    I like him when it comes to baseball but yeah his other takes are fucking garbage. Dude thinks he’s a moral God. Speaking of bloggers who are fucking weirdos: Daniel Brim

    Look ... not saying I'm gay .. I'm not ... but I'm powerfully attracted to some of you in here.

    Wait ... what were we talking about?

    Julio Update

    Multiple law enforcement sources tell TMZ Sports ... the domestic violence case against Dodgers star pitcher Julio Urias is "weak" based on the evidence.

    We're told the video of the incident does show Urias making physical contact with the woman during the March 13 altercation in the Beverly Center parking lot -- but as one source puts it, "It doesn't appear there's criminal intent to injure her."

    One source says it appears Urias used his hands in an attempt to stop her from leaving the area during a heated argument.

    In other words, it seems as though he was trying to restrain her, not strike her ... though the woman DID go to the ground at some point during the argument.

    ---
    But yeah. "CUT HIM!"

    The only parallel to the justice system, Dustin, is that we demonize people before considering the evidence or lack thereof.

    Not saying Julio is off the hook, but clearly people were quick with the hammer regardless.

    Well I may have been a bit hasty with my anger, but do not be surprised if MLB still levees a biggish suspension on him to make a point of never putting yourself in a position like that. It sounds like he was still in the wrong somewhat, but not nearly at the level that some overacting 15 minutes of fame "good Samaritans" would have you believe.

    If the league suspends him for an incident off the field that was not a crime he should sue.

    To me, purposefully throwing a baseball 95 mph at a defenseless batter is worse than what this appears to be. You could literally KILL someone if your release point is off

    Still a rockhead for doing whatever he did in the public eye. No different than SFG's owner..he didn't really harm his wife in their episode..unintentionally pulled her to the ground trying to grab a phone..but the shit happened in public. Be smarter. Some people can't be smart and angry at the same time.

    the longer it takes the less it sounds like they know what to do with it
    if they were arguing and he puts his hands on her trying to restrain her thats THEIR business
    what if she was threatening to jump from the parking structure
    all this holier than thou shit needs to stop
    life and relationships aren't perfect and people yell at each other and try to make each other crazy
    he had a bad moment like we all have most likely and all the sanctimony i'm hearing from people is boorish
    god forbid people point fingers at the finger pointers

    Article out of the Athletic this morning has there being a little bit of tension between the catchers and coaching staff towards Kenley Jansen. Jansen’s insisting on calling his own pitches against the scouting report and he’s getting hammered from it. He’s refusing to bend and Roberts even cites his stubborn attitude in the piece while not actually calling out Kenley(just describing him).

    There is a serious problem brewing with Jansen, IMO. He’s refusing to to even consider relinquishing the closers role if say the team were to sign Kimbrel, even while he is struggling and coming off of back to back postseason failures. He’s living in the middle of the zone again (something he was doing a lot last season), but now it is worse than ever as not only is his Velo down, the cut on his pitches isn’t there the way it used to be. The Dodgers bullpen is shaky as Baez is the only reliable piece and that’s terrifying to say. If the team does not address this big time at the deadline, we’re staring at more postseason failure.

    I'm sure the player's association will challenge it if a suspension is handed down.

    There is absolutely no shred of proof to believe he did anything wrong.
    Sometimes you have to grab the woman you love by the pussy in order to save her life.
    She may be mad crazy at the moment and not fully in control of her faculties.
    As happens frequently to women who know they have a man who loves them and can take care of them when they get crazy.
    Are you gonna let the woman you love who is out of her mind angry run into oncoming traffic because you are afraid how it will look if you have to grab her and take her to the ground to save her life?
    You deal with it.
    You let the cop arrest you.
    You explain yourself and fight the case.
    And if you go to jail because the law is broken and the judge feels like all accused of shit like this need to be found guilty because of cultural trends... then you go to fucking jail.
    Like a man.

    Or you can be a pussy and let your loved one run into traffic because you want to protect your career or your image or your self.

    Hopefully the Larry Baer incident is the comp we are looking at when the smoke settles. He was spazzy, and dumb to do what he did in public - but a far cry from a wife-beater.

    I was so pissed when they re-signed Kenley. This shit is not new. There are some who piped up to defend the report that Kenley was pissed about LAD's Aroldis chase, but that kind of shit doesn't just come out of nowhere for no reason. Kenley is a jackass

    Kenley is a cancer.
    Ruiz- plus for that lefty on the Pirates
    Sign Kimbrel

    Cut this fat ass if he continues to be a bitch.

    Couldn't handle it when he was moved from catcher
    Couldn't handle it when Chapman was rumored to be coming here
    Still has an archaic mindset of what a "closer" is
    Refuses to evolve
    Even when he was great, he choked when it mattered most.

    Sad thing is, the David Vasseh AM 570 propaganda machine will yell at any caller who suggests Kenley isnt fit to be a relief ace on a WS team.

    A big fuck you to all the fans (s/o Dusty Nosler) saying to release him 5 minutes after the story broke with basically zero account of what happened.

    In the world of Kershaw, "It's just having a chance to win the World Series every year ..." (occurs at 2:50 mark below)



    Ummm ... having a chance is great ... blowing it horrendously in 2017 is NOT a chance. It's called choking, CK ...

    And Puig was the dumb asshole on the team. Seems there was more than one.
    And it's not a scoop by the Athletic either...Orel Hershiser, the boring, inane old man, said it on last night's broadcast, bigger than shit, for all to hear. Used the word "ego", too, describing Kenley's shakeoffs.
    Guess it's merely only drivel until someone else backs it up.
    Appears to me, publically, the guy has got big balls and calls things they way they are, even regarding other matters.
    I don't know what you do about a guy like Jansen behaving like this...pretty sure the manager has to nip it in the bud real quick.
