Sad, but has to be done. At leat they will be fully fixing the problem, and we can get him for the final run. Hopefuly Andruw, Nomar Kent can lead the way for a while. I'm rooting for Jones now more than ever.

i guess he didn't realize it was gonna be this bad... anyway, i wonder how this will work out after the season... will the dodgers re-sign? how much? will other teams offer more money? i guess we'll have to see how he recovers and helps the last month of the season.

I hope he is that added spark that we need with 20 games left in the season at which time I expect to be a fully tight race....

Wow... where are we going to get offense from?

And no one will be giving him a big contract in the off season. Dogers might offer him 5 mill and loaded heavy with incentives with an option for a second and third season.

I wouldnt be so sure about no one giving him a big contract. There's always a crazy GM willing to risk $12M

"He will have a disc in his lower back partially removed in a procedure known as a mirco-discectomy (say that three times quickly). As stated earlier, he will miss at least eight more weeks, putting him on track for a possible return in last August. But frankly, at this point, it's tough to imagine him playing again this year -- not because I don't think he will, but just because it's so far down the road that it's hard to even think about right now. What all of this means, of course, is that Ned Colletti basically HAS to find another everyday SS, and don't think the other GMs around the league don't know that. That means they will have ALL the leverage in any trade talks with the Dodgers, which probably means the club has to give up at least one of its valued prospects -- unless, of course, Ned ultimately decides there isn't another SS out there worth doing that for, and the Dodgers go with a Nomar/Maza/Berroa combo for the rest of the year. Hey, it's working so far. They might be 40-44, but they also appeared on the verge of moving within 1 1/2 of the Snakes after the Brewers took a 4-3 lead in the top of the ninth."

The lastest from Tony Jackson on our growing SS problem!

Do we start a "we-need-a-SS-thread" now?All kidding aside, this ****ing sucks. **** you Conte. We as PSD brethren should storm Dodger Stadium and start chants of firing all former gnats in the FO. They want to **** us over! Kent is the only former gnat that actually helps us and that's because he wants to win and that's all he cares about. These bastards like Ned and Conte don't care as long as the Dodgers don't win. I'm sick of this ****.

Absolutely, 100%, ditto +20!
It was all a waste of time, this DL stint for Raffy.
The Dodgers have gone from having the cutting edge, most innovative, leading technology medical department in BB to the 'corner drugstore' in treating and realizing physical problems of their players.

Bye-bye Furcal... He will not play again in Dodger Blue and I'm happy because of it because I can't stand players who get injured and lie about it. This surgery/decision could have been made a long time agao and we would have him back for the stretch run in late August/early September.

Let's look at the awesome duo of Conte and Colleti...

Furcal $39 Million. Played a total of 329 games. Roughly $118,500/game played.

Jones $36.2 Million. Can play a max of 283 games if he plays from the next game and doesn't miss another one through the end of his contract. Roughly $128,000/game played, if he plays EVERY SINGLE GAME from here on out.

Schmidt $47 Million. Played in 6 games, and saying he will start a full load from this week and make every start next year (estimating 30 starts) he can possibly play in 50 games in total. Roughly $940,000/game played. This number is obviously higher since pitchers don't play every day.

Garciaparra $18.5 Million. Has played in 130 games and if he started every game left could play 208 games. Roughly $89,000/game played, if he plays EVERY SINGLE GAME from here on out.

I can't wait until all of these scumbags' contracts expire so we can never see them again. I am still holding out hope on Jones, because I really think he was playing through injury from nearly the midway point of last year and so he should return to his form. Anyways, after these contracts expire, I can't wait 'til the C&C ***** factor is fired as well.

For now, let's go out and get a SS or call up DeJesus from AA where he is batting .306/.420 OBP/.381 SLG with 2 HRs 33 RBI and 11 SBs.

To be honest I'm a lot more afraid of the dodgers offense with Furcal in it than when's he's not in it.

Sweep??? Hardly. You have face two of three heads of the Giants that is Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain, Jonathan Sanchez.

Let's see you put your money where your mouth is; up for a lifetime ban bet? Let's say if the Dodgers finish ooohh... 8 games above the gnats in the standings?

I mean, your "three-headed monster" should keep you at least that close, right?

07-03-2008, 01:12 PM
Should have got this **** done from week one, and we could be anticipating his return after the ASB>Spot on, NZ. I've had 2 discectomies, and the reason there is so much pain is because the disc is no longer separating the vertabra, causing the bones to crunch down on a nerve root. No amount of PT is going to fix that. But once again, Conte's probably been sending him to the Free Clinic, and saving money on MRIs and big-time neuro surgeons. I continue to hammer TJ Simers to do a piece on this, and I hope he will.:mad:

07-03-2008, 01:30 PM
Out for 8 weeks? More like the whole year..we won't see Raffy in Blue the rest of the season..face the music.Got that right...realistic recovery time is 12 weeks = playoffs aginst Cubs. But when have these guys ever been even close on these estimates? One bonus point for J Gump who says he TOLD Jones to go get it done and get back here productive.

See, the dodgers were supose to be a legitmiat playoff contender, the Giants not so much. The dodgers are hardly in front of the Giants. And the dodgers offense has actully been worse than the Giants.
-------- R H 2B 3B HR RBI BA OBP SLG OPS
Giants: 344 756 180 20 55 329 .259 .324 .392 .715
dodgers:343 727 138 16 56 315 .257 .322 .376 .698

The dodgers have the Giants beat in one stat, that being home runs, and thats only by one.

With out Furcal the dodgers offense is a huge joke.

Either take me up on my bet or go back to your sorry *** team's moronic board and stop trolling here.

Like I said, time to put your money where your mouth is... or in this case, your future on the board. And if you're so ****ing confident then why not make it an even "which team ends up on top" bet?

I was willing to give you that 8 games but you're still running off your mouth saying you'll be ahead of us. Let's see it, man up and take the bet. I would love not to have you around anymore.

Any true sports fan should not revel in injuries. That's just ****ing classless.

And don't think you have a right to be here, you don't. You baited by attempting to kick us when we're down, you know your intentions were not innocent. You knew the reaction you would receive.

This has absolutely nothing to do with toughness. If you believe in your team, if you actaully think they're making the odds off run, then you'd back your words up with this bet.
