How stupid can you get?

Juan Uribe has 117 AB”s and is OPSing .778.  Luis Cruz has 111 AB’s and is OPSing .365.  So, Cruz is in the lineup today.  How stupid can you get? Clayton Kershaw is more dominant than ever, now that he is pitching to contact.  He has a 1.84 ERA and 0.97 WHIP, and yet he [...]

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 [...]

Todays game shouldn’t matter…

Win or lose, this team needs a new direction and it has to start with the manager.  Most of you were excited with the team Ned put on the field (not me so much), so Ned won’t get axed mid-season.  The rest of the Dodger brass proclaimed their satisfaction with the team but declined to [...]

Can Cruz Keep Cruzing?

Luis Cruz has been hot with the bat while displaying a stone glove at 3B.  I really hope Cruz can hit like he did last year (which isn’t great for a 3B, but so much better than Uribe, that it seems good).  Let’s realize that at age 29, he has a total of 437 AB’s [...]

Juan Uribe is a Good Guy Who Has Been Bad…

Yeah, I know he’s been horrible as a Dodger, but he is a good guy, good teammate and well-liked by his peers.  That at least speaks to his character, but not his talent.  For the record, I am predicting a resurgence for Uribe this year and while he has been absolutely awful as a Dodger, [...]

The Natives are Restless…

With Spring Training only a few days away, it seems more and more likely that the Dodgers will go to Glendale with the team, as is.  It is likely that they would trade Andre Ethier, if they were overwhelmed, which they evidently haven’t.  The World Baseball Classic is what will impact Spring Training more than [...]

Will the Real Carl Crawford Step up?

Everyone is talking about how the Dodgers need more pitchers, better starters, get rid of Capuano and Lilly and Harang and get Price, Sheilds, Dempster and/or Greinke.  In case, I was watching a different game than you, the Dodger’s pitching was pretty good last season.  The Dodgers were 3rd in all of Major League Baseball [...]

It’s pure junkyard dogism!

Euphoria is something Dodger fans haven’t felt lately.  My house was dark at a little after midnight.  There was just one room lit and that was my office (I watched every last pitch of the game, so never call me a fair-weather fan).  The family was in bed when they heard me clap and yell [...]

What Might Have Been…

It was in 2004, that I first really noticed Andy LaRoche.  He was a 20 year-old third baseman who ended up with 23 HR and 76 RBI in A ball.  The next season, he hit 30 HR with 94 RBI and had a slash line of .305/.374/.553.  He had amazing opposite-field power – I said [...]

In a corresponding move, the club also transferred left-handed pitcher Ted Lilly (left shoulder inflammation) to the 60-day disabled list. Tolleson, 24, posted a 7.71 ERA in six big league [...]
