Frank McCourt chats with fans

In case you missed it, Dodger Owner and Chairman Frank McCourt spent an hour yesterday taking questions from fans on dodgers.com.

292 Comments

And….this thread is empty, because although the fans had plenty of questions, Frank didn’t answer any of them.

Surprise, surprise….like Frank gives a shit what we think.
.
I hate to say this but, for Bozo of the game I’ll choose Billz.

For the most non-productive player of the game, I’ll choose Fuckal.

Well, with Happ pitching(3-5, 5.23 era) you’d think we could score some runs tonight.

I like your positive thinking :-?

That is until you look at our lineup!!

LMAO…I know!

Who would have known?!…Gibbons with a HR!

Well, that’s what Ned signed him for!! We’ll take it. WTG Gibbons!!

So how is it back in 2006?

Here is but one excerpt from McCourt’s chat. This is not for the faint hearted:

meloco912: Frank, how do you plan on changing the mind set of us naysayers who question your ownership?

McCourt: I can talk about it until I’m blue in the face, no pun intended, but I’m a firm believer that actions speak louder than words. I have set out, I hope very clearly, the three goals for my stewardship. No. 1, championship caliber baseball, year in and year out and yes, that means winning more than our fair share of world championships. No. 2, the best experience for all of our fans, including making Dodger Stadium the No. 1 venue in all of sports. And No. 3, making the Dodgers a model franchise when it comes to partnering with and being an integral part of the greater Los Angeles community, as I spoke about earlier. These are our goals and objectives and I should be judged based on how well the organization achieves them. We’re here for the long haul and I truly hope that I’ll know that I’ve started to succeed when I’ve turned you from a naysayer into a supporter. In short, we plan to be a part of the community for a long, long time and I can assure that nobody wants to win as badly as I do.

Well Frank, you swung and missed on all three. You’re OUT!!!

If only it were that simple. But it might be interesting to get this chat in Frank’s face today and see what he says. Not that I really care what he says.

I’m sure he would get SoJerkOff to put some idiotic spin on it!!

Good evening all.
Boy that sure was a lazer line drive dinger by Gibbons!
Also very glad to hear Cormier got kicked to the curb.
Oh happy day! :)

Boy, do I miss Vinny! These Would-be Astros announcers suck!

Yep. Deshaise puts me to sleep!

After Cormier, who is next?

The more I look at Hall, the more he reminds me of Eric Young.
Bases loaded. Two out. Hmmmmmmmm.
Come on Jerry!

JEH-REY!!!!!!!

Hot Damn Jerry!!! Congratulations Kid!!!!

I love this guy….is real cool under pressure & seems to be having a lot of fun!

I noticed his approach at the plate has improved since being called up. Shows alot more patience now drawing more walks, and hitting to all fields.
Definitely a keeper. I hope he doesn’t go on a trade, or fire sale. . .

I’d like to set Frank & Ned on fire!

Woooo Hoooo!!!
Grand Slam Sands!!
No doubt about that one! That’s out of any park!

Great to see Billz get some run support for a change too. :)

Hope he can go 9 innings ;-) Don’t want to blow this one.

Good grief Billz! These are the damn Astros!!!!

Sheee-it!
Caballo my culo!

Told you guys way up there on the top who would be tonights Bozo….looks like I might be right!

It appears Billz looked at the 5 run lead on the scoreboard, and got complacent.
Complacency Kills!

He seems to do that alot when he gets a lead!!

Well, I don’t like it one bit :-)

Definately sucks!!

By the way, where the hll is Beav? He sent us here and disappeared :-)

I wonder if Navarro has anything to do with it? Who knows what he’s calling for behind the plate?

vl, if Billz doesn’t like what Navarro calls for, he can shake him off. Vinny puts it so well – the catcher suggests what should be thrown. So maybe Billz just rested on his “laurels” for a little bit. After all, it’s so rare the team scores for him.

I’m just saying he may be out of sync with some of the starters due to limited playing time.

I definitely agree with you there.

Bases loaded. No outs.
NOT GOOD!!!

Billz is imploding! Just wonder how many damn runs he will give them?!

