DODGERS: Bullpen blows seven-run lead in last two innings vs. Phillies

Full story: LA Daily News

It's never sunny in Philadelphia for Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton. His latest miscue came against Carlos Ruiz, whose two-run double in the bottom of the ninth finished a frantic rally from seven runs down and helped the Phillies topple the Dodgers 10-9 on Thursday night.

My hopes for 2011:

Matt Kemp won't get too low ( I don't think he gets too
[ psychologically ] high)
Ned Coletti wil admit ,after being fired, that he has been a giants mole whose mission was to bring down the Dodgers
The judge in the McCourts divorce will order the sale of the team rather than allow an epic battle between them
Kuo will become the closer,Bellasario and Troncoso will be as good as they were in 2009
Russell Martin will be back at 100%
Reed Johnson will take up yoga and that will heal his nagging injuries and he will become the Dodgers starter in left
Broxton? No need to state the obvious
Sometime in the near future the new Manager will be:
Kevin Kennedy, or Davey Lopes , or Mike Soscia

“Fick?”

Mark Cuban will buy the team and it will have a $200 million payroll.

And as long as Broxton closes, they won't beat the Phillies.

Trade Kemp for Victor Martinez (catcher) and let Russel Martin walk, keep Jay Gibbons in left and move Podsednick to center. Keep pitching staff in tact and we win next year.

Oh, Torre has to go, he can't coach National league. Hire Davey Lopes to manage.

Time for Broxton to go..Nice guy but unfortuanatley he cant slam the door shut and that whats needed in his role..Also, Matt Kemp never did mature the way Ethier did, trade him now while there is still value..Definitly keep Bibby and Posednik..
