    I’m hearing 6 years….$145M……and, we are supposedly not done.

  2. ZonaDodger says:

    Wow is right…..Can we say overpay lol….Now i guess there after Anibal Sanchez to

  3. ZonaDodger says:

    Hopefully that’s the end of Harang and Capuano

  4. ZonaDodger says:

    Well i can say this…At least we don’t have that Ahole McCourt anymore cause none of this would of happened

  5. vl4eccjr says:

    I don’t believe this is chiseled in stone just yet.
    I still can’t believe what Victorino & Russell Martin are going to make this year!

  6. What a difference a year makes! Going from the butt of jokes to a major force to be reckoned with – at least on paper for now. Can hardly wait for spring training 🙂

  7. kahliforni says:

    Ryu might be a great pitcher, but how sweet would it be if the Dodgers put $25 million back in their vault and told Boras to go f**k himself. With Kershaw, Greinke, Beckett and two more from the pool of four (Billingsley, Lilly, Capuano, and Harang) Boras, er, I mean Ryu, might be the odd man out.

    • enchantedbeaver says:

      Be even funnier if they let him go back to Korea this year, then were the high bidder again next year and could do it all over again.

      • messagebear says:

        If you have the money to outbid the other teams just for the right to negotiate, and you get that money back if no deal is struck, you could just outbid all the other teams to keep the guy away from everybody else. If Boras gets burned in the process, I can’t say that I’d be unhappy with that approach.

  8. grizzy says:

    Feast or famine?
    Apparently Grienke will be in the rotation next season. Too much money for too long a period, but that’s what it takes now. If we are going to invest that heavily in pitching, we’ll need a real shortstop. We’d need one of those if we didn’t, anyway. Spring training will be most interesting.

  9. Who would believe that we’d come to this when we were still under the McCourt era? This is truly unbelievable. New ownership is really and truly making a bid to catch the Giants and pass them. Well one thing is for sure, if it doesn’t work out for the best, we CAN’T say that this team isn’t really trying.

  10. 32and53fan says:

    I’m glad they got Greinke, but the price they had to pay is ridulous. Of course the salaries of the other stars on the team is equally absurd. I hope Zack can live up to his billing.

    It is crazy what MLB players get paid these days while some of us are barely surviving financially. It would take me 1065 years to equal what Grienke will make in one year.

  11. ZonaDodger says:

    Dylan Hernandez ‏

    Ryu Hyun-jin has signed with the Dodgers

  12. enchantedbeaver says:

    All these signing leave me feeling, you know, a little dirty.

    I’ll take them though.

    With all this new-found pitching, now there’s no reason not to package Gordon and Capuano/Harang plus a couple lower level prospects and get Seager from Seattle. Might be nice having brothers on the team again.

  13. ZonaDodger says:

    I’d go for that trade enchanted

  14. This is like a dream come true. The Dodgers see who they want and go out and get them without any financial difficulties.

  15. JhallWally says:

    Wow!! I guess we have a surplus of starting pitching. Heh, heh, if that is really possible. Considering that Lilly and Billz are coming off major injury issues and are questionable. And, probably not very attractive as trade fodder. The way I see it is, we trade one of the Capuano/Harang duo. Packaged with Dee Gordon and a prospect, maybe we can get a real 3rd baseman or a nice cache of really good prospects. Damn, should have kept Beltre. We would have overpaid in the first few years, but, the way things have evolved, he would be a bargain on the end of a 10 year contract.

  16. JhallWally says:

    I really hope Time Warner takes the TV contract away from Fox. Or at least makes them pay thru the nose and ass.. I hate Fox. Not only did they run the franchise into the ground when they owned it, they enabled Frank to purchase the franchise and further discredit, deface, and make a mockery of it. F**K Fox!!!!!!!!

  17. trublu4ever says:

    Apparently, Ryu will be sporting good old #99.

  18. I don’t know how long the Dodgers can hold on to Harang Capuano and Lilly but it would be good to see how Kershaw (hip) and Billingsley (arm) come back before they start trading the other three away. Lilly wasn’t in good health either, so I don’t know how they stand with him.
    Well like most everything, we’ll just have to see what happens.

