    Didn't mind Kelly, until now.

    Pollock was the head scratcher. We could have had Verdugo in this role the whole time. Now we have to worry how the team handles the lineup once he gets back.

    Pollock and kelly wanted to be dodgers.

    Funny how we didn't need or cleverly didn't sign either of these two upper echelon pitchers, how either, or each at different times, may contribute heavily to defeat for us by their hands. Sort of like that pos Kellly in the WS.
    Entirely possible we will have to go through both the Cubs and/or Braves in the post. Indeed.
    If we get there of course.

    As we all say when trades are discussed a spec is only a spec so there was no guarantee that Alex would have this success so I'm not angry per se. Obviously having Pollock out doesn't help but let's see what happens when he comes back. I personally don't believe Joc will maintain this good play so I expect to see Alex get as much playing time as humanly possible, we'll see, Kelly is the head scratcher for me.

    • “I think [the offense is] a different animal than last year,” Muncy said. “Last year, we relied pretty heavily on the home run, and this year, we’re able to produce runs in a different manner. And that’s making us a more complete team and a more dangerous team.”
    have to wonder if this was before, during or after his 7 consecutive k's...

    removed a week from today (June 12) "When that happens I think
    stuff will start to move pretty quick."

    In the late 90s, I posted to the Yahoo (aka Yahell) boards. I knew a nightclub owner in Toronto who told me so really horrifying scuttlebutt on Mondesi after he was signed there. He relayed accounts of Raul doing blow, punching waiters, drinking until puking on the dancefloor, and constantly asking, "Do you know who I am?!?!" Yahoo posters accused me of "making stuff up..." Nothing like vindication twenty years down the line, bitches....
