@Purple Drank That's what he does with the bases empty. If there's a runner on 3B and less than two out, Slappy pops up.

@Vin_Skully It's a work in progress.

@ABSmileBunch We can eat a slightly higher percentage of Dre's contract in order for the BJs to include Cecil.
@ABSmileBunch @The Dude Abides I'm thinking Brett Cecil. 53 IP, 12.8 K/9, 4.5 BB/9, 2.70 ERA, 1.37 WHIP.
@ABSmileBunch But seriously, maybe they include a mid-level prospect in AA or high A.
@ABSmileBunch @The Dude Abides The two people who got caught shagging in that hotel room above center field.

Who says no? Dee and Ethier to Toronto for Mark Buehrle, who has 1yr/$20m remaining on his contract. Dodgers eat zero of Ethier's 2015 salary, and about 1/3 of his 2016 and 2017 salary.
@capnsparrow @The Dude Abides @Dustin Nosler Yeah...sigh. Fucking McCourt (who I still don't hate as much as Jim Buss).
1 week, 1 day ago on Dodgers introduce Andrew Friedman, questions about GM spot remain
@Dustin Nosler @The Dude Abides Logan is awesome. A couple big missteps (Adkins instead of Stanton, Reed instead of Gray), but everyone has them and his hands might have been tied on those two missteps.
Our big international signings of 2012 were all Logan. Engle was hired several months after Puig, Urias, and Leon were signed, and Logan had already been following Ryu for years.
@mostly exciting potato @Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda @BrianCapoccia Add Sweeney or Schebler to the deal.
@Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda @mostly exciting potato Ned's most blatant example of overbidding was re-signing Juan Rivera. That was one of the first, if not the very first, signings of the 2011 off season and it set the market for subsequent overpays.
@mostly exciting potato @MajorPuigBaseball @Subtle Euphemism aka Jonathan Lingo Engle was hired several months after Puig, Urias, and Leon were signed, and Logan had already been following Ryu for years.
Thinking outside the box, what if Donny had told Haren and Kershaw before Game 3 that Haren was going to pitch the first two or three innings of Game 4, with Clayton entering the game in the 3rd or 4th?

Hung a curve there...surprised Belt didn't put it in the cove.

@Diane Nguyen Well, yeah.
3 weeks ago on So, About Clayton Kershaw And Tipping Pitches…
@ tomato @The Dude Abides @BehindOrangeLines Right...I think that theory was BS, but on the other hand, the theory that he was missing location from the stretch would be accurate. Only one of those hits in the 7th ( the first one) was from the windup.
@ tomato @BehindOrangeLines Well, the theory was that he was tipping pitches in the stretch, and the 7th inning was the first time all game he'd pitched from the stretch.
What I was curious about last night, was why keep throwing from the stretch with the bases loaded? The first hit of the inning was from the windup, then everything else from the stretch. He was missing location with the stretch, so why not go back to the windup with the bases loaded? But then again, he's Clayton Kershaw and he's won the major league ERA title four consecutive seasons.
@Diane Nguyen This is some fascinating stuff...never knew about this. You make a good point about Mike.

@Purple Drank And some guy kept calling her.

@Purple Drank Sorry about that. She and I were busy.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Padres @ Dodgers Sept. 8, 2014: Is It October Yet?
@WBBsAs (In Dog We Trust. Un Planeta Sin Gatos) @jWerthfan @The Dude Abides Yeah, but Crawford running on a 3-2 count is reasonable.
@Chat dans le chapeau Los gatos con berets paracen mas stupido que los gatos sin berets, man.
@DBrim I hope we give Arry a chance.
@jWerthfan @The Dude Abides OK - and Hanley?
@Chat dans le chapeau NO YOU
I love our 2-0 lead, but I question why anyone other than Dee should be trying to run on Rivera, considering how often that guy throws out our base stealers. We're getting to Despaigne early, so why are we giving SD free outs?
@efb @P_F_P What song are you on now? Still Queen?
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Dodgers 2, D’Backs 1: Dan Haren Is Good Again?
@seat 16 and 17 @CloudyWithaChanceofMeatblahs I just want to find Sue. She seems so popular!

@MScottEiland @Spastic THIS... :(
@OCDodger @Barney (Not Darwin) @tsneddy (Fan of Small Ball) @Spastic Cubs or Dodgers will sign Lester.
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Dodgers @ Padres Aug. 31, 2014: Welcome back Ryu and Uribe
@tsneddy (Fan of Small Ball) @Swung at ball 4 HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA look at you!
@dodgerfan222 Because the crappy Angels bullpen guys weren't making much money (young, team controlled), and they were either sent down or traded away for other reclamation projects (Frieri for Grilli). Then they brought in some additional better guys by trading some of their top prospects. Our crappy bullpen guys were signed as veteran free agents and can't be sent down, and Ned HATES to cut bait on his signings. So we have Maholm, Wright, and Perez instead of Paco and Yimi/Dominguez.

@DBrim What about the 1-1 pitch to Kemp?

Butera looked almost safe at 2B...would've liked to have seen a slow motion replay.
@Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) @Uncultured Bastard At the very end of that GIF, you can see Kersh at the lower right starting a splash party.

@0ptimus Do they have any righties on the bench?
@KMT59 That one scared me.
@Bay_of_Puigs Brim was devastated.
@nsxtasy @juanhenry Paco said he's only at 70 or 75%, can't remember which.
@juanhenry Paco more likely to be two more weeks at least.
