The Patient is Comatose

The Patient is Comatose

No one realizes more than I do that this is a 162 game season.  I am not worried about our pitching – it will come around (do you really believe that Kuo and Belsiario will continue to have double-digit ERA’s?  Sherrill?  I worry about him, but he can’t be THAT bad, can he?). I am [...]

Momma Said There Would Be Days Like This

Momma Said There Would Be Days Like This

Saturday was a bad day to be a Dodger fan! First the good news: Andrew Lambo went 2-5 with a triple and has raised his batting average to .306. Jerry Sands was 3-4 with 2 doubles and a triple and is hitting a lofty .421. I like the fact that Padilla hit Rowand after the [...]

He Is Who We Thought He Was

He Is Who We Thought He Was

Never mind that Vicente Padilla started on Opening Day.  That was just (you choose):  (a) a senior moment by Joe Torre; (b) a passive-aggressive shot by Torre to Dodger management that” if you don’t get me better pitchers, I’ll start a guy like this;” or (c) just a dumbass move. Here’s the deal.  Vicente Padilla [...]

Camelback Ranch – March 23rd – AM

Today is an off day, but if everything goes right, I will have photos and the inside story of the Camelback Ranch Minor League Complex.  It should be pretty cool and I think you will be amazed at the facility. A LOT WHEN ON YESTERDAY – Charlie Haeger pitched 5 or 7 strong innings against [...]

Camelback Ranch Report – Noon – March 22nd

DODGER UPDATES: Jamie Hoffman was returned to the Dodgers by the Yanks who took him in Rule 5 (as I suspected).  This is the second time the Dodgers almost lost him.  Is he back for good?    The Dodgers should be much better at AAA. Some Dodger Brass feel that Charlie Haeger cannot pitch in [...]

Dodger Dogs With Relish

Dodger Dogs With Relish

According to Dylan Hernandez of The LA Times, Hiroki Kuroda has had difficulty adjusting to pitching every five days (instead of six in Japan) and had essentially abondoned his forkball (which was his best pitch) because the American Baseballs were “slicker.”  He received some sage advice from Hideo Nomo about both and may be back [...]

At the age of 24 J.A. Happ of the Phillies was in AAA where he complied a 4-6 record with a 5.02 ERA.  At the age of 25, also in AAA, he improved to 8-7 with a 3.60 ERA, and also had a “cup of coffee” with the Phillies where he went 1-0 with a [...]

What’s On The Horizon?

What’s On The Horizon?

        I have no clue where this “Debacle in the Ravine will take us, but I’d say Jamie does not have the upper hand.   No, I’m not going to speculate on who we will sign and who we won’t or who we should trade.  Today, I just want to do some “farming.”  [...]

You Can Stop The Paranoia

You Can Stop The Paranoia

Joe Torre doesn’t have it “in” for Charlie Haeger and said Haeger will continue to be in the mix of the rotation as the team moves toward the  postseason.  Here’s what Joe said (Steve Gartner of mlb.com) “He’s a hot hand.  He’s pitched well two times in a row now. I trust him at this [...]

Wolf Has Been Better Than Adverised…

Wolf Has Been Better Than Adverised…

5th in the NL in innings pitched with 162 (only 10 behind the leader) 18th in strikeouts in the NL with 123 ERA – 3.43 WHIP – 1.14 Sounds like a pretty good pitcher and actually he has been our most consistent pitcher since the start of the season.  Solid, not spectacular and a pretty [...]
