The funniest thing about the JT, Puig and Ryu video last night in 3 languages, was that Ryu broke the news in Korean, then Puig in Spanish, and right after that before JT started to speak, half the stadium was already rejoicing over the news after having heard it from Puig......

Chris Perez, Paul Malholm, and Jamie Wright will all get full World Series shares this year.....meaning we're stuck with them forever....or at least until Colletti's ego gives in....

Chris Perez is well rested....which means Donny will use him in a high leverage situation.....They DFA'd Guerrier, I just don't know if Perez is related to Colletti's wife, or what the deal is.....

The Dodgers will win their division, with or without Matt Kemp, or anyone else Colletti decides to trade.  Before anyone screams, let me just say that I really like Kemp, I always have, and no, I don't want to see him traded.  But if the trade helps the Dodgers (acquire a Lester or similar), then why not?  I have no emotional attachment to any player.  I hated to see Piazza go, and I thought that was a stupid trade.  The Dodgers have not won a WS since 1988, and have not even been in a WS for years.  Kemp may have more value to the Dodgers than to the Red Sox or anyone else, but there's nothing we can do about what happens.  FWIW, I don't think he will be traded, but if he is, I'm still and will always be a Dodger fan.

Daniel Brim, you've written a very comprehensive, substantive article on Matt.  I appreciate the time you've taken from your busy day to share your thoughts....Having a full time job and writing blogs is not easy......  What you have written makes sense, although I'm not going to lie to you, I don't completely understand all of it, but I'm trying....  Thanks!!

Sabermetrics is a tough sell to a purist and a casual fan.  I'm both......as are the majority of baseball fans.

I love A.J.Ellis.  He's a great guy, good for our pitching staff, good player to have on the team.  I'd like him even more if he hit .250-.260 with 5-10 HR's.  Maybe the injury adversely effected his power numbers, who knows.

The Phillies are considering releasing Howard, or so it was written, so that would make sense.

When it comes to Pederson, Colletti is a joke.....He was interviewed and said Pederson knows he has to improve hitting LH's, and cut down on K's.......right, because we already have OF's who can't hit LH's, and K a lot.  But I agree, I guess I'm ok with 1.

If Colletti sends any combination package of Seager, Urias, and/or Pederson for Hamels (or anyone else, for that matter), then he's even less strategic than I thought...and I'm being kind.  Not all prospects succeed when they're traded, but have the Dodgers learned anything from the Konerko and Santana trades?

So he trades Crawford or Kemp, and gets Hamels.   How in the hell does this help our biggest need, the bullpen?

Barney plays SS and 2B, and I think this deal was done, maybe in case Ned thinks Arubbydoo is a loose cannon, or to give us more strength up the middle.
