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 [...]

Rant & Rave Friday

Garrett Wilson points out that Baseball-Reference has obviously deleted Ryan Brauns’ 2011 MVP deliberately.  At first, I was behind Ryan Braun, but after hearing all the sides, I still think he is a BIG FAT CHEATER!   He just got off.  That’s just my opinion and I’m sticking to it.  I support Baseball-Reference for their stand!

The Latest Scuttlebutt

The Latest Scuttlebutt

Ron Mahay is gone – probably to peddle his service to the D-Backs since he lives there. Welcome to Los Angeles, Scott Elbert! Ditto for IDJ2!  Between you and me:  the Dodgers are really happy with changes IDJ2 has made since his NO CALLUP SEPTEMBER! Who will be the Dodger’s 5th Starter?  Not Ely!  Not [...]

Camelback Ranch – GameTime, Sat. March 19

Camelback Ranch – GameTime, Sat. March 19

With the likelihood that Casey Blake will start the season on the DL, Ivan DeJesus, Jr. is back in the mix to start the season at 2B.  He would push Uribe over to 3B and Miles could still make the team along with Carroll to serve as Utilitymen, but there’s a lot to be decided [...]

Parting Shots

As Jared reported, I am headed to Camelback Ranch.  I arrive in PHX tonight at 8:30 (that’s 11:30 my time), so I won’t go to Camelback until Saturday Morning.  Here are a few parting shots: AS expected, Justin Sellers was re-assigned back to minor league camp.  That the Dodgers opted to send Jerry Sands with [...]

The Old Bull & The Young Bull

The Old Bull & The Young Bull

There’s an old story about an old bull and a young bull.  The old bull and the young bull were standing at the top of the hill overlooking a paddock of many gorgeous young heifers. The young bull said, “Let’s charge down the hill, knock over that fence and service one of those heifers each”. [...]

Second Base Is Covered

Second Base Is Covered

You don’t have to justify Theriot. See, here’s the deal. Ivan DeJesus, Jr. (IDJ2) is ready. Why didn’t you give him a callup in September? Don’t answer that, because if you are truthful, you will have to admit to being a dumbass. So, never mind. Look, IDJ2 is ready (did I mention that?).

Suspects or Prospects?

Suspects or Prospects?

I had a cheesy grin on my face as I read the Top 200 Prospect list put out by True Blue LA.  The Dodgers do not have 200 Prospects.  They have about 20 PROSPECTS and 180 SUSPECTS!  However, the Dodgers Organization is not nearly as bereft of prospects as some think.  We don’t have 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.”  [...]
