Even if this deal fizzles, I still tip my cap.
MLB teams and fans across the country are realizing this is a new era in Dodger baseball.
*As a fan, they have won me back*-to bad I live in Florida…Hopefully Dodger fans return to the park knowing their money is not going to support McScum and that new ownership really does want to restore this franchise.
Obviously Beckett and Crawford have trade clauses, so we’ll see.
Tonight, the bums played like a team ready to welcome one of the best first baseman in baseball to their lineup-Adrian Gonzalez. I will say it again- ADRIAN FRICKEN GONZALEZ. A team ready to give Carl Crawford a second chance like we did for Hanley and Manny. A team ready to welcome postseason stud – Josh Beckett to the rotation.
I understand the RISK!!!! But I’m focusing on the REWARD!!!!
- Remember, our problem is hitting! Not pitching!
- We still have Zach Lee and an overcrowded rotation as is. Put Blanton in the pen.
- Kershaw/Bills/Caps/Harang/Beckett/Blanton/Lilly/Ely, make it work Don
Essentially this trade is AGon/Crawford/Beckett for Rubby/Webster/$$$. Three former All-Stars vs. two young “potential” studs. You be the judge, I respect and understand both sides here.
Nothing is confirmed yet, but hopefully before 7:30am Sunday EST-72 hours from the waiver claims.
The Hanley move looks pretty good after tonight’s game doesn’t it? Eovaldi got hit hard tonight. Marlin commentators said they saw more focus, motivation, attentiveness out of Hanley tonight then they saw all the last two years-and a shorter swing.
You don’t think the blockbuster rumor has the team a little excited? We did something we hadn’t done in over 3 months- hit back to back homers at home. Rivera homered, Hanley homered…..Ethier even homered- and went 4-4 tonight.
- Pray for Bills who left in the 4th inning due to “soreness in his right arm”-if he goes down, we have some serious playoff match up problems. Kershaw is not enough to make it through the dance.
- Sad if Loney goes, I really pulled for this guy throughout the years. I will always remember him for the grand slam inChicago. I bought his jersey over Kemps five years ago. That obviously was a bad call but at that time I was convinced he would become something special. Sad story, I wish him the best if the trade goes through.
- Braves, beat the Giants already
Baseball is a funny game:
Our opening day line-up: August 26th line-up?
Isn’t new ownership with deep pockets just great!
Now, let’s figure out 2nd base!
This post is as scattered as my brain is……
