    Dodgers definitely didn't get no one back for Mitch White, they just got two pieces who are far off.

    That's what I thought still it seems we end up with a bullet in our own foot
    Can easily take care of that in the off season

    It's a recurring theme, but White would sure look good about now.

    racist

    This guy agrees that Krumbel shouldn't even make the postseason roster.

    Lot of good stats here, but two stick out to me:

    1. His last clean appearance was July 13. Since then, he's pitched 12 times and allowed a base runner (or base runners) in each.

    2. How many saves does he have on the season where he protected a one-run lead? Zero, zilch, nada.

    There is NO WAY a team with legitimate WS expectations can go into the postseason with THAT as their closer. No way. Furthermore, as the writer of this blog says, with a max of only 13 pitchers allowed on the playoff roster, even in a non-closing role he'd be taking a spot from a more deserving and more valuable guy. Fuck that.

    I say cut ties now so Roberts can experiment with different guys closing as a potential committee, and therefore have a plan come October.

    Also, Krumbel is a great nickname.

    meanwhile bauer remains out
    have to wonder what ozuna’s punishment would have been if he was white
    yeah, racist
    • Braves outfielder Marcell Ozuna was arrested and charged with DUI and Failure to Maintain Lane, Atlanta’s CBS 46 reports. Ozuna was also arrested in May 2021 on assault and battery charges, and suspended 29 games retroactively under MLB’s joint domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse policy.

    Always admired how Eckersley handled things after the Gibson bomb. Answered questions right afterwards like a pro and never made excuses.

    i remember saying something like he would forever be a part of history how could he be mad?
    i was in my 20s and recall it having a real impact on how i viewed adversity and grace
    listened to him many times since and that's just who is and that's incredibly impressive
