Let’s Throw Out The Baby With The Bathwater

May 12, 2018

When the Giants won the World Series three out of five years, does anyone remember what happened in between?  What is of interest to me is that after winning the World Series in 2012, in 2013 the Giants were ten games under .500 the next year – 10 GAMES!  Then, the very next year, they won the World Series again. Just because some moron says the Dodgers don’t have depth,…

There Are No More Excuses For Anyone!

May 9, 2018

… and that includes Dave Roberts. Last night was a classic example of what is wrong with the Dodgers.  Trailing all of the game, in ther bottom of the 9th inning, the Dodgers Kike Hernandez homers off a RH pitcher (Write that down, Doc-a RH pitcher) to tie the game.  Chris Taylor quickly strikes out and Alex “I am screaming to be sent back to AAA” Verdugo meekly grounds out. …

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…

A Confederacy of Dunces

May 6, 2018

In 1980 a book by that title was released eleven years after the authors suicide, no doubt caused by the premise of the book, which is both depressing and true.  The author John Kennedy Toole, was awarded a posthumous Pulitzer Price. The premise of the book is that “When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.”…

What Happens After Corey Seager?

May 2, 2018

  What do the Dodgers do now? Personnel wise – NOTHING .  FAZ needs rely on what they have developed.  They have shortstops that can play at the ML level, although certainly not at the Corey Seager level.  Other than Francisco Lindor or Carlos Correa, there is no other comparable SS. There is absolutely no reason to make a trade for a rental like Manny Machado. But let’s be realistic….

You Are What Your Record Says You Are

May 1, 2018

The Dodgers are currently 12-16 and have a losing record at home and on the road.  There record says they are a sub .500 team and their record is accurate.  It’s a new month and they better develop a sense of urgency, or the wheels may fall off this thing and they could become sellers at the trade deadline.  Personally, I believe that that have too much talent and depth,…

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…

It’s Deja Vu All Over Again…

April 25, 2018

On April 25, 2017. The Los Angeles Dodgers had 10 wins and 11 losses and Dodger fans were talking crazy: Here’s one: Watching the Dodger hitters ineptitude last night was frustrating. It seems to me (bright baseball minds on this sight can provide the stats that say yea or ney) that the inability to hit LH pitching or with RISP goes hand in hand with games like last night where…

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…

What Will FAZ Do???

April 16, 2018

This will be somewhat unusual for me, as generally I am an extremely unapologetic pro-FAZ supporter, and I still am.  But to critically examine any operation, personal biases need to be thrown out, even when it comes to the Dodgers.   Sports team owners do not get into the game for short term profits.  The big profits come when the team is sold.  For the Dodgers, the ownership group has…
