    Not the way I hear it. Right now rumors suggest Eric Chavez is in line to manage the Halos and that Scioscia returning isn't a lock.

    B) Doubtful. Trout is a ghost, especially if Philly strikes out this winter. Players' assoc. will be pressuring him to take the best offer to set the bar, but MLB itself could find itself pressuring him to move back east to give him more of a platform. Being that he's from Jersey, Phillies or Yankees, and I don't think any of these entities will have to pull too hard to get him to move back east.

    Actually they are. It's not nice to state such in polite company of idiots but what would the straws of life stir if there were no blithering masses?

    Yin and yang. But that's a hell of a question.

    The investigation was ongoing from a year ago, but his ex-wife wasn't being helpful.... Then when the playoffs got in sight, she started talking and it is supposedly pretty bad. That was some vengeance on her part. She knows that he'll be forgiven by Cubs fans the minute he comes back from suspension, so she started to make noise when she knew it would hurt him, the club and the fans most. Ice cold and good for her.

    She forgot one thing though..Russell's not a good baseball player. So she actually helped the Cubs and Cubbie fans.

    Before his last start, Chase Utley saw that Rich Hill was tipping his pitches and told him. Since then, Hill has been really fucking impressive, even if it was against shitty opponents. Utley noticed the action when reviewing tape of the Dodgers starters and they both believe it is why he has been so hittable this season. This could be an interesting turn of events if the Dodgers can get to the NLDS. Also, Utley is going to have to be a coach.

    You mean in lieu of a playoff roster spot? Or after this season?
    I don't think he wants to coach for another 5 years or so. Wants to be at home with his kids.

    I know the big topic is will he ever manage LAD? Not sure if I want him to manage..he may not catch all the little things like this if he has a bunch of other responsibilities, i.e. dealing with the media, etc. But defnitely feels like he's a natural bench coach or 3B/1B coach. He'd probably thrive in either role

    Chris Davis finishes with a -3.2 WAR and a .168 batting average. That's
    the lowest BA among qualifying players in Major League baseball history.

    Pretty cool story, but in my bitterness, I can't help but think how much I would have appreciated that kind of Intel on Darvish before game 7 last year...

    Honestly, he doesn't even need to be a coach. Make him a special assistant if all he wants to do is review tape. Show up a day or two a week, collect a paycheck, then go back home the rest of the time. I just don't want any chance of him being outside the organization.

    Question remains...do they give him a postseason roster spot? He's looked really bad.
