Dodgers Sign White for Albuquerque; He Is the One Who Stinks

Note: don’t forget to enter the Opening Day roster contest!

Hey, if you have more than 100 games of major league experience, your signing as a non-roster guy gets a mention. It’s just the way it is. Matt Eddy of Baseball America has the latest list of minor league transactions, and in addition to Mark Lowe & Kevin Gregg, who we knew about, it seems the Dodgers have signed former Mariner Sean White as well.

White, a righty reliever who will be 32 in April, saw action in 105 games out of the bullpen for his hometown Mariners in 2007 and 09-10. He pitched to a 4.16/4.49 ERA/FIP, which is bad but perhaps shockingly good when you realize that in 134 innings, he struck out only 59. Unsurprisingly, it’s hard to stick around in the bigs like that, and so White has seen time in the PCL in each of the last five seasons — 2008-10 in Tacoma, 2011 in Colorado Springs, and 2012 in Salt Lake, where he signed in May after having been released by the Red Sox in spring training. I know that the PCL is going to PCL, but over the last two seasons there, he’s pitched 110 innings, striking out and walking an even 75 apiece while allowing 86 earned runs.

After reading all that, I’m wondering if he’s even worthy of the Isotopes, because: yikes. Later today, we’ll kick off Chris Jackson’s projections of the minor league rosters and see if White has a shot in a crowded group.

Jake, in my experience, the best way to really get to know a lady is to hide in the bushes outside her bedroom (or even better, bathroom) window.

For spanish we have to do a project where we make a creation legend. Can any of you help me think of a school appropriate creation myth but still a funny one. (i.e. creation of fire)

Last night on MLB network I saw TLR and several others roundtable discussion. If you missed it you should find the replay of it. TLR spoke very little but what he said was very profound. Especially when asked about Instant reply and most notably about the expanded window of interleague play and the DH. "The National League treasures their style of play. You will never see the DH in the National League. Playing for 1 run and defending against 1 run is the most challenging aspect in baseball. And the National League will always keep that aspect of their game." I give him the respect and support that statement deserves! Most of us dislike TLR for a lot of reasons. Me, mostly for his success at at our expense. But he knocked it out of the park last night!

Swydan's exercise in duo projection went favorably for Kershaw/Grinky as the top Duo. I do think Strasberg will have a crazy good year this year. But Gio won't be a 20 game winner either. Whether he gets suspended or not. Soriano will be the difference maker for them coming out of the back of their pen. But they also have Haren who may or may not be up to having his normal year. One thing I have noticed is commenters on ESPN insider aren't the sharpest of individuals when judged by their reading comprehension.

I get VND angry every time I hear somebody say that the Dodgers have the money, but the Giants have the chemistry.  Other spring story lines I'm already sick of:  Trout is fat, Hanley can't play SS, Strasberg will win 25, the Yankees are poor now, Detroit has the best rotation ever.

That way, you can say things like, "That new yellow bottle of Herbal Essences really suits you, but you really should lather, rinse, repeat.  Always repeat."

 @Deuce giants fans like to think of themselves as unappreciated underdogs. I too am tired of them complaining the Dodgers have money and are suddenly overdogs. I mean come on. We havent won a WS in over 20 years and we are suddenly the bad guys?

 @darknesssss Dude u are hanging out with some weak sauce people. The goal isnt to get as much tail as you can. Its to find someone you can be with and share your life with. THat sounds really sappy but its fucking true.  If all u do is spend your life chasing pussy then I feel sorry for you.
