Jim Tracy On The Hotseat?
I promised myself that I would start writing about the Angels, or the Padres, or fantasy baseball or something else....
But living 10 minutes from Chavez Ravine, and having attended my eighth Dodger game of the season last night, I think I just am thinking too much blue.
Let's just say it wasn't too exciting watching a 9-5 drubbing by Derrek Lee, the Cubbies, and a rookie pitcher. Still, the team is hurt by injuries and platoons and a bunch of young'uns struggling through slumps. And there was some noise in the Stadium when Saenz went yard.
And so, as those being valid excuses in my eyes, I do not agree with the increasing feeling on the major Dodger blogs that Jim Tracy has got to go.
Dodger Thoughts has a more rationalized, point-by-point analysis on the situation. Whereas, team bloggers Jerry & Steve have drawn a line in the sand. Yes, okay, their site was already named FireJimTracy.com, but the Cubs series pushed them over the proverbial edge.
The best Los Angeles blog out there, LA Observed has the wrap up.
My, what a difference a month makes!

The next time I go to a dodgers game, I'm wearing a bag on my head, but next year, with drew healthy, they'll make a run in the postseason. But they need to resign Jeff Weaver for some depth in their rotation. And anyone who likes the giants, here's a good example not to. 2002 when they had a 5 run lead against a sorry Angels team, they couldn't close the deal, and they never will!
