@Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year) @Mike Petriello @Carlos Flores maybe some pesos.
4 days, 18 hours ago on Dodgers’ prospect scouting report July 2014: Corey Seager
@Mike Petriello @Carlos Flores nice
Seems like a lot of places have it likely we add another starter. Under this scenario, I'm assuming Haren is the odd man out (although it's dangerous to assume Beckett is healthy). What do you guys think we could obtain for Haren? He kinda has tricky value with that option for next year
@TheConman every July it's like this and it's so much frustrating fun.
@Purple Drank Bottom of the 14th in Game 2 of the NLDS: Chris Perez comes in to save the game. We all cry.
1 week, 2 days ago on The Path To Joc Pederson
@Mike Petriello @bluehaze well, you see.. Trayvon Robinson was once a Dodger prospect and he flopped so the next OF prospect is going to flop!
@Mike Petriello @Lobo @P_F_P @craigary NBA style trade lol. Makes sense though
@craigary Though I agree Ethier is easier to trade than Carl, Carl is such a bad player to have on the bench since he can only play one position, ugh. I guess that goes back to your point that Carl is less valuable then Ethier but yeah, it'd be a drag to have someone like him all year on the bench
@nsxtasy That's a good enough line to convince me he'll hit enough for CF. He doesn't have to have an otherwordly OPS. Ethier had good value for us in CF last year and he had a .785 OPS. Joc Pederson just needs to be good enough defensively, and I believe he's there.
@PagansOedipalComplex where'd you see this?
1 week, 3 days ago on Andre Ethier, Former Center Fielder
@KMT59 dammit I'm watching that game and got spoiled lol
@Purple Drank @tsneddy check with your sources to make sure
and if this is the guaranteed end of Andre Ethier as a Dodger, or everyday player, I'll miss him :( Wish he coulda been better this year, so much better. He'll get bad rep for a contract and his lack of ability in CF (two things outta his control in a sense) but yeah. (Sounds like an obituary)
If someone woulda told us like in 2009 or something that Andre Ethier would play CF for a good amount of time in 2013-2014 and it wouldn't be a complete disaster I wonder how much of an idiot you'd think that person was.
@nsxtasy He was out of options so it was the only... option.
1 week, 3 days ago on Dodgers’ center field situation needs fixing, and fast
@nsxtasy @Mike Petriello @RA_S if they paid all of it, they still wouldn't get anything in return worthwhile and would essentially gain nothing out of it that they'd gain out of DFA'ing him which is crazy with his amount of money. He's not simply overpaid, he's just not that good of a player accounting for what you get from him in the rare instances he's healthy.
@Mike Petriello @RA_S I do wonder: Could their be any scenario where the Dodgers attempt a NBA style trade and give away a prospect paired with Crawford? Not very realistic I know but I wonder what prospect(s) it'd have to be
@Mike Petriello @RA_S The Dodgers! ah wait, dammit.
@Empty Bottle Collector Jonah Keri said something similar. Doesn't smell like bullshit but it also might not really matter
7 months, 1 week ago on The Island Of Misfit Closers
Diamondbacks have about 74 mil committed in contracts to 2014, before any arb. Signing Choo would put them close to 94 committed to 2014, and then maybe push them close to or over $100 mil in payroll, which would be an increase of like 15+ mil from last year.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Matt Kemp Still A Dodger, David Price Still Not
@PuigMode sinceJune3 @Catfishin I believe he's talking about the one about the pool party where he put some comments on the record that he shouldn't have.
@mt24 It might be a front so the Angels rush in trading Trumbo to them.
I love it, and it also makes the Dan Haren signing (which already looked great) look even better. This was the market for someone like this, and we got a starter for a lesser price.
7 months, 2 weeks ago on Brian Wilson Returns: Welcome Back, You Big Weirdo
This "Puigs play is going to cost the Dodgers" stuff is such bullshit. Theres so many other things I'm worried about that could cost us games, not having anything to do with overthrowing a fucking cut off man. How many games have his throws cost us? Zero, meanwhile his "antics" have won us multiple games. Not saying it doesn't piss me off, but the risk/reward seems to be worth it and the notion that we have to discipline him cause he's Yasiel Puig but can let our other players make mistakes cause they're not Yasiel Puig is disrespectful to him.
11 months ago on What Does Clayton Kershaw Need to Do To Win the MVP?
@Mike Petriello Hey Mike, with Uribe slumping, how soon is Michael Young a Dodger?
11 months, 2 weeks ago on Dodgers @ Cardinals August 8, 2013: Stop Bunting
@JoeyE @Carlos Flores Yeah, just twitter searched and found 5 different people saying it. weird
11 months, 2 weeks ago on The Hanley Ramirez Backup Plan
Wait, Puig injured himself in BP :O omg
@Mike Petriello yesterday I was at Petco and I got to be near Mariano Rivera in the bullpen during the game, and a group of guys just wanted to ask him about A-Rod and what he thought about it. Man, he looked PISSED lol. Group I was with booted these guys out though.
@PUIG DESTROYER (Gilbert) would be fun to be in Rancho on Wednesday, might go.
