Andrew Friedman’s Regime, and The Bums of His Dreams

I can’t believe all nine of these bums have pitched for the Dodgers this season. You can blame the injuries for some of these guys being on the roster, but not for everyone. The Dodgers are not the Tampa Bay Rays. There is no reason to run a large market club like they’re a small market team. When you have the money, go out and acquire good pitchers. They don’t have to be game changers, they just have to not be horrible. This is what you get when you acquire pitchers with established histories of injuries, arm surgeries, and mediocre talent.

On the bright side, Andrew Friedman and the new front office is very close to realizing his dream of an entire pitching staff comprised of non-roster invites, and minor league journeyman. There are certainly always exceptions, but when you don’t go out and get reliable arms you suffer the consequences. Lesson learned, you get what you pay for.
