Just a Couple “What the Fuck?!” Items

November 16, 2016

–Dave Roberts steered the Dodgers to a 91-71 record and was named NL Manager of the Year. The Dodgers had a payroll of $279M.

We’re not calling the Cubs a small-market team ($188M) but they did manage to put up 103 wins. Sorry, Joe Maddon. The other finalist, Dusty Baker, is a rank idiot but he also managed to win more games than the Dodgers did (95) with even less payroll ($143M).

 

–Felix Hernandez is 30 years old and has 2262 MLB innings on his arm. So how’s he going to spend his winter? Pitching winter baseball, of course, home in Venezuela. Dangerous for his arm, danger as a kidnap risk. King Felix has made 30+ MLB starts every year since 2006, so let’s tempt the Durability Gods, shall we?
