There comes a time when you realize that if you do what you have always done, you are going to get what you have always gotten. I may be crazy, but I am only slightly insane. So, I am starting up LA Dodger Talk again after about a year absence… but this time it will be under different rules.I am all for spirited discussions and disagreements… especially when you can frame and articulate your argument. Life would be boring if everyone thought the same things. However, some people have an “end game” in that you can generally predict that what they say will always be negative. Maybe someone crapped in your Wheaties – but when every comment you make is negative and you utilize every opportunity to say the same thing… over-and-over, well I just won’t tolerate that.Some aren’t welcome here. You know who you are. Go wallow in your misery somewhere else. I don’t enjoy miserable company and these are my rules. You can disagree with me and even say that what I wrote is “dumb.” I do write some “dumb” stuff – most of it on purpose to spur discourse. I will stir the pot and you are welcome to so as well, but when everything you write is bitching about Friedman and Zaidi (FAZ), well that is just plain stupid and I do not tolerate fools here.FAZ has made some good moves and some bad moves, but overall, the organization is in great shape. The Dodger Top 1-20 Prospects are as good as some teams Top 10 prospects. The future is bright and that includes 2017 where the Dodgers are already one of the top teams in baseball. Of course, they want to get better.This is not a site for Grumpy Old Men or for people who think misery loves company – be miserable somewhere else. This is a board where we treat each other with respect and have a take, but we do not suck. I look forward to hearing what you have to say and maybe even have someone who wants to write for the site do so as well.Maybe no one will come… that’s always a risk. I guess we will find out. I will have nothing further to say about anyone or any other sites. That is all for now. Go Dodgers! Politics are also strictly off limits. Period!P.S. This site is a work in progress. It might take me a month to finish it, but it will be functional in the interim.
