Yeah I knew when we got him last year it was gonna be boom or bust for him. I knew that a lot of times a change of scenery for guys like that help a ton....or he could continue being a piece of ****....luckily he changed a little bit. Hopefully he buys into Donny B and Big Mac's approach this year.

Are the Dodgers going to be a major dissapointment this year?

As long as Kemp stays healthy, they should be rolling.

Greinke's elbow issue better be nothing serious. I'm bummed because I was planning to go to the second game of the season against SF to see Greinke pitch, but it looks like he'll be a scratch.

Jackie Bradley Jr. should stay in the Major Leagues the entire year. Screw the whole MLB service thing. I think by the year 2018 you will have room to sign him long term.

I am torn on this... I don't want him to come up when is not ready and stunt his growth but the kid has been raking all spring.

I say just cut douchebag Gomes and keep Bradley up.

They won't cut Gomes when he's owed $10 million for the next 2 years. Bardley will be the starting CF next year when Ellsbury walks.

I know. I just hate Gomes with a fiery passion. He is one of two athletes I would go out of my way to punch in the face if I saw them walking down the street.

This is actually what started the hate. I can't imagine what Coco would think of the signing if he was still on the team.

So, why the hell isn't Aroldis Chapman starting? That would've been so much fun. I don't care if he wants to be a closer, **** that.

I don't think the kid knows how to pitch yet. He would burn his arm out pretty quickly as a starter.

Plus he is so shutdown @ the back of that bullpen.

I may be wrong as baseball is not a sport I know that much about, but I think you need to take the shot at making him a starter. Aren't closers relatively unimportant and ridiculously overrated anyway?

You know more than you realize.

As for Chapman I'd have at least given him 1 full year of starting just to see what happens. The problem is that he throws and doesn't pitch though.

I guess I am part of the select few who believe having a Closer that is 1-2-3 is a huge advantage.

Its helpful but if you have a shot at a great starter or a dominant closer which are you going to chose?

Starter.


But with someone like Chapman - it is obvious he is still learning how to pitch. Not the right time.

Not if said closer is capable of giving you 200 innings of great pitching. Whether or not Chapman is capable of that has yet to be seen, but a good SP is more of an advantage than a great closer.

The problem is that he's not going to do much 'learning' as long as he stayed in the closer role. Eventually, there has to be some trial by fire where you just throw him out there. Ideally, that would have been last year, in the minors.
