just a reminder, and I know it's been said a million times. if you are routing for the Giants in the NLCS, then you are not a Dodgers fan.

would you trade Kershaw and Puig for Ferandez and Stanton?

@DodgerDodger @finleysgrandslam I think the Giants have been luckier than the Royals. But I also think their luck is powered by Satan, and that Satan will ensure their luck runs through the rest of October.

Also. I have finally accepted the fact that the Giants are going to win another World Series and that we are going to see at least three out of these four things: Vogle Perfect Game, Joe Panik walk-off, Buster Posey bases clearing double in the top of the 15th to go up by one.

@Sad Towel @DodgerDodger @Sugar-Free Generic Grape Soda @Disgruntled Goat those two things are kind of related. when you've got a .287 OBP, you don't really have as many shots at stolen bases.

i am ok with having a few unknowns in in the lineup. especially if they are coming from within our system and don't cost us any form of lengthy, bloated contracts, bad trades, or lost draft picks. 

we signed Guerrero & Arrebabuerena (yeah) for a lot of money. if we''re not going to trade them (and we're not) then why wouldn't we want to give them an opportunity to play in the big leagues?

per Eric Stephen, the other day, "This is the same guy who gave James Loney a $21MM deal." 


I'm looking forward to shaking things up. There are a few guys I'd like to keep around (Kershaw, Ryu, Greinke, Kemp, Jansen, Gonazalez) but the rest of the team I could go with or without.

Would be so pumped to have Russ back. Ellis is a fan favorite, and a great leader, but really didn't produce at all during the regular season. he was great in the NLDS, but you can't count on that happening again.

Problem with Martin (or any other catcher) is that they're so much better off going to an AL squad where they can play every day without having to catch every day.

@BlueMarvin @finleysgrandslam I'm not saying I don't want a new GM. But right now it's not really going to make me feel any better. Maybe it will next year or during the winter if he/she makes some great moves. Right now it's just a PR move, though.

You're all just grasping for anything positive to hang onto. Firing Ned doesn't bring us back into the NLCS or magically erase the fact that the Satan Series is about to start.

I'd love to see him gone, but I'm not saying Ned is the difference between this year and a Championship team.

also, last night will probably the last time we ever see Andre Ethier in a Dodgers uniform, which is weird. Even if he didn't really play all season long.

What do you think are the biggest needs for the Dodgers this year? 


I would go with: 


1. A solid way forward for the OF

2. A bullpen that does not include anybody named Chris Perez or Paul Malholm

3. A healthy infield 


None of those involve major trades. Maybe a few call-ups. Thoughts?

I am pumped for the all-star game. The Home Run derby was so boring. Not just because Puig Dodgered it. Holy sleepy time. I think they need a new skills competition. Maybe a throwing contest for outfielders? I think it would be fun watching Dee & Hamilton play pickle, even. Get creative, MLB

I don't know what all of these nominations are about, but I'm pumped to see Grant Holmes already that high. I'm also pumped that we're heading into the All-Star break with the best record in the NL, the best pitcher on the planet, a dude in the homerun derby, and four all-stars.

So with MLB offense in a huge decline, wouldn't it be prudent of the Dodgers to keep any bats they have at their disposable.

First. Awesome post. 


Second: How has Kemp been worth -0.2 WAR this season? Is his defense that bad? His offense hasn't been super-star level, but has Mike pointed out it's been pretty decent. 

Third: I think Dodgers fans need to remember that we are still tied with the Giants. It's not like we won / ran away with the division. It's still June (for a day). Plenty of time for crazy things to happen eihter which way. 

Also, Kershaw. Wow.

which is more pressure for Lebron:

Playing for the Lakers - actual history and expectation of winning, real comparisons to Kareem, Magic, Shaq, Kobe etc.