Heeeeere we go again.
Same old shit again.

And, we can’t blame this on the BP!

Billz at 100 pitches, and has been on the tight rope.
McDoo-doo?

That wasn’t too bad – just hope we can pick up a few more runs in this inning.

Nice job McDoo! 3 up, 3 down.
Hope the last two go the same.
We need some more runs for insurance.

I wonder if the Stow family lawsuit ruined what was otherwise a perfect 2011 season from a very, very good McCourt-owned ballclub…

.
Guess I’d have to care to wonder. Get ‘em, Stows!

RUB-BY! RUB-BY!!!!

Welcome to the show Rubby!!!

Fabulous glove work by Loney tonight! You saved us a few times….thanks!

Furcal’s throws are giving me flashbacks from waaaay back when Sax had his problems.

Way to go big 50!!!!!

Sweet!! Way to go kid!!!

3 up. 3 down. Showing some good stuff!
Welcome to the bigs Rubby!
I say leave him in next inning too.

I agree VL!!!

Way to start out, Ruby!
Keep it up, and you’ll probably be good enough to get us another shot at Dotel.

Charle still thinks there’s only 1 out. Idiot!!

IBB to Dre. Make em pay Raffy!

Freaking dud!

Let’s see how they blow this one.

Come on Javy!

Yay…one out!

I’m just mad I miss Ruddy debut.

Holy Crap, whew!!!

If these two kids do the job….get rid of all the old farts!

Damn that was freaking close Hall.

Damn! That foul was too close for comfort!

lol wow 1 2 3 inning.

Woo-Hoo, win streak!!! WTG Jerry, Rubby, and Javy!!!!

Way to go kiddies! Nice job!

YESSSS!
I feel great for Guerra! In his home state getting his 1st save!

Chalk one up for the kids!

That was refreshing!!!

How ’bout a Fresca?

We haven’t been able to say that very much lately, have we? Feels nice ;-)

Look like Hall made a big error that gave us 4 of those 5 unearned runs.

Yep Shad, and Sands cashed it in!!!

Pitchers IP H R ER BB SO HR PC-ST ERA
C Billingsley
(W, 3-4) 6.0 5 4 4 3 9 0 100-68 3.69
M MacDougal

J Guerra
(S, 1) 1.0 0 0 0 0 1 0 8-8 3.60

That’s kind of impressive 8 pitches all strike.

I’m glad they got rid of Cormier but I hope they don’t ruining De La Rosa. Now can we get rid of Navarro and get Ellis back up. What the heck I miss a Gibbons homerun to. I really hate that I miss a rare hit with the bases loaded especially a GS.

Wow another 2006 thread that had 0 posts.

That’s why, except for Lopes, our entire coaching staff blows! Isn’t it a reality when our former pitchers go to other teams and do a pretty good job?

By trublu4ever on May 24, 2011 4:09 pm

Shouldn’t Wallace be on that list to with Lopez? I think Wallace should be our coach.

For the most non-productive player of the game, I’ll choose Fuckal.

You nailed it Trumom!!!!

( ( ( :-) ) ) )

I’d like to think what we saw tonight was a preview of things to come rather than a preview of Ned’s next mistakes at the trade deadline.

That would be very nice.

It surely doesn’t help if we go on a long winning streak and only be like 2 to 3 games out of first.

Thanx, tru. I agree about De La Rosa. He should stay at AA for a while. We need someone, but where will they come from? We’re already rushing the Sands kid. No good choices.

By grizzy on May 24, 2011 5:59 pm

lol of course they are some good choices but they should’ve rush this kid up this fast.

they are =their

None of our guys seem to play with much fire anymore. In as much as he got to be a crappy ballplayer, do you think a lot of the heart and soul left when Martin did? Or is that just a coincidence?

I’m wondering what they will do when all the players return from the DL? They HAVE to keep Jerry. What do they do with Blake, Brox, Padilla, Thames, and whoever else is coming back?

I see Castro, Guerra, Mitchell gone but I’m thinking someone going to be on the phatom DL. I wouldn’t be shock if it Loney and Furcal goes straight back on it.

