A Titantic Problem

The team that had not lost as many as three in a row has now lost five in a row!  The iceberg has destroyed  the hull.  The ship is taking on water.  There are no lifeboats.   The rats are jumping off the ship.   The world is ending.  We will all be killed! Now, take a [...]

The Future of the Ravine

When Frank McCourt bought the Dodgers, we knew he did it with OPM.   That’s “Other People’s Money.” We knew Frank was highly leveraged.  Frank was criticized for that, but had he and Jamie taken a “reasonable” amount of money as salary instead of nearly $200 million, he might still be the owner and looking pretty [...]

Stirring The Pot?

Stirring the pot?  Me?  I resemble that statement!  However, this I believe: Manny Ramirez has become a liability – he’ll get better, but he’s still a liability; Russ Martin will regain his post-2009 form (maybe this month, maybe next year); I like Orlando Hudson, but he will probably be too expensive.  I think the Dodgers would [...]

June 3, 2009 – Minor League Report

Great Lakes Loons – Low A The Loons lost 6-4 without much fanfare, but it is worth noting that since May 1, Ethan Martin’s ERA is near 7.00.  Last night he pitched 4 innings, giving up 5 hits and 6 runs and raising his over ERA to 4.43.  Not what he expected.  Not what we [...]
