I've been away all day and I know there have been 900+ comments so far...but back to the original topic--I know we 'stat nerds' love to dissect FIP and wRC+ etc. But isn't the goal of trades to win the World Series?? So so far I would say Boston got the better deal. They won it the next year while we are stuck with all these guys who will never be as good as they once were and will be clogging up the field for years to come. I think that should have been Mike's first sentence, not just an after thought at the end

I know we are not supposed to be political here, but isn't this tomahawk chop more offensive than 'Washington Redskins'
2 weeks, 4 days ago on Dodgers 6, Braves 4: So Long, Atlanta, and Your Awful Tomahawk Chop
@Disgruntled Goat @davstein48 NO way!!!. There is already some Oscar buzz about Shrknado II. Judd Hirsch, John Casavettes, Al Roker , Kelly and Strahan. This is an alstar cast, just like a Woodt Allen movie.
4 weeks ago on Dodger Catchers Continuing To Struggle
OK, and my other question. Did you catch Sharknado II or Sharktopus vs Ptericuda. At least that made for an interesting weekend?
I'm sorry if this was covered already, but talking about struggling.... Now that Ethier has struckout about 80 straight times. What's up with him?. I haven't seen those ABs. Is he just up there swinging like every pitch is going to be a fast ball and the hell with it if its not? Or what
@Hoze @davstein48 But I am feeling we really need a #4 AND #5 starter.

My wife says that I panic to soon. Well if Becket has another crappy start I will be panicked
@Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year) @davstein48 I sure hope so
1 month ago on Congratulations, You Survived the Deadline
I don't think the plan will be to go with Becket and Haren to the end
I'm sorry. but I feel there is a 50-50 chance that Uggla hits a homer tonite. :(

Hey, can we beat winning teams? I guess the next month will tell

Hey the Braves just ate 18 million and dumped Uggla, we could do the same.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Second Half Issue: Dan Haren Wants That Vesting Option
My 2 cents. If Haren pitches well, and is a small factor in us making the playoffs........then who cares about 10 million next year. He'll probably be hurt then anyway
@Tony Fernandez (MSTY Most Informative Poster) @davstein48 @Dang88 Billingsley had grit, he wanted to play and not get some sissy operation.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Should The Dodgers Trade For Jonathan Papelbon?
@Tony Fernandez (MSTY Most Informative Poster) @davstein48 @Dang88 Every ten years or so 3 white guys come along with no grit
@Tony Fernandez (MSTY Most Informative Poster) @Dang88 @davstein48 yes every ten years or so a white guy comes along with no grit
@Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year) @Dang88 @davstein48 Sure now he'll want us to trade Moody Kemp for him
@Purple Drank (2014 MSTY Poster of the Year) @Dang88 @davstein48 OK that makes him good enough for me.
I just want to know if he has grit
Been busy, but never gone
2 months ago on The Chemistry Of the Dodgers Catching The Giants
We all know the best chemistry is winning. Billy Martin had great chemistry on his teams. They were explosions
Re taxes: Although washington has no income tax, I believe he still has to pay state tax in all the other states he plays in during the year

@PagansOedipalComplex @davstein48 That's my point it is an indication of poor play, not a cause
10 months, 1 week ago on 2013 Dodgers in Review #1: C A.J. Ellis
@brincon like what?
@EephusBlue @Disgruntled Goat @davstein48 I don't think you can drop 30 points and say it was bad luck. Maybe he played the whole season with 3 broken fingers. But not bad luck
@Disgruntled Goat @davstein48 sure some, in a game or two, but not a whole season. It seems to me when a player is in a good groove he is hitting the ball hard so more balls are line drives and fall in. When his timing his off he hits more weak shots that are caught and turned into outs
I am sorry but I cannot accept that aplayer had a bad year BECAUSE of a drop in BABIP. That useless stat is an INDICATION of a bad year not a cause.
Ok so everyone else is back. So they are saying we like how the third base coach is working. We like How Lopes is helping the running game. We like the progress of the pitching staff. We like the hitting. But we just don't like your managing decisions.

we need a new site next year
@ JohnM but we have to swing at these fastballs that are close
are we forgetting to swing?
I know he's the pitcher, but what was he looking for out there?
I don't feel I can remain a baseball fan if this change is made

I'd take Kershw over the splits
10 months, 4 weeks ago on 2013 NLDS Game 4: So It’s Clayton Kershaw
@LA_Woman @ManBearDave @davstein48 @TommyDieterich @Disgruntled Goat He I think Walt Alston skipped Drysdale in game 7 of Series and Pitched Koufax on 2 days rest. He won and we won that series. Sandy retired at age 31. Just ramblin' thoughts
@TommyDieterich @Disgruntled Goat maybe we win and later on throw a tired Kershaw out there again in a must win. Who knows. Time will tell.
@TommyDieterich @davstein48 @Disgruntled Goat A win is great. I think its a bad decision to go on 3 days rest so early in the playoffs when its not in a must win game.
@ManBearDave @davstein48 @TommyDieterich @Disgruntled Goat I would have felt more secure seeing a rested Kershaw game 5 in Atlanta
@TommyDieterich @davstein48 @Disgruntled Goat yes if lose Greinke goes next
@TommyDieterich @Disgruntled Goat @davstein48 if we win tonite
3 days rest after 125 pitches
win or lose I think this is a bad decision.
@3Mayday3 @davstein48 I'll save it for next game

@SpaceDodger (ecstatic math cat) too many comments
