HEY KIDS ~

Spring training is just 3 weeks away for my boys. Playing in a new location other than DODGERTOWN. Our boy MANNY is still un-signed with an offer for $45 million guaranteed for 2 years...chump change for him I guess. We have lost Lowe and Penny, Kent has retired, our best left-hander reliever Beimel is a free agent. But we did dump Andruw Jones and will pay him for life each year more than I will earn in my entire life and we did sign that awesome :rofl: 218 avg. 3 HR hitter last year Brad Ausmus and another druggie we used to have G. Mota and are looking to sign another loser we dumped last year, Randy Wolf.

How are things in your park going?

I'm counting down the days till Spring training... 2 weeks from today for P/C... Thank goodness the Red Sox finally re-signed Jason Varitek (catcher)... He's is the 'glue'... amazing with rookie pitchers and studying every aspect of the game... I feel pretty secure with the roster so far...

Gary where did Derek Lowe go ? I suppose I could look at the site.. Poor Manny, nobody wants him eh'... are you guys stuck with him ? Was it worth it last season ??

Yep, it's good to have Jason Varitek on board.

Making reservations at the Ritz so that SweetCaroline and I can host Gary for the World Series this year.

Woo-Hoo I was so glad to see this thread, not much longer to go.

So Gary did you hear that Albert Pujols put out word that he would like Manny to play for the Cardinals. He talks to him apparently on the phone :D
The powers that be here have already said they have no interest in signing him. They are really cheap with our money.

Let me think what have we done this off season? Not much of anything. They signed Greene and of course Ring.

We've lost Springer :(, Miles :(, Looper and a bunch of other people that I was glad to see go.

SWEET-C Lowe went to the Braves and finally married the reporter he left his wife for. It was well worth it to have MANNY with us last year....would never have made the play-offs without him. We are not stuck with him, his contract is over (actually the DODGERS didn't pay him anything...just lost a player in the 3-way trade) they have made an offer that is very good...but only for 2 years.

BILL yes...we can discuss baseball before the Super Bowl is over as long as it's under the table.

BIG BIRD ~ Word around here is that nobody is coming close to giving MANNY what he wants. We have the only legit offer on the table right now from what appears to be "truth"...one just never knows!

Haven't heard a lot from the Rockies (but I haven't been looking for the news yet... seems like football needs to be completed before moving on.).
We signed Jimenez to a few more years, so that's a good thing!

Gary - Just read this on the web, supposedly from the Los Angeles Times:

By Tony Jackson on February 3, 2009 12:48 AM

I have no other details, other than that Scott met with Ned Colletti late tonight and told him Manny wouldn't accept the Dodgers' one-year, $25 million offer. Not sure exactly what this means, but it wouldn't shock me if this is the end of it and the Dodgers simply move on. And if that happens, who knows where Manny will end up and when he will get there? More on this tomorrow, I'm sure.


So, are your guys now going to offer him real money?

Slashnl
02-03-2009, 03:16 PM
One year.... $25 million.... unacceptable.....

Hey Manny, explain your logic to all of the people across the country who have lost their jobs. I guess the economy doesn't affect everyone quite the same.

EZMONEY
02-03-2009, 11:27 PM
Manny didn't accept the 2 year 45 million offer 2 months ago either.

It's a hrad knock life for Manny these days.....

nobody seems to want him...

what a disgrace....only 25 million for a year....

can't feed a family on that can we TEAM?

MaryEllen
02-03-2009, 11:52 PM
I think he's not accepting the deal because he's waiting for another team to want him. It's a shift to win all the time on the Red Sox then go to the Dodgers, who aren't as consistent.

:mad:

So we dump Brad Penny ~ Derek Lowe ~ Chan Ho Park ~ Joe Beimel and Takashi Saito

then yesterday we sign Randy Wolf ...WHO WE DUMPED LAST YEAR! for

a guaranteed 5 million and a chance to earn 8 million...

makes a lot of sense since he went 12-12 with an era of forever last year :mad:

guess it was just a reward since he went 9-6 with an era of almost 5 when he pitched here last.

I just don't get it...I really don't :mad:

At least we brought back Randy Wolf, after dumping him a few years back....

he left a 28 million - 3 yr deal on the table with the Astros that was pulled

we signed him for a year for 5 MILLION...

now he can feed his family in these tough economic times....whew!

