I can think of one word for our current state:
Frank should fire Ned immediately for his latest trade debacle. He should have been gone after the Andruw Jones and Juan Pierre signings. With the fans on a boycott and not a whole lot to get excited about this season, bringing in TRob to play LF would have been a positive diversion and at least some reason for optimism going forward in these dark ownership and GM times.
Ned Colletti has done as much to destroy the Dodgers on the field as Frank has to destroy them off the field. Even with the McCourts raping the team for their own personal interests, the team could have remained respectable and competitive on the field if we had a good/real GM and not a castoff G’aint and Cub PR guy.
Unfortunately, it looks like it is going to take a long time to fix the ownership and financial problems now that it is in our court system. However, a good first step in starting the resurrection of the Dodger franchise is immediately available.
FIRE NED COLLETTI!!!!
This Day in Dodgers History
On August 7,2003 – Fireballer Eric Gagne ties the single-season record for consecutive saves to start a season established in 1995 by Jose Mesa of the Indians. The Dodger closer strikes out the Reds’ side in the ninth inning for his 38th save this season and 46th consecutive regular-season save overall.
