    I feel like in high leverage situations, both Alexander and Floro tend to leave the ball up a lot more.

    LOL thats exactly what happened.

    I'll take this as a good loss: Show the front office that Yimi/Floro/Alexander aren't nearly good enough

    This bullpen is so fucking dogshit.
    How long do we wait to try and address the issue?

    LOL, they have been showing that all season. Floro had a BS low ERA that hid his inherited run shittiness. The FO continuing to trot Yimi FUCKING Garcia is god damned catastrophe.

    SO we have one really good reliever...Urias...who is really a starter.
    And Kenley, who is nowhere near what he was 2 years ago. And even then he choked.
    Impossible to win the WS with this BP. Impossible
    They will win 95-105 games and still get swept in the WS

    Remember when Robots blew game 4 by putting Alexander in?
    Where does the FO find these clowns?

    Nice of Roberts to limit them to one batter each so that nobody's ERA gets hurt too badly. That Dave - he's a real player's manager.

    Baez is the guy you trust there. Floro is dogshit with men on base. He's best pitching a clean inning where he can get his 123.

    The Dodgers bullpen was 22nd in MLB coming into today.
    The F.O. has to own that.

    Will SportsNet LA 0r AM570 ever have Friedman on and just say, "The bullpen ERA is 4.80 and in the bottom 10 in all of MLB. Can you beat an American League super team in the World Series with this staff? If not, will you address it? Are there any payroll restrictions or untouchable prospects that will prevent that from happening?"

    Yeah, you'll get a BS answer, but at least ask the question instead of sucking the team off all day.

    Thank goodness for the starting pitching, outfield defense, and offense.

    Nice hero at bats, Joc and JT.

    No sac fly, no weak grounder to chip away. Whiff.

    Everyone except Beatty went up there trying to hit a 2 or 3 run bomb

    "We love Smitty. What he did, coming up as a rook and getting two knocks was impressive. But for us...It's just one of those things where...(long pause)...we like Russy getting some ABs."

    Coming into the game tonight:
    Scott Alexander with RISP against had a 1.420 OPS in 16 PA's and a 1.286 OPS in High Leverage situations also in 16 PA's, that number has gone up.
    Dylan Floro with RISP has an .868 in 26 PA, but at least had a high leverage number of only .669... though in "Late/Close" situations the number balloons to 1.012 in 36 PA's.
    Not even going to waste my time with the dumpster fires of Yimi Garcia and Joe Kelly.... Get this bullpen some fucking help! We need fire stoppers and nobody appears capable of that.

    Doubt the front office cares about high leverage, sadly. They will try to put together a group of guys with decent ERAs and attribute their inevitable failures to the "crapshoot" nature of the playoffs.

    Up 7 games, don't hold your breath. VERY worrisome of course but who is pushing us at this time to to go crazy with desperation.
