Dodger fan since the Great Infield Era. Now as a dad, teaching my daughter the heartbreak, and occasional joys of rooting for the Blue. Glad she will never know the McCourt ownership debacle!
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.
Must have been bored sitting in the tattoo shop!

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!

@Disgruntled Goat I stand corrected, Uribe is the excuse!
At least Gwynn had an excuse....Uribe?

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?

@IBBFTW perhaps its the fact Uribe is a mole for Selig!

@Mike Petriello @fallenduck plus he's not from SF, so why would Ned care.
@capnsparrow @LakerDodger24 @DBrim @The_Real_Paul @Mike this sure beats the last winter meetings!eats
@capnsparrow @DBrim @The_Real_Paul @Mike then screw him....buy Greinke and Sanchez and move on....we got the dinero after all.
@capnsparrow @DBrim @The_Real_Paul @Mike Petello give em Gordon, Hatarang and Cap
@DBrim @The_Real_Paul @capnsparrow @Mike Petriello I'd hate to trade for a guy who may have had his last great yr, and watch Lee become dominant.
@DBrim @capnsparrow @The_Real_Paul @Mike Petriello you either commit to your Farm a little, or turn into the NYY!
@DBrim And vice versa
Some guy named Miller says a 'source' says LAD would put up Gordon and Lee for Dickey. Gordon fine, but not Zach! Noooo Ned!!!!!
I just awoke in a cold sweat. Brian Wilson was a Dodger and he was rubbing MEllis' head for good luck.....WITH the beard!!!!! Arghhhhhhh
