Dodgers have a familar name vying for 2B bench depth spot


Recommended Posts

Am sure this is a Failio but am also sure you all saw that CHONE FIGGINS is a non-roster invitee to the Dodgers' Spring Training camp vying to be a back up middle infielder guy.


He's probably slowed up a step or two and with a player like Figgins where speed is about 90 percent of his game, if he loses a step or two, well, that's real bad news for his chances of sticking around.


Another guy who sought riches in Seattle and ended up with a decent bank account but a career in tatters........oh well, things could be worse, I guess, a career in tatters and an empty bank account.


Don't see him sticking with the Dogs -- should make a few of the Angels-Dodgers games interesting. I don't think they are doing the traditional freeway series this year because the Dodgers are opening up the season in Australia.....on March 25th or some date like that..........then the Dodgers come back stateside and play something like three exhibition games against the D-Backs before 'resuming' the regular season..........


Because of this Australia trip -- which seems like a logistics nightmare for the players -- expect a lot of the Dodger non-roster invitees and minor league players to be kept around so they can be in the line-up for those three exhibition games vs. the D-Backs...........what great games those will be -- three meaningless Spring Training games with players who have already been told they're not making the 25 man or 40 man roster.........


Figgins may start all three games..........may be the last three of his career.

LAA Mike -- thanks for the correction on the freeway series games -- so the Dogs games in Australia must be March 20th or so -- because I know they play Arizona when they come back and then three with the Angels??


Expect some of the Dodger regulars to sit out some of these games entirely.
