Enough is enough!!!


The way the Dodgers are playing is frustrating and really embarrassing.  The sentiments expressed here are also seen at lots of places in the blogosphere and other Internet sites. This is a guest post that Andre Hannie wrote on Facebook.  I think it sums up quite nicely.

This unbelievable BULLSHIT I land from my flight home from Boston only to see that we lost 5-2 to got dam Madres Kershaw gives up 4 earned runs on 7 hits against the fucking Madres can you tell how pissed off I am fuck it Mattingly needs to be fired NOW !!! Stan Kasten Magic Johnson & Mark Walter. I can’t take this SHIT NO MORE THIS there is NO FUCKING REASON WE SHOULD CONTINUE TO FALL
FURTHER & further deeper in to last place it’s embarrassing especially with $230 million payroll & you wonder why the haters are laughing at us this FUCKING BULLSHIT #rant done GOT DAMMMMMMMMIT!!!!!!!!!’ And yes I am home…. — feeling annoyed at American Airlines Terminal 4.

      🙂 Totally!!!!

      Could not have said it better myself……. LOL!!!

    • JhallWally says:

      Well maybe, F*cking Unacceptable…..
      Again, my question is, why in the hell are Nedcompoop and Dildon still here.. They are the two constants from the underachievement of the last 3 years…..
      The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing and expect a different outcome….. Fire these incompetent a**holes….. Try something different.. Hell, what have you got to lose???????????

      You deserve better than this mess Tru… This crap is a slap in the face of all the Dodger faithful…..

  3. grizzy says:

    I’m not even pissed off anymore, just numb. I still check the scores and this website and I make a point of wearing my Dodger gear. No fair weather fans around here. This is just plain embarrassing and unacceptable. This beyond pathetic.

  4. ZonaDodger says:

    Hello…That’s all i do to is go to the web site and see what the score is….I can’t watch anymore….Pathetic

  5. messagebear says:

    Boy, and I thought I was being outspoken!

    I’m just a teddy bear by comparison.

    • 32and53fan says:

      Maybe you should make up some Dodger Fan bears with scowls on their faces, holding a bat and “Unacceptable!”, “Pathetic!” and “100% Bullshit” shirts and Dodger caps. You can sell them online; I don’t think the P.C. Dodgers would stock them in their stores.
      Just send me some royalties until you get the Cease and Desist letter from the Dodger lawyers ;-).

  6. JhallWally says:

    Incompetent GM (he built the mess) + inept manager (he is not capable of abstract thought or managing) = last place…….

  7. Andre Hannie says:

    I’ve reached my breaking point as a loyal Dodger fan that I am season ticket holder dedicated fan evening driving down to San Diego for the weekend to watch them play enough is enough. Us fans can’t take no more of this SHIT!!!! If you would have told me when the season started that 70 games in we be 12 games under 500 & buried in last place I would have lost the house & told you that you are f’en IDIOT!!! Smh!!! UGH!!!!

  8. oldbrooklynfan says:

    This is truly unbelievable. I didn’t buy into the hype when all these deals were made and all that money was spent and now I’m glad I didn’t. So now I’m not as disappointed as many of you are but I didn’t expect a below .500 team.
    I can’t help but feel that we hit rock bottom, over and over again. It just seems sooner or later the fortune of this team will turn around. We have to reach a turning point.
    These things usually happen when you least expect it. Most likely it will when the team is so far out of it. that the only hope is that next year will be better.
    That said, this is probably the most frustrating season since maybe 1992 when they lost 99 games. At least that year I hardly watched them play because of a lack of a computer and pay for view TV.
    Who’s to blame? The players, Colletti, Mattingly, ownership…Time will tell.

  9. crash24now says:

    The front office effort over the next 39 days should be focused on:

    (1) Scouring the A, AA, AAA teams of other MLB organizations to find the hidden gems. Our scouts should be identifying which young players we are going to acquire that will help us rebuild the farm system. That’s the only way we’re going to compete over the next 4-8 years.

