    Was said earlier: “There’s nothing on the farm, waiting to harvest, to fill those rotation voids.”

    Interesting. We have some names from AAA and AA. We have seen some of them up for a bit last season.

    They (minor league pitchers) will get big chances in Spring Training, but maybe, just maybe, there is not much on the farm.

    But the key here is, instruction, growth, and zap-o — a real major leaguer develops. We can only hope.

    I wish our team was still great like it was back when the ownership was strong.
    Back before the Franks and before the Beans came along.
    Before the Fox Network and yesterday when a fan could still afford a ticket and still would.
    Is the best of the Dodger teams behind us now and are the good times really over for good?

    Are they rollin’ downhill like a snowball headed for hell?
    With no kind of chance for the Pennant or even the League bell?
    I wish a Russell or a Cey contract would still last ten years like they should.
    Is the best of the Dodger teams behind us now and are the good times really over for good?

    I wish the rotation was a herd of horses and our Drysdale was still a bad ass.
    It was back before McCheap lied to MLB about his financial status.
    Before Steroids when a player was still real, and still could.
    Is the best of the Dodger teams behind us now and are the good times really over for good?

    Stop the owners from rollin’ downhill like a snowball headed for hell.
    Standup and win the Pennant, and let’s all ring the celebration bell.
    Let’s draft a player contract so that they will want to stay ten years like they should…
    The best of the Dodger Teams may still be yet to come and hopefully the good times ain’t really over for good

  3. Roger Dodger says:

    I do not know what John Smoltz has left in the arm — but I would like to see a pitcher like him, in the Dodger doughout. Our top two pitchers are half his age, and less than 10 percent of his experience. Like having Greg M. on the bench, John would really really help.

  4. Badger says:

    With a staff as young as ours is going to be, a guy like Smoltz would be good to have around. Not to pitch, but to coach. Smoltz doesn’t have anything left in his arm, but he has plenty to offer.

  5. Roger Dodger says:

    Heck Badger, the Dodgers should hire you and I, we could shape up that ship and get a ring.

  6. Badger says:

    I don’t think those kids would listen to us Roger. We are old school and would require a disciplined approach – conditioning, diet, study – I would require they put in 8 hour days and I don’t these guys have ever done that. There would be a revolt.

  7. Roger Dodger says:

    No, no, no, no — in Texas, Nolan Ryan has his minor league pitchers on the old-time schedule of throwing, exercises, talk sessions, etc. And they are on the way.
