Poor choice of words for a headline, but according to LA Times Don Mattingly claimed after another Dodgers loss that:
“Basically, we’re sh**ty,” Mattingly said. “We’re just not that good . . . Home, away, whatever. I don’t know what that has to do with it . . . I really think you should talk to [the players]. I’m tired of answering the questions, honestly.”
The truth hurts. I’m hardly much of a baseball fan but the Dodgers are my favourite team and have been for a while. Never have I seen a franchise spend so much money on their roster only to get “shit” in return.
You would think last year they should have won the world series quite easily with their roster on paper and the way they performed. Instead they shit the bed against the Cardinals.
This year they are on the same track, they might not even make the postseason (they probably won’t, actually).
Whichever sole person has the most money invested into the Los Angeles Dodgers franchise should be disgusted and ashamed. How do you put in 200 million dollars each year on the roster alone and get crap in return? I wish I could do that and sleep well at night.
The Los Angeles Kings probably pay 1/10th of that for their roster yet Los Angeles natives could care less about that franchise. Yeah, that franchise that has been to the stanley cup finals twice in three years as well as the conference final the other year.
