Naughty and nice

The Dodger front office had a lot more nice than naughty in calendar 2017 but let’s give a brief rundown of a subjective review of Dodger front office actions. Naughty – asking outfielder Brett Eibner to pitch and then releasing him outright after he blew out his arm. Nice – giving a Sept callup to O`Koyea …

Locastro gets to say hi

The LAD front office continued their generous ways by bringing up Tim Locastro for a taste of the major leagues in this final weekend.  There isn’t any need for the minor league middle infielder given the Dodgers have Seager, Forsythe, Chase, Barnes, Hernandez, Taylor, and Culberson who can play either 2nd or SS but maybe …

Dodgers reward Brett Eibner

with his release.  The AAA outfielder was asked to pitch by the Dodgers this summer and did so, eventually blowing out his arm and requiring Tommy John surgery.  Today the Dodger designated him for assignment. They could have put him on the 60 Day Dl, but they choose not to. I guess to make up …

The 2017 Dodger mantra has been depth depth depth, and on Wednesday night they put that on display. Both teams have had to play with numerous players on the DL and while the names of Enrique Hernandez, Scott Van Slyke, and Chris Taylor don’t put fear into the hearts of their opponents their bats did. …

The power farm

Fun with minor league stats, Dodger farm hands lead three of their four respective leagues in home runs as they plow through their acreage like a John Deere steel gang plow. PCL – O’Koyea Dickson and Brett Eibner tied for league lead in home runs with three California League – Ibandel Isabel leads league in …

Buehler and Bellinger deliver

Many things went right last night but ultimately the Cubs and Jon Lester came out on top once again. For Dodger fans, most of Monday was spent watching the Cubs take what seemed like hours to celebrate their 2016 World Championship, and then defeat the Dodgers in a walk off.

LAD System POTW – 4/10/17

Dodgers: Pitching – I’m going with Hyun-Jin Ryu simply because he made his first start in Coors, and no one really thought he’d ever get there. He didn’t win his game but he pitched well enough to win and more importantly, he looks very much like the Ryu who was the best number three starter in …
