James Loney is a kid in a candy store

James Loney will drive you crazy!

Watch him – he NEVER hits the same way.  He’s always tinkering with his stance and swing.  Upright, crouched, bat high, bat a little lower, long stride, short stride, high leg kick, slide step.

James Loney is a kaleidoscope of batting stances and swings.  Jack of all trades – master of none.

“Too many cooks spoil the stew.”  That’s the saying.  Makes sense to me.

Look, many of the best hitters of all time have had greatly diverse styles.

Ted Williams and Julio Franco both won batting titles – not even close in style, but both were who they were.

Who is James Loney?  That depends upon which day it is.  Ralph Garr?  Bill Madlock?  Mariano Mendosa?  Mike Scioscia?  Who knows?

James needs to listen to someone.  Not sometwo or somethree.

James is destined to fail unless he starts to get a clue, a plan, a process.  He’s lost, and the Flavor of the Week isn’t working.

Pick a style, James.  Stick to it.

Keep up the way you are going and you will be out of baseball in a year!

Sometimes, there is a fine line between success and failure.

    I tweak my golf swing all the time. It doesn’t help. Here’s some advice for James ….. see the ball hit the ball. Square it up Jaime. It isn’t rocket surgery. Pull the inside pitch and drive the outside pitch back through the box. I believe sometimes you can think your way right into a slump. When that happens, you need to hit your way out of it. Easy peasy.

    Oh yeah, on more thing……. Fire Frank.

    This from Dylan Hernandez. “The Dodgers are offering heavily discounted tickets at for their July 4 home game against the New York Mets. Reserve-level tickets are $4, loge-level tickets are $14 and field-level tickets are $24 when using the promotional code July4. The offer expires at 9 a.m. Monday.”

    Could the Monday, June 13 deadline be a sign that McLeverage is attempting to add some more front loaded money to help meet payroll next week on June 15?

    “Square it up Jaime.” Was that a Freudian slip Badger?

    “Fire Frank”. I hope that’s “Easy peasy.”

  3. Brooklyn Dodger says:

    In fact, I believe that payroll must be in place before the actual pay date. Could that explain not only the June 13 deadline, but the 9 am part of it too?

  4. Brooklyn Dodger says:

    By the way, Russell Martin is beginning to slip. Could his fast start be a mirage?

  5. Badger says:

    Who’s Russell Martin? Oh yeah, him. He is injured again. Bad back. Got the Furcal disease.

    Jaime is often used for James in Spanish. No slip. Purposeful attempt to appeal to Los Doyers fans.

    Maybe that July 4th game is nationally televised and McUnctuous doesn’t want all those empty seats showing up for everyone to see. That would be embarrassing for him.

    I think we are in last place. Or, tied for 4th, which sounds maybe a little better. The good news is, if we keep this up we will have a high draft pick next year, so, we got that going for us.

    And a high draft pick with a new owner might actually mean something.
