    It could be anyone, of course, who ultimately and traditionally breaks our hearts...many have fit the bill over the years.
    But as far as pitching, I see Kenley, Kelly, and Wood leading that darkest of packs.
    Treinen I don't know about truthfully, but he does have better stuff more often than the other four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. If you throw a good pitch, and the batter hits it, then "hats off to him" as they say.
    But it's sad that with such a good team, I (we?) are preparing ourselves for the epic fail.
    I guess it comes with being a Dodger fan for years.
    I guess it comes with what the truth has been...

    I wonder if that thought even grazed Doc's thought processes at all...even remotely...probably not. He's such a rah- rah, back slapping stunada, that those alternatives never even materialized one iota.
    Maybe there's no room in there.

    Something of note:
    The A's moved into the #2 seed spot with yesterday's win. It's looking like the #2 seed in the AL will open the playoffs against Cleveland whereas the #3 seed will open against Houston. I don't know how much the A's are into controlling their own destiny but I would think they'd rather face the Astros, who they have handled easily this season, than Bieber and the Indians. With the White Sox and Twins fighting for the AL Central, the A's could easily slip back down to 3rd with a losing streak to finish the season.

    If you like conspiracies, look for the Dodgers to have an oddly easy win tonight.

    Since the Grisham game Belli has a .393/.500/.714 slash line with 2 HR in 8 Games. Muncy's 2 HR's in the last 2 games is a great sign as well. Both these guys getting going now would be unquestionably huge, especially with the levels that Smith, Seager, Betts and Taylor have been playing at. With Pollock and Turner being merely just steady bats, that leaves the DH as the only issue. Rios and Pederson need lots of AB's in the final games to determine who that role should belong to.

    I think they were doing that in case of a short outing from someone else and then they are needed to come in early to knock out multiple innings. Then go to a bullpen game where they were. This totally relies on score, imo as they would only want to bring these guys in if it's close or the Dodgers are up and they want to seal the deal. They very well could go Kershaw/May G1, Buehler/Urias G2, Gonsolin G3 and have a loaded/rested bullpen. Yes this changes in the next round, but if they have the chance to end things in 3, they may look to do that and adjust if they have to.

    I knew the Dodger schedule was soft, but I didn't realize the only two teams they've played currently above .500 are the Pads and the A's.

    Not sure how that plays past the first round of the playoffs.

    This whole season is a goat rodeo, a pig circus, an utter joke. Any hope that normalcy or expectations along the lines of traditional baseball outcomes might be realized went out the window as soon as the Covid lock down set in.

    Any team that wins it all this year gets an asterisk. Guaranteed.

    You might be right about that asterisk, but I'm not so sure.

    Smith and Lux are not great at all running the bases.

    They’re actually hot rn. Maybe we should lose to them in hopes the Rangers can knock the Astr*s out of the playoffs

    Maybe the asterisk might mean: "more difficult than the regular season by far because of multilevel fucking insanity. And a plague"....
