So I know the Dodgers are trying to upgrade the team as they head into the final months of the season. Trust me, I get it better than most. The Dodgers are clearly going for it, as they should, but I am a bit frustrated with a couple of the recent transactions. DFA victim one, Bobby Abreu? Really? Ned? Really? Who do I want coming off the bench with runners in scoring position? Oh I know! Pick me! Answer is…anyone not named Juan Uribe, tha’t's for sure. Then today the Dodgers designate Tony Gwynn Jr., for assignment. Ridiculous. He may not be the superstar his father once was, heck, his dad is a freaking legend. I’m thinking didn’t  junior didn’t get a healthy dosage of that gene, just sayin’. Regardless, he’s still a decent baseball player, and could probably be an upgrade for a few teams out there. He will no doubt generate some trade interest. Gwynn has got great defense, great range, great speed, and hits pretty good. No pop, but that is okay with me. Uribe? He’s got defense, for now. Range? Yeah, not too bad. Speed? Ummmmmm, that’s a big fat no. Hits pretty good? My seven-year-old-daughter hits better than Uribe. It’s true, it really is. I’d rather have Dontrelle Willis pinch hit for the Dodgers over Uribe. That’s true also. Ridiculous, but true. Jerry Sands gets the callup for Gwynn, okay, I can swallow that. Sands has more potential, he can play first base, and wait there’s more, he can hit against left-handers. Really, really, good too! So I’m all for that. They may be showcasing Sands, that’s where my money is at least. I have that gut feeling the Dodgers got something in the cauldron brewing, but I can’t really pinpoint the five w’s yet. So for no reason at all, Juan Uribe survives another day. Even though he is clearly not part of the winning solution. It makes me nauseous to thing Uribe could get another World Series ring. I think I just threw up in my mouth.  Speaking of winning solution, what’s Adam Kennedy still doing here? Throw him in the pot as well. He should have been sent packing in April. Where is Elian Herrera? At least that kid plays with heart and has actual talent. Sheesh! Speaking of no talent, how come James Loney is still here? Oh that’s right, he’s gonna hit 15 homers between now and the end of the season. Forgive me. I forgot. Related Posts:
