Joe, it time to go! Take all them losers with you. Broxton was a flash in the pan. STOP putting him in.Let him pitch batting practice so the rest of the team can think they can really hit.

What a disaster Broxton was last night! His team mates couldn't be too pleased with him.
And whose idea was Dotel? That guy is as bad as Broxton.
Kenley Jannsen would have been a better choice.
It is all about making good decisions and Torre makes very few lately.
We need Mark Cuban as an owner, Kim Ng as GM and Mickey hatcher from the Angels as the manager.

A carpenter is only as good as the tools that he uses. With better tools, a carpenter may become famous for his works.

Now, about Torre and the tools that McCourt gives to him, the obvious failure here is "NOT" Torre! If a patient in a hospital needs a lung transplant to survive, you give it to him/her. If you are the Doctor,(McCourt) and you don't, the patient dies. Why is it so hard for some of you to do this math???

The very day that McCourt bought the Dodgers, the Dodgers were screwed! And now, we painfully see the end result of McCourts ownership. How sad for us Dodger fans! Damn!!!

Joe's done...years of a great manager, the time has come. The Dodgers need to be sold to an owner who enjoys baseball not a dysfunctional person. Peter and family must be so disappointed as should the people who allowed the McCourts to purchase the Dodgers. Maybe the city should take over ownership of the team and provide smooth management and leadership to the operation of a well oiled machine...

Broxton needs to understand that he doesn't have to throw the ball through a brick wall to get a batter out. If he took 5mph of his pitches his control would improve greatly but being as big as he is physically he thinks he has to throw 100mph on every pitch. Is his contract up yet?

My beef was that Joe used Dotel and Broxton, two guys you can't trust to hold a lead. I agree that the roster sucks. And I guess you agree with my take on management.

Broxton is a disgrace.

I wonder if he feels any guilt robbing money from the Dodger organization.

Yes sir, I do agree. However, if McCourt does not give Torre the right tools to get the job done, then Torre is up against the wall. Boy do we need change upstairs in this organization!!!

That could be said about others as well. My thinking is that when your hot, your hot, but when your not, your not!!!

Tools for Torre? He is the worst @ bullpen managment even when he has guys, Broxton to close? WHAT? He burned Kou, and I was @ this game & it really hurt, JB is gong trade his sorry big butt away, he cant make it menatally here anymore, Torre is a lame duck moving to Maui aloha LA & all the BS that goes with it, McCOurt will likely pick Don Mattingly & pass on Wallach, who will go somewhere & be a great MLB manager....and by the way what happend to Kemp & Either, are theuy both hanging & partyying with Rhianna & her possee, Either swings more then an Chimp in a tire on a rope, Kemp is a great hitted with no one on, one runner he is a worm killa with dat bat.....and Blake, dont get me started again...

I am convinced that "Batting Practice" is not taken seriously by most of the Dodgers players. Eithier leans forward and swings at low outside balls that if left alone would have been just that, a ball. Blake stands there at the plate as if he was in a trance and let's perfectly pitched balls go by as if he were blind.

I watched the game last night and it seemed as though most of the Dodgers had a very difficult time hitting the ball out of the infield. Although injuries have pleagued the team a lot this year, the active players should at least be able to hit the ball out of the infield!!! The bull-pen is like a garage. If you don't put something in there with some power under the hood, you have NOTHING!!! And tools,,,,yes,,,,without tools, how can you fix anything??? McCourt,,,,you're useless!
