    Really.
    How many games he won.
    How many holds be got.
    How many times did he suit up.
    Was he there for them in the clutch spitting shells out his shooter?

    It's easy to be a great teammate and say the white things when you have the bag secured and nothing is asked of you other than to take your money and stay on permanent vacation.

    When money is put in your face and you say fuck the money... That's a good teammate. But you won't hear that sound bite.
    Because only a fool spits on his privilege.
    Same one thats too proud to beg.
    Only teammates for a dodgers fan.
    Because dodgers don't get in line for their free complimentary ticket.
    Dodgers fans are fools.
    And I know plenty of fools who want their ravine back because this ain't it.
    No matter if the bankers can afford to bring in multimillion dollar pitchers with broken mechanics to be what... A mascot to say nice things to the media that doesn't do anything to help a clubhouse but may further fuel any brewing divisions?

    Sorry blazer. I would love to go to a game with you some day but fuck these rich assholes. They ain't getting a dime from me.
    It will be a cold day in hell before I step foot in Dodgers stadium.
    All the god forsaken parking lots will be razed to the ground before I give them a penny.

    Good teammates don't
    publically shame their teammates as racists for visiting the GOAT in the WH.

    Pretty stupid question by me. Everyone platoons during ST, so we won't really know how he's going to be used until April. Will be interesting to see.

    Are you serious with this rant? Yes, he has been a good teammate since he joined the organization. No he has not pitched in a game of any meaning for us, but he has still been a good teammate none the less. When the Covid thing broke and MiLB'ers in the system weren't getting paid, Price stepped in and shelled out $1,000 to each guy to make sure they still had something beyond the Dodgers $400 stipend. Being that he is a former Cy Young winner and never been a below average starter, he could have been a diva and said, "this rotation spot is mine". Instead he see's that the org has some great pitching talent and offered to play whatever role the club needed him to. That is being a good teammate.

    It's called just being a teammate.
    He is far from good.
    Just because he isn't being a horrible teammate lately does not then automatically make him good.
    Regardless of how much of his tio money he throws around publicly.
    If it was kobe the supposed worst teammate ever you would have never heard of anything good he did.
    Because good teammates try hard to not look like they trying hard to be good.
    You is or you is not.
    If you a good teammate you won't hear debates about you being a good teammate.

    Justin Turner is a good teammate.
    I don't need to cite any specific time he gave some dude money to buy a new suit.
    Why?
    Because some truths are self evident.
    And such is the word good.
    You either is good or you isn't.
    Don't mean your bad.
    Just not good.
    If you want to be good you already failed.
    If you try to earn the title of being good you will always just be a try hard.
    Be or not be.
    Do or not do.
    There is no middle class.
    Collective bargaining is a shakedown.
    For the middle men who run the circus act they call the middle class.
    Yes this is still about baseball.
    And yes it's a rant.
    Sorry kid but you have to know.
    When the rich fight the poor they use many cold fronts to fight in so they can always be one step of the weather.
    It helps knowing the news two weeks in advance. Specially when you and yours are in the news telling business.
    Scribes always commiting the same sin.
    So it may be blacks vs whites or cons vs libs or demons vs reptiles.... It's all smokescreen and scrap mines to get you confused deep into the babbleon and you don't see it's all about the rich vs the poor.
    And not just money wise.
    Once the middle class finds out they been duped and the rich stole all their land like they did to the indians they will be told and weak generationally to mount a defense.
    And the kids indoctrinated by the 4 years of Biden teachers at school will be come out swinging when they ready to enter college or the work force.
    They gonna want blood.
    So they will run to whatever camp will have them.
    And both sides will use new recruits as cannon fodder.
    So it's best to make your choice soon.
    Do you want to be rich or do you want to be poor?
    And really think of the implications of each.
    The price you must pay if you side with the rich.

    When this weather arrived in el Salvador thr antifa of the time were pressed on by the social justice warriors of their time to go and kill anyone who looked like they had a government job.
    Including local government.
    Which to them meant teachers too.
    And nurses.
    And anyone who wore white.
    Or had a professional job with a collar.
    Lawyers and doctors and engineers and artists all fled.
    My mom got her family out as a 19 year old smuggler.
    When she met my dad.
    And he risked everything to go back to Mexico so he could guide them through the country all the way from the border with central america.
    All so my mom's family arrived safely at the us border where they both passed them over a period of days.
    One uncle and his wife had to come in through a boat from la paz because it was too hot at the border and they were olympic swimmers who could make it to the beach easily.

    You think that can't happen here.
    You also don't believe in the enemy probably.
    Don't fear him.
    Never believe him.
    But you bet your ass he is real.
    And he's coming for you soon.
    Because he comes for the smart ones first.
    The rest will line themselves up and then dig their own graves and slowly lower themselves and lie down.
    To save the enemy bullets.
    Out of protest for our supposedly unfair bullet trading practices with the enemy who wants to kill us.

    I'm exaggerating...
    Just being crazy rube...
    If you believe that then you don't believe in the enemy.
    I'm not dr doom.
    But I know about the mood rd.
    And where it leads.
    I didn't hear about it.
    I was there.
    Twice.
    Cuz my mom was an adrenaline junkie.
    Not because she loved the edge.
    On the contrary she is the most timid thing in the world.
    Couldn't hurt a fly.
    Except if it's for a good cause.
    All my aunt's are like that too.
    As was their mom.
    All teachers.
    Except my mom. She was a model.
    But she was also valedictorian.
    All her older sisters became teachers and socialites and hated their lives. And when the socialists took over the hearts and minds they had to flee to any country that would have them because the socialites are hated by the socialists.
    But my mom worked at the board of tourism as a secretary for a year before finding it fun but lame and coming to america to clean toilets and get into all sorts of adventures in 1969.
    She didn't know what was gonna happen to the rich in her country. The middle class and upper middle class.
    But she speaks to god.
    And god drops hints.
    Then he gives you an urge.
    Before you know it you a blues brother.
    On a mission.
    From you know who.
    Who isn't you.

    Not a stupid question at all (and I know stupid). If they're going to use him against all comers he should be getting some serious ABs against LHs.

    The Dodgers have renewed the contract of.... ANDREW TOLES! Tolesy is back in a way. It is believed the team renewed his contract so that he can get the mental healthcare that he desperately needs. Hell of a move by the club.

    his situation is scary and sad, not only have the Dodgers org been trying to help but Justin Turner offered to pay basically anything for him

    hope he gets the help he neeeds soon. Not even so he can play baseball, but just to know he’s ok

    you'll be able to sit on the surrounding hillsides if you want to pay frank for a ticket and the $150 lexus parking fee
    need to sit 6ft apart and no talking or cheering
    it'll be great