That will amount to Half A MILLION per win....if we are lucky.....really-really lucky!

Should be interesting as they have moved Skip Schumaker to 2nd base from the outfield. He is not a second baseman.

Been wondering where Manny was hiding. It's right in today's paper:

PHOENIX (AP) -Manny Ramirez has rejected yet another offer from the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Dodgers announced Thursday night the star outfielder's agent Scott Boras had declined a $25 million, one-year contract with a $20 million player option for 2010. It was the club's fourth offer to Ramirez this offseason.

"We want Manny back, but we feel we are negotiating against ourselves," Dodgers owner Frank McCourt said in a statement. "When his agent finds those 'serious offers' from other clubs, we'll be happy to restart the negotiations." So, Gary, when are you guys gonna get with the serious money?

Clydegirl

Bill that's crazy.

Does he not know what is going on in the country at the monent.

Slashnl
02-27-2009, 09:16 AM
It would be poetic justice if he didn't get any deal. With the economy the way it is and what ordinary people have to live through, I'm sure he is not getting much sympathy from anyone. But I am also sure that he isn't too concerned with what people think about him.

Clydegirl

Congrats Gary (as well as the Dodgers management) for bringing Manny back Home, per:

Manny Ramirez and the Los Angeles Dodgers finally agreed on a deal to bring the mercurial slugger back to Tinseltown.

Following a meeting with team management early Wednesday morning, Ramirez agreed to a two-year, $45 million deal to return to the Dodgers, according to numerous reports.

Ramirez needs to pass a physical before he can officially rejoin the Dodgers, who are expected to formally announce the deal Wednesday.
Hope you guys have a slugging year.

(We'll see you in Boston for the World Series; you're still invited to have tea with SweetCaroline and me before the games.)

Glad to see the Manny issue settled for you Gary.

I have no idea Diane.

We are not strong in pitching. A lot is being put on Chris Carpenter being healthy and the bullpen could be better.

We have moved an outfielder to 2nd base, have to see how that goes.

Spring training has been pretty good so far.

Of course we have Albert which is :carrot: :carrot:

Well Curt Schilling announced his retirement today... Mr. Clutch... They used to put the camera in the duggout at the end of innings and he would be sitting there with his 'notebook'... Apparently writing every detail about how effective he was against each batter...
and don't even get me started on the bloody sock... that was one of the most nerve-racking games I have ever watched... Everyone was wondering when he was going to have to come out of the game...

I saw him last Summer at a political fund-raiser he and his wife were very friendly (but he did want my money) HA-HA... I will miss him a lot...

Say Goodnight Curt... We love ya !!

GARY... you're a man of few words lately, you OK ?? or are the visions of baseballs dancing in your head ?

Here ya go BIG BIRD ~


On October 19, 2004 Schilling won Game 6 of the 2004 American League Championship Series against the New York Yankees. Notably, he won this game playing on an injured ankle - the same injuries that contributed to his disastrous outing in Game 1 of the ALCS. These injuries were so acute that by the end of his performance that day his white sock was soaked with blood.

The win forced a Game 7, making the Red Sox the first team in MLB history to come back from a three-games-to-none deficit. The Red Sox would go on to win Game 7 and the ALCS and make their first World Series appearance since 1986. Schilling pitched (and won) Game 2 of the 2004 World Series for the Red Sox against the St. Louis Cardinals. In both series, he had to have the tendon in his right ankle stabilized repeatedly, in what has become known as the Schilling Tendon Procedure, after the tendon sheath was torn during his Game 1 ALDS appearance against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. As in Game 6 of the ALCS, Schilling's sock was soaked with blood from the sutures used in this medical procedure, but he still managed to pitch seven strong innings, giving up one run on four hits, and striking out four. This second bloody sock was placed in the Baseball Hall of Fame after Boston's victory over St. Louis in the World Series. A 4-game sweep of the World Series gave Boston its first World Series championship since 1918

Wohooo baseball!

I haven't posted much here lately, but I definitely need to post in this thread.

My guys are looking pretty good this spring. Pretty much all of them were away the WBC most of ST, which was fun they all did pretty well, but its nice to have the team finally back together again.

I was hoping my team would be the ones to snatch up Manny, but they just didn't have the money for him. But I am very happy with their acquisitions of Frankie Rodriguez and JJ Putz, should take the Mets from one of the worst bullpens around to one of the best. Hopefully the rest of the team holds up.

