What Can the Dodgers Expect From 3B?

It appears to me that the Dodgers have two options at 3B:  Juan Uribe and Jerry Hariston, Jr.  Neither one has ever terrorized pitchers and neither one will make us forget Adrian Beltre… however I digress. What to expect: Juan Uribe – At 5′-11″ and at least 230 pounds, Juan would be wise to show [...]

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 [...]

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.”  [...]
