Trayvon Robinson Interview


I did a very quick interview with Trayvon, mostly about non-baseball stuff but there are some interesting nuggets in there. Enjoy.

"OMG, that was behind the BLACK!"


Did anyone else catch this slip-up by the announcer? http://colorado.rockies.mlb.com/video/play.jsp?content_id=11128997&topic_id=8878968&c_id=col Hmm, the direct link doesn't seem to show up as a link fanshot. Click the title to go to the vid.

Phil Rogers in the Chicago Tribune: "What was Ken Williams thinking when he traded John Ely (and Jon Link) to get Juan Pierre?"

It seems to me that Pierre was what the White Sox could afford once the Dodgers agreed to pay $10.5 million of the $18.5 million left on the horrific five-year deal he received after his one unproductive season with the Cubs. But Williams would have been so much better off to just say no and figure out how to fill the leadoff spot elsewhere, even if he had to cross his fingers on Jordan Danks, who is hitting .250 with a .331 on-base percentage for Triple-A Charlotte. He definitely should have gotten off the telephone when Dodgers GM Ned Colletti mentioned Ely. Arguably the best pitcher in the Southern League a year ago, Ely is a Homewood-Flossmoor High School product who grew up rooting for the White Sox. He's an easy guy to underestimate because he doesn't light up the radar gun, but he is in the process of seizing an unexpected opportunity with the Dodgers.

Which Taco to Eat Pre-Game


Last year, we asked you to eat birria to stoke the curse of the Billy Goat. This year, get a pollo or turkey taco, douse it with some red salsa and imagine you’re chowing down on grilled cardinal. Hey, it worked last time!

A Night At The Dugout Club


I wrote this article a couple years ago for the L.A. Weekly. They chose not to publish it because someone wrote an article ripping George W Bush. I recently posted it online. I hope you enjoy it.


Juan Pierre: Resurrection! But Torre pulls Belisario!

Dodgers sudden underdogs, suddenly interesting!      

Kuroda Could Be Out Awhile; Other Injury Notes


Hiroki Kuroda is still feeling discomfort in his left side after suffering an oblique strain. These types of injuries can be recurring so Kuroda will take it slow and try to be 100 percent before coming back, which is good. But the longer Kuroda is out, the more likely it is he will need a minor league rehab assignment. Accoriding to Torre, his return is "More likely weeks away than days away". That means we'll be seeing at least a few more Eric Stults starts. Jason Schmidt threw a five inning, 73 pitch game in extended spring training. He is expected to pitch at least one more game in extended spring training before starting a minor league rehab assignment. Infielder Tony Abreu (Remember him?) is walking without crutches for the first time siince suffering an ankle sprain two weeks ago. He will probably still be out at least another month.
