    Kenley will throw a tantrum just like he did when they moved him from catcher and when we brought in relievers in the past.

    Pretty good opening series. Offense looks exciting, starting pitching looks like it’ll be fine, but now we pray some relievers can have a breakout year

    Great win. I feel like I said this 30 times last year, but should've been a sweep.

    One thing to blow it, another to completely implode.

    Fantastic efforts in that 8th inning.
    All around.
    Tbh, I never thought they would get Cody on his dribbler. Feels good to have faith like that in a player again.
    The best victory of the series for me.
    Bravo lineup.

    i thought that first hitter had taken him deep tbh
    lot of balls over the plate and generous strike zone
    didn't see him Friday

    • Offense looked good this series. I'm not freaking out on the lefty thing just yet as Ray was all over the fucking place and then he'd start hitting the corner or landing his slider the second he needed to. Orel was spot on when he said that he was pitching effectively wild. Lull you to sleep then throw 3 perfect pitches.
    • Didn't watch the game today, but Monday said he could see that Buehler's mechanics completely broke down. If anything, Roberts fucked up by not getting him out sooner. Can't take a risk like that when this dude had 1 fucking spring game.
    • Muncy looks off, which that fucking blows. I am not losing faith yet as he had a stretch last year where he was shit and then he pulled out of it to be a monster. He has shown he can adjust, so I am hoping we see that.
    • Verdugo is taking some very confident swings. Should be able to get plenty of AB's, but the start by Hernandez will make things a bit tougher.
    • Sign Seager and Bellinger to extensions, please....
    • Holy fucking shit the bullpen is total fucking garbage. Stop fucking around and go get Kimbrel right fucking now. Keep Jansen at closer if you have to, but they gotta stack the pen and not pray for some miracle later on. Jansen's velo is worrisome, Kelly is off to a masterful start and Jesus H Christ, what is wrong with Baez?! He looked fantastic all spring and now is throwing meatballs.
