The Return of R-Tron

The Return of R-Tron

A few weeks ago, Ramon Troncoso was not  a part of the Dodgers’ Master Bullpen Plan, but that has now changed… dramatically!  So far this Spring, it looks like R-Tron will be a key part of the Dodgers’ bullpen as a set-up man.  He has rediscovered his sinker and has been “light’s out” this Spring.  [...]

The Answer is Yes

The Answer is Yes

Several months ago, I was already sick of hearing how the Dodgers would not spend any money, the divorce was crippling the Dodgers, the Dodgers need a new owner and blah, blah, blah.  I was on-board with all their off-season moves – the non-tenders of Wolf and Hudson, the trade of Juan Pierre for Link [...]

Second-Guessers Are Never Wrong

Second-Guessers Are Never Wrong

Now that it’s all over, we can look back and say that Joe Torre should have brought Jon Broxton in and we would have won right? Broxton has never been known to blow a game right.  Broxton breezed last night, right?  Now, if he had brought in Brox and he had lost the game, you [...]

Doug Mientkiewicz Syndrome

I thought that Doug Mientkiewicz was smarter than he is acting. It seems that when he left camp on Friday, he also wanted his release from the Dodgers and get this – the Dodgers want to hold onto him as long as they can in case there is an injury to Garrett Anderson and they [...]

This Team is Built for the Playoffs

This Team is Built for the Playoffs

It’s good that we have a nice lead, because we might stumble a little down the stretch, but did it ever occur to you, that with the extra days of rest in the playoffs,  this team is built for just such an occasion?  As it stands right now, Clayton Kershaw would probably start game #1 of [...]

Breathing Room

Breathing Room

Randy Wolf pitched a masterful game and the Dodger bats came alive just in time to add some separation between the Dodgers and the Giants.  After last night’s loss, the Giants are now  7.5 games back with the Rockies 6.5 games back.  Neither team has the horses to catch us.  Our malaise is behind us [...]

Cooler Heads Will Prevail

Cooler Heads Will Prevail

Most Dodger fans want to throw the baby out with the bathwater.  “Everybody sucks, get a new team.  We should have traded for Lee and Halladay.  I knew this would happen, blah, blah, blah.”  Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLa.com puts it all in perspective: Before you go throwing dirt on a club with a 5½ game [...]
