my email to dish network....start filling the inboxes folks
I just want to know what the best way for me to request that the upcoming channel SportsNet LA (Dodgers channel) be available the moment it launches? I don't care one iota if I have to pay extra for it. I don't however want to be forced to purchase programming I don't want/need to get the Dodgers Channel.
I know that it's not even set to launch until Feb 25 but with the Lakers a few years back launched their network there was a delay, games were missed, and that wont be acceptable for me. I literally bleed Dodger blue and would be very displeased if I were unable to receive the channel once it airs.

@VinScullyisthegreatest @I'm PUIG!!! PUIG BALLING!!! yeah, you have a point, I guess I'll just never get over the Santana trade....but even then Blake got all the credit for plugging the giant gaping hole that is 3rd base for this team adequately enough....and there's always the beard....never mind my above comments....I love Ned when it comes to trades.....
@EephusBlue @I'm PUIG!!! PUIG BALLING!!! @VinScullyisthegreatest @moneynow27 ok, point taken....
@EephusBlue @VinScullyisthegreatest @moneynow27 @I'm PUIG!!! PUIG BALLING!!! now it just seems like you guys are defending Colletti here....#confused
@EephusBlue @I'm PUIG!!! PUIG BALLING!!! I keep forgetting that was Ned and NOT Paul Depot
This is the first time Ned hasn't totally fucked the future to take a flier on someone, I concur it's not the worst thing ever....maybe, just maybe the reclamation department can fix this tool and he might help....or maybe just maybe in 2020 we get some ROI from the confusing pick slot money....either way a hearty "Good Job Ned"?! from this formerly terrified Doyer fanatic.....
@Capnsparrow @I'm PUIG!!! PUIG BALLING!!! Then i don't have an explanation for the shitty bullpen performance
1 year, 4 months ago on Braves 8, Dodgers 1: Bad Team is Bad
@theotherplaza @I'm PUIG!!! PUIG BALLING!!! venting
Looking at the record with 100 to go, I figure these boys would have to win between 65-70 of the last 100 games to make a run at the division. Barring major upgrades in the production of the 5-8 hole in the lineup, that's just nor going to happen. We're at the point where injuries and inconsistent bullpen useage* and performance** have all but destroyed the championship dreams that danced through my pre-WBC head. I'd be more frustrated with Donnie Buntball if all the players he was supposed to have were under-performing, but I cant be mad at him that a minor league lineup can't compete with Major League Division Leading pitching.
truly, my beef point is with Ned, not just for the assembly of such a poorly performing team, but just horrid Roster Managemet in general. Maybe he's not being informed correctly by his training staff. Maybe Donnie and Ned aren't on the same page. Maybe he's just the biggest Troll in History planted by the Emporer of SF who forsaw the sale/giant payroll/high expectations,
It's not mathematically too late for them to turn it around, and believe me nobody's Dodger Blue Boner would stand more erectly than mine should they figure it out, but the pessimist/realist in me just can't see it happening.
Hopefully Guggenheimershteinbacherschwartzenville Group will make a top down change and future rosters will perform better
*Donnie's fault for leaving Paco out there for 40 pitches, continuing to rely on an obviously less than average Belisario, agreeing the brandon league should be anything other than flown directly into the sun
**nobody talks about the impact it can have but losing Ken Powell as bullpen coach probably has more to do with it than we'd like to admit. kinda like a special teams coordinator in oblong-pigskin-toss, when the good ones move to a new team, said team seems to figure it out. the same goes for bullpen coaches. I don't claim to have any inside info/stats to back up this claim. but it could be part of the overall explanation for this team being 7.5 back 62 games in
@systemguy85 I want them to go for the brothers Seager, probably take a mint to pry Kyle out of SEA tho..... I just kinda like the idea of it....of course there's the possibility that they could be the brothers Upton and one would just flat suck....but if the tradeout for #dingers might be worth it....
1 year, 4 months ago on Vin Scully Makes Yasiel Puig Even More Fun
I think what I love the most about it is that he almost catches HanRam.....that, and Clayton's dumbfounded disbelief....I don't think I'll ever get tired of the sound of 40000 didgers fans collectively shitting their pants with excitement..... chills up the spine every time
1 year, 4 months ago on Who Is Responsible For the Never-Ending String of Dodger Injuries?
