have at it bkitches
Don't trust Maeda-san on the road. Not as bad as a pitcher at DS.
Such a drop off after Kershaw. I'm still not convinced about our SP going into the playoffs.
Alex Wood doesn't like this.
Makes more sense TBH
You know what I meant. Kershaw....then Maeda?
Nice to know this team could drop 11 straight and still likely be in first ...
Now watch me eat this post with a huge side of shit sandwich, right?
What I said has little to do with your post. Your post just made it convenient. Anyways to your point, maeda isn't going to start in the playoffs most likely and I'm not really sure why you are uncomfortable about our SP at this point
wood has been incredible
hill appears to be getting better and better each outing
and kersh is kersh
mehcarthy is probably the de facto #4 at this point
if the playoffs started today, maeda/ryu might not even make the lds roster
Except for in the post season.
Personally, this rotation, Kershaw included, is gonna have to win me over in the post season.
And there's nothing wrong with that.
Who gets crowned before they earn it?
but have to admit... i have more optimism than in years past
Please, didn't mean to raise a sh*t storm.
Last year we had Kershaw and Hill and even Urias, and it wasn't enough against the Cubs. And barely enough against the Nats but for a heroic effort from Jansen and Kershaw in relief.
I hope we are not in the same situation. Yes, Kershaw is god, Wood is having a career season, and Hill is.....well.....Hill. But is this better than Kershaw, Greinke, and Ryu when he was still effective?
All I'm saying is that is getting another big SP such a bad thing for this team? I think if there was ever a time, this is the year to go all out for the WS.
Not staying this way just this series.
That's true and great points but, I've always felt that starting pitching has always ended up fine. This year the big difference between previous years is the offense. We have 3 superstar level hitters, and the Taylor, Puig, Joc, Grandal and Forsythe are all average at worst and actually damn good hitters.
Enrique, Taylor, Forsythe, and Barnes create powerful platoons against lefties and Seager/Turner aren't fucking up against them this year.
Once we get new relievers, I truly think there's little to no holes on the team
I got your meaning. And I feel you (no homo, no Vic the Brick). Any Dodger fan above 30, or anyone following them faithfully the last decade plus has a certain right to be gun shy of regular season success as a yardstick for the postseason.
As morose as I can be about my team, I like our chances as much as I have since 1977 and 1978. yeah, I know we lost those two World Series, but everyone here would take those teams in 2017-2018 every damn time. I think this team is playing better than those teams did at their high point. And those Yankee teams we played then ... I say they were far better than any AL team we might face this season. So, for what that's worth ...
btw you shouldn't be pressing on these things at 2am lol
get some sleep
oh and some jerk gave me the news
no game today
Haha....I know. Combination of Dodger anxiety and a job that can often suck.

Turner getting it done
3B Justin Turner is arguably the Dodgers' most productive player and should qualify for the batting title after the next game. Turner's batting average is 24 points higher than the current leader (José Altuve, .350) and his on-base percentage is 35 points higher than current leaders (Bryce Harper and Aaron Judge, .434).
