Chaos in the Outfield

Seriously, what’s it going to take for the Dodgers to see that this outfield by committee approach is not working? I totally get that competition breeds success, but in this case, the opposite is happening.

Here’s my solution:
1.) START KEMP!
2.) Bench Jones for 2-3 games for some serious work on his swing.
3.) Get Jones some help with his blase attitude.
4.) Start Pierre for Jones (for now).
5.) Let the fans know what the plan is!
5.) Get Jones back into the lineup on a permanent basis with Kemp and Ethier and use Pierre as a spot starter and a pinch-hit specialist.

I really think the problem is that the fans (and players) don’t really know what’s going on, so every day that goes by with another questionable roster move makes fans feel even more like pulling their hair out.

Andruw Jones May Get Dodger Dogs for Life

[SATIRE ALERT]

The Dodger DogSerious Sports Networkis reporting that there is a rumor circulating that Andruw Jones asked for a lifetime supply of Dodger Dogs as part of his contract with the baseball franchise.

In response to questions from reporters, Scott Boras – who represents Jones – said “…Certainly Andruw loves Dodger dogs – and will receive a generous amount gratis – but he won’t receive them free for life…that’s just ridiculous.”

New Dodger manager Joe Torre also weighed in on the rumor when asked to comment by reporters.  Said Torre, “The guy’s an All Star, and all you people want to talk about his love of a delicious, ten-inch, spicy grilled hot dog that’s topped with mouth watering picante sauce.  Let it go”

Rest assured that we will be reviewing the Jones contract details to see if any hot dogs are mentioned.
