Some Trash Words About Cody Ross...

賽前:
LA記者開始嘴砲Lofton與Nomar的DL期限快到了(不過他們能及時出來嗎?連練揮棒、復健賽的影子都沒有)。

LA記者:在Lofton歸隊後,誰將被移出active roster?
Little:可能是Ross吧...blah blah blah

Ross:喵的死老頭,雙響砲給你看!賽後:
Little:呃...可能還要再考慮考慮...

He's the first Dodger to drive in seven runs since Shawn Green on May 23, 2002. He's also just the second active player, along with Craig Counsell, to have his first two homers be grand slams. Ross' previous homer came with the Tigers in 2003. Ross was expected to be designated for assignment once Kenny Lofton returned, but the may have to explore alternatives because of his 6-for-12 start. They could send down James Loney, delaying a decision on Ross until Nomar Garciaparra returns. They'll also continue to explore whether there's any trade interest in the 25-year-old.
Ross當然沒有這麼神,我認為他雖沒有好到什麼地方去,但總比坐在DL領錢的那幾位來的有用。

我不太想praise他的原因還有一個:去年四月打完我嘴砲說Jason Repko給我一種04年Jayson Werth的感覺,結果Repko就喇賽到季末給大家看,所以再觀察Ross看看也不遲。

至於我們的牛棚和rotation真的有那麼糟嗎?當然不,然而也並沒有媒體(如美國ESPN)寫得那樣優秀,像Lowe只是隻工作馬,這點是不會變的。

老實說我覺得道奇目前的rotation就只有工作馬而已...

不會啊...



Penny沒受傷生龍活虎的時候看起來像是超強NO.2


受傷要死不活的時候連隻工作馬都不算...XD

據Penny說他04年之前有在丟spit ball...今年他春訓也有丟,看起來春訓練的還頗有效嘛(諷)。

別忘了 Dodgers 現在的 active roster 裡有 12 個投手,以目前的狀況,就算 Ross 沒有那兩發 HRs,他也不該是下一個被 DFA 的人,帶了 12 個投手本來就是有點荒唐的事。Carter (DFA)、Osoria (optioned down)、Hamulack (optioned down) 或是 Brazoban (DL) 都可以開出空缺來。

Penny,其實如 ako 兄所說的....他是一個 workhorse to No.2 的好投手,但他的 split.....說真的,我特別回頭看了一下他對 PHI 的比賽,沒有什麼太深刻的印象。

啊,我只是講個垃圾話而已,Penny是個不錯的No.2沒錯。

至於roster要怎樣調度我並不想管,Dodger Thought那裡還有提到左手代打嚴重不足的問題,此外,在牛棚失效的時候,什麼牛看起來都很糟,這不會是多大的問題,問題在現在的投教能否把牛隻調整回來而已,舉個反例:如Carrara在有效的時候,看起來也似乎頗有一回事(雖說他根本不怎樣)。

Carter或許就是rich man's Carrara罷了,至少他沒進DL,還能工作(垃圾話)。

話說Carrara離開Dodgers馬上就變身replacement level player,加入Dodgers又好用的不像話......

啊 我們現在有投教嗎? XD

Morikawa said...

Dodgers' Pitching Coach? Theoretically, yes; substantially, nope.

We lost "Dugout-Trio-Jim" (Tracy, Colborn and Lett) last offseason, and Colby is no doubt the last one you want him to leave.
