    Kershaw figures, 'Fuck it." Even if he walks on his remaining contract, he can afford to play house with Ellen & the wee ones and have enough to light Cohibas with century notes every day until he croaks ... why bother with this three-city horseshit?

    if they really want to start the season just let it be without fans or half the amount of fans
    i doubt there is one athlete that is truly concerned at this point
    and if he is then leave him off the roster
    but four months away from family?
    no way thats happening

    So let me get this straight. The Boston Red Sox are being punished for cheating but Manfred could find no evidence of any coach or player knowing that they were cheating.

    Got it.

    And any punishment for the "2020 season" is a straight up farce, and everyone knows it. This guy Manfred is laughing at the obligatory prosecution of his job...why , I don't know. Douchebaggery rampant, and a flat out insult to each and every baseball fan's intelligence.
    Must have a sick sense of humor, and should be replaced fucking immediately, if not sooner.
    As my first sergeant used to say.

    Mine, too.

    She was scared to fall again and never got out of the wheelchair despite being capable of doing so.

    my mom just fell yesterday and fortunately it was backwards on her bum
    she smacked her head on the ground as well but is just fine
    she's determined not to get in the wheelchair
    poor caregiver was in tears hoping i wouldn't be angry at her...how exactly could i be angry?
    its not like anyone can be there all the time and even if they were how can they be expected to catch her?
    if they are too close she yells at them

    Ned Colletti on the Baseball Tonight podcast just said that they had a deal in 2008 with the Indians that would have landed them CC Sabathia. It was vetoed by Frank McCourt due to the prospects that went back(he later hints that it was more likely financial reasons as this would have cost them $5M). Here is the deal that he said it was:

    Dodgers Get:

    CC Sabathia
    Casey Blake
    Jamey Carroll
    Indians Get:
    Carlos Santana
    And 4 prospects that never panned out

    Here is the kicker.... none of the prospects in this deal were used in the Manny deal later on and he feels they would have done them both. The Dodgers would have had the hottest pitcher and batter in the game for the last couple of months. Fuck Frank McCourt.

    Some other bits from it:
    • He talks about how the Manny trade went down and gives him plenty of credit for being the guy that galvanized that clubhouse.
    • Mentioned that Kemp, Ethier and Martin did not do well around vets when they first came up. Manny changed that.
    • After Manny signed his contract, he was a different dude. Granted he got busted early on, but he was not the same dude that he had been the year before.
    • The club had no intention of bringing Puig up in 2013. They wanted him to stay in the minors for AT LEAST a full season. The org was well aware of his wrinkles and didn't want to see him get off track. Injuries forced their hand and the rest is history.
    • Apparently Puig is actually a really nice/sweet guy, but growing up in Cuba caused him to live his life for today and today only. Nobody could get him to think differently, not even a private meeting with Kobe could do the trick.

    I didn't think it was possible for me to hate Frank McCourt even more than I already did but then I read this post.

    Those Dodgers teams were in desperate need of a true ace and CC was the best pitcher in baseball at the time. Still somehow managed to make it to the NLCS back to back years with Derek Lowe as our ace. With CC, it's not unrealistic to think they grab a title. Smh

    Fuck that cunt.

    Vin Scully has been released from the hospital after a fall at his home this week, the Dodgers shared Saturday on Twitter.

    The Hall of Fame broadcaster, 92, thanked the first responders, doctors and nurses who treated him at Los Robles Hospital.

    “My sincerest thanks to the LA County Firemen and women who come to the rescue and always seem to be there when we need and to the excellent administration, doctors and nurses of Los Robles Hospital,” Scully said in a statement. “I am so eternally grateful for their help and selfless service. I’m home resting comfortably with my wife and we are both eagerly awaiting the Time for Dodger Baseball!”

    In looking back, the 4 prospects he mentioned had some MLB experience, but never made much impact. Some of the guys to think about would be Andy Laroche, Chin-Lung Hu, Scott Elbert, James McDonald and maybe even the rising Josh Bell. At the time, our system was perceived to be stacked after big time graduations and still Kershaw, Laroche and Hu all getting superstar or near that projections leading the lists. Moving one or more of those guys could definitely have caused McCourt pause if he new tough times were on the horizon. It’s interesting looking back at the lists and seeing how many guys just face planted.
