    Oh, and thanks so much Padres "defense" for allowing us to score one run...we couldn't do it without you.
    Again.

    the past two games have been pathetic
    kiké and joc should be on the pine for swinging out of their asses down 3 runs with the bases empty
    selfish idiots

    That's how they roll. They can't help themselves.

    Going have to scramble for runs again this afternoon. Garlick, Barnes, Kike and the slumping Turner and Muncy in the lineup.

    Might be a SD laugher. Three, maybe four Padre HRs today. Maybe 6.
    I just hope they're going to have some mercy on us and let us score an unearned run, so we don't get shut out, at least.
    It's up to the Pads, unfortunately...we really have nothing to fucking do with it at all.
    Not capable of producing our own earned runs these days.
    Sadly, we must OBEY.

    If we should have to go through anyone from the NLW as the WC winner, that's all she wrote for us.
    Book it.

    8-4 vs Arizona (.667)
    5-3 vs San Diego (.625)
    8-2 vs Colorado (.800)
    8-5 vs San Francisco (.615)

    I know the past week has been frustrating with lapses in focus, fatigue, scrubs filling in all over, and lack of offense, but with health and time I think we will be okay.

    Let us not be distracted from our bullpen as our true enemy. No particular team or division.

    We have a winning record against every national league team except STL.

    I was aware of our success so far. But that's in the books. Not ahead for us.
    Everyone gets up for us, and plays their hearts out. Understandably tired of the LAD representative of the NLW and cultivating a losing, repetitive environment.
    And yeah, I agree the bp sucks...but what's the difference how or who we lose to?
    And it's an old bb thing...you have to score some runs. We don't do that either now.
    And no matter what the record is so far, we still have Dave Roberts as the manager.
    It won't happen.

    Yeah, but were they not playing their hearts out for the games that are in the books?
    We cannot predict the future. All we can do is look at our record and roster against theirs, as well as our most recent track record against them head to head.
    I was certain that Arizona would give us trouble in the 2017 division series, especially with Robbie Ray, J.D. Martinez, etc. And we swept them.

    We lost 16 out of 17 games at one point couple years ago. Baseball just sucks. Maybe more for us than other teams. But we will see. I think if we are healthy and firing on all cylinders, none of these NL West teams have a chance in a 7 game series.

    results are going to be results. / 162 games we are going to lose some and look like s***.

    The bullpen, however, is a singular component that has shown over a large sample size that it will be a problem

    Really this all sounds pretty unconvincing from a guy who pronounces players as garbage and trash, and now some of them are the biggest assets we have, tbh.
    And whatever skills and talent we do have, Roberts will find a way to dilute and misuse it...eventually.
    And sure, you can't predict the future, but many times in the past, I have written that we will not win with Roberts as manager. So far, I've been correct. Not that being right is important really, not at all, we should all learn, but for a fan who wants to see the " best team in baseball" finally win, it's a fucking bad joke. I'm not laughing anymore.
    I sincerely hope I'm wrong.

    And to answer your initial question, which I forgot to...no they weren't playing their hearts out. They didn't have a sense of their worth yet, and they do now. It has taken this long to realize that against us, and that's s why they are outplaying us.

    This FO has to realize at some point the Roberts is not some kind of tactical genius, especially with handling the pitching staff. The FO has to essentially provide Roberts with an idiot proof roster. When it comes to the offense, I think we’re pretty close.

    The pitching on the other hand....not sure why they are failing on that front....repeatedly.

    How much pull does the pitching and/or bullpen coaches have on making pitching related decisions in-game?

    I am on your team, Zoo. While I do believe individuals like Kike versus right-handed pitching are garbage, Barnes is just garbage in general, and the idea that Kenley Jansen is supposed to close games in the world series is a garbage concept, I'm still trying to see the bigger picture here. They can't win a hundred and sixty-two games and play flawlessly all season as a team.

    We can isolate some specific concerns, but looking sloppy for periods of time as a team is inevitable. It is for every team.

    That's all I got, man
