NL West First Look – Colorado Rockies

March 16, 2019

Less than two weeks to go before Opening Day, and I still have one more team to give my best shot an analyzing for the upcoming 2019 season. Today I am taking a look at what should be the Dodgers closest competition (only competition?) in the NL West…Colorado Rockies. Last year, after 162 games, they tied our Los Angeles Dodgers with a 91-61 record, tops in the NL West. They…

Potpourri for $1,000 Alex

February 2, 2019

As we are winding down to less than 2 weeks before pitchers and catchers report, I was having a tough time trying to find a single topic to write a novel on.  So I am going to just give some of my thoughts on a few topics. 1. Yes, Stan Kasten stuck his massive foot square in his mouth at the FanFest, and for no good reason.  I am by…

Dodgers vs Rockies as of 01-04-19

Nine to Go

October 6, 2018

Continued and persistent rumors of the demise of Clayton Kershaw seem to have been greatly exaggerated. Is this the game where Clayton may have actually recognized that he is no longer the early version of himself, and now must become a finesse pitcher?  There is nothing wrong with being a finesse pitcher, but it just may not sit with him very well.  In Game 2, he was extremely efficient.  He…

No Blame Here!!

September 22, 2018

I understand the frustration in losing last night to the Padres.  But I am not going to blame this on Doc or the lineup.  The two questions I did have before the game were Kike’ and Freese in the lineup and Bellinger not.  But Kike’ and Freese were fine last night and certainly not the problem.  Kemp has been getting key hits lately, so I am not going to blame…
