    makes sense bringing back three guys who haven't been playing and throwing them all in the starting lineup
    while resting the only RH who actually has been hitting and not using him in a key situation
    certain we see the same guys the next two
    the pinhead will "stick by his guys" and spin us into a tailspin just watch

    If anyone could manage that, it's Robots. Guy is almost uncanny with it.
    Team really looks bad out there.

    Shouldn't need a manager to fire them up.

    Another shot at the team that kicked your ass in the Series a year ago should be enough.

    And as usual, the Dodgers come up short vs the AL.......forget winning a series, I have huge questions if this team would be capable of winning two games in a series vs the Astros/Yankees/Red Sox.

    Surely, AJ Pollock will get them over the hump.
    Not even going to allow myself to get excited about this team.

    One of the main things about the first half success, in my mind anyway, was the better contact rate and drop in Ks team-wise. Really made a huge difference.
    But going over the last three weeks or so, you see Bellinger, Muncy, Turner and of course the catchers, and
    Kike whiffing way more in that period, including last night's fiasco. Alarming.
    Doesn't bode well for a limp offense that all of a sudden has gone ridiculously cold.
    Robots, the announcers, ESPN, et al, may have us already as a post season and series shoe-in, but the ones who don't, the other teams we play, certainly aren't buying it just yet.

    Hey, if LA collapses epically & does not make the playoffs ... we can all tell that story to our therapists for years. Plus, we'll have more time for football in October.

    The NL would have to be worth a damn for them to collapse and miss the playoffs.
    The collapse comes in October.
    But yeah..football.

    don't disagree
    but if roberts is going to get credit when the team plays inspired baseball
    he has to assume some blame when they show up flat

    I despise Roberts. He has no sense of what's going on and uses zero common sense. I understand wanting to get Seager, Freese and Pollock back into game shape but was it really necessary to put them all in at once? Especially when it means benching the one guy (Taylor) who was actually hitting.

    Most managers are pretty bad. I remember being in complete awe at how bad Joe Maddon was during our playoff series against the Cubs. Regular season, too. And that is somebody who is achieved league-wide adoration.

    None of them kept Taylor out of the lineup. Kike did (for some unknown reason).

    Seager did. Taylor had been the primary SS during Cory's absence.

    Boston is a -180 fave today. Opened last night at -165, and the bettors are likely gonna play that bet harder before first pitch. Line may even go up to -190 ... Judas, what a mess. Stripling may just put a tee out there instead of the hazard of standing on the mound ...

    First Maeda and now Stripling. This is why I hate the All Star Game. We can't put our best starters out there yesterday or today because they'd be going on 2/3 days rest. "But it's for the fans!" What a joke. The ASG should be played after the season... or not at all.
