What Comes Next For The Dodgers

June 9, 2018

  Editorial Note – I wrote this before the Buehler injury. The 2018 Amateur Draft is now over.  All that is left is the signing of the draft picks.  The Dodgers did not select a high school player in Round 11 indicating to me that they expect the top 10 to be close to the bonus pool + 5%.  There will be some savings with picks #9 and #10 as…

DODGERS ANNOUNCE SELECTIONS FROM THIRD DAY OF 2018 DRAFT LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Dodgers today announced their final 30 picks from the third day of the 2018 Draft.

Of the 21 drafted position players, 10 are right-handed hitters, 10 are left-handed hitters and one…

What To Expect in the Days Ahead

May 28, 2018

With the Amateur Baseball Draft coming up in the next couple of weeks, it’s generally assumed that not many other moves will be made by teams as their focus is on that draft… and that is generally true, but one never knows! There are many things to think about as a Dodger fan, however, including the Draft.  I see all kinds of predictions as to who the Dodgers might take,…

Here’s How I Would Fix the Dodgers

May 6, 2018

It’s time to see what Kike Hernandez can do as a regular – put him at 3B until JT comes back. Pederson goes to CF. Muncy and Valera go back to OKC. Too many weak bats. Hudson goes back to OKC and Cingrani goes on the DL. The team is under siege and decisive action is required. Things have to change and they have to change now! Puig will be…

Next Man Up! It’s That Simple

April 30, 2018

As if Dodger fans were not outraged enough by losing 3 out of 4 to the Giants and the team being three games under .500, today we find out that Corey Seager needs Tommy John Surgery.  Of course, over the past few days FAZ has been skewered for just about every imaginable and unimaginable mistake they have ever made – real or concocted.  Almost everyone is saying that the Dodgers…

What Do We Know? It Turns Out: Not a Damn Thing!

April 22, 2018

Many Dodger fans (including me) think Joc Pederson should be in Siberia or Tulsa or OKC.  But he started the scoring with a home run off of Stephen Strasburg. Joc was 2-4 last night. Many Dodgers fans have wanted Kike Hernandez banished, – especially because he can’t hit RHP.  But he hit another home run off Strasburg last night… and the last I checked Strasburg was RH. Imagine that! Many…

Stop the Insanity!

April 15, 2018

The fact that the Dodgers are 4-9 is not what bothers me. This stuff happens in baseball, but what bothers me is how this happens to a team that won 104 games last year and finished a game short of winning the World Series.  What bothers me is that the team went 52-8 and then lost 16 in a row.  How can that happen?  Why are they sooooo good and then…

What a Train Wreck!

April 12, 2018

It is rumored that the Phillies and Dodgers are in trade talks for their managers although the 6-5 Phillies are asking for a GM to be named later if they take the manager of the 4-7 train-wrecked Dodgers. Move along folks, there’s nothing to see here. Look, it’s simple!  I try to break it down to the simplest explanation.  The Dodgers only have four problems: (1) Can’t Hit; (2) Can’t…

Hurry Up and Calm Down!

April 5, 2018

On April 18, 2017, the Dodgers had 8 wins and 10 losses. They simply were not hitting, but I think it ended up OK (except for the very last game).  As a matter of fact, on May 3rd of 2017, the Dodgers were just one game above .500.  Should the Dodgers make a plethora of moves now and get rid of hitters not hitting and pitchers not hitting?  That’s silly…

This is Kenley Jansen

April 3, 2018

I would not have re-signed Kenley Jansen and I said so at the time.  It’s not that I don’t like him, but he is fully capable of blowing a game and he’s expensive. Let me remind you that the Astros won the World Series without a good dominant closer.  It surprised me that FAZ re-signed Kenley, but they did.  Maybe they HAD to re-sign him for the fans… who knows?…
