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......
12 hours, 35 minutes ago on Down On The Farm: 7/21 – 7/27 – Pederson, Seager, Urias, FedEx, Yimi
Wow....Both Vin and Matt returned last night! It doesn't get any better than that!
21 hours, 8 minutes ago on Dodgers 8, Braves 4: Four In A Row
Kemp, Puig, Seager, Pederson, and Urias have all been pulled from their lineups and asked to go home until further notice......Ned has a big deal in the works.....Rod Barajas? Matt Guerrier? who knows?

Kemp pulled from tonight's lineup?
@steelmohawk @PagansOedipalComplex @moneynow27 @Mike Petriello @deblue
I was a little too tall, could've used a few pounds.....
@Mike Petriello @deblue
That what the Red Sox thought also......
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....

@Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year)
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.....
Mike, they're all spoiled....but we love you.....
What? And Chris Perez lives another day....

You like what?
@Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year) @moneynow27
No way, not both of them, right?
So....who is being dangled?
And I would assume we have that in common....
@Uncultured Baby @CaseyTheDeliMan1
And Alec Baldwin actually said that!
I did....BTW, how did you come up with the name DeliMan?
Have not, but would like to.....Saw Jersey Boys on Broadway, would like to see the movie....
@Disgruntled Goat @moneynow27 @TellMyWifeISaidHello
1992.....It seems like only yesterday.....
@Disgruntled Goat @TellMyWifeISaidHello @moneynow27
You saw the movie as well.....Jack Lemmon was amazing....
Repost? Kershaw is the best ever....
Rent it and let me know what you think.....You can stream it on Netflix.
Yay, someone else saw the movie!
Ok, I'll go off topic too......One of the best movies of all time in my opinion is.....Glengarry Glen Ross
@Lance Uppercut @moneynow27
Lance.....Kemp was out most of last year, and we won the division......there's your answer.....
Exactly TMWISH, which is one of the reasons I started that thread!
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!!

Baseball players are not chips.
2 days, 13 hours ago on Dodgers Acquire Darwin Barney, Because Defense
@Mike Petriello @moneynow27
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.

This would be an appropriate time to mention that my wife is Jenna Dewan's cousin.
2 days, 14 hours ago on Dodgers Acquire Darwin Barney, Because Defense
No....Ethier and Crawford......I like Kemp.
Kemp has already been traded 5 times in the past 24 hours.
@Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year) @Iron Brian @pete33081
To all baseball media writers.....please stop using the terms "trading chips" and "pieces" when referring to players. Baseball players are not inanimate objects.......lol
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?

@potato (2014 MSTY: Newcomer of the Year) @moneynow27
I'll take Bastardo, rather than Papelbon.
I hope you're right Mike.....You did say Papelbon, future Dodger......
So he trades Crawford or Kemp, and gets Hamels. How in the hell does this help our biggest need, the bullpen?
No, but I do know some Japanese words....
2 days, 16 hours ago on Matt Kemp Is More Valuable In The Dodger Lineup Than Elsewhere
Daniel.......back from Boston/Maine.....dinner in the North End, little Italy, great weather in Boston, lobster in Maine, wine and bread on Cadillac mountain, all good......Hope you're well......Dodgers are making their move now!
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.
Uggla and Peavy were clearly desperate moves.
No, because it's actually a low risk deal, with good infield back up.
Darwin Barney used to be a good infielder with upside for the Cubs.....then he was released.....This is Ned being Ned.