  19. crash24now says:

    How far we have come from the days when we filled out the starting rotation with the likes of:

    Brett “Bombko” Tomko
    Mark “Lurch” Hendrickson
    Charlie Haeger “Slacks”
    Jon Ely
    Esteban Loaiza
    Jason Schmidt
    Ramon Ortiz

    Here’s to the end of those days.

  20. lbirken says:

    I would say the pressure is on the entire team to perform.

    • nellyjune says:

      No kidding!! We have become the Yankees of the west coast, and we better play like them too. I understand they didn’t go all the way this past year, but they are always a team to be concerned about when you are the opponent that is due to play them. So, the Dodgers need to be living up to those expectations as well.

    • You can say that again and again. Yes the Dodgers are expected to win now and I doubt if there’ll be any satifaction with anything less than a World Championship.
      I think we entered a new era and have a team that will go after the players they need without hesitation or excuses.
      We may not win next year or every year but I’m sure that this team will be far more competitive than they have been.
      I know one thing, my hopes are a lot higher.

  21. kahliforni says:

    Personally, I think Donnie is in way over his head. With apologies to Kobe, Donnie now has a “Big Boy” team.

  22. koufax1963 says:

    Happy Season’s Greeting my fellow dodgers and bloggers fans,
    Everyone in dodgersland should be elated at this news. I don’t care about the money spent as long as the performance shines, the cable deal will take care of what was spent, and Kasten and Magic have that under control. Certainly we must see what is done between the chalk lines now. Can we compete with our northern rival, perhaps! I have concerns about offence now. You know the concern: is matt healthy , is Dre healthy, can he hit the lefties, can Gonzo be the anchor in the 4 hole, will hanley’s bat make up for his glove, was cruz a late season fluke or a developing stud and crawford is a dice roll. I don’t want to compare the dodgers to gnats, but one thing the cockroach chemistry of the gnats “never die” had was exactly that mentality, I haven’t seen it yet with this group of dodgers and I already had a sour taste of the overpayed/ underperforming from this group in the end of 2012. GO Dodgers!

  23. Thankfully the team will go through spring training together and have time to build their relationships/chemistry with each other. I definitely agree with Kahli about Donnie being in over his head. I am also a little concerned that the fans’ expectations may be a little too high. Gotta remember there’s 162 games to play each season and no matter how much talent you have, you’re gonna lose a few games now and then. But I’m a heck of a lot more optimistic this year than last 🙂 Go Dodgers!!

    • 32and53fan says:

      I am not too crazy about the decision to let HanleyRamirez play in the World Baseball Classic. He could miss over a month of Spring Training. The Dodgers would be better off if he reports with the rest of the position players and goes through the whole program and gets a chance to bond with his teammates and coaches. I don’t know if he will get enough work at shortstop to bring his defense up to Dodger standards.

  24. enchantedbeaver says:

    Early prediction:

    This team hovers around .500 into mid to late May before gelling and finishing the season with 99 wins.

  25. Dodger4life says:

    If enchanted won’t say it I will…100 wins. Of course just like Waylon Jennings I’ve always been crazy!

  26. trublu4ever says:

    Dodgers acquire Skip Schumacher from Cards for ss Jake Lemmerman.

  27. nedisajerk says:

    Schumaker is a local boy from Torrance where I was born but Ned should’ve tried to force the Cards to take Ely+Guerrier+Uribe lol. I hate trading for an over 30+ years old ult. player for an under 25 year old prospect. To bad Skip only making 1.5 millions and do we really need him? Herrera could fill that spot easy and the guy been in our system since 2003 but than again they can just plan cut there lose our trade Uribe to a desperate team clearing a spot for Skip hopefully is not Seller or Herrera.

    • nedisajerk says:

      Greinke was born in Orlando, Florida, the son of Marsha Ann (née Wilkin) and Donald Ray Greinke. He has a younger brother, Luke. Don was a history teacher who stressed the importance of education for the Greinke kids. Zack experienced social anxiety at school, finding it hard to “fit in” with his peers.

      When Greinke started playing baseball at Apopka High School, he was an infielder with a powerful bat and did not pitch at all. He looked up to slugger Mark McGwire. By the end of his high school career, he had batted over .400 and hit 31 home runs.

      Greinke became a pitcher by accident, as an experiment to see if his strong throwing arm would result in him being a good pitcher. As a senior in 2002, Greinke compiled a 9–2 record, a 0.55 ERA, and 118 strikeouts in 63 innings. After being named the Gatorade National Player of the Year, he was selected in the first round of the 2002 draft by the Kansas City Royals.