    (2) Put everybody on the trading block that is over 30. This includes Dre, Gonzalez, Uribe, Lilly, Crawford, Ellis, Ellis, Capuano, Guerrier, etc. I’d add Belisario. Fire Sale. Everything goes. There will be teams looking for added pieces that will help them get to and compete in the playoffs.

    (3) Don’t worry about filling out the 25-man roster. I’m talking about a total rebuild. We won’t be competitive in 2013, but we’re already not competitive. We likely won’t be competitive in 2014. We are looking to 2015 and beyond.

    (4) We need to be back in the hunt for the World Series and that won’t realistically happen in 2013 or 2014 just sitting on our hands and going with the status quo.

    (5) Given the above, it really doesn’t matter whether Donnie gets the axe tomorrow or at the end of the season.

    (6) Don’t let Ned execute on the above plan. He is incompetent. If you don’t want to fire him today, then make him a “Special Assistant that kisses Stan Kasten’s Butt” for the next six months. Hire someone who knows what the hell they are doing.

  10. lbirken says:

    As I recall when the season began, most of us were cautiously optimistic about this season, wanting to believe play on the field would improve and happy the distractions from the McCourts would be a thing of the past. We had questions about the starting pitching and knew there could still be some health issues. But there were some of you who flat out said this team would be no better than .500 while most of us felt the team should make the playoffs. Those who did not like Ned and Donnie then made it clear even a winning team would not change their opinions on the manager or GM but seemed willing to give new ownership the benefit of the doubt.

    No matter what anyone thought then, even the detractors, could not have seen this coming: a team in last place, regardless of the payroll. Yes, we all knew the team had some holes and question marks at certain positions but there was nothing to suggest this team would struggle the way it has. So who or what is to blame?

    For starters, blame Hanley Ramirez for getting hurt in the WBC. Blame Mark Ellis for his injuries. Blame Matt Kemp, not just for getting injured but for his slow start even though we will never know for sure if he was healthy, blame Andre Ethier, for his sudden lack of hitting ability (until recently), blame the whole team for a lack of power or ability to drive in runs, blame Mark McGwire for not being able to help the hitters (although I think he does know how to teach hitting), blame Kershaw for not being as dominate as we all know he can be (and then cut him some slack for the lack of run support), blame Beckett for not being very good and then blame him for breaking down, blame Greinke for throwing at unstable hitters and for leading with his shoulder, blame Belisario and League for forgetting how to pitch, blame Lilly and Cappy for their injuries, blame the entire bullpen for blowing so many games, blame Donnie for his continued use of these pitchers although he has to use the players available at the time and blame him for his ever changing lineups, blame Ned for his optimism that I believe is part of every GM’s DNA that every player he signs can help the team win and blame him for not recognizing players who can’t, blame the entire team for not being able to put together a winning streak or changing momentum in its favor, blame Kasten and Company for knowing the organization has a lot of issues but still trying to use what seem to be unlimited financial resources to try to put a winning team on the field now while believing this is really not the way to go in the future, blame Guggenheim Partners for not being forthcoming with its relationship with Frank McCourt thereby creating a credibility issue, blame Frank McCourt for creating this mess in the first place, and on and on.

    But so what? I really don’t like the blame game and I am guessing each player, coach and all on field and off field management personnel are asking the same questions. I am guessing they too find all of this unacceptable but unlike all of us, they cannot just come out and say so. I suspect changes will be made after the season and we will just have to wait and see.

    One thing should remain constant, and that is the support of the fans. I hope Dodger fans do not abandon the team just because the team is not doing well. Voice your opinion, send letters and emails but remember true fans stick with the team no matter what. Yes, I agree this is difficult to watch and I am not saying you have to watch. While it makes no real sense I believe the fans do deserve better, and certainly Vinny deserves better. But perhaps there is something to the saying you have to hit the bottom before you can climb back up so let’s hope the Dodgers have reached the bottom.

    • 32and53fan says:

      The voice of reason. Well said Ibirken.

      Mattingly sounded as frustrated as we are, saying they just have to play better. But how? Despite the fact that most of these guys are set for life financially, I don’t think they want to suck on the field.

