… and I am half fast! So, there’s that!
Rants & Raves
- I think in the scheme of things, Dee Gordon becomes the Dodgers Centerfielder, IF (BIG IF) Alex Guerrero can be an adequate second-baseman. I ear that he doesn’t have the arm for 3B. I hope the Dodgers get value for Hanley, but I do not believe they will sign him. If they trade him in July, they can get a lot, or they can get a nice pick if they keep him all season. I just think that sooner is better than later.
- I worry that Joc Pederson is becoming homerun happy at Albuquerque. His strikeouts are up and he he launching homers with regularity. Albuquerque is a pox on the organization.
- I see the team without Hanley Ramirez, Andre Ethier, Carl Crawford and maybe even Joc Pederson next year.
- Peter Gammons has suggested that the Dodgers trade Zach Lee and Tom Windle for Ben Zobrist. Sounds like something Ned would do – Zobrist is 33! I don’t think the Dodgers would be giving up much and Zobrist is OK. Just OK!
- It was good to see the Dodgers have almost signed Grant Holmes. He has a lot of upside.
- Will AJ Ellis be the next Dodger manager?
- Tonight is a very winnable game with Greinke on the mound, so they will probably lose.
The new site is up. More features will be added in time. At the top of the page on the top Nav Bar, there is a STANDINGS link which gives you the current standings. I want to have a Stats and Boxscore page, but that is harder and will take some time. Let me know any suggestions you might have, but EDIT is not possible.
