    The guy just gets better and better, it's amazing to watch. Even as recent as this year when he just decided to mess around with arm angles while on the DL, as if hitters don't have enough to worry about.

    I'd look for him to work the changeup in more as he loses some velocity on his fastball.

    Love how some of the young guys (JDL, Urias and Stewart) all utilize the changeup.

    He pumped up the entire dugout. I heard him scream "LET'S GO" and slammed almost everyone there with a high five or arm bash.

    I think it really made a difference. Might have even inspired Kershaw to ask to pitch in the 9th.

    One thing I won't miss is the Marlins fan with seats right behind home plate in Washington.

    Dusty Baker throws shade at Dodgers after Game 5 loss
    by Larry Brown | Yardbarker — 4 hours ago

    Dusty Baker was on the losing side of one of the most exciting postseason games in recent memory, and the man wasn't exactly magnanimous after the defeat.

    Following his Washington Nationals' 4-3 Game 5 loss to the Dodgers, Baker didn't strictly applaud his opponents and the gutsy maneuvering of opposing manager Dave Roberts. Instead, he pointed out the downside to Roberts' moves.

    J.P. Hoornstra✔@jphoornstra
    Dusty Baker: "I’d be interested to see -- they won the war -- but
    the effects of Jansen and Kershaw when they get to Chicago."
    9:58 PM - 13 Oct 2016

    Sour grapes, Dusty? We know he's never been shy to speak his mind, but that remark is still a surprise.

    Roberts' pitching staff may be overworked at this point, but at least his team is moving on to the NLCS rather than going home. After all, winning the series is the objective, not making sure your staff is well rested and set up for games they're not going to play.

    Roberts is being lauded for his creativity with managing the Dodgers in the decisive game. He pulled his starter in the third; went to his setup man that inning; used a 20-year-old in relief; put his closer in for the 7th; and then used his ace, Clayton Kershaw, on short rest in the ninth. Baker says that managing in that manner, which is going against the proverbial "book," is not something he'll be doing any time soon.

    J.P. Hoornstra✔@jphoornstra
    I asked Baker if the Dodgers' use of Jansen tonight could turn
    into a trend: "It’s not a trend that I’d like to be a part of anytime."
    10:04 PM - 13 Oct 2016

    Maybe it's Baker's failure to adapt that's preventing the Nats from going further. The team still has yet to win a playoff series.​

    What is Dusty talking about? This "trend" has been around for 100 years. He's hilarious.

    I was told exactly the opposite, and that it made her feel all gooey inside...so I carry around a box so I don't run out.

    Disgusting because he chews and gnaws at it. It's not even like he's using it to actually pick his teeth.

    But dangerous because have you actually watch what he does with it? He often swallows the whole thing in his mouth when he places like a BP call, swirls it around and then sticks it out again.

    One day he is going to freakin swallow that thing. Yes, that is dangerous for him. Not the general public who tend to use them the regular way.

    Expect Dusty to be fired. If not then expect Bryce Harper to sign with the Dodgers and play for a coach who manages in a way that makes baseball fun again.
    What people dont understand about the book is that it was written by people who figured out what was best for their time.
    All 'books' are like that.
    And the true sense of 'doing it by the book' is to take the book as inspiration and then figuring out what works best in your specific time, place, and application.
    That is the real 'by the book'.
    Slavishly following the book is what lazy unimaginative curmudgeons do because they cant contribute to the new book.
    Because doing it by the book entails writing the book... the new book.
    Which is why fundamentalists nearly always lose. They dont get that they are the villains in the book.
    Thats because for all the hand wringing about the book its clear that they never really understood the book.
    Much less cared about the book.
    Just cared about paying lip service to the book for their own selfish reasons.

    No, jeez you guys are getting way too safe and sane.
    I used to do that all the time as well. I dont know why, its probably a good stretch for the jaw or something.
    I probably wouldnt do it on TV all the time though.
    Its not dangerous though.
    Maybe you shouldnt drive a car. Thats the most dangerous thing you can do.
