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 ...

Josh Beckett hopefully not fat: Dodgers Spring Training dates, daily schedules, home/away caps

The Dodgers pitchers and catchers report to Camelback Ranch today, on Feb. 12, which officially kicks off the baseball season for the team, and tomorrow, on Feb. 13, they’ll have their first workout, in which I like to imagine Aaron Harang lumbering through conditioning drills like a monkey.

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 ...

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, ...
