What to Keep Your Eyes Out For This Spring

February 10, 2018

I am going to go out on a limb and make a few predictions as to what could or might happen during Spring Training.  Pitchers and Catchers are just hours away from reporting, so I am going to throw out a few things to look for. Watch Kiebert Ruiz.  You are going to be amazed at how good of a catcher he is and expecially his footwork behind the plate,…

MLB Has Some Big Problems

February 6, 2018

2017 marked the third consecutive season in which MLB attendance declined.  In fact, it went below 73 million for the first time since 2002.  You need to realize that attendance has declined for 5 out of the past 6 years (Maury Brown Forbes Magazine). It’s not huge, but it is a decline… almost half a million less in 2017 over 2016. Major league baseball attendance has declined 8.59% since 2000. …

Get Over Darvish and Get Used To Kemp!

February 3, 2018

Just Say No Yu The Dodgers Ace, Clayton Kershaw had a 4.02 ERA in the World Series and he’s a goat? The Astros Ace, Justin Verlander was awesome with a 3.75 ERA and he is amazing? Dallas Keuchel (the Astros #2) had a 5.32 ERA in the World Series. Yu Darvish ERA in the World Series? 21.60. Let’s sign him. Hell no! On the biggest stage in baseball, namely the…

Play that Funky Music (Mitch) White Boy

February 3, 2018

MLB.com listed some prospects who just missed the Top 100.  Among them were the Dodgers own Mitchell White.  They had this to say about him: Mitchell White, RHP, Dodgers White had Tommy John surgery after graduating from high school and didn’t start to take off until late in his redshirt sophomore season at Santa Clara in 2016, which is why he lasted 65 picks in the Draft that June. He…

It Turns Out That Borass Is The Devil

January 31, 2018

Scott Borass is all about Scott Borass.  He can say he is just looking after his client’s best interests, but in a free agent market, the top free agents “set the market” and Borass said his top three free agents were worth $200 million dollar contracts.  I drive a 2013 Ford F-150 which now has 94,000 miles on it.  I take good care of my vehicles and it still looks…

Getting Ready for Spring Training in Two Weeks

January 30, 2018

Here it is just about two weeks from players starting to report to Spring Training and they are getting the lockers ready at Camelback Ranch. The LA Beatwriters continue to sat that it is unlikely that Matt Kemp will be on the Opening Day Roster, but I happen to think Matt Kemp will be on the Opening Day Roster… unless: 1. He is physically unable to perform; 2. He is…

Do You Believe in Happy Endings?

January 28, 2018

Notice the resemblance? I think they look alike…  It’s the color of their eyes and their smiles! But, I digress! Once upon a time…. there was a young boy who played basketball and baseball in high school, but seemed to be destined to play in the NBA as he was a standout at basketball, winning two state championships in a row.  He was raised by his mother and grandmother who…

This is All Andrew Friedman’s Fault

… and Scott Boras is apt put out a hit on Andrew at any time. Andrew should consider getting Secret Service protection.  Currently, the Secret Service protects the most hated man in the America and Friedman is currently the most hated man among agents. What?  Who?  Why? The lack of movement in the Hot Stove League, especially among the upper-echelon free agents falls squarely at the feet of one Andrew…

GOAT: Kershaw or Koufax?

January 23, 2018

There are a lot of Dodger fans who regard me as a heretic when I try and say that Clayton Kershaw will go down in history as the LA Dodgers Greatest Of All Time as a pitcher.  But, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it! So, as we start, let’s get this over with: Career Records Sandy Koufax – 12 Seasons * 2,324 IP *2,396 K * 165 Wins…
