    And a guy who should not be playing CF on a team when there are four who play it better.

    In case anybody was wondering, Jansen isn't using his balls anymore. Maybe somebody else out there could use them, just so long as they don't need them to do anything...

    I sincerely hope Kenley Jansen tore his UCL and will be out for the rest of his career. That way the organization will be forced to move on from his overrated fat ass

    Good. Maybe his career is over. No problem.

    Kelly for closer. Jansen can go back to whatever think tank for polyglots he claims he would have done if baseball wasn't his career.

    This FO better wake up quick. These are the games that have been killing us in the post season. Why is it so hard to understand our needs?

    Jansen looks like he needs an IL stint but it's not gonna lead to him missing bats more often
    Pollock looks like he needs to be a corner outfielder.

    Pollock is a DH at best.

    If this doesn't precipitate a move or moves of huge proportions by the FO, then once again we'll wear the fucking bridesmaids dresses as always...and we'll, or they, will flat out deserve it again.

    This stubbornness will lead us to another October failure.

    Polly has to play center field because they signed him to play center field, and Kenley has to be the "closer" because he says so.

    It's not about what's best for the team.

    In 2017, it was totally the players' fault. This year, it's ownership's fault. Because they have advance notice of Kershaw and Kenley's declines. But will do nothing about it.

    And it is a shame, because the rest of the team is historically good

    Pollock can go fuck himself. Motherfucker should've laid out for Harper's hit and he would've caught it and there is absolutely no reason for that pop up not to be caught. He cost us the game.

    I would seriously be relieved if he is injured for the rest of the year. It is the only way we rid ourselves of him. Dave, the F.O. and the media will continue to champion Kenley as long as he is physically able.

    Not going after Kimbrel is a failure of epic proportions. Now we have to use prospect capital to trade for 3+ arms which all need to be damn near elite!

    Pollock should've caught both of those fucking balls

    Verdugo saved Kenley's ass in center field back at Dodger Stadium a few weeks ago. He needs to be there.

    This FO acquires a guy who can get hurt walking to the bathroom, and they expect him to play all out?

    We need insurance in the form of heavy lights out BP and closer. The Kenley era is over. Don't they see?

    Why is it so hard to see.

    Btw, while we're bitching big time...it didn't end on Turner's watch, but without Jansen's putrid attempt a closing, imo, it's on Turner and his error with that fucking annoying lollipop he throws to first.
    I always hated those throws, and they are growing in their inaccuracy more and more.

    short of wanting his career to be over i'd say it would at least be good if he could find some humility
    totally agree giving the ball to Kelly in his absence (assuming of course)
    that can only be a good thing in the long run
