Goodbye Hanley?

I don’t think the question is whether Hanley Ramirez will soon move to 3B (because he won’t).  I think the real question is: “Will Hanley Ramirez be a Dodger next year?” Don Mattingly may have given us a glimpse of what the answer might be in this LA TIMES article by Dylan Hernandez: “There’s going [...]

Think about it people!

Games like yesterday build character!  They also give a team confidence.  Hanley Ramirez for MVP? Chase Utley will cost the Dodgers something like Zach Lee, Dee Gordon and Joc Pederson.  Utley will be 35 this year, so I can’t see him being a factor next year.  He’s a DH in the AL for a couple [...]

This one is not on Beckett or Mattingly

Josh Beckett was lights out and NO, Donnie Ballgame should not have taken him out.  It was a weak “seeing-eye” hit that won the game.  Beckett was awesome and Donnie did the right thing. That said, the Dodger offense should he taken outside and shot for impersonating hitters. Matt Kemp sucks! Luis Cruz sucks! The [...]

The Giants win the pennant

When THE TRADE was announced, it was assumed by most of baseball that the Dodgers would become Yankees West and buy their way to a title. The Giants lost the leading hitter in the NL to suspension. Their Cy Young winning pitcher was horrible all season. The Dodgers got Hanley Ramirez, Shane Victorino, Adrian Gonzales, [...]

Does Josh Beckett Have Anything Left?

Once upon a time, Josh Beckett was one of the best pitchers in all of baseball.  Josh also allegedly likes to party and may also be one of the best  in baseball at it. Does he have anything left in his golden arm?  It would seem to me that since he can’t “throw back as [...]

Time of death: August 25, 2012

August 25th was a day of great celebration.  The Dodgers had done the UN-imaginable and traded James Loney, Ivan DeJesus,  Allen Webster, Jerry Sands and Rubby De La Rosa for Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett, Nick Punto and (Gasp) Adrian Gonzalez!  There was much joy in  LA that night.  Print the tickets was the mantra.  After [...]
