Still Crying Over Youkilis

Kevin Youkilis is hitting third for the White Sox and has raised his batting average to .249.  He hit the game winning homerun last night and scored two runs, but the Dodgers weren’t interested.  They were stupid then and they are stupider now.  Here’s the deal:  my son-in-law is a Red Sox fan and he [...]

From Junkyard Dogs to Humiliated Chihuahuas

Two weeks ago, these Dodgers were playing out the dream and were junkyard Dogs – getting a key hit here and there, out-pitching the other team, coming from behind, scraping and hustling and never giving up.  What a different a few days make.  They are no longer fierce junkyard dogs, but are now Humiliated Chihuahuas, [...]

The Dodgers Need a Closer, I Have a Plan

I wrote this last week and I’ll keep it up until someone listens. Javy Guerra has lost his mojo, but I still think he can be an important part of the pen.  Kenley Jansen is not ready to close.  I love Josh Lindblom and maybe he could close, but I just don’t see it right [...]

Dee Gordon Has To Go Down

Look, I am a big Dee Gordon fan.  I predicted that he would steal 80 bases this year and hit close to .300 and I still believe that. However, he has to go down.  He is off to a start that sports a .192 BA with a .263 OB%.  That’s horrible! Dee Gordon has to [...]

As Hated As Adolph Hitler?

This 2011 version of the Dodgers may be hard to figure out, but I saw a bunch of happy excited young ballplayers last night when Tony Gwynn, Jr. drove in the winning run.  In a season where victories have been few and sometimes, far-between, the Dodgers got another command performance from their Ace, and Tony [...]
