    So they can pay him less next contract.

    Because he asks for the ball? Did he not ask for more money and get it as well?

    I said this elsewhere, but our problem may stem from this false notion that these people actually care about winning a World Series. It would seem very clear that they do not when they pick AJ Pollock over Bryce Harper.



    It may or may not have been Friedman though, so..just something I thought I'd relay. But yeah, Kersh tookem to the cleaners last offseason. Robbed the vault and he didn't need any Ocean's 11 theatrics. Just stickem up in broad daylight. So weird because I seem to remember reports that Kersh took less money when he signed the first time, that they wanted to lock him up on an even bigger deal. I don't believe Friedman was around for that bit of business.

    But I mean, Kersh did just sign a shitty shoe contract with Skechers, so he's grabbing cash all over now. The ping pong deal is probably next. He is a giving guy, and giving usually does need company from getting, so maybe that explains his recent activity? He's getting out of character it'd seem..perhaps something he should think about tranferring to the field.

    Nancy was a million times better than the guy they have now. Cannot deny his musical talent. But the insufferable "let's go Dodgers" riff after every pitch needs to die. Also, Nancy's organ sounded much better. I cannot speak in musical terms but it had a distinct sound that instantly made you feel like you were in a ballpark. Dodger Stadium sounds like a basketball arena now.

    Couldn't agree more.

    I don't mind his style at Kings' games, but it's too much at Dodger Stadium. Could also do without the scoreboard blaring out "make some noise."

    Watching the fucking Nats pick apart the Cardinals just makes me hate Roberts & Co. even more. Should have been an easy WS appearance and now the Astros and Yankees are beating each other up and the fucking Stros don't have any viable lefty pitchers right now. What a fucking a joke of a coach this mother fucker is.

    I know I'm late, but Nancy Bea couldn't hold Helen Dell's jockstrap.

    If it wasn't for this fucking idiot, we would be in the World Series. how they don't have the nuts to fire this incompetent asshole is beyond me. All he had to do is bring Kenta Maeda in for the eighth inning. Literally all he had to do. I am so freaking disgusted with this franchise.

    I can't imagine sitting through another entire regular season just to get back to the nlds with the same manager and same roster.

    You can scratch Maddon off the list. He's going to the Halos on a 3 year deal. They probably get Cole too. Of course, Roberts isn't going anywhere anyway

    I'm sure Roberts is a nice guy and tries as best he can. The problem is he's really bad at his job. If they don't want to fire him, reassign him to do something task. Like they did with Ned. But don't let him have his finger on the button.

    agreed
    it's like @Finski...
    he's a really cool dude, but you wouldn't want him performing your colonoscopy
    actually, he's pretty familiar with the male anus so that's probably not a good example
    never mind, carry on

    That’s the problem. We have too many “nice guys” who don’t man up when it matters. We need some redasses on this team that can also make smart but hard decisions.

    It’s no coincidence that the last WS win had Gibson and Lasorda and Hershiser on the team.

    What kind of world is it where I get criticized for assplay? So what if he was just a busboy?

    Anyway ... yeah ... Roberts for my next-door neighbor, but not my team's manager. The guy has managed what is in composition a solid baseball team into a fucking soup sandwich.

    @irish 's Roberts Scarecrow jpeg is my screensaver at school right now. The students like it. I wish it wasn't so incredibly accurate.

    I would rather have David Ross with zero managing experience than Dave Roberts. I'm willing to bet the Cubs and Ross will celebrate another championship before Roberts and the Dodgers. Of course the Cubs ownership being willing to spend to sign players is a factor.
