Different Perspectives

January 12, 2019

Editorial Note – This was written before the massive Russell Martin deal went down, and I did not want to consider this post to be like Kemp, Puig, Wood, and Farmer and just dump it.   The written word is a strange thing.  One reader will read comments one way and another reader another way, and yet the writer had a totally different reason for the comment. The most recent…

On My Soap Box

January 7, 2019

Because of the lack of player personnel movement, all of the national publications and national writers are creating the best of the remaining lists.  Where will the top 10 remaining free agents land?  How about where will the top 15 free agents and major trade personnel land?  They all have opinions, and some of them are well thought out.  However, while they have much better contacts, none of them no…

Bits and Bites

December 30, 2018

The off-season has definitely gotten slow. The transactions have come to a sudden halt during the Christmas season. The Dodgers have even been extremely slow in signing minor league free agents.  Other teams have made moves that appear to have strengthened them but not the Dodgers.   Well folks, it is time to look up some of those patience quotes. Some feel the Dodgers got snookered by the Reds. On the…

Rule 5 Draft Preview

November 11, 2018

I was going to write about who I thought the three top potential GM candidates might be…Josh Byrnes, Kim Ng, and Chaim Bloom. My money was on Chaim Bloom, Rays Senior VP Baseball Operations. For those who may want to know a little more about Chaim; https://www.mlb.com/rays/team/front-office/chaim-bloom. However, I nixed that idea because Andrew has come out and said that Farhan’s duties could be assumed by existing personnel; himself, Josh…

The Weird World of Baseball Stats

November 7, 2018

It is raining quite hard here today, so I am housebound and about to rant a bit.   I love baseball. I love the Dodgers. I am in love with minor league baseball. However, the game now frustrates me. Every little move on the field it seems is a pre-calculation (if that is a word), before something even happens. Dave Roberts is ready to come striding out briskly to take…

Boston Still Needs to Win One More

October 28, 2018

Did Alex Cora make a mistake by staying with ERod in the 6th? As a Dodger fan, I say absolutely not. A 3 run jack by Puig put the Dodgers up 4-0. And the Dodgers have not lost with a 4 run lead all year long. 54-0. But what will Boston fans say? Well now they could care less because of the lack of a bullpen by the Dodgers. And…

Game 2 – Let’s Get Even

October 24, 2018

This is what I was thinking as Game 1 approached.   The game we have been waiting for since November 1, 2017 and the opportunity to wipe away all the anguish of a 30-year drought. I have had a busy day and have discovered I am not as nervous about this series as I was the one with the Brew Crew. I don’t think it is because I feel the…

LA Dodgers vs. Boston Red Sox – 2018 World Series

October 22, 2018

WELCOME TO THE FALL CLASSIC 2018!! By the time the Dodgers and Red Sox square off in Game 1 of the 2018 World Series, it will have been 356 days since the Dodgers went down in Game 7 of the 2017 World Series.  It will be 30 year’s this month since the last Dodgers WS victory.  This year’s WS can make all of those bad memories go away (at least…

Farhan Was Right All Along

October 21, 2018

It took 174 games, but the Dodgers are heading back to the World Series. As I stated yesterday, it seems like this team needs to have their backs against the wall before they kick it in gear.  From the shouts that we are going to single them to death to come back to getting a 2 run HR and a 3 run HR to beat the Brewers in Game 7….

Tough To Watch

October 13, 2018

In a game where the two best hitters struck out 7 out of 10 plate appearances, this was a very hard game to watch much less write about.  Unfortunately for the good guys, JT’s strikeouts were much more problematic than Christian Yelich’s.  The Blue put up a good fight late, but Game 1 goes to Craig Counsell in his chess match against Dave Roberts.  It appears that Counsell played Roberts…
