Surprised they didn't go to second with AJ running, if you call that running.

@Mike Petriello @Scroogie I hear you.  But then again, I think Hanley Ramirez is really not a shortstop either, but we put up with him there because of his bat.   And even though Guerrero projects as a 2B/LF, we need a shortstop now and he has a great deal of experience at the position.  I think he'd produce over replacement level factoring his bat against his subpar defense, while Rojas and Barney are just negatives.  


But what do I know.  I'm sure the higher-ups know more about the situation obviously and it's Barney and Rojas.

I think the Dodger brass have soured on Arby, at least for this year.  So Barney is called up and it looks like either he or Rojas (or both) will be the shortstop.  I'm surprised Alex Guerrero wasn't called up.  I sure hope he's getting time in at short @ AAA.  Guerrero might not be a great defensive shortstop (or so I've heard) but he's gotta be better at defense than Hanley Ramirez and it's a given he has a much better bat than the two we have now.


I wonder what the wait is on Guerrero?  Health?

@JackedNate @Scroogie I would assume so. 

1 month, 3 weeks ago on Dodgers Acquire Darwin Barney, Because Defense

Reply

The Barney move signals a loss of faith in Arruebarrena, at least for the remainder of this year.  With the brawl and maybe stuff we're not privy to, the Dodger brass probably thinks he's immature or even possibly a head case.  


Plus running from a fight is bad for team chemistry --- :D

Wow.  I can't believe Scott "couldn't get an at bat in the playoffs" Van Slyke is not only starting, but is also batting ahead of Uribe and Ethier.

I guess SVS has moved up on Mattingly's list... if in fact DM makes lists.  Which I doubt.

6 months ago on Reminder: Second Basemen Bat Second

Reply

I've been following the Dodgers since the late 70s, and Hanley Ramirez is the most dominating Dodger hitter I've seen during that time.  Pedro Guerrero? Mike Piazza?  Gary Sheffield? Hanley Ramirez is a level above.   And he plays freakin' shortstop.

Probably next year will be his last with the Dodgers, but it was a pleasure watching him.
