Fire Jim Tracy

Blogging Is Like Crack

Must...step...away...from...the...computer...

But I feel compelled to tell Jim Tracy something. Jason Jennings is pitching. He has 13 walks this season already.

Choi, Choi, Choi, Choi, Choi, Choi, Choi, Choi, Choi, Choi, Choi. Not Nakamura. And certainly not Grabowski. Choi.

Thank you.

MORE CRACK: Who are the Dodgers supposed to beat? They play the National League West a billion times. If the Giants, Padres, D-Backs all suck, who was supposed to win the National League West. Why is that any different than what the "guys at ESPN.com and CNNSI.com" are saying about the Dodgers being in the playoffs. The Rockies? Simers, stop being stupid.

MORE CRACK: Well, that was fun. Before the game starts, enjoy this bon mot.

MORE CRACK: And Choi it is. This ship will either sail or sink together.

MORE CRACK: I suspect the boys are tired. I would be. Maybe they can pull it together late, but what they likely need is a nice long nap.

MORE CRACK: Clubhouse rule that Weaver doesn't come out until he gives up at least eight runs.

MORE CRACK: Go home and get some sleep, guys. Come back tomorrow and let's go over .500 on this roadstand.

  • Choi is hitting .304 since his 0 for 11 start. Grabowski and Nakamura are both looking up and seeing Mendoza. I don't think there's anyway he can't start Choi at this point. (This is Jim Tracy we're talking about, however.)

  • All my years in So Cal reading the Times led me to a simple understanding as to the depth of their sportswriter's analysis:

    Were they a puddle I happened to fall into face-first, there is no risk of drowning.

    The depth of analysis from the likes of Simers(especially) et al is stunning. Stunning I say!

  • I saw Depodesta as having a 3 year plan:

    1st year: begin to rebuild team in his own image, while staying competitive. check.
    2nd year: become the class of the division. advance in playoffs. check (so far).
    3rd year: become the class of the NL. advance to world series.

    I'm excited to see what Depodesta is able to do this july 31, and this offseason. I see no reason why next year the Dodgers can't become the best team in the league.
