Discussion in 'Los Angeles DODGERS' started by irish, Sep 29, 2019.
was any other team actually in on him?
How has Jim Hill remained a sportscaster for so long?
He is horseshit
Those 2 at the very of the lineup followed by Turner @ 3 and Muncy @ 4, Fuggit, Harper leading off
Been hoping for this for years. For him to finally have one postseason where he keeps it together, or hell, one postseason where he gets lucky (I would've taken warning track fly balls). But the reality is we are well past any point of redemption. What is he even physically capable of at this point? A LOOGY out? A poor man's Kolarek? He should hold it together for 2 years to eat innings and throw strikes, but I'm not sure he'll ever be on a postseason roster again without it being charity for his past.
And it looked like he was going to do that in 2017 with his amazing game 1 start to kick off the WS.
His stuff has diminished so much and it's not even just choking at this point...he's not that good.
You could say the same of Mike Stanton, and we gave him the finger.
Lol @BlueMouse black shades for the funeral, huh
you mean that 5o year old LH pitcher?
LOL yes. Was always a big fan of the Dodgers. Instead he had to settle for 3 WS rings with the Yankees.
It's beginning to sound like the Kershaw in the 8th inning was not a last minute deviation by Dave from the tested formula of Kenta, Kolerek and 1 inning Kelly/Kenley.
It was likely planned.
If so, the Front Office may have been involved in the process.
I'm a big F.O. supporter, but they are not beyond reproach.
Best F.O. we have had in decades? Sure. No doubt.
But I just cannot get myself to call them the smartest in baseball when they are involved in horseshit decisions like this and have been outsmarted by their direct competition.
Not to mention the shit FA signings.
Andrew needs to hire a general manager, fire Dave, and ownership needs to stop bowing to the luxury tax.
I can rattle off a dozens of reasons why this F.O. is a good one...
...and if Kenley, Kershaw, Seager, and Bellinger do their job in 2017, we aren't even having this discussion.
I get that argument and I have made it. But this is a results driven game.
Gotta be held accountable.
And that fucked us over royally. They want him to be the hero. But sooner or later somebody's gotta realize he should be the fourth option on this staff and not an option at all coming out of the bullpen.
fuck this front office
i don’t care how good they are in some areas (and they are)
they have failed to achieve their primary goal since they took over
worse, after getting so close the past two years they failed to address/improve areas of weakness
want to pass on harper, machado, et al? fine
but don’t try to placate us with a fucken scrub like pollock
that was a senseless signing before he ever took the field, and his performance (lack thereof) surprised no one
nice sentimental touch they extended kersh, but real teams don’t let emotions play a role
i rip orel as much as anyone here, but in a game that matters i would take prime orel (homo) over prime kershaw every time
but i digress...
fuck this front office
^ and fuck roberts too
^ and friedman for being so smug thinking he didn’t need a gm
This is really sad
Makes me sick that we have come to this point
That's why my only jerseys are a Jackie and a Koufax...
There is no chance in hell that was the plan and Roberts said as much. He left Kersh and Kelly in there based on his gut, same thing with Buehler. If the FO comes out and says they had gameplaned it that way, it is nothing more than them protecting him and all plans are to bring him back. No, analytics would have told you a million times over to get him out of there. That was all Roberts.