      Maybe Donnie needs to shake things up by ordering the hitters to shorten their swing on a 2 ball count and try for bloopers rather than extra base hits until they get back on track. Maybe McClure needs to rethink batting practice. It is not too hard to hit a straight ball over the middle of the plate, waist high, going 59mph. Why not move the BP pitcher in 20 feet and have him throw low and away and up and in? Have them practice aiming 6 inches below the ball on some swings to compensate for where the ball will actually be on a 2 strike count, low and away.

      I hope we are at rock bottom now and things, including luck, will start to improve. I don’t idolize players anymore. Those feelings were strongest for me at ages 10 – 13 during the Koufax and Drysdale years and faded after the Garvey, Lopes, Russell and Cey days when I became older than the players. Still, I admire and sometimes marvel at the ability of guys at the MLB level. I am a Dodger fan through thick and thin, but it is so much more fun when things are thick. 🙂

  11. Birk, you make great points. Well said! The one that really got to me was that “Vinny deserves better”. He’s been through the thick and thin with this team, and we all know he will make that decision to retire, if not at the end of this year, then fairly soon. It’d be awesome for him to go out having announced at least a winning season for the Dodgers. The effort he puts in day in and day out is amazing – just wish the team could step it up a bit and maybe win for him, if not themselves and their professional pride.

  12. crash24now says:

    Quentin is in today’s lineup against Greinke. At least, that makes today’s game interesting.

  13. Hi
    I’ll follow the audio of tonight’s game as the TV version is blackedout at this time in my area and the game is not on FOX here..

  14. crash24now says:

    Volquez has a no-hitter going. Let’s do something about that.

  15. crash24now says:

    Schumaker chases one home with a ground out and a questionable call at first to avoid the double play.

  16. crash24now says:

    Volquez loses the shutout but still has the no-hitter.

  17. Another Dodger way to score a run. Still no hits.

  18. crash24now says:

    How about some freaking offense, boys?

    0-3 with RISP.

  19. trublu4ever says:


  20. crash24now says:

    That’s what I’m talking about!!!! Way to go, A-Gone!

  21. Good to (hear) AGON HR.

  22. trublu4ever says:

    Yes…I’ll take it!

  23. crash24now says:

    Finally we take advantage of someone else’s ineptitude in the field.

    But, 0-5 with RISP.

  24. Thank you we’ll take them two runs.

  25. crash24now says:

    Nice hit by Schumaker!

    1-6 with RISP. Finally.

  26. SHU gets the first hit with RISP.

  27. crash24now says:

    1-7 with RISP. We’re just lucky that the Padres are handing this game to us via walks and poor defense.

  28. That was a long inning I hope Greinke isn’t effected by it. I believe with RISP we’re 1-7.

  29. trublu4ever says:


  30. That’s Hanley’s 3rd.

  31. The Dodgers are better off hitting homeruns.

  32. Still got a 5 run lead.

  33. I hope Greinke finishes the inning.

  34. Mark Ellis gets a hit with RISP.

  35. trublu4ever says:

    Yes…a solid win!

  36. It was good to (hear) Greinke had a fantastic outing.

  37. Was able to watch the last 6 innings of the game. Although the Padres did a good job at handing us some runs, some of the guys stepped up. That was one AWESOME blast by Hanley and glad to see AGon’s HR, too. If Mattingly would leave this lineup alone tomorrow, maybe we could get the same results . . . a win. Ah, I love to dream 🙂

  38. crash24now says:

    Nice win, but it doesn’t change the facts:

    14th of 15 in the NL in runs.
    13th in home runs.
    15th in youth of batters (age 30.7 compared to NL 28.6)
    4th in GIDPs
    14th in WHIP
    15th in Fielding percentage

    • JhallWally says:


      Those numbers don’t bode well for a successive season…
      Kind of like we are seeing right now…

      Fire Nedcompoop……

  39. 32and53fan says:

    Nice to see some of the multi-million dollars per year players come through. Just like Guggenheim planned.