Maybe Broxton would stay on it or get traded.

If we still had Santana he probably would’ve taken Navarro spot by a long shot or probably Ned would’ve had sign him.

When Blake comes back, I hope they cut Castro loose.

Catro’s gone for sure. Guerra/Jansen/Rubby – 2 of the three they’ll option. Mitchell they’ll either option or release.

I don’t look for Brox and Kuo back anytime soon. Don’t really care if I ever see Brox pitching for the Dodgers again. When Hawksworth comes back, I look for Toastcoso to go down.

Yeah notice I didn’t mention Elbert on that list.

Forgot about Tronco. I’d still option Rubby before Tronco though. Keep him starting. In a couple years you could have Kersh, Rubby, Lee and Billz as 4 of the five. Then you could go out and get a Lilly or Garland type to truely be your 5th starter and you’d be in pretty good shape.
.
I’ve read something somewhere that Logan and Ned don’t get along too well. Doesn’t surprise me when one can recognize and draft talent, and the other can’t and trades it away for nothing.

It will be an intersting decision time. Does Mattingly make the call or does Neddy get involved?

Judging from what I’ve seen, I don’t think Mattingly has much say in anything. He couldn’t even pick his own coaching staff.

You’re probably right. And, if you are I’m scared of what Ned will do!

That the prefect reason why Ned should leave.

Position players its pretty much a no brainer [which suits Ned perfectly] – Castro and Mitchell shouldn’t be on any team anywhere. Neither should Gibbons unless he strictly does what he should be doing only – PHing. But the fact that Gibbons would be your third choice to cut off your roster doesn’t say much for your roster in the first place.

What about Thames? Did they already let him go? It didn’t seem like his injury was that severe.

When Blake comes off I’d expect Mitchell to be optioned back to AAA. When Thames is ready I’d suspect Castro will be cut loose. Not to worry though, no one will want him and he can go back to Albuquerque and wait for his next call up. Ned will never just get rid of him.

Since I miss the game what’s number is Ruddy? I assume number 78 and that the year I was born.

oops Rubby

Thanks Tru, I guess espn need to update it.

Woo-Hoo….bottom of 9th….Gnats losing 5 – 0…..LOVE IT!

Damn….Marlins pitcher let them load the bases!

Giants lose 5 – 1….We’re movin’ on up ;-)

Just like the Jefferson’s!!

Was going on SD? I don’t think I ever seen an attendance this low in any California ballpark

16,513 (38.7% full) – % is based on regular season capacity
19,426 (45.5% full) – % is based on regular season capacity

To think last year they choke a 10 games lead to the Giants and let them sneak in the playoff.

Good Morning. It’s an early game today. Is it too much to hope for two in a row? GO, DODGERS, GO!!!!!
.
GO, FRANK, GO!

Urgh Donny why did you move Navarro batting 6th?

Furcal SS, Carroll 2B, Loney 1B, Kemp CF, Gibbons RF, Navarro C, Sands LF, Miles 3B, Lilly P

I knew we couldn’t get the same lineup 2 days in a rows.

n/m Navarro was batting 6th last night.

Steve Lyons: “Andre, why aren’t you in the lineup?” Andre: “I don’t know. I feel fine.” I DISLIKE THIS!

Hey tru! I was wondering on that myself.
Things that make you go hmmmm.

Probably not a bad idea!!!

Wow, that didn’t take long!!!

Now, apparently Mattingly says he wants him to be 100%…with a day off tomorrow, he should be ready to go Friday. We shall see.

Probably a good idea!!!

Conte – nuff said

Good afternoon all. Just enjoying a day off, and looking forward to this afternoons game.
I see Rick Monday is a guest on the Astros pre game show discussing the draft. He was the 1st over all pick in the very first one in 1965. What do you know? I never knew that. It goes to show you can always learn something new every day. He gave some good insight to the draftees. Pitchers can’t expect to win every start, and hitters & fielders have to realize there will be peaks & valleys over the course of their careers. Take the good with the bad, and don’t get too stressed.
I hope Lilly does well, and he gets some decent run support. It sure would be a much needed shot in the arm. This team needs to win the rubber game today, and take this series. After their dismal performance over the last 10 days, they need all the help they can get.

