    This team has got to figure some shit out

    Padres and Giants aren’t just gonna go away. They play us tough every fucking time. Someone’s gotta light a fire under their ass.

    Im not one to shit on Dave (I genuinely think he’s fine and every manager has their problems. I doubt many fans like their managers and have issues with every one of them), but enough of this babying shit. Stop being passive and get them riled up.

    Theres no leader on this team to get anyone pumped up.

    Hopefully this is just a Padres thing and not a slump we’re about to get into, cause we don’t face SD until late August and So it can be easy to forget this series. But damn, with the giants sweeping the Angels you hope this wasn’t an inflection point.
    Nothing really positive to come out of this. All parts of the team looked not good. Not awful, but not good

    I keep beating a dead horse but they just really haven’t hit a second gear. The team really needs to figure something out because if we go into a wild card game against them I don’t think we make it out. Padres play with fire. We don’t.

    It’s far from just his fault but the Dodgers really need Mookie Betts to step the fuck up.

    I mean if it somehow comes to that, they'll have to face Buehler, who tends to turn into about the best pitcher in baseball when it matters the most

    i think you hit it on a previous post
    even though you like dave you realize somethings missing...passion
    a willingness to try something different in a given moment to wake the guys up
    he just stands there w that look of confusion because he's doing everything right
    winning clubs make their own luck

    The Dodgers are just not that good this year. Some of the names in the lineup just are not doing the job....pitching and hitting.

    Frustrating how they can't lay a glove on SD's starting staff.

    Pads got the key hits and made the plays in the field (fuck off Manny) the entire series. Dodgers botch two plays in 8th and Pads throw their gloves at them in the late innings.

    Victor's gone from reliable to erratic. So frustrating to watch a reliever struggle with his control.

    Amusing to listen to him whine about his shit luck re. the HR ball. Hanging sliders/cutters get crushed, dumb ass. Nothing to do with luck.

    i get what you mean but also: that Padres fire is wildly inconsistent. A week ago they looked dead. Same happened earlier in the year, they had all this great play and then went into a shit run of play where they looked lifeless. That’s why they’ve been behind us in the standings. It’s how we beat them when it mattered last year and how even during this series which ultimately was a sweep was mostly close. They’re a good team that’s not going to go away, but I’m way more concerned about the boring Giants who need to go on a slump SOON.

    i think the Dodgers have proven over the last few years, and even this year, that they can go into a slump and come out of it on a hot run. I know my optimism will annoy but I just refuse to think we’re not the best team in the division and that the Padres won’t be looking up to us yet again. Like the 2017 DBacks, 2018 Rockies, and 2020 Padres that everyone was worried about

    He’s so incredibly annoying and truly comes off like he cares more about his personal little games than winning games
