Dodger beat writer Leung laid off | Dodger Thoughts | Los Angeles Times
That ****in' blows. I liked Diamond way better than Tony Jackson.
I can't wait for the regular season, I dont watch that spring training till late so I can see who makes the cut, I am glad they got O-Dog (Orlando Hudson) from the stories Vinny tells O-Dog sounds like a nice guy.
ITS TIME FOOOR DODGER BASEBALL
First cuts announced - Inside the DodgersThey weren't surprising. Pitchers Greg Miller and Justin Orenduff were optioned to minor-league camp. Pitchers Jacobo Meque, Yhency Brazoban and Ronald Belisario were reassigned to minor-league camp.
Justin Orenduff DFA'd, Manny added to roster - Inside the DodgersOrenduff didn't pitch well at Vegas last year, going 3-7 with a 6.55 ERA in 21 starts and 10 relief appearances. He made one Cactus League appearance this spring, facing six batters, recording two outs, walking two and giving up two doubles on Feb. 27 against Seattle. He has a good chance of clearing waivers and remaining in the organization.
Dodgers don't sign Mark Sweeney, but they do hire him - Inside the DodgersHe's going to be an ``assistant coach,'' whatever that is. He is also going to be a ``liaison between the Dodgers' advance scout and the club,'' whatever that is. Basically, it sounds like he was just such a good guy that they made up a job for him
Retirement was a good idea. He was terrible last season.
Kuo, Wade close to returning - Inside the DodgersHong-Chih Kuo said he will pitch in a B game tomorrow, his first game action of the spring. Cory Wade will pitch live batting practice today and go from there, but he said the tentative plan is for to make his Cactus League debut on Friday or Saturday. So other than Ivan DeJesus, it looks like the Dodgers are close to being at full strength, No other news so far this morning.
To B or not to B, that is the question - Inside the DodgersI have no idea what that headline means, it just sounded like a cool play on words. Hong-Chih Kuo pitched one inning in a B game against the White Sox this morning, his first actual game appearance of the spring, and did really well.
