    Default The TrolleyDodgers

    It would be nice to have a season long thread dedicated to the BLUE, much like the Lakers thread we had going this season.

    I was fine reading the opening day stuff until junkie polluted the thread with pics of his Giants gear.

    Has anyone noticed that Dodgers are up 3-1 on the Padres and ManRam has already walked and scored on a single by Ethier? Btw, nice error on Peavy. Kuroda is having a nice outing, surprisingly. I thought he would get eaten up.

    btw, if you want to be down with the Elysian Park cholo set, there is only one hat to rock at the Ravine:

    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    I'll resist the atavistic temptation to take a bat to your head. I have nice seats to tomorrow's Giants opener, but in this serious drought, rain and perhaps thundershowers are expected.

    Perhaps the Giants deserve to be cursed. Consider a payroll that doles out $18.5 million a year to Zito, and $665K to Lincecum. Obama needs to to do something about this.

    How about 18.5 per to Zito, 9.6 to Rowand, 8.8 to Randy Winn, and 10 to Edgar Renteria.

    Lincecum: 665k
    Pablo Sandoval: 400k
    Fred Lewis: 392k
    Matt Cain: 950k
    Jonathan Sanchez: 600k

    The bottom 5 will mean about 10 times more to the team then the top 4.

    Just think of the team that the A's could put together if we had a payroll of 117 million instead of 47 million, which is actually overstated. The A's have the payroll on espn has Giambi listed at 23 million and Nomar at 9 million, which are not their actual salaries. A's salaries are probably closer to 40 million, 1/3 of the Dodgers team salary.

    The Yankees are also 0-1 today as well. They have a pretty decent sized payroll.

    Wolf looks awful tonight. He is letting a horrible Padre line-up get the best of him.

    I am going to wait 2 or 3 full turns through the starting rotation before I start walking towards the edge of the cliff.

    Wolf is not a #2, though. I think even Torre knows this.

    Definitely not a #2. Torre wanted to set up the pitching rotation so Billingsly pitched the home opener from what I understood. I think Torre considers him the #4 guy. Kurado looked much better than him the day before.

    I guess I should wait to walk. I was very optimistic about the pitching rotation before the start of the season but to see how bad Wolf was last night against a horrible Padre line up got me really worried.

    I just found out that a teammate of mine from college, Henry Bonilla, is now with the Dodgers organization. He spent the last two years with the Bees, but apparently signed with LA this offseason. He's pitching in Albuquerque, so you'll have to let me know if he ever gets called up. He's 30, this is his 4th or 5th season in AAA, and he's never thrown terribly well at that level, so the chances are slim, but I guess you never know. My initial reaction is they likely just signed him to throw 100 innings and keep their rotation intact at that level and don't have any plans for him beyond that.

    This is the second of my friends/old teammates to play in the Dodgers organization. Gross.

    Please inform him that the Dodgers suck and that if Alyssa Millano offers to sleep with him because of his association with the Dodgers that he will get chlamydia.

    If he's pitching AAA with the Dodgers, he's not in Albuquerque.

    The Albuquerque Isotopes are a minor league baseball team based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The team, which plays in the Pacific Coast League, is the Triple-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

    2 out of 3 vs the Brewers. Cain was dealing tonight 7 innings, 4 hits, 1 earned 2 walks and 5 kis. Solid outing. Benji Molina with 4 Rbis today.

    I see that ManRam has decided to stir up some interesting controversy for the Dodgers home opener today vs the Giants.

    I can't think of a better time to announce that you eventually want to play somewhere else!

    They actually named the team after the team in the Simpsons. It was put to a public vote.

    That is an interesting way to choose the name of a team and totally unexpected from Albuquerque. It is more of a Shelbyville idea.....

    Bottom of the order giving Bills some much needed breathing room. Ethier with a solo shot from the 6 spot, then Kemp and Blake got on base, Bills sacrificed them over, and Furcal knocked them home. O-Hud kept his perfect day alive, knocking in Furcal. ManRam was given the IBB, and then Loney drew a walk, loading the bases and ending The Big Unit's day. Martin, managed to avoing being the first and last outs of the inning, by singling in Hudson and Ramirez. 7-1 good guys. 5 runs scored with 2 outs.

    I am jealous of the Dodgers offense, it is very good. Except for Casey Blake that guy sucks.

    No roadie for you, I take it?

    I am toying with going to the game tomorrow or Wed. Always a fun series.

    Also, did anyone check Wolf's line from yesterday? Did that guy start juicing over the weekend? If we get that guy to show, I like our chances much more than his first outing.
