Quote of the Day: the Dodgers and their fans are crabby

Aug 17, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

It's been a pretty bad year for the Dodgers, both on the field and off. Sometimes, though, that's just how baseball goes, ya know?

“From all of my years of watching the Dodgers (and I started paying
attention in 1971), I have never seen a year marked by such whining and
complaining by players, coaches, executives, and even fans.”

Friend of the blog Bob Timmermann, writing about how the 2010 edition of the Dodgers has been one of the crabbier and finger-pointing seasons in living memory. And he spends many paragraphs providing a comprehensive outline of all of those who have been deemed worthy of blame at one point or another this year.

Yet, despite all of this, Bob can’t look away. Because sometimes that’s just baseball. And he’s a baseball fan.

    But I thought Joe Torre was some kind of guru who was able to pull men together despite themselves and guide them to the Promised Land. Kinda like what Joe Girardi did with the Sith last year….
