Factoids of interest here are that I was lucky enough to attend both the first Dodger game in Los Angeles and the game honoring Roy Campenella, both at the Coliseum. Thank you, Daddy!
I'm embarrassed to say that I Steinered myself. There was a post on FB but it was a "this day in history" post. I'm an idiot!

Why Kemp, in particular?
1 week, 6 days ago on If not Russell Martin, then who will catch for the Dodgers?
Good morning. Did anyone notice that in the SNLA interview yesterday, Kershaw seemed to be lobbying for Kemp not to be traded?
No one accepts awards more graciously than Kershaw. Always giving credit to others.

Well, get with the program (if it's available to you).
Kershaw live on SNLA in a few minutes.
Should have been his fourth straight.
2 weeks ago on Podcast: ‘Dugout Blues’ episode 102: Zaidi, Hanley, hot stove
Hey guys! Guess what? Matt Moreno over at Dodger Nation is reporting that Friedman wants to trade one of our outfielders!
"That is, if Ramirez signs with the Yankees, they lose the No. 19 overall pick, but the Dodgers don’t get to pick No. 19. They simply get a pick at the end of the first round, or, depending on how you choose to look at it, between the first round and second round."
Why was the rule written this way? What were they trying to accomplish or avoid?

Per wiki, "An alternative term suggested "as a more descriptive name for the discipline" is interactive decision theory." Sounds like something Donny could use.

More importantly, I'm eating a turkey sandwich on white with mayo, lettuce and cranberry sauce and it's really, really delicious.

You're father is Latino, you're mother is Vietnamese? That is fooking brilliant! Gotta love LA!
Omg! I found one of my husband's Brooklyn Jewish ancestors who played on a baseball team in 1906! That was my best discovery!
Oh I can't wait to see that one. I'm researching my husband's Jewish ancestors and there are so many roadblocks, obviously. Somewhat like researching slave ancestors, the written records are so iffy.
Well, I'm recording two episodes. I guess one is from last season? Will you say which episode you're in?
That's cool. I always record that show. Who is your family?
Just so they aren't the a Death Star...
Kinda makes me sad.
I'm watching all those cooking competitions on various channels. And The Voice. Sick, I know. How many more days until preseason ball begins?
I'm so hot to see Friedman DO something, I'll take this move as really exciting news. Thanks, Mike!

That seems a bit unfair. His big contract happened at the same time one could expect a decline due to ageing. That's on Colletti, don't you think?

They could have chosen not to address the question. that they answered so quickly makes me believe them. Sort of. But it's curious that Madden left so abruptly.
1 month ago on Joe Maddon is now a free agent, are the Dodgers next?
hi guys. This is a curious development, especially how quickly the denials were issued. Maddon wasn't getting along with Rays management? Was there any hint of that prior to Friedman coming to LA?
His feewings are hurt. Poor baby.

Fortunately, that includes me but I definitely feel the pain of those who are denied access. That should be a much bigger story than it is, because it shames not only the Dodgers but all of MLB. (Steps off soapbox)

It pisses me off.

Yes. Bull penises.
And they won't get any more if they can't provide decent programming people want to pay for, for 4-5 months of the year.
I felt that way about trading Mike Piazza. I got over it, but the scar is still there.
SNLA is really boring. How are they going to fill their schedule between now and February? I haven't seen them even covering the Friedman news.
Are we going to make a list of "triggers" to avoid now?
I'm terrified! It's hard to imagine Matt Kemp in another uniform.
Oh! You can watch the actual game on regular Fox channel. Thank god! That was painful!
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Are The Dodgers Really Going To Dump Payroll?
Is this the worst broadcast of a baseball game, ever? Have broadcasters completely given up learning to call a game? Is baseball so boring, the screen has to be split between a panel of dufuses and the actual game? Just sayin'.
Why would anybody want to play with the Cubs when they could play for the Dodgers?
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Russell Martin: Former Dodger, Future Dodger?
Maybe Kershaw would be happy just having AJ around in some coaching or exec position, and doesn't really need AJ to catch for him to be happy. Kind of like a race horse has a barn companion. Not to imply that AJ is. Dog or cat...or goat, even.
So, about Andrew Friedman...would we? Would HE?

I'm gonna go binge watch...something. :(
