    Your right. My bad. I knew they were teammates.

    I agree with you. Dunning has great pitching IQ. He's a competitor. And maybe most importantly an easy repeatable delivery. Speaking of him being a competitor, look up the video of him yelling at the umps for calling the tarp out with the rain coming. He was at Florida. Love it! He is better than Lambert, Lopez, Rodon. I expect him to be #5 next season and then 4 the following year with Dallas the 5. I'm still not sure what the plan is for Rodon. I feel he will be moved next offseason. I just don't see how he's going to be happy here if he's not starting.

    I really do appreciate your play by play Wallace. Can't get anything out here at the steel mill. And good to see Burdi throw out of the pen like that! Geez, we get him back - can you imagine the options we will have for the bullpen?

    Y2Jimmy > National Reports (Moncada extended 5 years)

    Yes I agree. When Grandal came up as a rookie with the Padres, Ricky was a coach there. He made a good impression with him. Helped his decision to come here. ( the $73 million helped too)

    You know I still wonder if James and not Steve Cishek have the same source? But classy move by NSC gives the props to James.
  7. That's a good point. Never thought that. And really by now you should realize NOT SC does have something going on. He's definitely got an insider or source.

    I wonder what this contract is going to look like? Happy though. Get it done!

    Me too. Didn't he also say we were going to extend one of our relievers? I could be wrong.

    FS: Dane Dunning throwing without issue

    Maybe my favorite pitching prospect not named Kopech. Dunning throwing with no issues is great news!

    MLB cheating scandal

    This past week the Astros had a perfect opportunity to go before the world (not just their fan base) and show some humility and apologize. They think that's what happened. I think otherwise. There was no sincerity at all in their apologies. There was no remorse coming from any of the handful that were the ringleaders there in Houston. These guys read a script-- thats all. They were coached. Some might say the only thing that They're sorry about is that they got caught. I'm not sure that's even accurate. It sounds like They're more mad they got caught then sorry. The closest thing we have to a sincere apology is from Beltran and a few of the players who are no longer with the Astros organization. No sadly, I really don't think that these players feel that they did anything wrong. It was a culture that was set up by the coaches and staff and players. And when implemented it was under an oblivious owner who still feels it had no impact on the game. So with all that being said, I'm sorry (no pun intended) Justin Verlander if you and your teammates are ready to move on and put this behind you -- because We the fans are not ready to move on. We never got a sincere "I'm sorry ". We deserve more. Each mlb club deserves more. The Dodgers deserve more. What you guys did was a disgrace to the game. Honestly when you're on the road I hope every fan base lets you hear it. I hope the media keeps asking questions about the cheating all season long. In fact, I can't wait for the Astros to come to GRF. Hopefully this year in the playoffs. (Only a 3 game set at Houston in June). I hope the Astros get agitated and impatient with what they hear and the questions that are asked. This is the bed they have made now they have to sleep in it.

    Yes, you're right. My bad. Probably for the best with things as heated as they are this season. The best we could hope for is a rematch in the world series. Now that would be interesting! I do think the Dodgers will be representing national league.

    Cashman did the same thing with Crane without mentioning Crane's name.
