The Fat Frenchie goes down

Following the obligatory whining over the Dodgers 5-4 loss to the Giants on the postgame show on KFWB, the hosts revealed that Eric Gagne is probably done for the year. Here's what AP says --Dodgers closer Eric Gagne might need back surgery. After being hospitalized Wednesday because of lower back pain, an examination Thursday revealed two herniated disks, trainer Stan Johnston said, adding a decision on surgery will probably be made by the weekend.

I never want to see a player suffer an injury, though if someone has to, it's nice to see Jeff "Clubhouse Cancer" Kent unable to suit up tonight at Chavez Latrine. But doesn't it seem damn suspicious that Gagne all of a sudden began to throw 100 mph about 5 years ago, then a few years later began breaking down big time? Yet never a skeptical word has been written about Gagne by the local sports media lapdogs.

It is to the eternal credit of the LA Times that they've provoked the ire of George W. and his sycophants by printing the truth about warrantless spying, eavesdropping and accessing bank and phone records of American citizens. But apparently it's hands off when it comes to reporting tough stories about the Dodgers.

Anybody who paid 30 smackers in any Rotisserie league (like someone did in mine) for that bloated old toad as a closer got what they deserved.
