    i remember as a kid when guys like buckner, garvey and cey were september call ups
    i felt old when they (all) retired, even older now...
    probably not dissimilar to how codge felt after the louisiana purchase

    Dyson is making an ass of himself today but did he always throw 98-99? I can't believe they got the guy for free

    BREAKING: Adrian Gonzalez is done for the season after reagravating his back injury. He experienced back tightness and will now be focusing on getting healthy for the 2018 season where he fully intends to play.

    Sounds like his last hurrah. At least he went out with a bang.

    He’d be doing the team such a HUGE favor if he just retired due to the injury. Still gets his last year of the contracts check, but his salary wouldn’t count towards the cap. Be nice to free up another 20 mil.

    Yeah, probably is over...
    Guy won a shitload of games for us and dug thousands of bad throws out of the dirt and kept the plays in order. Generally fielded a GG first base for us.
    Guess I'm sentimental or whatever, like I am about Orel, but Agon, like Hershiser, was a great Dodger player.

    Something that will always haunt me looking back is how we backed out last minute in a deal that woulda got us AGon and Heath Bell in 2009 with prime Kemp and Ethier on the roster and Manny fucking raking. We woulda been stacked and all it would of cost us was early mediocrity Loney, declining Marting, Dewitt, McDonald and Dejesus. I was a prospect hugger even back then, but I pitched a monster fit when I found out we killed it last minute. Man.... that woulda been a fun team.

    Yeah, AGon went out with a bang, not exactly Kobe-esque but a bang nonetheless.
    TBT, I always coveted him as a Dodger and I was as stoked as anyone when we finally got him. He seemed like he was already there and wore the uni well but father time won again. Good on him, good on us, good on GuGGs and Ned getting him and restoring faith.

    GO BLUE!!

    What if one of our regular bench guys gets injured. Then in the next round we need an extra bat. And Adrian takes the needle for one more series.
    Hits big game winning HR.

    Yep. I know WS or bust is the mindset nowadays but making the playoffs wasn't that common for us prior to acquiring Adrian. He wasn't the only reason we started consistently making the playoffs but he certainly played a big role in our turnaround as a franchise. He may have fell off the last couple seasons but he was a very good Dodger for most of his tenure. Nothing but love for him.
