Dave Roberts' Dodgers searching for urgency

Dave Roberts' Dodgers searching for urgency



2018-04-17T03:50:47+0000

World Series hang-over? Not so fast, says Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, but his team is searching for a sense of urgency. LA entered series vs. San Diego Padres in last in NL West.

The Dodgers walked into Petco Park in last place for the first time in three years. Last year, they were one win away from winning their first World Series since 1988 and only one team in the last 47 years has returned to the Fall Classic a year after losing in it.

I almost feel bad for the salty ex fans who have nothing better to do than troll chargers posts 😂😂😂 #BoltUp ☇☇💙💛💙

Ricky Hough get over it salty san diegan

La or sd it's still a chargers die hard thing

I missed it who signed this morning?

Albert Tapia if Phillip Rivers gets a offensive line protection like the patriots have and Big DTs that the patriots have Phillip Rivers would win many SBs

how can you people say these thing the chargers are sell outs . THey took our money and went to L.A. . Rivers sucks and they have there on the future ???. BY Mr rivers

Hater gonna hate on the chargers rivers is elite

Just go away and solve racial inequalities and police brutality before you die!

If we play our cards right, we can be a real post season threat... BOLT UP!☇☇☇

Albert Tapia football has 53 players on a team

Youre a great GM TT! Ty for coming to Bolts

Get us Vea or D-payne in the draft!!! Bolt up!!

Maybe that bill should have passed when San Diego had that chance.... but you guys didnt pass it so get over it

Rivers has had to deal with a young team. Basically telling them what to do. They need guys that already know their job. No offense to young players cuz they have some good ones,

Beef up the middle of that D line to stop the run

Blah blah blah blah... start winning more games and draft better players

No more injury prone drafts!!!

Trade up and get Edmunds or Smith!

Tre Boston is the one we have left to sign...

He was injured last season

Yeah please stop it about a Quarterback!!!

Ya baker said hds not giing waist his time 🤐

Trade up and get MINKAHHHH

Albert Tapia you don't know 🏈

Get some guys who can protect Rivers..

Children's Hospital Los Angeles

Last year, Gabby, 13, began to feel pain in her left knee. A month later, she was walking with a noticeable limp. After a visit to their local pediatrician, Gabby’s mom received a call to let them know to head to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles immediately. It was here at CHLA where they found out the result of her pain: aggressive, metastatic, osteosarcoma or also known as bone cancer.

Since her diagnosis, Gabby has spent many days in the hospital receiving chemotherapy or treatments to help the side effects of chemotherapy. There were many bad days with pain and nausea, but a therapy dog visit changed that around.

“The dog jumped up on her bed and in that second, all her pain and nausea was forgotten about,” says Kristi, Gabby’s mom. “All she was focused on was the dog.”

Gabby has always been a huge dog lover and to be able to receive this kind of comfort from the Amerman Family Foundation Dog Therapy Program makes a big impact while she’s in the hospital. For instance, Camper, a Golden Retriever, was present when Gabby’s nerve blocks needed to be removed; She barely flinched.

Gabby has met 38 out of 125 therapy dogs since she started her journey here at CHLA. That number grew to 81 when Gabby participated in our Dog Therapy Appreciation Day this past Wednesday. There were 43 dogs present with their owners to help celebrate three consecutive years of therapy dogs on duty every day at CHLA.

“On average, we have five dogs a day visiting and an average of 1,155 patients get a personalized one-on-one therapy dog encounter every month,” says Kate Buhrmaster, program manager of the Dog Therapy Program.

The work that our fur and human volunteers put in each day at CHLA is unmeasurable. Thank you to all of Dog Therapy for providing joy, comfort and distraction for families and patients like Gabby!

How wonderful that CHLA treats the whole child and not just their disease. I have seen many posts about therapy dogs. celebrity visits, and special parties for the children. CHLA seems to really understand that sick children need to be treated like children and not just like patients. What a wonderful hospital.

Going to get my two dogs trained through Pet Partners. I already started the volunteer process. I think this would be a great area to volunteer at CHLA. I have seen first hand through my daughter Sarah, the joy it brings when a dog comes and visits.

The therapy dogs at CHLA are priceless!! Truly brought sunshine to our son's treatment stays. He battled osteosarcoma as well. Prayers on their way for you Gabby!!!!

Blondie 💕
His handler said that he stopped at my daughter’s door. My daughter was missing her dog at the time. The visit with Simba made her day.

Blondie paid her a visit as well.

Our poodle Milo met Gabby last week at Dog Therapy Appreciation Day! So happy to be one of her 81!🐩🐩❤️

That's awesome. My son has 40 dog cards from his stay. He got out of there healthy and hopefully it's only check ups for life and no return of the tumor. God bless chla

🙏 for Gabby and all the children at CHLA! Therapy dogs are the best! ❤️

I am absolutely in tears. Thank you to these wonderful people and dogs and help in countless ways. Continued prayers for Gabby and her wonderful family.

They are also great at reminding parents to be parents. When Pierce was diagnosed with Leukemia, I forgot how to be a mom. I forgot how to play. The entire 4th floor child life staff reminded me everyday how to be the mom I wanted to be.

Omg Maggie & Jessica !! You guys help make 5 east the amazing unit it is! Always making such an impact in the lives of the patients and families (& nurses) Love you both lots!

Child life is so important and I can’t even explain how much we love these two lady’s ! It’s nice to have people beside myself and husband for Kaylin to feel like she can trust and talk with...and these ladies have helped not only her but us parents during difficult times !! ❤️

They saved my 3 year olds life when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor ♥️. They are truly the best.

This is a wonderful ad that makes me so sad that I’m not still practicing as a CCLS. Thank you for your efforts - as misunderstood and under-appreciated as they may be, I hope you never forget how much YOU matter to the families.

Child life AMANDA and NURSE. JOY are the best God bless them we love you

These people are GREAT ! ! ! No matter the problem they are on it..Our Grand Daughter Indomitable Iris -our Tiny Warrior's Battle with Biliary ,she is 2 years and 7 months old...is now coming up on ONE year post Liver Transplant from a living donor her Aunt Tiana. Back when I started donating Platelets, I am now at over 35 gallons I never knew it would some day come back to save our Grand Daughters life. Keep up all the great work you do. (iris says thanks also).

Jackie on the 6th floor is the most amazing person. She made my daughter's stay so much easier. I'm not sure what we would of done without her. From helping with IV, blood draws,meds to explaining what it was gonna be like when she had her 5 hour MRI and how it would to be to put to sleep. I owe her. She has the best heart.

CHLA wouldn’t be the same without its incredible, compassionate Child Life team. Thank you!

Child Life team members are superheroes! Every. Single. Hour. We Love them❤️
