I haven’t talked about junkyard dogs and junkyard dogism for about a year, because the Dodger Blue Bloods who make $20 million a year are not junkyard dogs.
To me, being called a “junkyard dog” is an honor of the highest order. A Junkyard Dog is someone who overcomes obstacles to thrive. If I call you a junkyard dog, it is an honor I bestow upon you.
That said, in his first start as a Dodger, Darwin Barney EVOLVED into a junkyard dog. Darwin played an incredible 2B, manufactured a run and just displayed pure junkyard dogism throughout the game.
Dan Haren again looked pretty good (can you say $10 million extension?). YIKES! I’m not sure I want that!
AJ Ellis needs to be the backup next year, but the Dodgers should start developing catchers. The ghosts of Roy Campanella and John Roseboro demand it! Anyone for Russ Martin for 3 years?
Is Scott Schebler becoming a bona-fide prospect? He has 24 HR at AA.
You heard it here first – Corey Seager is moving to 3B!