      Personal life

      Greinke is married to Miss Daytona Beach USA 2008 Emily Kuchar. Greinke met Kuchar in high school at Apopka High School. Kuchar is a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zack_Greinke

  28. We still have Hairston as well. But Schumaker is a bit younger. Ah well, competition isn’t a bad thing – I think :O

  29. I’m just hoping the pressure isn’t too great. Whatever, the slower the Dodgers are getting out of the gate will add to it. The part I like best is when a free agent becomes available in a position needed to be filled by the Dodgers, this ownersip won’t hesitate to make a move and maybe will hold on to our players longer and not let them move away for higher pay. Just thinking.

  30. trublu4ever says:

    Scott VanSlyke DFA…Uribe not!

    • enchantedbeaver says:

      Only think I can think of with Uribe is that MAYBE they think McGuire can rehabilitate him enough in ST to gain some value to trade him for a low level (a very very low level) prospect.

      Personally, Uribe would’ve been my first choice, but I would’ve let Sellers go too before Van Slyke.

  31. 32and53fan says:

    From KSDK.com in St. Louis:

    By Jordan Palmer
    Executive Producer

    (The Chirp) – News of the trade of Skip Schumaker to the Los Angeles Dodgers will not set the baseball world on fire, or be the top discussion topic among baseball pundits across the country, but here in St. Louis, it should be noticed that a popular player is leaving town.

    Why was Skip Schumaker so popular as Cardinal? He was never a “super star,” nor an All-Star for that matter. He never lit up the fanbase with towering home run’s or lengthy hit streaks. No, Schumaker captured the Cardinal Nation imagination by playing the “Cardinal Way.”

    The Cardinal Way is what is taught to every new ball player that comes to town. It defines a hardnosed style of play that is regarded now as a throwback style to the days of the Gas House Gang and Stan Musial. It is what is expected if you want to play in St. Louis.
    Skip understood the Cardinal Way. He played hard, wasn’t afraid to get dirty, stretch out for a fly ball, or to go head first into the wall. He was a hustler and played with grit. Cardinal fans love that.

    Skip put team first. Since the days of Fernando Vina, second base has been a question mark nearly every season. In 2009, the headline of Spring Training was that manager Tony La Russa asked Skip to learn to play second. Skip could always hit, and the idea was to keep his bat in the lineup as much as possible, but a position switch like that is not easy, but Skip gutted it out, and even though it wasn’t always pretty, he did the best he could. He played hard, and again always displayed the Cardinal Way. He was never a super star, and you got the impression that he didn’t care.

    But first and foremost I was struck by how in 2012, with his season pretty much ruined by two injuries, he still did forget what was really important, and took a role in helping out a friend. His best friend in life’s daughter was born with a rare disease in which treatment was possible but expensive. Skip organized a fund raising effort locally to benefit his friend and his family. He organized his teammates and the community to reach out and do what was right.

    Skip wasn’t a Cardinals super star, he was a role player, who engrained himself in the collective Cardinal Nation psyche with is hard nose play and grit. He was one of the good ones, and he’ll be missed.

  32. messagebear says:

    It sounds to me like we could use a few more players of Schumaker’s grit. Should be a good influence in the clubhouse and on the bench, something that may be essential with all of our overpaid and last year’s underachieving players.

  33. Maybe the “Cardinal Way” will rub off on the Dodgers.

  34. messagebear says:

    I think the so-called “Cardinal Way” is what we used to call the “Dodger Way”.

  35. trublu4ever says:

    Josh Hamilton is an Angel…..5 years $125M.

    • enchantedbeaver says:

      Texas is having a typical Ned offseason…

      Good gawd, we have to face Trout, Pujols and Hamilton? There’s some firepower there. If they had any pitching they might be scary.

      • koufax1963 says:

        I thought there was a earthquake is the southland, but it was just movement of big contracts, I see the Dodgers and Angels trying to prove “The west is the Best”

  36. trublu4ever says:

    Anibal Sanchez off the market…signed with Cubs.

  37. trublu4ever says:

    Oh, and earlier today, Dempster put on Red Sox.

  38. A lot of moving around out there, As usual, at this time of the year. I wonder if the Dodgers have plans for Capuano, Harang and Lilly. Will they keep one?

