Nothing to see here. Please disperse!

Loney Fan said...

I think I am the only one cheering that Loney was not forced to suffer through camouflage uniforms and piss poor attendance. He deserves better than that.

"Who's gang is this?"

"It's not a gang, baby it's a baseball team"

"Who's baseball team is this?"

"It Ned's"

"Who is Ned?"

"Ned is dead baby...Ned is dead."

Really? Nuttin'?

Maybe they'll hand out souvenir Dodger Blue baseballs at the next homestand to commemorate the day.

Dusto Magnifico said...

ugh... i keep refreshing MLBTR crossing my fingers for either, a Juan Pierre dump, or a Adrian Gonzales trade. And if at all possible... a swap for the two.

Dusty Baker said...

Maybe they'll bring out The Gimp.

It's almost as if you're a fan of the man.

Paul said...

I think the Gimp is sleeping in San Diego. Was that Gonzo's nickname?

Hong Like a Chih Kuo said...

I'd take Gonzo over Loney 10 times out of 10. That's my opinion.

Dusto Magnifico said...

( I hear "Gonzo" and think of Luis Gonzalez. Gut reaction is just that... blargghhh... wha... wha... wuff.... Adrian Gonzo on the other hand, yeah, thats a player I want the Dojers to get. Loney will hold down the fort until we can get an upgrade.)

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Pierre for A-Gon? Why didn't anyone think of that before?! That would have clinched it! San Diego probably would have thrown in prospects too! And we could have traded Schmidt for Halladay! It all could have worked out perfectly!

Glad our young core stayed together. I would have been really excited to have Halladay on our team, but not for Clayton or Bills.

Dusty Baker said...

Heyman just reported/twittered that the LA-SD deal was AGon & Bell for Loney, Martin, McDonald, DeWitt, and DeJesus.

Orel said...

That would have been a whopper.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't think I would have done Martin, but other than that it looked good.

Josh S. said...

Well, thank god Ned didn't pull the trigger. I don't think even those two guys were worth all THAT.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Maybe it meant Ethan Martin. That would be different.

Dusty Baker said...

Tom Martin?

Dusty Baker said...

It would have been an upgrade. A talent upgrade, but not an emotional upgrade is the way I just described it to Mrs. Baker who was getting a little weepy about the possibility of losing JMart.

Dusto Magnifico said...

had to have been ETHAN MARTIN. not j-russ.

Dusty Baker said...

could have explained why we snagged another catcher when we already had two on the roster. then sent the one we traded for to AA (league not the organization). there were other ways to make room for sherrill.

just a theory is all.

Nic j said...

Manny is starting to worry me a bit.

Dusty Baker said...

Yeah, something is with Manny. Hopefully it's a batting slump and not a mental one related to his season, the PED stuff, the latest leak, etc. Don't need a moody, brooding key player or we'd have kept Kent.

Chad'sKindaRad said...

no, it was Russell Martin