Wonder if McFuck hadn't have brought in Mr Snakeskin Cowboy Boots but let DePosition stay in place if we would have had any more or less success.... Too bad Heinein's Zeb + Deedy Carter cant come pick me up in "Gay Deciever" and travel to the alternate universe where that's the reality.....ho hum
So really, as one might have known had they been paying attention over the last decade, Ned Colletti Sucks.....I'm calling the T-Shirt printing buddy I have now.....
My pops bought me Kershaw Tickets as an early Father's day present!!! Sad that I cant' think of them as Dodgers tickets, just Kershaw. But now that all the puiging is coming we might actually make a lineup with the 1-2 Lefty Righty punch that we thought we were getting with KemVp/A-Gon that we used to actually have with Manny/Kemp/Dre before Dre became just horrid....of course in a perfect world his puigness could DH but then if there was no P in the lineup we couldn't have the #buntfest..... SVS, we hardly knew ye....

i can go off topic too....lulz
but he's only hitting .244 vs lefties this season....so he's human....FUDGE I was under the impression he was a GOD.
last ten games....yeah, I'll take some of that please....
@Disgruntled Goat @mixdr077 @Mike Petriello understood....I won't look for a goat to add in my "circles" then...the sad thing is I think had they NOT hyped it up and just kinda freed it upon the world G+ wouldn't take so much grief.....KINDA like every move Colletti has ever made
@DodgersGuru @Disgruntled Goat @Drank CF well yeah that's the argument FOR to Puig, but the not to Puig argument is convincing too....I don't really care, I've all but written off this season with the cruddy excuse for 1/3 of the roster in place
@Drank CF @DodgersGuru correction he's bat flipping at called third strikes now too....
@Disgruntled Goat (Vin wants me in CF) @mixdr077 sorry goat, I had no idea. they loaded it onto my S3 and I don't hate it. The Dodgers community circle is alright. Half the time here I feel like there's like 6 peeps that post and mostly NOT about the Dodgers which sucks because @Mike Petriello is friggin' amazing as a baseball blogger. Mike and Weisman are really the only ones I bother to read, sometimes over at TBLA they'll have a varrying perspective, but their commenting section is piss poor at best. G+ allows me to rant during Dodgers games from my phone whereas the mobile livefyre won't even pretend to let me get in with you's guys during a game. SO that, dear goat, is how I came to be a somewhat steady use of the interwebs that once housed your daily ewe news or whatever it is besides MSTI that a goat of your stature peruses. My apologies
@Disgruntled Goat (Vin wants me in CF) @mixdr077 why no likey google?
@Mike Petriello @efb might I suggest the name, Hashtag? That way when you are trending on twitter it will be #Hashtag
it won't let me copy and paste saying it's maliformed content, but I think I spoke for many when I put on Google+ my opinion(s) on the to Puig or not to Puig situation....
So, my boss got a partybus to go to the game tonight. Managers from three different locations (myself included) are going to Anaheim tonight, There's nine of us total and its 50/50 fandom split with 1 Tigers fan who swears she doesn't care who wins she just wants to go have some dranks. On the one hand I'm excited to see Weaver/Cap and see if the Azul can keep this up. On the other, I hate going to the Bro/BroHo fest that is the Big A (which part of Los Angeles is Anaheim in again?) At any rate if you're going to get suckered into attending a game in yuppie-ville it might as well be free. Matter of fact: this will be the fourth game I've attended at Gene Autrey's play-yard. 1987-89 Wally Joyner era game with Mom's boyfriend at the time of which I remember more about the Ice Cream sundae served in what ever team helmet you choose (I got LAD just to be vengeful) Opening day Against Texas the final season Mark Tex was with Tex ( a regular at my bar was trying to "spread the red" and bought our entire bar staff a ticket.....I got really drunk and ended up spending the night in a hotel room with a newly married couple from Australia, who have since become good penpals!) And the year that Garland was with ANA he got tickets for my buddy+3 and I happened to be dumb enough to go (my friend's sister was on the National Olympic Softball team and is engaged to Garland) So if I can plan it right I still won't give Arte any of MY own personal dough. Just means gotta tie one on at the Hooters before headin' in!!!!!!
1 year, 5 months ago on Dodgers 3, Angels 0: It’s More Fun to Have Hyun-Jin Ryu Than Joe Blanton
Sucky that today is the off day and then they gotta fly late night (although at least not redeye) to LA to take on the suddenly red-hot brewers instead of having NY series today through wed...little things like this catch me as just another way the BB Gods mess with a team....
