Id like to know how many runs the Dodgers have missed out on due to Adrian Gonzalez being held up at 3rd on a base hit after he had doubled.
Its the right call, but seems like most of their hits with RISP happen after Gonzalez doubles.

@Technogit Must be young, can't imagine any baseball fan over the age of 20 not knowing the reference. As for the original commenter you are aware Scioscia was a player before becoming a manager, right, and that it was with the Dodgers?

Colleti doesnt run him out there in the 9th
1 week ago on D’Backs @ Dodgers June 10, 2013: What, Put an Injured Player on the DL?
Becuz saves stat!
Good point. Id prefer he doesnt pitch, period. Salary be damned
Ive been in the "doesnt matter whos closing if League blows the lead in the 8th anyway" camp but he shouldnt even be allowed to handle the 8th at this point. He should not be anywhere near a key inning.
Looks like we will get a chance early on to see why Cruz batting 5th is a bad idea. If Van Slyke gets out is anyone not certain of a double play off Cruz's bat?
1 week, 2 days ago on Braves @ Dodgers June 9, 2013: For Your Own Safety, Look Away
@philipp1 @SportsBrah We've definitely trotted out worse this year. Picture the same lineup minus Gonzalez and Puig with Hairston or Uribe trying to play 1B
@EephusBlue @Nineteen84 Honestly I was just brainstorming here and clearly you're looking at things from a much deeper level of analysis than I intended. I'm not there with the team I don't know what goes into these decisions and who has what kind of input. I'm a frustrated fan trying to make sense of things.
@EephusBlue @Nineteen84 That's what I just said.
@EephusBlue @Nineteen84 I'm not in any way saying Don has control over the DL or roster moves, which is sorta my point. He clearly thinks Hanley came back too soon, but its not like he could stop it.
@EephusBlue @Nineteen84 Its not the roster moves its what occurs after these moves have been made
@Capnsparrow @EephusBlue @Nineteen84 Right. Much better way of wording things. I'd say it would qualify as poor communication if they aren't willing to listen to Don on this kind of thing.
@KMT59 @Capnsparrow @Gilbert (Vengeance) @StealingSaenz Yeah I used to wrap my hands as a preventative measure its probably nothing more than that
@EephusBlue @Nineteen84 Look I can't tell you there definitely is a lack of communication but there's gotta be some sort of explanation for how this type of confusion occurs, and its one theory
@EephusBlue @Nineteen84 I mean if Hanley needs to be treated with baby gloves to this extreme he clearly shouldn't have come off the DL.
@Capnsparrow @StealingSaenz I'd guess blisters
@EephusBlue @Nineteen84 Oh I dunno how about the time Ellis was hurt for an entire week leaving the team with a short bench for multiple games before he was finally DL'ed, and what's currently going on with Hanley....the indecisiveness hurts the team and it makes you wonder if the front office and Don are on the same page
@Capnsparrow @Nineteen84 @Magic Blahnson If somebody bought season tickets based on the thought of seeing Cruz 81 times they need help
I've been blaming injuries all year and I'm finally seeing the light. It makes you wonder if the front office and Mattingly even have each other's phone numbers. Yeah the injury bug has hit hard but the way they've managed it is just laughable. There is a real communication problem in the management structure here.
