In hindsight, DePo wasn't as bad as I felt at the time. What really hurt him was what hurts a lot of absolute number crunchers, communication skills. LoDuca found out about the trade from media. And bringing Uncle Miltie in when there were clear signs prior to the signing didn't help. Dan should have stayed.

I never said Ned was consistent, just that he probably uses that quirky parameter in his complex, and albeit, strange decision making!

Actually, as much as sbermetric guys vomit at this, I do believe Ned takes into account So Cal natives. It's happened way too often.

Ok, perhaps, but in a tight race, an Achilles heel can do it.

And in a move that may cost the Dodgers the pennant, simply resigning Punto or Ellis would have been the wisest course. Assuming they had a backup plan was obviously unfounded! More like Ned was distracted by other shiny objects!

I suspect adding bench strength, because outside Van Slyke, that group has less pop than a flat soda!

Heard Kasten on the moronic Max and Marcellus show today, and he basically said they had to spend all this money to makeup for the previous owner....but were still committed to player development. So, how much have they spent on the Farm, I wonder?
