Ned Colletti = Bill Bavasi?
"Especially when you have a lot of them, it's hard to influence a group of them. I don't know why they don't get it - professionalism, how to manufacture runs, how to keep your emotions in it."This got Dodger Blues all riled up, and rightly so:
"I'm angry and disappointed and perplexed and bitter."
Jeff Kent can sit there stroking his moustache and criticize the rookies all he wants, but they're not the ones to blame. In fact, the young guys have done nothing but help. The Dodgers are in the position they are because of Grady Little and Ned Colletti, period. I think it's safe to say that Little cost the Dodgers at least five games (maybe even ten) with awful game decisions, and Colletti fucked the team from the start by committing $108 million in the offseason to injured pitchers, over-the-hill veterans, and centerfielders who couldn't throw out so much as the trash if the fucking can was two feet away. It's a shame they won't even have the opportunity to lose three in a row in the playoffs this year.That goes double for Ned Colletti, who wasted $108M on useless veterans.