That barely cleared the fence.

Can’t stay long, but have I ever mentioned that Lilly sucks?

Where does he rate on the Navarro suck scale? Navarro has to be the standard for suckiness. He’s even worse than Loney!!!

I agree with Jhall…NAVARRO is the suckiest!!! :-)

He pegs the old suck-o-meter in my opinion. How he can be batting anywhere other than eighth is beyond me.

That’s a good question. Let’s take a look on the ol’ Navarrosuckometer:
.
.
1-2-3-4-5-6-Lilly-8-Gibbons-Navarro-11-12-13-14-Mitchell-16-17-18-19-20-21-22-23-24-25-26-27-25-29-30-31-32-33-34-35-36-37-38-39-40-41-42-43-44-45-46-47-48-49-51-52-53-54-55-56-57-58-59-60-61-62-63-64-65-66-67-68-69-70-71-72-73-74-75-76-77-78-79-80-81-82-83-84-85-86-87-88-89-90-91-92-93-94-95-96-97-98-99-Ned
.
Scale used to only go up to 10, but I had to make some exceptions.

When Barajas is a huge improvement, you definately define suckiness!!

Well, Frank is definately off the scale!!!

Hey enchanted! I think we all have on numerous occassions.

K Johnson homered to center (466 feet).

Wow Johnson hit a 466 feet HR’s in Coors last night? I didn’t even know it was possible to hit a HR’s that far in Coors lol

It was pretty common there before they started using the humidor. I saw a game there in 2000 when the Rox played the Braves. Never before had I seen a ball travel so far & fast. Piazza used to crush 460 footers on a regular basis there.

I could understand Piazza but not a little guy like Kelly Johnson.

Hey, this Rodriguez guy has an 0-2 record and an ERA of 5.34 and he’s making us look like a bunch of minor leaguers!!!
.
.
Whoops, nevermind!!!

Perhaps, the second time through the lineup :-?

Perhaps!! LOL!!!

Except for Fuckal….LOL

Yep, Fuckal is way up on the Navarr-O-Suckmeter!!!

Something tells me Fuckal could’ve used some more rehab ABs.

Yep. Looks like he’s still a long way from finding his stroke.

The way he’s “hitting”, it looks like he had a stroke.

Hong-Chih Kuo regaining control By Tony Jackson

HOUSTON — Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Hong-Chih Kuo, who abruptly left the team two weeks ago to deal with an apparent case of the yips and was placed on the 15-day disabled list with what was termed “anxiety disorder,” appears to have regained his command while throwing off a mound at the team’s spring-training facility in Glendale, Ariz.

For more news, notes and analysis of the Dodgers, check out Dodger Thoughts from Jon Weisman. Blog

“He has been throwing a lot,” Dodgers manager Ned Colletti said. “He is at about 90 percent intensity and having no problems with his command. We’ll see where we go from here.”

Colletti said Kuo eventually will face hitters in extended spring-training games, but that there is no target date for that to happen, nor is there a target date for Kuo to begin a minor league rehabilitation assignment.

Kuo, a National League All-Star for the first time last year, had an 11.57 ERA in nine appearances this season, with a highly uncharacteristic six walks in 4 2/3 innings. He left the team before a May 11 game in Pittsburgh, and while team officials were guarded that day as to his whereabouts, it quickly became clear that Kuo was dealing with the yips — an inability to control where his pitches were going — albeit a milder case than the one that briefly plagued him in 2009.

Colletti declined to say whether Kuo also is receiving any psychological counseling as part of his effort to overcome the problem.

Tony Jackson covers the Dodgers for ESPNLosAngeles.com.

Follow Tony Jackson on Twitter: @dodgerscribe

To be fair, with this team we all need psychological counseling.

This team will drive anyone to the shrink, or the drink.
I prefer the latter! Cerveza anyone? :)

I’ll drink to that!

Ned suffers from a slightly different malady know as the “jips”, particularly when dealing at the trade deadline.

