Anyone want to venture a guess how far it is time wise from Long Beach to Anaheim and/or Dodger Stadium, assuming 7PM games. How about if there is a Thursday afternoon game at Dodger Stadium? Or a Wednesday afternoon game at Anaheim?

For a 7 pm game, you can get from Long Beach to Anaheim in 30-60 minutes depending upon traffic. Long Beach to Los Angeles would have a bit more traffic.
The Dodgers don't play a lot of midweek day games. The Mets are scheduled to play in L.A. on Thursday July 7 and they would then go to San Francisco, so they wouldn't need a day game getaway. The Angels might have a Wednesday day game since they are playing Detroit, who has to go to Kansas City afterwards.

It's more like 21 miles for both. You wouldn't take the 710 to the 91 to get to Anaheim Stadium as Google maps suggests, you'd take 7th St. out to where the 22 starts, and then take either the 22 into central Orange County, or the 605 north to the 91.

Indeed, you are less likely to hit traffic on the Anaheim trip, but you never know. With tickets in hand, I would want to leave for either venue by no later than 5:30 to make sure I got there without breaking a sweat.

Keep in mind that groups of two are more are eligible to use carpool lanes -- this can make a big difference in peak traffic times. They are building a big connector project at the intersection of the 405/605/22 Fwys, so stay tuned.
