@The Monocle you think Uribe has any idea who that is?

@efb @Mike Petriello not really. They're very good about bending down, and the rows are all a foot or so higher than the one in front of it.


That said, I usually go see fun or classic things there -- seeing "Die Hard" was amazing -- rather than first run, because you don't mind if you miss a word or two. But it's usually not a problem.

Just bought tickets to Birdman at my favorite movie theater in the world for Sunday.

@Purple Drank we don't know if Maddon wanted the Dodger job, of course

@TheConman @HunterStricklandsOedipalComplex @Mike Petriello no, it is. I asked Dirk H ayhurst about that once. He said definitely.

In a clubhouse poll, it was once revealed that of the 25 players on the Red Sox, 24 were Republicans and Kapler was the one Democrat.[57]

Feels kind of icky, but I guess I need to write about Kapler?

@cvrinc @Mike Petriello I don't think you're reading that right. They aren't mad with Maddon. They'd be mad with the Cubs for dumping someone respected after one year.


I disagree with that completely, of course. You'd upgrade a SS or a bullpen. Why not a manager?

@cvrinc well, your statement isn't really correct. The Cubs did talk to Renteria.

@DBrim +20% "homegrown Dodger" boost never fails

@dappler218 @Mike Petriello i wouldn't say that. But there's a 99% chance he will be a free agent sometime soon, so who knows if he's back or not. Even if he is, he's thrown like a dozen innings in two years.


If he's in the mix for anything, it's the minor leagues, or maaaybe the bullpen.

Why do you and others presume that Ethier is now a replacement-level player? He's not worth his contract, but 1 substandard year from a 32-year old does not automatically imply doom.

@Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) @Mike Petriello There's no question that more than zero other teams will be willing to give him a minor league deal.

@Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) @Mike Petriello sure, but we have no idea if he wants to stay or not.

@Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) @Mike Petriello i guess i would turn that around and ask you why in the world you think he would be? He's almost certainly going to be a free agent in a few days and very well might not be a Dodger. Even if he is, he's thrown like 10 innings in two years.

@HunterStricklandsOedipalComplex @Mike Petriello Not sure I follow. I don't think Lee was better than McCarthy in 2014, nor do I think he will be in 2015.

@Disgruntled Goat @Mike Petriello like, does he really think that Lackey was a free agent who happened to sign for $500k?

@deblueLostintheWilderness my guess is "yes" but also "not specific to the world series."

@deblueLostintheWilderness it's true because it means that the wild card team wouldn't always have to face the "best" division winner, which makes it less bad to be a wild card.

@deblueLostintheWilderness the problem with that is that it pushes baseball into November, which I dislike.


The obvious answer is "shorter regular season," but that's never happening either.
