Shockingly, I didn't see a thread for the Dodgers in general for 2013 (if I missed it please delete this thread mods).

Between Hanley's injuries, Kemp's suckiness, Kershaw's awesomeness, Ethier being Ethier, Puig on the far, the bullpen management, and Donnie Baseball on the hottest seat in the game I figure there's plenty to talk about.

Things that have gone right

Carl Crawford looks good so far
Adrian Gonzalez still does not have power but is getting rbi's
Ryu is a bit better than expected
Kershaw is still awesome
AJ Ellis is having another solid year.

THAT'S ALL.

Donnie Baseball has all but signed his walking papers. His recent comments that the team isnt getting the most out of its talent etc speak to the management, not the players. Hes complaining that they built an all star team but they dont play hard enough, arent mentally tough enough etc, that stuff comes from the top. Its his job to get the team ready and get the most out of it, by going on record with that stuff hes all but saying he cant do the job.

I never really understood that hire any way, career AL guy managing in the NL. Didnt seem like a good fit.

I agree and I think a new manager coupled with Hanley coming back and presumably staying healthy/productive could lead to quite a second half turnaround.

By the sounds of it I would imagine Kemp gets DL'd. Puig would make sense as a call up form that point.

Sorry to burst your bubble guys, but the consensus views according to most LA beat writers is that it will be Joc Pederson up next. He is their CF of the future and they don't want Puig playing that position. It has been stated by Colletti and the rest of management already before. Pederson has been a natural CF and also has been every bit as good as Puig. Power, speed and defense....he has it all. I get the whole money thing, but they will not call up Puig just yet to play Kemp's position.

Kemps hammy likely only 15 days or more like a month? Anyone have any educated guesses? Don't want to drop someone just for a 2 week pickup but if people think its more like a month injury, I'm going to scoop up Young Joc.

I'm holding both Joc and Puig for the news but think the Dodgers would make a mistake by not bringing Puig up now to see what he can do.
And all the greatest of the heroes
Started jumping from the books
They started wearing ones and zeros
Looking more and more like crooks
They stole the sunlight from the future
Took a sip, drank half the glass then put it back

I think it's time they move Crawford into an RBI spot like at very least #2 in the batting order because 13 RBI's for the year just is not going to cut it from a 20 million dollar ball player and with Ramirez coming back on Monday he can easily slot into the 3 hole.

As a Dodger fan, I have a hard time understanding all the love Dee Gordon gets. The guy struggles to hit his weight. As Vin Scully says, "You can't steal first base."

Why couldn't it be Kemp out 6 weeks instead of Stanton? Stanton was getting hot when he got hurt, no one is going to miss Kemp. Sigh.

Most of what I post is for giggles. Please do not take me seriously when I'm venting about a pitcher that just got bombed or a hitter in a 2 for 20 slump. It's all for effect and trying to make all my fellow rotoheads chuckle, so don't be "that guy", yeah you know what I'm talking about.
