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

    If May, Bazooka, & Treinen come back as before... That's enough. But if one of those isn't up to snuff, this loss of Buehler is death.

    Oh ... And I love Clayton but I fear he's done, man. Something feels off there. Don't know why I feel like that but ....

    Barnes is 100% correct. But Commish Manfred, a bought-out pussy of the first order, will suspend and fine this kid for this.

    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.

    Good info.
    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.

    My dislike ( our dislike?) of LoCal is well documented here. As Dodger fans, even at our most skeptical, it's easy to go "full eff off mode" on the shit brown & mustard clad team from Jack Murphy land.

    But praising these city connect abortion colors they seem to love - shit, journalists loooooove them from what I've read - is proof of devolution in my opinion....

    How can anyone other than Karens or ragingly gay men like this vomitacious collection of hues?

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