1 week, 4 days ago on Dodgers Reportedly Add Three More To Front Office: Bream, Carr, Finley
I'm not sure if Russ (yeah I call him Russ) would have issues with coming back to the Dodgers. It's different ownership and a VERY different front office. He'd get a chance to play for a competitive team and with some of his old friends, for a fanbase that still loves him plus make a lot of money. It doesn't seem that far fetched.
1 week, 5 days ago on How Much Competition Would The Dodgers Have For Russell Martin?
so I've pretty much taken a huge break from baseball since about Game 5 of the World Series. Tried not to read or talk about it too much. Finally getting back to things. Here is my big ask to the new front office: Try not to get caught up in the fact that you've got a seemingly unlimited budget. Stick to your guns, take advantage of the money when you need to, but you don't need to overload this team with expensive talent. Yes, having the best player possible at each position puts you in a better position to win, but it almost never turns into a championship. Be smart. Find the needs of the team (IE bullpen) and try to fix those things rather than just stockpiling sluggers.

I'll believe that Maddon isn't going to be the Dodgers Manager when I see him sign with another team.

@Dustin Nosler what defines prospect-eligible then?
1 month, 1 week ago on Plenty of Dodgers’ prospects on BA’s postseason Top 20 lists
do international free agents make these lists? no, right?
just a reminder, and I know it's been said a million times. if you are routing for the Giants in the NLCS, then you are not a Dodgers fan.
1 month, 1 week ago on Andrew Friedman Is Going To Do Something That Infuriates You
would you trade Kershaw and Puig for Ferandez and Stanton?
@Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda @yudodis but MadbumClutchtoberPitch
@DodgerDodger @finleysgrandslam I think the Giants have been luckier than the Royals. But I also think their luck is powered by Satan, and that Satan will ensure their luck runs through the rest of October.
@Bay_of_Puigs @finleysgrandslam ha. no i was just being lazy. the giants would figure out a way to do that, though.
@Bay_of_Puigs @finleysgrandslam but what are the better options?
@capnsparrow sometimes I think there are people who really think like that. people who really should know better.
Also. I have finally accepted the fact that the Giants are going to win another World Series and that we are going to see at least three out of these four things: Vogle Perfect Game, Joe Panik walk-off, Buster Posey bases clearing double in the top of the 15th to go up by one.
@Sad Towel @DodgerDodger @Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda @Disgruntled Goat those two things are kind of related. when you've got a .287 OBP, you don't really have as many shots at stolen bases.
i am ok with having a few unknowns in in the lineup. especially if they are coming from within our system and don't cost us any form of lengthy, bloated contracts, bad trades, or lost draft picks.
we signed Guerrero & Arrebabuerena (yeah) for a lot of money. if we''re not going to trade them (and we're not) then why wouldn't we want to give them an opportunity to play in the big leagues?
per Eric Stephen, the other day, "This is the same guy who gave James Loney a $21MM deal."
I'm looking forward to shaking things up. There are a few guys I'd like to keep around (Kershaw, Ryu, Greinke, Kemp, Jansen, Gonazalez) but the rest of the team I could go with or without.
hmm. Top 10 offensive teams by WAR in 2014: 9 of 10 made the postseason. Cardinals were 11th.
Top 10 pitching teams by WAR in 2014: 2 of 10 teams made the postseason.
1 month, 1 week ago on Hyun-Jin Ryu shares his Jin Ramen with fake Dodgers teammates
@DodgersFan also. agree with Mike that payroll won't be down to $190, but it can be less than it was last year without sacrificing a whole lot.
1 month, 1 week ago on Russell Martin: Former Dodger, Future Dodger?
@DodgersFan why are people still asking to trade kemp?
@Mike Petriello i always pictured you as an apple guy
@Purple Drank @finleysgrandslam true. but Martin does.
Would be so pumped to have Russ back. Ellis is a fan favorite, and a great leader, but really didn't produce at all during the regular season. he was great in the NLDS, but you can't count on that happening again. Problem with Martin (or any other catcher) is that they're so much better off going to an AL squad where they can play every day without having to catch every day.
@Tymathee nope. Go Cards.
@Mike Petriello @Table our new super GM is going to be able to convince the Indians that Santana should be their starting catcher and then trade Ethier straight up for Gomes.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Resetting the Dodgers 40-Man Roster For The Winter
i'm guessing that Tuesday was the last time we'll see Ethier in a Dodgers uniform.
@BIah probably somewhere in between
@BlueMarvin @finleysgrandslam I'm not saying I don't want a new GM. But right now it's not really going to make me feel any better. Maybe it will next year or during the winter if he/she makes some great moves. Right now it's just a PR move, though.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on As The Ned Turns
You're all just grasping for anything positive to hang onto. Firing Ned doesn't bring us back into the NLCS or magically erase the fact that the Satan Series is about to start. I'd love to see him gone, but I'm not saying Ned is the difference between this year and a Championship team.
@Raul Franklin @finleysgrandslam funny thing is that that was pretty much the most Puig thing he could possibly do.

so i shared this last night. will share it one more time. i wrote a thing about what it's like to be a Dodgers fan. you should read it.https://medium.com/@scottmbarrett/what-its-like-to-be-a-dodgers-fan-6db1d2d660f9also, last night will probably the last time we ever see Andre Ethier in a Dodgers uniform, which is weird. Even if he didn't really play all season long.

@Jeremy_N @Mike Petriello based on the Red Sox don't really gain anything in that deal.
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Dodgers 4, Giants 3: Sweep Mode, Activate
@BlueMarvin agreed. He is starting every day on a first place team and has the chance to play for a contending team for the rest of his career. Strange that he wants out.
@GinFizzBear I would trade Beckett for Cain in a heartbeat. Otherwise, yes.
4 months, 1 week ago on Mailbag #8: Recall Seager, DFA Ethier, Trade Gordon, Acquire Cain, Vin Still The Best
What do you think are the biggest needs for the Dodgers this year?
I would go with:
1. A solid way forward for the OF
2. A bullpen that does not include anybody named Chris Perez or Paul Malholm
3. A healthy infield
None of those involve major trades. Maybe a few call-ups. Thoughts?
@Sinful Clubhouse Lesbian @scottmbarrett whatever. the all-star game is fun. baseball is fun. that's why we (or most of us) love it. fun. remember fun?
4 months, 1 week ago on Never, Ever Let Another Dodger In The Home Run Derby
I am pumped for the all-star game. The Home Run derby was so boring. Not just because Puig Dodgered it. Holy sleepy time. I think they need a new skills competition. Maybe a throwing contest for outfielders? I think it would be fun watching Dee & Hamilton play pickle, even. Get creative, MLB
I don't know what all of these nominations are about, but I'm pumped to see Grant Holmes already that high. I'm also pumped that we're heading into the All-Star break with the best record in the NL, the best pitcher on the planet, a dude in the homerun derby, and four all-stars.

4 months, 2 weeks ago on Dodgers’ Rotation Excellence Masks Depth Concerns
So with MLB offense in a huge decline, wouldn't it be prudent of the Dodgers to keep any bats they have at their disposable.
@Mike Petriello i really want to stand in the batter's box to see what pitches like this look like. Kershaw's curve, Mo's cutter etc. I don't know if I could even stand to watch a Chapman fastball.
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Dee Gordon Actually Made An All-Star Team
Anybody else see this? I thought it was an interesting concept - might breath some fresh air into the all-star game.
@KMT59 I read this as "Matt maybe going to Seattle" about 3 times. Damn.
