In a year when there has been very little to be excited about (except Kershaw and Kemp), the Dodgers minor league teams are a combined 40 games over .500 and every team at every level currently has a winning record. There’s hope on the farm.
Javy Guerra has looked like a closer this year, but I don’t think he’s any more than a middle guy. It’s just my opinion that he’s been very lucky – I hope I’m wrong.
Hopefully, Kenley Jansen has the heart to close.
Remember this name: Raydel Sanchez! Logan White signed this Cuban defector. He’s at Ogden, and while his stats aren’t eye-popping, he has good control and his stuff is being compared with RDLR, albeit not near 100 MPH.
Does Ned actually have any knowledge of how to make a trade to get value in return?
Imagine how good Matt Kemp would be if he had ANY protection behind him.
Andre Ethier is a pretender.
James Loney is a flat-out dud!
Carlos Monasterios had TJ surgery – I wonder why they waited 2/3 of the season when he hasn’t been able to pitch?
The Giants got better with Beltran, but the Phils remain the front-runner with the aqusition of Hunter Pence. They are the Yankees NL.
Casey Blake will be back for how many games?
Has Raffy shown he is healthy enough for any team to want to trade for him?
Dee Gordon was exposed at the MLB level, went down and got better. The same can’t be said for Jerry Sands or IDJ2. T-Rob needs another year.
I have come to the conclusion that Jamie McCourt was 80% of the McCourt Family’s problems, but the horse is too far out of the barn to save Frank, barring a miracle!
I plan to go to see the Great Lakes Loons play tomorrow in Ft. Wayne. I’ll have a report and some pix after that.
