Eric Karros joins KCAL team

In case you missed it, Eric Karros has joined KCAL as part of the Dodgers’ pregame show. This is great news for Dodger fans, who will get to hear Eric’s insights throughout the season. For those of you who have heard him on ESPN, you know that he’s very good at analyzing the game and he’s a true professional.

As a player, you could always tell that Eric would be a good broadcaster someday and it didn’t take long for him to wind up back with the team he knows best. We’re glad he’s back in the family and that he’ll be around quite a bit this season.

    It is certainly great to have Eric Karros back with the Dodgers! I agree that he will have a great new career in broadcasting, and I look forward to the contributions he will make to our 2006 team! Go EK!

    Way to go E.K., It is great to have you back where you belong. I just wish we could
    bring back another sorely missed member of our Dodger family, Ross Porter. Ross’ voice was almost as synonomous

    with the Dodgers as that of the great Mr. Scully. What I wouldn’t give to hear “would you like to take a shot at

    Dodger trivia?”, and the never forgetable “Mmmm Hmmm!”

    I have been trying to get this info. out for a long time, Eric Karros is the icon picture for MLB, just like Jerry West is the icon for NBA basketball. It,s easy to find out ,just go back to the baseball arcives on channel 5 or 11 or 13 whichever station was sponsoring the dodger games then. It was when he just starting playing for the DODGERS. Somebody please look this up, I think it a tribute to Eric and the DODGERS if this is prpven (and this info I’m giving is correct I’ve been behind this for all this time. gusrenterias@yahoo.com

    Josh has not abandoned us, he is just out of the office.
    Well I am off to my happy place in a few. No matter what, I back the boys are back in town.

    Where is that thread the last time I posted here? It was STT talking about the offense that scored around 20+ runs that night in RC I think that was the farm system and I was talking about how baseball reference listed all the draft picks and all the stats those draft picks accomplish in the major.

  6. nedsajerk

    lol 7-6 scored in Texas but the only problem those aren’t our offense and they playing in a hitter park.

  7. nedsajerk

    How lucky can the Giants get? Since Bochy get ejected they scored 5 runs and that rookie Crawford hit a GS.

      Shad, most of the threads we’ve been using are from Feb, 06. The last one was Frank Chats or something like that.

  8. nedsajerk

    That terrible 1 pitch from Adams and a GW HR’s from Moose after the Padres just tied it up in the top of that 9th.

    Good evening all.
    Well, it’s all set for the NHL finals Bruins vs. Canucks.
    The garden is rockin in beantown.
    Hope the Mavs take the Heat in the NBA finals.

    Just trying to replenish some bodily fluids lost today Wally. Consuming mass quantities. It was 107 here today. Supposed to be even hotter tomorrow!

  11. vl4eccjr

    San Antone is a GREAT party town! Ranks up there with Austin. OK to visit, but I couldn’t stand the humidity for too long. At least it’s dry here with humidity less than 10% most of the time.

    • JhallWally

      It wasn’t too bad for me since I’m used to high humidity here in the summer also. Always cool on the River Walk!!!

  12. vl4eccjr

    Houston’s over 500 miles to the south-southeast.
    Draw a straight line from El Paso to DFW. It’s just about half way.

  13. nedsajerk

    I know I’m an inning late but damn Ross got thrown out by Fielder. Where is the Giants defense where they known for giving up gift runs?

  14. trublu4ever

    Looks like the crowd is better than we had hoped for…however, it is the first game of the series and, the guys have been gone for a while. Still, not what you’d expect for a Friday night.

  15. enchantedTheBeav

    I see we’re mashing again tonight – 2 hits already…
    .
    …and against a guy with an ERA over 6.00.
    .
    Ain’t no stoppin’ us now.

    • nedsajerk

      Vasquez have better career numbers vs us than his numbers this season not a big surprise to see us having 2 hits.

  16. enchantedTheBeav

    Can’t say as I’ve ever stopped in Odessa VL, or Midland either for that matter, though I did stop in Pecos to see the buffalo. Been in Big Springs and Abileen too. So what did I miss by not stopping in Odessa?

