It is with great pleasure that I want to introduce you to a new Dodger website:  www.Dodgerscribe.com. This website is from my good friend Tony Jackson, who has been on sabbatical for a while.  I think it will be a good.. no, it will be a GREAT site.  Dig in and enjoy. This is probably [...]

Six-Step Blueprint for a World Championship

By virtue of an incredible 40+ game stretch, the Dodgers are soundly entrenched in first place in the NL West and it is not likely (barring major injury) that any team can catch them.  However, the real work has just started.  Now, Stan & Ned and Company go to work on the Blueprint for a [...]

A Twist of Positive

OK, I have been very negative about this team for quite some time and while I have been spot on, there is reason for hope.  The only thing that worries me is that Ned will make one of his dope-fiend moves and mess it up.  I mean, why does he keep Cruz on the team [...]

I am tired of these lying Dodgers

They told us that Magic Johnson would be “hands on and in his office every day.”  That was a damn lie.  I see him everywhere that has to do with the Lakers or the NBA, but he has no office in Dodger Stadium and he rarely shows up at games. The Dodgers told us that [...]

Sands, IDJ2 and Morris

You may or may not know that I have another site http://www.indyprosports.com/ that covers the Indiana Pacers, Indianapolis Colts, Indy Car and the Indianapolis Indians.  I have a partner who is supposed to blog about that, but he also is busy, so it is a red-headed stepchild.  We neglect it.  I have Press Passes at the Indianapolis [...]

Go Big or Stay Home From the Winter Meetings

Fearless Predictions: The Dodgers will sign Zach Greinke this week to a 6 year/$150 million done deal! This team is built for the next 3-5 years as it sits.  Drafting and other smart moves will restore the farm system, but A-Gone, Crawford, Ramirez, Kemp and others are in their prime.  The Dodgers need players now [...]

Do Something, Even if it is Wrong!

You can do nothing… and maybe that’s the right thing to do. Or, you can do something… and maybe that’s the right thing to do. Sure, you can say it’s not the hitting coaches fault, because the players have to actually hit the ball.  The coach can’t hit it for them.  You can say that [...]

The Magic Is Gone

No, I’m not talking about the team.  I’m talking about Magic Johnson.  In the beginning, Magic said he was going to be “hands on” and there in his office everyday.  He doesn’t have an office and he’s NEVER there.  My only question is why did Guggs and Company feel they had to use Magic Johnson [...]

Corey Seager Taken With First Pick

The last time Logan White took a position player with the first pick in the draft was in 2002 on a pitcher named Loney.   Wait!  Loney was a pitcher too – he was just converted to 1B. Oh, maybe he’s going to convert Seager to become a pitcher.  You will read all over the blogosphere [...]

Grow the Arms, Buy the Bats

I think that was/is Logan White’s Mantra.  Logan wants to draft pitchers and if he doesn’t draft a pitcher, he converts the guy into one (Loney, Martin, Jansen).  That tells me that the Dodgers will be loathe to trade young arms… and that is good. What that means is that you shouldn’t expect the Dodgers [...]

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!

What Will Dee Gordon Do?

I think that the Dodgers success, or lack thereof in 2012, will depend upon the Rookie at Short Stop.   Will Dee Gordon be a 40/40 guy (40 SB’s and 40 errors or a 70/25 guy (70 SB’s and 25 errors)?    If he gets 70 stolen bases, it will mean that he is playing, [...]

Strange Times That We Live…

We live in a time when wins and saves evidently don’t mean anything for pitchers.  A time when batting average and RBI are diminished because of new stats like WAR, OBP, OPS and  plethora of other statistics that can prove whatever the writer wants.  Stats?  Yeah – I read ‘em, I  like ‘em – I [...]

Rant & Rave Saturday

In a year when there has been very little to be excited about (except Kershaw and Kemp), the Dodgers minor league teams are a combined 40 games over .500 and every team at every level currently has a winning record.  There’s hope on the farm. Javy Guerra has looked like a closer this year, but I [...]

Frank McCourt’s Shoes

OK, this far-fetched, but put yourselves into Frank McCourt’s size 10-1/2′s for a minute.  You are hated almost as bad as… well you know who.  You have no BIS (that’s “butts in seats”), which means that you are losing hundreds of thousands of dollars a game and you haved a short time to make something [...]

Logan White Interview – Part 5

Logan White Interview – Part 5

Here’s the last in the Logan White Mini-series. In this one, Jon Broxton bursts in the door during the interview and chokes me out. Enjoy! I actually ran out of batter or the interview would have lasted another 1/2 hour.  I’ll have 2 batteries next time.  Logan has agreed to do this a few more [...]
