@InsideThePark that's almost a full home run trot. I'd probably guess Grandal, A-Gon, Ellis

@InsideThePark what's the distance?
10 hours, 22 minutes ago on Dodgers @ Padres April 25, 2015: Brandon McCarthy and strikeouts
@DBrim He does have the downside (compared to a standard 1 year contract) that if he turns into a pumpkin you don't get rid of him at the end of the season.
1 day, 21 hours ago on The Alex Guerrero Problem Is A Great Problem To Have
@Mike Petriello @jml2279 @moneynow27 ah, I guess I just assumed because Ned used an opt out in like every contract
@moneynow27 AG has an opt out this year, right?
@Mike Petriello Yeah, at least one ball I saw go through the gap yesterday that I thought Uribe would have had.
@Mike Petriello @Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) Which is scarier, Guerrero and Turner on the left side or Guerrero and Uribe on the left side?
@ABSmileBunch If you have an office large enough to have an HR department, bring it up to them. Their job is dealing with conflicts like this.

@Emergiq @Dustin Nosler Draft structures primarily exist to depress compensation of labor
@Dustin Nosler Presumably, the Union should get something out of such a concession. I think it depends on what they get out of the CBA
Man, that shouldn't count as an earned run
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Padres @ Dodgers April 7, 2015: The Real Start Of The Season
What's incredible to me is how frequently Dee ended up in that 0-2 hole. I'd love to see rate stats on that and see if that's just due to PA .
3 weeks, 1 day ago on How Dodgers’ hitters and pitchers fared ‘After 0-2′
@Mike-Lover Money and team morale. It let's them tell Stanton they're making a play to improve the team, but without actually increasing the payroll.
1 month, 1 week ago on Still Happy To Have Enrique Hernandez
Do we have a "swingman?" I wonder if Bedard sneaks onto the roster for this reason.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Quiet Camp Leads To Simple Opening Day Roster Projection
@TheOcelot @jml2279 @efb It hit leadoff most of last year
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Alex Guerrero more important now with Hector Olivera injury
@TheOcelot @jml2279 @efb These are questions I can't answer. My guess is that they want to give Ellis more ABs before they pull him. Can't imagine they want him to spend too many innings squatting this early.
@Mike Petriello @jml2279 I know we love utility guys but you do need 8 regulars. Is his bat not good enough (or doesn't project to be good enough) to stick everyday?
Are there any other 3B options in our minors system? Enrique Hernandez maybe?
@JFK03 @capnsparrow @jml2279 How is it arrogant, it's saying I will give you money to wait 5 months. If someone offered you 10% more pay 5 months from now wouldn't you consider it?
2 months ago on Dodgers miss out on Yoan Moncada, possibly to spend big on July 2
I wonder what the price would have needed to be to get him to wait until July
@just Paul @jml2279 A trade of a SP is possible, but the signing of Beachy seems to be a non-factor.
2 months ago on No, The Dodgers Aren’t Trading A Starting Pitcher
@just Paul @jml2279 Yeah, but health timelines don't generally get sped up by three months. Very different fact sets.
The Beachy timetable in no way makes sense for a trade of a front-line starter. Zaidi says he expects Beachy to be ready around the All-Star Break. You don't trade to make a 4 man rotation. Beachy seems to be insurance for the inevitable pitcher injury.
@Purple Drank I think a key difference between Bills and Beachy is that Bills (when he was signed) seemed to be on a time table to be ready around opening day and as such could demand a starter spot. Beachy isn't in the same position. He should be ready around the all-star break, and so no team can guarantee him a spot.
2 months ago on Dodgers Sign Brandon Beachy, A Risk Very Much Worth Taking
@- Casey - Hopefully Don can get behind that idea, I'm concerned it will be a job to be won in Spring Training

@DodgerDodger @jml2279 True revenue sharing between teams, if financial parity is the actual goal.
2 months, 1 week ago on 2015 Dodgers prospects: Best Tools
@DodgerDodger @jml2279 There are other ways to correct for imbalances in teams accounts. Drafts primarily serve as a way of depressing wages by removing bargaining power from labor.
@DodgerDodger no, just abolish the draft and allow the market to determine how teams sign players.
So that's why he hasn't been traded

@Batted Bob Just Seager? In a heartbeat
@Batted Bob @jml2279 Could very well see the Nats trading him after the Scherzer deal
@Batted Bob Strasburg
I'm always super impressed by the depth of Dutin's knowledge. It's one thing to know the AAA and the important AA prospects, but to know the Quakes and Loons? Amazing
3 months ago on 2015 Dodgers Top 100 Prospects: Introduction
My concern is that he's drawing such a high O-Swing because the scouting report is telling batters to swing away because he's not a very good pitcher.

I assume that if Kershaw and AJ get drinks, Kershaw pays
3 months, 1 week ago on The Right Nerds Want The Right Yoan
Do you think the fact that they want to clear out League means that they don't believe that his second half numbers are for real? The guy induces a lot of ground balls and that should play a lot better with our new defense up the middle.
4 months ago on Look How Different The Dodgers Roster Is Now
@DBrim @Lobo another starter has to be a guy with options right? No way anyone of quality is going to sign a deal and willingly start in the minors
4 months, 1 week ago on Dodgers DFA Brian Wilson, make Brandon McCarthy official
@capnsparrow I think they keep League (assuming that's who you're referring to), guy gets a lot of grounders and should look a lot better with Rollins and Kendrick scooping them up
@Disgruntled Goat I'm honestly amazed that a human umpire can even come close to calling the game correctly
4 months, 1 week ago on Yasmani Grandal could make trading Matt Kemp palatable
@Mike Petriello @DKD I agree with everything but the irrational. AJ has done much to earn our love.
@Technogit I think Kemp is in SD because advanced metrics hate him on defense and we don't have a DH spot. I'm actually surprised there wasn't more interest from AL clubs.
