Los Angeles Dodgers

I am shocked with the lineups they have been trotting out there. They can't be serious. Can't argue with the two squeak victories but I am glad I'm not giving my money to the McCourts. How sad would you be going to the ball park and seeing only 3 major league average bats in the line up.

So true. Glad to be in Vegas so going to games isn't even an option.

Getting new owners is the best thing that could happen to the Dodgers right now.

The sad thing is that it's totally possible the Dodgers win close to 90 games in this fashion.

A vendor at work offered my his tix for some events: Dodgers, Angels, the LA Phil - I took the LA Phil.

Years ago I would never even considerd anything over a Dodger game - especially the symphony.

Just no where near as interested as in past years. And bringing in an ex-Yankee to be the new manager certainly won't help my outlook either...

It's true. I just can't wait for the annual Dodgers collapse after the all-star break.

Probably, but this feels like the year where McCourt goes all in on players who are "good," so good in fact, that the team trading them has to eat nearly all the money on the contract to move them our way. If those aren't blockbuster trades then I wouldn't know what else to call them.

We'll see. I certainly don't follow them as closely as I used to.

Does anyone know why they are already not showing the game on extra innings? How can they not show this rivalry?

They don't show big network FOX games on Extra Innings anymore if you're out of the area. Instead they make you watch the one they chose.

Are you kidding me? So I just dropped 200 bucks to see the Dodgers and I can't?

Jamie McCourt is a vile human being I hate her. Can't say much more about how I feel on the Dodgers owners or I will be banned ASAP. Frank was fine but I don't know why he'd give her such big roles and titles, what a loser he deserves to get played by his wife.

Its the Dodgers, a team that is somewhat unique in not ever really having to spend for top pitching (when they do like Schmidt it doesn't help much) I guess being bare bones in the bullpen and rotation and going Andre Either and 8 scrubs for the lineup means there is nowhere to go but up and winning 90 games can always happen in the West. The Giants won a WS with serious garbage playing big roles.

Not joking. These are the rules, from last season but still relevant.

Yeah its bad. I have enough beefs with Center Ice for not having more games in HD and not giving me complementary Game Center (NBA does and I had to move from my apartment with center ice so its illegal streams for the playoffs for me despite paying and I can't switch it) but Extras is worse if possible.

Basically unless your a Texas fan where they don't play day games even on Saturdays your screwed and not going to get to see your team despite spending the money so you can watch baseball on your day off on a Saturday.

So does this only apply to saturdays? I did a little digging and I don't see anything specific for week nights. I had EI last year and while I didn't watch it more than once or twice a week I don't remember an issue.

Except the 51's never have any real prospects because it is a terrible park to determine progress.

Point being?

I just love the game, and don't have to spend $200 to see a mediocre team. (the Dodgers)

And I can see the good prospects of other teams in the PCL.

I never know who plays for the Dodgers anymore. I swear they lose 3/4 of the team every off season.

I gotcha. I used to love going to see Chin Feng Chen in LV. They have a fun park.
