    Well I guess it is on now. Hopefully his time as a dodger will not be HR or bust unless he is hitting 50-60 a year!!!!
    I was more interested in watching Yama go tomorrow. Won’t see it live but hope to watch later in replays. To me Yamamoto and Glasnow are the key to our season and postseason hopes.

    Well moments from Yamamoto first pitch
    On a side note I would hope some one would figure out what blackmail Barnes has on the Dodgers too keep his sorry ass employed.

    Real short test. 12 pitches faced 4 lefties 2 righties. 3 K’s. Did not throw a ball though one batter chased strike three out of the zone. I don’t know why am I so excited buzzed focused following him. Was not this way with May Gonsolin or Buehler. Was with Kersh though

    Walker Buehler said he felt good during his live BP yesterday, and that his fastball was sitting 94-95 mph He said he’ll probably need another 3-4 live BPs before being ready for game action, but sounded encouraged about his progress lately

    Well kinda hard to be interested in watching these games after the first three innings other then to see how Stone Grove Sheehan Gage and Varland does to figure out the bullpen and 5th starter now as our reg 13 players are set in stone with Kiki on board

    What are the odds he sees live game action before all star break. I would be shocked.

    My take away from this game is not Pages or Yamamoto or any player...it's that the umpires, relentlessly and unabated, as always, still suck jizz and eat shit.
    Thank you.

    Kinda glad he blows because with Kike back on the team, the multiple E. Hernandezes in the box score was already getting a little confusing.

    We need him a helluva lot sooner than the AS break. Hopefully by the time the post-Korea season starts, but if not then 2-3 weeks in.

    I hope we don’t need him that soon but I guess if Miller or Paxton blows. My worry is I don’t see Buehler being able to sustain much quality for an extended period or go deep in games. That is manageable for a couple months and I want those months to be September and October

    Not one to overreact to a few spring ABs, but Will's 1-for-11 start following his poor final couple of months last year doesn't instill much confidence that he's put that slump behind him. No need to hit the panic button yet, but I hope he figures out during this preseason whatever it is that has changed.

    Not sure about this Crismatt cat. Gnat and pAAdre rejects rarely work out.

    But you gotta love Spring Training. Dodgers win on a GS, and 4 guys I've never heard of score.

    We traded Yordan Alvarez for Josh Fields.

    I think about this once a week.
