    When your biggest free-agent signing is the worst outfielder on the team.

    Another three hits for Alex

    Don't look now, but Verdugo is third (tied) on the team in RBI's, despite being a part time player.

    Ballgame.

    Joc/Righty Platoon, Verdugo, Harper should've been the OF.

    Pollock is a half measure.
    The main thing is the prospect.
    You bring in the half measure FA to fill a role you would rather have a prospect fill.
    But you don't just give a prospect a job on this team.
    They need to earn it or have the baseball gods grant it to him.
    And the way you do that juju is to sign a half measure veteran.
    This is a baseball rule. The unwritten kind.
    You plop the veteran in hoping that he does well but at the same time you have a key prospect or two ready to take his spot the moment he gets injured or has a bad first half of the year.
    If you sign a fully realized star instead of a half measure you can no longer do this kind of thing.
    You lose the flexibility.

    righties
    LF: Joc
    SS: Seager
    3B: Turner
    CF: Bellinger
    1B: Muncy
    2B: Kike
    RF: Verdugo or Pollock
    C : Barnes

    lefties
    2B: Kike
    SS: Seager
    3B: Turner
    CF: Bellinger
    LF: Pollock
    RF: Verdugo
    1B: Muncy or Freese
    C : Martin

    These should be the set lineups so everyone knows their roles.

    Maybe Pollock has that quality in the clubhouse that is helping this squad have multiple guys having career starts to the season?
    I am good with Pollock as Joc's platoon vs lefties. And he should also get every other start vs righties to give one of the regulars a breather.

    Good job Dodgers.
    Maeda looked good and the bullpen didn’t fuck it up. I wish Sborz would get into a ballgame.

    Verdugo is legit or what? Sheesh

    I’m going out tomorrow. If we lose you can blame me as the curse of the anti sweep.

    the lyrics to that song are from the plan to depopulate the earth to 15 million in order to save and preserve it

    hippies = elitist nazis
    peace = death from war
    columbia/columbine = dove peace symbol
    america = district of peace
    neanderthal death rune with rebirth snake eating its tail encircling it = hippy peace sign
    neanderthal death rune upside down = nazi SS genetic engineering childbirth program symbol
    american peace movement = cultural rebirth of the nazi reich children of the corn
    rest in peace = dead christian
    peace be upon him = dead muslim
    peace out = ;)

    And Joc Pederson is top 10 in MLB OPS.
    Then again so is Grandmal.
    Verdugo is on track to be on the ROY shortlist of he keeps it up.

    Starting pitching stretching it into the 7th inning.

    Joe Kelly with a spotless inning.

    Hitters driving in runs with two outs and RISP.

    someone want to explain to me roberts logic for putting cody in the on deck circle?
    and then why let kelly hit if you're going to lift him anyway?
    and not buying the "if gale had gotten on base" or "not wanting to burn hitters" arguments either

    By the time you reach 60 Rube, you will either be considered a mad genius or in an institution.
    WAR IS OVER

    If you want it.

    I'm still trying with this guy Pollock.
    But, tbh, I'm not seeing a whole lot to chub up over.
    If he's a half measure, then sure sure is an expensive one. And he must be the half that is empty, in the optimist' s 'glass half full' silly shit.

    War is over if you want it = War is over, you lost, surrender so we can win now because it actually is not over but we don't want to wait for the win we know is coming because it is inevitable so just give us the win NOW!

    From these types of hippies, Hillary was born.
    The entitlement is strong. Born to win are they.
    So they never need to learn how to win.
    And that is where you separate the boys from the girls.
    Who can make the 18th hole.
    They don't give those jackets away for being good enough.
    You gotta earn your way into that special room where only the masters can stay.
    You gotta win your way in.
