NL West Notes: Stewart, McCourt, Belt

The latest from the NL West, where the Rockies have built a 4.5 game lead over the Dodgers, the defending World Champions, the D'Backs and the last-place Padres

  • Steve Foster of Inside the Rockies wonders which position player the Rockies will call on when they decide 13 pitchers are no longer a necessity. Ian Stewart, Chris Nelson, Eric Young Jr. and a number of other former big leaguers are among the candidates to join the Rockies.
  • Dodgers owner Frank McCourt is essentially facing "the prospect of his second divorce in 18 months," Yahoo's Tim Brown says of MLB's takeover of the club's financial operations. "And the guy who fought his way in will fight more ferociously on his way out, you can be sure of that." Brown hears from a friend of McCourt's that he is a "street fighter" at heart.
  • Giants GM Brian Sabean told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle that his team isn't left-handed enough. Brandon Belt, who swings from the left side, is playing left and right field in the minors and he'll almost certainly stay in the outfield when he returns to the majors, according to Schulman.

McCourt is more like a “street hustler” than a fighter.

Unfortunately for McCourt, hadoukens generally don’t hold up in court.

McCourt is a Street Fighter? Maybe Dan, but come on, he sucks.

McCourt is a streetfigher, but only on streets frequented by children under ten and crippled old women – and even then he’d get his ass handed to him.

Ain’t no place for a street fighting man.

You’re the only person I’ve heard of to have EY2 on a fantasy team.
