@TellMyWifeISaidHello @PagansOedipalComplex Oedipus clearly said Lester on a contract extension, not Lester for two months. The Dude interprets that as no deal unless Lester extends with LA.

@PagansOedipalComplex @The Dude Abides @DBrim Both of those guys have fallen off this year. Hembree apparently never developed reliable secondary stuff and his FB velocity is down. Escobar isn't as good as Zach Lee.
1 day, 12 hours ago on Dodgers 8, Giants 1: Yasiel Puig fails to hit a home run yet again. Is he a bust?
@PagansOedipalComplex @DBrim Good call, got the lefty correct.
@JonathanLingo @DBrim @usclarry I am the walrus.
@PagansOedipalComplex @usclarry Yeah, the guys who faced him? They faced him when he was Jake Peavy. He's jake peavy now.
Did everyone already see Grant's post that announced the news that Uggla was called up and starting? The caption was pretty great: "This is how the world ends. Not with a bang but a whiffer." Good URL too.

@LA_Woman What movie is this from? Seems familiar.

@Crushinator (Bender lover) @Jobu @Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year) Phillies aren't trading Hamels to us if two of Joc, Seager, or Urias are not part of the trade.

@Pwocky @Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year) @potato (2014 MSTY: Newcomer of the Year) I'm not your pal, friend.
@PagansOedipalComplex @The Dude Abides Start swinging at closer pitches with two strikes, for one thing. He also has improved his former weakness against LHP, slashing .298/.404/.540 in 124 PAs this season. He seems to be the type who adjusts well.
2 days, 23 hours ago on So This Is What Relievers Cost
@PagansOedipalComplex @The Dude Abides I don't think it's a huge problem. He's very patient, and apparently looks at a lot of borderline called third strikes that batters would swing at in the old days.
He did hit that bomb the other day off Tommy Milone, who had a 2.6 ERA in his last 10 or 11 starts for Oakland before getting sent to AAA to make room for the two Cubbies. So, there's that.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @The Dude Abides @Dustin Nosler Can't see Logan thinking that.

@TellMyWifeISaidHello @The Dude Abides @Dustin Nosler I'm paraphrasing what our front office said in interviews...probably parsing what they said too. My guess is that we had a board with different prospects of similar talent/potential, and the college prospects were preferred over the high school prospects because they would be more advanced...and that's how Anderson was selected over Harvey, who has all the things Logan looks for (projectability, bloodlines, high school stud).
@TellMyWifeISaidHello @The Dude Abides @Dustin Nosler That was the word coming out around last year's draft, though. College pitcher unless it's a no-doubt decision.
@Dustin Nosler It still bugs me that there seemed to be a mandate for drafting college arms over high school arms in the 2013 draft, and that cost us the great high school arm who was still on the board when we picked Anderson.
@jWerthfan @Dustin Nosler @The Dude Abides May you be infested with the fleas of a thousand camels.
4 days, 9 hours ago on Should We Be Frightened About Ned Colletti Trading For A Reliever?
@West Coast Ram Apparently Triple A bats haven't soured on him. He still does not have an out pitch. When he was drafted, it was thought that his velocity would increase as his frame filled out, but that didn't happen.
4 days, 11 hours ago on Should We Be Frightened About Ned Colletti Trading For A Reliever?
@Omer (beercoozie) I think Donnie sent out Perez instead of League to start the 8th for precisely that reason. I think Donnie wanted to keep Paco and cut bait with Perez, and threw him into the fire in a one-run lead to see what he could do. Bringing League into the game anyway is what convinces me of this...otherwise, why not start the inning with League? Donnie can't be that stupid to think that starting the inning with Perez is the better baseball move, right?
@ tomato @The Dude Abides @Mike Petriello Haren>>Danks, and Danks makes more money. I don't think he's one of Ned's targets.
@Mike Petriello @The Dude Abides Yeah, the first group was what I'd start with...I figured the divisional premium would force us to add one of the second group to the deal.
(waves hand imperiously)
Make it happen, Mike.
@Mike Petriello @The Dude Abides Would you do that deal if you were Ned?
Proposal: Ian Kennedy to the Dodgers, and Padres get two of Sweeney, Z. Lee, Reed, or Schebler, plus one of Arano, Araujo, or Curletta. Does the deal get done?
@Barney G @#needshitforcycle Ned still blames Perez's dog.

@Jeremy_N Yep. Wilson can't automatically be our "8th inning guy no matter what" anymore. He hasn't earned it. I think we need to go with matchups in the pen before the 9th.
5 days, 12 hours ago on If Not David Price, What Starter Can The Dodgers Target?
Cliff Lee was sitting 88-90 in his minor league rehab starts and 88-90 last night. Didn't throw one FB over 90 in the first three innings. If we go after him, it's going to have to be a waiver deal and only if he's back up to 90-93 like he was before mid-May. I'm off the Cliff Lee train for now.

5 days, 18 hours ago on Dodgers 5, Pirates 2: Finally, Edinson Volquez Is Good For Something
@DBrim @Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year) The Cards needed to get a player pegged. They've injured two of our guys, then put the icing on the cake by throwing at Hanley's head. Kersh sent a message and didn't injure anyone.
1 week ago on Dodgers @ Cardinals July 20, 2014: Joc Pederson And The 25 Man Roster
@capnsparrow (Actual top vote getter for POY) There are several good bullpen candidates in Great Lakes. Surprised I haven't seen an announcement for promotions of one or two of them.
1 week, 1 day ago on Dodgers have signed 33 of their 40 2014 draft picks, including Godbold & Ferguson

1 week, 3 days ago on Dodgers’ prospect scouting report July 2014: Corey Seager
@InsideThePark (West Lake Landfill) (1) That's why it would be an August trade, because potential suitors won't be convinced by rehab performances in July. (2) He was sitting 89-91 in his first rehab start last week. Not sure where he's at now. Haven't heard anything.
@nsxtasy @The Dude Abides @InsideThePark (West Lake Landfill) We're talking about Reed, right?
@Disgruntled Goat @capnsparrow (Actual top vote getter for POY) @The Dude Abides See below, it was a mistype.
@InsideThePark (West Lake Landfill) I know. ABQ lowers trade value.
@capnsparrow (Actual top vote getter for POY) @The Dude Abides Right, I meant keep him in Chattanooga because ABQ could lower his trade value. If Lee comes back off his rehab ok, I'd rather have him than give up two or three of our top prospects for Price.
@capnsparrow (Actual top vote getter for POY) Keep him in ABQ, no reason to lower his trade value for the August trade with Philly for Cliff Lee (Reed, Z. Lee, Schebler, Sweeney going to Philly).
@offense plz @Dustin Nosler Nailed by line drive right back up the middle by Puig. Oh wait, now I feel bad about typing that.
@steelmohawk @The Dude Abides Yup. I imagine that Urias would have risen higher this season if the Dodgers weren't going so slow with him (which is a good thing).
1 week, 3 days ago on Down On The Farm: 7/7 – 7/13 – Seager rises, Pederson & Guerrero return
@JackedNate @The Dude Abides Seager went from #18 preseason to #5, Urias #14 to #17, Joc #41 to #22.

Keith Law's top 50
@potato (2014 MSTY: Newcomer of the Year) He did give up two dingers in his four innings yesterday.
Next batter after Joc grounded into a 3B to 1B double play. Third baseman couldn't go to 2B for the initial out because he was intimidated by Joc's aura.
