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.
17 hours, 44 minutes ago on Dodgers 3, Padres 0: Zack Greinke continues NL West dominance
@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.
6 days, 4 hours ago on Rockies @ Dodgers April 19, 2015: Puig isn’t Back Anymore
@uosɹədəɔıu sǝɹpɐd ʎɹəʌ™ I will still respectfully hate him unless he ever puts on another ballcap though.
1 week ago on The Almost-Amazing Dodger Pitching Staff
@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™ Doesn't mean they sucked the rest of the season, just saying how they seem to reach another level when the playoff push comes around
@uosɹədəɔıu sǝɹpɐd ʎɹəʌ™ To propel a team with an 82 win lineup into the playoffs by taking it up a notch at the right time
@uosɹədəɔıu sǝɹpɐd ʎɹəʌ™ I called the lineup mediocre not the pitching
@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.
@AudioOutlaw @Nineteen84 why's that? this is the first right hander he's faced
1 week, 2 days ago on Mariners @ Dodgers April 15, 2015: Civil Rights Game
Yay Paco not a loogy for one night
Thanks robbie! #tootblan
@InsideThePark looked a lot closer at full speed, I was wondering. Nice grab.
1 week, 3 days ago on Dodgers 6, Mariners 5: Thank you, Howie Kendrick
Alright its pushing 3 a.m. out this way I'm out. Too amped after another walkoff. Night y'all
@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"
@just Paul If he can show a strong platoon split at least he might be movable
@I Digesti @Nineteen84 all about dat bench
@MScottEiland @SabrDodgers He really wasn't performing much until this series
@Tommy D @SabrDodgers My Mariner fan buddy is just happy to get to listen to Vin
@Tommy D I think I saw him on a milk carton
@MScottEiland @Nineteen84 Yeah the depth is great.
@SabrDodgers @Nineteen84 "grit"
Gotta love a broken bat walk-off
Me at gametime: "Crap I left Guerrero in my fantasy lineup and he's not playing" Me later: "That'll do pig"
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
@moneynow27 na you're right, he was very good. the few mistakes he made were capitalized on, but he showed an ability to settle down
1 week, 4 days ago on Alex Guerrero is a strong bench piece for Dodgers, not full-time starter
@ak825 @Nineteen84 I'll withhold judgement on his defense until we actually see him tested
@TellMyWifeISaidGoodbye @Nineteen84 Mixing in Guerrero from time to time should hopefully help keep Uribe healthy
@ak825 @Nineteen84 Oh yeah I'd like to see him mixed in, with Turner being the utility piece that can play multiple spots
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.
@jWerthfan I'll like this now, might be my only chance this season
1 week, 4 days ago on Mariners @ Dodgers April 13, 2015: Entirely Too Excited For Scott Van Slyke
@somewhat dodger nicetato I look like a genius drafting him in my NL only league. took a flyer on my last pick. I'll try to remember this if I'm dropping him in 2 weeks.
@Drywall I like hypotheticals
@Drywall @Nineteen84 ugh. didn't know. lets say the game went 15 innings, would they have dipped into AA?
now we don't have to kill a guy for instinctively avoiding a pitch
Still think they should call up a starter tomorrow
FEED ME MORE STARTS
@InsideThePark that would be the unforgivable part, not leaving them loaded necessarily
walk off = more starts
at least not a double play
@jWerthfan @Nineteen84 K better than DP
please just dont hit a ground ball
