An inconsistent contributor to DD/MSTI for a couple of years. There's a very strange bug on my keyboard right now. Kind of looks like a tadpole crossed with a shrimp, crossed with a beetle.
@BlueMarvin Imagine how confused you'll be when the Sox trade Hanley and Bogaerts to Philly for Hamels, and then the Phils hold onto Rollins.

@Diane. Ned Colletti's new position coordinator Whenever I am in mixed company, I am sure to refer to Lester as Mo, hoping to get a "who is Mo?"

@Dave! (Or Justin Turner, Maybe) Congratulations! Might I suggest requesting at least 10 free tickets before complying and having your identity stripped of you?

Remember when moving Hanley to 3B was forbidden because of potential attitude impacts?

@worddot It says something that the stats that are used for support are advanced stats, not traditional stats.Also, this reflects a clear deviation from the "hire guys for past saves" philosophy that was known to be Colletti 2013.
@Mike Petriello I'll try to say this as nicely as possible...nope.
@internet baseball fan potato friend what about sour belts?
@I Digesti Adrian is known as a crazy mariachi.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJIIXJm7k_k
@Dustin Nosler Greinke is my favorite current Dodger, so I would definitely be bummed.
@capnsparrow After reading this article, I'm excited to see a deal where under the surface there's more logic than expected, rather than less.
@NoHitWin2008 Wordpress is pretty much the thing that people use. Is that what you mean by free blog service? Also, share the link when its out, that's something my wife and I would be interested in.

@LiterallyPFP @Raul Franklin There's another word for that kind of 4-way deal...it's a nasty word.
@0ptimus @Raul Franklin Excellent.
Am I the first to offer this: Andre Ethier is from Arizona, and therefore this deal will happen #analysis

@Diane, famous writer. great ratios. That is not at all creepy in the slightest.
@capnsparrow Yeah. Maybe this could be the start of everybody getting to watch a mediocre club instead of a few people getting to watch a pretty good club.

@the great dick tater I mean, sure, he's an improvement. Point taken. He's also one of the most anti-fun players in baseball.That being said, if we'd had an outstanding pitch framer, then maybe Kershaw gets out of the 7th inning in game 1.So, ok.

@HunterStricklandsOedipalComplex A 3 year deal for a RP is like a lifetime deal on an albatross.

@moneynow27 Which Guerrero would play second, you just said "A Guerrero". I want to know which one, clearly you don't mean Alexander Gu-error-o,
Montero is a mega-nah.

@BIah If you want him to be done at any time, just say "it's clear that you are concerned for your sister. We are doing well together. I do appreciate your letting me know about your concerns. I'll let you know if I need more input on our relationship. I'll see you around." If he persists, then say: "I have to now go over here to this place where you cannot follow." (this can be said in any way you see fit.).
@FigurativelyTymathee @TheConman @Dustin Nosler Well, he doesn't strike out as much as most Cubs, so there's that.
1 week, 6 days ago on Dodgers Reportedly Add Three More To Front Office: Bream, Carr, Finley
I'd be interested to know if the availability of truly outstanding scouting can make the difference in finding a hidden weakness in a player. I am particularly thinking about the work Kershaw is undoubtedly going to do in breaking down Carpenter and finding the areas in his strike zone that can be exploited.
@Ker$haw$Dodger$ Seems like a stretch.
2 weeks ago on Hanley Ramirez Declines Qualifying Offer, Obviously
I am looking forward to less of that image of Hanley with his tongue out. Kind of grosses me out. He's normally a good-looking guy.
@Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) @Raul Franklin @moneynow27 Well, that's nice because I like Kemp.My point is more that I like the "brain trust" and want them to look for good stuff out there in the whole world without worrying too much if it all comes together in 1 move, 100 moves, or 0 moves.I assume nothing about who they'll sign, trade, keep, or 'get'.
@Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) If the Dodgers had already signed people without a set Front Office, they would be the Rockies.
@Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) No. I'm kind of amazed that the front office is this solid already.

@Moderately Excited Towel Manley Ramirez.
@Technogit The goal is to make the world more fucking complicated because that is the only way things happen.
@Subtle Euphemism aka Jonathan Lingo Ask Johnny Gomes.
@Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) @moneynow27 It's not like trading one guy doesn't mean we can't sign or trade for another guy in a totally separate deal.
@moneynow27 I still agree with Mike: CC is surprisingly valuable, especially because he is owed significantly less than Kemp in total.
