You will have to listen to the You Tube attachment in order to understand this.
The Dodgers just keep rolling Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford out to LF and they are horrid… actually they are beyond horrid. Ned Colletti has to keep them on the team because he signed one and traded for the other and still owes them a combined $120 million.
Now, here’s the kicker: The Dodgers have Justin Turner on the roster who is hitting .310 and plays the game the right way. I know he can play left field. Tell me with a straight face that this isn’t a better lineup without Crawford or Ethier:
- Gordon 2B
- Turner LF
- Puig CF
- Gonzalez 1B
- Kemp RF
- Ramirez SS
- Uribe 3B
- Ellis C
Does anyone really think Crawford and Ethier are going to get better as they age? In Ned’s defense, he signed a guy for $1 million who is better than two guys making $40 mil a year! He still should be fired! The Dodgers also have control of Turner for two more years. Play him, you dumbasses!
Below is a real phone call with Ned calling into the Mr. Obvious Show:
Rants & Raves
- Beckett is toast
- When Brandon League came in Sunday, I looked at his stats and wondered “How long will he continue to be so lucky?” Not long, it turned out!
- Chris Perez blows… really!
- Joc Pederson with #24 and Corey Seager OPS’ing .879 at AA.
- Chris Reed went 7 innings allowing 5 hits and 1 run Sunday. Could his next start be up two levels?
