… and I look like a moron. Bobby Carmona and Kevin Koufax have been awesome – at least in their first starts. I criticized Ned for the pickup of Kevin, but so far it looks pretty good.
I’m glad, but I still stand by what I said.
RANTS & RAVES
(Wikipedia) “From 1903 through 1968, this height limit was set at 15 inches, but was often slightly higher, sometimes as high as 20 inches, especially for teams that emphasized pitching, such as the Los Angeles Dodgers, who were reputed to have the highest mound in the majors.
Some teams have never had a no-hitter pitched inside their stadiums. The Dodger have ten, count ‘em 10! Of course, the Dodgers had good pitchers, but they also had a pitchers park and a mound that was 5 inches taller. Smoke that!
- Carl Crawford is starting to look pretty good right now. He can really motor too, but I keep waiting for him to grab that hammy! Can he stay healthy? I doubt it.
- It’s not fair for Zack Lee to be at Albuquerque – he has no chance there. I am not a big fan of his, but they did him a huge dis-service moving him there. Name the last good pitcher for the Dodgers that pitched there!
- I really think Dee Gordon will be the CF next year. Guerrero goes to 2B and Arruebarrena goes to SS. Crawford and Ethier have to move along. Uribe will be pushed at 3B by Seager. The biggest need is a catcher who can hit. Russ Martin was one of my favorites – maybe they can re-sign him (3 years – $40 million).
- Put Pete Rose and Gil Hodges in the Hall of Fame!
- Gordon CF
- Martin C
- Puig RF
- Kemp LF
- Gonzalez 1B
- Guerrero 2B
- Uribe/ Seager 3B
- Arrrr SS
