The Dodgers aren’t done dealing, as
I explained in my last post, but they were plenty busy at the Winter Meetings.
Gone are Matt Kemp, Dee Gordon, Tim Federowicz, Miguel Rojas and reportedly prospect Tom Windle. In are Jimmy Rollins, Howie Kendrick, Brandon McCarthy, Chris Hatcher, Yasmani Grandal and others.
Knowing that there’s more to come, looking just at the past four days, how did the Dodgers do? Feel free to drop a comment in.
How would you grade the Dodgers’ moves at the Winter Meetings?
Well, you got your wish. Sort of.
In my last poll, I asked which Dodgers coach or executive should be fired.
About 94 percent of you thought someone should lose their job and just under half of you thought it should be general manager Ned Colletti. Don Mattingly was a relatively distant second.
Thursday morning, we awoke to find a Dodger team with no general manager, Andrew Friedman as President of Baseball Operations, and Colletti serving Friedman and Stan Kasten in an advisory capacity. (If you slept through Wednesday,
here’s the full story.)
The question now: Are the Dodgers a better team today than they were yesterday? Leave a comment below once you’ve voted.
Are the Dodgers a better team today?
Compared to 2013 the Dodgers made progress in the regular season, winning 94 games, only to regress come October. This year they won just one game in the postseason; last year they won five.
Inevitably, there will be personnel changes. We’ll get to the players in the coming days and weeks. Today we ask: who among the Dodgers coaches and executives would you dismiss?
You can choose everybody. You can choose nobody.
You can write lots and lots of angry comments. You can write votes of confidence.
Who should be fired?
