    you answered part of your first question w your second
    CT is the plan for JT or any other positions
    i think Lux sees more time in the OF because why not?
    he looked more than adequate most of the time and a team of CT's works for me
    thinking rat xenobots

    It depends on the off-season frankly. If the move is a Freeman or a Matt Olson, then Muncy, JT, Taylor, Pollock, and Lux are splitting time between 2B, 3B, LF, and DH. Taylor can play all of them, pollock only LF, and Lux could possibly play all of those too, while JT splits time between DH and 3B and Muncy between 2B, 3B, and DH.
    The way I see it, we need two more bats. We need 10 guys who are capable of everyday spots for 8 positions (I’m excluding catcher). The 8 we have now are JT, Trea, Lux, Muncy, Taylor, Pollock, Bellinger, Betts. Beaty, Rios, McKinstry, they are there, they can be end of the roster guys but not much more. We need two more and both need to be left handed

    I saw Gil Hodges play...I saw all the Boys of Summer play.
    My family had relatives that lived in Flatbush, and when we went to visit, my dreamboat older cousin and I would walk up Bedford Ave to Ebbetts Field and catch a Sunday game. She rescued me from a boring afternoon of family bullshit and turned it into magic memories...
    Gil's wife still lives in the same house in Brooklyn they did back in the day.
    He was as strong as an ox...

    @BlakeHarrisTBLA
    On his latest podcast, Jon Heyman thinks it’s between the Astros and Dodgers for Carlos Correa Also added the Dodgers seem most likely for Freddie Freeman if he doesn’t return to the Braves.

    Correa is arguably the most hated player by Dodgers fans.....that'd be quite the move

    This.

    The Trevor Bauer level of doucheness is about as much as I can handle. Don't know any possible way that I could stomach Correa doucheness. That would be worse than LAL signing Lebron, which pretty much ended my love affair with the Lakers. Yeah, I know that not everyone will agree with this, but I believe there IS a limit to the "who cares if he's an asshole, as long as he can play" mentality. At least there should be for the classier organizations. You know, the ones that don't put cameras in center field in the playoffs.

    My dad was stationed in Japan with the Marines, and my mom was still in HS. I don't think they had even met yet.

    Yeah, 14 should be retired and get a circle out there with the Duke, PeeWee, Campy and all the rest...

    That box score was an interesting read. Maury was hitting at the bottom of lineup. It was his first year as a fulltime starter.

    off topic a bit
    but i still remember vinny announcing “the familiar wills/buckner/davis top of the lineup” in the early 70’s
    pretty solid top three from an era that no longer exists…
    a prototypical lead off hitter, a perfect contact bunt/hit and run guy, and your .300 #3 hitter
    too bad the rest of the lineup couldn’t hit
    a lot of 1-0 and 2-1 games with guys like osteen and sutton routinely going 9 innings

    Now, if Dodgers are feigning interest in Correa just to drive the price up and screw the Asterisks, that I can get behind.
