Fun While It Lasts

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

No one should get carried away with optimism about Jason Repko's March Madness, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun to see a guy get two or three hits each day and make spectacular catches.

Repko will have to do it when the games count before he sheds the skepticism skin. (Sadly, he'll have that chance, it appears, at the expense of Jayson Werth, who had a setback. Steve Henson of the Times posits the right-handed hitting Repko as a platoon partner for Ricky Ledee.) But all hail Repko's day in the sun. Gets the pre-Opening Day juices flowing.

Anyone know what number Jason Phillips is going to get? Will he able to shoulder the responsiblity of wearing Todd Hundley's old number? (9 for those who forgot)

I assume Jason Repko would get a real number if he makes the big team. Or maybe he wants to wear 75.

Alan Mills wore 75 with some distinction.

Boy, this whole LA Times vs. LA Dodgers feud the past year has really left me jaded.

I read this quote (Dodgers.com)...

"He's opened a lot of people's eyes, including mine," said manager Jim Tracy. "What's there not to like? He gives maximum effort every time he's involved. He's a baseball player, a winning-type baseball player, the kind of player I like very, very much. He has a lot of heart, a lot of character. He's the type of player I've seen our fans fall in love with."

...and it makes me kind of not like the kid. I can just see the Plaschke headline when he gets sent down or traded.

His spring OBP of only .440 in comparison with a .404 BA leaves me feeling a little cynical as well, though it's not as suspect as Romano's .393 OBP and .379 BA last spring.

Icaros, is Repko the second coming of LoDuca? Sure sounds like it from the Tracy quote.
