    Not yet for the Rockies (could have been the Dodgers :silent: ) and the Red Sox!! But for everyone else the bulls##t starts. All sorts or of rumour and innuendo will happen, and don't be surprised if Hilary Clinton is nominated as a possible manager if she fails in the election primaries!!

    I would suggest that Torre as Dodger manager would be very long odds....why would he want to head west?? Why should the Dodgers be looking for a new manager?? I would say that to keep the ship a little steady (pun intended) they should keep Little. He cannot be the scapegoat for the crap season which promised so much at the AS break. Keep him on, give him a workable roster, and let him prove himself.....if he can't then dump him, but don't make the position a revolving door!

      Any truth to the rumor that Joe Torre is being sought to become LAD's next manager if the McCourts buy out Grady Little's contract?

        Judging by the way the front office has behaved this last week, I'd say there are some truth to the rumors...

          Of those eligible for arbitration, I for one am hoping that Hendrickson will lose his case, become unhappy with the Dodgers' offer, and move on!


          Dear Mr. Bedard,
          Please come to LA and join the Dodgers. The weather is wonderful, the coaching staff is unmatched, and no, we don't have Boog's BBQ, but we do have Dodger Dogs.



          Anyone have a link of where to find what players eligible for arbitration are being offered? Is this info made public before the case is heard?

                    Thanks JS! what more can you tell us about John-Ford Griffin? I visited your stadium last year. I caught the Red Sox there while I was at a conference in Toronto for a few days. I hope to get to see one or two stadiums this year. G.W. -Emma

                            Sadly, yes. R.I.P. Dodgertown.

                              I think the Dodgers WIN this year's free agent frenzy. They more than filled their needs without signing FannyRam. The defense, speed, and arms improved. In addition, this year, they will be healthy so watch out for this team. The key is 3B.
                              In the 1920's, Harry Heilmann led the AL with a .364 average. In addition, he averaged 220 hits, 45 doubles, 12 triples, 16 homers, 110 runs, and 130 RBI.
