We started LA Dodger Talk in 2001. This site is about giving another perspective outside of the average day-to-day reporting. We don't do game recaps or such things -- lots of sites do that well. I value sabermetrics, but don't think they are the "end-all-be-all.". This is where you should start your day as a Dodger Fan. Welcome! We'd like to hear your voice.

  1. Regardless of your political affiliation (no politics) we are indeed a great nation because of the sacrifice a soldier, sailor, airmen or coast guardsman made long ago and still today. My father served in the US Navy for twenty years (Korea and Vietnam) and my father-in-law served in the US Army (Korea) and today my son serves a submarine warfare officer and is a graduate of the US Naval Academy.

    I am grateful for not only their service and sacrifice, but that of all of the men and women who wore the uniform of our great military. God Bless America!

    Go Dodgers!!!!

  2. From Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address:
    .
    It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

    1. It would be my greatest wish that the United States never lose another human being to the horrors of war. Beat the swords into plowshares.

  3. Buehler a pure joy to watch right now. Effortless delivery with great stuff. If he keeps it up it’s an easy ROY.

  4. Thanks to all those who sacrificed so that we can all live safely in this great nation! If Roberts moves Muncy to second I could get on board with that.

    1. Dirk

      I would love that too!

      Therealten, I think playing Muncy at second, would be our best defensive line up.

      Because although Cody is our best centerfielder on the team, after Taylor, he is also a very good first baseman, that saves plenty of bad throws, from our other infielders.

      And when Cody does play center, we are putting to many players out of position, only to get Muncy’s bat, in the line up.

      And Forsythe is probably our weakest offensive player on this team, and we just can’t carry no bat at second this year, without Corey’s bat, in the last line up.

      Hopefully Muncy does play well enough at second, to keep his bat in the line up, while he is hitting with the power he has, lately.

  5. George Washington Read, US Calvary WW1. Trenches rendered their use of horses. Alice Rogers Read, A good Indian. Or so it says on her tombstone. (you know the saying “a good Indian is a dead Indian”) To me, granny and grampa. They’re who I tend to think mostly on this day. Sadly I have many to think about everyday.

  6. It’s all been said above, but once again to all the men and women who are serving or have served, thank you and God bless you .

  7. If this great nation never loses another life to the horrors of war, it may well be because we are sitting idle while the forces of evil destroys the freedom of others. My wish is we remain a force for good in this world, with much wisdom and humility.
