Click To Enlarge

That comment on Dodger Thoughts from Terry Pruett on the ownership situation basically sums up exactly what I feel about the recent controversy. I must be the only one who couldn’t care less whether the Dodgers owners reveal their whole involvement with McCourt. — Chad Moriyama (@ChadMoriyama) May 16, 2012 Far more concerned with the trading deadline, what the front ...

What’s Behind Allen Webster’s Struggles?

AllenWebsterPP

Allen Webster had a rough final three starts for the Chattanooga Lookouts in 2011. Some attributed it to fatigue because of a career-high in innings pitched (145), but when the 2012 season began, things were supposed to be back to normal. Not so fast. —– Webster has struggled mightily this season — and it’s both concerning and perplexing. Mike Newman ... Read More »

Down On The Farm: Week Of May 7th – Savage, Solano, Landry, Dickson

OKoyeaDickson

It was a mediocre week for three of the four Dodgers minor-league affiliates, but the Albuquerque Isotopes had smooth sailing. Elsewhere, O’Koyea Dickson has been on fire since making his season debut more than a week ago. Albuquerque tied with Rancho Cucamonga in giving up the fewest runs, but the ‘Topes did it in seven games while the Quakes did ... Read More »

Why Does Don Mattingly Think He Can’t Demote Dee Gordon From The Top Of The Order?

DeeGordon

People are always asking me on Twitter whether Dee Gordon will be demoted. Demoted? Please. Don Mattingly won’t even budge on dropping him from the top spot in the lineup. For whatever reason, Mattingly absolutely refuses to consider dropping Gordon from the top, and judging by what he said to AJ Cassavell yesterday, it doesn’t seem like he’ll be changing ...

Dodgers Sign Miles (Yes, Really) + Hairston To The DL & Rivera To The Glue Factory

AaronMilesSIR

The Dodgers have … signed Aaron Miles … why? The Dodgers have signed free-agent infielder Aaron Miles and asked for unconditional release waivers on right-handed reliever Mike MacDougal, who was designated for assignment last Thursday when Ronald Belisario was activated. How does a player like Miles price himself out of the free agent market? How delusional was he, exactly? “Oh ... Read More »

The Loons are on fire, going 5-1 this week and taking top honors. They also have the week’s top pitcher in Jarret Martin. Surprisingly, the hitters stepped up this week, especially Scott Van Slyke, who helped the Isotopes put up 43 runs in seven games. The Loons allowed 21 runs, while Albuquerque checked in with 22 runs allowed. —– Albuquerque ... Read More »

Don Mattingly Regrets Nothing About His Bunting, I Regret Watching The Game

DonMattingly

I think Don Mattingly is probably the best manager the Dodgers have had since Tommy Lasorda, but his management of yesterday’s game against the Giants exposed what is probably his most glaring weakness. —– In the bottom of the seventh inning, with the Dodgers down one run, the team basically hit the lottery by somehow managing to get Juan Rivera ...

Scott Elbert & His Slider

ScottElbertPP

After posting a 2.43 ERA and 2.73 FIP in 33.1 innings out of the bullpen last year, it seemed as if former top prospect Scott Elbert had found his future in the bullpen. This year though, he has struggled, posting a 5.87 ERA and a 6.35 FIP. So what’s wrong? His slider, apparently. “I feel good,” Elbert said. “I’m pounding ... 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, ...
