It's the Giants. Don't expect anything. I don't even expect us to win tomorrow
You are right, until today's surprising uprising the Cardinals have been bad against teams with winning records.
Peavy is terrible, him wearing a Giants' hat hasn't given him any magic whatsoever.
Cards should bust him up
I'm just gonna assume Ryu is never coming back
oh, and racist
amazing thing happened toward the end tonight
the game actually became fun again
trayce running wild
joc bunting [and hitting]
watching the guys in the dugout having fun made me remember how fun winning used to be
i'd like to feel that way more often
we all would
The base stealing had me flashing back (no, it wasn't the acid) to the days of Lopes and Wills.
I wanna pick up Trayce in fantasy but I know the second I do I'll jinx him and he'll slump. So rest assured I won't!
Woke up this morning to find out I've got field level seats to the game today!
Happy (hopefully) Sweep Day!
Ran a quick google flights search and all of them are crazy expensive
Dodgers lineup: Utley 2B Seager SS Thompson RF Gonzalez 1B Kendrick 3B Pederson CF Grandal C Hernandez LF Kazmir P
Maybe I'm just on the high from CC's DFA but I kinda like that lineup? Pretty interesting, and I like Trayce hitting 3rd and I like Hernandez getting some reps in LF.
i like the lineup as well
trayce has definitely earned hitting 3rd
Like the Trayce move, but the lower part of the lineup is crap. Here's hoping Grandal and Kike can shake their slumps.
roberts kept penciling him in the #3 spot day after day when he was struggling
and now, when he suddenly remembers how to square up the ball, he sits
but i guess it's his scheduled day off
just kind of ironic
aj and grandal is pick your poison
would you rather have a bad bat or poor framing?
not that aj is a slugger, but certainly less inept than the current version of yasmani
Getting a duck snort usually propels guys to streaks but I'm not holding my breath for Yasmani. AJ at least gives you a coach on the field and can throw runners out being a traditionalist myself that is all I ask for in a catcher. The framing thing I still can't get on board with still but if the numbers say it's effective then I have to accept it for now I guess.
if you still have last night's game recorded check it out
there were a couple times aj cost us strikes because of poor receiving
think it was fsu who pointed out how he caught a breaking ball palms up
might not seem like that big a deal but it is
those extra pitches could have meant another inning from kersh
ultimately it didn't matter as our pen shut them down
but any time you can avoid using baez (or hatcher or howell) it's much less stressful
btw, how about our pen lately?
blanton has been better than advertised and seems to be oozing confidence out there
Holy hell, someone not named Turner is batting 3rd today? It's a miracle!
Fair enough but I felt Kershaw was off the entire night so I don't think he would have lasted passed the 6th even with that pitch. Sometimes catchers get crossed up but no harm no foul as you wrote. Pen has been real good since the last couple of weeks (knocking on all the wood I can find).
