They pitched Eric Milton last night. And they WON! I'm stupified. This is the same guy who I once held up as a symbol of why the Reds would never be a winning franchise again. I actually said that out loud.
This is the same guy who has never recorded a season ERA under 4.32 except for one year in which he pitched only 3 games. The same guy who has led the league in only two things his entire career: runs allowed and earned runs allowed. The same guy who had not won a game since 2006.
Yeah, that guy.
The Dodgers have proven me wrong again. They proved me wrong on Orlando Hudson. They proved me wrong on Randy Wolf. They proved me wrong on Juan Pierre. They proved EVERYONE wrong on Manny Ramirez (they're averaging more runs per game since Manny got himself suspended). It's crazy. Eric Stults has four wins, Jeff Weaver doesn't suck, Brad Ausmus is hitting .355. Juan Castro -- JUAN CASTRO -- is hitting .400!
So, I'm just going to get in the passenger's seat and let the Dodgers drive. They don't need my help. No more comments here about what the Dodgers should be doing or aren't doing. No more dispensing of advice. And if you're coming here for insight about the Dodgers on your fantasy team, or a quick gambling tip, then you are:
1. Going to be disappointed
2. The worst gambler in the history of time
I will say no more. Because the Dodgers don't need Longoria or Lincecum or Santana or Greinke. Hell, they don't even need Chuck Norris in a catcher's mask. Because they have Uncle Miltie!
Sheesh. Who am I to argue?
