    Taylor is a great complimentary piece to give some guys some rest we are lucky to have such a versatile player that is not bad or great as an of the bench piece and that is his role

    Pederson is strictly platoon until he learns how to be decent against lefties that’s the only thing holding him back from being elite but if he snaps out of it he will reward you handsomely and make you look like a genius. But for this season he lost the battle to Verdugo and having him as our everyday starter balances out our lineup and makes us that much stronger

    It’s not rocket science what you see is what it is let the kid play worse case scenario he is great trade bait if your not impressed. What is ones teams trash is another teams treasure

    Joc and the Dodgers have both made the decision to stop trying the hitting lefties thing.
    He is what he is
    If he is going to 136 wrc+ against RHP and come up clutch in the post, he's a guy you want on your team.

    The only question is, if you have a player like Verdugo who can hit both LHP/RHP, hit for a high average, low K%, good OBP, XBH, better defense and arm...who would you rather have?

    The Dodgers need to figure that out or wait until Pollock goes on the 60 day DL.
    Or, if Muncy can handle 2B, perhaps you slide Bellinger back to 1B to pen RF for Alex.

    it’s like we say every year...
    too many platoon guys that can hit only rhp or lhp
    and when they go into slumps they’re even more limited

    Adrian, Turner, Seager (maybe), Kent and Manny, and perhaps Hanley are the only recent players off the top of my head that just knew how to hit the baseball no matter what. They never went up there and looked like a complete moron for days, weeks or seasons at a time. A healthy Drew could rake as well.
