Fire Jim Tracy

Name Change

Boy, it's all the rage out here. Jerry and I have been going over it like we didn't have finals this week. Though with the Dodgers destroying what's left of our study time, we were basically acting like that anyway. Good thing we have jobs!

Anyway, Jerry's last best idea, and a possible compromise that satisfies kids, adults, dogs, and LA Times conspiracy theorists (that's my role, I guess) is:

The Grassy Schmoll

I'd like some confirmation from the outside world before we commit to that. Thank you.

The Management


  • I don't know about that name - shouldn't it at least communicate some connection to the Dodgers?

  • I give up. Why can't we just leave it as Fire Jim Tracy, again, Jerry?

  • Steve Schmoll (who is a Dodger reliever, Anonymous) is simply too good of a name to pass up.

  • aw, you guys can do better than that. How about "Things Bill Plaschke will never say"? or Eff Bill Plaschke? or Milton Bradley's Game Room? or The Ghost of Adrian Beltre? just a thought...rgds, will
    PS: i like posting here...there's a lot less competition than over there at Dodger Thoughts, LOL

  • Will,

    If you missed it (which is possible -- since I've been posting like a 10-year-old with ADD), we had an earlier post with some ideas. I'm trying to convince Jerry with Dodgers Indeed, but it's not working out.

  • Come on guys, think about the possibilities. Here's the full name I've got in my head:

    The Grassy Schmoll: How the CIA Killed Kennedy, Tracy Cost Us the Game, and Plaschke Killed the Paragraph

  • More possibilities:

    "The Grassy Schmoll: Coming at You Hard, Fast, and Below the Belt (Like a Schmoll Heater)"

    I'm telling you, it can't be beat.

  • Fire Jim Tracy is better.

    How about Hire Jim Tracy? That'd be very PC of you :)

    How about Fire Dan Evans? It'd be hard to piss anybody off then :)

    Maybe something about loaning McCourt some money? Could be funny...

    A rotating numeric title based on how much the current interest payment on McCourt's loans is? :)

    A play on DePodesta's Ivy League education? Maybe DIT - Dodger Institute of Technology? Stealing Harvard? Harvard Yard? Chavez Yard? Harvard Ravine? :)

    The DePo ERA+? :) McCourt ERA? :)

    The Home DePo? :)

    Surely there's something better than naming it after a relief pitcher who might not even be here after everyone else gets healthy.

    I'dstick with Fire Jim Tracy -- Anybody who doesn't get it doesn't deserve to read your blog anyway :)

  • OK Jerry.....the full names enliven it somewhat but what do you do when Schmoll inevitably goes down when Penny/Gagne/Alvarez come up?

    Steve, saw the request for names the other day but couldn't come up with anything witty at the time...not to say that my suggestions were witty...maybe i need a couple cocktails first, ha ha

    whatever you call it, i'll keep reading. rgds, will

  • Our public is speaking and its message is crystal clear, Jerry. The people want their FJT!
