About Jon
Thank You For Not ...

1) using profanity or any euphemisms for profanity
2) personally attacking other commenters
3) baiting other commenters
4) arguing for the sake of arguing
5) discussing politics
6) using hyperbole when something less will suffice
7) using sarcasm in a way that can be misinterpreted negatively
8) making the same point over and over again
9) typing "no-hitter" or "perfect game" to describe either in progress
10) being annoyed by the existence of this list
11) commenting under the obvious influence
12) claiming your opinion isn't allowed when it's just being disagreed with

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

Sons of Steve Garvey has been going for a little while now, and I want to recommend it to you for the following reasons:

  • It's Dodger-centric but not Dodger-obsessed.

  • It's intelligent but not patronizing.

  • It's clever in kind of a Deadspin way.

  • It's prolific - seems like there's always something new here.

    Check it out and see for yourself.

    There goes my idea of having a long discussion of "For Better or For Worse" on The Griddle.

    The post on the guy and his Dodger hat was a good laugh. Probally he has too much time on his hands though...

    Thanks for the publicity, Jon. We are always inspired by Dodger Thoughts (and its worldly and erudite band of commenters), but we have enjoyed the journey finding our own "voice."

    For better, or for worse.

    But man, this is tiring--and we have a team! Thanks for keeping the bar so high, and please stop by any time...

    Not patronizing? We'll get to work on that right away.

    Seriously, much appreciated.