  39. lbirken says:

    Hard to believe it was not that long ago that the Dodgers filled out its roster with “dumpster diving”. Of course the new strategy leads to higher expectations and even more scrutiny for management and certainly to higher ticket prices down the road but winning something meaningful now would certainly make the fans happy. Still, I do hope the Dodgers spend some money on player development and go back to building teams from the ground up and filling it out with key signings.

    .
    The one thing the Dodgers obtained that no other club in all of baseball did was the surrounding land. As long as Los Angeles is a thriving metropolis that land will hold its value. Value that is no longer a guaranteed asset of the Dodgers.
    .
    Personally I think we were robbed of hallowed ground, albeit by whomever???
    .
    The pressure is on the owners to win, and win quickly!
    .
    Just my thoughts on the matter…

  41. Dodger4life says:

    Good Morning Everyone…
    .
    I apologize for being negative towards the team and the facts as I see it. I suppose change is inevitable and it isn’t that I don’t like the new ownership or the things that have transpired since they have taken over. They seem to be a smart group of investors/caretakers of our storied ball club, which so far speaks volumes compared to what we have endured in the recent past. I also suspect that if the Dodgers win and win often, the new generation of fans will embrace them and their ideas. I also can’t help but wonder what happens to the Dodgers legacy if the team doesn’t prosper on the field in the next 20 years or so…I suppose this would be easier to comprehend if Frank McCourt wasn’t still tied to anything Dodger related or Bud Selig was a commissioner that was more forthcoming about where his vision for the game was headed.
    .
    I know you have all seen the breakdown of how the team and surrounding property was acquired but here it is anyhow.
    .
    http://www.latimes.com/sports/baseball/mlb/dodgers/la-sp-guggenheim-chart-20121216,0,626618.story
    .
    In the article is states that $150 million was provided to form a partnership with Frank McCourt on the surrounding land (This we already knew about.) What I don’t believe we knew about (at least not factually) was the promise to join Frank in other undisclosed real estate transactions in the future. We can only take them at their word that the vision they have for the future of our beloved Dodgers is a valiant and noteworthy one. So I am skeptical to say the least and suppose that if they came forth with their plans (and I believe they have a plan, otherwise why would they promise Frank that they will commit funds to a future undisclosed deal?) upfront while the old guard of Dodger faithful are still shining brightly on the horizon my thoughts toward the future would be relaxed somewhat.
    .
    Anyhow I hope y’all are enjoying your Sunday and as always I hope for the best when it comes to our beloved team on and off the field of play.
    .
    Think Blue and Go Dodgers!

  42. Dodger4life says:

    P.S. ( I am going to apologize ahead of time for this remark) Where is our beloved DodgerEric??? I know he didn’t give up on us…that I believe would go against all of his beliefs. In the past he was a valiant and noteworthy advisery on everything Dodger related. I know I for one miss his knowledgeable comments and wisdom of all things good and not so good. I am curious to know what his thoughts are on the team, the ownership, the McCourt involvement, the changes to the stadium, Uribe’s swing and whether the grass should be blue or green…I guess I am just trying to say I hope all is well and I miss ya…(I hope you speak up soon, or we’re label to be watching baseball coached by Juanpy the Smurf on a blue turf…)
    .
    My apologies to the one and only Jaun as well…

  43. lbirken says:

    Dodger4life, I will give you my response to new Dodger ownership up to this point. Let me preface my remarks by saying I had reservations right from the start about the Guggenheim Group mostly because we knew so little much about the people behind this group and how this purchase was structured. We are beginning to learn more but right from the start we were mislead on purpose about the deal, Magic’s involvement and role and especially about the group’s dealings with Frank McCourt. There seemed to be a reluctance to divulge much about his involvement and we still do not know for sure why he had to be involved. I suspect it was the only way to get the deal done and I also think the Guggenheim folks were well aware that there would be a backlash about Frank still being involved even if that involvement were limited. Obviously the Guggenheim folks are not stupid and they know what they are doing but having Frank involved in any way still bothers me. Not sure why but it just does.

    What does this all mean? As I said, the Guggenheim folks are not stupid. They know the value of the media deals. Frank knew the value as well but thankfully could not hold on long enough. And it does not a genious to figure out the land Dodger Stadium sits on has tremendous value, assuming any permitting and zoning issues do not stand in the way. They say they are committed to Dodger Stadium and for now I think they are but who knows what will happen if Guggenheim purchases the AEG entity that is up for sale.