  17. enchantedTheBeav

    How come you’ve never heard of half these Marlins and yet they’re putting up numbers our guys could only dream of?

      • enchantedTheBeav

        Proving you don’t have to have a huge Yankees type payroll if you have somebody at the helm that knows talent and believes in young guns vs. old hasbeens.

  18. JhallWally

    Can’t pin this one on Garland so far!! The offense needs to get the bats out of their asses!!!

    • nedsajerk

      This suck Elbert was drafted at a SP and we’re using him as a reliever and since his called up he’s been very impressive than the prior 30 games combined going back to 2008. He was a good hitting pitcher in college that would’ve also made him a waste in the bullpen.

  19. enchantedTheBeav

    Ever think of how much better off this franchise would have been had Ned not signed anyone named Juan?

  20. nedsajerk

    As much as we don’t want Gibbons on this team I would’ve had done that even though Choate is LH.

  21. nedsajerk

    Don’t make Rubby a reliever is really a waste that he should probably be a SP for us in 2013.

  22. nedsajerk

    I love Tolleson and Armes numbers so far. We have some good pitching talent just hope they are not going to be bust. You can easy fill the 3rd-5th spots and Broxton/Kuo spot in the bullpen.

    • nedsajerk

      Oh yeah and probably late bloomer Guerra from that 2004 draft class. I don’t understand why some of the expert said our minor leaguer suck when we have good talent down there and how do they ranked the system. Is that the entire minor league system or the double A and triple A combined? I could understand we ranked low bases on the higher minor league system and not those rookie one.

  23. enchantedTheBeav

    You ever notice that it still takes the other team screwing up for us to get a win now and then?

    Not that he would care a tinker’s damn, and not that his chances to hang on have improved much, but if he manages to stick, I will switch to the Angels.

    This news should galvanize the fan boycott a little more.
    .
    I guess now we’re living 2 weeks at a time until something happens one way or the other. Manny has a $6 million payment due in June. Whether it’s the first or second payment, I don’t know. What with the June 22 court date looming, this is all going to make mid-late June very interesting.

  26. messagebear

    Tonight’s attendance will no doubt include the dogs allowed in the RF pavillion. I see they will charge the dogs the regular ticket price. Will they get a doggy bone too?
    _
    Other than dogs, let’s keep the SEATS EMPTY.

  27. messagebear

    When considering the attendance, the season ticket holders don’t really count for much, other than money they spend at the stadium once they’re there. Their ticket money has already been spent or borrowed against way back when they paid for their tickets. The cash flow is getting low any way you look at it.

    It doesn’t surprise me that Frank could make one payroll, maybe even a few more. With all the outstanding loans he has, he has to be paying millions in loan charges every month. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s falling behind on some of those in order to make the payroll, because none of those lenders can take over the team right away. My suggestion would be that he don’t pay Manny – f*** the idiot for trusting Frank on a deferred payment contract to begin with. Of course, I never liked Manny any better than I did Frank.

    NEW YORK – Musician Gil Scott-Heron, who helped lay the groundwork for rap by fusing minimalistic percussion, political expression and spoken-word poetry on songs such as “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” died Friday at age 62.

    • nedsajerk

      Oh yeah last year were guys like Sherrill 41%, Miller 50%, Troncoso 59%, Schlicting 41%, Ramon Ortiz 36%, Broxton 50%, Dotel 83% those numbers were bad. The bright spot that Belisario was at 23%, Weaver 21%, Kuo 29% and Taschner 20%.

      • nedsajerk

        Jansen was at 50% and Monsterious and Elbert 100% on 2/2. Link was 1/0 which was 100% and McDonald 2/1 which was 50%.

    • nedsajerk

      We had the best bullpen in 2009 that average was around 29% and McDonald was the only one that had a 50% ratio.

    Good Day ITD. I’m very happy today. Why? I don’t know…just a good feeling. Enjoy your Saturday and perhaps we will meet at game time. GO, DODGERS, GO!!!!