1 year, 6 months ago on The Luis Cruz Experiment Just Isn’t Working Out
@capnsparrow maybe, but none of the guys we have in house are appealing even a little bit...if gugenheimers hadn't dropped 230mil on payroll in an obvious attempt to win now (although poorly led by their inherited snakeskin-cowboy-boot-wearin' GM) then I would be all for just bringin Corey to the Show and seeing what we got, but we know that's not going to happen.....Cruz is NOT a ML 3B, HanRam might be best suited there now but ego and whatnot wont let that happen, so Rolen, even rolen just cashing a check, might be a good fit anyway....but that might just be my pipe dream....
5 GB in the standings even this early in the season is NOT acceptable for this team PERIOD, colorado pitching will NOT keep this up but AZ and SF aren't gonnna turn into a pumpkin tomorrow and we've already dropped series to BOTH....i'm disgusted and too passionate and I am smart enough to realize that 17 games does not a season make, but trends are trends and this team is trending DOWN!
@Lobo the a's got casper wells so@Ely K might be an OAK fan?
@AnotherBrian really he should have started the season in the cleanup spot....the idea that he'll get more PA's battting one spot higher has never made all that much sense to me....the difference is like 20 PA's over the course of 100 games....
So any word on whether or not the admittedly less than ideal Scott Rolen is still available?
@Dave Pomerantz @mixdr077 @PWEEEEG davebob wins....mixdr wife tolerates my passion for baseball but can't even pretend to give a poo.....which is cool because that's exactly how I feel about every single show on the food network.....
1 year, 7 months ago on Hanley Ramirez Needs Surgery, And We Ponder A Reality In Which The Choice Is Between Dee Gordon & Juan Uribe
@Mike Petriello this doesn't mean Ned gonna Ned up and sign the corpse of Scott Rolen and his .245/.318/.398 to a ludicrous deal, does it?
@PWEEEEG @mixdr077 is that a good thing or a bad thing? just me and the most beautiful woman I could ever get to say "yes" to a romp on our honeymoon....
You know it's this kind of thing that has me worried we're going to get the same result from our overpaid superstars as the lakers have....injury to HanRam=injury to Pau...Crawford=Blake (injury wise and value to team if "on")....Kemp=Dwight Howard (when playing "right" an absolute BEAST, but still lingering issues from major off season surgery) Kershaw is Kobe....
@Dang88 @mixdr077 @capnsparrow I don't know, maybe it's because I've got 5 kids, maybe it's because i was in the friggin' 6th grae the last time the Dodgers won it all, but patience is a virtue that his literally been corkscrewed into my soul, so I was just preachin' a bit.... but for now I knida agree: Fuck Dee....
@dodgersdan I've actually thought since our outfield is relatively deep that they might as well put him in instructional league at the hot corner and see if anything sticks.....positive's and neegatives for that scenario though.... and unlike a video game, you cant just edit a player's defense to make them not suck....
@Dang88 @capnsparrow what is he like 25? not everyone is Harper/Trout.....what if we'd not waited for Matty Kemp to put it all togther?
@JackedNate can i like this comment twice? although it's been said that Beltre left more gauranteed $ on the table in LA to go be the man in SEA.....who knows....but think of all the possibilities had he never left us!!!!
@NativeWharf Yeah pitch track had that out of the zone too....maybe that's why when I see him I think of Vlad Guerrero....

1 year, 9 months ago on On the Continued Existence of Juan Uribe
@Dang88 Great topic....made me go back and look up old box scores....I discovered that the friday I was born was the middle game in a 3 game set with MTL in which the Dodgers got swept with 2 MTL pitchers throwing the full 9 inninigs and then on Sunday the Dodgers hosted the Mets for the 1st of a 2 game set.....man the schedule was wacky back then!!!!
@Dang88 in a side note, my dad took mom to the Hospital on way home but i wasn't born till the next morning 7/22/77 and when the hospital staff told him to home, He went to see Star Wars for the first time
@Dang88 1977 I was such a fan that I forced my mom into early labor while they were attending a Dodgers Game (the expos won 4-0 with some dude named steve rogers throwing a CG SHO for MTL) and I've been a fan ever since
@Amart652 somebody please ask him about Uribe...I'll be out of town next week or I would go and heckle Ned myself