Towles was like 0/32 before that hit gosh Lilly suck.

Whad’ya know? Finally a hit from Matt.

I’m in a state of shock!

Remember, I’m not paid to think, only to make people think this team can be competitive so they come out to the park and put more money in bosses pockets. BTW, I’ve just learned that because of you fans that still come out to the park, boss will probably make his next payroll, yippee, more mustache wax for me.

Even worst Navarro got a bunt single.

Also I wonder how come nobody likes Dionner of a lonely heart Navarro? He’s one of my favs.

Furcal came back off the DL too soon. He’s stinking it up badly at the plate!

I think Fuckal belongs at ABQ, period, along with half of the rest of the team.

Dang Lilly why could’ve done that in the 1st inning?

Thanks Matt!

Alright Matt!!

Yeah Kemp now don’t give the run back.

Go figure Bourn was like 1/11 until that 1st inning HR’s.

Whew!

How does that rate as a hit from Navarro? That had error written all over it!

What a joke!!!

Sigh Mike Brown poor Shaw and that’s ok Sands just not your day today.

Mike Brown is the new coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. Brown and the Lakers agreed in principle Wednesday to a four-year, $18.25 million deal, according to league sources.

Sheeeee-it Fuckal! You Suuuuuuuuck!

Too many holes in the lineup.

Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall!! Ned loves to tuuuuuuuuurn, yoooooooooooou on!!

Ah yes! Another ‘Day in the Life’ of being a Dodger fan. .

:))) Bud seized the team and I went into a dream!!!
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Ahhhhhh, Ahhh, Ahhhhhhhhhhh….

This team is actually a terrific lesson is astrophysics – How many black holes can exist independently in close proximity to one another?

In the galactically stupid Ned world the answer is; INFINITE!!

Whooa! Thaaat’s too deeep! LOL

Dang Towles having a career game this season after the 0/32.

You stop that Navarro you still suck even though that was 2 to 3 mins ago.

That was too close!!
I think McDoo is tired & over worked. He sure struggled with his control there. .

Whew!!!

McDoo barely escapes being Bozo of the day!

Yep he has pitches the last 3 days in a rows and 4 of the last 5 days.

Do you think this team gets a hit off of Halladay?

Highly unlikely in their current state. . .

We will and hopefully we have our full lineup back.

Who wants our full line-up back?

Good game for Matt. Too bad no one on base to drive in. :(

You know, we’re all finally getting the Matt Kemp we always wanted, and now he has to play surrounded by the rest of this crap.

Dang Navarro which 1 of those 2 hits that he have was with runners on bases.

Yanks’ Rivera 1st to 1,000 games on 1 team.

http://sports.espn.go.com/new-york/mlb/news/story?id=6589000

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

That’s it, Tru! That’s the kind of energy we expect from our fans when the Dodgers return home. Just watch the game on TV and take a nap! No need to come to Dodger Stadium to watch this crap!

For sure! These aren’t even elite pitchers we are facing!!!

Actually I think Happs is before we beat him up. I thought the Astros BP was bad and before the series there ERA and opp ba was high.

Aren’t we all glad to have Gwynn on the roster and X Paul gone for nothing in return?
Another wisdom move by Ned.

……..just a tad miffed :(

I’m beyond a tad!

Why, oh why, GrrrRear?!

Why GrrRear? Guerra looked fine. This may go to extras.

I stand corrected. :(
Loosing 2 of 3 on walk offs hurts.

It’s crazy we could’ve won 2 of 3 and Towles that was 0/32 just had a career game.

Have we try to get 2 innings from a reliever before? That always seem to backfire big time.

Come on Guerrier get Towles out.

Damn it no it won’t.

Na-Na-Na-Neddy and his ‘jects.

Perfect ending to a shitty game!

It had to happen eventually – we sure weren’t in a hurry to score another run!

And the pile keeps steaming!!!

I hate it when we play so well close and then lose to these superior teams by one run.

I hate when we give up walk off 2 outs hits.

Question: Wy the hell didn’t Mattingly leave Andre in the game after he pinch hit? He ran out there ready to play. At least he would have had another at bat when it could have mattered.

