That shot from home plate, with Jansen on the mound and Revere at second reminded me of the 'forced perspective' technique for making Elijah Wood look like a hobbit next to Ian McKellan.

@BlueMarvin We're not too bad off with:


Gordon, Puig, Ramirez, Gonzalez, Kemp, Uribe, Ethier, Ellis, Kershaw


And I think that's a more realistic expectation for this season.

...and what about his skin pigment? Should I be wary of his enjoyment of the game being suggestive of his a predilection towards sullying the proper way to play the game and showing a true respect for those pioneers from whom we received the game and all of the pre-integration traditions that rightfully belong in the game?

2 days, 8 hours ago on Dodgers 4, D’Backs 1: Puig and Some Other Stuff

Reply

@Catfishin @ABSmileBunch  yeah...and last year the talk was all about how Harper's 'intense' style of play led to a bad injury when he slammed into the wall. Different play, but give me a break, the guy's an amazing player, it would be nice to see him on the field more.

So, did we discuss Bryce Harper getting the Puig treatment today?

@Barney G @ABSmileBunch I'd rather they just let Puig and Kemp go, rotate the other guys, with occasional days off for Puig/Kemp rather than trying to balance it out across 4 guys.

Without looking it up, Donnie's response to having all 4 high paid OF's healthy seems to have resembled something like each guy 'plays 3 days, rests 1' with the occasional SVS start against Wade Miley. My guess is that he's sitting Puig because it's his turn to sit (at least according to Donnie logic)...If this is the pattern, it's going to get old really quickly.

@Pie Fucker @ABSmileBunchPaco hasn't pitched yet in ABQ, so he's been more or less rested since being sent down (intentionally or not I don't know)...also, it's not as if the minor league affiliates have free reign to use pitchers however they please to win games, the MLB club has a lot of say in how and when prospects are used, or Major league players are used in rehab assignments, whey not dictate some regular work for paco to keep him fresh, but also reduce the overall stress on his arm. 

It's offensive that they signed League to that deal, but so what, I'm speculating about something that I ultimately have no control over, but why can't we take an innovative idea from a lesser organization and suggest it might enable the Dodgers to manage bullpen usage and functionally increase the number and quality of the arms contributing at the big league level in an area where they actually do have some flexibility to experiment/find even slight advantages over their competition.

@Pie Fucker @ABSmileBunch...and, right now Kershaw is on the DL, so the dodgers pen is getting a lot of work right now...It would be great if the contract situation of a player had no bearing on his playing time, but it does, so for now, we put up with league and Perez and hope that they don't hurt us too badly.

@Pie Fucker @ABSmileBunchno, but I don't see why it's so offensive to consider ways to keep the pitching staff rested...wehther we're the Dodgers or the Royals.

Reply

@Pie Fucker @ABSmileBunchOh, I get it, but considering that he's under contract, they apparently aren't quite ready to cut him loose...and given those circumstances, a rotation of paco and withrow could help save the bullpen from overwork. 


Also, is Maholm on a ML contract? Could he be sent down and someone like Lee brought up for a couple of starts?

Did someone here say that rex hudler and Steve visioc (sp?) were with the Angels broadcast team not very long ago? Well, as I watch the royals game on TV right now and I have to listen to Rex Hudler, or when I have to listen to visioc on the radio...I feel really glad that the Dodgers broadcast doesn't include them. 


Also, Hudler made a reference to Jackie Robinson the other day when on the air, he said something like 'What he did for his kind, was just great'...needless to say, it caused a bit of a backlash. He dumb.

@Purple Drank @ABSmileBunchIt was after I noticed that Addison Reed looked like Joffrey from Game of Thrones (I don't know if you get the reference or not).

@Pie Fucker A couple of years ago, the Royals essentially included pitchers from AAA who are on their 40 man roster as part of a regular rotation in and out of the big league bullpen...I don't see why guys like paco and withrow can't be rotated back and forth until there's an injury...it adds depth to the 'pen. The dodgers are in a bit different situation since they have less slots that can rotate back and forth (the royals seemed to have all their bullpen arms going back and forth), but it could work in a limited sense and the pitcher going to AAA shouldn't be thought of as underperforming, only getting a break so that overall the BP can stay fresh.
