First Thing – Let’s start with the fact that “Kinky” Hernandez is a little crazy, but it’s a good crazy! [...]
The Dodgers first three starters are solid, if no spectacular, but the next two are solid long men. Maybe Bolsinger could be asked to pitch 4 innings and Frias 4 innings and then call in Jansen. That might work, but at this stage of their careers, neither can be relied upon to pitch too many innings. I would trade Yasiel Puig to the Phillies for Cole Hamels – Philly would do that [...]
Rumor has it that Dodger players are sick and tired of Puig and would welcome him being traded.
They say it would be “addition by subtraction.”
This is what I was afraid of with him. His trade value has taken a big dive.
Puig for Hamels? That may be all we can get…
I told you so! Long ago! But, most of you knew better!
I mean, the Dodgers only lost 10-6. Compare that with Ogden who got blitzkrieged by Orem 21-2 or the DSL Dodgers who got massacred by the DSL Rockies 16-4 or maybe the Great Lakes Loons who got beat by the Dayton Dragons 9-2. Add in the fact that Nashville beat OKC by a 4-2 margin and the Dodgers and all their farm teams were murderlated yesterday by a 60 to 16 margin. YI[...]
It’s so crazy it might work… or maybe it’s just crazy!
Here it is:
Baseball is floundering in Miami. They are averaging about 20,000 a game in a beautiful new stadium. The team isn’t winning because they don’t have enough bats. What they need is more hitting and a way to attract fans. Coincidently, there are almost 1.5 million Cubans in Miami.[...]
I think it’s about time we learn something from the teams who seem to always be there in the playoffs and beat us like rented mules. I’m talking about the Cardinals and the Giants. Here’s five(5) things we need to learn:
Don’t overpay for your free agents – the Giants let the Panda walk and the Cards let Pujols walk and they never missed a beat![...]
Here we go again – this still team has issues with good teams but has no problem beating the Little Sisters of the Poor! I remain unimpressed. Well, Brett Anderson impresses me. Arguably he is a solid #3 for the Dodgers. The way he is pitching now, I would not be afraid to have him in the #3 slot in the playoffs. Remember, he hasn’t pitched much the past three years. He&[...]
It was in 2010 that AJ Ellis fist saw some time with the Dodgers with 108 AB’s and he hit .278 with a .363 OB%. In 2011, he had 85 AB’s and hit .271 with a .392 OB% and then in 2012 he had 478 AB’s in which he put up a .270 BA to go along with a .373 OB%. He was a real offensive asset to the team. However, in 2013 he dropped to .238 and .318 in 390 AB’s and then last[...]
So, Ken Gurnick of Dodgers.com quoted Andrew Friedman as saying this about Joe Maddon:
“We have a great relationship, we’re very good friends,” he said. “We were at each other’s wedding. We text a lot. H[...]
So, Donnie moved Yasiel Puig to 5th in the batting order because he is hitting .250 in the last 7 days. OK – I’m fine with that. BUT ADRIAN GONZALEZ IS HITTING .204 THE LAST 14 DAYS AND MATTINGLY LEAVES HIM AT CLEANUP? Huh?
Where is the logic in that? Move Gonzo down until he gets his stroke back (and he will). This ain’t rocket science.[...]