  40. grizzy says:

    Good win. It would be a great thing if they could keep this going. Sorry, but by now I have my doubts, but let’s hope for the best.

  41. koufax1963 says:

    Yesterday’s game, was a nice thing to see, yes we were given some runs, but a stand out performance by grienke, and shumacher did really well, and that was a monster HR by Hanley, even uribe taking a walk shows some discipline, but….. you know I have to say it, using jansen in a non save situation to close out the game is silly, he can get his work in today with capauano pitching on short rest, why not let someone who needs to improve their performance come in with a 5 run lead: beli, gurrier would have been better choices. and with the tenacious gnats coming we need everyone ready, not spent.

    • trublu4ever says:

      I think Donnie finally realizes he can’t trust the bullpen…no matter how large the lead. Sad, but, true.

      • trublu4ever says:

        I also think, Honeycutt was the one who said Kenley need the work…..had been a while (Pittsburgh) since he threw.

      • JhallWally says:

        Ned built the bullpen… You gotta fire Ned before Dildon……..

        • trublu4ever says:

          I’d love that!

          • JhallWally says:

            🙂 It’s common sense… The man is a baffoon…..
            Fire Ned now, and sell at the trade deadline (kind of describes our current lineup)…

            That is if you can unload any of this crap…

          • JhallWally says:

            I would not be to willing to unload Ethier and eat half or more of his salary just yet.. Crawford is too injury prone…. I don’t expect much from him going forward… Unload him(Crawford) if you can….

          • trublu4ever says:

            I agree with you on Dre & Carl….not because I like Andre but, as you say, CC is injury prone. Not only that, but, we don’t know how good Matt will be when he returns.

          • JhallWally says:

            Yep Tru, Matt is a huge question mark… I don’t think Ethier is all that great, but, at least he is on the field and ready to go every day… I do think he gives a sh*t…..

          • JhallWally says:

            I would bat Ethier in the 2 hole ahead of AGon…. He has always done well in the 2 hole… I believe part of Ethiers problems are our managements inabililty to use his talents correctly….

    • JhallWally says:

      It is time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      And past time to fire Ned……….. He is not the GM you want engineering the Dodgers future…………

  42. crash24now says:

    The return of the anemic offense.

  43. crash24now says:

    Hey Donnie! Why the hell do you let Capuano bat for himself in the top of the sixth, just to bring in Moylan to pitch the bottom of the sixth?

    Hey Stan! When the hell are you going to let Donnie go. TIme to shit-can him. Make sure you throw out Ned and Conte while you are taking out the trash.

  44. crash24now says:

    Uribe gets the job done with his second double today!

    1-6 with RISP.

  45. crash24now says:

    1-7 with RISP.

    Moylan gives it up to Quentin. We need more runs from our anemic offense.

  46. trublu4ever says:


  47. crash24now says:

    A-Gone and Han-Ram both tee-off! Yes!

  48. trublu4ever says:


    • JhallWally says:

      Woo-Hoo, win streak….. Well, at least we split the series….

      Kudos to Cap and the bullpen…. Thank you AGon and Hanley..

      Now, lets kick some Giant ass……..

    • JhallWally says:

      And I guess, Uribe deserves some accolades…. Geez, it is amazing how much better players get in their walk years. Playing for another contract…

      • JhallWally says:

        I liked it better when contracts were year to year… This system is not working…

        Or do it like the NFL, you don’t perform, you get cut with no money….

      • trublu4ever says:

        Matt and Scott VanSlyke are supposed to come back next week….I’m thinking Cruz and Elian will be gone….how about you?

        • JhallWally says:

          I hope so…. I sure would like to see us at least make a little noise in the division.. If nothing else, at least spoil it for the Gnats….

  49. crash24now says:

    Jansen nails it down. We win!

  50. ZonaDodger says:

    Nice win today….Moylan sucks…DFA

  51. crash24now says:

    Arizona loses and we’re 8.5 games out. Big series coming up with the Giants.

  52. Hi Everybody
    Spent yesterday at the Staten Island Yankees vs Aberdeen Ironbirds game in SI. Won’t miss tonight’s though.
