You know I am always thinking way head… In business you have to. Same thing in baseball.
First, there is this: I was never a Joc Pederson fan until he won me over this Spring and first half of the season, but since the All-Star game “He Is What I Thought He Was!” I am not sure he can recover. In 1980 a 24 year-old outfielder was the Rookie of the Year in the AL.[...]
I think we all have felt that Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi were going to come into town and do the voodoo that they do and the Dodgers would win the Championship… THIS SEASON!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – “FAZ is trying to build a dynasty!” But, they still want to win THIS year… and that is still possible. As FAZ has[...]
…easily! But it can be fixed.
To understand what is wrong we have to go back to several things that still impact the Dodgers, even though they were done years ago:
The Signing of Andre Ethier;
Not Trading Yasiel Puig after his Rookie Season;
As a result of those actions, the Dodgers have $68 million a year tied up in four [...]
We all micro-analyze each game and want to fire everyone on any given day. That the Dodgers have been in a funk of late would be an understatement… sort of like saying the Titanic hit an ice cube! Now, we all know the story about the biggest, baddest, most expensive ship that money could buy… and I’ll stop right there and let you draw your own analogies.
All I am g[...]
The good news is that the Dodgers bullpen was unhittable last night.
The bad news is that the Dodger hitters were unhittable.
The former is the exception while the later seems to be the rule.
“But, it’s early.”
“Nice to see Chase Utley energize the team.”
… and now we hear that Fiers may have been a dirty r[...]
You Gotta’ Believe!
Tonight while you are watching the Dodger game, I’ll be watching Friday Night Lights. First game of the season!
#6 Stephen Timmons Junior Linebacker and H-Back 6’1″ 220 p[...]
I am again going to remind you of a few things… because evidently you forget sometimes! Some of you will be mad at me because The Truth Hurts (no not him). Here we goooooo…..
To those of you who say the Dodgers didn’t try to do anything about the bullpen or starting pitching at the trade deadline, I have this to say: “You are freaking delusional[...]
Desperate times call for desperate measures – that’s what it boils down to. Howie Kendrick is out for at least another two weeks and the Dodgers are in dire need of some professional hitting. Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins will be re-united and maybe re-energized for another World Championship. He’s something else that is very interesting: Could the Dodgers be planning t[...]
I sure am glad that some highly intelligent blogger went to great extremes to provide statistics that would show Pedro Baez is having a breakout year, because he looked like crap last nights, but the stats say otherwise. Man, am I glad he straighten[...]
I am waiting to hear from Deep Throat on this one!
It was announced yesterday that the Dodgers have hired Ron Roenicke as 3B Coach for the rest of the season, relieving Al Bundy of that job and moving John Valentin out of the dugout. Maybe this does three things:
Gets rid of a 3B Coach is isn’t so good at times;
Gets rid of one hitting coac[...]
