Men overboard: Looking at the Dodgers’ struggles with runners on


And, we’re back …

    Are they likely to play or is it set in?

      I’m thinking at least a 2100est start time or later if they play it

    So I was in Ventura yesterday and today doing my civic duty, Jury Duty. Was on a panel for both days as they tried to winnow it down to 12. I was finally excused this afternooon. The part that will interest Dodger Thoughts is that excused right before me was Sciosia’s wife. Caused a small stir yesterday as she read through the stuff they want you to recite, and when it came to occupation of spouse, calmly said “manager of the Angels.” For the record, she was bounced by the defense, while I was bounced by the prosecution. Usually I am bounced by the defense, so perhaps I am mellowing in my old age.

    Maybe Mrs. Scioscia was excused because it was a case of hit-and-run.

      The judge asked her when we could get Mike to come back to manage the Dodgers. I kept my mouth shut that if they continue to play like they are, he may be looking soon.

        Did the judge really ask her that? I love it. Unfortunately, Mr. Scioscia could be looking for a job within a couple of months if the Angels don’t jell.

    Puig at Double-A Chattanooga this year in 13 games: .333/.385/.625/1.010 in 48 at bats. Also, 3 HR, 9 RBI.
    Gordon at Triple-A Albuquerque this year in 11 games: .319/.385/.468/.853 in 52 at bats. Also, 8 SB in 9 attempts, but 3 errors in 65 chances.

      That’s a .954 fielding average. Is that bad for a shortstop?

        Ozzie Smith had a lifetime of .978. Applied to 65 chances he would have made 1.5 errors, or half as many. (I am not sure what this means, but it was fun).

          Eyeballing Offerman’s numbers he might have average around .954 in his years at SS for the Dodgers. So, yes, that is pretty bad.

  5. Tonight’s game has been postponed. We’ll play two tomorrow: 10am and 4pm PT.
