    Just what I was thinking when I woke up today. How do we prolong this miserable Kershaw era

    Like how LAD seemingly had Kapler lined up and then Adrian and a bunch of other bums went to upper management on behalf of DR?

    I would use analytics more to adjust for park conditions, home/away splits and things like that.
    If a player sucks on the road then that is when you platoon him half the time until he starts to hit better away.
    So if you have a pitcher who has a particular style that gets wrecked at high altitudes specially at night... skip him that day for a pitcher who can better adjust to those conditions.

    I mean the dude has a legit 80 grade curveball. Generally with age those don't diminish. It is how Moyer stuck around into his mid-40's. Not saying I want him around any longer, but he's going to be. So might as well make the best of it.

    I have a way of prolonging his career. Bullpen.

    CK should have modified his mix of pitches a few years ago.

    If true, thank you Adrian.

    He was great for our MiLB system though and I would love to have him back. He initiated the healthy food on a budget thing and think that had more impact than people realize.

    I mean, yeah, a lot of people would rather have DR over Kapler, but the macro thinking here is that LAD's culture is that weak, that players can butt in and get a guy hired

    I can't debate that with you, but hiring him with no experience on a big league bench (and very, very little in the minors) would have been a mistake for a World Series caliber team.

    And the Braves PH'd for him with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th inning so he didn't get a standing ovation.


    Ouch!

    We need post season success players. We need the Coles and the Madbums of the world.

    Only bright side is the Buehler looked good...but we need an iron man/men throughout this entire team.

    He's still a work in progress.

    The real postseason bad asses don't need to be bailed out in the 7th inning.

    21 scoreless postseason innings is a bright side if I've ever seen one. Especially given the dumpster fire surrounding him

    I'm Walker's most irrational critic and I have to agree with you.
    He's stepped the fuck up every single time

    he’s basically the only one. Muncy and Turner would some honorable mentions. KIKÈ to an extent too has had some big moments that we can’t forget.
