    The stat about the Mets makes things even worse, no? They came into the playoffs cold as hell after being no hit and getting beat up by the Phillies and Nats. We couldn't have asked for a better draw...the Central teams seemed to be in a class of their own and the AL teams were definitely too strong. Mets were one of the few teams I felt like we could beat and we went 1-2 at home after posting a 55-26 reg season record at home.

    I think it'd be significant to have someone that every time they're up people are afraid they'll homer. That Joey Bats/Cespedes type. Haven't had that since prime Kemp.

    Other than the dick move calling out of my boy Doyer...I kind of agree with the OP's post.

    Fuck these nerds/GMs/whatever the fuck they are. Their moves sucked ass, and their lack of moves at the deadline knowing we'd need a 3rd starter sucked even more.

    I'm not sure why he was in the starting lineup, I had him written off for the season post ASG. desperately needs to rework his swing and approach.

    You probably haven't read my posts all year and are going off a few things, probably too hard for you to read for a lengthy period of time. You really think I'm the only one who liked these moves? And you really wanna go through each and every one?

    You probably hate Zaidi/Friedman and anyone who likes what they do cause they're labeled as smart, and smart people frighten you, so you have to be condescending and pounce on any opportunity to point out any mistakes in hindsight.

    You're a pathetic Dodgers fan. Not a Dodgers fan. I don't think someone is a fan if they fucking enjoy that team failing just to pound there chest and cause they're SO angry someone thinks smart people are doing good things. A lot of fans on here are negative but they all want the team to win.

    The fuck do you know about baseball, smart ass? Never saw a good post from you on an alternative.

    And to take your childish analysis, what are Heaney/Gordon/Kemp doing right now? Watching the playoffs from home cause not like they were some fucking amazing players to take there team far. Oh, and what did Kemp and Gordon do when they were here? Not win a World Series. Cause it's more than that.

    I'm not even gonna bother going into deep analysis about the trades. Judging by your analysis of the trades, it's not worth it.

    I'm glad at least someone on here got enjoyment from the Dodgers losing though.

    He needs a real hitting coach and not a lifetime .260 hitter who juiced his way to 500 HR's

    We've had such different style teams since '08 that I don't even know what to do, cause every time I think the different one will do the trick.

    Wasted a year where we might not see a 1-2 punch do that again, not to mention who knows how long we could expect Adrian/Turner/Ethier to do good.

    Any thoughts on who we'd go after as hitting coach assuming they fire McGwire?

    Mickey said he wants to work with JoK. Hopefully they let him.

    Meh Friedman did some good and bad. At least we're set up to be good going forward. Friedman is cool.

    This. Time to cut Mcgwire loose....what exactly has he done for our hitters? Joc needs to fix his swing, but despite his flaws, he was able to get on base tonight and watch the offense fail to bring him in.

    it was a big swing from the start and you just knew it had holes
    once exposed the entire league exploited it
    hopefully an off season of working on the adjustment will be enough
    that swing has worked for him an awful long time and got him to the show
    has to be amazingly hard to relearn your stroke at this level
    going to have to happen or he's going to become one of those journeyman guys

    Well he needs to change everything about hitting. Which is scary but we'll see...
