I was born in the shadow of Dodger Stadium and immediately drenched in Dodger Blue. Chavez Ravine is my baseball cathedral, Vin Scully was the golden voice of summer all my life, and Tommy Lasorda remains the greatest Dodgers manager ever. My favorite things are coffee, beer, and the Dodgers beating the Giants. I also blog about my baseball card hobby at All Trade Bait, All the Time.

  1. This is not a team made up of lemons. Yet we keep coming up with lemonade. We are all hoping the outcome is better next year. And I do believe he may be a man who can do it.

  2. The Athletic has a great piece on the possible banning of the shift. Some brief excerpts:

    OK, here’s why: A number of people inside the game, including some members of the competition committee, have concluded that teams and hitters have reacted to The Shift by saying, “Let’s hit the ball over those shifts.” … They’ve also concluded that those uppercut swings are fueling the tsunami of strikeouts….Yet the cool factor of the opposite-field single hasn’t spread across the land – and shows no signs of doing so.

    What a new rule might look like
    It’s difficult to spell out the specifics of a rule that has never existed and has barely been talked about… But what’s most likely is a rule that simply reinforces one basic principle: Each team must have two infielders on the left side of second base and two on the right side.
