So what's the way-too-early prediction on what the lineup is going to look like?


Rollins

Crawford

Puig

Gonzo

Kendrick

Uribe

Grandal

Pederson


Something like that?


Hmm.

@Disgruntled Goat @baeksu I may actually giftwrap them both in the same package and when he opens it, tell him "pick one, I'm keeping the other."   lol

Goat, there is definite backlash over that.  There's a contingent of Tea Party types who are up in arms about the change.


OKC logo reminds me of something you would have seen from a Negro League era logo... kind of a throwback to the Kansas City Monarchs or somesuch.  I love it.

@Disgruntled Goat @baeksu Yeah I like the OKC one a little better but around the city for some reason it seems like the one on the right has been more popular.

Just bought my first two shirts from the OKC Dodgers fan store.  Now I have to figure out which one I'm going to keep and which one I'm going to give my dad as an Xmas present.

@Moderately Excited Towel Because Mattingly was the manager who sent Ethier directly into a black hole for most of last season?


Seriously, from September on, who played more?  Pederson or Ethier?  I honestly don't know.

@DKD Your primary objective is to win championships, not collect players who are loved by fans.  Fans will usually learn to love whoever is winning games for their team.

@Hoze @TheConman @baeksu I'm probably overlooking his defensive value if he was 5th in WAR amongst shortstops.  Batting average, OBP and OPS were Ethier-esque.

@Jacopo (How is this a bad plan!) I think the idea is to sell high.  If you think that Kemp has the most value right now that he'll have for the next few years, and you can get a lot in return, and you have a crowded outfield, then why wouldn't you shop him around?

@capnsparrow  @baeksu I agree, Cap.  I think if the Cards win game 3, you've got to go Kersh on short rest in game 4.  


If the Dodgers win it's a lot more of an open question.

So is it safe to assume that Kershaw will be pitching in game 4 no matter what the result of game 3?

Am I the only one who really, really is unconcerned about the possibility of the Giants upsetting the Nats?


Assuming we get past St. Louis, which of course is a HUGE assumption.  I just typed that while knocking on wood.


But I'd feel much more confident about facing the Giants in the NLCS than the Nats.

@Weston Taylor @DBrim To me, game 3 probably determines the winner of the series.  So the baeksu projection is that the winner of game three is 98%, and the loser is 1%.


The other 1% is an ebola outbreak turning everyone into zombies, making it impossible to finish the series.
