You may or may not know that I have another site http://www.indyprosports.com/ that covers the Indiana Pacers, Indianapolis Colts, Indy Car and the Indianapolis Indians. I have a partner who is supposed to blog about that, but he also is busy, so it is a red-headed stepchild. We neglect it. I have Press Passes at the Indianapolis Indians games (AAA Affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates) but have never used them the past two years because I prefer going with my family. Maybe when I was younger…. but I have no desire now.
Anyway, I digress. We went to the game Saturday night. The reason I am writing about this is because Jerry Sands in the Indianapolis Indians 4th outfielder and Ivan DeJesus, Jr. is a backup infielder. After watching them, I understand. Sadly, I get it! Jerry Sands is hitting .153 and looks totally lost at the plate against AAA pitching. IDJ2 is at .324 after going 2-4 today, but he is slow and has a limited future. Jerry Sands has very little to offer. IDJ2 is a utility-man.
The Indians also have have Bryan Morris as their closer. He’s 26 years old and not a bad AAA closer – he’s doing well this year and could have a future with the Pirates though.
I only mention this because all three of these player were once the DODGERS TOP PROSPECTS. Add them to Trayvon Robinson. Andy LaRoche, Josh Bell, Joe Thurston and many others who were once TOP 10 Suspects.
What is wrong with the Dodger System that they keep running these “pretenders” out there? Thoughts?
P.S. Clayton took it into his own hands yesterday. He knew he couldn’t trust the Dodgers offense.
Laker fans: You need a new coach and he resides in Indianapolis. He will be one heck of a head coach for you. Brian Shaw! Get him. Here is a great article about him.
