    Fucking midget.

    Maybe if Garcia doesn't go nuclear and cause the long delay DeClerc is sharper for the 9th.

    Unless he's braindead I don't see any way the HBP was intentional. Love watching The Lizard getting all hot and bothered.

    Dodgers choking while the Astros play in the World Series every single year. What a wonderful sport

    It does seem that way, for sure. Great year. Classy guy. Just like not signing Trea Turner and so many others.
    Forget Ohtani...he'll be a great seasonal player, and catch the Dodger disease in the post season...what difference will he make ? None at all.
    Better off keeping Betts off the post season roster, too. Proved he's a zero multiple times.
    I say make Muncy the DH, and get a 3b who can field and throw, because Muncy sucks out there.
    Then again, the Albatross Roberts will nullify everything that's done, so fuck it.

    while true, if Ohtani is hitting 40 something homers in 5 months of season, then he'll be worth every penny

    “As far as what the future holds, I have no idea.”
    — Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts

    hilarious
    he was referring to urias, but this could be roberts go to response to [literally] any/everything

    I'm going to be around but going the way of THINKBLUE and huh?. Not totally homo but I just don't have anything more than a passive interest in the team as long as davey is here.
    Watching the highlights of Philly doing everything possible to gut out last nights win just reinforces what we aren't and will never be.

    been losing enthusiasm the past couple years
    the players have no fire, and idgaf what anyone says — that is 100% on management
    yeah i get that the manager doesn’t pitch, hit or field
    but it is — again 100% — their job to have their team prepared to play and win, and roberts has failed to do so (especially the past two years)
    yet dodgers/roberts apologists continue to blame the players
    problem is the cast of players changes annually
    someone used this analogy before…
    do you keep blaming soldiers for getting killed if it’s the same general leading them into battle?
    nvm, rambling

    bottom line, nothing is going to change with roberts at the helm
    so until he’s gone, no one should expect different results (see einstein’s theory on insanity)
    i’ll always bleed dodger blue, i’ll just be doing it from a distance until roberts dismissal

    and i certainly won’t be spending any money on their lame product

    Amazes me that Eovaldi is still around and relevant. Remember when we traded him for Hanley.

    what a douchebag announcer asking Bochy multiple times after the game how it would feel going to his next WS
    yeah all the Rangers have to do is beat the bastros in a game 7 nlcs nbd
    Bochy answered multiple times he's not even thinking about that and focusing on the work in front of him
    how do these people have jobs?

    I asked Chat GPT why Roberts should be fired:

    The ultimate goal of any MLB manager is to win championships, and while Dave Roberts did lead the Dodgers to a World Series victory in 2020, it is essential to consider the broader postseason picture. Under Roberts, the Dodgers have consistently underperformed in the postseason, often falling short of expectations. This raises concerns about his ability to manage high-pressure situations effectively and make the necessary strategic decisions when they matter most.

    Scherzer gets hammered early for 5 runs. Rangers peck away at the lead and win late.

    How's that?
