    Martin needs to get rid of the J.Martin on the back of his jersey. I know its a tribute to his mom but ever since he's gone that route he's stunk.

    Additionally, I cant believe we started a glorified #5 guy as our opening day starter. I wouldnt be surprised if by June, hes out of the rotation and Ortiz is in. Ortiz had a pretty good spring and looked good today. Plus he's a former 20 game winner...Padilla has shooting himself in the leg to his name.

    wow, I was at the gym when I heard the score. Not a big surprise. I suppose it is early for pitchers. I can't believe I didn't even know it was opening day. First one I missed watching in over ten years.

    The 2010 Dodgers:


    The offense will be better-than-average to pretty good.

    The defense will be OK.

    The starting pitching will not be good. At all.

    Middle relief will be OK/good, despite the workload that the starting staff is going to put on them.

    Broxton will still be terrified when on the mound in close or meaningful games.

    Martin has to get over the whole J. thing. We get it, your mom needs her props like your dad got. Enough family issues already, focus on baseball for the next 6 months!

    The owners divorce will be an issue for the team that well may carry over to 2011 and have impact beyond.

    Scully* will go on endless "the deuces are wild" and bizarre stat rants yet again all season.


    Final result in '10:

    They will compete for the wild card but miss out by a few games in the last week or so of the season.

    I hope I'm completely wrong and the Dodgers win the NL West again!

    Go Dogs Go!




    * - I've said it before and I'll say it again. I get it and I LOVE the past Vin, but dude is 81 (IIRC) years old now and has fallen into some weird/odd habits the last few seasons that are really annoying.

    On the bright side, LA's next three starters will be better than the guy who pitched on opening day.

    Are you not familiar with the Dodger's starting pitching? If you are, are you impressed? If you are, you are in the minority.

    In an off-season where the Dogs should have been pursuing top-notch starting pitching with max effort, the focus was instead on the divorce, to hell with the team.



    Or was it my Broxton comment?

    Have you not seen his act the last two seasons? When it comes down to it and he HAS to strike out a hitter, here comes a 95mph fastball... straight down the pipe, almost every time.

    How many times did he enter the game with a solid lead and give up runs to make the game close or blow the lead? Too many.

    There may well be some youtube vids of his "performances" against Philly in the last two playoffs, (I'm not going to bother looking them up, too painful) where he clearly gave in to their hitters.

    In 2008 I was Anti-Broxton and the posters here told me to chill and let him learn. He melted down several times in the season and then collapsed against Philly.

    In 2009 I tried to be pro-Broxton. He yet again melted down several times in the season and then completely imploded against Philly.

    In 2010 I'm just going to laugh at him when he comes into the game. This is the season where I expect him to actually cry on the mound.



    Seriously, really really look at his face when he pitches.

    You never see a "LOL, here.. try to hit this..." expression.

    Instead you will see a "Ugh... I hope he does not crush this pitch" expression.

    Broxton is like Charlie Brown:

    A high straight ball
    A low straight ball


    He's gonna get ripped again against the real hitters in the NL.

    It's definitely not the best staff in the NL. But it's not awful either. Awful pitching staffs don't lead MLB in ERA. Tone down the hyperbole.

    Not many, actually. He was 36 for 42 in save opportunities last year with a 2.61 ERA and WHIP under 1. If he gives us that again this year, I'll take it without question.

    His playoff performances were abysmal, absolutely. However, EVERY closer (Lidge, Fuentes, Nathan, Papelbon, Franklin, and Street) in the playoffs not named Mariano Rivera melted down in a huge playoff game last year.

    He's not Gagne, he's not Saito, and he's never going to be. But he was still one of the best closers in the game last year. It could be a lot worse.
