What Might Have Been…

It was in 2004, that I first really noticed Andy LaRoche.  He was a 20 year-old third baseman who ended up with 23 HR and 76 RBI in A ball.  The next season, he hit 30 HR with 94 RBI and had a slash line of .305/.374/.553.  He had amazing opposite-field power – I said [...]

Indictment of Dodger Hitting Coaches

Indictment of Dodger Hitting Coaches

I don’t know what’s going on in the Dodgers farm system, but I do know that many hitters on all levels are underperforming. This is readily apparent on the major league level where the Dodgers have been in a hitting malaise for an extended period of time, even though they have two (count ‘em, two) hitting coaches.

Right or Wrong?

Right or Wrong?

Rants & Raves A few days ago when Joe Torre named Vicente Padilla the Opening Day Starter, eyebrows were raised because the guy who is arguably the #4, maybe the #5 starter on the team was picked.  That is troubling, especially in light of the fact that some of the writers who regularly cover the [...]

Repko Waived

Repko Waived

With no room and no where to play him, the Dodgers waived Jason Repko.  Nice guy,  I’m sure all the MLB Teams are lining up to sign him. He’s a photo of his most famous play.  No shock here.

Johnson Won’t Run Over The Shortstop

Johnson Won’t Run Over The Shortstop

If the reports are true, and Reed Johnson is going to sign with the Dodgers, I would think that Jason Rekpo is the “odd man out.”  While I like Jason Repko, he has not “seized the day” and shown that he can hit major league pitching.   Johnson is the not the equal of Repko on [...]

Do We Really Need This?

Do We Really Need This?

Tony Jackson of ESPN.LosAngeles and Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times are both reporting of the Dodgers interest in several players for the 4th outfield spot.  I suppose  there are reasons to consider Gross, Anderson and maybe even Johnson, but Brian Giles?  He became irrelevant a couple of years ago.  The problem is that none [...]

It’s All About Perspective

It’s All About Perspective

Here’s a great analysis about Jason Repko from Phil Gurnee of TrueBlueLa: Based on what Ned Colletti is saying, Jason Repko appears to be staying around for the moment. With the Dodgers trying very hard to trade Juan Pierre and his contract for either a starting pitcher or a 2nd baseman the battle for who [...]

Spiderman Attacks

Spiderman Attacks

 The ball looked like it was gone, but suddenly Spiderman aka/Andre Ethier, shot out his net, scaled the wall and brought it back into the park, all this after walking to deliver the winning run for the Dodgers.  It was the Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp show.  Get used to it.   After a rough start, [...]
