Recap: "State of the Dodgers Panel" @ ESPN Zone

ESPN Zone and ESPN Radio held a "State of the Dodgers Panel" last night. {linked here} I decided to go since Jon Weisman of Dodger Thoughts was going to be part of the panel. Most of the talk was on Frank McCourt. And to be honest, it's depressing.

Former Dodger Jay Johnstone was also part of the panel and he has the following idea:

"Let's trade James Loney and Jonathan Broxton to the Milwaukee Brewers for Cecil Fielder, excuse me, I mean Prince Fielder"

That's nice Jay but you sound like those fans that call DodgerTalk and make these ridiculous proposals. Why would the Brewers do that? Sure it would be great for the Dodgers but I don't see the Brewers agreeing to this type of trade.

I was reading reviews on L.A. Live the other day and I remember reading a comment that says L.A. Live is the New York Times Square of the West Coast.

No it's not. I've been to Times Square and trust me, L.A. Live does not compare to Times Square.

L.A. Live is small and nobody is there.

Hey Roberto, got to this post late but the last guy at the panel looks like my professor, Jeff Fellenzer. he was the same professor teaching this class: http://www.vinscullyismyhomeboy.com/2011/01/ned-colletti-usc-right-now.html
trivia note about Fellenzer: when he operated the scoreboard before there was diamond vision, he was the one who was operating it during the Rick Monday flag play.
