    The Rockies have DFA'd LHP Mike Dunn. The lefty has been an absolute disaster since signing a 3 year contract with the Rockies going into the 2017 season. With that said.... this is one of those first pieces that the club should pursue as a second LOOGY and cheap experiment going into the deadline. Why? Well while being a catastrophe at Coors, he has been pretty damn good out of that park. SSS is all over this, but in '17 and '19 he was a very different pitcher out of "Satan Field" and if he could turn things around getting out of there, he would be a much better low-moderate leverage option than what we have been seeing out of Alexander, Garcia and... *sigh* Kelly. Dunn is by NO means one of those 2 guys we are talking about that need to be added to the back end, but if Dunn figures things out, he could help with our LOOGY problem earlier in the game and could help be the bottom rung of a to be rebuilt pen for the back stretch.

    All my dreams are starting to come true.

    Just have to move Muncy up in my dream lineup

    The Dodgers are upping Joc’s reps at 1B. The hope is for him to begin to see game action at the position before the ASB. Sounds like they are going to do Pollock in CF full time, Verdugo in LF and maybe move Joc to 1B against RHP.

    And they're going to the 17th in Minnesota.

    Roberts would've thrown in the white towel an inning or two ago.

    What's actually considered full time for an injury prone underperformer?

    Actually, what an idiot.

    Probably thought it was one of Kate Upton’s boobs coming toward his face.

    Rather have Strasburg, anyway.
    20 post season innings pitched, 0.47 ERA, 0.947 WHIP
    Stras has handled the big stage better than a lot of guys. He needs a lot of maintenance, but when you look at the numbers in October, seems to be worth it.

    Get the fuck out of the cage if you consider that "working on your bunting." Got what he deserved for half assing it.

    BOTH these takes for sure.

    If I was still coaching little league, this would be my video lesson on how NOT to square up a bunt.

    NO CRYING OVER SPILT MILK ?
    ,Watching Machado make great plays with apparent ease and banging the ball everywhere, looking at Taylor struggle and Seagar self destruct physically every year now in a seemingly infinite whichever way, I sure wish we had MM out there every night. Yup.
    Idgaf who doesn't like the way he runs.
    Turner could be at second and Kike the uber utility guy, at which he's surely best.
    Another one we should have signed...
    In fact, I hope we ride this present lead into the post on into the WS and do it, because this very well may be the last shot we get for a while, if we get it that is.
    Anyone who denies the substantial improvement of the Rox and Pads is kidding themselves.

    In 2001, the city looked like Woodland Hills with fewer people and no traffic issues. Houses were in the high $185 area. Now, it's megamalls, congestion, and the same houses are double or triple the price, plus HOA nonsense. But apparently, those costs didn't dissuade the trash factor/gangsta types from moving in...
