@BlueMarvin @Lance Uppercut @LA_Woman  He looks kind smug actually; destined to be an SF Giant.

@Mike Petriello  whoa, "bless you boys" -- after you sneeze out a bunch of coke, apparently.

But not Phil Coke.

@Purple Drank  @moneynow27  Agreed, I think he's gonna start getting some balls in play -- that aren't caught. He's going to be streaky, he's going to have his whiffs, but I look for some good success coming soon, possibly as soon as this weekend.

Oh good, another reliever. ;)
But seriously, cool report Dustin.  Doesn't sound like one of his best outings to date, but you can see the potential (and potential in his mullet as well). Hopefully his command improves, becomes more consistent, and he can be another option in rotation in a couple of years...

@Jeremy_N @MSTI OG  Yes they do seem to be. I don't expect them to fade, solid lineup, solid pen, good manager. That said their bench is weak and pitching depth really weak, any injuries would kill them more than it has us so far.  MadBum is great, Cain will be solid, Lincecum up and down, Vogelsong despite yesterday will mostly suck, Hudson has been great but hard to predict how he'll hold up all season.  Yep, I expect them to stay right there but also don't expect them to be this hot for much longer.

3 days, 7 hours ago on Dodgers @ Giants April 17, 2014: No Hanley, And Bad History For Ryu

Reply

Welp, I can't imagine him being any worse than he was last time (knocks on wood). That was pretty awful, tho to be fair from what I recall of those awful first 2 innings, he wasn't much helped by some bad D behind him and a little bit of bad luck, too. Just one of those that got away from him. But not encouraging that it wasn't first time he's struggled vs SF. I don't fully get it since he's been so good otherwise, but c'est la baseball.  I mean, the Giants didn't do much against Paul Maholm yesterday, yet they could whack Ryu?  Yep, baseball.


God I hope he's better today, with MadBum going, or could be another long day.

Back to the end of that game for a sec, I'm with Jay-Z here. WHEW. 

Once the middle of order hits like they will, will be less heart attacky games hopefully.

@Iron Brian  Sorry, rest of convo is as follows, if you don't want to click:

  1. @Buster_ESPN I report. You decide. I'm just telling you what I was told. 

  2. Craig Gary Phillips ‏@craigary  20m

    @Buster_ESPN @DodgersNation Understand! :) Just think may be some bias involved in those teams' statement. AG needs work but looked exciting 

  3. Buster Olney ‏@Buster_ESPN  6m

    @craigary @DodgersNation No AZ/SF. As I said on the show:The disparity of opinion on players from Cuba is incredible. Was that way with Puig

  4. Craig Gary Phillips ‏@craigary  6s

    @Buster_ESPN @DodgersNation Interesting. Thx, Buster. They hit on Puig so we'll see. :) As Wm Goldman once said, "Nobody knows anything."

@Iron Brian  Apparently, according to tweets, he was just reporting that he heard from 6 teams who thought Guerrero "flat out can't play".  I told him I thought this was ridiculous, on twitter, and he was at least kind enough to respond. See our conversation here:

@Disgruntled Goat  I guess I don't post here often enough to understand (what I hope is a) fake feud going on here but I refuse to take sides. I am Switzerland!  {yodels}

Don't be like stand-up comics on Twitter fellas ;)

@Dustin Nosler  you blew 'er? ;) j/k, yah no worries, I'm sure there'll be other ops to see him in the cage this year, too (and presumably on the field for that matter!)

Not the most exciting footage in the world in that video ;) but I'll take your word for it AND this is a nice piece of analysis, Dustin.  Seems like he's already improved quite a bit in a very short period which bodes well. And he may still project more as a utility guy than a starter, and will only have to hit decently to combine with his glove, but some improvement there would open a lot of options for him, and the Dodgers.
