That’s more like it…

When your #3 and #4 hitters go 6 for 8, you generally have a pretty good chance of winning, especially if your starter and bullpen give up only two hits and you also happen to be playing a very bad team!  Sorry D-Bag fans, but you don’t have much this year.  Couldn’t happen to nicer [...]

Matt Garza anyone?

The Dodgers reportedly still have interest in Matt Garza of the Cubs.  The question is:  At what price?  Garza is a very good pitcher – some regard him as a #2 or #3.  With the Dodgers, he would probably be slotted at #4 right now.  A rotation of Kershaw, Greinke, Ryu, Garza and Nolasco would [...]

Everything from Kemp’s shoulder to Uribe’s behind

Kemp’s Shoulder On Matt Kemp’s AC joint pain, I can speak from experience.  It is one of the sharpest, searing pains you can ever have and it literally pops!  Kemp will likely not need the DL, but will have to miss a few games to  let it calm down after the steroid shot (Kemp is [...]

Andre Ethier – Trade Candidate?

In case you live on another planet and haven’t heard, the Dodgers have a guy who may be a pretty good player at AA by the name of Yasiel Puig.  I think it has been assumed by many Dodger fans that Andre Ethier would be the odd-man-out and he may be, but at what cost?  [...]

Worst Hitting Team in Baseball?

The Dodgers have been shutout 10 times!  If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you will get what you’ve always got.  Unless you are truly insane, you have to start by ditching the current hitting coach.  Maybe it’s not his fault entirely, but he’s not blameless.  It’s late in the year to do that, [...]

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 [...]

Would You…

Trade Zach Lee, Kyle Russell and Alex Castellanos for Matt Garza and Alfonzo Soriano? Trade Zach Lee, Chris Capuano and Alex Castellanos for Cole Hamels? Trade Zach Lee, Alex Castellanos  and James Loney for Justin Morneau? Trade Zach Lee, Alex Castellanos, Juan Rivera and Shawn Tolleson for Chase Headley and Carlos Quentin? What say you? [...]

Play Me Or Trade Me

Players that teams wait on year-after-year to reach their potential, seldom do.  That’s a sweeping statement and I don’t have time to do the scientific research, but it seems about right to me.  It seems like players with “potential unrealized” frequently achieve that potential with a different team than the one they start with.  It [...]

The Abreu Deal Could Be the Norm

I don’t want to rain on the parade of Dodger fans who believe that Stan Kasten will come into LA and give Ned Colletti the authority and open pocketbook to trade for some bats that the Dodgers need.  It’s not that Guggs and Company doesn’t have the money – they do.  It’s just that throwing [...]

The Zach Lee Interview

Before we get to the interview, let me bring up a few things that are on my mind. The PCL Factor:  Travyon Robinson hit 32 HR in about 1,100 AB’s at Inland Empire which is known as a “hitter’s league.”  Then, last season he hit 9 HR at Chattanooga (523 AB’s) which is a “pitcher’s league.”  [...]

Musings From The Fort

Raffy is gone to the Cardinals for Alex Castellanos, who despite good numbers in AA, is not considered by most to be a major league caliber player.  He’s not yet twenty-five, but has a long swing to go with good speed, good power and a good arm.  He was not among the Cardinals Top 3o [...]

Logan White Interview – Part 4

OK, you asked for it! I have been making you wait for it. You think I was bad in dissing Jon Broxton in front of Logan? Well, Jared disses Logan White by telling him that Zach Lee was a bad pick. Watch Logan jump over the table and pound Jared….

I Told You It Was Bad…

I Told You It Was Bad…

According to multiple sources, Vicente Padilla will have surgery to repair a nerve/muscle problem in his arm.  He could miss the whole season, or not.  However, he can’t be included in the Dodger’s plans this season.  Padilla was a key part of the pitching staff, so we can’t minimize his loss. So, now it on [...]

McCourt Bashers Are Never Wrong

McCourt Bashers Are Never Wrong

They didn’t draft Lee because they wanted good PR – they drafted Lee because he was a Top 10 talent who they could get at #28 in the draft. That was a smart move, not a PR move. Get 20 good knowledgeable baseball fans in a room and spin that story on them and they will laugh you out of the room!

Dodgers Sign Zach Lee

Dodgers Sign Zach Lee

Evidently the Dodgers just signed Zach Lee for $5.25 mil according to multiple sources. To show you what they thought of Zach Lee, they paid Clayton Kershaw $2.7 mil. I guess that makes all the morons who thought the Dodgers didn’t sign Hudson and Wolf because they didn’t want to pay draft picks, look like… [...]
