My petty post for the year

Disclaimer: If you don’t care or don’t want to read about stupid, childish men getting catty over the Internetz — you know, like a normal human being wouldn’t care — then click out of this article. Seriously. It’s really dumb. —– So yesterday, I wrote a Michael Young post basically saying that the Dodgers shouldn’t expect much, I didn’t see ... Read More »

Yasiel Puig was called up for one reason and one reason only

To reenact the scene where Mo Vaughn tackles George Bell to protect Aaron Sele. Seriously though, apparently something like this is likely to happen, but should it? While I understand the emotions as much as anybody, the Dodgers will unfairly never get actual retribution for Carlos Quentin being an idiot, and getting Stephen Fife ejected in the first inning is ...

Dodgers react to Greinke injury + brawl, Quentin continues to be dumb, mirrors Padres fans

So in case you were under a rock yesterday, Zack Greinke has a broken collarbone and is out for a while, essentially because Carlos Quentin is an idiot. As one would imagine, the reactions to what went down from the Dodgers dugout, media, and bloggers weren’t the most pleasant towards Quentin. ===== Don Mattingly called him an idiot and said ...

Around The Web: Andre Ethier Extension Reaction

AndreEthierBall

Mike Scioscia’s Tragic Illness: Mike Petriello once feared the exact deal that Andre Ethier signed, and while he holds some concerns, he finds it hard to argue against the deal. What interests me more right now is trying to figure out just how much a big 2012 could enhance Ethier’s value on the market, because there’s a big difference between ... Read More »

Hank Schulman Says Dodgers Fans Are The Worst In Baseball + Is Delusional

HankSchulmanEating

Hank Schulman went insane yesterday, translating a sequence of events and reactions from the Dodgers/Giants game in the most illogical way possible, basically so that they would fit his narrative. Many fans here booed when Kemp misplayed Melky ball, didn’t reach Arias RBI single.If that’s what they were booing, they’re total idiots. — Henry Schulman (@hankschulman) May 8, 2012 Honestly, ...

Around The Web: Paying To Watch The Dodgers, Winning & Perspective, Coaches Behaving Badly

Dodger Thoughts: Jon Weisman asks how much you would pay to watch the Dodgers. I think it’s a great question. Personally, I answered: $1, $5, $10, $500. —– Baseball Prospectus: Dash Treyhorn analyzes how the perception of Charlie Manuel has evolved, primarily due to winning. Sometimes I wonder if the same would be possible with Ned Colletti. We’ve already seen ... Read More »

Around The Web: Epic Guerra & Loney, Dodgers Out Of Options, and Worst Swings Of 2011

TotoAfrica

MSTI: I don’t know where he found this, but this is definitely the best thing Javy Guerra and James Loney do all year even if they finish 1/2 in the MVP race. Dodger Thoughts: None of the potential Dodgers ownership groups liked the Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw contracts? Uh…yikes. Feelin’ Kinda Blue: Jon Weisman blogger profile. —– Baseball Prospectus: ... Read More »

Dodgers Never Made A Formal Offer To Hiroki Kuroda, So Is He Still A Ho?

HirokiKurodaLeaves

While I defended Hiroki Kuroda‘s choice to sign with the New York Yankees even if it was simply a financial decision (much like Jon Weisman and Mike Petriello did), his detractors look even stupider today after it was revealed that he wasn’t even given an offer by the Los Angeles Dodgers. Hiroki Kuroda confirmed what Dodgers General Manager Ned Colletti ... Read More »

Is Criticism Of Hiroki Kuroda Actually Happening?

HirokiKurodaSIR

Is this real life? I honestly didn’t know this was a thing outside of a few Twitter re-tweets from Tony Jackson of ESPN Los Angeles. As usual, Jon Weisman from Dodger Thoughts was on point talking about Los Angeles Dodgers fans criticizing Hiroki Kuroda for his decision to sign with the New York Yankees. This is a pretty bizarre loyalty ... Read More »
