Alexander Guerrero Will Be Good, Unless He Won’t Be

…and:

…and:

The point here is not to disparage any of these reporters, most of whom I have great respect for, because they are largely passing along quotes they’d heard from within the game — and that is the point. With most of these international players, particularly the ones from locked-off Cuba, there’s going to be a wide variety of opinions within the game. As you can see above, there were plenty of people who didn’t like Puig or Ryu either, and they worked out pretty well.

Alexander Guerrero might in fact be a complete bust. We just have no idea. I could say “remember Yunesky Maya, but, of course you don’t remember Yunesky Maya, because he was useless. Just keep that in mind this winter, when you hear these reports about Guerrero, that we’re not really going to have any idea what he is until he hits the field.

Really only thing we need to know:   How's his bat flips?

Seriously, I think this is good in that the options to back up Hanley besides playing 2B are pretty limited.

@mike_petriello I'm not a spam bot, I swear. This has gotten way too annoying/frustrating. I'll still read, thanks

Sorry guys, I've tried to keep posting, but every link I post is being spammed (twice tonight alone). I asked Mike to help me out, but no progress. It's been fun! I really hope next year is better!!!

Does anyone think that Donnie pulling this stuff in public is good for the Dodgers?

How much would it cost to just buy the Rays? They've got some guys we could use...

From the source that most everyone here mocks: (1) Matty will not be ready for spring training. (2) Sue resigned completely on her own & it had nothing to do with the crazy number of injuries. (3) Nat'l media's take on the Mattingly interview is completely different from the LA media's bewilderment.

@EephusBlue Don't think it matters all that much. Either they'll extend him and he'll be happy or they won't and we'll find someone else.

@CptPineapple It would be great for the Dodgers maintain contact with the Rays as well as ANY club with an intriguing LH bat like Matt Joyce ( Kelly Johnson also though he'll soon be a free agent). The Rays could use relief depth from what Ive heard, so perhaps packaging Belisario for Joyce could work for both clubs

@LA_Woman i think it's weird that they said kemp had torn cartilage removed. nobody ever said anything about torn cartilage AND the freaking dr neal w/e guy said that surgery was very unlikely and if he did get surgery it would be after a month to see how much the ankle healed... wen kemp injured his shoulder he kept playing and when he got surgery they said it was worse than they thought. why does this keep happening??

@LA_Woman If I hear from any mod that it will be a solution, then maybe. It's just frustrating that I've been here for quite a while and I'm constantly spammed. I emailed Mike a while ago and didn't hear anything back

@DeucesWild @LA_Woman  Well, when they're here, they find the spams in their email. But they're not up this late. I'll bug Mike too. He probably gets sick of me. I bug him about things not working a lot.

@LA_Woman Blame Livefyre!! And if the mods could've helped at all, blame them, too.

@LA_Woman I tried staying away for a few days in case it was frequent linking. Now that I've tried, I'm a tad more frustrated at the moment. Maybe I'll try again another day. G'night!

@LA_Woman That would get annoying to do that every single time I want to comment. I shouldn't have to jump through hoops, that's my hang up