Answer: Because DonDo is an ass-clown!!!

Like you said Donny wanted Ethier at 100%.

Let’s have a lot of EMPTY SEATS when we return to LA.

But Bear – its one dollar Dodger Dog day!!!

Yeah, Frank can take my Dodger Dog and stick it up his ass.
I’d pay a dollar to see that.

Cripes Bear, I’d pay $2 to see that!! LMAO

I’d pay another dollar to watch Ned eating it.

Most useless player again goes to Fuckal.
Bozo of the game goes to DonDo the clown!!

Well, the more they lose the lesser the crowds. It ain’t much but its all we’ve got.

As it is right now…it’s not even a crowd. It’s more like a group. Pretty soon we can jst say a few people ;-)

Top 5 draft here we come and like I said before would this be a waste if we do get a top 5 picks?

After a 2-4 road trip against the lowly White Sox and Astros, the Dodgers should come home to an empty stadium.

Another bright idea by mccrook….hiring a manager with NO experience!

Worse yet, a JoJo clown clone!!!

Torre bail out just in time I don’t think Wallace could’ve done a better job with all these injuries.

Gromit probably could have though.

Extremely unacceptable, yet pathetically funny!!!

This whole season’s a joke. But then, we knew it would be when we saw the roster. AND because Ned’s such an idiot and signed Fuckal and Waddles Uribe to big contracts, getting anyone to take them at the trade deadline is near impossible. At best you’d probably get a 4th or 5th tier prospect and still have to eat half the salary.

My Hubby said we should keep Dre & Matt, then send all the rest to the ‘Topes and bing them all up to play for us. Sounds pretty good to me :-?

Dang you husband forgot Sands and Carroll than we could send those other fool down to Isotopes. Can we clone a lineup full of Ethier’s and Kemp’s on the bench?

Knowing Fuckal won’t be back, I’d be bringing Dee Gordon up at least August and September to get his feet wet before you throw him to the wolves next year. Same with Robinson.

lol did you reply to him and said they should keep Posey and Belt and send the rest to there farm system?

Well 2 yrs ago the contract wasn’t that bad for Furcal until he got hurt the past 2 season now the contract is hurting us. I don’t know about Furcal considering he’s always hurt but you might get a good prospect back from Blake. Gosh to bad Broxton had to screw up his trading value if he had one for pitching crappy in the 2nd half last year.

Yep Beav, I agree!!! Trade anyone you can in July and bring in the kids to see what we’ve potentially got going to the off season. Only keepers are Kemp, Kershaw, Sands, Billz, Rubby, and Ethier!!!

Wonderful idea!

I did forget to put Sands on my list. But, he is a loaner ‘Tope…..one who I hope stays the season. Kersh, of course!

I feel like Leonard Nimoy (vague reference to his old show In Search Of) when having to look for a new thread…
.
Anyway, if we don’t get a new one from Josh, and this one starts to load too slowly, here’s another one:
.

http://insidethedodgers.mlblogs.com/2006/02/26/dodger-golfers-get-a-mulligan/#comments

I should say, whenever you all feel that this thread is starting to load too slowly. Still not too bad right now.

Just so all of you assholes know, a hot dog won’t fit up my butt. I just tried it and it’s a no-go! (Anyone got a Handy-wipe?)
.
I also want you all to stop complaining, I’ve saved the day. I had Ned get me a pepperoni pizza and a new starting pitcher. Seems the stupid Pirates and Mariners just let the kid go! Shoot, he was half-way decent back in ’07!

http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2011/05/dodgers-sign-ian-snell.html

The hot dog might fit if you removed Neds head first!!!

Ned is double dipping. His head is up his own ass and Franks!!!

Does his mustache tickle your keister McBungHole!!!!

Think it acts as a filter or something.

Actually, my head is what’s up my ass. Ned’s doing the difficult work. He’s got his head up his own ass while kissing mine at the same time.
.
If you think that’s easy, you try it.

I think you spelled his name wrong, Frank. Based on his career WHIP of 1.55, it must be Ian Smells.

