Let’s Get Real Everybody!

As fans, we root for players when the facts really show that maybe we should just consider reality.  The Dodgers will be a very interesting team this year, but today, I have a few players we should just get real about! DEE GORDON: You usually move a player from one position to another, when two [...]

3 Out of 4 on the Road

… and rolling.   One at a time.  Just win the series.  Smell the rare air of the penthouse. As I predicted over a week ago, Yasiel Puig is going to Rancho.  They play tonight.

HOME TEAM DISCOUNT

Andre Ethier absolutely gave the Dodgers a Home team Discount.  Had he continued his productive season, he could have commanded a contract that was maybe $20-25 million larger than the one he signed with the Dodgers.  However, two things come into play: The Jody Reed Factor (i.e., turning down a good contract only to find [...]

What Have We Learned From The Past?

I want you to consider a few questions and how you would have answered them on January 20, 2010: If I had told you that James Loney would hit more home runs than Andre Ethier in 2010,  would you have probably felt pretty good about the 2010 season? If I had told you that RDLR [...]
