Sometimes you don’t have to say anything

When Kirk Gibson hit the HR in 88, Vin Scully was silent for quite some time. Last night’s win, needs no explanation. The results speak for themselves. One word: Junkyarddogism! Tony Jackson at www.Dodgerscribe.com is doing a great job!

Dodgerscribe.com

It is with great pleasure that I want to introduce you to a new Dodger website:  www.Dodgerscribe.com. This website is from my good friend Tony Jackson, who has been on sabbatical for a while.  I think it will be a good.. no, it will be a GREAT site.  Dig in and enjoy. This is probably [...]

Andre Ethier’s Blast Sinks Nats

When Bryce Harper  slid into 3B head first I yelled “He’s out!” while everyone around me was yelling “he’s safe.”  The Nats replay every good play on their marvelous scoreboard (best I have ever seen), so I said “If he’s safe, they will replay it.“  No replay – I just said “Scoreboard!“  My wife said [...]

A trip down memory lane…

Some of you are new to this site and don’t realize the history between a lot of us.  You have read my negativity on the Dodgers this year, but it is not usually like that.  I bleed Dodger Blue.  This is a painful year and I did predict it.  I hope  I am wrong and [...]

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 [...]

$216 Million Can Buy You Last Place

Yeah, but… injuries, disabled lists, blah-blah-blah… Save it.  It is what it is and it might change or might not. Boy, Carl Crawford must have it in for Chris Capuano.  Caps was already struggling when CC just kept pouring gas on the fire last night. I got a call from my old friend Tony Jackson [...]

Puig, Baez, Punto, Scully & Piazza

What Part of the Horse is He?

This is the third of a three-part series bashing Andre Ethier. Andre Ethier doesn’t like reporters.  You all know that.  Ray Charles can see that.  I know that.  I also have seen the disgust he displays towards them.  If you don’t already know, I don’t like fish hacks either, but Dylan Hernandez, Ken Gurnick and [...]

The Return of Dodger Baseball

The Return of Dodger Baseball

After the game, Matt Kemp said: “This is just the beginning.” Tony Jackson of ESPN/LosAngeles hit the nail on the head:  Davey Lopes is helping the Dodgers immensely, especially Matt Kemp.  After describing Matt Kemp who went from first to third on what might have ordinarily been a double play ball, Tony wrote this: “There [...]

Rant & Rave Saturday

Rant & Rave Saturday

Any Dodger discussion HAS to include the fact that Bud Selig allegedly denied Frank McCourt the opportunity to get a loan against future TV revenues.  Many people are jumping to the conclusion that this means Frank will have to sell the team, after all, he did the same thing to Tom Hicks and his team [...]

I Am Confident The Dodgers Will Win 81 Games

I Am Confident The Dodgers Will Win 81 Games

Any disagreement so far?  OK!  I know we have some common ground already.  I’m not saying that they won’t win more, but I tend to think that 81 is something that is very plausible.  I mean, they won 80 in 2010 when everything went wrong.  So, winning 81 really isn’t raising the bar much. However, [...]

Winter Meetings Heating Up

Winter Meetings Heating Up

I don’t understand why they didn’t have the Winter Meetings in Indianapolis again so I could easily attend.  What were they thinking?  It’s old news that the Dodgers are interested in the following players, although they presumably won’t sign them all: Russ Martin Vicente Padilla Matt Diaz Scott Podsednik An “Unnamed” LF Source: Tony Jackson [...]

Tony Jackson’s Take

Tony Jackson’s Take

Tony has an interesting perspective on the Dodgers.  Remember that he’s around Colletti, Mattingly and the Dodger brass everyday.   Here’s his take for the Dodger offseason: http://sports.espn.go.com/los-angeles/mlb/columns/story?id=5653412

It Is What It Is!

It Is What It Is!

Clayton Kershaw struggled all night with his mechanics and admitted he was “amped up” and could get his rhythm.  Blake DeWitt played 2B like he hadn’t played there much (he hasn’t) and the Dodger hitters were again horrid with RISP.  They were 2 for 15 and stranded 12 runners.  You simply can’t win doing that.

Who Is This Man?

Who Is This Man?

I took this photo six years ago at Vero Beach. Obviously, Tommy Lasorda is sitting in the golf cart signing a ball for a little kid, who happens to now be eleven.  I know that because he’s my kid. But who is the person in the golf cart beside Tommy? I had never thought about [...]

Whatever needs to be said about Chad has now been said by Tony, and it justneeds to play out.  In a nutshell, Tony summarizes Chad’s struggles like this: “Billingsley’s biggest problem, the one that has plagued [...]

Spring In The Air and In Your Step

Spring In The Air and In Your Step

Baseball seems to put Spring in your step when Spring is in the air.  It’s been a long, cold winter here – I usually enjoy the winter, but my surgeon told me that the first winter would be rough on my hip and it has been a bear.  Stiff, sore and constantly aware of it, [...]

Do We Really Need This?

Do We Really Need This?

Tony Jackson of ESPN.LosAngeles and Dylan Hernandez of the LA Times are both reporting of the Dodgers interest in several players for the 4th outfield spot.  I suppose  there are reasons to consider Gross, Anderson and maybe even Johnson, but Brian Giles?  He became irrelevant a couple of years ago.  The problem is that none [...]

All Eyes on McCourt

All Eyes on McCourt

Everyone is anticipating the May hearing scheduled for the purpose of determining the Dodger ownership. I happen to believe that there is at least a 50-50 chance there will be no hearing and that this issue will be resolved between the parties.
