    Definitely feel this season's lion's share of success rests offensivey on the increasingly smaller ( it looks to me) shoulders of Corey Seager. An element that was totally absent from the lineup last year will have to take up the slack of no Puig, and although hated quite thoroughly here as totally useless, Kemp...who earlier in the year, (which counts by the way), kept the heavily listing Dodgers in it all, like or admit that fact or not.
    And.of course, the huge question mark of the pitching staff, so adored and so talented, but key elements in a Boeing Aircraft power dive and/or simply absent for whatever reasons.
    And maybe Dave Robots brain...although it sounds and looks like he is considered the Steven Hawking of baseball managers by the media.

    Yeah Kenley and Seager are the guys to watch for me. If Kenley comes out throwing 91 I swear to god they better call Kimbrel

    I hope the team is fun and Enrique doesn’t choke away his opportunity to be the everyday 2B. NL west sucks so much I just want the team to be fun

    Our 1-6 vs RHP is sick, might fuck around and have 5 guys with a .900 OPS vs RHP

    lot of ifs in there but its hard not to think these guys are going to be a terror to face
    would really like to see us cut down on the platoon thing and give guys a chance to play everyday
    specifically Belli and Kike

    Should be dangerous and it is not like Hernandez or Barnes are easy outs either. Hernandez has shown over the last year that he has turned into a bit of grinder who doesn't K a whole lot and Barnes looks WAY more like his 2017 version over whatever the fuck he was last year. I feel like team's that face our opponents in the series after us will be getting a lot of worn down pitching staffs.

    Okay. All the theoretical concepts will be tested. Here’s where the rubber hits the road.

    Let’s do this.

    (Huh....huh, huh, huh, huh.....he said rubber)

    You mean Joe"Kimbrel" Kelly? I'm pretty sure that's who we' ll get.
    We need to save $ so we can get the NL Hr champion when he becomes a FA.
    Y'know, that Puig guy on the Reds.

    Kolton Wong just MURDERED a Chacin fastball off the car in CF at Miller, then Bader crushed the next pitch as well. Chacin carried that staff last year, but they look a good bit weaker this season. If he is nothing close to what he was in 2018, they will struggle. The Brewers are very similar to the 2017 Dodgers. A whole bunch of breakthrough seasons, plus a ton of luck. A lot of folks have them taking big steps back this year.

    From what I’ve read, seems like the only platoon in place is with Joc who will platoon with Taylor. Berlinger and muncy will be given the chance to play against lefties as much as possible meanwhile also letting freese/Taylor play.
