Where’s The Beef?

100% Beef

Kansas City decided to “beef up” their bullpen and so they added Jon Broxton.  Now we know where the beef is.  I have no beef with J-Brox.  Kansas City is famous for cattle, but I’ll stop now because I’m not in the mooooood to barbecue Jon Broxton.

Good Luck, Jon!

Don’t poo-poo Adam Kennedy – he’s a winner.  If the Dodgers sign him, he’ll  be taking Carroll and Miles place because he can play SS.  Miles could not play SS and was not a great glove, but maybe a better hitter.  I’m fine with Kennedy, especially if he takes Sellers place.

Be Very Afraid

As many Dodger fans ravaged Frank McCourt and begged for a new owner, I frequently said “be careful of what you wish for, because you might get someone worse.”  Right about now, you should be very afraid as possible new owners are posturing to get their hands on the Dodgers.

Steve Garvey and Orel Hershiser – This is a joke.  Orel  Hershiser is a poker player and Steve Garvey can’t manage his own affairs… and speaking of affairs, how many kids does he really have?  Dozens?  Twenty-five?  Fifty?  Who knows?

Peter O’Malley – He ceased to be relevant in the mid-80′s.  Yes, he was part of the Dodger Family for a long time, but if he couldn’t get it done 15 years ago, what makes you think he can now.

Fred Claire – Get real!  Hey, didn’t you get us Delino DeShields and trade Piazza (maybe you were forced, yeah that’s it)?

Mark Cuban – That would be awesome.  Ain’t gonna’ happen…

Dennis Gilbert – Even Odds!  But, what will he do?

    On what planet can Kennedy play shortstop?

    • Mark_Timmons says:


      You are right. He can\’t play SS. I saw him play SS once a few years ago when he was with St. Louis and thought he could be an emergency SS. Turns out that was his only game at SS.

      I stand corrected!

    Fred Claire didn’t even know Mike Piazza was traded until Fox told him according to Freds book. That’s the way Fox ran the business.

    i could care less how many kids garvey has.

    that being said, i just pray to the good lord that we get a real owner!

    so really besides cuban who would be the best owner .who do you want the owner to be mark?

  5. Bobby says:

    does anybody really care about who the owner is after the current owner just got us Will Ledezma and Adam Kennedy?!!

  6. Roger Dodger says:

    If I were Frank McCourt, I would bring up the value of the Dodgers by signing Fielder to a 5 or 6 year contract. That makes the Dodgers a better team, and thus, more value.

    He would be able to have some higher offers for the team.

    If he does not sign that type of impact player — those type of players might be gone or off the market (signed elsewhere) — and when the new ownership finally takes over — those kind of players will be gone. Then it would be a trade — having to give up some players for an impact player and still pay the contract.
