Danny Devito, the actor who was brilliant in Throw Mama From the Train and LA Confidential and produced Erin Brockovich, went to the Dodgers game Monday night and starting doing the White Man’s Overbite while clutching his cell phone after Nick Punto homered in the 7th inning.
LA went on to defeat the lowly Mets, 4-2, and remain the hottest club in the history of baseball, or something like that.
Six wins in a row.
Thirty-eight wins in their last 46 games. It’s the best 46-game run in MLB since Oakland pulled off 38-8 in 2001. How much better will LA get when Hanley Ramirez is healthy?
After the game, DeVito came onto the field wearing Nick Punto’s jersey. If Vin Scully chimed in on DeVito, we’ll try to find video of it.