    At least we can say Guggenheim has put up the money to go after high profile free agents even if we can argue if this is the best path to take. Clearly they want to field a winner as soon as possible which will make the fans happy. Will ticket prices, concessions, parking, etc. go up with the increased payroll? We will have to wait and see but I suspect if the team does well and attendence increases, ticket prices will follow. In addition, they have tried to make improvements to the stadium to make the fan experience better.

    It has been said one reason Bud Selig and MLB wanted someone like McCourt as Dodger owner because he would not have the resources to become big spenders like the Yankees and Red Sox. Ironically, the Dodgers now have become just that while the Yankees, Red Sox and a few other big market teams have taken to cutting back on payroll. And I do wonder if this new ownership is keeping an eye on that team in Anaheim, whose owner cannot keep his eye off the Dodgers.

    I will leave Uribe’s swing to someone else. I will be surprised if we even see him take a swing in a Dodger uniform but then again I am surprised he is still on the roster.

  44. Dodger4life says:

    Well said lbirken
    .
    I agree that the new owners are smart business people, I also think Frank was a smart business person. Although I think Frank had a lot of well calculated luck factored into his final outcome. If as they say baseball is a thinking mans game, then so must be ownership of such an entity. Trying to evaluate the paying public’s reaction to your calculated visions for the future is a gamble as well as a science. Being several steps ahead of the normal line of thinking is a must. This is where Frank was and I assume still is most comfortable. And like you as well as, I assume, most every other knowledgeable follower this is what concerns me. They also say that hindsight is 20/20 but love is blind.
    .
    The new media deal which is estimated to be over 25 years at this point, is a big sum of money…And one would think that the guardians of the league would see to it that this is funneled back into it’s rightful place.
    .
    The surrounding land was valued at $300 million according to reports of the purchase price…once again speculating that this is a 50/50 partnership??? I am still waiting for that full disclosure and transparency thing we were promised in the beginning, which would make this so much easier to comprehend. This transaction which thanks to the guardians of the league… is no longer under their control. What do you suppose the value of $300 million worth of raw land overlooking L.A. will be worth in 25 years?…I’ll bet ya’ Frank has a good idea! I’ll bet ya’ Bud has a good idea! I’ll bet ya the Guggenheim group has a good idea! They also have a saying that states, “Out with the Old and In with the New”! I assume that if everything works out as planned…meaning as Mr. Walter claimed “I will be judged on championships”. The new faithful 25 years from now won’t even be bothered by the fact that this promised land once belonged to the team that they love and was swindled into private hands. I would even go as far to say that the McCourt name may even become tolerable in L.A. again.
    .
    http://www.truebluela.com/2012/12/12/3759714/dodgers-money
    .
    According to this article…Teams only have to be under the payroll cap for a full season, actually I think it is measured at the end of the season… In order to have a fresh new start. So I assume the Yankees and Red Sox will once again resume their competitive ways. I also believe both of these clubs have shorter media deals than what is being proposed for our club…making the surrounding land that much more of a loss to the organization…at least in my eye’s.
    .
    lbirk what ever happens with the prices in the future, I hope and pray that all the longtime faithful can still enjoy and afford to introduce new minds to the game and team we love so much…I know how much time and resources good folk’s such as yourself have invested up to this point.
    .
    I have no comment on Uribe’s swing either…I do hope the grass is always green though.
    .
    Think Blue and Go Dodgers!!

  45. JhallWally says:

    Where there is smoke there is fire. I think the Dodgers are seriously shopping Ethier. Sorry gals, but, I think it is a good move.

    ://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2012/12/dodgers-shopping-andre-ethier.html

    • When trading someone of Ethier’s caliber, The team must come back with the better of the deal. No one likes to see an everyday player pluck from the lineup in some meaningless trade.
      If it has to be done, so be it,That’s why you shouldn’t buy jerseys and T-shirts with players’ names on the backs.

    • The story has been refuted – multiple times. Wish the writers could find something worthwhile to report on.

