Let the Speculation Begin…

Let the Speculation Begin…

The Blue  Jays have hung a FOR SALE sign on Roy Halliday, and Dodger fans are clamoring for a trade to be made.  Let me suggest that it’s not that simple, and the price we would have to pay would be the blood of our first-born, Clayton Kershaw!  I will say right off that I [...]

Will Manny Get Wood On The Ball?

Will Manny Get Wood On The Ball?

Rants & Raves: Thanks to Roger Dodger for the best “Get Well Pot” I have ever seen!  Very cool!  I guess that means I have to allow hom to keep ragging on me. My Physical Therapy is progressing very well.  I can walk for short distances and up and down stairs without a cane or [...]

Elbert Sent Down, More Cuts Soon

UPDATE: Dodger brass watched as Will Ohman pitched a simulated 2-inning game to Dodger minor leaguers today.  Hummmm… I wonder if he would sign for a mil?  Jason Schmidt is supposed to start today! httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4n_Az-1kDn0 The Dodgers seem intent on converting Scott Elbert back to a starter, so with that in mind, he was sent [...]

McCourt Building A Dynasty

Bill Shaiken of The LA Times writes a piece about Frank MCourt, which I believe, shows how the Dodger Brand is being polished and a Dodger Dynasty is being built.  In part, Shaiken writes: McCourt glowed about Camelback Ranch, emphasizing that the new Arizona complex is not just a spring training ballpark but a year-round [...]
