    Kenley pipes it right down Broadway all the time and gets batters to whiff. He has great stuff.

    Probably, I think they may roll with more hitters than pitchers and rest certain pitchers for series.
    Cingrani might not get on the roster for the first round if we play a team without a lot of dominant left handed hitters. Or vice versa.
    The offense seems to be getting settled, the experiments seem to be that Joc will be split with Taylor in CF.
    And the plan is for Adrian and Ethier to prove they can play and hit well enough vs righties to really make both of our lineups long and hard to beat.
    The main lineup will probably be like this...

    2B: Taylor
    SS: Seager
    3B: Turner
    LF: Belly
    1B: Adrian
    C: Grandal
    CF: Joc
    RF: Puig

    Vs Lefties things would start to change.

    2B: Forsythe
    SS: Seager
    3B: Turner
    1B: Belly
    CF: Taylor
    LF: Barnes
    RF: Kike
    C : Farmer

    The bench of Forsythe, Barnes, Kike, Farmer, and Utley may be joined by Andre Ethier at some point.
    Ethier if healthy can be a .300 hitter vs righties and have mediocre power. Basically an old slow white Andre Toles pinch hitting off the bench.

    a lot of options to be sure
    the bullpen concerns me though
    guys like fields, stripling, dayton and baez (lately) don't inspire a lot of confidence

    I'm starting to get nervous that we won't finish the season over .500

    Hope they're looking to add another arm at the end of the month.

    Like to think they could have done better at the deadline than the two LHs they got.

    its like striplings is a disease we caught in the bp
    fields is definitely gonna grip and leave a fb over the plate and its gonna hurt
    dayton i don't think is a factor w cingrani and watson added
    even avilan might be an after thought
    what i don't get is why there isn't more talk of maeda and ryu out of the pen
    those guys are throwing great and i just don't get how you can leave them off for a stripling or a dayton
    you see the looks on their faces and kenta and hin jun are bearing down
    or maybe they're just asian idk (racist but necessary)
    but guys like baez and strip are feeling the heat and its not even hot yet
    i want the toughest guys getting the ball, not the guy who performed in a role during the season
    i'd also like to see paredes get the ball some more before its over
    guys like that contribute on WS champions and no one knows where they came from
    right now i get that our secondary starters are eating the innings but in the last month i think they should relieve
    definitely scared about how this shakes out but i have to take a deep breath and trust in the nerds

    Even though they're throwing well, Maeda and Ryu are throwing well as starters.

    How they would do out of the pen is anyone's guess.

    I actually saw it for the 1st time. Didn't remember you were happa and I'm all for self effacing humor I do it all of the time. Was your mother or father in this case from Japan or from here because that image came from WWII days when hatred for the Japanese was at it's heights. Who knows what triggers thoughts on a board maybe in the moment I thought of my mother who lived through the bombings and TRIED to post a inane comment that blew up into this stuff. Like I wrote it was just FYI. Post on brother.

    True...but how much worse than the HR Club of Baez, Cingrani, Watson, Stripling and Stewart can they be??? Damn, even Morrow is getting clipped these days. Avilan and Dayton are not exactly the end all either.
    This has not been good relief pitching...and the lineup's raking is the saving grace...these games they were inserted into we were ahead, and the other side ran out of innings, so we won. Otherwise, they sucked, let's face it. In Watson's case, we just lost.
    And when the O is less than the usual juggernaut like last night, we just let them tie it up and go ahead and beat us flat out.
    Imo, the five inning starters, all year long, have produced this overall recent nosedive in effectiveness. And it's a good thing they can play the DL game now, or it may have had a more realistic result.
    Maybe too early to actually assign them, due to CK out now, and they are both
    pitching well, but eventually, they have to become part of the "great experiment", the new narrative.
    Don't you think?

    mom was from japan
    her parents (my grandparents) owned 5 square miles of farmland which is now artesia blvd in gardena
    the us govt seized it and locked the family up in manzanar following pearl harbor
    when they were ultimately released from the camp they did not get their land back no apology, no concessions -- they had to start from square one all over again
    finally in 1984 (long after my grandparents were gone) the us govt decided to do "reparation"
    my mother and her siblings were given $125,000 -- the value of the land back in 1941
    not exactly fair for what was taken from them -- mostly my mom's age 19, 20 and 21 year's
    she never talked about it much, only when my brother and i asked her questions
    one time i remember asking her if she had ever seen anyone killed while in camp...
    her response, "oh yes"
    i never asked her anything about manzanar after that

    as far as you and me...
    you're a good dude doughty, and you know i like you (no homo)
    if something truly bothers you, pm me
    otherwise it's all good bro! :headpat:
