@Crushinator the guy with the dreads that worked here before and they marketed him to death
anyone interested in manny as our 5'th outfielder to back up first base and whichever outfielder needs an off day?
@DavePomerantz @efb @Mike Petriello oh yeah and florida is stipulated by most cruise firms as only venue should you sue them...forgot that as a reason to hook up with FL licensed firms.
@DavePomerantz @efb @Mike Petriello if you're a referral service you totally hook up with firms in at least FL with its elderly population, large population, and texas, with it's multitude of 18 wheeler drivers falling asleep at the wheel and killing people in the wee hours in the middle of nowhere
The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker takes injury cases throughout California and Arizona, with offices in Long Beach, Los Angeles, Riverside, Fresno, Bakersfield, Phoenix, and Tucson.
i was wrong he does arizona as well.
His website is cali only and they don't talk about a network of associate or sister offices in other states. That with all the so cal information and reward citings all focusing in california say to me firm not referral.
@efb @Mike Petriello :(
@Mike Petriello someone in wheelchair next to lawyer in tight shot so you don't see wheelchair says, "Larry H. Parker won me 2.1 million dollars!"
@Mike Petriello larry h. parker=1980's personal injury lawyer commercials that ran in so. california
The pic and title made me think of the larry h. parker commercials for some reason.

you all know by now how ignorant i usually am, so bear with me.
How often in mlb history has a player successfully taken up switch hitting after he's already in the majors?
Ethier seems to be one person with the hitting skills to at least up his average against lefties, probably with little power from the left side, but it would do a lot to shore up his biggest offensive weakness.

@Gilbert_Vengeance the ownership group will be like the lil old lady i used to deliver to in college who tipped 10 bucks for a 20 buck pizza order and advised me to 'go buy yourself a coke or something, it's especially hot today.'
The owners will show him the money and maybe even what's inside the Pulp Fiction suitcase.
@Disgruntled Goat @EephusBlue I'm still pretty ignorant despite following the offseason.
@Chris Jackson @Mike Petriello it's just weird that that in a game that values not drawing attention to oneself even if one is elite, the guy that often referred to himself in the third person is the one that got into the hall first (he deserves it definitely, Henderson was an awesome player) while the guy who quietly put up the same if not better numbers in some respects gets largely forgotten about. Kinda darned if you do (Rickey got a lot of flack for being a hot dog) and darned if you don't (Raines possibly not being appreciated by the game he loved because he played in the shadow of Rickey).

@Gilbert_Vengeance after you buy it, turn the cover paper inside out so you don't have to see buster pogina. or buy a used copy after a few weeks that doesn't even have the cover.
@DavePomerantz yeah, you're right.
@The_Real_Paul @Gilbert_Vengeance Thanks. Once i actually looked at who made cover and their associated year, there's nothing to it with the show except maybe liking Joe Mauer a little too much. I'm lucky I didn't vote last night because I was going to vote for posey
@Gilbert_Vengeance I thought there was a box cover curse associated with this game
I guess to make it interesting I'd move him back to catcher, just to make sure Posey has some competition.

@Cat Facts you're not putting this on the cover of the game, correct? Because we don't need that :)
@GordonMoody @Mike Petriello question marks surround Mauer though. Your faith in him must be strong.
I'm going to go Bryce Harper.
@Amy Wong, Ph.D. Candidate booo
If you could add any player in the league to the dodgers, which would you add, and what moves would you make in the aftermath?
@EephusBlue @Cat Facts my guy would take his paw and scoop a few greenies onto the floor for himself. Only trick i taught him.
@EephusBlue @Cat Facts it's ok. he was 18 years old or so. Older than my marriage. Package deal. Best cat I've ever encountered.
@EephusBlue @LA_Woman yes i'm looking at you, miami!
@EephusBlue @LA_Woman i fully support teams supporting themselves
@GordonMoody @Cat Facts thanks for the offer! Wife is totally wanting her emotions to settle down lest she rebound a http://altdodgerthinking.blogspot.com/ here's what he looked like
@Cat Facts yeah my cat that just died a month ago could, thanks :(
@Amy Wong, Ph.D. Candidate i'm usually panned but it's o.k. to learn stuff from smarter people.
@GordonMoody @DBrim @Mike lead off with the storm?
@Amy Wong, Ph.D. Candidate good! :)
@Amy Wong, Ph.D. Candidate rut-roh. don't want to ruin your weekend again.
@Mike Petriello @GordonMoody regardless of who management thinks is the 'better' player, it will all be for nought if a lefty masher outfielder is not found to compliment the player.
yeah it's working alright now.
I think i just don't like Bourn as much as the rest of the board.
did i surpass the stupidity threshold allowed to post here all of a sudden? A lot of my posts aren't appearing.
I agree if it is done that way. I thought, and maybe wrongly from reading what most folks were posting yesterday was to move Ethier primarily to sign Bourn. If an Ethier trade were done with the mariners to help bolster the return for i presume dee gordon I'm all on board with that. But if what we're left with is Dee Gordon, no Ethier, and Bourn and a limited return of low ceiling prospects or at mlb ready players then I'd consider it a knee-jerk move to catch the last free agent outfielder standing.
@Bob Meripol @EephusBlue totally agree with that.
@DBrim @dustybakersoldtoothpick I wouldn't under all circumstances. I would under the circumstances of trading Ethier to sign Bourn.
Another day without an Ethier trade cannot be all that bad of a day :)
Even if he was traded, at least I'll have learned that ownership is more similar to Steinbrenner which cuts both ways; sometimes they'll make hasty, short-sighted moves that don't pan out; sometimes they'll catch exactly where the wind is blowing and get the right guy at the right time. Hopefully this similarity doesn't bleed into Steinbrenner's blow outs to the press and all that. Just doesn't seem L.A. style.
I am now in this unfamiliar apple cart. It says Trade Belisario while he's still useful before trading Uribe. I am confused.
