I very much agree with you. I will say and I don't think it was his fault, but if Beltre could have been retained most folks would probably think much different of Depo. I met the guy at my sisters wedding. He was a friend of her husbands family. We got to talking and mentioned how he was not allowed to say much and I am like are you allowed to nod and he laughed yes what do you want to ask..I said do you regret loosing Beltre. He said of course. He added but sadly I knew he was lost before it even began. He then said nice to meet you and complimented my sister and then dodger talk was over

@Mike Petriello If Loney were to stay then I'd have to reconsider just how much bullshit in my life I want to put up with anymore.
2 years ago on So When Do We Get to Be Worried About Andre Ethier?
I have not picked up a bat that wasn't plastic in 10 years. I could drink 6 Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA's. Then smoke three fat bowls and still hit better than Uribe vs anyone and Ethier vs lefties

If we all know that late in game Ethier will kill rally's vs lefties don't they? I mean even Ethier knows. He should man up and ask to be taken out of the clean up spot.
@Mike Petriello I hear ya. You know what I meant though. Love your site Mike.

@Sangro Azul Those young survivor kids won't work as hard as Kent or respect the game. They better not move the campfire
sad for you that you had to write all this. It's a total no brainer.
I realize they are super loaded but aren't they getting sick of eating all of Coletti's mistakes? Or spending a shitload to cover for em?

I wouldn't mind a Bellisario phantom DL trip. One good move the dodgers have made IMO and maybe it's just random is moving Hanley back to SS. Happy and productive...As a SS this year his OPS is 1.009 and at 3b it's .766..plus now Gordon can just be a pinch runner when he returns.

@kempsbat @thereal_dv well is now a .655 OPS???? (since the all star break for Loney)

@Cadtalfryn @EephusBlue @Frank J Lapidus @Dang88 I wonder how Ned's 2012 (2006) all star team would do vs Neds 2006 (2002) All star team. I'll ask Kobe Bryant since he knows which dream team will beat who..

@EephusBlue Did you know. Cause I sure the hell didn't that in July (sure only 38 at bats but still) Adam has an OPS of .898.
can we remove Coletti off the roster?? he decided 3 guys should start in 2012 and pay them a combined 18 million bucks. If those 3 (Rivera, Loney, Uribe) had played to league avg we would most likely be in first place and maybe not have needed to add more payroll and trade more potential.
@VietnamDodger @phattonez7 @The_Real_Paul @Gilbert_Venge @JoeyCaltabellotta I went to Chico State in the early 90's and it wasn't everywhere yet. Just there at the brewery and at the local liquor store. After my first pale ale i was in love. It's lasted about 20 years (and counting) this love.

@Frank J Lapidus @Crow T Robot @Frank This is why Eric Karros is my least favorite dodger of all time. It's only May. No need to panic. I mean June. Er, July. Were working hard, staying close. No time to panic. It's August, there is plenty of time. It's only September and.........and....time to plan my vacation.

@Deuce @phattonez7 @Crow T Robot @dustybakersoldtoothpick yah if your gonna have a crappy hitter playing, may as well play the one with good defense. Speaking of crap, Loney since the all star break is hitting over .300! With an OBP of .295! How does that work exactly. He is hitting 60 points higher in the second half and his OPS is 1 point better. A whopping .644 second half OPS vs the mashing Rivera at .712
@Crow T Robot @Frank that's exactly what he said. he said if he was a player on the team he would be pissed that Donnie isn't going ballistic and that he would call a players only meeting and go ballistic.
@WestonTaylor @Cadtalfryn right, like CY Young candidate James MacDonald for 2 months of Dotel? If we had either guy still maybe they could be traded for a bat. joking on Dotel of course
2 years, 2 months ago on 2012 Midseason Grades: Offense
@Cadtalfryn when u take stabs in the dark u always can come up with a few. All three have been great so far. Ned decided to have Gordon at SS, Uribe at 3b, Loney at 1b and Rivera in LF. And those choices have been awful.
Coletti's overall grade is an F. Hopefully he is fired. If not then this will be the last year he can hide and say Frank made me do it.
