Good afternoon, everyone
Chris Fiegler (Latham,NY)
What Players will the Dodgers Cut or Send to the Minors After Spring Training to Trim their Roster to 25?
Tony Jackson (3:00 PM)
They made first round of cuts this morning. List is up on my blog
How many homers will the Dodgers get from Ethier?
Tony Jackson (3:01 PM)
Good question. One of the things I am most interested in seeing this year is how he handles being in his ''walk" year before free agency. Does he put so much pressure on himself that he implodes? Or is he motivated to the point that he has an incredible year. Only time will tell.
I know you aren't working the ownership beat, but did Patrick Soon-Shiong ever join an ownership group?
Tony Jackson (3:15 PM)
I don't believe he ever has. If so, it hasn't been reported
Fernando A to Z (Santa Cruz, CA)
Has there been a lot of commotion with the perspective bidders at Camelback and who do you think or heard of talks being the favorite to win bid to own the Dodgers
Tony Jackson (3:30 PM)
Other than the occasional visit from somebody fromm one of those groups (Cohen, Kasten), there has been almost no buzz here whatsoever. As for the favorite, it's impossible to tell at this point, although there was a report in USA Today yesterday that Cohen has emerged as a favorite and has Tony La Russa on board to join the front office
Tony Jackson (3:35 PM)
Going to shut it down for this week. Thanks as always for your participation. See ya next Thursday!
