Charlie Haeger cleared waivers (nobody, but nobody, wanted him). That sums it up pretty well.
Andre Ethier will be a starter in the All-Star Game. Good for him.
Other Dodgers who should be on the team: Clayton Kershaw, Jon Broxton, Rafael Furcal.
5 – The over and under on how many games Manny misses. Vote now, vote often.
Casey Blake is better than you think and he’s better defensively than LaRoche. Maybe Ned knew something we didn’t. Josh Bell was called up after hitting just .266 at AAA. Maybe the Dodgers had no 3B in the pipeline…
I though Andy LaRoche would be much better than what he has shown.
Raffy makes a huge difference on this team. If he stays healthy, the Dodgers will be hard to beat. He’s playing as well as he ever have. EVER!
The D-Backs fired Hinch and Byrnes – WOW! is all I can say… But, what I really dislike is that Dodger Legend, Kirk Gibson is now manager. This is just wrong…
For those of you who think I hate Jon Broxton: You can think what you want. I like the Big Guy, I just think he melt’s down on the big stage too often. Can he change that? Andre Ethier did. I used to rag on Andre… Look, I run a business. I own my own business and I manage people, and people who have talent, I often push harder. Jon Broxton should be so much better than he is and that’s why it upsets me when he flames out. Can he fix it? Yes, Andre did. Will he? I don’t know. I think his personality is as such that he is a “gentle giant.” I think he lacks a “mean streak.” So, if it makes you feel better that I irrationally hate JB, then think it. I think it’s just as irrational to look only at “stats.” Maybe Jon will “evolve,” but if he doesn’t, you will figure out later what I already know now!
Will the real Matt Kemp please step up?
For whatever it is worth, Cory Wade was outrighted to AAA, which opened up a roster spot. I can think of no reason the Dodgers would do that now, except for a pending trade…
Cheryl needs to go. Now! Ditto on GA!
