Pedro rolls over on an outside pitch. Weak ground out to the right side.

But he's not telling the truth, he's conveniently ignoring good things we have done because we are having a bad week. The truth is we made good moves and we are a better team than we are showing this week.

Are you EVER going to post ANYTHING positive?? Good God!


What about what he said isn't true?



There was nothing wrong with the trades the Pirates made. While Ramirez is nice, certainly not in Pirates budget. Victorino having a nice series, but the Pirates do not need a rental till the end of the year. The Bucs made trades to improve their team NOW and in the FUTURE...

Every post he makes slams SOMETHING. You do not have to be happy about what has been going on, but support your team!

Man, I love Clint Barmes. 2 hits last night, big triple today and he almost killed Barajas making him score from 1st. :D

The Dodgers are paying, what, $30+ mil in salary to Ramirez alone over the next two years?

It's all a matter of perspective. You saw very telling quotes from Matt Kemp the other night about the positive jolt they have gotten from management showing they were serious about winning this year by getting proving major leaguers. I don't even really have complaints about the trades because we are what we are in our market. Just gets old when people get jumped on for telling the truth...even it it's not easy to take.

Pedro apparently didn't get the "re-focus" message. That was a horrendous effort. Absolutely horrendous.


Garrett Jones got the "re-focus" memo.
Joe Blanton apparently didn't get the "Dodgers acquired real major leaguers" memo.

He'll make up for it.

Blanton is serving up so many meatballs that one is bound to participate in the perogi race.


It was inevitable.
