre and Don Mattingly who are now with the Dodgers. Alex Rodriguez clubbed his 593rd home run to help NY beat LA 2-1. CC Sabathia got the win and Mo Rivera successfully closed the game out. Two more games to go in this series. NY is atop MLB with a 46-27 record.
