Camelback Ranch – The Dodger Lineup

Camelback Ranch – The Dodger Lineup

One need look no further than the first inning of Thursday’s game to to see the benefits of having Rafael Furcal and Matt Kemp hit 1, 2 in the Dodger lineup. Raffy doubled to start the game and Kemp followed it with a sharp single to left field which allowed Raffy to go to 3B. [...]

Camelback Ranch – Down on the Farm

Camelback Ranch – Down on the Farm

When I first heard that  the Dodgers would leave Vero Beach and move to Camelback Ranch, I knew that it was the end of an era, and that there would never in a million years be another place like Dodgertown.  Sadly and happily, I was right!  Dodgertown was a mythical place, where dreams were made [...]

What Do We Know?

What Do We Know?

It pains me a great deal when fans berate players - ”He’s a bum.”  “He’s worthless.”  “He can’t play.”   What do we know?  As it turns out, not much.   I will say that anyone who plays at the major league level is so far advanced over anyone else that it’s like comparing my writing ability to Jon [...]

Is Logan White Losing His Touch?

Is Logan White Losing His Touch?

As we get ready to turn the calendar and approach another Spring Training it is being asked in certain circles – how good is the Los Angeles Dodger minor league system? And, as that question is answered, and frankly we won’t know for a while, the question on many Dodger blog sites is being asked [...]

Logan White and De Jon Watson Interview

OK, like I promised, here is  the video of the interview I did with Logan White and De Jon Watson on Wednesday, December 9th at the Winter Meetings. We had to break it down into two video files because of the length.  I think you can sense their excitement and enthusiasm for the farm system [...]

A Cold Day in… Indy!

A Cold Day in… Indy!

It’s still about 14 degrees out – who was the genius who picked Indy for the Winter Meetings?  I’ll bet he’s fired! We are editing the Logan White/De Jon Watson interview – I hope to have it up tomorrow. Hey, how come nobody says anything when the Dodgers have 2 other teams pick Rule 5 [...]

Indianapolis Winter Meetings – Day 3 Update

Indianapolis Winter Meetings – Day 3 Update

After talking with lots and lots of scouts, pro personnel people and writers, I am convinced that the Dodgers did the right thing in refusing arbitration to Wolf and Hudson.  There are lots of reasons why and I will articulate them later this week.  I overheard some other scouts talking about the Dodgers Young Arms and [...]

Indianapolis Winter Meetings – Day 3

Indianapolis Winter Meetings – Day 3

There’s not a lot of movement, so far – Just the D-Backs trade with the Tigers and Yankees.   I find it curious that the D-Backs gave away “Mad-Max” so easily. Jamie and Frank have allegedly agreed on her monthly stipend so the hearing is cancelled the 15th! Ned is kicking the tires of Pinero and [...]

May 30, 2009 – My Last Game In Chicago

May 30, 2009 – My Last Game In Chicago

I have only been down on the field once, because it is just too painful to walk.  I have appointments with two orthopaedic surgeons next week about my hip.  I plan to go down before the game today if the Advil allows me, but I am heading back home after the game and will watch [...]
