I am angry this morning about the Angels. First they try and take "L.A." from us , now this?!?
Back off Angel of Orange County by Disney land fans. I will let the opening day murder in the stands slide but continued violence in the parking lot is a Dodger tradition. Whats next? Vladdywood?
I think Pierre stays. I think the Dodgers are seriously concerned with Manny staying healthy. Lets not forget he had a hamstring issue early this year and he is 37. If Manny goes down Pierre is there (which is a lot better than plugging in Hoffman or someone else).
Pitching (starting or relief) is our priority. If the cost is reasonable why not grab an extra arm for the pen. With a staff that rarely sees the 7th inning I am sure theboys in the bullpen would appreciate the help.
Great win tonight. Kuroda did look fantastic. So did The Foundation!
BRuss, A solid starter would be awesome, but who (Hu) would be expendable? I would try and hold on to J Mac if it is at all possible at least into the offseason. I think he would be a great bullpen guy down the stretch. I have my doubts that Bell-a OH SORRY-o and Troncoso will last all season (ala Corey Wade). J Mac could be a money set up guy come September.
As for Manny I have to admit I saw the ABs tonight. It was good to see him again. Does anyone think theres a chance we have a let down when Manny comes back? That is my worst fear and why we must hold on to Pierre.
The only problem with saying Beltre wants to come back is that he still has the Dodgers on his list of teams he will NOT accept a trade to. It was all over the papers last year at the trade deadline. In fact I have heard his name linked to San Fran. That would suck.
I hope Bell has a bounce back year and from all acounts he looks pretty good. I think the Foundation can hold it down this year and next. 2011 it is DeWitt or Bell's turn to take over.
It is nice to see Beltre come around. I wish he would have shown some loyalty after we suffered through so many years with his struggles before he flourished. He had a decent offer from us and never gave the Dodgers a chance to match or beat it. That said, he had just seen the teams leader traded (LoDuca) a stand up guy like Dave Roberts tossed aside. He may not have liked the direction of the club...who knows. I really like what we have in Blake, he maybe a consilation prize but he is as solid as we have had in a while. Hey Mark, how far off is Josh Bell. That kid was something else when he played in San Bernardino. Could Blake be keeping Bell's spot warm?
You said it best Softier is at it again! Ethier is a scouts dream. He is fundamentally sound as anyone.
I will tell you this much I was wrong on Matt Kemp. This kid is great and is getting better! Wear me out on this one, I'll own it. Kemp has a ways to go but he is pretty darn good! Is that understated? :)
