The title of this blog is a reference to former Dodger prospect Andy LaRoche. Dodger manager Joe Torre was abysmal in his mismanagement of LaRoche’s playing time. Arguably, he never had the chance to prove himself worthy of a roster spot while with the Dodgers. Such is life. Hopefully he can revive his career as a Pittsburgh Pirate.
Sadly, LaRoche won’t be the last Dodger prospect to have his career tossed about like yesterday’s garbage. He joins a long and (somewhat) distinguished list, along with Hee-Seop Choi, Edwin Jackson, Dioner Navarro, Willy Aybar, Jayson Werth, Cody Ross, and many more.
I enjoy baseball immensely, as well as collecting baseball cards — that was the primary focus of this blog since its inception. That may not be the case — focusing on baseball, that is — from here on out.
