No really, he could fall asleep in the clubhouse an nobody would notice.

 @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  @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.

 @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.

1 year, 10 months ago on Hey Man, You Jellin’?

Reply

 @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.

1 year, 10 months ago on Hey Man, You Jellin’?

Reply

 @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.

1 year, 10 months ago on Hey Man, You Jellin’?

Reply

 @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?

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.

 @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.

@ED_IN_DE Not special because, as I said, he manages by the book. It's defensible, just not good. Are you saying Gordon in leadoff is smart? What about AK batting fifth? Gwynn eighth? Until three weeks ago, the cards fell his way. Now he's stuck.

@ED_IN_DE I disagree. He's strategy is grossly by the book. Why is Gordon batting first? Why does AK and loney bat higher than Ellis? He's not special, just lucky.
