@FantasticFlex @KMT59 I'm assuming Kasten has to deal with everything, fans, stadium, team, minors, etc. whereas Friedman only deals with the team
1 week ago on Baseball Twitter reacts to Dodgers’ hiring of Andrew Friedman
@Omer (beercoozie) @wilhud lol, I mean I guess the Dodgers could let him go but why would they? He's theirs for another couple years so long as they pay him

@Omer (beercoozie) He's coming back next year
I don't think they should fire Ned...just demote him to "guy who specializes in finding 2B options that get hot for a couple years". That should be his only job.
So....stupid me assumed today's game would be another 6pm start. Got off work and checked my phone to see what was going on to find to my surprise that the game was already over and that the Dodgers had lost. Would've liked the chance to see the game (stupid scheduling for East Coasters and not West Coasters). Guess I should be happy I didn't get to see it. Ah well. Go Dodgers 2015!!

@Mike Petriello @wilhud yeah true
2 weeks, 1 day ago on So, About Game 3 Of the NLDS Last Night…
Just curious, do other teams force their better pitchers to go on short rest during the postseason? I only have one other example to look at right now because most teams got swept, but it appears the Nationals are using Gio in game 4. This is the second year in a row that the Dodgers are doing it to Kershaw. Granted it could have a lot to do with the decision between the best pitcher in baseball and any #4 pitcher regardless of who they are. I don't really pay attention to other teams in the postseason though, so maybe it's common. It seems rather necessary now, but they had already named him the Game 4 starter prior to last nights game from what I heard. At the very least, it would seem like a smart idea not to announce that before Game 3 since you're now telling the Cardinals that it's a must win game for them cuz they're gonna have to face Kershaw/Greinke the rest of the way....not sure why you would want to give any added incentive to the opposition. I'm guessing they would have retracted that and used Haren in Game 4, had the Dodgers won. Again, more of a curiosity than anything...doubt it has a lot to do with any actual outcome.
@Raul Franklin I liked his celebration even more
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Cardinals 3, Dodgers 1: Bullpen implodes (again), season on the line
Dodgers need to call up the Kings for a pep talk...they definitely know how to win with their backs against the wall
2 weeks, 1 day ago on Dodgers @ Cardinals Oct. 6, 2014: NLDS Game 3, Ryu vs. Lackey
lmao @ Howell's reaction. Nice job gettin out of the jam!!
why is their inclination to show 2 straight replays from in front of the plate on a check swing?
Neshek sure is one weird ass mofo on the mound lol
Let's go Dee, Puig, AGone!!!
no giving up anymore runs. down by 2 is not impossible...anymore tho and it will be
@DodgerLivingInWeHo bow tie guy said it's only gonna last 5 mins
Let's go Van Smash!
So on my way home I heard Vin on the radio. Does that mean he's doing all postseason games...even the away games?
Ryu! Ryu! Ryu!
he should be out. That's not pitch framing, that's just bullshit
Let's go CC! Don't waste the RISP
Fuck you Carpenter, Lackey and Umpire!!!
Call all the strikes!!
WTF was that?
Woooooo MFin hoooooooo!!!!!!! PUUUIIGGGGGGG!!!!!!
Let's go Puig, AGone, Kemp!!!
@OCDodger Probably said, wow I was amazed you gave me those strike call thanks! lol
The shot to the mask was for calling that 2nd pitch a strike
@KMT59 @wilhud Imagining that along with Nancy Bea playing in the background. Ah hell, why imagine lol...
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Dodgers 3, Cardinals 2: This Sport Is Bad For Your Health
I just got home. Didn't get to see the game :( Glad everyone else got to see a happy ending tonight and not another gut wrenching loss.
BTW, I watch that gif of Matty and just imagine him saying "I am a golden god!" as he swings the bat...a golden god in blue of course.
Great win! Hope Ryu is in his true road form for game 3.
@Blue Collar @Lobo What are you waiting for, hurry up and play another game...and this time you better effin win lol
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Cardinals 10, Dodgers 9: What In The Holy Hell Just Happened
@MalkinCookies I saw him when the game was on live. At that point I wanted Puig to get a hit just to make the kids in the stands elated. Woulda been so great to see his reaction had Yasiel tied it up or hit a walk off.
I don't see what they're talking about...
@KMT59 I liked that Matty got in there and broke up the AGon Molina thing. He's shown some hot headed-ness in the past. Glad someone got in there before anything happened and the Dodgers wind up without one of the better bats in the lineup.
What sucks too is in the inning Kershaw had Adams 0-2 in his AB and then surrendered a hit. That was a huge AB. Had he made an out they woulda only scored one run.
@moneynow27 Pretty much. Altho I would say it was kind of foolish to leave Kershaw in against Carpenter who it known to hit him well after he had already given up a bunch of hits prior to the AB. Still had a 2 run lead when he came to the plate. Everything before that I was fine with but seemed like Don was playing with fire leaving Kershaw in there. If you're that worried about the bullpen shitting the bed, then bring in Kenley to shut the inning down.
2 weeks, 4 days ago on NLDS Game 1, Part 2: This Is Going Really, Really Well
