The TEN: 5/20/2016

THE TEN (NEW)(“The TEN” is not a top ten but ten items worth being included in “The TEN”)

1.) “I despise the Dodgers bullpen.”—Tim Peterson, Arroyo High School Alum

2.) “I guess I owe Time Warner an apology! I’m sorry for always hating on you for blocking all of us SoCal fans from watching the Dodgers! You actually have saved us from many nights of watching the worst bullpen in baseball blow game after game! So thank you for sparing us the shame!!!”—Steven Cobbs, Walnut High School Alum

Freeway series3.) “By looking at this picture can you tell who won the freeway series between the Angels & Dodgers ??? Hahahahaha, hahahahaha, and hahahahaha.”—Dave Johnson, West Covina person

4.) “Chris Hatcher = Brandon League, Part II. I feel bad for the guy but enough already.”—Matt Khitikian, Village Christian alum

5.) Former Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, UCLA running back Wendell Tyler turns 62 today.

6.) Diamond Ranch names former El Monte head coach (2002) and Arroyo alum Eric Martinez as its HC.

7.) San Francisco Giants lead National League West by 3.5 games.

8.) On this date in Dodger history, 1979, Don Sutton became the franchise’s career leader in wins with his 210th victory, a 6-4 win at Cincinnati. Von Joshua was the difference with a ninth inning home run. Don Drysdale had been the Dodgers career leader with 209.

9.) On this day in 1985 Larry Holmes wins a 15 round decision over Carl “The Truth” Williams to retain the heavyweight title.

10.) “Dan Snyder oughta keep the name “Redskins” and replace the logo with a color photo of John Boehner. By the way, what special breed of asshat is still huffing Lucky Nons- on a tanning bed in the year 2016?”—Dennis Miller
(Recent Washington Post poll finds 90% of Native Americans not offended by name/logo “Redskins”)

    Good luck at Diamond Ranch, Martinez… You’re going to need it trying to stop Chino’s Double Wing Monster (a year stronger after a whole school year in the weight room), Charter Oak’s consistency, West Covina’s physicality, and Los Altos’ athletes…

    Everyone is quick to trash the Almont but if we look at the league with an open mind we see that Montebello has Pete who has one a CIF Championship at St. Paul and has won the last 3 Almont League Championships (hasn’t done much in the playoffs). Ramos at Schurr who had some good years at Bell Gardens (a run of league championships and a Semi Final appearance). Finally, the new kid on the block Beltran, who had one hell of a run at La Serna (3 Finals appearances in a row 1 CIF Championship). At some point we as outsiders need to stop criticizing the league and coaches and be excited for the future of the league in football!!

    Even if Keppel has hired a football coach and has a football team they will still not be fielding a football team.

    Mark Keppel is hiring John ‘the journey man’ Tuttle. He will coach his 3 years to get his tenure on campus and promptly resign from coaching just like at his last stop. Nothing to write home about, couldn’t like a fire under anyone even with gasoline and a lighter in hand. Good luck.
    From T. Peterson: Like a fire?

    I opined a month ago that Keppel would only field a JV team. With a incomplete schedule and small roster it would be dangerous for them to try to play in the Almont. Also it is only fair to inform the other Almont teams of their intentions so they might be able to complete their schedules without leaving a big hole. Those teams in the Almont should demand answers NOW!

    Keppel has made a hire…. someone who a commentator had predicted

    Trade Puig and Crawford for any young pitchers. Puig is bad news, a bad teammate and the ultimate I guy. A coach killer. Donny baseball will be missed; case in point, lifting Utley for with the bases loaded and no outs. The broadcasters thought Utley was hurt. No it was just a bad coaching move. We find out Utley was not hurt because he was in the starting lineup last night.
