    Dave should stick Pedro in as closer. That would be great. Either that or call up some hard thrower like Alvarez.
    This could be Baez last real shot at sticking in the MLB. If he can save a few games in a row it might give him enough fire in his belly to have the confidence going forward that will enable him to match his results with his skills.
    Of course, the likelihood of him falling on his ass is just as likely.
    Which would hopefully turn into his ultimate dismissal?
    Pedro needs to sink or swim as a closer because as a reliever he is treading water while slowly drawing in a teacup of dodger fan tears.

    Yeah, great.
    So the Dodger season can quite possibly completely tank while Pedro "finds his inner fire".

    No, it’s infinitely more likely

    Petey is what Dave calls Baez. I was just joking

    I wouldn't mind if "Petey" had shown some kind of effectiveness, on some kind of regular basis ( or irregular, even), like say, Hudson. But his + performances are so rare now, get ready for big heartache from this guy when it means the most.
    It's not like playing Logan, where there is 8 other guys around him to lessen his shittiness...he's out there alone, and a guy like Ianetta can easitorpedo a season in a NY minute.
    Lol. I knew who you meant...it just seems so absurd and ridiculous, I took the comedy opportunity, too.

    They’re saying Kenley is out a month? Geezus, we can’t catch a break.

    Just a month ago half of the people here kept saying that we needed a new closer because Kenley was a choker with no heart.
    Turns out his heart is the issue after all, just not metaphorically.
    If Kenley has been so bad for us the past year or so and has choked away so many big games... whats the big loss?

    Which I really would not mind seeing.
    It might be worth losing a couple of regular season games so we can finally get Baez out of the roster.

    Exactly. It might be that he needs to hit a few guys in the back and have the guy get pissed and the Silver Fox come out cleats first to defend Petey's honor.

    Manny Magranderson came pretty damn close to having 1,000 career hits at the age of 25, a month shy
    Manny Ramirez had about half the number of hits at age 26
