    I love this post and particularly the term "fuck sticks" which I intend to use from this point forward.

    And Guggs choked last offseason. The perfect opportunity to ditch Kershaw's choker ass came and they choked.

    Same can be said of their deal with Roberts. His deal was up and they signed on for more of his ass-kissing.

    A culture of choking from the top all the way down the players

    Opening day will be rocking. Our Dodgers will lead in attendance once again. Fans will be sporting jerseys, shirts and caps. Little kids will get their first glimpse at a ball park and all the souvenirs that go with it. Overnight at Dodger stadium, meet n greets, fireworks and bobblehead nights will continue. Dodger dogs will be sold. Spectrum will still air commercials. The Dave Roberts and Clayton Kershaw redemption narrative will be thrust forward simultaneously with the future/potential emerging young stars one.

    They will be good all year. They will win the NL west. They will once again choke it away in the playoffs.

    The cash will roll in. As long as it continues then it is a success.

    Over a billion valuation increase since we took over.

    Dont mean to toot my own horn here, but look what Forbes said about us

    The Dodgers had operating income of $95 million last season, the most in baseball. Such richness is a plus when, as in the case of the Dodgers, the owners are in the process of selling small stakes in the team to limited partners. The new investors will pay more if they believe a dividend is more likely than a capital call.

    Why change what is working?

    sincerely,

    GBM

    my guess is the Latino fans swilling shit tons of beer at $15 a pop is a MAJOR revenue producer as well
    I like suds as much as the next guy but I'm not in line buying 6 more in the 7th
    bless their hearts the management has to love these guys
    we can buy the same exact beer for no more than $3 at the gas station
    which means the Dodgers get them for maybe $2?
    straight greed and the food sucks
    throw in the absurd parking rates and I may truly have attended my last Dodger game (I know I've said it before) gay
    but even if they spend wildly on Cole and others its still going to be the village idiot calling shots
    or worse he never even got the chance to call the shots
    but no analytics driven decision maker puts CK out there for Rendon
    I think davey is just that stupid
    and what's the point in investing another dime or more of my time when its always the same?

    Would be one thing if they had signed a guy like Harper and used that as justification for gouging fans. But A.J. Pollock? It just sucks because an average guy like me can't really afford to go to a game. Then with the TV debacle I can't even watch at home. I sometimes wish I wasn't a fan at all because this shit really is heart wrenching. I feel like that fag in Brokeback mountain - I can't quit the Dodgers.
    I know, homo.

    Dave Roberts is in a league of his own, honestly.

    You know you're a fucking moron when:

    1) Donald Trump can unite the country on Twitter calling you out for your idiotic in-game decisions (see taking Hill out in game 4 of the 2018 WS after already committing that sin in the 2017 WS)
    2) You can get ESPN, Fox Sports, Dan Patrick, Jim Rome, and all the other mainstream sports fkags to stop talking about the NFL and NBA for entire segments to discuss your ineptitude.

    His stupidity on levels that literally transcend sports coverage. Same for Clayton's choking.

    With the way they're now dodging the luxury tax, Guggs definitely owns the right team

    Went to the Muncy walk-off game with the wife in early August. Dude comes strolling by with large cans of 805 beer for $18. I'm thirsty, but I'm thinking I can get a fucken 12-pack for less than that. Greedy motherfuckers. Like @THINKBLUE said, fuck them all... from the top down.

    and those motherfuckers cruise the parking lot relentlessly now making sure you don't tailgate
    lets not forget spank McCourt is still part of the equation

    IIRC, from what CKWG said he heard before the season, some higher ups in the FO were happy when Kershaw opted out because they felt they could move on. And then the call came down from over their heads that they weren't ready to move on from the nostalgic/fan favorite BS. Not in Kersh's case, anyway.

    All to say that, yeah, it wouldn't shock me if Friedman wanted out. If he were one of those execs that was happy to let Kersh leave..yeah

    That rumors sounds like something that’s probably true. Friedman isn’t in the habit of handing out $90 million contracts, so it’s doubtful Kershaw was in a place to be the exception.

    What pisses me off is that I hate all player options to begin with, but then a player uses it for leverage when he didn’t even perform well enough for the remaining contract he had? Fuck that. It’s like Kershaw decided he was going to opt out 2 years before the option, and never took a reality check in those 2 years.

    That said, I wasn’t opposed to Kershaw picking up the option by any means. But the extension was clearly the team throwing money away.

    Their usage of him doesn’t back this line of thinking though. If they actually felt that way why do they keep putting him in these high leverage opportunities to fail over and over?
