Just one more.... for us foolish, yet forever loyal Dodger fans.... a team that for just once in a lifetime lives up to it's spring time potential.


How about some keys to the castle for me?

How about for the FANS. Please no more heckling idiots in stands. Come to watch the game and not yell," Insert NAME" SUCKS. Its old and overdone. Find new material. Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

for Tommy Lasorda: a padded casket

more like a bionic arm for Kuo.

To Furcal, good health! He's the heart and soul of the team.

Frank: Just go away. Just go.

One more to add to your list -

Dodger Fans: New team ownership.

Boos for either of the McCourts, every time he or she shows their face at Dodger Stadium or at spring training. Chants of "Sell, sell, sell" if he's at at game. My mantra.
Speaking of Mannion, why not let us in on the other defections and firings in the front office?

Good to have you back S'58

It's good to be back, alan19. Being a "child of the 60's," I hope to instigate a grass roots protest at this blog that will eventually reach McCourt's ears. I will not be attending any Dodger games this season, but I am hoping that some of you out there will join in booing this charlatan to let him know he has NO fan base here. How long can this foul human be in denial when he hears boos and chants of "Sell, sell, sell" from the Dodger faithful, people he doesn't deserve? I'll be beating this nearly dead horse all season until it really expires.

If he sells, they will come.

a boomer myself S'58 -

I'll take a saddle for one - with you all the way

he's just gotta go
