Discussion in 'Los Angeles DODGERS' started by irish, Jun 5, 2016.
Lol Backhanded by Rosenthal, stylin and profilin
LAD 3.5 back
I like to think the recent sweep earned the Dodgers that "k" in their logo. Good job, boys.
The K is for Joc, bruh.
But no I was shocked irish did that to our name. Wtf???
So after that pitiful Cubs series where we lost ground, we actually end the week up a game. Not bad.
Pence down. Giants playing decent teams. We play the Braves and Reds
The plan is working
Suicide watch for the weekend series in SF though.
The sample size for Trayce is growing.
CHI in 2015 - 135 plate appearances, .295/.363/.533, .896 OPS, 5 HRs, 26 strikeouts, 13 walks, 33 hits
LAD in 2016 - 138 plate appearances, .279/.362/.566, .928 OPS, 9 HRs, 30 strikeouts, 16 walks, 34 hits
wRC+ was 144 last year with CHI and it was 151 as of yesterday for LAD, subject to change tomorrow.
Deals have been made of Trayce's ability to hit RHP,
2015 vs. RHP - 77 plate appearances, .269/.364/.448, .811 OPS, 3 HRs, 17 strikouts, 10 walks, 18 hits
2016 vs. RHP - 88 plate appearances, .273/.364/.571, .935 OPS, 6 HRs, 18 strikeouts, 11 walks, 21 hits
Now, for Montas who's impressed @ AA/AAA thus far in his rehab.
5 games, 8 innings, 31 batters faced, 1.12ERA, 6 hits, 1 HR, 1 ER, 2 walks, 12 Ks
Sometimes plan B is the best plan.
GOING BOLD WITH ANOTHER SWEEP PREDICTION
Hoping Bolsinger/Urías can give us some good starts. That'll be huge for this series if we want a shot at sweeping.
Bummed about the pitching matchup tomorrow. And throughout the series, honestly. The offense needs to show up.
License Plate giveaway tomorrow. So I'm sure we'll get at least 20k.
agree on the offense
hopefully yesterday was a sign of things to come and not just an aberration
our starters need to go 5-6 innings and hold the rocks to 2-3 runs (or less)
have a feeling urias might fare better in front of the hometown fans, especially if a lot of mexican fans show up to support him
If Bolsinger has a 3rd straight outing where he only gives up a couple runs over 5 innings we should start seeing some respeck on the man's name.
Definitely time to score some runs and give him a lead to work with
his outings have been somewhat misleading too
the last three times he's given up a hr and the lead iirc
makes it look worse than it is
but his era is around 4 over that time
not great, but certainly good enough if the offense does their job
And pitching on the same staff as the baseball god himself doesn't help either
If Bolsinger pitched for the Cubs he'd be 5-0 right now.
Not ripping Bolsinger. He does his job. Just prefer watching someone else. Sucks that Wood (no homo) was starting to pitch so well and got hurt.
Adding to Trayce's numbers, forgot these,
With CHI in 2015 - .341 BABIP
With LAD in 2016 - .301 BABIP
.301 obviously more sustainable, it was .293 before yesterday's game.
The one area I see where he truly needs to improve offensively is on the road,
CHI/away 2015 - 68 plate appearances, .206/.265/.397, .662 OPS, 15 strikeouts, 5 walks
LAD/away 2016 - 70 plate appearances, .219/.286/.438, .723 OPS, 17 strikeouts, 6 walks
Gotta do better here, @SFG later this week would be a start, wash the road sins away
Man's given up 12 hits and K'd 14 so far, he's doin just fine, I enjoy watching him K guys with that silly off-speed stuff Lol
He should add a knuckler one day
that would be his heater lol
Meh, only reason the Cubs are as good as they are is because they are getting hopefully unsustainable production from all 5 starters.