I didn’t know if you click the avatar it would tell you who that person is?

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain……….

We usually don’t anyway Frank.

What happen to Tim Redding? I’m surprise he hasn’t been calls up yet after the great season he had and than the flame out.

Did Cormier really outpitch Redding for that last spot in the bullpen?

oops season= is great ST

Glad Ned was able to lure Snell out of retirement…
.
Could one not fall out of a tree and hit a better pitcher than what Ned “finds” laying around the pasture?

Hope everbody has a nice evening. We are doing our Ladies Night Out…a late dinner and midnight showing of Hangover II……seems appropriate :-)

I know this is hard to watch, but just wait until Furcal is back off of the DL, then you’ll see the real team as it’s built. And that’s not even mentioning Blake.

What do you mean Furcal is playing? Why didn’t somebody tell me? This makes me look like an idiot again!

Just keep it up and prove our point! :-?

Angelinos, take up arms.

Holy smoke ex Dodgers players Baez went 5 innings and Valdez 1 2 3 innings. no freaking way. I love to see the box score that said 2nd baseman and than switch to pitcher and Valdez came in late to play 2nd bases.

How the Reds didn’t tee off on Baez is beyond me?

I guess I read that wrong I guess Valdez started over Utley.

I can’t bite my tounge any longer, y’all know me and my belief that negativity, is self serving…Y’all also know that I stand by whom ever we out in the field…That’s what ball players do. However, Frank and Jamie, have reached a crossroad, one that given the slightest opportunity, will reap rewards that are in no way shape or manner good for us fans, the Dodgers, or anything pertaining to what we and I am a native…even know, I reside elsewhere now, have grown, not only to enjoy, but to appreciate, what being a Dodger ( and we all are Dodgers .) At least everyone of us that believes in our proud history. I’m not just talking Jackie and his struggles, or Sandy and his Mastery on the mound. I’m talking about what, I as a middle aged man, have based my love upon. This love was handed to me by my father and I believe it was handed down to him by his father. I made the statement, sometime last year, (maybe) that our beloved Boy’s in Blue could play just as well ( maybe better ) with an empty stadium just as well as with a full one? ( and I truly believe this ), after all…they’re professionals, now! Up until this point they have excelled without much fanfare. Please do your part in restoring what is and should always be, the best and most enjoyable expierince that our grand ole game has to offer. This expierence rest not souly on the amout of money we spend, or the amount of frustration we endure, but on what we as true caretakers of a proud and truly treasured organization believe to precious. This is, and has always been in our ( as the loyal paying publics hands. ) If you want what you grew up loving, or you want what your parents grew up loving, now is the time to restore what we all…believe to be the greatest place to not only play the game of baseball, but to see it played as well. The Dodger Way is more that just how we conduct ourselves on the field of play, it is in how we go about enjoying the game itself. That has always been the best of the best, without this we are just anither run of the mill franchise…and I won’t give that up without a fight. ( We… me and you ) as fans are what is going to continue this wonderful tradition and nothing else. forget Frankm and Jamie, forget the payroll, forget the fact that we are the one of the biggest makets in baseball, and focus on what brought us all here.

Boo…..
.
“Dodgers owner Frank McCourt has told Major League Baseball officials that he expects to meet the team’s payroll next week, three people briefed on the matter said Wednesday.
.
McCourt needs about $9.8 million to meet the May 31 payroll, said a person familiar with the situation who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the potential for litigation. McCourt could obtain at least some of that money by accelerating payments the Dodgers were due later this season, one of the people briefed on the matter said.
.
The amount of money needed to meet payroll will increase in June, when the Dodgers must pay Manny Ramirez more than $6 million in deferred compensation, according to two people familiar with the Ramirez contract. The payroll comes due on June 15 and 30, with the Ramirez payment slated for June 30, one of the people said.”

