    Thinking about the Marlins, we failed to make deals for Stanton, Yelich, Ozuna and Realmuto off the top of my head. Irritating. We probably did not want Stanton cuz luxury tax, but still. They asked for Bellinger for Realmuto. Crazy

    As of this point, I have a hard time seeing the Dodgers making any additions in the field at the deadline. Catching is a black hole right now and the only position that could use an upgrade is 2B. With the clubs luck of 2B acquisitions over the years, they may decide to stay in house. Keep an eye on Tulsa, Gavin Lux is crushing the ball again and is probably about due for a promotion. The Dodgers could have another star youngster on the way.

    How much time would Lux need in AAA before being deemed ready to take over 2B? And would he still get big league innings at SS to stay sharp?
    How does he look against LHP?

    It is hard to tell these days and now that AAA is using the same ball as MLB, hitters are putting up inflated numbers. I think 200 PA is ideal, especially with his only brief time at the upper levels thus far. I don't think he see's much if any time at SS with the big club since Taylor and Hernandez are still here. He has a SUPER SSS against LHP'ing this year, but he has over an 1.000 OPS in 32 PA's this season. Was not outstanding against them last year and has already matched his career HR totals against them (2). Reports sort of expected him to take a minor step back since his numbers were fairly gaudy in his breakout 2018. All he has done is to put up even better numbers at a higher level. Feelings were if he just stayed on par with last season, he would likely leap into the upper tier of top prospects.

    Another homer and two more doubles today.
    He should be in OKC tomorrow. LA by August if Kikè keeps ops’ing at or under .700.

    More pontificating from Dusty
    ------------------
    "....What’s weird to me is that law enforcement sources can make a statement like “the case is ‘weak'” if it, like MLB, hasn’t even seen the video yet. I guess they’re going off statements from Urias and his girlfriend — both of whom are reportedly cooperating with law enforcement.

    The video will likely come out eventually, but until then, all we know what happened is what we’ve been told. It’s a tough situation for the Dodgers and the fan base. I’m not going to try to tell anyone how to fan. I just know there’s a taint surrounding Urias now, even if he didn’t “intend to injure” his girlfriend in the incident.

    I’m not in the business of ranking or determining different degrees of domestic violence/battery. This situation described above is not as severe as some other reports we’ve heard in the past with other athletes in other sports, but it’s still not OK. The fact that he, on some level, put his hands on her in an attempt to restrain her should not have happened. And even if there was no intent to injure her, she still ended up on the ground, potentially as a result of him putting his hands on her.

    For now, Urias is back with the team. He’s probably going to pitch this weekend in Pittsburgh. I’m not sure how to feel about it. I’m not sure what to do.

    Maybe he’ll be cleared of any legal wrongdoing. Maybe he won’t. Until the investigation is finished or progresses, all we can do is wait...."

    If you or someone you know needs help, the National Domestic Violence Hotline can be reached at 1-800-799-7233 or by visiting this website.

    nope
    no taint on urias
    peoples feelings does not equal truth
    putting your hands on a woman is not the same thing as putting your hands on a woman
    one is an objective fact that can mean many innocent things while the other is a meme that means one thing, a fist
    if you mean the meme let me assure you that he did not punch the woman, he did not 'put hands' on her
    if you are saying that he is guilty of whatever for simply touching her with his hands... no, that is retarded
    specially if you haven't seen the video

    Hehe, he said "taint."

    Just another hack trying to stir the pot, which increases views and helps him keep his job. He's saying we shouldn't speculate until we know all the facts, but read between his lines and he's already strung Urias up. I say there's just as good a chance that she stumbled and he was trying to catch her, than her ending up on the ground due to ill intent.

    Remember when Dusty weighed in on the Roberto Osuna domestic violence scenario? Or when he checked in on the account of Aroldis Chapman discharging a pistol next to his wife's head a few years ago? Because what he did was ... he defended Aroldis four years ago ... http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/...is-chapman-backs-mlb-domestic-violence-policy ...

    So, Dusty... GFY. You did cocaine in the Dodger clubhouse on Lasorda's watch, covered up for Steve Howe because he was selling some to you, and were jettisoned from the organization accordingly, and have talked shit about the Blue since then. You are mini-Joe Morgan of Dodger hate for hate's sake. STFU, you once upon a time player who mattered, manager who sucks now. Eff off, Dusty, you toothpick chewing prick.

    While I appreciate this take... Just to make sure I'm not losing my mind, we were talking about Dustin (Dusty?) Nosler, right? Did Baker weigh in on Urias, too?

    Ok. My mistake. I don't read Nosler anymore, so guess I went off the rails on that.

    Sorry, brohim. I'm back on the lithium asap.

    I thought you were referencing Dusty Baker as a joke. Didn't realize you were sincere.
    Baker >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Nosler

    Dodgers bullpen ERA is 4.62.
    It’s not even just guys not performing, it’s who the fuck do you ever trust?
