It's total bases... so the Dodgers should stop play for EVERY single and beyond that Gonzo gets. Anything to get the Dodgers outta rhythm!

moved past steve finely recently into 60th place and is sitting at 4166 with 6 so far today (1 HR, 1 2B).

Could move past some pretty elite company still this year by getting another 100 or so and moving into 50th place.

49 Brooks Robinson 4270
50 Eddie Collins 4268
51 Vada Pinson 4264
52 Tony Gwynn 4259
53 Charlie Gehringer 4257
54 Lou Brock 4238
55 Dwight Evans 4230
56 Willie McCovey 4219
57 Jeff Bagwell 4213
58 Willie Stargell 4190
59 Rusty Staub 4185

He does have ManRam (4075) and Arod (4066) on his tail though.

He's having a surprisingly good year. I guess we are going to hear quite a lot about that in the next few days. We are halfway through the season and he is going to come out of the day with an OPS+ somewhere around 127-128
We all know his defense detracts from his overall value, but that's still pretty impressive.

Yet more egg on the face for the organization. Oh Joy.

By the way, I'm an abstainer when Gonzo comes here. I don't boo him, but I don't cheer him either. I cheered my ass off for him the last game of last year. He's no longer on this team. And I already said thanks for the memories. But I am fine with the people who want to cheer for him doing so. Thats what baseball is about too. Everyone experiences it their own way.

I dont cheer for him either nor do I have any grudge against him. I am certainly glad we didnt keep him around even with the struggles of quentin and others.

However, I find it interesting that with another year or two of decent play, he could end up in the top 30 or 40 all time in total bases. Thats similar to getting 3000 hits or 450 HRs in my book. Certainly longevity plays into that but it is still rather impressive.

No doubt....extremely noteoworthy, and a real accomplishment.

I'm pleased that we haven't heard any verbal cheap shots from him recently. It's a lot easier to appreciate his past accomplishments when he's not mouthing off. Hopefully it doesn't restart while he's in town.

Yeah...but I'm getting sick of the dumb Sakura commercials..."I didn't know I'd be such a good dodger"...

I view Gonzo's 2007 mainly as confirmation that a) he was dogging it here and that b) Melvin's just as bad at managing veterans as he is at managing young players. He isn't getting anything extra out of anyone. Guys will put forth precisely as much effort as they feel like and they will be treated based on whether or not they are "his guy".

Gonzo got to 4258 passing Charlie Gehringer at 4257 putting him one behind Tony Gwynn at 4259. Hes still in 54th since ARod passed him. manny ramirez not far behind either so he could sit in 54th for a while

I would not have guessed that Shawn Green had a better career OPS. Green was a much better player than he is remembered as.

Green also made a hell of a lot more money than Gonzo:

Green: $100.6M
Gonzo: $63.4M

Somehow, despite being $36.4M poorer than Shawn Green, I don't think Gonzo will have to live on beans and cat food in retirement...