@Kewldood69 Yes, I believe they are not blacked out.
@Jackie Treehorn a post it with: "Hi My name is ______"
@StealingSaenz - MSTY for Most Olmedo references They are a very smart organization, they'll figure something cool out.
@JoeyE @Carlos Flores which is offset by him not being able to make a lot of routine plays.
@JoeyE probably because of defense. The offense isn't guaranteed to be better with Dee, but the defense IS going to be worse with Dee.
11 months, 3 weeks ago on So Goes the Least Interesting Trade Deadline Ever
#Angels are definitely not doing any deals. #Dodgers may have a small, minor-league type deal in the works. Stay tuned.
@PagansOedipalComplex Given that Kuroda two years ago coulda been traded for Fife/FedEx, he could be had for much less, I'd say.
1 year ago on So Everyone Hates Yasiel Puig Now
Jayston Stark: Interesting wrinkle to Marmol deal for #Dodgers: If Marmol doesn't work out, LA releases him & he signs elsewhere they get more $ from #Cubs
1 year ago on Carlos Marmol is a Dodger, and I Don’t Hate This
If he sucks, then we release him and still end up with a net loss of money that is less than what we would have loss with releasing Guerrier. If he does well, then depth is never bad and when he is on, he's one of the best in baseball in getting a K.
Keith Law: Dodgers will send Marmol to the minors for a few outings
Good work, Mike
This is cool
Marmol has the Dodgers on his limited no trade list, so theres still a chance this doesn't happen!
1 year ago on Unpopular Opinion: The Dodgers Shouldn’t Trade Andre Ethier
@Scroogie Have you seen him play LF? You honestly think he could play 3B?
The funny part is when Kenley has a minor injury, marmol fills in for a week, does well, and is the closer for the rest of the year.
@moneynow27 You'd be okay with this if we just threw away 21 mil, and did it for a guy who is equally as bad (if not worse)?
I usually think it's not good to comment on "winning" or "losing" a trade until we know the final details, but this is a sure bet loss
@Moon Warrior (VND) what?
hahaha marmol is a Dodger
I've been saying this sentiment all year, really agree Mike. Trading Ethier (especially with Ned) would not make the team better in 2013, and we should field the best team we can this year given the all out philosophy.
I won Dodger Trivia today and my prize was two tickets at club level for the game today! The Dodgers are awesome, I'll be there for Ryu's debut
1 year, 3 months ago on Dodgers 4, Giants 0: Clayton Kershaw Is Just Living the Dream
Laroche is a good call, he is having an awesome year. If he keeps up what he is doing, he will have had his highest OPS since 2006, and his second highest OPS ever. Strange, coming back from surgery.
1 year, 10 months ago on BMNS ep002: In this episode, we are sad and silent.
Adam Kennedy had a .738 OPS against righties this year. Not gonna say the division is lost cause of him, but it's our best bench bat against righties and definitely useable against righties. He's really easy to make fun of cause it's, Adam Kennedy... But it's not like he's Juan Uribe.
1 year, 10 months ago on Dodgers @ Giants, September 8, 2012: Kempless
@EephusBlue Man I hope he is okay, this is some scary shit
1 year, 10 months ago on 2012 is Important, But It's Not the Only Goal
@EephusBlue Heart surgery sounds scary as hell, I hope he has it the day after the Dodgers final game, whenever that is.
David Vassegh @THEREAL_DV
Kenley Jansen will be out another 10 days and is planning heart surgery after the season
@fayetnam I don't think you wait long. If he isn't going to hit, you might as well put Cruz at shortstop or Hairston at third. Cruz at worst gives you good enough defense (which Dee won't) and Hairston does the same at 3B with some hit ability.
1 year, 11 months ago on What do we do with Dee Gordon?
I'm going to be very scared in a (hopeful) playoff game anytime a ball is hit to him. Post-injury, anyone would struggle, so I would think it's a bit crazy to believe he will be good enough offensively to warrant that shaky defense.
Now, off to Pittsburgh!
1 year, 11 months ago on Chris Caps decent series
@kempsbat Martin walks a batter on his way to Philly, before a Josh Lindblom HR
1 year, 11 months ago on Brandon League Arrives, But What’s Next?
I think people are underestimating the upgrade Victorino is in LF. It moves everyone down a bit and a lineup with Victorino, Rivera/Loney platoon is WAY better than a lineup with Rivera in LF, Loney at 1B.
So this is where we are gonna talk all things deadline right? Btw, huge time lurker right here but thought it'd start posting more often.
Except the difference being that it was always noted that the upside of McDonald was that of a #2/#3 starter and the upside of the players we gave up for League is that of a 7th inning guy and a 4th OF... And McDonald had the floor of a 7th/8th inning guy and the floor of Landry+Bowman is that they do absolutely notihng in the MLB level
@Mike Petriello Will you tell us what it is after July 31st?
1 year, 11 months ago on Dodgers 10, Giants 0: That Could Not Have Gone Better
@wilhud If he pitches 6 IP and gives up 2 ER everyone will say "OMG he is inconsistent"
