From First to Worst in Under Two Weeks

The Dodger implosion has been nothing short of legendary as they have plummeted from the Penthouse to the Outhouse in less than two weeks.  What a fall by a bunch of marginal major leaguers who have no business of being on a major league field!  Adam Kennedy, take your wheelchair and AARP card and go [...]

Minor League Report – Draft Review

Minor League Report – Draft Review

Now that the signing deadline has passed, we have a better idea of what the Dodgers got out of their 2011 haul. I’ve broken down the first 10 picks, along with a handful of later round selections and looked at what I think was a solid, yet unspectacular class. The Top 10 List Chris Reed, [...]

John Shoemaker is Proud to be a Dodger

John Shoemaker has been in the Dodger Organization for 35 years.  He started out as a player and did well at the A level, but after that, if you look at his hitting you will know why he became a coach. Here is a list of the positions he has held with the  Dodgers: 1981-1986 [...]

The Zach Lee Interview

Before we get to the interview, let me bring up a few things that are on my mind. The PCL Factor:  Travyon Robinson hit 32 HR in about 1,100 AB’s at Inland Empire which is known as a “hitter’s league.”  Then, last season he hit 9 HR at Chattanooga (523 AB’s) which is a “pitcher’s league.”  [...]

Interview: Garrett Gould Is Becoming a Pitcher

In what can really be called his “breakout season” Garratt Gould has went from “Suspect” to “Top Ten” Prospect for the Dodgers. Garrett is 6′ 4″ and 190 (I’d say he’s more like 215) is in his third professional season.  Actually, he only pitched 2 innings three years ago at age 17.  Last year, he [...]

Report From The Fort

Report From The Fort

Ft. Wayne, Indiana –  Allen Webster is a work in progress, but he was impressive, except for a monster home run by Padres prospect Everett Williams.  By my count, Webster threw 113 pitches in his 5 innings, allowing 2 hits and 1 run while striking out 7.  He walked 6, which is uncharacteristic because he [...]

Bad Penny

Bad Penny

Just like a Bad Penny to come back again.  I have destroyed all my Dodger phots of Penny and the Dodgers should destroy him today.  I will not said anything bad about someone who is gone: Hit This! So, “HE’S GONE!  GOOD!” I would love it if we score 20 today! Nice win last night.  [...]

Just Rants & Raves

Doug Mientkiewicz will be one of our first call-up on September 1st.  We can use his LH bat as a pinch hitter.  Tony Abreu’s bat will be nice too. With the Rockies 4th straight loss, the Dodgers are now 5.0 games in the driver’s seat! Cliff Lee Yesterday - 5 IP/10 Hits/6 R – See that [...]

The Power of the 3-Run Homer

The Power of the 3-Run Homer

As usual, the Dodgers outhit their competition… AND LOST!  Earl Weaver called it the power of the 3-Run HR.  WE haven’t had many of those lately, but I think you will be seeing more this year and next as Ethier, Kemp and Loney mature.  I still see Loney as a 20 HR guy.  I am [...]
