    They'll add a couple. They usually do. And then Kersh will either blow pivotal games so badly that they'll be useless, or Roberts will burn through them by the 2nd or 3rd inning. Think we know how this works by now

    don't get how Kelly "lost" it
    he gave up a hit to a guy making 330m, a ground ball and a slap hit on an outside pitch
    of course everyone wants more but if caleb doesn't put two on to start the inning theres a couple of hits and a run scores
    i'm fine w how he performed and have confidence he's turning it around
    yes he has a past but he's also electric and i'll take my chances w him over just about everyone else in that bp atm
    essential to any chance we have

    Tip your hat to Hoskins for hitting a good pitch.

    Kelly was extremely lucky Harper didn't hit that hanging piece of shit 450 ft instead of a line drive single.

    That said, the current Kelly is starting to resemble the guy they faced in the Series.

    I'd prefer to see Beaty in Joc's place in the OF for the short term and possibly for the long term if he performs.

    At the very least this hot streak possibly makes Beaty an attractive trade piece.

    Yes, play the hot hand. Why does that make so much sense to us and yet Roberts can't see it? I'm telling you, he's too nice to be a great manager. Doesn't want to upset the apple cart.

    On a related topic, Joc is now 3 for 18 (.167) since the HR Derby. I've yet to see a Dodger player participate in it and not have his swing screwed up afterwards. Maybe America was entertained by Pederson's fine showing. Me, I'd gladly trade that in for two more hits (5 for 18) - something that was attainable if he spent the break in a batting cage working on mechanics instead of trying to jack every pitch he saw.

    Just for shits and giggles, I looked up the only other two guys that I know were in the Derby. Wanna know how they've done since?

    Alonso: 2 for 19 (.105)
    Vlad Jr: 3 for 21 (.143)

    By those comparisons, Joc is killing it!

    Seriously, that thing should be axed, or at least permanently boycotted by the Dodgers.

    But Joc was utter trash basically the whole month of June, before the HR Derby. However, certainly don't think the Derby helps a guy that struggles with consistency.

    That being said, Joc usually does his share of good in the postseason. I'd just bat him 8th in the order. Don't give a rat's ass about him being an all-star

    Thinking about whether I have less respect for Neris or Jansen. It's close.

    At least Neris showed he has some fire. All Jansen wants to do is pull his shirt away from his shoulder and prance in a circle around the mound after a strike out while thinking about shoe shopping on QVC.... That, or be a pouty cKunt when he doesn't get his way.

    Too bad that come-backer didn't shatter his foot!

    Showing fire or a flaming asshole? The latter, I believe. Gutless piece of shit. You don't throw behind someone that high.

    That said, Jansen is a twat.

    I agree, but I'd rather trade Joc.

    Uh...this is how he lost it...the first two runs were shitbag Fergeson's responsibility...so the tie to a 5-5 score is on him.Floro didn't contribute to any men on base.
    Kelly came in and immediately gave the Phillies the lead, which stood up. Mystery solved...that's how he he shit the bed.
    And really, using the hit to a guy making 330 million...is that a criteria for you? What about a guy who doesn't pitch that much at all ( too afraid to use him earlier) making 25 million? Giving up clutch hits to someone is.justified because of big salary? Worse argument ever.
    He might be the only guy that we have as an alternative, I agree.
    But "dependable" ? Pretty funny.
    Yes, good stuff indeed. I agree.
    So do the broadcasters, our FO, Kelly's supporters, etc.
    Brett Tomko had good stuff, too.
    We'll see how it turns out...but I fully expect Jansen out there next save situation barring a complete LAD 180° turn around from previous approach.

    Yep. Neris EASILY could have achieved the proper end by plunking Freese in his ass with a 90 mph pitch. Instead, he went red-ass and might've domed Freese. Total puss move.

    I was thinking more of when he yelled FU than the bean ball. People (like Kelly) throw at us and we remain "Gentlemany" too often. This team needs to earn it's swagger before it takes the next step and there's nothing wrong with a little FU attitude.

    Jansen is another perfect example... He thinks his shoes and his lame AF Kenleyfornia sign scare the other teams, and they don't. A little chin music coming from that apathetic fuck would impress me about now.

    Haven't been on this thread during the series but what struck me was that we made 2 ERRORS EACH game!!! What the hell.

    When Lux and Smith come up later this year, the defense needs to settle in.

    Lux 2B
    Bellinger RF
    Muncy 1B (No 2B unless in a pinch)
    Turner 3B
    Seager SS
    Pollock/Joc LF (No 1B for Joc. No CF for Pollock. No exceptions.)
    Verdugo CF
    Smith C

    i guess nothing less than perfection will do
    we need some better arms no question but the tone was set by caleb
    and floro gave up the ground ball single (no shift) so he came into a bad situation
    pitcher is going to throw different w inherited runners in a tight game
    you saw a ball that might have gone out from harper and i saw a fly ball single
    the guy is paid as one of the best and he did his job
    the slap ball to right was basically a defensive swing on a good pitch and hats off to him
    its a war of attrition when it comes to bullpens anyway
    name one team thats satisfied w their bp at this time
    Kelly would have a spot on any team no question
    i'm not defending him and truly dislike his history w us
    and bombko had great stuff?
    i don't remember cause it seemed to be going over the wall most of the time
    but you're right that barring injury jansen is likely going to be closer all the way for no apparent reason other than his ego and davey not wanting to upset him
    i'm thinking for us to have any chance Joe needs to be there in high leverage situations
    not always going to be perfect but imo he didn't fuck that game up

    I like this. Might prefer Bellinger in CF but idk. Also hope they start giving Lux some reps at 2B in the minors starting in like mid-August

    Also, we’ve constantly seen our rookies flail out by October so it’ll be interesting how Verdugo handles a full season and if Pollock is doing better than him by then. Verdugos hit skills would be amazing in the playoffs but we’ve been burnt by these rookies before...
