    We could’ve had those three and Greinke or Shane Greene or Diekman or Aaron Sanchez.

    Zack no trade clause. Greene having a great season, A great season. I don't get the Sanchez love, I could be wrong on all fronts

    No one loves him but he has potential to be a good reliever and cost a 26 year old AAAA player.

    Seemed like everyone on ESPN and MLB Network loved everyone traded. I think it was Tex that got excited so maybe it stood out to me so I thought there was more love than there actually is. As for Sanchez as a reliever, Maeda has proven that he can be good reliever, Buehler has closer stuff assuming Rich Hill comes back and pitches well so he can be moved to the pen. I just think our versatility can mitigate all this hate the FO has been getting. I'd be real interested in how Kolarek does going forward. He's killed lefties and he has been pitching well in the AL East now Alexander was supposed to be that guy last year and it didn't work out.

    disappointed we didn’t get help
    but now that i’ve had a day to think about it, i’m good
    we’re still favorites to get to the ws and we didn’t lose any of our top prospects
    as i said in another thread, i think gonsolin is going to be a huge difference maker down the stretch and beyond
    and the ceiling is literally limitless on may, lux and a couple others
    the fact that smith has done so well and friedman was still unwilling to part with ruiz speaks volumes
    i’m actually excited to see how this plays out

    Charley Steiner mentions this stat on the radio like 50 times a season and I want to cry every time I hear it

    It’s an amazing unreal stat that has the biggest asterisks imaginable

    I feel like our playoff losses have given me PTSD. Met a guy at my bar the other day who was a big baseball fan and was talking about the stadiums he’s been to, mentioned going to Dodger Stadium for Game 5 of the 2013 NLCS. All I could think about was Game 6 of that series after we won 5.

    Moving these guys to uncomfortable positions makes its harder for them to get out of slumps.
    Too much new/different information coming at their brains and muscles affects their guts in a way hard to measure or convey.

    2B: Lux
    3B: Turner
    RF: Bellinger
    1B: Muncy
    SS: Seager
    CF: Verdugo

    I am fine with experimentation.
    Teams should cross train their players in the off season and get them some game reps early in the year.
    Just not really at this point in the season.
    From our outside point of view it does not seem ideal to have your making adjustments when they should be honing.

    Amen.

    May comes up and pitches to a 0.00 ERA for a month...

    "...It's just one of those things where....we like Dusty. Seeing what he's done...at this stage...is...impressive. At the same time, when you think back on the legends of Dodger baseball, Kenley is in that conversation. He understands the magnitude of the situation, he's been there, and he shows p to the ballpark every day with that mentality. It's really his World Series to lose..."

    Not since Doc Brown traveled back to the future has anyone seen late September in early August quite like @THINKBLUE

    We all have PTSD (as someone sagely posted earlier) if we've followed this team for even a decade now, let alone those of us who go back to Sandy and Don, or Osteen and Garvey, or even Karros and his gay boy Piazza ...

    Fact is, whatever it takes, we all want the same shit to go down (homo) in October ... We want Conan's credo. We want what is best in life.

    [​IMG]

    I want Kate Upton to lament. I want Jessica Pearce and Tiffany Price to wail & gnash their teeth outside Fenway. I want to see Aaron Judge weeping while Jen Flaum blows Bellinger after he hits three off the monument in Game 5 at Spankmee Stadium.

    I'd mention the WAGS of competing NL teams, but those teams all smoke pole, so anyway ...

    But I'm not hopeful. I'm vengeful and mean, but not hopeful.

    I'm still trying to figure out why the FO didn't sign Kimbrel. You didn't have to give up picks, you knew the trajectory on this Dodger team (at least playoff bound if not a WS appearance), and it was just money.

    Given the BP woes, that should have been a priority....especially seeing that pitching was the Dodgers down fall for the past 2 WSs.

    Would it behoove the FO to at least pay where they have a weakness?
