I just realized my avatar represents Greinke's opinion of the other NL west teams.

17 hours, 42 minutes ago on Dodgers 3, Padres 0: Zack Greinke continues NL West dominance

When isn't Mattingly non-commital on the DL? I'm sure this will result in "2 days" of a short bench turning into 10, or something very close to a DL stay while he hems and haws about the decision.

@Purple Drank I think theres a happy medium somewhere where he gets a couple starts a week

2 days, 6 hours ago on Dodgers 2, Giants 3: A walk-off sacrifice fly was appropriate

I know it had no effect on the outcome but I hated the 6 man infield strategy bottom 9 with bases loaded. This shift trend is getting ridiculous. Advanced stats are great and all but its starting to cause over-managing throughout the league in my opinion.

So Mattingly is still prone to wasting bench spots by being indecisive about DL stints.

Oh well 8-3 hard to complain.

@uosɹədəɔıu sǝɹpɐd ʎɹəʌ™ I will still respectfully hate him unless he ever puts on another ballcap though.

@uosɹədəɔıu sǝɹpɐd ʎɹəʌ™ He can only do so much by himself. Media keeps saying "They'll be fine because Posey". Even Posey can't make 7 other guys hit.

@uosɹədəɔıu sǝɹpɐd ʎɹəʌ™ A lot of "they have awful stretches every year and still win the world series" excuses being tossed around by national media. I don't buy it. This year they finally bottom out. You can only back your way into the playoffs with a mediocre lineup and 2 months of hot pitching so often before it bites you in the ass.

@Lobo Of course I'm like 8 years behind on my gaming so it maybe was a bit more attractive to me

@Lobo I grabbed it for $5. I already owned DA 1 & 2 for xbox but the replayability is so high, and with a bunch of other games tossed in, totally worth it.

Speaking of which, haven't heard so much as a whisper about Ryu since the spring. No news is good news? Seems like the team has the luxury right now of taking it slow with his rehab.

The few mistakes the staff has made have been capitalized on. That's all. If they stay healthy, and Ryu comes back himself, I'm not worried.

@Casey the DeliMan @Nineteen84 I've taken full advantage of that pun possibility by naming my fantasy squads "Bay of Puig's Invasion" the past 2 years. It doubles as a Cuba pun! 


But this year I went with "Pederson's Joc"

I know the numbers say the offense was excellent last year, but this lineup just has a different feel to it. Like they're never out of a game. Its the difference between consistently putting up 5 or 6 runs instead of scattering 10 run outbursts amongst a string of 1 to 2 run games.

I just did a double take looking at the box score - Guerrero caught up to Adrian in RBI in 2 starts and a pinch-hit. I could've sworn Gonzo had more than * ribbies. #SoloDingers

This with the caveat that we have no idea how he would adjust to a prolonged slump

Great bench bat, yes. Which should be his role.


But at least he's showing that if Uribe and Turner somehow both got hurt for an extended period, that he wouldn't embarrass himself.
