Been a Dodger fan since birth in 1981. Waiting a long time for a WS Championship.
@Batted Bob @Ker$haw$Dodger$ Makes sense... so it would be wise for teams to have more Cuban scouts as more talent is extracted out
2 months ago on 2014 Dodgers In Review: Benchwarmer Yasiel Puig
@Whose on First
@Batted Bob @Ker$haw$Dodger$ So he would be a big part of the thought process?
So does Logan White get all the credit for Puig and Urias.... was there others who influenced these signings?
@PagansOedipalComplex @Ker$haw$Dodger$ I agree especially if the trend is that he is chasing less and taking more walks....then he's swinging hard at balls in the zone
So his babip in 2014 was .356.... is this still considered high for any player? or is this about the norm for the time of player Puig is?
Mike or Chad... any predictions on what his numbers will be for 2015? I have a feeling this will be an MVP year considering guys batting in front of him.... which will give us the RBI and clutch narrative
@internet baseball fan potato friend @Ker$haw$Dodger$ and World Series MVP runner up to Hunter Pence
2 months, 2 weeks ago on Winter Meetings Day Two: Matt Kemp Getting Closer To Not Being A Dodger
@internet baseball fan potato friend @Ker$haw$Dodger$ probably and hopefully from Giants
@internet baseball fan potato friend I would take Shields for three years $45 million
I like how Cubs had to pay about $15-20 Million more than they probably had to thanks to the Dodgers saying "We want in on this guy"
@DroogyDodger Unless!!! Matt Kemp for Addison Russel plus pitching prospect and cash!! #sources
@SkepticNinja Friedman says that's bad business and I believe and trust in him
@Drywall @Ker$haw$Dodger$ Hoping they go all in for Scherzer now
Lester to Cubs takes out one potential trade partner with Phillies for Hamel... plus Giants don't have prospects for Hamels or those Phillies might like
Sources: Lester not going to Giants, Red Sox or Dodgers... going to Cubs!
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Ker$haw$Dodger$ being able to strike out over 14 per 9 and having a 46% GB and low BB% seems elite to me...plus he's left handed
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Andrew Miller wants 4 years from Dodgers, giving reason to worry
I know that giving four years to any relief is probably the biggest risk in baseball today....but to me giving a fourth year to Miller might be worth the risk if he can have two elite years....After two years, there will be no League, Wilson, Haren to drag down the bullpen
@MajorPuigBaseball @Ker$haw$Dodger$ @TellMyWifeISaidHello @Purple Drank so the question becomes, is it worth overpaying for a 1WAR to 1.5WAR or risking using subWAR players on a daily basis?
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Ker$haw$Dodger$ @Purple Drank No, but if Miller can perform to say a 1.0 to 1.5 WAR that would in my mind be worth about $15 million per year
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Ker$haw$Dodger$ @Purple Drank If you mention those players, they were still pretty effective compared to other pitchers on list
@Royale With Cheese (PF Flyers) @Ker$haw$Dodger$ http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=all&stats=rel&lg=all&qual=y&type=8&season=2014&month=0&season1=2014&ind=0&team=0&rost=0&age=0&filter=&players=0
@Royale With Cheese (PF Flyers) @Ker$haw$Dodger$ fangraphs WAR by reliever
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Ker$haw$Dodger$ @Purple Drank which of those pitchers is a hard throwing lefty or was for that matter?
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @Ker$haw$Dodger$ @Purple Drank comparing him to who?
@Purple Drank @Ker$haw$Dodger$ based on the charts in this article... $5 million is worth 0.4 WAR ... so if he is a 4.0 WAR player after two years..he'd pretty much be worth the contract
If Kenley Jansen is about to earn about $7 to $8 million in arbitration alone, why is it so concerning that Andrew Miller earn $10-12million? only ten players in MLB had a 2.0 WAR or higher Both in top 10
So after pausing for concern, should I still be giddy about the possibility of Dodgers signing Andrew Miller?
High leverage pitching during 2013 full season was pretty good for Nicasio as well
3 months ago on Juan Nicasio, Fascinating Relief Project
In his lone full season, Nicasio had 31 starts yet only pitched 157 innings... was this due to the Rockies 5 inning limit experiment?
Anyone wanna discuss the growing legend that is Clayton Kershaw?
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Clayton Kershaw’s MVP Tiebreaker
Anyone wanna talk about possible trade destinations for Matt Kemp or Yasiel Puig?
Anyone here in DoDi wanna talk new Dodgers Front Office?
Just read this article....Good read @DBrim
In my biased opinion, you could argue that Kershaw's defense behind him wasn't all that great outside of AGon and Uribe...Think about how much betters his numbers would play say if he was playing with a defense like KC
haven't read any comments on this yet
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Hanley Ramirez Declines Qualifying Offer, Obviously
Could the Mets have gotten Cuddyer as a preemptive move to get Tulo? Essentially making a first round pick as part of their deal
@Dodgers Nerd Probably by throwing in like $20-30 million
3 months, 2 weeks ago on Of Course The Dodgers Are Trying To Trade An Outfielder
@Mike Petriello I could see Detroit making a big splash with Hanley if VMart leaves
@DodgersFan @Mike Petriello @Dodgers Nerd maybe a better argument is Giants just won the World Series with Juan Perez and Ishikawa as their Left Fielders lol
@the great dick tater @Ker$haw$Dodger$ right but if a team comes to you and gives you players that can produce elsewhere for lower than the current cost, I think that's where the FO would make the changes
@the great dick tater the problem is you're expecting these players to be healthy at the end of the season again next year and for years to come
@SabrDodgers @Ker$haw$Dodger$ @Mike Petriello I just see that this year you won't be able to say "look at how our guy pitched out of the bullpen the last three weeks in the season, he deserves a three year $21 million dollar contract"
@Mike Petriello Do you think this offseason, free agents and their agents will change the way they deal with Dodgers because of the changes in the front office?
@Mike Petriello and panda beanies
@Mike Petriello Panda...just so teams can sell more jerseys
@HunterStricklandsOedipalComplex @Ker$haw$Dodger$ ok so you have two years to platoon or find comparable replacements for Kemp's production and after that you'll have more flexibility in the money you spend elsewhere
@HunterStricklandsOedipalComplex @Ker$haw$Dodger$ True..I just think the production you can get Puig, Pederson and others, you can get over what ever Kemp will do in the future and you will have better production in other areas (bullpen or infield)
@HunterStricklandsOedipalComplex @Ker$haw$Dodger$ I think it's a fair deal...Without Kemp stealing 20 a year, he won't be worth his contract
Kemp for SS Brad Miller and P James Paxton from the Mariners
Ethier for two low A Dominicans who just need to work out and get their nutrition straight who will be Projects for Gabe Kapler
