    Even Steiner and Orel said that they don't know what is a strike anymore. That was bad. I can't blame Blackmon for being upset, all the strike calls were not strikes. That being said, they were in the same spot and he never adjusted. Still, really fucking bad

    Expand the freaking strike zone as a hitter. I have yet to see anyone beat the umpire to change it. Common sense tells you, yeah the umpire suck chunks of asshole but in the end he is still going to call his suck chunk asshole no matter what.

    Adjust you are professional hitters. But then again professional hitters seem to die in a Dodger uniform. Aka Manny Mierda Machado

    Yeah, you get difference of opinion on that one, and it is an interpretation of the rule...like the check swing. A description with no solid parameters, really.
    Damn, but balls and strikes shouldn't have a formless, undulating zone, based on each umpire's idea of what it is to them individually.
    That's bullshit, man.

    was truly terrible
    like eric gregg terrible
    fine to give a pitcher one side of the plate, but not both
    you're supposed to establish a zone and stay consistent
    that's what pissed both turner and blackmon off...
    just abominable

    agreed
    a couple guys with career years (taylor, barnes) and others (joc, kiké) coming through at the key moments
    bummed that kersh and kenley had a couple blips, but wouldn't have gotten there w/o them
    still pissed at whatever idiot made the decision to start darvish for game 7
    whoever it was...

    The one to LeMahieu should have been the game tying HR. Just a hanging piece of shit.

    DODGERS GAME PREVIEW
    Buehler, Freeland and awards recognition
    by Eric Stephen | True Blue LA — 32 minutes ago

    [​IMG]

    The latest Dodgers weekend attempt to track down the team ahead of them in the National League West comes Saturday night against the Rockies, with two of the best pitchers in the league facing off at Coors Field.

    Walker Buehler won’t win the NL Rookie of the Year; Ronald Acuña Jr. and Juan Soto have seen to that. Likewise, Kyle Freeland is well behind the NL Cy Young Award-vying triad of Jacob deGrom, Max Scherzer and Aaron Nola. But both have still been fantastic, and a big reason why the Rockies and Dodgers have the two best records in the division.

    Buehler has a 2.92 ERA this season, and with 115 strikeouts in 104 innings is trying to become just the fifth Dodgers rookie with more strikeouts than innings (minimum 100 innings), and only the third without previous professional experience in Japan.

    Buehler has whiffed a career-best nine in two of his last three starts.

    Over his last seven starts Buehler has a 1.48 ERA, allowing seven total runs with 51 strikeouts and 14 walks. The Dodgers first need to make the postseason but if they get there it wouldn’t be a shock if Buehler is the Game 2 starter, if they earn the luxury to line things up as they want. It’s probably not a coincidence that the current rotation order has Buehler following Clayton Kershaw.

    Freeland has been terrific in his second year, with a 2.96 ERA in 28 starts. If we stop right there, that’s enough, since in the previous 25-year history of the franchise only one Rockies pitcher has qualified for the ERA title and posted an ERA below 3.00 — Ubaldo Jimenez (2.88) in 2010. Jimenez’s 161 ERA+ is the only one in Rockies history to top Freeland’s current 157 ERA+.

    What sets Freeland apart this year is how he has excelled at Coors Field, with a 2.27 ERA in 12 starts. He’s allowed five runs in his last five starts at home, and the last time he gave up more than two runs in Denver was on June 10.

    Since Coors Field opened in 1995, the only pitcher to post a sub-3.00 ERA in at least 10 Denver starts was Jorge De La Rosa (2.76) in 2013. Tyler Anderson, who starts Sunday for Colorado, posted a 3.00 ERA on the dot at home in 12 home starts in 2016.

    AWARDS SEASON

    Freeland ranks fourth among NL pitchers with a whopping 6.7 Wins Above Replacement, the Baseball-Reference version, behind the aforementioned trio of Nola, Scherzer and deGrom. Freeland’s peripherals haven’t quite matched his results so his FanGraphs WAR is 3.3, but that’s still tied for eighth in the league, tied with teammate German Marquez. That duo, plus Jon Gray (3.2 fWAR) rank in the top 10 among NL starters, which gives an idea of just how strong the first-place Rockies’ pitching has been.

    Sucks that they never caught on that Darvish was tipping. Personally, I would have started Wood. He proved he earned a shot with his game 4 performance.

    i think we need to give the guy a chance to get his sea legs

    Beyond the tipping, Darvish wasn’t right, as his non stint with the Cubs seems to suggest
