Bullpens are notoriously fickle – good one year, bad the next! But, I want you to tell me when teams have been successful by going out and buying (trading) for bullpen back end muscle? The Nats traded for J-Pap and installed him as the closer after Drew Storen had been exceptional all year. I’ll bet they have some big problems in that clubhouse right about now.
Andre Ethier he’s my man,
Hero of our nation,
For his adventures just be sure,
and stay tuned to this station.
You know I have always loved and admired Andre Ethier! [...]
Jose Peraza was not a throw-in with the Atlanta/Marlins deal. I believe FAZ acquired their second baseman for 2016. Unless Kendrick takes a one-year qualifying offer, he will not be back next year because someone will give him some big bucks. The fact of the matter is that the Dodgers could use a leadoff hitter as well, but Peraza is much more than that. He’s young (21) and accordin[...]
Jon Weisman of Dodger Insider had a pretty detailed conversation with Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi and I think that a few of the things he said really should give you an idea of how the Dodgers front office thinks and the direction they are headed.[...]
This may be it insofar as moves that FAZ makes… or not! It’s one of the two. This I do know.
Gary Sheffield said Justin Turner should take a shower (sounds Mrsa to me), but Sheffield should make liberal use of mental floss!
This DL trip for Turner could be a blessing in disguise. It means he should be fresh down the stretch… if he doesn’t di[...]
The Dodgers will make some more moves before Friday’s game, but you probably already know that following today’s trades, the Los Angeles Dodgers added left-handed reliever Luis Avilan, right-handed reliever Jim Johnson, right-handed pitcher Mat Latos and left-handed pitcher Alex Wood to the roster, placed right-handed pitcher Bronson Arroyo on the 60-day disabled list (right elbow surge[...]
The Clock is Ticking!
It’s no secret that the Dodgers need a Starting Pitcher and a Set-Up Man. It may have to be a 3 or 4 way deal to make it work, but if I had my druthers, it would be Noah Seth Syndergaard and Ardolis Chapman. I would be willing to trade Yasiel Puig, Alex Guerrero, Andre Ethier, Chris Anderson, Zach Lee and Mike Bolsinger or Carlos Frias to make that [...]
Badger and Roger and The Truth can all vouch for the fact that I like to stir the pot… and that’s what I have been doing the past few days. I embellished my outrage… a little… OK, maybe a lot! So, I will come clean. The truth is as follows:
I like FAZ a lot – they aren’t perfect, but overall they have done a good job.
I was on board [...]
So, as not to offend anyone, and in my resolve to be totally politically correct, I am revising my previous posts.
Zach Lee is a fine young man who helps little old ladies across the street, loves Jesus and helps the poor. His first major league outing is not indicative of his tremendous potential. It was just bad luck that so many of his pitches hit bats. It could happen to [...]
Let me cut to the chase. Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi traded team and fan favorite, Juan Uribe to the Braves several weeks ago for milktoast Ian Thomas and Alberto Callaspo. Of course, the Braves just traded Uribe to the Mets. Earlier last week, Juan Uribe beat the Dodgers twice driving in the winning run and he did it again today! The star is starting to tarnish on King FAZ’[...]
