Lyons, combined with the incessant "Everybody clap your hands" recordings at Dodger Stadium, make me watch the games with my thumb on the mute button.
I'm reading Moneyball again, and am amazed that in spite of the As outperforming their payroll for decades, few "baseball people" seem to understand what's going on. I think it's because baseball managers are chosen more for their former hand-eye coordination than for their understanding of math.

1. We don't care about home field advantage?
2. Shouldn't Volquez lead off, in case he doesn't make it far enough to get an AB?
6 months ago on Dodgers @ Rockies September 4, 2013: Why Not Drew Butera, Too?
"Not to drive the point into the ground, but it’s difficult to forget that even the Astros & Marlins wouldn’t touch him for free this winter." I don't get this. Are we now viewing the management of the Astros and Marlins as competent judges of ability or talent?
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Braves 8, Dodgers 5: Have a Day, Scott Van Slyke
Did I just see Hyun-Jin Ryu munching on a bag of "Giant" brand sunflower seeds?
10 months, 3 weeks ago on Dodgers @ Diamondbacks April 14, 2013: Please Be Good, Josh Beckett
I guess AJ only bats eighth when the rest of the lineup are major leaguers.

They walked Andre Ethier to get to Matt Kemp. 'Nuf said.

Good thing Abreu got out of the way, or Punto might not have been picked off.
1 year, 5 months ago on Cardinals @ Dodgers September 14, 2012: Kelly vs Capuano
Lance Lynn has been pretty bad lately. What are the odds of his having a quality start?
I'd say there're pretty good.
1 year, 5 months ago on Cardinals @ Dodgers, September 13, 2012: Lynn vs Beckett
Making the playoffs means a 163d game, very likely another game like the one they played Sunday.
I can do without that. The Dodgers aren't a playoff team.

It could be worse: if Adam Kennedy were available, the brain trust might have decided to rest Cruz.
1 year, 5 months ago on Dodgers @ Giants September 9, 2012: Are You Kershawking Kidding Me?
Colletti staying on almost makes me root for the Dodgers to lose. Kind of like when Steve Lavin coached the UCLA Bruins.
1 year, 6 months ago on Ned Colletti Will Outlive Us All
TJ Simers talked about Mattingly throwing in the towel when he let Capuano hit with the bases loaded. How about letting Kennedy do the same? How does Kennedy play in a game that you want to win?
1 year, 6 months ago on Kemp, Dodgers Knocked Out in Colorado
@el serracho @Mike Petriello A perfect Ned Colletti trade: Yasiel Puig for A-Rod.
1 year, 6 months ago on Josh Beckett Went Into Colorado and Wasn't Terrible
@lafan4life78 If he wasn't paid so much, Ned could trade him for a 40 year old third baseman.
1 year, 6 months ago on Dodgers @ Rockies August 27, 2012: Beckett vs Francis
The Bums may stink, but Puig is having a nice run: 2 for 2 so far tonight, BA approaching .400.
Puig: 4 for 4, with two doubles.

Steve Lyons. And don't forget that he's gritty, too. @Mike Petriello @Omer @el serracho

Good to hear the Dodgers didn't give up much for Blanton. Of course, Blanton isn't worth very much.
1 year, 6 months ago on Dodgers @ Pirates August 16, 2012: Blanton vs Burnett
Steve Lyons: "I don't even know how to spell 'micro-economics.'"
Stupid, and proud of it.
