Torre should talk to the Cardinals so they can show the Dodgers how to foam party the right way.

Travel safe! If you run into Lyons, ask if the first three hrs in the 4 and 1 game against the padres were rally killers!

This post is full of awesome. To the victor go the spoils, let them screw their faces up, makes it sweeter.

Buy me tix?
1 year, 3 months ago on Giants @ Dodgers September 12, 2013: Remember the Giants?
I will NEVER forget the bonds pirouette. Fucker.
There is that, for sure. It'll be the first time I see Kershaw live this year. Really looking forward to it.
Got tix for Friday and Saturday. I was REALLY hoping for a win last night. Woulda been great to see the clinch in person. Sigh.
@WBBsAs (Malamute Cat Control Services) @efb I dunno... he does radio like everyone can see what he sees... maybe TVs the thing for him.

So you're saying Uribe's a sleeper...
No really, he could fall asleep in the clubhouse an nobody would notice.
1 year, 10 months ago on What Does It Take To Be Worse Than Juan Uribe?
@Micro Scrotumo The stadium didn't turn 1 until the second year the Dodgers played there. I guess you could say they played their first season there when the stadium was zero years old.

@Mike Petriello @EephusBlue Mike, are you playing russian roulette but instead of a gun it's your phone/computer and instead of bullets it's your new bride?
2 years, 3 months ago on Cardinals @ Dodgers September 14, 2012: Kelly vs Capuano
Cruz > Gonzalez! There I said it.
@The Monocle I think you mean scrappiness.
Punto is 5'9"? That means he's scrappy!
This is one of those posts where we wake up in a cold sweat and discover that it was all just a bad dream, right? Right?!!
2 years, 3 months ago on Dodgers @ Giants September 9, 2012: Are You Kershawking Kidding Me?
@Mike Petriello @JT_Dutch Okay, look at Petco. .808 OPS. Is DS a better hitters park than Petco? If it is, I doubt it's by much.
2 years, 3 months ago on Hey Man, You Jellin’?
@Mike Petriello @JT_Dutch It's the only data available for how he performs at Dodger Stadium, and I've so far seen nothing that shows he's going to do anything different than that.
@JT_Dutch Yes. Hansen messed with his swing during ST this year and it messed him up. Once back at ABQ he went back to what he was doing in 2011 and started killing it again, look at the stats. I get that Gonzalez is good, I just simply think there were other options that might have been better from a value standpoint.
And I understand that ABQ is a launching pad.
@Frank J Lapidus @DBrim @drh But it's not a small sample, only at Petco and Fenway does he have more PA.
@JT_Dutch I would argue that the money paid to Gonzalez is not worth it given his splits at Dodger Stadium. He is without a doubt an upgrade over Loney, but it bothers me that Sands was never given a true opportunity. Sands' line of .253/.338/.389 over 227 PA in 2011 is better than Gonzalez' career of 233 at DS.
@MFYG Never said that. Only trying to make the point that he does not have good numbers at Dodger Stadium. I am questioning whether the money paid for him is worth it. I will be honest, though. I did not like this acquisition. Don't get me wrong.. he is an upgrade over Loney. But maybe Sands would have been, too, for a LOT less money.
@DBrim And he's dead last in OPS at DS for all ballparks that he has > 100 PA
Hmm... 233 ranks 3rd all time on his ballpark splts. Only at Petco and Fenway does he have more.
"Gonzalez is hitting .260/.321/.380 as a Dodger"
HIs line at Dodger Stadium now is: .225/.315/.377, this is with 233 PA. Not what I would call a small sample size. Does this mean we can expect a regression?
Mike, apologies if you've answered this elsewhere, but how do you see the Juan Uribe situation playing out?

2 years, 3 months ago on Marlins @ Dodgers August 25, 2012: It’s All Happening
@hoagiebum @LA Woman @JoeyE Someone has to keep the All You Can Eat Pavilion record.
@JoeyE Castellanos was optioned per Eric Stephen
@beebrad9 Do you mean that Rivera will not see good stuff because it's wasted on Gonzalez? Don't understand how that would work.
@MatthewSaydah Yep, a big plus.
Ellis 2B, Cruz 3B, Kemp CF, Gonzalez 1B, Ramirez SS, Ethier RF, Rivera LF, Ellis C, Kershaw P
Lineup has changed
Is it correct that he will be 1 PA short of qualifying for the batting title?
2 years, 4 months ago on Dodgers @ Pirates August 15, 2012: Kershaw vs Wandy
I just lost the "second basemen hit second" pool. Damn Uribe.
2 years, 4 months ago on Dodgers @ Pirates August 14, 2012: Juan Uribe Lives
I think this entry really captures the essence of this years team. Very good read! It helps me reconcile the cognitive dissonance I have between hoping they finally win their 63rd game thereby ensuring they don't out do the '92 squad in losses and still believing they can pull a St. Louis Cardinals of last year.
2 years, 4 months ago on Up-And-Down Dodgers Continuing to Baffle
Maybe tonight is the night the lineup gets hot. Ever since I've seen Kemp, Ethier, Ramirez together I keep thinking it will happen. But then again...
2 years, 4 months ago on Cubs @ Dodgers August 4, 2012: Volstad vs Kershaw
@ThtsaPaddlin @GregFlores There it is!!!!
@GregFlores More likely he'll be in line for Dodger Dogs... ba-da-cha!
@Mike Petriello Ah yes. I see now. Yep... just a matter of time.
@Mike Petriello Option for what? The bat or the defense? It's hard to imagine either.
So what is it? Do the Dodgers see Uribe as a bat off the bench? Seems ridiculous. It must be his defense?
@JohnM He's turned TONS of buffet line corners

2 years, 5 months ago on Padres @ Dodgers July 13, 2012: The Return of Matt Kemp & Andre Ethier
Crap! The Kennedy Kurse Kontinues...
@Deuce That ties into the development of another pitch, IMO. The blowing away part comes in when the batter has to make more guesses as to what is coming next. Let's face it, you can't get away with just a good heater at this level.
