@Hoze That doesn't really address the protection you need if Zack opts out of his contract which I believe can happen after 2015 and Ryu is only on a four year deal so we are half way through that and he will be much more expensive to resign.

@Disgruntled Goat What do you think about going after Scherzer in the off-season with the Beckett/Haren money as a precaution to Zack exercising his out clause in 2016(?)

@Disgruntled Goat yes? The CBA does allow for it or you agree that is something they should consider?

I know this is way off topic but does the CBA allow the Dodger's to exercise their buyout clause on Billingsley but then offer him a new contract?  I think that the FO must have been counting on Billz returning for a healthy 2nd half at the start of the season and therefore was not too worried about going in with Beckett and Haren.  The rehab injury has made everyone say that Billz Dodger career is over but why wouldn't they take a chance on his recovery with an incentive filled contract?

@Tommy D the best thing about the web, you can follow the Seattle Supersonics of OKC from afar.  That is the only way to keep up with my LA Rams of STL.

@DBrim  Disappointing, even if they are not true believers it is totally irresponsible not to use this information during your evaluation even if it is just to see what your competition might be thinking.  If there is one thing that I can look at and not have much faith in the new ownership it is that Ned was allowed to keep his job.

@davstein48  It is hard to see anything that is more offensive than the nickname of Washington's NFL team.  Just image placing any other ethic slur behind that and see what kind of outcry you would generate.  What is more disgusting Is that is happen in the nation's capital.

Just got home from watching Zack Lee pitch, he looked good 5Ks, 2 BBs and 5 hits in 6 innings.  He would have given up no runs but Cliff Robinson forgot to wear his glove onto the field and on a two hopper to first the  ball went right through him and the official scorer ruled it a hit. Ah, home cooking.  Two questionable runs allowed.  Lee also picked up two hits and 2 rbi.

The term closer should never be used for your best reliever and the criteria for a "save" should be modified.  The game can be saved in the 7th inning with two on and no outs as easily as the 9th.  Why smart managers don't use their best reliever in high leverage situations instead of based on the inning is crazy.  I know captain obvious.

@paulfromturlock Granted they have had some injuries that would cripple many teams but if you want to be a WS contender I think you have to have a better bench because of the injury history of Pagan or Scutaro.  Now one could have planned for the time missed by Belt and Cain but the other two should have had quality contingency plans.

1 month ago on Matt Kemp’s Offense Is Not The Problem

Reply

@paulfromturlock Were you feeling this way when this team was up by 9.5 games on LA?  When Morse was totally playing above his career norms?  When Romo was still considered a reliable closer? When some minor leaguer named Hicks was playing out of his ass?  This was a poorly constructed team from the start and once any injury happened other flaws began to be magnified.

Totally agree with the idea that at this point Kemp is not a player that you pay someone else to take.  If you can find a trade where the amount of cash going with him is small, great move him, but other wise he is doing just fine.

It surprises me on how quickly everyone has soured on Zack Lee.  It was just a couple of years ago everyone thought he was a #2 pitcher and now Dodger fans want to throw him into almost any trade scenario.