I can't wait until next Monday!

One of my son's friends just might bleed DODGER BLUE this year...our fingers are crossed! Yesterday's Los Angeles Times printed the following...

Short hops

Brian Mazone's decision to decline an invitation to pitch for Italy in the World Baseball Classic is paying off, as he has made himself a candidate to make the club as a situational left-hander. A non-roster invitee, Mazone tossed a scoreless inning to pick up his second save of the spring and lower his earned-run average to 1.13. He didn't give up his first run of the spring until Wednesday. Mazone, 32, has never pitched in the big leagues. He was in the Philadelphia Phillies' organization last year.

EZMONEY
03-30-2009, 11:21 PM
OH NO! My son's friend Brian Mazone may not make the squad....DANG!

Los Angeles Times tonight...

Because the Dodgers wanted Ohman to start the season in triple-A Albuquerque, they signed him to a minor league contract. If Ohman gets called up -- something General Manager Ned Colletti said will happen unless Ohman is injured -- he'll earn a base salary of $1.35 million this season. Ohman can opt out of the contract if he isn't promoted by April 14.

The deal includes a $2.2-million option for 2010.

"We think he answers our need for a lefty in the pen," Colletti said.


Manager Joe Torre said Ohman would travel with the Dodgers to Tucson on Tuesday to face the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Erick Threets and Brian Mazone were the leading candidates to be the Dodgers' main left-hander out of the bullpen this season until they signed Ohman. One of them will probably be on the Dodgers' roster until Ohman is called up.

Hi Clydegirl... Yes, I'll be able to go, we are all set. They were showing people who called in sick to go to game.. said they were heading for work to tell their bosses they had made a miraculous recovery and suffer a set back tomorrow... lol

As for the 300 or so fans who have been camped out in the hopes of getting a ticket -- some since Saturday -- they were given slips explaining the teams ticket policy, and if they showed up before 1 p.m. Tuesday, they will be given preference.

A team official said they wanted to respect the integrity of the opening day line.

THAT MY FRIENDS, is going to **ss people off in a big way... IMO, those over night lines 'are' part of big games ! It's good PR, hence the simple theory of supply in demand... C'mon Mr. Henry... thanks for the room to vent...

What a day... What a game... Sox win 5-3

Well guys it was worth the wait.. I decided I want to live at Fenway ! Just set myself up in one of EMC boxes :D
I heard a guy say it should be made the 8th wonder of the world.. lol

We were a little late getting into our seats and missed the 'surprise' entry of players from the grandstand seats, high-fiving all the way down the rows.. people were flipping out.. I was told they weren't anywhere near us, Thank goodness, I would have died if I missed that !

I was honored to be sitting in back of a 24 year old young man who is being deployed to Afghanistan at the end of the month, his 3rd tour.. when we shook his hand and thanked him for his service he said "thank you but its my job maam'" ... oh geez.. I had tears in my eyes... it was his first game ever... people were buying him food and souvineirs... he couldn't hold it all in his lap.

It was just a great day... and everyone sang to me during the 8th inning..
I was treated to a new hat and shirt :yay:

The parker and snow pants came in handy, it was FREEZING... nothing like April baseball in Boston..

Ok... sorry to go on and on.. I have to go catch up on what all of your teams have done... nite all...

I actually changed the station when we were down by 7 early... but I can't 'tune out' for long... watched a guy from Mass win his 3rd on Jeopardy.

SWEET game !! Phase I of RSNation depression has lifted...
I am, however, very concerned about Big Papi...BA is 176. I think he's hurting, wrist ?, knee ? its very early, but he worries me....

Hmmm... :dunno: Dodgers in First Place, Red Sox in Last Place..... :shrug: Hmmmm

Good game tonight... we won 10-8... that's 2 in a row :encore: .. but these games have not been easy !

Youkilis showed no signs of harm after getting hit in the head/helmet last night, he hit the deck...and popped back up w/in seconds... I hate that sound !! makes me sick... people still think of Tony C when that happens...

Nah TEAM I never worry if you are getting enough sleep! I was just noticing that some of you post after I do at night and was wondering, based on the times, if you were still up or posting as you get up. I have been known to post around 9pm here then off to bed then post before 5am, since, like Bill, I get up between 3am and 5am depending on where I am working.
