I would advise everyone not to pay much attention to what is happening right now with Dodger hitters and pitchers because it just doesn’t mean a lot. James McDonald, Randy Wolf, Hiroki Kuroda, Eric Milton, et al have gotten roughed up recently. It means very little. The last two weeks of spring training will tell the tale. Players are just getting into shape or aching from trying, and these at bats or pitches don’t tell the tale. Give it time and let it play out. They sent six (6) down today (Tony Abreu, Lucas May, Victor Garate, Brent Leach, Jesus Castillo and Travis Schlichting) and more will follow soon. Then, we will see what everyone has the last 8-10 days of Spring Training. Right now, we have 49 on the Major League Roster and when we get down to below 40 things will get serious, and interesting. I would be shocked if we make any trades!
I have to go to Chicago for a convention tomorrow and will not be back until Friday sometime. My son’s 4th Grade Basketball Team won their first tournament game tonight and we play the final chmapionship at 8AM on Saturday, so it’s possible I won’t post until after that. (I feel like Phil Jackson – people think you are a great coach when you have Kobie Bryant or Michael Jordan, and I have the league MVP on my team). I’ll check in from time-to-time, but my wife and I are taking a 3-day semi-vacation to Chi-Town.
The Dodgers set an ALL-TIME CACTUS LEAGUE ATTENDENCE RECORD TODAY WITH OVER 13,000 in attendence. Now, do you know why they are not in Vero anymore? Jamie McCourt replaced Frank McCourt as CEO of the Dodgers. What does that mean? I haven’t a clue. Well I have clues, but I’m not sure!
Great read by Tony Jackson about the “Dodger Clubhouse.” I think this attitude bodes well for the Dodgers.