  46. koufax1963 says:

    I Imagine there will be alot of Dodgers “moves” reported, just because the dodgers are the team with the moves and money to support that, all frivilous to sell print. I can understand being low key about McCourt involment with the land around The Ravine, but to give Dre a large contract last year and then send him off within the year has earmarkings of a thoughtless mangement team, and that is not what I have observed from this ownership. I may be wrong, but if Team Kasten behaves this way, I may change my thought on how determined and focuesed they have been to fill voids in the Dodgers roster. Did we need a 1B, they got it. Did we need front line SP, they got it. Do we need Uribe, whoops, they missed that one. From what I read, it is two AL teams inquiring about acquring DRE not the other way around. Sure, talk to us, but to remove Dre from wearing Dodger Blue, especially after he has had the necessary surgeries, little pinky healed and having Maguire there to fix hitting problems, I say Dre Stays. I would say Dre will be here longer than both Donnie and Ned, if this season does not go well. Show me an Upgrade to Dre and make that deal, and I will be the first to say “I missed that call”

  47. crash24now says:

    If you’re going to trade Dre, don’t trade him for somebody older and less talented. Nothing against Swisher, but the only aspect about him that is better than Dre is that he’s a switch-hitter. I long for a return to Dre’s heyday – 2009 with 31 HRs, 106 RBI, and seemingly a walk-off hit every time we turned around. Will he get back to it? I don’t know, but if I were the Dodgers, that would be my bet.

  48. I think they’re being overly optimistic about Crawford being ready by the start of the season, which wouldn’t be condusive to trading Dre now unless you could get a butt-load of talent back (or an everyday 3B.)

    Dre has a history of starting out strong, then going away after June starts, which should be when Crawford’s really ready to play. Ergo, I’d get he best Dre has to offer until the trade deadline, then flip him for a 2B/3B while his value is hopefully higher.

    • lbirken says:

      I agree, there really is no need to trade Andre now unless the deal is so one sided in favor of the Dodgers, and I see that as unlikely.

      As for the transparency we were promised by Guggenheim, I would not put much faith in getting much of that. These people are smart and will let us know what they want us to know and when. That being said, I do have a lot of faith in Stan Kasten, at least on the baseball side of things.

    • JhallWally says:

      Ethier is a super star in April and May. After that, he tanks. He is totally overrated and now, overpaid. I’m with Beav, ride his hot start and trade him in June or July when his stock is still high. From the All Star break on, he hasn’t shown up or been a difference maker.

  49. kahliforni says:

    The Ethier rumors are supposedly based on clubs calling the Dodgers, not vice versa. I mean, what if the Mariners call and offer Felix Hernandez? Ethier’s long-term stay with the Dodgers will depend upon two things, in my opinion: 1) Yasiel Puig and 2) Ethier’s performance against lefties. Not that what I said is an earth-shattering insight. It’s just that I’m bored and want to say hey!

  50. Too bad McGwire was a right handed batter, I think it could’ve helped Ethier if he batted left handed, Maybe, I don’t know.
    I think if Ethier didn’t have this touble, he’d probably would be HOF bound.
    I’d really hate to see this corrected after he’s traded.
    I would imagine the injuries to Kemp and Crawford will hold up the Dodgers trading Ethier, until they see what’s up with the other two.
    Just my opinion.

  51. Dodger4life says:

    Morning everyone…
    .
    I love Ethier, mainly for the fact that he is a clutch guy. I agree that he has struggled a bunch against lefties, He also seems to find some nagging injury somewhere along the way. I also agree with Khali that the only thing blocking Yasiel Puig, is Yasiel Puig…The Dodgers spent a small fortune in obtaining him. I was just reading the comment section over at TBLA and the scuttlebutt is that he has an attitude problem??? This is just what was being discussed. ( Although, if true I don’t see him fitting in very well with this current group) That being said… what do we really know about him though.
    .
    If the M’s offer Felix Hernandez, I make the deal, as long as we can resign him to an affordable contract.
    .
    Speaking of affordable contracts…Kershaw’s future is looking pretty sharp as far as breaking the bank,

    John Ely traded to Stros

  53. Is something else afoot? With Ely gone the 40 man is at 39.

    Dodgers sent 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke outright to Triple-A Albuquerque…Surprised he didn’t get claimed or traded

    • Can’t say I’m surprized Zona. Van Slyke is typical of a McCourt ERA farmhand – more hype than talent. AAA is probably his ceiling, and his 3-run PH HR was his 15 minutes (or more like 15 seconds) of fame.
