Dodgers have dumpster…Braves have Dempster

The biggest name starting pitcher for this trade deadline was acquired  by Atlanta while the Dodgers continue to piece together their lineups from a refuse bin.  In fairness, if Zach Lee was demanded by the Cubs, that price would be too high for a 35 year old 2 month rental.

Today the team begins a series with the league leaders in batting Cardinals.

    Just got done reading the MLB article and loved this comment:

    “typical frank wren move…he loves 35+ year olds who are on the down slope of their careers.”

    Perhaps he’s Ned’s evil twin.

    I’ve also read that Kasten isn’t going to make any moves that would hurt our long term future, and since we don’t really have the prospects to land anyone of significance, they may wait until they see what’s available on the waiver wire.

    Ned must be as happy as a hog in slop.

    Hello all!,
    Why do the Dodgers always play 4 in St Louis?
    Hope all is well with you Brian!

    Last I heard, Dempster said it was not a deal….tweeted it himself. Unless things have change in the last hour or so.

      I also don’t think he was the answer for us. He is having a pretty good year but, all in all, not that great. I’d much rather have a “bat”.

  5. trublu4ever says:

    Wow…Ichiro is a Yankee!

  6. DodgerZona says:

    I was just to post that Tru…Wow indeed

  7. DodgerZona says:

    Ya i’d rather have a bat to Tru

  8. trublu4ever says:

    Okay, Billz, it’s up to you….don’t spoil it for us! GO DODGERS!

    • trublu4ever says:

      I’ve had it….time to unload this head case! I know it’s only the first inning but, it’s going to get worse!

    WTG Cruz!!!

  12. DodgerZona says:

    really like this kid…HR baby

  13. vl4eccjr says:

    I just saw it was 103 degrees at game time. With the humidity there in the gateway, it must be awful! UGH!!

    • trublu4ever says:

      Yes…..that’s what they were saying. The trainer said what the guys had to do to get ready for these games.

  14. trublu4ever says:

    What a blown opportunity that inning! Rivera is getting on my nerves…..and, Kennedy…well, he is Kennedy!

  15. Everything considered, Bills did a good job. At least he didn’t do his usual implosion.

  16. trublu4ever says:

    Way to go Mark! Thank-you!

  17. trublu4ever says:

    Nice shut down inning for Wright.

  18. Blech – didn’t need that, Beli. Think “control” – please!!!

  19. vl4eccjr says:

    Belisario still aint right! Is his arm going dead? Once again, his velocity is down, and his command of the strike zone is not what it was.

  20. trublu4ever says:

    Let’s have a 1-2-3 inning Kenley! Make it easy on yourself and more importantly, ME!

  21. Oh, Kenley, my nails don’t taste good.

  22. Whew – a big K – WE WIN!!!

  23. vl4eccjr says:

    Nice job Kenley!!!

  24. enchantedbeaver says:

    Do my eyes deceive me or did Billz actually get a W?

  25. koufax1963 says:

    I had my shot! Bils seemed very comfortable. Love all the wins.

  26. kahliforni says:

    Dee must be stunned at Cruz’ performance. Cruz makes Gordon look like a little boy. I wouldn’t trade Zach Lee. I wouldn’t trade ANY decent young arms. The Dodgers are not one or two players away. They are maybe one winter away.

  27. grizzy says:

    I hope it is true that Dempster is going elsewhere. Selling the farm for a rental makes no since,unless he was the final piece of the puzzle. As pointed out above, several players are needed to get deep into the playoffs. This is going to require patience.
