How the West was bought…’er won!

Los Angeles Dodgers – $216,753,000 Arizona Diamondbacks – $86, 300,000 Colorado Rockies – $73,949,000 San Diego Padres – $68,333,000 San Francisco Giants -  $136,908,000 That tells the tale.  The Dodgers bought the NL West.  I’m happy because I am a Dodger fan, but I’m not proud.  Anyone can overspend and maybe win because of it.  [...]

Don’t Eat Fish: Dodgers Choke on Marlin

There’s not much to say about this bunch – they have the 2nd best OB% in the NL and are almost last in runs scored and last in hitting with RISP.  That’s all you need to know.  No matter how you spin it, this team is a bunch of choke artists.  There is no fix [...]

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 [...]

Coke – The Real Thing Behind Belisaro’s Visa Problems

It has been reported from multiple sources that Ronald Belisario’s Visa problems were because of the real thing – Coke.  Dude should have switched to Pepsi – I knew that stuff was bad. Since he had a prior DUI arrest, I can only presume that he now prefers Jack and Coke. Look, the guy ain’t [...]

He is OhSoBeliSorryOh

Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times has just reported the Ronnie Belisario may not be allowed into the country (or maybe it’s that they won’t allow him out of Venezula) this year.  It sounds to me that it is likely some form of legal trouble, but I think we will find out soon enough.  In [...]

Who Stays, Who Goes?

Who Stays, Who Goes?

Think how different the Dodgers might have been this year without the contracts of Broxton and Sherrill. They could have afforded another big bat or top-of-the-rotation starter. I begged them to trade Brox for two years and Sherrill after last season. Some people think that I am just a “Broxton Hater” and that there is no way that I can tell he is not a guy who thrives under pressure, Think what you want – don’t judge me by what you can do – but I have been saying that Broxton chokes under pressure for three years and that the Dodgers should have traded him.
