With six you get egg roll.
As the trading deadline approaches (nice opening half sentence), Ned Colletti is in a rather unenviable position. The man without the contract extension may be forced to make some kind of a signature pitching move, or two or three, in order to secure his post. If he, and I mean Colletti, is really the GM of this team then, budget notwithstanding, he is under enormous pressure to win now. Or is he?
Perhaps it is just me, but does anyone on this blog believe that this year's team can progress unimpeded through the playoffs with the starting pitching as it is now constituted? How confident are Dodger fans with this proposition? These are really rhetorical questions and are not meant to be answered but mulled.
It seems time for our news media (Mr. Shaiken) to provide us with Ned Colletti's mindset into these matters, transparency or no.
I, for one, believe that this ballclub is two to three arms away from a championship. That's three players. When was the last time the Dodgers appeared this capable of a pennant and trophy? Last year was the opening act. Let us hope that fear of future diminution by Colletti, if he is the GM, will not sabotage this perhaps once in a lifetime opportunity to win now at all costs.
For what more is there really than that?
