Been a Dodger fan since birth in 1981. Waiting a long time for a WS Championship.
@YadierMolinasOedipalComplex I think i read two strikeouts were looking...I think that says something..That he's still trying to figure out his pitch zone but also he's not afraid to take or be patient

@Literally PFP @Ker$haw$Dodger$ only because Dodgers were relevant
@ABSmileBunch and he will form a 30-page report on the talent and limitations of Yasiel Puig
Whatever happens, all I know is that at 32 these are some of the best years i've had as a Dodger fan.... team is spending money on players, getting the best people to run the team, making the fan experience at the game better than it was...
I don't want it to end :)
@Dustin Nosler Do you think a better development system would have produced better results from recent drafts?
With all this talk about Friedman the last week, I'm thinking about how much this was the plan from the very beginning in 2012 when Kasten and Co bought the team.... I really think this was the plan all along, but there was an urgency to win at all costs to get fans back in the stands
@YadierMolinasOedipalComplex Maybe that helps
@YadierMolinasOedipalComplex I think I remember Colleti saying something about how the Kasten allows people to take more risks than they would before
@YadierMolinasOedipalComplex @Lobo it could also be the case that the Dodgers development system is not as good as others in getting drafted players to perform to expectations

@YadierMolinasOedipalComplex @Lobo if you look at those teams that made those choices of good players in other years, you may see the same results...
@Diane Nguyen 9ers fan truth is Dodgers are drafting guys with pretty good ceilings (Seager, Pederson, Anderson, Holmes).who are highly thought of..whether they are being developed or allowed to play is another story
@Diane Nguyen 9ers fan I'm sure Baez, Garcia, Frias, etc could be worth something if they were allowed to pitch
@Aaron Harang's Soul Patch @Ker$haw$Dodger$ damn didn't know he's been there that long...but you're right though, seems like everything they do is more right than wrong
@Aaron Harang's Soul Patch @Ker$haw$Dodger$ so was Walt Jocketty whom I think was running things at the time,
@Diane Nguyen 9ers fan I actually disagree with the drafting part
It's crazy how one Draft year can really change the future of a team
Cardinals' 2009 draft class included S Miller, J Kelly, M Carpenter, M Adams, T Rosenthal
@foldamort personally I like the MLB model of no salary cap...let teams decide how and in what they want to spend their money on
@JackedNate @Ker$haw$Dodger$ they give a fuck, I'm 99% right about this
@CloudyWithaChanceofMeatblahs @Ker$haw$Dodger$ as long as they're with the program
I wonder how Gonzalez, Kemp, Ethier, Crawford, Hanley*, League, Wilson, Haren, will feel when they meet Friedman...after reading this:
'it's really important to do as much as you can to put yourself in position to pay for what a player will do, not necessarily what they have done."
@JackedNate @Ker$haw$Dodger$ @mostly exciting potato because facts are a thing here on DodgersDigest comment section

@mostly exciting potato @Ker$haw$Dodger$ I feel like i'm 99% probably right
The more I read about Friedman he seems like a guy that wants everyone to be a team player from the front office to the team itself... and if you're not on the same page, he'll pretty much convince you Intellectually and Logically to get with the program
So are we still in agreement with Drank that Dodger fans don't know anything and Logan White is worthless?
5 days, 2 hours ago on Dodgers introduce Andrew Friedman, questions about GM spot remain
I cherish Logan white and I am a dodger fan
1 week ago on Ned Colletti was a lame duck GM & Andrew Friedman now moves the Dodgers forward
That's pretty dumb it takes years to contribute...kemp was like 8 years before he actually contributed
Not sure if anyone has asked about this but What would a Friedman draft look like? Will there be conflict with Logan white in ultimately choosing players each round?
2 weeks ago on Cardinals 3, Dodgers 2: So That Happened, Again
At this point if Alex Gutierrez is not more valuable than justin turner, does he get traded?
Besides not playing Puig (maybe lower in lineup) another major mistake was not reviewing the pickoff play at first.. Kershaw had to throw more from the stretch
Dodgers giving everyone heart attacks these days
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Your ‘Dodgers win Game 2 of the NLDS’ GIF post
@Lobo does their time for tomorrow's game have to do with TBS having rights over MLB and Fox when it comes to Prime time?
@Nonexistant @Ker$haw$Dodger$ @moneynow27 an executed pitch can be the difference between a homerun/double and a weak grounder or swinging strike
@Nonexistant @moneynow27 @LA_Woman @Lobo Either way...if you look at those hits, Dodger pitchers missed their spots badly, based on where Ellis was expecting the pitch
pitch out please

I just think Kenley is using his cutter too much....guys are cheating on it
Angels bullpen 8th inning 7 batters faced no outs
according to GameDay, sinker, changeup, curve down the middle for that last strikeout!

@Chris Jackson with his stuff, do you expect more strikeouts?
@Chris Jackson @Ker$haw$Dodger$ @PagansOedipalComplex what about Tim Hudson-lite?
@Technogit all i remember is Kasten saying it's the first time they sold 3million tix before season started
@Noel D @Technogit I heard 36-38K this year
@Chris Jackson @Ker$haw$Dodger$ @PagansOedipalComplex whou would you compare him to?
@Chris Jackson @Ker$haw$Dodger$ @PagansOedipalComplex since many scouts don't see him as a pure Ace, what is his true ceiling?
