@Disgruntled Goat Selig had interleague play and instant replay. Manfred is going after defensive shifts.

Manfred's first act as commish is going to ban shifts? He really wants to be known as the commish who told fielders where not to stand?
I think Jarek was a character in Mortal Kombat 4.

@DKD Maybe the Dodgers don't feel the need to trade for DeShields.

@I Am PFP And So Can You If only Jody Reed had resigned.
@DBrim At least the Giants won't end up with him.

3 weeks, 4 days ago on 2014 Dodgers In Review: RP Chris Perez
@Tymathee DC maybe. Superman looks like he could have a good fastball. The Flash could hit leadoff and DK would be obsessed with him.
@Diane Kemp Nguyen Yeah low might be a better term. Someone would have to walk five in a row to outsuck Perez.
@Diane Kemp Nguyen It's an optimistic post. Basically Perez was so shitty that he set the bar pretty high for any reliever trying to suck as much as him.
@Cochito Commish @Barney (Not Darwin) Colletti did have a weird former Giant fetish.
I'd like to think that if this front office was around last year, Perez never signs with the Dodgers.
@Purple Drank @Walton We also fucked up by trading for a 26 year old catcher who had knee surgery. Grandal is cooked but a 34 year old catcher with bad knees will only improve.

@Casey the DeliMan @Barney (Not Darwin) They had renovated it. When they hosted the ASG in 1989, the Rams were still playing in it.
@Casey the DeliMan Outside of Yankee Stadium in 2008 and Angel Stadium in 2010, since the late 90s, they've only been giving the ASG to teams with newer stadiums.
@DKD Which is why it's a bit early for win projections wouldn't you say?
@Purple Drank @DKD Bet him $50 bucks about how they'll win more than 84.
@DKD I just don't think the team needs the distraction. His talent right now isn't worth putting up with that shit anymore. If he's unhappy with his role on the team, then they need to trade him.
1 month ago on 2014 Dodgers In Review: OF Joc Pederson
@DKD For fair value of course. I'm just not seeing how we should keep him just because he was a good pinch hitter even if it means the team having to deal with a disgruntled veteran.
@DKD It's easy for us to say that when we're not in there dealing with that. He has said he wasn't happy with his role last season. If he's going to be a problem, then the team should honor his request and trade him.
@DKD Ethier has asked to start whether it's with the Dodgers or another team. If reports of the clubhouse issues are to believed, why would they invite more clubhouse issues by keeping an unhappy veteran?
I look forward to us making various Joc-related puns this upcoming season.
@Iron Man Returns He became the leader of the Joc Pederson Marching and Chowder Society.
@Disgruntled Goat The Joker gif would go well here.

@Diane Kemp Nguyen He lives in Riverside too?
@- Casey - Should we expect another Taylor Swift breakup song?
@0ptimus @Barney (Not Darwin) @Disgruntled Goat You're one of the few. So many fans feel strongly one way or the other.
1 month ago on 2014 Dodgers In Review: OF Mike Baxter
@Disgruntled Goat That trade is all or nothing. Either you love it or hate, there's no in between.
@tsneddy (change is weird) @Mike Petriello @ngross32 You know, you're not the only person who's used batting average as an argument against trading for Grandal. DK has used the same argument. So I don't think it was meant towards you specifically.
The Kemp trade is increasing the population of bozoville.
The skies are getting dark and I hear some thunder. I think the banhammer is coming.
@DBrim I like getting someone like Wieland because it helps prevent them having to trade for someone like Roberto Hernandez or Kevin Correia.
@tsneddy (change is weird) @Barney (Not Darwin) @Mike Petriello I agree that they should trade him, it's just that they're not getting anything useful for him. He had a bad year and has no value right now. I don't think they'd just release him with three years left on his deal either.
@tsneddy (change is weird) @Mike Petriello Nobody wanted Ethier and Kemp got them a better return than Ethier would've.
@DBrim @DKD But Grandal is 26 and had knee surgery, so he's clearly cooked.
@DKD They won 94 games but let's face it, they had some holes.
@DKD Ok is still better than how Upton, Myers and Kemp are projected to be defensively. The Padres were desperate for offense so they were willing to sacrifice defense.
@DKD Defensively an outfield of Crawford, Pederson and Puig should be better than an outfield of Upton, Myers and Kemp.
@internet baseball fan potato friend and they're not exactly the best defensive outfield either.
@DKD I definitely don't think they should be taken lightly.
@Still PFP @brendanl99 @DINGERS! It might be a classic case of reporters trashing players on their way out.
1 month, 1 week ago on Look How Different The Dodgers Roster Is Now
@666foldamort and that's okay as long as they score enough to win.
@Condorave @Still PFP I still like the deal now even if Ethier has declined. He was a good player and they were able to sucker Billy Beane into taking Milton Bradley.
@KMT59 @Barney (Not Darwin) @Mike Petriello The Giants might panic and throw ridiculous amounts of money at Shields or Scherzer. They might be worried they're falling behind the Dodgers and Padres.
1 month, 1 week ago on Brian Wilson released by Dodgers after unsurprising lack of interest
@KMT59 @Barney (Not Darwin) @Mike Petriello That rotation is already pretty good. With someone like Hamels and some offense, they'd be tough.
@Table (dick) @Barney (Not Darwin) @Mike Petriello They're much improved. They won 77 games last year with good pitching and no offense. You give them some offense and they should win at least 80.
@Condorave Someone had to stand with a glove on his hand near third base for them.
@KMT59 @Mike Petriello The popular rumor is that the Padres could try to acquire him. If they do, I might be worried about them.
@Condorave @Barney (Not Darwin) I hope they're better than the Giants.