Mccourt is scum
Changing ownership is a must
Colletti needs to go with him
O’Malley never shamed us like this
Underhanded ownership is not welcome here
Real class comes from within, and he is empty inside
This week held a lot of hope but not so much now
.
You have to look longer and harder for his supporters
Only ostriches like him
Usually you have to turn over a rock to find stuff like him
.
Maybe we’ll have better luck next month
Only another month
There’s a good chance that Manny might make a difference
How much longer can he really hold out?
Everyone around me will be happy when he’s gone too
Really
For now we just gotta hang in there
Unusually low attendance will still matter
Chumps like him will never really succeed
Knowing how much he’s raped the franchise can’t be forgotten
Even pond scum doesn’t like him
Rejection by an entire city must be humiliating
.
Inside The Dodgers will not let him relax
.
Believe it louse, you’re dead in this town
Early polls are in, turd, and you’ve lost
Try and keep this team and you’ll regret it
There are too many of us that will never quit fighting you
Even Vin is embarrassed by your actions (I hope)
Ross Porter’s departure was a huge clue
.
Now my resolve is stronger than ever
Even with this news tonight you’re a loser
Victory is still within our grasp
E’s are getting harder to come up with something
Resolute is our determination
.
Shit, more e’s coming up
Eric is my name
Erick is not my name
.
Yellowstone is somewhere I haven’t yet seen
Oh, I’ve been to a lot of places
Unfortunately just not to Yellowstone
.
I think I’ll make it there eventually
No, not real soon but in a decade or so
.
Probably not in the next five years
Understand that I’m not scared of bears
Bear attacks aren’t that common
Lemon pie is really good
I can’t remember why I started this in the first place
Criminy, it was that bastard’s claim he could make payroll…..

I haven’t seen one of those in a long time ….. and very well said I might add :)

Wow Nelly you still haven’t went to bed yet.

There is always hope that he won’t make payroll the next time. There is also hope that very soon he will be GONE FOREVER!!!!!

Sorry for the horrible spelling…but my point should still resonate boldly. It is just as much our responsibilty to adhere to the standards, we belive in, as it is anyone’s. Past, present or future. Unless we give into other beliefs, as opposed to what we enjoy at the ballpark…This legacy will continue…

That’s ok we’re not judging you over spelling.

Thank you fans for your continued support. I know boss is very happy when he sees the parking lots and the stadium filled. It means he’ll be able to keep his team, and buy himself more necessary things, like his weekly manicure and pedicure.

Ned, I’ve got a message that you need to pass along to your boss:
.
SELL THE TEAM!!!!!!!!!

DITTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like the Giants will be without Buster for quite some time..broken leg. Ouch!

He was the one player I liked on that team. That’s too bad :(

Me too. I hate to see it happen to anybody…Giant or not.

I feel sorry for Posey.
.
But I feel worse for us – to the extent that Posey’s injury will be a drag on the Giants’ ability to win, that’s bad news for us. Why? It improves the odds that the Dodgers will be within striking distance of first place come the trading deadline. That means that unless a regime change comes through soon, Ned will be trading away the few prospects we have left for more PVLs. :(

Wow I can’t believe the Angels had him but they drafted him as a pitcher.

From the Lost & Found department:

Found: The missing Dodgers offense

http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/milb/stats/stats.jsp?sid=milb&t=g_box&gid=2011_05_25_rcqafa_lncafa_1

Too bad its down in the A league and is two to three years away.

Holy crap 25 runs 19 hits and a 11 runs 9th innings.

The first 3 in term of WAR Lilly, Wolf and Davis. lol they also a Tomko in there and no surprise that Utley and Victorino is on this list.

I should’ve say those were 3 of the top 5 all LHP.

We drafted Konerko as a catcher and what’s sicking me is Price wanted to go to college such a waste pick but he was pick in the 19th rounds in 2004 but was TB 1st round overall pick in 2007 same with Utley other than him being a 1st overall pick.

Surprise McCourts ranked last as owners in independant poll, yet Dodger Stadium was ranked in the top 5 parks to see a babeball game. Now let’s remove the owners so we can actually see a good Dodgers team play at Dodger Stadium. If not, the owners may ruin one of the best stadiums in MLB, they are trying, enough foul teritory has been removed for seats I can’t afford already.

Whatcha think gang – time to move along to a new thread?
