If this doesn’t psyche you up for baseball…

Just arrived at Dodger Stadium, and was greeted with this stunning view as I walked into the ballpark from the very top level. It’s one of those rare Los Angeles days with barely a hint of smog. It’s not often the San Gabriel Mountains in the background are so vivid.

I know I’m biased, because I grew up in L.A. and spent my formative years hanging out at Dodger Stadium. But to me, there are not many sweeter sights.*

*I took this picture with my Blackberry. Just imagine how good it would have looked with a real camera.

Just to give me an excuse for this post, here is tonight’s Mariner lineup:

Ichiro RF

Chone Figgins 3B

Milton Bradley LF

Jack Cust DH

Justin Smoak 1B

Ryan Langerhans CF

Brendan Ryan SS

Jack Wilson 2B

Adam Moore C

Erik Bedard LHP
