    I thought watching Kenley Jansen attempt to close was the ugliest performance of the night until I watched Jenna attempt to tie the game.

    Two sorry ass losers.

    Jenna was trying to win the game. No way was he trying to get a single.

    He K'd earlier in the game as a PH. Easy to miss. Only took three pitches.

    Things look rosey.
    Jansen, Baez, and Kelly all suck.
    So what are the winning chances when your 3 back end relief pitchers can't get off the mound in any given inning without either giving up a run or letting runners score.

    and here's davey w the wrap up...

    "Right now, I think that the way that he’s been throwing… obviously tonight was a blown save. The command after that first hitter — there was some good throws in there, but with Duffy, not putting him away, and I thought he had Choi punched right there, but I’m not really entertaining that thought right now.

    "I thought he got squeezed on the Choi pitch — it flipped the inning."

    what a buffoon

    The buffoon spoke the truth.
    For one of the rare times, I think this statement by Robots was an endangered species type of statement of clarity and accuracy. That miserably missed strike three did alter the inning, irrevocably. It's a totally different game then, and nothing is the same. No matter how much loathing goes Jansen' s way. Everyone knows Kenley is weak and shakey, but it doesn't change the facts as shown.
    Now, not saying Jansen couldn't/ wouldn't find a way to fuck it up alternatively,he isa very creative loser way too often, but that is a prime example of blatant incompetence changing everything.
    This fucking "the ump had a bad night" bullshit is way too common.
    At least BB could make a team allowance of say, two ball/ strike challenges per game, and use the electronic K zone as the decision maker...for a start anyway. It would take no time at all.
    Until they do away with the plate umping entirely.
    Do something.

    Aye, agree.
    Looking at Smith and Martin lately, and going back some, why not. All the stupid experiments that have gone on, why not a little Barnes ?
    All three can catch actually, but offensively, after Will's initial heroics, the C position collectively, is pretty meek.
    And couldn't help wondering it would have been prudent to keep d' Arnaud, definitely.
    Could have used Martin to go somewhere else.

    it was a nice job of framing and might even have been a ball
    either way a pro gets through it
    every pitcher on every team has the same umps doing the same thing
    blowing 4 of your last 8 ops just means you blow plain and simple
    anything else is bluster

    As I said, everybody and six motherfuckers that look like them, knows that Kenley Jansen is as finished as the mom and pop stores. Do you actually think that I think he's still good?
    "A pro gets through it" then is something that applies to every other player in a uniform...y' know, pros.
    If they fail miserably like that tub of goo does again and again, and they all do again and again, then shouldn't they not have failed, because they're pros? Sorry, ain't buying that reasoning based on laser focused hatred.
    I can't stand Kenley either, but come to think of it, why wish that he gets scrambled badly each time he goes out there, as you do?. Aren't we all Dodger fans, and want them always to win ? No matter how?
    Do you still think Robots is going to NOT use him ? That possibility has come and gone quite a while ago. He's going to use him, so him giving it up just results in another L for us.
    He will he use then, lunatic Kelly, who can equal KJs nightmares at any time? Baez ? The two rookie sensations?
    If the ball is within the electronic rectangle, all or part, it's a strike. Had zero to do with framing...had to do with shoddy job performances.

    One thing that Kenley has accomplished, at least, is effectively lowering my postseason expectations to practically nil, so that the heartbreak this year will be quite mild.

    Fat 1Bs continue to haunt the Dodgers.

    The one thing keeping me positive is that Jansen might be a top 3 reliever on every other NL contender, other then maybe the Brewers. In the AL, he wouldn’t, but you’d be surprised to see how bad even the Astros bullpen is. Kenley isn’t very good and our bullpen is scary but there are so many bad bullpens this year. The 7-9 innings of every playoff game are gonna be insane this year

    I’m sure we’re overly harsh, but Kenley’s blowups just seem more epic.

    In any case, it’s too late to fix. That ship had sailed at the beginning of the season.

    you might want to watch the replay cause Smith grabs it below his knees and pulls it up
    definitely a strike 70% of the time but still on the edge
    to point to that one call as defining in any of this is just an excuse imo
    failure is part of the game but his mediocrity and refusal to learn new pitches make him...not the closer pretty much but somehow he keeps getting the call
    he's nervous out there like Baez used to be
    as far as laser focused hatred of the man its just not accurate
    the hatred comes from watching a has been that the league has figured out refuse to evolve
    and a manager that bows down to his legend and makes excuses based on the one pitch
    i hate rooting for him to be humiliated again and again but its the only shot we have
    if thats what the program is going to be going forward its over

    Fair enough.
    but as a point, where he catches it, or where he brings it up to, is after the electronic fact...that being, the image you see on the screen with the rectangle and the circle is where the ball was when it crosses the zone.
    With robo umps, framing will mean nothing. There will be no one to fool.

    Yeah, so right.
    Pretty sad when you think that so many Dodger fans are accepting this fate already...it really is.
    The cockeyed optimist of yesteryear is drastically on the wane.
    Comes from decimating experiences with loss for decades, I guess.
